Donetsk Republic announced that they had uncovered secret plans for a new massive attack on Donetsk and Lugansk by Kiev.
I have translated/summarised the urgent announcement by DNR Defence Spokesman, Eduard Basurin.
DNR received this secret intel from high level sources within Kiev army ranks.
Kiev amassed 90,000 troops on Ukraine/DNR-LNR (Novorossia) border, preparing to attack. This armed force includes 450 tanks, 2500 armored vehicles, 5 heavy rocket launchers Tochka-U and thousands in various artillery hardware. This army has been concentrated in four key locations. Mariupol, to attack Donetsk from the south; central to attack Donetsk from the west; third one to cut off Donetsk from Lugansk and fourth to attack Lugansk from the north. The reserve group is located behind these four army groupings. The north and south groupings will also cut off LNR and DNR from the Russian border in order to stop humanitarian assistance and close the circle around both republics, thus suffocating them.

On August 24, Ukraine celebrates its independence day. According to intel, today Poroshenko (oligarch, president), Yatsenyuk (oligarch, PM) and Klichko (boxer, mayor of Kiev) will announce a coalition of their three parties in order to run together in the upcoming local elections.
Ukraine will have local elections in October. Poroshenko’s ratings are down and even his former cronies distrust him. The right sector is threatening to start maidan-3 at any moment. Attempts to start a new maidan have been made by various groups, mainly protesting the economic collapse, shortages, hyperinflation and unemployment. However, every protest attempt has been squashed.
But anger and severe disappointment are brewing all over Ukraine. One day they will boil over.
Yatsenyuk’s rating is basically zero. So is Klichko’s, who can hardly string two words together and therefore is considered unfit for office. However, these three have a muscle in the form of their parties, which they lavishly finance out of those billions they stole.
Yatsenyuk is the darling of the US and Klichko is Angela Merkel’s personal protegé. Poroshenko used to be a compromise figure, convenient for both US and EU. But it appears that time has passed as no one accepts him well any more. However, Poroshenko’s ability to cling to power cannot be underestimated. He will do anything to hang on. The alternative is basically the international tribunal for crimes against humanity. Yatsenyuk and Klichko are in the same boat.
At the same time, they all have done very well for themselves, having looted what they could from the country. Oligarch Poroshenko’s wealth went up 7-fold in his one year of presidency (I had a video about that) and Yatsenyuk is now officially a dollar billionaire.
However, these three know they would lose these local elections in many regions. This is why they must try to unite.
My intel says that people in cities of Kherson and Nikolaev (south/Black Sea area) would prefer the Opposition Block. It consists of sort of remnants of the Party of the Regions and certain minor oligarchs who are for better relations with Russia, while also maintaining closer relations with the EU. In addition to the above, there are also some relatively honest people in the Opposition Block.
In Odessa, if elections were semi-honest (and this is a huge IF), the winners could be the pro-Russian, pro-Odessa-autonomy, anti-Kiev party Rodina (Motherland), and possibly also Opposition Block. Rodina is one of the main forces still legally remaining in opposition. They used to have good positions in the city council, however, many of them had to flee Ukraine and are now in exile.
A few do remain, such as my favorite Odessa politician, Grigory Kvasnyuk. Generally, there are very few opposition leaders still remaining in Odessa, who are still capable of staying afloat in today’s environment. Kvasnyuk, for instance, is constantly called to SBU for interrogations. Some of those who were able to provide a meaningful opposition perished in the May 2, 2014 fire on Kulikovo Polie, some were chased out of the country, some thrown in jail. Same picture is true for any other region of Ukraine.
However, Rodina still presents a danger to powers that be. This is why its leader, former Rada deputy Igor Markov was recently arrested by Interpol (!) in Italy, where he was on vacation, based on a trumped-up charge that he caused public disturbance in Odessa in 2007 (8 years ago!). This charge had been overturned several times by various courts, but it still get manipulated for political reasons.
The primary reason for the attack on Markov is his joining of the Committee for the Salvation of Ukraine co-organized by him, ex-PM of Ukraine Azarov and ex-Rada deputy Oleynik. The arrest, which will be overturned eventually, still will slow down the preparation for local elections and discourage the beheaded party Rodina. This is what Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk are counting on. Odessa remains a trouble spot and a huge sore for the Kiev junta, despite putting Georgian ex-president and wanted criminal Saakashvili in charge of Odessa oblast. Everything will be done to prevent decent people from being elected into city council.
Generally, Odessa is very oppressed and suppressed; people are afraid to speak up. The situation is very similar in Kiev, Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk.
The situation in Donbass is the following: Donbass is roughly divided into two halves. One half belongs with Donetsk and Lugansk Republics and another half is under junta occupation. We all remember that on May 11, 2014, the people of then Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts in their entirety voted in a referendum against Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, and for their independence. That was well before the war started.
