Russian 'Forbes' Issues List of 100 Richest Russians

The Russian edition of "Forbes" magazine published its list of the 100 richest Russians on 22 April, Russian and international media reported. According to the magazine, the estimated total wealth of the 100 increased by $4 billion over last year to $141 billion, while the average age of people on the list fell from 48 years to 44.

Chukotka Autonomous Okrug Governor Roman Abramovich, the main owner of Sibneft, was first on the list with an estimated fortune of $14.7 billion. Last month, the U.S. edition of "Forbes" ranked Abramovich as the 21st richest person in the world with a fortune of $13.3 billion. Last's year's No. 1 on the Russian list, former Yukos CEO Mikhail Khodorkovskii, saw his estimated fortune fall from $15.2 billion to $2 billion, while the Yukos-related fortunes of Leonid Nevzlin, Mikhail Brudno, Vladimir Dubov, Platon Lebedev, and Vasilii Shakhonskii are no longer sufficient to merit places in the top 100.

The "Forbes" list includes 18 government officials, including seven Federation Council members, six State Duma deputies, two local legislators, two presidents of Russian republics, and Abramovich. Yelena Baturina, wife of Moscow Mayor Yurii Luzhkov, remains the only woman on the list, with a fortune estimated at $1.4 billion.
