Cyprus tax as a blow to Russia

82
How was the decision of the European Union on Cyprus ultimatum born? This is a separate историяwhich is not completely, but at least partially became known. Post factum The so-called Eurogroup gathered in Brussels - a dozen and a half dozen EU finance ministers. They decided to discuss Cyprus and Russian money there. They didn’t call Russia and didn’t warn in advance - they weren’t going to solve anything. But suddenly, in secret from the whole world and even from their governments, the ministers with surprise for themselves wrote an ultimatum to Cyprus and immediately presented it - about confiscating deposits - otherwise no help.


That’s how the European Commission’s head Manuel Barroso describes it. When at the Moscow-Russia-European Union conference: partnership opportunities, Barroso was asked why Moscow was not informed, he replied: “Russia was not aware, because the European community — we would not talk openly about it — knew.”

If so, then the officials took an unexpected decision for themselves, not agreed with the EU countries, a decision that destroys faith in the EU banking system. In fact, the officials changed the rules as the game progressed, because deposits in the Cypriot banks of the European Union were taken according to one rules, and after a nightly decision by a handful of not the highest officials, the rules for deposits suddenly became different.

How to explain it? Preference players will understand. Sit down on the train to the south and hand over the Leningradka. Starts to carry. And suddenly at night near Rostov you are told that we are playing in “Esochinka”. According to the classics, for such - a candelabra on the head. But it is in the maps, and here - the European Union.

Awkwardly, the Europeans in Moscow tried to explain this by the sleepiness of the finance ministers gathered in Brussels.

"As Barroso correctly noted, the decision was made early in the morning - it was almost 4 in the morning hours - everyone was slightly sleepy, perhaps not fully aware of the consequences," said Wolfgang Schuessel, in 2000-2007, the Austrian Federal Chancellor.

Here Anton Pavlovich Chekhov is remembered. Remember his story "I want to sleep"? There the tired to death of the nurse - a teenage girl 13 years - in a half asleep state, not realizing herself, strangled an endlessly screaming baby in the cradle in hallucinations - if only he would shut up. "Laughing, winking and threatening the green spot with her fingers, Varka sneaks up to the cradle and leans towards the child. After strangling him, she quickly lies down on the floor, laughs for joy that she can sleep, and after a minute she is already asleep, as dead."

Well, and in Brussels, it was so? According to the ex-chancellor of Austria Schussel, so. Sleepy, they say the ministers were not fully aware of the consequences. Having slept, one must think, understand that they have muffled confidence in the banking system of the European Union.

“It seems to me that it’s not quite wise,” Schüssel admitted. “Perhaps we need to somehow reconsider the approach to making such decisions.”
One way or another, today the world is already in a new situation. And Russia is also in it - with all its minuses and pluses.

By the way, there are pluses: Russian capital will obviously be looking for more reliable and stable jurisdictions. Perhaps it makes sense to go back home.
Champagne poured into the river and his eyes were misty slightly - five years ago, Cyprus was noisy celebrating its entry into the Eurozone. And now it turns out that it would be better not to enter.

The first bell rang last November, when the German intelligence agency BND shared a secret report with Spiegel magazine: Cyprus is on the verge of default, but you don’t need to save it, because Russian oligarchs will get it - more precisely, some 80 oligarchs who use Cyprus as European newspapers were mocked as a Trojan donkey for getting into the European Union. Merkel was accustomed to trusting her spies, and besides, soon elections. But the Russians will not get poorer anyway.

“Germany’s role in all of Cyprus’s history is extremely important. The fact that, after the initial, relatively mild proposal was rejected, Germany is pushing even tougher measures, says that we are dealing with a geopolitical crisis in relations between Berlin and Moscow, and Moscow and Washington, in which Europe and Germany play only the role of transmission links. The decision of the Eurozone finance ministers and IMF officials to illegally withdraw deposits from the main banks of Cyprus was a carefully thought out, albeit seemingly Good decision.

