The Phi has its own swimming pool and infinite wine cellar, according to its Dutch builders. Its ownership is uncertain but it is believed to be owned by a Russian businessman with links

View Transcript

The United States, in coordination with its allies and partners, continues to impose sanctions on Russia in response to the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. Task Force KleptoCapture, an interagency law enforcement initiative, was created in March 2022 to enforce these measures against Kremlin-linked Russian elites and their professional facilitators.

KleptoCapture is a US component of the Russian Elites, Proxies, and Oligarchs (REPO) Task Force, a multilateral initiative targeting Russian sanctions evasion. In addition to the high-profile pursuit of Russian yachts and luxury real estate, REPO countries have collectively frozen hundreds of billions of dollars in Russian state assets and tens of billions of dollars belonging to Kremlin-linked elites.

Please join Hudson Research Fellow Nate Sibley and Andrew Adams, director of Task Force KleptoCapture, to discuss recent developments in the unit’s ongoing work to hold Russian elites and their facilitators accountable.
