Of course I'd quote RT. It's a much more objective and honest news outlet than any US or UK MSM. Also, by quoting RT I'm quoting Standard & Poor, Fitch investment firms. When you pretense to scoff at RT you're actually scoffing at S&P and Fitch, who are the sources for the information. What they say about their ratings encouraging investment into Russia isn't spin.
You talk about spin, but your comments are based on idea that came out of a sneering gossip resentful group, and aren't backed by facts. They're sentiment.
Oil is increasingly less dependent on oil year after year. Anyway, the price of oil hit its low in January 2016. Russia's foreign investment hit its low towards the end of 2014, after US sanctions. Since 2014, the long-term trend in foreign investment into Russia has been upwards. That's going to continue with ratings upgrades from S&P, Fitch, and Moody's, and will also increase as a result of Russia implementing its own international payments system to work outside of SWIFT. And if the EU goes ahead with its plan to create their own international payments system (which the US is pressuring them to not do), then unilateral US sanctions forced on other countries will basically be a thing of the past.
RT is the Kremlin's mouthpiece - the original fake news network. Honest and objective? Riiiiight.. You really think Russia is the tits? K, lol.
