In addition to monetary policy steps, a letter to a balanced economic program that controls inflation expectations and worsening price behavior says that inflation levels and global uncertainty retain risks to price stability and require a cautious political approach.
In the letter we wrote down:
“In the coming period, the CBR will continue to use all its instruments in accordance with the main goal of price stability. It is expected that when forming a monetary policy position, inflation will continue to decline by a single figure, and then come close to the inflation target of 5 percent. The CBR will closely monitor the development of other factors affecting the CBT, and if necessary, an additional tightening of monetary policy can be achieved.
Inflation was again effective in a downtrend. A tough monetary policy position and continued close policy coordination are crucial for reducing inflation stiffness, limiting risks with regard to pricing behavior and achieving inflation targets. According to this view, it is expected that the perception of risk will continue to improve, and the channel of trust and credit channel will gradually support economic recovery.
The CBR will continue to support structural studies to ensure price stability. Continuing to reduce volatility and the volatility of inflation will greatly contribute to price stability and social welfare. In this context, the CBRT will continue its efforts to facilitate the analysis of structural elements and the creation of macroprudential policies.
