LONDON, February 18. /TASS/. The High Court of London registered Russia’s action against Ukraine filed because of $3 bln debt, the Court told TASS on Thursday.
"The claim was filed in the Financial List [the disputes trial system — TASS] on the 17th February," a Court’s representative said. "Names of parties are: The Law Debenture Trust Corporation PLC versus Ukraine represented by the Minister of Finance of Ukraine acting upon the instructions of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine," the source added.
