The European Union is struggling to find and freeze the assets of sanctioned Russian billionaires, with the total figure increasing only modestly in recent months, reported from Bloomberg.

The bloc has so far frozen €20.9 billion ($22 billion) in assets, even though the EU has targeted Russia with 10 rounds of sanctions since President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine more than a year ago. Back in October, the bloc reported that some €17.4 billion had been frozen.
