MOSCOW, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Russia's leading RTS1-Interfax

Thursday, climbing back from a more than 11 percent fall earlier
in the session.

fears of a rouble devaluation and a crisis in the interbank
market. The slide took place on a very thin market, with volume
coming in at just $10.73 million by the close.
