Freezing of Russian reserves by the West may play into the hands of Moscow


According to the Atlantic Council analytical center (recognized as an undesirable organization in Russia) under NATO, only 300-80 billion of the Russian gold and foreign exchange reserves frozen by the West were found. The rest of the funds are in unknown accounts.


At the same time, Russian financial authorities also cannot return part of the reserves, since in this case transactions in foreign currency will be opened and the Central Bank of the Russian Federation will not be able to access them.

Meanwhile, the loss of part of the Russian gold reserves may, to some extent, play into the hands of the Russian Federation. The point is inflation, which also applies to world currencies. So, as of January 1, 2022, the Russian Central Bank had 181,27 billion euros. As a result of inflationary processes, this reserve depreciated by 17,13 billion rubles.

There were 66,8 billion dollars at the disposal of the Central Bank, today they have actually decreased by 4,12 billion British pounds sterling was 28,059 billion, inflation "ate" 2,74 billion of this amount. Japanese yen was 4,168 trillion, but due to depreciation, their stock decreased by 139,2 billion.

Thus, the Russian gold and foreign exchange reserves blocked by the West are slowly burning out due to inflation. However, due to previous policy Central Bank, these funds did not work for the Russian the economy. Without the current lockdown, systemic liberals would probably continue to withdraw money from the Russian Federation and place it in the West. At the moment, due to the current situation, the funds are located within the country and work for its benefit.

As for the frozen Russian gold reserves, they are apparently lost to Moscow forever. But every month their amount is reduced due to inflation, and the West has less time and less opportunity to use them.

    Author. Don't twist the meaning.
    It turns out that if you are robbed, then it only plays into your hands.
    And the bombing of Moscow will also play into the hands of Moscow?

      It's not exactly theft. Russia was built into the Western financial system. moreover, on enslaving terms. We could only print money by borrowing liquidity from the West. This is how it looks like. There is a corporate bank. He has a daughter who brought gold every month. The daughter no longer works for the central office. Now there was a reorganization of the corporation. The author only says that we are no longer fulfilling our obligations. And the frozen fiat money was not originally ours. We redeemed our country. The bombing of Moscow, I just don’t understand what does it have to do with it. Here you have a clear perversion of meaning.

    Back in 2014, European countries began to withdraw their gold from American banks.
    Russian systemic liberals played along with speculators tied to the West for 30 years. Therefore, the State Bank has not yet been established in the country. And Russian banks are more like "laundries".
    Take-away country: Moishe is in London, and Ivan is in Russia and under sanctions, so that he would hand over everything into a common ruble boiler, which, again, will be torn apart by scammers at the first opportunity, a change of power, "force majeure circumstances", etc.

    This is not our money. When, say, Rosneft takes $10 million from the West, it needs not dollars, but rubles. After all, it is only rubles that it can operate within the country. Thus, having received a loan, she goes to the Central Bank and exchanges currency for 600 million rubles. And the Central Bank has on its account - the same 10 million greenery is formed. But do they actually belong to him? Can he spend it as he pleases? No - because in a year Rosneft will have to repay the debt, and it will bring 600 million rubles back, exchanging it again for foreign currency. And since this is so, this currency is deposited on correspondent accounts in a Western bank, where the loan was issued. For why drive back and forth to no avail? Simplified - yes.

    Thus, having arrested those 10 million, the West simply returned the loan ahead of schedule, saving Rosneft from having to exchange rubles for foreign currency. It's his money, not ours. And not even Rosneft. And calls to let them go to Tsegabonia are equal to payments from one's own pocket. That's why no one does it.

    To a real egg - judging by the angry cries, they did not reach. They would have reached - they stole it the next day.

      (Pavel) Don't preach nonsense, if you yourself don't understand what you said, then you should go to the doctor, if you understand, then you should go to the FSB of the Russian Federation. To understand, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation receives funds in dollars and other euros from foreign banks for the sold hydrocarbons and other Russian companies and they are transferred and they become the OWNERSHIP of the Russian Federation in the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, as the final accumulator .. Taking them away means theft of property and so on. What are you talking about, Pasha, about a salary from the CIA?

    I understand propaganda is needed, but damn it, don’t write like that

    Frozen money in the hands of Moscow

    And the remaining money will also not work for the economy, since someone has to invest, build, create. These people are Thieves and they can only steal.

    Gold reserves consist of physical and paper gold, foreign currency, IMF special drawing rights, debt securities of non-residents, loans and other assets that are easy to find, they are documented, checked and periodically reconciled. Offshore investments are more problematic. The Russian Federation can respond to the theft of gold reserves, restriction of foreign exchange transactions and disconnection from Swift with the confiscation of foreign assets, the amount of which, according to the Central Bank, amounted to 1 billion dollars on January 1.166,6, which they probably won’t like, but the Russian Federation has nothing to lose, sanctions are strangling and it is necessary to break out from Western fetters in order to preserve the independence and integrity of the state, and for this a party and a dictatorship of the proletariat are needed.

    The main thing is that the Russians should bend over and not run happily to shake hands after the war, but set a condition - a full return of the stolen money and payment of a penalty for illegal use in full, and only after this is talk about oil, gas, grain, metals, etc. .. Otherwise, it's called - doused with slop, and we wiped ourselves off.

    And what, inflation is a one-sided process: interest on Russian gold reserves does not grow?

    Russia acted with this "freeze" surprisingly quietly, without much advertising, simply and effectively ..)
    300 billion dollars is 18 trillion rubles.
    Russia, for foreign trade operations, simply began to print them (half has already been printed).
    This money is not in circulation within the country, and an indicator of this is a decrease in inflation.
    Well done!

      Where did you see the decline in inflation? Glaukoprost bought a month ago for 600 rubles, today - 734 rubles.
