Today Russian Duma banned money transfers from Russia to Ukraine through any banks other than Russian banks. This comes as an anticipated mirror response to 2016 ban of Russian payment systems on Ukraine territory. More details about the new law from NovorossiaVision.
Further, this move is a logical reaction to the escalating terrorism against Russian banks by Ukrainian Nazis, while the Kiev government either supports them or looks the other way.
In the past couple of weeks various ‘Ukraine patriots’ from fascist battalions, radical and ukro-nazi parties walled in, vandalized and/or looted several branches of Sberbank and four other Russian bank subsidiaries in Ukraine. Initially, most of these attacks took place in Kiev, but now they have spread throughout the entire territory.

Kiev government added oil to the fire by ‘forbidding Russian banks in Ukraine from transferring assets out of the country.’
Attacks against Russian banks were openly supported by the majority of Ukraine Rada deputies, advisor to president Poroshenko, speaker of the Rada Parubiy, interior minister Avakov. Other names implicated in attacks on Russian banks include oligarchs such as Renat Akhmetov, whose properties were recently semi-nationalized in Donetsk and Lugansk (LDPR).
A few facts:
- Officially, there are presently 3.5 million Ukrainian citizens as temporary workers in Russia. The vast majority of them send money back home as the only means for their families to survive. Now they won’t be able to do that.
- Add to that millions of Ukrainians who have permanently moved to Russia and are considered permanent residents or naturalized citizens, but who still help out relatives in Ukraine.
- Money transfers from Russia to Ukraine amount to billions of dollars annually.
- According to official data, Russian banks constitute 12% of Ukraine’s banking system, however, I seriously doubt this is a true number. It is common knowledge in Ukraine that Russian banks are considered the only honest and solvent banks on its territory. Whoever can, prefers to keep their assets in Russian banks.
- 1 million 250 thousand Ukrainians keep their money in Sberbank alone. This includes pensions, assets, credits, etc.
- After several months ago Kolomoysky drained his Privat Bank and transferred stolen customers’ assets offshore, the once Ukraine’s biggest bank was nationalized. Privat Bank customers flocked to Russian subsidiaries as the only safe banks in Ukraine.
You may ask why Russian subsidiaries didn’t withdraw from Ukraine, despite attacks? It is a tough call, but I do believe they are correct to stay. Kiev juntas and ukro-nazi regimes come and go, but the people of Ukraine remain. It is a good idea to support the decent Ukrainian citizens, despite how tough it is.
As a matter of fact, I once heard Putin personally ask Russian banks and other remaining businesses to stay in Ukraine, if possible.
However, Kiev is doing absolutely everything to chase the remaining Russian businesses away and to provoke Russia into taking some drastic return measures. If Russia withdraws as Kiev ukro-nazis insist, it will be the final nail in the coffin of poor Ukraine, as its economy dies off.
I predicted this in 2014: ‘Ukraine’s economy will be completely destroyed before a meaningful change and turnaround can occur. After that, Ukraine will turn away from the West and towards Russia.’
Kiev Euro-Maidan fought for the ‘EU dream’ – and here it is…
Ukro-nazi ‘peaceful’ protesters violently destroying what’s little left of poor Ukraine
Burning people alive in Odessa (pic of Odessa tragedy: May 2, 2014)
And attacking the people of Donbass (on pic: Ukraine army loading heavy mortars to fire at civilian populated areas of Donetsk)
In their utter stupidity, ukro-nazis are doing everything to expedite the end. Perhaps that’s a good idea, after all. In Ukraine’s case the horrible end may be better than an endless horror.
But Russia has to tread softly, carefully calculating the risks. Incidentally, EU is in the same boat in this regard. Ukraine’s complete implosion threatens both.
One of the problems is that millions of Ukrainians will flood uncontrollably into Russia (and EU). Another problem, Ukraine may become a danger to others due to 4 major nuclear power plants on its territory. And problem number three: Ukraine’s destroyed economy has to be rebuilt, but no one wants to take responsibility. Technically, those who destroyed it should be paying for reconstruction, namely Ukraine oligarchs, Soros, US, Canada, Germany, Poland and EU in general. I’d also make Nuland, Obama, Biden and their cronies pay up personally.
But in reality, as I predicted in 2014, only Russia cares what happens to Ukraine and only Russia is capable and willing to help rebuild Ukraine’s economy.
Although, per my other prediction, Putin is smart enough to make the West chip in when the time comes.
Russia is now attempting to delay this unpleasant moment of ultimate destruction of her sister-nation, suffering from an especially destructive case of temporary insanity. However, it is unavoidable. Sooner or later it’ll happen. What we have to remember is that it is darkest before the dawn. But dawn will come.

Video: Антиправительственный митинг на Майдане в Киеве – Mass anti-government rally on Kiev Maidan to mark the anniversary of the 2014 Maidan coup.
Notice how quiet, and even docile, this protest is. Compare that to the bloody and destructive Maidan coup of February 2014. What a stark difference! This difference is in fact much deeper than seems on the surface. Life of an ordinary citizen has become 4-5 times worse since Feb. 2014. Grivna fell through the floor, economy is devastated, there is a brutal civil war in the country and Ukraine completely lost its sovereignty. And yet, a much better and stable situation in 2014 resulted in violent coup d’etat with fascist overtones, while today, the same armed ukro-fascists are tip-toeing around the Maidan they once easily occupied as their rightful domain.
