President Volodymyr Zelensky has signed a law on the confiscation of assets whose owners support Russiaʼs aggression against Ukraine, according to the Presidentʼs Office.

This law will allow "quickly and effectively fill the Ukrainian budget at the expense of enemies," and the Ministry of Justice will search for assets of legal entities and individuals, which are defined in the decisions of the National Security and Defense Council.

The property of the "enemies" will be confiscated by the decision of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court (HACC).

  • On April 21, 2021, the Verkhovna Rada voted in favor of the law, but the president returned it with his proposals to parliament for reconsideration in the session hall. After the adoption of the amended law, the head of state signed the document.
