Kudrin compared the swindler from Yukos with swindlers from Enron

The corporation Enron was one of the biggest sponsors of the pre-election campaign of George W. Bush, but nobody called its dodgy managers “prisoners of conciseness”

On this day, 19 years ago, on August 14, 2003, Alexey Kudrin, the head of the Ministry of Finance of Russia and vice-premier, gave a short commentary on the situation in connection with the affair of the Oil Company Yukos. The Russian vice-premier declared that in the current situation with the company Yukos it was necessary "to wait for the decision of the Court", and in those part which was outside the framework of the court procedures, Kudrin said that the authorities “would find unprejudiced decision”.

Justice is more important than money

Within this context, the head of the Ministry of Finance proposed to call to memory the situation in the United States where, as the result of the corporative scheming and unfortunate deals the energy corporation Enron, unexpectedly for all, had collapsed and had taken leading positions in the history of the scams of the American corporations.

Alexey Kudrin simply brought to recollection the fact that in the United States, as the result of the inner scheming, including with bookkeeping and audit, “that firm went bankrupt, the stock market of the United States considerable fell and is still in fever, and the investments in the American economy during these years has contracted by 300 billion dollars", said the deputy prime minister. Which begs the question: "Was it necessary to expose all the shortcomings so that everything would end like this?" The American authorities, despite losses, did it. Justice is more important than money.

The corporation Enron, as well as Yukos, was actively financing politicians. This corporation was one of the biggest sponsors of the pre-election campaign of George W. Bush. And, curiously, the managers arrested within the framework of this case dodgy didn’t see in this “an effective line of defense” and didn’t declare themselves “prisoners of conscience”. Perhaps, they simply didn’t figure that out to draw to the case “non-indifferent activists” which, given adequate motivation, will make “a victim” out of any swindler, as the Russian reality shows.

In the United States, the tricksters were charged, and now they have to live with such thievish reputation, but in Russia, at the instigation of the State Department, the oil swindler Mikhail Khodorkovsky and the mastermind or murders Leonid Nevzlin are “victims of the political prosecution”, and the organizer of murders Alexey Pichugin is “a prisoner of conscience”.

A cagey American preoccupation

17 years ago, in August 2004, the administration of George W. Bush started to be anxious, having perceived that the Russian law enforcement agencies were seriously dealing with Khodorkovsky and his “transparent” business. The short reports of the information agencies of the American propaganda crossing to the Russian media said that the United States was preoccupied with two things – with the Yukos case and with oil prices. Then the story published in the newspaper "The Washington Times" under the heading "The U.S. hits Russia on Yukos crackdown” explained all.

“The preoccupation” of the United States with the Yukos case had to a great extent an inner character. "The move comes amid criticism of the administration for not doing anything to stop oil's relentless march to $45 a barrel as spiraling demand collides with dwindling supplies worldwide”, pointed out the newspaper.

Like this, the apologists of the "free market" easily and simply demand that the American state interfere and regulate the prices. And most important is the fact that the administration of the US, in trying to do it, keeps calling Moscow “so that the market doesn’t roil.”

“The Yukos affair has become a major factor roiling the market. National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice voiced strong concern about the situation last weekend in a telephone call to Dmitri Medvedev, chief of staff of the Russian President Vladimir Putin”, noted the newspaper. “Similar messages to Russia were expected in coming days from Secretary of State Collin L. Powell, Commerce Secretary Donald Evans and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham”, pointed out the newspaper which, by the way, didn’t forget to mention the worries of the Chinese partners of Yukos with regard to supply.

“We are concerned that the rule of law and due process be respected without influence of political considerations,” State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said yesterday.

This is really American-style – be concerned with “the rule of law in Russia” on the background of the American invasion in Iraq which began in 2003 in order “to overthrow the regime having the weapons of mass destruction." The regime was overthrown, the leader of it was "democratically" hanged, and "the proper lawsuit was organized free of the influence of the political considerations”. The notorious weapon of mass destruction – the main pretext for invasion – still not found.

By the way, in 2002, when the US was only discussing the invasion of Iraq at the UN Security Council level (Russia was against the war), the “peace-loving oligarch” Mikhail Khodorkovsky said that since the Americans want to start a war in Iraq, then “if the US they want Russia to participate in this, someone should also think about some kind of economic compensation. " The economic "compensation" probably meant future oil contracts for Yukos, which never made it to Baghdad. And for Russia, to put it bluntly, oil prices as a kind of “economic compensation” turned out to be quite enough, ”writes Prigovor.ru

(See the previous story: ‘The Financial Times: ‘Many businessmen think that Khodorkovsky openly displays his political ambitions’. Khodorkovsky is a perpetrator of the convention. The Oligarchs 'are fidgeting in their chairs, but they don’t speed themselves to save Khodorkovsky. The website Prigovor.ru reminds its readers of what happened on August 13, 2002, and 2003.
