I myself had made statements in support of the idea that these frozen assets should be targeted, but I knew it would be difficult as there were some international law and financial issues. This is also why the European Commission put in place some concrete measures and we made some progress, showing that it was possible to do this with the G7, and with the Americans, to improve our procedures and deliver more money and faster in Ukraine. . Because they really need the money.

Is he concerned that after the agreement reached in the G7, there are countries in the European Union that do not agree?
