Baturina's Influence Plummets in List

Yelena Baturina, president of the Inteko construction firm and wife of former Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov, has been ousted as Russia's most powerful businesswomen, according to Finans magazine.

Baturina's perceived influence has dropped so much since her husband was fired last fall that she plummeted from first to 41st place.

Baturina was replaced by Olga Zinovyeva, first deputy general director of the Interros investment company, who came in at No. 3 on last year's list. Zinovyeva is followed by Rosneft deputy chairwoman Larisa Kalanda and Gazprom pricing and economic expertise chief Yelena Karpel.

Finans magazine compiles the annual list of the 50 most powerful businesswomen based on the size of their company, their position, and the position of the company in its industry.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
