In the 90-ies after the collapse of the USSR, he was a very successful businessman, but after 15 years has transformed from the wealthiest man in the country, «hermit», because he thought that his wealth is jealous of every single person, and he and his family can tragically be fatal for their success. At the moment Sterligov calls himself a poor man of the country, while he intends to enter the world of big politics, declaring the intention to stand in deputies of the state Duma for the 2016 elections. 31 August 2015 the businessman was detained at Domodedovo airport for his active extremist activities in Nagorno-Karabakh and public anti-state appeals, for which he was put on the international wanted list.

His father, Lev, was a renowned Professor of medicine and was considered the best diagnostician of the time, and mother Margaret A. – peasant daughter, guardian of the family hearth that has dedicated his life to the education of children.
Childhood of the future multi-millionaire were far from wealth and celebration. But this did not prevent him to get a good secondary education in the Metropolitan school № 19 with an English bias. However, a certificate from the school was the only document Sterligov about the education he received at MSU for EuroFaculty, but, having studied only one course, dropped out and was no longer spending your time learning.
After school, he also like all Soviet young men were drafted into the Soviet army and gave back to the Motherland. Your army Herman L. recalls with nostalgia and considers military service a good school of life, which is tempered in this masculinity, responsibility and male character.
Biography of Herman Sterligov after the army has been continuously connected with the business. The young man at the time of the collapse of the USSR do not miss your chance to become a successful entrepreneur and with the financial support of his older brother Dmitri was a co-founder of Russia’s first commodity exchange «Alisa». For several years, the company has become the largest holding, has 84 subsidiaries not only in Russia but also abroad.
In the first day of the exchange, Sterligov became a millionaire because the company has absolutely no competition. Through the year the activity on the exchange fell, that has not prevented the businessman to open a Club of young millionaires, whose activities he directed the development and improvement of the Ryazan region. However, all the planned projects have not been implemented, therefore the organization had to fold.

In the political world ambitious and extravagant businessman who is used to all at once, burst like a boomerang. He decided to skip all of the lowest rung of the classic political career and immediately wanted to become Governor of the Krasnoyarsk territory, and a year later ran for mayor of Moscow. In the national elections he failed and scored only a 3.87% of the vote, taking third place in the standings among the candidates.
Defeat on elections of the Moscow mayor did not break the fighting spirit — he decided to go further and to try their hand in the presidential race in upcoming elections in 2004. Then he couldn’t get into the papers, so as not logged on. This period was a turning point in the fate of the businessman. On the campaign he spent all his fortune and was forced with his family to leave Paris and settle in the suburban Mozhaisk. First he built for his family a luxurious mansion that later burned down by the neighbors. Family Sterligov regarded it as a «sign of God», so the future life they organized on the distant farm, where there are no electricity and basic access roads.

In 2009, the businessman presented a private unit of «Gold» that is high fineness gold coin weighs 1 ounce. Their gold German Lvovich proposed to use as the sole means of payment in the world by creating a Gold Exchange. But the FFMS refused Sterligov in the delivery of the exchange license, so this idea remained unrealized.
In 2015, the extravagant businessman Sterligov, who made a fortune in the financial pyramids, were detained in the capital’s Domodedovo airport at the time of return home from Yerevan. For extremist activities in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Basmanny court of Moscow has passed the decision on arrest of property of the businessman, who is suspected of fraud and misappropriation of funds in their business partners.
