Ukraine conflict: Russia doubles interest rate after rouble slumps

Russia has more than doubled its interest rate to 20% in a bid to halt a slump in the value of its currency. The Bank of Russia raised the rate from 9.5% after the rouble sank 30% after new Western sanctions. The currency then eased back to about 20% down. The collapse in value erodes the currency’s buying power and could wipe out the savings of ordinary Russians.

Pro-Putin party sweeps to election victory but challenges remain for the Kremlin

Russia’s ruling party, United Russia, appears to have retained its majority in weekend Duma elections, cementing its control of parliament and bolstering President Vladimir Putin’s power base.

Buckle up, August is coming

Over the past year the coronavirus pandemic has tried our patience, as well as our health, Russia was hit with more economic sanctions and Moscow endured extreme weather conditions. One may be forgiven for thinking that Russians have endured the worst that nature and politics can throw at them and should now look forward to a quiet holiday month. Not quite. History has repeatedly shown that August is a month when surprises, usually bad, can happen more often than in any other month. It is very rare for August to pass without a legacy event, whether a major accident, environment disaster or political event.

Russia unlikely to interfere in Saudi-UAE dispute to raise oil output

“There is a very wise old saying that ‘it is a very foolish person that seeks to interfere in family disputes,’” Chris Weafer, co-founder of Macro-Advisory in Moscow told New Europe on July 9, asked Russia can mediate to help strike a deal between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to raise output. Essentially this is a dispute between two Arab nations who are members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and who share a lot of common interests, he added.

Russia’s slow progress on climate action set to pick up speed

After seven years of sanctions and accusations of malign activities by all sides, political relations between Russia and both the US and the EU are at their worst since the mid-1980s. But there are signs, in Moscow and Washington as well as in some EU capitals, of confrontation fatigue. It appears there is an emerging effort to try and draw a line under the deterioration and, at least, establish some form of predictability in the relationships. Climate action may offer a sliver of common ground, it represents a rare issue that the US has said it will work on with Russia.

Climate management key in repairing Biden-Putin relationship

After seven years of sanctions and accusations of malign activities by both sides, political relations between Russia and the United States are the worst since the mid-80s and the trend could continue to worsen. The momentum has been in that direction for some time. But is there is a chance that the political engagement initiated by President Joe Biden may now stabilize the relationship and allow for the building of a better platform from which to move forward in the future?

The five Stans back in the Game

For most of the past hundred years, Central Asia was little known to most of the rest of the world. It was closed to outsiders during the over seven decades of Russian occupation and, like most of the other former Soviet states, the countries in the region have often struggled to deal with political and economic freedom since independence. Some are still struggling to define their historic and current national identities while also trying to chart the best course for social and economic development. With few exceptions, the region has been of little interest to investors or multinational corporations. That is now starting to change.
