Russia-China Alternative Money Transfer System


Oct 14, 2014

Russia and China, the two strategic Eurasian nations, are moving clearly to ultimately break free of the stranglehold of the Dollar System. On September 10 high-level talks took place between the two countries discussing establishment of an interbank money clearing system independent of the US-controlled SWIFT payments system. If enacted it would represent a major step in being able to defend their economies from Washington’s newly-developed weapon of financial warfare against a country that does not behave just as certain powerful circles want.
On September 10, Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov met in Beijing with his Chinese counterparts to discuss setting up a system of interbank international transaction clearing that would replace or could, in event of increased US and EU sanctions, replace the SWIFT interbank payment mechanism. According to Shuvalov after his talks in Beijing he stated to the press, “Yes, we have discussed and we have approved this idea.”

Russia To Dump SWIFT Within a Few Months


Nov 12, 2014

Russia intends to have its own international inter-bank system up and running by May 2015. The Central of Russia says it needs to speed up preparations for its version of SWIFT in case of possible ”challenges” from the West.
"Given the challenges, Bank of Russia is creating its own system for transmitting financial messaging... It’s time to hurry up, so in the next few months we will have certain work done. The entire project for transmitting financial messages will be completed in May 2015," said Ramilya Kanafina, deputy head of the national payment system department at the Central Bank of Russia (CBR).


China Has Thrown Its Weight Behind Russia


Nov 18, 2014

  • Along with their other partners the China-Russia camp is now more significant than the US-EU block
  • The West continues to cling to increasingly absurd illusions of global American hegemony
The recent two summits, APEC and G20, have ended up as a disaster for the US and its allies (see herehere and here) while Russia, China and the rest of the BRICS are clearly in control of the situation.  
Yet there are still those who believe the western corporate media, which wants to portray Putin and Russia as "weak".
In our age of virtual reality perceptions, such perceptions are clearly molded by exposure to the western corporate media whose brainwashing skills are nothing short of amazing.
But let's look at the facts...
What Obama and his advisors have failed to realize is this: Russia and China (backed by the BRICSSCOCSTOEEU) are far more powerful than the US/EU block in political, economic and military terms.
As for western leaders, they are simply delusional and they have manifestly fallen into the old trap of believing their own propaganda. 
The most ridiculous moment of last week's summit came when Obama, after having failed to achieve any of his objectives against Russia or China, made a speech where he seriously spoke of the importance of "American leadership". It was comical to the point of being embarrassing. On Russian TV the commentators were literally laughing when reporting this.
Putin's message is blunt and clear: Western leaders are driving their Empire into a wall. 
The Euro-Atlantic Empire has truly become an "Empire of Illusions" (to use Chris Hedges expression) where facts matter much less than spin, where the normal way to cope with a challenge is to deny its existence, were self-deception is a way of life.
The writing is on the wall. It has been there for a long while.
The problem is that nobody wants to read it.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About SWIFT and Russia (But were afraid to ask!)


Nov 19, 2014

Russia today announced that it plans to launch a new payments system so that it will no longer need to use the payments system SWIFT. From RT:
Russia intends to have its own international inter-bank system up and running by May 2015. The Central of Russia says it needs to speed up preparations for its version of SWIFT in case of possible ”challenges” from the West.
“Given the challenges, Bank of Russia is creating its own system for transmitting financial messaging… It’s time to hurry up, so in the next few months we will have certain work done. The entire project for transmitting financial messages will be completed in May 2015,” said Ramilya Kanafina, deputy head of the national payment system department at the Central Bank of Russia (CBR).
Calls not to use the SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) system in Russian banks began to grow as relations between Russia and the West deteriorated over sanctions. So far, SWIFT says despite pressure from some Western countries to join the anti-Russian sanctions, it has no intention of doing so…
SWIFT, is currently one of Russia’s main connections to the international banking system, and if turned off, could hurt the Russian economy, in the short-term. Globally it transmits orders for transactions worth more than $6 trillion, and involves more than 10,000 financial institutions in 210 countries. According to SWIFT’s statute, the system has national groups of members and users in each country. In Russia it’s ROSSWIFT – the second biggest worldwide SWIFT association after the US.

Russia Testing De-Dollarization Payment System


Dec 11, 2014

The pilot program includes 8 banks, launches December 15

Having announced its intention to create an alternative to the SWIFT payment system (followingcalls from Western politicians for SWIFT to cut off Russia - which the 'independent' firm rapidly denied), Russia recently said it would be ready in May.
However, it seems the rapid drop in the Ruble (and the Yuan in recent days) has escalated the need for this de-dollarized payment system and, as RT reports, Russia’s Rossiya and SMP banks, which fell under Western sanctions, are among the eight lenders that will start testing the country’s new national payment system on December 15.

Russia Is Unfazed by Falling Oil Prices

  • Budget was based on higher oil prices, but production is still profitable and expanding
  • Extraction companies' expenses are in cheap rubles so their bottom line is the same

Russia's "SWIFT" - Big Problems for the West


Dec 16, 2014

The international financial system is based on the U.S. dollar. The greenback is both the world’s “reserve currency” — the one everyone wants to hold when things go bad — and the principal means of exchange. The vast majority of transactions between companies, countries and people are denominated in dollars.

But even though SWIFT is based in Belgium, and subject to EU law, the U.S. government claims legal authority over all SWIFT transactions denominated in U.S. dollars — even if those dollars never enter a U.S. bank account — because they are ultimately “backstopped” by the Federal Reserve.

A few weeks ago, Russia announced its intention to launch an alternative to SWIFT by May 2015. Russia’s new interbank system would dominate transactions in rubles, with conversion to and from U.S. dollars at either end.
