What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Belarusian ruble?

The Belarusian ruble has been a free-floating currency since 2011, and it is therefore freely convertible into other currencies and subject to supply and demand in the global currency market.

The exchange rate between the US dollar and Belarusian ruble can be affected by a number of different factors, either in the United States, Belarus, or elsewhere in the world. Interest rates in the countries is usually a key factor in determining the exchange rate, and higher interest rates in either country will lead to a higher exchange rate for the same currency.

Political and economic conditions in either country also plays a role for the exchange rate. Belarus has traditionally been closely tied to Russia, which is also its most important trading partner. The Russian economy is therefore important for Belarus, and improvements in the Russian economy will in most cases contribute to a higher exchange rate for the Belarusian ruble.


How does the Belarusian ruble trade against the US dollar historically?

The current version of the Belarusian ruble was introduced by the Belarusian central bank in 2015. The central bank decided to introduce a new denomination of the currency since the old one had become impractical to use due to severe inflation. The new ruble replaced the old one at a rate of 1 to 10,000, and the initial exchange rate to US dollars was about 1.1 ruble to 1 dollar. However, the ruble depreciated quickly and reached an all-time-low of 2.2 ruble to 1 dollar in the beginning of 2016.

In 2015, the Belarusian central bank devalued the ruble by 23% against the US dollar. Since then, the exchange rate between the dollar and the ruble has fluctuated between 1.85 and 2.2 ruble for 1 US dollar. Since 2016, the exchange rate between the Belarusian ruble and the US dollar has stabilized at a rate of around 1.9 ruble to 1 US dollar, which is a sign that the currency now has found the right level and investors are again gaining confidence in the Belarusian economy.
