MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. The Central Bank of Russia (CBR) has struck foreign currency swap deals over the sale of US dollars for rubles to the tune of $581.4 million on September 30.
The CBR has started foreign currency swap transactions over the sale of US dollars for rubles with their further purchase since September 17.
