RUSAL shares on the Hong Kong stock exchange fell to a record low

Hong KONG /XIANGGANG/, April 16. /TASS/. Shares of Russian aluminum giant RUSAL continued to fall at the opening of the new trading week on the Hong Kong stock exchange.

In the first minute of operations, they fell by 16.67% to 1.7 Hong Kong dollars per unit, according to the auction as of 9:45 local time (04:45 GMT).

This is the lowest value of securities in the company’s history, which has placed them on the ground in Hong Kong in 2010.
