MOSCOW, Mar 6 (PRIME) -- Russian stocks closed mixed on Tuesday on the back of growing oil prices and the rubleТs depreciation against the U.S. dollar after trading positively almost the entire day, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index decreased 0.27% to 2,303.32 and the RTS grew 0.15% to 1,281.43.

УOn Tuesday, despite continuing upward dynamics on foreign markets, our indices demonstrated mixed dynamics shortly before the closure of trading,Ф Freedom Finance senior analyst Bogdan Zvarich said.
