The United States admitted: Russia is really giving up the dollar

The share of the US dollar in Russian exports fell below 50% for the first time, writes the American agency Bloomberg, citing data from the statistical reports of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.

It is noted that the above indicator was achieved at the end of the IV quarter of 2020. This happened for the first time in the history of Russia and is a real achievement. It is the culmination of years of Moscow's efforts to reduce dependence and vulnerability in the financial and retail sectors.

According to the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (dated April 26, 2021 - ed.), A significant part of the decline in the use of the dollar is associated with Russia's trade with China, more than 3/4 of which is now conducted in euros. Data show that the share of the euro in total Russian exports rose by more than 10 percentage points, or 36%

- the agency specified.

The publication emphasizes that the introduction of new sanctions or any non-market restrictions (mechanisms), or the threat of their use against Russia, pushes Moscow to look for ways to counter the unfriendly influence of Washington and its allies on Russia. the economy... Therefore, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation has seriously reduced the volume of the US government debt (Treasury bonds) in its gold and foreign exchange reserves, increasing the share of gold and euros, the agency concluded.

Thus, the United States recognized that Russia is indeed gradually abandoning the American currency, replacing it with other financial (payment) instruments.

    I disagree. An unmanned zone has been installed here long ago. For them only.

    What difference does it make to us or not?
    Well, let them not admit it and think that everything is still in dollars. If it's calmer for them.

    In Russia, de-dollarization was carried out - they switched to the euro. Life has become "easier".

      The poll, which is monthly conducted by Infom for the central bank, showed that on the horizon of 12 months people expect inflation of 11,9% - twice as high as the Central Bank estimates now (5,5% in mid-April).
Russians estimate current inflation 2,6 times higher than official statistics - at 14,5%.
      At the same time, every seventh - 13,8% - said that prices are growing by 30% and more, although a year ago there were only 3,4%.

    What's the point of giving up the dollar? "I'll go on foot to the conductor?"

      The tram is heading in the wrong direction.

      The smart ones leave the carriage on the sly, without attracting undue attention from the conductor with the Colt.

        Here an example just arrived in time

        Low salaries provoke the flight of scientific personnel abroad. If in 2012 14 thousand scientists left the country every year, now it is already 70 thousand. For 10 years, the number of scientific workers in the country collapsed threefold. “Russia is the only developed country where the number of scientists has been decreasing for several decades in a row,” Nikolai Dolgushkin, Chief Scientific Secretary of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), sounded the alarm last week at the Academy's General Meeting.

          the chief scientific secretary of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) sounded the alarm last week

          The secretary would be concerned about the quality of the current Russian "scientists".
          As well as the quality of the current Russian higher education.

          RAS has long had to be transformed, turned into a muddy office, to which many questions have accumulated.

    The essence of the word "refuses" does not mean that "refused". Do you feel the subtleties? You can "refuse" for a hundred years, but you will not be able to "refuse".
    Bedalagi, only politicians see you in the United States. Here it would be just to look at your exports in relation to world trade.
    And what can the Russian Federation sell to the Serious World?
    Hint - Atommash. In the Czech Republic there are already seven billion of these "abandoned" dollars in the budget of the Russian Federation MINUS. If you found anything else, THANK YOU right away! in advance.
