The exchange rate of the Russian currency rose today, Tuesday, against the dollar and the euro, offsetting some of the losses it incurred in the previous period, and the rise came in light of high oil prices in global markets.
By 10:06 Moscow time, the dollar’s exchange rate had fallen by 41 kopecks (one ruble = 100 kopeks) to 74.25 rubles, while the euro’s exchange rate had fallen by 57 kopecks to 90.23 rubles.
The rise in the ruble coincided with the rise in oil prices in world markets. According to “Novosti” agency, the “Brent” mix rose 0.5% to $ 55.92 a barrel.
In the Moscow Stock Exchange, the stock exchange index of stocks denominated in rubles, MICEX, rose to the level of 3520 points, setting historical records.
