Chelsea have won 17 major trophies under Roman Abramovich's ownership

Some social media users have expressed dissatisfaction with sanctions against Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich over the ongoing Russian-Ukraine invasion.

On Thursday morning, it was reported that Chelsea and other assets belonging to the Russian have been seized.

It has been alleged that Mr Abramovich, who has an estimated net worth of £9.4bn has strong ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Abramovich has denied these claims, however, he has been sanctioned by the UK government.

In response, some users claim that this is a calculated attack against Chelsea as a club and not just Abramovich.

Mr Abramovich had initially put up Chelsea for sale but there won’t be any transfer of the club ownership until further notice.

The list of Russians penalised also includes billionaires Igor Sechin and Oleg Deripaska, both seen as allies of Vladimir Putin.

Meanwhile, a section of the users believes the UK government is in the right and must be commended.
