Navalny accuses Portugal of taking bribes to naturalize Abramovich

Alexei Navalny, an opponent of Vladimir Putin, criticized the Portuguese state for allegedly taking bribes to attribute Portuguese nationality to Roman Abramovich, the multimillionaire owner of Chelsea.

“Putin’s closest oligarch has found a country where he can pay some bribes to end up in the European Union and NATO,” he pointed out, via his Twitter account, referring to Abramovich.

Navalny also quipped that the West “is frightened by Putin’s attack on Ukraine, but gives citizenship to the trusted oligarch.”

“Portuguese employees carry suitcases with money”, he also accused.

Roman Abramovich has been a Portuguese citizen since April. The Russian billionaire was naturalized under the Nationality Law as a Sephardic Jew, according to the “Público” newspaper.
