Russian ruble crisis 2014

Editor's note: Russian President Vladimir Putin's annual press conference has ended. Among many sweeping topics discussed, Putin reinforced his belief in Russia overcoming the crisis in Ukraine and defended Russia's protection of its own interests in the political struggle. He maintained that Russia's economy would rebound within two years amid tough Western sanctions and a failing ruble, both residual effects of the crisis and other factors. Putin also took questions on foreign relations with countries like China and Turkey, but no significant new ground was broken on those topics. - Aaron
