The Cossacks found the gold Kolchak
«Kolchak’s gold» that went missing during the Civil war , almost a century does not give rest to experts and treasure hunters. Traces of precious looking for caches in the woods at the bottom of the deepest lake, in foreign banks — a lot of versions. But to this day none of them is to wealth not bring…
But maybe soon, Russia will regain the lost treasure, thanks to the Cossacks, that they were able closer all closer to the mystery, where now 490 tons of gold.
About what did you find out the Cossacks, and where the gold of Kolchak and the Cossacks are planning to dispose of found wealth, we learn from the Deputy Chairman of the Council of Atamans of the Cossack Head of the Counterintelligence Service (MCS), General FSK — Gennady Petrovich Kovalev.

Gennady Petrovich, tell us how was the search for the «Kolchak gold»?
Cossack Counterintelligence Service (MCS), not one year was engaged in search of gold of the Russian Empire. Only when KSK was formed in a full Service network of regional offices in Russia and Abroad, we have been able to piece together all the fragmentary information on this subject, to compare facts, to conduct archival work, test everything on the ground.
We hands was sensational documents. Which was not in Russian archives. Our Cossacks who live Abroad a lot of contact with descendants of Russian immigrants. Part of paper — in French.
Most sensazione documents we have published, for example a rare document issued by the Supreme Ruler of Russia Admiral A. V. Kolchak investigator N.. Sokolov.
Sokolov was appointed to the Omsk District court court investigator for particularly important cases. The first meeting with Admiral Kolchak was held on 5 February 1919, and on February 7 Nikolai started his hard work on disclosing of murder of the Royal Family.
After the death of Admiral Kolchak Sokolov moved to Europe. 16 Jun 1920 Nikolai arrived in Paris, in a suburb which was settled. Here his work continues: he writes a report on the investigation into the murder of the Royal Family for the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.
We gave a copy of the document in the United States the newspaper “Russian America NY” http://www.rusamny.com/2016/508/t04-508/?fbclid=IwAR1kKnPd94ascJCux4g2i8a8Ps9SrBOvBROgkqb3OZSpmQcnwW6BSjYUSSs
A lot of work, our representative in Primorsky Krai and the Far East,the Cossack General Alexander Malanin. We have received documents confirming that a significant portion of the gold reserves of the Russian Empire was transferred to Sweden, and thence to the United States. But several wagons of gold and remained in Siberia.
«Kolchak’s gold» was meant for «Political Meeting» of the organization, which was created by the ambassadors of the Russian Empire, does not recognize the October revolution. In Stockholm, a member of the «Political Meeting» was Konstantin Nikolaevich, Gulkevich. A secret organization of ambassadors, in essence, a collegial government in the White movement. Gulkevich, was coordinator of the white movement in Northwest Russia.
Gold was in the Bank Gothenburg (Swedish.: Göteborgs Bank) is a Swedish commercial Bank, founded in 1848 under the name Götheborgs Privat-Bank. In 1858 the name was changed to Göteborgs Enskilda Bank. In 1903 the Bank was reorganized into joint stock company, and took the name of the Gothenburg Bank. Having absorbed a number of other banks, it had become a major financial institution in Sweden.
The gold was evacuated to Kazan. This is, for various reasons, were taken later gold from Moscow and Samara offices and Tambov branch of the state Bank.
In June 1921, Gulkevich, Vasiliev and Brock escorted the steamer, sailing from Norway to the United States. In its hold, in a special compartment were several dozen sealed boxes. Melted «Kolchak gold», stamped with the Swedish crown, were sent to America.
«As a participant of the financial transaction from the United States became National city Bank. In any case, this is indicated by the documents,» — said the TV company «Zvezda» historian Vladimir Karelin. National city Bank (USA), (English: Citibank (Citi-Bank) is a major international Bank founded in 1807 as the City Bank of New York, then First National City Bank of New York. Already in 1867 he was considered one of the largest banks in the United States, and in 1897 became the first major US Bank created a foreign unit of Anglo Bank of San Francisco. Presumably, this banking institution of the USA was initially registered in 1908, as the London-Paris National Bank of San Francisco. In March 1909, the Bank’s name was changed to The Anglo & London Paris National Bank.
The scheme was simple and reliable. Gold of Kolchak to the trains was heading to Vladivostok (from four to places got three, one was captured and plundered by the ataman Semenov), where their contents were loaded into the cellars of the local branch of the state Bank. And then either directly or through specially created from banks in the U.S., England and Japan, the firm «Syndicate» was the agreement with the foreign partner on the loan or the supply of weapons.
I would like to mention the enormous help of the Cossacks living in America, who met with the descendants of the Cossacks who had served with Kolchak and gathered information.
Gennady Petrovich, why your Service Kontrrazvedki managed to find all this information. not the official structures who is also looking for «gold of Kolchaka».
