The weighted average euro exchange rate has amounted to 35.03 RUR/EUR at a special session today. This is just RUR0.02 higher than the official euro rate set by the Russian Central Bank for March 18. The high on the deals was 35.05 RUR/EUR and the low was 35.01 RUR/EUR at the UTS.
Experts attribute this situation on the domestic market to the dollar/euro rate on international exchanges. The euro costs about $1.225 currently, which is in fact the same as it was yesterday.
