Central Bank Has No Plans to Limit Currency Swaps

The Central Bank is not planning to introduce any limitations on currency swaps in conditions of a liquidity deficit, bank head Elvira Nabiullina said on Thursday.

"Limits were introduced on currency swaps during the 2008-2009 [financial] crisis and market participants are probably worried that we may do this again now ... We believe that in the conditions of a market deficit, this instrument would hold and manage percentage rates so that they remained within the percentage corridor," Nabiullina said during a forum at Moscow's stock exchange.

She said that the volume of currency swaps has grown, but the Central Bank is not concerned.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
