Isarescu Says Romania Leu Rise Partly Due to Russia, Ukraine

May 8 (Bloomberg) -- Romanian central bank Governor Mugur Isarescu says the leu appreciation is partly due to capital inflows coming from Russia or Ukraine.

“I don’t think that the central bank wants the leu to appreciate, at least I don’t because I’m not convinced that economic fundamentals support it,” Isarescu said at an event in Bucharest today. “The leu is appreciating and at our border there is gun fire.”

The leu fell 0.2 percent to 4.4340 per euro at 12:12 p.m. in Bucharest today, paring earlier gains, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, after reaching the highest level since October 2013 yesterday.
