Siluanov: freezing Russian assets is an ill-calculated step by the West. He emphasized that these decisions will be followed by a symmetrical response from Russia.

Moscow, according to Siluanov, “has something to answer.” Earlier, French Minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire said there was no legal basis for the seizure of Russian assets. “If this happens, it will all collapse. And this will cause more damage to Western companies than to the Russian Federation,” he said.
