MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Venezuela has not yet made another payment on its $3 bln debt to Russia that was due to be made in March, Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said on Monday.

"The payment will be made, probably, (we) will inform," he said.

Earlier Deputy Minister did not rule out problems with public debt management, though previously Venezuela never missed payments.

At the end of March, crisis-shaken Venezuela was expected to pay over $100 mln on its debt to Russia. In early April, Russia’s First Deputy Minister, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that Caracas had the right to transfer the payment within a month.

In November 2017, Moscow and Caracas signed an intergovernmental protocol on restructuring Venezuela’s debt to Russia amounting to $3.15 bln, which stipulates full repayment within a ten-year period and minimal payments in first six years.
