MOSCOW, March 3 Russia's finance ministry has
started saving foreign currency to meet non-rouble budget
liabilities, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Friday.
Siluanov said his ministry had started putting money aside
this month and that the current rouble exchange rate was
attractive from the point of view of settling foreign currency
It was unclear from Siluanov's words if the finance ministry
has started carrying out extra FX interventions on top of its
existing daily purchases of dollars.
