That's simple math. Have you seen how nicely they are using up their currency reserves?

If oil prices stay this deflated for 2 years, I don't think we will be worrying about Russia.
So far, globally, the oil industry has laid off approx 100,000 people.
Of that 100,000...a shade over 75,000 have come from North America, with another 100,000 anticipated to go before the end of summer.
Russia...um, they increased their oilfield presence over the past 3 months.
That being said, this is ATS, so believe what ever garbage you want.

Indeed. Kinda like when a members every thread authored since last august is about Russia/Ukraine. Hmm
I rarely start threads as shown in my history, but when I do they are for a reason unlike the multitude of bash america/west threads that have been started by a few. It's called staying topical.
I also have threads in the chemtrail forum care to comment on those?
Others do things it is showing their hand, you do it "it's staying topical". Suuuure

Russia its economy took a hit, but it`s not collapsing...
Russia Rebounds, Despite Sanctions
And Russia is also not isolated, Serbia, Asia, South America, Africa, Eurasia, Middle East are still all partially doing business with Russia.

Russia took over Ukraine's primary naval base? You mean the one Russia had a long lease to operate from, with thousands of troops and other personnel based there. That one?
