Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may be on the UK sanction list – Belgium

(Belga) Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich could end up on the British sanctions list. British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss refused to rule out the possibility of indicting the owner of Chelsea Football Club. Truss was questioned about Abramovich because Prime Minister Boris Johnson erroneously said yesterday that the Russians would indeed face sanctions.

“We have more people on the list that we can punish. Nobody is left out,” Truss told LBC radio. Then she refused to exclude Abramovich three times on the Sky News news channel. “Viewers can rest assured that we have more people to deal with if there is a large-scale invasion of Ukraine,” she said afterwards. And Britain imposed, yesterday, sanctions on five Russian banks and three wealthy people. The country described this as a “first shot” of punitive measures. All assets held by relevant agencies and persons in the UK will be frozen. The British government banned the three billionaires from entering the country. Johnson wants to prevent Russian companies from making money in British markets. Abramovich, 55, has a fortune of more than 13 billion euros, according to Bloomberg News. He built this, among other things, by investing in the oil company Sibneft. He bought Chelsea FC in 2003, making the London club one of the first in which the billionaire invested a lot of money to achieve success. Chelsea received the nickname Chelsky. (Belgium)
