Krasnodar, 8 August – Yug Times. Experts have predicted that Russian rouble will fall because of the US sanctions.
Analysts of the Citigroup consulting company reportedly calculated that the American sanctions against Russian public debt - if the US government would introduce them - may bring down the rouble exchange rate by approximately 15%. In this case, the dollar rate would rise from the existing 63 roubles up to 70-73 roubles.
The USA have for a long while been discussing a possibility of introducing sanctions against Russian federal loan bonds. Last spring, US Congressmen even developed a draft bill “on solidarity with the UK against Russia’s alleged aggression”, providing, among other things, for a complete ban on any financial transactions connected with Russia’s public debt - but the bill has not been approved yet.