It is understood that people all over the occupied parts of Donbass will vote for those candidates who are the closest to the Republics and furthest from the junta. This may create the situation in which these areas are formally under Kiev, but de-facto a part of LNR and DNR.
Widespread electoral fraud is also expected throughout Ukraine. However, my intel suggests that Russia, Eurasian Union and SCO are sending large election monitoring delegations to each polling station on the occupied territory of Donbass. Therefore, at least in Donbass fraud may be very hard to execute.
That’s why Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and Klichko are scrambling to join forces, attempting to boost their numbers. However, this will likely not help their chances. They are risking losing the rest of Donbass without a single shot fired, based on democratic elections.
This is one of the main reasons for the intensified shelling of Donetsk: Poroshenko and his puppet masters are attempting to make DNR and LNR lose their cool and counter-attack. After that, DNR/LNR get accused of breaking Minsk accords and the new round of sanctions against Russia begins.
According to my intel, if DNR/LNR don’t lose their cool, watching their peaceful population being bombed every day, Kiev plans to re-start war by beginning its own massive attack, as seen above. In either event, the escalation of conflict will allow Kiev to cancel local elections.
The plan is multi-prong and multi-layered, according to the best CIA playbook. The biggest prize is always Russia. The ultimate goal, if DNR/LNR are attacked full force and Minsk agreements are broken, is a renewed attempt to make Russia lose her cool and send troops to protect Donbass.
We know it was attempted multiple times since last year in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa. The latest provocation this summer was to fully blockade Pridnestrovie, where Russian peacekeepers and at least 100,000 Russian citizens reside. That was a very dangerous moment, which I watched very closely.
The Pridnestrovie blockade was orchestrated by the US agents Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk together with Romania, in order to drag Russia into an open war. However, it didn’t work out due to several skillful maneuvers by Russia and EU. Instead of Ukraine, Moldova opened its borders for Russian supplies, thus releasing pressure, at least temporarily.
The story of Pridnestrovie is still very convoluted and the next big problem is anticipated in December, 2015. All this is connected to the general Black Sea geopolitical fault line that is ripening at this time. I am watching it and will probably do a piece or two on it later in the year. Stay tuned!
Today Ukraine is celebrating its independence-from-Russia day. Some call it: ‘the independence from the common sense day.’
After participating in early celebrations and officially announcing his alliance with Yatsenyuk and Klichko, Poroshenko will the same day fly to Berlin to meet with Merkel and Hollande. Therefore, the announcement of the Porosh-Yats-Klich election coalition has been deliberately orchestrated to coincide with the independence day – for internal consumption, and with the trip to Berlin – for external consumption.
Poroshenko is trying to demonstrate something to the EU. That he is serious about staying in his post? That he means business and wants to win local elections? Or that he can in fact work with others? Or he thinks that’s how he can get more money? All of the above, I think.
There are many speculations why he is meeting with EU leaders without Putin (the Minsk and Normandy formats assume four parties participating). My view is that Lavrov and Putin have tried to instill in Holande and Merkel that Russia won’t tolerate a new escalation in Donbass, especially before the elections. It appears Poroshenko is being called on the carpet for a bit of reprimand and thrashing, but also to promise him more support if he behaves a little better.
Most analysts are sounding alarm over the upcoming new war escalation, predicting a major attempt by Ukraine to re-establish its control over entire Donbass and the Russian border. Access to the Russian border is crucial for the Republics. It is their only lifeline.
I can tell you right away such plan is absolutely doomed and this Kiev junta will never be able to take over DNR and LNR, nor the Russian border. Previous attempts to attack DNR and LNR resulted in Debaltsevo and Illovaisk cauldrons with thousands of Ukraine troops dead or taken prisoner. They won’t succeed, however, they can unfortunately cause a lot more death and destruction.
That said, Russia is now using any and all diplomatic leverage with EU to make EU pressure Poroshenko into backing off. EU isn’t interested in a new military escalation either. EU is now facing African/Middle Eastern migrant crisis of staggering proportions (see my post). They can’t afford any additional instability to the east.
At least in that, Russia and EU are united. However hard the US tries to portray a united front against Russia, EU and US are experiencing a widening rift over Ukraine. I wrote previously that EU cannot rebel openly against the US because every time they are attempting an even remotely independent policy, France or Germany experience a false flag.
They have to tread very softly, thus a very low-key meeting with Poroshenko in Berlin. Ukraine will likely be promised more money from the EU, as a sort of carrot, if it at least attempts to observe certain appearances.
So far, Ukraine has been kept on life support by both US and EU. This ties up US and EU resources. The longer such situation lasts, the better for Russia.
The initial idea was to put a wedge between Russia and EU, exhaust and break Russian economy, create anti-Russia out of Ukraine and tie up the Russian army in Ukraine after Russia would break down and send peacekeepers to Ukraine.
