This case was the first one in the country’s history in terms of the borrowing period and the volume of funds raised. It was also the country’s first independent entry into foreign capital markets after the 2014 revolution, without U.S. guarantees as it was in 2014-2016, and without political deals, as in 2013 while receiving the “Yanukovych loan”.
