Trading has been suspended on the Moscow Stock Exchange due to the unstable operation of the computer server.

The Exchange says it will resume trading using a backup after the failure of the network equipment.

The main indices were trading higher on Tuesday. The dollar-denominated RTS index was up 2.37 percent, while the ruble-traded MICEX gained 1.50 percent, as of 11:00 GMT.

Last week the exchange halted trading on all markets due to technical problems.