None of the above worked our very well for the ‘planners.’ There is a school of thought that suggests that Russia is tying up a lot of resources supporting Donbass (about 2.5 million people left there since the war started), therefore, weakening her economy.
But Donbas is one of the most developed territories of the former Ukraine, which provided during good times up to 30% of Ukraine’s GDP. Donbass can support itself.
The rest of Ukraine is much larger in size and much less productive. Kiev, western and central Ukraine were subsidised by Donbass and the rest of the South-East.
Pay attention, US and EU taxpayers! US is stuck having to support the entire Ukraine: 30-35 million people and the territory the size of France. Nuland and US State Dept spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine. How much do they spend daily now to KEEP UKRAINE ON LIFE SUPPORT, especially considering all the crooks and thieves in power, pocketing most of the US and EU infusions?
In addition to IMF and EU loans, EU provides hidden subsidies in the form of reverse gas supplies from Slovakia, Hungary and Romania. Ukraine prides itself on having gotten away from the ‘dependence’ on Russian gas.
The new gas supply route to Ukraine looks like this: first Russia send gas via Ukraine to Central Europe, or via Nord Stream to Germany. Then, part of this gas purchased by the EU gets sent BACK to Ukraine to make it seem as if Ukraine is independent from Russia. The price of what is called ‘reverse gas supply’ is lower than Ukraine pays directly to Russia.
And now a trick question: who do you think subsidises this gas and who pays for it when Ukraine, the country in de-facto default, can’t pay? That’s right, the EU taxpayers, especially Germans.
Of course, Ukraine still has to buy some gas directly from Russia, but Russia has put Ukraine on a strict pre-payment schedule.
Previously, Russia subsidised for years Ukraine’s gas purchases. The money saved on this new gas arrangement can be spent on Donbass.
Having lost some serious electric power capacity after DNR and LNR seceded (they produce 30% of former Ukraine’s electricity), Ukraine also buys electricity from Russia at subsidised prices. Russia still continues subsidising Ukraine’s electricity. Part of it is in fact Donbass electricity, which now goes through Russia and then gets routed to Ukraine in a round about way.
All the above attests to the idiocy of the Kiev junta. Just like in that old sad joke: to spite my enemy I’ll kill my goat so my children would have no milk.
Instead of having good relations with Russia and buying gas directly at a good price, they prefer to beg EU for reverse supply, inconveniencing everyone in the process. Instead of buying electricity directly from Donbass, they declare a war against them so Donbass routes its produced electricity to Russia, after which Kiev begs its enemy No. 1 Russia to sell them some electricity. When god wants to punish someone, he takes away their reason…
Of course, that’s exactly what the puppet masters who are pulling Ukraine’s strings want. They can’t manipulate sane people. They need crazies and crooks for their plan to work. Since Ukraine has turned into the world’s largest insane asylum cum mafia state, they are having a feast.
I know, the news aren’t as rainbowy as many of my readers would like. But every cloud has a silver lining. The crazier they act, the sooner the population of Ukraine will start awakening from this madness. The signs are already there. The diplomacy at large is working better and better. The restrained Russian position is already heard by some in the EU, and more and more are starting to doubt the official party line.
Recall my timeline for the turnaround in Ukraine: 2016-18. We are getting closer and it’s all developing according to plan.

Earth Shift Report 3: OLIGARCH WARS. This very comprehensive report contains lots about Ukraine oligarchs: Poroshenko, Kolomoysky and many others; about Putin and Russian oligarchs, such as Berezovsky, Prokhorov and Khodorkovsky; about Ukraine’s realities and dirty underbelly; plus, Lada reveals why Ukraine turned out this way after the collapse of the USSR. To top it off, the secret of USA’s real role in Ukraine is revealed.
Watch related video: Billionaire Poroshenko’s Fortune Explodes 7-fold (LadaRayLive 13)
According to Kiev’s official data, as voiced by the Attorney General of Ukraine, since last year, eight thousand Ukraine military defected to the side of Donetsk and Lugansk Republics: five thousand policemen and three thousand combat personnel.
I previously wrote about high-profile defections from Ukraine. This is the latest. This high-ranking officer of the National Guard says he was given unlawful orders to install internationally banned land mines in E. Ukraine. When he refused and blew the whistle, he was fired and had to flee the country.
This new revelation is likely to open a floodgate of investigations into the inhumane and illegal practices of the Kiev junta in E. Ukraine. And this is just the beginning!
The newest revelations will do a lot to withdraw the EU support for the Kiev junta. After EU support is gone, it will be harder and harder for the US to justify theirs.
ISIL (ISIS) Destroys Priceless Cultural Heritage. Refugee Invasion of Europe. Middle East Predictions
The contents of the first video below is chilling. To me, the most gruesome part is the senseless and brutal destruction of local and worldwide heritage that IS (ISIL/ISIS) brings with them. They already destroyed the ancient cities of Palmyra and Nimrod. Some of the cities mercilessly destroyed and looted to the bone are UNESCO World Heritage sites, whose museums house priceless historic treasures of global significance.
