Lower oil prices to have long-lasting impact: Russian central bank
[MOSCOW] Lower oil prices will have a long-lasting impact on Russia, Central Bank First Deputy Governor Ksenia Yudayeva said on Monday.
The Russian economy is forecast this year to slip into recession for the first time since the aftermath of the global financial crisis in 2009, hit by declining crude prices and sanctions imposed on Moscow over its role in the Ukraine crisis.
The rouble is trading around 40 percent down against the dollar compared to mid-2014.
