The Central Bank announced the sharpest increase in the key rate since 2014

 The Central Bank announced the sharpest increase in the key rate since 2014

The regulator will increase it to 6.5%.

The central bank announced its decision to raise the key rate immediately to 6.5%, by one percentage point, as a result, the growth is recognized by experts as the highest since 2014.

Recall that then the Central Bank, against the background of the devaluation of the ruble and the growth of inflation, increased it from 10.5 to 17%.

The same applies to the inflation forecast, which was 5.7-6.2% at the end of 2021, according to the Central Bank’s website.

At the same time, it is predicted that the price growth will return to the pre-pandemic level, to 4 -4.5% only next year.

Analysts of the Central Bank note that the return of the Russian economy in the second quarter of the year to the level that was demonstrated before the outbreak of the epidemic led to a gap between output and growing demand.

This, in turn, affected the upward deviation of inflation from the target of 4%, and the slowdown in the recession.

The regulator’s statement says that the Central Bank assumes a further increase in the rate. The expediency of such decisions will be evaluated at the next meeting of the Board of Directors.

Recall, as RBC wrote, earlier market analysts predicted an increase in the key rate, which was fixed at the level of 0.5 & # 8211; 1 point. The most accurate forecast was given by Bloomberg, assuming that the growth will be 1 percentage point, which happened.

It is known that in June, the price increase in Russia amounted to 6.5%, which was the highest value since 2016. So, for example, compared to May, potatoes increased in price by 20.3%, building materials by 23.9%.

In July, growth slowed down, which is why Rosstat reported deflation of 0.01%.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that in the spring of last year, Russian banks announced an increase in mortgage rates and deposits.

 Russians were warned about the autumn rise in the price of clothing and shoes

RBC referred to the gloomy forecasts of experts.

Retailers of retail chains of the Russian Federation report a likely increase in prices for clothing and shoes, which may occur as early as this autumn and next winter. The minimum price increase will be 10%.

According to RBC, after interviewing experts, the maximum price increase will be 15%. This is the opinion of the head of the Baon network Ilya Yaroshenko. Another expert, the head of “Gloria Jeans” Vladimir Melnikov predicts a price increase in early 2022 to 18 & # 8211; 20%.

All retailers believe that the price increase is inevitable due to the rise in the cost of logistics and raw materials. Thus, the founder and one of the owners of the Zenden Group, Andrey Pavlov, said that, according to his calculations, only deliveries from Asian countries (China) to Europe increased in price by 5-6 times.

As for the rise in the price of raw materials, cotton has risen by 35% since January of this year. Melnikov said that the cost of things used in the manufacture of petroleum products has increased.

The publication reports that the spending of Russians on the minimum school enrollment has also increased by 13%, as of mid-July it is estimated at 12,900 rubles.

On average, a ready-made set of schoolchildren (pencils, pens, stationery) has increased in price by 6% since the beginning of the year and costs 690 rubles.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Moscow is threatened not only by an increase in food prices, but also by a shortage of goods.

The trade union of Russian taxi drivers warned of a “collapse in the market”

 The trade union of Russian taxi drivers warned about the

Experts blame the new driver registration system.

The interregional trade union & # 8220;Taxi Driver & #8221; warned the Moscow authorities that the planned introduction of the CIS “Art” (Integrated information system “Taxi Work Analytics”) in the city and region is capable of provoking a collapse in the market ”.

It is known that the organization consists of two thousand drivers and taxi companies.

According to Forbes, the head of the trade union Yaroslav Shcherbinin sent a letter about this to the prime minister Mikhail Mishustin, the head of Roskonadzor Andrey Lipov and the Ministry of Transport Vitaly Saveliev, as well as to the mayor of the capital Sergey Sobyanin.

The CIS will have to monitor the work of taxi drivers, their compliance with the rest schedule, regular medical examinations, paperwork, payment of fines and the absence of criminal records for serious crimes.

Those who ignore the CIS checks will not be allowed to work in the capital and the Moscow region from August 1, and they will not be able to turn on through aggregators.

According to Sherbinin and the experts of the trade union, taxi companies will need significant financial injections, and there will be fewer drivers, because not everyone will be able to overcome the difficulties and barriers of registration in the CIS. Finally, due to the revision of the drivers ‘ work schedule, their earnings will fall.

The trade union suggests not to introduce the system without checking its operation in the pilot mode. This will allow market participants to connect to the CIS gradually.

Also, & #8220;The taxi driver & #8221; suggests at the initial stage to freeze the system of fines for “improper” data transfer to the CIS.

At the same time, the media reports that the system will be launched in 10 days, but many of the taxi drivers have still not been able to connect to the CIS, although they have been trying to do this for two weeks in a row.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that artists Nikolai Baskov and Igor Matvienko reported the departure of many colleagues and participants of the show market in a taxi during the pandemic.

This is how they reacted to the cancellation of mass events that provoked serious financial losses.

 The USA and Germany have agreed on the

Insiders announced an increase in funding for Ukrainian energy.

The media, citing their sources, say that the United States and Germany managed to resolve the differences that arose on the Nord Stream 2 project.

So, according to the Reuters news agency, last week German Chancellor Angela Merkel held talks with Joe Biden, discussing the Nord Stream-2 and the impact of the launch of the project on Russian-Ukrainian relations.

According to Merkel, the positions of the two countries on this issue were different. Thus, Germany believes that the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine will not stop, and SP-2 will not replace the Kiev transit.

According to sources, & #8220;everything looks good”, and the negotiations will be completed soon.

The second insider said that the United States and Germany are close to an agreement that blocks the possibility of new American sanctions on the project, which could be addressed to the project operator Nord Stream 2 AG and its director Matthias Warnig.

Both countries also intend to better finance the Ukrainian energy sector and monitor the country’s energy security.

It is still unknown how the intentions will be carried out. Both state financing and the use of private sources are possible.

As Topnews wrote,“ & #8221;SP-2” – these are two lines of the pipeline for 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year, which are laid from the Russian coast through the Baltic Sea to Germany.

The project has repeatedly become the subject of conflict between the Russian Federation and Western countries, which is why the construction of the gas pipeline has been stopped more than once.
