Yuan-ruble trading surges more than 1,000% as China and Russia draw closer together amid US tensions

(Business Insider) Trading of China’s yuan and Russia’s ruble has soared more than 1,000% since the war in Ukraine began, according to data reported by Bloomberg, as the two countries strengthen ties.

Monthly yuan-ruble volumes have risen 1,067% to just under $4 billion since Russia invaded Ukraine in late February, Bloomberg said Tuesday.

The two countries have sought to strengthen ties this year, announcing a “no limits” friendship directly aimed at countering the influence of the US over the global economy.
