    Russia to Decide on Gas Discount for Ukraine by End of March

    Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that the country will decide by the end of March on the possibility of a gas price discount for Ukraine in the amount of customs duty.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — Russia will decide by the end of March on the possibility of a gas price discount for Ukraine in the amount of customs duty, Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Friday.

    "Russia could consider the possibility of gas discount in the amount of customs duty by the end of march if either Ukraine or the European Commission officially ask for it," Novak told reporters at a joint news conference following trilateral gas talks in Brussels.

    Novak added that the discount could cover deliveries in second quarter of 2015, and would be reviewed every subsequent quarter due to price volatility on global markets.

    The current gas discount for Ukraine under the so-called 'winter package' is valid until April 1.

    Earlier in the day, Novak said the price of the Russian gas for Ukraine in the second quarter of 2015 could be set at $348 per 1,000 cubic meters, not counting the discount.

    The current price is $329 per 1,000 cubic meters that is about $100 below the market price.

    However, Ukraine still hopes for further reduction in Russian gas price.

    Energy Minister also noted that Russia plans to reinstate the take-or-pay clause for gas deliveries to Ukraine starting on April 1.

    "The Russian side believes that starting on April 1 the take-or-pay clause will be reinstated, due to the fact that the sides are in arbitration court and take-or-pay clause will be litigated in line with 2009 contract," Novak said.

    The Russian energy minister added that despite the return to the take-or-pay clause, Kiev will continue to make prepayments for Russian gas deliveries.

    Novak assured European gas buyers these changes will not affect Russian natural gas transits through Ukraine. This East European country is currently the main route for Russian gas deliveries to Europe, which meet about 30 percent of the region's gas demand.

    In fall 2014, Russia agreed to refrain from using the contractual take-or-pay provision for the time of the peak winter season under an agreement, dubbed "winter package." The clause stipulates that Kiev either buys Russian gas at an agreed price or pays a penalty.

    A prepayment scheme has been in place for Ukraine since June 2014 after Kiev defaulted on its vast debt for previous gas deliveries.

    Cut them off and see how the puppies are burking, if they want to steal gas then they have no right to have gas, period. If we wouldn't live in nuclear arsenal times, countries would just bomb the shit out of countries that steal and warmonger on behalf of others. Not to mention sanctions are an act of war per definition.

    Ukraine should repay $3 billion debt to Russia out of IMF’s aid — Putin

    The Russian Finance Ministry’s press office said the IMF’s aid program for Ukraine envisaged the disbursement of three tranches worth a total of $5.1 billion until the end of this year

    NOVO-OGARYOVO, July 15. /TASS/. Ukraine should use financial aid from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to repay its $3 billion debt to Russia, President Vladimir Putin said at a government meeting on Wednesday.

    "About $5 billion [Ukraine is expected to receive as financial assistance] until the end of the year," Finance Minister Anton Siluanov told the government meeting.

    "Of this amount, $3 billion should be given to us," Putin said.

    The Russian Finance Ministry’s press office said the IMF’s aid program for Ukraine envisaged the disbursement of three tranches worth a total of $5.1 billion until the end of this year.

    The first $1.66 billion tranche was not disbursed, although the IMF’s financial aid program stipulated its transfer to Ukraine until June 15.

    Possibly, the volume of the IMF’s aid to Ukraine will be adjusted to equal slightly over $3 billion. Nevertheless, Russia’s expects Kiev to repay its debt, the Finance Ministry’s press office said.

    Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak said earlier Russia expected Ukraine to pay $75 million on its Eurobonds on June 22 and would regard any failure to make the payment as "a default event." However, Ukraine made this payment on schedule.

    The Ukrainian financial authorities have stated on many occasions they consider Kiev’s debt to Russia as commercial liabilities and insist on debt restructuring.

    However, Russia considers this debt as Kiev’s state liabilities and demands its full repayment in December 2015.

    Ukraine currently has to restructure debts worth about $15 billion, of which $3 billion is its debt to Russia.

    IMF says Ukraine’s $3 billion bonds sold to Russia should be treated as Kiev’s official debt

    The International Monetary Fund has formed a preliminary view that Ukraine’s $3 billion bonds sold to Russia should be treated as official rather than private debt, news agency Bloomberg reported late in June, citing a source familiar with the matter.

    Treating the $3 billion bonds as official debt would exclude them from the bond restructuring Ukraine is negotiating with a creditor group led by Franklin Templeton, placing a greater burden on private bondholders, Bloomberg said.

    At the same time, this status of the bonds still has to be approved by the IMF’s executive board.

    Russia has repeatedly said the bonds it purchased from Ukraine should be treated as official aid and repaid in full when they mature in December while Ukraine argues the debt was structured as Eurobonds under UK law and is subject to the same treatment as private creditors, Bloomberg reported.

