People walk past a sign indicating the US dollar, top, and euro, bottom, rates of a currency exchange in Moscow, Russia, Friday, Jan. 16, 2009. Russia’s ruble fell to its lowest point in more than a decade against the dollar as the Central Bank continued a policy of controlled devaluation. The decreases marked the 16th devaluation of the ruble since Nov. 11, when the government launched a controlled slide that has seriously depleted its currency reserves. (AP Photo/Sergey Ponomarev)
