The second place in the billionaire ranking is occupied by the son and daughter of the main owner of “Novatek” and “Sibur Holding” Leonid Michelson. Their fortune is $ 12.5 billion per person. The third position is for the son of the main shareholder of UMMC Iskander Mahmudov. His fortune is currently estimated at $ 9.7 billion.

Alexei Mordashov, who is a co-owner and head of the board of directors of the metallurgical company Severstal, has 7 children – 4 boys and 3 girls. In just one year, they all doubled. In 2020, each of them had $ 4.5 billion, while today the figure is approaching $ 10 billion. The main reason for this is that the fortune of the Russian entrepreneur increased significantly during the year – from $ 18.2 to 31.4 billion dollars.

The daughter and son of Telegram founder Pavel Durov each have $ 8.6 billion. The ranking also includes the son of the largest shareholder of Rossiya Bank and the Sogaz insurance company, Yuri Kovalchuk. He has $ 3.3 billion in his bank account.

According to Forbes estimates, as of April 15, 2021, there were 123 billionaires in Russia with a total fortune of $ 610 billion. If this amount is divided by the total number of their children, which is 357, surely all of them will also be billionaires, with an average of $ 1.7 billion.
