Roman Abramovich, a Russian billionaire and owner of the football club Chelsea, has said that he is in touch with Ukraine. Ukraine has reportedly sought his support for its attempts to reach a “peaceful resolution” with Russia.
Abramovich’s spokesperson has told the media that he “has been trying to help ever since” Ukrainian officials had got in touch with him, BBC reported.
Abramovich, 55, is among the richest Russians and is believed to share close ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He announced last week that the “stewardship and care” of Chelsea is being given to the trustees of the club’s charitable foundation.
