Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias believes that we have a nonviable economy built on deception. “The modern economy is built largely on fraud, it creates money out of thin air”, Patriarch Kirill said in a speech on Saturday at Dnepropetrovsk National University. He pointed up that money is “a token of human labour and of our God-given resources, such as coal, ore, and oil, along with our intelligence, physical labour, culture, and spirituality”. However, today, according to the patriarch, “every company produces its own money in the form of shares, which is passed onto the secondary market, becoming not just simple securities; they are traded and used as items of speculation. If these mere phantasms earn billions, not even backed by labour or real capital, then, how can such an economy exist? Who going to pay for all of this? Why, the simple worker [is going to], who produces the value behind all of this bubble”. He is convinced that we need “a fair economic system where money and capital are equivalent and are the expression of real work”. Patriarch Kirill arrived in Dnepropetrovsk on Saturday. Speaking with reporters at the airport, he said that the city is renowned for its technical expertise. The patriarch said that Dnepropetrovsk is the third city in the Ukraine [in size], but the first in its impetus to innovative development”. In his opinion, the local population professed Orthodoxy for centuries, “it was faithful for many centuries, it based its outlook on life and its relationship with the outside world [on the principles of Orthodoxy]. His Holiness asked the residents of Dnepropetrovsk and its surrounding region “to keep this marvellous, great, and humane tradition of strong faith and strong knowledge”.

Who woulda thunk it! It’s Big Green Weenie time at Interfax again… My version has 281 words in the main body, whilst the Interfax version has 135. One of these things is not like the other… on top of that, the Interfax translator rendered “fraud” as “eyewash”. OUCH! Who are they trying to fool? Holy Moly… this layabout is being PAID for this… in my more peevish moments, I almost think that Matusiak is the translator, it’s incompetent enough and slothful enough to come from his hand… but, I must be fair… he’s not the only dogsbody apparatchik drone on the face of the planet.
SHAME ON YOU, INTERFAX. FIRE THIS BOOB!
