The property of several Ukrainian companies, including shipbuilding plant Zaliv and cement plant Bakhchysarai, will be taken over by Moscow-installed proxies in annexed Crimea, according to Sergey Aksyonov, a Russian-installed proxy on the peninsula.

Proxies are also looking to appropriate President Volodymyr Zelensky's property in Crimea, Interfax reported.

On Oct. 18, proxies responsible for lawmaking in Crimea adopted a resolution, "allowing" them to seize property owned by "foreigners from unfriendly countries."

According to Aksyonov, Ukrainians own a lot of commercial and tourist facilities in Crimea, as well as apartments and houses. Some of them are Zelensky, ex-head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau Artem Sytnyk, former governor of the National Bank Kyrylo Shevchenko, and former head of the Constitutional Court Oleksandr Tupytskyi, Aksyonov said.
