Good luck repaying your debts in worthless rubles.

Kudos to the west for tightening the noose.

You know what they say about "follow the money."

Hi, Shrink726!

A look at the exchange rate of US dollars vs. rubles is instructive.

You can find it at: https://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=USD&to=RUB

Considering the current sanctions imposed on Russia, the ruble is showing resiliance.

Regards, stay safe 'n well 'n remember the Big 5.
 
US $ value of ruble 3/22/18 .017; 2/1/22 (preceding war) .013; 3/10 .007 (lowest), 4/8 .012.


Indeed, the Russian Ruble is showing resilience in the beginning of this new phase in a war that started in Feb of 2014 and considering the value of the ruble to the US dollar has been declining for 4 yrs.

so we ban them from paying debts in dollars, and then demand they pay their debts in dollars? :unsure:

This is going to hurt the west more than it hurts russia. They'll just use the money on themselves. We'll never recieve the money because we won't let them pay.