The goal of these actions is to strike at Russia and its interests in Europe, ”said William Engdahl, an economist and author of the book Gods of Money.

If so, then it is understandable why the calmest person last week was the head of the US Federal Reserve Board, Ben Bernanke. “We are closely following the situation in Cyprus, but we see no risks for the American financial system or for the American economy,” he said.

“Bernanke’s cold-blooded reaction is related to the role that the IMF plays in this crisis. In reality, the IMF is an appendage of the American treasury. Bernanke is clearly watching what is happening in Cyprus not without pleasure,” says William Engdal.

The main damage is not even the withdrawal of deposits, but the freezing of the activity of companies registered in Cyprus, if the ban on all monetary transactions is indeed introduced. Is it good to be offshore? Probably bad. But what if all your competitors have one foot there - they are avoiding taxes, reducing costs?

According to The Wall Street Journal, 60 of the largest American companies in the past year brought 166 billions of dollars or 40% offshore to offshore companies. General Electric, Microsoft, Apple, Pfizer. Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico. Almost half of foreign direct investment in the economy of India falls on the island of Mauritius. There is a Cyprus, and Brazil, and China. This is called “capital outflow”, and Russian companies play by the general rules. Now it turns out that even in these rules an exception is made for them.

“The first lesson we need to learn from Cyprus’s history is that we cannot blindly trust what the IMF’s offer to us or impose on the G8. Everyone has their own interests,” said Sergei Glazyev, presidential adviser to the Russian Federation. .

If the restaurant serves borsch, it does not mean that you are in Russia. From the 1877 year, when the great powers were just beginning to struggle for the Turkish inheritance in the Mediterranean, to the 1960 Cyprus - the British protectorate. However, he did not cease to be after the declaration of independence. There are still two British military bases and a large US-British Center for Electronic Intelligence, tied to the global system Echelon.
When a scandal broke out in 2009 with the detention of the Monchegorsk ship by the Americans, allegedly transporting ammunition from Iran to Syria, Hillary Clinton convinced Cyprus to take the arrested cargo for inspection and storage with a single phone call.

In 2011, 98 containers with explosives mysteriously blew into the air, and with them the career of the then president. From the point of view of logistics, no war in the Middle East is complete without Cyprus. This is really a safe haven.

In chess, this is called zugzwang - each next step only complicates the situation. To this, apparently, the calculation was made. It is extremely inconvenient to defend the Russian residents of Cyprus, who can hardly hope for the sympathetic attitude of the majority of their fellow citizens, although they warned: "You will torture the dust to swallow." On the other hand, one can silently observe how one is “swallowed”, it is also impossible: at stake is not private savings, but the reputation of the state and, most importantly, its interests in a critical region.

The most important thing is that all this is being done under the slogan: “Doing this with the Russians is not only possible, but it should,” because they are barbarians, gangsters, thieves, obscurantists, homophobes and who else. All in accordance with the famous thesis: "The new world order will be created against Russia, at the expense of Russia, on the ruins of Russia." What other humiliations must a domestic entrepreneur go through in order to part with illusions?
One of the bars in the center of the city of Paphos in the evenings is filled with not pathos people. Where else can you see purebred English dancing under Pugachev? The co-owner of the institution, David to the Russians, has the most tender feelings. True, he keeps all his money in England, but he still experiences.

“This is a planned action directed against the Russians,” David said. “If you look who should suffer the most, it will be clear that the Russians are not. The Cypriots, not the English are Russians. And I’m sure that this is a deliberate political blow from the European Union This is not a tax - it is theft, theft! "

It is called "export of capital", and Russian companies play by the general rules.

