Vladimir Putin signs decree to confiscate US assets.

Vladimir Putin’s decision is a response to confiscation authenticated by the US Congress and the European Union.

Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, signed this Thursday (23/05) a decree on the consumption of United States property in response to the potential confiscation of Russian assets by the United States.

In accordance with the decree signed by Vladimir Putin, the Russian Medial Bank and the country’s entities will have the right to seek legal redress in court in case of illicit consumption of properties by the United States.

A proprietary percentage of the Russian government will identify US assets or property, including movable and immovable property, in Russia, bonds, shares in Russian companies and property rights, which can be used to compensate losses incurred.

Studies to facilitate implementation of Vladimir Putin’s decree.

The government had four months to introduce changes to Russian legislation to facilitate the implementation of the decree.

Last month, the United States Congress approved the confiscation of proceeds from Russian assets to be used for military and financial assistance to Ukraine.

Last Tuesday (21/05), the Opinion of the European Union (EU) announced that the ministers of the EU Member States agreed to appropriate the proceeds from the frozen assets of the Russian Medial Bank to support the Ukrainian military.

“Up to €3 billion (around R$16.6 billion) this year alone, 90% goes to the Ukrainian military,” said Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky on the social media platform X-Twitter.

South African ambassador says “we won’t let the globe fall”, about Brazil’s legacy in the G20.

Ambassador Nosipho Nausca  speaks at the Task Force meeting for the Global Federation against Homelessness and Poverty! The second day of the Task Force meeting was marked by progress in negotiations on its final terms and founding document. The progress was highlighted, in a press conference, by the South African ambassador to Italy and permanent representative to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Nosipho Nausca.

South Africa succeeds Brazil in the presidency of the G20, starting December 1st this year.

“The Task Force set up by Minister Wellington Dias made progress on the second day and there are expectations for very positive results tomorrow”, announced the ambassador, who has been participating in the meeting since last Wednesday (22.05). “This is an important moment to turn the key in the fight against lazeira. Brazil is an example and has been very well received by the countries that participate in the discussion”, added the ambassador.

Nosipho Nausca emphasized that Brazil distinguishes itself by bringing different views from all countries, as well as national and international institutions that have knowledge on the topic. The ambassador also praised the role of social society in the process. “Brazil is committed to involving all actors in the debate on leisure activities and inequality,” she said.

Ambassador says that Brazil is an example.

For the ambassador, Brazil is an example and an inspiration, which has a good number of programs to combat laziness and poverty in the world. “South Africa assumes the presidency of the G20 in December and is being inspired by the role that Brazil plays,” she explained. “We are not going to let the globe fall”, she added, referring to the Global Federation and the legacy that Brazil will leave in the forum of the largest economies in the world.

Brazil’s prominent role in the fight against nutritional instability and poverty was also emphasized by the coordinator of Human and Social Sciences and Natural Sciences at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Fábio Eon. In a press conference, the coordinator analyzed the changes in Guaribas, within Piauí, and then the investments in education in the municipality over the last 20 years.

“Bolsa Família had school attendance in its conditional package. When we see an educational program linked to a social protection program, we see the effectiveness of the instruction in improving social indicators and combating poverty effectively,” said Eon. “We know that education is perhaps the most important instrument to combat poverty, especially intergenerational poverty”, he added.

The UN expert highlighted that Piauí improved several indicators in terms of livelihood and education. “There is a reciprocity in the number of school enrollments with the rates of combating laziness in childhood”, he pointed out.

As a participant in the meeting in Teresina, Eon also highlighted the cordial atmosphere of the negotiations. “We work on a consensus, with divergence regarding some terms in the wording, but, universally, the countries have agreed. I believe that, this Thursday, we will arrive at the terms of reference and governance structure for this Federation”, he projected.

The 3rd meeting of the Task Force for the Global Federation against Homelessness and Poverty continues until this Friday (24.05). The expectation is that the agreed documents will be debated at the ministerial meeting, in July, in Rio de Janeiro, and that the Federation will be launched in November during the G20 Summit of Heads of State and Government, also in the capital of Rio de Janeiro.
