    To be fair that prick is pro west (you can tell by the flags behind him in his photo) and other politicians in the country seem to be distancing themselves from his claims and views.

    As one Russian official said in response, that the west will never be satisfied with Serbia just imposing sanctions on Russia... they will demand more and still not be happy with Serbia... not matter what they give.

    Serbian minister rebuked over Russia comments
    His own party disavowed Rade Basta after he urged Belgrade to sanction Moscow

    https://www.rt.com/news/572929-serbia-basta-russia-sanctions/

    “Unlike the US, Russia has always respected Serbia and its people. Nor is this only about historical truths, but about an obvious fact: with the introduction of sanctions against Russia, the US pressure on Serbia will not end, but only increase,” said Zakharova.

    Bloomberg:
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-03-12/india-to-ensure-no-breach-on-russia-oil-purchase-sanctions


    Bloomberg reported on Sunday that India will not breach Western sanctions on price over oil imports. India has significantly increased oil imports from Russia since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine.






    Reuters couple of days later...:

    https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/india-not-obligated-to-buy-russian-oil-below-western-price-cap-indian-oil-ministry-source

    India not obligated to buy Russian oil below Western price cap - Indian oil ministry source


    NEW DELHI, March 14 (Reuters) - India is not obligated to buy Russian oil at rates below the price cap imposed by the Group of Seven (G7) and other Western nations, an Indian oil ministry source told Reuters on Tuesday.

    India has not signed any agreement with the Western powers to impose a price cap on Russian oil, added the source, who could not be named due to the confidential nature of the matter.

    No evidence of price cap violations, says US official

    https://lloydslist.maritimeintelligence.informa.com/LL1144307/No-evidence-of-price-cap-violations-says-US-official

    About three-quarters of Russian oil trades occur without Western facilitators and outside the price cap, says Ben Harris

    That's interesting one, no violation because no western services are used. So it didnt say about actual price right? Or I am wrong?

    BTW Russia is to cut oil export by...25%...

    They can claim there are no violations because they don't have access to shipping and insurance information because the shipping and insurance is not being done by western companies so they don't know that their sham policy is not working... because if they did then they would realise they are still buyng Russian energy, but they are buying it from third parties like China and India and the Middle East countries that could not spare the energy supplies the west needs if they weren't allowed to buy from Russia.

    A head in the sand attitude is about as reasonable as the west can be when it comes to compliance with their own stupidity.

    so in fact he was right - no violations observed. Violation = if oil above price cap when using western services. Logically no services no violation Very Happy

    Nabiullina commented on the search for Russian reserves abroad


    A Bloomberg correspondent during a press conference noted, citing foreign regulators, that they could not find the $300 billion in Russian reserves that fell under sanctions. According to her, regulators say they have found much less and the numbers are very small. The journalist asked if it could be that Russia does not have so many arrested reserves and the Central Bank somehow hid everything.

    "As for the reserves, I can't help here," Nabiullina responded. lol1 lol1 lol1 :

    NetEase: several news about the Russian economy have left the West in confusion

    There have been some recent news reports about the Russian economy, and none of them have pleased the collective West. This was written by the authors of the Chinese edition of NetEase. Especially for its readers, PolitRussia presents an exclusive retelling of the publication.

    Chinese experts noted that the news in question is worth paying close attention to. Firstly, it became known that Russia's GDP in 2022 decreased by only 2.1% and amounted to 151,455.6 billion rubles. Western experts predicted a much greater fall in Russia's GDP. At the same time, already in the second quarter of 2023, Russia will see an increase in this indicator.

    The second news concerns inflation. It is expected that in March this year the inflation rate in Russia will be about 4%, while in the European Union prices are expected to rise in the range of 6 to 15% (depending on the country).

    Finally, the third news that came from Russia: the foreign trade turnover of the Russian Federation in 2022 increased by 8.1%, to 850 billion dollars. At the same time, exports grew by 19.9%, while imports fell by 11.7%.

