lol well that's embarrassing hehehe, but I meant some new electronic funds transfer system or something like that. I just perused the article, and thought I got the gist of it. I didn't mean the company was new.

There is a new Electronic Bank system called SWIFT, that apparently all the banks are moving to,
SWIFT turned 40 years old in 2013

You might be meaning the Chinese led start up competitor for 'the world bank'
Increased banking traffic means Russia now has a seat on the board of the SWIFT global interbank communications system. The seat comes at a time of increased pressure for Russia to be removed from the organization because of sanctions. It is the first time Russia has had a seat on the 25-member board of directors of the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) since it joined in 1989. Every three years the organization reconfigures the shares among the countries participating. Each country receives a number of shares in proportion to the traffic in the system. The reallocation has led to changes in the structure of the board. “By the end of 2014 the SWIFT traffic growth in Russia allowed us to reach thirteenth place in the world, so Russia has increased its stake to a level that allows it to nominate a candidate to the Board of Directors”, the executive director of the Russian National SWIFT Association Roman Chernov told RBC.
If Vladimir Putin is remotely capable of laughter (the jury is out on that one…) then he’s probably doing so right now. Russia is once again Arch-Enemy of the United States. It’s like living through a really bad James Bond movie, complete with cartoonish villains.
And for the last several months, the US government has been doing everything it can to torpedo the Russian economy, as well as Vladimir Putin’s standing within his own country.
The economic nuclear option is to kick Russia out of the international banking system. And the US government has been vociferously pushing for this.
Specifically, the US government wants to kick Russia out of SWIFT, short for the Society of Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications.

I'm going to throw this in here take it for what it is:
I say they are moving the government to a more secure location.
I think this is one of the possibilities or the bank$ters did manage to
The other is they are relocating to Yamantau as I said in my prior post.
