The oligarchs start screaming


After a weak initial effort last week, the United States and Europe are getting more serious about chasing the wealth of Vladimir Putin’s billionaire coterie. The countries said on Saturday they were creating a transatlantic task force to find and seize their ill-gotten gains.

The task force will “identify, track and freeze the assets of sanctioned Russian companies and oligarchs,” a senior Biden administration official said. “We’re going after their yachts, their luxury apartments, their money and their ability to send their children to posh universities in the West.”
