Moscow responded to West to threat of confiscation of Russian assets

Russia will respond to the attempts of the West to withdraw Russian assets and property to transfer them to Ukraine.

This was announced at a briefing by the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova.

“attempts to encroach on Russian property, assets will be regarded as robbery and will not be left without an appropriate answer,” she said.

The diplomat emphasized that there is no legal way to assign assets of the Russian Federation.

“I understand, of course, in the world that is now imposing a collective West, everything is possible, but if we are talking about the right and legality that have been operating for decades, then there is no legal way to take anything from and assigning anything and assigning anything yourself, ”Zakharova noted.
