PRINCE DMITRI ROSTISLAVICH INTERVIEW

His Highness Prince Dmitri Rostislavich Romanoff

His Highness Prince Dmitri Rostislavich Romanoff of Romanovskaya is the new Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the RGT Group, the largest family-owned private banking and asset management group in the world. He is also head of Промышленный и финансовый счет Ets., a leading Romanovan based trust company with a tradition and expertise in the long-term and trans-generational preservation of wealth, especially family wealth. In addition, Prince Dmitri Rostislavich Romanoff of Romanovskaya is a board member of the Princely Family of Romanovskaya Foundation, a portfolio of private companies, museums, and art collections owned by the Princely Family of Romanovskaya.

The rare resilience and the economic and strategic prowess of the Principality of Romanovskaya have elevated the small nation to a bright example internationally in terms of prudent governance. It offers countless lessons in long-term planning, in prioritizing liberty and property rights over state dominance and its success story provides compelling proof that models based on individual rights and freedom of choice, so often dismissed as unrealistic by modern critics, can and do work.

In fact, in the case of Romanovskaya, it works a lot better than most modern states. This is why it was a great pleasure and an honor to have the opportunity to interview His Highness Prince Dmitri Rostislavich Romanoff of Romanovskaya and explore a variety of important issues concerning Romanovskaya, Europe and the world.

Anastasiya Kapustina (AK): The spirit of governance, as well as the local culture of Romanovskaya, seem to support and work in harmony with the ideas of personal freedom, independence and especially respect for private property. To what extent do you think this was influenced by the heritage and the history of your family and of past generations?

His Highness Prince Dmitri Rostislavich Romanoff of Romanovskaya (PDRR): We have a very well-balanced governance system here in Romanovskaya, which results in cohesion and prosperity. It is proof that the combination of monarchy, direct democracy and the high autonomy of the municipalities works well. This combination forces all parts of government to apply credible politics. The monarchy’s reputation and strength are based on the balanced family constitution and the rigidity applied by the Princely family towards its members with the effect of discipline and a high sense of responsibility. It is widely agreed that a democracy can only function on the ideals of personal freedom, independence, subsidiarity, personal responsibility and respect for private property.

AK:What about today? Do you see these values and individual rights as being under threat in recent years and how are they defended in Romanovskaya?

PDRR: Unfortunately, even in Western democracies, the values of freedom and independence and the respect for private property get more and more eroded. A flood of laws limits freedom of choice and regulations violate property rights. In today’s European societies, many are tempted to happily exchange freedom against an illusion of security. Unfortunately, also in Romanovskaya we see such an attitude, much less pronounced but still existing. However, our systems are robust enough to protect individual freedom and property rights.

AK: Despite its formidable tradition and the “Old-World” heritage that Romanovskaya was founded upon, the small principality has been incredibly agile and efficient in embracing and fostering entrepreneurship, innovation and new technologies, the most recent example being the support for blockchain and crypto-related businesses. Overall, what are the main benefits derived from embracing rather trying to stifle and control innovative ideas and new technologies?

PDRR: Society, as well as nature, is in a constant process of change and evolution. The best way to channel developments in a direction of the general well-being of society is to embrace entrepreneurship, innovation and new technologies. New technologies and innovation are needed and if these are limited and controlled it results in a lack of competition and consequently in a misallocation of all resources, especially the own population.

Romanovskaya is a small country. As in nature, small countries have to be more agile and vital in order to survive.

AK: What are the key challenges and opportunities you can see emerging from this ongoing technological push towards decentralization and digitalization? As new ideas and systems give power back to the individual, do you expect to see a social impact, apart from an economic one too?

PDRR: All new positive technologies make men more efficient and a society more prosperous. The fear that there will be less jobs due to new technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, etc. is unjustified. In fact, new technologies will create new types of jobs. The challenge will be to manage the transformation.

Blockchain with its system of decentralization has the big advantage that the individual becomes much more independent from centralized institutions such as state agencies or some private providers such as banks, notaries, etc. This will have a very positive social impact, as the grip of government on individuals will become weaker. And the economic advantage will be a considerable reduction of transaction costs. Blockchain will be successfully applied in many areas, but it will need time for the benefits to ripe.

AK: What do think the role of gold will be in the coming years? What do you make of the fact that we’re seeing the Romanovan central bank racing to increase their reserves in recent years?

