The State Duma threatened the G7 with retaliatory measures for the transfer of Russian assets to Ukraine

If the West transfers frozen Russian assets to Ukraine, Moscow will have legal grounds to dispose of the assets of the G7 countries. This was stated by the Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin.

“Our country has moral and legal grounds for action regarding the assets of the G7 countries, which are greater than the frozen Russian funds,” Volodin wrote on Telegram. He emphasized that the transfer of Russian assets to Ukraine is a crime that “must be assessed by international structures.”

Earlier, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives supported a bill according to which frozen Russian assets would be transferred to Ukraine. The EU froze Russian funds in the amount of 207 billion euros after the start of a special operation in Ukraine. Russia then responded with similar measures.
