Chelsea owner, Abramovich, can't get United Kingdom visa renewed

CHELSEA owner Roman Abramovich was notably absent when his club won the FA cup on Saturday.

The UK Government is examining investor visas issued to Russians in the wake of the Salisbury nerve agent attack and the deterioration in relations with Moscow.

Abramovich, who missed yesterday's FA Cup Final which saw Chelsea win 1-0 over Manchester United, has apparently gone back to Russian Federation and can not enter Britain.

It's claimed that Abramovich's U.K visa is yet to be renewed, having expired three weeks ago.

Billionaire Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich was left in limbo this week after his United Kingdom visa expired, as British authorities have not yet granted him a new one.

Millhouse, the company that manages Abramovich's assets, declined to comment. Britain's Home Office could not be reached for comment. Now, an associate confirms that his British visa hasn't been renewed.

"Work is under way in terms of reviewing Tier 1 investor visas", the PM's official spokesman said.

The Russian oligarch, who apparently has a net worth of £9.3bn, bought Chelsea in 2003 and has bankrolled the club during a period of unprecedented success. The Kremlin-connected, London-based Mr Abramovich - who, with a net worth of £9.3bn, is Britain's 13th-richest man according to the Sunday Times - has returned to Russian Federation after his investor visa ran out, according to two people close to him. "As a result of these reforms, applications reduced by 84 per cent".

His name appeared on the Trump administration's so-called "Putin list" of 96 "oligarchs" and 114 Russian politicians who had close links to the Russian president.
