IMF changes the rules: not every debt needs to be repaid now

At the end of October, the American business newspaper The Wall Street Jornal, citing its sources in the International Monetary Fund, said that the IMF was ready to rewrite its own credit rules for the sake of Ukraine. The final decision of the Fund’s Board of Governors will be taken at the end of November after the G-20 Summit, which will be held in the middle of this month in Antalya, Turkey.




US Senate dictates terms to international financial center

The reservation about the “final decision” is rather a tribute to political politeness so as not to embarrass an authoritative meeting of the heads of the major world powers, which today is the G-20 summit. It will certainly discuss the role of the IMF in the global economy and the rules by which the work of this major financial center is built.

In recent years, the IMF theme has been rising at all the G20 summits. The leaders of the leading world powers are worried that this, in fact, the financial institution of the United Nations, is actually governed by the United States and its allies. The world has changed. The economies of developing countries have grown up. Significant was their contribution to the commodity basket of the planet, political weight. However, the conditions for managing the International Monetary Fund have not changed.

At the dawn of the creation of this financial center, the principle was laid down - for the approval of the decisions of the Fund, 85% of the votes of its participants are needed. At the same time, the share in 17% of all votes belongs to the USA. It is not enough for an independent decision, but you can block any initiative that Americans will not like.

This was taken seriously at the 2010 summit of the year in Seoul, South Korea. It was even decided to increase the share of developing countries in the capital of the IMF to 42,29%. Implement it failed. Sharply "against" were American legislators, and everything remained the same. Is that the Chinese allowed to raise the proportion from 2,94 to 6,394%. However, this had little effect on the situation. As before, it is in the power of the US Senate to adopt any bill that bans the International Monetary Fund from allocating loans to objectionable American countries or, on the contrary, encourages particularly obedient ones.

It is not by chance that the Minister of Finance of Russia Anton Siluanov did not really believe in the reservation about the final decision and sharply criticized the emerging decision. Here it is necessary to clarify: in the rules of the International Monetary Fund there is a ban on issuing loans to countries that have delayed a debt to official creditors: IMF member states. For many, it is obvious that Ukraine in December will not be able to pay Russia 3 billion dollars and, most likely, will default on Russian bonds.

To resolve this conflict, Vladimir Putin offered the IMF to give Ukraine a loan to pay off its debt to Russia. Such an approach categorically did not suit the Americans. There are several reasons. Home, of course, in the openly hostile attitude of the United States towards Russia. They are still entertaining themselves with the thought of "tearing our economy to shreds." Such an approach does not imply reciprocal steps. You can not discount the ambitions of "exclusivity", which recently absorbed the Americans along with heels. How can you once again not demonstrate that they control the IMF, and not Russia with its miserable 2,74% of votes!

American politicians actively intervened in history with the debt of Ukraine to Russia. For example, Senator Chris Murphy (member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee) openly stated: “The international community must understand the need for us to take the appropriate steps that will give Ukraine the legal basis to avoid paying this debt.” In an interview with Sputnik, Murphy publicly promised to find a way to legally formalize Ukraine’s refusal to pay Russia's debt.

Apparently, in America they consider: “To promise is not to marry.” It seems that something went wrong with a legal justification. As reported by RIA "News":" The Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced that it would hold a briefing behind closed doors with the International Monetary Fund's Executive Director, Christine Lagarde, at which Ukraine’s debt situation will be discussed. "

There was or was not this briefing - it was left behind the scenes, but the position of the IMF suddenly sharply corrected. The fund decided to change the rules for lending to sovereign borrowers and to exclude a ban on the allocation of funds to countries that have delayed the payment of official debt and defaulted.

A solution that can be fatal

Minister Siluanov called such a decision hasty. The head of the Ministry of Finance noted that “Russia does not want Ukraine to remain without financial support in a difficult situation” and at the same time expressed concern that “changes in the fund’s policy are being forced in the context of the very politicized issue of restructuring Ukrainian debt” "). In other words, the international financial organization is going to change the general rules for one specific situation and abandon the principles that the IMF member states are focused on.

