A private jet owned by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich flew from Moscow to Israel after being hit by British sanctions last week.
The Gulfstream G650ER jet with the registration LX-Ray took off from Moscow on Sunday afternoon and landed in the city of Tel Aviv in the evening, according to the flight tracking website FlightRadar24.
The flight lasted five and a half hours, FlightRadar data shows. It is unclear if Ambramovich was on board.
The jet had flown to Moscow from Istanbul in Turkey on Saturday, according to FlightRadar24.
The Gulfstream G650ER jet can carry up to 19 passengers and sleep up to 10 people, according to the aircraft manufacturer website. It costs $ 65 million, according to one comparison page for private jets.
Abramovich, owner of Chelsea Football Club, was among the seven Russian oligarchs who were sanctioned by the United Kingdom on Thursday. The sanctions include the freezing of the oligarchs’ assets and a ban on doing business with the country.
Abramovich has a net worth of $ 13.6 billionaccording to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index.
He formerly announced he sold the club, but Britain’s sanctions mean he can not proceed with the sale. He has not been sanctioned by any other country yet.
The billionaire obtained Israeli citizenship in 2018 after being exposed to delays in renewing his British visa, according to reports.
