” RUSSIA INFLATION AT 2.2% IN January 2018″
The Bank of Russia expects that annual inflation will remain at a low level and will gradually return to 4%. This will be supported by both the exhaustion of the effect of temporary factors and increased internal demand as the Bank of Russia moves from a moderately tight to neutral monetary policy.
