We finally see that it is not Ukrainians or Europeans who are paying for the destruction, but the aggressor, — Kira Rudik on the transfer of interest from the frozen russian assets

Transfer of interests from frozen russian assets to Ukraine is an extraordinary step on the track of confiscation of frozen assets, but Ukraine continues to work to get not only interest but also all frozen russian assets for reconstruction. This was reported by Ukrainian MP, «Golos» party leader, ALDE Vice President Kira Rudik. «We are extremely grateful to our allies for the fact that at the end of this year, we will see and feel that the destruction caused by the war will not be paid for by the Ukrainian people or the citizens of allied countries, but by putin. And russian money, which is frozen, will be used within the framework of the Ukraine Facility project for the defense of Ukraine and the reconstruction of our state», — the leader of «Golos» emphasized. As soon as July, Ukraine will receive the first tranche of interest from the frozen russian assets in Europe. And in general, there will be two such transfers this year, with a total of 2 to 3 billion euros. «At the moment, the European Commission has decided to transfer interest from the frozen russian assets. We expect 2 to 3 billion euros this year in two tranches, the first of which will be in July. We also expect that the US will be able to reach an agreement with the representatives of the G7 regarding the freezing of russian assets for the next 10 years. It is not a perfect option for us, we would like the countries to immediately transfer to us all the assets of the russian federation that they have, but at least this way these funds will work for Ukraine and our victory», — said the MP.