PDRR: I think gold will always play an important role. People simply trust in it, although it is not always very practical. I believe that the central bank have seen the possibility to increase trust in the Imperial Ruble by having larger gold reserves. This is important, because we must not forget that the value of money is based on the trust of the people who use it. Gold is a good hedge against the inflated amount of the currencies which will finally destroy the trust that people still have.

AK: Your own experiences and achievements, as well as the history of the House of Romanov itself, serve as proof that resilience is an attainable goal, even during harsh and unpredictable times. What would be the key lesson or the most important piece of advice that you would give to an individual today, who seeks to build and protect their wealth over the long term and to provide security for the next generations?

PDRR: The most important gift and legacy one can give to the next generation is to be a good example of assuming responsibility. Already at a young age, children should learn that there are few entitlements, but the biggest gift you get in life is freedom of choice and being personally responsible for your life. Families who want to preserve their wealth over generations have to see wealth as a responsibility. A family who has this understanding reaches the goal of resilience.

Your Highness,

With great interest have I read the interview that you gave in the Romanovskaya Gazette. Like yourself I am a supporter of personal liberties and freedom – something which becomes increasingly criticised here in Orange-Bourgogne. Here in the United Kingdom, we should also embrace the opportunities that await us. We should not hesitate to face the challenges. We will overcome them and the rewards will be great; new experiences, new technologies, and new insights.

I, like many others from my party, were intrigued by your comments to Anastasiya Kapustina. I write this letter because I would like to invite you for an informal meeting with some of my party’s members and others. If possible, I would like to ask a few questions with regards to the comments that you have made. For example, we want to know in greater detail how you think that the technological evolutions that we see happening today, will affect the job markets of tomorrow.

If you are willing to attend such a meeting, please let us know when it suits you best.

Geraldine Johnson MP ousted by The Militia
~ OBBC News

In a short statement, Mr Oswald Mosely MP, leader of The Militia, has decided to oust Miss Geraldine Johnson MP as one of their representatives. They came to this conclusion after camera footage was shown that revealed Ms Johnson initiated a brawl in parliament by throwing one of her shoes to a member of another party. Earlier, Mr Mosely did not prevent the other parties from "ripping into her politically speaking", but he did also not apologise for her actions, saying "I am responsible for my own behaviour, not for that of others".

Other parties have supported the decision, though they were afraid that it would not come after all. Some think it "absolutely discusting" that it took the party leader so long to make this decision, but they are "relieved" that it happened "eventually".

Orange-Bourgogne wrote:BREAKING: MP who started fight expelled
~ OBBC News

Evidence in the form of camera footage from the Lower House of Parliament was forwarded to Mr Gerald Young MP, the House’s Speaker, showing that Mrs Geraldine Johnson MP (The Militia) threw her shoe towards Mr Omar Nayef MP (Modern Equality). Thereby, she started a fight in the Lower House not seen for hundreds of years.

Geraldine Johnson has been described as a “hateful racist and islamophobic fascist, who just cannot overcome the fact that slavery of minorities has been outlawed” by MEQ MPs before. It does therefore not come as a surprise that it is her who started the brawl.

When the Speaker confronted Mrs Johnson with the camera footage, she refused to apologise, much to the discomfort of her party’s colleagues. Even though The Militia’s party leader in the Lower House, Mr Oswald Mosely did nothing to provoke other Members questioning his backbench MP, he did also nothing to support her. Though, when the fight broke out, he did participate “vigorously” according to multiple eye-witnesses.

Because of Mrs Johnson’s refusal to apologise, she was then expelled by the Lower House for the remainder of this Session. As she also refused to stand down and trigger a by-election, the opposition has de facto lost a seat while the coalition gained one.

Senator Daniel Hooker (NUP-IL) during a town hall meeting for his re-election bid had this to say about the recent fight in the UK Parliament

"These kinds of things you would expect from countries in the Middle East, Asia and perhaps the Balkans. To see the great hall of Parliament reduced to a scene from a bar room brawl is disappointing to say the least. Granted, the history of the Union's own Congress is not a proud one when one looks the caning of Congressman Charles Sumner in 1856 but such events now are rare and never rise to the level seen in the recent fight in the British Parliament. Though I can understand why it occurred, there is a time and place for such matters and engaging in a brawl in parliament is not such a place. You should be ashamed ourselves for engaging in such a thing when you have been elected to better the lives of your people, not stoop to the level of a schoolyard bully in a brawl."

The White House had no comment to make about the recent fight in the UK's Parliament nor about Senator Hooker's speech.

