MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin has called Ukraine’s threat to nationalize Russian property a psychological attack .
“In my opinion, this proposal and the sanctions that are much talked about, all this is an attempt by the Ukrainian authorities and Western politicians to hush up their responsibility for unleashing and spurring this acute crisis that we regretfully witness in Ukraine,” Naryshkin said.
Earlier, Ukrainian Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko said losses from nationalization of Ukrainian state property in Crimea could be compensated through Russian Federation’s property in Ukraine and abroad.
“As for statements about nationalization of state property in Crimea and natural resources of the Black Sea shelf, we officially state that if the Russian Federation recognizes these moves by the Crimean authorities, Ukraine reserves the right to apply adequate measures to compensate for these losses with Russian Federation’s property in Ukraine as well as in other countries,” Petrenko said.
“We will do it in strict compliance with international and national legislation,” he added. Specifying what property could be involved, he said “Russian Gazprom has a lot of facilities in Europe”.
