Only thanks to the new hype on the introduction of sanctions against Russia, the country managed to successfully place public debt.
This opinion was expressed by journalists of the edition Bloomberg, citing the words of Konstantin Vyshkovsky, head of the Department of state debt and state financial assets of the Ministry of Finance.
In his words, Russia was able to place exactly 50% of planned for year public debt. You can now sell securities with its low interest rate relative to the world market.
The vyshkovsky emphasizes that it is only through large foreign investors (public pension Fund California company Blackrock) the West may impose new sanctions against Russia.
Bloomberg reported that Russia may produce the second year of a batch of Eurobonds, and in practice this would not mean, supposedly the country needs additional funding.
However, some economists think the Finance Ministry can not be completely sure that in the future there will be new confrontations between Moscow and Washington.
