Russia ready to retaliate if West seizes its assets — MFA


Russia is ready to retaliate proportionately in the event that its assets are seized in the West, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

She made the statement at a news conference when commenting on a US bill that aims to allow seizure of Russian assets.

“I would also like to reiterate that the eventual seizure of our sovereign reserves is fraught with detrimental consequences for the financial and investment domains of the countries that would take this step, contrary to the warnings from sober-minded experts,” she said. “The Russian side is not interested in the situation developing this way, but is ready for any options, including those providing for adequate responses to any unfriendly actions.”
