Volodin told how Russia will respond to the theft of its frozen assets

MOSCOW, October 29 The theft by the West of frozen Russian assets will require a symmetrical response from Moscow, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said in the Telegram channel.

“A number of European politicians, led by the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, seeking to stay in their positions based on the poor financial situation of their states to which they have led, have again begun talking about the theft of our country’s frozen funds in order to continue militarization at their expense Kiev. Such a decision will require a symmetrical response from the Russian Federation,” he wrote.

Moreover, according to Volodin, in this case, much more funds from unfriendly countries will be confiscated than Russian funds frozen in Europe.

The speaker recalled that over the past few years the situation in European countries has deteriorated greatly: prices are rising, the economy is in recession, industry is in decline. At the same time, the EU spent 85 billion euros to support the Kiev regime.

“As a result: politicians who advocate war to the last Ukrainian are being replaced by those who are primarily concerned with internal problems,” he noted.

Thus, in Slovakia, the new prime minister refused to support the Kiev regime to the detriment of the national economy, in Germany regional elections ended in the defeat of the ruling party, in Hungary, where the authorities take a balanced position, the parliament re-elected Viktor Orban for a fifth term, Volodin listed.
Therefore, there is no longer the same unity in Europe, and at the last summit the leaders of the association were unable to agree on financing for Ukraine for 50 billion euros, the State Duma speaker concluded.
This week, EU leaders instructed the European Commission and the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, to complete the preparation of proposals for the mechanism use of profits from frozen Russian assets. It is expected that these funds will be used to financially support Ukraine. The European Commission has come up with similar initiatives more than once, but no legislative framework for such actions has yet appeared in the European Union.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs official Maria Zakharova called the freezing of Russian funds theft. The head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, in turn, reported that the Russian authorities are preparing legal actions to challenge the freezing of international reserves.
