The West, not knowing it, played into the hands of Russia

The West, which has been withdrawing billions of dollars from Russia since 90, in just one month has realized what the Russian government has been trying to accomplish over the past three years. It's about the so-called de-offshore. Of course, the total amount of returned funds is still small, but the fact that it turned out to be many times more than last year, gives confidence.

These events are taking place against the backdrop of the threat of the second package of US sanctions, which provides for the introduction of personal restrictions on a number of businessmen and politicians in Russia.

Fearing for the further fate of their capital, the "fat cats" rushed to transfer funds to Russian accounts. Moreover, a part of the money is invested in bonds of the federal loan of the Russian Federation, which gives our government additional “space for maneuver.”

The plot begins with 23 minutes.

        But, he profounds them in the "framework of a balanced budget"., And without suspecting it what I sometimes agree that the “economic block” of the government does nothing, because I imagine what it can do fool

    Let's hope that Western sanctions work ... Should they squeeze at least a few, the rest will drag their wallets home much more actively.

      In addition to Russia, at least a dozen more options people have where to hide money. The planet is large, and not everyone on it licks the Americans between the rolls.

    we argue that in the reports of the Federal State Statistics Service for this quarter, the outflow of capital will not go anywhere?

      I put a plus for you, but I want to explain to you (because you don’t understand something due to age and lack of education) that not only the looted goods are taken abroad, but also the interest on loans and loans in Western banks are repaid. All that’s on top is the export of the loot here, so the export of capital, in principle, will always be.

      .And the money "the boyars" still plundered.

      All this happened more than once, the cyclical nature of history, no one canceled, we go in circles, we dance on a rake.
      According to Plato, degenerate species of states are:

      · Timocracy (power of ambitious people),

      Oligarchy (power of the rich),

      · Democracy (power of the crowd),

      Tyranny (power of the offender).

      What do you think, through what types of state have we already gone through, and which type is most suitable for the current system?)

    Only now, something is not cold, not hot from this news. Many were glad that from this money they would pass to someone. Calm down, nothing will change, even if they transfer a couple of hundred yards of green, it will not affect us in any way.

    As usual, a reporter suck from the finger. No one is entering anything anywhere. All within the framework of statistical error. All "moneybags" withdraw their capital from empty pieces of paper. Only the most frightened and stupid ones can put their money in banks or in debt securities. More and more less adequate, they actively buy cryptocurrency portfolios. This is currently the only safe way for offshore money to save it. All other options are extremely unsafe, Russian godfathers will wring out.
