Russia has decided to allocate another stabilizing credit of 2 billion dollars to Belarus. The Russian Minister of Finance Alyaksei Kudryn has informed about it. The money will be delivered in two 1-billion dollar credit tranches. The first tranche is expected to arrive this year and the other one – in 2009, informs “PRIME-TASS”.
Let us remind you that the Belarusian authorities started asking for the Russian credit in summer. The Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin charged the head of the Minister of Finance Alexei Kudrin to think about “an additional credit” for Belarus on August 4. Experts discussed the terms of the allocation of the credit for 2 or 3 months.
