Moscow promised "powerful response" to disconnect Russia from SWIFT


On April 29, 2021, on the last day of its plenary session, the European Parliament is to consider a draft resolution on Russia. Before that, Russophobic MEPs proposed colleagues to abandon oil and gas from Russia, stop the implementation of Nord Stream 2 and disconnect Moscow from the SWIFT payment system. They use the "Navalny case", "tensions on the Ukrainian border" and "the explosions in the Czech Republic in 2014" as an excuse. The parliamentarians have only to vote “for” or “against”.


The published draft resolution says that the EP insists that the European Union reduce its dependence on Russia for energy resources. It emphasizes that if the Russian Federation commits "aggression" against Ukraine, the EU must make it clear to Moscow that "the consequences will be serious." In addition, all assets of Russian oligarchs and their families in the EU, “close to the Kremlin,” are proposed to be “frozen”.

On the eve, on April 28, the special representative of the President of Russia for international cooperation in the field of information security, head of the Department of International Information Security of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Andrei Krutskikh, said that the threats to disconnect the Russian Federation from SWIFT are unlikely to materialize. However, if this happens, then Moscow will no doubt give a "powerful response" to such an unfriendly step.

Let them try. About technological and militarypolitical Disconnection insurance should be asked by specific specialists. But our armored train is on the side track, and, of course, complete confidence in the strength and power of the response is undoubtedly present.

- said the diplomat.

We remind you that EP resolutions are advisory and not binding. But no one prevents the EU countries and institutions from implementing this or that approved document.

    No answers are needed, they are not worth it, you yourself need to start living by your own rules, and for this, for example, to legally allow Russian residents to conclude international treaties with foreign partners only in 2 currencies in shares of 50 to 50, where one of the currencies is necessarily the ruble , and the second - by mutual agreement of the parties ...

    Isn't there a reason to go to meet them and suspend, at least for a year, the squandering of valuable resources for pieces of paper, for which, due to the sanctions, we cannot buy what we need?

    Strange movie.)

    And the Western press writes that, on the contrary, it is they who "with alarm and concern" observe the joint Russian-Chinese preparations to abandon the dollar and exit the SWIFT payment system.

    If there is a possibility, we must give up this "Swift" ourselves. If this is not possible, you should make it appear. How long can you listen to the blackmail of these "Euroterrorists"?

      This is the property of our sons of bitches, and if confiscation, then it should be in favor of the Russian budget.
      The West is pocketing too much of our valuable, it has already gotten used to it, and it will be so as long as we ourselves agree with it ...

    If they disconnect you from the SWIFT payment system, they seem to cut your veins, which means the sure and slow death of the country. You will not be able to buy or sell anything other than FR. I hope they don’t do this to you, although the noose around your neck is tightening more and more.

      How? No money - no gas and oil products. EMNIP Poland is one of the ten trade partners of Russia. So what?
      There will be no cheap energy resources from Russia, goods from Europe will rise in price, which plays into the hands of the United States. Who will win?

      A similar system has been developed in Russia for 5 years. She is already in trial operation. In the end, financial settlements will be carried out through intermediary countries (China), although the price for the final sources will rise, but this is not a problem.

    Once I already read about our powerful response to the damned West with my operating system, my processors, software of everything and everyone, etc. And that's where it ends. And it will end.
