    There are more billionaires in Russia than anywhere else in Europe, according to Forbes. The business magazine has just published its annual list of the world's billionnaires. The list has almost a thousand names, sixty-two of which are Russians. The top man here is Vladimir Lisin - the steel producer is worth almost 16 billion dollars. He leapfrogged last year's winner - businessman Mikhail Prokhorov and Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich. Outside Russia it's Mexican telecom giant Carlos Slim who comes top in the world with a 53 point 5 billion dollar fortune.
