March 25 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Ryan Chilcote examines how sanctions from the west are impacting Russia’s economy and whether or not they could push the nation into a recession on Bloomberg Television’s “Market Makers.”

Ceremony for artists and actors.

Yesterday it was another awards ceremony for people who participated in the sochi olympics.

They would like to work with the other g7 countries.

There is a realization that for a while the g-8 has been g7 plus one.

Even the russians felt like they were the odd man out.

It was not a useful place for them to advance their agenda.

The g-20 is less exclusive.

They had more of their allies.

It will be hard.

You could say the same thing about the depression of the ruble.

The stock market has had a good week.

Take that with a grain of salt.

Thank you so much for the
