“Subject to the conditions of borrowing under the previous three programmes EU macro-financial assistance, the interest rate of borrowing for 10-15 years is projected as acceptable (up to 2% per annum), but the exact amount will be known only during the release of the European Commission, which has the highest credit rating (AAA) on the external debt market for funds, will be transferred to Ukraine under the same rate”, – stated in the explanatory Memorandum.
