The country has blocked Russian financial transactions worth 191 billion euros.

"The Treasury has frozen Russian assets worth 58 billion euros. We are talking about the largest amount among the EU member states", - the head of the Belgian Finance Ministry Vincent Van Petegem said in a statement.

In mid-February, it was reported that Bern announced the blocking of $8.1 billion of Russian assets. Moreover, Credit Suisse could block funds under the sanctions of other countries.

The total amount of assets of the Bank of Russia frozen by the EU countries was estimated at $258 billion on February 10. Moreover, $36.4 billion was lost. According to the document that was prepared for European leaders for the summit with the participation of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, the EU cannot find this amount to transfer to Kiev.
