Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko doesn’t rule out the country failing to make a $120 million coupon payment on July 24 and default. A Goldman Sachs analyst made the forecast on Wednesday.
Ukraine could theoretically default next month, as in May the country’s parliament adopted a law allowing a moratorium on foreign debt repayments. The law aims to protect Kiev from an “attack by unscrupulous creditors.”
This echoed a forecast made by a Goldman Sachs analyst Andrew Matheny on Wednesday.
“Ukraine will not make the July 24 coupon payment and, as a result, will enter into default at that point…We do not expect the ad hoc committee to accept Ukraine’s latest restructuring proposal,” he said, Bloomberg reports.
Ukraine has asked its creditors to write off 40 percent of its debt and adopt new bonds tied to its future economic performance. Matheny says this option could allow bondholders to make a profit in the case of positive dynamics of economic indicators of Ukraine.
The Creditors’ Committee of Ukraine, which includes T. Rowe Price, TCW Group, BTG Pactual and Franklin Templeton, said it insists on changing the terms of the agreement with the Ukrainian government and the IMF to restructure the $15 billion, including $3 billion owed to Russia. The group owns about $9 billion of Ukrainian debt.
Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk also admitted Thursday his country is unable to pay the $40 billion debt it has accumulated over the last three years. The total amount required to service Kiev’s debts is equal to its military expenses, which make up five percent of GDP, he added.
Kiev is struggling to restructure its more than $50 billion debt, including $3 billion bonds sold to Russia. Some estimates put the debt at $70 billion.
The IMF says the bonds held by Russia should be treated as official rather than private debt, reported Bloomberg Tuesday, citing sources.If the $3 billion bonds are treated as Kiev’s official debt, they would be excluded from restructuring.
Jaresko is bilingual in English and Ukrainian. She received a B.Sc. degree in accounting from DePaul University, Chicago in 1987 and a master’s degree in public policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government in 1989.
Jaresko held several economics-related positions at the US Department of State in Washington, D.C., and eventually coordinated activities of the State Department, the Departments of Commerce, Treasury, the United States Trade Representative, and Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) in their economic relations with the Soviet Union and its successors. As part of her work she interacted with the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
jaresko was one the stooges brought in by the yuckmaster to head up his government..

we will see..you reckon they will just let ukraine default after all the support they have given it?..i dont think so..
In May China imported a record 3.92 million metric tons of crude oil from Russia, which is equivalent to 927,000 barrels per day. Russia has become Beijing’s top crude supplier for the first time since October 2005.
“Russia is using its good relationship with China to increase supplies and has now taken the top spot,” Gao Jian, an analyst at Shandong-based energy consultant SCI International told Bloomberg in a phone interview.
Last month Saudi Arabia delivered only 3.05 million tons to China overtaken also by Angola, which sold 3.26 million tons in May reports Bloomberg, citing data from the Chinese General Administration of Customs published Tuesday.
In April, imports of Saudi oil to the China reached its highest level since June 2013 at 5.26 million tons.
Iran exported 2.2 million tons of crude to China and intends to dramatically increase global sales within six months, if a deal on its nuclear problem is struck by June 30 and sanctions are lifted.
Russia’s state oil major Rosneft and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) signed a 25 year $270 billion oil deal at the 2013 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. It’s expected Rosneft would export 360.3 million tons of crude to China under the contract.
In October 2013 the two countries strengthened oil cooperation, when Rosneft and China’s Sinopec signed an $85 billion deal for deliveries of up to 100 million tons of crude over 10 years.
those sanctions are really curbing russias expansion eh?

The Kurdish militia YPG has begun to “surround” and “sweep the area” where Isil jihadists infiltrated Kobane, spokesman Rêdûr Xelîl told the Telegraph:
Today’s early morning, a group of five cars, loaded with 30-35 of Isil elements, wearing the clothes and raising the flag of the FSA [Free Syrian Army rebels] has undertaken a suicide attack.
They entered from the South and the West sides of Kobane to inside the town. In the beginning they exploded a suicide car bomb near the crossing [with Turkey] then they opened fire randomly at civilians, among them women and children.
Then they infiltrated inside to the neighborhoods. The YPG has started to surround them and sweep the area where they entered.
So far, 15 of this group were killed. Three of them managed to escape to Turkey. There are still some elements hiding inside the city.
The clashes are still going on between Isil elements and the YPG.
So far, we have no confirmed news, if this group entered Kobane though the Turkish borders or not. The primary information and the eye witnesses say that they entered from Turkey but officially we don’t have confirmed information yet.
Isil attacked a village called Barambarkh, near the area of Terreen, 20 km from Kobane. Terreen is a border Zone with Isil. In the village they are talking about 20 civilians [killed] but I don’t know for sure the credibility of this number.
After Isil has lost many strategic areas, it wants to prove to its supporters and its elements that they are still powerful and capable to do a lot of things. So that is why they attacked Kobane and the south part of Hasakeh.
