In a post on his Facebook page, Al Marsoumi said, “The SWIFT system, which is the abbreviated name of the Association for Financial Communications between Banks in the World, links more than 11,000 financial institutions operating in more than 200 countries, making them the backbone of the world’s remittance system. It is the most powerful financial weapon with which any country can be punished, as it will cut off the country from a large part of the global financial system. 

Russia is the second largest country within “SWIFT” in terms of the number of users after the United States, and the volume of financial transactions linked to Russia through “SWIFT” reaches hundreds of billions of dollars annually.

Al-Marsoumi pointed out that “most of the Russian investments in Iraq, especially the companies operating in the oil licensing fields, who pay their costs and profits in kind, that is, in return for a certain amount of oil produced, have been affected, in addition to other difficulties related to how Russian companies implement their secondary contracts with other companies and how to finance them, which requires searching for a mechanism.” new ones to settle accounts with the Iraqi government, or this may lead to the withdrawal of Russian companies from the Iraqi fields.”  LINK
