Russia to give $2bn credit to Lukashenka

The subsidiary structure of Russian Sberbank – BPS-Sberbank – is going to double the crediting of the Belarusian economy this year – almost 2 billion dollars, reports. The money will also be spent on the enterprises Russian investors are interested in.  The sum matches the AMOUNT of the state loan Lukashenka HOPED to get during his recent visit to Moscow.

The money will be provided on the terms of a bank loan - not a cheaper state loan  Lukashenka wanted.
