There is a cessation of its steady strengthening, as indicated by the volatility of consumer prices observed this month. According to the head of the Central Bank opinion, the inflation rate this month may overcome the projected upper mark of 7.9%. Nabiullina draws attention to the fact that temporary and short-term fluctuations in inflation cannot become a decisive basis for interest rate decisions.
