Zelensky calls for the confiscation of Russian assets to compensate for the damage suffered
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday offered his allies a multilateral agreement to obtain compensation from Russia for the damage caused by its forces during the war.

“We invite our partners to sign a multilateral agreement and create a mechanism to ensure that anyone who has suffered from Russia’s acts can receive compensation for all losses suffered”he said in a video address.
According to the agreement proposed by the Ukrainian president, Russian funds and property in the signatory countries would be confiscated, they would then be directed to a special compensation fund.
“That would be fair. And Russia would feel the weight of every missile, every bomb, every shell it fired at us.”did he declare.
