For its part, the Russian government doubts that the current quotas will be revised, expecting that the demand for oil products will only increase due to the increased intensity of carriers, air flights and field work of the agricultural sector in the coming summer.

Against this background the RBA statement about keeping the key rate at the previous level will give a negative signal to investors and will stimulate the pressure on the Australian dollar to 0.6570 or lower, to 0.6480.
