Eurasian Development Bank: Western sanctions' effect on Russia to weaken

The Eurasian Development Bank reported Monday that the Russian Central Bank expects any negative economic impact from Western sanctions to decrease in the next three years.

The bank said Russia's banks will adapt to changing foreign market conditions, allowing the nation to pursue Asian markets and increase domestic investment to boost Russia's economy. This plan is already in the works, as it has been a portion of the policy guidelnes for monetary regulation for 2015 through 2017.

The measures from this year will remain intact for 2015, but they will allow the maximum inflation variance to be 4 percent — barring any additional sanctions or geopolitical tensions.

The central bank's efforts in refinancing credit organizations aims to stabilize the domestic currency and encourage separate loan markets.

Sanctions from the West have adversely affected loan activty and effectively closed foreign markets in the latter half of this year.
