Ireland froze the assets of Russians in the amount of 1.7 billion euros. They included the funds of the oligarchs of the Russian Federation, as well as enterprises and institutions associated with them. This publication reports Irish Times.

According to the source, most of the amount is made up of financial assets of wealthy Russians in various banking institutions and funds. Also, the Irish government seized their property, which includes private jets, yachts and, to a lesser extent, luxury real estate.

Irish Times note that local authorities are strictly determined to comply with sanctions against the Russian Federation. Journalists report that the Central Bank of Ireland sent letters to a number of business organizations reminding them of their role in overseeing financial sanctions and the responsibility of every Irishman to comply with EU bans. The appeal also refers to the negative consequences for helping to circumvent sanctions.
