MOSCOW, April 13 (Reuters) - If new sanctions are imposed on Russia, then the central bank will try to mitigate the risks, the bank's First Deputy Governor Ksenia Yudayeva said on Thursday.
Yudayeva added that the central bank did not rule out moving its key rate by more than 25 basis points when it meets on monetary policy later this month, repeating what Governor Elvira Nabiullina has said.
Yudayeva also told journalists that the central bank was taking measures to ensure that inflation stayed near the central bank's target of 4 percent in 2018-2019. (Reporting by Elena Fabrichnaya; Writing by Alexander Winning; Editing by Christian Lowe)
