I'm a skilled professional Web-developer and entrepreneur in Russia. I were working with different local companies in Moscow for at least 10 years. I still work with couple of key clients in Moscow and it allows me to pay for my living. Right now, I don't have international clients. All payments are conducted in Russian Rubles and I also have a deposit in this currency.
It is no secret, that lately we are having a somewhat of a financial crisis in Russia. The Ruble is dropping. The US Dollar had risen from 41 RUR (01.11.14) to 61 RUR (current exchange rate). The prices are also growing for consumer products on local market. And there is an opinion that Ruble will continue to fall.
I know the complexity of the worldwide financial system and how this all depends on politics, but I'm trying to find a best course of action for me in this situation. I'm not looking for a short-term solution or for a method to make money of this situation by means of speculations of some kind. I'm looking for a long-term strategic solution that will allow me to have a stable finances that will not so drastically depend on a local currency.
What course of actions should I choose?
Do I have to convert my deposit account from Rubles into another currency? If so, which currency or a set of currencies should I choose?
Should I leave the Russian market and start to work with international clients in USD or EUR? Or maybe I should change the currency in which local clients are paying for my services?
I have a very basic understanding in the field of economics, so any suggestions or advises will be highly appreciated.
I will be glad to update my question if some specific information is required.
