Beware the FSB

The use of offshore companies including Arivust Holdings in Cyprus by Russian government officials, including many from the FSB, to stash their stolen taxes is well known. When Russian lawyer Sergey Magnitsky exposed a €175 million tax theft by tax department husband and wife team Olga Stepanova and Vladlen Stepanov he was promptly murdered. 

The EU in this case has been the irritant the Kremlin has tried hard to disregard. Von Rumpy's Human Rights Council's working group has been carrying out its own investigations into Magnitsky's murder, and the fragrant Catherine Ashton's External Action Service has been dogging the steps of the stolen taxes from Russia into EU banks and then into property. The Russians have treated Ashton's enquiries as risible; in response to requests, Russian interior ministry spokeswoman Irina Dudukina said the state cannot trace any of the funds in the Magnitsky-exposed tax fraud because a truck containing the relevant documents had "exploded."

However, a haircut on Cypriot accounts will be taking money directly from the pockets of Russia's most senior corrupt officials - and the FSB are involved up to their necks. 

With no fear of carrying out high-profile international assassinations to underscore their point, they may be considering how much the West would care if either, say, Catherine Ashton or Herr Von Rumpy were tied to a chair and thrown into a swimming pool ...

The "fragrant" Catherine Ashton .. not quite the term I would use ;0)

And Von Rumpy, hmmmm ... he'd be well advised to avoid any Eastern European looking type if they happen to be carrying an umbrella.

I've just eaten lunch. Was it really necessary to post those photographs?

Those two portraits really do seem to encapsulate the EU. Perhaps they should be shown on every Euro note and coin, much as our own dear Mrs Queen graces the Sterling equivalents.

There have been stranger suicides....

That woman is truly ugly, that man is truly odd. Surely the photos were digitally manipulated, either that or Michael Jackson's cosmetic surgeon found a new set of clients when his money supply dried up!

Hilarious! No, not just the replies; the throwing of Ashton and Rumpy into a swimming pool.

Tied to each other. And then lead weights.

Nobody would even notice they had gone.

"Oleg Zhukovsky, December 2007. Zhukovsky was an executive of the VTB bank, which at the time of his death was being taken over by the state so the Kremlin could hand-pick its senior officers to oversee many strategic state accounts. Zhukovsky allegedly performed the feat of committing suicide by being tied to a chair and thrown into his swimming pool, where he drowned."

As a fantasy it has a lot to recommend it but much as I find these two as distasteful as the rest of the EU claque, I can't actually accept that (allegedly) Russian crooks and thugs should ever be allowed to murder our people to protect their own ill-gotten gains. Our ruling thugs and crooks need to be brought to book by our rule of law, otherwise we are back to the most dangerous forms of civilisation.

Agreed...

We should hang /shoot our own!

I trust that Nigel Farage will read out his obituary to these two in the European Parliament.

I trust there would no lifeguards on hand to assist?

Well, I know that's the ugliest female of any species on the planet ... but: I'm not sure I want to soil my hands with its blood.

Anyway, you, know - are we sure it's really ours? There's a strange resemblance between the 2 phizzogs. Are they related? Or is it just the evil in their euro souls: they can't hide it?

To quote Dennis Skinner (I think) "I wouldn't want to see the picture in her attic".

"because a truck containing the relevant documents had "exploded."

Such open contempt is all Ashton & Rumpoy deserve.
(Love the 'ashtonunderrumpy' tag btw).

Hopefully there will be 20 lifeguards there, who are unable to assist because of health and safety.

Looks like Cyprus may leave the euro and be rescued by Russia. There are after all, massive gas deposits offshore. And the Russians will get a naval base there. THAT will really alter tensions in the area.....

It should come as no surprise to anyone if it were discovered that the fabled Russian Mafia money in Cyprus had disappeared before the owners could receive their haircuts
