The Rouble improved emphatically yesterday as oil traded near the $50 a barrel and a rush of exporters swapping dollars for the local currency.

It was not only economic factors that contributed to this move; after releasing the Ukrainian pilot Savchenko there is renewed hope that tensions with Russia in Europe could be quashed.
