Futures price for WTI crude oil for July fell to 43.4 $ per barrel. Quotes Brent traded at the lowest level since November 29, WTI – since 14 November last year.

Amid falling oil prices weakened the ruble. The Euro rose more than the ruble and the dollar for the first time since mid-March rose above 59 rubles.

As noted by Interfax, the main source of negativity is the concern that the actions of OPEC will be useless in reducing global fuel reserves.
