Recall that oil prices are stabilizing against the backdrop of the largest-ever OPEC + deal to reduce production, as well as due to the restoration of demand for raw materials due to the lifting of restrictions in the context of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Following the rise in oil prices, the Russian market also began a gradual recovery.
