MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. Russia’s Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev said Ukraine may not pay off its debt to Russia, he said at the "Russia Calling!" forum on Tuesday.
"Announcements made by Ukraine’s authorities prompt this thought," he said.
Earlier Ukraine’s Finance Minister Natalia Yaresko said Kiev does not intend to provide Russia with more favorable terms of redemption of $3 bln worth of Eurobonds.
In late September, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said Russia had not received any invitation from Kiev to attend creditors’ meeting on October 14. "We haven’t received an invitation. Ukraine sent its restructuring offers to trade creditors, including Russia. We’re saying that we do not belong to this group of creditors. This kind of issues is always solved bilaterally," the minister said. Siluanov added that Russia expects payment in full discharge by Ukraine in December, on Wednesday.
Latest coupon payments were made by Ukraine in June this year.
