Ukraine’s anti-graft court approved the confiscation of assets linked to Volodymyr Saldo, a Russia-appointed head of the partly occupied Kherson region in southern Ukraine, it said early on Tuesday.

Mr Saldo’s confiscated property includes several land plots in the Kherson region, as well as a hotel, four apartments, a three-storey building, a house, two parking spaces, and a car, in the southern Kherson, Odesa and Crimea regions.

In addition, Ukraine’s high anti-corruption court gave green light to confiscating 99.86 percent of Kashtan PrJSC, which develops a granite quarry in the Zhytomyr region, and 30 percent of Delta Service PrJSC, a transport company – shares owned by Mr Saldo’s wife.

It, however, did not allow confiscating shares in two companies registered in the name of the collaborator’s daughter.

The decision may be appealed within five days, something that seems unlikely since Mr Saldo is to be arrested on charges of collaboration as soon as he leaves the occupied territory of Ukraine.

Volodymyr Saldo, a former years-long mayor of Kherson, was appointed by Russian occupying forces as the chief governor of the Kherson region in April 2022.

His assets have since been seized in Ukraine, and he has been subjected to Ukrainian and Western sanctions on grounds of collaboration.
