The EU has managed to freeze €13.8 billion worth of funds from Russian oligarchs and entities subject to EU sanctions, EU Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders said Tuesday ahead of a meeting of EU justice ministers in Prague.

It’s quite huge. But a very large part, more than €12 billion, comes from five member states so we need to continue to convince others to do the same,” the commissioner said.

He added that he expects a final political agreement after the summer on a new legal instrument that would make violating or attempting to circumvent sanctions a criminal offence everywhere in the EU.

The assets were frozen as part of the ‘Freeze and Seize’ Task Force, set up by the European Commission in March.
