Pinchuk Among Clinton Contributors

Ukrainian billionaire Viktor Pinchuk and the chairman of Vostok Nafta Investment are among the people who contributed millions of dollars to former U.S. President Bill Clinton's foundation.

Pinchuk, son-in-law of former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, is listed with donors who gave $1 million to $5 million to the William J. Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit created by the former president to finance his library in Little Rock, Arkansas, and charitable efforts to reduce poverty and treat AIDS. His wife's Elena Franchuk Anti-AIDS Foundation is listed as contributing $500,000 to $1 million.

The foundation disclosed the names of its 205,000 donors Thursday on the web site www.clintonfoundation.org/

contributors, ending a decade of resistance to identifying the sources of its money.

Lukas Lundin, chairman of oil, gas and mining businesses including Vostok Nafta, an investment company that focuses on Russia and other former Soviet republics is in the $1 million to $5 million category.

In the $10 million to $25 million category is Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining financier who signed uranium contracts in Kazakhstan after traveling to the country with Clinton in 2005.
