After extensive negotiations with his advisers, Donald Trump ordered to postpone the introduction of new economic sanctions against Russia. Previously, new sanctions were announced by the US permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley.
“Trump consulted national security advisers on Sunday night and told them that he was upset that sanctions had been officially announced, as he never finalised plans,” RIA states, referring to the Washington Post.
The Russian currency at the Moscow Stock Exchange grew in value amid such reports. As evidenced by the trading data, as of 21:41 in Moscow, the ruble strengthened against the dollar by 50 cents, to 61.55 rubles, and to the euro – by 39 cents, to 76.16 rubles.
