How Russia voluntarily surrendered its energy to the Anglo-Saxons


In recent years, we have been constantly told how Russia “rose from its knees” and is actively opposing the hostile West, led by the United States. However, the reality looks completely different, if one judges it not by beautiful words, but by real deeds.


Some time ago, the main ideologist of privatization and a fierce fighter against communism, Chubais urged “ungrateful Russians” to almost bow to the floor to the oligarchs, who, according to him, saved the country from devastation (who arranged it, Anatoly Borisovich did not specify). At the end of last year, Deputy Prime Minister Anton Siluanov, at a meeting with representatives of the IMF and the World Bank in Washington, listened to the wishes of foreign investors to conduct a “wider privatization” of state property, and then obediently put it under the hood.

Among the enterprises for transfer to private ownership was, for example, the strategically important Sovcomflot, about which we are in detail told earlier. In that publication, it was feared that the “dual-use” company might first fall into the hands of domestic oligarchs, and then go into the hands of foreigners. Right now, we will show how this mechanism works using the example of Rusal and the Eurosibenergo company, which controls the lion's share of Russian energy.

Recall that earlier these backbone enterprises belonged to billionaire Oleg Deripaska. Rusal is a giant in non-ferrous metallurgy, one of the world leaders in the production of aluminum and bauxite. Its metal is used to build Boeing and Airbus aircraft, spacecraft, and much more. Eurosibenergo is a group of companies that includes the Irkutsk Hydroelectric Power Station, the Bratsk Hydroelectric Power Station, the Krasnoyarsk Hydroelectric Power Station, the Ust-Ilimskaya Hydroelectric Power Station, 11 TPPs, as well as Vostsibugol Company LLC. In total, it serves 15 million consumers. These assets are owned by En + Oleg Deripaska. In addition, En + controls such important structures for the country as Russian Machines and GAZ Group.

Rather, all this belonged to the oligarch more recently. In April 2018, the Deripaska’s proximity to the Kremlin was followed by a tough sanctions “hitting” by the US Treasury. The shares of the metallurgical company on the stock exchange collapsed, the billionaire rushed for help to the state. Officials have demonstrated their “effectiveness” with such support measures as reasonable preferences in favor of the oligarch’s business at the expense of other market players.

Having “shugged” the businessman and not seeing any distinct support even from the Kremlin, the West proceeded to the second stage of “squeezing” his assets. According to the plan of the British Lord Barkley, a member of the board of directors of En +, Deripaska was to be deprived of control over the management of his structures. In order for Rusal to be able to continue working, the oligarch transferred control to individuals and structures that had to be coordinated with the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury (OFAC). Judge for yourself whether it sounds like news from a country that "rose from its knees", or from a third-rate colony of the West.

Surprisingly, Oleg Deripaska made a deal, and the Kremlin didn’t particularly react to this in the spirit of “we don’t let our people go.” Now out of 12 En + board members, six are US and UK citizens. Rothschild & Co., an investment bank, was very active in completing the transaction. The first fiddle in the management of Russian aluminum and Siberian energy is played by Lord Gregory Barker.

But this, alas, did not end there. Now comes the third and final stage of the “squeeze”, and, in this, the US and the UK are actively helping the state-owned VTB and Sberbank. How is this possible?

The fact is that the remaining part of Deripaska’s assets in En + went to VTB Bank as collateral. And now the state bank is selling 21,37% of En + shares to "simplify the structure of shareholders":

VTB Group has successfully emerged from a long-term investment. The transaction reflects the commercial interests of all parties involved at the time of its conclusion.

And it sells them to a subsidiary of En + itself. Particular cynicism is that it is carried out on a loan from the state Sberbank, which amounts to 110,6 billion rubles (or 1,75 billion dollars), with repayment until 2026. Brilliant: our country is “shod” at our expense.

And after that, someone will talk about the "struggle with the West" and "rising from his knees"?

