On Wednesday, August 22, the USA has to enter the first block of new anti-Russian sanctions of the Photo: depositphotos.com Is updated 20:42centrobank after more than week break again buys currency for the Ministry of Finance. It follows from data on the regulator website. The Central Bank stopped purchases because of volatility in the market and sharp ruble depreciation after the announcement of the preparing new sanctions of the USA against Russia. The American State Department has reported about intention to introduce new restrictions late at night on August 8, and already next day the Central Bank has cut day purchases by half, and from August 10 to August 17 at all didn't carry out them. On Monday, August 20, the Central Bank has directed 17,5 billion rubles to acquisition of currency. It is unlikely all this will put the strong pressure upon ruble, the independent analyst Dmitry Stepanov:dmitry Stepanov the independent analyst "Considers the market now quite strongly has calmed down, and that dynamics on ruble which has passed earlier, will quite positively affect our economy because the financial period of 2018 comes to an end, it is even possible to sum up already some results, and, certainly, courses which were earlier, quite high on ruble and our economy.

However It should be noted that after all situations from the point of view of the same geopolitics different. At the moment it makes sense to speak about two packages of sanctions. The first will be costituted on August 22, the market knows about him. It is not such serious story for the Russian market as, first, it is difficult to say that it will influence all economy - it is more likely pressure tool, but from the point of view of economy of any serious sag we don't see.
