Limitations of the calculations in dollars are a big strategic mistake of the United States, undermining confidence in the dollar as a reserve currency, said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at a press conference on the results of the BRICS summit in South Africa.

«As our American partners and those restrictions they impose, including in the calculations in dollars, I believe that this is a big strategic mistake our American partners, because they thereby undermine the credibility of the dollar as a reserve currency,» Putin said.

A few years ago nobody thought that these tools can be used in the political struggle, said the President of the Russian Federation.
