Rebuilding Ukraine following the devastation caused by the Russian invasion will cost an estimated $349 billion, according to a report issued Friday.
But the figure, which totals 1.5 times the size of the Ukrainian economy, is considered a minimum and is expected to grow in the coming months as the war continues, according to the joint assessment by the government of Ukraine, the European Commission, and the World Bank.
It has been reported that it would cost 349 billion to reconstruct Ukraine as it was before. I heard that the U.S. possess around 300 billion in frozen Russian asset, and I was wondering if the U.S. had the legal means to use that fund "illegally" and use it to finance the reconstruction of Ukraine? Is there a legal precedent for doing something similar?
