France, Germany and the European Central Bank expressed concern about the possible seizure of frozen Russian assets. Representatives reported this on the sidelines of a meeting of the heads of the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of the G20 countries.

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov noted that the Russian side will respond symmetrically to attempts to transfer frozen assets to Ukraine. The danger for the West also lies in the fact that the withdrawal of assets will push other countries not to hold reserves in Western currencies.
