on social media

While it may look strange and self-serving for the Kyiv Post to declare its publisher the richest foreigner in Ukraine, Mohammad Zahoor certainly appears to have earned the title. If anyone knows of another expatriate worth between $500 million and $1 billion, the estimated size of Zahoor’s fortune, please let us know and we will set the record straight.

Zahoor certainly didn’t get where he is today – namely, wealthy – by owning the Kyiv Post. Zahoor punched his ticket the hard way: making steel in rough-and-tumble Donetsk. He came to Ukraine in 1974 as a student from Pakistan, the start of his pioneering expatriate career.

He learned Russian and metallurgy well. Then he eventually found a way to apply those skills in Ukraine, one of the world’s top 10 steel-exporting nations.
