Ukraine conflict: Israel regulates migration of Russian oligarchs
Maximum 48-hour limit for stopovers of aircraft arriving from Moscow
Israel's government will prevent Russian oligarchs holding dual passports from travelling to the Middle Eastern country to save themselves from economic sanctions. Following the Kremlin-led Army's invasion of Ukraine, the Tel Aviv executive formed a task force to monitor some Moscow-based businessmen, including those with alleged ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin's entourage.
According to local TV station "Channel12", the Tel Aviv government will limit to only 48 hours the amount of time private planes and yacht can stop at Israeli airports and ports. It is a decision related to the need to limit the mass arrival of private or chartered planes departing from Russia to Israel. At least 14 aircraft landed at the "Ben Gurion" airport in the last 12 days.
Among these there is also the plane of the entrepreneur Roman Abramovich, former owner of the British soccer team Chelsea with double Russian-Israeli citizenship, arrived last night in Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, for weeks the Israeli Foreign Minister, Yair Lapid, has warned his colleagues in the executive branch from granting favors to Russian oligarchs, talking about risks from the diplomatic point of view.
