MOSCOW, Apr 11 (PRIME) -- The Russian rubleТs slide accelerated after the U.S. President Donald TrumpТs threat to Russia on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

УRussia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia because they will be coming, nice and new and Уsmart!Ф he said.

The MOEX Russia Index added 0.18% and the RTS fell 2.73% as of 2:32 p.m. Moscow time.
