Maybe this is all BS and Putin just needed a quick cash infusion. So he made a quick call to whatever hedge fund he's invested in and told them they should short the Ruble and any other Currnecy thats going to take a hit because of all of this nonsense.
As to that last, wtf? The cutesy names are idiotic no matter who they're applied to and I have no love for Putin or Russia. I do however have mad respect for a masterful politician, just wish we had someone sitting in the Oval office with that sort of talent again. I'm tired of incompetents sitting in that chair.
You know, as much as I detest Bill Clinton as a man, he was very good at being POTUS, especially where it came to foreign relations.
