Russian Ruble makes 4.5 year LOW; Ukraine will drag Ruble down even more ...
Russia puts the $15bn they promised to Ukraine on hold last week awaiting formation of new gov't in Ukraine ... i wonder what the terms of such "agreement" were/are (if there was a formal contract ... what conditions & terms did it contain? ).
Russia credit quality would be assessed as 85% Russian economy + 15% Ukraine economy (percentages are an example, to illustrate more simply the concept that if Russia actually lends al the money and if Ukraine goes down/doesn't repay/ has difficulty repaying, then Russia is affected)
