Russia will move towards de-dollarization of the economy, but not to undermine the currency, but for their own security, said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

«We’re definitely in this direction (de-dollarize the economy — ed.) will move forward because we want to undermine the dollar, but because we want to ensure its security, because we constantly sanction any… do not give us the opportunity to work in dollars», — said Putin, speaking at the annual meeting of the club «Valdai» in Sochi.
