MOSCOW, December 28. /TASS/. The dollar exchange rate against the ruble has increased in the course of trading on the Moscow Exchange in comparison with the previous closing trading by 1.31 rubles to 71.99 rubles, renewing the maximum of January (71.64 rubles).
The dollar has not been that expensive since December 2014.
In addition, the euro gained 1.52 rubles and reached 79.05 rubles, surpassing the mark of 79 rubles for the first time since August.
The ruble is depreciating after oil. The cost of a futures contract of Brent crude with the delivery in February on London Stock Exchange ICE fell 1.74% to 37.23 dollars per barrel on Monday.
"Oil is again under a discreet pressure following Iran declaration that it is ready to increase supplies by 0.5 mln barrels per day after the sanctions against it are lifted. This is no longer a news but it turned out to be enough for such a sensitive market,"- Dmitry Savchenko, an oil analyst with Nordea Bank said.
