The Russian rouble has fallen sharply against the US dollar and euro today (Friday).

The rouble, which has already fallen by a third this year, fell by more than 2% against the dollar and euro.

It adds to the growing pressure on the Russian economy which has struggled following the economic sanctions imposed by the US and EU.

The conflict and tensions between Ukraine and Russia prompted a series of economic sanctions by the US and EU, which has left the Russian economy stagnant.

Russia's central bank had been using its own reserves to restrict the fall in value of the rouble. But it announced plans to limit that intervention, on Wednesday.

The recession is over. It's time to grow!
