The richest Russians grow rich quicker than just rich: such conclusions can be drawn from new rating. This year the rating was headed by the chairman of the board of Novatek Leonid Mikhelson of the Photo: depositphotos.com Forbes called 200 richest businessmen of Russia. As a part of a top of the list of updates a little. The leader was replaced: now the first position is taken by the chairman of the board of Novatek Leonid Mikhelson, his fortune was estimated in 24 billion dollars. From top-10 there was a chairman of the Renova group Victor Vekselberg, his place was taken by Roman Abramovich. This year the principle "the rich grow rich, the poor grows poor", known in sociology as "Mathew's effect" (or Matfey), in some sense is applicable also to the Russian Forbes list. However, "poor" needs to be replaced on "very much, but not the richest". In the sum the top of the Russian economic pyramid possesses assets on one half-trillion dollars. In comparison with last year conditions of 200 superrich Russians grew by 2.6%. At the same time the richest of the richest, the top ten of the Russian Forbes, possess assets of 178 billion dollars, last year now — a little more than on 160 billion. It is growth on more than for 10% in comparison with the last year's list — quadruple advancing in comparison with the general structure of the Russian Forbes. Moreover, if to consider only 190 conditionally "lagging behind" billionaires and multimillionaires, they began to grow poor: their total state was reduced by 1.5%. It is curious that the real income of Russians, by January estimates of Rosstat, was reduced by 1.3% for the last year so in some sense not the richest billionaires and multimillionaires suffered more, than ordinary citizens. From large falling — Oleg Deripaska who because of sanctions lost nearly a half of the state. Now it not the 19th place with nearly 7 billion dollars, and the 30th from 3.5 billion Besides, the arrested on a charge of fraud and establishing a criminal organization the co-owner of Summa Group Ziyavudin Magomedov — from one billion to half a billion, from the eighth ten of the list in the 18th considerably grew poor. Assessment of a condition of other arrested person involved in Forbes rating, the ex-minister of affairs of the Open government Mikhail Abyzov, did not change yet — 600 million, the middle of the second hundred list. Also the age structure of rating is interesting. If to consider all Forbes list, then now the average Russian billionaire or the multimillionaire is 55.5 years old. For the last year they grew old almost exactly for a year that demonstrates low removability of economic elite of Russia: new people in rating almost do not appear. As for businessmen from top-10, their middle age did not change at all. The matter is that each ultrabillionaire of the top ten grew old for a year, but 61-year-old Victor Vekselberg was replaced by Roman Abramovich who is younger than it for ten years. The co-owner of "The Russian platinum" 23-year-old Denis Bazhaev who inherited a fortune from the father in 2016, the most age — the 80-year-old CEO of the technological company IPG Photo remains the youngest participant of the list