      What exactly do you want to offer for our development, colleague ?! Apart from the many dots, nothing definite! Novatek is a private company that has gradually come to its current state, Gazprom is a state-owned company, so why do we need to know what is going on in Novatek? Gazprom is much more interesting to us! The article is interesting and correct; for a long time it is necessary to review the results of privatization and send the main privatizers led by Chubais to kitsch, and return the bowels to the country!

      You can return in another way, for example, by increasing taxes from enterprises with foreign owners. And if they don’t pay taxes, then take it in favor of the state.

    Offshore registration is one thing. It is simply a matter of transferring strategic assets to foreign owners with the active assistance of state banks.

    The article is correct! In a simple form, explains that no matter how much they build, Russia will NEVER be rich. Some are YES, and people NEVER. And they won’t allow it! There will NOT be facts to refute the article, there remains anger at the truth and rudeness.

      Do not tell me where you can find this quote. I could not find in the book.

      http://lib.ru/POLITOLOG/AMERICA/bzhezinskij.txt

      Only such:

      Russia, which hardly requires a reminder, remains a major geostrategic actor, despite weakened statehood and, possibly, protracted ill health. Its very presence has a tangible effect on the newly independent states within the wide Eurasian space of the former Soviet Union. She cherishes the ambitious geopolitical goals that she is increasingly proclaiming openly. As soon as it regains its power, it will also begin to exert a significant influence on its western and eastern neighbors. In addition, Russia has yet to make its fundamental geostrategic choice in terms of relations with America: is it a friend or an enemy? She, perhaps, perfectly feels that in this respect she has serious choices on the Eurasian continent. Much depends on the development of domestic
      provisions and especially on whether Russia will become a European democracy or -
      again - by the Eurasian empire. In any case, she undoubtedly remains
      the protagonist, even though she lost several of her
      "pieces", as well as some of the key positions on the Eurasian chess
      blackboard.

      To what extent should economic assistance be provided to Russia, which will inevitably lead to the strengthening of Russia both politically and militarily, and to what extent should the newly independent states be helped in their efforts to protect and strengthen their independence? Can Russia be
      powerful and at the same time democratic state? If she regains
      power, if she wants to regain her lost imperial possessions and can
      Does it then be both an empire and a democracy?
      The US policy towards important geopolitical centers such as Ukraine and Azerbaijan does not allow to get around this issue, and America, therefore, faces a difficult dilemma regarding the tactical alignment of forces and strategic goals. The internal recovery of Russia is necessary for the democratization of Russia and, ultimately, for Europeanization. However, any restoration of its imperial power can harm both of these goals. Moreover, it is precisely on this issue that disagreements may arise between America and some European states, especially in the case of the enlargement of the EU and NATO. Should Russia be considered a candidate for possible members of both of these structures? And then what to do about Ukraine?
      The costs associated with preventing Russia from entering these structures can be extremely
      high - the idea of ​​one’s own will be realized in the Russian consciousness
      Russia's special destiny, however, the consequences of a weakening EU and NATO
      can also be destabilizing.

    Strange manner - translate any redistribution of business into the plane of "getting up from one's knees." This site recently had information -

    Russia has become one of the largest suppliers of oil and petroleum products in the USA

    This is after all the sanctions imposed, against Rosneft, spitting from a high bell tower on all these restrictions, the United States will not dare to impose sanctions and buy Venezuelan oil from it. Does this mean that the United States is in the "hydrocarbon pose named after Alexander Grigoryevich"? Yes, it seems no, but here yes, they are wrung out, but what does it have to "get up from your knees"?
    As for Sberbank, it can be called a state one with a stretch, the Central Bank has a controlling stake, and it is essentially not controlled by the state. In my imagination, the phrases “citizen Nabiullina” and “with a ... rag” are increasingly being added to the same sentence with several indefinite articles.

    https://vbulahtin.livejournal.com/3314118.html

    Brilliant: our country is “shod” at our expense.

