February 23, 2014

Moscow, February 23 (BNA) - Russia will make a decision about sending the next instalment of financial aid to Ukraine after a new government is formed in Kiev, Russian Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov said.

In press statements today, the Russian minister said that the Russian government discussed buying 2 billion Ukrainian Eurobonds last week but, as the political situation has changed dramatically, Russia should be aware what Ukrainian government it is going to deal with, "so we intend to wait until a new government is formed and its policy has taken shape. After that Russia will act respectively," he said. EM
