Is it just filthy lucre
One in every four Russians supports proposals to ban the U.S. dollar from circulation and savings deposits inside the country, poll results released Wednesday show.
....Among the 28 percent of respondents who favored banning the U.S. dollar from Russia, 39 percent were people with only an "elementary level of education," while more than half of the measure's opponents were "highly educated" respondents.
Explaining the bill, State Duma Deputy Mikhail Degtyaryov of the Liberal Democratic Party argued that the dollar was on the brink of collapse, and said the measure was needed to protect Russia from an economic disaster that would befall countries with a high dependency on the U.S. currency.
Like countries that sell oil for dollars.