    Chinese analysts recalled that the collective West, led by the United States, intended to break Russia through sanctions, but failed to do so. Inflation in Russia is not very high, and GDP fell slightly. And all these indicators are already returning to normal. The trade turnover did not suffer either, although the opponents of the Russian Federation did everything to deprive it of income from trade, even disconnected the country from the SWIFT international banking system.

    “The West wanted to tear Russia to death with its “magic skills”, but Russia is still in good shape, and foreign trade and other directions are still growing, despite the pressure. This is shameful for the West!” - experts from China comment on the situation.

    The US and its partners are losing credibility in the world. If earlier the international community experienced a certain fear of the West and the measures that it might apply, now it is clear that American and European sanctions are far from being as effective as they seemed. Many people who believed in the invincibility of the Western machine are now disappointed.

    At this time, developing countries are gaining strength. They are not going to succumb to US provocations and do not intend to stop trade with Russia. Moreover, they understand that the Russian Federation is fighting against American hegemony and are ready to support it in this, since they are also interested in building a multipolar world.

    The core strength of western hegemony was that there was no real alternative development model or development path to follow that didn't involve working with the colonial white west.

    The multipolar model means they can work with white Russia but also China and India and Brazil and South Africa and none of those countries will tell you which other countries you are allowed to trade with... you could even trade with western countries if you want... they don't care... but the obvious problem of those western countries will demand you stop dealing with those BRICS countries if you want to trade with them.

    That can't last very long if the west wants to continue doing business with the rest of the world of course because I doubt the rest of the world could survive cutting off BRICS the way the west is pretending to do... (they try to cut off Russia and China a little bit at a time, but with Brazil and India they are trying to buy or threaten or woo into changing sides (or regime change more insidious political methods... attract their young people with US culture and entertainment etc.)

    Sweden’s Alecta Sold First Republic Stake at $727 Million Loss
    2023-03-21 12:46:23.591 GMT


    By Anton Wilen and Rafaela Lindeberg
    (Bloomberg) -- Sweden’s biggest pension fund, Alecta, sold
    all of its shares in struggling US lender First Republic Bank at
    a loss of 7.5 billion kronor ($728 million), according to Chief
    Executive Officer Magnus Billing.
    “The uncertainty about the bank’s future was too great,
    partly due to the fact that the lender was downgraded to junk
    status,” Billing said in emailed comments, after Bloomberg News
    obtained a copy of a written response by Alecta to the Swedish
    Financial Supervisory Authority.
    In the document, Alecta said its total invested capital in
    First Republic stood at 9.7 billion kronor “before a sale on
    March 15.” The Swedish fund had been buying First Republic
    shares since 2019, making it the bank’s fifth biggest
    shareholder.
    The financial watchdog had demanded an explanation as to
    how and why a pension company managing the money of 2.6 million
    Swedes had invested about 21.8 billion kronor of its fund in
    three niche US banks tied to the collapse of Silicon Valley
    Bank.

    The fund last week said it expects to completely write off
    its investments in SVB and Signature Bank — at a cost of $1.1
    billion — and added that there’s a risk its investment in First
    Republic “will also be completely lost.”
    The scale of the losses at Alecta sparked an outcry in
    Sweden and prompted an internal investigation at the Stockholm-
    based pension fund, as well a summons from the FSA. Both the
    country’s government and central bank said they are monitoring
    the situation closely but played down the risk of a disruption
    to financial stability.
    With 1.2 trillion kronor of assets under management, Alecta
    said its US bank losses won’t impact its solvency ratio, which
    totaled 218% at the end of 2022.

    Peskov agreed with Medvedev, who advocated pirated copies on the Internet

    https://tass.ru/politika/17368837

    The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation also said that he was downloaded films from torrents.
    MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that he agrees with the opinion of the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, who advocated the distribution of pirated copies of Western intellectual products on the Internet.

    Earlier, Medvedev called for such a step, which should cause maximum damage to Western companies and lead them to bankruptcy.


