A Russian businessman, philanthropist and billionaire based in the UK, Boris Mints, was convicted of violating the lockdown, writes the Daily Mail.
The 62-year-old founder of the O1 Group is said to have covered 470 miles, arriving February 17 at his Scottish castle, Letendy Tower from London. Stunned by his trip, locals immediately went to the police to complain about the likely violation of the restrictions in force in the pandemic. However, the police said that the businessman was able to explain the situation, and therefore no action was taken against him.
Talking to reporters, disgruntled neighbors said that the restrictive measures were violated not only by Mints, but also by his entourage. “He came from London with all his lackeys and entourage.” “It’s unpleasant when we all have to stay at home. He shouldn’t do that. It looks like if you have money, you are free to do whatever you want, ”they complained.
Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the timeline for lifting coronavirus restrictions in the country. The politician said that the first restrictions will be lifted on March 8. Thus, residents of Great Britain will be allowed to meet in the open air with one stranger, and schools will be opened.
Mints is the founder of the O1 Group investment company. He also created a private Museum of Russian Impressionism.
