BRITAIN’S RUSSIAN RICH LIST
RUSSIAN tycoons took two of the top three spots in this year’s Rich List. Despite the economic turmoil that has swept Europe over the past year, they stil have vast fortunes.
Metals magnate Alisher Usmanov, was second with £12.3bn. Close behind in third place was Roman Abramovich with £9.5bn.
Others include Alexander Mamut, who last year bought the struggling book chain Waterstones. New to the list this year is Elena Baturina, worth £700m. Russia’s wealthiest woman and the UK’s 14th, she is the wife of former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, and she moved to London following the ousting of her husband in 2010.
