Gazprom, VTB Eye Bonds

Gazprom and state development lender Vnesheconombank (VEB) may place a Eurobond in July, two banking sources said Monday.

The sizes of the possible issues have not been disclosed.

One of the sources said Gazprom may place an issue denominated in British pounds while VEB is looking at an issue in U.S. dollars. Gazprom is to redeem an 800 million pound Eurobond issue in October.

The bonds could follow an expected Eurobond placement by Russia.

Debt markets have been jittery on the back of uncertainty over the U.S. Federal Reserve's stimulus plans.

"It's not a sure thing that the conditions for placement would be better in the second half of the year. Volatility could subside but the market may freeze on new, less comfortable, levels," a source said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
