MOSCOW, May 25 (Reuters) – The Russia central bank said on Monday it had cancelled a one-month repo auction designed to inject up to 500 billion roubles ($6.99 billion) into the banking system as it received only one bid.

The one-month repo auction was in focus after the central bank said in early May it would offer liquidity to banks at long-term repo auctions for the first time since early 2014 as part of fine-tuning measures to support financial stability amid the coronavirus crisis.
