Kremlin says unfazed by Chelsea owner's Israeli citizenship

The post Chelsea Owner, Abramovich "Has Right" To Israeli Citizenship - Russia appeared first on Channels Television.

Antonio Conte also publicly expressed doubts about his future as manager after the cup final and Chelsea has been linked with a series of replacements even though Abramovich has not fired the Italian, who has a year left on his contract.

Abramovich arrived in Israel on Monday afternoon, and immediately received Israeli citizenship.

Roman Abramovich, the owner of England's Chelsea soccer club sits, watches the Euro 2008 group E qualifying soccer match Israel vs Russian Federation at the Ramat Gan stadium outside Tel Aviv, Israel, Saturday, Nov. 17, 2007.

Israeli passport holders can enter Britain without a visa for short stays - although they require visas to work.

The situation regarding Abramovich comes amid growing tensions between Britain and Russia in the wake of the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Viktorovich Skripal and his daughter.

Certainly for Texas-based Kinder Morgan, the pipeline's current owner, Tuesday's announcement is good news. He said that shareholders would receive a "fair price" for the assets.

His spokesman would not comment on reports citizenship had been granted.

Roman Abramovich, who now holds an Israeli passport, will be allowed to visit the United Kingdom for up to half a year, but will have to apply for a work permit to be able to do business there, a spokesperson for the British government said.

It has been reported that Abramovich would have to explain the source of his wealth to receive a new British visa.

He has a net worth of $11.4 billion, according to Forbes magazine, and is now the wealthiest Israeli, as well as the 126th wealthiest individual in the world, and the 11th richest person in Russian Federation, A7 News reported. The Jewish tycoon will live in Tel Aviv's chic Neve Tzedek neighborhood.

As a new citizen, Abramovich is exempt from taxes in Israel on income earned overseas for 10 years, and need not declare the sources of that income for the same period.

Abramovich served as governor of Russia's remote Chukotka from 2000 to 2008 and pumped in millions of dollars to develop the remote region.
