And in a pandemic, the International Monetary Fund remains true to itself

And in a pandemic, the International Monetary Fund remains true to itself

Argentina refuses to pay the debts of the International Monetary Fund until it leaves the recession. This statement was made recently by Vice President Christina Kirchner. The sovereign debt of this country now exceeds 100 billion US dollars, of which 57 billion falls on IMF loans granted in 2018.


Sad Tango with Argentinean Peso


Argentina has a long история relations with the International Monetary Fund. Faced with financial and economic problems at the turn of the century, the government went into debt to foreign borrowers, five times the amount of export revenue.

The country's main lenders - the IMF and the US Treasury - put forward the condition to the Argentine authorities: to pay debts to foreign borrowers, and default on domestic obligations. This requirement led to the freezing of deposits in banks, months-long delays in wages, a 13% reduction in pensions, and an increase in business taxes.

As a result, Argentina's industrial production fell by 11,6%, unemployment covered 18,5% of the working population. The course on the payment of external debts, focused only on the interests of foreign creditors, led the country to a social explosion. Then, people were killed in clashes with the police.

The second time a technical default was announced in the Republic of Argentina in July 2014. It was associated with a delay in repayment of debt to US funds NML Capital Limited and Aurelius Capital Management.

Fitch rating agency hurried to downgrade Argentina's sovereign rating to “selective default”, limiting its credit opportunities. The Argentine government regarded these actions as political pressure on the country. In a matter of days, it dealt with the problem of payments to funds, but the "sediment" remained. Fitch's rating has long overshadowed Buenos Aires's international economic relations with the world.

Now the Argentine authorities have only declared the possibility of stopping IMF payments. This is their reaction to the borrowing conditions that the previous government agreed to. Tight requirements of the monetary fund again drove the country into recession.


For loans fund lined up


In IMF practice, there have already been cases when borrowing countries unilaterally stopped paying debts to the fund. Over the years, such decisions have been made by the authorities of Somalia, Sudan, Zimbabwe and Greece. The Greeks later helped pay the European Union. The rest fell for many years out of international financial relations.

More often, the clients of the monetary fund declare default (there are 28 such countries). Over time, debts are restructured under new conditions, and financial bondage continues further. It was noted that only countries with potentially strong economies (for example, Russia, Turkey, Mexico) could get out of the tight embrace of the IMF. For the rest, the main goal of economic activity is the payment of IMF debts.

The trick is that the current authorities of the countries take loans of the fund for their short-term tasks. The following governments are paying for these decisions, who are not voluntarily burdened with obligations to the IMF.

And now, the authorities of many countries of the Middle East and Asia have requested loans from the International Monetary Fund in order to slow down the growing economic difficulties. According to the head of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva, more than 20 countries are applying for fund assistance today. The response to these requests is highly predictable. It once again demonstrates the political orientation of international loans.

Iran turned to the fund, bewildered by American sanctions and a severe epidemic. Tehran in early March requested a loan of $ 5 billion, but so far has not yet received an answer. Even without considering her application, Venezuela was denied assistance.

And the IMF reacted to the request of Kyrgyzstan instantly. As follows from the official press release of the fund, Kyrgyzstan will be the first recipient of a package of assistance for the fight against coronavirus. This priority is due to the political bias of international financiers.

Feeling the opportunity to enter the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), they were in such a hurry that they did not even announce the terms and volumes of the loan. Only at the end of March a clarification appeared: Bishkek will receive $ 120,9 million to fight the epidemic. The funds will go to cover the balance of payments deficit, which has grown to $ 400 million. It should be understood that this loan will temporarily solve the problems of Kyrgyzstan, but will bind the Bishkek authorities to fulfill all the IMF requirements.

Ukraine forced to sell land


How this happens in practice can be seen in Ukraine. On Monday, the Verkhovna Rada assembled in a hurry adopted a law here, lifting the moratorium on the sale of agricultural land on July 1, 2021.

This moratorium was adopted at the beginning of the century, when President Leonid Kuchma was in office. Since then it has been extended many times, realizing that land is Ukraine’s last strategic resource. According to surveys, the overwhelming majority of Ukrainians (about 70%) advocate a moratorium.

