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

70

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 was once again getting into a mess: the Libyan parliament, the House of Representatives, an internationally recognized body of state power, has already been the customer of the printing of Libyan banknotes. At the same time, the internationally recognized government of Libya has so far had no complaints about the execution of orders by the Russian company 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.

Yes, the same Chechnya, in which the militants were paid with fake dollars .. Libyan money is most likely real, it is clear that we are talking about a legal incident, when there is a civil war and diarchy in the country .. It may well be the money of the colonel who is in the Bedouin tent at the Kremlin I listened to the singing of Mireille Mathieu with our then-president .. Arguments that Goznak "would have told about it publicly" are ridiculous .. Employees of regime enterprises and politicians do not talk about such things .. So the information about the route was simply leaked by some corrupt skins ..

    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 ..

    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 <....>

    It's okay that this happened back in September 19, as it turns out? For almost a year, evil Americans marinated the "fake" and "highley like" ... And for some reason ours and Malta did not quarrel about this all this time because of "illegally confiscated Libyan money"? And suddenly now everyone began to make statements abruptly .. There are already two central banks in Libya ... just like in 1918 the heirs of the Russian throne in Paris ... And in the meantime, Musk, apparently without reading local comments, still sent to the ISS their own ship with astronauts .. Of course, in astronautics, as in the submarine fleet, the number of dives should be equal to the number of surfacing, but it must be admitted that the Americans returned to space ... reinventing the wheel, making mistakes we had long passed, but returned.
