A Dutch court has handed squatters legal permission to remain in a mansion owned by a Russian tycoon. Arkady Volozh, who co-founded search engine giant Yandex, is currently subject to sanctions by the European Union. The court authorised the squatters to stay, after they argued that the house was currently empty and that he planned to rent or sell it in breach of the sanctions.
