Kremlin may resort to services of Chinese, European and American banks

Russia is seeking to dodge E.U. and U.S sanctions imposed over by releasing three billion dollars' worth of bonds with a 10-year maturity. To do this, the Kremlin plans to use the services of Chinese, European and American banks.

This is reported by Russian media, with reference to the German newspaper Die Welt. 'Putin is luring Wall Street giants into his snare', the newspaper writes.

Western sanctions against Russia do not prohibit banks from participating in loan auctions. Banks have the right to give loans to Russia because it is only certain companies which are blacklisted, not the state. Therefore, President Putin can attract funds to the country and then transfer them to the blacklisted firms. If Russia managed to find loans, ‘it would be a political failure for the E.U. and the U.S.', Die Welt reports.

However, the newspaper explains such a step is very risky for Russia and entails the ‘all or nothing' strategy.

Washington takes Russia's initiative very seriously: the government is calling on U.S. banks to avoid agreements with the Kremlin or provide it with loans. Despite all the warnings coming from Washington, many banks are guided by business prospects and therefore inclined to support Russia's position.........

Meanwhile, the Russian Finance Ministry says they would issue loans regardless of U.S. stipulations.

....Russia’s PR game is mostly talk, but the international community still seems unwilling to confront that talk. This intentional aversion to confrontation with a bullying quasi-superpower sets a dangerous precedent, where Putin is given the go-ahead to establish hegemony and consolidate Russian interests – often at the expense of civilian lives and infrastructure, and without any opposition whatsoever from the Western bloc.
If Russia isn’t challenged on its violations of international law, precedent will turn into status quo, and Russia will leverage its untouchable status to make strides in securing its regional hegemony....

Trying to change the way the Russian government runs will be a very long task, as there are too many oligarchs that don't want change. We've seen many killed for going against Putin and the Kremlin. Even if Putin was gone, this practice will continue. Even with a new government, they'll have to do what the Ukrainian government is doing, by trying to clean out corruption, within itself as we've seen isn't an easy task for any leader. People are dreaming that it can be wiped out overnight, and it'll be even longer in Russia, to take care of that issue.

IMO, any totally new government in Russia will have to tread lightly or they'll find themselves six feet under, as the population of criminals, oligarchs and crooked politicians is much bigger and more ruthless as we've seen for years. But is it impossible? No! I'd like to see the change soon, but I doubt I'll see it totally changed in my lifetime. But it must be worked towards making it a reality.
