In the UK, a criminal case has been opened against the Russian billionaire, ex-head of the board of directors of Alfa-Bank Pyotr Aven, reports TASS, citing a source “close to the environment” of the man of ‘business. About that writes “Novaya Gazeta. Europe” .
“In the UK, a criminal case has been opened against Aven. The article relates to sanctions violations,” the agency’s source said.
According to TASS, Aven cannot spend more than £2.5 thousand ($3145) per month. British authorities believe he is spending more and “living beyond his means”, the agency said.
The European Union and Britain imposed sanctions on Petr Aven at the end of February. After being placed on the sanctions list, he complained in an interview with the Financial Times that he did not know how to survive.
“Will it be possible for me to hire a cleaner or a driver? I don’t drive a car…Maybe my daughter-in-law will drive. We don’t understand how to survive,” admitted then Aven.
