Although he is one of the richest people in the world with an estimated fortune of 13 billion francs and owns the most luxurious homes, yachts and planes, Roman Abramovich (55) needs money.
Because his US, UK and EU bank accounts have been frozen since early March. Because of the sanctions, the Russian oligarch cannot sell the Chelsea football club at the moment. This will raise him up to three billion francs. However, now that the British government has eased sanctions against the club, the sale may be completed soon.
His employees cost him $750,000 a week
But even then, the oligarchy is not liquid. It is said that Abramovich is desperately looking for sponsors. Because he can no longer pay the salaries of his employees. He is said to have asked for money from his wealthy friends around the world.
“Roman asks some of his closest, powerful friends to lend him $1 million. A source told Page Six he says he has never missed his employees’ paychecks. This amounts to $750,000 – per week. He is said to have contacted Hollywood producer and director Brett Ratner (53), among others .
But many of his friends rejected him. Although Abramovich has many friends in Hollywood, Wall Street and Silicon Valley, no one has yet “donated” to the oligarch’s government. “It’s either because they don’t have that much money or because it’s not clear what the repercussions are under international law,” the source said.
Participate in peace talks to reduce sanctions
Russian sources reported that Abramovich will participate in peace talks between Russia and Ukraine to end Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. He bears a lot for it. He was said to have recently survived a poison attack during negotiations.

There are currently many rumors about his role in the negotiations. The “financial times“It is speculated that the oligarchy is only involved in relieving Western sanctions against him. This plan can now work. Because Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has heard Abramovich (44). It seems that he wants the oligarch, who also has contacts with Vladimir Putin (69 years old), to act as a peace broker.
Therefore, Silinsky asked US President Joe Biden (79) to relieve Abramovich from the sanctions. In this way, he will get rid of his financial problems. (Mr)
