LONDON – Britain will seize the properties of Russian oligarchs if there is the legal basis to do so, British Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab said on Friday.

“If we’ve got the evidence and there is the legal basis, we’ll do it,” Raab told LBC Radio when asked about the prospect of properties being seized in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Asked if he would support using such properties to house Ukrainian refugees, he said: “Yes, absolutely. We’re looking at everything in the round.”
