The court of appeal of England on Friday confirmed the argument of the Ukraine about Kiev allegedly exerted on the pressure to score for Russia loan of $ 3 billion, but only stated that to study it we need a comprehensive judicial process, explained earlier, the Finance Ministry of the Russian Federation. According to his statement, the results of the appeal against the decision of the Russian side in the Supreme court of the United Kingdom or will establish a new trial, or Ukraine will finally be obliged to pay Russia the debt.
