There are no reasons for a default in Ukraine so far, the economist and managing partner of the Capital Times investment company Eric Nyman stated in the comment to GORDON .
"I do not see any reasons for a default. We have only one critical debt – Russian eurobonds for $3 billion in fact stolen by Yanukovych. If Russia presents bonds for early repayment, then there will be a threat of default. If it does not present them – I do not see any reasons. And whether Russia will file complaint or not is already a legal issue. It is necessary to study every word of the contract," the expert considers.
According to him, a default is possible only in case the IMF suspends financial aid to Ukraine.
"Next year such a scenario is possible if Ukraine stops receiving international financial aid from the IMF and other organizations. We are waiting for the decision of the IMF at the end of this year. I am almost sure that they will approve cooperation conditions. Moreover, there is a question of increasing the program of assistance to Ukraine, therefore I personally do not believe in a default in Ukraine, it will be great nonsense," Nyman summed up.
