Roman Abramovich Arrest: Spokesman Denies Chelsea Owner Detained in United States by FBI By GARETH PLATT: Subscribe to Gareth's RSS feed March 25, 2013 1:51 PM GMT
Roman Abramovich's spokesperson has denied claims the mogul has been arrested in the FBI. A spokesperson for Roman Abramovich has denied claims the Chelsea owner has been arrested in the United States by the FBI.
Abramovich's press secretary John Mann confirmed that the tycoon is in the US, but said that reports of his arrest were "completely untrue".
The FBI has yet to provide comment on the story.
Russia Today, a news website close to President Vladimir Putin, earlier broke the story that Abramovich had been arrested, without giving any further details as to the nature of the detention.
Abramovich's former business partner Boris Beresovsky, with whom he fought a high-profile legal battle which finished last year, died on Saturday at his Hertfordshire mansion. However investigators have said there is as yet no evidence of foul play.
Abramovich is one of the world's most high-profile businessmen, and has been owner of Chelsea football club for the last 10 years.
ports from Russia* claim that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been detained by authorities in the United States, specifically the FBI. Obviously, this could be very, very bad. We really don't need our owner being thrown in prison right now, but the way our season has been going...
Gazprom's explanation made me laugh too. It reminded me of the sky clip of the Iraqi pr man saying, "there was no Americans in Baghdad" with a backdrop of an American Abraham's tank behind him. Meanwhile, they are exploring for oil off Alaska/Russia coast.
With the favoured oligarchs in position and under the patronage of Putin, the Russian economy will start to move in an organised direction. Don't forget Abramovich stepped into that Nickel dispute and resolved that problem. Putin wants Russia to be powerful again with a strong diversified economy and that takes money. Russia/China Sino deals have been signed, oil was at the top of the list. Zol will benefit from this, the first well is to be drilled by winter. So I imagine the paperwork process is advanced.
Morning all. Regarding the relisting of Zol, along with its (hopefully) new and higher price. People have speculated that this could take days / weeks or even months. Does this mean that whilst the share is "unlisted" that Zol can not perform any more transactions - ie acquire something else, as effectively the company has been stock exchange "paused" until this transaction has been resolved.
Google "Raduzhny" in maps, view sattelite, zoom it to 2m/2km scale, you may well lots of interesting stuff... Still trying to find Koltogorsky blocks, I mean I am in the location, SE from Raduzhny town/village.
Raduzhny is the closest town/village to the Koltogor Blocks. And certainly not that remote as was claimed.
There is a proper road from Raduzhny to Nizhnevartovsk, similar to our B type roads.
The most funny thing about why did they decided to sell the Koltogorsky License was: "Gazprom oil" refusal "Sibgeko" explained territorial remoteness Koltogorsky block from the other assets of oil companies"
Distance from Salym Fields to Yuzhnoe i Orekhovskoye fields is around 200miles. Yuzhnoe to Koltogorsky blocks is around 100miles, if that. (Rough distances from looking at the map)
C'mon, this is Siberia, not London, where you can jump on the bus and get ice cream and gurkins for your missis in the middle of the night, Chiukchia's are doing their monthly or three monthly canned food shopping ever there!
Ochen xorosho sdelano! Maladsy rebiata! Davai Za!
I can wait until its relisted, but then will strike on both cfd and sb accs...
I doubt it's going to be that long till the company is relisted.
Berezovsky is gone, so no villains in the way. Khodorkovsky and Lebedev are locked(if they are not found guilty with something else) until 2014.
(Yukos- Khodorkovsky and Lebedev baby and Sibneft- Abramovich and Berezovsky baby was planned a merger in 2003, but fell through after K and L where charged with tax evasion. The merger would have created second largest oil and gas company after Exxon).
There is another person L. Nevzlin, Russia is chasing(do they really?) him as well as he fled to Israel. He was transferred/gained(?) a 60% stake in Yukos after Khodorkovsky arrest. Yukos assets were auctioned off by Russian government and bought by Rosneft.
I would like to get hold of the book of his and Khodorkovsky "Chelovek s rubliom"/Man with Rouble. Should be an interesting read. He is busy with philantropic work in Israel.
He's called "The One who got away", although he was sentenced(in absence) for 24years for arranging 5murders. Lucky one?
