Besides that, Siemens announced that it would cut almost 8,000 jobs (2% of the total company employees). Moreover, the S&P rating agency downgraded Greece’s long-term credit rating from B to B-.

On Russia’s floors, the MICEX index advanced 3.5 percent up to 1,755.45 points, and the RTS index grew 2.72 percent up to 826.40 points.
