Yatseniuk about debt recovery: Russia should address criminals who it granted political asylum


Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk advised Russia's leadership to recover $3 billion owed by Ukraine from its former high-rank officials.

He said this at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, Censor.NET reports citing 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"Yesterday, all civilized world made up its mind as to restructuring: the International Monetary Fund, the EU leadership, the United States, G7 finance ministers, with the exception of one country - Russia. Once again I want to remind you that Russia was not a member of the creditors' committee, and yesterday it claimed its desire to get the money back in full. I've got a piece of advice for them. Those who took the money were granted political asylum in Russia. Therefore, the Kremlin should address the criminals it sheltered and ask them about repayment. Or it should repatriate them, and we will gladly take to court each person, who embezzled public money," Yatseniuk said.