But note what kind of cars and SUVs these armed to their teeth thugs are driving!
We all know who created these forces, deliberately, or just out of sheer stupidity: those who invaded and bombed Afghanistan and Iraq, who later destroyed Libya and who now is trying to destroy Syria. Those who in the ’70s trained Al Qaeda and Taliban to escalate tensions and lure the USSR into Afghanistan. Al Qaeda and others morphed into the so-called Islamic State (IS, aka ISIL), also financed and protected by the same Western forces.
Now we all have to pay the price for what they have done…
MIDDLE EAST PREDICTIONS
To answer a recent remark/question by a reader, whether the Middle East is calming down and the geopolitical battleground is being moved to the Black Sea area.
Can’t say anything comforting, sorry.
Yes, the geopolitical ground zero is spreading to the entire Black Sea – Eastern Mediterranean area, but there is no calming down of the Middle East at all. I predict further escalation of the Middle East tensions and further destructions and spreading of IS. We are nowhere near the end. The situation in the Middle East will continue spiraling out of control and it will be very difficult to calm it down for years. There are too many unresolved issues that will continue coming up as more and more truth and injustices are revealed. The injustices and truth have been suppressed in the Middle East for too long. The whole huge region is simply sizzling and cooking in controversy and painfully bleeding sores. It is very far from the end – it’s just the beginning.
It’ll only end after the very deep-seated internal problems of the Middle East have been resolved.
People of the no man’s land:
One of the problems is the refugee crisis, when hundreds of thousands from Syria, Libya and other countries of the Middle East try to reach EU. The most recent scandal is on the border of Greece and Macedonia. After thousands of refugees attempted to cross by trains from Greece to Macedonia as the most convenient bridge to the rest of the EU, Macedonia deployed army and police to the border to prevent that (so much for the EU policy of open borders). Similar situation recently happened at the la Manche tunnel connecting UK and France.
Presently, crowds of refugees are camping out on the border between Greece and Macedonia. Videos:
We are at a point when EU has no idea how to handle the crisis they helped generate.
The heads of the EU are proposing the following. Why not relocate 100,000 of no man’s land refugees from Greece to…. Ukraine. I’m not kidding, this is the official proposal on the table!
These refugees from Africa are hard-working people, say the authors of the proposal. There are many abandoned or decaying villages in central and western Ukraine. Why not resettle these refugees in those villages, they will rebuild the villages and work the land. Everyone will be happy. Ukraine is trying to join EU, why don’t they start showing their loyalty by helping out and alleviating the EU burden. We are talking about Ukraine here, the country in pre-default state and in the middle of a civil war!
The question asked by the people of Donbass is: how many of these 100,000 will end up in ATO, shooting at Donetsk and Lugansk? If they don’t, it would be interesting to see how these people used to hot climate will survive harsh Ukrainian winters.
Some refugees are being already resettled in the Baltics. This also will be an interesting experiment.
Another, joking proposal circulating the EU is this. I know it sounds awful and it’s not to be taken seriously, but I thought I’d include it as it’s still reflective of the general sense of confusion and panic overwhelming the EU. It is proposed that France takes the Mistral ships that it failed to deliver to Russia, fills them with refugees and sends them to the US, ‘who are mainly to blame for the refugee crisis.’
I think it’s ‘creative’ thinking such as this and living in political la-la land that keeps getting EU in hot waters no matter what they do, be it in Ukraine, Middle East, Africa, or within its own Union.
I think it’s crucial to understand the difference between a hoax being spread in MSM/ alternative media/ the web from what I call a targeted info dump. The latter is my own term; all definitions/explanations below are also mine. I want to share with you my secret technique for telling the difference. I think understanding this distinction will be very useful for all my readers in navigating a sea of confusing and conflicting info out there.
A hoax is usually a sensationalistic in nature report, often on some sort of blog or alternative media, but lately also in MSM, whose professionalism is so down that they can’t and won’t check their sources. It usually starts with some sort of sizzling bomb of a story, complete with pictures and certain facts that do not directly confirm the story, which is obvious to those who know the circumstances. Sometimes, pics and details are twisted or untrue. But for the uninformed people the appearances serve as a solid confirmation.
This is a great example of a hoax tweeted to me recently:
The title of this ‘news’ is: Report: All Out War As Russia Prepares To Deploy 50,000 Troops To Ukraine: “Cities Burning, Hundreds Dead”
So, Russia is sending 50,000 troops to Ukraine, right? If you ever read my blog, in which I spell out the timeframe for Ukraine’s turnaround and how it will happen, and where I predict that Russia will NOT send troops to Ukraine to oppose Kiev troops, you will know you are looking at a hoax that muddies waters, incites panic and confuses people. Those who ask me such questions, first kindly review my PREDICTIONS, which spell out the sequence and essence of future events for Ukraine.
