The Department of Justice is launching a team to enforce sanctions on Russian oligarchs. 

The Department’s “Task Force KleptoCapture” is a team of experts in sanctions, money laundering, tax enforcement and anti-corruption that will prosecute “Russian officials, government-aligned elites, and those who aid or conceal their unlawful conduct” who seek to evade the punishing sanctions imposed by the U.S.

“The Justice Department will use all of its authorities to seize the assets of individuals and entities who violate these sanctions,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement, per The Hill

“We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to investigate, arrest, and prosecute those whose criminal acts enable the Russian government to continue this unjust war,” he continued. “Let me be clear: if you violate our laws, we will hold you accountable.” 

During his State of the Union address, Biden previewed what the task force will look like. 

“We are joining with our European allies to find and seize your yachts, your luxury apartments, your private jets,” he said. “We are coming for your ill-begotten gains.”
