LONDON (Reuters] – Russia’s sanctions have increased the risk of Russia defaulting in its debt obligations on the international markets, JPMorgan warned Wednesday.

JPMorgan stated in a note that the United States has sanctioned Russian entities and countermeasures have been taken within Russia to limit foreign payments. “This creates high obstacles for Russia to pay a bond abroad.”

Russia will receive over $700 millions in payment this month. Most of these payments are with a 30-day grace. JPMorgan has calculated that March 16 is the date for the next applicable coupon payment. There is also a 30-day grace time.
