The countries of the European Union cannot come to agreement on the best use of funds received from frozen Russian assets to support Ukraine. At the same time, EU leaders have agreed to work on a plan that will allow them to use these funds.

The goal is to direct the funds to an EU-run fund to purchase weapons for Ukraine. There is a divergence in the methods of using assets.

Belgium and the US propose issuing bonds to mobilize money and generate a larger amount. France and Germany, as well as other member states, oppose this idea.

Recall that the EU has frozen a significant amount of Russian assets, including securities and cash amounting to about 190 billion euros, located in Belgium.< /p>
