    17 Countries Owe Russia $27Bln – Reports

    Seventeen countries owe Russia a total of $27 billion, with most of the country’s lending made through arms deals or unreported political loans, according to a tally by Russia’s RBC news website.

    The Finance Ministry estimated this year that 25 countries and other legal entities owe Russia $39.4 billion, including through government bonds. Russia classifies data from its export finance and loans program as a state secret.

    Belarus remains the runaway leader among Russia’s debtors with $7.5 billion in unpaid loans, according to RBC’s calculations published Monday. Russia declined Belarus’ request to refinance its debts this summer.

    Ukraine is Russia’s second-largest debtor, with $3.7 billion owed to its eastern neighbor.

    Venezuela owes Russia $3.5 billion, RBC reported. Cuba has borrowed $3.2 billion from Russia, followed by Bangladesh with $2 billion, Cyprus with $1.8 billion, India with $1.1 billion and Yemen with $1 billion.

    China, Morocco and foreign state corporations may owe Russia a further $13 billion, RBC reported. The outlet was unable to identify the specific amounts borrowed by each party, as China and Morocco don’t disclose their bilateral creditors and Russian government statistics don’t include loans to foreign state corporations.

    RBC’s tally did not include foreign government bonds issued by countries such as the U.S. and Britain that are held by Russia.

    Also because it would not be a loan, but money given for free without anything in return, just the promise of not selling yet themselves to the Americans in exchange for a bright future (ukraine way)...

    As I wrote before in the russia bielorussia thread, they want their independence, but want Moscow to pay for everything...

    If they want independence, they need to act like a sensible allied nation with an economy not based on what can be stolen from Russia.


    Otherwise they just need to pay taxes to Russia, and being managed as a series of west russian oblasts... in this case Money could be invested in their economy, the same way it is invested, according to needs and priorities, to other russian oblasts and republics

    I think after 5 years of Western utopia in Ukraine, few Belarussians have any delusions about what it will look like. Plus Belarus has never had those 10-15% of fiercely nationalistic population that could infect the rest of the country.

    In case Us & Co try to repeat another Maidan, we'll see Russian troops in Belarus, Crimea-style. If Russia could learn from America's errors, so it can learn from its own.