It’s not easy for Isil to return back to Kobane. We are expecting some operations of that kind as we have 400 km of borders with them but it’s difficult for them to return to occupy the area.”
Islamic State jihadists have shown their ability to hit back after recent defeats with lightning strikes on two targets across Syria’s northern front, including the now celebrated border town of Kobane.
Turkey was forced to deny Kurdish claims that it had allowed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant to attack Kobane from its side of the border, after three car bombs and a wave of attackers were able to penetrate the town’s defences.
The attackers were able to go into Kurdish homes, shooting those inside, before being taken on and driven out by Kurdish forces, according to reports.
The attacks were an apparent bid to divert Kurdish forces away from the main battlefront involving Isil in Syria’s four-way civil war. The YPG, the Syrian Kurdish militias, took the border town of Tal Abyad from Isil last week and by Tuesday were pushing forward to within 30 miles of the jihadists’ de facto capital Raqqa.
Isil have continuously lost ground against the Kurds since being driven out of Kobane last autumn, even as they have continued to make advances against both the Syrian and Iraqi governments.
Somehow though on Thursday morning they managed to breach strong Kurdish defences around Kobane, which has seen many local families move back in as the YPG establish control.
One resident said the attackers had donned YPG uniforms, while other reports said they had mounted flags of the Free Syrian Army rebels – currently allied to the YPG – on their vehicles.
“The clashes started at 4:30 am,” said Kali Maho, a local activist. A terrorist armed group entered the city, holding explosive belts. They targeted the civilians.
“The suicide bombers were wearing YPG uniforms.
“We have locked ourselves in the house, while clashes are taking place in the street outside as well as coalition air strikes.”
Redur Xelil, the spokesman for the YPG, said: “In the beginning they exploded a suicide car bomb near the crossing (with Turkey) then they opened fire randomly at civilians, among them women and children.
“Then they entered the actual neighborhoods. The YPG has started to surround them and sweep the area where they entered.
“So far, 15 of this group were killed. Three of them managed to escape to Turkey. There are still some elements hiding inside the city.”
how turkey manages to escape scrutiny says something about who their friends are..up to 150 died in this attack and it did come from the turkish side and turkey is complicit..there is no doubting that..they hate assad and the kurds more than isis..
The Queen has spoken of the need for unity in Europe in a speech to German and UK leaders.
The UK monarch, who was at a state banquet in Berlin as part of a four-day visit to Germany, said that “division in Europe is dangerous”.
Her speech was made in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Prime Minister David Cameron, who wants to reform the UK’s EU membership.
The leaders earlier met for talks ahead of an EU summit in Brussels.
The Queen, who as head of state remains politically neutral, told the banquet in Bellevue Palace, the official residence of Germany’s president Joachim Gauck: “In our lives, we have seen the worst but also the best of our continent.
“We have witnessed how quickly things can change for the better.
“But we know that we must work hard to maintain the benefits of the post-war world.
“We know that division in Europe is dangerous and that we must guard against it in the west, as well as in the east, of our continent. That remains a common endeavour.”
“We know that division in Europe is dangerous and that we must guard against it in the west”
so we know which way she will be voting in a referendum on the uk staying in the eu..
Standard & Poor’s, the international credit ratings agency, said Tuesday that the UK voting in favour of leaving the European Union could pose growth risks for the UK financial sector and the broader economy at large.
The report echoes recent sentiments from S&P, who earlier this month downgraded their outlook for the UK’s current AAA rating to negative from stable.
The full text of the S&P text follows:
A U.K. referendum vote in favour of leaving the EU could pose a risk to growth prospects for the U.K. economy and its financial services sector, says Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services in a report published today Brexit Risk For The U.K. And Its Financial Services Sector: It’s Complicated). The U.K. will hold a referendum on whether to leave the EU by the end of 2017.
“We believe it could significantly dent the U.K.’s current net trade surplus in insurance and financial services of more than 3% of GDP,” said Standard & Poor’s credit analyst Frank Gill.
“However, the extent of this impact will crucially depend on what alternative free trade arrangements the U.K. government could agree with its European partners in the event of an exit,” said Mr. Gill.
Financial services attract 30% of the inward foreign direct investment (FDI) into the U.K., equivalent to 17% of GDP. Nearly one half of the FDI into the U.K. financial services sector comes from EU investors.
While we think London would maintain its status as a global financial centre in the event of a Brexit, global banks could ultimately consider other locations as bases for their European operations. This is because U.K.-domiciled banks use their U.K. authorization to provide banking and trading services across the EU and European Economic Area, known as passporting rights. Without these rights, we see a risk that enough major global banks could choose to route their business through other European financial centres.
yeah right..like that would ever happen..its an empty threat and not credible and its basis hangs on the UK staying or going in the EU..the city of london is the financial hub for globalists and it will stay that way for now..
