Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing The Economic Times.
According to him, the Russian position remains unchanged - Moscow considers the debt to be the national one and should be paid in full. Non-payment of the debt would mean default and a court case, he said as quoted by TASS.
Ukraine's debt to Russia is due on Dec. 20, and Russia has said Kyiv has 10 days after that to repay the debt or accept a restructuring deal proposed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Ukraine's Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko earlier announced that Russia made no offers on the debt. Peskov in his turn could not say whether any contacts were made with Kyiv on this matter.
