Russia’s inflation rises, as rouble falls

Russia’s inflation is estimated to hit about 11.4% in 2014, as rouble continues to plunge.

Consumer prices rose 2.6% in December, a month when the rouble suffered some of its steepest falls.

The Western sanctions and cheap oil price have driven down the value of the rouble, resulting in higher prices of the imports.

Russia’s actions in Ukrain have resulted in more sanctions from the West that have hit the banking sector by cutting off foreign lending. On the other hand, a fall in the price of oil has cut revenues earned by the government.

The government is injecting cash into the economy to help the banks strengthen its capital structure and help boost lending to important projects.
