In the imminent end of the geopolitical confrontation now, few believe. On the contrary, there is the option of further tightening of Western sanctions and Russia’s retaliatory measures, and sometimes even a way of saving money Russians in the West through the cryptocurrency. Though perhaps not so clear. If Russia’s relations with the West will really improve, we can expect the rise in stock prices in half to two times. And this game is worth the candle.
According to information from business circles, the completion of the acquisition of AT&T Corporation Time Warner Inc. for $108,7 billion, which belong to the leading American cable television channels CNN and HBO, will significantly change the informational-political landscape of the United States in favor of the supporters of the incumbent President. Loyal media need Donald Trump to achieve their goals in several areas.

In this case best buy is national Champions, leaders in their sectors, Rosneft, Aeroflot, MTS, Sberbank, etc. and of course, “Gazprom”. Its market capitalization is heavily dependent on the resolution of the Ukraine crisis, as Moscow and Washington agree on the situation in the East of Ukraine.
The world is changing very quickly, and should use every opportunity to earn. The idea, of course, controversial. However, as the idea of buying bitcoin in the hope of entering the cryptocurrency money of the Russian oligarchs.
