I will answer the title’s question first with a flat “NO” and then explain.
Thursday, Vladimir Putin made the comments, “Russia should aim to sell its oil and gas for roubles globally because the dollar monopoly in energy trade was damaging Russia’s economy“… and …”At the moment we are trying to agree with some countries to trade in national currencies.”
If this were 10 or 20 years ago, his comments would be laughable. Fast forward to present day, his comments are not laughable at all, they are the words of outright WAR! Do you understand this? Mr. Putin is surely in talks with Brazil, India, China and South Africa, the “other four letters” which make up the BRICS. You can bet he is in talks with Mrs. Merkel regarding natural gas for Germany, you can also be assured that when, not if a deal is struck…there will be no “$ signs” in the contract.
