The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation is considering the possibility of exchanging the assets of Russian investors frozen abroad for foreign assets available in the Russian Federation. This was stated by the Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov in an interview Naile Askerzade on the TV channel “Russia-24”.
“In principle, it is theoretically possible, on the one hand. On the other hand, here we need to adopt a number of legislative decisions that would allow us to use the frozen funds of already foreign investors that are frozen here in the Russian Federation to pay for those assets that are frozen abroad. Difficult situation here. There are also such initiatives. But they are under consideration. I would say that it is at the initial stage of consideration,” Siluanov said.
