MOSCOW, October 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s consumer price inflation by the end of the year will speed up to 4.1 percent, the first deputy president of the Bank of Russia, Alexei Ulyukayev told the investment forum Russia Calling.
He said the accrued inflation in January-September had reached 4.7 percent. Ulyukayev believes that “as early as this year inflation rates will accelerate.”
In October the growth will measure 0.1 percent a week, and in November and December, 0.2 percent, he said.
