Russia threatens to drop greenback and send US markets into tailspin
(03-04 16:43)

Russia could reduce to zero its economic dependency on the United States if Washington agreed sanctions against Moscow over Ukraine, a Kremlin aide said, warning that the American financial system faced a “crash'' if this happened.
“We would find a way not just to reduce our dependency on the United States to zero but to emerge from those sanctions with great benefits for ourselves,'' said Kremlin economic aide Sergei Glazyev, saying Russia could stop using US dollars for international transactions.
“An attempt to announce sanctions would end in a crash for the financial system of the United States, which would cause the end of the domination of the United States in the global financial system,'' he added.—AFP