AND THIS IS THE REAL TRUTH: Kiev is amassing a huge army in Donbass; the shelling of Donetsk and some other towns has intensified. It is believed that Kiev is preparing a new massive offensive, of which DNR and LNR have been warning international community and leaders of EU since the beginning of August. Sergey Lavrov has come out with a warning, emphasizing that Russia is for the diplomatic solution and return to Minsk 2 peace agreement.
(The rest of the TRUTH is coming in a separate post about breaking news from Ukraine.)
But the sensationalistic hoax above explains none of this. Whoever put it together obviously has no idea about the real situation and the geopolitics of the area. Of course, there are even famous geopolitical analysts (such as Russian analyst Alexandr Dugin), who completely lost perspective when Ukraine had started, thus losing credibility. But here we see no attempt to even establish any perspective.
All I see is someone so desperate for attention as to create a false sensationalistic hoax. This happens to those who want to increase their readership or viewership at all cost. Some resort to this kind of sensationalistic posting, without understanding what they are talking about.
Sometimes hoaxes like this, since they are catchy and highly visible, are the ones that get repeated and reposted, spreading lies like wildfire. Meanwhile, the real truth, honest and profound analysis get neglected or even disbelieved. The example of honest, detailed and truthful writing is what you see on FuturisTrendcast and also in those videos and from those authors whom I usually recommend.
A great example of a mega-hoax I had dispelled is my Earth Shift Report 1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?
An example of Targeted Info Dump:
Note, we are focusing on the title, not so much on the article itself, which may contain valid thoughts of its author. I haven’t read the article; it’s not about the author of the article, who is a respected precious metals analyst.
It’s about the title. I have seen this floating around before, and I have been asked this question previously. Is it true that Russia and China are threatening to release secret data about what US did here or there, or reveal a secret of this or that? When you see such headline, this is what I want you to remember. You are dealing with a typical info dump.
What is targeted info dump? It’s when a government (usually, but not always; sometimes it’s some sort of large and influential organization) dumps into the informational matrix a certain type of targeted message. It’s usually a warning to someone, be it another country or specific political or public figure. It is also done to mold public opinion in a specific way.
A typical info dump to prep Americans for the upcoming Iraq war was ‘info’ that Saddam aided Al Qaeda and had weapons of mass destruction.
As you see, this specific info dump was also a hoax. Therefore, it can be both at the same time, except, in a case of info dump the goal is either to change or manipulate global public opinion, or to send a very high-profile warning to multiple recipients.
Ultimately, ask yourself: Qui bono? Then you will know which it is: a simple hoax or targeted info dump.
Info dumps are used extensively by the Kiev junta. So much so and with such lack of professionalism that they are not believed any more even by their biggest allies. But they did their damage throughout 2014, when they influenced the not so bright EU leaders to make mistake after mistake, thus pinning them into a corner out of which they now can’t escape.
But ultimately, Kiev junta’s irresponsible overuse of info dumps to manipulate public opinion caused them to completely lose credibility. It’s just the matter of time until this pseudo government loses any support from the West and will be overthrown. Similarly, lies by the US about weapons of mass destruction, 9/11 and false flags, caused US government to quickly lose credibility not just worldwide, but also among its own citizens.
That’s why info dumps have to be used very selectively by governments, if they don’t want to lose credibility.
Perhaps this is why Russian government very infrequently does that, although some regional or political factions within Russia can resort to that more often. Same would be true for China.
Additionally, when info dumps are used as in the example above – as a warning to a global bully to back off – it is a good and positive use of this tool. Please also learn to tell the positive info dump from the negative one.
In this regard, Putin as part of NWO hoax was also info dump at the same time that it was a hoax. Despite years of character assassination, Putin continued being the most popular public figure on the planet. Someone (we all know who) needed desperately to tarnish Putin’s reputation. I explained in detail the mechanics and the goals of this hoax/info dump in: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?
As the Earth Shift intensifies, info wars are becoming so skillful and so multi-faceted that most of the time people have no idea whether they are seeing anything worth their attention or not. This is when very few trustworthy sources in existence become priceless. Stick with trustworthy sources, some of which I recommend on FT, and don’t help spreading hoaxes and lies.
Now, let me explain how info dump may be used in the above example.
US/UK and much of the West have been using info dumps for years, or rather for centuries. The Anglo-American world was always very skillful at information and propaganda. Russia, China and others were far behind. Info war was lost, as some suggested. But info war in today’s world is only intensifying. It never ended. There was no loss, just a temporary retreat.
It was only recently that Russia and China finally took it seriously and started using info war to their advantage.
