The Russias Power Families 2011. The Government report was prepared by the Monitoring Expert Group (MEG), created in 2011 by Marina Litvinovich, political scientist and journalist. The report compiles and organizes all publicly available information on business ties of Russian Government members and their closest family. The authors discovered new, never-before published information on the RF Government members profiled in the report. The authors essentially concluded that, in Russia, there are 50 or so families of the highest-ranking government officials and businessmen who are the true decision makers on Russian mineral resources (oil, gas, metals, gold). These are also the individuals who control the largest budget funds of the Russian state and make key political decisions.
