We are talking about hundreds of billions of euros: the G7 supports the transfer of Russian assets to Ukraine

G7 supports the transfer of Russian assets to Ukraine/Word and Deed

Dmitry Kuleba met with his colleagues from the G7 countries. The Foreign Minister noted that they support the idea of ​​transferring the assets of the aggressor state to Ukraine.

This was stated by Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba. He spoke about the details of the meeting in the G7 format – the negotiations were conducted by the foreign ministers.

The conversation was very specific and substantive

This meeting was a continuation of the talks between President Zelensky and the leaders of the G7, which took place on May 8 in video format. The conversation was very specific and substantive – behind closed doors, without telephones and no means of communication.

I can't talk about details. I will say the only thing: the idea that Russian assets should not only be arrested, but also transferred to Ukraine for the restoration of our state, comes very well. Kuleba explained.

We are talking, literally, about hundreds of billions of euros. The G7 also stated that it was ready to take part in the restoration of Ukraine after the war.

Earlier, Borrell spoke about the arrest of Russian assets

Earlier, EU High Representative Josep Borrell said that it was necessary not only freeze Russian assets, and arrest them, and then transfer them to Ukraine. These funds should be used to restore what was destroyed by Russia.

As an example, Borrell named the United States, which seized the assets of the Central Bank of Afghanistan and donated this money for humanitarian needs.

The Office responded positively to this proposal of Borrell

The office responded favorably to this proposal of Borrell President. Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Presidential Administration, noted that this could be a way to restore justice. Kyiv's position is unequivocal: Russia should be responsible for the destroyed infrastructure and destroyed cities.

The G7's position on Russia's aggression against Ukraine:

  • The G7 foreign ministers after the meeting emphasized that they would never recognize the change of the state borders of Ukraine.
  • The diplomats of Great Britain, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, the USA and the European Union published a general statement about this.
  • They stressed that they are focused on the economic and political isolation of Russia.
  • The Foreign Ministers assured that Ukraine has the right to self-defense in accordance with the UN Charter.
