Last month, Finance Minister Suzuki said, "The trend of Russian government bonds has a direct impact on Japanese investors," said Finance Minister Suzuki, who reported that foreign media had defaulted on Russian foreign currency-denominated government bonds that had reached the deadline for interest payments. The loss is limited. "

On the 27th of last month, the Russian government said that it had reached the deadline for interest payments on dollar-denominated and euro-denominated government bonds totaling 100 million dollars and about 13.5 billion yen in Japanese yen, and had taken the payment procedure in foreign currency by the deadline.

However, several foreign media have reported that investors have not received funds after the 30-day grace period, and it is expected that the market will be aware that default = default.

Regarding this, Finance Minister Suzuki said at a press conference after the Cabinet meeting on the 28th, "It is difficult to say at this point that the impact on Japan is certain, but the ratio of investment in Russia to the total foreign bond investment in Japan is limited. "It's a target," he said, "the direct loss of Russian government bond trends to Japanese investors, including financial institutions, is limited."
