British Prime Minister calls on the West to be “courageous” in confiscating Russian assets

British Prime Minister Rishi Suna called on the West to be “courageous” in confiscating Russian assets, as well as to tighten anti-Russian sanctions and intensify arms supplies to the Kyiv regime. His article was published in The Times.

Sunak also came out in support of the EU's plan to transfer profits from Russian assets to Ukraine, which he called a “start.” According to him, the West “must find legal ways to seize the assets themselves,” and then give them to Kyiv. According to him, Ukraine also needs to transfer as many long-range weapons, drones and shells as possible.

Earlier, the EU approved a resolution on storing profits from Russian assets for their subsequent use in the interests of Ukraine. It was also announced that Russian assets will remain frozen “until compensation for the damage to Ukraine”, this was stated in the statement of the G7 countries following the summit. The G7 states agreed to take measures to limit Russian budget revenues from energy exports. As noted, this is planned to be achieved by tightening the “price ceiling” on the sale of Russian oil. As the G7 countries said in a statement, they are going to “exert significant pressure” on Russian exports of energy and other commodities.

Earlier, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the United States was faced with problems with the seizure of frozen assets Russia. According to her, US authorities recognize that this process is not as simple as it might seem. She noted that Western countries have frozen approximately $300 billion in Russian assets over 2 years, and the main problem is that these funds are stored not in the United States, but in other countries.

On Friday, the Politico newspaper reported that The leaders of the G7 states do not yet plan to announce measures to use frozen Russian assets for Ukraine, since not all member countries approve of this idea in the European Union.
