MOSCOW, May 24 (Reuters) - Foreign investors bought around $1.3 billion of the Eurobond that Russia placed on Tuesday, a financial market source told Reuters.
Russia sold $1.75 billion of 10-year Eurobonds at a yield of 4.75 percent, sources earlier told Reuters. The source added that $1.3 billion were bought by investors from Europe, the United States and Asia.
The issue, managed by VTB Capital, the investment banking unit of state-run VTB Group, was the first since the West imposed sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine conflict. (Reporting by Katya Golubkova; writing by Alexander Winning; editing by Lidia Kelly)
