    Russian Deputy Finance Minister said that Russia remains firm on not restructuring Ukraine’s debt of $3 billion.

    TBILISI (Sputnik) – Russia remains firm on not restructuring Ukraine’s debt of $3 billion, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said Thursday.

    “No, we’re not participating in a debt operation. This thing is called a ‘debt operation’ in the program of extended financing, and we don’t participate in debt operations,” Storchak told journalists in Georgia’s capital of Tbilisi.

    Russia has said numerous times that as Ukraine’s official creditor, it has no plans on either restructuring or extending the country’s $3-billion debt.
