The Iron Curtain is falling on Russia again

Foreign companies get rid of their assets in the Russian Federation, while Russian businesses cut their investment in foreign countries.Experts analysed the data of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation and concluded that the Russian economy is standing on the verge of the isolation crisis. The crisis may develop further, and many socio-economic projects in Russia are likely to be shelved. There is a different point of view to the problem: new regional centres have started forming in the world, and the process will cause a redistribution of investment flows. For example, certain US funds have increased their investments in Russian bonds despite sanctions. Nevertheless, foreign businesses prefer not to keep assets in Russia and tend to sell them. "The net incurrence of liabilities in the non-financial sector in direct investments in the third quarter was negative: minus $6 billion. This suggests that non-residents sell real assets and leave Russia," Kirill Tremasov, formerly a chief representative of the Ministry of Economic Development said."Russian companies have practically ended direct investments abroad too. The net acquisition of assets by the non-financial sector under "direct investments"  in the third quarter was minus $100 million, the economist said.Tremasov sees these processes as "a clear illustration of the fact that the Russian economy has embarked on the way of isolationism." "Nothing like this has been observed in Russia's modern history before," he added. Tamara Kasyanova, first vice-president of the Russian Club of Financial Directors, believes that Russia has secluded itself and can seclude itself even more. Yet, the expert does not think that the Russian authorities are pursuing the policy of "isolationism." It would be more appropriate to say that sanctions and growing external pressure scare investors away from Russia, the financier said.According to Alexei Antonov, an analyst at Alor Broker, "the Iron Curtain" sounds too dramatic. "At the same time, isolationism, even insignificant, does not bring good to anyone. This is just a waste of time and resources, a technological lag, which becomes insurmountable over time," he said. According to the expert, the Russian leadership understands this. Russia has been building its foreign policy in a way to maintain ties with Asian countries in the first place, the analyst said. Ekaterina Novikova, an associate professor of the Russian University of Economics, said that markets are being redistributed now. "The international market has its limits - the supplies of additional products to existing markets is limited. Therefore, a question arises as to how existing markets should be divided. For this reason, Western countries are pursuing the policy of sanctions against Russia, Iran, China, Turkey in order to get access to additional markets for their products. In this situation, the Russian economy has to defend itself by pursuing the policy of import substitution, de-dollarization, restrictions on foreign investment, and so on," the expert said. Many experts also believe that foreign investors are concerned with Russia's internal problems, such as low GDP growth. International capital thus leaves Russia behind to avoid significant risks and low dollar returns.Surprisingly, the State of California has entered the top 10 of foreign holders of Russian debt obligations. The California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) invested about $450 million in Russian securities. Investments have grown by an average of eight percent since the end of 2017.

Russia develops special strategy in Africa

While the attention of the United States of America and the European Union is focused on the Middle East, the Russian Federation is developing cooperation with North Africa, Swiss publication Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote. The authors of the article believe that Russian President Putin is expanding Russia's influence in Africa. Not that long ago, the article says, Russia handed over another submarine to Algeria. The publication also said that the Russian government actively supports Libyan military leader Khalifa Haftar. Tunisia has recently announced plans for "nuclear cooperation" with Russia.It is not the first submarine that Russia has delivered to Algeria over time, the newspaper wrote. The  Kilo submarine that Russia delivered to Algeria is known in NATO member states as "black hole" as it hardly makes any noise during navigation. Russia has a strategy in Africa, the goal of which is to gain more allies, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung newspaper concludes. Also read: Russia's African comeback - better late than never

Schengen visa applications in Russia increase by 22 percent

As many as 3,885,899 Russian citizens applied for a visa at Schengen embassies in 2017. The number marked an increase by 708,278 people (23%) in comparison with 2016, a recent report released by SchengenVisaInfo.com said. This growth had also affected the Russians' percentage share of global Schengen visa application during 2016 and 2017. In 2017 these applicants shared almost the quarter (24%) of the total applications worldwide, while in 2016 Russians amounted to 21% of the total number of Schengen visa applications globally. In 2017, most Russians went to Finland embassies to apply for Schengen visa. Official recordings show that the consulate in St. Petersburg received more than half a million of visa applications. Exactly 591,581 Russians filed a Schengen visa application at the Finland embassy during that year. That's much higher than 355,612 applications that this consulate received the year before. Other Finland's consulates located in Moscow and in Murmansk (in northern Russia) contributed with 70,718 respectively 27,636 visa applications.

