Moscow's stock markets opened more than three percent higher on Tuesday after plunging over 10 percent the day before in reaction to Russia's military intervention into Ukraine.
By around 0620 GMT, Moscow's MICEX bourse had risen by 3.20 percent while the other main Russian market, the RTS, had risen by 3.30 percent. In the opening minutes they had risen by more than four percent.
The markets regained some ground after their collapse on Monday when the MICEX closed down 10.79 percent and the RTS closed down 12.01 percent.
