SPUTNIKNEWS – January 10, 2018: Martin Armstrong is a US financial analyst who created a unique mathematical formula that enabled him to correctly predict many events in politics and economics. In an interview with Sputnik, he revealed how US banks wanted to take over Russia and explained why the euro is destined to collapse.
US Banking Plot to Take Over Russia
New York investment bankers staged a “financial coup” against Russia in the late 1990s, world famous financial analyst Martin Armstrong said in an interview with Sputnik Germany.
The main goal was to make Russia dependent on US money in the long term, he argued.
According to Armstrong, Russian billionaire and oligarch Boris Berezovsky played a key role in this process. The analyst also said that the head of the Republic National Bank of New York and the US fund Hermitage Capital, Edmond Safra, was the one who funded the whole wire.
“Whether the US government was involved, I’m not entirely sure. But the bankers definitely were. And what they were after is basically they got Yeltsin to steal effectively 7 billion dollars from IMF loans.”
Once the transfer was completed, Safra reported to the US government and the FBI about Yeltsin’s alleged money laundering activities via the Bank of New York.
“Then the prosecutors immediately went to the Bank of New York and then they threatened Yeltsin and said: look, you resign and put this guy Berezovsky and everything will be fine. And Yeltsin at that stage realized that this all was a set up.”
In Armstrong’s opinion, that’s when he turned to the young Vladimir Putin, who confiscated all assets of Hermitage Capital in Russia.
The analyst revealed that New York bankers urged him to participate in the “financial coup” against Russia.
“They tried to get me to invest in Hermitage Capital and I declined. I said: look, this is gonna collapse, it’s not gonna work. They wanted me to put in ten billion dollar, and I said no I’m not up with my clients’ money into it. I refused,’ Armstrong said.
“When they started this nonsense about me, I told them ‘look, Republic stole the money.’ And the government said ‘we believe Republic’. I said Ok, fine, and I did an interview in Japan with the Japan press,” the expert recalled, adding that during his interview he told the truth, and right afterwards he became the target of US intelligence.
US intelligence agencies have repeatedly tried to lure out his secret formula that helped him to predict the 1998 financial crisis in Russia, financial crises in 2007 — 2009 and the crisis of euro, but the analyst refused.
“When Russia collapsed, that’s when the CIA basically came in and said: look, we want this model. We offered to provide forecasting for them, and they basically said no they had to own it. And that’s why I said ‘no.'”
“The idea of the euro actually was presented by the United States back in 1985. And they were arguing Europe should consolidate, create a single currency to compete with the dollar, because the dollar kept going up to high,” the analyst said.
“When the euro was being formed, they actually came to me…and I said: look, the only way you can compete against the US dollar is you have to have a consolidated debt. And I was told back then in 1988 they didn’t think the European people would vote for that. So they just want to get the currency through first, once they got the currency through they said they would deal with the debt secondly, which they never did.” Link: Read Complete Article
