The Bank of Russia unexpectedly raised the key rate for the market by 75 bps at once

Unexpectedly for the market, the Bank of Russia raised the key rate by 75 bps at once, to 7.5% per annum. The main arguments in favor of such a decision were the distance of inflation from the target 4%, the predominance of pro-inflationary risks, increased inflation expectations, and the return of the economy to a balanced growth trajectory.
