Ukraine failed to bring Russia to the table when it began negotiating with creditors to reduce its $23 billion of international debt. Russia insisted the $3 billion bond, bought from the regime of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich as part of an aid agreement and which comes due in December, shouldn't be included in the restructuring as Russia isn't a private lender.

Ukraine invited Russia, along with its other Eurobond holders to vote by Oct. 14 on the debt-restructuring deal, which includes a 20 percent principal writedown, higher average coupons and warrants tied to gross domestic product growth.
