Vladimir Potanin, Russia’s richest man, will take his legal battle with his ex-wife to the UK’s top judges in one of the world’s biggest divorce fights.

Potanin, who is sanctioned by Canada and Australia but not the UK or US, won permission to appeal the suit before the Supreme Court, a spokeswoman said Monday. The billionaire is bidding to overturn a previous ruling that cleared the way for Natalia Potanina to renew her $7 billion claim in London.