    If you consider these funds yours, you can, as a preoccupied taxpayer, make personal claims to German Oskarovich and Elvira Sakhipzadovna.

        This is our former, 123. And this is not a redistribution of business, but weaning.

        It was conditionally ours, in fact we did not have the opportunity to dispose of before. Even in Soviet times, the rights of citizens to possess and dispose of mineral resources were purely declarative.

        Everything around is folk, everything around is yours.

        fellow In reality, it was decided for us how and where to get, where to sell or donate, how to manage the money received from the sale. The same can be attributed to banks. Ordinary people could not affect it in any way. It’s like with children, like at home and all their own, but dad and mom dispose of everything, well, or, as is now customary in “Europe,” parent No. 1 and No. 2. laughing
        As for weaning, in order to carry out the redistribution, it is necessary to take away some part from someone, otherwise the redistribution will not work. In fact, we are talking about the same thing. If I’m not mistaken, I mentioned the word “squeeze”. hi

          123, the main thing is not possession, but that who benefits from the national treasure — for the whole people, as in the USSR (albeit with slight reservations) or a tiny number of thieves who are foreign.
          In my opinion, a process is being activated with a final solution to the issue called Russia.

            ... the main thing is not possession, but that who benefits from the national treasure - for the whole people, as in the USSR (albeit with a few reservations) or a negligible bunch of thieves who are foreign.

            Under socialism, as well as under capitalism, the right to dispose of this very national property belonged to the ruling elite; they also received more privileges and material wealth. I also cannot say that unequivocally during the USSR the "people's heritage" was used more efficiently. Generally. this question needs to be delved into and compared in detail. Under socialism, the "party nomenclature" ruled the economy as it wanted to say, that the result (in the form of material wealth) for ordinary citizens was brilliant, my language does not turn out. How much it took to support the "friendly" regimes or the Communist Parties in the "non-friendly" and how much the "insignificant bunch of thieves" are now pulling out is still to be counted and compared. I doubt that the difference will be big. However, the topic is vast, the field for discussion is huge.
            The conditional "elite" in the USSR and modern Russia was not very different, moreover, the current one is largely composed of former party and Komsomol members. These are the same people, the conditions have simply changed. "Natural selection" in the "elite" works regardless of the social system. As a result, approximately the same people with similar moral qualities fall there. Human nature is difficult to change.
            In fact, the difference is in a much greater stratification of society, and this is very striking. I also do not like it and in this regard, something needs to be done. It is difficult to say exactly what, but in my opinion, a new redistribution of property (complete nationalization of the economy) will not lead to anything good, "directors" will manage the economy and, as a result, typical representatives of the same "bunch of thieves" will fall into these positions. We must look for another way. hi

                I’m not sure that these measures will prevent the ingenious "Komsomol capitalists" from entering the leadership. In my opinion, you are talking about the unified management of the country by a supercomputer. Regulation of everything, including production, consumption, will reach personal life. In fact, this is a new social experiment. The prospects are tempting, it only bothers that the experiments are carried out again over Russia. In my opinion, we have already been enough "world laboratory". Maybe first try on someone else, and then, taking into account the mistakes of others ... Such measures are partially being introduced in China, maybe we'll wait and see?

                    I completely agree with you, and therefore I propose to look at the Chinese experience from the side.

                    Here comes a new scam with the "sale" of Sberbank.

                    I’m not sure that this is a scam, but rather a vivid indicator that the Central Bank does not belong to the country, a separate office, like the Fed in the United States. Regular sales transaction. The following configuration emerges from here, the gold reserve is “pledged”, we just have it in custody, so to speak, a contribution to participate in the “global financial system”, like the chips in the casino, how much you have deposited, for the amount and money in circulation we have . Payment for Sberbank will go to the "noble cause" of saving the world financial system from the impending crisis. We are taking a close look at the theme of the existence of a "shadow world government."
                    There is, however, in this news and a little good, in fact, in the country there are two parallel financing systems and now the second (controlled by the government) is “expanding the business”, which means that they have accumulated money and plans to use the asset, it used to be VTB, apparently it is already not enough. So, there is hope for development.

