Russia may have its own gold standard to replace the British one


According to the Association of Russian Refineries, the country needs its own gold standard instead of the British Good Delivery, since in March London stopped valuing the yellow precious metal from Russia according to its standard. Thus, in the eyes of the West, the Russian Federation has lost the status of a reliable supplier of gold.


Creating a domestic gold standard is an extremely important step towards gaining financial sovereignty

- expert Konstantin Dvinsky noted in his telegram channel.

However, the main issue remains the purpose of this measure, which may consist in turning the Russian Federation into one of the world centers for the evaluation of gold or in more convenient transportation of the precious metal to Asian countries.

According to Dvinsky, Russian exporters do not need a new gold standard, since the quality of gold from the Russian Federation is known all over the world and it is readily bought in the Asian region. Therefore, a standard is not needed to increase gold sales to other countries. But the need for it arises from a geopolitical and strategic point of view.

Russia has every opportunity to become one of the "golden" centers of the world after the formation of a system of macroregions

- the analyst is sure.

Thus, a number of regions introduce their own gold standards, which enjoy world prestige. An example is the Chinese Shanghai Good Delivery, which is an analogue of the British one. Considering that Russia is one of the centers of gold production, a similar standard may appear here as well. Thus, precious metals from Venezuela, Africa, Iran and other regions of the world can come to the Russian Federation for quality assessment and then be resold to other countries.

This is what the Russian gold standard is for. Moreover, I would say that it is necessary, as well as the introduction of Russian indicators. For the same oil or metals. But, unfortunately, so far the process does not go beyond conversations.

- concluded Konstantin Dvinsky.

    The Russian economy can become the first in the world, overtaking all the countries of the world. There is so much you can write that Russia can (theoretically). The question is why write what can ??? It is necessary to write what is already there.

    For more than 30 years, the whole country has been constipated. Everyone is waiting - when will the authorities be able to? But she still can’t, and she can’t, or she can, but not there. When will he finally be able to "go there"? Maybe she just has nothing to do this "maybe"? Or maybe there is no need?
    Can we stop fooling around and wait - until she does?

      Russia hosted and won the Winter Olympiad, Russia is the 6th economy of the world, a leader in the construction of nuclear reactors, in the cultivation of grain... What do you want? For Russia to be the first in everything and already yesterday? So 20 years is not enough for this, given that privatization brought more damage than the Second World War.

        So 20 years is not enough

        The question is HOW and WHAT this time and resources were spent.
        Of course, it is physically impossible to do EVERYTHING badly. The machines work and the earth will give birth. The point is HOW everything allotted to the country by history was spent up to the "moment of truth" and whether the goal was achieved.
        We see that this time and resources have been practically uselessly DESTROYED by the authorities. The country has not been brought to the required level, only wasted this time and squandered resources. Separate weapon systems do not make the weather.

          The country was never brought to the required level, it only lost this time in vain and squandered resources

          Disagree. The military-industrial complex was not ruined: missiles were at the proper level (hypersound was generally the first to be made), helicopter engineering was at the level, military aviation was at the level. Food security and financial security have been achieved (disconnecting banks from swift did not affect the work in any way), but you still have not enough.
          What is the required level? The first country in the world in everything? So there is no such thing and there has never been in the entire history, in some ways it will definitely yield to the opponent.

            Maybe in that parallel reality in which you reside, everything is so.
            As for our reality I will try not to be unfounded:

            There is a growing feeling that the growth of debts of defense enterprises and their turning into bankrupts is not a spontaneous process, this is not a “play of market forces”, but a process that is largely artificial and skillfully directed by someone...
            Bankruptcy of the military-industrial complex in Russia must be urgently and unconditionally stopped! No moratoriums, but a complete and final ban. Otherwise, the Russian rear will be weakened.

            The “Strategy for the Development of the Metallurgical Industry until 2030” developed by officials of the Ministry of Industry and Trade is an openly wrecking document, the purpose of which is the destruction of Russian industry. Copper and aluminum are proposed to be exported from the country - they say, they are not needed in the Russian Federation - and their production is designated as "excessive".

            Article “Officials are competing to find the best way to ruin Russia” Ivan Rybin https://svpressa.ru/economy/article/342242/?cba=1

            In 2014, the government adopted 23 import substitution programs. They were calculated until 2020. By all accounts, they all failed...
            For some positions, the situation in 2020 was even worse than in 2014.

