"Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko said she's optimistic the International Monetary Fund will continue its aid program even if the war-torn nation breaches the lender's policy by going into arrears on payment of a $3 billion bond owed to Russia," the article reads.
She noted that support from the Group of Seven industrialized nations is strong enough to prevent the IMF from halting its $17.5 billion aid program for Ukraine over the debt due to Russia in December.
The Minister of Finance noted that the G-7 would not want to see Ukraine be pushed out of an IMF program.
Creditors, including Russia, are being asked to vote by Oct. 14 on the deal, which includes a 20 percent principal writedown of the bond bought from the regime of former President Viktor Yanukovych. Russian is opposing such terms.
