As part of the sanctions against Russia, a British MP (Chris Bryant) has advocated for the seizure of Chelsea from Roman Abramovich.
At the moment, it is evident that anyone associated with Vladimir Putin will face sanctions from international organisations in response to UN threats.
Cbgists has found that the owner of Chelsea is a Russian oligarch, a former governor, and a close associate of Putin.
Additionally, it has been rumored that he is one of the financiers of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and hence deserves the sanctioning.
Meanwhile, Roman Abramovich has been denied entry to the United Kingdom.
The following are the words of Congressman Chris Bryant.
“‘As part of HMG’s [Her Majesty’s Government’s] Russia strategy, which focuses on combating illicit money and harmful activity, Abramovich continues to be of interest to HMG due to his ties to the Russian state and public affiliation with corrupt activities and practices.’
“‘HMG is committed to preventing his links to illegal funding and malicious action from establishing a basis in the UK and will use all available instruments, including immigration authorities, to do so.’
“That was over three years ago, and yet astonishingly nothing has been done in that regard. Mr Abramovich should surely be barred from owning a football team in this country? Perhaps we might consider confiscating some of his assets, including his £152 million mansion? And ensuring that other individuals who have obtained Tier 1 visas in this manner are not involved in malign activity?”
