On tv they are having a replay of all the Seinfield episodes... which I have never really watched because I don't find him to be funny... but an episode happened to be on the other day and I think they had just sold an idea for a TV show and were offered a private jet they could fly anywhere they liked... remember this is from the 1990s... and each character suggested a place they could go, and the woman suggested Russia, to which the three men dismissed it as "too bleak"... that is what they thought of Russia in the 1990s... a broken country not worth visiting for free.
When it is not an enemy they aren't interested.... now the US is making it an enemy you can't get a visa to go because there is no embassy there now,
I think Russia growing and developing independently and slowly getting kicked out of international organisations run by the US or at least influenced by the US is good for Russia and actually the rest of the world because the alternative systems they have to set up to work with the rest of the world wont be controlled by the west... which is something a lot of countries are looking for but wont say out loud in fear of being attacked.
With Russia having an alternative to SWIFT it means if they get kicked off SWIFT then all the countries that want Russian gas or Russian weapons or Russian grain or Russian minerals or products will have to join the Russian alternative to SWIFT... and that includes the US if they want Russian oil and gas... which they do, and Russian Titanium to make their aircraft etc etc... which they do.
Essentially kicking Russia off SWIFT would damage SWIFT more than it damages Russia and for the rest of the world it gives them an alternative payment system that the US cannot monitor and spy on them with.
