It is noted that the US, which previously did not publicly support confiscation, told allies that it had found a way to withdraw the funds “in accordance with international law.”

“Members of the G7 may seize Russian sovereign assets as countermeasures to encourage Russia to end its aggression,” said a US document circulated to G7 committees.

According to the authors of the document, the invasion of the Russian Federation into Ukraine means that confiscation of assets can become “a legal countermeasure of those states that have suffered as particularly violated by Russian violations of international rights.”

In the United States, it is believed that the possibility of seizing the assets of Russian companies may be discussed by the leaders of the G7 countries during their meeting, scheduled for February 24, 2024.
