The exchange rate of the Russian currency rose today, Tuesday, against the dollar and the euro, offsetting some of the losses it incurred in the previous period, and the rise came in light of high oil prices in global markets.
The dollar’s exchange rate decreased by 41 kopecks (one ruble = 100 kopeks) to 74.25 rubles, while the euro’s exchange rate declined by 57 kopecks to 90.23 rubles, Novosti reported.
The rise in the ruble coincided with the rise in oil prices on world markets, and according to “Novosti” agency, “Brent” rose by 0.5% to $ 55.92 a barrel.
