VLADIVOSTOK, Russia, Sept 12 (Reuters) - Russian Economy
Minister Maxim Oreshkin said on Wednesday the rouble has
"seriously deviated" from fundamental levels but he expected it
to firm to 63-64 roubles to the U.S. dollar in December this
Oreshkin, who was speaking on the sidelines of the Eastern
Economic Forum, said he did not expect positive surprises for
Russia's economic growth in the third and fourth quarters due to
higher financial market volatility. He said gross domestic
product growth in each of the two quarters was unlikely to
exceed 1.9 percent.
