CHELSEA owner Roman Abramovich’s daughter Sofia has shared an anti-Vladimir Putin meme on social media.
Abramovich, 55, was this week named as one of 35 oligarchs identified as aiding Putin’s ‘kleptocracy’ by MPs.

The Blues supremo has effectively been barred from living in the UK, having withdrawn his UK Tier 1 investor visa application in 2018.
Abramovich denies links with the Kremlin, amid British sanctions on high-profile Russians.
The billionaire, once a permanent fixture at Stamford Bridge, is hardly seen at his club’s West London home these days, although did pay a passing visit last year.
Daughter Sofia, however, does still spend a lot of time in London.
Amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine this week, the 27-year-old influencer shared a meme on Instagram slamming Putin.
The image shows the sentence ‘Russia wants a war with Ukraine’, with ‘Russia’ crossed out and replaced with ‘Putin’.

It then features the message: “The biggest and most successful lie of Kremlin’s propaganda is that most Russians stand with Putin’.
An image of the Russian president is then crossed out.
It comes as:
Sofia joins a growing list of high-profile Russians to speak out against their country’s invasion of Ukraine – including sports stars.
The most high-profile footballer to criticise Putin so far is 45-cap international Fedor Smolov.
He wrote: “No war!!!’ before adding a broken heart emoji and the Ukrainian flag.
Zenit St Petersburg, the team Putin supports, dropped Ukrainian Yaroslav Rakitskyi to the bench on Thursday night after the defender shared an anti-war message on Instagram.
