Today, the currency market, the weakening of the ruble has accelerated. The ruble has updated lows against foreign currencies over the two and a half years. The dollar exchange rate reached 69 rubles, and the Euro – 80 RUB.
Note that this is solely domestic history – the other currencies are strengthening against the dollar. While continuing fall in government bond – the yield on 10-year OFZ bonds exceeded 9%. The fall of the ruble has accelerated after 15 hours GMT, when the European Commission announced the possible sanctions against Russia as “case Skrypalia”. If not declared a major expansion of sanctions against Russia, a strong weakening of the ruble will not be – there are no prerequisites.
