    How well known was Putin when Yeltsin picked him as his successor... which was possibly the only thing Yeltsin did right in my opinion.

    I doubt Yeltsin was making any decisions after March of 1999. There was a soft coup in the wake of the gang rape of Serbia by NATO.
    The year 1999 also marked the full on dropping of monetarist voodoo economics.

    Thank God for the Soviet Army and the KGB. They saved Russia by installing Putin. But Putin was not just a sock puppet. He
    was already worming his way up the system from the St. Petersburg level and managed to con Boris Berezovsky into thinking he
    was his stooge. Putin subsequently cleaned house in Russia and removed the gangster oligarchs from power by the end of
    his first term. Starting with his second term Russia has been undergoing a fantastic revival.

    Ukraine is what would have become of Russia if the gangster oligarchs continued to control the federal government. We would
    not be talking about Avangard but about Russia's partition.

    Oligarch ruling was at best about 12 years. Putin was putting them in place not long after he got in. Oligarches exist and will always exist so long as money exists. There will be those who will find ways to make lots of money by nickel and diming people but it appears that what Putin has put in place, what most governors and government officials talk about now and promise and demand, shows that the Oligarch ruling is more or less done. Only oligarches that will have any kind of power are those who follow the same mentality.

    And good. No one should be transiting anything through Ukraine.

    I'd be more careful. Putin is THE master in playing weak cards he got in the beginning for sure. As i can see he is trying to find way for mutually beneficial existence with oligarchs then forcing them.

    Trutnev: a number of indicators for the DFO on national projects violate Putin’s orders

    VLADIVOSTOK, March 21 - RIA News. A number of indicators set by federal ministries and departments for the implementation of national projects in the Far East are below the average for Russia, which violates the instructions of President Vladimir Putin, the presidential envoy to the region Yury Trutnev said at a meeting of the Far Eastern Federal Council on Thursday.
    According to him, today at the meeting will discuss the implementation of the national projects "Housing", "Education", "Health".

    "You remember that the figures calculated by the region and lowered by the ministries differ significantly. We will discuss this today, we will understand. But analyzing the work, it must be said that for a number of indicators the targets set by federal ministries and departments below the national average are a direct violation instructions from the president, where it is stated that all indicators should be higher than the average for Russia, "said Trutnev.
    According to him, representatives of departments are also invited to the meeting.

    “The presidential commission must either be fulfilled or the place made available for people who are able to fulfill,” the plenipotentiary added.
    The national program was commissioned by the president of Russia. The document should combine national projects and state programs, long-term sectoral plans of departments and infrastructure companies, as well as development strategies for all regions of the FEFD. The program should be ready by September 1.

    "Just business: British & US investors gobble up Russian government bonds."

    "Most Russian state-issued bonds were purchased by investors from Britain, the US and the European Union, according to Andrey Solovyev, global head of debt and capital markets at VTB Capital which ran the placement."




    Why is Russia letting them do this? Why don't Russia give their bonds to friendly countries?

    One would suppose that those investors want their money back. So they are not interested in destroying Russia. These investments
    are not the same thing as Russia borrowing from NATO or investing in NATO. This way Russia undermines the foaming at the mouth
    agenda of western elites. I say the gain outweighs the risk.

    Investment is not charity... nobody is investing in Russia because they want to help Russia, they want Russias work with their seed money to grow into more money so they get a cut and earn more money from their investment.

    They are basically money lenders that will help as long as in the end they make money out of your ideas or work.

    If the investment is going to bring enormous rewards... invest Russian government funds so the Russian people get the benefit in both sides of the agreement.

    Of course there are no guarantees and sometimes the return is less than you would get from just putting it in the bank...

    China and India can easily afford those bonds and they don't want stuff on the cheap, they always pay Russia for what they buy.

    On one side they demonize Russia and on the other hand they buy Russian bonds(it is money after all they are after), hopefully they will stop that from now.

    Western sanctions boost Russia’s economy - security chief

    MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Outside pressure in the form of sanctions has become an incentive to resolve various issues of Russia’s economy, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated in an interview with the Izvestiya daily.

    He noted that through introducing sanctions against Russia, "the West aims to destabilize Russia’s economy and to create social and political tensions in society."

    "But during the difficult times, Russians have always stuck together and mobilized their resources in order to ensure the country’s sovereignty. This is what is happening now - the outside pressure has become an incentive to resolve many problems in Russia’s economy," he said.

    "Before the sanctions, it seemed that we would never be able to feed ourselves and that we are doomed to be dependent on Western import. However, right now, Russia’s food sovereignty in crucial sectors has practically been achieved, and in some areas, Russia has become the leading exporter," Patrushev noted.

    Those who apply the sanctions "can see that they (the sanctions - TASS) are ineffective and often achieve the opposite goal," the Russian security chief concluded.

    There is a hard limit to how much you can suppress gold prices, everything they do is temporary at best

    Speaking of gold, here is chart or Russian gold reserves since 2016:
