The Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk has commissioned the Cabinet of Ministers to ready a legal position aimed to protect the national interests of Ukraine in the process of distribution of funds and property of the former USSR.

Arsenii Yatseniuk raised this issue during the Cabinet of Ministers session on Sunday, March 16.

He reminded Ukraine had in fact completed distribution of the property in the framework of the Soviet Union: “Ukraine has legitimate and lawful claims against the Russian Federation concerning the property which Russia has retained illegally”.

“I request to immediately take measures targeting to prepare the legal position in which we will protect the national interests of Ukraine in the process of distribution of funds and property of the former Soviet Union,” Arsenii Yatseniuk emphasized.

It should be noted the Verkhovna Rada has never agreed to the so-called “zero variant” with Russia (it concerns the Agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on the succession of the external debt and assets of the former USSR).
