MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The US presidential elections will not influence ruble value in the long term, Russia's Sberbank CEO German Gref said Tuesday.

"Almost no [influence], the changes in value can go any way. In the long term, I think, this factor holds little importance for value changes," Gref said in response to a question on how the elections in the United States would influence the Russian currency.
