EU countries have announced the freezing of a total of 23 billion euros in assets of the Central Bank of Russia.
Axar.az informs this was reported by Reuters.
Didier Reynders, the European Commissioner for Legal Affairs, said that less than a tenth of these frozen assets was in the EU.
According to him, about 23 billion euros have been frozen in the EU since the start of the war in Ukraine in February, which is many times less than the 100 billion dollars frozen in the United States.
In addition, EU countries have frozen assets worth 10 billion euros, such as yachts and villas, allegedly linked to Russian oligarchs and officials.
Most European countries have reportedly been cautious about imposing sanctions, with some even refusing to speak openly about freezing Russia's assets.
