Western news channels Propaganda?

Ask yourself this .... "who is most likely lying? The mainstream Western news channels or the stock market charts" ??
On one hand I hear and watch "sanctions on Russia. Companies moving out/ closing doors. Banks & financial sectors shutting down on russian and/or tied to russian compaines and individuals.
And then there's this chart. Or the usd/ ruble for that matter. And then look at the s&p500 or the ftse100 who are in far worst shape than the russian stock market. Is the rusky money printer working overtime again? Russian backed companies on the u.s. and euro markets selling off to collapse them? Or just blatant (more than usual) mainstream news Propaganda at play.
Something ain't adding up. 🤔
