    Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a planned meeting with the government next week to discuss the economic situation in Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday, currency exchange trading data showed the ruble continuing on a downward spiral, hitting a record low of almost 86 rubles to the dollar and 93 rubles to the euro.

    On Wednesday, when the ruble rate was at 80.5 per dollar, Russia's Central Bank said the currency was close to its fundamental value and there was no risk to financial stability.

    "A meeting with the government will be held next week… There are no emergency events on the president's schedule," Peskov told reporters.

    The Kremlin spokesman said that economic issues might also be discussed during other consultations.
