Temporary refusal of the Russians to travel abroad can contribute to the strengthening of the ruble, according to Bloomberg.
according to the Agency, every year Russian citizens spend on foreign trips for $20 million more than the country receives from foreign tourists. However, in the year 2020 because of the epidemic of the coronavirus expenses of Russian tourists in other countries may be reduced by 50%.
If the Russians take a holiday in your own country, the ruble may strengthen the dollar by 4 percentage points — assuming that this growth is not obstructed by other factors, said analysts.
Earlier, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin urged not to plan a vacation abroad to avoid the “importation” of infection. He also warned about the risk of sudden difficulties in the return of tourists back home.