Russian Central Bank warns of risks for oil to drop to $35

A risk scenario of the Central Bank of Russia stipulates a ruction in oil prices down to $35 per barrel.Ksenia Yudaeva, first deputy chairwoman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, said during her speech speech at the Council of Federation that the bank proceeds from its forecasts, in which Western sanctions against Russia are not going to be lifted. The risk scenario is based on expectations for the sanctions ti be tightened further during the upcoming years, while prices on oil are going to decline sharply. In the beginning of October 2018, the cost of a barrel of Russian Urals oil was fluctuating above the level of $80. The basic scenario of the Central Bank of Russia suggests the reduction of the cost of a barrel of Urals oil to an average of $55 in 2020-2021. For the risk scenario, the cost of a barrel of Urals may halve already in 2019. Such a decline will speed up inflation and halt the growth of Russia's GDP.

Russian Finance Minister urges Russians not to cash dollars

Finance Minister Anton Siluanov stated that Russia was not going to restrict the circulation of the US dollar. There is no reason for Russian citizens to cash their dollar deposits, the minister said on "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin." TV program on Rossiya 1 TV channel. It is up to people to decide how and in which currency they want to save their money. "If someone thinks that they should rush to banks to withdraw currency from accounts, then this is absolutely not the case," the minister noted.Siluanov also said that the government intends to create favourable conditions for participants of foreign economic activity, who use the national currency in financial activities. Earlier, President Vladimir Putin said that reducing the role of the US currency would contribute to the stability of global economy and reduce the possibility of using the dollar as an instrument of political pressure.It was reported last week that many Russians started withdrawing cash from their dollar accounts because of the tightening of sanctions against Russia. In August, the Russians withdrew $5.1 billion from deposits in state-run banks. Later, it was said that the government was preparing a project to abjure the use of the US dollar in the Russian economy, although the reports received no official confirmation.

Foreign companies will be able to access the Russian equivalent of the SWIFT payment system. The State Duma is preparing a bill designed to protect the companies that have fallen under Western sanctions in order to give them a possibility to conduct mutual settlements with foreign counterparties. Russian MPs believe that the system will function most effectively if the BRICS countries, as well as Iran and Turkey, join it. "Although they plan to use national currencies in settlements with Russia, but they do not exclude that settlements can be conducted through the Russian equivalent of SWIFT," Anatoly Aksakov, the head of the State Duma Committee on Financial Markets said. Earlier, first deputy chairman of the Central Bank, Olga Skorobogatova, said that connecting foreign companies to the financial messaging system would expand possibilities for mutual exchange of messages and settlements between sanctioned companies that do not have access to making payments through the original SWIFT system, and foreign contractors.The Russian equivalent to SWIFT is a financial messaging system known for the Russian initials as SPFS. The bill stipulates for direct messaging between both Russian and foreign legal entities.According to the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, there are more than 400 participants in the SPFS system, including banks, the federal treasury, legal entities, and corporate clients. "Inside the country, our system covers the exchange in financial messages completely," a source at the Central Bank of Russia said. "If we talk about cross-border operations, they can be implemented only on the basis of the agreement between several countries. There are such discussions happening already on the level of both the Eurasian Economic Union and BRICS."In the near future, SWIFT may have another competitor in Europe. The head of the German Foreign Ministry, Heiko Maas, said in August that the European Union was in need of its own and independent SWIFT system to protect the financial stability of European companies from US sanctions. Russia found such an intention of European partners quite natural. After the appearance of the European SWIFT system, Russia intends to offer European companies to incorporate a Russian analogue to SWIFT."The possibility to connect foreign countries to the Russian system depends on a number of factors. As for Iran, a lot depends on the volume of economic cooperation that is going to happen. So far, it has not been large at all, but there are reasons for it to grow, especially in the oil and gas sector," Nikolai Kozhanov, a researcher at the European University at St. Petersburg Energy Policy Research Center said. Turkey is already showing willingness to cooperate with the Russian SWIFT. "The Russian equivalent to SWIFT is a revolutionary innovation in the digital world. The possibility of its use by Turkish companies can provide an important development of trade relations between our countries," Mehmet Yolcu, chairman of the board of directors of FinExpertiza Turkey said.According to Dmitry Mosyakov, director of the Center for Southeast Asia, Australia and Oceania of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, China's position on the matter will depend on its relations with the United States. The worse China's relationship with the States goes, the better it is for the Russian SWIFT system. "The relations between China and the USA have been quite intense lately, but if the United States shows positive signs to China, then taking into account the volume of their trade ($500-600 billion) and China's trade volume with Russia ($100 billion as of 2018), China will demonstrate loyalty to the United States and will not connect to the Russian project," the expert said. SWIFT is an international interbank system for transmitting information and making payments. The system incorporates more than 11,000 financial institutions in 200 countries of the world. After 9/11 attacks, the United States gained access to SWIFT network in order to track possible transactions between terrorist groups. Thus, US authorities have access to information related to any payment that goes through SWIFT. Russia launched its own version of SWIFT - SPFS - for domestic financial operations in December 2014.

