Russian President Vladimir Putin says the US president himself is to blame for the current high oil prices. Putin says interfering in market processes and trying to gain competitive advantages by using political tools is not the right way to regulate markets. He also warned the US over the dollar.

He pointed to how Europeans are now thinking about a billing option in addition to the dollar which will undermine the green back.
