“Ukraine still has not received an official proposal of debt restructuring from the Russian Federation”, - announced Artem Shevaliov, Deputy Finance Minister of Ukraine, reported ‘Interfax-Ukraina’.
"We have not received the offer from Russian side in official way. At this point we have no comments on the state debt" - he said.
On November 16 Putin said that Russia is ready for Ukraine to pay the debt of $3 billion from 2016 to 2018.
According to the Russian leader, Moscow admits that Kiev will not pay the debt in December 2015, as it was planned earlier, but the Ukrainian side will have to pay $1 billion in the next three years. Moreover, western partners have to present financial guarantees of such payments to Russia.
Later it became known that the Finance Ministry has not received the proposal of Ukrainian debt restructuring from the Russian side, announced by President Putin.
