KIEV Jan 27 (Reuters) - Ukraine's government said on Monday it was extending a $3 billion eurobond for purchase by Russia by a further $2 billion under a $15 billion bail-out package offered by Moscow.

The government said in a statement that the terms would be the same as the $3 billion bond issued in December, meaning it would be over two years at an interest rate of 5 percent.
