Falling Oil Prices: Will Russia leave Crimea? / Stukalenko / Topic of the day

On March 9, the global oil market fell sharply. During the day, Brent oil prices fell by almost a third - to $ 31 per barrel. Oil prices have plummeted amid the failure of an OPEC agreement to limit production and Saudi Arabia's threats to wage a price war on the oil market. Against this background, the Russian ruble fell by almost 10% against the dollar - to the lowest level in four years. What awaits the Russian economy? How long will the fall in oil prices last? Will this not shake the position of the Russian regime in the occupied Crimea? We will talk about this with our guest. Today we have with us the Head of energy programs of the Centre for Global Studies "Strategy XXI" Igor Stukalenko.
