Negative comments after RussiaЦNATO talks drag stocks downwards

MOSCOW, Jan 13 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market decreased significantly on Thursday on the back of negative comments of Russian officials following negotiations with NATO, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index dropped 4.05% to 3,674.73 and the RTS slid 5.94% to 1,516.99.

УThe MOEX Russia and the RTS indices accelerated their fall at the end of the main trading session after comments of the Russian side on the results of the RussiaЦNATO talks, which have not given much ground for optimism,Ф Veles Broker analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said.

Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov warned Ukraine and Western states against a military solution of the Donbass problem, and President Vladimir PutinТs spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that possible sanctions against Putin can lead to a break of the relations between the states, she added.

Senior analyst at financial supermarket Banki.Ru Bogdan Zvarich said that the external environment was positive, which partially prevented the local market from a deeper decrease.†

The nearest Brent oil futures added 0.3% to slightly below U.S. $85, European bourses were seen mixed, and the main U.S. benchmarks grew by 0.3% in the first minutes of trading.
