Today, the United States, in coordination with Allies and partners, is targeting other Russian elites and family members who continue to support President Putin despite his brutal invasion of Ukraine…

These people and their family members will be cut off from the US financial system, their US assets will be frozen, and their property will be prohibited from use. The Department of Treasury will share financial information and other evidence, as appropriate, with the Department of Justice to support criminal prosecutions and asset seizures.

Today, the United States will sanction a long list of Putin’s cronies and family members. One of the elites is Alisher Burhanovich Usmanov, one of Russia’s wealthiest individuals and a close ally of Putin. Its property will be prohibited for use in the United States and by American persons – including his superyacht, one of the largest in the world, which has just been seized by our ally Germany, and his private jet, one of the largest private planes in Russia.

The United States will also sanction Dmitry Peskov, who, as Putin’s spokesman, is a major purveyor of Putin’s propaganda. The United States will also impose visa restrictions on 19 oligarchs and 47 of their family members and relatives.

As President Biden said, [we] will continue to work with our allies and partners to hold to account the Russian oligarchs and corrupt leaders who profit from this violent regime.

The United States and governments around the world will work to identify and freeze the assets that Russian elites and their family members hold in our respective jurisdictions – their yachts, luxury apartments, cash and other ill-gotten gains. .
