Russia has raised $5.5bn in Eurobond!

Russia has raised $5.5bn (4bn euros; £3.5bn) in its first international debt sale since it defaulted in 1998. Initial reports said that demand for the Eurobond was five times higher than expected. The Eurobond was split between a $2bn issue repayable in five years, and $3.5bn in ten years.

I have been following this from its initial conception a few months ago. I was curious about what the outcome would be. Russia has tested the waters with this bond issuance because they needed to get a grip on what the markets are demanding.
Looks like a success…
Windows to Russia!

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