At first glance, this has already happened with the foundation. It is enough to remember Greece. Its economy has seriously reeled during the 2008-2009 crisis. There was a threat of Greece leaving the euro zone. At the first stage, loans from the European Union helped. Then the IMF joined. Later, in 2013, the fund acknowledged that they had made major mistakes and miscalculations when providing financial assistance to Greece.

In particular, during the period of granting loans, the Greek economy did not meet most of the criteria for IMF (three out of four), compliance with which is a prerequisite for receiving financial assistance. Greece had high government spending, high external debts, a budget deficit and a balance of payments deficit. However, for Europe, the European Union, which has almost a third vote in the IMF; the question was resolved without large delays.

The difference with the Ukrainian case here is that for the aid of Greece they did not change the rules and principles of the fund, but simply did not pay attention to the inconsistency of the country's requests with the terms of crediting. With Ukraine, it was also. A year ago, the President of Russia spoke about this: “We are interested in providing economic assistance to Ukraine, including assistance from the IMF. At the same time, and I would like to pay special attention to this, the practice of the foundation’s work is such that it does not provide financial support to a belligerent country. ”

The foundation ignored criticism of Vladimir Putin. The true truth here is that a belligerent country, as a rule, spends loans not to stabilize the country's economy (what the International Monetary Fund is intended to do), but to finance hostilities. Repayment of debt while not exactly guaranteed.

One gets the impression that the IMF does not expect to return the loans, which the United States and its allies, who in total have almost half of the votes for the decision-making fund, asked him to issue. The same Greece, for example, accumulated debt in 315 billion euros is obliged to return after the 2022 year. But already 30 June 2015 of the year was not able to pay the IMF the current loan payment in the amount of 1,6 billion euros.

Greeks, of course, scolded. They were already financed in exchange for the actual transfer of the country under "external control" to creditors. This time, the Greek payment essentially provided a new fund loan.

Ukraine also has no money for debt repayment. On September 22, she refused to pay $ 500 million on coupon obligations for Eurobonds. The lenders then gave her ten days to think, and on October 4, the Standing Committee of the International Association of Swaps and Derivatives (ISDA) at its meeting decided to recognize the technical default of Ukraine.

The word “technical” in this case means the hope of creditors that Ukraine will nevertheless fulfill this coupon obligation when it has an opportunity. However, specialists of the international rating agency Standard & Poor's were less optimistic. They suggested that “even if Ukraine defaults, it will not be a catastrophe for the Ukrainian economy, because the IMF is likely to close its eyes and continue financing a four-year assistance program involving lending to Ukraine in the amount of 17,5 billion.”

Reality surpassed analysts' expectations from Standard & Poor's. The IMF decided not only to turn a blind eye to the possible default of Ukraine, but also to rewrite its fundamental rules for it. This December, they, like the International Monetary Fund itself, will be exactly 70 years old. Now, according to fund managers, not every debt is subject to mandatory execution. At least, it is a debt to those creditors who do not make tea today with the Americans and their allies.

Such selectivity is not an invention of the IMF. For years now, Americans have been introducing their right to the international community in a strong, exclusive right. They are used to bombing cities and countries without UN Security Council sanctions. Now the turn has reached financial structures. American dictates can be detrimental to the International Monetary Fund. After all, its competitors are now starting to operate - the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, the BRICS Bank. These international financial institutions are built on equity and partnership. Behind them the future.

... It may happen that an ill-conceived decision on a selective approach to sovereign debt will be the drop that will completely destroy the reputation of the International Monetary Fund, which is still the leading financial institution of the United Nations.

    The Governing Council also includes a representative of the Russian Federation and other states, I would be very interested to see who and what voted for this Council ... I have no doubts that this Council will take the decision necessary for the USA, but there is also no doubt that for The IMF will be a step towards the abyss and that Russia and other countries will begin to more vigorously develop other international financial structures

      Why are they there, in the IMF, completely stunned? Because of such a trifle as Ukraine, because of such a ridiculous amount of “popsicle” (on the scale of the IMF, of course), they are breaking the system thanks to which they successfully robbed the whole world for 70 years, simultaneously fulfilling the most important instructions of the US State Department on the collapse of either another state? If you can not give them away, but send them to the address with a sweet smile, then they will give anyway, but how to ruin the country? Well, everyone wants to, like Ukraine-took, plundered, "but there is no money ..." They are completely tired of everything in America, is it, the whole world is in ruins? In foreign policy, they are confidently advancing in the war with Russia. In the internal, to dictatorship and separatism. In finance - the usual Mavrodievschina. In the economy - dependence on China. And here they themselves are ruining their very successful instrument of international banditry.

