Seizures and Sanctions: Pressure on Russian Oligarchs


Executive Summary

In response to Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine, Western nations have taken aim at Moscow’s wealthy elite. The financial assets of Russian Oligarchs, some of the richest and most powerful people in the country, have increasingly become a target of the West. Many governments, including the U.S., U.K., and Italy, have frozen Oligarchs’ assets and seized their property. These efforts undertaken by NATO countries and its allies are intended to increase internal pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin, as those targeted by the sanctions have influence over and access to the inner workings of the Russian government. Our report attempts to identify targeted Oligarchs and track specific measures taken against them.
