German Development Minister Svenja Schulze has called for a mechanism to force Russia to contribute to Ukraine’s reconstruction costs.

“At the moment, there is no international law to make such a thing possible,” Ms Schulze told German broadcaster RTL/ntv ahead of a conference on the topic in Berlin. “I will find it very sensible if Russia were also called in.”

Ms Schulze said it was not yet possible to say the exact figure the reconstruction would cost.

“There is now talk of unbelievable sums, but in reality, no one can yet say exactly how much money will be needed because it will also depend on how much more is destroyed, unfortunately,” she added.
