CMS has advised Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego on a EUR 600 million bond issuance related to providing support to Ukraine.

According to CMS, “the bonds were issued by BGK on behalf of the Aid Fund, created by BGK, and acquired by the European Investment Bank. The bond issue is part of an effort to support Ukraine, based on the Act on supporting Ukraine.”

According to the firm, “an important element of the project is the involvement of officials responsible for parts of government spending, and other parties authorized by the Prime Minister in Poland, in providing and monitoring support for Ukrainian citizens.”

CMS’ team included Counsel Michal Smiechowski and Associates Przemyslaw Kopka and Marcin Krzemien.

CMS did not respond to our inquiry on the matter.
