    Oil price weakness 'threatens Putin's power' in Russia

    Big tonez using his divine power to manipulate global commodity markets and deliver promised shirt front to Putin

    But seriously though the last thing the world needs right now is a desperate Putin searching for a distraction to domestic economic issues... inb4WWIII

    not sure what exactly is trying to be gained from this. not really trying to leverage putin on ukraine anymore, pretty much stalemated their and no side really seems to have much will to break it.

    with the sanctions and now opec agreeing to keep demand as is with most countries still in recession or stagnating seems a pretty deliberate play, just doesn't seem to have a whole lot of positives.

    I dunno how you can have a sequel to World War's 1 and 2 without the main antagonist returning. Smells like a studio cash grab to me.

    An interesting take on it from the Russian side of things.

    You mean you're not sure why OPEC are keeping supply up?

    Seems high risk low reward for OPEC.

    Don't think the Saudi's can outlast the US shale boom so I personally think it's in vain, Russia (and OPEC members bar Saudis)are the main losers here.

    Seem to be poking the bear in Russia,when they wouldn't have really had to lose much market at all while maintaining prices and playing a wait and see approach with the US at this point in time when most economies/mid east isn't in great shape as it is.

    They just need some Austrians to set the ball rolling.

    RUSSIA’S central bank has announced a dramatic hike of its key interest rate from 10.5 to 17 per cent after the rouble plunged to a fresh record low.

    “This decision is aimed at limiting substantially increased rouble depreciation risks and inflation risks,” the Bank of Russia said in a statement posted on its website.

    The rouble yesterday suffered a mini-crash, falling by 9.5 per cent in a single day despite repeated interventions by the central bank.
    That's actually pretty phenomenal for a currency to depreciate that much in a day...and also for an interest rate to be hiked that much in response. It's not really a major currency, but Russia is still quite a big economy.

    Just imagine your average guy working on a salary. It's basically like getting demoted. Would hate to be a home owner with a mortgage in Russia right about now.

    Big hostage/terrorist situation happening in Peshwar, Pakistan now.

    Taliban have stormed a school and they have apparently already killed 110 people (mostly children), with hundreds more still being kept hostage.

    Early reports indicate they went class by class and killed students they saw. This is terrible.

    You have to be some special sort of scum to plan an attack on anyone, but CHILDREN IN SCHOOL? Fucking hell.

    Still can't get my head around the children bit.

    I remember the toll the Beslan School hostage crisis took on the international community, this will be something similar.

    Words can't describe how terrible this is.
