Canada urges G7 to provide financial aid to Ukraine using seized Russian assets


Canada is urging G7 nations to provide financial aid to Ukraine by using seized Russian assets.

Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland has been leading efforts to encourage G7 finance ministers to adopt the plan, which was discussed during the recent three-day G7 finance ministers’ meeting in Italy.

G7 leaders, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, are expected to finalize plans to provide financial assistance to Ukraine during their upcoming meeting in Italy early next month.

  1. Why does Ukraine need $50 Billion!!??.. oh to launder back to politicians! Air brain Freeland is such an embarrassment to Canada! Huggy kissy so business like! Canada desperately needs new leadership!
    G7 another holiday on taxpayers expense!

  2. Talking like the pretensious bully that she is… wait until we are ditched by Nato for our derelection of duty on defense spending, then Russia knocks and we'd fold like a leaf.

  3. You can secretly steal a can of beer from a liquor store, but you can't steal assets from the Russians. You can spend Russian money without their consent, but they will never acknowledge it and will simply record it as your debt. Sooner or later, they will come for their money and take it with interest.

  4. Yeah did you know Canada's trees Absorb more than our CO2 and carbon emissions produced by our country almost double… So why are we paying a carbon tax…. Just for other countries that are true polluters for us to pay for. If Trudeau wants this country strong and free stop bringing in every one from other countries here! I just seen a bunch on east Indians running through a police barrier saying this is their country now and calling our police a bunch of whiteies and some words I can't say on here.

  5. ?Psalms 105 Oh seed of Abraham, His servant, O sons of Jacob ( Israel ), His chosen ones! He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. He has remembered His covenant forever, The word which He commanded to a thousand generations, The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac. Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan As the portion of your inheritance,”

    Process that!
    Bless Israel and stay blessed.
    Curse Israel and stay cursed.
    Genesis 12
    Stay blessed
    Joel 3 " Many in the valley of decision."

  6. No! Freeze, don't seize. Seize it post-war, for reconstruction. During the war, aid can be funded without it. Mark my words, right now Russia would make extremely effective prop a ga nd a hay out of its seizure by the West. Terrible idea.
    Ukraine, '22: "I need ammunition, not a ride." Now: "I need ammunition, not cash."

  7. Dr,Robert strange of novascotia says LOCK IT DOWN THAT Russians money causes the spread of covid 19! Old dr strang says we have covid all around us and now is the time for all novascotia including 1 week old to wear a mask at all times or face 1 million dollar fines that's why he is novascotia TOP DOCTOR

  8. Forget about the Ukraine!!! Zelensky SHOULD HAVE been beefing up his military & anticipated that Russia would try to take back the Ukraine. No longer Canada’s problem —- focus on Canadians!!

  9. Do not comply with the lies .Stop funding Iranians . Money funneling wake up America Canada …One nation under God …. UNITED WE STAND.The USA and the world Need to have a united prayer. This fight is a spiritual one. Our Defense is God how it works is through prayer. Simple . Let’s do it . July 4, 2024. All day long . Just like Jericho. They Marched. Followed Jehovah Gods orders. Jericho fell. These are the times God talked about in the Bible. We must fight the enemy together. Through the word , the word is Jesus Christ and praying using his name. God bless The USA. Hallelujah Amen . Pass it on prayer 7-4-2024 all day United. It can happen. God is just waiting for his body of Christ to unite.

  10. So where is all the money Ukraine took from all the countries including Canada. Zelenskyy bought houses and boats? Something is not right with Freelands idea. That money should be given back to countries that gave Ukraine money. Taxpayers want their money back. Either she pays us back from her bank account or wherever but we want our money back!!’

  11. Go ahead sieze Western Assets in Russia. Take all 1 million dollars of them. News flash, world billionaires dont move to Russia. They live in LA and hangout with Jeff Bezos. No Western Billionaires have assets they care about in Russia
