This is completely understandable, all the other manipulations" - leads the Agency of his word. Medvedev added that one of the terms of restructuring - a guarantee on debt, which would give a first-class Bank.

The Ukrainian government has repeatedly demanded to restructure the loan in a joint environment (similar to how the loans were refinanced before the club of private creditors - the latter agreed to write off 20 percent of the joint debt and to extend the deadline). Russia insisted on the full payment.
