Cyprus Says 2.5 Billion-Euro Loan Agreement Signed With Russia

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Russia agreed to lend 2.5 billion euros to Cyprus, with the first tranche to be disbursed toward the end of the year, Cypriot Finance Minister Kikis Kazamias said in an interview today.

The agreement was signed in “recent days” in October, Kazamias said, declining to specify the exact date. “We did not announce it”.

The east Mediterranean island’s cabinet authorized Kazamias at the beginning of last month to sign an accord on the loan, government spokesman Stefanos Stefanou said Oct. 5. The annual interest rate is 4.5 percent and it will mature in 4 1/2 years, Stefanou said.
