Koryagina, Tatyana Tatyana Koryagina, Financial Crisis Will Sweep Away Governments address to Russian Duma June 29,2001.   Following the Sept. 11 attacks, Dr. Koragina was reinterviewed and asserted the "powerful group" behind the attacks will make new strikes. "When [Americans] understand after the upcoming, new strikes, that their government can guarantee them nothing, they will panic - causing a collapse of their financial system."  Asked who was really behind this odious plan, she replied it is not the 19  terrorists identified by the FBI but rather a larger group seeking to reshape the world. She said this group of extremely powerful private  persons hold total assets of about $300 trillion and intend to legitimize their power under a new global government.
