Ukraine in Debt Plea

KIEV -- Ukraine, which faces crushing debt payments this year, plans to ask the Paris Club of sovereign creditors to restructure $500 million of its foreign debts, Finance Minister Ihor Mityukov said.

"The volume of debts on which we can start talks is around $700 million, of which $200 million is interest that is not liable to restructuring, while $500 million is the principal which can be restructured," Mityukov said Sunday on state television.
