Russian Movers and Shakers Are Announced
Aleksey Navalny and Ksenia Sobchak

Within the special project dedicated to the 20th anniversary of modern Russia's history, the Financial Times has published the list of 25 most interesting Russians, so-called "movers and shakers".

      Political block is represented by the popular opposition blogger Aleksey Navalny who made his name through his active juridical work and publications in social networks. Navalny was arrested on December 5 during the demonstration against the parliamentary election fraud. He went out this week and now is preparing for new protest actions. Another remarkable political figure on the list is Vladislav Surkov, the acting head of the Presidential Administration, the former leader of youth pro-Kremlin organizations. 

      The list of prominent businessmen are crowned by Evgeny Kaspersky, Russia's leading specialist in the information security and creator of the most popular anti-virus program, and Arkady Volozh, the principal founder of Russian search engine Yandex. There are also Sergei Belousov (Parallels), Yuri Soloviev (VTB bank), Gennady Timchenko (Gunvor) and Yuri Kovalchuk ("Russia" bank, "National Media-group") in the business list.

      The list named "Journalism, Internet, Society" consists of Anton Nossik ("the father of Russian blogosphere"), Sergei Kanayev ("Novaya Gazeta"), Oleg Kashin ("Kommersant"), Tatyana Lokshina (the deputy head of Moscow Human Rights Watch department), Yekaterina Bermant ("Children's Hearts" fund), Yevgeniya Chirikova (public figure and oppositionist) and others.

      The Entertainment section is crowned by the Russian answer to Paris Hilton Ksenia Sobchak, a local celebrity and TV host, who recently revealed her interest in political journalism having a scandalous interview with the leader of Kremlin's youth movement Nashi. Another persons in the list are the girlfriend of oligarch Roman Abramovich Dasha Zhukova (heads the Garage Contemporary Art Center in Moscow) and Marat Gelman (gallery owner, civil society activist, and popular blogger)

      Russian cinema is represented by Aleksey Popogrebsky, whose How I ended this Summer won three Silver Bear awards at Berlinale last year. Another director is Valeria Guy Germanika, whose Everybody Dies But Me earned a special mention at Cannes in 2008 comes next.
