    Russia’s central bank halts daily purchases of foreign currency after the rouble hits 60 to the dollar
    Russia’s central bank halted daily purchases of foreign currency on Wednesday in an effort to stop a week-long slide of the rouble that has raised fears of a second currency collapse in a year.

    Whenever Putin is hurting it's always good news. It is probably also a good time to visit Russia (lots more roubles to the £). I'd love to visit the Hermitage in St Petersburg, but you have to visit the Russian Embassy to get a visa and have your fingerprints taken. That, together with their poor record on gay rights and their shitty behaviour in Europe of late, means they won't be getting my tourist cash anytime soon.

    Iicon_neutral.gificon_mad.gif fully agree, especially when you consider I recently
    got scammed out of 1300 USD from a gay Russian Romance
    scammer.

    ATTN anyone reading this.....be very very careful
    when dealing with anyone from Russia on line.
    They will try to get your money via a scam where
    they ask you to pay for their air ticket, passport
    and visa into the USA and then after you SEND them
    money, they cut contact.

    The person I dealt with told me to meet him at the
    airport here in Hawaii and he never left Russia...
    total liars !!

    so please disregard these people. they lie and steal
    with no end.

    Why would you agree to pay for anyone's travel fare, visa's or passports if you don't know them?

    I wouldn't entertain the horrible thought of setting foot into that backward, homophobic, xenophobic, miserable shithole of a country regardless of the favorable currency exchange rates. Let Russia collapse into complete economic and political chaos. The way they harshly treat certain groups of people in that unfriendly, hostile country they rightfully deserve it. icon_mad.gif

    Why Russia? There must be some nice men there? Do you prefer Eastern Europe men?

    Steve... I hate to tell you this but 99.999999999999% of the human population is not so dumb as to .....

    A. throw money away chasing an internet fantasy
    B. Admitting having thrown money away chasing an internet fantasy

    There's a prince from Ghana with a ass load of money he needs to sneak out of the country who's lurking about here in RJ trying to find a hubby in the US... I've emailed him to let him know you're available.
