MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Russian finance ministry said on Monday it remained confident that the UK Supreme Court would rule in Moscow’s favour in a Russia-Ukraine $3 billion (£2.34 billion) Eurobond case, it said in a statement.
The debt was borrowed six years ago by a pro-Russian president months before he was toppled in a popular uprising. Moscow is seeking a summary judgment in its favour that could see Ukraine ordered to pay the debt in full, without a trial.
The finance ministry also said Moscow’s total claims to Ukraine, including interest payments, came to about $4.5 billion.