    Ukraine’s external debt hit $72.9 billion as of late 2014 while its internal debt stood at $29 billion and its gold and foreign currency reserves were less than $10 billion.

    Russia made a decision in late 2013 to invest up to $15 billion in Ukraine’s sovereign Eurobonds. Soon afterwards, Russia bought Ukraine’s first Eurobond tranche worth $3 billion with a two-year maturity and a coupon rate of 5% per annum and coupon payments every six months.

    Russia subsequently decided against investing the other $12 billion in Ukraine’s bonds.

    Despite Tensions, Ukrainian Aerospace Chiefs Come to Moscow Airshow

    Despite political tensions and a Ukrainian ban on most technological exports to Russia, Ukraine's aerospace industry still participated in the MAKS-2015 air show on an unofficial basis, business daily Vedomosti reported.

    The head of engine manufacturer Motor Sich, Vyacheslav Boguslayev was present at the airshow, where the company's Russian branch was featured at a stand. Ukraine's other major aerospace manufacturer, Antonov, was not present at the air show, although its executives were seen attending, sources told the newspaper.

    Ukraine Calls on Russia to Agree With Debt Restructuring Proposals

    In order to receive the full amount of the loaned money, Russia must accept Ukraine's debt restructuring proposals, country's Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — Russia must agree with Ukraine's debt restructuring proposals or demand refunds from those who loaned the money and fled the country, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Friday.

    "Russia is not a member of the creditors' committee, and yesterday it stated that it wishes to receive the full amount of money. I can offer them a public advice. Those who took the money were granted political asylum in Russia. They should summon the bandits they sheltered and demand money from them, or return them here, and we will gladly hold proceedings on each of those who received money and plundered the funds of the Ukrainian state," Yatsenyuk told reporters.

    "I again call on Russia to accept our offer, as there will be no better offers for Russia," he added.

    Russia holds Ukrainian $3-billion Eurobonds due to mature by the end of 2015. The Ukrainian legislature passed a law earlier this year allowing the government to miss payments to international creditors.

    Yatsenyuk’s stance echoed his refusal on Thursday to grant better terms to Russia if it does not join the international creditor committee led by New York-based Franklin Templeton Investments fund, which holds an estimated $7 billion in Ukrainian bonds.

    Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said Moscow would insist that Kiev pay off its debt to Russia in full by December, after Ukraine announced that it had agreed with the committee to restructure $18 billion its debt and write off nearly $4 billion worth of Eurobonds.

    Russia won’t write off Ukraine’s debt, will demand payment full — finance minister

    Three billion dollars that we have granted from the National Welfare Fund should be returned to Russia by the end of this year


    MOSCOW, September 7. / TASS /. Ukraine should pay its debt to Russia in full, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Monday.

    Moscow will not join the club of the creditors who decided to write off part of Kiev’s debt.

    "Russia’s debt is a sovereign one. As for sovereign debts there is a special procedure to settle such cases. We will not enter into negotiations with the Ukrainian government on this matter,"Siluanov said.

    According to the finance minister, Russia has repeatedly stated its stance on this issue.

    "We believe that sovereign debts should be paid in full at the appropriate time. Three billion dollars that we have granted from the National Welfare Fund should be returned to Russia by the end of this year. We have the funds on infrastructure and important project for Russia We really need the money, especially in the present circumstances, when the availability of Russian companies in the international financial markets is limited. Therefore, we will demand that our colleagues and partners should return the full amount of the debt in compliance with the schedule," Siluanov said.

    That is because they got actually no other form of evidence of their success nor do they have anything original to do but look like morons. But if I was Putin, I would ask them: "And what accomplishments were gained from your illegal overthrow of Yanukovich? A shattered economy, war on the east, lost Crimea (and the crimeans are happy to be gone) and welfare recipients from the IMF". I am pretty certain after that, they would go cry themselves to sleep and blame him later on.

    Irrepairable. Ukraine will never join NATO because of disputed territory Crimea. US military bases will pop up all over Ukraine. Ukrainians will be brainwashed by Ukrainian state media to hate Russians forever. In about 100 years no Ukrainian will be able to speak Russian. Anyone who speaks Russian in Ukraine will be beaten to a bloody pulp by Right Sector.

    It'll be like between North Korea and South Korea, only a lot worse.

    Maybe. And the Ukrainians will just enjoy living like the North Koreans, as their economy is probably worst now than what North Koreans are.

    GOOD.

    Two Ukrainian airlines will fall under Russia's retaliatory measures immediately after Moscow gets the official confirmation of Kiev’s decision to close its airspace to Russian commercial airlines flying to Ukraine, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said Saturday.
