Russia will continue to ditch US dollar in economy & trade – official

The Russian government is planning to continue its established policy of eliminating the share of US currency in the country’s economy, according to Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexander Pankin.

According to the minister, all transactions processed via the US financial system can be blocked by Washington at its discretion, while the threat of anti-Russian sanctions is still relevant.

“Thus, there is no doubt about the expediency of continuing to work on further reducing the share of the dollar in national and international reserves, as well as its use in settlements with foreign partners,” he said, as quoted by Interfax.
