She said this during the "government hour" in the Federation Council.

As Matvienko noted, a set of measures aimed at strengthening the economy is needed. According to her, "one increase in the key rate of the Central Bank will not solve the problems."

At the same time, Matvienko stressed, the Russian economy has entered a growth trajectory.

"This suggests that we have overcome the most difficult period, but this does not mean that greenhouse conditions are ahead of us," RIA Novosti quoted her as saying.

Earlier, Minister of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov predicted wage growth in Russia against the backdrop of low unemployment.
