DRTOA – My family does the same as Putin and Russia. We covert all currency to Gold and Silver. We accept US currency as payment, but then convert out ASAP! My wife just took 3 of her pay checks and bought silver this afternoon at $15. 55 an oz. Us paper money is worthless, and when the population realizes this it will be too late. Paper fiat currencies are NOT a store of value! They are pieces of paper…….
by Dmitry Kalinichenko, Gold-eagle:
Very few people understand what Putin is doing at the moment. And almost no one understands what he will do in the future.
No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas only for physical gold.
Putin is not shouting about it all over the world. And of course, he still accepts US dollars as an intermediate means of payment. But he immediately exchanges all these dollars obtained from the sale of oil and gas for physical gold!
