Seizure Warrant for Aircraft Owned by Russian Oligarch

On June 6, 2022, a magistrate judge in New York issued warrants to seize two U.S.-manufactured aircraft owned by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich based on probable cause to believe that they were re-exported from third countries to Russia after February 22, 2022 — the date when the re-export of such items to Russia was prohibited under the Export Control Reform Act.  The probable cause affidavit sets forth the legal theory under which the aircraft are subject to civil forfeiture.
