Vladimir Potanin


Moscow financier and former Yeltsin administration official, controls Interros, a holding company with stakes in metals, oil, and media.

THE THREAT
Moscow city prosecutor charges that the privatization of an Interros holding, Norilsk Nickel, was illegal and is seeking return of government's 38% stake.

THE PROGNOSIS
Interros is likely to prevail, but Norilsk investors are badly rattled.
