Sanctioning Russian Oligarchs Won’t Sway Putin

Authorities in Hamburg impounded Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov’s superyacht Dilbar after determining it was legally owned by his sister, who is also subject to western sanctions over the war in Ukraine.

The 156-meter (512 foot) vessel, the world’s largest by volume, had been undergoing refitting in the northern German port city. Boasting a 25-meter swimming pool and two helipads, it’s valued at $600 million to $750 million, according to the U.S. Treasury.
