Russia may place ruble-denominated Eurobonds in 2010 or 2011 - Kudrin

YALTA. July 2 (Interfax) - Russia may offer ruble-denominated bonds on global markets this year or next, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said at an international investment forum in Yalta.

"We will perhaps place ruble-denominated Eurobonds this year or next," he said.

Russian plans to "promote the ruble on world markets," he said. "We are currently borrowing in dollars, but we can borrow on world markets on a ruble-denominated basis too," he said.
