Russia files lawsuit against Ukraine over $3 bln debt

MOSCOW, Feb 17 (Reuters) - Russia filed a lawsuit against Ukraine on Wednesday at London’s High Court in connection with a $3 billion Eurobond debt, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said.

“The lawsuit was filed after repeated unsuccessful attempts to encourage Ukraine to (engage in) a constructive dialogue on debt restructuring,” Siluanov said.

He added that Ukraine was not ready to negotiate in a “spirit of goodwill”. (Reporting by Lidia Kelly; Editing by Jack Stubbs)
