Kiev’s Bluff: Yatsenyuk’s Ultimatum over Ukraine’s Debt to Russia

The latest developments pertaining to Ukraine’s debt to Russia continue to unfold at a breakneck pace. At the Nov. 16 G20 summit in Turkey, President Vladimir Putin dropped a bombshell: Russia is prepared to restructure Ukraine’s debt and forgo the $3 billion payment that would have been due at the end of the year in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement...

Ukraine’s Default, Kiev’s Desperate Maneuvers, and IMF’s Backroom Deals

Ukraine is headed straight toward a full-scale default on its public debt, which currently totals $70 billion, of which $40 billion is owed to foreign creditors, about half of whom are private lenders, while the others are official state or public entities (such as foreign governments and international financial institutions)...

Technical Default or Death Sentence for Ukrainian Economy?

Situation in Ukraine has been leading up to this for a long time and it has finally happened. A default was formally registered on 23 September – the day that the European Committee of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) adopted its resolution on Ukraine confirming the country’s technical default...

Whitewashing the IMF’s Destructive Role in Greece

This autumn may see anti-austerity coalitions gain power in Portugal, Spain and Italy, while Marine le Pen’s National Front in France presses for outright withdrawal from the eurozone. These countries face a common problem: how to resist the economic devastation that the European Central Bank (ECB), European Council and IMF “troika” has inflicted on Greece and is now intending to do the same to southern Europe.

Does the Greek Bailout Pave the Way for the United States Of Europe?

Illusions are at play in the modern tragedy that is the Greek economic system, particularly when it comes to notions of who benefits most from the latest bailout.

EU’s Greek Austerity Plan Rejected By The IMF - Paul Craig Roberts

I have maintained since the so-called Greek Debt “crisis” began back in 2010, I believe it was, that the imposition of austerity on Greece could not possibly work and that the only solution was to write down the debt to a level that Greece could service and introduce reforms that loosen the hold the oligarchs have on the Greek economy. The current Greek government has taken the same position, and now the IMF has joined us.

Europe’s debt situation in the light of past sovereign defaults

At least two European countries today are on the verge of sovereign default. Those are Greece and Ukraine. It is difficult to believe that the deteriorating debt situation in those countries simply arose on its own. The debt crises in Greece and Ukraine are man-made. The West (specifically «the money masters») methodically and on a «scientific basis» have driven both countries into a trap of debt...

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria...
