Gli investitori stranieri non dovrebbero cooperare con l’Ucraina visto che non ha pagato 3 miliardi di dollari di debito a Mosca. Lo ha detto il vice ministro delle Finanze russo Sergey Storchak. “È difficile pensare che qualcuno possa acquistare i loro titoli di debito”, ha detto Storchak ai giornalisti osservando che l’Ucraina dovrebbe lavorare sul finanziamento dei programmi economici esistenti.

Foreign investors are not likely to cooperate with Ukraine amid Kiev’s unpaid $3-billion principal debt to Moscow, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak said Tuesday. “It happens amid Ukraine’s claims to return to financial markets as a sovereign borrower … Amid an unfinished process and growth of investors’ distrust to the economic course … It is difficult to assume that someone would buy their debt securities,” Storchak told reporters. Storchak noted that Ukraine should work on funding the existing economic programs. In 2013, Russia granted a $3-billion Eurobond loan to Ukraine, which was secured by former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s government. Moscow has repeatedly stated that Ukraine’s failure to pay back the debt by December 20, 2015 should be classified as a default, while Ukraine claimed it as part of an external commercial loan. Russia filed a lawsuit against Ukraine over the issue.
