‘Ministers should have acted faster against Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’

The charge against Roman Abramovich couldn’t be more damning.

According to the State Department, his companies are believed to have provided money and materials to support the Russian attack.

The British government eventually imposed sanctions on the billionaire and six other tycoons. While the move is welcome, ministers should have acted much more quickly against the Chelsea owner.

So far, Britain has punished less than 20 oligarchs since the war began. In contrast, the EU has targeted more than 500 individuals.

Abramovich used his huge fortune to buy himself a respect he didn’t deserve.

Ministers, football governing bodies and fans cannot question where his money goes.

The invasion of Ukraine should not have revealed his relationship with the authoritarian Putin.

Sanctions against Russia are not without cost.

Automakers have seen a record-high price of a liter of gasoline after Western nations imposed embargoes on oil exports.

This squeeze on households will force many families to choose between heat and food.

Not everyone feels oppressed. Shell boss Ben van Beurden enjoyed a £1.1m boost last year, bringing his total pay package to £6.3m.

However, the Government continues to resist such a move.

By doing so, they are putting great business in front of millions of struggling families.
