Ivan Tchakarov, chief economist at Renaissance Capital in Moscow, comments on how U.S. debt talks may affect emerging markets. He spoke by telephone from the Russian capital today.
Ukraine is unlikely to get more money from the International Monetary Fund as part of a $15.6 billion bailout program before parliamentary elections next year, Renaissance Capital said.
"The politics seems to be more important now than economics, which is taking a second seat at the moment."
