Large-scale export of gold from Russia attracted the attention of the authorities


Deputies of the Russian State Duma were alarmed by the volume of gold exports, which in the first nine months of this year almost equaled the volume of precious metal production. Thus, the Financial Market Committee plans to send a request to the government.


According to Nikolai Kolomeitsev, a deputy from the Communist Party faction, the Russian Federation exports more gold than it produces, while the United States and China have been accumulating gold and foreign exchange reserves over the past 11 years. At the same time, the Russian Central Bank stopped buying gold.

According to the Federal Customs Service of Russia, from January to October this year, the volume of gold sales abroad amounted to about 240,5 tons. At the same time, 256,54 tons of precious metal were received in the first eight months of the year. Thus, there is a large-scale export of gold from Russia, which naturally attracted the attention of the authorities.

Basically, Russian gold is supplied to London - the world center for the sale of precious metals. In October, 30,3 tons of gold were sent to the British capital from the Russian Federation. In addition, the "yellow metal" was shipped to Kazakhstan, Belarus, Germany, Switzerland and Armenia.

At the same time, revenues from the sale of gold amounted to about $ 18,5 billion. The resulting currency was used to "patch holes" in the Russian budget, which suffered from the fall in oil prices.

    In 2021, rising prices for oil and gas are giving a surplus ... Why are you writing this nonsense? Gold of the Russian Federation went through GB, Switzerland to the USA ...
    Now we look here (NWF growth):


    What holes? They are taking out their stash ... Thank the Central Bank for giving the right to private traders to sell gold to Russia.

    The saddest thing is that there is Putin's order that the money received for the sale of gold may not be returned to Russia, but deposited in British banks.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law softening foreign exchange controls for a number of Russian exporters, including companies involved in the export of gold, metals and grain.
    According to the document approved by the State Duma in May and published on Monday on the portal of legal information, from July 1, exporters are exempt from the requirement to obligatorily credit the proceeds to Russian accountsif they sell goods that, in accordance with the unified commodity nomenclature of the Eurasian Economic Union, are classified as non-resource and non-energy.
    This list includes including gold of all types (group 7108) - from monetary and ingots to powder, rods and raw forms.

    So it remains to be seen whether the sale helps "patch holes in the budget" ...

      Didn't you think that these funds "settled in British banks" have some special purpose outside of Russia? For example, financial support for any parties, movements ..

          Even if you were later asked to work off this money, say, with arms in hand, or at least the leader of a "London bulk" of some 5th column in England, or some other Western country? Minus is easy to put.)

            Promise not to marry.

            - Vanya, you promised to marry me ...
            - You never know what I promised on you!

            And then I said - I would have signed up as a member ...
            By the way, I didn't put minuses. I put them myself :-)

              Regarding the special purpose of the funds, I just expressed my assumption. It's just that after the grandiose revival of the Russian army (on guesses - with the money of "Putin's oligarchs"), I do not think that Putin would have made such a "thoughtless order" (for the sale of gold) without some further plan.
              Look at recent foreign policy. The parties have already switched to the language of threats and ultimatums. Do you think they will be able to keep the situation in a peaceful way? And if not?
              So all parties are trying to get hold of their own players in other teams in advance.

                Such amounts are not intended to fund any groups. But we do not know whether this money returned to the country or not. The fact is that the order (additions to the Federal Law) were adopted. Russia began to sell gold starting in 2020 (in large quantities). Before that, gold was also sold, but not in such volumes. And until 2021, the money had to be credited to the accounts of the Central Bank. And now there is no such rule anymore.
                The variant with "own players in other people's teams" does not work at all. This reminds of naive dreams that the proletariat in the capitalist countries will not fight the state of "workers and peasants" and will hold meetings and strikes. The reality is that patriotism is always stronger than money. How did you write

                Even if you were later asked to work off this money, say, with a weapon in your hands

                Unfortunately, there is less and less faith in "Putin's cunning plan." Of course it will not fall under the West. But so far I see only a desire to enter this very West. Hence the "partners" and Lavrovskoye "got". We must change course. And the top does not want to change it. But I believe that life will force you to change course anyway. In the meantime, capital is being exported from the country.
                Think about it - to get gold, sell it to the West and leave the money there. This is some kind of super cunning plan. By themselves, these additions to the law are not smart decisions. There is also a question for the deputies who supported this law. And now they are initiating a request.

                Deputies of the Russian State Duma were alarmed by the volume of gold exports, which in the first nine months of this year almost equaled the volume of precious metal production. Thus, the Financial Market Committee plans to send a request to the government.

                The same people. Before scribbling requests, let them look in the mirror. The law was passed not by the Government, but by the State Duma deputies. Those same "members".

    Memo to conspiracy theorists:
    If we take into account the probably concluded Treaty of the United States with aliens, then it is quite possible that the United States is a tax collector on the planet for the delivery of gold (tribute) from planet Earth to aliens. Hence their advanced technology compared to other peoples on the planet. Now China has begun to challenge the right of the United States' Chief Gold Collector.

    Complete nonsense!. What authorities? Those who were cheated? Such things cannot be done without the decision of the Kremlin: at least export, at least a subsequent carve-up.
