The week between Christmas and the new year is traditionally a quiet one on Wall Street, with volumes plummeting as traders enjoy a long vacation and many large firms shut down altogether. Indeed, the post-Christmas week of 2009 has seen little action, with most major benchmarks lacking direction in light trading. Russia, on the other hand, has been a hotbed of activity, with several major developments unfolding this week that could have a major impact on the country’s financial markets as the calendar turns to 2010.

I've never owned XRU (what do you guys think about the curreny trades in Rubles?), but I've been in and out of RSX(currently out).

Such potential, but will mostly go unrealized as Putin,et.al., can't see beyond the 'old ways'..
