Bank Faces Scrutiny

MOSCOW -- The Finance Ministry will be in charge of securities issues by the Central Bank, Interfax quoted First Deputy Finance Minister Oleg Vyugin as saying Tuesday after a meeting with First Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Khristenko.

Vyugin said the Central Bank is expected to begin issuing securities in mid-September and the issue would be as large as needed to regulate money circulation, Interfax reported.
