The European Union recognized the impossibility of confiscation of the "frozen" assets of the Bank of Russia

The EU authorities noted that they really cannot confiscate those assets of the Central Bank of Russia that were previously frozen. This is prevented by the principle of state immunity, writes The Wall Street Journal.


Currently, the European Commission is proposing to the EU member states to form a special fund that would manage liquid assets. Profits from asset exploitation could be set aside and invested in rebuilding the Ukrainian state, European officials say. Most likely, at the same time, by restoration they actually mean the continuation of hostilities with the further ruin of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, it is impressive that for a long time both in Ukraine and in the European Union there were talks about the confiscation of Russian assets. It turns out that in fact the West was going to reject even the elementary principles of international law for the sake of the “Ukrainian project”. From this moment alone, one can already imagine how significant the Kyiv regime is for the "collective West" - of course, not in itself, but in the context of its confrontation with the Russian state.

As for any illegal means of taking Russian assets, the West should also remember the significant ownership of European and, to a lesser extent, American companies in the Russian Federation. After all, it can also be, if not nationalized, then exploited in order to alienate profits in favor of the Russian Federation and pay the costs of conducting a special military operation.

So far, the withdrawal of more than 300 billion dollars of Russian assets is probably not being decided due to the fact that as soon as this happens, Western exchanges may face a significant outflow of investment capital. Indeed, in a number of countries they are already thinking: if the West freezes and prepares to confiscate Russia's assets, then sooner or later it may come to their own reserves under American or European jurisdiction.

        I think so too. Let the saliva swallow so as not to choke and prepare for the fact that someday they will have to return this money with interest and payment of lost profits for the period when Russia could not use it. Their history teaches nothing. No.

      Well, the fact that they themselves, through their stupidity, drove themselves into a dead end and stubbornly sit there, is a fact.
      That is, everything they expected from an absolutely incorrect assessment and analytics turned out to be completely wrong.
      It was not possible to crush Russia quickly. To destroy the economy, arrange a coup and bring in a pleasing power, defeat Russia on the battlefield, NOTHING came of it. Moreover, they themselves got such problems that mom do not grieve.
      And now they do not know what to do and stupidly go along the same track.
      They are preparing a stupid ninth package of sanctions.
      Instead of reversing, admit that they messed up, and start taking care of their economy and the lives of their citizens.
      But it's easy to get into a rut, it's hard to get out of it.
      Yes, and the mind is not enough and the stubbornness of a donkey through the roof.
      In general, Europe is heading towards collapse. Finally, this is what they need for Russophobia, Nazism, for all their crimes and meanness.

    This is the money of the party, therefore, they do not dare in vain.
    If it were Russian money, then they would work for Russia.
    All according to Lenin - they rob the loot.

    These "assets" have already been stolen and do not exist, because the gas for which this money was paid has already been sold to the population and burned.

    If this money is “confiscated” and spent, the effect will be tantamount to issuing the same amount and kicking inflation in such a good way.

    In response, you can print dollars that are indistinguishable from the original ones and scatter them in the EU and around the world, completely destroying confidence in the dollar and their monetary system ... The United States will not be able to cancel cash dollars, this will be the collapse of the world system.

    > The European Commission invites EU Member States
    > create a special fund that would manage
    > liquid assets

    As I understand it, they want - our 300 billion dollars
    invest in this fund, as a result => receiving a profit from this:
    ($300 billion) * 0.02 = ($6 billion per year),
    which is ($0.5 billion per month) - for the war in Ukraine.

    PS. But I think that - they will not succeed with this: the Americans are already twisting this money. They are fools or something: to give this profit to someone.

    After all, there were voices upstairs - such voices - to take this money into account in expenses ... I think they don’t do it - so as not to give this money to the amers, because then it turns out that they are no longer ours.

    Russia must take every precaution and countermeasure to get back what is theirs. And you can do it in several ways. I am sure that this can cause economic damage to the West or hostile countries in a thousand possible ways. There are viruses in laboratories, there are companies to arrest, there is environmental damage, there are undersea cables, there is an endless possibility of damage.

    Americans (during 2 years of the pandemic) - printed 5.9 trillion dollars, so another 300 billion is bullshit: 5.08% (or 37 days of spending in a pandemic).

    Yeah. And before that, they recognized the impossibility of supplying heavy weapons to the Chewbaccas, and before that, the impossibility of freezing Russian assets, and before that, the impossibility of disconnecting Russian banks from SWIFT, and before that, the impossibility of refusing to cooperate with Russia on international security ...

    Assets are a double-edged weapon. In Russia, an approximately equal amount of investments in shares of individuals, investment and pension funds. So far, even under sanctions, we manage to pay dividends, though most often in rubles, and if it is impossible to transfer them, then we accumulate them on special shareholders' accounts. And it is possible, in response to unfriendly actions of unfriendly countries, to confiscate the property (including shares) of residents from these countries. For example, the Toyota and Ford factories seem to be mothballed, but in principle, who will prevent the Russian Federation from declaring them state. property, and then sell it to the same China, Iran, regional authorities or our entrepreneurs. For the time being, we are doing decently with those leaving: we allow the sale of enterprises or local management or local shareholders for a good price (as was the case with McDonald's). And finally, the external debts of the Russian Federation: we have state. the debt is about 56 billion dollars, the debts of enterprises and individuals are 5 times more. Imagine that in response to the confiscation of our assets, we stop paying them our debts.

    OK then. Let's assume that the Europeans and Americans will not confiscate the frozen funds. But the question remains: what will happen to them (the funds) then? What is their future fate? How long will they be frozen and when will Russia be able to access them? And further. What will happen to private capital? Is his collective West going to confiscate? Or will it "keep" it indefinitely?

    It turns out that the West is evil, but is it difficult even for evil to break its rules?
    Not ready to simply annul Russia's ownership of funds placed in the West?
    These damned capitalists are now acting more honestly than our financiers, placing Russia's reserves in the economies of countries that have long been considered potential adversaries.