            Let's reflect on the reason for the chronic excess of exports over imports ...
            In the post-Soviet era, everything was turned upside down. Exports came first. The oligarchs exported (and continue to export) oil, gas, ores, timber, phosphorites, potash salts, shale, coal and much more. But the purpose of such an export is not to provide the country with currency for the purchase of vital goods, but in order to send the currency to accounts in America, England or offshore jurisdictions. A mechanism for robbing Russia was created and improved.

            Doctor of Economic Sciences, Professor Valentin Katasonov Article “Unlike the USSR, Russia has become a hired worker of the West” https://svpressa.ru/economy/article/344929/

            According to all forecasts, the current year will be a record one for the outflow of capital from the Russian Federation, at least $ 500 billion, or even a trillion "green" will be taken out. As you might guess, Russian industry does not get anything at this festival of permissiveness.
            Reindustrialization was canceled without even starting.
            The encroachments of the "united West" are quite obvious, they have not changed since 1941. Then the enemies got in the teeth, but the country was ruled by patriots. And now there is a problem with this. And it needs to be addressed urgently.

            Ivan Rybin Article “Russia has forgotten how to make refrigerators and wallpapers?”
            https://svpressa.ru/economy/article/351749/?cba=1

            So, we are waging an undeclared war with the collective West, but at the same time the mechanisms of robbery by this very West of Russia continue to function, and the scale of the robbery is growing. It is clear that in this scenario, Russia has every chance of losing this war. To win it, Russia needs to radically change the entire system of managing the country's economy...
            Russia's foreign trade should not serve the interests of the collective West and a narrow group of so-called "Russian" oligarchs, but provide the country with vital consumer and industrial goods.

            Professor Valentin Katasonov article “What is the real extent of the robbery of Russia?” https://svpressa.ru/economy/article/351368/?cba=1

            That is, let's be honest: if we really pay reparations to the winners, then it is by no means the winners in the Cold War between the USSR and the USA, but the winners in our small Civil War in the fall of 1993. And they, in turn, “unfasten” those who immediately supported them (it is possible that he was standing behind them from the beginning) as usurpers and tyrants…
            In the meantime, it is important to emphasize once again: Russia as a state is not burdened with any obligations to other states regarding the implementation of this or that socio-economic policy in their favor and to the detriment of itself. If this was and, God forbid, remains burdened by specific persons and political forces, then this is a subject for understanding by society, its self-determination in terms of the possibility of trusting such persons and forces. and, just as vitally, a mandatory criminal investigation.

              More and more, there is a feeling that the increase in the debt of defense enterprises and their turning into bankrupts is not a spontaneous process, this is not a “play of market forces”, but a process that is largely artificial and skillfully directed by someone ...

              How can one rely on such concepts as sensation and being guided by someone? Are these facts? This is nothing more than an opinion, even if it is Katasonov himself. I see how these bankrupt enterprises are still working in three shifts, giving shells and UAVs to the front.

            Making promotional models of weapons "on their knees" and even equipping a regiment with them is a task for several factories with design bureaus. The cost of a beautiful picture on TV is even less.
            You create a country that would be able to produce everything you need on a massive scale in conditions of war, make sure that there are people in sufficient numbers in it.
            That's what you need 30 years for - to work all this time in a sweat tirelessly, and it will not be enough.
            To resist the West, a powerful industrial economy is needed, and not a malnourished cow that has been milked for more than 30 years, squeezing all the juice out of it, the West, and now decided to slaughter it altogether

              You see, it takes 30 years, and Russia began to prepare for confrontation in 2000. There was little time, what could be claims.

                Behind all the excerpts that I have cited are facts. and these facts directly accuse our government. These facts are actually much more. The path along which she has been leading the country all these years is leading to disaster - this is obvious to many. Since this is the US interest, the problem seems to be its dependence on them.
                The question is simple: what do we need to do so that the country and we avoid destruction?

                  You don't have to walk long to bring the country to a catastrophe, you stepped off a cliff, and it's all in the bag. And here we suffer for twenty-two years, but we still cannot come to a catastrophe. That's when we really went to disaster - this is when Yeltsin was embraced and declared the most democratic and beloved German of the year. And now, judging by the dissatisfaction of the West, we are somehow not acting according to their patterns.

