1/8 Russian Oligarch Files: Roman #Abramovich

A morally #corrupt high-profile Russian billionaires because of the success of football club Chelsea FC, Roman Abramovich was sanctioned later than some others, because he is less obviously influential than other #Putin allies.
2/8 His influence in the Kremlin is limited, he is more #Putin ‘s bitch than his friend, but is tolerated by Mr Putin (as long as he pays). Abramovich has made corrupted money out of the relationship, through #putin awarding him contracts for the #FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia.
3/8 #Abramovich denies having close ties to Mr Putin or the Kremlin, but the UK portion of his estimated $12.4bn fortune is now frozen. At the start of the war he was forced to put Chelsea up for sale for £3bn. and his £150m house in London's Kensington Palace Gardens in London.

Unlike the other incidents this has no military connection. It might be "just a fire". I will maybe delete this post.

I was 12 when #Abramovich bought #Chelsea. I remember my Dad waking me & saying we'd been bought by a billionaire! I went downstairs & read the Ceefax pages w/ him. I read the Sunday papers doublespreads of players we might buy, Veron, Crespo, Cole. I was so excited.

I sung Roman's name. I cheered when the big screen at the Bridge cut to him smiling & clapping. I was so pleased he was ours. He facilitated some of my best memories [incl. those w/ my Dad], at home to Barca in 2012, my 1st final in Cardiff against Liverpool & many cups & titles.
I wasn't political until I reached my early twenties, & even then I only delved just below the surface - I read Chomsky, I recognised we'd been f*cked over in 2008 & I railed against it, I began to understand the climate crisis & the consequences of hoarding massive wealth.

After Roman Abramovich sells Chelsea, will Saudi and Emirati ownership of other football clubs then come under scrutiny? Fuck Putin. Yes. And also fuck autocrats and autocracy everywhere. #UkraineRussiaWar
I was ready to end my support of Manchester United when Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman expressed interest in buying the club. There are hideous amounts of money in modern football and horrendous ownership tied to that money. #Abramovich #Chelsea #UkraineRussiaWar
The #UkraineRussiaWar has brought up so many double and triple standards over whose lives matter, which autocracies must be fought, often by the very democracies that prop up other autocracies. And some of us are at the intersections of all this hypocrisy.

La #invasión de #Ucrania nubla las perspectivas de crecimiento y, en el peor escenario, podría llevar a una recesión. Sus ramificaciones económicas podrían agrietar la #economía global. Aquí, los 7 grandes riesgos. ⬇️#Expansioncom
1⃣Dependencia energética
▶️El 47% del #gas que consume la #UE, y el 25% del #petróleo, vienen de #Rusia.
▶️La UE busca reducir esa dependencia.
▶️Europa se expone a un posible desabastecimiento energético y a una subida de los precios.
2⃣Nube tóxica de #inflación
▶️El alza de #precios #energéticos tendría efectos inflacionistas inmediatos.
▶️Sería un gran lastre para el crecimiento mundial.
▶️El encarecimiento también repercutiría en los precios de #alimentos y #metales.

Breaking: #Ukraine has brought an inter-state case in the European Court of Human Rights against #Russia over its covert assassination programme - #Litvinenko, #Skripal, @navalny. Some 20+ victims on the list including Anna Politkovskaya & Boris Nemtsov…
Other states where assassinations have taken place (UK, Germany, Bulgaria) can join Ukraine's action as third parties. Several are likely to do so, I'm told. The big question is whether the British foreign secretary Dominic Raab will support the @ECHR_CEDH case
Boris Johnson's government has yet to take action against the oligarchs and Kremlin functionaries who feature on the @navalny list. MPs have called in the House of Commons for sanctions against Roman #Abramovich and Alisher #Usmanov. Will Raab step up?…

1. Abramovich, was permitted by Putin to sell his oil company for $13 billion in 2005 to a Russian State firm. In 2008, he received a $1.8 billion, Russian tax payer funded, loan from Putin's, US sanctioned, VEB bank to bail out his co-owned global steel/mining company, EVRAZ.
2. Side Note 1 - In 2007, Abramovich and his Russian partners paid an estimated $3 billion to purchase three steel plants in the US, (Oregon, Colorado, and Delaware) and five steel plants in Canada (Alberta and Saskatchewan).
3. EVRAZ's US Claymont Steel plant closed on Dec. 2013, just three months before the US/EU imposed Ukrainian related sanctions against Russia. Claymont, Delaware is the boyhood home of VP Joe Biden, the Obama Administration's 2013-2016 public champion of Ukraine's revolution.
