"We will declare a moratorium on the payment of debt, and we will not service the loan", - declared the prime minister.
“Ukraine cannot treat Russia in a different way than other international creditors,” he added.
“We offer Russia the same conditions. The deadline for reaching an agreement is October 29, ”Yatsenyuk noted.
He again called the loan “a bribe from Russia” received by Yanukovych “for refusing to sign an association agreement with the EU”.
Prior to this, Yatsenyuk declared Kiev’s readiness to defend its rights to restructure debt in court, calling this process a “legal war.”
Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov reported that Russia does not intend to accept the conditions of Kiev for debt restructuring.
