MOSCOW, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Russia’s central widened its exchange-rate corridor for the rouble by 2 roubles to 9 roubles starting from Monday to allow the currency more flexibility, it said in a statement.

The rouble was about 0.2 percent stronger against both the dollar and the euro at 0605 GMT after the central bank altered its exchange-rate policy. (Reporting by Katya Golubkova and Alexander Winning; Editing by Christian Lowe)
