I saw this in an online Russian language newspaper to which I subscribe (link at bottom). I was unable to find an English language report, so I decided to send you a translation.
This is not exactly my own translation. It is only my edited version of a rather good google translate rendition. You can use google translate to read the rest if you want. Mind you, some of the sentences were badly rendered and would have been misleading without my edit, but my hat is generally off to Google on their excellent software.
Glazyev: US aggression can be stopped only by ditching the dollar

The only way to stop the US aggression is to get rid of dollar dependence. This was announced today, April 21, by presidential adviser Sergei Glazyev on the margins of the Yalta International Economic Forum (YAEF).
“The more aggression from Americans, the sooner they will bring matters to the final dollar collapse, because the only way for victims of American aggression to stop this aggression is to get rid of the dollar. As soon as Russia and China defeat the dollar, US military power will come to an end,” he said.
At the same time, commenting on the policies of the new US president, Glazyev noted that Donald Trump acts in accordance with the expectations of the American ruling elite.” I had no illusions that he would change politics. First, American aggressiveness in the world is due to the desire to preserve American hegemony in a situation where they have already lost leadership to China in terms of the economy. In addition to the military cudgel, the US has no other ways to get everyone to use the dollar. Therefore, they are conducting a hybrid war with the whole world in order to unload the burden of their debts onto other countries, to keep everyone in the dollar and to weaken those territories that they do not control,” Glazyev said.
According to him, “in this light, anti-Russian hysteria and growing Russophobia are a long-term factor associated with the specific interests of the American ruling elite.” “Objectively, they are conducting the global hybrid war, and subjectively this war is directed against us. And then the war, as is always the case when the global leader is changed, is waged for control over the periphery. During the First and Second World War, England played the role of the provocateur to preserve world leadership. Now America is doing the same. Trump is the spokesman for these interests,” concluded Glazyev.
As reported by EADaily, the third Yalta International Economic Forum is taking place in Crimea from April 20 to 22, at which no less than 1500 people have arrived – approximately 400 participants more than a year ago. One of the most important achievements of the organizers of the forum was the expansion of international participation – delegates from 46 countries are taking part in the YIEF. This is 20 more than a year ago.
