ST.PETERSBURG, June 18. /TASS/. Russia was not surprised by the claims to the country’s property in Belgium and will challenge them, Russian Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said in an interview with the RBC TV channel on Thursday.
"This is a predicted measure and we have seen such risks earlier. The decision of the Stockholm arbitration court gives grounds to countries for taking these actions," Ulyukayev said.
The minister said he has no information on the particular assets concerned.
"Of course, we will assert our position and will seek to cancel these measures," Ulyukayev said.
