LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Russia is on the path to abstaining from the dollar in its financial and trade dealings because of strained relations with the United States and to avoid US sanctions, the French newspaper Les Echos said on Friday.

Russia has signed agreements to adopt national currencies with a number of countries that also have strained relations with the United States, such as Iran, Turkey and China, as well as Moscow's strengthening of its reserves of currencies of the countries of the `` BRICS '', where it was estimated in 2018 at $ 125 billion .

Moscow's policy of reducing its dependence on the dollar has stabilized the ruble and even strengthened by 7.6 percent against the dollar.

Brazil captain "opens fire" on Messi

 

LONDON (Reuters) - Brazil captain Thiago Silva lashed out at Argentine star Lionel Messi on Sunday after the end of the Super Clasico between the two traditional rivals.

Messi scored the only goal of the game 14 minutes after the start of the game, after receiving a penalty, he delivered to himself and shot strongly to the right of the goalkeeper, but Alison Baker, the protector of the Samba lair managed to stop it, before the ball returned to the Argentine magician, who easily placed inside Curling.

Commenting on the penalty, Silva said: "Messi takes advantage of his great popularity, where he is protected by referees. This is not an excuse or justification for defeat."

"Messi imposes his prestige and control over the referees. We talk to some of the players in Spain and they have told us that too. Lionel is always trying to control the games this way and that is not true."

"If the same happens with Casemiro, the referee will not make a decision. We are hostage to this situation. Referees must put Messi on the pitch, everyone inside the green rectangle."

"Messi does not have this advantage in the Champions League because the referees are tougher, but in Spain and with Argentina the situation is quite different."

US President Donald Trump attacked former US ambassador to Ukraine Mary Jovanovich as she testified on Friday in the US House of Representatives as part of an inquiry into his accountability.

"Everywhere Mary Jovanovic went, things turned. She started in Somalia, and see how it ended up there," Trump tweeted.

He added: "The US president has an absolute right to appoint ambassadors," stressing that he has "a strong foreign policy and very strong, very different from the policies of previous administrations."

The Democrat, who is leading the investigation, cut the course of testimony to tell Jovanovic that the US president had just launched an attack against it.

Jovanovic was surprised by Trump's words. "I don't think I had that ability, either in Mogadishu, Somalia, or anywhere else," she said. "This is very scary."

Jovanovic was quickly summoned from Kiev to Washington in May after being defamed by Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Jovanovic vowed not to be "politically biased" and asserted that she had served the United States for 33 years.

On the second day of public television sessions on accountability, Mary Jovanovic explained how she was fighting corruption in Ukraine and how the Trump administration suddenly returned to Washington earlier this year.

The US House of Representatives session yesterday followed a long hearing on the Ukrainian issue, which began last September, and was conducted secretly to isolate Trump.

A US intelligence official revealed a phone call on July 25 between the US president and his Ukrainian counterpart.

 

The issue prompted Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, to open an investigation on Sept. 25 on suspicion of abuse of power by the president by asking for help from a foreign country to intervene in the election, in an attempt to discredit his political opponent, Joe Biden.

The speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, earlier, that investigations into the removal of the US president will focus on his behavior towards Ukraine.