        It is necessary to establish by law a bar to which one can grow rich (and to encourage it), but beyond which it is easy to nationalize surpluses (for the same rewards, for example).

        Well, a person likes to build factories, please, but if your fortune is on an over rich border, then give it yourself, distribute the extra, or the state will take it on its own.

        But for this, the tax should work ideally, considering incomes and fortunes both domestically and abroad.

          Firstly, it is almost impossible to put into practice, the ways - how to circumvent the law - are in Russia, the severity of laws is mitigated by the non-enforcement of their implementation. Secondly, who and how will determine the very "bar"? This paves the way for corruption. Third, how to promote? Certificate of honor?

          Well, a person likes to build factories, please, but if your fortune is on an over rich border, then give it yourself, distribute the extra, or the state will take it on its own.

          The amount that a person can spend on himself has a border. Further, several reasons become an incentive for enrichment. First, money becomes just a tool, they are needed as a planer for a carpenter. By taking away the surplus, you are depriving you of the opportunity to develop further, to build the same plants or a spaceship. The second reason is power and social status. If there is a similar restriction, then both are limited. And people are mostly naughty and proactive. The ban will be bypassed or ignored. The incentive to enrichment will disappear. As a result, we come to a "new socialism", only for a part of society a bottle of vodka for three in the park is replaced with a bottle of cognac in a luxury villa in a society of the same "limited". Why try further if everyone just takes it away? Well, finally, another reason is banal greed. A man just rowing for himself and can not stop. Try to check this and regularly select the excess ...

          But for this, the tax should work ideally, considering incomes and fortunes both domestically and abroad.

          Without creating a system of total control, none of the above can be implemented. We come to the need for globalization, a world government, or a new iron curtain and construction in a single country. This we have already passed. Social justice is good, but maybe, let the neighbors do this experiment, and we will see first?
          Theoretically, you can try to partially solve the problem by introducing electronic money. Two completely isolated, non-interconnected systems, one money for real consumption, the other for business, equipment, factories, investments and so on. You have two accounts, on one, "production" money, on the other for personal consumption in a certain proportion. But this is rather a utopia; in practice, it is almost impossible to implement. Let's face the same reasons mentioned above.

            If money works, it’s good, but many people simply gather dust in garages, safes, and azure shores (as a reserve for a rainy day).
            Who defines the bar? Well, the minimum wage is determined, multiplied by x and here is the max bar.
            The tax is somehow collected, it’s just 13%, and then bam and 100.
            How to promote? Well, philanthropy has always been held in high esteem, the hospital named after the merchant Kalashnikov should stand for centuries and be guarded by the state, people who work not for the sake of money, questions, such as - why don't they ask if they will take everything away? Besides, who is talking about everything here? There are 6 yachts and well done, but without the seventh somehow somehow, or you get a billion a month - get it, but no more. Is there really a little incentive for development? Not enough money for a spaceship? Unite, and the state is obliged to help such, because this is his interest. Which curtain? How much has withdrawn, how much has entered - everything is already considered, there are simply no limits for withdrawal today, but they should be, or there is a good reason for what.
            A person cannot physically work more efficiently than lards once others, capital works (i.e. other people give their labor (the source of their wild efficiency) for renting this capital and a salary sufficient for survival), and if this capital will work not only often successfully born heir or nimble Ostap, but also the society that helped him put together this capital (well, now no man can build a factory with his own hands without the help of others), this is capitalism with a certain degree of social justice.

            We’ll look at the neighbors ... it seems to me that we are looking at them too much, it’s time, probably, to live our own life ...

              Remember why Depardieu moved to Russia? Introduce such an innovation and the caravan for the "hill" will reach. Everyone will run away.

