BERLIN, February 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Two billion dollars of aid for Ukraine remains undecided as Russia awaits clarity on a new Ukrainian government, Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukaev told a news conference on Friday.

“Late last year, we bought Ukrainian bonds in the amount of $3 billion,” said Ulyukaev. “There were plans soon to purchase another $2 billion-worth but as they have not been issued yet, the question awaits a positive answer.”

“Russia is not putting forward any special preconditions,” the minister added.

“Since the Ukrainian government resigned, we just want to be clear about Ukraine’s new government, its make-up and programme, to understand who we are dealing with, who is our partner, whom we provide with financial aid,” Ulyukaev said.
