Medvedev is holding a meeting of his Cabinet also attended by the heads of energy giants Rosneft (ROSN.MM) and Gazprom (GAZP.MM), as well as the central bank’s Governor Elvira Nabiullina.

Interfax also quoted Medvedev as saying the rouble’s exchange rate was out of the comfort zone for the economy and that the current situation on the forex market was largely linked to the behaviour of Russian exporters.
