Abramovich is among several Russian billionaires added last month to the list of people sanctioned by Britain and the European Union over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and in the meantime governments have begun taking steps to seize Russian billionaire yachts and other assets.

In a press release issued on Wednesday, the local government of the island of Jersey announced that on April 12, the royal court imposed a freezing order on assets worth more than seven billion dollars that are suspected of having related to Roman Abramovici and which are either located in Jersey or are owned by entities incorporated in Jersey. Jersey police also searched a number of locations that are suspected of being linked to Abramovich’s business.
