One of Russia's richest men says the war in Ukraine should be stopped as soon as possible as it is a "tragedy" for both sides.

Ukrainian-born Mikhail Fridman says he can't comment more directly, as he thinks it would result in a risk - not just to him personally but also to his colleagues and staff.

He has also say a blanket ban on Russians doing business in the world seemed unfair.

Meanwhile, Fridman has stepped down from the board of directors of Veon, the mobile network operator says.

He is the biggest shareholder in the Amsterdam-based company, which operates networks in Ukraine and Russia as well as Algeria, Kazakhstan and Pakistan.
