Short introduction: Recetly some russian newspapers talked about airplane, lost in Moscow Sheremetevo airport. And this airplane was claimed to be full of Euros in cash, up to 20 billions (20 000 000 000, 200 wooden pallets with €20bn in €100-notes). There are some english versions of the story: b.insider, news au, rtbh or just google for koroorian motlagh or Farzin Motlagh.
But today the RBC Daily posted a story about origin of such amoutns of money and my question is about this publication:
- (in russian) Россиянин раскрыл тайну самолета с 20 млрд евро на борту
- (short english version) RBC Daily: 677 million Iranian petrodollars mysteriously disappear in Azerbaijan
- also referenced here: The €20bn mystery: Could Iran be the owner of huge cash stash at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport?
There is unreferenced claim:
the story began when the United States and Iran were still friends, and the Americans were buying oil from the Iranians. At the beginning of 90s Americans being tired of carrying dollars to Iran offered to send them two U.S. Federal Reserve System officers along with a printing machine, for the Iranians to print for themselves as much dollars as oil is delivered. This scheme worked until the nuclear program of Iran started to bother the United States. The Americans immediately canceled all the contracts and took the machine back. ... Then the Iranians began to think, what to do with these dollars which amounted to six trillion
(and in russian)
США и Иран дружили, а американцы покупали у иранцев нефть. В начале 90-х американцы устали перевозить им доллары (Иран признавал только наличку) и предложили: давайте мы отправим вам двух офицеров Федеральной резервной системы США вместе с печатным станком, дадим клише, и вы будете печатать себе доллары сами. Сколько нефти поставили, столько и напечатали. Эта схема работала до того момента, пока ядерная программа Ирана не стала мешать США. Американцы тут же расторгли все договора и забрали станок. ... Тогда иранцы стали думать, что делать с этими долларами, а было их шесть триллионов.
There is additional claim in russian text: "(Iran accepted only cash)"
Then the claimed scheme was stopped due to Iranian nuclear program, and money was converted with help of Russia, Germany and Italy. Dollars were converted into euros in Frankfurt.
Are there evidences that:
- USA payed Iran in cash for petroleum.
- It is possible to USA to send FRS officers and dollar-printing machine to other country. Even to Iran?
- It is possible to print 6 trillions dollars outside the USA.
