The Russian government approved at a session on Thursday
The Russian government approved at a session on Thursday a bill to ratify an agreement with Syria on settling the country's $3.6 billion Soviet-era debt to Russia.

In 2005, Russia agreed to write off 73% of Syria's Soviet-era debt to the sum of about $14.5 billion, and to reschedule repayment of the remainder.

Syria's debt to Russia accrued as a result of Soviet arms deliveries to Damascus.

Under an inter-government agreement reached with Russia, Syria has to repay $1.5 billion in convertible currency over a period of 10 years and $2.1 billion in Syrian pounds, with these funds expected to go into the implementation of joint projects.
