Ukraine’s Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko has called on Japan to transfer Russia’s frozen assets to Kyiv.

Report informs that Marchenko, in an interview with the Japanese newspaper Nikkey, said that the Ukrainian authorities are already “sending a signal to Japan” that these funds be directed to the restoration of Ukraine. In his opinion, the Kremlin should “pay the price of restoring” Ukraine.
