MOSCOW, Oct 3 (Reuters) - The head of Russia's central bank, Elvira Nabiullina, said on Monday that a move to make her personally responsible for monetary policy was "a standard decision, taken in many countries in the world."
Nabiullina added that far-reaching changes to banking regulation were needed to solve problems in the sector.
As part of those changes, the central bank will establish a standalone department that will oversee the closure and financial rehabilitation of banks and other financial institutions. (Reporting by Alexander Winning and Andrey Ostroukh; Editing by Christian Lowe)
