according to the newspaper, it is connected with intention of London to reduce influence of the Kremlin which is accused of the organization of poisoning of Sergey and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury in the country.

the British authorities intend to revise more than 3 thousand investment visas issued since 2008 to Russians and other foreigners.

For this reason in May there were problems with extension of the visa at the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, the owner of the English Chelsea Football Club.

the Representative of Transparency International human rights organization Rachelle Davies Teka welcomed new measures. She has told that during the period from 2008 to 2015 hundreds of citizens of Russia which the human rights activist called "the country with the high level of corruption" have received visas of investors without appropriate check of the capitals. the British parliamentarians have urged to make by

the Statement has sounded against the background of the charges brought by London against two alleged employees of the Russian military intelligence on the case of use of fighting Beginner toxic agent concerning Sergey of Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
