“Moscow has consistently advocated against any modification of the rules of allocation of new tranches for specific situations, under the immediate kind of political situation, what it is, in fact, in the case of Ukraine”, – said Peskov, reports RIA Novosti.

Note that the IMF needs to consider extension of financial assistance to Ukraine tomorrow.

Experts are sure that Ukraine will receive the IMF tranche, despite the position of Russia

In February, Russia submitted to Ukraine a lawsuit in London’s High court, demanding the return of $ 3 billion and the interest on $ 75 million.

In December 2013 Moscow bought sovereign Eurobonds Ukraine, and the line of credit was to be $ 15 billion. However, until the coup in 2014, Kiev managed to get only one tranche of 3 billion.
