Kommersant — Dengi, an online magazine, rated Russian business leaders based on their media presence in Russia and internationally.

The ranking was compiled based on the number of mentions in Russia’s main media outlets between January 1 and December 31, 2016; additionally, researchers analyzed print material from 100 leading foreign newspapers and magazines.
At the end of 2016, Forbes magazine summed up the results by selecting business leaders in five different categories. Both Forbes and the readers selected Vladimir Potanin as an Entrepreneur with a track record of achievement in large-scale projects that benefit society.