    A purely American practical approach. When it is advantageous for them, and especially combined with damage to Russia, they are ready to do anything, even to change the rules they have established. This is not just a country parasite on the body of the Earth, it is a country leading the world to complete chaos. But will there be a place for the United States in the chaos they created?

      But no, if they don’t pay, then they will set a precedent by which they all stop paying each other and then a system in which at one person endless resources begin to burst at the seams, those who are sitting on infinite resources cannot afford it, because live in conditions of limited resources do not know how and can not.

      This, Dear Alexei, is not so obvious. The loan was issued through the purchase of Eurobonds, so that litigation will be long and persistent, and the decision of the European court will most likely be in our favor. Another question: how will Ukraine comply with the court decision and whether at all.
      But in any case, a colleague, we have a chance to return our money, though taking into account the political situation, it’s not a high one.

          Andrei, well, you yourself understand that the decision of the court will be God knows when, maybe then the situation in the world will change in some way. It’s hard, colleague, to think so far. And today, at Politnavigator, again, Yaytsenyukh staged a show about our debt. This, after all, is saying the same thing, which means there are some levers of pressure on Ukraine from our side, since they do not wait patiently for the loan agreement to expire. Well, something like that, colleague. hi

        Moreover, the debts must be taken now, while the regime at the helm in Ukraine is hostile for us, then there will be no sense. The United States seems to me to reckon on this, now Ukraine does not repay debts not only to us, but also deferred other debts, while taking from the IMF .In this regard, it becomes viable for an indefinite period of time. During this time, it further breaks economic (cultural silence) ties with Russia, sets its citizens hostile to us, plunges into economic, political, structural chaos and grows into overwhelming debts. Then the junta will be overthrown and forces will come, most likely pro-Russian, or neutral to us. And please, take away Russia’s last money from friendly Ukraine. In order to later abandon debts, you will essentially have to re-arrange Ukraine, and it’s better to separate Western Ukraine and hold them accountable, although this will be very hindered and at first the state will be an outcast in the West.

        And I don’t really understand why, because of such a trifle ($ 3 billion), the USA is very strong! undermine the IMF's reputation. This also suggests that they do not count on the long existence of the current regime of Ukraine, otherwise they would give money to pay off our loan, I feel sorry for their real money.

    If I am not mistaken, then there is no question of debts. We are talking about changing part of the rules that do not allow providing assistance to countries debtors in default. Or not?

      Which will inevitably lead not only to the external political governance of Ukraine (which is actually happening now), but to the external economic one, which the IMF lending rules were originally created. Amer is greatly hindered by the very presence of such international, that is, not completely controlled by them organizations, like the UN. Therefore, they are trying on all sides, both political (military actions without UN Security Council sanction, the abolition of the veto right) and economic (discrediting and collapsing the IMF and incentives to stabilize the economies of debtor countries) eliminate all instruments of any control (even its visibility) over themselves .

        Let me disagree with you, Dear Andrey. There is already a precedent, it is Greece, according to the rules, it did not have the opportunity in its socio-economic status to receive the next tranche of the IMF, but under pressure from the EU, the IMF continued to fund Greek "reforms." Regarding Ukraine, Laggart has already unofficially recognized the possibility of continued funding after the moratorium on payments to Russia.
        Some possibility of solving the problem in your presentation exists, in anticipation of a meeting of 20 in Antalya, but experts are sure that the United States will still push the IMF to change the rules to the detriment of Russia.
        Something like that, colleague. hi

