MOSCOW, March 13 – RIA Novosti. The fortune of Russian billionaire Alexei Mordashov reached $ 30 billion for the first time. This is evidenced by data from Forbes Real-Time.
This happened against the backdrop of the growth of Severstal shares, which on Friday renewed their all-time high. Their value at the peak reached 1,414.4 rubles, which is 4.2% higher than the price at the close of previous trading.
It is noted that the rise in prices was the result of Severstal's statements about the expectation of an increase in demand for steel in Russia by 3.1% this year, as well as the refusal to build a plant for the production of welded oil country tubular goods (OCTG) in the Surgut region.
Alexey Mordashev became the second Russian businessman in history whose fortune has grown to such a level. Before this mark was achieved only by Vladimir Potanin.
