The weekend hasn't started out nicely for Russia.  With a report that Georgia has shot down two Russian warplanes, the country's major stock index is down 4.55%, and the Ruble is having its worst decline versus the Dollar since January 10th, 2000.  Today's decline in the Russian Trading System index is the 3rd -4% decline in 11 trading days. 

As shown in the first chart below, the index has now broken below key support levels and is down nearly 30% from its highs on May 19th.
