MOSCOW, 15 Oct. Moscow maintains its stance on the debt of Ukraine before the Russian Federation Eurobonds for $ 3 billion: it needs to be returned, otherwise it will mean a default of the country, told reporters the President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

“The debt is no change in Russia’s position not,” Peskov said during a conference call. He recalled that the Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said earlier that Moscow does not intend to discuss the restructuring of Ukraine’s debt at $ 3 billion and expects that he will be fully repaid in December of this year.

“Of course, the default situation provides for certain procedures: the default is default”, — Peskov said, answering the question about Russia’s readiness to defend its interests in international court.
