The Ukrainian external debt amounts to $70.5 billion, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Ukraine’s Prime Minister, announced during the joint conference with Natalia Yaresko, Ukraine’s Finance Minister. 

“With regard to the debt, as at the beginning of 2013, the total external debt of Ukraine amounted to $73.1 billion. However, as of September 1 this year, the state debt was $70.5 billion. This is the answer to the question whether our external debt is increasing,” said Arseniy Yutsenyuk.
