"It has come in quite unexpectedly", Megatrustoil analyst Alexander Razuvaev has told RIA Novosti. In his opinion, the market may receive this news as a pretext for corrections, especially minding that many shares have already been repurchased.
"A rehabilitation is being observed on the market", Trinfico analyst Yegor Krotkov has told RIA Novosti. "The market will take a respite".
From the strategic viewpoint this event was expectable and this is why, on an average-term perspective, it may not appreciably affect the market, Krotkov believes. And added: "We'll wait for commentaries".
