A federal judge in New York on Monday signed a warrant authorizing the seizure by the Justice Department of two jets owned by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich.
The seizure effort is the latest in a series of sanctions and economic attacks on Russian billionaires in response to their nation’s invasion of Ukraine.
The jets tied to Abramovich are a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, and a Gulfstream G650ER.
The Boeing, which according to court records is worth a whopping $350 million, is currently in Dubai.
The Gulfstream is in Russia, according to court records.
