The Tynecastle side were ordered to pay players their December wages, plus interest on three overdue payments, and legal costs before January 11 – a decision Romanov branded as "unwise."
Within hours of Wednesday's SPL meeting, Hearts had settled with their players but it remains to be seen whether or not Romanov will comply with the added demands.
"I thought I had expressed myself clearly – I am selling the club and I am not going to give any more money away," he told the club website.
"It is pointless to support show business, not football. Hearts is now living out of its own budget.
"Everyone knew, including players, media and SPL, that the wages are going to be paid as soon as the money was received for Eggert Jonsson, who was sold last year.
"But media still tried to create conspiracy plots about the team and managed to get a prompt and unwise decision from the SPL meeting, which the club asked it to postpone until next week in order to get opportunity to pay the wages."
Hearts have the chance to secure some much-needed revenue by embarking on a run in the Scottish Cup, which begins with tomorrow's home tie against Auchinleck Talbot.