                    No, I will explain anyway, because it is important for everyone to understand our situation:
                    Yes, in the 90s we were completely in the hands of the United States - it would seem. However, they still needed to be able to TAKE all this. A huge country with a powerful army and people who hated any enemy. Nuclear weapons inside the system that protects them. Head-on actions could cost them dearly.
                    It was probably then that the second, more profitable option arose - to combine the “Defeat of Russia” stage with the “Enslavement of Europe” stage, that is, to push Russia against Europe in a war and collect trophies from both sides.
                    For this war, they, using their puppets and the "fifth column", made a "lighter" from Ukraine and Russia.
                    Unlike the defeat of Russia back in the 90s, this option allows them to:
                    - do everything without shedding your own blood, with the wrong hands
                    - to do it more gently, by bleeding, without the emergence of a situation that directly obliges the leadership of Russia, which they control, to use its strategic weapons
                    - at the same time, remove the European factor from geopolitical competition, and from China's possible partners in its game
                    - turn Europe into your slave, thereby compensating for your own lost industry
                    there are other bonuses as well.
                    They not only destroy Russia, but also conquer Europe. They will only have China
                    That's why they spared us then, and are messing with us now. The plan took time, and they went for it.
                    Now their task is to draw us into a war with Europe in Ukraine.
                    As for the discontent of the West - what did you want?
                    Is it possible to start a war without it?

                      I do not know what it means to "be able to take" in your understanding. In the 90s, Russia did everything that the West demanded of it. She ruined the aviation industry, destroyed the automotive industry, machine tool building, handed over her scouts ... The damage caused exceeded the damage from the Second World War. What a huge army in the 90s? Russia could not defeat Chechnya, there were no combat-ready troops.
                      And the problems for the West with Russia began in the 2000s, when the Russians paid off their debts, enterprises began to return to state ownership, and some oligarchs (remember the seven-banking?) either left or sat down. That's when Ukraine was needed for Plan B. Moreover, it seems to me that this plan did not come from a good life. They now have problems with a wagon and a small cart.
                      If you don't see a difference in the state of Russia in the 90s and today, I can't help it.

      When I heard Siluanov at the St. Petersburg forum, they say the West turned its back on us and banned everything for us, well, everything that we need, we will buy in the east, after these words I realized that nothing good should be expected while all this power is at the helm. He said in simple words that we were dependent on the west, now we will be on the east and didn’t say anything that we will do everything ourselves. We have been collecting Renault for many years now we will assemble the Chinese for 20 years with the Moskvich nameplate. in fact, they didn’t end. It’s just that everything became more beautiful, the fiction became more colorful and that’s it.

        So, yes, not quite. CBO has become a trigger for the loading of the defense industry. A lot of new production facilities began to open, replacing imports. For example, in November there are only 13 large ones. Yes, it’s hard to drive a car, but we’ll survive that too. For now, we'll change less often. It would be nice, of course, to update the team in order to speed up development. Here you are also right, but maybe life will force it. But apparently when we are completely squeezed, hardly earlier.

          I somehow watched a program, I don’t remember on TV or on YouTube, there is a dairy plant in which our cheeses were made, such as import substitution is in full swing. Our milk, although powdered milk can be supplied from the same Argentina, they simply didn’t voice it in the program, but the main thing is not this, the main thing is that all the equipment was 100% imported, on which these imported cheeses were made. Well, how did we replace imports if we cut off the supply of equipment, spare parts and the production of these cheeses will stop. I think this happens a lot where and if somewhere there is a breakthrough, then you need to look and see if there is any dependence on machine tools, equipment and other components from the West, but they are 100% and somewhere completely dependent on them.

    Gold suppliers should create their own standard, and the largest suppliers are China, South Africa and other British possessions. The Russian Federation can create its own standard, but who recognizes it in conditions of total war and blockade?
    I believe that the goal is not to create a standard, but to accumulate in order to stabilize and protect our financial system and pay for strategically important goods in the face of growing crisis trends in the world - inflation, rising public debts, prices, sanctions, theft of other people's gold reserves.
    The unintelligible policy of the main bank, which either buys gold or sells it, greatly affects the domestic production of gold, and who in such a situation will contact the Russian Federation in Venezuela, Africa, Iran and other regions of the world, especially in the context of the war between the collective West and affiliated with him, state formations around the world against the Russian Federation and the threat of falling themselves under the action of secondary sanctions in the absence of any significant support from the so-called. “friendly, i.e. non-hostile” state formations and, first of all, the PRC.
