The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York has issued a seizure warrant to seize two planes, a Boeing 787-8 aircraft and a Gulfstream G650ER aircraft owned and controlled by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich.  The warrant is based on the finding that the airplanes are subject to seizure and forfeiture based on probable cause of violations of the Export Control Reform Act (ECRA) and the recent sanctions issued against Russia.[1]
