Prokhorov Plans $17 Billion Charity Giveaway If He Beats Putin in Election

Mikhail Prokhorov, Russia’s third richest man, said he’ll give $17 billion of his $18 billion fortune to charity if he defeats Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and three other candidates to win the Russian presidency next month.

“I’ll sell everything, all my assets when I become president and donate almost all of the money to charity,” Prokhorov said during a talk show with fellow candidate Vladimir Zhirinovsky that was broadcast on state-run television late.
