On Friday, the Russian central bank once again raised interest rates, increasing them by 2.0 percentage points to 15.0%. This decision was made to ensure price stability, as consumer prices are rising faster than expected, and government spending is expected to remain high for a longer duration. The central bank announced that interest rates would remain high for a considerable period, and monetary policy would remain restrictive to keep the economy in check. This measure aims to control inflation and maintain economic stability.
