Shares of "Norilsk Nickel " in the course of trading on the Moscow Stock Exchange rose by 4.84%, to 26,234 rubles. per paper, according to the marketplace data.
The company's quotes exceeded 26 thousand rubles and renewed their maximum amid rising nickel prices.

Nickel prices continue to rally, with the London Metal Exchange benchmark exceeding $ 18,000 per tonne for the first time since September 2019 as prolonged turmoil in New Caledonia, the world's fourth-largest metal producer, heightened supply concerns.
The decline in nickel stocks in warehouses controlled by the Shanghai Stock Exchange, which more than halved in 2020, has also increased pressure on prices.
