Andrei Kochetkov, an analyst at Otkritie Broker, said that a live Q&A conference of President Vladimir Putin with the Russians did not influence the market trends.

Sofya Kirsanova, an analyst at managing company Raiffeisen Capital, said: УOn Thursday, June 7, dynamics of the Russian stock market became positive after two days of insignificant correction thanks to firming Western floors and growing oil prices,Ф
