The Belgian Ministry of Finance reported that the total value of Russian assets frozen in the country as part of anti-Russian sanctions amounted to 58 billion euros.

And the ministry indicated in a statement on Monday that it had also blocked “Russian-related financial transactions” worth 191 billion euros.

On February 25, the European Union announced its tenth round of sanctions against Russia in connection with its military operation in Ukraine.

The European Union has obliged banks to report to the national authorities of member states and the European Commission information about frozen Russian assets in order to study the possibility of their confiscation and subsequent transfer to Ukraine.
