Russia does not intend to give up trying to return its gold and foreign exchange reserves, which were frozen in foreign banks. This was announced on Monday, October 31, by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, writes “Economy Today”.
“Considering that we are talking about an international act of theft, a violation of everything and everything, all international rules and laws,” Peskov added.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that “hope dies last.”
The EU has previously stated that frozen foreign exchange reserves of Russia in the amount of €300 billion can be kept as a guarantee until the Russian Federation begins the voluntary restoration of Ukraine. In March, the head of the RF Ministry of Finance announced that the West froze about half country’s foreign exchange reserves. However, the department expected that they would become available to the Central Bank as a result of negotiations.
