Russian oligarch donates for Ukrainian war victims: club owners Dimitrij Rybolowlew dissociates itself at the French football first division as Monaco to Russia's attack on the neighbors Ukraine not only by words of President Vladimir Putin and supports the suffering civilian population in the war area with donations.
To the amount of Rybolowlews conducted over the Red Cross led the association of national player Kevin Volland and U21 European Champion Ismail Jakobs no detailed information. The scope was merely called "considerably".
"It is absolutely necessary to support those who suffer the most," Rybolowlew explained in Monaco's press release. Accordingly, the billionaire not only used funds from the cashound of the Mondassen, but also by the account of his Belgian association Cercle Bruges and from other companies from the possession of his family, "to make humanitarian aid".
Putin's name used Rybolowlew in the statement as little bit the term "war". The events in Ukraine called Monaco's owners an "armed conflict".
Rybolowlew had left his Russian home 2010 and has a Cypriot pass. The former entrepreneur is not at the list of European Union (EU) with names of Russian persons whose possessions were frozen because of the proximity to Putin. The basis of his assets esteemed to six to eight billion euros has been the sale of the mining company Uralkali, where the previous formula 1 team sponsor Dimitrij Masepin acts as a majority shareholder.
Monaco had acquired Rybolowlew a year after his farewell from Russia for the symbolic purchase price of one euro. After the salvation of the southern Terranos before the threatening second division descent, the 55-year-old has invested several hundred million euros in the association.
Monaco's only success in the "era Rybolowlew" is so far the French championship of 2017. In the previous year, the mongels still reached the final of the National Cup competition.
