BRICS Countries Strike Fatal Blow on US Dollar Supremacy

  • BRICS Countries Strike Fatal Blow on US Dollar Supremacy

    The United States has declared a war of sanctions on Russia and continues putting trade pressure on China. It is not ruled out that the USA will restrict supplies of steel products from China. In return, Moscow and Beijing intend to abolish the US dollar in mutual settlements within the scope of the BRICS organization. The move will mark the end of the era of the undivided financial domination of the United States of America in the world.


    As soon as the US Congress adopted a package of new sanctions against Russia, Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Ryabkov issued a formidable warning to Washington. “US sanctions against Russia will only encourage Russia to create an alternative economic system, in which dollars will not be needed,” the Russian diplomat said.

    Interestingly, the statement was made on the eve of the two-day summit of BRICS trade ministers, which opened on August 1, 2017 in Shanghai. This organization, which includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, becomes a powerful counterweight to the Group of Seven.

    Today, the BRICS countries account for 26% of the Earth’s territory, 42% of the world’s population (almost three billion people) and 27% of world GDP. According to experts’ forecasts, the share of BRICS countries will account for more than 40% of world GDP by 2050.
