Arseniy Yatsenyuk asked United States and Europe to freeze assets of Russian oligarchs

Yatsenyuk said that Ukraine should freeze the Russian assets and finances, as long as Russia does not withdraw its troops and military equipment from our territory.

According to the Prime Minister, these preventive measures should curb Russian aggression towards Ukraine. He stated it on Thursday, during the signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the World Congress of Ukrainians in Kiev.

Yatsenyuk is convinced that the sanctions did not bring any result. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen measures on freezing the Russian assets and to stop all banking transactions of the Russian Federation in the EU member states, the United States, and the G7 countries.

It is to be recalled, August 28 in Kyiv there will be held a signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Cooperation between the Government of Ukraine and the Ukrainian World Congress.
