Government seizing assets

Is it legal for the government (in this case, Russia) to seize the assets of rich criminals (Russian Mafia) they have arrested and keep the money for themselves? Alternatively, if criminal money is hidden behind dummy corporations or if the criminal owns a legal buisness as cover, can the government seize the company, force a sale and keep the profit? And if the Mafia caught on to this, what steps could they take to prevent the government stealing all their dough?
