Russia has large reserves energy resources, which it quite successfully exports to many countries around the world. Recently, Moscow has increasingly made it clear that they do not want to sell oil and gas for dollars, according to the material of the SchiffGold portal.

According to the authors of the material, Russia is not interested in dollars, which for it are nothing more than candy wrappers.
It is noted that the Russian Federation began to pay a lot of attention to gold, not only increasing its gold reserves, but also actively trading this precious metal.
And some Western experts do not rule out that Russia may begin to accept gold as payment for energy exports. However, this can be applied to any commodity.
And in such a scenario, the American dollar, being the world’s main reserve currency, will be in an extremely vulnerable position, says the SchiffGold material.
Its authors note that gold does not depend on SWIFT, or indeed any banking system. And compared to cryptocurrencies, gold is the most common and viable asset in the world. Which is also not controlled by any country.
The United States and its allies have repeatedly organized “raids” on Russian gold, trying to block it and thus solve the problems associated with it. But each time these actions only amused the Russian authorities, the material says.
And this is a completely logical reaction, there is no way to determine the origin of the ingots. “Gold is gold, someone will definitely take it,” the authors of the material believe.
