MOSCOW, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is ready to purchase the next tranche of Ukraine’s Eurobonds amounting to two billion dollars, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Thursday.
Siluanov commented on a statement by Ukrainian First Deputy Finance Minister Anatoly Myarkovksy saying Kiev intended to place the next tranche of Eurobonds amounting to two billion dollars for the benefit of Russia.
“We seek to receive one more tranche of Ukraine’s Eurobonds,” the Russian minister said answering a question if Eurobonds might be purchased till the end of the month.
Myarkovsky said the next tranche would be placed on the same conditions like as in December.
In December 2013 the Russian-Ukrainian interstate commission agreed that Russia would receive Ukraine’s Eurobonds amounting to 15 billion dollars at 5 percent interest.
In December 2013 Russia bought three billion dollars worth of two-year Ukrainian Eurobonds at 5 percent interest.