              How to promote? Well, philanthropy has always been held in high esteem, the hospital named after the merchant Kalashnikov should stand for centuries and be protected by the state, people who work not for the sake of money, questions such as - why don't they ask why they work if they take everything away.

              Most of them will not appreciate this innovation, exchanging a few billion for an encouraging pat on the shoulder and renaming the street (which usually happens posthumously) is far from a joyful prospect. People working not for money, a scissor minority, maybe a dozen will be typed, the rest (see paragraph above).

              There are 6 yachts and well done, but without the seventh somehow somehow, or you get a billion a month - get it, but no more. Is there really a little incentive for development?

              And why then to fence the garden? Say that Chubais will now have only six yachts and not one more. Public opinion will not change. In this case, they will again withdraw money abroad.

              Not enough money for a spaceship? Unite, and the state is obliged to help such, because this is his interest.

              Co-financing has long been applied.

              Which curtain? How much has withdrawn, how much has entered - everything is already considered, there are simply no limits for withdrawal today, but they should be, or there is a good reason for what.

              If you limit the withdrawal of capital, no one will enter. Sense, if taken away? We also need to create a new service that will evaluate whether there are good circumstances or not, because there are different cases, you can’t write down everyone in the law.

              A person cannot physically work more efficiently than lards once others, capital works (i.e. other people give their labor (the source of their wild efficiency) for renting this capital and a salary sufficient for survival), and if this capital will work not only often successfully born heir or nimble Ostap, but also the society that helped him put together this capital (well, now no man can build a factory with his own hands without the help of others), this is capitalism with a certain degree of social justice.

              Forgive me, but in real life there is usually no justice and, most likely, will not. I understand that these people did not earn money with bloody calluses, but no matter how hard they try to share everything in fairness, all this will lead to a bloody redistribution. In addition, people are more annoyed not by the fact that Vekselberg has exactly 7 yachts, but by the fact that they will never be able to afford at least a distant standard of living in their life. If a miracle happens and, for example, all citizens decide to raise their wages by a million. Presented? It seems that life immediately succeeded, but prices will skyrocket, industry will rise, because production costs will rise incredibly and try to send something for export.

              We’ll look at the neighbors ... it seems to me that we are looking at them too much, it’s time, probably, to live our own life ...

              Sorry, but I began to live behind the “look” of my hectic life 100 years ago. As for me, an experiment on someone else is better. I am not against social justice, but I just don’t see how to achieve this without drowning in blood.

      Yuri, I have little idea what Rogers writes, just the surname met, but to consider that everything is due to some kind of "waiter from Vinnitsa" and his publications, in my opinion, is a bust. It also seems to me that you are overly emotional about this, because the conclusion that we “will always go bent into an arc” is made on the basis of publications, specifically this and the like. The authors may have different views on events, and besides, they cannot possess complete information. Tomorrow they will publish the article of the conditional “new Rogers”, where he will write in detail that it was actually such a plan and now we have circumvented the sanctions and seized the American aluminum market or something like that, after that we should finally straighten, straighten chest wheel and take a watermelon under the armpits?
      All these limits, spin-ups, seizures, takeovers, bankruptcies continue throughout human history. Do not translate this into the plane "bent-unbent." Take care of the spine. hi

      Bravo! Wonderful slogan. good And people like him so much, it’s very nice when they tell you - it's all yours. yes Apparently, it started from here - everything around is collective farm, everything around is yours. fellow
      But this is a cursory glance. Belongs to, means is in someone else's ownership, which implies the exercise of the rights and opportunities for the possession, appropriation, distribution and use of property. Can you tell me what mechanisms of realization of the indicated rights and opportunities the people had, or you personally, as a representative of the people, or, if you want, a "taxpayer"? In my opinion, none. request Based on the foregoing, the belonging of all the wealth of the USSR to the people was purely declarative and had nothing to do with reality. The party nomenclature ruled the "people's property" on behalf of the people, now they are not hiding behind the name of the people. In some ways, this is even more honest. Another issue is the “justice” of the distribution of material goods, but this is a slightly different topic. hi

        And for me, so highlighted in bold, this is the main question, 123.
        I recently read interesting information about Henry Ford. And I think that such a capitalist would be very welcome in our country, but the time did end in the States, and “ours,” I don’t know who they are, that you can work worthyly paying workers and engineers, and even do not suspect. This Ford understood that the poor man would not buy his products, and these were not going to create anything.

