Ukraine will demand at least $300 billion in reparations from Russia.
This was stated by the Minister of Justice of Ukraine Denys Malyuska to the media group Funke, Deutsche Welle reports.
According to the Minister of Justice, at the UN General Assembly, Kyiv is going to achieve the adoption of a resolution on which the creation of an international mechanism for compensation for damages caused by Russia should be based.
