REUTERS/Shamil Zhumatov/File Photo () – Russia is reviewing adjustments to its forex controls to avoid situations where the ruble diverges from a shadow market from official levels, central bank governor Elvira Nabiullina said Thursday. “We’re looking at how we can adjust forex controls for importers so they can buy (foreign currency) on the exchange, for those interested in FX,” Nabiullina said. (This story corrects to say that the central bank is not looking for new forex controls, but for ways to modify the existing ones)
