Several, including the £1billion Eclipse and its sister ship, the £430million My Solaris, are anchored off Turkey.

He also transferred ownership of trusts holding billions of dollars to his seven children.

It is suggested the reorganisation was to avoid oncoming sanctions.

The investigation by the Guardian also revealed Abramovich reportedly invested $230million in a forestry company.

This was part-owned by the Russian government.

But he sold his stake for $110million before the invasion of Ukraine.
