Londongrad: Ukrainska Pravda tracks down Russian oligarchs in London

Friday, 1 September 2023, 13:43

Russian oligarchs and London have been coexisting in the same information space for decades. There have been regular mentions of the world's most expensive properties, scandalous lawsuits, and the children of the Russian elite. Now they have come to be associated in the Western world with people who are increasingly promoting hatred of this world. 

In our quest to track down the Russians linked to Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine – and their assets – there was no way we could miss out London, the city of big Russian money. 

This is the story of how Ukrainska Pravda searched for – and found – Mikhail Fridman and other well-known Russians in the land they call "foggy Albion".
