MOSCOW, June 19. /TASS/. Russia will not buy Greece’s Eurobonds, but is ready to support Russian companies that plan to work in the country on construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayv said on Friday at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
"I don’t think that we can buy Eurobonds issued by Greece," Ulyukayev said.
However, Russia is ready to "invest and give guarantees" to companies that will participate in construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.
Finance Minister Anton Siluanov also told journalists that Russia did not plan to buy Greek Eurobonds.
"We don’t see ourselves investing into Greek Eurobonds," Siluanov said. He added that if Greece proposes projects that are commercially promising for Russian businesses, investment will be welcome.
