The Czech government has moved to freeze all Russian state assets in the Czech Republic, Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said in a Twitter post on Nov. 15.
"At my suggestion, the government today approved the freezing of Russian state assets in the Czech Republic," said Lipavsky.
“The commercial activities from which Russia finances the murder of Ukrainians ends here.”
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has stated that his country, together with the European Union, is assessing legal authority to direct $300 billion in frozen Russian assets toward rebuilding Ukraine and other needs.
On Oct. 11, Belgian PM Alexander De Croo held a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, during which he announced plans to create a special fund to support Ukraine, amounting to EUR 1.7 billion this year.
Funds for this initiative will come from frozen Russian assets in Belgium. Zelenskyy noted that Belgium would be the first country to use Russian assets to support Ukraine.
