Sanctioned oligarch Alisher Usmanov is pleading with the European courts to suspend the harsh sanctions so he can get his seized $800 million megayacht Dilbar back. At the same time his $300 million yacht ‘Alaiya’ is rushing towards Africa.

Try and try till you succeed is the line that pops into mind when looking at the current state of Alisher Usmanov, one of Russia’s leading billionaires, worth $17.9 billion. Alisher Usmanov owes most of his wealth to metal and mining operations and investments and currently owns 49% of Metalloinvest. According to Bloomberg, the oligarch filed an appeal at the EU’s General Court on April 29, asking the bloc’s second-highest tribunal to suspend the sanctions until judges decide.

German authorities seized Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov’s Dilbar, one of the biggest yachts in the world, worth nearly $600 million. The superyacht Dilbar remains at shipyards in the northern city of Hamburg. Losing an asset of this size can’t be easy on anyone, not even for a 68-year-old business magnate worth $17.9 billion. Usmanov said on the 28th of February, “I became the target of restrictive measures imposed by the European Union. I believe that such a decision is unfair, and the reason is employed to justify the sanctions are a set of false and defamatory allegations damaging my honor, dignity, and business reputation. I would use all legal means to protect my owner and reputation.’ Usmanov has learned from his mistakes and won’t take any chances with his much smaller but exquisite $300 million megayacht Alaiya. Especially after French authorities froze two helicopters on the French Riviera last week, as reported by Forbes.
