Russia makes debt payment to IMF - 11 August, 2003

Russia has allocated $54.3m (about 38.94m Special Drawing Rights, or SDRs) in debt payments to the International Monetary Fund today, a source in the Russian Finance Ministry reported to RBC. The source specified that this sum had been allocated to repay a part of the principal debt while interests would be paid later, according to the corresponding schedule.

Since the beginning of 2003, Russia has already repaid about $1.35bn to the IMF, including both payments on the principal debt and interests. Russia's total payments to the fund to be made this year are about $2.1bn.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
