Russia's Putin warns against rushing into interest rate cut

MOSCOW, March 16 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday cutting interest rates too early and without grounds could lead to higher inflation and could cost a great deal.

The comments, made at a business forum, came after the country’s central bank said inflation had eased faster than expected, potentially paving the way for an interest rate cut in the first half of 2017.
