We begin our tour in British newspapers from the Guardian newspaper and a report by John Enguide-Thomas, titled: “Activists say Dubai should be blacklisted after failing to fight Russian oligarchy.”

The report notes that activists and politicians have called for the UAE to be blacklisted for its failure to curb the flow of “dirty money” and its failure to assist other countries in implementing the sanctions imposed on the Russian oligarchs were imposed.

The report adds that the Gulf state has emerged as a major haven for wealthy Russians fleeing the impact of global sanctions, as their private jets and giant yachts depart for the Emirates following the invasion of Ukraine.

“Dubai has always been a safe place for dirty money,” Bill Browder, a financial expert and critic of Vladimir Putin’s regime, told the Guardian. “It should now be blacklisted and its leaders should not be welcome here.”
