Interesting, at least for me - RUB drops in face of sanctions.

When sanctions were introduced back in 2014 there was a liquidity crisis in Russia leading to a massive drop in value of the ruble. Fingers crossed it will happen again!

The oligarchs would not be happy with the Russian ruble or stocks:

Rusal shares plunge over 40 percent on U.S. sanctions

Having said that, I'm sure a lot of their personal wealth would already be held outside of Russia.

AUD/RUB has gained about 10% in the last two days. A nice little move but I'm hoping for a larger collapse. The dilemma I have is whether to buy RUB or USD... at the moment just the latter.
