MOSCOW, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Peaceful settlement of Ukraine’s crisis will improve the situation on Russia’s stocks, says Irina Prokhorova, leader of Civil Platform and sister of the opposition party founder and businessman-turned-politician Mikhail Prokhorov.
She expressed confidence that all countries would seek peaceful settlement, as “nobody needs another crisis.”
Russia’s stocks tumbled on Monday, although the Central Bank hiked its key lending rate to 7% from 5.5 percent. Russia’s MICEX index dropped by 11.05% to 1,285.21 points, what had become its minimum since July 2013. The RTS index declined by 9.4% to 1,122.6 points, its minimum since September 2009.
