    Russia & China continue ditching US dollars in settlements in favor of national currencies, 04/09/2021.

    Gazprom Neft will switch from US dollars to yuan and rubles to pay for refueling aircraft flying to or from China, the company’s CEO Alexander Dyukov told reporters on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum.

    “We are starting in September, and by the end of the year we can transfer virtually all payments for aviation fuel in China to yuan,” Dyukov said. He added that settlements for refueling Chinese airliners at Russian airports will be converted into rubles.

    The agreement has been reached between Gazprom Neft, which operates 34 airports in China, and China's national jet fuel operator, after a lengthy period of talks regarding a move away from making payments in US dollars.

    This is the first time, however, for the Russian-Chinese aviation fuel business to transfer payments to national currencies. According to Dyukov, test settlements in yuan and rubles showed an additional economic effect.

    Dyukov also said his company and the Chinese operator plan to double total volumes of aircraft fueling both in Russia and China to some 250,000 tons by 2025. The total volume of Gazprom Neft aircraft fueling stations in China increased to 56.5 thousand tons in the first half of 2021, 12% higher than the same period last year and 29% higher than in 2019.

    Moscow and Beijing have been pushing for a greater role of their respective currencies on the global financial market and have made a number of steps to lower their US dollar holdings in the past several years.

    Removing the middle man America from getting a cut of every transaction... excellent.

    Will this result in France leaving HATO and distancing itself from most of the EU, or will this result in all of the EU reevaluating its subservience to the US... especially when the EU suffers rather more than the US does... like the sanctions against Russia... the US didn't have a lot of ties to cut so they had to get Europe involved to cut their more substantial ties to try to damage Russia and also the EU.

    Now the US is looking to China... a country that has invested time and money and resources to create trade links with the EU... and the US is trying to stop that to hurt China... but this will hurt the EU too...

    How long before the EU wakes up and realises China and Russia are not enemies at all... their biggest enemy is the US.

    How long? Years! Most of the political class in the EU is bought by the ´muricans.

    China is the largest trading partner of Australia and will remain so in the years to come.

    US, UK deal with Australia is being touted as being primarily to contain China but its primary aim will be to contain India in the long run a well thought out hedge by US, UK to enable control in IOR much into the future via proxy.

    China was never considered an enemy by any European nation. The biggest ally of China in Europe is U.K. If China was indeed considered to be an enemy why did EU members of G-7 vote against the imposition of sanctions on China? China is among the top 3 trading partners of E.U

    Russia of course is considered to be an adversary (that too by not all the European nations)

    The thing is that they pretend to be fighting terrorism, but what they are actually fighting is anyone who opposes US interests which more often than not actually puts them in bed with the very terrorists they claim to be working against.
