Finnish Customs Finds Links to Russia Tycoons in Yacht Probe

Finnish Customs has transferred eight yachts to the National Enforcement Authority after completing its investigation into vessels potentially linked to owners covered by sanctions against Russia and Belarus. 

“In the case of seven of the leisure craft, our further investigations showed that they could be linked to entities on the EU sanctions lists,” Sami Rakshit, director of the Enforcement Department of Finnish Customs, said in a press release Wednesday. One of the vessels was reported to the enforcement authorities following a tax audit.