            123rd! I do not hope so, I myself was a micro-capitalist, it is difficult to combine fair distribution and profit.
            Just compared Ford and "our" capitalists ", although what to compare the giant and thieves.

    If you consider these funds yours, you can, as a preoccupied taxpayer, make personal claims to German Oskarovich and Elvira Sakhipzadovna.

    Yes, these funds are mine too. But there is no reason for Gref and Nabiullina to make a claim, they are only performers. It makes sense to those who appointed them to these posts and do not remove, apparently, everything suits.

      A bit strange logic, claims are usually made at the location (in this case, money). If you have a complaint about the purchased product, contact the store, not the Ministry of Commerce, if the essence of the complaint is to dispose of the money you consider yours, but directly to the bank, in extreme cases, to a higher-level (or supervisory) organization or to the bank owner. True, there is one caveat; you will have to confirm the ownership of funds specifically for you. winked I'm afraid this will cause some difficulties, all that you have in this case is a "mustache, paws and tail."



      Apparently, in this particular case, we have dissatisfaction with the existing system of distribution and management of property, just making claims "to those who appointed and do not remove them to these posts" does not make practical sense. There is another way, to advance yourself to the place of the same “who appointed them to their posts”, but I’m afraid that you have few chances here as well, just in case, take an interest in the rating first. I am afraid that there are a few more of those whom, to one degree or another, are satisfied.hi

    Strange manner - translate any redistribution of business into the plane of "getting up from one's knees."

    That is, now it's just a "redistribution of business"? By God, it would be better to refrain from commenting and just kept silent.
    And about getting up from your knees, answer: the country, which the US Treasury dictates, who should manage its metallurgy and energy, is entitled to be considered sovereign?

      With all due respect, this expression can be fully attributed to your account. hi

      And about getting up from your knees, answer: the country, which the US Treasury dictates, who should manage its metallurgy and energy, is entitled to be considered sovereign?

      Firstly, complete sovereignty does not exist, to one degree or another, all countries depend on anyone. As far as I imagine, you consider the only sovereign state of the United States, they at least depend on the Fed, which drove this state into astronomical debts, to one degree or another depend on the position of other states. In the same Venezuela, the oil industry used to belong to the United States, they can’t do anything, they are trying, but, despite all the efforts, nothing comes of it. Venezuelan oil is bought from Rosneft and nothing. You may ask who owns the US auto industry. How do you think this means that the United States is in a knee-elbow position?
      We do not have complete information on this particular transaction, on the basis of which certain decisions were made, we cannot objectively judge.
      As for the sovereignty proper, recently I came across the following definition:

      It is the ability of the national elite to make the decisions it wants, without unacceptable damage to itself and its country.

      In my opinion, not one country falls under this definition of a completely sovereign state.
      The criteria by which you determine who is "closer to the floor", arbitrary, have no clear rationale. This is just your subjective opinion. And you are promoting it for specific practical purposes, creating public opinion of a certain direction. hi

So, dear Russians, you are not only a “second oil,” as one of your gentlemen put it, but also “spare parts.” Therefore: drink less alcohol, lead a healthy lifestyle .... to the delight of future buyers of your organs. yes

      We don’t need a coronavirus, the shares of Russian companies are underestimated so much.
      Well, the behavior of the Chinese is quite reasonable, there is enough finance, they are buying up at a low price, part of it will then be sold at a higher price.
