Economy continues to grow modestly, but some indicators warn of a possible slowdown in the speed of the 2nd half. Meanwhile, the Central Bank has suggested that a potential threat to economic recovery in the event of a rate hike now decreased, and a number of representatives MPC noted that over the past few months, the balance of factors in favor of tightening has become more balanced.
