Pres aide: Russian monetary policy too tough, inflation drops fast

MOSCOW, Jul 11 (PRIME) Ц Rapid decline of Russian inflation means that the monetary policy is too severe, presidential aide Andrei Belousov told reporters on Thursday.

The gross domestic product (GDP) is to grow by 1% in JanuaryЦJune and the rise can exceed the official forecast of 1.3% in 2019 as the monetary policy can ease, he said.

УThe GDP in the first half of the year has almost been assessed, we only have to complete the calculation. I think, it will be about 1%,Ф Belousov said. УThe central bank must decide independently. But if the easing policy is cautious and takes into account the effect on the exchange rate fluctuations of the rubleЕ This must have an effect.Ф