However, the Ukrainian "servants of the people" pushed the law 259 votes. Against the abolition of the moratorium, the factions “Opposition Platform - For Life”, “Fatherland” and the group “For the Future” spoke out. But their strength was not enough.

It’s easy to get away from pro-government deputies: the International Monetary Fund demanded the lifting of the moratorium. This was his main condition for the provision of another program of assistance of 5,5 billion dollars. It was agreed last year. However, after the change of government of Ukraine, the IMF suspended the implementation of the program and even recalled its mission from Kiev to Washington, to its main office.

Dissatisfaction with the personnel changes was replaced by the harsh demand for reform of land relations. A moratorium on the sale prevented her. Now this obstacle is removed. President Zelensky tried his best. He convinced Ukrainians that after the adoption of the law, the assistance program would be expanded to 8 or even 10 billion dollars. And most importantly - already in early April, Kiev will receive from the IMF $ 1,5-2 billion, otherwise - default.

Default experts promise in any case. Last year, Ukraine received $ 12 billion from foreign citizens working abroad — 9% of GDP. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, most of the “zarobitans” returned home. So, the flow of money from them has dried up.

As is the case with Kyrgyzstan, IMF assistance will not block these financial losses. But Ukraine will be bound by new obligations to international financiers. They have already decently battered the country with all sorts of optimizations, reducing social spending, subsidies for utility bills, etc.

Now the next step is fertile Ukrainian land. It is not yet clear whose specific hands it will fall into, but it is quite obvious: in this difficult time, the IMF remains true to itself. The return of credit resources is more important for him than real assistance to countries.

They say that after the current pandemic, the world will change dramatically. Whether this concerns international financial and political speculators parasitizing on the difficulties and needs of people, there are no forecasts yet.

    Debtors owe to the IMF $ 83 billion. It turns out that every Ukrainian, including infants, already owes about two and a half thousand dollars. Naturally, the non-brothers will never be able to pay the debt and will be forever slaves of the IMF.

        Now the "owners of money" and speculators will start tearing up the territory of Ukraine from all sides, like dogs!

        Unfortunately, the article does not say whether Zelensky and the Servant of the People party in the Verkhovna Rada are allowed to sell Ukrainian land to foreigners.
        But even if now - at this moment - and it’s not allowed, everything is clear early on, that Ukrainian land, which has passed into private ownership to "money owners" and speculators, will historically inevitably be resold in the hands of FOREIGN owners and FOREIGN states.

          Ukraine forced to sell land
          These results of the 2014 coup in Ukraine were more than predictable. Namely.

          The narrow-minded and greedy pan-headed Ukrainians with "maydaung" of the brain turned out to be, in fact, deceived by their enemies and the henchmen of the American special services in surrendering their independence to foreign masters - the United States, Great Britain, Germany and Poland.

          Now Ukrainians under their feet HAD the land of their state, on which stands their native home. People have a place to live.
          If the state sells the land on which their house is privately owned to someone else at a MARKET value that they cannot pull, - and the land will ultimately end up with the FOREIGNERS, - then they will simply be driven off this land or forced to pay the inconceivable rental price. And why is it for the sake of homeless Ukrainians in this case will be richer than they were poor before ?!

          State sales of state land have already taken place in South America. There, the inhabitants were driven out of their native land by the new owners and now hang around as a result of this in miserable shacks on a patch of strip of land of plots along state roads.

          Yeshe H. Clinton once let slip that Washington is considering Ukraine as a territory for the resettlement of US citizens. At the same time, she stated that the Ukrainians themselves in Ukraine were not needed by Washington, that the population in Ukraine - and this together with the American settlers - should not exceed 20 million inhabitants. That all Ukrainians who will be "superfluous" and who have nowhere to go, are planned to be resettled to North Africa and the BV.

