Russia is not dumb at all, taking all that IMF money and transforming it into gold.

Russia is also one of the world's largest supplier of armaments and weapons systems to customers like China, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Algeria, Syria, Cuba etc.
I don't doubt that the Russians might use their profits from defense systems to cause problems for the massive short position by western bullion dealers, mines and banks in gold. If this is part of the strategy to economically destablize the west by contributing to the gold squeeze, I would look for similar announcement by China and others, India?

This past October I was at a conference in San Diego where I spoke privately to a guy who used to be high up at the Treasury and the head of the Bureau of Printing and Engraving. He says we send a planeload of crisp $100 bills over to Russia DAILY! A BIG PLANE! Some sort of bribe. They must be using these to buy the gold.
