Penalty interest is calculated from 21 December 2015. Each day of delay will cost the state budget of Ukraine more than 673 thousand dollars.
Also Kiev is obliged to reimburse the Moscow-related litigation costs in the amount of 2.8 million pounds. Half of this amount, Ukraine has to pay not later than September 20, 2017.
The requirement of the Russian Federation concerning payment of Ukraine the rest of the costs incurred because of a debtor’s obligations on the bonds, will be considered after decision on appeal of Kyiv on the decision of the High Court of London. The appeal will be reviewed in January 2018.

The Russian Agency believes that established by the court facts will be a sufficient basis for the approval of the court of appeal verdict in favor of the Russian Federation.
