This allows us to speak not only about the high confidence of market participants in the shareholders of Alfa Group, but also about the effective support of plans for the banking business development in Ukraine. Herewith, the current issues of Eurobonds by our bank are instrumental in preparing the ground for planning the next issue in late 2016-early 2017,” noted Rushan Khvesyuk, Chief Executive Officer of Alfa-Bank (Ukraine).
