Debt commitment or “bribe”? Moscow, Kiev in war of words over $3bn loan

Moscow is expecting Kiev to clarify whether the latter is going to honor Ukraine’s international commitments made by the previous authorities, including the $3 billion debt to Russia, after President Poroshenko dubbed it a “bribe” to Viktor Yanukovich.

“In the first place, we are expecting some kind of explanations on whether the current Ukrainian authorities are planning to reject their status as a successor in terms of the country’s commitments, including international, and, primarily for us, financial and other obligations to Russia,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow.
