MOSCOW, 10 September (BelTA) – The volume of Russia's credit support to Belarus from September 2021 and till the end of 2022 will exceed $600 million. President of Russia Vladimir Putin made the statement after negotiations with Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko in Moscow on 9 September, BelTA has learned.
In turn, the Belarusian head of state added details to the Russian leader's answer by saying: “As for credit support… Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] once again failed to mention but I have to admit that I'd told him we don't need new loans if we could take some from the nuclear power plant project, for which we've been granted a certain loan (it is Russia's practice all over the world). If we save something, I asked him to give us the money we've saved as a loan. The answer was: we will think about it, it suits us if there are good, profitable projects for Belarus and Russia.”
