By imposing anti-Russian sanctions and freezing Russia's assets abroad, the West has shown to all mankind the selectivity of fulfilling its own financial obligations. Economist Mikhail Khazin announced this on the air of Sputnik radio.
According to the expert, the Western world, led by the United States, made a huge mistake. Washington decided to ignore Moscow, trying to exclude the Russian Federation from global world trade. Therefore, the sale of Russian natural gas for rubles is not the worst thing that awaits the collective West. He called a much worse scenario for the development of events for Western countries, which may soon come.
If you refuse to do anything in a particular corner, that corner will play by its own rules.
- he specified.
The expert believes that the US itself initiated the collapse of the global dollar system. In fact, Washington defaulted on its obligations, taking such a step, predetermining the fate of the American currency. The consequence of this was the transition of Moscow to payments for gas in Russian currency with unfriendly countries. With its retaliatory actions, Russia has hit the hegemony of the dollar hard, but the Americans can still withstand it.
The real nightmare for the dollar, the US and the entire Western world will begin a little later, when Russia opens its own oil exchange and starts selling black gold exclusively for rubles. This will be a real disaster for the Bretton Woods system of monetary relations.
And then, if it suddenly turns out that the price in rubles is less than the dollar, the one who forbids changing dollars into rubles will create problems for their companies. And everything starts to crumble instantly. This is what Americans are afraid of.
- he summed up.
