Kiev will demand that Russia pay at least $1 trillion for Crimea and Donbas, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Thursday.
"We have two key cases and these two legal cases concern both Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the intervention in Donetsk and Luhansk," Yatsenyuk said, adding that the first case is worth over $1 trillion and the final sum of damages will be announced during the consideration of the case.
Ukraine’s banks and other companies will sue Russia "in all the courts," he said.
According to Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin is surprised by Ukraine’s plans to demand Russia pay at least $1 trillion for Crimea and Donbas.
"Crimea is the territory of Russia. Donbas is the territory of Ukraine. What is this $1 trillion about? It is not clear," Peskov told TASS.
