On Thursday, the British government announced the first sanctions against Russian oligarchs, including Roman Abramovich.

The UK government on Thursday issued a statement saying the assets of seven Russian oligarchs had been frozen. Among them, Roman Abramovich, who owns Chelsea despite plans to sell the club. Igor Chechin, Oleg Deribaska, Andrei Gostin, Alexei Miller, Nikolai Dokarev and Dmitry Lepadev are involved, but Abramovich is the most famous due to Chelsea ownership. “There can be no refuge for those who supported Putin’s brutal attack on Ukraine,” said British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. “Today’s sanctions are the latest step in Britain’s unwavering support for the Ukrainian people. We will ruthlessly pursue those who allow the killing of civilians, the destruction of hospitals and the illegal occupation of sovereign allies.

Abramovich froze his assets before selling Chelsea

In anticipation of such permission, Abramovich sought to sell the club. He announced last week that he was asking for concessions, But while official offers are expected from this week, there is not enough time for the team to be sold out. Therefore, Chelsea could be affected by this decision to freeze Abramovich’s assets.
