    Yanukovich was accused of pro-Russia. But in his regime, the gold reserve of Ukraine reached 40 tons high. He was still for the interest of Ukraine. What about Poroshenko?

    Back in March, at a time when the IMF reported that Ukraine's official gold holdings as of the end of February, so just as the State Department-facilitated coup against former president Victor Yanukovich was concluding, amounted to 42.3 tonnes or 8% of reserves...
    ... and notably under the previous "hated" president, Ukraine gold's reserves had constantly increased hitting a record high just before the presidential coup...

    ... we reported of a strange incident that took place just after the Ukraine presidential coup, namely that according to at least one source, "in a mysterious operation under the cover of night, Ukraine's gold reserves were promptly loaded onboard an unmarked plane, which subsequently took the gold to the US."

    Ukraine had to sell Gold because the whole state is nearing bankruptcy. As you certainly know, the currency has lost 80% value (vs Dollar). Someone has to pay the increased military spendings.

    Putin raised interest rates this morning to curb his collapsing ruble. The decline in the price of oil is killing them. Fracking has been a good thing. :)

    The I.M.F. has identified a $15bn shortfall in its bailout for war-torn Ukraine. The gap need to be filled within weeks to avoid financial collapse.

    G. Osborne, the UK finance minister, saying the EU was now asking for help from Russia at the same time it was sanctioning the Kremlin for its actions in Ukraine.
