The «Black Knights» are the Partisan Fighters in an Economic War

Occasionally while discussing issues related to the West’s economic sanctions against various countries, the subject of the «black knights» crops up. The term «black knight» is given to the small trading partners of a country that is affected by sanctions. They act as intermediaries, facilitating trade and economic relations between that country and the rest of the world... There was a time when «black knights» were not taken seriously... But events of recent years have shown that the thousands of «black knights» now in operation have formed a critical mass, so their potential capability is already comparable to that of the large corporations. And the attempts by those who have introduced the sanctions to monitor the «black knights» are close to zero percent effective.

A Soros «Trojan Horse» inside the New Greek Government?

...Although new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras... and the vast majority of his new Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) government have good left-wing and pro-labor credentials, the same cannot be necessarily said of the man Tsipras chose to be Greece’s new finance minister. Yanis Varoufakis is a citizen of Australia who was educated in Britain and worked as a professor at the University of Texas... Varoufakis’s curriculum vitae, reeks of George Soros-intertwined globalist links...

Mariupol: Who Pulled the Trigger?

...Americans and their puppets in Kiev still cherish the plans to involve Russia in the war and make it bring its military to the Ukraine’s territory. Then they could openly accuse Russia of being an aggressor, mobilize the world community and make the conflict escalate much further. Russia does not want to play by these rules. That’s why Ukrainian military shelled Mariupol – Ukraine has to do the job by itself.

Merkel as Soft Cop in False Flag Offensive on Russia

At the World Economic Forum last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel let the cat out of the bag with her sly offer, or rather bribe, to Russia. The German leader told delegates in Davos that European Union sanctions on Russia would be lifted in exchange for a «peace deal» in Ukraine. She promised a «free trade pact from Lisbon to Vladivostok»... Merkel, who is known for her ardent «transatlantic» partnership with America, is thus showing herself to be dutifully doing Washington’s bidding over the Ukraine crisis and the bigger objective of subordinating Russia to Western hegemony, or as the New York Times euphemistically calls it «better relations with the West»...

Rating Weapon of Economic War

At the beginning of 2015 economic ratings given to Russia’s economy appeared in the West to cover the previous year, offer the forecasts for the current year and even for the period of 2016-2017... On January 13 Fitch rating agency downgraded the ratings of 13 Russian companies, including Gasprom, Lukoil and Russian Railroad Company. At the same time it was reported that Standard & Poor’s, another world rating agency, could soon downgrade the Russia’s sovereign rating to “junk” status. Moody’s, one more agency of the Big Three group, is also expected to join in the virtual game of Russia’s downgrading... The ratings cannot be taken at their face value because they have nothing to do at all with the real state of Russian economy. The «Big Three» ratings are a weapon of economic war unleashed against Russia in March 2014. It’s an instrument of psychological pressure. They are planned as self-fulfilling forecasts... My assessments of the world rating agencies’ products are easy to understand. I believe they are nothing else but the results of manipulations, cheatings, falsifications, racket, the instruments of sanctions, the activities of world cartel, conspiracies and subversive activities...

Where Germany Goes to

...In Davos Merkel accused Russia of violating «the values that created a peaceful order in Europe after World War II, namely the acceptance of borders and respect of territorial integrity». Merkel turned a blind eye to the fact that Germany was first (!) to rush and recognize the change of borders in former Yugoslavia that sparked an internal conflict in the Balkans to last for many years. She did not remember Germany mocking the principle of the recognition of borders and the protection of territorial integrity as Serbia was dismembered as a result of Kosovo secession. The day Albania separatists proclaimed their independence Kosovars wrote on the walls of their houses in Pristina «Thank you, Germany!»...

On the Possible Losses for Banks Should the West’s Economic War against Russia Continue

...Despite the difficulty of a comparison, one can nevertheless argue with some confidence that the foreign assets of Russian banks in the narrow sense of the term (international claims) are significantly less than the total claims of foreign banks on Russian banks and companies. At the same time, however, the foreign assets of Russian banks are located almost exclusively in those countries involved in economic sanctions against Russia. Should the West impose any kind of sanctions on the foreign assets of Russian banks, then this could have a painful impact on the Russian banking system. In this regard, the task of withdrawing Russia’s banking assets from Western countries and moving them to other jurisdictions is crucial, first and foremost to countries in the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union, and then to BRICS countries.

Davos – 2015

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. The Forum is best known for its annual winter meeting in Davos, a mountain resort in Graubünden located in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland... The Forum appears to be democratic from outside but its activities are more and more questioned every year. More often it comes under harsh criticism. Experts remember that the WEF generated the ideas of economic globalization to meet the interests of transnational corporations. The critical remarks are made on different aspects of the Forum’s activities... Davos-2015 will probably be the most difficult WEF meeting for Russia. It can be the last one. The romance that has lasted between Russia and the West for more than twenty years is over.

War and the Dollar

...World War III will be fundamentally different than anything the world has ever seen. It will begin without an official proclamation. And although we remain unaware until the end, this war has most likely already begun. It will include the use of mercenaries (private military contractors), reliance on support from a fifth column within certain countries, the active use of «Maidan» technology, the involvement of the Washington-controlled media, the proclamation of economic sanctions, etc. This undeclared war is being waged under the guise of a war against terrorism, «radical Islam», «Russian aggression», violations of human rights, etc. etc. Over the course of this undeclared world war, the money masters (the Fed’s shareholders) will resolve all the problems the dollar has amassed... In any event, there is no reason to expect global instability to abate. This instability is a sign of the dollar’s weakness and of the death throes of those who own the Federal Reserve’s banknote printing press. But like a wounded animal they will fight to the end.

EU Expansion Ideology: Gunnar Wiegand, Alain Le Roy and Federica Mogherini

...Today the time is propitious to remember the hackneyed question asked for the first time by Henry Kissinger “Who do I call if I want to call Europe?» Indeed, who should one call to make clear the Brussels’s goals as the EU whips up its anti-Russia rhetoric? Is it Federica Mogherini who still does not know well enough her way around as she took over the present EU position recently and who makes melodramatic statements?.. Or should one call the newly appointed Alain Le Roy who acts as a special advisor to Federica Mogherini till he takes office as the new Secretary General of the EEAS on March 1? Or is it Gunnar Wiegand who keeps on repeating that Russia illegally annexed Crimea and Sebastopol and destabilized the situation in the eastern Ukraine? No fruitful dialogue between Russia and the EU is possible until Europe sees the things the same way as the above mentioned officials do...
