RUSSIA - Ruble Slides Lower Ahead of Central Bank Meeting

The ruble extended losses on Wednesday afternoon as oil prices slid to a new five-year low after the OPEC oil producers' group cut its demand forecast for next year. At 6:50 p.m., the ruble was down around 1.1 percent against the dollar at 54.65 and down 1.6 percent against the euro at 67.92, hitting a new all-time low against the euro-zone currency. Global oil benchmark Brent was around 3 percent lower, below $65 a barrel, in late afternoon trading in Moscow.
"Oil is playing against the ruble, but on the other hand we are awaiting the Central Bank, which could unexpectedly 'give a thump on the head' with interventions," said Pyotr Neimyshev, a forex trader at bank Otkritie. Oil and gas account for two-thirds of Russia's exports, so oil price swings have an important impact on the country's balance of payments and therefore the currency.

African Doctor Stabbed in Stomach for Asking Russian Assaulter to Address Him by Name

An African doctor was stabbed in the stomach on the street in a town near Moscow for asking to be addressed by his name instead of a racial term, in one of many accounts of racially motivated violence against migrants in Russia, a rights activist said.
The eye surgeon from the war-ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo once fled his country for Russia in search of peace, but the level of racism has prompted him to seek refuge in a monastery, human rights activist Katya Bermant of Children's Hearts charitable foundation said Tuesday on her Facebook page.
The man, identified by his first name Francis, left DR Congo for Russia after militants came to his hospital and "gave orders to kill the wounded," Bermant said.

The American Century comes to an end as China becomes the world’s largest economy

There are just a few days to go before 2014 comes to an end, and this is also the year that America lost its over-140 year dominance as the world’s biggest economy, the title it took from Britain in 1872. China’s GDP, based on the IMF’s Purchasing Power Parity figures, surpassed America’s for the first time, and despite slowing growth there still managed to add 20% to GDP in the two years since 2012. It is a growth rate no other top 10 nation can match. Britain now holds last place in that club, and has been overtaken by Indonesia.China is now worth some 14.4 trillion euros a year, while the USA is worth a little over 14. It’s not much of a difference, but the trend is pointing clearly at a widening gap in coming years.

Rights situation in Russia improved, but problems remain

The presidential ombudsman for human rights strongly rejected allegations that the rights situation in the country has deteriorated, adding that improvements were obvious to see for anyone who worked in this field 15 or 20 years ago.
I will never agree that the situation has become worse,” Ella Pamfilova told the Interfax news agency in an interview dedicated to the International Day of Human Rights celebrated on Wednesday.
The official added that the issue of human rights is now raised mostly by representatives of the political opposition, who talk about political rights exercised through public rallies or polls.
