MOSCOW, June 15 /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Monday that Russia’s $3-billion-dollar loan to his country was a "bribe" sealed by ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
According to Poroshenko, the whole situation around the money which Russia loaned to Ukraine in 2013 was dubious. He assumed the loan was a bribe that followed immediately after President Viktor Yanukovych had refused to sign as association agreement with the European Union in Vilnius.
"That was a bribe," Poroshenko said Monday in an interview with Bloomberg Television in his office in Kiev. Even so, "Ukraine will demonstrate responsible behavior. This is the responsibility of the Finance Ministry and the government."
We created all the conditions for the government, and the finance minister is supposed to make a responsible decision, Poroshenko said when asked whether Kiev was going to make a payment worth $75 million on June 20.
