Venezuela made another calculation on the debt to Russia in rubles. The Ministry of Finance explained that they provide a similar opportunity to all debtors.
According to Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak, quoted by RBC, it was the choice of the official Caracas.
“We have such a right and this opportunity we provide to all debtors. It is their choice,” he said.
The total tranche equivalent amounted to about $ 200 million. It is not known in which assets Venezuela paid the debt. According to the publication, the Bolivarian Republic can no longer pay non-cash dollars due to US sanctions. It was previously assumed that Caracas would pay the tranche with oil or gold.
As Ruposters previously reported, US President Donald Trump, speaking at the UN General Assembly, promised to end the policy of endless wars. At the same time, he called socialism the main threat, mentioning Venezuela.
