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 should we put money now, or gold as the basis of state sovereignty

The default, which did not happen in the US on August 2, and the following drastic declines on global stock markets (after the raise of the US debt ceiling and the decrease of US credit rating from AAA down to АА+) have made us listen to those experts who had been talking not only about the coming new wave of crisis, but also about the consequences of the neo-liberal economic model, which became the main source of the emerging economic and political problems... The crisis has made it clear that no economy exists apart from politics and vise versa. This is valid on global scale...

Has Gladio Returned to Europe?

The recent shooting of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul by two woman who were claimed by Turkish authorities to be members of a far-left terrorist group, the Revolutionary People's Liberation Army-Front (DHKP-C), as well as a suspicious incident on a Thalys high-speed train bound for Paris from Amsterdam, indicate that the false flag operations conducted by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s Cold War-era «stay behind network» known as Gladio may be back in full operation...
