The Russia-Ukraine conflict is still ongoing, with both sides refusing to back down. The two countries have been involved in the war since the beginning of March, after Russia launched what it calls a ‘special military operation’.
And while this conflict had great effects on the global economy due to the sanctions imposed by the USA and the European Union on Russia, it also found a way to affect football.

Roman Abramovich allegedly poisoned by the Russians to prevent peace talks in Kiev
The club most affected by this was the English Premier League team Chelsea. The blues were owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, and that would clearly be a problem given that Abramovich is one of the oligarchs accused of financing Vladimir Putin’s war crimes.
Since then Roman Abramovich has stepped down as owner of Chelsea Football Club, while the UK government continues to pressure Chelsea with additional sanctions. Also, Roman Abramovich is trying to negotiate peace between Russia and Ukraine.
It shuttles between Kyiv and Moscow to mediate between the two sides. In the midst of all this, however, there are reports that Roman Abramovich was poisoned during a meeting in Kiev with Ukrainian peace negotiators. Abramovich and others present were attacked with a suspected chemical weapon during the meeting. Reports accuse Russian extremists of doing so because they do not want peace talks to progress.
Members show symptoms of developed red eyes, painful watering eyes, and peeling skin on their face and hands. According to the latest news, Roman Abramovich and others present have gradually recovered and are currently not in danger.
