Russia appears as the global military power. But whether she has means for implementation of ambitions? Where now there is the Russian currency? Photo: depositphotos.com Russia acts as the geopolitical and military power in recent years, the Parisian La Tribune notices. However whether the country has economic opportunities to keep the importance in the long term? What, for example, happens to her currency and as her course changes? The edition asks such questions. From 2000 to 2014 the ruble in relation to dollar was only weakened, despite growth of cost of oil six times and increase in income from her export almost ten times. From the economy based on raw materials sale (mainly oil and gas), it was possible to expect real changes to the best and as a result of strengthening of currency. However there was the return. During this time the ruble has lost 15% of the cost. After some period of stability the Russian currency began to depreciate in June, 2013, but not in September of the 2014th when the barrel of oil has begun to become cheaper. The matter is that from the Kremlin threats to Ukraine have sounded, and the financial markets don't love the uncertainty caused by threats. Within three years up to summer of 2017 ruble exchange rate changed depending on oil cost. The United States have decided to toughen sanctions against Russia, having aimed at the major aviation and defensive concerns. The main trouble was the fact that restrictive measures have directly struck clients of these enterprises. Ruble exchange rate has again gone down as the defensive sector is a source of state revenues, the third on the importance. The new phase of succession of events has come in the spring of the current year. Despite growth of cost of oil, ruble continues easing that never occurred earlier in similar conditions. It is worth thinking of numerous statements according to which the international economic sanctions don't make impact on the Russian economy. The Kremlin loses fight for currency, concludes the edition. *** the Audit Chamber of the U. S. Congress has come to a conclusion that the American arms have many vulnerabilities, Bloomberg reports. Auditors were convinced: several generations of the American weapon were created without cyber security. The Pentagon intends to spend more than one and a half trillion dollars for elimination of shortcomings. During the experiment experts have spent one hour for breaking of system and days for complete control over arms which they tested, Chicago Sun Times adds. In other case experimenters have taken terminals under control and have floutingly hung out on the monitor a request to military operators to insert a coin into the receiver to continue work.