          Whatever the author of the article would say, the blow came just not against Russia, as Western rogues expected, but against the West. And the current situation is like Putin’s hand. The Russian state money in Cyprus - the cat cried, and private Russian capital received a lesson, and whether it is Russian capital, by and large, since this money does not work for Russia. I think that after this historic watershed, the West itself will already begin to swallow dust, in attempts to help from Russia, and this is also not far off, because trust in the Western financial system has fallen below the plinth. In short, the West drove itself into a trap. I repeat, in recent years, everything that the West does not do, everything works against itself.
          Sometimes I think if this is not a Russian GRU action, because it was simply impossible to expect more stupidity, or rather a gift for Russia from the West.

            alexneg - Colleague, you are absolutely right - quote - "... the blow just did not hit Russia ..." - that's right, you shouldn't consider Russia robbed types who withdraw their money just from under Russian taxation! In the photo at the beginning of the article it is written - "do not betray us brothers" - and when you spent money on Cyprus, did not pay taxes for the defense industry and pensioners - were we your brothers or were we distant, distant relatives? As for some part of the state money, as far as I know, only individuals are going to rob. persons, and the accounts of organizations are not touched (such infa took place in Vesti24, but how true it is difficult to judge).

              Precisely said. In general, I am surprised by this position - when we feel bad - help the brothers !, and when we feel bad with interest how it all ends. And who helped us in the 1998 year? Friend is known in trouble.

              No, they don’t seem to return even to their owners. These funds will be mothballed. And, if Russia makes an offshore thread at home, then money will flow to the West with significantly smaller flows. But in any case, the flow of money to the West will decrease significantly. It seems that in the West, from its majesty, the brains dried out to the size of half a walnut. It turns out that licorice is also harmful to one's own health - the navel is torn.

              A gift, I think in the following:
              Shock therapy for those who adhere to certain views - or consider themselves smarter than others and do not understand why they need their own state, when they "themselves with a mustache" or do not like their own country and keep money abroad "from the principle" or, well, thieves.
              It would be interesting to compose a psychological portrait of a typical money-holder in Cyprus - otherwise I’m not quite sure what I wrote.
              But still, what other reasons to keep money there (and not a checking account)?
              Probably these are the very ones who use terms like "aya Rashka" and "blame" - so this is the same liberal environment from which Bolotnaya grew, etc.

        There is a blow to Russia, but it is very indirect. Let's figure out whose money is in Cyprus on, attention, deposit accounts (and only this whole catastrophe will affect them). Industrialists? - No, then maybe Merchants or Investors? - Not too .... Why? Yes, because all of the above groups have money in circulation. For them (these groups of citizens), inflation eats up the money on deposit and there is much more room for them (money) to be attached.

        The answer is simple - on the offshore, in deposit accounts, money lies mainly with those who received it illegally and who do not have their own business where this money can work. Feel where I'm driving? That's right, corrupt officials and other thieves, that's who the EU has stolen money from. What's bad about it? but nothing, the expropriators were expropriated and that’s it.

        What a blow from this to Russia? And here's what: let's say you are a corrupt official and have just lost 30% of your money, what will you do? Right, restore. But as? Only one well-known method, take even greater bribe to compensate for the loss. And who is suffering? That's right, those who pay bribes, i.e. the population of Russia or those who really work.

        This is just sad.

            Goga, you know, it seems to me that "iPhone" and others of its caliber did not suffer, not that level. Rather, it is the level of Vasilyeva and all kinds of provincial "effective managers". Although there are rumors that Roskosmos has suffered. I have no specific documents on hand, there were only oral complaints, which is why I say that it is a rumor.

            From some personal sources, it is known that now all the larger "fish" prefer to avoid the jurisdiction of the US and the EU, many "laundering" offshore companies register accounts in banks in the UAE and Hong Kong. There are no questions asked and there is no such strong possibility of pressure from the "world democracy".
            Switzerland has not been canceled either, but this is more "stash" of big businessmen, gray money, i.e. money hidden from taxes.

