China Takes Sides: Sues Ukraine For $3bn Loan Repayment

Tyler Durden's picture


It is widely known that Russia is owed billions by Ukraine for already-delivered gas (as we noted earlier, leaving Gazprom among the most powerful players in this game). It is less widely know that Russia also hold $3b of UK law bonds which, as we explained in detail here, are callable upon certain covenants that any IMF (or US) loan bailout will trigger. Russia has 'quasi' promised not to call those loans. It is, until now, hardly known at all (it would seem) that China is also owed $3bn, it claims, for loans made for future grain delivery to China. It would seem clear from this action on which side of the 'sanctions' fence China is sitting.


Via RBC Ukraine (Google Translate),

In 2012, The State Food and Grain Corporation and the Export-Import Bank of China agreed to provide Ukrainian corporation loan of $ 3 billion, which was planned to be on the spot and forward purchases of grain for future delivery to China.




Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Igor Schweich confirmed that China has filed a lawsuit against Ukraine in a London court for the return of a loan of $3 billion.

The Ukraine minister disagrees with China's case:

"filed false information that there are no claims to us from China. According to the contract have different interpretations, different interpretations, which led to the treatment of the Chinese side in court Gaft who works in London. Registered dispute between the parties exists," - said Minister told reporters.


According to him, the parties agreed to take the following week a representative of the Chinese corporation for the possibility of peaceful settlement of the dispute.


"We, for our part, will do their steps to ensure that the other party or retract its announcement, or we found another way to a peaceful settlement," - he said. According to Schweich, a meeting will be held on March 26.

Ukraine appears to claim that these loans were made by the previous administration

The Minister added that the main problem lies in the fact that some leaders of PJSC "State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine" incorrect information. "These people are now removed during the protest," - said Schweich, noting that China "is relevant to understand."


In February 2014. the current Prime Minister of Ukraine Yatsenyuk said that "location $ 3 billion is not found."

While China has been relatively quiet in the background - though abstaining from the UN vote waqs a clear signal of relative support for Russia - this is a meaningful step in the direction of pressure against the West, as yet again, any bailout funds would flow straight to either Russia (gas bill sor callable bonds) or China (agriculture loans).

First of all, lawyers have to give the answer to one simple but important question:
Legally or illegally was change of power in Ukraine.
Lawyers should make ordinary legal examination and issue a final legal opinion.
I assure you that in the world there is no lawyer who can put his signature under the statement about "the legality of armed rebellion in Kiev."

Thus, in terms of Law , so-called "new government in Kiev", is illegal and illegitimate . It is not government power. This is criminal rebels and an impostors. And it does not depend on the opinion of the U.S., the EU and NATO. It says Law.

Supposedly Ukraine elections end of May would make coup government legal. However , it seems no one is has confidence elections will ever take place or can predict what will happen in Eastern Ukraine where Russian influence prevails and where most of industry is located with Russian troops on border in stand-by position. High probability for Ukraine to split which explains why China wants their agricultural loan money now, especially since agriculture is located in Western Ukraine, and Russia wants payment now for natural gas deliveries made to previous government.
Obama's trip to EU can only inflame situation . Quiet diplomacy is required and for Neocons to back off. Replacing Nuland would be a first step--- blame it on use of profane language.

I've been saying that what's being missed here in this conflict is that looks to me like it's about business.  Ukraine is way behind on debts to Russia and China.  I think when Ukraine started falling apart, Russia moved to protect it's interest and it's business with and through Ukraine.  Now China is suing to collect.  I think we are being fooled by a media who wants to say that evil Russian empire is moving to rebuild the USSR when it  may be about business all along.  

What i never knew is that Ukraine is a big exporter of corn.  China fronted them loans for future delivery and now it appears that Ukraine is trying to welch on commitments.  What a turnaround it would be if it comes to pass that Russia and CHina are the real capitalists and the US & EU are the socialists who only want to maintain the status quo of EU & US subsidies by making Ukraine dependent on subsidies in return for their admission into the EU.

No doubt the Ukrainian leader was a crook.  But the Ukranian people elected him.  Who's fault is that?

Ukraine has often been described as the 'breadbasket of Europe'.  Their production of wheat, corn and other food crops was very important to the former Soviet Union.  It is also very important today, as Monsanto can now safely introduce their sharecropper economics to the European market.  That is, of course, until their water resources are contaminated by fracking like Poland and Romania.

Of course, it's business.  The western media has been putting this invasion spin on it in order to inflame public opinion.  There are many influences at work here.  One of the main objectives is to remove the Russians from a port that they controlled for 250 years.

On the subject of crooked politicians, those two words are never found far apart.

