Although the article appears in the Britsh Independent, giving it an air of crdibility, all that it reports are the opinions of Andrej Illarionov, a
Russian exile who resigned his position as presidential representative to the G8 in 2005 stating...
This year Russia has become a different
country. It is no longer a democratic country. It is no longer a free country.
Illarionov now works for the CATO Institute in America, and so I perceive this as more Western fearmongering to frighten investors away from Russia.
Putin no more wants Finland than I want to claim state benefits...and I don't. If he was ever going to invade any country, he would have invaded the
Ukraine, but he never wanted to invade the Ukraine, that was just the same kind of Western fearmongering to paint Russia and Putin as a bogeyman to
It is America that is quaking, because it knows that the financial decisions Putin is making may have catastrophic effects on the American economy,
and to some degree, other Western economies. The Ukraine crisis gave the West an opportunity to apply the brakes to what Putin was wanting to do,
which is to dump the petrodollar and American dollar, something the BRICS countries have been proposing for a few years now. That plan is in the
process of being realised.
