Ukraine is still considering its to the Russian Federation in the amount of $3 billion in the form of government Eurobonds to be a commercial debt and calls to refrain from speculations on the position of the IMF which is a key creditor since the IMF does not consider Ukraine's $3 billion Eurobond debt to Russia of late 2013 to be state debt but a commercial one.

This was stated by Ukraine's Minister of Finance Natalie Jaresko, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

Jaresko denies that the International Monetary Fund considers Ukraine's debt to Russia to be public debt and not commercial.

"There was no such decision. It was stated by Bloomberg and Reuters, citing an anonymous source, but there is no such decision of the IMF," she said.

Jaresko stressed that the IMF's official position has not changed, namely that they do not have an official position on the issue.

"I ask you look at the IMF website and at the quotes of the IMF deputy head on this issue. Everything is there. Nothing has changed," the Minister said.
