Russia says to provide $50 mln to Kyrgyzstan

MOSCOW, April 14 (BestGrowthStock) – Russia will provide $50 million
in grants and loans to Kyrgyzstan, Finance Minister Alexei
Kudrin said on Wednesday, after members of the interim Kyrgyz
government said the Central Asian nation had no money left.
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said the amount of aid
granted by Moscow to Kyrgyzstan, where the previous government
was overthrown last week, could be increased if needed. He said
Kyrgyz officials had told him their state coffers were empty.
