Ambassador: US may arrest Russian assets over Skripal case

MOSCOW, Mar 29 (PRIME) -- Russian assets in the U.S. can be arrested over MoscowТs alleged involvement in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the U.K., U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman told RBC TV channel on Thursday.

He also said he hoped that Russia and the U.S. will be able to stabilize their relations.

On Monday, the U.K. issued a warrant for the arrest of the Russian assets of dubious origin.

Vladimir Dzhabarov, deputy chairman of the Federation CouncilТs committee for international affairs, said that international investors will massively leave the U.S. in case of arrest of Russian assets.

УIf this happens, international investors will be massively leaving the U.S., first of all (investors) from China and other countries. This will be a clear signal that it is not safe to invest in the U.S. economy, private capital is not protected there, by any law,Ф Dzhabarov said.
