As the parliamentarian noted, if such a decision is made, Moscow will give an “adequate answer.” He stressed that the US plans initially included the seizure of Russian money.
The initiative of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, to seize frozen Russian assets in favor of Ukraine is theft. Alexey Chepa, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, spoke about this in an interview with Life.
“This is theft. If this is done, of course, we will respond adequately. This (seizure of the foreign exchange reserves of the Russian Federation. – Approx. Life) was, in principle, part of the plans of the Americans. When our movement began to sign agreements on security guarantees, they began to put forward similar actions about what and what sanctions will be. The Americans understand everything very well,” he said.
In addition, according to the parliamentarian, Western countries will attempt to seize the assets of the Russian Federation, as this is part of their plans. Initially, they were preparing for the fact that certain actions would take place in Ukraine.
“Therefore, when they say “until the last Ukrainian”, it’s not just like that,” the interlocutor concluded.
