Both Ukraine and Greece are seeking debt relief from foreign creditors as the two countries teeter on the brink of insolvency. Officials in Kyiv and Athens say their nations’ debt levels are unsustainable and must be restructured, an assessment echoed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). But while both countries push to stave off bankruptcy, here are four differences between their respective financial predicaments.


Ukraine has touted its commitment to pushing through reform measures in exchange for Western aid, even as some legislative reforms have stalled. Kyiv has acted on the request of Western creditors by raising energy tariffs and trimming Ukraine’s banking sector, while Ukrainian officials have urged lawmakers to act on legislation required to secure further Western financing, including measures concerning the banking sector, anticorruption efforts, regulating public utilities, and reforming the Naftogaz gas company.

By contrast, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ far-left Syriza party won elections in January by pledging to oppose deeply unpopular austerity measures imposed by Greece's creditors. Tsipras called a nationwide July 5 referendum that resulted in a resounding "no" to further austerity measures in return for bailout loans. In an apparent capitulation, however, the Greek government on July 9 submitted proposed economic reforms to secure a $55-billion bailout from European creditors.

Private Creditors

Ukraine faces a current debt crisis mainly involving private international creditors. Four of these creditors, U.S. investment and hedge funds that hold around $8.9 billion in Ukrainian debt, are locked in negotiations over debt relief with Kyiv ahead of an interest payment due on July 24. The IMF says its $17.5 billion bailout for Ukraine is contingent upon Kyiv reducing payments to commercial creditors by $15 million through 2018. Kyiv has threatened a payment moratorium if the bondholders do not accept a 40 percent writedown, a proposal the lenders have resisted.

By contrast, the lion’s share of Greece’s official debt -- totaling some 242.8 billion euros, according to a Reuters analysis last month -- is owed to European governments. Germany is by far Athens’ largest creditor, with 57.23 billion euros in exposure to Greek debt, according to Reuters. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has taken a tough stance on Athens’ bid to restructure its debts, and German public opinion has been strongly opposed to concessions to Greece.

“[Fedchenko’s] list targets people who use fake images, fake witness statements, and who cite fake experts in order to motivate Russia’s hybrid forces in Ukraine to kill and for the Russian public to approve.”

By ANDREW RETTMAN for EUObserver, July 10, 2015

BRUSSELS - It might sound like a travesty of EU values on free press, but serious people are saying fake Russian journalists should be blacklisted.

One man calling for it is Yevhen Fedchenko.

He’s a teacher of journalism at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Ukraine and a journalist of 20 years’ experience. He’s also the man behind, a website which debunks Russian media lies on Ukraine.

“We need to act rapidly and firmly,” he told EUObserver.

“I really strongly support such a list [travel ban and asset-freeze], in order to shift responsibility from institutional to personal level. That's why I think it might feature not only top bosses, but also ‘journalists’ who execute propaganda policy”.

He gave EUobserver 18 names of Russians whom, he says, are guilty of “incitement” and “warmongering”.

"Unfortunately, this week we failed to go further in the adoption of four important progressive bills that will help to protect the savings of citizens, improve our economy, energy and power, and which are necessary for further progress in relations with the IMF, the World Bank, as well as for obtaining loans from Japan and Germany," the Minister noted.

"We call on members of the Parliament to pass these bills on the first-priority basis on July 14, as soon as the next plenary week starts," Jaresko posted.................

A 13-point agreement reached in the Belarussian capital Minsk guarantees three years of self-rule to militia-run parts of Ukraine's industrial provinces of Lugansk and Donetsk.

Comrades call other contractors who discouraged if something happens in Ukraine, you will write off or write down retroactively to deserters who fled and was blown up on a mine accident. Agitators do not put pressure on patriotism, and promised almost veteran status to do (entitles you to many benefits, housing and so forth. - Ed.) and to pay 8000 per day. In fact, I know from his colleagues, money thrown, no one had agreed to nothing did not pay "- he said.

"No war in the Donbass did not want to over 8 thousand a day that promised to recruiters, nor for 28 servicemen fled (from the landfill. - Ed.), Someone asked for money from relatives, while others traveled chaise, hitchhiking.

On Friday, July 10, as a result of clashes between the terrorists "Donetsk People's Republic" and the regular units of the Russian army ammunition depot was blown up.

This is with reference to the information from local residents reported

Around 14:30 Gorlovka, roughly in the area w / m Komarov, thundered a loud explosion. It is noted that the explosion was so strong that within a few kilometers of the shock wave opens the door povyletali glass.

Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged the devastating impact of Western sanctions on the Russian economy, which were introduced as part of the impact on a country-aggressor for its actions on the territory of Ukraine.

This was the Russian leader said on July 10 in Ufa at a press conference after the summit of the SCO and BRICS, reports "Interfax".

According to him, the instrument of sanctions should be removed from the global economy.

"A tool such as sanctions in general should be removed from the lexicon of international economic and communication, and should not be used in the global economy", - Putin said.

The Russian President has complained that the sanctions overturned economy "upside down." Putin said that everyone should live in normal, natural conditions. "Only in this way can a sustainable, stable and sound development," - he explained.

Note that Putin did not say that to the lifting of sanctions Russia repeatedly offered to withdraw its troops from the Crimea and the Donbass.

