The Russian economy was financed by oil at over $120 a barrel...if they dont see $100 their county will slide slowly towards complete bankruptcy....good! Perhaps it was simply a coincidence that oil prices plummeted directly after their invasion of Ukraine...but regardless of coincidence or strategy or just good luck... I am enjoying watching the Russian oil based economy bleed to death as a result
