BlackRock wants the conflict in Ukraine to continue as long as possible because it is “good for business,” a recruiter for the asset management giant told an undercover reporter with Project Veritas successor, O’Keefe Media Group, in a video published on Monday. 

“War is really f***ing good for business,” Serge Varlay, whose since-deleted LinkedIn profile described him as a technology recruiter at BlackRock, told the reporter. He outlined a scenario in which an investor could profit off a surge in wheat prices triggered by the bombing of Ukrainian wheat silos, explaining “volatility creates opportunity to make profit” before editorializing, “It’s exciting when s*** goes wrong, right?”

“We don’t want the conflict to end, as a country,” Varlay continued, noting, “the longer this goes on, the weaker Russia is.” 

Varlay also boasted about his employer’s control of the political system. “It’s not who the president is, it’s who’s controlling the wallet of the president,” he declared, clarifying that it was “the hedge funds, BlackRock, the banks” who “run the world.”

Paul E. Vallely, a retired US Army major general now serving as chairman of the Stand Up America Foundation, says that dangling NATO membership as a carrot in front of Kiev will end in nuclear war.
