Half of Russia's richest billionaires are not sanctioned

March 30, 2022 - Half of Russia’s 20 richest people have not been sanctioned over its war in Ukraine. The UK, EU and U.S. have sanctioned just 10 tycoons worth a total of least $200 billion before the war started.

The list of who’s blocked – and who’s not – reveals a patchwork pattern of cross-border penalties that has spared many Russians with business interests in key global markets, according to Bloomberg News analysis.

The attempt to isolate Russia from international finance and pressure President Vladimir Putin – while minimising spillover to the global economy – has seen the UK sanction 10 of the richest billionaires and the European Union nine. By contrast, the U.S. has sanctioned just four, Bloomberg said.
