On the Activities of Foreign Banks in Russia

20.07.2022

One of the main targets of the Western sanctions war against Russia has become the banks. Particularly severe sanctions have been imposed on Russian banks that are on Washington's SDN (Specially Designated Nationals) list. This is a blacklist of persons and organizations with whom US citizens and permanent residents are prohibited from doing business. The list is maintained by OFAC, the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury Department. The inclusion of a bank on the SDN list, among other punitive measures, includes the freezing of its assets in the US.

By engaging in direct confrontation with the West during the SMO, even though the West itself participates through its Ukrainian proxy structure, which cannot be called a 'country', Russia is forced to defend its sovereignty on all levels. In terms of military, economic and formal policy, this is quite obvious, but the West is much more than a political-military-economic structure: it is a civilization with a fundamental program code. Everything else is derived from this code: weapons, economy, politics, culture, education, science, media, etc. Russia is now forced to confront the whole spectrum and, in general, the Western code itself.

Klaus Schwab, passionate for Ukraine, essentially configured the World Economic Forum (WEF) to showcase Zelensky and to leverage the argument that Russia should be kicked out of the civilised world. Schwab’s target was the assembled crème de la crème of the world’s business leaders assembled there. Zelensky pitched big: “We want more sanctions and more weapons”; “All trade with the aggressor should be stopped”; “All foreign business should leave Russia so that your brands are not associated with war crimes”, he said. Sanctions must be all encompassing; values must matter.
