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).
Rolan Gagoev, accused of swindling in respect of producer Yury Glotser’s family, has admitted his guilt and made a plea agreement with the Prosecutor's Office. His testimony gave the injured party hope to bring the fraud's paymasters to justice.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
