The combined wealth of Russia's richest families is $386 billion, that is, each future rich person has about $1,4 billion.
Forbes experts compiled rating of the richest heirs of Russia, which included children with a capital of $ 2,3 billion or more. In total, the top includes 47 richest young Russians. The composition of the list has not changed much compared to 2016.

• Eight young billionaires followed in their father's footsteps and work in family structures. The rest of the children of the owners of factories, newspapers and steamships are either still studying or working in companies that do not belong to their parents.
When compiling the ranking of the richest heirs in the Russian Federation, Forbes experts acted according to a simple method: they took the fortune of each of the 96 billionaires and divided into all recognized children of a businessman. This did not take into account the shares of the spouses and the statements of some oligarchs (for example, Mikhail Fridman and Vladimir Potanin) that their children would not receive a large inheritance, since it would go to charity.
