As Ukraine is getting poorer (economy: -15%, hryvnia: -60%), the oligarchs are getting richer.
In 2010, The World’s Billionaires features five slots from Ukraine:
148. Rinat Akhmetov: $5.2
307. Viktor Pinchuk: $3.1B
488. Ihor Kolomoysky: $2.0B
582. Hennadiy Boholyubov: $1.7B
828. Kostyantyn Zhevago: $1.2B
MP Akhmetov regains his leading position, lost to Pinchuk last year. MP Zhevago (a businessman, not an oligarch, as Tymoshenko would argue) reenters the ranking.
