Russian Foreign Exchange Market: Unveiling the Shifting Landscape | The Gaze
The Russian foreign exchange market is undergoing a profound transformation, with foreign investors notably absent, reminiscent of the mid-1990s.

In a striking change, the dominance of the dollar and euro has waned, making room for the yuan and various other currencies. The move away from the dollar and euro in transactions, coupled with the reduced share of hard currency, stands as a pivotal factor influencing the weakening of the rouble. Join us as we dissect these developments and their implications.
