“This week, two billion,” Siluanov said while answering the question about when Russia is to get the next tranche.
In mid-December 2013 Russia agreed to grant Ukraine a $15 billion loan and a 33 percent gas discount.
At the end of last year Russia bought the first bonds worth $3 billion dollars at 5 percent interest.
At the end of January Ukraine said it would issue another $2 billion worth of government bonds to Russia, with the same conditions as the previous $3 billion bond sale in December.
A mission of international lenders will return to Greece later this week to review progress made in delivering on the country’s reforms, the chairman of euro-zone finance ministers, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, has said.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Commission and the European Central Bank interrupted a visit to Athens last year because there was no progress in discussions with Greek authorities.
This has held up disbursements of loans due since September 2013, Reuters said.
The main sticking point is how Athens would plug a gap in this year’s budget, estimated at 1 billion euro.
