Abramovich Tops List of Most Charitable Russians

Russian tycoon and Chelsea Football Club owner, Roman Abramovich, is named Russia’s most generous philanthropist, Bloomberg reports. According to the news agency, the 46-year-old Russian billionaire have spent $310 million on charity out of his fortune of $12.8 billion in the past three years.

      That means that Abramovich has spent more money on charity than any other of Russia’s 15 wealthiest people in the past three years. About $100 million were transferred for Russia’s easternmost region of Chukotka's social needs, when Abramovich was the region's governor. Overall, starting from 1999, he has invested over $2.5 billion in Chukotka's schools, hospitals and infrastructure, or about $179 million annually.

      Alisher Usmanov, owner of Metalloinvest metals giant and Russia’s wealthiest businessman, whose fortune is ranked by Forbes at $17.6 billion, has donated $247 million, while Viktor Vekselberg, owner of Renova Group, comes third with donations of $160 million, according to Bloomberg.
