Russia central bank says it considered rouble in key rate decision

MOSCOW, July 29 (Reuters) - Russia's central bank said on Friday it had taken the rate of the rouble into account when making a decision to hold its main lending rate unchanged.

The bank had earlier cited the need to maintain moderately tight monetary policy, even though inflation was falling in line with its forecasts.
