The US government is now in control of a Russian oligarch's $466 million dollar luxury yacht, anchored in Fiji.

Fijian police seized the 106 metre vessel - Armadea - yesterday at the request of the US.

A number of Russian-owned yachts have been seized since Moscow ordered the invasion of Ukraine.

RNZ's Fiji correspondent Lice Movono spoke to Worldwatch's Perlina Lau about the seizure.
