Colour me shocked that Putin is putting his oar in.

Cyprus is the biggest outside investor in Russia. Let me restate that Cyprus, an island of just over a million people invests more in Russia than any other country in the world that includes China, UEA, America, Germnay and every one else.

So Putin doesn't want to see all that money that his friends have hidden from the Russian tax man taken from them and the Cypriot polititions don't want to upset the Russians who have paid them off.

Given that this only involves the Greek cypriotic part, I wonder if they're to made an example of.


Be eaten by Turkey, Russia, whatever.

Bet Greece proper will swallow the pill.

I just showed "Galaxy Quest" to my ST:NG loving daughter. The movie holds up very well and it has quite the cast.

Norfolking Chance: Cyprus is the biggest outside investor in Russia. Let me restate that Cyprus, an island of just over a million people invests more in Russia than any other country in the world that includes China, UEA, America, Germnay and every one else.


Not terribly surprising...

As a result, in the third quarter of 2012 (the last period for which data from the Russian Central Bank are available), Cyprus was Russia's second biggest source of foreign direct investment after Luxembourg. Since 2007, more than $114 billion has flowed into Russia from the small Mediterranean nation, practically all of it Russian money paid as dividends by Cyprus- registered holding companies and reinvested into Russian production assets.

A man on CNBC remarked yesterday that if the bank levy went through he expected the Cypriots to be dealt with "efficiently" by Russian organized crime. Zhirinovsky basically acknowledges the same when he's quoted in the article linked above saying, "We do not gloat about it because it's mainly our depositors and it's our nation's money regardless of how they made it here."
