“London is the financial capital, there is a lot going on in terms of money transactions, exchanges, including money laundering by different countries.

And if this happens, then this, of course, will greatly undermine the authority of London as a financial capital, ”he said, TASS quoted the diplomat as saying.

Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom Liz Truss called for the confiscation of Russian assets frozen by Western countries and their transfer in favor of Ukraine.

To implement the decision on confiscation, according to the British Minister, it will be necessary to adopt a new law or amend the existing provisions of the law.

At the same time, Swiss President Ignazio Cassis recalled that the confiscation of Russian assets in favor of Ukraine would create a dangerous precedent.
