The law enforcement authorities of France arrested the accounts of Russian companies in the French "daughter" of the VTB bank yesterday, June 17. It was announced by CEO of VTB Andrey Kostin.
It is reported that initially the accounts of Russian diplomatic missions were arrested too. Later, the diplomatic accounts were unblocked.
"By the morning they (the accounts of diplomatic missions – Ed.) were deblocked, but such a problem existed. The sums are small, amounting to tens of thousands of euros. The accounts of the diplomatic missions were once deblocked, the accounts of Russian companies were frozen. We are solving this problem with lawyers," Kostin said.
As reported, on June 17, Belgium seized the state assets of Russia in this state.
