Russia is determined to have its own National Payment System…

Goodby MasterCard and Visa!

visa-mastercardThree years ago I talked about this happening and I also talked about the fact that America pleaded with Russia not to destroy the Visa and MasterCard system in Russia. Russia had a mind to set up its own system and it looks like in a few months this system will go online. That is what happens when you bully a country that can handle life without you…

This system has silently been progressing as Russia has watched the games played by America and how America sanctions everyone at the drop of a hatpin…

Last week as a few games were played by the US and they interrupted the Visa and MasterCard workings in Russia. That interruption did not cause a problem, it caused a determination to end the connections financially with the west. So Russia put their program, which already has at least four big banks ready to implement the program, on fast track again. I doubt seriously that anyone will listen this time to the cry’s from America about shutting down the Visa and MasterCard systems. They hung themselves out to dry, when they tried to sanction Russia and then backpedaled as they said, “Oops a mistake was made!”

“Sorry Charley!” as we say…

russiancard“The payment system PRO 100 is technologically ready to provide national processing in the near future. We estimate it will take a couple of months, as key Russian banks, that account for more than 40 percent of the market, are already linked to the PRO 100 payment system,” Andrey Nesterov, director of corporate communications at the Universal Electronic Card said on the local news…

Yes: This is what happens when you keep attacking the world and acting like you are the savior of the universe. America needs to do a rethink and re-strategy, to escape the death throes that it is starting to exhibit…

Want to bet that Visa and MasterCard whine and cry like children, as they find that they will lose a huge multiple billions and billions of dollars, accounts…

Keep those sanction going America, because Russia will, “Drop you like a hot potato…”

Krypetsky Monastery of Russia… (10)

Krypetsky Monastery

Krypetsky Monastery is located about 23 km from Pskov, Russia. The monastery was originally all wood when it was built in around 1485.  Then in 1547 it was torn down and rebuilt as it stands today, all in stone. Very famous monks lived at this monastery: Basil, St. Nilus, Afanasy Ordin-Nashchokin and Evgeny Bolkhovitinov…

Around 1918, the monastery was closed down by the Bolsheviks who plundered more than 2,600 troy ounces of gold from the monastery and almost tore the bell tower down. The monastery was finally reinstated back into the Russian Orthodox Church in about 1991…

It is even said that it was even revived as a German monastery for a brief while. This happened during World War Two. The monastery has now been repaired and is back in decent shape again. I know this is most likely true because I see a bunch of German references to the monastery in history checks…

Lets hope that this and all the other monastery’s that have had such a rough life surviving in Russia over the years, stay in good shape from now on…
