Eurobond holders can get payments from this account upon producing the relevant application and after passing the verification procedure the government's and the central bank's resolution No.643/20 of 26 September 2022 stipulates.
The Finance Ministry reminded that Belarus has to honor commitments on eurobonds in this manner due to the sanctions that had been enforced against the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus as the fiscal agent of the Belarusian government.
