Germany ready to use revenues from frozen Russian assets for Ukraine aid, ministry sources told Reuters

Germany is open to utilizing revenues from frozen Russian assets to support Ukraine’s war efforts, according to Reuters, referring to German Finance Ministry sources. The US aims to get G7 agreement next week on forwarding interest earnings from the $300 billion in frozen Russian assets to provide funds for Ukraine.

Reuters says one German source stated they are “certainly prepared” to use a legally viable mechanism to access financial flows from the frozen assets for Ukraine’s benefit. However, Germany remains reserved about directly using the frozen assets themselves, emphasizing the importance of respecting international laws like state immunity.

A Finance Ministry spokesperson confirmed the focus is on using income from the frozen assets, not the assets themselves, to preserve fundamental principles of international law. The Ukrainian finance minister will attend the upcoming G7 meeting on this matter.
