Russia's Finance Minister Anton Siluanov stated that the country intended to “participate fully” in a G20 official debt service suspension initiative to help the poorest countries fight the coronavirus. It was reported by Reuters.

Siluanov said this during a phone conversation with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that was held yesterday, on June 8.

"The pledge came during a call today between the two finance ministers, during which they discussed the coronavirus pandemic and 'response measures to support economic recovery in the United States and Russia',” the Treasury noted.

As we reported earlier, the Defense Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu invited U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper to a military parade in Moscow’s Red Square that is expected to take place on June 24. 

The parade is set to mark the 75th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two. It was postponed from the actual anniversary on May 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ministry did not provide information on whether Ester had accepted the invitation.
