Ukraine War Not What You Think, It’s So Much Bigger – A Reset of the Reset?

Will Russia Turn to Gold to Save the Ruble? Possible Pivot in the Financial War.

March 24, 2022 Originally published by QTR's Fringe Finance Russia Will Backstop The Ruble With Gold.

Ukraine “Truce” Fails: Withdrawal Deadline Passes, Debaltseve Situation Deteriorating

UPDATE: *POROSHENKO SAYS UN MUST NOT ALLOW FULL-SCALE WAR IN EUROPE As the game of chicken between Greece and the Eurogroup hots up, it appears another - potentially far more deadly - is escalating in Ukraine as neither side is willing to follow through on the terms of the Minsk Summit peace deal - removing heavy weaponry from the frontlines - as a key deadline passes without agreement.

Exactly one month ago we observed that, as expected in the aftermath of the Netherlands' shocking and still not fully-explained gold repatriation from the NY Fed, the amount of foreign earmarked gold on deposit with the Fed had just experienced a 42 ton withdrawal: the single largest outflow of gold held at the NY Fed in over a decade, going back all the way to 2001. This had brought the total[...]

With Its Gold “Vaporized”, A Furious Ukraine Turns On Its Central Bankers

As reported two weeks ago, following a stunning announcement by the head of Ukraine's central bank, Valeriya Gontareva, on primetime TV we learned that (virtually) all of Ukraine's gold was gone, or - in the parlance of Jon Corzine - had "vaporized." And as we also predicted two weeks ago, it was only a matter of time before Ukraine's people - the vast majority of whom are innocent pawns in a[...]

The reason: the Ukraine economy appears to have ground to a halt following an overnight report that [...]