As reported by the "Observer", in 2014, when the flywheel sanctions against Russia aggressor was just beginning to unfold in Moscow started resonance patriotic action "Trendy answer - no sanctions!" , which is designed to distract Russians from the influence of Western sanctions on the Russian economy. According to organizers, the main idea of ​​the event - to show the world that "Russia is not afraid of sanctions." In Russian
A joint venture of German company Siemens and the "Power Machines" builds gas turbines for power plants in the Russian Federation. Can they bypass the sanctions to be in the Crimea? Suppliers and buyers deny everything.

"Siemens is subject to sanctions, and comply with the laws," - said the official representative of the German DW Group, commenting the Russian business newspaper "Vedomosti". Last week, the publication reported that the joint venture "Siemens gas turbine technology" (65 percent from Siemens, the remainder - in Russian "Drivetrain machines") will supply gas turbines for power plants Crimean two-way circuit.

Scheme set to "Vedomosti", based on the statements of anonymous interlocutors. According to her, the joint venture has received an order from "Tekhnopromexport" for the purchase of gas turbines and equipment for new power plants. Formally, the agreement is for the supply of turbines in the Krasnodar region, but the ultimate goal is alleged to Crimea. In addition to plans to build a thermal power plant in the region, "Tekhnopromexport" (daughter of the state corporation "Rostec") received a contract to build a thermal power plant in Sevastopol and Simferopol.

"And none of the sanctions they are not holding back"

Indirect evidence Siemens plans could be considered a statement of Alexei Mordashov, owner of "Power Machines" and a partner of Siemens joint venture. In a recent interview with the newspaper "Kommersant" on the question of whether he plans to deliver something to the Crimea, Mordashov said: "It is interesting that we now see significant competition for these projects, mainly from Western companies - are actively penetrate this market, and for some reason they no sanctions against the Crimea does not hinder."

Indeed, the work of foreign companies in the Crimea may be contrary to the sanctions imposed by the EU and the United States against Russia. Western countries consider joining the Crimea to the Russian Federation in violation of international law and banned for their companies on certain activities in the Crimea, the import of certain groups of goods and services. The sanctions, in particular, apply to the energy sector.

Sanctions violators can expect huge fines. Thus, the oil service company Schlumberger for violation of the sanctions regime with Iran and Sudan sentenced in the United States in 2015 to pay a record fine of more than $ 230 million. In the EU, monitoring compliance with the sanctions regime by Members States. "In Germany, the violation is punishable sanctions fines and threatens significant reputational losses", - explained DW in the German Ministry of Economics.

From Taman to Crimea at hand

Siemens does not comment on specific contracts, DW said at company headquarters in Munich, noting that in order to clarify the situation to be "enough" refutation of the partner company. It is a written statement, "Tekhnopromexport" who denied the version of "Vedomosti" that the turbines ordered from the joint venture Siemens, can go to the Crimea.

"Gas turbine equipment that is the subject of contracts of" VO

"Tekhnopromexport" and Siemens, is intended for the construction of power generation facilities in the Krasnodar region, "- said the company. However, unlike the thermal power plant in the Crimea," Tekhnopromexport "has not yet won the" competitive selection "in the Krasnodar region - if we judge according to the Energy Ministry.

In the Krasnodar region, according to the plans of the Ministry of Energy, can be built two thermal power plants: one in Novorossiysk, the other - in Taman. "Both of the region is energy deficient, with the planned construction of a port in Taman", - the Ministry of Energy told DW. Taman on air line removed no more than 20 kilometers from the Crimean peninsula.

Theoretically, a TPP in Taman electricity would flow to the Crimea on a cable that will transfer to the bottom of the sea in the area. Construction is already underway energy bridge. But the Ministry of Energy say that electricity to power bridge will supply primarily the Rostov nuclear power plant and the new plant in Krasnodar region "are not necessary to ensure the supply of the Crimea." The peninsula is in dire need of its own power generation facilities. The dependence on supplies of electricity Crimea from Ukraine up to 90 percent.

Siemens hopes on Russia do not come true

If the plans of such delivery to the Crimea and exist, without the consent of Siemens, they hardly realizable, journalists argue the German edition of FAZ, paid attention to the publication of "Vedomosti". Contracts of this type are made Siemens, as a rule, so that the location of the delivered goods the buyer can only be changed with the permission of the supplier.

According to the newspaper FAZ quoted observers, even if the Russians and Siemens were plans for such a multi-way delivery, after the leak of hardly be able to implement. "Given sanctions, the company from the European Union has no right to export to Russia, if he knows or has reason to believe that its products despite the sanctions fall the Crimea", - explained the sanctions in the German Ministry of Economy on request DW. However, the ministry refused to comment the case c Siemens.

Siemens AG suffers substantial losses in Russia since the annexation of the Crimea and the outbreak of hostilities in the east of Ukraine. In particular, it is hardly justified by the rate that the Russian joint venture will be able to compensate for the sharp decline in demand concern at the large gas turbines in Europe. "Business with Russia as a whole has been hit, we reduced approximately two times," - said company chairman Joe Kaeser (Joe Kaeser) in April 2015, assessing the performance of the concern over the past year.
