Anguilla, BVI on Russia’s list of ‘unfriendly’ countries amid Ukraine crisis

17

Russia has said all corporate deals with companies and individuals from “unfriendly countries” will now have to be approved by a government commission.

Moscow said on Monday it approved a list of countries and territories taking “unfriendly actions” against Russia, its companies and citizens in the wake of severe economic sanctions over the Ukraine conflict.

The list follows a presidential decree on March 5 allowing the Russian government, companies and citizens to temporarily pay foreign currency debts owed to overseas creditors from “unfriendly countries” in roubles.

According to a government statement, the list includes Albania, Andorra, Australia, Great Britain, including Jersey, Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Gibraltar, European Union member states, Iceland, Canada, Liechtenstein, Micronesia, Monaco, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, San Marino, North Macedonia, Singapore, United States, Taiwan, Ukraine, Montenegro, Switzerland and Japan.

To make such payments, the government said debtors should open a special type of rouble account with a Russian bank and transfer the rouble equivalent of the foreign currency amount owed, according to the central bank’s official exchange rate on the day of payment.

This temporary arrangement for paying foreign debts applies to payments exceeding 10 million roubles ($76,000) a month.

Russia’s war on Ukraine has been met with outrage from the international community, with the EU, UK, and US, among others, imposing a range of economic sanctions on Moscow.

Hundreds have been killed in Ukraine since Russia launched its war on February 24, according to United Nations figures, with the real toll feared to be significantly higher.

More than 1.7 million people have fled Ukraine to neighbouring countries, according to the UN refugee agency.

        • Anguilla wouldn’t have had a problem with Russia if they didn’t take sides against Russia. This is a problem of their own making.

      • Angel of Darkness, you appear to be a propagandist for Putin and his buddy, the twice-impeached, defeated, ex-president of the USA. You are entitled to your opinions, but you are not entitled to your own made-up “facts”. You’ll be challenged on it every time. As for Putin: GET YOUR GRUBBY LITTLE HANDS OFF OF ANGUILLA AND THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS!!!

        • You mean Ukraine, the money laundering capital for the globalist bastards that want to enslave the whole world?
          Do you actually think they care about you? YOU are what they refer to as a ‘useful idiot’!

        • Where was the rest of the World when Palestine was getting bombed and devasted by its neighbour? Where was the rest of the world when Irag was getting invaded and bombed. Oh yes, they were siding with the aggressor!

    • Glory to Ukraine or what will be left of it if it does not negotiate a peaceful settlement with Russia. Why can’t Ukraine agree to be a neutral country and don’t allow nuclear weapons and missiles in their country directed at Russia? Russia will never allow these weapons on its border just like the USA would never allow these weapons in Mexico or Cuba. Russia is no worse than the US, they both protect what they perceive to be their interest. America can have their hypocritical chat, but their bombs and sanctions have destroyed more independent countries than Russia. What is the greater interest of the USA? Destruction of Russia or making peace?

  1. Antigua selling her soul to the despot Putin! Too much reliance on foreign investments from so many dodgy individuals and criminal greed is rife. When the war starts to affect Antigua then maybe there will be a stand. In the meantime enjoy IGNORANT BLISS. Your children and elders are not likely to be bombed!

    • YOU have already sold your soul to Kim Jong Un! The north korean demons are coming out your pores.

    • Free, Antigua not selling anything, G-Ass-Ton is. And the people here letting him do it. One day, their children will have no land to claim and eventually no country.

    • Besides the Astrazenica out of India, which country offered vaccination to Antigua? Both Russia and China provided assistance before the USA did. Only when excess was in the USA that they provided assistance.
