Abrahamovic is the majority shareholder in the steel manufacturer used by Russia to makes the tanks that are in the Ukraine. I'm sure he is profiting a lot more than he is losing out of this but he does have good pr.
Your narrative is crumbling. Roman is all class and an all round nice guy. Stop drinking the Haterade.

He still hasn’t condemned the attack on Ukraine so his ‘donation’ proposal is as bojan said PR.
His statement does say to benefit "all" victims of the war in Ukraine. Clever wording as I'm guessing he'd want most of the money going to Russians impacted.

He didn't say which victims.

He might consider any Russian soldier or pro-Russian citizen and their families the victims.

Why would anyone take the word of a shady corrupt piece of sh*t as being truthful?
So all the people demanding that Roman condemn the attacks on Ukraine were just going to say it was insincere or PR anyway? Lol this is amazing

Given he made his billions by being one of Putin's lap dogs of course anything he says or does is meaningless lip service.

What part of that don't you get?

Russia's run a long propaganda / disinformation campaign about "attacks" on Russian speakers purely aimed at areas where they can control the narrative. RA may be talking about these so called "victims" of war with his statement.

To put this to bed completely you would expect RA to say he is shocked and appalled at the illegal invasion of Ukraine and that Putin should cease all military action immediately. And any donations from RA go directly to Ukraine in rebuilding efforts after the war finishes.


There is a problem for him with such a statement. It would literally put him and his families lives at risk. And as long as Putin is in charge he would never be able to return to Russia.

The way Roman ran us it was never about making money, I guess he won it all in the end so he'd be happy with that.

But we'll be dropping back a few notches now, it was fun while it lasted. What a ride.

Football clubs are never big money makers. And there's no reason why you can't continue the same level of success with the right management in place. An oligarch / oil money makes it easier to achieve success but isn't the only way to do it.

His daughter has spoken out against Putin. If she can do it it would be easy enough for RA to come out and say it.

Because if he came out and said Putin is psychopath and this war needs to cease then people might take more notice.

Instead he's said zero to condone the invasion.

All he's indicated is when the war is over he'll throw a few roubles Ukraine's way to fix all the destruction his mate caused
