About the Confiscation of Russian Property in Ukraine

NEW – August 12, 2022

The final chapter of the Kiev regime’s existence is coming

At the end of July, the government of Ukraine prepared a list of 420 state-owned enterprises that will be privatised or liquidated, since these are “legal entities that do not have the capacity to resume work”. According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Economy, “66 state-owned enterprises will receive new owners as part of the so-called ‘small’ privatisation”. It is not specified which enterprises are planned to be liquidated or privatised.

And on August 6, Zelensky announced the confiscation of Russian assets in Ukraine totaling $765 million. It is planned to confiscate more than 900 objects belonging to the Russian state. “And if we evaluate the ownership package not only of the state, but also of its residents, then we are talking about 36,000 positions to be withdrawn,” Zelensky said in a video message.

The experience of privatising state property and confiscating foreign property is not limited to Ukraine. In countries that have entered the path of market democracy, this happens all the time, here and there. Whatever legal form the transfer of state property to private owners takes, as a rule, the winners are always the officials who control this fascinating process. In the depths of the process, corruption of an unprecedented scale always originates and flourishes.

As for the embattled Kiev regime, the privatisation of the last state property objects in Ukraine will, as it is not difficult to foresee, not only be an invitation to enrich “specially trusted persons”, but also the final chapter of the regime’s existence. For there can be no state that conducts military operations and puts control of the economy in private hands. This is practiced only by the state, which has lost all hope of military success and has begun to run away in the person of the “servants of the people”.

The current Ukrainian president looks like a speculator who has stolen a cartload of junk somewhere. He stands at a crossroads and sells what he does not need: “I found it by accident, I will sell it inexpensively…” Zelensky’s predecessor Poroshenko was the same dealer. However, he was more like the shy Alchen from Ilf and Petrov’s “12 chairs”. He steals something in a boarding house for elderly girls and walks around with his eyes downcast, satisfied with his new acquisition. And Zelensky, despite being a comedian, is a real looter, who picked up good things from people and then put on the wanted list. Such a looter, sensing the danger of retribution, sells everything that is possible, quickly and inexpensively, without bothering with any auctions. And what are the auctions in Ukraine today? Here it would be better to grab what is possible and get ready to escape.

Now the US administration is faced with the question of what to do with Zelensky. On the one hand, he is loudly trumpeting the imminent “victory”, and on the other, he is clearly preparing to run away. Shouldn’t he be replaced for someone else before it’s too late?

Sometimes Zelensky begins to resemble the emperor of the Central African Empire, the ogre dictator Bokassa, who was loved by the French for giving them uranium deposits for France’s nuclear program. President Giscard d’Estaing (Bokassa gave him diamonds) called the ogre a friend and even a member of his family, even though he knew the glory that goes with the black emperor. The emperor raged in his African country as best he could. And one day, French paratroopers appeared in front of the Bokassa Palace, after which the emperor lost his throne. He was sent into exile, and the court in his homeland sentenced him to death and deprivation of all property. He died a natural death, useless to anyone.

But will history not joke in the same way with the Ukrainian Bokassa? After all, criminal plots, although limited in number, are sometimes repeated.
