Moscow puzzled by some of names on US sanctions list - Putin spokesman
Voice of Russia ^ | 3-20-14 | Interfax

Posted on 03/20/2014 12:40:02 PM PDT by tcrlaf

Moscow is studying Washington's list of individuals against whom sanctions were imposed, and already puzzled by some of the names, Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

"One can say straight away that we are extremely bewildered by the presence of some names on the list," Peskov said.

"So far I cannot say what the reaction is of other people on the US list but Ivanov perceived the news with humor," the president's press secretary said.

Ivanov spent 20-odd years serving in the KGB's First Main Directorate and later in the Russian External Intelligence Service, Peskov recalled.

"As a result of his intelligence activities he was already banned entry to a majority of countries in the West. So he is quite accustomed to this situation," Peskov said.

Only makes sense if the shadowy cabal of statists who tell Obama what to do is profiting financially from this selection.

You got it in ONE, sir...
We should research these people, and how they have effected the Open Society orgs. I’ve got the feeling it’s personal between The Soros Group, and Ivanov.

And just like THAT, 10 seconds of Google reveals this:

Ivanov: World Financial System Is “Major Beneficiary” of Drugs
January 28, 2013 • 11:03AM

Russian anti-drug czar Victor Ivanov pointed to the link of drug trafficking to armed paramilitary groups in North Africa, and leveled a new broadside against “the world financial system” for being “one of the major beneficiaries” of the drug trade, in a lengthy Jan. 17 interview with the Spanish-language edition of Russia Today TV. Ivanov has repeatedly denounced the major international banks for actively seeking drug money deposits, and has specified that a return to FDR’s Glass-Steagall standard would put an end to this process. In his latest remarks (the full Spanish transcription can be found at www.larouchista.com/node/2000) Ivanov said:

“The beneficiaries [of the drug trade] are, above all, the drug traffickers and, unfortunately, it has to be said that one of the major beneficiaries is the world financial system. Since the funds obtained from the yearly drug trade are estimated to be between 500 and 800 billion dollars, it goes without saying that those billions of dollars are not placed under the pillow, but become part of the financial system — they are legalized, they are laundered, causing colossal damage to the country’s economy.”

Ivanov pointed to the role of the drug trade in the spreading terrorist war in northern Africa: “Recently there is a tendency to transport a significant quantity of drugs through the countries of Western Africa towards Europe. In the last five years, the market for cocaine sales in Europe grew by approximately 2 to 4 times; that is to say, there was a gigantic redistribution of flows.

He all but mentions Soros by name!

Moscow puzzled by some of names on US sanctions list - Putin spokesman

Moscow: Just come at Obama with this realization: ANY decision Obama makes is designed to harm America in some way. Look at the names, and see if somehow sanctioning these people will harm our interests. I bet you, you will figure it out somehow.

Soros was hooked up years ago with the Rothschilds who gave him ‘seed’ financing to start his money empire. The Rothschilds were also involved in funding the WWI era for Russian revolutionaries like Trotsky and Lenin in expectations of deposing Czar Nicholas as happened and enlarging their financial empire. As it turned out later rulers saw such an arrangement as against Russia’s better interests and today want very little if any part of the Rothschilds financial bundle which the USA is tied to by way of the Federal Reserve.

How come the 0bama regime is eager to fund, supply and support Muslims in Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc., but leave the Crimeans defenseless against an invasion by Russia?

Barry backs Putin 100%. He is only ACTING upset about it. The spread of Communism is a welcomed sight in Barry's eyes (and Jarrett's, Kerry's, Brennan's, etc..)

They didn’t give enough to the Democrat party and Barka Obama’s re-election campaign and slush fund.

That, or Putin told Obama who to put on the list.

The Russians raided and nearly destroyed an Open Society office in Moscow. They kicked them out saying they were behind on their rent and oh, they found porn in the office too. Imagine that. Which meant they had to leave Russia or something...

That was a really fun thread.

“US and the EU imposed travel sanctions on several officials from Russia”

Can anyone here catch the irony of all that?

During the Communist era, the Soviet Union was forbidding its citizens to travel abroad.
Now, it’s the US and EU, “the paragons of freedom”, who do it.
THEY are showing to Putin how THEY respect the international laws!

Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the U.N. General Assembly, including the United States and ALL the European countries, reads as follow, “EVERYONE has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.”
