Markets Stable Following Crimea Vote

The Moscow equity markets opened up Monday morning and were still in the black by midday. The ruble denominated MICEX index was up 0.59 percent, and the dollar denominated RTS index was up 0.55 percent at 12:30 Moscow time.

Both the Euro and Dollar were trading up versus the ruble, at 50.98 and 36.72, respectively at the same time.

Analysts said an EU meeting in Brussels to discuss the Crimea referendum and sanctions against Russia, which is scheduled for later in the day on Monday, could influence market movement.

… 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.
