Introducing the Altyn: Russia Accelerates Plans to Launch New “Gold” Eurasian Currency

Having S&P downgrade Russia is meaningless, as reported by Zero Hedge. Perhaps the downgrade is in response to the US having lost control over Russia, as it is quite clear that Russia is going in a direction that is in its own interest and has told America to "buzz off" as it no longer matters. Russia no longer cares. This is being done while at the same time letting America know first hand that interference will no longer be tolerated with the shooting down of an American drone over Murmansk, Russia with lasers and the more recent jamming of radar on the US destroyer the Dennis Cooke by a SU-24, an unarmed Russian bomber, which was in the Black Sea. American technology was demonstrated to be inferior without bloodshed. What is being seen now is the reaction of a declining empire lashing out, not capable of statesmanship, having no moral high ground to stand on.

One can assume that should events unfold as indicated by the end of May, then the actions of other BRIC nations will be conclusive of a major shift in how the world will work in the future, which will not be a world controlled by America. This will mean a major change to everyday life in Western countries.

We definitely are no longer in "Kansas". The world is waving the finger now to America. Plus 2 words.

On the territory of several Russian principalities the currency Altyn has been circulating from the 15th century until 1991. Originally it was made of copper, the silver Altyn appeared during the times of Peter the Great.

Several Russian News outlets have reported that Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, that currently form the Eurasian customs union, will sign an agreement in May to accelerate the formation of an economic union and a joint currency: the Altyn.

Russia’s economy is eight times smaller than the US, but by forming a new ‘empire’ on top of a vast amounts of resources, this economic block will be a serious threat for the US petrodollar.

Russia is now speaking openly about getting rid of the US dollar for trading energy, building its own payment system and closing gas export deals with China - the other Asian empire. The Eurasian Economic Union will be a powerful stab at the US dollar hegemony.

By the way, the meaning of the Turkish word “Altyn” is … gold.
