Final Results

JPMorgan Flem Russian Secs PLC
24 January 2006

                           STOCK EXCHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT

The Board today announces the preliminary results of the Company for the year
ended 31st October 2005.

Chairman's Statement

The Year Under Review

I am pleased to report that the Company's excellent performance since it listed
on the London Stock Exchange in December 2002 has continued in the year to 31st
October 2005. During the year, the Company produced a total return on net assets
of +41.6%, which compares favourably with the return of +35.3% (in sterling
terms) from the benchmark, the CSFB Russian ROS Index.

During the year under review, the Company's ordinary share price increased by
46.6% from 183.5p to 269.0p. The Company's discount to net asset value narrowed
from 11.1% to 8.0%.

Revenue and Earnings

The revenue loss after taxation for the year to 31st October 2005 was £870,000
with a loss per share of 1.55p.

Authority to Repurchase the Company's Shares

At the last Annual General Meeting shareholders gave the Directors authority to
repurchase the Company's shares for cancellation. During the year under review,
the Company did not repurchase any shares. The Board continues to believe that a
facility to reduce discount volatility is important, and is therefore seeking
approval from shareholders to renew the authority at the forthcoming Annual
General Meeting.

JPMorgan Asset Management

During the year, the Company's Manager changed its name from J.P. Morgan Fleming
Asset Management (UK) Limited to JPMorgan Asset Management (UK) Limited ('
JPMAM'). The Board has reviewed the investment management, secretarial and
marketing services provided to the Company by JPMorgan Asset Management (UK)
Limited. This annual review has included their performance record, management
processes, investment style, resources and risk control mechanisms. The Board
was satisfied with the results of the review and therefore in the opinion of the
Directors, the continuing appointment of JPMAM for the provision of these
services is in the interests of shareholders as a whole.

Loan Facility

Russia's investment rating has been increased during the year and this has
enabled the Company to secure a loan facility of up to US$40 million at a
materially reduced margin than previously applied. At 31st October 2005, US$30
million of the Company's facility with ING Bank was drawn down for utilisation
in accordance with the Company's investment objectives.

Board of Directors

The Directors retiring by rotation are Mr Patrick Gifford and Mr Paul Teleki. A
Nomination Committee of the Board, consisting of those Directors who are not
standing for re-election by rotation, has met to consider the attributes and
contribution of each individual to the Board's deliberations. Following this
review, the Nomination Committee recommends to shareholders that, given their
investment experience and contribution to the Board, the Directors should be


It is anticipated that the key driver for this year will be Russia's ability to
maintain macroeconomic stability and contain inflation, as growth can only occur
in an environment of an improving business climate with monetary and political
stability. As domestic growth continues, it is expected that the consumer sector
is well positioned to benefit in the current year. It should be noted that
Russia has various structural advantages which could be utilised, such as the
size of the domestic market, educational levels of the population, existing
basic infrastructure and ownership of core commodities. These areas will be the
main impetus of future growth and the investment managers will reflect these
main themes in the Company's portfolio.

Change of Name

In view of the Manager's change of name mentioned above and the fact that the
Fleming name will no longer be used in the general promotion of companies in the
JPMorgan investment trust range, the Board considers it appropriate to change
the name of the Company to JPMorgan Russian Securities plc.

Annual General Meeting

The Company's third Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 1st March
2006 at 2.00 p.m., at JPMorgan's offices at 60 Victoria Embankment (entrance
located on John Carpenter Street), London EC4Y 0JP.
