MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Russia's financial and macroeconomic situation is being stabilized as intended, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Thursday in an interview with RT.
"We have managed to stabilize inflation. We hope that the measures that were taken last year and are being taken now will make it possible to stabilize the macroeconomic situation, the financial situation, this year as well. This year we see that so far everything is going according to plan," the minister said.
He added that the stability of the macroeconomic situation was certainly "influenced by the fact that we have a system of floating exchange rate and targeted inflation."
