"We approached Russia with a final proposal to hold negotiations on Oct. 29, but it once again refused to talk. Now everything depends on whether Russia is ready to continue negotiations or not. No other conditions except those offered to other creditors will be given to Russia. In case Russia ignores an appropriate restructuring, the Ukrainian government will introduce a moratorium on the payment of a $3 bln debt to the Russian Federation," the prime minister said.
Earlier, the financial authorities of the two countries failed to agree on Kyiv's restructuring of a $3 bln debt.
