International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said the IMF "no longer considers improbable for Russia to default."

Kristalina Georgieva noted that the situation around Ukraine would not lead to a global crisis.

There is no condition for default in Russia, Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said on March 11.

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that there are no conditions for a default in Russia. “In fact, as such, there are no conditions for a default unless they are created and imputed to us artificially,” he said.
