So I've heard in a lot of chats that all of the West's super-sanctions of Russia, including kicking Russia out of SWIFT, is just going to bring Russia closer to China, as they work to create an alternative financial system that breaks the US dollar's hegemony and ushers in a "multipolar" world.

But, to be quite honest, I just don't see it. China is already leaving Russia on its own here for the most part, and China and Russia both are in too intense a debt to try anything that ambitious anyway.
