Bloomberg: The problem for those imposing sanctions is that the Russian Federation has stopped disclosing information about accounts in foreign currency

Despite the large-scale sanctions imposed by the West on Russia, Moscow manages not only to maintain profits from exports, but to increase them. Writes about this agency Bloomberg.

Today, tens of billions of dollars and euros, according to the agency, come to Russia from the sale of oil, gas, food on the world market. Although anti-Russian sanctions hit most of the country's banks, the National Clearing Center (NCC) was able to avoid them. It plays a key role in energy trading and has shown growth in its foreign exchange reserves.



The main part of the money in the National Clearing Center is kept in yuan. The Chinese currency has become an alternative to dollars, euros and other currencies of unfriendly states in a difficult foreign policy situation. In addition, other lending institutions are also seeing an increase in RMB deposits.

Although the United States and the European Union are trying to isolate Russia from their financial systems, they are not doing well, the agency emphasizes in its publication. Russia has been able to create such tools and mechanisms that significantly reduce the harm to the national economy from Western sanctions, and one of the most important among them is the storage of profits in yuan, since China is a friendly country.

The National Clearing Center has the ability to make payments in dollars and has correspondent accounts in American banks. However, since the danger of imposing sanctions against the NCC remains, the bulk of the dollars at its disposal have already been converted into Chinese currency.

Bloomberg also notes that Russia has stopped disclosing information about foreign currency accounts and its gold and foreign exchange reserves. This is due to the arrest in the West of 300 billion dollars of Russian money. The lack of such information leads to additional problems for those who impose sanctions against the Russian Federation.

As for the NCC, Russia demands that payments for Russian gas be made through it. Therefore, sanctions against the NCC will lead to the cessation of supplies of energy resources vital for Europe.

Bloomberg Economics estimates the total windfall at over $100 billion. In the third quarter of 2022 alone, net asset accumulation from foreign earnings was almost $47 billion. At the same time, Western experts cannot name exact data.

    An article from the category of how do we "have the West"? Will the site write about financial outflows this year? And about the fact that billionaires are sitting near Putin, who, in order to save their loot, will easily give impudent Saxons any, even secret information, to think hard?

      If exports are 2 times higher than imports, then the difference will somehow remain in foreign accounts and will sit in the "capital withdrawal" category. The problem is not in this but in the imbalance of exports and imports.

          Not everything is so simple in this life. To restrict exports = to deprive companies working for export. Increase imports = do not allow domestic producers to develop.
          The only way out is to increase trade for rubles. This is a strategic issue.

          Well, firstly, there are long-term contracts, failure to fulfill which threatens with fines. And Some counterparties still fulfill their contracts. Secondly, it is very difficult to "plug" a pipe with gas or oil. If oil is rushing, where to put it? So simple solutions don't always work.

            Oil hasn't been going anywhere for a long time. They pump it up. Just turn off the pump and that's it. If it's a gas well, then just close the tap.
            Most of the gas storages are former fields. Gas perfectly enters, is stored and exits.

              My brother works in the oil industry, servicing wells. Back in the spring, I asked him if it was easy to cut off a well, and then restart it when necessary. I thought it was a very big problem. But he told me that there is nothing complicated about it. A purely technical and calmly resolved issue. They have to periodically cut down emergency drilling rigs and then, after repair, put them back into operation.

          In fact, gas recipients pay in euros. Simply, Gazprom takes into account the payment in rubles after the exchange operation on the stock exchange. This scheme is built in an attempt to protect the NCC (national clearing house) from SWIFT shutdown. Since in this case, Gazprom will not be able to receive payment for gas with the corresponding consequences.
          And to disconnect the NCC from SWIFT or from foreign correspondent banks in the West, oh, how itchy for a long time. This would be a very serious blow to both our exports and imports.

            In fact, gas recipients pay in euros.

            gas recipients buy rubles for euros on the stock exchange, and rubles go to Gazprom's account

            individuals and importers buy currency on the exchange, it is withdrawn from importers back from Russia for goods, and individuals buy at their own peril and risk, they themselves understand that they can lose it, but private traders are unlikely to block currency accounts
            And to disconnect the NCC from SWIFT or from foreign correspondent banks in the West, oh, how itchy for a long time.

            well, they will turn it off, but how will they buy gas?
            This would be a very serious blow to our exports and imports.

            Imports now will mainly be from China, disconnecting from SWIFT will not affect it in any way, and nothing needs to be disconnected to cut off exports to the West, it’s easier for them to stop buying)

              Gazprombank is engaged in exchange operations. The gas buyer has 2 accounts opened there in euros and rubles. Payment is considered received when Gazprombank has exchanged euros received as gas payment into rubles and transferred them to Gazprom's ruble account.

              The share of the dollar in trade transactions with China, India and other "friendly" countries is still very high. The shutdown of the NCC would slow down this trade very seriously.

                In Gazprombank, only accounts are open. The exchange operation itself takes place on the exchange.
                The euro account in Gazprombank does not belong to Gazprom, but to the buyer. Therefore, it is useless to block it, they will block their own money.
                As a result, Gazprom does not have any currency left, it is sold on the Moscow Exchange during the exchange.

                The share of the dollar in trade transactions with China, India and other "friendly" countries is still very high.

                So this is good, we spend the currency and it is withdrawn, not lying.
                The currency that is sold by gas buyers on the exchange is bought by importers, and then they spend it on imports from China, India, etc.

