Default in Russia: Reflections on the Events of 1998

94
“Already the current generation of Soviet citizens will live under communism” - a well-known thesis of the Soviet era. Instead, Soviet citizens were not Soviet, and instead of communism, we all had to “plunge” into the 90 with their economic whirlpool, the emergence of borders, rampant crime, privatization and default.


Default in Russia: Reflections on the Events of 1998


Today, historians are trying to figure out what happened to the country in August 1998, and how those Western partners of Russia, primarily the United States, influenced those events.

On the air of the YouTube channel "Day TV" - Andrey Fursov. He cites facts from 90's that tell a lot about the ups and downs of more than 20 years ago.

Andrei Fursov presents materials that state that then-President Boris Yeltsin could have been warned initially that the country would plunge into default. On this basis, the expert suggests concluding that Sergey Kiriyenko was initially appointed to the post of head of the Russian government as a “vice chairman”.

Fragments of communication between Boris Yeltsin and Bill Clinton are given. For example, the US president told Yeltsin in 1998 that the Russian economy would flourish in 20 years (and the deadline had already passed) and that the Russians would pay tribute to Yeltsin. Fursov quotes Yeltsin’s response to Clinton:

Bill, you and I are not just friends, we have joint leadership.

Clinton must have grinned caustically then, hearing such words from a man who in Washington was not openly taken seriously, continuing to act in the direction of the collapse of Russia.

      It could only be said ... a brain killed by alcohol .. The reasons for the 90s are understandable, it would be better to make a broadcast where they would give an answer to the question:
      - Why not one bastard did not suffer punishment for all that chaos and why many of them are still in power?
      I'm already silent about the monuments .. which drunk in Yekaterinburg built ..

                  Naturally, because socialism is the fairest form of state structure, which will suit the vast majority of the population .. Socialism was in Russia and everyone had the opportunity to verify the superiority of this model and compare it with others that have ever been created .. Absolutely in all respects socialism wins.
                  What surnames do you need? In general, I am for socialism, and not for last names. I do not like Zyuganov, but if there is no alternative, I will vote for him. I like Grudinin, Platoshkin. Good Platoshkin for the presidency, and Grudinin for the premiere, an excellent team.

                    here are the goals and objectives of the CPD

                    The Russian Socialist Party “grew up” from the previous national-patriotic movements and organizations of Russia, which considered the realization of the interests and successes of the individual inextricably linked with the strengthening and prosperity of their country.

                    The state is people and the more worthy the citizens of their country, the stronger the state. RPS brings people together to change their lives for the better. You can not shift the responsibility for the ongoing processes exclusively to the state, if you yourself are part of the state.

                    they are not even able to formulate the tasks of the party, and you propose voting for them

                      This babble about accounts in the West .. it's just ridiculous .. Who doesn’t have them, who earns decent money a little, and even is in opposition to the authorities .. And who exactly did you vote for? He escaped from the debate, again it is ridiculous .. Putin was even afraid to think about them .. but Grudinin did not run away, and did not take part in the show, where he was supposed to act as a clown .. why did he need this before the election? He came to the debate about serious things to talk about, and he was dug up with what two dummy women ...
                      In general, whoever wants to see he sees .. and the rest find excuses and vote for Putin .. there is no alternative, to the fabulous suitcase wassat

                        GDP when they ask questions about cats and dogs .. here it’s experienced or when the USA is omitted, it’s also eloquent, but as for the internal affairs .. it mumbles and leaves the questions .. So there’s just a fabulous empty-handed .. and there are a lot of evidence, how many people he cheated on the air .. Any savvy opponent would have made the GDP mumble, and for this reason he avoided debate ..
                        And in general, how could one vote for a candidate who did not even bother to set out an election program?

