There are no conditions for the ruble to start strengthening in the short term is oil prices stay at current levels, Andrei Klepach, a former deputy economic development minister and currently deputy head of Vnesheconombank (VEB), told reporters.
"The ruble does usually recover after a lengthy period of decline. But I don't think the conditions are right for this today, because capital outflow, I think, has surged, and secondly, oil is still a little on the low side," Klepach said.
