The list of the wealthiest citizens of the Russian Federation is again headed by co-owner of Novatek and Sibur Leonid Mikhelson.
Today, the American magazine Forbes presented a rating of world billionaires, which included 96 Russians - 12% more than last year. This is associated with the stabilization of the Russian economy.
The first place in the ranking of the richest Russians is unchanged. Leonid Mikhelson, the co-owner of Novatek and Sibur, holds the belt again. In the world ranking, he takes the 46th position. Aleksey Mordashev (Severstal) ranked second, the third - Mikhail Lisin (NLMK).
In addition to representatives of the top ten Forbes also talked about three Russian businessmen, who appeared in the rating of the publication. This is Roman Trotsenko, who controls 50% of Novaport holding ($1.6 billion), Sergey Gordeev ($1.5 billion), Alexander Klyachin, the founder and owner of Azimut Hotels and the owner of the Metropol hotel ($1.3 billion).
The federal court in Washington rejected the claim of Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska to the Associated Press on libel charges because of publications about his collaboration with Donald Trump's former chief of staff, Paul Manafort, on Tuesday, October 17.
