Russia to issue new Eurobonds, swap existing ones, in one go

MOSCOW, March 14 (Reuters) - Russia plans to issue new Eurobonds and swap existing ones in one go, though not necessarily in a single day, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Wednesday.

According to its 2018 budget, Russia plans to place up to $3 billion in new bonds and to swap up to $4 billion more of the bond this year for debt with lower coupons.

"We will do this in one go, but that doesn't mean we'll do it in one day, in a single package," Siluanov said. (Writing by Polina Ivanova Editing by Denis Pinchuk and Jon Boyle)
