KIEV (Reuters) – A London court has agreed to a request from Ukraine to suspend judgment in a $3 billion Eurobond case brought by Russia until Kiev’s appeal against the verdict is concluded, the Ukrainian finance ministry said on Wednesday.

“The Court accepted Ukraine’s position and granted a further suspension of the judgment until Ukraine’s appeal has been concluded,” the ministry said.

It said the appeal would be heard by the English Court of Appeal in January 2018.
