Putin says Russia must diversify currencies it uses in international trade
VLADIVOSTOK, Russia, Sept 12 (Reuters) - Russian President
Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Moscow needed to diversify
the foreign currencies it used in international trade and not
solely rely on the U.S. dollar for such transactions.
The Russian central bank has been increasing the share of
gold and Chinese yuan in its coffers amid risks of more U.S.
sanctions that could target Russia's ability to trade globally.
