Russia-Ukraine Deal PossibleRussia-Ukraine Deal Possible

Ukraine may still reach an agreement with Russia on $3 billion of debt it defaulted on last month as talks mediated by Germany continue, Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko said, Bloomberg reported. Officials from the two sides’ finance ministries may meet “in the near future” after their lawyers negotiated last month, Jaresko said Saturday in an interview in Davos. The next round may be among lower-level representatives if scheduling conflicts prevent the ministers from attending, she said. “I think it’s still very possible to reach a consensual agreement out of court with Russia,” Jaresko said.
