MOSCOW, July 14. /TASS/. Greek factor did not make a significant impact on the situation on Russian currency market, an official with the Central Bank told TASS.

On Monday, the summit of the eurozone reached agreement on the third aid program for Greece.
The third international package of macro-financial aid to Greece will be up to €90 billion for three years. In its turn, Greece promised to carry out reforms, which actually imply austerity measures.
Greece also committed to transfer its state assets for the sum of €50 bln to a special fund managed by the creditors. This fund may be directly used to finance the aid program or to guarantee loans.
