List of most wealthy Russians for the second consecutive year is headed by the co-owner of "Novatek" and "Sibur" Leonid Michelson.
Sale of assets and dividends earned them about $12.4 billion of revenues in 2016.
Co-owner of Novatek and Sibur Leonid Michelson first became the richest Russian according to Forbes magazine.
Michelson has one important ability: he knows how to pick the right partners in a timely manner. Perhaps the most valuable of them is Vladimir Putin's friend Gennady Timchenko.
According to Forbes, the co-owner of Sibur Kirill Shamalov is a dollar billionaire.
As "Izvestiya" found out, the wife of the head of the Federal Tariff Service is a senior economist in the gas concern.
