MOSCOW, May 29 (Reuters) - The Russian central bank said on Monday that inflation expectations among households started rising again in May.
The share of respondents in a poll who think that 2017 inflation will significantly exceed 4 percent rose to 59 percent in May, up from an all-time low of 55 percent seen in April, the central bank said.
Higher inflation expectations usually limit room for rate cuts as the central bank has shown a strong commitment to bring inflation down to a post-Soviet low of 4 percent and keep it close to that level. (Reporting by Elena Fabrichnaya; Writing by Andrey Ostroukh; Editing by Alexander Winning)
