Ukraine war: Roman Abramovich sanctioned by UK
Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has been sanctioned by the UK government as part of its response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The government said Thursday's sanctions against "Seven of Russia's wealthiest and most influential oligarchs" were part of the UK's "Efforts to isolate Putin and those around him". In addition to President Putin, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and four Belarusian generals, 23 high-profile Russian oligarchs were now on the UK's sanctions list, the spokesperson said. "Too few oligarchs linked to Putin's rogue regime have so far faced sanctions from the UK government," Mr Lammy said. The government has been accused of moving slower than western allies the US and the EU in its sanctioning of individuals linked to President Putin.
