Forbes: The Richest Russians
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 Moscow Government has already held more than fifty tenders for the construction of houses, which later were included in the renovation program. Most of the contracts were won by longtime acquaintances and countrymen of the vice mayor of the capital.
While the media spread information that Abramovich and his wife have split ‘peacefully’ and settled all the financial issues in advance, Darya Zhukova has retained famous divorce lawyer Raymond Tooth who used to represent Irina Malandina, the previous wife of Abramovich, in 2007. The CrimeRussia has found that Zhukova has a good chance to become one of the five richest women in Russia and possibly topple Elena Baturina with her $1 billion fortune.
