Key Quotes:



“Full details of the new sanctions have not yet been announced, but it is clear that Europe and the US are moving more in sync presently as Europe denies state-owned Russian banks, oil companies and munitions makers the ability to sell news bonds and stocks in Europe."



"Russian bonds are a bit firmer, and the dollar’s gains that had carried it to almost RUB36.0 have been pared”.



“Russian shares up a little more than 2%, recouping much of the ground lost over the past week."
