Russia could ban btc/fiat pairs according to this: http://www.coindesk.com/russian-minister-confirms-plans-to-ban-bitcoin-to-fiat-conversions/
So btc/nbt should be huge in Russia?
Maybe we should think about creating RU-NBT as suggested by @crypto_coiner somewhere.
Seeing this as a way to protect RUB against devaluation and an overall trend towards capital controls I think USD would end up having higher demand than RUB within Russia. Probably doesn’t hurt to create RU-NBT though.
at the end they will not accomplish anything. in fact they will harm their private sector economy.
