    Russian presidential candidate Mikhail Prokhorov has said that he has no plans to serve in Vladimir Putin's cabinet.

    The billionaire owner of the New Jersey Nets basketball team won just over seven percent of the votes cast on Sunday.

    Russia's third richest man has an estimated net worth of 13.6 billion euros, according to a 2011 study by Forbes magazine.
