The strengthening of the ruble helped Russia to slow down the rate of inflation. About this to the correspondent IA REGNUM On June 30, the economist said Vasily Koltashov.
“The appreciation of the Russian currency stopped the inflationary storm, or rather the penetration of the external inflationary storm into the domestic market. In Russia, there was a price increase, it was significant, but due to the strengthening of the ruble, it was stopped.Koltashov said.
In the case of an artificial undervaluation of the ruble in Russia, we should expect a resumption of price growth, the economist added.
