Russia's clearing debt to Croatia stands at $300 million - Croatian PresidentMOSCOW. Feb 19 (Interfax) - Croatian President Stjepan Mesic said that, according to Croatia's estimates, Russia has a clearing debt to his country that stands at $300 million.
"Negotiations are underway on the share of each successor of the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia in the clearing debt of the former USSR to the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia. I think Croatia's share stands at $300 million," Mesic told a briefing in Moscow on Wednesday.
"We believe that part of this debt can be repaid now, partially by [Russia's participation in the] demining [of the territory of Croatia] and partially in various commodities," Mesic said.
