Disinfo: Kiev refuses to pay its official national debt


Kiev refuses to pay its official national debt. Two years ago, when Yanukovych refused to sign DCFTA with the EU, and the West later refused to help Kiev, the salvation came from Russia: three billion (dollars).


Ukraine did not refuse to pay the debt, it just asked for its restructuring.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.
