With the start of the special operation in Ukraine, the Central Bank took measures to limit the sale of Russian securities, in particular to prohibit transactions on behalf of non-residents. In March, a list of hostile countries was compiled, which included the states of the European Union, as well as the United States, Ukraine, Japan and a number of other Western countries.
Since mid-August, such clients have been allowed to trade on the bond market. In addition, non-resident customers associated with non-hostile countries but under the control of Russian legal entities or individuals were allowed to trade in shares other than strategic and a number of other enterprises’ securities.
