The twentieth day of the war against the Russian invaders in Ukraine continues. The major developments of this day were the possible imminent default of Russia, as well as the Russian army’s obstruction of the civil evacuation. At the same time, the invaders shelled the Zhytomyr region.

Russia’s default

Russia may default on March 16, as it will be necessary to pay the coupon in dollars, that has little chance of working under the current sanctions, Bloomberg reported.

According to the agency's forecast, there are three possible options for Russia's default. The first is if Russia pays off the dollar obligations that will temporarily avert a debt crisis until April 4, the next due maturity dates for dollar bonds.

The second option assumes that Russia will redeem dollar bonds in rubles, which will be perceived by investors as the impossibility of fulfilling obligations and the country's default.

The third option is if Russia refuses to pay. The country will have a 30-day grace period, otherwise there will be a classic hard default.

Evacuation from Mariupol

As of 14:00, it is known that 2,000 cars left Mariupol. Another 2,000 cars are parked on the way out of town.
