Papers of the largest Russian gold miner, with short breaks, have been declining since the beginning of May last year. In recent days, the rollback of Polyus shares has noticeably increased, which is associated with the discussion by European politicians of the possibility of imposing restrictions on gold from Russia as part of the seventh package of EU sanctions, said Alexey Golovinov, a leading analyst at PSB.
Pressure on Polyus shares was also exerted by the news about the reduction in gold exports from Russia in March-April 2022 to 100 kg from 27.5 tons in February, as well as the expectation that a strong ruble would negatively affect the company’s financial results. In addition, investors expect capex to rise in order to start production at the recently acquired Chulbatkan project by the end of 2025.

Ruble’s exchange rate
The dollar rose slightly during the trading session on June 23: according to the results of trading, the dollar / ruble pair amounted to ₽53.465, which is 0.59% more than the day before.
According to Igor Galaktionov, an expert at BCS World of Investments, there are prerequisites indicating that demand for foreign currency will increase in the coming months. In particular, the State Duma approved a bill on parallel imports – that is, the purchase of goods through intermediaries, and not directly from manufacturers.
“The recovery of imports means a reduction in the trade surplus and higher demand for the currency. Now it is difficult to assess the quantitative effect, but the volumes may be tangible for the market,” the expert wrote.

A new law on the ability to pay debts on Eurobonds in rubles may also work against the ruble, Andrey Kochetkov, a leading analyst at Otkritie Investments, believes. Payments will be transferred in rubles, but recipients will be able to convert them into foreign currency without restrictions and withdraw them abroad.
“These are not large volumes to have a significant impact on the dynamics of the ruble, but they will make a small contribution to balancing the market,” said Igor Galaktionov from BCS World of Investments.
In the meantime, the main driver of the ruble remains the tax period, against which Russian exporters sell foreign currency in order to pay taxes in rubles.

Default (from the French de fault – due to fault) – a situation that has arisen when the borrower fails to fulfill obligations to pay or service debt.
