List of Russian Outlaw Businessmen published
Vladimir Gusinsky

A new ranking of Russian businessmen, who had to abscond afraid of being put in prison, has been made up by the Smart money magazine. Vladimir Gusinsky tops the list he has already been in hiding for 104 months.
      In 2000 Vladimir Gusinsky, the founder of Most Bank and owner of NTV federal channel, was arrested on large scale fraud charge, but soon he was released on his own recognizance. However, shortly the Russian entrepreneur found himself in Spain, where he was admitted to citizenship in 2007. He also has got Israeli passport.
      Boris Berezovsky, wanted for criminal cases of embezzlement and money laundering, has not been in Russia for 88 months and now lives in exile in London. In 2007 he was sentenced in absence to 6 years of imprisonment.
      Ranking 3rd on the list Yuli Dubov, Berezovskys associate and former director general of LogoVaz, is charged of fraud and is in hiding for 76 months. In October he was granted political asylum in the UK.
      Leonid Nevzlin, Menateps former shareholder, goes next on the list with 61 months spent in hiding. In 2008 the businessman was sentenced to life imprisonment, no wonder, he is not eager to go back to Russia from Israel. Another shareholder of Russian bank Menatep Mikhail Brudno, charged of fraud and large scale theft, also absconded to Israel.
      Two Russian businessmen closing the list now live in the UK: Mikhail Gutseriyev, ex-president of Russneft (19 months) and Evgueny Chichvarkin, former co-owner of Russias largest mobile phone retailer Euroset (1 month). Mikhail Gutseriyev is charged of tax avoidance and illegal enterprise, while Evgueny Chichvarkin is accused in plagium and blackmailing.
