NBU strengthens official exchange rate to UAH 25.80 to dollar

I noticed 25.4 / 25.8 at the exchange bureau yesterday. The best rate for some time.
Strange - the political situation is very insecure. The war continues. Netherlands vote against the AA. And the currency strengthens.
Some intervention? And if so why? Buying gas from abroad? (My thought)

Putin Says Panama Papers Part Of Western Plot To Destabilize Russia [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Fri Apr 08, 2016 2:58 am

http://www.rferl.org/content/panama-papers-putin-comments-destabilize-russia/27660820.html
Russian President Vladimir Putin mocked the massive leak of financial and legal documents known as the Panama Papers that reportedly implicate several people close to him, saying the project was part of a Western government campaign to destabilize Russia. ...
Among the names reportedly appearing in the documents is that of cellist Sergei Roldugin, an old friend of Putin's and reportedly a godfather to one of his daughters. Media reports on the Panama Papers have said Roldugin holds hundreds of millions of dollars in offshore assets.
Putin said he was "proud" of Roldugin.
"[Roldugin] has spent nearly all the money he has earned on buying musical instruments abroad and he brought them to Russia," he said.....

====
2 billion dollars on musical instruments? A Steinway piano in every Russian house )) All the Stradiveri instruments in the world must be in Russia now )) LOL...
Putin is on drugs, but the Russian press will churn out this rubbish, and the old Babushkas and many others will believe it all. Otherwise Putin wouldn't come out with this utter garbage..
====
Observation - I just tried to do a calculation on how many violins, cellos or pianos you could buy with a couple of billion...
but my basic calculator couldn't cope with 2 billion. But you can get an ok piano or violin now for 500 dollars or less.
So - 40 million pianos?! Is my maths right? !! Have 40 million new violins, or pianos suddenly appeared in Russia? jocolor

....Although the referendum carries an advisory character, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has said that the indisputable success of the “No” camp means the Netherlands will not automatically ratify the agreement, pending talks in Dutch Parliament and a possible renegotiation of the deal in Brussels — a lengthy process that could play into Russia's hands, analysts told The Moscow Times.....

Russia's Offshore Bandits: Hypocrisy Laid Bare by Panama Revelations [engl]

Post by Nelson on Fri Apr 08, 2016 3:23 am

.http://www.themoscowtimes.com/opinion/article/russias-offshore-bandits-hypocrisy-laid-bare-by-panama-revelations/564937.html
....Then came the Sunday Times' revelation that Andrei Yakunin, son of anti-Western ideologue and former-Russian Railways head Vladimir, had another London mansion, far larger than the one we already knew about. While Vladimir Yakunin was parading the belt of the Virgin Mary around Russia, and instructing Russians to avoid contact with the West, his own son was quietly taking British citizenship and his grandson was attending an elite British private school.
Finally, of course came the Panama Papers, with their revelations about the corporate structures controlled by Dmitry Peskov's wife, Nikolai Patrushev's nephew and, of course, the godfather of Vladimir Putin's daughter. ...
It is of course not a secret that Kremlin insiders run Russia for their own enrichment, but this barrage of revelations provides extraordinary levels of detail, and lays bare the nature of how Russia is governed in ways we have not seen before....
