Governor of Chukotka may become citizen of England
Roman Abramovich has taken another step to take root in England. Maybe he decided to become English national, The Times reports.
First Abramovich`s daughter was born in Great Britain, then he bought Chelsea and then he was announced to be the second richest man in Great Britain. Now he maybe becomes English citizen, the newspaper informs.
Russian oligarch-multi-millionaire, who recently got $13,7 billions after selling his oil company "Sibneft", re-registered his British property which had been registered by unknown Caribbean off-shore company for his name during last months.
According to last registration data both Abramovich`s houses in London ($16,7 m and $8,5 m) and an estate in Sussex ($10 m in 2000) now are registered by him.
it is rumored that 38-year-old Roman who invested Chelsea more than $300 m now is thinking about being English citizen and demonstrate his fidelity to the country living there, The Times reports.
Abramovich`s fortune is estimated to be about $18,7 billions. But taking into consideration Abramovich was sworn in as Chukotka governor by the president Putin for 5 years, nationality changing is hardly going to be soon, the newspaper surmises.
But Great Britain still can clean up. Roman Abramovich is showing interest in Queen`s Club, an exclusive tennis club in the west of London which was displayed for sale on September.
