The Rubble currency has been in a lot of trouble lately. In fact, it's expected to cease to exist by 2022. However, that doesn't mean that conversions into other currencies won't still be happening. In fact, the economy can definitely have an impact on currency conversions. For example, if there's a lot of inflation happening, then it will be harder to change rubles into dollars or other currencies. However, the ruble still has some value and people may still want to convert it into other currencies in case of emergency.
