NUSA DUA (Sputnik) - Reduction of the key rate of the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) at the next meeting on October 26 is unlikely, there are many factors for preserving it, but there may be factors in favor of raising it, CBR First Deputy Governor Ksenia Yudaeva told reporters.

"We’ll be watching. I think that a decline is, to put it mildly, unlikely now. In principle, there are many factors for it to remain unchanged," Yudaeva said when asked which options the CBR was considering before the meeting.

According to CBR First Deputy Governor Ksenia Yudaeva, the bank will "still be looking at what information will be about inflation pressure, about the growth of inflation expectations."

"We will follow the situation, look what factors are and maybe for a raise," she said on the sidelines of the annual meetings of the IMF and the World Bank Group.

Russia's ruble has been repeatedly hit over recent years by the impact of Western sanctions as well as falling oil prices, with the double plunge of its exchange rate partly contributing to high inflation.

The central bank reacted by adopting a tough monetary policy and high interest rates with an emphasis on stemming inflation.
