Russian Stocks Rise In Early Trading, Day After New Sanctions

Russian shares rose on their opening on Tuesday, a day after a new round of sanctions were imposed by the West on Russian companies and individuals.

Russia's main indexes, the ruble-traded MICEX and the dollar-denominated RTS index, both rose in early trading, up 1.8 percent and 1.1 percent respectively.

Stocks closed up on Monday on relief that no major listed companies were included in the sanctions.

… 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.
