In April, the FBI and Spanish authorities seized mega yacht Monday owned by oligarch and Putin friend Viktor Vekselberg – amid calls for even tighter sanctions on Russia following new discoveries of atrocities outside Kyiv.

The 254-foot vessel was docked in Palma de Mallorca, the capital of Spain’s Balearic Islands and a playground and tax haven for the wealthy.

The seizure was a joint operation including FBI and Homeland Security Investigations as well as Spain’s Civil Guard carried out at the request of U.S. authorities.

The seizure was the the first in the U.S. government’s sanctions initiative to ‘seize and freeze’ giant vessels and other pricey assets of Russian elites in an effort to turn up pressure on Putin in response to the invasion.

It came hours after new horrors emerged from the suburb of Bucha outside Kyiv, Ukrainian forces who pushed back Russian invaders discovered bodies of Ukrainian citizens shot dead in the street, some with their hands tied behind their backs.
