MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s economy ministry expects annual inflation to accelerate to 3.2-3.3 percent in September from 3.1 percent in August, it said on Tuesday.

The weak ruble, which has fallen to levels last seen in March 2016, added 0.1 percentage points to August’s inflation reading, it said in a monthly report.
