11. Dmitry Ananyev – $1.4 billion
Seen from far away, billionaire Dmitry Ananyev seems like a modern-day Rasputin.
Unlike his infamous predecessor, Ananyev was compelled to obey a higher authority. A 2013 law put many Russian magnates in an uncomfortable position – to choose between their political and their business interests. The owner of Technoserv stepped down from his position as Senator.
Together with brother Alexei, Dmitry founded Promsvyazbank, the 10th largest bank in Russia. The two are very close to the Russian Orthodox Church, as one can see from the icon they included in the photo on purpose. Their total wealth is estimated at $3 billion.
