US White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Tuesday the ruble’s weakening meant that the US and EU sanctions imposed on Russia over its stance on the Ukraine crisis were reaching their goals.

“The negative impact of these developments was mitigated by the ruble’s weakening, which however, may increase inflationary pressure,” the regulator said.
