Interest rates on deposits in Russia will grow and will again begin to “steadily cover inflation,” said the chairman of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina. At the presidium of the United Russia faction in the State Duma, she said that Russian banks had already restructured loans worth more than 7 trillion rubles.
“The return of our policy to a neutral level will raise the rates on deposits, which decreased last year. They will again steadily cover inflation. And we see how important this problem is, including for pensioners who keep their savings in banks, ”said the head of the Central Bank (quoted from Prime).
