Naryshkin: dollar becoming toxic

Director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin said that the dollar is an anachronism of the modern world economy.

According to him, it seems abnormal that the United States, "behaving so aggressively and unpredictably," continues to be the "holder of the main reserve currency." 

"Due to the objective strengthening of multipolarity, the monopoly position of the dollar in international economic relations becomes anachronistic," he said at the international meeting of security representatives in Ufa.

"Gradually, the dollar is becoming toxic," TASS cited Naryshkin as saying.

The Director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service noted that the use of the dollar presents risks and more and more countries think about finding alternative tools for doing business.
