An upswing in steel and investments in renewables have helped to boost Rinat Akhmetov’s net worth by 50%, after hitting rock bottom — $4 billion in 2015, Bloomberg writes. In a story headlined ‘Richest Man in Ukraine Climbs Back After Wealth Destroyed by War’ Bloomberg calculates that Akhmetov, owner of Metinvest and DTEK, is now worth $5.9 billion. In January 2013, before the war cut him off from properties in Donetsk and Luhansk, Akhmetov was worth $22.4 billion.
