Lebedev also said Russia could face a wave of political
repression following a series of moves since Vladimir Putin
returned to the presidency on May 7 that opposition leaders have
described as a crackdown on dissent.

“I think the biggest problem is the country is being run on
the model of personal power,” Lebedev, whose net worth was put
at $1.1 billion by Forbes magazine in March, told Reuters in an
interview at his Moscow office.

“I hope I’m mistaken when I said we’re on the brink of
political repression.”
