MOSCOW- The Russia-led Eurasian Fund for Stabilization and Development said on Monday it was lending Tajikistan $50 million over a 20-year-period to combat the economic impact of the coronavirus crisis on the Central Asian country.

The former Soviet republic said last month that its economic growth had slowed in the first half of the year because of the pandemic.
