Russia, linked to China

Putin’s May 9 ordinance speaks of “developing a plan for the formation of international payment infrastructure with the trading partners of friendly countries” and “determining the procedure for settling financial items in rubles or international currencies.” The decree also talks about “compensation mechanisms that need to be developed” always with the “friendly” countries, those that at the UN did not criticize the invasion of Ukraine: China and India.

“Over the next two years, China will be the main export destination and source of Russian imports,” said Alexander Gabuev of the Carnegie Institute for International Peace.

Thus, the results threaten to lead to what Gabuev calls “a Balkanization of the global currency system,” in which not even the supremacy of the euro and the dollar is beyond doubt.
