UK bans Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich due to Russo-Ukraine stand-off.
Billonaire Roman Abramovich, who is also the owner of football club Chelsea, has been barred from living in Britain. Reports from Thursday says so.
This follows the full scale invasion by Russia into Ukraine on Thursday.

However, checks have established that he has links with the Russian government. Howbeit, he has denied such allegations.
The Daily Mail reports that he has links with the Russian government. The UK too, as a matter of urgency, is applying stringent sanctions to people who are found to be connected to the Russian government.
Abramovich is belived to have a net worth of over £8.4 billion. He has also accumulated a British property empire of £200 million.
The UK foreign secretary, Liz Truss told the Daily Mail that Abramovich is not being targeted. He vouched any person who is caught in bed with the Russian government will be sanctioned accordingly.
“We have a long list of those complicit in the actions of the Russian leadership,” said Truss.
He continued, ” should Russia refuse to pull back its troops, we can keep turning up the heat, targeting more banks, elites and companies of significance.
“This is about inflicting pain on Putin and degrading the Russian economic system over time, targeting people that are close to Putin. What we have to do is make it as painful as possible, ” he ended.
Abramovich, who is described to be in a ‘father and son’ relationship with Putin has been a major financier of the Chelsea football club. During his tenure at the club, the club has clinched 18 major trophies.
