УStabilized geopolitical background allowed investors to buy assets, which earlier fell in price significantly. The week ends on a positive note,Ф Vladislav Silayev of Alfa Capital said.

УThe Russian stocks went up in price moderately mainly thanks to the blue chips of the stock market,Ф Yegor Zhilnikov of PSB Bank said.
