Zelensky signs law to seize and sell Russian assets

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a sanctions law Monday enabling officials in the country to seize and sell Russian assets related to Russia’s military invasion in order to support Ukraine’s war efforts.

The law is designed to rapidly resolve cases and targets Russian oligarchs, covering offenses including donating to the Kremlin and setting up puppet governments or elections in Russian-controlled parts of Ukraine, per an NPR translation.

It’ll remain in effect while Ukraine remains under martial law.
