Russia has something to answer to American sanctions

“In Russia, the opinion is now very widespread that, by and large, there is nothing to answer to American sanctions,” says Alexander Razuvaev, director of the Alpari analytical department. — However, in fact, this is far from the case.

Russia may declare a moratorium on the payment of sovereign and corporate debts in favor of the United States and European Union countries. This also applies to dividends on local shares and ADRs of Russian companies. Over the past year, the amount of dividends on Russian chips amounted to 1.7 trillion rubles. And the share of non-residents in securities traded on the markets is 30-35%, 10 years ago before the war on 08/08/08 and the collapse of Lehman Brothers — 50%.

And, of course, geopolitics. Russia must step up the consolidation of the Eurasian space. First of all, in the framework of the Eurasian Union — Belarus and Kazakhstan. The basis should be taken by the implemented model of the European Union. Ideally, the creation of the Eurasian Confederation is a common currency, a single foreign and defense policy.

Unlike Europe, it will be easier for Russia, since the Collective Security Treaty Organization already exists, the economies of Kazakhstan and especially Belarus are still very much tied to the Russian economy. It’s only right to consider the idea of ​​a supranational Eurasian currency, and not to impose the Russian ruble on Minsk and Astana. ”
