    Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that Russian new Eurobonds were placed among foreign investors exclusively, with the United States clients having acquired 53 percent.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian new Eurobonds were placed among foreign investors exclusively, with the United States clients having acquired 53 percent, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said Thursday.

    According to Siluanov, US investors bought 53 percent of Eurobond, European clients purchased 43 percent, while Asia got 4 percent.

    Siluanov also said that Russian Finance Ministry was satisfied with the results of Eurobond placement, as the demand, at $7.5 billion, was six times bigger than the placement volume.

    In late May, Russia announced a return to the international bond market, launching sovereign 10-year Eurobonds worth $1.75 for the first time since 2013.
