But Russia paid off its debt to the IMF ahead of schedule eight years ago.

  

Tha nk you Enrique,but does this mean that Russias central bank from 2005 no longer was foreign controlled? N Starikovs Rouble Nationalization... discussing events from 2010 gives a different impression.

But in talk of symbols - how many of RTs followers know the actual status of Russias dependency on IMF?

Its is to be welcomed if Russia becomes a genuinely independent actor as a positive contributor to a multipolar world. But in talk of symbols - how many of RTs followers know the actual status of Russias dependency on IMF?
That Russia, due to the treason or naiveté of Yeltsin and Gorbachev sold out its independence regarding its monetary system. That important aspect should not be hidden from sight.

Good design, good symbol!

That symbol transmits strength, equilibrium and faith (for its similarity with the Orthodox cross)

The II on the original dollar symbol, are based on the Heracles columns used in the Spanish piece of eight coin (Spanish dollar), widely used in both North America and Southern China during the XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries.
