Marianne Grin – Rich in Dollars but Poor in Rubles (Марианны Гринь – Многие долларов, несколько рублей)

Slide1

США паспорте – Марианна Гринь
US passport – Marianne Grin

On December 26, 2012, (Марианны Гринь) participated in a protest at the US Consulate in St Petersburg, Russia, in support of a proposed law that will prohibit Americans from adopting orphans in Russia. News reports showed Grin standing over her 10-year old daughter, tearing up her expired US passport.

It is hardly the first time Grin has dragged her children into her conflicts, and inciting a 10-year old girl to destroy an expired passport for the cameras is just another chapter.

By using a small child as a front, Grin is hiding her own US citizenship and her wealth in the USA.  It is documented beyond doubt that Grin is as rich in dollars, as she is careful to appear poor in rubles when she goes seeking help from various Russian officials and organizations.

Wealthy American Lawyer

Grin is a wealthy US citizen and a US-trained lawyer with multiple bank accounts and property holdings in the USA.  She has often commented in articles in Russian tabloid media about her efforts to return to the children to the USA, and her unsuccessful visits to the US Consulate to obtain new US passports without her husband’s consent.

Until now, she has not hidden her desire to leave Russia, including in her interview on the Iene television news program.

Raised as an American

When she was a child, Grin’s mother took her and her brother to the USA, where her family continues to live.  Her mother, who previously had worked as journalist in Moscow, arrived in the USA with nothing in 1980.  Fortunately for Grin, private and public welfare institutions gave her access to some of the USA’s best universities.

Professionally, Grin received huge salaries in New York, Paris, and then Italy, working as a lawyer in international banking and contracts for US corporations.

What did she do with all of her wealth?

Keeping the Money Out of Russia

In 1999, Grin and her former husband moved from the USA to Italy, where three of their four children were born (the oldest was born in New York).

Monthly salary - MG

Grin continued to earn good money in Italy, as her monthly pay slip and Italian and US tax returns showed.  Grin, the new anti-American, paid her taxes in Italy and the US.

Her income just from her one employer in Italy was close to $170,000 per year.

SheItalian taxes - MG declared this in her Italian tax statement.

With her wealth growing, Grin carefully avoided  ever letting her money touch Russian soil.  She did this by keeping multiple US bank accounts for this purpose, as in these examples, where she transferred over $8,000 in one month and then another $16,000 the next month from banks in Italy and Germany:

While she avoided paying any taxes in Russia, Grin treated the USA (home to her money and properties) better. She was so loyal in paying taxes that the American government even

US tax payment to MGrefunded what she had overpaid, as shown in the US Treasury check to Grin in 2010.

Grin’s Foreign Assets

In her divorce proceedings, Grin declared to be the owner of three houses in California and an apartment in Italy. She did not deny taking all of her and her husband’s years of savings (this was documented by banking documents) but she did deny owning the apartment she currently occupies in St. Petersburg. (Apparently, what she owns in Russia is denied in other places: what she owns in other places is denied in Russia.)

Grin’s multiple bank accounts in the USA keep her dollars out of site of Russian authorities. Although she is a rich corporate lawyer, a graduate of Harvard Law School, she is just a poor Russian mother to anyone naive enough not to inquire.

Apparently, Grin assumes Russians will only look at her young daughter destroying an expired passport, and not notice Grin’s hypocrisy in wanting to deny Russian orphans the benefits that she received growing up in America, and that she continues to receive through her financial holdings there.

In just one of her US private banking arrangements, Grin earns close to $5,000 per year just in interest. And this is just one of her many bank accounts in the USA.  (Grin has also maintained bank accounts in other countries outside of Russia.)

  1. I am so incredibly sorry for these children and hope that they always remember deep down they will forever have the unconditional love of their family and community in Florence and California.

    These facts in this post are absolutely shocking. And to think that M. Grin also asked the Russian Orthodox Church in Florence, Italy for money just months after she abducted the children!! So she in fact didn’t actually need it and to think that she asked a church for money when she was not truly in need is just downright shameful. Those who know Grin know that she has always spoken distainfully of any Christian institution, fashioning herself increasingly as a radical Chabad Jewish woman after her separation from her husband and precisely during the period that she was asking the Russian Orthodox church for financial support!

    So many of us supporters of the father and these children’s welfare have wondered often about Grin’s financial resources and how she is surviving in Russia all this time since having fled there, not working and focusing all her energy on this legal and emotionally draining battle she has waged that surely costs her heavy fees with lawyers to pay while still having to provide for these 4 children- 4 children, I must add, who are losing out on thier childhoods and the true parental love and nourishment every child needs.

    Very good point about the hypocrasy that she grew up in the US and benefited from everything American growing up, all the way to her Harvard education and her Wall Street law experiences and the American corporation in Italy from which she continued to gain wealth. And now we see her protesting in Russia with her youngest children obediently at her side, against US – Russian adoptions. I fear for all these children, but seeing that Grin’s 10 year old, her only female child, is being encouraged to rip her old, expired US passport for the cameras is yet another horrifying example of how this mother is slowly but surely trying – whether consciuosly or not- to destroy her children’s past.

    Marianne Grin, you can tell your child to rip and destroy her passport and you can try to destroy her life, but you will never destroy her soul or her heart.

  2. How the Russians have been fooled by this diabolical RICH AMERICAN LAWYER!!! If they actually stop the adoption of poor Russian orphans by Americans, they deserve Marianne Grin.
