Leonid Yurushev in 2009 sold a controlling stake in his Forum Bank to German Commerzbank for $600 million, and another 26 percent stake in March 2010.
He is widely reported to have invested some of the money in construction projects undertaken by Yaroslavov Val, which built the Intercontintental Hotel in downtown Kyiv.
Yurushev also owns Scandinavia, a company that supplies Ukraine with fish.
A native of Donetsk, Yurushev reportedly was close to the former owner of the Donetsk Shaktar football club Akhatiya Bragin and left Ukraine in 1995 for five years after he was murdered.
Yurushev has amassed a fortune since returning to Ukraine, with business journals consistently listing him among the richest Ukrainians since 2006.
In addition to owning stakes in the Kryukivsky Wagon Car Construction plant and the Kremenchuk Steel Plant, Yurushev owns or controls another 15 companies, including Unibudinvest.
