Using the classification of the finite simple groups, the author proves that, for every Abelian subgroup \(A\) of a finite simple non-Abelian group \(G\) other than \(L_2(q)\), the inequality \(|A|^3<|G|\) holds. As a corollary, the following result is obtained: For a finite non-Abelian simple group \(G\), there exist Abelian subgroups \(A,B\) with \(G=ABA\) if and only if \(G\) is isomorphic to \(L_2(2^t)\), \(t\geq 2\). The latter result was announced earlier by D. L. Zagorin and L. S. Kazarin [Dokl. Math. 53, No. 2, 237-239 (1996); translation from Dokl. Akad. Nauk 347, No. 5, 590-592 (1996; Zbl 0895.20020)].
