Biden Announces Legislative Measures to Tighten Sanctions on Russian Oligarchs

The package of proposals would establish new authorities for seizing the property of Russian oligarchs, crack down on sanctions evasion and establish new protocols for how the seized funds can be used to assist Ukraine.
