United Kingdom: Russian Billionaire Investigated by UK for Sanctions Violations

The UK is investigating whether Russian billionaire Petr Aven violated sanctions, in what may be the first such probe since the war in Ukraine began, people familiar with the situation said.

Authorities raided Aven’s English home last week and are scrutinising money transfers to the UK by Aven following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, the people said asking not to be identified because the matter is private. He is scheduled to be questioned in September over the transfers and what they were used for.
