American billionaire Robert Kraft hopes that US President Donald trump will help to return his ring, which “withdrew” from Russian leader Vladimir Putin in 2005, Fox News reports.
We are talking about the ring, which is awarded to the winner of the final match in the American football championship Super Bowl. Its cost is estimated at 25 thousand dollars. Note that Kraft owns the team, the New England Patriots.
In 2005, the billionaire arrived in Saint Petersburg in a group of American businessmen, where he met with Putin. Kraft showed the ring to Putin, who took it and put it in his pocket, saying that he might kill someone.
According to him, he repeatedly appealed to the American authorities with the request to help to return the ring, but they distanced themselves from such ideas, so as not to spoil U.S.-Russian relations. Kraft can make a similar ring with the inscription “Putin” instead, which is located in Russia.
As stated in the Kremlin in 2013, Putin is ready to send American billionaire Robert Kraft “some other ring, which can buy for your money” if a businessman really feel “excruciating pain” from loss.
In turn, the official representative belonging to the Kraft football club New England Patriots claimed that the story of the ring was a joke.
