A man walks along the Boulevard Ring in downtown Moscow, Russia, Wednesday, Dec. 24, 2014 with a currency exchange office sign in a window. Russia’s central bank made another move Wednesday to shore up the battered ruble, offering hard currency loans to companies and banks to help them service their debts. The bank said that borrowers could put their debt obligations as collateral against the loans. It’s a major relief for the nation‘s companies and banks, who can’t tap foreign capital markets to refinance their loans because of Western sanctions.  (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko)
