Roman's childhood cannot be called easy: when the boy was only one year old, he lost his mother. However, his trials did not end there. Father, trying to support his family, worked hard. One of the days at the construction site was fatal for him - as a result of an accident, he died, leaving his son a complete orphan.

Upon returning from service, he still succumbed to the entreaties of relatives to get a higher education. The novel chose the direction as close as possible to his current interests and abilities - the Faculty of Forest Engineering of the Regional Institute. Granite of science and this time turned out to be uninteresting for him, which is why he later abandoned his studies. The only useful thing that Roman learned from his studies was the discovery of his own organizational skills, which were useful to him in the future.


The beginning of the career of Roman Abramovich can be considered the beginning of the 80s. It was during this period that he first turned his attention to entrepreneurial activity.The money accumulated during the part-time job was enough for him to acquire the first enterprise, “Cosiness,” whose profile of work consisted in the manufacture of children's toys. Even then, he met his colleagues, with whom he still does business (in the future they will jointly manage the Sibneft enterprise).

However, the chosen field of work was not enough to realize the ambitions of Roman, and he decided to try his hand at trading. The oil industry was already the most promising area. The similarity of interests and the desire to express themselves in business have pushed a young purposeful person with a number of “important” people. Among the most famous names can be identified Boris Berezovsky and Boris Yeltsin.

Next came the "dashing 90s." The novel, already having at that time large capital, could become the founder of a number of large corporations. It is noteworthy that, despite the growing exponentially in income, he managed to avoid the attention of the press for a long time. Factor X in this matter turned out to be the declassification of his working ties with Boris Yeltsin. At this time, Roman was the head of AVK, still concentrating on working with oil.It was during that period of his life that an entrepreneur for the first time became a defendant in a major scandal (a case was initiated about the theft of a large batch of fuel).

In 1998, the name of Abramovich was finally mentioned in the media. He was credited with a close friendship with Boris Yeltsin and even the management of the president’s private affairs. In the late 90s, Roman collaborated a great deal with another “growing” billionaire - who later became the central figure of the scandal with Nastya Rybka and Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko.
