Dmitry Medvedev - Medvedev Says Russia May ‘Nationalize’ Foreign Assets in Response to Western SanctionsAuthorities in Russia may begin to seize funds of foreign nationals and companies that are in the country, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has indicated. His warning comes as the West continues to expend penalties imposed on Moscow over its military invasion of neighboring Ukraine.

The nationalization of Russian-based assets belonging to foreigners and businesses registered in “hostile jurisdictions” is a possible response to the potential seizure of funds of Russian citizens and companies abroad. That’s according to a recent statement by the Deputy Chair of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev on social media.

Following President Putin’s decision to launch a military operation in Ukraine, the United States and European allies introduced a wide range of sanctions on Russia, Russian banks, its political and business elites. On Saturday, Medvedev took to Facebook to comment on the measures that are targeting the members of the council as well.

“Naturally, these wonderful bans won’t change anything… As a reference: my family members and I had no – and have no – either bank accounts or property abroad,” said the high-ranking official who was Russia’s head of state between 2008 and 2012.

Dmitry Medvedev remarked that western leaders are threatening to block the accounts of Russian citizens and companies that are not on the sanctions list and emphasized that Moscow’s response should be symmetrical. He suggested that Russia should freeze the financial funds of foreign citizens and companies or maybe even “nationalize the property of those registered in unfriendly jurisdictions.”