          In this regard, the opinion of the Ukrainian Zionist Igor Berkut about the fate of Ukraine is interesting.
          5 million inhabitants will be enough for Ukraine, the rest will be utilized by Igor Berkut. • Jan 20. 2018 year

            The fact that the sale of land ultimately leads to a civil war is evident in Ukraine itself
            on the example of events in the South-East of Ukraine. Namely.

            For instance. Even under Yanukovych (a month before his resignation), the Donbass and Lugansk regions were sold to American companies Shell and Chevron in 2014 50-year lease for free with prolongation then for every 5 years. He ruled all this with Biden with his son.
            In particular, precisely because of this, Turchinov and Yanukovych and Poroshenko began their aggressive war there under the name of the ATO to clean up these regions from the local population, which caused the formation of the DPR and LPR.
            See in detail - https://topwar.ru/52987-kakuyu-zadachu-reshaet-amerika.html

            And also a video from 2014.
            Lugansk and Donbass sold to the States for shale gas!


            According to the Italian Communist Julietto Chiesa.
            Five regions of Ukraine, where there are shale gas deposits, were sold (lease for 50 years with prolongation in the future) to Shell and Chevron to the American oil companies. And this is the territory of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions.
            According to the Italian journalist Giulietto Chiesa, what is now - i.e. since 2014 - taking place in the South-West of Ukraine - this is a cleansing of territories for the owners from Shell and Chevron. That's who benefits from the war in UKRAINE and why they destroy Slavyansk, Kramatorsk and Donbass.

        When granting a loan, the IMF always "recommends" the same thing; it is necessary to restructure its economy according to the "market" one as soon as possible, in fact, a market economy is wild oligarchic capitalism. And first of all, in their "recommendations" it sounds: increasing the tax burden on the population, a sharp reduction in spending on the social sphere, the army, etc. As well as the requirement to arrange privatization, privatization and sell state property and land, to private (including foreign) investors.

      This is so, and don’t go to the grandmother. The IMF will allocate $ 40 billion for the afflicted to fight the pandemic and its consequences, but the consequences of this loan to borrowers will hiccup for much longer than the coronavirus itself. In addition to the loan, interest will also have to be paid back, but if not, then you will have to share part of sovereignty, state assets, or, as in the case with Ukraine, land. In any case, the IMF will not remain in the promotion.

At first, our authorities reasonably did not meddle in this (as Lukashenka is now), and then decided that this was an excellent reason to cover up the financial crisis due to the epic oil failure and the stupid zeroing ...
            There is some logic here - anything can be written off as an epidemic, including the "effective management" of Gazprom and Rosneft. But in practice, so far only complete chaos emerges, causing irritation to people and, in addition, finishing off the economy.
            It will be worse not just for our authorities, but for the entire state.

        The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine blocked the signing of a bill on the land market, adopted by parliament on the night of March 31. This is evidenced by the data on the website of the parliament.
        In particular, the BP website has published two draft resolutions Nos. 2178-10-P - 2178-10-P1 "On the cancellation of the decision of the Verkhovna Rada on the adoption in the second reading and as a whole as a law of the draft Law of Ukraine" On amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine on the circulation of agricultural land (register No. 2178-10 of 10.10.2019) ".
        The authors of the resolution are two extra-fractional people's deputies.
        Thus, before considering these decisions, the signing of bill No. 2178-10 is blocked for both the head of parliament and the president.
        On the eve it was reported that the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on the introduction of the land market in July 2021. For the adoption of the bill in the second reading and as a whole 259 people's deputies voted with the required minimum of 226 votes.

    Here is the "for" instead of "pro" or "about" - Let's talk about the case "instead of" Let's talk about the case "
    At the level of local dialects, this is acceptable, but to make generally accepted expressions from it?
    Let's then write down all sorts of "wow", "oops", and "auch" here. The language is being updated! This is also a fresh, so to speak, stream, God forgive me.

        In the context of this poetic work, it meant "through infinity", that is, "someday". Do you feel the difference?

          And I even suspect that "Through time, stretch out" is not through infinity, but after a certain time interval in the understanding of time as space smile
          But you asked
          Where did this stupid fashion come from?

          so I helped you try to find the originssmile
          no, well, I and others "through time" I know, well, there, through the relay response time or through the delay time, for example.
          somehow

                  An expression through time is a reference to time, as to space, as in a famous song.

