Ruble Climbs 10% on Russia’s Demand to Pay for Gas in Its Currency

On Wednesday, Russia’s ruble shot up against the US dollar after Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would require countries imposing war-time sanctions against Russia to pay for Russian gas in rubles.

The ruble surged 10%, trading above 101 against the US dollar. If Putin’s demand comes into force, European gas importers would need to buy hundreds of millions of euros’ worth of rubles each day to pay for gas deliveries.
