A team of technocrats has gone to the central bank to discuss a plan B related to financing and reducing the €5.8bn amount. Please note that Cyprus has asked Russia for a five-year extension of an existing loan of €2.5bn that matures in 2016, and a reduction in the 4.5% interest rate. The European Commission said that it was now up to Cyprus to put forward an alternative rescue plan after its lawmakers voted down the proposed bail-out package.
