Sanctions on Moscow Stock Exchange Will Have Short Term Effect – US Investor

By Sputnik International


WASHINGTON, June 29 (Sputnik) – Legendary American investor Jim Rogers told Sputnik after the United States imposed sanctions on the Moscow Exchange (MOEX) that sanctions normally do not have much impact except in the short term, and will be eventually lifted.
When asked whether the sanctions against MOEX will affect the investment climate in Russia, Rogers said: “Sanctions – I have learned over history – sanctions usually do not have much effect except short term.”
“When a country has sanctions, of course, many people stay out of that country or do not invest in that country. So this will happen in Russia, it has happened.

On the same day, MOEX said it was halting trading in dollars and euros starting June 13.
Starting June 13, the Bank of Russia began setting the exchange rates for these currencies based on reporting data from credit institutions and the results of interbank conversion transactions in the over-the-counter FX market as of 15:30 Moscow time on business days.
The Russian central bank is able to ensure stability in all markets, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
