Could the use of frozen Russian assets lead to distrust of the West? | DW News

From DW News.

The US and Ukraine have signed a ten-year bilateral security agreement on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Italy. Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the pact would protect not just his country, but the world, from Russian aggression. G7 leaders also backed a multi-billion dollar deal to use the interest from frozen Russian assets to help Ukraine strengthen its defenses and pay for reconstruction.

For more about the latest at the G7 and this 50 billion dollar loan to Ukraine, we talk to Claudia Schmucker. She is the Head of the Center for Geopolitics, Geoeconomics and Technology at the German Council on Foreign Relations.

And we speak with our Chief Political Correspondent Nina Haase, who is in Bari at the summit for us.
