13:50 – 27/04/2021
Bloomberg Economic Agency reported that the dollar’s share in the structure of Russian exports fell to below 50%, for the first time in history. Bloomberg said this was the result of years of work by Moscow to reduce the Russian economy’s dependence on US assets.
According to the data of the Russian Central Bank, the reason for the decline is due to the trade relations between Moscow and Beijing, in which three quarters of its operations are carried out in the euro currency, and the share of the single currency of the eurozone in total exports rose to 36%.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly indicated that Washington, by following the sanctions policy, undermines confidence in the dollar, reduces Russian investments in US Treasury bonds and bills, and contributes to increasing the share of the ruble and other currencies in the structure of Russian foreign trade. And a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, reported, earlier, that the United States is using the dollar and the financial system not only in a way that conflicts with the rules of international law, but in a way that destroys the entire international relations system.
Moscow emphasized that the policy of diverting the Russian economy from the dollar does not mean prohibiting the circulation of the American currency, but it is related to creating economically beneficial conditions for other currencies. LINK
