MOSCOW, August 10. /TASS/. The United States expects not only to keep the dollar as the single global currency but also get closer to to the economic wealth of other global major powers, Chairman of Russia’s State Duma Sergey Naryshkin has said.
"Because of this the United States has now made public the new list of Russian companies and individuals, instructing its banks (and with their help - European ones) not to work with our bodies seeking any causes for this," he noted in his article published by the Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily on Monday.
According to Naryshkin, the United States is also "pinning its hopes on the forthcoming consideration of the so-called claim of the former Yukos shareholders in the American court."
He noted that "even the existence of the global printing press" had stopped helping the United States. "Full control over NATO, eavesdropping and the blackmailing of the European Union’s ‘major league’ are of little help. Colonialists of the 21st century are no longer satisfied with all that," he went on to say.
"Washington’s main aim is to assign the American jurisdiction a global monopoly and also maintain its influence on the global financial system, to remain the only decision-maker here. Even the fate of the euro is of little importance, just like other economic losses of the European countries," Naryshkin added.
