Russia has a third more billionaires, but people take no pride in this
MOSCOW, March 10 (Itar-Tass) -- Over the past year the number of billionaires in Russia has increased by 30%, and Moscow has become number one city in the world as to the number of billionaires resident in it, overtaking New York by this parameter. This, experts say, merely underlines the glaring social inequality in the country, which cannot be seen in any other post-socialist states in Europe.
In the ranking of the richest people of the world, published by the American magazine Forbes, there are 101 billionaires from Russia. Last year the number of billionaire Russians increased by 30%.
In other words, every twelfth dollar billionaire on the planet has a Russian passport. There are more of them only in the U.S. (413) and China (115).
Moscow has regained the title of the world capital of billionaires, lost in the wake of the fall of commodity markets in 2008. The Russian capital city is a home for 79 billionaires, while the American metropolis - for just 58. The combined wealth of the richest residents of Moscow is equal, according to experts, the 375 billion dollars. In just one year their number grew to 21, Forbes representatives said on Wednesday.
