Working with Spanish authorities, the U.S. Department of Justice seized a $90 million yacht owned by Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg that was docked in Spain as part of the Justice Department’s enforcement of “sweeping sanctions” in response to Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine.

Vekselberg is said to have “close ties” to Russian President Vladimir Putin and former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, according to U.S. Treasury Department sanctions imposed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that were quoted in an FBI affidavit that sought and gained seizure-warrant approval from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
