Josep Borrell: Ukraine must be rebuilt after the war from confiscated Russian property

According to the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the United States has also done so in Afghanistan to use the money seized by the Afghan central bank for the victims of terrorism, as would be the case in Ukraine.

Ukraine, which had been seized from Russia by sanctions, should be rebuilt from the assets that Russia has seized with sanctions, Josep Borrell, the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, told hvg.hu.

Borrell argued that the U.S. had previously used sums seized from the Afghan central bank to help victims of terrorism.

We have the money in our pockets, someone explains why you can do it with Afghan money and why not with the Russian? ”

Borrell asked. Although the idea has come up before, the European Union has not yet come up with a concrete proposal in this regard.
