Today's trading on the Russian stock market opened amid growth reports from the majority of Russian companies. Shares of RAO UES and Rostelecom appeared to be the leaders of the rally since the first moment of trading. At present, the market is trying to surge further, despite the futures on US stock indices and oil prices losing their positions.

The demand for RAO UES's stocks as well as shares of Uralsvyazinform and some second-tier energy stocks may remain unchanged.
