#AceFinanceNews – MOSCOW – April 22 – Russia’s aid for Ukraine during the entire post-Soviet period was worth approximately a quarter of a trillion dollars, the Voice of Russia radio quoted Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev as saying.

Commenting on the statements of Russian MPs in the State Duma on Tuesday, he said that about $250 billion was a fair figure.

“This is the size of the support that we may have provided to our Ukrainian friends and brothers during the entire post-Soviet period at the expense of all sorts of preferences, including the non-market conditions for gas trade,” Medvedev said.