        "On the thief and the hat is on fire"

        "... This story actually happened many hundreds of years ago. In one of the cities in a large market, thefts were constantly occurring, but the thief could not be caught. Sellers and buyers suffered from thieves. Then local traders turned to the sage , who listened carefully to them and replied that he would come on the day when the most people would gather in the market.

        Time passed, the thefts continued, and the sage did not go. And on one of the holidays, a whole walk took place in the market. It seemed that the whole city was gathered in the square. At that moment, a sage appeared and shouted loudly: “Look, the hat is on the thief”. Several people grabbed their checkers at once. As it turned out, they committed all these thefts. When the sage was asked why he had not come for so long, he replied that on any other day one or two thieves could be caught. And today, the whole city is here, so they caught everyone at once ....

    Cyprus tax as a blow to Russia?
    You want to say that the crooks’s money frozen in Cyprus will be replenished from the budget of the Russian Federation?
    This will not be allowed.
    Putin has long warned that money would be taken from Western banks.
    Who didn’t need to hide - they took it.
    The rest of the money, Russia would not have ever seen it, so if it disappeared, it’s the way to go!

      partly in Cyprus owners of funds that have a “gray” origin will suffer, but at least part of the money that will be lost there largely due to the Russian Government’s unwillingness to analyze in detail in Cyprus in the summer of 2012 is quite a “white” money of corporations

    All is correct. We had to invest money in our economy. Ships are the same to build. The top of stupidity is to get involved in some kind of power actions for people who rob their country and treat it like a cash cow.

    How does this action relate to the Russians? If you count by nationality - then the majority of Russian citizens holding money in Cyprus are of another nationality. If the Russians are concerned, then what kind of Russian will keep money abroad? I believe that money in Cyprus is not for the benefit of Russia and I personally am deeply indifferent to what will happen to them!

    The guys agree that the case officials. Cons are adventures of EE and IMF in Cyprus:
    1) an approximate investment amount of 10-15 billion euros * 40 = 400-600 billion rubles. A large amount, but not critical. 1/30 of the budget. A sharp drop in the ruble against the Euro (currency wars). The ruble may be omitted in relation to any currency.
    2) Hence the inflation. jump in prices and so on. leverage of the market.
    3) the standard of living will decrease, although not very much, but who knows.

      Not all are stolen, but 40 percent, like, i.e. about 300 billion rubles.

      The bad thing is that they are going to introduce restrictions on bank transactions, i.e. withdrawing the remaining money will also not be easy.

      Separate flies from cutlets. Deposits in Cyprus, mainly physical. persons. And what about the Russian budget? The ruble will not fall sharply against the euro. The euro is also sausage. Our inflation accelerates more due to growth in energy resources and prices for services of natural monopolies. Then, if that, in response, Russia may begin to get rid of the euro in gold and foreign currency reserves and EU securities. Gold is now more in price.

This is the first way to join the EU and NATO. Those. Greek Orthodox brothers, as NATO members, were supposed to kill Russian and Soviet citizens, and now the Arctic fox came and not hunger, and their denyushki will suffer and they will have to work a little with their pens, then save the Russian brothers. In general, I like the policy of the Germans, "no money, let the island." Plus, remember how this Cyprus screamed about the gas shelf, which Gazprom turns out to have nothing for nothing, but the screeching was precisely to undermine our "Streams" especially under construction, and this is again, albeit an economic, but war. When Russia was in trouble and poverty, for some reason, not a single "brother" could be seen, they only came to share the inheritance with the beggar, and now the "Russian brothers" were sawing.

