The move that ended up sparking international backlash as the biggest move, the $1 billion “Eclipse,” in the early months of the entrenched conflict in Mugla, remains in the Marmaris province not far from where it is. My Solaris, valued at $780 million. Both are registered in the Maldives. However, the fact that My Solaris stayed in the “cruise port” of Bodrum, a well-known Turkish seaside resort, attracted the attention of British lawyers, who noted that the “cruise port” is listed on the London Stock Exchange. The news immediately leaked to the British media, where the hypothesis of the violation of sanctions by Great Britain appeared.

Abramovich was poisoned, suspicions confirmed: chemical weapons.  Who wants to die

A situation that prompted the Russian billionaire to move his two yachts again, which left the ports in which they had moored since March and headed to the town of Gocek, and remained anchored at sea. For Eclipse, the green light awaits from the local port, which is owned by STFA, a Turkish company, while My solaris is parked off the waters of Bodrum, at Yalikavak Marina. But the story may be repeated in the coming months, considering that, according to Turkish media reports, the yachts will have to leave the region within three months with the onset of autumn.

Economic sanctions against Russia and leaving the airspace open have made Turkey one of the few destinations available for Russians who have decided to leave the country. Of these, about 20,000 since the conflict began in Ukraine, there are dissidents, journalists and academics, but there are also oligarchs traditionally close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Abramovich’s closeness to Putin prompted Ukrainian President Zelensky to demand that the White House block sanctions against the oligarchy, believing that he was someone who could mediate with the Kremlin. Abramovich himself was present on March 29 in Istanbul, when he met with the delegations of Russia and Ukraine to continue the negotiations that had previously begun in Belarus, without reaching a ceasefire agreement. Abramovich put the London club up for sale, promising to donate the proceeds to Ukrainian refugees only to witness the disruption of the transfer process as a result of the sanctions imposed in England against him. Purchased in 2003 for just £60m, Abramovich has since pumped some €2.3bn of capital into the London Football Club only to buy (about 500) players, in addition to making huge investments on the pitch and in the club’s infrastructure.
