Bloomberg: The German government is discussing the terms of the transfer of Russian assets to Ukraine

The German authorities support the demand of the Kyiv regime to transfer Russian assets blocked in the West to them, but they are ready to do this only if other EU countries do the same.


According to Bloomberg news agency, citing sources in the German government, German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock insists that EU authorities should consider at least partial confiscation of frozen Russian assets.

However, the country's Ministry of Finance was wary of this idea. German Finance Minister Christian Lindner fears that such action would set a dangerous precedent that could put the EU in legal trouble.

EU authorities are trying to find relatively "legitimate ways" to use the blocked Russian funds, but one trial on possible confiscation may take several years, which completely deprives this initiative of practical sense.

The German government supports Ukraine's demand for Russian reparations, but has not reached any clear consensus on the possibility of confiscation of frozen Russian assets.

Interestingly, on the other hand, Germany has already faced demands for the payment of reparations: another important member of NATO and the European Union, Poland, is demanding money from Berlin. Warsaw wants to receive compensation from Germany for the damage caused to Poland during World War II.

      No one was going to give them anything for a day. They want to compensate themselves for at least part of the money poured into the economy of Ukraine, and it is possible (so far, in theory) to do this only at the expense of Russia. And so far they have not done this only because of the fear of blowing up the remnants of the system of international law, of which, after the actions of the United States, there is already so little left. If they blow it up, they will create a precedent, and then chaos will begin. So while you want and prick.

      They will pass it on. Will definitely pass on.
      And our task is not even to return these three hundred lards (it’s useless, not for this reason Europe stole our money so brazenly and openly in order to give it back), but to blow this case so that the last owner of the basket weaving workshop in Mozambique realized that with Europe you can’t have affairs, that at any moment, at your own request, you will be “thrown” for real or invented sins.

      Until relatively recently, there was an expression "reliable, like in a Swiss bank." The trick of Switzerland was the preservation of banking secrecy and accountability to no one but the client. Where is that token now?
      And the 300 lard stolen and spent at one's own discretion is a HUGE nail in the coffin of European business reputation.
      Only now ours should not be silent, as usual ("and we have a lot of it"), but inflate this matter to incredible proportions. Let in words, but so that the whole world knows how to deal with Europe.

          In Ukraine, we "have spent" only 100 billion, and paid 200 billion in advance. For such money the program promises to be interesting!

            Amazing. 300 billion dollars were stolen from us without declaring war. Just once and goodbye Russia is not your money. Lithuania only allowed Taiwan to open an embassy, ​​not Taipei, but Taiwan, China severed diplomatic relations with them and crossed the country off the list of the living.
            We, as if nothing had happened, continue to trade, and the prices for our goods are dictated to us. Explanations We have concluded agreements, we must fulfill them. And to stop all these supplies of oil, gas, grain, fertilizers, ammonia for one reason, you robbed us, return the stolen goods. But the sacred cow is business.

    There are much more German assets in Russia than there are Russian assets in Germany.
    The principle of reciprocity in international relations has not been canceled.
    Are the Germans ready to lose everything in Russia?

    Apparently, someone there still read Bismarck:
    Do not expect that once you take advantage of Russia's weakness, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come - do not rely on the Jesuit agreements you signed, supposedly justifying you. They are not worth the paper they are written on. Therefore, it is worth either playing honestly with the Russians, or not playing at all.“

    This is not a carrot for the forelocks - this is a carrot for our financially illiterate elite, so that everything is done within the framework of the plan invented by the CIA and the mi6 for the defeat and collapse of the Russian Federation.

      If the top of Russia would be financially illiterate (in your opinion), then the SBU would not charge the head of the Central Bank of Russia, Elvira Nabiullina, with the fact that she "participated in the financing of the Russian military and the military-industrial complex."

    Well, let them confiscate it, it will be necessary to immediately write it down on account of the debt of the Federal Republic of Germany and put it on the counter at 1% per day. By the way, are the German gas storages well protected? Is one quadcopter with an 82mm mine enough?

      What does let mean? Criminal article - appropriation of property. And they will start to dispose of money - theft. The UK initiates a criminal case and ALL those who made decisions are subject to detention and criminal prosecution. Who will carry out the detention Interpol, the GRU special forces, the FSB ....... it does not matter. All thieves on the international wanted list. hi

    Their politicians don't think so far (and don't think at all). They were given a directive from the Washington regional committee - to pump up Svinland, so they are happy to try. The only problem is that the subcutaneous financial fat in Germany is already melting, and at a rapid pace, so the local elites have a question: where to get the loot to carry out the instructions? Of course, there is only one option left: if not to be left with a bare bottom and at the same time fulfill the task of the Party (more precisely, two parties - Democrats and Republicans), it would be necessary to steal Russian money.
    Fearfully, the consequences are also uncalculable, but everything is heading towards this, because the Germans have no other options (besides, the Party has already "friendly", affectionately, blew up the Northern Streams so that they would not dare to give back).

    You know, I would LIKE Germany to give the gruntoids all their weapons in general (this one fig will not help them).
    Then Poland would have forgotten about the Vskhodni Kresy for a moment and would have expanded its Lebensraum at the expense of the Germans. At the same time, and from the position of the winner, she would have shaken off her trillion three hundred from the burghers. Oh, what a mess in the EU brewed! ^_^

      Such valuable specialists are needed in their original and unclouded form. laughing It does not seem to have dawned on her that the entire EU will have to pay for the commitments made. After all, Ukraine will not turn this money into a nest egg. As in a joke about two thumping heads of the snake Gorynych. lol

    In this case, Germany will not sit behind the back of the EU with their legal problems, NATO and the United States - they will have to answer specifically and realistically, outside the "legal field", before Russia. Is the German government ready to repeat the "feat" of the Second World War?

      Russians always come for their money.

      The Russians don't have to go anywhere. Over the past year, 10 trillion rubles have already been printed. More will be printed this year. And despite this, there is an industrial deflation (-1,9%). What allows Russia to produce money if not in itself, to conduct SVO on them and not pay for it? Export inflation? lol If the Germans monetize their debt to Russia and transfer the money to Ukraine, they will get even more inflation in the EU. Communicating vessels.
