The first meeting of the Board of the Register of Damages Caused to Ukraine as a Result of Russia's Armed Aggression will be held in December in The Hague. This was announced on Telegram by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal.
Shmyhal, together with officials, representatives of the President's Office, the NBU, and diplomats, held a meeting on the confiscation of Russian assets abroad.
They discussed, among other things, the introduction of international legal mechanisms for compensation for damage caused to Ukraine as a result of Russian aggression.
"This month, the European Commission plans to present a plan to use Russia's frozen sovereign assets to support Ukraine. The US has introduced a bipartisan bill to confiscate the assets of sanctioned Russian oligarchs in favor of Ukraine's recovery. We are actively working with the G7 countries," Shmyhal said.
In addition, the officials heard information from the Ministry of Justice on the launch of the International Register of Damages, established in May within the framework of the Council of Europe.
"The first meeting of the Board of the Register of Damages will be held in December in The Hague," the Prime Minister said.
According to him, active work on the compensation fund, which is part of the International Compensation Mechanism, is also underway.
"Both the assets of Russian oligarchs and the sovereign assets of Russia should be subject to confiscation. The aggressor must bear full responsibility for what he has done. And confiscation of assets is the first step," noted Shmyhal.
