to the level of 41.80 against a dollar-euro dollar-euro basket
, the boundary of the corridor announced by the central
Earlier on Wednesday, the central bank said the corridor
ranged from 34.80 to 41.80 from Feb. 18. The actual range of the
corridor may differ because the central bank announces shifts a
day after they occur.
When the rouble falls to the edge of the corridor the bank

$400 million a day when it is within 95 kopecks of the edge. The
central bank moves the corridor by five kopecks each time it has
expended $350 million in interventions.
