How the West controls Russian ministries and key sectors of the economy


Many copies have been broken around the dispute over whether Russia is a "colony" or a "semi-colony" of the West. Some think so, others - otherwise, and still others do not think about it at all. It is clear that, unlike in Ukraine, the US vice president cannot open the door with his foot and sit at the head of the table in the place of the president of the country, listening to the reports of officials. However, Western control over Russia still exists, albeit not so offensive, but no less effective.


What is the essence of external control over economic and the management activities of Russia? In the West, they know everything that is happening in our country, in numbers and details, and also have the ability to influence decision-making. And this is done with our consent and at our own expense. How? Very simple: through a system of ongoing audits by international agencies of American, British and European origin.

In order not to be unfounded, here are some known facts. The respected company PricewaterhouseCoopers Audit, headquartered in London, audits the activities of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Utilities, the Ministry of Transport, the Federal Property Management Agency, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Sports, and Gazpromneft. KPMG, registered in the Netherlands, controls the RF Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development, Gazprombank, Transneft, UAC, Uralvagonzavod, as well as the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Utilities. The British Deloitte knows the whole kitchen of the Russian Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Utilities, the Ministry of Economic Development, Rosfinnadzor and the Federal Antimonopoly Service. EY (Ernst & Young) audits Sberbank, VTB, Rosselkhozbank, VEB, the Ministry of Communications and the Ministry of Natural Resources. The American Oliver Wyman also keeps the RF Central Bank on a leash.

Yes, some of our ministries are under double or even triple control. That is, all the ins and outs of key ministries and departments of the Russian Federation, as well as strategic enterprises and backbone banks are known to foreigners. But their interest is not limited to this: international audit companies keep their finger on the pulse of all other significant players in the oil and gas, metallurgy, real estate and construction, energy, woodworking, forestry, pulp and paper industries, chemical industries and media, consumer market and trade.

Not only are there no secrets for foreigners in Russia, they can also influence decision-making by issuing their recommendations. For example, the cynical pension reform in our country was carried out in accordance with the scheme provided by the IMF. And how many more “friendly” advice do our “partners” give to officials of the Central Bank, the Ministry of Finance or top managers of Sberbank every day? Moreover, according to the RF Ministry of Finance, the cost of the services of PricewaterhouseCoopers or EY costs a client on average 60 times more than any similar domestic organization.

The saddest thing is that no one is in a hurry to throw off this yoke, although such proposals have been heard for a long time. There are the following counter-arguments: without an external audit, Russian commercial structures will not be considered "transparent", therefore international investors will refuse them investments and will not be included in the ratings of Fitch and S&P. Perhaps this is true for corporations engaged in foreign economic activity, but what has government agencies to do with it, I would like to understand? However, since all our ministries and departments, as well as strategic enterprises are under external control, it means that someone needs it, and no one is against it.

    Need to understand from the beginning. If the "reformers" A. Chubais, Gaidar and company considered Western eternal enemies as a model for the further development of Russia, and drew the Russian Federation to such a model, so it will be surprising that the constitution, laws on the Central Bank and others are built and subordinated to Western rule and influence. Foreign audit and familiarization with the state of the economies of the Russian Federation (and not only) a potential enemy, only a small part of the mines laid for the independence of the Russian state, which we see in practice - the robbery of Russia for trillions of dollars and in fact becoming a raw materials colony ...

    Famous to whom? Is there a link to scientific articles confirming this?

    And then in social networks and articles of the constitution are invented on the go, and LLC "RF" print screens, and other global conspiracies.

    And about the reality - which ex-minister in which country and what he lives on - no, no ...
    Like, everything is in bulk, it's better about the global conspiracy of the West ... it's safer ...

      The fact that foreign audit companies completely control Russia is open information published in the media. You can google it.

        Perhaps the audit companies simply issue an opinion to their business partners - are they not swindlers or bankrupt Russian partners?

        By the way, an audit is an audit. If you do not believe your auditors, you invite from outside. Very common.

        You may remember that 1,5 billion was lost under Yeltsin. IMF loan. So the Swiss found him instantly. And we lost all our reports again, and did not contact the Swiss in large numbers ...)))

    If so, why are the "omniscient" imposing sanctions? Why unsubstantiated accusations of poisoning Skripals and Navalny? and many more similar questions.
    The answer is simple: a false message leads to wrong conclusions.

    Because foreign economic activity is carried out not only by corporations, but also by the state. It is obvious.

    By the way, these same American, European and British companies conduct audits of both their countries and partner countries. There are such companies in Russia, China, Japan, South Korea and other developed capitalist (yes, China is a capitalist country) countries.

    This is a normal practice in a globalized economy. It's just that at the moment it is Western companies that have the most experience and the most accurate assessment tools, therefore they are more authoritative.

        The Federal Antimonopoly Service also regulates the activities of foreign corporations on the territory of Russia. And interaction with foreign corporations is one of the aspects of the foreign economic activity of the state.

      By the way, this only confirms the thesis that the United States and its closest allies control their periphery in a similar way.

        Why immediately "control"? Auditing is not yet control, it is learning. For example, before investing in a country, is it quite logical to conduct an audit of that country (or a separate branch of its activity) in order to assess the possible benefits and risks?

        Or are the "illiberals" and "conservatives" in Russia ready to give, say, loans to other countries on parole? And, although, judging by the credit policy of the same USSR and modern Russia - yes, it is.

            What exactly is demagoguery? Is the counterparty checked for reliability before entering into a transaction?

    Ultimately, the President of the Russian Federation and the company bear full responsibility for the situation in the Russian Federation ... And whoever advises what, so someone may also advise me, but to listen to these advice, or not, I decide myself ... and I myself am responsible for the decisions I have made ... And a fool is always to blame ... you need to wipe the noodles off your ears more often ... And even before the audit of companies from the Russian Federation, NATO members can be completely prevented, there would be a desire for GDP and the company ..
