PM misspoke over Roman Abramovich sanction claim
BBC News says Boris Johnson “misspoke” when he claimed Chelsea Football Club’s Russian owner Roman Abramovich faced sanctions, his spokesman has said.
During a statement in the House of Commons setting out measures against Russia, Mr Johnson said Mr Abramovich was “already facing sanctions”.
But Labour’s Chris Bryant later raised a point of order to ask about the accuracy of his remarks.
The prime minister’s official spokesman said the PM would correct the record.
Mr Abramovich has had issues with his UK visa before – but has not been sanctioned.
