Russia's Ruble Resumes Fall as Tax Period Passes

Russia's ruble slumped over 6 percent against the dollar in early trade on Monday in thin trade, as exporters scaled back their sales of foreign currency after having accumulated enough rubles to meet end-of-month tax payments.

At 10:39 a.m. in Moscow, the ruble was around 6.3 percent weaker versus the dollar at 57.42. It lost 6 percent to trade at 70.00 versus the euro.

… 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.
