US feds seize a Russian oligarch’s NY mansion, find Roman Abramovich’s ex wife & kids inside

Chelsea & Roman Abramovich

Over the past few months there have been a series of updates concerning Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Roman Abramovich no longer turns up at Chelsea matches.

Indeed, it’s been reported that Abramovich is willing to sell Chelsea at the right price.

Moreover, in recent months the issue of where Abramovich lives has become a big issue for the Russian.

The UK Home Office refused to renew Abramovich’s visa to live in England. As a result, Abramovich recently became a citizen of the State of Israel.

A few weeks ago it was also reported that Abramovich has been denied residency to live in Switzerland as the Chelsea owner was labelled a ‘danger to public security’.

Roman Abramovich’s ex wife & kids ‘found’ in New York

Against that background, the New York Post have a fresh Abramovich update on Monday.

The story begins with the announcement that the US Federal Government tried to seize the Upper East Side mansion of Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska in recent days.

Deripaska is “allegedly involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering”, report the NY Post.

Yet, when the Feds turned up at the address they got a shock. The Post revealed:

Although the US government has frozen Deripaska’s US assets, including his property, Deripaska has arranged to have the children and ex-wife of his business partner, the oligarch Roman Abramovich, live within its secure walls.

The NY Post also revealed that Abramovich has recently transferred a significant amount of assets out of his portfolio:

Abramovich recently transferred $92 million worth of property to his ex-wife, Dasha Zhukova.

Finally, the Post claims that Abramovich now has a new partner:

Zhukova is dating Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, while Abramovich is reportedly dating Deripaska’s estranged wife, Polina Deripaska.
