By pushing the European Union into a sanctions war against Russia, the United States pursued two main goals: to slow down the development of the Russian Federation and eliminate its main economic competitor in the world, which is the EU. Russian political scientist Marat Bashirov wrote about this on October 12 in his Telegram channel "Politjoystick / Politjoystick", referring to the latest data from the American agency Bloomberg.
The expert predicts that gas to Europeans will soon be even more expensive than it is now. At the same time, the industry will gradually move from the EU to the US, and the share of NATO funding by Europeans will increase.
What else resisted the destruction of Europe? Ahh, banks. Credit Suisse Group AG and others were supposed to go bankrupt this week, but they survived - they were given liquidity by the European authorities. But will the Americans release the prey? No. They activated another option. Today, Credit Suisse (Switzerland), and only he was declared part of the "conspiracy network". But allegedly a total of 15 banks participated in online chats in which they colluded on spreads on currency pairs, and this continued from 2007 to 2013.
- he noted.
The economist clarified that a spread is a derivative financial instrument consisting of two open positions on the stock exchange with opposite directions and/or different underlying assets and/or different maturity dates. Now in the court of Manhattan (USA) 1,3 thousand plaintiffs accuse banks of fraud on the Forex currency exchange. He recalled that this lawsuit had already been considered in 2013, but the US authorities then quickly closed the case, since American banks were among the accused, which got off with relatively small fines. However, the United States did not forget about the Europeans, and five years later the process against them was resumed.
Which banks are included? In 2013 there were: Bank of America Corp., BNP Paribas Group, Citigroup Inc., Credit Suisse AG, Deutsche Bank AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., HSBC Bank Plc, Morgan Stanley, NatWest Markets Securities Inc., Royal Bank of Scotland , Societe Generale, Standard Chartered Bank and UBS AG. As a result, it turns out that American banks and some European ones will say that they have already admitted their guilt (agreed to pay $2,3 billion to settle claims against them in 2017) and have been punished, they will be transferred to the status of witnesses, they will testify against European banks, and that's all - "walk, Vasya." The court will make a tough decision, and then Credit Suisse (Switzerland - ed.), and with it the "locomotive" Societe Generale (France - ed.) and others will go around the world with outstretched hands
- he argues.
According to Bashirov, after that, American banks will have at their disposal all the financial flows of European ones, because we are talking about the manipulation of hundreds of billions of dollars over the course of six years.
This means that the court's decision will be as follows: return the stolen goods to customers with interest, pay a fine to the US Treasury and ... they will come up with something else there. Steal the loot? The US has always done this. But here it's not like that. The states do not need them to be the first to fall with an overloaded financial system in the world, but the Europeans. And Swiss+French banks servicing Europe's big holdings became the first to all run to the US, filling the empty dollar with real assets
He summed up.
