Dangerous Abramovich: the Russian businessmen are declared toxic even in Switzerland?


The Russian billionaire is recognized by threat of public safety of Switzerland and therefore hasn't received the residence permit, assure media. Allegedly, according to local authorities, Abramovich can cause damage to their reputation Roman Abramovich. Photo: Toby Melville/Reuters Roman Abramovich threatens national security of Switzerland — at least, so approve media. For this reason the Swiss authorities have refused to the Russian businessman the residence permit, Tages Anzeiger reports. According to the edition, in the report of police of the country it was told about "suspicions concerning money laundering and presumable contacts with the criminal organizations". Besides, allegedly, Zurich has considered origin at least of a part of assets of Abramovich illegal. Whether it is possible to note that the Russian businessmen begin to feel toxic even in those countries which officially didn't impose the sanction against Russia? As far as it is painful for the Russian business elite?

is Commented by the associate professor of integration processes of MGIMO Alexander Tevdoy-Burmuli: Alexander Tevdoy-Burmuli the associate professor of the European integration of MGIMO "Really, the fact that have refused to Abramovich in this case the residence permit, is not the first case of this sort, it can be considered already rather settled trend.

The alternative position was sounded by the expert of the International institute of humanitarian and political researches Vladimir Bruter.

The Russian business elite has to operate in Russia and in the countries which are included into the unions or into associations in which Russia is presented. And as for their free creativity in the countries which have imposed sanctions against Russia, naturally, it is limited in time. In general it strange always seems to me that, on the one hand, Abramovich has some relation to Russia, and on the other hand — is the owner of Chelsea Football Club in
