US Treasury Secretary: Russia must pay to rebuild Ukraine after war

The government of the United States believes that the Russian Federation, which is waging a war of conquest against our country, must pay to restore damaged infrastructure.

Washington is discussing with allies how to circumvent legal restrictions on the use of Russia’s frozen assets for this purpose, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told CNN.

That’s a responsibility that I think the global community expects Russia to bear. This is something we’re discussing with our partners, but there are legal constraints on what we can do with frozen Russian assets.
