Russian-Ukrainian news site describes transfer of Ukrainian gold to U.S.

this is link to an article detailing a foreign language source which says that 40 tons of gold was just shipped from Ukraine to the US...were other countries gold just seems to get swallowed up...

there is a google translation posted at the link

Id like to put the request out for a yay or nay because gold is always a good reason to do things, and it usually trumps politics, and religious reasons for doing things...

hope this is not posted and it is in the right forum
imho, its not quite news yet till verified

The Russian-language and pro-Russian Internet news organization, Iskra ("Spark") News in Zaporozhye, eastern Ukraine, which perhaps has taken its name from the early socialist newspaper founded by Lenin --

-- reported Friday that Ukraine's gold reserves had been hastily airlifted to the United States from Borispol Airport just east of Kiev.

A Google-assisted translation is appended.

GATA tonight asked the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the U.S. State Department to disclose whether the United States has taken custody of Ukraine's gold reserves. A publicist for the New York Fed immediately acknowledged the inquiry and said he would look into the issue right away. We'll keep you posted.

A source in the Ukrainian government confirmed that the transfer of the gold reserves of Ukraine to the United States was ordered by the acting PM Arseny Yatsenyuk.

still only one source ( same link reference as above post references )
hopefully time will tell

I was thinking of posting about this but tied up doing "Work"!

I saw a couple of reports early this morning about this alleged transfer (theft) of gold. Probably a down-payment by the new "government" headed up by their offshore based central bankster leader.

Welcome to Western freedom, democracy and theft by the bankers is all I'd say to the people of Ukraine.

I also keep wondering what happened to the gold reserves of Libya, over 100 tonnes of the stuff, during and after the take-down by the West. I mean, they sure as hell would have secured that and moved it before the "Rebels" got anywhere near it. So where is it now then? Sitting in someones bank vault for safe keeping I expect, ready to be handed back as soon as Libya stabilises, probably...... maybe.....

What's that worth? Half a billion? Sounds like the amount we are planning on "loaning" them right? Perhaps we decided ahead of time they were going to default on the loan?

Seems Legit

More than likely it was a large transaction from private vaults all over Europe moving gold out of Ukraine, makes sense, China buys lots of Gold these days, some very smart private individuals have probably just made a great deal of money by really sound business practice, pretty shrewd, hats of to them. Guess thats why they wage shadow wars.

If I had half a billion in gold I'd probably retain a medium sized army of ninjas from my glass corporate super fortress, that chances are is actualy just a giant reinforced concrete structure to maintain and hide a hundred million dollar fibre optic hyper network. All just to protect my interests of course, nothing untoward at all, lol.

This is what small nations do in case they are over ran. Move it somewhere safe and hope you get it back, it also lessens the chance that Putin will come in just for their gold. The scary part is that it could be a down payment for Mercs and weapons to take back Crimea or better a full on NATO intervention.

I think Putin will run if NATO starts a massive movement but Obama is to chicken and to much of a traitor for that, unless Poland, Turkey and some others demand it. Soon as NATO demand's that Russia stops playing their games in Crimea then Russia will have no choice but to back down or face a huge war that he knows he cant win. Poland and Turkey would kick him in the nuts and cut off all his troops in the area very fast. Russia does not have the air power it would take to stop the much larger NATO forces in the area.

This Russian invasion would not be happening if Ukraine had not given up its Nukes. Nukes make peace possible, we need more not less. Guess we can just divert this shipment to Germany ehh? Honestly Germany should have donated its gold to the US for having saved it and the rest of Europe from Hitler. Without America there would always be a Hilter/Putin out there. Putin is much like Hitler but not crazy and has a different agenda. Let America have the gold so we can continue to keep a Rabid world leader from trying to take over everything ala Hitler/Putin.

There will always be a superpower and world leader nation. As flawed as America is it is better than a lot of alternatives to it.

there is something to what you say
though they may have a little trouble getting the gold back....

here is what happens when you give up your nukes...and then your gold
ny fed refuses to be audited for germany's gold

The German government has been storing about half of its gold supply with the US FED, apparently in the NYC FED vaults. Germany decided to bring home all its gold, but the FED has said that isn’t possible to do, and it would need until 2020 to be able to accomplish the transfer.

The German government then asked to visit the FED vaults to inventory the gold and determine its actual existence, but the FED refused to permit Germany to examine its own gold. The reasons given were “security” and “no room for visitors”. And nothing else.

Germany did finally send some staff to the FED, and they were permitted only into the vault’s anteroom where they were shown 5 or 6 gold bars as representative of their holdings, and were permitted nothing else.

They apparently came a second time, and the FED did open only one of 9 rooms and let the Germans look at the stack of gold, but were not permitted to either enter or touch. And they returned home.

Nobody wants to admit it openly. The German Gold Reserves in the United States are gone, used for financing the United States war chest and bet for “Global Full Spectrum Dominance”. So why is even the German Federal Bank trying to avoid further speculation by referring to a non-existent “full transparency” ? The answer is quite simple. Nobody wants the current backwardation of the gold market to turn into a permanent backwardation of the gold market. The consequence would be the inevitable collapse of global trade and civilization as we know it.

russia was going to give ukraine money the us spent thier wad on financing the revolution
because i am told the ukraine refused the eu

Germany isn't stupid or a walk over, it holds the keys in the EU and hasn't sided against Russia. Chances are Germany is working on getting their gold back, by hook or by crook.

On the ''here let me hold that for you whilst we make a mess of your country for you, oh you want it back, oh you asked me to hold something, oh wait, there are terms, oh you want to see your gold, how about you do us a few favours first...'' was that their aim, the US perhaps making favours from Ukraine, like using their land which borders Russia etc.

i was thinking along the same lines. the money germany has invested in russia is less then the stolen gold
so germany is in a tight one.
i did read that many do not agree with Merkle's views on the ukraine.

What if the USA is robbing Peter to pay Paul?

1. Germany asks for gold back
2. USA only gives Germany 5 tons
3. USA acquires Ukraine's gold for "safe keeping"
4. USA uses Ukrainian gold to pay Germany a little bit more of what they are asking.

Either that or the USA is on a gold hoarding mission. Like Libya. A large part of Libya was about gold.

So the deeper question is - Why?
