Down they go, like dominoes: Russia & Egypt to ditch dollar in bilateral trade

They’re not the first and won’t be the last two countries on earth to dump the dollar and use their own currencies for bilateral trade. It won’t be long before the US is completely isolated economically.

Russia and Egypt might soon exclude the US dollar and use their national currencies in the settlement of accounts in bilateral trade, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview to Egyptian media ahead of his Monday visit to the country.

The issue of abandoning the dollar in trade is “being actively discussed,” Putin told Al-Ahram daily newspaper ahead of his two-day trip to Egypt. The Russian president was invited for a bilateral meeting by his Egyptian counterpart Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.

“This measure will open up new prospects for trade and investment cooperation between our countries, reduce its dependence on the current trends in the world markets,” Putin said.

“I should note that we already use national currencies for trade with a number of the CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] states, and China. This practice proves its worth; we are ready to adopt it in our relations with Egypt as well. This issue is being discussed in substance by relevant agencies of both countries.”

Just as planned, more than a decade ago, the dollar is going down.


  1. Russia: The ONLY country (left) not ‘beholding’ to world banks and the NWO. Good for him in that respect. He may have ‘little’ in assets, but as it will be in Ukraine, and was in Argentina and Greece, at least little is better than nothing.
