US State Department accuses RF Goznak of printing $ 1,1 billion counterfeit Libyan notes


In Malta, the seizure of counterfeit Libyan dinars took place. The total amount amounted to the equivalent of 1,1 billion US dollars.


Such a message appeared on the official website of the US State Department.

The ministry claims that the alleged Russian company Goznak made counterfeit bills. This factory is state owned and prints money and passports. The Americans believe that the banknotes were ordered not by the Central Bank of this North African country, but by an unknown illegal Libyan structure.

The U.S. State Department states that the goal of these actions of Russia is to destabilize the economic situation in Libya:

This incident again underlines the need for Russia to end its harmful and destabilizing actions in Libya.

Goznak, in fact, prints not only Russian rubles, but also the currency of other states. True, he always does this by order of the official authorities of these countries. Among them is Libya. For her, Russia has been issuing its national currency since 2016. And although the customer is the Libyan House of Representatives, which is located in Tobruk, the government of national consent, based in Tripoli, has no claims to the authenticity of this money. But authenticity was suddenly preoccupied in the USA.

      Just like in Syria. Most likely under the contract. Haftar simply concluded the contract, and he is not recognized = counterfeit in the international sense.

      Goznak printed banknotes for Syria

      Goznak printed banknotes for the needs of Syria, reports RNS with reference to the head of the company Arkady Trachuk.

      “We executed, the order was like that. At the moment, no, there’s just no such need, ”Trachuk said.

      According to him, the order was completed last year. Damascus paid the order without any problems and on time.

      printing money ordered by the Libyan government


      Seal tempered Haftar, pushed through Tobruk where the local Duma is sitting (which has at least some legitimacy). However, the government is sitting in Tripoli and it did not order (namely, it should conclude a contract) the printing of money in favor of Haftar. Therefore, they were seized in Malta during transportation.

    The State Department once again got into a puddle: the Libyan parliament - the House of Representatives, an internationally recognized public authority, has been the customer of the press for Libyan banknotes. At the same time, the internationally recognized government of Libya still had no complaints about the execution of orders by the Russian enterprise Goznak.

    The fact that some kind of Malta has seized a foreign ship with Libyan banknotes already paid is a question for Malta and, first of all, a property issue.

        To all the minusers .. - so you minus the author of the article .. :) In general, this is a very serious accusation from another state .. and a clear harbinger of armed conflict .. remember Hitler Germany with fake rubles, Kolchak, who printed his money in Civil. .the same Chechnya, in which fake dollars were paid to the militants .. Libyan money is most likely real, it is clear that we are talking about a legal incident when there is a civil war and dual power in the country .. It could well be the money of a colonel who is in a Bedouin tent the Kremlin listened to Mireille Mathieu singing with our then president .. The reasoning that Goznak “would have heard it publicly” is ridiculous .. Employees of security companies and politicians don’t talk about such things .. So the information about the route was simply leaked by some corrupt skins ..

    This statement is sewn in white thread.
    The stump is clear that if this were true, then the money would have been delivered where necessary without a hitch.
    In addition, Goznak is quite a state-owned enterprise, the production of left banknotes on which without the highest sanction is impossible from the word at all.
    Again, the manufacturing process involves the participation of many hundreds of people.
    At the same time, you can’t hide the sewn in the bag.
    So there is another provocation ..

    The Americans believe that the banknotes were ordered not by the Central Bank of this North African country, but by an unknown illegal Libyan structure.

    Absolutely.
    The Central Bank of Libya, headquartered in Tripoli, is the only legitimate central bank of Libya, and only with its permission can a bank note be issued. None of the governments (recognized / not recognized) are not entitled to interfere in its activities.
    This is exactly how the Central Bank of the Russian Federation works.

    Article 75 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation:

    1. The monetary unit in the Russian Federation is the ruble. Money emission is carried out exclusively by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. The introduction and issue of other money in the Russian Federation is not allowed.

    2. Protection and ensuring the stability of the ruble is the main function of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, which he carries out independently of other public authorities <....>

    But nothing that this happened back in September 19, as it turns out? For almost a year, the “fake” and “highly like” evil Americans marinated ... And for some reason, ours and Malta did not quarrel about this because of the “illegally taken Libyan money”? And suddenly now everything started abruptly making statements .. Now two central banks in Libya turned out to be .. just like the heirs of the Russian throne in Paris in 1918 ... Meanwhile, Musk, apparently not reading local comments, nevertheless sent to the ISS your ship with astronauts .. Of course, in astronautics, like in a submarine fleet, the number of dives should equal the number of floats, but we must admit - the Americans returned to space ... reinventing the wheel, making mistakes that we had long gone, but returned.
