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

She said that investors hope that the G7 countries will be able to counter the U.S. protectionist trade policies after the E.U. has expressed rage with a U.S. intent to introduce steel duties and after the French president said he will not sign a joint G7 statement at a forthcoming summit if U.S. President Donald Trump does not ease his position on the duties.
