Russian stocks close mixed amid global trade disputes uncertainty

The MOEX Russia Index grew 0.05% to 2,321.82 and the RTS fell 0.37% to 1,050.51.

УThe Russian stock indices finished the week neutrally. The sanction risks rose after statements on the Skripals case made by some foreign governments, but investors do not hurry to start sales.

The MOEX Russia Index edged up in the morning, then reversed to the negative territory, and bounced back and consolidated near a 2,320 mark later in the day. †

Kozhukhova said that the U.S. benchmarks were seen mixed, and the sentiment on the European stock exchanges was neutral.