                Disconnecting from SWIFT will not affect operations with dollars, these are generally different things. SWIFT is only a system for transferring information between banks, it was somehow transferred before it) it just took several days before. And we have SPFS, an analogue of SWIFT, working with China, and China has its own analogue of CIPS.

                Only the freezing of all dollar correspondent accounts of all Russian banks will have an effect. But Russia has a lot of foreign trade, this will only lead to the fact that most of the world economy completely abandons the dollar and replaces it with the yuan. For the US, that would be a shot in the foot. The process of de-dollarization has already begun.

                  Well, that's good, but we can't spend all the currency.
                  Disconnecting from SWIFT will not affect transactions with dollars


                  Operations with dollars go only through American correspondent banks and only through SWIFT. No options.

                    It must be remembered that SWIFT is not a payment system in itself, but only a specific messenger, a system of standardized messages between banks. Financial institutions exchange payments, which only confirm the transactions themselves, sometimes other financial documentation is present in the transfer. Once upon a time, SWIFT replaced messages by telegraph and telephone, becoming a convenient and universal means of confirming transactions, within which more than 8,4 billion messages are sent annually.

                    The hypothetical disconnection of Russia from this system will definitely complicate the confirmation of transactions for some time, but the transfers themselves in foreign currency will not be banned - this requires separate sanctions against Russian banks and financial companies.

                      Stupidity written. So of course it's just an exchange of information. But the fact is that American banks, apart from SWIFT, do not provide for any other exchange of information. No telegraph, no teletype, nothing. And dollars are transferred only through American banks.
                      With yuan, yes, there will be no problems. With rupees, it is also likely that if the Americans do not put pressure on it, as our map of the world has already been blocked almost everywhere abroad.

                        this is not true

                        firstly, SWIFT is headquartered in Belgium, American banks (and the dollar) of course will not be completely dependent on a system that is not controlled and managed in another country

                        secondly, America has its own messaging systems, such as CHIPS, Fedwire, ACH
                        SWIFT is only the most common system, but not the only one, there are dozens of them in the world

                        if the correspondent account in an American bank is not blocked, then the bank will (obliged) to accept orders on it, by swift or not, it doesn’t matter, at least by phone, it’s already his problem to provide the client with a method for how he will send orders

                        We also have our own systems. SPFS for example or Telex (I think he is still alive). But they are not in America. We don't have CHIPS or Fedwire or anything. And what to do?
                        When the United States needed to block Swift, Sberbank, VTB, Rosselkhoz and others, the Belgians obediently did everything. So they have great control over everything.

                        who said no?
                        CHIPS has 190 countries and 55 currencies, probably also used in Russia

                        When the United States needed to block Swift, Sberbank, VTB, Rosselkhoz and others, the Belgians obediently did everything. So they have great control over everything.

                        do not confuse the control of politics and the control of the financial transactions themselves

                        The United States will not give all its financial flows under the full control of a European organization, this is nonsense

                        Yes, and I have already said what systems are in use in the USA, so your statement that American banks use only SWIFT is incorrect,
                        and for example, in transactions using the dollar, CHIPS is much superior to SWIFT, there for a year of transfers of 400 trillion dollars

                        Are you so sure that this is a European organization? Oh well. And so, of course, the Americans are not fools to give control to someone.
                        In our interbank dollar repo market, rates in early October reached 90% only with rumors that the NCC was disconnected from Swift. For some reason, no one began to count on CHIPS.
                        Again. Swift is the only system that connects our banks with American correspondent banks. And what the Americans have there still does not matter. At least how much they transfer there.

    Maybe I'm wrong, I'm looking from my little bell tower, but still ...
    This news is from Bloomberg. Good. But in the past few months, constantly in our news was the following ...
    Here they are imposing sanctions. And that's how we got around them!
    They don't supply it to us anymore. And now we buy everything through such countries?
    They don't want to buy from us. And we still sell them like this!
    Probably those who oppose us are well aware of the possible solutions to problems on our part. Why yell about how we adapt then? Are there really no "doves" on the other side, only "hawks"?
    But if we constantly show them as fools in the news, what can we expect then?

    As for the NCC, Russia demands that payments for Russian gas be made through it. Therefore, sanctions against the NCC will lead to the cessation of supplies of energy resources vital for Europe.

    From the announcement of sanctions, the NCC will be blocked? Not!

    And there can be any number of these NCCs, with a different legal set of letters.

    Some nonsense. One side
    has correspondent accounts with US banks
    Right here
    Russia stopped disclosing information about accounts in foreign currency
    How can this be? Russia can hide, not hide, but all world settlements in dollars go through American banks, which know perfectly well where every non-cash dollar in the world is located. Maybe there are some tricky conversion mechanisms, but they won't tell us about it.

    Bloomberg: The problem for those imposing sanctions is that the Russian Federation has stopped disclosing information about accounts in foreign currency


    The problem with imposing sanctions is that they are just idiots. 30 years under the assets of the Russian Federation to print dollars, and quote them on the stock exchanges of the Russian Federation, and then impose sanctions.
    These 300 yards that are already under sanctions are nothing and dust, compared with the complete withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the dollar system (what is it going to) by delisting all the shares of the Russian Federation from all import exchanges, and this is nothing compared to demonstrating to the whole world (and not only RF) of the fact that money and assets are worth today in the west.
    After that, they are surprised at the Saudis, who openly send them. idiots
