image for Over next six months, Ukraine seeks to get part of Russian assets seized by West

In the next six months, Ukraine would like to receive part of the Russian assets seized by the West to launch reconstruction of the country massively affected by Russian aggression.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal spoke about it at a briefing on April 7, Ukrinform reports.

"What’s worth mentioning today is the Fund for Reconstruction of Ukraine.

The first is the seizure of Russian assets in the West and transfer of these funds to Ukraine.

There is simply no single procedure in the world to do this, so we work with each country separately.

But we plan to receive part of these funds in the next six months to start quickly rebuilding our country," said Shmyhal.

Russian troops have been shelling and destroying key infrastructure and residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, rockets, and ballistic missiles. »

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate confirmed Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court on Thursday, shattering a historic barrier by securing her place as the first Black female justice and giving President Joe Biden a bipartisan endorsement for his promised effort to diversify the high court.

Jackson will take her seat when Justice Stephen Breyer retires this summer, solidifying the liberal wing of the 6-3 conservative-dominated court.

While Jackson won’t change the balance, she will secure a legacy on the court for Biden and fulfill his 2020 campaign pledge to nominate the first Black female justice. »
