World financial crisis can subject to strategic amendments the majority of large Russian investment projects in Ukraine.
The avalanche increase in inflow of the Russian investments into Ukraine in 2005-2007, occurred at an obvious patronage from high politicians, can lead to unpredictable consequences: the burst world financial crisis exhausted investors and changed priorities of lobbyists.
In spite of the fact that the visible political context of the relations of Ukraine and the Russian Federation in 2005-2007 obviously became complicated, the sum of the Russian investments saved up since 1992 in our country doubled for this period. In 2005 ex-the secretary of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Anatoly Kinakh with pride declared that the industrial investments saved up by Russians in Ukraine in 15 years reached the sum of 511 million dollars
This unprecedented inflow of the Russian money to Ukraine in 2006-2007 was reached at the expense of several large-scale transactions which carrying out didn't do without support of high politicians. It is obvious that without their patronage "Gazprom" wouldn't become in February, 2007 the cofounder of JSC Ukrgaz — Power. Euphoria from successful and free expansion of the Russian investors to our country traditionally overshadowed the solution of the controversial questions connected with performance by the Russian owners of earlier assumed obligations. The part from them wasn't realized even in the most "full" years that calls into question further destiny of assets within the next "hungry" years.
Face of post-Maidan turn towards Moscow
To an early autumn I corrected the policy andRussian owner of the Nikolaev Aluminous Plant (NAP) (RUSAL group) Oleg Deripaska.Till crisis fall of this year "RUSAL" showed allegedly firm intentions instead of implementation of earlier assumed obligations for construction for $200 million new aluminum plant in the Kharkov area, to revitalize the monopolist of the Ukrainian market of pesticides and bases of detergents May Day "Khimprom".
Who will leave the first?
To what will lead amendments of obligations of the Russian investors of this sort before the Ukrainian authorities and the State property fund while to speak early as world crisis affected everyone on - to the. Most tragically the situation which developed atlooks"RUSAL"against a collapse of the world prices for aluminum which in three months fell from 3200 dollars for ton to 1985 dollars/t. The critical rate even more grew by the only NGZ and the specialized port which was at its disposal after foes of "RUSAL" published in the Moscow press depth of immersion of this group in financial crisis. If to trust these sources, the total debt of the companies of Oleg Deripaska by November exceeded 14 billion dollars. For debt repayment "RUSAL" was compelled to be refinanced for 4,5 billion dollars on the security of 25% of actions of "Norilsk Nickel" belonging to it, and 2 billion more dollars of the loans attracted Soyuz bank. And the group should return these short-term credits soon, and falling of the prices of aluminum in the world markets still proceeds. As it will affect further destiny of the Ukrainian projects of group (to which the press refers also partnership with the Ukrainian investors in the sphere of airport economy), it isn't known. It is clear only that in case of a hard line of FGI the European and American competitors of the Russian group who want to take long ago a revenge for years of unreasonable expansion to "the aluminum empire" Deripaska in the world market won't fail to use the chance.