Putin's ratings decline seriously to where they were before Crimea referendum

Public opinion research center Levada conducted a poll among Russian citizens asking them whether they trust President Putin. The results of the survey were more than curious.It turned out that the level of confidence in the national leader has declined. The poll showed only 58 percent of those who still trust Putin. Interestingly, the same percentage of respondents spoke in favour of President Putin back in 2013, prior to Russia's move to reunite with the Crimea and the ensuing euphoria that swept across Russia afterwards as people were more than just impressed with Putin's power and determination. In 2017, as many as 75 percent of Russians were supportive of Putin's policies. The percentage of those who believe that Vladimir Putin "does not deserve" their support has seriously increased from four percent in 2017 to 13 percent in 2018. Putin's ratings skyrocketed again in late 2017, on the eve of the presidential election, when the naive Russians were promised higher salaries and bigger support to regions. However, Putin "pleased" Russian citizens with the highly unpopular pension reform. It is the reform, which basically raises the retirement age in Russia for both men and women, that cut the level of people's confidence in Putin, Levada Center.

Putin calls Skripal scumbag and traitor, likens him to prostitute

President Putin set out a hope that the media campaign that has been artificially generated around the case of Sergei Skripal is going to end soon. Speaking at the meeting of the Russian Energy Week in Moscow, Putin stated that the scandal associated with the case of Sergei Skripal was being artificially inflated. He also said that Skripal himself, a former GRU employee, was a traitor. "As for the Skripals, there's this spy scandal being artificially inflated about them. Some media outlets, some journalists already pass him off as a human right activist. He's just a spy. A traitor of the motherland. There is such a thing - a traitor of the nation. He is one of them. He's just a scumbag," Putin stated responding to a question about the sanctions that the West imposed on Russia as a result of the Salisbury incident. Putin demanded the UK should give Russia evidence of its involvement in the incident. "All this hustle and bustle between special services - is it a new thing? As is well known, espionage, just like prostitution, is one of the most ancient professions in the world," Putin said. Putin also expressed his outraged at the fact that the UK accused Russia of poisoning a homeless individual. "I sometimes look at what is happening, and I get amazed. Some men came and poisoned homeless people over there. What kind of nonsense is this? Do they work in the cleaning service?" Putin wondered. "This Skripal man, as I have already said, is a traitor, he got caught, he got punished, he had served a total of five years in prison, we released him. That's all. He left and continued consulting some special services," Putin added.The UK and a number of Western countries accuse Russian special services of working under cover to poison former GRU officer (the service was abolished and now called General Staff Headquarters) Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the British town of Salisbury. London believes that it was Russian secret service officers Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov who conducted the special operation.

