Good for France! – it seems to have focused minds in Washington and Moscow last week!
It is now most reassuring that the USA and Russia have kept their hailing frequencies open and are at least responding to each other!
On Friday October 21st, the US and Russian Defence Ministers had a phone call with each other.
This is not going to end well for certain parties because what we are witnessing is a foreclosure action by the Russians on the Ukraine’s debt owed to the Russian central bank. The Ukraine’s excuse for withholding up to $3 billion in Russian debt after the deadline past is a flimsy excuse at best when then Ukranian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk claimed Kiev would impose “a moratorium” on paying back the debt since Moscow would not agree to restructuring, and then he proclaimed, “Ukraine won’t pay debt to Russia if Moscow refuses restructuring.” That was on November 13, 2015.
Let us go back a few years in Ukraine’s history under President Porochenko’s rule, who according to reliable sources was illegally put into office after the 2014 Maidan Massacre. Once in office President Porochenko began to refuse to pay private-sector bondholders, and also to not repay the Ukraine’s legal, and overdue debt of 3 billion rubles to Russia’s Sovereign Wealth Fund unless Russia re-negotiated the payment details. Russia went to international court, won its legal battle, and received a court order that ordered the Ukraine to repay that debt.
Later in 2015 the International Monetary fund [IMF] began lending money to the Ukraine despite the IMF’s rules that block it from lending to countries with a poor repayment history, or with no visible chance of re-payment, or in this instance the Ukraine’s outright refusal to repay its obligations. So, who was willing to step into to help the Ukraine?