    World War 3 will begin with a small Middle Eastern state (Cyprus - 850 thousand people, Syria - 20 million people) And the reason for war can be anything, if in the era of monarchies such a reason was the murder of Prince Ferdinand, today this is no longer a reason , no one will fight for the idea, because there are no ideas (values, except money-gold), and no one in the prince-king already sees the Holy Monastery, who should be protected and served him. But the economic losses of the "elite" of society, although not entirely clean on hand and even with a clear criminal past and present - is there no reason ...?!
    As the article correctly says in the article, the EU decision on Cyprus is a political one, and I would add here the financial and economic BLOW on Russia. Rosneft, Rusnano, Gazprom, etc. represented in Cyprus, and this is a huge part of the Russian economy, which has been hit with the aim of punishing, teaching, cracking down on the pitfalls of economic growth in Russia, with the ultimate goal of destroying and subjugating - the conclusion about the practical application of controlled chaos theory in relation to Russia suggests itself.
    According to the rules of combat, a counterattack should follow. It is possible that the Western crap democrats are hoping for this to finally lower the iron curtain. However, the iron curtain will finally kill the Russian state, because unlike the USSR, Russia is not self-sufficient and very dependent on imports and therefore vulnerable.
    So far, one thing is clear - a planned and cynical action by the West with far-reaching prospects. The West struck, threw down the gauntlet in the hope of further aggravation and a duel with a fatal, I believe, outcome. The classic situation of the "fork" - wherever you stick, losses are everywhere.

    The loot of the loot is a political slogan that appeared in Russia in 1918 as the Russian tracing-paper of the Marxist term “expropriation of the expropriators.” This term was based on the Marxist theory of surplus value, from which Marx himself concluded that in the process of exploitation by the working-class capitalists, the share appropriated by them surplus value gradually accumulates over time, so that after some time in general all the property of the exploiters becomes expropriated from the working class. This expression was first used by V. I. Lenin in a speech on January 24 (according to other sources) on January 23, 1918 as amended by we rob the loot. "

The EU was obliged to check the incoming money on the bank accounts of Cyprus, the Euroinushi did not do this in order to now take this dirty money for themselves. Well, what Russian bureaucrats will file a lawsuit - they will most likely prove that this is a "kickback".

    2. Now it turns out that even in these rules an exception has been made for them. Such an exception is convenient, which will quickly become the rule. When it comes to Russia. But economic wars are better than real wars.
    3. If so, then it is understandable why the calmest person last week is the head of the US Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke. "We are closely monitoring the situation in Cyprus, but we do not see any risks for the American financial system or for the American economy," he said.
    The MICEX reacted to this calmness. Not very nervous, but noticeable. Add 3% drop in Eurasia to Abramovich after false rumors of his arrest in the US. Let's remember what some patriots on the forum shouted in unison about the dollar the day before yesterday? Here's the answer. Not a single NATO aircraft took off, not a single tank moved, not a single Estonian soldier set foot on the territory of the Russian Federation, and the country suffered losses. So far in monetary terms.

    Everything that happened over the past 3 days in scope should and could have been extended to the 3 of the year: BAB, Ukraine towards the EU, Cyprus, problems in the Eurozone and the Fed's reaction to the US public debt. Some coincidences are disturbing ...

    But on the other hand, you and I are witnessing a frank "gop-stop, we came from around the corner" Here it becomes no longer important who exactly tavar.
    The process became a system, they wanted, they took money from Gaddafi, they wanted from our thieves, they wanted from anyone.

    For example, I am sure that this is purposefully planned, but the goal is not Russian oligarchs, as it seems on the surface, but the entire European system as a whole. The guys there are in debt like silk.
    Now the whole thinking world will begin to realize that they can no matter what you just weld on the kosher skate.
    I think that the next step will be a massive withdrawal of money from the accounts and, as a result, the collapse of the European banking system, of course, the Americans who spread their hands say sorry, all Europeans are stupid, and it’s impossible to work in such an atmosphere, so forget about the dollar and we are not in business.
    And Cyprus is purely so, they will bite it publicly and throw it at the mercy of

    I don’t understand the moans: now, our thief was robbed, now they will steal from us more!
    Nothing of the kind. Thieves always steal EXACTLY AS MUCH as they can steal, and not a ruble less.
    Further explain? wink
