Before the Bank of Russia key rate was introduced in September 2013 ({RREFKANN Index DES} or {RREFKEYR Index DES}), this refinancing rate was commonly regarded as the main indicator of the monetary policy stance. However, even then its operational importance was low since the Bank of Russia provided only a small amount of funds at the refinancing rate. The Bank of Russia plans to adjust its refinancing rate to match the key rate level by 1 January 2016. Prior to this date it will only be of secondary importance. The transition period will be used to amend contracts and regulatory acts which involve the refinancing rate.
