In 2021, Alexei Navalny returned to Russia which sparked protests against the Putin Regime. The West announced limited sanctions which do not hit any of Putin’s Oligarchs. Seeing that the Western governments are completely corrupt and incompetent, Putin amassed a military force near the border with Ukraine perhaps planning a full military push into Europe. The West still hasn’t woken up to the threat of the EBRD which remains Putin’s top disinformation and money-laundering tool. Proof that the EBRD is running a fraud racket with the Latvian government to protect Putin’s bankers has been openly available since 2010 but for some reason no government officials and no mainstream journalists from any country are able to mention it. We at LawlessLatvia keep spreading the truth on as many websites as possible with hopes that officials in Washington/London/Brussels might wake up. The EBRD fraud, and therefore Putin’s money-laundering network, can be shut down in a day just through exposure.  2021 efforts featured not only articles about this fraud, but also a movie and a book.

6 Dec 2021, ‘KGB Banker’ is Gold Sponsor of Offshore Alert! John Christmas explained the EBRD fraud at Offshore Alert in 2015. All of the journalists in attendance refused to publish articles about the fraud and refused to explain why. Therefore the fraud is still continuing in 2021 and we are happy at least Offshore Alert believes the public should know about large frauds which hurt millions of victims. Thank you Offshore Alert!
