Russian collector Roman Abramovich is among the 220 people named in the U.S. Treasury’s “Kremlin Report,” which lists senior political figures and oligarchs who play significant roles in Russia’s economy. The report, which was partly declassified on Monday, was meant as a warning to Russian president Vladimir Putin, who has been interfering in Ukrainian politics and is suspected to have meddled in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, although further sanctions can’t be placed against individuals named in the list.

Abramovich, who has a net worth of about $11.2 billion, is listed in the report as an oligarch. He appeared last year on the ARTnews “Top 200 Collectors” list, and has also been listed in the past with his ex-wife, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art founder Dasha Zhukova, from whom he separated this past August. Among his notable purchases are a $86 million Francis Bacon triptych and a $33.6 million Lucian Freud painting.
