Russian ETFs are moving in Monday's afternoon session.

Following news that Russia's GDP fell in November, the Market Vector Russia ETF Trust (NYSE: RSX) experienced what at first looked to be a "fat finger" trade.

At 15:41 EDT, block trades were detected in the RSX as the ETF erased roughly 5 percent.
