Russia wants its currency as reserve currency for Belarus


Russia hopes to increase the volume payments in the Russian roubles between Russian and Belarusian companies, Russia's deputy economic development minister Andrei Klepach said in a statement.
In his view, Russia's priority at the current state of relations between the countries is to introduce the Russian rouble as a reserve currency for Belarus, not to transfer to the common money emmission center, reports the Russian news agency Іnterfax
