Nearly $8 billion of Russian assets frozen in Switzerland

Despite the fact that Switzerland is not a member of the EU and positions itself as a neutral country with one of the most reliable banking systems, it has joined the anti-Russian sanctions announced by the West in connection with our NWO in Ukraine.

As of today, nearly $8 billion worth of assets owned by Russian investors (CHF 7,5 billion at the current exchange rate) have been frozen in Switzerland. Writes about it TASS with reference to the SECO (Swiss State Secretariat for Economics) statement.



It is worth noting that the above amount was announced at the beginning of April. Then, in July, a clarification was received that 6,7 billion dollars and 15 real estate objects owned by Russians had been frozen.

As of today, SECO is again announcing a freeze of 7,5 billion Swiss francs and 15 properties. At the same time, according to the data at the beginning of July this year, the total volume of deposits of Russian citizens in Swiss banks reached a little over 46 billion francs.

The Swiss State Secretariat for Economics stated that the aforementioned frozen deposits of Russians do not make it possible to judge the effectiveness of the sanctions imposed against our country. At the same time, the department noted that in the future this amount may change, depending on the further policy of restrictions.

Recall that Switzerland is on the list of countries unfriendly to Russia, which our government approved in March of this year.

      Most likely, the conditions for the return of this money will be - the organization of subversive activities, etc., etc., etc. ... in general, if you want your money, work against Russia ....

      The economy is based on raw materials, it is more profitable for them to drop the ruble, and sell oil and gas for a more stable currency, which can be exchanged for various foreign banks and offshore accounts.

      Well, the Central Bank has already decided this issue. they included a printing press in the account of the frozen funds, rubles are printed, BUT I would like the Swiss firms that have property in Russia to be pressed, to buy up Russian assets, and hinder the development of our production.

      Reliable banking in Switzerland used to be famous for its strict observance of bank secrecy, until the US forced them to disclose information about customers in order to please American specialists. services on the first sneeze, and before that, Switzerland was considered a safe haven for dishonest people :)

      Here you have Switzerland, a country of reliable banks!

      Well, something like that, apparently, even the guys with a huge admin resource could not predict that the laws in the west also know how to wipe themselves well. It is more interesting what consequences such statements will lead to for Switzerland and what structures will appear to replace them in the horizon of 10+ years in order to create safe havens for money, since the current ones, well, let it be, have become shallow.

      But once the GDP gave these "rogues" a financial amnesty and called for the return of money to the Russian banking sector. Under this case, even state bonds were proposed to be issued, having bought which these "rogues" would have received another% upon redemption. But no, they didn't. Now no money, no real estate. Now they will be required to prove the purity of their origin, and if they cannot, then the babos will go in favor of the Swiss state treasury.
      But the GDP told them - "Then you are tormented to swallow the dust when you have to return this money" (not verbatim, but something like that).

        Well, in general, this is like a precedent for freezing the assets of individuals, which hints that any assets can be seized only if they have a Russian passport. And no matter how someone treats the oligarchs, this is a violation of the rights at the request of politicians, which, in general, is not good for everyone in general. Do not think that assets in foreign countries are an attribute exclusively of oligarchs.

        How long have crimson jackets held in high esteem with cops in business in our country, and the State Duma has long ceased to write laws for individual comrades? What were the laws and invested in the country and development. Wait, accounts are being transferred to Chinese banks, what has changed then? I’m not talking about the fact that they whine that there’s nowhere to relax normally in the country, but they stubbornly don’t invest massively in domestic tourism - exceptions for their own for overdofiga don’t count.

        And who said that the owners of these funds did not invest in production? So how do you imagine it? Well, let the "citizen" have a plant for the production of teapots, he closed the year in + and earned 100 million rubles, he should buy machine tools with this money and hope that next year will also be successful, and not 2020?
        There is such a thing as "diversification", so assets should be spread out and freezing should not "kill", but, objectively, when a conditional "dacha" burns down, it's still not pleasant, even if there is an "apartment" left.

    Here it is a Western feature in action PRIVATE PROPERTY is inviolable! wassat
    Well, how do you like this liberal?
    And since 2015, the GDP has been warned, offered to withdraw assets from Western banks, and even announced an amnesty .. In response, they giggled and drove the stolen goods ..
    Well, that’s negative They say in general that something was frozen for 100 yards (including real estate, etc.))))))
    Good news I think!!!
    And Russia will come for its money anyway
    PS The scheme was stolen and to London and Israel no longer works ..

      Here it is the Western trick in action PRIVATE PROPERTY is inviolable

      She (property) is not taken away, but only frozen. Further, the courts are more than likely to return the funds.

      And since 2015, the GDP has been warned to offer to withdraw assets from Western banks and even announced an amnesty.

      The probability of losing money in Russia is much higher. The current situation is force majeure.

    On the one hand, our pederasts - thieves, no matter what suit, do not feel sorry. We would not have seen this money anyway. On the other hand, the state of Switzerland was born thanks to the Russians. On the third, the Swiss are one of the European gang of robbers - pirates, along with the Anglo-Saxons. Fourthly, there in the Alps, if you throw a vigorous bomb, or two or three, no one will say a word to us, they will only be glad that there is no need to repay loans. So, we gave birth to them, we push them back.

    It can be seen that “not everything is fine in the Kingdom of Denmark” (W. Shakespeare, “Hamlet”), although now we are talking about Switzerland. More precisely, about its "ultra-reliable" banking system, which officially keeps the secrets of depositors, regardless of their origin. At the end of a sentence, it is more appropriate to put not a period, but a question mark. The banks of this alpine country still hold multibillion-dollar deposits made by the Bolsheviks during the civil war, and the leaders of the Third Reich, and criminals of all stripes. And it is not customary to talk about them, because banking secrecy! The precedent set for the freezing of Russian deposits is not only evidence of an anti-advertising (for the authority of Swiss banks) campaign launched by Swiss bank tycoons, but also evidence of the profanity of the Russian authorities, who are not able to analyze the financial and economic situation, calculating the predictable reaction of possible political competitors and opponents. If state funds are frozen, then for the authorities of the Russian Federation this is another lesson, although it is doubtful that it will be for the future. If these are capitals acquired by "overwhelming oligarchic labor", then I do not feel sorry for them. Although, after such “preferences” from Switzerland, one can expect new manifestations of “good will” and “difficult decisions”: moneybags will sacrifice any state interests for their good, this is not the first time for them.

    A milkmaid, a mechanic, a worker will not keep money in those banks. For the rest, I will say this - it was said a long time ago that they would take their assets from there. Switzerland will sweep the loot of our billionaires under its carpet, I will only be glad.
