Vladimir Putin says that Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan will have same currency

Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan may introduce a single currency in the future within the Eurasian Economic Union between the three former Soviet republics, according to Russian Prime Minister and future President Vladimir Putin.

Putin is the architect of the so called Eurasian Union, a new entity supposedly meant to promote cooperation both with Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, as of 2012.

“I think we’ll reach a level [of integration] as a result of the negotiating process and find a comrpomise when we are able to have a common currency and agree macroeconomic policies,” Putin said during his televised Q&A session with the people of Russia Thursday.