The above info dump about Russia and China dropping a truth bomb is a warning for the US to behave. These info dump warnings have been appearing since last year. Whenever the situation in a crisis zone such as Ukraine escalates, info dumps would appear in order to cool off the USA’s hot heads. It works every time. Presently, the escalation of the Kiev junta military activity is taking place. Therefore, dumping info with a hint that such and such damaging to the US truth may be released, will act as an ice box: freeze!
This is an example of a positive usage of targeted info dump in international relations. It’s sort of reverse of a carrot. You can dangle a carrot in front of a horse to make it run, attempting to reach that carrot, but never getting it. This is just the opposite. You dangle the possibility of releasing a truth bomb, thus making a bully back off, lessening its appetite for someone else’s carrot.
In addition to the projected Donbass war escalation, there is also a danger of the renewed Pridnestrovie conflict; Odessa being turned into a US base and tensions around Black Sea; US meddling in Turkey and related Turkish Stream; recent US resolution authorizing the US military bombing of Syria government forces.
The recipients of the targeted info dump in all the above cases are: Obama and the White House, State Dept, Pentagon, CIA and other structures that are actively engaged in the destruction of Ukraine. China would usually have its own interests, often coinciding with Russian.
Obama and the ruling democratic party cannot afford to lose face so close to elections. If there is a danger of Russia releasing truth bomb, they will slowly back off, just like a bully. On the other hand, if the truth bomb targets something that happened during republican administration, then recipients would be republican presidential candidates. Release a juicy piece of truth about Bushes and there goes the republican front-runner Jeb.
These are just examples – targets every time will be specific to the situation. The warning can be sent to those who are behind the scenes and whose names we don’t even know. But they will understand the hint when they see the headline.
I thank my two friends who sent me these questions (you know who you are) for providing such good examples of a hoax and info dump. Unfortunately, I am not always able to answer all questions, but I hope this will help you all in the future to identify hoaxes and negative info dumps, stopping them in their tracks.
You often hear me spell out the position of the Russian government, Russian people and personally Vladimir Putin towards various issues, including Ukraine.
Throughout my many articles and specific PREDICTIONS, I have also predicted the sequence of the Ukraine events, which are materializing little by little, one of them being that Ukraine will eventually turn around to join Russia and Eurasian Union.
You also heard me predict that Russia would under no circumstances send troops to Ukraine or take a bait to start a hot war. In fact I predicted that Russia and Putin would do everything to create a roadmap for peaceful solution – and that they would succeed. I also emphasized Putin/Russia’s amicable and patient stance on Ukraine, which will long-term foster trust and understanding that Russia is Ukraine people’s true friend.
I also said that Russia would wait till Ukrainian people mature enough to understand that they got themselves into this no-way-out situation, allowing them to heal and shift their reality using inner resource on their own time.
I want you to hear the same predictions straight out of the mouth of the man who shapes and executes the policies and events we so often talk about.
At a meeting in Crimea, Vladimir Putin spoke about Ukraine and its future. I have translated this quote:
I am confident that despite all current difficulties, the situation in Ukraine will correct itself and Ukraine will again start developing, developing positively. Ukraine will eventually abandon the shameful practice which we are observing today, namely, when this whole huge European country has been placed under foreign management, when the key posts in the government and regions are taken over by foreign citizens. I think all this is humiliating for the Ukrainian people.
Undoubtedly, in time what is happening will receive the fair judgement of the Ukrainian people. Ukraine will get back on its feet to develop in a positive way and to build its future together with Russia.
First, let me introduce you to this post on the Way of the Love Blog: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY APPALLING & AMERICANS, YOU NEED TO TAKE NOTE! In it, Nancy says:
“Russia, President Putin, and her people constructed this beautiful 100 ft. teardrop monument in memory of those killed on 9/11… shipped it to America in huge segments … the artist came too to oversee its compilation and erection … the Russian people paid for it out of private funds.
The Zionist controlled US media gives the beautiful memorial, dedicated by Putin, a total silent treatment. The monument is barely known, even among local residents of Bayonne [where it is located]! … The base of the monument is surrounded by a marble wall with the names of the 3000 victims engraved in alphabetical order.” IT WAS GIFT FROM RUSSIA ON THE 5TH ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11, THUS 2004, & AMERICANS STILL DON’T KNOW IT EXISTS!!!!!!
THIS IS AN ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE EXAMPLE OF HOW AMERICANS ARE MANIPULATED & MIND CONTROLLED!!!!”
Thanks, Nancy, for posting this, and for caring. I can add a few facts and thoughts.
The monument was constructed by Zurab Tsereteli. He is most known for the gigantic sculpture of Peter the Great standing on his ship on Moscow’s Moskva River embankment, also installed in the early 2000s. It is located across from the iconic Christ the Savior Cathedral, rebuilt in the 1990s. Christ the Savior is the seat of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Tsereteli is known for his gigantic works. Many at the time argued that the giant Peter statue, dwarfing nearby structures, was too huge and therefore would disrupt the carefully preserved historic skyline. However, after years of argument it has become a well-recognized integral part of Moscow. Something similar once happened to the Eiffel Tower.
