Vladimir Putin: instability forcing countries away from dollar settlements

Wednesday, 28 November / Reuters

President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Russia was not aiming to stop settling deals using the U.S. dollar, but that instability in dollar-based settlements was forcing many world economies to think about moving to non-dollar settlements.
Speaking at a conference in Moscow, Vladimir Putin also said that Russia was actively working on a system that would be independent from the SWIFT global payment system, but added that Moscow would not make any sudden moves that might hurt itself.
