“The fortunes of the majority of Ukrainian billionaires have grown significantly. And it’s not just the performance of their business. Last spring, investors were not yet ready for a pandemic, the world’s leading stock indexes dropped significantly, and oil sometimes cost less than zero. In March 2021, oil hits the annual, and the indices – historical highs. Many Ukrainian billionaires were helped by the rise in steel prices – in a year it added about $ 300 in price and reached the level of $ 700 / t, ”writes the Ukrainian Forbes.
According to him, the first two places of the richest people in Ukraine were retained by Rinat Akhmetov and Viktor Pinchuk. Their fortunes grew by $ 4.8 billion ($ 7.6 billion) and $ 1.1 billion ($ 2.5 billion). Akhmetov is ranked 330th in the Forbes ranking of the richest people in the world.
They are followed by Konstantin Zhevago ($ 2.1 billion), Igor Kolomoisky ($ 1.8 billion) and Gennady Bogolyubov ($ 1.7 billion). But the ex-president of Ukraine and the owner of the Roshen candy empire Petro Poroshenko dropped to the sixth line of the rating, although his fortune increased by $ 200 million over the year – to $ 1.6 billion
