This was announced by Ukraine's Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko in an interview to CCTV-America, Censor.NET reports.

"It is our intention to treat all of our creditors equally, regardless of nationalities. It (Putin's loan to Yanukovych - ed.) is a part of restructuring that we hope to succeed in over the next few weeks," Jaresko said.
