Market participants directly link the weakening of the ruble with the statements of representatives of the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance regarding the undesirability of an excessively strong Russian currency.

According to the head of the analytical department of Zenit Bank Vladimir Evstifeev, this is both a possible rejection of ruble investments in favor of foreign ones, and the intention of investors to convert money received as part of payments on sovereign Eurobonds back into foreign currency.
