Central Bank Bought $1Bln

The Central Bank purchased about $1 billion on the domestic market in the first six trading days of July, Central Bank First Deputy Chairman Alexei Ulyukayev told journalists Monday.

"We bought about $1 billion in the first six trading days," he said, adding that the Central Bank doesn't yet have an exact figure for total purchases.

The Central Bank said previously that it purchased $3.23 billion on the domestic market in June, 17.5 percent less than the $3.92 billion purchased in May, as well as 541.5 million euros, up from 434 million euros. Targeted interventions in June amounted to $2.8 billion and 497 million euros. The Central Bank did not sell any dollars or euros in June.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
