Russia’s Central Bank In The Crosshair: Can Russia Learn From Brazil’s Fate?

    I don’t think that the Russians who started the BRICS could have been so stupid to keep relying on the foreign currency for their central bank. the Russian economy is growing and they started trading with other countries without using the dollar for oil transactions and other products and goods.
