Who tops Forbes list of Russian billionaires?
This time the list was headed by owner of Severstal (vertically-integrated steelmaking and mining company) Aleksey Mordashov.
The Forbes magazine published a new rating of Russian billionaires. This time, owner of Severstal Aleksey Mordashov is on the top of the list with a fortune in $16.8 billion.
Previous leader of the rating Leonid Mikhelson has lost $2.2 billion according to the estimates of the magazine - his fortune is estimated in $16.2 billion at the moment and it is the second spot of the rating. Reduction of prices of Novatek’s (Russian gas company) stocks became the main reason of such a sharp recession, in comparison with February 2017 they have fallen in price almost by a quarter.
The main owner of NLMK (iron and steel company) Vladimir Lisin closes top three as it was in February, with the result in $16.1 billion. It is possible that next time he may force Michelson out of the second spot.
It is remarkable that according to Bloomberg both Mikhelson and Lisin are losing not only to Mordashov but also to Vladimir Potanin ($16.6 billion) and Viktor Vekselberg ($15.5 billion).
The deputy director of the institution Imuschestvo (Property), Alexander Ivanov, and deputy director of the property fund of St. Petersburg, Ilya Zhinkin, gave companies the pre-emptive right to buy out the areas on Nevsky.
The opposition leader was detained in the afternoon of February 22 in Moscow while he was walking out of a dental clinic. Navalny is accused of a second participation in an unsanctioned event, for which he faces up to 30 days of jail.
No violations have been revealed in the criminal prosecution of Colonel Zakharchenko’s family members. The appeal of lawyer Emelyanov to the president was forwarded to the Prosecutor General's Office and the ICR.
