MOSCOW, August 19. /TASS/. Russian Presidential Chief of Staff Sergey Ivanov has donated 450,000 rubles ($6,800) from his personal finances for supporting the Vorontsov Palace in Crimea’s Alupka, the museum’s website said.
One of the main problems of the Alupka Palace and Park Museum is the restoration of unique items to preserve the authentic decoration of its halls. Ivanov promised to lend assistance in this matter. The money donated by the presidential chief of staff will be spent on the development and restoration of the adornment of the museum halls.
During his recent visit to the museum Sergey Ivanov viewed the palace complex, the exposition halls and the park.
Ivanov told reportes on Monday that he had spent a seven-day vacation in Crimea. "I admit that I spent my 7-day vacation in late July and early August in Crimea. I liked it very much. I had a nostalgia for visiting Alupka, the seaside, to travel around, to swim," he said. According to Ivanov, he has been familiar with Crimea’s southern coast since his early childhood, when his parents and he spent holidays there every year. "You know, there is such a notion as somebody’s little homeland. My little homeland is Leningrad, St.Petersburg and the Leningrad region. I would add here the whole southern coast of Crimea."
He added that it was in Crimea that he had learned to swim, dive from high rocks, catch crabs and shrimps.
According to his declaration, Kremlin administration head Sergey Ivanov earned $311,500 in 2014.
