fragMasterFlash: Did Russian banks ever end up getting kicked off of the SWIFT network?


I think so. A coworker was upset that he couldn't send money to his "Russian girlfriend" and his bank closed his accounts.

MrSplifferton: 'phony claims'

uggh, I wish they used a different phrase than that.  They used fraudulent earlier, they could have stuck with that.  I feel like I could go a life time without hearing the term 'phony' again.

Jojo_TheDogFacedBoy: kittyhas1000legs: fragMasterFlash: Did Russian banks ever end up getting kicked off of the SWIFT network?

"In March, the US and the EU cut off seven Russian banks from SWIFT. They included state-controlled VTB, Bank Rossiya and Bank Otkritie. Russia's biggest bank, Sberbank PJSC, was allowed to stay on SWIFT, as was Gazprombank JSC, a key bank for Russia's energy conglomerates. On June 3, the EU added three more banks including Sberbank, which has twice as many assets as any other bank in Russia."

I think we need to rescind visas and kick Russians out of western countries and back to Russia. Rather than let them hide they need to go topple their government.


they said the same thing about Syrian refugees  "tHeY sHuD fIx tHeRe oWn cOuNtRy".

Maybe we could keep them here, but maybe interned somewhere where they won't be a danger to themselves.  make it an adventure, like camping.

Maybe other countries should kick out Americans because we haven't done enough to fix *our* country.

fark is a cesspool, that's for certain but 11+ people smarting that statement is one of the most appalling things ive read in some time.

AmbassadorBooze: ...All countries should kick out foreign nationals.  "But what about the diplomats!OMG!". The diplomats can use encrypted text messages or zoom. Why do they have to actually touch each other?  Is the sensual touch of one diplomat upon another really what gets things done?

"But tourism!".  Same thing.  Use a VR headset.  Having people travel the world for fun expends carbon resources.  The people should stay home and grind resources for the elites.

"But commerce!". You got me there.  Have ports and airports be neutral zones.  But the crews stay on board.  The cargo bay doors are opened up and goods are take off or loaded on.  Ideally by robots.  So that nationals of one nation don't mix with others.

"But what about genetic diversity".  Ship frozen sperm around.  Have the chosen out breeders turkey baster the jizz into the baby maker.

Costs to providing support for the Russian annexation claim, inside and outside of Russia?

Oh, please be secondary sanctions on people who receive payment from Russia in the States.

I would love to shake that tree and see who falls out.