Russia wants Bout, Yaroshenko and Butina in exchange for Ukraine's Sentsov

Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov, who was convicted in Russia for 20 years in a strict regime colony, continues his hunger strike that has entered the 141st day. According to unconfirmed reports, he can return to Ukraine under two conditions. Firstly, Oleg Sentsov can be exchanged for Viktor Bout and Konstantin Yaroshenko - two Russian citizens, who were convicted in the USA - as well as for Maria Butina, who also remains in custody in the United States. Secondly, Kiev should not take part in the relevant negotiations between Moscow and Washington. Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated that she had no knowledge of such a possibility. Russian president's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov also said that he did not know anything about the existence of such plans. Sentsov's lawyer Dmitry Dinze also said that he was not aware of such terms of exchange, nor did he know whether such an opportunity could be available at all. However,  Russian and US foreign ministers Sergei Lavrov and Mike Pompeo discussed the fate of the above-listed four people at the end of August 2018 during a telephone conversation. Pompeo then raised the question of Sentsov's release, and Lavrov in turn spoke about the illegal detention of businessman Victor Bout and pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko in US prisons. Lavrov also mentioned the persecution of Russian citizen Maria Butina "under a far-fetched pretext."Russian citizen Viktor Bout was detained in 2008 in the capital of Thailand on the basis of a warrant issued by a local court at the request from the United States. Bout was accused of illegal arms supplies to the "Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia" which is considered a terrorist organisation in the United States. In 2010, Bout was extradited to the United States. In April 2012, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison and a fine of $15 million. Last year, the US Supreme Court refused to review his case.Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko was sentenced in the United States on September 7, 2011, to 20 years of imprisonment. He pleads not guilty and considers his arrest a provocation, and his case a fabrication. The Russian pilot was brought to the USA from Liberia, where he was arrested on May 28, 2010. Yaroshenko was accused of criminal intentions to transport a large batch of cocaine. Later, the Russian claimed that members of American special services tortured him. Maria Butina, aged 29, was arrested in Washington on July 15 of 2018. She was accused of working as a foreign agent without registration to influence US policy, promote Russian interests and conduct activities in favour of a foreign state on the territory of the United States.

The Kremlin refuses to discuss topic of Skripal poisoning with mass media

Putin's official spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, declined to comment on the information about the individuals suspected of the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.Peskov said that the Russian government would not discuss the topic with media representatives. According to Putin's press secretary, it makes no sense to discuss the topic because there is no evidence to prove Russia's involvement in the crime. Therefore, it would be incorrect to pay so much attention to speculation, Dmitry Peskov added.Peskov's strong reaction came in response to the question of why President Putin was supposedly incorrectly informed about the personalities of Russian citizens Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov, whom London suspected of the crime. It became known that Mr. Boshirov was actually a GRU Colonel, whose real name was Anatoly Chepiga. President Putin earlier said that the two suspects - Petrov and Boshirov - were civilians. The British authorities, Vladimir Putin added, were seriously mistaken in their investigation.

Russia's new combat drone ready for maiden flight

Russia is about to complete the ground trials of the new combat unmanned aerial vehicle known as "Hunter." The new UAV will perform its maiden flight in the near future. The ground tests of the new vehicle were conducted in the Crimea and Novosibirsk."In October, it is planned to begin the final stage of frequency trials for the Hunter glider, after which it will be possible to talk about the readiness of the drone for its maiden flight," a source close to the Russian Defense Ministry said. Flight tests for the Hunter drone are scheduled for 2019.Frequency, or vibration trials, are an important stage on the way to aerial trials. They make it possible to determine frequency drift in the design of an aircraft. As a rule, upon the completion of frequency trials, engineers give their conclusion required for the first flight of an aircraft. The Hunter combat drone is developed by Sukhoi design bureau. All the tactical and technical characteristics of the new drone are kept secret. It is known, however, that the strike drone is equipped with the artificial intelligence of a sixth-generation fighter. The take-off weight of the drone is 20 tons, which makes it a real heavyweight aircraft among other models of unmanned vehicles that are currently being developed in Russia. A photo of the Hunter drone appeared on the Internet in 2017. Judging by the picture, the UAV is developed according to the "flying wing" aerodynamic principle.

