Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich has transferred $92.3 million worth of Upper East Side properties to his ex, modern art czarina Dasha Zhukova, according to city property records.

While construction continues on Zhukova’s megamansion – three East 75th Street townhouses being combined – Zhukova is living luxuriously in an East 64th Street mansion that is currently owned by a mysterious Russian who has not stepped foot in the US since the sanctions were imposed, sources told the Post. (The Russian bought the mansion for $42.5 million in 2008, sources said.)

“Dasha and Roman have a Russian friend who can’t use his home, so they rented it for a few years while work is being done on the megamansion,” a source told the Post. The couple, who have two children together, have been separated for a year.

The megamansion combination project is being designed by renowned firm Herzog & de Meuron, and will even include a pool, Page Six reported.

Property deeds that have just hit public record reveal that the couple owns more New York real estate than had previously been reported.

On Sept. 14, the city recorded the transfer of the three townhouses at 9, 11 and 13 E. 75th St. from Roman Abramovich to Dasha Zhukova for a total $74 million. In addition, Abramovich transferred 15 E. 75th St. to Zhukova for $16.5 million. (11, 13 and 15 are the ones being combined after June approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.)

Abramovich also transferred a fourth floor co-op at 225 E. 73rd St. to Zhukova for $900,000, as well as another first floor co-op at 215 E. 73rd St. for another $900,000, according to property records.

In the property records, Abramovich listed a Moscow address for himself, while Zhukova listed the Upper East Side mansion where she is currently living. The transfers are part of their divorce settlement.

The double-wide, five-story townhouse on East 64th Street where Zhukova is living was previously owned by the late international art dealer Alec Wildenstein and his then-wife, Jocelyn Wildenstein, and it was a battleground in their divorce – allegedly where Alec threatened Jocelyn at gunpoint. Zhukova’s current mansion is also three doors down from the former Wildenstein gallery – which Len Blavatnik bought for a record $90 million earlier this year, making it the most expensive townhouse in the city.

Abramovich recently became an Israeli citizen after delays in the renewal of his visa by the British government, even though he owns the Chelsea Football Club, a London soccer team. He will reportedly live in a mansion in Tel Aviv, a former hotel he purchased in 2015 for about $25 million from Yaron Varsano, husband of Israeli “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot.