    In addition to 9% of the GDP, the outskirts, which provided transfers for residents, will also receive revenues from the sale of metal ore and ferrous metals in connection with the fall in demand for them in Europe to zero.

    The only source of maintaining the outskirts of the country's GDP at a non-zero level is grain production, but as a result of the cheap sale of their land shares (due to mass unemployment), the vast majority of Ukrainians will not break off either (land is owned by new magnates, and farm laborers need little at the current agricultural machinery).

    So they have a direct path from cities to villages to the household plots of their parents (extinct from the coronavirus) for growing bulbs on 50 acres and feeding the wild boar on waste from their livelihoods.

    “According to Georgieva, the IMF has already recorded an unprecedented surge in requests for emergency financing, such requests have already been submitted by about 80 countries, although so far the IMF has never considered more than several requests at the same time.

    “We see a wide range of problems arising in emerging markets: the spread of the virus, a halt in the economy, capital outflow and - for exporters of raw materials - a price shock,” Georgieva said. Many of the emerging market economies have faced problems with declining foreign exchange earnings from tourist inflows, as well as the export of some goods, she said. The head of the IMF estimated the total need of emerging markets for financing at $ 2,5 trillion. At the expense of their own resources, these countries will not be able to provide it, Georgieva warned. “Is it right then they will go to slaves or they will be expelled?

    Debtors owe to the IMF $ 83 billion. It turns out that every Ukrainian, including infants, already owes about two and a half thousand dollars. Naturally, the non-brothers will never be able to pay the debt and will be forever slaves of the IMF.

    As of February 29, the state debt of Ukraine is 83,7 billion dollars (50% of GDP), of which 49,8 billion is external debt and 33,5 billion domestic.
    Directly to the IMF, Ukraine owes $ 11 billion.

    a trend has long been noted.
    Everything that happens in Ukraine - in the Russian Federation, causes a flurry of negative emotions in the same way.
    They did something, accepted something, even what they did in the Russian Federation in dense years - this is bad, very bad.
    So I remind you that in Ukraine they did what they have already done in the Russian Federation
    Agricultural land is allowed to be bought by any individual - a citizen of Russia and a legal entity owned by citizens of Russia. Foreign citizens, foreign legal entities, stateless persons, as well as legal entities in whose charter capital the share of foreign citizens, foreign legal entities, stateless persons is more than 50%, can only rent agricultural land. At the same time, foreigners can virtually unlimitedly acquire land through the acquisition of ownership of shares (units) in the right of common ownership of land plots consisting of agricultural land for designation. Foreigners may own any number of shares in the common ownership right to an agricultural plot, except for the last part.
    In various regions, the amount of agricultural land owned by one person is set separately depending on the local characteristics of the land fund and production structure, but cannot exceed 10% of the total area of ​​agricultural land in the territory of one municipal district. The number of agricultural land leased to Russian and foreign individuals and legal entities is not limited, however, the lease term is limited to 49 years with the right to extend.

    As we see in the Russian Federation, foreigners were given even more rights in the land issue than in Ukraine - but in the Russian Federation everything is fine, and in Ukraine it is bad.
    And the experience of the Russian Federation was just used by Ukraine to cancel a similar (in the Russian Federation there was also a moratorium) moratorium! In the memo, the experience of all neighbors on the land issue was taken into account! and the Russian Federation too.

    Studies show that in Russia, due to the introduction of agricultural land into the market, the transition from less to more efficient use of land has noticeably accelerated. However, the massive purchase of land after the "opening" of the market did not happen. The share of sales transactions is insignificant; most of the contracts in circulation (99%) are lease transactions
    Positive dynamics of agricultural land prices and rental prices are observed. Experts also note fairly clear signals of a slow but positive impact on lending to agricultural producers secured by agricultural land.

    They did the same as in the Russian Federation after a long resistance.
    But this is bad ... here in the Russian Federation they believe that the path of the Russian Federation is bad ...