    "I agree with Dmitry Anatolyevich. We are dealing with pirates - [these are] those who robbed us, those who seized our assets, stole our assets / <...> The phrase "pirated content" should be perceived under a different sauce" , Peskov told reporters. When asked if he himself uses torrents, Peskov said that he did not know how to do this, but films were downloaded to him from torrents.

    Putin pointed out the "huge mistake" of the United States, by Anton Antonov for VZGLYAD. 03.25.2023.

    Putin called the decision of the United States to limit settlements in dollars a "huge mistake.

    The United States, by limiting the use of the dollar, "saw the branch on which they sit," said Russian head of state Vladimir Putin.

    Putin, in an interview with journalist Pavel Zarubin, said that the United States, guided by "momentary opportunistic" political goals, is "shooting itself in the foot," TASS reports with reference to the Russia-24 channel.

    The President refuted US allegations about Russia's alleged encroachment on the dollar. He noted that the United States itself prevents Russia from using the American currency, so it was necessary to switch to settlements in other currencies, in particular, to use the yuan.

    “Do you know that oil-producing countries in the Middle East have said that they also want to settle in yuan? We will gradually expand this, expand (the use of) those currencies that are reliable,” he said.

    According to him, after the freezing of Russian gold and foreign exchange reserves, the world “concluded” that the United States is an unreliable partner. Putin acknowledged that the dollar retains a number of advantages while other currencies have limitations, but "each country is interested in strengthening its national currency." The decision of the United States to limit settlements in dollars "in relation to those countries that for some reason they do not like," Putin called "a huge mistake."

    Recall, it was pointed out that after the West imposed sanctions against Russia and froze assets worth $300 billion, China and other countries were afraid that any of them could fall under Washington's sanctions next time.

    Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, speaking with the government's report for 2022, said that it is planned to continue increasing settlements in national currencies within the EAEU. Putin stated the need to further encourage the practice of mutual settlements between Russia and China in national currencies.

    It's a suicidal move. Among other things, this wigged Yellen witch is getting increasingly delusional.

    The effect of anti-Russian sanctions on the EU on the example of the revenue of gas suppliers in the EU in 2021 and 2022 It can be seen that the EU as a whole “overpaid” $270 billion.

    China’s trade surplus hit an all-time high of $877.6 billion, 30% above 2021. Russia hit their own record of $333.4 billion, a full 70% above 2021, moving them up to second place. Germany, which had been in second place in 2021, had a massive drop, now at seventh.

    Otherwise, Saudi Arabia ranked third, followed by Norway, a beneficiary of the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines. One country, Nigeria, moved from a deficit to a surplus. The number of major countries that had a surplus dropped from 32 in 2021 to 26 in 2022.

    Hahahaha... John.... the world bank is trying to say what with that chart?

    Does it want BRICS countries to think that they will sit on top of the Chinese economy and China is just there to fuel their own growth so their growth will be boosted on top of Chinas growth?

    For example in 2020, that chart shows Chinas GDP as the lowest of the group at about 15,000, with India slightly more and Brazil slightly ahead of India and Russia ahead of them all with South Africa on top with about 21,000, and projections that by 2027 that China will reach just over 25,000, while all the other founder members of BRICS will be over 30,000 by that time... wonder which arsehole they pulled those numbers from because I would say the reverse would be reality with South Africa probably not the best, then perhaps Brazil and then India and then Russia but with China the best performer in terms of economics... even if they are all improving and developing and getting better... the reverse trend of the west.

    If you look at that chart as an area chart then they make it look like China gets the bulk of the increase and the results of the other countries are just sitting on top of Chinas results, but in actual fact as shown above, Russias results have increased very well too, and I suspect it will be through BRICS that India has their only chance of economic development... the west has stymied their growth the last few hundred years and I don't see that changing.

    Western investment accidentally created China as an economic and production power and they will be very careful not to make that same mistake with India while trying to use India as a weapon against both Russia and China...
