The Central Bank of Russia lowers its benchmark rate

  • European Union (EU) leaders have formally agreed to ban coal
  • The ruble rebounds to pre-war levels
  • Reference rates reduced from 20% to 17%

Amid the struggle between Ukraine and Russia, the Russian ruble has found a way to bounce back despite the harsh onslaught against the Russian Federation.

The country’s national bank has found a few ways to protect the country’s liquidity as the Bank of Russia has discovered an appropriate cost for gold and rubles.

In addition, following the fixing of government-issued money to gold, the Russian National Bank on Friday declared an unexpected reduction in the cost of loans starting Monday.

EU leaders create tougher sanctions amid ruble rebound

Towards the end of February, after the start of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, the European Commission and its Western partners imposed severe restrictions on the global stores of the Bank of Russia.

The approvals sparked bank runs and the Russian ruble fell to record lows against the US dollar. As ruthless permits were imposed on Russia, with the conflict actually occurring, the European pioneers wanted to stop imports of Russian coal.

On Friday, the pioneers of the European Union (EU) formally agreed to a coal boycott and current coal contracts with Russia are expected to be scrapped by August. The EU has also restricted imports of caviar, vodka and Russian explicit synthetics, close to fly fuel products.

The Russian National Bank has set the cost of the ruble at 5,000 rubles for one gram of gold. While making a golden tie for public money is something states have done many years before, the formation has generally been abandoned.

An extraordinary number of reviewers believe that the transition to gold parity with the ruble will have a lasting effect on the US dollar. Peering the ruble to gold could make government-issued money attractive in Forex advertisements and attract partners from other countries keen on the gold-backed system.

Russian gas will be paid in rubles only, the Bank of Russia cuts interest rates

On Friday, the Bank of Russia cut the country’s benchmark key rate from 20% to 17%. The rate will become viable on Monday as the national bank said it had changed the balance of dangers to curb expansion.

The external circumstances of the Russian economy are still being tested, imposing impressive financial action, the Russian National Bank said in a statement on Friday. The chances of monetary security are still present, but have ceased to increase for now, including the infeasibility of the capital control measures adopted.

At the moment, Putin and Russia’s ruble is significantly stronger than it was at the start of the conflict, and Luis Saenz, head of global distribution at Sinara, said the Bank of Russia does not think that the energy should stop. The national bank must be a monetary rebound train, not a drag, Saenz said on Friday.