                        My dear, I just don't see the point in answering you. You are the "gentleman west of the Suez." Your morale is flexible like a rubber hose. Oh, oh. How many years have passed ... How many years have passed since the oath nuuu ... Let's say the commander of the Central Military District? At least twice as much. AND? Is he a free bird free from the oath? How many years have passed since the Beijing Treaty? And ... Vladik is now no man's city? By ranting about the fact that in a dozen years a word, a promise is losing its power, you are on a very slippery slope. The condition for freeing Mr. Putin from the promise is extremely simple. While the president. There were no reservations in style - the next year, the next five-year plan was not contained. And options 3. Either the word holds and the signature is not put, or Mr. Putin leaves without accepting the increase in age, or a vile liar voiced the promise.

          And I blame the deputy Alexei Kazannik for everything, who gave his mandate to Yeltsin. If Yeltsin was not a deputy, it is not known how his fate would have developed. And Kazannik’s fate was not bad - his position as Prosecutor General speaks about this.

        why so? there is such a transfer. Look in YouTube the shooting of the House of Soviets, the supreme authority at that time. To imagine what was going on there look at materials on the House of Trade Unions in Odessa. Power is taken through spilled blood, and it is not taken to bear the punishment for it. She will need to be shed more ... This is not a patient people, it is fear, and an understanding of one’s own insignificance.

        I’m afraid you yourself won’t like it because the main culprit of all that horror is one party from the USSR that stupidly abandoned a huge state. which in the person of its first persons lost on all fronts. but some people really want to run a rake once again as I look. Everyone condemns the drunk and he came from which excuse system or Gorbachev? where did Chubais and other trash come from? you want to judge a particular person, but you must admit the defeat of the whole system from inside to out and what it mutated into later.

        This gang has been confused by EBN, and I still believe that rewriting registers does not mean legal transfer of property.
        All that could be rewritten was done before 1996. After that, the companies privatized by labor collectives were rewritten in private hands, forcing them to sell shares for a penny. Chubais thus transferred power plants and EEC enterprises to private ownership. It is after such a redistribution that electricity is sold to us through energy retail companies, which are actually dealerships.
        I don't wanna tuss this shit. I remember very well the chairman of the union, which ran and persuaded workers to sell shares, otherwise (like) you can be left without anything ...
        For that matter, the socialist property began to attach their feet to the HMS ...

      According to Kudrin, the crisis was predetermined by a small amount of gold and foreign exchange reserves and a falling oil price - in May 1998, it fell to $ 8 per barrel at an average annual price of $ 12. Foreign exchange liabilities of the state exceeded the amount of currency that it had. Kudrin noted that the default occurred when the volume of currency withdrawal exceeded the size of foreign exchange reserves. When the reserves were not enough, the devaluation of the ruble began: from 6 rubles. for $ 1 it fell to 18, 20, etc. At the same time, banks began to withdraw currency at any rate that was possible at that time in order to prevent even greater losses. This led to a landslide drop in the ruble exchange rate. According to Kudrin, the outflow of capital in 1998 amounted to $ 10-11 billion (in certain periods it reached $ 20 billion) with a volume of gold and foreign exchange reserves of $ 12 billion.
      Kudrin admitted that the IMF and the Russian government were guilty of allowing such a situation.

      "The next question is logical: why have we become a permanent debtor? I will answer: we began to walk around the world with an outstretched hand not in recent years, but at least twenty years ago, when we got on the oil needle. That is, when raw materials export became the main , if not the only item of state income. There is an illusion that the USSR, a country with a militarized economy, earned on the sale of weapons and their technologies. The first thing I did, sitting in the prime minister's office, I immediately began to check: how much did we earn on this And how much - can we now? It turned out that the USSR supplied weapons for 15-16, 18 billion a year, and at best they received 600-900 million in real money. "

          due to the default, imports have become more expensive. Do you know Africa? do you know about hunger in Africa? how did it turn out? - there, under the guise of humanitarian aid, cheap American legs were put in and ruined farmers. The IMF scenario - cheap legs, privatization of a well (well), cheap credit - this is the beginning of the end of any economy. Do you know the word crisis? in Greek it is JUDGMENT. This is a payback for chicken legs with free loans. American money, by its nature, is constantly depreciating. Local currencies, due to the greed of local bankers, always strive to strengthen in order to have more dollars, as a result, having collected "cheap" loans, they pay off for their cheapness with inflation hi

