    A Global Hunt for Russian Oligarchs’ Assets Has Begun

    A Global Hunt for Russian Oligarchs’ Assets Has Begun

    Welcome everyone to the
    Martiak Market Update with your host Mark Martiak. Mark is a Managing Director
    of Investments with AGP/Alliance Global Partners, a
    registered investment adviser and broker-dealer, member of FINRA/SIPC. This show will explore topics
    ranging from market updates to the global economy and personal finance. Money
    is knowledge, and Mark wants to help you navigate your relationship with money
    by offering timely guidance and his unique perspective. Here's Mark Martiak.
    Mark speaking: Welcome.
    Thank you for joining me as we discuss key trends shaping our industries and
    markets.
    It’s been a humanitarian crisis for the
    people of Ukraine, many of whom have faced devastation as the Russian invasion
    and war entered a third week.


    You hear a lot about economic sanctions that
    have been put in place by countries including the U.S..


    During this program, I want to look at sanctions
    placed on Russia’s Oligarchs who are on the move amid a global dragnet that
    Western governments have cast to ensnare their yachts, villas, jets, and bank
    accounts.


    You May HaveWondered: What is a Russian Oligarch?Oligarchs — or extremely wealthy business leaders who are
    politically connected — http://www.case-research.eu/upload/publikacja_plik/4931074_SA%20296last.pdf (became)
    http://www.case-research.eu/upload/publikacja_plik/4931074_SA%20296last.pdf (more prominent) in Russia in the 1990s, but they are not unique to
    Russia.
    Many Russian oligarchs are heavily involved in and benefit from
    Russian President https://www.cbsnews.com/news/vladimir-putin-russia-ukraine-dwindling-options-isolation/ (Vladimir)
    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/vladimir-putin-russia-ukraine-dwindling-options-isolation/ (Putin's regime), with some serving in political positions.
    For example, when Putin opened a new bridge to
    Crimea in 2018 — a region https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ukraine-russia-invasion-what-you-need-to-know/ (Russia had annexed) from Ukraine in 2014 —
    the bridge was built by his friend Arkady Rotenberg's company and the truck he
    drove across it was made by Sergei Chemezov's state corporation Rostec,
    according to https://carnegiemoscow.org/commentary/76555 (The)
    https://carnegiemoscow.org/commentary/76555 (Carnegie Moscow Center,) a think-tank that focuses on domestic and
    foreign policy.
    There is often a line of succession for oligarchs
    in politics. For example, Dmitry Patrushev, the son of Russian Security Council
    Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, was appointed as Russia's minister of agriculture,
    according to The Carnegie Moscow Center.



    Numerous Russian oligarchs and government officials were
    sanctioned by the U.S. in 2018, in part for the regime's occupation of Crimea
    and for continuing to instigate violence in Ukraine, https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm0338 (according to the U.S.)
    https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm0338 (Treasury Department), which announced the sanctions. Rotenberg’s son and Patruskev
    were included in that round of sanctions for their involvement with the regime.
    "Russian oligarchs and elites who profit from this corrupt
    system will no longer be insulated from the consequences of their government's
    destabilizing activities," Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said in a
    press release about those sanctions. (1)
    The Biden administration announced it
    would expand its sanctions on Russian oligarchs, further taking aim at Putin’s
    close-knit, elite network. The Biden administration blames the oligarchs for providing the
    resources critical to supporting Putin's invasion.
    "Treasury
    is committed to holding Russian elites to account for their support of President
    Putin's war of choice," said Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. "Today,
    across the U.S. government and in coordination with partners and allies, we are
    demonstrating our commitment to impose massive costs on Putin's closest
    confidants...
