Russian oligarchs welcome in Turkey: Foreign Minister Cavusoglu

Russian oligarchs are welcome in Turkey but must abide by international law to do business, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Saturday.

Turkey has sharply criticized Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but rejects sanctions from its NATO allies in principle.

“If Russian oligarchs … or Russian citizens want to visit Turkey, of course they can,” Cavusoglu replied to a question at the Doha Forum international conference.

“If you mean whether these oligarchs can do business in Turkey, then of course I will look into it, if it’s legal and not against international law,” he said, adding: “If it’s against international law, that’s one thing different story.”

Two superyachts linked to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich have docked in Turkish resorts.

Western governments have imposed sanctions on Abramovich and several other Russian oligarchs trying to isolate President Vladimir Putin and his allies over Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