          But there was no country. There was no army, no police.

          nor the Supreme Council ..... the main way the state body. In the memoirs of Cygnus there was an idea that the tanks would turn the barrels in the other direction and the story would go differently. That would be for the country

      An example of the Sverdlovsk region is similar to today's Moscow. As a resident of the region, I look at this not with envy, but with disgust:

    Bill, you and I are not just friends, we have joint leadership.
    Traitor. Yeltsin personally betrayed us. On August 19 of 1991, the State Committee for Emergency Situations was proclaimed, this was the last day of the Soviet Union for us, the next day we woke up in another state.

    About "zits-chairman" - not news at all. They "opened" their eyes to everyone ..
    Well, about our Bill, Clinton just fine in one article says: our man! A statue of him should be erected - with the wording: "for an invaluable contribution to the development of the world atomic energy (well, a little Russian)!"

    Naturally, because, socialism

    socialism and socialist politicians are not the same thing
    here are the goals and objectives of the CPD

    The Russian Socialist Party “grew up” from the previous national-patriotic movements and organizations of Russia, which considered the realization of the interests and successes of the individual inextricably linked with the strengthening and prosperity of their country.

    The state is people and the more worthy the citizens of their country, the stronger the state. RPS brings people together to change their lives for the better. You can not shift the responsibility for the ongoing processes exclusively to the state, if you yourself are part of the state.

    they are not even able to formulate the tasks of the party, and you propose voting for them
    Quote: Svarog
    Socialism was in Russia and everyone had the opportunity to verify the superiority of this model and compare it with others that have ever been created .. Absolutely in all respects, socialism wins.

    and who argues, just forgive today's communist socialists do not pull on those who can lead Russia
    Quote: Svarog
    I like Grudinin, Platoshkin.

    about sternum, this is ridiculous especially in terms of your attitude to socialism, Platoshkin ... well, somewhere I agree
    Quote: Svarog
    and Grudinin at the premiere, a great team.

    what would he rent not only collective farm land laughing
    and after he escaped from the debate and I'm sorry I got messed up with accounts in the west, I don’t hold him for a normal politician

    You criticize - offer.

    I saw the face of EBN ... so I wanted to spit! (I restrained myself ... I'll wipe the screen afterwards ...) I remember that episode in 1998, when EBN said that "there will be no devaluation" ... and after a day and a half the devaluation took place ... Decent politicians in such cases themselves resign, but when was EBN decent? And how many more crimes are listed for this drunk? 1.Announced the "death" of the USSR, illegal! This is a crime!; 2. He shot the Council of People's Deputies - a crime!; 3. Before the 1996 elections, EBN's rating was from 2 to 5%, and suddenly ... he won the elections! belay .It is known that EBN was going to arrange an armed putsch, if it was not possible to hide the rigging of the elections! A crime! And now "storyteller No. 1" still honors him!

    Well, now diarrhea from all the cracks. Default in 1998 Putin is to blame for the system is rotten. We vote for Grudin and others. Someone in the woods, some by firewood They want socialism, but where are those socialists? Socialism and the path of the USSR died with the death of Stalin, under Khrushchev, by inertia, the USSR was still in motion, under Brezhnev it stopped, and then a pullback began, in every sense. They want socialism, but whether they want to endure those misfortunes that the former people suffered, the gut is thin to build socialism by printing comments from the iPad. You have to be an idiot to introduce Grudin as president, it’s just ridiculous, ahaha, the first sanctions immediately against his accounts

    I recall another conversation between Yeltsin and Clinton. Clinton thanked Yeltsin for removing strategic missiles with a focus on America, while Clinton did not say anything about his missiles.

    By the way, I somehow looked at the register of enterprises of the Russian Federation and noticed that so many of them came under the control of foreign capital in '98.

    It was amusing that the main missile of Russian fighters is the R-27ER, which was mainly made in Ukraine. The advantage is still in the R-77, which provides greater autonomy of the aircraft.
