UPD: 24/09/2014 UK threatens to sue FIFA for giving Russia and Qatar the right to World Cup
The FIFA decision to grant Russia and Qatar the right to host the World Cup caused a resonance in the world community. In particular, British parliamentarians suspect the main football organization of corruption.
This is written by the BBC.
The British MP from the Conservative Party Damian Collins said that he intends to seek the publication of a report on the investigation of the circumstances of getting Russia and Qatar the right to host the 2018 and 2022 World Championships.
"FIFA seems to believe that it is a self-governing body that operates outside the jurisdiction of international and national law enforcement agencies," Collins wrote.
After repeated statements in the media that Russia and Qatar got the right to the world championships thanks to the corruption scheme. American lawyer Michael Garcia initiated an investigation, which was completed in early September.
In turn, the FIFA management stated that the results of the investigation will not be published until the spring of 2015, when the organization will sign new sponsorship contracts for the 2018 World Cup and World Championship-2022.
Previously, to take away from Russia the right to hold the championship was demanded by representatives of the majority in the German parliament.
Supporters of such a step argue that it could become "more effective than sanctions." With an appeal to boycott the tournament was made and the ex-coach of the Netherlands team John van't Schip.
Meanwhile, the International Football Federation has rejected the idea of boycotting the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
UPD: 24/09/2014 Chinese banks have begun to refuse Russians to service offshore accounts
Chinese commercial banks began to deny Russian clients the transfer of funds through offshore accounts.
As ITAR-TASS informs referring to the letter from the bank available to the agency. Russian businessmen and experts believe that the refusals are caused by the fear of deteriorating relations with the US due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
According to Alexander Zainigabdinov, the head of the Beijing office of the Window to China consulting group, in the last two weeks, letters to clients of the group have come to inform about the closure of accounts, as the company located in China cooperates with Russia.
"We regret to inform you that you must come to us in order to close your bank account. As your company has something to do with Russia, we can not service you anymore, "says a letter from the" offshore accounts department "of the Chinese commercial bank Ping An, addressed to the commercial company. There it is also proposed to transfer all funds to another bank account.
On the websites of a number of companies specializing in the opening of offshore accounts in China, there are announcements that the provision of the service is temporarily discontinued.
According to Zainigabdinov, a significant amount of profit of Chinese banks comes from operations with the United States.
"Therefore, the Chinese began to exercise excessive caution in working with Russia not to be accused of financing Russian companies by terrorists in Ukraine," the expert believes.
Companies registered in Hong Kong or offshore may open accounts in a number of Chinese banks that are withdrawn from the currency controls of Chinese regulators. These accounts are a popular settlement mechanism for trading with China. After payment, the company that received the goods delivers it to its Russian partners.
Most of the intermediary companies involved in this trade scheme between Russia and China are controlled by Russian owners. Hong Kong is part of China, but has a wide autonomy and its own currency. A group of Chinese banks, working in this way with Russian clients, includes Ping An, China Merchants and Bank of Communications.
In the light of sanctions from the US and EU, due to the events in Ukraine, representatives of Russian authorities and businessmen have announced plans to expand trade and economic cooperation with China and other Asian countries.
