Hypocricy at its best!
Superyachts are art masterpieces, and they should be regarded as a symbol of art, according to International Customary Law, which prohibits causing damage to artefacts during times of war. I can’t think of Mona Lisa or a private collector’s painting into storage to put pressure to a Government.

Some African states may have the opportunity to host the artifacts through a sponsored coastal infrastructure, but as supported by the UN by providing aid in monetary and food programs, if they violate international sanctions, they may do more harm to themselves because the International Community may withhold aid for violating sanctions.
New players, such as China, the United Arab Emirates, and the Indian Ocean islands (maybe Tanzania always in the back of my head), will eventually benefit from the current situation.
Madness of war will escalate and the Balkans will be called to choose side; of course the Westerns will get a piece of the pie as peacemakers. I wonder if Superyachting be the same for the Russian Owners again… Will they genially return to their normal operations when the war is over and the hypocrisy continues by photographing the artifacts wherever they are.
If the law can change in the blink of an eye for Russians, why can’t it change to expropriate the world’s wealthiest people’s unnatural wealth? Quitting eating meat and expropriating excessive wealth could be considered civilization, but not by causing artifacts to deteriorate.
Meanwhile do the civilians pursuing the location of the yachts imitate the masses in the Pokémon Go game, or do anything else, essential, within their power to assist the helpless people of Ukraine who have lost their homes and peaceful lives?
