The United States announced the interception of a billion dollars from Russia for Haftar


The authorities of Malta seized a batch of "counterfeit" Libyan dinars, equivalent to $ 1,1 billion, printed by the State Sign of Russia and intended for the government of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar. This is stated in an official statement published on the website of the US State Department.


This incident reiterates the need for Russia to end its destabilizing actions in Libya

- said in a statement.

The State Department notes that the interception of currency occurred on May 26, 2020. But the influx of "counterfeit" money printed in recent years in Russia has exacerbated economic the situation in Libya. At the same time, Washington reaffirmed its determination to cooperate with the UN and its partners in order to prevent the undermining of the "sovereignty and stability" of Libya.

The Americans clarified that the Russians received an order to print "counterfeit" money from an "illegal parallel organization." They believe that the Central Bank of Libya, whose main office is located in Tripoli, which is controlled by the Government of National Accord, is the country's only legitimate central bank.

We remind you that the PNS did not declare this money illegal or "counterfeit." Since 2016, the State Sign of Russia has officially been printing this money for the Libyan government, controlled by a popularly elected parliament sitting in Tobruk and opposing the PNS.

It must be added that currently in Libya there is a civil war and the country is conditionally divided into two parts. The western part is under the control of the PNS, where Islamists predominate, and the eastern part of the country is controlled by the Libyan national army of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, reporting to the parliament. Both parts of Libya have their own central bank, but currencies differ slightly and are recognized by both parties. Dinars for PNS are printed by the British company De La Rue.

At the same time, Malta is intercepting money for the second time for Haftar. The first time this happened in November 2019. Malta authorities claim these detentions are not related to policies, but are exclusively a legal issue, since Valletta only recognizes the PNS in Tripoli.

    I understand correctly, Malta took the first batch because Haftara does not recognize, after that they send the second batch through ...... Malta belay
    Such "quick wit" is characteristic exclusively for employees of the State Department. When psaki decree when it ends? I miss her.

    Even if you imagine that the truth was printed and sent, why is it “counterfeit”?

    Both parts of Libya have their own central bank, but currencies differ slightly and are recognized by both parties. Dinars for PNS are printed by the British company De La Rue.

    Two central banks, both sides recognize the other currency. But for some reason, British counterfeiters are printing the "right" money, and the State Sign is not the right one.
    What they lead to is not clear, they will probably impose sanctions against England.

      How can one counterfeit not recognize the other?
      That's why the world - friendship - chewing gum. Between currencies. And the fact that this or that power is supported by this money is a trifle.

    The contract for the seal of Libyan dinars was signed in 2015 between Gosznak JSC and the head of the Central Bank of Libya, approved by the Libyan parliament, noted on Smolenskaya Square. The Libyan side made the necessary prepayment, now Goznak, as part of the fulfillment of its obligations under the contract, sent cargo with printed Libyan banknotes to the Central Bank of Libya in the city of Tobruk.

    "At the same time, we proceed from the fact that these funds are necessary to maintain the stable functioning of the entire Libyan economy," the statement said on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

    In the conditions of de facto diarchy in Libya, two Central Banks are now operating, the Russian Foreign Ministry noted. One of them is located in Tripoli, where the internationally recognized Government of National Accord, led by Faiz Saraj, functions. Another Central Bank is located in the city of Benghazi, its head was also appointed by the popularly elected Libyan parliament and, accordingly, has the necessary international legitimacy.

    Thus, according to the Foreign Ministry, the false statements are not Libyan dinars, but American statements.

    25 years ago, on May 11, 1991, the Verkhovna Rada voted to introduce the national currency.

    This is when the USSR still existed. That is, money other than the money of the Central Bank of the USSR, Ukraine decided to print while still being part of the USSR. And here they’re rubbing about Haftar that he is allegedly doing the wrong thing, that he introduces money for the greater half of the country by decision of the Libyan Parliament (the highest legislative body of the State of Libya, elected on June 25, 2014) ...
