MOSCOW, Jun 22 (PRIME) -- Russian stocks grew on Friday supported by growing foreign bourses and climbing oil prices, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index firmed 0.17% to 2,249.68 and the RTS increased 1.32% to 1,125.41.

УWe saw growth of the majority of the world stock indices Е Russian stocks followed higher oil prices, and the MOEX Russia Index rose supported by shares of oil and gas companies,Ф Yevgenia Abramovich, head of the currency risks research department at Swiss brokerage house Dukascopy Bank S.A., said.

The Brent oil price gained 2.051% to U.S. $74.58 per barrel as of 5.55 p.m. Moscow time, according to the ICE exchange.

УExpectations of higher production were already priced in by the oil market, so the fact of elimination of uncertainty acted as a positive impact,Ф Anastasiya Sosnova, an analyst at investment company Freedom Finance, said.

Andrei Kochetkov, an analyst at Otkritie Broker, said that a possible meeting between leaders of the U.S. and Russia brings hopes for serious changes for Russian assets in the foreseeable future.

Shares of top bank Sberbank grew 1.92% prior to a dividend cut-off, Kochetkov said.
