    In Russia's case, there are a few tiers: tier one is China and Germany, and this is why everyone is looking to Germany to step in, but Merkel may stay quiet. The United States is in tier two, ahead of all other EU countries. Every EU member state except Germany does less business with Russia than we do. It's not small potatoes, especially in the Russian market, which is far more unstable than ours (it fluctuates like crazy). Still, this just accelerates their move toward consolidating BRICS as their long-run partners of choice.
