ROMAN Abramovich’s £150m Kensington mansion could soon be home to Ukrainian refugees thanks to a government proposal. Cabinet sources have revealed Levelling-up Secretary Michael Gove has put forward the idea to house the homeless victims of war in the lavish homes of Russian oligarchs.

Abramovich’s triplex penthouse in a 37-storey Chelsea Waterfront building, potentially around £30m, has already been seized. It is believed his other property, a six-storey townhouse in Eaton Square, which he acquired for £28m, has also been seized.

Britain and the EU may have to welcome 15million Ukrainian refugees if Vladimir Putin keeps up his bloody campaign of terror.

The 55-year-old sanctioned owner of the European Champions put his 15-bedroom mansion in Kensington Palace Gardens up for sale last week with a price tag of a staggering £150m. The Grade II-listed home was once used as the Russian embassy.

The United Nations fears the number of people displaced by the increasingly brutal invasion will be three times higher than expected .

It comes as the UK Government announced they wil be launching the Local Sponsorship Scheme for Ukraine. The Government website states, "Following the invasion of Ukraine, the government is launching a new sponsorship scheme to make sure that Ukrainians who have been forced to flee their homes have a route to safety in the UK.

"Charities, businesses and community groups can come forward to sponsor Ukrainians who do not have already established family ties to the UK.
