The Shocking Reason Putin Isn't Worried About The $50 Billion Yukos Ruling

But perhaps this explains why Putin is not coming out swinging, as The FT concludes,

One person close to Mr Putin said the Yukos ruling was insignificant in light of the bigger geopolitical stand-off over Ukraine.

"There is a war coming in Europe,” he said. “Do you really think this matters?”


I'm still looking into this Yukos Ruling. But the way events have been going, I don't think it's impossible.

Quote:(Reuters) - An international arbitration court ruled on Monday that Russia must pay $50 billion (£29.44 billion) for expropriating the assets of Yukos, the former oil giant whose ex-owner Mikhail Khodorkovsky fell foul of the Kremlin. Finding that Russian authorities had subjected Yukos to politically-motivated attacks, the panel made an award to a group of former Yukos shareholders that equates to more than half the entire fund Moscow has set aside to cover budget holes.

Putin predicts war eh? To some degree, it's already on financially. Sanctions are an act of war. Cherished by idiots too damn dumb to come to the table and negotiate.

I expect several wars to break out. That's how the elite get rid of economic bubbles.

I don't think so. It's a currency war and has been since 2001. It won't be a nuclear war, there are far more ways to win than with nukes and not damaging (infrastructure I mean) at all (like the CHAMPS program), but very effective at reducing populations (50 - 90% within a year in major cities). Oh it'll be hi-tech if it happens, and much more effective than conventional war or nukes. It could even be this is all a staged show for exactly that purpose. Population reduction a la Darwin.

Oh I don't expect a war, just that the economy sucks so bad already and it will only get worse.
