Volodin commented on the US decision on Russian assets

< br />

MOSCOW, April 22 Moscow now has the right to respond appropriately to the US decision regarding Russian assets, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said in his Telegram -channel.
“Washington made a frankly illegal decision, committing theft. <…> Our country now has every reason to make symmetrical decisions in relation to foreign assets,” he said.
The State Duma speaker recalled that such a step would turn against the United States and undermine the trust of other states and investors in it. In addition, this will create a precedent on the basis of which any state will have the right to act in a similar way, Volodin added. According to him, this will cause irreparable damage to international law.

The US House of Representatives on Saturday overwhelmingly passed a bill that includes a provision for the confiscation of Russia's sovereign assets in favor of Ukraine. The document is sent to the Senate for consideration.
