Forbes List of Influential Russians

In honor of the centenary of Forbes magazine, the editors compiled a list of the 100 most influential Russians of the last 100 years. They first came up with 150 Russians who, in their view, had the biggest influence on business, politics, culture, science and society and then asked readers to vote. Some choices are expected, but a few might be a surprise.
