Russian oligarchs must pay the price for the conflict in Ukraine, the co-sponsors of a Senate bill say

(RT) A bill that would allow the use of Russian assets seized by Washington to fund aid to Ukrainian refugees and the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine is being introduced in the US Senate.

The RELIEF (Repurposing Elite Luxuries Into Emergency Funds) for Ukraine Act is being proposed by Colorado’s Democratic senator, Michael Bennet, and his Republican counterpart Rob Portman, of Ohio, the website Axios reported on Tuesday.

The legislation calls for Russian assets seized by the Department of Justice’s newly created Task Force KleptoCapture to be turned into a relief fund for Ukraine that would be managed by the State Department.
