The economic stability of the United States could be undermined if Moscow finally abandons the use of the dollar. This topic was discussed by the readers of the Bulgarian edition “Fakti”.
One reader noted that if the Russians stopped selling their raw materials in dollars, “the US state reserve is in for a surprise.”
Another panellist believes that US economic strength is supported by its brands and printed dollars, so “Russia must fight.”
“Everything has an end. Even the American empire,” said a third reader.
It was also noted in the discussion that US sanctions are worthless and that Washington has nothing more to support the dollar with.
Earlier, the Bank of Russia announced a sharp drop in the share of the dollar in payments for Russian exports. So in the fourth quarter of last year, only 48.3% of Russian export goods were paid in dollars.
