Vinokurov E., Grichik M. (2022) New concept of international reserve assets: Security, diversification and nonconventional approaches. Voprosy Ekonomiki, 12:24-43. (In Russian)

Financial sanctions have undermined confidence in traditional reserve currencies. A systemic and complete revision of the conceptual approaches to managing international reserve assets is due. The current framework of the international financial system does not offer any off-the-shelf solutions to enable safeguarding the integrity of reserves and maintaining macroeconomic stability
