Russia can ignore the penalties for at least one year - at least from the perspective of the bond market, writes the American business press.
in 2016, Russia is expected to make 44% less payments on Eurobonds than in 2015 16, $ 7 billion, according to Bloomberg. Most loans are big state-owned companies such as Rosneft and Sberbank. Support from the country and own funds will be sufficient to be able to make payments on time, stresses the magazine. At the same time, over the next 2 years Russian companies will have to pay 72 billion, which increases the likelihood of bringing to the difficulties from the borrowers. Remember, the relationship between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine - the countries of the West imposed punishment, to which Russia responded with food embargo.
