Russian oligarch Mikhail Fridman detained in London

Russian billionaire detained in the UK on suspicion of money laundering.

The detention of the Russian oligarch took place in London, when Friedman received a certain amount of cash. Due to the fact that in connection with the sanctions against Russia and Russian persons, Friedman's accounts were frozen, the oligarch is charged with money laundering.

The Russian side almost immediately received information about the detention of Fridman and demanded to immediately inform the grounds for his detention, which, by the way, was done later.

At the moment, Fridman has been released on bail, however, if Mikhail Fridman’s guilt in money laundering is confirmed, then the accounts of the Russian oligarch may well be seized (and we are talking about a very impressive amount of money, which, due to banking secrecy, not disclosed).

Considering that Fridman was detained right when receiving cash, experts are of the opinion that the Russian oligarch could be under surveillance. At the same time, it is possible that we are talking about a targeted provocation.

As of the end of 2021, the property of Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman was estimated at $11,8 billion.
