Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has urged Russia to accept the debt payment offer.
"I am again calling on Russia to accept our offer; Russia will not be offered better terms," he said at a government meeting on Friday, noting that Russia was not a member of the creditors committee.
"Russia said yesterday it wanted the entire sum. So let me give them some public advice: those who took the money have been given political asylum in Russia, let them call for those bandits they are harboring and take the money from them or bring them [those people] here. We will gladly start proceedings on everyone who received the funds and embezzled money of the Ukrainian state," the prime minister said.