I think that any kind of formal structure can not focus only in search of a mythical treasure. In addition who is able to interview all the Cossacks, the descendants of the witnesses and participants of those events? Cossacks is a huge social group which is linked in one community, and in the Cossack families cherish and pass on from generation to generation the history of the lives of their ancestors artifacts.
And our employees are the Cossacks, a part of this society, it only remains to know who the ancestors were as involved in this and to tie it all together.
Other explorers looking for gold mainly in Siberia and the far East, we went in another direction. We have studied the lists of prisoners of the concentration camp, Ryazan province, RSFSR 1919-1923 years — about 10 000 persons, it contained
• prisoners of the Civil war 1918-1922. — the ranks of the White armies;
• ranks of the don, Kuban, Orenburg and Terek, Ural Cossack armies;
• prisoners of war national armies
• prisoners of war the ranks of the Polish army;
• political prisoners («counter-revolutionaries», «anti-Soviet», etc.)
Found a few descendants of these people from whom you have learned some information.
This camp was also detained, the NKVD worked in the Department of Gleb Bokii, who were engaged in the search for the «Kolchak gold» in the 20 years of the last century.
All this together led us to success.
Gennady Petrovich, really you can get this gold? That will get some Cossacks or at least personally to those who found him?
You know, Kolchak transferred gold to many countries. But most of the money went to Japan, where the main contractor of the Admiral became «Yokohama-Rush Bank» — the only other Japanese Bank, which had official permission for operations with foreign currency.That’s just the weapons Kolchak, the Japanese did not put. And gold is not returned.
Have all the documents required to demand that Japan return our gold.
Are two Russo-Japanese financial agreement signed in October 1919, the provision of Kolchak government in Omsk loan secured by the pure gold in two consignments, equivalent to 20 million and 30 million yen, about 60 tons of gold. We were looking for these documents around the world, and found in Moscow, including unsorted blockages of the archives of the foreign Ministry. And the originals! The pioneers were graduate students and students of the Diplomatic Academy, the students of Professor Vladlen Sirotkin, shoveled thousands of unexplored documents.
The findings represent two of the loan agreement between the Japanese banking syndicate headed «Yokohama-Rush Bank» and a representative of the state Bank of Russia in Tokyo I. G. by Sechinym, speaking on behalf of the government of Omsk. I stress that there is more to this return: it was the legal agreements of the inter-state level for manufacturing Japanese military arms for the army of Kolchak.
the photo copy of the first page of the Russian-Japanese financial agreement dated 6 October 1919
We kakizaki and service of the Cossack counter-Intelligence can’t claim the money, but the Soviet Union was successor of Russian Empire and all modes on its territory up to the 1920s, inclusive. As under the Paris Convention, the legal successor of the Russian Empire and all modes on its territory were Russian Federation. And article 8, as recorded in agreements dated 6 and 19 October 1919, has not lost its force: «the State Bank of Russia is the administrator of the gold Deposit and on demand may return it from Osaka to Vladivostok, paying only six per cent of the costs of «reverse transfer».
Let me repeat: Russia has the full legal right to demand the return of the collateral of gold.
And our Japanese partners in the course?
— Actually, they never really secret. And before 1925, quietly waiting, it will not require any Soviet Russia the return of the gold deposits in the treaties of 1919. Does not require any recognition of the legitimacy of signed agreements? Not required. And in June, 1927, «Yokohama-Rush Bank» has extended a portion of the collateral of gold in the government assets of 62 million yen. And then every ten years the Japanese were doing this banking transaction, the profit from which went straight to the Treasury. Over the past 90 years has run, the minimum percent, more than six billion US dollars. The approximate cost of the construction of two nuclear power plants.
Gennady Petrovich, then why all these searches?
Well, first of all, we Cossacks do not separate themselves from Russia and Russia’s wealth is our wealth that will be spent on us, and on pensions in particular.
Second, there are still about 100 tons of gold in its natural form is located on the territory of Russia and if we pass it is the state that will receive put us at a legal rate of interest. A lot of money. Enough not only to pozhizneno contain our Cossacks and Service Kontrrazvedki, but also to maintain our Cossacks Abroad.
It remains only to wait until the warm time of the year to an expedition of Cossacks and to verify our conjecture, we have no doubt!
As for gold Kolchak in Western and American banks, I would as suggested by our diplomats to make «politically correct» view that they have not stolen anything. And to do so, as his time in Indonesia. After the Japanese occupation devastated the country did not extort the debt from the former aggressor, and agreed with him about the billions of dollars of investment in the Indonesian economy. They not only represent Indonesia, but also brought along the way in the state Treasury a lot of taxes…
The real «gold of Kolchaka» no. The Russian bullion and coins have long melted. But there is a geopolitical and economic reality, when the ability to negotiate and to compromise any more money. The investment option no one loses.
I think the time has come. The implementation of the «Indonesian version of» investment would be an asymmetric response to U.S. plans non-alternative supplies to the far East overseas shale LNG. And for the Russian economy — a far-Eastern equivalent of «southern gas flow».
