Bank of Russia

The Bank of Russia or the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (CBR) is the Russian central bank. The bank is independent of federal and local government and is the institution which issues the Russian currency - the rouble - in Russia and is responsible for the stability and circulation of the currency. The central bank is also responsible for defining and implementing national monetary policy. This happens in collaboration with the Russian government. The key rate is an important tool to influence interbank interest rates and with that the level of inflation. For an overview of current inflation in Russia, click here or here for current inflation by country. Another important task is to supervise Russian financial instructions and issue or retract banking licences. The CBR is also responsible for the rules and guidelines in the area of banking. If Russian financial institutions do not have sufficient funds in times of crisis, the central bank will provide loans. The bank also controls the foreign currency reserves and is responsible for rules on the trade in foreign currencies. Finally the Central Bank of the Russian Federation is also the institution which provides analyses, reports and forecasts relating to the Russian economy.
