The Siluanov said that with the new government of Ukraine headed by Volodymyr Groisman, the dialogue has not yet formed.
In March this year, the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine said that Kiev will demand the rejection of all claims due to refusal to pay a 3-billion debt of Russia.
About the same time the representative of IMF has noted that when deciding on the allocation of funds, the Fund will take into account the integrity of Kiev in the settlement of dispute on debts to Moscow.
At the end of 2013, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and the then head of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych came to an agreement that Moscow will give Kiev a loan of $ 15 billion through the placement of Ukrainian securities.
Before the coup in Ukraine, Russia managed to allocate the first tranche of $ 3 billion. Currently Kiev refuses to meet its obligations, insisting that it is private and not sovereign debt. The IMF reiterated Moscow’s position that the debt is the state.Related posts:
