BREAKING! De-Dollarization Accelerates: Russia Launches SWIFT-Alternative Linking 91 Entities
Published: February 19, 2015
Back in 2013, The NSA was first exposed for secretly 'monitoring' the SWIFT payments flows. This appears to have been among the last straws for Russia (and others) as far as both NSA spying and dollar domination.
Last year, following threats to remove Russia from SWIFT by the UK, (which SWIFT rapidly distanced its 'independent-self' from), Russia (and China) announced plans to create its own de-dollarized version. In November, Russia detailed the SWIFT-alternative's launch date around May 2015, and just last month, Medvedev warned of "unlimited reaction" if Russia was cut off from the SWIFT payments system.
So the news this week that Russia has launched its own 'SWIFT'-alternative, linking 91 credit institutions initially, suggests de-dollarization is considerably further along than many expected (especially as Russia dumps US Treasuries at a record pace).
As Sputnik News reports,
Almost 91 domestic credit institutions have been incorporated into the new Russian financial system, the analogous of SWIFT, an international banking network.
The new service, will allow Russian banks to communicate seamlessly through the Central Bank of Russia.
It should be noted that Russia's Central Bank initiated the development of the country's own messaging system in response to repeated threats voiced by Moscow's Western partners to disconnect Russia from SWIFT.
Joining the global interbank system in 1989, Russia has become one of the most active users of SWIFT globally, sending hundreds of thousands of messages per day. In general, SWIFT provides a secure communication network for more than ten thousands of financial institutions around the world, approving transactions of trillions of US dollars.
Earlier this month Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov expressed confidence that Russia would not be disconnected from SWIFT. In her turn, Russian Central Bank First Deputy Chair Ksenia Yudaeva called upon Russian civilians and financial institutions not to dramatize the current situation.
Russian experts point to the fact that Western businesses would face severe losses if they expelled Russia from the international SWIFT system. On the other hand, the alternative system launched by Russia might reduce the negative impacts caused by measures imposed by the West, including possible disconnection from SWIFT, and diminish Western financial dominance over Russia.

Russia to support Iraq in fight against Islamic extremism
MOSCOW, March 20 (Xinhua) -- Russia will help Iraq build its defensive capabilities in the fight against Islamic extremism, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said here on Friday.
"Russia, as a friend of Iraq, will do everything necessary to strengthen its defensive capabilities and provide the (Iraqi) armed forces with abilities to counter outer threats," Rogozin said at a meeting of the Russia-Iraq Intergovernmental Commission.
He said Russia will help Iraq protect the country from terrorism forces, the Islamic State (IS) groups in particular.
"Iraq has been protecting its independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity from outside aggression," the Interfax news agency quoted Rogozin as saying.
Moscow is supporting Iraq's fight against the IS and will continue to do so in the future, he added.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, who took part in the meeting, vowed that his country will do all it can to provide security for Russians in Iraq.
On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told al-Jaafari during their talks that strengthening the Moscow-Baghdad cooperation in oil and gas, power engineering and military-technical spheres is of "special significance."
The two sides also agreed to promote joint cooperation projects in all areas and to make concerted efforts to boost regional stability and security.
