On Mar 2nd, the US Department of Justice announced the establishment of task force KleptoCapture dedicated to enforcing the sweeping sanctions, export restrictions, and economic countermeasures that the US and EU imposed in response to Russia’s unprovoked military invasion of Ukraine. The task force targeted the crimes of Russian officials, government-aligned elites, and those who aided or concealed their unlawful conduct. The task force included agents and analysts from numerous law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security and Internal Revenue Service. 

The task force was authorized to investigate and prosecute any criminal offense related to its mission, including conspiracy to defraud the US by interfering in and obstructing lawful government functions, money laundering, false statements to financial institutions; bank fraud, and various tax offenses. Deputy attorney general Lisa Monaco said they would use every tool to freeze and seize criminal proceeds. Arrests and prosecution would be sought when supported by the facts and the law. 

Even if defendants could not be immediately detained, asset seizures and civil forfeitures of unlawful proceeds would be used, including personal real estate, financial, and commercial assets. In addition, the task force would complement the work of the transatlantic task force whose mission was identifying and seizing the assets of sanctioned individuals and companies around the world. Pursuant to Miles Guo’s exposure in the grand broadcast on Mar 2nd, sanctioned Russian oligarchs and officials possessed assets of up to $17 trillion in the US.
