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.
