The combined fortune of the 25 richest Russian businessmen has increased by $18.3 billion since the beginning of 2024. The calculations were made by the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index rating.

The total fortune of rating members reached $344.37 billion. According to the rating, since the beginning of the year, the co-founder of “Eurochyma” Andrey Melnychenko, the main shareholder of “Severstal” Alexei Mordashov and the co-owner of the Novolypetsk Metallurgical Combine Vladimir Lysyn have become rich. Their fortunes increased by 5.29, 3.75 and 2.91 billion dollars.

At the same time, Vladimir Potanin remains the richest Russian businessman, with an estimated fortune of 31.8 billion dollars. Lysyn is in second place with 26.9 billion. On the third — Leonid Mikhelson. Bloomberg estimates his assets at 26.7 billion, since the beginning of the year they have fallen in price by 747 million. The agency found the biggest losses in Alisher Usmanov — minus 2.8 billion.

In 2022, the total wealth of the richest Russians included in the Bloomberg rating decreased by 93.753 billion. The reason was the international sanctions imposed against them and the Russian economy. In 2023, the assets of Russian businessmen in the rating increased by 50 billion.
