Russia is preparing a lawsuit in the international court of justice as the international norms of sovereign debt cannot be restructured on the same basis as private. Kiev said that Russia will not receive better terms than private lenders.

“No,” Siluanov responded to the question, are underway with Ukraine in any negotiations on debt repayment.
