Russian billionaire and industrialist.
Founder of Basic Element, one of Russia's largest industrial groups, and Volnoe Delo, Russia's largest charitable foundation.
Like many other Russian entrepreneurs, Deripaska enriched himself by purchasing state-owned assets during the privatization that occurred due to the collapse of the Soviet Union. He was once Russia's richest man, but lost much of his wealth in the 2007 financial crisis.
