STRELNA, St Petersburg, March 15 (Itar-Tass) – Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said if Belarus conducted privatisation at the amount of 2.5 billion dollars, it did not need a loan from Russia.
Siluanov said Belarus had asked a two-billion dollar loan from Russia. “The talks are being held,” the Russian minister said on Friday.
“If Belarus is able to conduct privatisation, it does not need the loan,” he noted.
Siluanov recalled that the privatisation of several enterprises was an obligation for Belarus to get funding from the EurAsEC Anti-Crisis Fund.
