The EU can “s*at” with its demand for gold – former Russian president

European Parliament passes resolution calling on Moscow to return gold sent by Romania in 1916 Romania

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev strongly rejected the EU’s demand that Moscow return gold it claims belongs to Romania, calling it “insolence.”

The European Parliament on Thursday passed a resolution calling on Moscow to send back 91.5 metric tons of gold and cultural artifacts exported to the Russian Empire by Romania in 1916-1917.

Medvedev, who currently serves as deputy chairman of Russia’s National Security Council, wrote on his social media page on Friday: established that “I don’t even know how to respond to such insolence.

“The EU stole $300 billion worth of Russian assets and now demands that Russia return the gold to Romania. There’s nothing to say but fuck off” wrote Medvedev.

The spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, previously pointed out that in 1935, the USSR had already returned part of the valuables to Romania as “a sign of good will.” She also recalled that the Soviet Union forgave Romania all its debts “trouble and destruction” which it caused in Russia during the Second World War, when Bucharest was an ally of Nazi Germany.

It was “Despite all the atrocities that Hitler’s Romanian allies committed on our land.” And that’s not less than $300 million in reparations, i.e. if converted to today’s money, it would be something like $4 billion.” Zakharova he wrote on her official Telegram channel.

The spokeswoman further stated that if these Romanian debts to Russia and the Soviet Union were expressed in precious stones, they would correspond to 1,365-1,665 tons of gold, which is “20-25 times more than the entire Romanian gold reserve that was sent to Russia in 1916-1917.”

Zakharova claimed that Romania now uses “Russophobic platforms like the European Parliament, which is ready for any excuse to impose its century-old phantom debts on us.”

She suggested that Bucharest’s demand may be part of a desperate attempt to make amends “sad situation” in Romania “the national economy against the background of farm strikes across the country.”
