“He gave others an example”: a third of the surveyed readers of “Rosbalt” were glad of Abramovich’s “flight” to Portuguese citizenship


THIS MESSAGE (MATERIAL) IS CREATED AND (OR) DISTRIBUTED BY A FOREIGN MASS MEDIA PERFORMING THE FUNCTIONS OF A FOREIGN AGENT, AND (OR) A RUSSIAN LEGAL OFFICER AND A FUNCTIONAL OFFICER.

The opinions of the readers of Rosbalt, who took part in the poll regarding the acquisition of Portuguese citizenship by the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, were divided, but a third of the respondents (28.97%) are satisfied that Abramovich “voted with his feet and set an example for others.”

20.36% of respondents were “surprised” that the oligarch chose not Belarus.

The same number (20.79%) “felt sorry for this unfortunate man” who “exchanged a superpower for a European backwater”.

19.84% of survey participants supported this decision and admitted that they envy Abramovich.

10.04% of the readers who took part in the survey considered this a betrayal for the former head of the Russian region (from 2001 to 2008 he served as governor of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug – ed.)

We will remind, on December 18, media sources reported that Roman Abramovich became a citizen of Portugal. The oligarch took advantage of the Portuguese “Law of Return”, which allows the descendants of Sephardic Jews (immigrants from Spain and Portugal) and Converso Jews (those who were forcibly converted to Christianity) to obtain Portuguese citizenship.

Later, the information about Abramovich’s obtaining Portuguese citizenship was confirmed by the country’s Ministry of Justice. He is also a citizen of Russia and Israel.
