The Duma proposed to freeze the property of American citizens
Moscow, February 4 – In response to the confiscation of the assets of the Russian businessman Konstantin Malofeev in the United States, the property of American legal entities and individuals should be frozen, State Duma deputy Nikolai Novichkov (SRZP) believes.
Earlier, CNN reported, citing US Attorney General Merrick Garland and his Ukrainian counterpart, Andrei Kostin, that the US had transferred more than $5 million to Ukraine, which had been confiscated from Malofeev. This is the first time that US authorities have seized Russian assets under sanctions, and the first time that money has been sent to help Ukraine.
“It is necessary to freeze all property of American individuals and legal entities. I will nationalize part of the assets at the moment,” Novichkov told the News Agency.
In his opinion, the frozen assets of Russian citizens abroad should also be declared state assets – this will allow them to be protected as a “national treasure”.
“All private assets that have been frozen abroad, our citizens must be nationalized, that is, declared state property,” he said.
