According to the Minister of Finance, the behavior of currency depends on different factors and it is impossible to predict him. Experts in reply notice that before decline of ruble the Ministry of Finance Anton Siluanov has made mass interventions in the foreign exchange market. Photo: Sergey of Bobyliov/TASS the Minister of Finance and the first Deputy Prime Minister Anton Siluanov has passed an opinion on ruble exchange rate. "You will never guess, as well as any ordinary people as the currency will behave. She depends on moods, risks recently, sanctions will be imposed, won't be. The second is a rate in the States [a rate of U.S. Fed]. The third is a mood of investors who after the announcement of possible sanctions have begun to leave the Russian assets. The fourth — we with the Central Bank have stopped purchases for reserves, it has influenced strengthening" — Siluanov has told. The minister has added that the Russian government was prepared for new American sanctions, in particular for the ban on purchase of a national debt. According to Siluanov, the authorities have a package of measures how to work in this situation, but he hasn't given a detail. The ruble last week has sharply fallen. It has occurred after the Central Bank for the benefit of the Ministry of Finance has begun to buy currency. And only when the course has exceeded 69 rubles for dollar, the Central Bank has stopped purchases. The statement of the minister on air of Business FM was commented by the CEO Fonda of national energy security Konstantin Simonov: What has caused Siluanov's statement? Perhaps, he tries to calm thus? Konstantin Simonov: In reality we perfectly understand that it is much simpler to execute the budget with such weak ruble. And as the main task which Putin had set for the Cabinet of Ministers is search of money everywhere where it is only possible, and implementation of the budget, they understand that to execute the budget at weak ruble is an ideal situation when still oil expensive. Today the barrel of our oil cost over five thousand rubles. It in general in the history wasn't. And we understand all this, but it is necessary to explain somehow it because there is such strange situation: oil expensive, sanctions not catastrophic, but ruble for some reason falls. I explain why: he falls because so the government solves a problem with the budget. Also solves quite simply. But, on the other hand, of course, questions arise. And here explain to us that the ruble is the ordinary market tool that it is subject to influence of speculators, risks that the ordinary person isn't able to define his course at all. Let him even don't try to make it because he isn't present any it seems as decisions of the government here. There are no intrigues connected with policy of the Central bank. There are elements market where it will bring, not clearly therefore don't try, dear citizens to foretell in what direction the ruble will move. If to speak about sanctions, the Finance Minister has told that some measures of protection and what it can be measures are developed? Konstantin Simonov: Well, in reality it isn't necessary to say so far that sanctions will be applied to a public debt because there is a lot of speculation and there is a lot of expectations, but to us have predicted already much for four
