On Cutting Interest Rate Down to 15%

The Bank of Russia dropped the interest rate from 17% to 15% as a result of the meeting on January 30. By doing so, the Central Bank took the cue from Business Russia Public Organization, which had earlier called on the regulator to cut down on the key monetary policy instrument. The Central Bank explained its decision by the changing balance of risks of consumer price index acceleration and economic slowdown. "The Bank of Russia decided to hike the interest rate on December 15, 2014, which has normalized inflation and depreciation expectations to the extent anticipated by the Bank of Russia. The existing surge of inflation has been caused by the expedited price adjustment to the weakening ruble and is therefore time-bound. Further on, the inflationary pressure is going to be held back by reducing the level of economic activity," says the formal message on the Bank of Russia's official website.
