Billionaire Vekselberg wins case against a Swiss bank that closed its accounts

Billionaire Vekselberg won his case against the Swiss bank which closed his accounts

The businessman was sanctioned.

The Federal Court of Switzerland has issued a verdict on the lawsuit brought by Russian businessman Viktor Vekselberg. The leader of the Renova group of companies challenged the decision of PostFinance, a bank in Switzerland, to close his accounts.

The reason for closing the accounts was that the oligarch was doing subject to US sanctions.

According to RBC, Vekselberg opened several accounts at PostFinance in the fall of 2018. One invoice was in euros, the other in Swiss francs. But by then, the billionaire had already been under US sanctions for several months.

After a while, the bank decided to close the accounts, citing “a mismatch between the bank's strategy and the [customer's] profile.”

In 2019, Vekselberg challenged this decision before a court in Bern. But then he was denied satisfaction of the claim, but the Russian appealed.

A federal court ruled that the bank had no right to close the accounts. PostFinance is now required to manage the accounts of the group founder.

In addition, Viktor Vekselberg received compensation of 9,000 Swiss francs. He will be compensated for the plaintiff's legal costs of 8,000 francs. In total, the amount will be about 18 thousand dollars.

Recall that Viktor Vekselberg was under US sanctions in the spring of 2018. Then America drew up a blacklist of men businessmen and officials “close” to Vladimir Putin, accused of interfering in the US presidential elections.

Sanctions have hit Vekselberg hard – more than $1.5 billion have been been frozen.

< p>Viktor Vekselberg's net worth reaches $9 billion, he ranks 20th in the list of the richest Russian businessmen.

As Topnews wrote earlier, in February 2021, Vekselberg complained that he was not allowed to withdraw money from US accounts at a charity.

He also wanted to make a donation to fight the pandemic.


“Miller 'Bent In' Everyone: Media Reported Losses on Gas Carriers Delivering LNG from US to EU

“Miller has it all figured out: Media reports of losses on LNG carriers delivering LNG from US to EU< /p>Analysts have concluded that there is a serious supply crisis.

Analysts have come to the conclusion that it is no longer profitable for gas transmission companies to transport liquefied natural gas shipments from the United States to Europe.

According to “Free Press“ , the price is only one such transport will cause a loss, and is evaluated as negative.

As analysts explain, Europe has already taken 90.8% or 43.4 billion cubic meters of gas from its storage facilities, virtually emptying its gas storage facilities. But it is simply not profitable for gas carriers to transport fuel under current conditions, they have to work at a loss to deliver fuel from across the Atlantic.

The LNG prices are high due to the energy transition that has begun, which has caused a fuel shortage.

The publication notes that tankers travel faster across the Atlantic than across the Pacific Ocean, but they sit idle, as there is not enough fuel to fill the cylinders.


Therefore, every trip results in a loss, despite US claims of record LNG production.

“If your ships are heading to Europe instead of Asia, the trip will be much shorter, so ships will return sooner and be ready to go again. This creates greater availability (more precisely, excess supply) in the transport system,” explained expert “SP”.

According to Bloomberg, LNG deliveries to the Europe were record-breaking in January due to traders using spot prices to send shipments from Asia.

As a result, a large number of ships appeared in the 39;Atlantic.

The problem that arose at the time could be solved by redirecting ships to Asia by a longer route through the Pacific Ocean and thus balancing the interests of fuel producers, its buyers and shipowners. But this requires the launch of 'Nord Stream-2'. And the United States is against.

As a result, the publication comes to the conclusion that “Gazprom” and personally its leader Aleksey Miller, “bent” everyone.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Miller commented on Ukraine's threats to withdraw gas to pay off debt.< /p >

The Central Bank collapsed the stock market, bringing the key rate to 9.5%: the consequences are named

The Central Bank caused the stock market to collapse, driving the key rate to 9.5%: the consequences are named

Analysts criticize the regulator for not having used the most effective method.

The Central Bank of Russia announced that it had raised its key rate to 9.5%. Information about this appeared on February 11 on the site of the regulator.

