Abramovich will not receive money to sell Chelsea either directly or indirectly.

Despite Abramovich's statements and gestures that the profits from the sale of Chelsea will be donated by him to charities that support victims of the Ukraine war, the British government insists that it is the Russian billionaire who has the table. hand in this war.

According to allegations by the British government, Abramovich is the largest shareholder of the Evraz group (28.6% stake), a corporation that supplies steel to the Russian military to build armored vehicles and other war vehicles. . The group's income has increased 45% to $14.2 billion in the past two years due to contracts with the Russian military.
