“What we see now, is a cruel battle with time. On the one hand, Russia and China, together with the rest of the BRICS, are trying to get rid of the dollar and form their own currency system to gain complete independence, on the other, the banking-corporate puppets in the US (all sides) are in panic and seek desperately a pretext to come to war with Russia and put an end to this threat for their plans.

You can sense the desperation of the ruling oligarchs. Their fiat world is beginning to crumble. But they will not go without a bloody fight.
