According to the article “Regions’ Donors: Where do the Richest Officials Live,” the rating used the tax declarations of governors, members of the regional parliaments and governments.
Based on the data available, the Perm Krai has the most well-to-do officials – a total of 15, with their summary income reaching 1.8 billion rubles.

The Penza region reached the 12th position in the list thanks to nine well-to-do state workers and deputies who together earned 489 million rubles.
According to Forbes, the richest of them is the deputy of the regional Legislative Assembly Ildar Akchurin, whose family earned 117.6 million rubles of profits in 2014. 83,114,626 rubles of this sum was declared by the official himself, while his wife wrote 34,487,877 rubles in her declaration.
The Perm Krai in the top 10 list was followed by the Tyumen region, the Yamalo-Nenetsky autonomous region, the Samara region, Bashkortostan, the Bryansk, Chelyabinsk, Belgorod and Irkutsk regions, and Moscow.
