MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. Moscow will look for ways to protect its international assets that are being encroached upon by other countries, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"The adoption of such decisions <...> will be another step in violating all the rules and norms of international law. Of course, we will look for ways to fight this," he stressed, commenting on the looming scheme of transferring Russia’s frozen international assets to Ukraine.
The Kremlin official stressed that a lot of Moscow's assets, including gold and foreign exchange reserves, have been actually stolen by the countries of the collective West.
"These are totally illegal actions. They run counter to international law. This is nothing more than encroachment on property, in this case, state property and private property. This destroys the foundations for the system of economic relations which exists in the world," he stated.
Peskov also spotlighted the fact that Western countries deprived entrepreneurs from Russia of the right to challenge such decisions in court. According to him, this means that "any room for maneuver is very, very limited." "But this does not mean that we will sit idly by," the spokesman assured.
