Why gold from Russia began to rapidly flow to the UK


According to RBC, last year Russia set a record for gold exports to the UK, increasing its volume by eight times. In addition to the yellow metal, London bought twice as much platinum and two and a half times silver. Why is this information inconsistent?


So, let's try to figure out what happened. According to the Federal Customs Service, in 2019 Russia sold 5,33 billion dollars worth of precious metal to the United Kingdom. For comparison, in 2017, exports to the UK amounted to 10,4 tons, and two years later - already 113,5 tons. The price of gold is rising, the budget has received money, but is it worth it to rejoice in this "deal of the century"?

Why is it to London?


As you know, the United Kingdom is the world's largest “golden hub”, an international center for its trade and storage. Both non-resident investors and London itself could buy Russian gold in anticipation of the expected Brexit. In 2019, about 9 thousand yellow metal ingots were taken to the island from Russia.

From the UK, a significant part of it can subsequently migrate to China or India. These countries are actively increasing the size of their gold reserves. In addition, China bought directly from Russia last year a precious metal worth $ 21 million, Switzerland - 133 million, Kazakhstan - $ 247 million, thereby increasing its purchases from us by 28 times.

Why is it Russia?


Why buy up the rising gold price of the above countries, everything is clear, but why Russia should sell it? Some domestic economists argue that exporting gold is now profitable, as the price of yellow metal rises, mining provides jobs, tax revenue and GDP growth. But there is another view of this problem.

Some time ago on the "Reporter" came out publication with the heading “The trend is alarming: has gold begun to slowly“ flow away ”from Russia?” In it, we described in detail how yellow metal is taking revenge more and more quickly in relation to an unsecured dollar. All leading powers are buying gold, which is the main defensive asset and at the same time growing in value.

Politics In this regard, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation could only be greeted earlier: our country was ahead of China, rising to fifth place in the world ranking of the largest holders of this precious metal. We will maintain this pace, and soon we will rise even higher, bypassing Italy and France. Given that Russia itself produces it, this is quite realistic. Jobs are saved, taxes are paid without selling gold abroad. Its price for 2019 increased by 25%.

But, instead of raising the country to fourth, or even third place in the world, financial authorities began to sell precious metals abroad, and not to anyone, but to Britain, which was openly unfriendly to us. Inevitably, an analogy arises with a drain in the bathtub, through which excess water flows. We can observe something similar with the means of the NWF, where the "surplus" of oil excess profits are stored.
The funds accumulated there are already enough so that they can be invested in your own the economybut our system liberals are in power cranked up scheme with the sale of Sberbank to the government of the Russian Federation by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation at the expense of this money.

As a result, the volume of liquid assets of the NWF will drop below 7% of GDP, and you will have to forget about your own economy. One gets the impression that something similar began to happen with gold: its "surplus" is carefully dumped to our Western "partners."

          Well, the EBN monument is not GDP, Medvedev set it ... I remember Dima was fired ... Although, I am not a fan of GDP, if you talk about it ... But I consider Navalny to be enemies of Russia and the people ... , this is more than obvious, and when I hear from some bandits who were good in the 90s, or stupid teenagers who did not live in the 90s, that in those days there was almost a golden age in Russia, I feel sick this lie ... It was a feast of a handful of bandits during the plague, that's what the 90s in Russia !!! Although Volodin, with his cries that Russia needs to completely abolish pensions, is no better than Medvedev, if not worse ...

            Well, count. Nobody bothers you to think so. It’s just when in a country that is building a democratic society (are you not against such building?) If the opposition parties snickered in approval. Need a character swaying this swamp. Otherwise ... Otherwise, a country on a historical scale has already undergone this recently. Only then was the Soviet margin of safety. And now we have such a minimum margin.

            The USA backdoors are not Russian patriots, it is more than obvious, and when I hear from some ...

            Well, of course. All that comes from the USA is debauchery and violence. And our attempts to find ourselves in the world community are exclusively order and stability. laughing You yourself quoted Volodin. So maybe the truth is somewhere in between?

              Well, Navalny will bring nothing but the new 90s to Russia, and the margin of safety to survive them is not the same today, nor will the people tolerate it, the patient is not the same and the new 90s is a civil war, without options ... the United States is the enemy of Russia, and they have never brought anything to Russia and will not bring anything, it is a parasitic country that lives off the robbery of foreign states.

                    Solzhenitsyn didn’t even accept white immigration and didn’t consider him a decent person, and there were reasons for that, and the GDP played too much. It seems that grandfather has not yet understood the essence of Russian fables and phrases -

                    You won’t please all friends, you’ll only hurt yourself ...

                    Walking around the Yeltsin swamp does not benefit either the Russian Federation or the GDP, some hate him for having climbed out of this swamp, others hate him for not daring to move away from its shores for 20 years ... In the end, you can be in the role the hero of the song of the group Agatha Christie -

                    And they both say that you are not our enemy, you are not our friend ... Not there, not here ...

                    And nobody needs such a person, he doesn’t suit anyone and is useless to everyone because he does not meet their needs ... Everyone needs a directional movement vector, not a pendulum ...

    Not Russia sold gold for $ 5, 3 billion, but the oligarch Grigory Berezkin.
    Could sell it to Russia and not for dollars, but for rubles or invest in the country's economy.
    The political power in Russia is of an oligarchic type, hence all the troubles for the common people, as well as social injustice.

The founder of the center is the presidential administration, its head Anton Vaino heads the board of trustees. Many of the center’s projects were initiated by the private Yeltsin Foundation, established in 2000, headed by the daughter of the first president, Tatyana Yumasheva.

    Selling and buying gold is a state theme. The Central Bank of the Russian Federation acquires it from miners.

    The Central Bank sells gold on the London Stock Exchange - a standard procedure. The application was for a relatively large volume at a good price - why not sell? What's so unusual?
    There was a period of rising gold prices and falling yields on American papers, but even against the backdrop of coronavirus, gold managed to fail by 4,5% with a high risk of falling sharply after the threat of the epidemic was removed.
    Whether it is advisable to build up gold reserves in the absence of investment in the economy is sooooooooooooooob.

    Russia does not touch its gold reserves. Stock for Russia is sufficient and can be replenished at any time. The stock is replenished at the expense of state funds from domestic manufacturers. What the state does not need to replenish stocks is subject to sale on the foreign market. In my opinion, this should be clear even to a complete idiot.

    It is more profitable to sell gold in parts. But about something else. Read the manual for March 6.03.20, XNUMX. An article about the city of Rzhev in Komsomolskaya Pravda.