Supposedly Kirk according to another post here a few stories back their gold natural deposits are like 500 tons of gold split evenly between west east Ukraine and now Russian Crimea.  But this gold is the hard stuff to get out and requires toxic cyanice processing, which is a death sentence to the environment.  A gold mining related cyanide spill in Romania was the second worst european ecological disaster after Chernobyl.



here is a great documentary about cyanide gold mining but its in Peru


Now the biggest gold deposits in Europe and some of the biggest in the world are right across the border of western Ukraine, in the same mountains, the Carpathian Mts aka as the Transylvanian Alps, in Romania, and the owner of those resources via bribes and corruption is none other than Beny Steinmetz, richest man in Israel.  Figures he would be right next door to the other Jew Yani who is in charge of Ukraine right now.  To give you an idea how much Gold Romania had, its been mined since before the Roman Empire existed.  When the Romans conquered Romania the gold haul was so big that it made the empire whole for two hundred years and it accounted for all the famous roman buildings that we now see in Rome, like the Forum and all the classic buildings of Rome from that period.  The place still has tons of gold but the big veins of gold are gone and what is left are very small veins that require open pit mining and processing the soil with hundreds of thousands of tons of cyanide literally.  WIth huge gold deposits still in Romania its interesting the USA has opened up a big base there under the pretext of getting stuff out of Afghanistan (when they already have functioning large bases in Bulgaria and Turkey).  Also the IMF is working on getting the Romanians in more debt than they can handle.  All little levers to pull to get them to approve the mining with cyanide.  Also its been known that USA uses its bases to spy and intercept communications in the countries they are located in.  I am sure they will be gathering dirt on politicians against the mining.  And Ronald Lauder owns Pro TV Romania via CME and is also president of World Jewish Congress.



Now with dual citizens in charge in the USA, and dual citizens oligarchs all over eastern europe we know they got all bases covered, especially the Media with the big boss Ronald Lauder orchestrating the whole plan via World Jewish Congress.  LOL the Protocols of the Elders of Zion going on strong baby.  And as usual all the dual citizens have hands in each others pies with cross ownerships, like a dual citizen oligarch in Ukraine is also invested in CME, and shareholders in Romanias gold concessions include American billionaire Thomas S. Kaplan of Electrum Group and American hedge fund manager John Paulson of Paulson & Company.

What country can stand a chance against well financed and well organized criminal and killer clowns like these guys.  And people complain that Putin has a few billion dollars, it takes a lot of money to fight these bozos in a democracy they can corrupt and buy out and then plunder.

Ok found this site says 500 tons of gold and 1500 tons of silver in just the Rosia Montana mine alone in Romania

Yep, So that mine in Romania is about 25 billion gold alone, not including the silver, and there may be a lot more gold if they come up across big veins deeper than the previous mine tunnels.  This thing has potential to be really big considering there were huge veins higher up.  Now this is only one site in Romania, there are other mines.  Now the funny thing is with bribes these guys get to keep 80% of the Gold  and the other twenty percent that goes to the govt is paid for in dollars not gold, so these mofos walk away with all the gold.  With corruption in Africa the govts still get 40 to 50% of the mining proceeds, lol the Romanians are more F uped than the Africans.  If Ukraine has as much gold as Romania makes sense why the Tribe via USSA and the Euros want them so bad, of course not to mention the fracking and the farmland (probably the best farmland in the WORLD) a gift that just keeps on giving year after year and you dont give the locals anything if you own the land now.  At least the Chinese were leasing the land.

This JUST IN      Israel Radio reported that Obama administration officials have not ruled out Netanyahu’s proposal that Pollard be released in exchange for Israel’s agreement to free Israeli Arabs convicted of terrorist acts.

With Israeli-Palestinian peace talks teetering on the brink of collapse, US officials are mulling a desperate bid to resuscitate the negotiations by making a significant move that would win the approval of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s coalition, one that may perhaps include the release of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.


Its embarassing to be an American, these dual citizens have completely taken over this democracy, I mean JEWTOCRACY.  What a farce this crap is so we release Pollard just so they can talk to each other about not having a peace deal LOL.  Look at how hard the Jews try to spring this American traitor and soon to be Israeli citizen.  But they have no qualms at killing millions of innocents by having America invade other countries for them.  Face it gentiles you are worth nothing to them since you are slaves.  The Sons of Abraham will gladly slit your throat and let your blood flow.

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef one of the highest Rabbis in Israel said...

"Goyim (gentiles, non-Jews) were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel," he said, according to the Jerusalem Post. "Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created." An "effendi" is a lord, or a master, in Arabic.
