Russia has not a single fact at hand to freeze Iraqi accounts at Russian banks, Russian Vice-Premier and Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin has said. Asked by reporters to comment of the United States' appeal to all countries to freeze Iraqi bank accounts, he said that Washington has not given Russia any official information of such accounts being used for financing terrorism or money laundering.
