G7 countries will continue our efforts to ensure that russia pays for the long-term reconstruction of Ukraine. This was stated in a statement by the G7 countries at the summit in Hiroshima on May 19.

"In this context, we welcome the establishment, in the framework of the Council of Europe and to meet the request from the UN General Assembly, of a Registry of Damages Caused by the Aggression of the Russian Federation Against Ukraine", - the statement says.

G7 will continue to take measures available within their domestic frameworks to find, restrain, freeze, seize, and, where appropriate, confiscate or forfeit the assets of those individuals and entities that have been sanctioned in connection with russia’s aggression.

"We reaffirm that, consistent with our respective legal systems, Russia’s sovereign assets in our jurisdictions will remain immobilized until Russia pays for the damage it has caused to Ukraine", - the statement says.

It is worth noting that earlier, Volodymyr Zelensky stated that during the reconstruction of Ukraine, "we will have the maximum of Europe in Europe - the maximum of what is possible based on European values".
