MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will have separate talks with his Kyrgyz counterpart Almazbek Atambayev on Tuesday, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told reporters.
They will discuss adjustment of Kyrgyzstan’s economy to the Eurasian Economic Union, Russian assistance and other bilateral and regional issues, the Kremlin spokesman said.
Putin and Atambayev will meet on Tuesday evening after the summits of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the Eurasian Economic Union in Moscow. It will be their fifth meeting this year.
The Russian-Kyrgyz intergovernmental agreements on developing economic cooperation in Eurasian economic integration had come into force, Ushakov said. In accordance with the agreement, Russia will give $200 million to Kyrgyzstan in two years without return payment.
An agreement has been also reached to form a Russian-Kyrgyz development fund, and Russia is expected to give $500 million for the fund as the charter capital and $500 million as a preferential loan. In addition, Russia has written off Kyrgyzstan’s debt of $488.9 million from 2013 to improve the financial situation in Kyrgyzstan.
Russia also participated in the implementation of humanitarian programs, making donations to funds of international organizations of the United Nations system (over $11 million in 2013).
