US will seize Russian assets to finance Ukraine reconstruction, says Blinken

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated that the US intends to use seized Russian assets to finance the reconstruction of Ukraine.

“Our Congress gave us the power to seize Russian assets in the United States. We intend to use it”, highlighted the diplomat during a speech at the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, in Ukraine.

“What Putin destroyed, Russia should and must pay to rebuild,” he added.

Blinken said the US is working with other G7 countries to do the same with “Russia’s immobilized sovereign assets.”

“The G7 can unlock billions of dollars and send a powerful message to Putin that time is not on his side,” he pondered.

Blinken's comments come after a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which the American diplomat reiterated the “U.S. commitment to Ukraine's recovery,” according to U.S. State Department spokesman Matthew Miller.