Once the goals of the Transatlantic bosses were achieved, these ukro-nazis and radicals cleared the Maidan, despite their promise to never leave until their demands were met. Their demands, such as freeing the country of oligarchs, were just forgotten. Their slogan ‘remember foreigner, Ukrainian is the boss here,’ never materialized. Ukraine in 2016 is more dependent on foreign powers than it ever was, to the point of Joe Biden presiding over Kiev government sessions and foreigners occupying key ministers’ posts.
Today, Ukraine is a country under complete foreign occupation. And yet, these heavily armed ukro-nazi battalions do not begin a new Maidan.
I did predict it wouldn’t go beyond simple protests in ESR2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE, which was released two days ago, on 2/18/2016. This was easy to guess: this time around there is no Victoria Nuland with her cookies laced with hallucinogenic drugs in order to subvert Ukraine. This time there is no US, Merkel’s, Poland’s or EU’s support behind these protests. All these entities want to keep Poroshenko, and even Yatsenyuk, with his almost ZERO % rating, in power for as long as possible. And if there is no Western support behind mayhem — the mayhem won’t happen.
But the frustration and violent energy of these poor and not very bright suckers can be directed where the puppeteers want it. They will be allowed to vent their frustration at the fact that Ukraine has no chance of joining EU despite EU and US promises; they will be given the opportunity to rave and pillage over the undeniable fact that their life is getting worse. But their rage will be directed where it’s profitable for their invisible handlers.
Those who are the most rebellious and violent, will be sent to Donbass, Kherson or Odessa, where they will kill, rape and terrorize innocent civilians. Others will go to Zakarpatie, where they will terrorize Russian truck drivers attempting to deliver goods to the EU: details of what’s going on in ESR2.
All this will be done deliberately so the venting occurs far and away from Kiev, while keeping US stooge Poroshenko safe. It’s so much better if they terrorize other citizens of Ukraine, whose only crime is that they speak Russian!
The end of the day neared, the second anniversary of the 2014 violent Kiev Maidan was almost over, and yet, ukro-nazis have been unable to burn down or demolish anything… They were forbidden to riot against sanctified by the big boss Joe Biden ‘Ukraine leaders’ Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk.
In all honesty, Yatsenyuk has already been designated as a scape goat. He isn’t that stupid and he knows that if he stays, eventually he would have to pay for his crimes when the situation changes. Therefore, he’s been dreaming of being set free from his position of Ukraine’s PM and of escaping to Canada, whose citizenship he was granted last year — for his ‘great achievements in the cause of progress and democracy,’ no doubt. In reality, Canadian citizenship and the stolen billion are Yatsenyuk’s payment for the job well done accomplishing the demolition of Ukraine and turning it into anti-Russia.
Yatsenyuk can’t wait for his bosses to let him go and to begin enjoying the billion of dollars he stole during his two years in power.
But the Kiev junta isn’t going away and it will hang on to power. This Kiev junta has good teachers, coached on how to deal with protests by Americans, who have had a lot of practice at home (see link below re. how Americans train Ukrainians to be killing machines).
Based on the book by former Ukraine PM Nikolay Azarov, in 2014 Yanukovich was directly threatened by the US through Victoria Nuland and US ambassador. He was warned that if he allowed his police or army to respond to violent Maidan protesters, and if he so much as attempted to restore order, violent coup d’etat would be executed and he would be finished. Yanukovich chickened out, and lost everything anyway. I talk about what went on behind the scenes back then in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE, in the part entitled: “A story of one betrayal.”
Unlike Yanukovich in 2014, Poroshenko wouldn’t hesitate to give order to shoot, should protests turn violent. Why? Because he has complete and total support of the US.
Of course, another thing that goes through the confused minds of these simpletons strolling today on Maidan is the fact that they themselves brought to power this junta (or at least they think they did). If they rebel against it, aren’t they admitting they were wrong in 2014? Their pride won’t let them do that.
Dissatisfied by the lack of targets to punch or destroy without recourse, they were directed by puppeteers to vent their frustration against Russian banks.
Attacks on two Russian banks: pogrom of Alpha Bank and attempted attack of Sberbank. Video links:
Радикалы закидали камнями здание Сбербанка в Киеве – Radicals attack with rocks the building of Sberbank in Kiev. They chant: ‘Ukraine above all!’ This is a direct translation of the Nazi Germany’s fascist slogan: “Deutschland uber alles.” The associations should be clear.
It’s certainly easy to understand them protesting against Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and the junta, which they themselves brought to power via their violent 2014 Maidan. But it seems one needs a psychiatrist to explain why they have attacked the Kiev branches of Sberbank and Alfa Bank, disregarding the office of the president, the many government buildings, and the Rada.
Oh, wait! I actually did explain that already in my prior articles and the reloaded ESR2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE. I call this syndrome: ‘All the smart ones left and turned off the lights.’ I also define today’s Ukraine as Idiocracy+, as discussed in : Ukraine Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar.
