From a recent answer:
...but owner was recently included in sanction lists and had his yacht expropriated
I've heard from the news that the West is "hunting" for ships belonging to "Russian oligarchs" even in open ocean. On what basis can they confiscate this property?
- As far as my understanding goes, if the ship in question is registered in the Western country or some of their puppet allies, they can do whatever they want to that ship?
- I assume that if the ship docks in the Western country there may be ways to delay its departure indefinitely?
- What if the ship is not registered in a country which would help the West expropriate it (such as being registered in Russian port e.g. St. Petersburg) and it never docks in a Western country - would not an attempt to seize it in the international waters be an act of high seas piracy?
What's the legal status of that bizarre easter eggs hunt?
