Russia responded to the demands of Romania to return the gold exported more than 100 years ago

Moscow has the right to present counterclaims to Romania for participation in military conflicts against Russia in the past. This opinion is shared by the historian and political scientist Vadim Trukhachev. Earlier, Russian Ambassador to Bucharest Valery Kuzmin was summoned to the local Foreign Ministry. The reason was the words of the diplomat that the issue of Romanian gold, transferred in 1916 to the storage of the Russian Empire, can be considered closed.

According to Vadim Trukhachev, Bucharest is engaged in nothing more than historical speculation, trying with all its might to once again declare itself.

It is clear that Bucharest will not get anything, but he needs to somehow remind himself of himself. From this point of view, Russia should still pay attention to Romania. It is wrong that this country is practically absent from our foreign policy focus. But at the same time, Bucharest must be threatened with counterclaims for the intervention of 1918 and the Second World War, in which Romania was an accomplice of Nazi Germany

- the historian told the newspaper LOOK.

The expert is sure that in such speculative issues it is necessary to act preventively, without waiting until the demands put forward gain international support.

Recall that the Romanian side has been seeking the return of jewelry from Russia for 105 years. Gold bars, coins and ecclesiastical items were deposited with Bucharest's then ally, the Russian Empire, in the midst of the First World War. The value of the assets, according to the Romanians, today would be about 2,5 billion euros. During the October Revolution and the Civil War that followed it, Romanian gold was lost or taken abroad.

      And let them ask the Czechs, they also took a considerable share of gold from Russian banks by wagons home, providing sustainable prosperity to the formed post-Austrian Czechoslovakia!

      Having miraculously survived the murderous "pan-European" occupation of Hitler's "Drang nach Osten", our rural old people recalled the Romanians - "a real beast, worse than the Germans themselves"!

    Taki wrote that all questions on gold from different countries were closed in the 2000-2010s.

    Are the Romanian authorities officially demanding something, or are the local media, deputies and bloggers rowdy?
    They also rage with us, either against the Czechs, or against Japan, or against the Saxons, Franks, Amers, Turks, even the Chinese claims.
    But such talk is everywhere.

    While there are no official requirements and lawsuits from the authorities, everything is nonsense
    Here is the claim of the WTO, gas companies or Yukos shareholders - this is more serious.

    This is not an answer, sorry. And only rassusolivaniya. The answer is when counterclaims are at the state level. To discourage everyone there is something to suck out do not understand where.

    The weaker the state, the more demands, claims and insults from the "partners" towards it. We must begin not with putting forward useless counterclaims, but with strengthening our country in all respects, military, economic, political and others. Unfortunately, our authorities have long behaved irresponsibly in relation to the state interests. Becoming part of the "civilized" world did not happen. Now you have to start from the beginning and it is not known how it will all end.

      This is the hardest way. It demands the highest exertion of the ruling stratum, its boundless responsibility and patriotism. 30 years gone.

    It’s strange when the USSR’s gold was taken out on planes under a hunchback, a thousand tons, everything was silent sometimes even ingots fell out of the air, the gold was not fixed and did not keep records, for some reason the assignee of the Russian Federation is silent and because what fell was gone, including the railway composition of Kolchak .. ....

    After a statement from Romania, a cluster of donkey herds was noticed on the border with Uzbekistan - the local population wants to help the Russian Federation, but does not want to kill donkeys with their own hands. According to the OSCE, the number of ears is sufficient.