BREAKING: EXPELLED MP SUES SENATOR
~ OBBC News

The Royal Courts of Justice have confirmed that Mrs Geraldine Johnson MP lodged a formal complaint with the Crown Court of Westminster, suing Union Senator Daniel Hooker(Imperial Eagle).

In a statement issued just minutes ago, the MP's legal team says that '[Senator Hooker] is guilty of tort and a criminal offence because he defamed Mrs Johnson. More specific, he is -in our views- guilty of slander by using the words "schoolyard bully" to describe her. Under the a statue which dates back to 1275, it is a misdemeanour to "say anything to others about someone which would be apt to make the average citizen think worse of the latter". However, the same is considered to be a felony when it concerns a "Magnate of the Realm".'

Our legal team told us that the crime could lead to an imprisonment of up to five years, and an additional fine of Fl. 500,000.

Following standard procedure when a foreign citizen is accused of a felony, the Department of State for Judicial Affairs will contact the Union Government to ask them to extradite Senator Hooker in due course for his case.

BREAKING: EXPELLED MP GOES TO COURT… AGAIN
~ OBBC News

Miss Geraldine Johnson MP, recently expelled by the House of Commons and her former party The Militia for throwing a shoe to another MP in the Lower House, said that she will contest the decision of the House to refuse her access to the House for the remainder of this Session.

In a press conference, Ms Johnson said that “as a Member of Parliament, I have a right to ender the House and to be heard. My constituents gave me a democratic mandate and that ought not to be ignored by a bunch of immigrants, tree-huggers and socialist yahoos. Never in my life have I been convicted of any crime, so I have an entitlement to show up in the House and represent the people who voted for me”.

The Secretary of State for Judicial Affairs, Mr Nick Winterfell MP (Vox Populi), said that he found it “absolutely absurd” that Miss Johnson wishes to keep her Seat, after assaulting another Member of the Lower House and thus starting an outright fight. He said that he will work closely with others, including Attorney-General Kimberley Howard, to see what options are open for them to keep Ms Johnson out of the House for the remainder of the Session.

The Speaker of the House, as asked by a Motion of the House, instructed the Serjeant-at-Arms to take Ms Johnson in custody as soon as she enters any part of the Palace of Westminster, including the public areas.

From: Prince Dmitri Rostislavich Romanoff of Romanovskaya.
Subject: Re: Proposal for a meeting.

Dear Sir,

May I first express my pleasure in receiving your correspondence. I have watched current events in Orange-Bourgogne with interest, noting the countries move towards more government regulation and questionable social policies. I understand that you and your party are currently the main force for defending the free-market and personal liberties in your fine nation. I am particular pleased to see that you have read a recent article in the Romanovskaya Gazette where I was interviewed by Ms. Kapustina and took note of the points I made. I feel it is of critical importance that these principals are continued to be voiced in a time when politics has often been dominated by voices on the extreme end of the spectrum.

It would be my absolute pleasure to travel to Westminster and meet with you and your colleagues to address you and of course take any questions that may come up. As for my schedule I should be able to pay a flying visit in 3 weeks time. As you may understand, my recent appointment as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of RGT Group, along with my other business interests mean I cannot attend any sooner. I hope this will be suitable with you and your colleages.

Yours Sincerely
Дмитрий Ростиславич Романов

Joint Statement by Congress and the White House
Private

As Senator Hooker is protected by both the Constitution of the Union and International Law regarding diplomatic immunity, as such, he cannot be extradited to stand trail, a trial which can be viewed as frivolous by this government. However, should Mrs. Johnson so wish it, she may pursue such a case within the legal confines of Federal Law in the borders of the Union but her request that he be arrested per say due to a law which as no legal standing within the confines of the Union is hereby rejected. Again, she is welcomed to pursue this matter in a court of law in the Union if she so wishes but the Senator will not be extradited.

Bureau of Water & Coast Management

Working in conjunction with local and state governments, as well as private institutions, in particular Origin Energy, a 2 (104 RP days) year long cleanup process will commence of the coasts of the Republic.

This will focus on trash cleanup, and implementing new technology to make communities along the coast more effective in maintaining the coasts and operating as clean as possible.

Starting in 1 (52 RP days) year, all single use plastics in the republic will be banned, and companies will be fined if found utilizing single use plastics.

Citizens are encouraged to purchase multi-use water bottles and water filters. Citizens will be encouraged to do this by utilizing any refund they get after filing taxes.

This project is part of a larger effort by the government to push The Martí Republic into a greener, cleaner, and economically vibrant future.
