Answer: no, I really don’t think so. He’s quite reserved about his origins and even doings, but, as far as can be generally known, his father belonged to some KGB section linked to the ‘proper presentation of facts’. Although not very much in knowledge of his actual father’s doings, he tends to move inside of the same realm of reality structuring.
His income is assured by some investments in the high tech environment in Russia, mainly linked to the possibility of acquisition of information in random legal ways. But, as quite wealthy this way without having to bother himself too much about the world, he uses to sell his abilities in private spheres concerning information acquisition and investigation, reason why he often spends his time in quite obscure environments.
Conclusion: he does more or less what he likes.
Unluckily he can’t sell beauty, and quite shy on this behalf, he has never pushed some pretensions further than what his image in the mirror may allow him to do – he says, but he tends to exaggerate.
