It's just zeroes and ones, isn't it? So if Russia gets sanctions applied to it, the US could theoretically prevent any treasuries ultimately held by the Russian government from being redeemed or maybe even just zero those particular treasuries out...
And the rate fell this week. Joke's on them.

Just look at almost any stock under 10B, every Friday. The price almost always get locked in a tiny range by 11:30 AM.

I am Russian, and I am seeing the same thing. As far as I have read it is "join now or later"... Russia is a very corrupt and pessimistic country, and Crimea is a vacation area for many Russians and others. They have got to be thinking about the economic impact of this vote.
Three times at least, not twice. Pretty sure we hit that point yesterday, too, though you don't see it on the chart. Only thing that tells me is that there's a buyer or 2 at 59.50.
