Earlier, Ukrainian Forbes, citing the head of the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption, Oleksandr Novikov, said that Fridman was consulting with the Ukrainian authorities on the issue of obtaining citizenship and re-registering assets.
However, later, a representative of Alfa Group RBC denied this information.
The European Union imposed sanctions against the Russian businessman, providing for the freezing of assets and a ban on entry. The justification for the EU restrictions stated that Friedman “participated in the Kremlin's efforts to lift US sanctions imposed to counter Russia's aggressive policy towards Ukraine”, “actively supported and benefited materially or financially” from the leaders responsible for the annexation of Crimea and the “destabilization of Ukraine.” Later, the UK joined the EU sanctions.
Friedman did not agree with the EU decision and filed a lawsuit in the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg against the EU Council. After the imposition of sanctions, Fridman resigned from the board of directors of Alfa-Bank and ceased to be its largest shareholder. The entrepreneur also left LetterOne.
