Baku – APA-Economics. Russia gained 28 new billionaires in the last year as the global financial crisis eased and the country’s economy started recovering from its steepest decline on record, Bloomberg reported based on Finans magazine.
The number of Russians worth at least $1 billion increased to 77 from 49 a year ago, the Moscow-based magazine said in a statement on its Web site today.
The combined wealth of the 10 richest Russians jumped 84 percent to $139.3 billion, Finans said. That compares with the $221 billion the 10 richest were worth two years ago, when the billionaire list swelled to a record 101.
It took a fortune of $9.95 billion to join the top 10 this year. Only two men, Mikhail Prokhorov and Roman Abramovich, were worth more last year, with $14.1 billion and $13.9 billion, respectively.
Finans mentioned only one person by name in today’s statement, Abramovich, saying he remains among the three richest men in the country. The magazine will publish its annual ranking of the 500 richest Russians on Feb. 15.
