 Akhmetov updated his fleet and bought a new Falcon 7Х business jet, like Putin's. PHOTOS

While analysts are counting losses of the richest Ukrainian businessman Rinat Akhmetov from the war in the Donbas, he purchased a Falcon 7X business class jet.

This is evidenced by several websites that collect information about the aircraft and track their movements (http://www.airframes.org/, http://planefinder.net/, http://www.planepictures.net/), Censor.NET reports citing Glavkom.

The market value of the aircraft, which is also called the plane of Arab sheikhs, reaches $50 million. Two similar planes are used by a special squad of Rossia state aviation company for transportation of senior officials of the Russian Federation.

The aircraft has a flight range of 11,000 km without refueling and is used for transatlantic flights.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and President Vladimir Putin each have one Falcon 7X, while Akhmetov, apparently, has two.

Second Falcon 7X - tail number M-SCMG - is registered to the BlueSky Int Management Company (Virgin Islands). Professional Pilots website links the company with the Ukrainian businessman. The aircraft is registered at the Borispyl airport which also supports the version. The second Falcon 7X was registered four years ago.

And these are not all 'wings' owned by Akhmetov

On Monday, March 23, applications tracking the aircraft movements showed A319-133X, tail number P4-RLA flying across the English Channel towards mainland Europe. The businessman's initials in the tail number speak for themselves (Rinat Leonidovich Akhemtov). A319-133X is a cabin business jet. The same one can be found, for example, in the Venezuelan president's fleet. The plane was officially registered to the System Capital Management Company about five years ago.

Until a few months ago, Akhmetov had two of these aircrafts. The second Airbus A319-133X was registered directly in his name (tail number P4-ARL).

However, in September 2014 the plane moved to a new owner in Africa - the Government of Côte d'Ivoire. This is how the plane looks like today:

As seen, the ship was painted in the national colors of the African state.

Last year, the aircraft was ten years old. Perhaps the age was the reason why Akhmetov decided to update his fleet. The conditions under which the Government of Côte d'Ivoire received the plane of the Ukrainian billionaire are unknown.

In February 2013, Prime Minister of Côte d'Ivoire Daniel Kablan Duncan met with Ukrainian deputy minister of Foreign Affairs and stated that Ukraine had an interest in participating in diamond mining and supplying Ukrainian grain to his country.
