US Sanctions Russian Individuals.
I have chosen several components from the latest US Sanctions on Russia of various individuals that won’t get widely reported on, and I will leave the full list of names to the end of this piece. As I read through the names of those Sanctioned, I did a little research on them all to get a bit of background:
Suleyman Abuseydavich Kerimov. He has a Muslim name and indeed he is from Dagestan. He was educated at Dagestan State University. He is a Politician and Philanthropist. He has studied Engineering, Economics and is a Trade Union man. He is also a businessman and investor. He has worked hard and started from nothing. He will be reported on for his involvement in Gazprom by all mainstream western journalists. But I want to focus on something else. He is a Billionaire, just like any other Western successful businessman, but with such an Education and as a Philanthropist he gives a lot back…..The Suleyman Kerimov Foundation… (a Not for Profit NGO).
No doubt Google will remove the Link to his website as has already happened to the website of another gentleman I will be discussing, although it has only been a few hours since the Sanctions have been announced. So, here are a few peaks at the Pages on that website:-
There are 475 entries of Projects that have received Funding from this man. And this is just three pages from the site showing a few of them. I’m a woman, so I’m getting a little emotional. Sanctioning this man is a Criminal Act. It’s Psychopathic in fact. But then we already know the USa is Fascist, and if you didn’t, I challenge you to read these screenshots and disagree with me.
He also propped up the US Banks during the Banking Crisis. He invested a huge amount of money in Wall Street to help the USA during that difficult time. In fact, Wall Street implored him to do that.
Role in the 2008 crisis:
In 2007, Kerimov invested billions in Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse and other financial institutions. Though neither Kerimov nor the Western banks have disclosed the exact size of his investment, it was sizeable enough for Kerimov to receive a call from the United States Treasury during the darkest days of the economic crisis imploring the Russian oligarch not to sell his stakes.
And now they have Sanctioned that money – i.e. US has STOLEN it. Taken it all.
I hope that is a lesson learned to any individual from any Foreign Country that has invested in Wall Street. Selling off and investing that money elsewhere would be advisable. If I were in your shoes I would be doing that. But that’s just my opinion.
He is described as a very private man and difficult to talk to, as he is a creative thinker and a few steps ahead. He thinks about things others would not think of.
Andrei Skoch. He was educated at the Institute of Physical Culture (Sports Science).
A career in Banking, Oil Trader, a Billionaire, but I want to direct your attention to this:
He is a creator of the humanitarian Pokolenie (“Generation”) Foundation.
He has reportedly donated over $117 million, a portion of which was earmarked for the restoration of war monuments in Russia. Through the Pokolenie Foundation, Skoch is the sponsor of the Debut Prize, a literary award for Russian writers under the age of 25.
What on earth could be wrong with a Website for Andrei Skoch’s Philanthropy and Charity who knows? Some wonderful images of Russia’s World War Two Memorials perhaps? Or a book list of young writers in Russia? He does get a mention on Publishing Perspectives site though……. :-
Kirill Shamalov. He has a Degree from St Petersburg University in Jurisprudence. A subject that I have not heard of here in the UK. But on looking up that subject it is one I would have picked had I been aware it is a subject! “Jurisprudence or legal theory is the theoretical study of law, principally by philosophers but, from the twentieth century, also by social scientists. Scholars of jurisprudence, also known as jurists or legal theorists, hope to obtain a deeper understanding of legal reasoning, legal systems, legal institutions, and the role of law in society.”
Maybe there is a Degree in this in the UK, and it was just my mother banning me from studying Sociology as an Option in secondary school (I had to pack it in, she wasn’t having it) – I just must have just stopped looking at all such subjects.
He is the Ex Son in Law of Putin and is listed on Wikipedia as:
“In January 2018, Shamalov separated from his wife, Katerina Tikhonova, Putin’s youngest daughter. He allegedly lost 50% of his wealth as a ‘punishment’ for this separation”.
What is the reason for the Sanctions against him then? Surely this is a mistake? What is the mistake? Exactly? I don’t believe for one second he lost anything of his personal wealth simply for getting a Divorce, and if it were true, then surely the US would have attempted to cultivate him as an ally. Clearly there are some huge mistakes here but usually, when there are such allegations of skullduggery and thuggery in Russia – connected to Putin, they are FAKE NEWS!
I think it is more likely because he is a “Jurisprudence” man. The US has stated that no US Citizen is allowed to “Talk” to anyone on this new list. And having been an Activist on social media for many years, the US is totally Lawless, especially on such subjects. Christian Courts and Pharisees and Sadducees would have to come into this subject for SURE and that would have Zionists and Criminals SEETHING. It would also cover UNESCO I am quite sure.
Now for the full list, and after the expulsion of Russian United Nations Envoys based in New York a week or so ago, the Security Council Secretary for Russia on this list has given me the answer to my question over expulsion of UN Staff: “How much further can this go before there is an International Outcry?”
The United States introduced sanctions on Friday, seven Russian businessmen, twelve companies under their control and 17 officials, a senior government official told reporters.
