Russia cbank leaves key rates unchanged

MOSCOW, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Russia's central bank kept key interest rates unchanged at its monthly policy meeting on Friday, after hiking rates across the board by 0.25 percent last month.

The central bank kept the fixed one-day repo rate, a de facto ceiling for the money market, unchanged at 6.50 percent, and the overnight deposit rate, a floor for interbank rates, unchanged at 4.25 percent.

The refinancing rate, the cost of overnight loans from the central bank, was held at 8.25 percent.
