  • USD/RUB trades +0.60% higher this morning, broadly in line with the pullback in oil prices.
  • Comments from Ryabkov yesterday against all out war saw the cross fall sharply, but failed to hold below 76.00.
  • This is largely due to little change in the overall status quo as we await written responses from the West – which represent a more important indicator of the longevity of negotiations.
  • In the meanwhile, troops continue to move to Belarus ahead of military drills in Feb - keeping tensions high.
  • Comments from Biden pushing back on Ukraine’s NATO membership will be well-received by Russia, but it seems that Russia boots on Ukrainian soil are the trigger for US sanctions.
  • The cross is currently pegged in a broad range between 75.5827-77.1812 – driven by global risk sentiment and geopolitical headline risks.
  • Intraday Sup1: 76.015, Sup2: 75.5872, Res1: 77.878, Res2: 77.1812