India decides to buy S-400 systems from Russia worth nearly $6 billion

India is ready to conclude an agreement with Russia on the purchase of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems. USA's recent sanctions against China for purchasing Russia's renowned anti-aircraft missile complexes have not affected the position of New Delhi.India has decided to purchase five S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia for $5.43 billion, Indian publication The Economic Times wrote with reference to sources in the government of India. The final decision on the purchase of S-400 systems from Russia was made at a meeting of the security committee of the Indian government headed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The contract is to be signed during Putin's upcoming visit to India on October 4-5, the newspaper wrote. Representatives of the Indian government have not confirmed the information yet.According to The Economic Times, India will pay 15% of the contract amount in advance. The rest of the mount will be transferred depending on delivery terms. The first complex is to be delivered to the place of service in India within 24 months after the conclusion of the contract.The Indian contract for the purchase of S-400 from Russia is connected with the position of the United States. The US CAATSA law involves the introduction of secondary sanctions against the organisations that enter into "significant transactions" with sanctioned Russian companies, such as, for example, Rosoboronexport (defence export company). On September 20, Washington imposed sanctions on the Department of Military Training and Procurement of the Central Military Commission of the People's Republic of China for buying ten Su-35 fighters and S-400 complexes from Russia.US officials also said that other countries willing to purchase S-400 from Russia may fall under sanctions too. Mike Pompeo, the head of the State Department and US Secretary of Defence James Mattis flew to India to discuss the situation. At a press conference in New Delhi on September 6, Pompeo noted that a decision had not been made, but "Washington understands the history of relations between India and Russia." "Our effort here is not to penalise a great strategic partner like India," Pompeo told reporters after top level talks with Indian leaderMoscow and New Delhi agreed the S-400 deal worth $6 billion in the spring of 2018. Later, Dmitry Shugaev, the director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia, said that Russia decided to lower the price for the strategic partner.

Russian opposition MPs accept pension reform without a fight

On Wednesday, September 26, the Russian parliament, the State Duma, gave the second reading to the government bill on the pension reform. Officially, it goes about a move to improve the pension law. In fact, however, the authorities prefer not to talk about the "improvement" as it basically raises the retirement age in Russia. Three hundred and twenty-six out of 450 MPs supported the bill. Only 59 voted against it and one abstained. Here is some more food for thought in numbers. The ruling United Russia party counts 342 MPs. Obviously, their votes would be enough to approve the document. Communists come second - 42 MPs. LDPR is next with 39 MPs. Just Russia counts 23 deputies, two others are exempt from parliament factions. All the three opposition factions were originally opposed to raising the retirement age in Russia. However, 59 out of 104 opposition MPs voted in favor of the bill. Forty-five others did no find such an opportunity for themselves.Moreover, prior to the vote on the bill, the MPs approved nine of Putin's amendments to it. One of them lowers the retirement age for women from 63 to 60 years. After the vote, the leader of the United Russia faction, Sergei Neverov, noted with satisfaction that no one voted against president's amendments. "Presidential amendments were supported by representatives of all political factions in the State Duma: 385 voted for them, no one either abstained or voted against the amendments," the official said. "It is also very important that all factions without exception supported the ratification of the International Labor Organization Convention (415 votes for), and issues of medical examination of persons of pre-retirement age (419 votes for)," also noted Neverov.State Duma deputy from the Communist Party faction, Leonid Kalashnikov, explained the paradoxical behavior of his faction to Pravda.Ru. According to Communists, there is no paradox here - the faction cares about the people. "We believe that we can make people's lives easier, at least with the help of the draft law that we have here. We can not vote against it if these amendments suggest making people's lives easier. They do help in the draft. In general, we vote against the law about the pension reform. However, United Russia will adopt it anyway, so we vote to make people's lives easier, at least a little," Leonid Kalashnikov told Pravda.Ru.

Su-57 fifth-generation fighter to be armed with ultra-long-range hypersonic missile

The ultra-long-range hypersonic missile R-37M will be used for the fifth generation Su-57 fighter jet, Boris Obnosov, the general director of Tactical Missile Armament Corporation said. According to the official, the missile will be mounted on the aircraft on external suspension. In July, it was reported that the missile was going through the final stage of trials. It was reported that the R-37M hypersonic missile will be able to strike high-speed targets at a range of more than 300 km. The missile is capable of developing a hypersonic speed up to 6 Mach at the final stage of its flight. The R-37M missile comes as a development of the R-37 ultra-long-range missile of the previous generation, the development of which was launched in the early 1980s. The size of the missile (more than four meters long and the take off weight of six tons) limited its use to only the MiG-31 interceptor aircraft. The work to create the R-37M was launched in the late 2000s.
