Russian RTS stock index down 3 pct after reports of Ukraine fighting

MOSCOW, April 15 (Reuters) - Russia’s dollar-denominated RTS stock index has fallen more than 3 percent on the day after reports of fighting in eastern Ukraine.

At 1425 GMT the RTS was down 3.2 percent at 1,146 points while the rouble-denominated MICEX index was down 2.5 percent at 1,143 points.

Ukraine’s defence ministry said on Tuesday evening that a “special operation” was underway in the town of Kramatorsk in eastern Ukraine, where there were reports of shooting at a military airfield, the Interfax news agency reported. (Reporting By Jason Bush; Editing by Steve Gutterman)
