“We at the NBU remain supporters of a consolidated response from the international society, not violating international law, which leading legal schools have identified the concept of countermeasures, this opens up the possibility of access to the most immobilized assets.

At the same time, we see that the discussion has now revived around another option, also debt-based: when these immobilized assets are considered as collateral for the corresponding loan . There are other options that provide that Ukraine should be able to attract a loan against future income that these immobilized assets generate,” said the head of the NBU.

Pyshny also said that for each option you need political and legal will. At the same time, he noted that, first of all, to open access to Russian assets for Ukraine, political will is needed, and legal reasons for attracting Russian assets already exist.
