U.S. court orders seizure of two Abramovich’s aircraft


For breaking export limits and US sanctions on Russia, a US judge has ordered the seizure of two planes owned by Russian businessman Roman Abramovich.

Abramovich, 55, is one of Russia's billionaires who has been singled out by sanctions imposed in response to the country's invasion of Ukraine.

A federal judge in New York granted a federal agent's plea to seize a Boeing 787-8 and a Gulfstream G650ER, according to the Department of Justice.

In a statement, the Department of Justice stated the seizure and forfeiture were "based on probable cause of violations of the Export Control Reform Act (ECRA) and the recent sanctions enacted against Russia."

The airplanes are owned and managed by the former owner of Chelsea FC, and have a combined value of more than $410 million. 

Each aircraft was allegedly flown from a third country to Russia in March, according to US authorities.

The two aircrafts in question are Boeing 787 and a Gulfstream G650ER, this is according to court documents.

Boeing is currently in the United Arab Emirates, while the Gulfstream is still in Russia, according to the Department of Justice.
