Andrey Belyaninov offers to make ruble EEU currency

«The ruble secured by gold should become the currency of the Eurasian Economic Union,» said Andrey Belyaninov, Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) at the conference «Window of Opportunities: Investments and New Projects in Eurasia.» The official website of the bank reported.

The head of the EDB is confident that Russia has a better platform than the blockchain. This is the ruble. In his opinion, the investment activity in the Eurasian region was prompted by the activities of Donald Trump: the slow movement away from the dollar, caused by the statements and actions of the American president, turns into a flight from the dollar, and this makes investments in national economies and the whole EEU particular attractive.

«It must be made the currency of settlements in the territory of EEU. There are the richest gold reserves on the territory of our countries, both in central bank depositories and in natural storerooms, so the ruble should be secured by gold. Infrastructural megaprojects are beneficial for the American economy, because it is a wonderful step to sterilize a lot of candy wrappers called «American dollars» and then calmly tackle further emissions. That’s why they should not be allowed to do this,» Andrey Belyaninov stressed.
