There are rumours he and Putin are very close. Plus he was a member of the Duma etc. I would guess yes but i'm open to correction.
I did find this on Wiki (i know sometimes i should know better-but they often hit the spot)
In September 2008 Airbus
completed his new private aircraft, an A340-313X
. The quad jet with line number 955 and registration M-ABUS (ex-F-WWJM) will have the name "Bourkhan" and a modern brown, white and beige livery. Abramovich also owns three Eurocopter
helicopters (EC-145, registration P4-LGB, EC-135T1, registration P4-XTC and EC-155B, registration P4-HEC) based on his yachts, Blackbushe airport or at his estate Fyning Hill near Rogate in West Sussex, UK.
