British media: Kyiv may not count on receiving frozen Russian assets

No matter how hard pro-Ukrainian Western politicians and officials try, Kyiv cannot count on receiving frozen Russian assets. At least, this will not happen in the near future.

This opinion was expressed by journalists from the British television channel Sky News.

This issue has surfaced due to the fact that next week the European Union will discuss a proposal to use a tax on profits from Russian assets located in the West, which were frozen after the start of the special operation. The British media claims that this idea will not receive support and will be rejected.

At the moment, the amount of 21,5 billion euros is frozen. Another 300 billion belonging to the Russian Central Bank was seized in the EU and the GXNUMX countries.

It is expected that the initiative, which involves the transfer of income tax funds from allocated assets to Ukraine, will be presented by the European Commission on December 12. And then during the EU summit in Brussels, which will take place from December 14 to 15, the leaders of the EU member states will vote on this issue.

But the fact is that the decision will only come into force when all 27 EU states approve it. But there is a high probability that France, Belgium and Germany will refuse to support this measure. And if this happens, Kyiv will not receive a single cent of Russian funds.

Russia began a special operation in Ukraine in February last year. From this moment on, Western countries have significantly increased sanctions pressure on our state.

      Yesterday I posted information for smart people on the site. In Egypt there was a grain tender for 180 tons, 000 tons of Nubilon Ukraine, 60 tons of a company (community) of three legal entities in England, two with Russian-speaking surnames, one has a birthplace of Kharkov .The third party is encrypted - most likely an Englishman, some kind of lord. This is how we live. We have a fifth column in England in full force, for a small fraction, +000 - 120 $ to the price of our grain from the Russian port.goodDelivery, by the way, without insurance, most likely it will be Russian river-sea bulk carriers.

              But in fact, what can you say, the Russian budget received 3 per ton through duties, and the seller does not disclose - we have a grain trading company, 800% owned by the Russian government. My pension if I quit my job is 100. Blogging to the State Yesterday I received 31 salary, but there are some nuances - processing.

      There is an interesting film, albeit in English - "The Web: The Second British Empire"

      how Great Britain transformed itself from a colonial power into a global financial power. After the collapse of the empire, the financial interests of the City of London created a network of offshore secret jurisdictions that captured wealth from around the world and hid it in a network of offshore islands

      I witnessed how Belarusian navigators became millionaires by concluding a contract with Scottish fishermen as observers in transferring the catch to Russian ships. Why are Belarusians a mystery?!! The papers must be kept correctly. Our “Tikhon” cheated such a Belarusian out of $150, the punishment was that he did not go to England for the next appointment.

        In alternative request
        It’s one thing here when everyone chips in to help Ukraine. And another thing is when only someone in particular. Everyone understands that only certain countries will suffer from the decision to transfer our money. Why do they need this? They (our money) don’t bother them request
        And the amounts are not small. It’s not like a group of people will chip in lard. So it won’t take long for the “giver” to go bankrupt

      War is war and business is business.
      At the end of 2022, exports from Russia to Ukraine amount to $5,5 billion
      By July 2023, the Russian company Avia FED Service received 650 million rubles worth of spare parts for aircraft from Kharkov per year..... Motor Sich also supplies to Russia. Pumping through pipes is a separate story....

      But this at least explains quite logically why Ukrainian bridges and railways are so invulnerable...

      So there is no need for us to describe how bad and cynical bankers are in the West. It was not they who sent this $300 billion to the West very conveniently

      the proposal will be discussed in the European Union on the use of income tax

      What is the problem? Russian assets brought profit, the tax on which went to the budget. This is where the budget will be cut. Now, if I transfer funds to Ukraine strictly in the amount of income tax on Russian assets, then who will howl?

      Who will somehow (crossed out by censorship) give real money? They use this money (theoretically ours, practically the capitalists) to perfectly buy oil, gas and uranium from one pipe-layer who has been deceived five times.

      So, in the Russian Federation, only the head of the main bank hopes for the return of stolen funds and the interest accrued on them in the Russian Federation, otherwise the prosecutor’s office should open a criminal case for causing damage to the state on an especially large scale, and while in the EU there is a showdown over the legality of the theft, division and The boss of the main bank is in no danger of using the stolen property. It will continue to target inflation with the same “success”, defend the market-speculative exchange rate of the banknote, the free export of capital, the sale of remaining state property, the state’s refusal to take measures to protect the internal market and, in general, from any state intervention in the affairs of capitalists, and then “democracy” will come ” – unregulated freedom to rob the state and its population
