Children of Russian politicians and businessmen against whom sanctions were imposed, the United States, expect difficulties when inheriting U.S. assets of the parents.
The heirs of the Russian defendants in the sanctions list of the United States may face great difficulties in obtaining the American rights to the assets and property of parents. Bar Association Pen & Paper estimated that children have 77 Russian politicians and businessmen located in the U.S. sanctions list.
“Sanctions may have an impact not only on the business or business partners of a specific person, but also on their personal property and their heirs” — quoted by “Kommersant” lawyer Anton Imanova.
It is noted that the distribution of sanctions on the family is beneficial for the United States, because frozen capital and property cannot be “transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn or otherwise decorated”. So the heirs in case of death of dad, you have to work thoroughly to return to the locked property.
For a start will have to pull parents from the sanctions list, which is very difficult, and most importantly, expensive. So not all will be able to master the marathon by knocking out American capital Russian officials.
Recall that under the sanctions the US is several hundred Russian citizens, including the former head of the Russian presidential administration Sergei Ivanov, the former head of Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin, and Arkady and Boris Rotenberg, the Federation Council speaker Valentina Matviyenko, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and Vladislav Surkov.
