(MENAFN) Canadian Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland claimed Canada might be passing a law permitting the seizure of sanctioned Russian money.
“We hope that budget legislation will be adopted in the coming days. For the first time for Canada, it includes measures that will allow the confiscation of frozen and sanctioned assets,” Freeland told journalists. She declared that the problem has been already negotiated with the United States and other allies.
“It's very important to find funds to rebuild Ukraine. And I can't think of a better source of that funding than confiscated Russian assets,” she added.
