|The national stock company Naftogaz of Ukraine plans to issue USD300-500 mln worth of eurobonds in 2005 and place them on US market, as announced to the press by Igor Voronin, Deputy CEO, Naftogaz of Ukraine.|

In late September 2004 Naftogaz of Ukraine placed 5-year eurobonds worth USD500 mln at 8.125% p.a.
ABN Amro (Netherlands) managed the deal.