Living and working between NYC and NJ, I knew about the sculpture being sent to the US as a gift. The problems started right away. New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t want to accept the gift, saying there was no place to put it. Some were saying the monument was ugly. I am looking at it and I am very sensitive to any ugliness or falsehood. I do not see anything objectionable in it. I actually think it’s very appropriate for the occasion. However, the debates went on and finally they decided to place it on the NJ side’s river bank, overlooking Manhattan. As Nancy pointed out, the place is such that it’s absolutely hidden from view from any roads and it’s not marked on any maps. Most of NJ is gentrified and very expensive, except a few depressed slums, industrial and highly polluted areas. The city of Bayonne is one of those areas, polluted since early industrial age. The impression was that they hid the monument in a place where they knew no one would go, on a piece of land that was basically worthless (well, they did clean it up a little to install the monument).
I would venture to say that the US attitude at the time towards the Russian people’s sincere gift was one of those last straws that eventually broke the camel’s back. Such attitude convinced even the most naive Russians that there was no way of reasoning with the US.
Incidentally, after 9/11, Putin was the first head of state who called Bush to express his condolences for the loss of life. Very few remember this, but that was the time when Putin was trumpeted in the US media is something akin to the messiah of Russia and American elites’ best friend. Keep reading to find out why it was and what happened next.
At the time, I worked at one of Smith Barney’s branches in NJ. I had a lot of clients and friends who were directly or indirectly touched by the 9/11 tragedy. For us it wasn’t just something in the news – we lived it, and my memory is still vivid.
As a matter of fact, the morning of 9/11 I was supposed meet with a client, whose office was in the former Century 21 building (those who are familiar with pre-9/11 New York would know what I am talking about). It was a building directly across the street from the Twin Towers. I was supposed to meet with her at 9 am. She cancelled the day before, saying she needed to fix some problems at home. She didn’t show for work and I didn’t take the Path Train, which terminated in the basement of the Twin Towers. We both avoided a very close brush with 9/11.
I remember how after the tragedy we all felt sorrowful and indignant at the nonsensical loss of life and destruction in the heart of New York, where till then we all felt safe.
For years, I couldn’t look in the direction where Twin Towers used to be. Walking anywhere in Manhattan where before I’d have a view of the towers, I would purposefully look the other way. Only once I went to the vicinity of Ground Zero. Despite all the usual surrounding noise and Manhattan’s frantic traffic, the place was filled with eerie energetic silence. The energy there was dark and dense with sorrow, as if all life was sucked out of it. I never since went back and told my client that we could meet anywhere else but there.
The place has since been re-built, but I still avoid it. There is nothing for me there; nothing is left of the place I remember. To give you an idea, the calibration of the 9/11 Ground Zero area is presently: 85 – grief.
At the time, for work I still watched CNBC and followed other financial MSM. After Putin came out with his condolences, CNBC hosts were saying, ‘This guy is just brilliant, he doesn’t miss a beat.’ Putin was en vogue on Wall Street and those who pulled the strings actually thought they had just acquired one more willing American vassal.
I know for a fact that Putin and Russians felt very sincere sympathy towards the American people after 9/11, having perceived it as a real terrorist attack. As usual for Russians, they attempted to establish a bridge based on common interests – fighting terrorism.
Russia at the time just started recovering after the tragic and debilitating civil war in Chechnya, which only Putin was able to turn around. It was well-known that Al Qaeda and imported Islamic extremists were behind most terrorist acts Russia went through at the time. They honestly thought that Russia and US could be allies in fighting the mushrooming global terrorism. Putin tried to extend a hand and make a sincere gesture.
Of course, Russian leadership knew that US was in fact behind the creation and financing of these Islamic extremist organizations that infiltrated Caucasus to wreak havoc. But it was hoped at the time that since US also suffered a terrorist attack, it would influence the US leadership to change their mind against continuing to vilify Russia; that it would redirect bylateral relations towards cooperating in the fight against Islamic terrorism.
This goal was partially achieved. After 9/11 and sympathetic Russian response, US had no choice but to stop trumpeting Chechen terrorists as freedom fighters, and began labeling them as terrorists.
As a result of the US support withdrawal, terrorist acts in Caucasus and elsewhere in Russia slowly diminished and almost disapeared in time. This essentially confirmed for everyone how much such extremist organizations rely on US support. It also confirmed that without US support they couldn’t exist in the magnitude we are observing now.
