I'm trying to put together the pieces of the puzzle to see who the mystery company that the SCO is going after. The lead to this story is from Palmer Report.

Update: Then again, there's another bank also linked to Sberbank, SVB or Silicon Valley Bank. Its part in this is linked to a FISA warrant related to surveillance of Trump Tower, specifically conversations between Mike Flynn and Jared Kushner. Coincidentally too is that Cambridge Analytica's name comes up when mentioning hacked DNC E-mail along with SVB. Flynn is linked to Cambridge Analytica. (see bottom)

Russia’s largest bank just launched a state-of-the-art coding school to ease dependence on Western tech

Sberbank, which is currently under U.S. sanctions and whose CEO has ties to Trump
, launched School 21 in Moscow last week.

1. Don't take the Palmer Report too seriously, it is not a reliable source.

6. Trump Lawyer Kasowitz Defends Russian Gov Sberbank; Sberbank Was To Fund Trump Tower Moscow

Trump Lawyer Kasowitz Defends Russian Gov Sberbank; Sberbank Was To Fund Trump Tower Moscow

Trump’s longtime lawyer Marc Kasowitz is representing Russian Govt owned Sberbank against accusations of corporate raiding, even as he represents Trump in the Russiagate case. Apparently, Sberbank agreed to fund an Agalarov project which might include a Trump Tower in Moscow. Sberbank is also a major owner of KAMAZ, which is a long-time partner to Cummins where US VP Pence’s brother is also VP.

Yesterday the New York Times reported re the Agalarovs of Trump, Jr. email infamy:m ”The elder Mr. Agalarov had been talking with Mr. Trump about building a Trump Tower in Moscow as part of a $3 billion real estate project involving hotels, a shopping center and office space.

Sberbank was ready to make it happen…..”

<snip>

KAMAZ is a longtime partner of Cummins where US VP Pence’s brother is a VP. KAMAZ is part of Rostec State Corporation, one of a handful of Russian companies which are directly owned by the Russian Federation and who answer more directly to Putin than some Russian state owned entities.

Currently the Russian government owns 73.4% of KAMAZ via Rostec at 49.9%, 51% Russian government owned Sberbank - Mining Awareness


Oh yes, Mike Pence, the former governor of Indiana, headquarters of Cummins Diesel whose VP up until 12/8/17 was Ed Pence, Vice President Mike Pence's brother.

5. There's a connection too between Sberbank, Putin, and Ukraine as well.

I get the impression that Sberbank & VTB may be the two evil Russian empire companies trying to take over the world or something.
