BREAKING: Russia defaulted on foreign debt today for the first time since 1918
Russia defaulted on its foreign-currency sovereign debt for the first time in a century, the culmination of ever-tougher Western sanctions that shut down payment routes to overseas creditors.

For months, the country found paths around the penalties imposed after the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine. But at the end of the day on Sunday, the grace period on about $100 million of snared interest payments due May 27 expired, a deadline considered an event of default if missed.

It’s a grim marker in the country’s rapid transformation into an economic, financial and political outcast. The nation’s eurobonds have traded at distressed levels since the start of March, the central bank’s foreign reserves remain frozen, and the biggest banks are severed from the global financial system.

But given the damage already done to the economy and markets, the default is also mostly symbolic for now, and matters little to Russians dealing with double-digit inflation and the worst economic contraction in years.

Russia last failed to pay its foreign borrowing during the 1918 Revolution when Vladimir Lenin, the newly installed communist leader, repudiated the debt of the Russian Empire. Russia defaulted on its ruble-denominated bonds during a financial crisis in 1998, but it was able to stay current with its overseas debt at the time.

Russia missed payments on two foreign-currency bonds as of late Sunday, according to holders of the bonds. The day marks the expiration of a 30-day grace period since the country was due to pay the equivalent of $100 million in dollars and euros to bondholders.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 83757486


It's more complicated than that, if someone in the West is holding bonds as collateral, those bonds can get rated so low due to default status at the ratings agencies that they can no longer be used for collateral. This effect is more of a knock on thing you might see in the Western markets in real time than anything in Russia.

Key word being "might" since there has been plenty of time for institutional investors and banks to get ahead of what everyone knew was coming and unwind these positions ahead of time. Unless they are underwater too much or over leveraged degenerates on the hook in complicated ways that they can't really unwind as everything else in the market takes a slow dump. So in essence it could lead to even more volatility market-wide starting as early as pre market tomorrow morning.

We shall see. Everything is related to something else in the world of money, fart in Russia, breathe the in shit winds in Chicago.

The best part is if that Western markets due take a blow due to this they can turn around and start blaming Putin immediately for any of the bad bets the greedy suits at the banks and hedge funds made and spin it that way.

Or nothing could happen at all because anyone who thinks they can 100% predict the market or has all the facts is full of shit and more often than not will be one of the biggest losers by becoming one of these dummies doing this dumb shit in the end after they get too arrogant.

Not a surprise:

Investors have expected Russia to default for months. Insurance contracts that cover Russian debt have priced a 80% likelihood of default for weeks, and rating agencies like Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s have placed the country’s debt deep into junk territory.

The Credit Default Determination Committee — an industry group of banks and investment funds — ruled June 7 that Russia had failed to pay required additional interest after making a payment on a bond after the April 4 due date. But the committee put off taking further action due to uncertainty over how sanctions might affect any settlement.

Russia hasn't defaulted on anything. The west has blocked them from the western financial systems so they had to pay in rubles. This is the doing of Satanic west.
In his poem Human Pride, Marx admits that his aim is not to improve the world, reform or revolutionize it, but simply to ruin it and enjoy it being ruined:

With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking in the radio for the announcer.”

– Nasseim Haramein, Director of Research for the Resonance Project


Normalize every aberrant behavior, bring common all deviancy and let fly the reins of morality and reason, then welcome in that utopia that liberals embrace called communism, that which most Americans with but a shard of ethic would immediately recognize as evil.