At the same time, the Central Bank published a new inflation forecast, which will amount to 5 -6% instead of 4-4.5% previously forecast.

The average policy rate, according to information, will be up to 11% in 2022 (previously – up' 39;8.3%). Forecast indicators for the next two years have also increased: in 2023 – up to 7.5-9%, 2024 – 5-6%. analysts report that the Central Bank's decision led to the collapse of the Russian segment of the stock market. So, at noon on February 11, the index of the Moscow Stock Exchange fell by 3.66%, RTS – by 4.48%. “Stolen” down Tinkoff, Sberbank, Gazprom and Magnit.

Recall that the key rate is the annual percentage at which the Central Bank lends to commercial banks and accepts deposits. With a low CV, the level of access to credit for the population is high. Growth can be justified by an attempt to contain ruble inflation.

The indicator rises for the 8th time since March 2021. During this time, it rose from 4.25 % to 9.5%.

According to experts, such actions of the regulator do not help to cope with ruble inflation. As a result, already in February, the price increase can reach 9%. And this, in turn, will increase the interest on deposits and in the future will lead to an increase in consumer demand.

At the same time, there is a extremely negative side for the Russians.

“Such a dynamic” #8230;. hit the mortgage market and, consequently, the housing construction sector”, – says expert “MK” Sergey Suverov (UK “Arikapital”).

Artem Deev, an analyst at Amarkets, told the media that there are other ways to reduce ruble inflation. Thus, he called the increase in the cost of fuels and lubricants, housing and communal services, imports, logistics, labor resources, taxes, excise and duties rights.

At the same time, the increase in the Central Bank will not allow the ruble to stabilize in a short time. It will take several months, against a background of rising world prices for imports, fuel, housing and communal services, to slow the fall of the rouble.

“L'L' most expensive Central Bank money for Russian banks, more expensive loans and higher deposit rates”, – the analyst is sure of it.

So, according to him, lending rates will “rise”; from 0.5 to 1%, mortgage interest will be from 10 to 11%, car loans – from 12 to 14%, consumer loans & # 8211; 15-16%.

Analysts are convinced that the Central Bank's decision will not lead to a recession, but to a further increase in inflation, and a drop to 10% is already possible next spring .

Only the banking sector will benefit from such a decision, which can increase the turnover of loans and profits.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the Central Bank is proposing to introduce a total ban on cryptocurrency in Russia.

European Commission chief called Gazprom affair strange and pointed to Kremlin machinations

Chapter The European Commission called Gazprom's affairs

EU continues to negotiate with US and Norway on alternative supplies .

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen was outraged at the “strange” way of doing business she thinks the Russian company “Gazprom” uses.

According to Reuters, according to der Leyen, record gas prices are recorded in Europe, while the policy of the company, which does not want to increase the supply of blue fuel, is disconcerting.< /p>

In a press conference with the German media, she said that such an economic policy should be seen as the Kremlin's willingness to use fuel supplies as a means of political pressure& #8221;. And there are growing signs of this, says EC chief.

As a result, the European Union continues to negotiate with potential gas suppliers to redirect the flow of fuel if Moscow decides to stop supplies due to strained relations with Europe.

Today, Russia's share of gas imports from the mainland is 40%.

“We are building a partnership”… with the United States, … with other suppliers, for example with Norway,” the head of the EC said.

According to “Gazprom' 8221;, the company's production reached a 13-year high of 514.8 billion cubic meters of gas last year.

Supply to countries outside CEI increased by 5.8 billion on the year to 185.1 billion cubic meters.

The management of the holding, in response to the statements of critics, indicated that the volume of European supplies is the maximum possible within the framework of the contracts already concluded.

Increasing the volume of fuel, a specific buyer is necessary, which will fulfill certain conditions of the contract. The EU agrees that Russia fulfills the contracts, which does not prevent blaming Moscow for its energy crisis.

Russian suppliers indicate that the situation would have been different if Brussels had not given up on long-term contracts. Recall that according to the third energy package he presented, a company is prohibited from occupying more than 50% of the capacity of gas pipelines.

As Topnews has writes earlier, the Russian company has suspended the gas supply from Germany through SE “Yamal-Europe” .
