 Ukraine-Russia total mutual claims amount to almost $100 billion

Mutual claims filed by Russia and Ukraine in lawsuits and other legal claims from Stockholm to The Hague amount to almost $100 billion.

Censor.NET reports citing Bloomberg.

The $3 billion lawsuit Russia filed against Ukraine in London last week over a bond default is just a fraction of the $63 billion Ukraine is seeking in lawsuits and other legal claims from Stockholm to The Hague over Putin's annexation of Crimea. Russian gas exporter Gazprom PJSC, meanwhile, is demanding about $32 billion in unpaid bills, pushing total claims from both sides to almost $100 billion.
