UK Joins US, EU in Sanctioning Russia’s Central Bank
Aims to ‘Devastate’ Economy, ‘Target’ Putin and Sergey Lavrov
We had heard from internet sources (non-MSM, non-BM) perhaps five or six years ago that Putin had kicked the Rothschild’s and their central bank out of Russia. I was skeptical and put the idea on the shelf awaiting further confirmation.
Recently, (yesterday in The Epoch Times), I came across a story that would seem to lend much credence to that possibility. Think about it: You don’t “sanction” something that you already control—unless they are fake sanctions, of course.
But, if indeed Putin is targeting and destroying the cabal’s bio-weapons labs in Ukraine, and his “white hats” control the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, then the non-cabal-controlled bank would be a target of the cabal to try to punish Putin and bring Russia back under the control of the cabal. Here are a couple paragraphs from the story in The Epoch Times.
The new sanctions are aimed at preventing the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (CBR) from deploying foreign reserves to counter the impact of Western sanctions. It will also “undercut” the bank’s ability to engage in forex transactions aimed at supporting the Russian currency rouble, said the UK government.
“These measures demonstrate our determination to apply severe economic sanctions in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” said Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak.

“We are announcing this action in rapid coordination with our U.S. and European allies to move in lock step once more with our international partners, to demonstrate our steadfast resolve in imposing the highest costs on Russia and to cut her off from the international financial system [my emphasis—JWB] so long as this conflict persists.”
According to the sanctions, UK citizens are banned from engaging in financial transactions with CBR, the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation, and the Russian National Wealth Fund. Restrictions are also placed against Russian financial institutions. Russian companies will be prohibited from issuing money market instruments and transferable securities in the UK…
The UK government claims that these sanctions will “devastate Russia’s economy and [target] Vladimir Putin directly and his inner circle including Sergey Lavrov,” Moscow’s minister of foreign affairs.
More than 100 oligarchs and companies “at the heart of Putin’s regime” have been struck with sanctions worth hundreds of billions of pounds as well as travel bans and asset freezes. END QUOTE
