The morning of June 24 at the Moscow stock exchange the dollar strengthened from three rubles, reaching 65,75 ruble. The value of the Euro was virtually unchanged compared with the previous day and stood at the level 72,73 of the ruble. In turn, the MICEX index fell by three percent, and RTS — more than five percent.

The stock markets of other countries showed a much larger drop. Stock index of great Britain FTSE-100 and France’s CAC has fallen by almost nine percent. The German DAX fell by ten percent. Japanese Nikkei decreased by eight percent. The fall show indexes in China on the Shanghai stock exchange Shanghai Composite, Shenzhen, Shenzhen Composite index and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index.
