Meet the Billionaires
With Russia's attacks on Ukraine intensifying, the United States and others are going after Russian oligarchs thought to be part of President Vladimir Putin's inner circle. A new U.S. task force will focus on tracking down and prosecuting corruption and violation of current sanctions, with the goal of seizing assets. In his State of the Union address, President Joe Biden warned: "We are joining with our European allies to find and seize your yachts, your luxury apartments, your private jets. We are coming for your ill-begotten gains." Here's a look at the 12 richest Russians, according to Forbes' 2021 Billionaires list, and which of them are being targeted by this international effort. Some have already been sanctioned, but at least one Russian billionaire — perhaps surprisingly — is not exactly chummy with Putin.
