The Russian ruble rose in value against the dollar on news of Russia's decision to start selling natural gas for export in rubles.

According to RIA Novosti , during trading on March 22, the dollar rolled back beyond the “psychologically significant” level of 100 rubles and fell to 95 rubles and below. However, by the end of the auction, it again rose slightly above the hundred-ruble mark.

“The dollar exchange rate with settlements“ tomorrow ”at 15.37 Moscow time fell by 2 rubles - to 101.55 rubles, the euro exchange rate - by 2.85 rubles, to 111.65 rubles," the news agency notes, citing data from the Moscow Exchange.

Recall that on the eve of the official dollar exchange rate reached 116 rubles, and at the auction it rose to 150 rubles and more.

The minimum value of the dollar during the day was 94.99 rubles, euro 109.7 rubles.

According to Putin, under the current conditions it makes no sense to receive money in foreign currency. Putin gave the Central Bank and the Cabinet one week to execute this order.

Earlier it was reported that against the backdrop of the start of the military special operation of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine, announced by Putin on February 24, Western countries imposed economic sanctions against Russia, which led to the collapse of the ruble and significant difficulties in the banking sector and many other sectors of the economy.

With hundreds of Western firms refusing to work with Russia, there were interruptions in the supply of socially important goods and a rapid rise in prices in the country.

At the same time, the economic problems of the Russian Federation returned like a boomerang to a number of Western manufacturers.

In particular, the Finnish media industry was on the verge of ending newspaper printing . This is due to the acute shortage of paper, part of which was imported from the Russian Federation. With the start of the special operation and sanctions, the supplies stopped.
