Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergei Lavrov reacted to the idea of transferring frozen Russian assets to Ukraine. He commented on the situation while talking to reporters.
Previously, such a proposal was made by the head European diplomacy Josep Borrell. In his opinion, these funds should be used for recovery after the special operation. However, Lavrov is convinced that this is theft, which they do not even try to hide.
On Tuesday, May 3, Borrell also stated that in the plans of the European Union disconnect a number of Russian banks from the international payment system SWIFT. He stressed that in this way the EU is trying to influence the energy sector of Russia.
