The Russia-Ukraine conflict is still an ongoing situation in which both parties refuse to back down. The two countries have been locked in the war since early March after Russia launched what it called a “military special operation”.
And while this conflict has had a huge impact on the global economy due to US and European Union sanctions against Russia, it has found its way to impacting football as well.

Roman Abramovich is said to have been poisoned by Russians in Kyiv to prevent peace talks
And the club hardest hit was English Premier League club Chelsea. The Blues were owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, which would obviously pose a problem since Abramovich was one of the oligarchs accused of financing Vladimir Putin’s war crimes.
Since then, Roman Abramovich has resigned as owner of Chelsea Football Club while the UK government continues to pressure Chelsea with additional sanctions. Also, Roman Abramovich tried to hold peace talks between Russia and Ukraine.
He commutes between Kyiv and Moscow to act as an intermediary between the two parties. However, amid all this, there were reports that Roman Abramovich was poisoned along with Ukrainian peace negotiators during a meeting in Kyiv. Abramovich and others present were attacked with a suspected chemical weapon during the meeting. Reports accuse Russian hardliners of doing so as they don’t want peace talks to move forward.
Members present developed symptoms of red eyes, painful watery eyes, and peeling skin on the face and hands. According to the latest news, Roman Abramovich and others present are gradually improving and are currently out of danger.
