The top 5 richest Ukrainians in 2021 are:

  1. Rinat Akhmetov, $11.54 billion

Rinat Akhmetov, 55, the ironworks and energy tycoon originally from the Donbas, remains the country’s wealthiest person in 2021. The billionaire’s assets in the metallurgical sector have shown excellent results this year on surging steel and iron ore prices. Strong demand for coal and electricity have added weight to Akhmetov’s domestic standing.

  1. Viktor Pinchuk, $2.6 billion

Pinchuk, 60, whose assets span from steel works to media, saw his net worth almost double over the past year from $1.4 billion to $ 2.6 billion. Interpipe, his main business asset which produces steel pipes and railway wheels, is worth $500 million.

Pinchuk also owns Star Light Media Holding, which controls nearly 20% of Ukraine’s television market.

  1. Vadym Novinsky, $2.4 billion

Originally a Russian millionaire, Novinsky, 58, acquired Ukrainian citizenship in 2012 from then-President Viktor Yanukovych.

Rising prices for ore and metal have increased the value of Akhmetov’s Metinvest steel holding, hence also the wealth of minority shareholder Novinsky.

In 2020, Novinsky, a pro-Russian lawmaker in parliament, was ordained as a deacon in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate.

  1. Kostyantyn Zhevago, $1.4 billion

Majority owner of London-listed Ferrexpo ore mining group, the 47-year old cannot set foot on Ukrainian soil. In 2019, the Prosecutor General’s Office declared him internationally wanted for embezzling $90 million through his bank Finance and Credit. Since then, the businessman has run affairs remotely.
