Financial and stock market analyst Stepan Demura spoke about the US plan to make the dollar at 125 rubles. He is quoted by Vechernyaya Moskva.
According to Demura, the US authorities have a rather “indirect relationship” to the dynamics of the ruble, but they confirm “the goals long ago outlined by Washington.”
“First, make a dollar at 87 rubles, then at 95, and then 125 and beyond,” the expert warned. The analyst did not specify when the US wants to implement its plan to undermine the Russian currency. He added that there is a risk of “very rapid inflation”.
Earlier, the expert of “BCS World of Investments” Mikhail Zeltser called the opening date for the ruble “second wind”. Zeltser noted that now it is difficult to make any forecasts due to the uncertain situation in the economy and international politics, however, “with a calm external background, a strong ruble can be observed this fall.”
In March, the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina said that the Russian economy will recover to the level it was before the coronavirus pandemic this year.
