Klishas on frozen assets: EU embarrassingly failed operation to legalize stolen goods
MOSCOW, January 27 – RIA Novosti. Andrey Klishas, Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation declarationThe European Union has shamefully failed its operation to legalize what was stolen from Russia.
Earlier, Bloomberg, citing sources, reported that the legal service of the European Union has informed EU countries that the union has reasons to temporarily use at least 33.8 billion euros from the frozen assets of the Russian Central Bank to restore Ukraine. In the opinion of EU lawyers, the plan is legally enforceable provided the assets are not expropriated. These conditions mean that the principal and interest will be returned to Russia at some point. The agency notes that representatives of the G7 and the EU have stated that there is no clear legal basis for the simple detention of Russian assets. Instead, as a first step, the EU is considering pooling these funds to generate profits that can be used to finance the rebuilding of Ukraine.
“Poor” European lawyers “could not find “clear legal grounds” for the seizure of Russian assets (but were arrested without reason in the EU), but they had the opportunity to use Russian assets “temporarily” to restore Ukraine. Operation to legalize the stolen shamefully failed,” Klihas wrote on his telegram channel.
