[Webinar] Russia: Persistent price pressures justify monetary tightening

Topic: In Russia, recent economic indicators corroborate the narrative of a V-shaped recovery. The authorities are concerned about a mismatch between rapidly recovering demand and lagging supply. In May, headline inflation increased to 6.0% y/y, two percentage points above the CBR’s inflation target. In these circumstances, the CBR’s choice to front-load its monetary tightening is understandable. We expect it to remain in hawkish mode until the year ends.
