Rubles instead of dollars: Russia wants to use tricks to avoid bankruptcy of the state

Russia is threatened with bankruptcy. For the first time in more than a century, it appears that the Kremlin will not be able to meet its payment obligations.

Interest on Russia’s dollar bonds was due to be paid on Wednesday. The government of Vladimir Putin (69) was obliged to pay $ 117 million to creditors. But the country does not have access to prohibited foreign exchange reserves from abroad, which is why it can only pay in rubles.