Cohland as a state is not wealthy and in the end most of it will return to the hand of Moscow. Here is the opinion of one of the smartest people who have ever lived. I suggest not need ...
              “Even the most successful outcome of the war will never lead to the disintegration of Russia, which rests on the millions of Russian believers in the Greek denomination. The latter, even if they are separated by international treaties, will reunite with each other as quickly as they find their way to each other by disconnected mercury droplets.
              This indestructible State of the Russian nation is strong in its climate, its spaces and its unpretentiousness, as well as through the awareness of the need to permanently protect its borders.
              This State, even after a complete defeat, will remain our creature, an adversary seeking revenge, as we have in the case of today's France in the West. This would create for the future a situation of constant tension, which we will be forced to assume, if Russia decides to attack us or Austria. But I am not ready to accept this responsibility, and to be the initiator of creating this situation by ourselves.

      If I am not mistaken, then there is no question of debts. We are talking about changing part of the rules that do not allow providing assistance to countries debtors in default. Or not? Those. they’re just getting ready for Ukraine to default so that they can lend to them after that. Correct if I am mistaken ...


      Yes, practically so, Dear Oleg, only a small clarification. According to the fundamental documents of the IMF, naturally for this case, financial assistance to the recipient country ceases if it does not fulfill its obligations under state obligations, that is, in this case, Ukraine declares a moratorium on payment of financial resources taken to us on credit. That is, to some extent, default is a secondary issue, because it comes after the announcement of a moratorium on state obligations.
      Damn it, I read it and I got it wrong. I wrote it. In short, in Russian - If Ukraine does not return the money to us, the IMF should stop helping it, according to its own rules. But since the IMF "lies" under the Americans, they plan to change the rules and continue to give money to Ukraine. In this case, the procedure for declaring default by and large is just a statement of the fact of insolvency.

      Somehow it happened, Dear colleague. hi At least I tried. yes

    A double edged sword. So other countries will refuse to pay debts. And the end of the IMF

      In this case, those countries that stop paying will very quickly find out why the US military budget is the largest in the world.

    the states occupied the clearing and drew their rules of the game. And whose rules, that is the gain. They lay straws for themselves. Their debt is not frail. Suddenly, who dares to ask for a refund. I am solely grateful to our 90s for losing our illusions about the states and their friends.

    America allows Ukraine not to pay the debts of Russia. Enchanting. The theater of the absurd is simple. Russia must also be allowed to not pay America's debts. Anarchy is the mother of order.

    For some in the world, 70 is a magic number, after which everything needs to be changed. That is, to destroy the old and create a new one - so they change the world. Examples: the UN, the IMF, and finally the USSR ... And many more things change every seventy years, we just don’t notice it. People work ... Or INHUMAN?

    And you have not noticed yet, the West always begins to change the rules if it is locked, or to make exceptions to the established rules. And this is not suddenly, from the Middle Ages, remember Shakespeare's play "The Merchant of Venice", where the European court instead of obliging the merchant to pay his debts with a Jew, on the contrary made the Jew (through loopholes in the law) give half his fortune! So gentlemen in the "lace trousers" will always find an exception to the rules, as if we ourselves would not end up in debtors!))) To prevent the West from changing the rules at our discretion, we must establish these rules ourselves!

    Stavte immediately minuses, but it was precisely the inaction of Russia that led and still does not know where it will lead Ukraine to, and how the consequence will affect (but already affect) Russia and this is only the beginning

    What is the secret meaning of financing Ukraine before its collapse? Now neither Ukraine nor money. They fed the oligarchs again. We have not been able to repair the federal road for many years now, the condition is like after the bombing, and here money is in the pipe. Pests!

    And why does the site write about finances? I’ll understand the theme of the site is different, namely WAR and military equipment ... Just don’t say that it’s like that, it’s also a war, only economic. I want to read about Syria, watch a video about the war in different parts of the world) watch how the militants decapitate igil, but here about finances ...

    It finally became clear that the leadership of the mattresses put their project (mattress) under the knife. As always in such cases, the result is unpredictable. Let's wait and see. wink

    About what the editor was told about what he writes, because they will trample if he does not listen. I’ll tell you honestly she’s already tired of many.

    Conclusion - no need to play with cheaters and according to their rules. Let them have fun.
    You need to create your game according to generally understood rules and play it.
