MOSCOW, May 26 (PRIME) -- The Russian central bank has reduced the key rate by 3 percentage points to 11% at an extraordinary meeting of the board of directors on Thursday, the regulator said in a statement.

УThe board of directors of the central bank has decided to decrease the key rate by 300 basis points to 11% annually from Friday. The latest weekly data has showed significant deceleration of the current growth of prices,Ф the statement read.