Of course, later it came out that the whole 9/11 thing was an inside job created in order to drag the populations of US, UK and the West into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If US was able to sneak in Afghanistan invasion when the world was still in shock over 9/11, the Iraq caused huge resistance all over the world. The US went in anyway, thus completely destroying the international relations checks and balances of the past 50+ years. It went into Iraq over the objections of the UN, Security Council veto, and protests of its own allies.
The entire plan for the Middle East blitzkrieg takeover, akin to the German Nazi Plan Barbarossa, included 7 countries. If you recall, I once posted a video of how US Gen. Wesley Clark revealed this plan in 2007. I also had a later video with the same Gen. Clark being very tight-lipped when asked about it. I remember thinking at the time that they got to him. I recently heard the same Gen. Clark saying just the opposite of what he used to say. Perhaps, Gen. Clark got his price.
Both videos are here: Vladimir Putin’s Message: Part 2
What were the 7 countries US was supposed to invade to ensure its continuing world dominance? These included: Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia and Sudan.
The Middle East was sent the message: either submit and stay obedient slaves of the US, or you will be conquered. However, not all went according to plan. Some of the obedient Western vassals, such as France and Germany, became squeamish, so the ‘coalition of the willing’ turned out a little skimpy.
But most importantly, there was the factor of Russia and Putin. Putin played it perfectly, by being a good boy the West would love… until his power in the country consolidated, and Russia got strong enough.
People often ask me how and why did they let Putin come to power and stay in power, if he was such a threat to them? The answer in short: they simply didn’t see it coming. This was the brilliance of Putin and those who brought him to power – they counted on the outward appearances being such as to fool their adversaries, until it was time for Putin to act.
Those who aren’t very profound thinkers mistook that for Putin being part of NWO. This hoax had been circulating till very recently, until I dispelled it in IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?
This is the answer in short. The long and much deeper answer is coming in the THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
THE PUTIN ENIGMA Earth Shift Report is coming later in the year (Sorry everyone for the delay. It takes a long time to mastermind and write any Earth Shift Report. It’s partially done. I will finish it as soon as I have a long enough stretch of time to do so).
The Middle East was and continues being one of the two most important geopolitical pressure points of our planet, the other one being the Black Sea/Ukraine/Eastern Mediterranean area. Both fault lines are located next to each other, overlapping and interacting closely.
While the Middle East is mainly about oil, containing of China and Russia, and creating as much chaos as possible on the planet, the Black Sea-Eastern Mediterranean stretch is about the dominion over Europe, attempting to weaken and destroy Russia and Russia’s allies, preventing China from building the New Silk Road, as well as European gas and oil arteries.
The fight over lifelines (the old trade routes are now the pipelines) going through these same areas is very old. Both pressure points are about the life or death of the dollar-based system and about who will control Eurasia. Because, as we know, he who controls Eurasia, controls the world.
I said this before and I’ll say it again: This is why it is absolutely crucial for Eurasia to unite. It is only because of petty resentments and divisions that they are able to manipulate people into wars. People cannot be manipulated when they calibrate on the level 200 or better. Manipulation becomes a non-issue when anger, jealousy and resentment in human relations are discarded, being replaced with cooperation, good will, acceptance and reason.

Pro-US and Anti-Russian Japan: Eyewitness Overview and Predictions (Striking parallels between Japan and Poland)
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS RE. JAPAN
Politically, I do not foresee any improvement between Russia and Japan at this time. Economically, there is a little bit of positive, mutually interested development.
The propaganda has very deeply penetrated Japanese society. The future of bilateral relations is murky and uncertain – that’s why Patricia is seeing a confusing picture: it is undecided and confusing; it’s one step forward, two steps sideways. Distrust by average Japanese towards Russia will continue, heated up by the US-supported MSM and political propaganda.
I have to say, average Russians also don’t feel so hot towards Japan. These are very old suspicions. Pity – there is so much both Russia and Japan could accomplish together and learn from each other! Attempts are being made by Russia, but all this goes nowhere. Russia and Japan still don’t have a signed peace treaty after WWII. Imagine that!
The way Japanese MSM and politicians present it, Russia is the biggest enemy, while it was actually their ‘official protector’ the US that dropped A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and still has bases on Japanese territory. In favor of creating the image of the arch-villain out of Russia they even forget their other eternal arch-enemy No. 1.5 – China. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad!
I am not advocating Japan becoming an enemy of the US – just the opposite. For Japan it’s crucial to make up with all neighbors, including Chinese, Vietnamese and Russians, while maintaining good relations with everyone else. The thing is, historically speaking Japan is considered the biggest bully and aggressor in Asia, where just about every country distrusts and has a grudge against them. This is why Japan doesn’t feel like an Eastern nation, preferring to side with the West. No one really accepts them in the East, and their own policies and uncompromising, arrogant attitudes towards neighbors only reinforce that alienation.
From this perspective, Japan is a perfect vibrational match to the USA. No wonder they are such good friends, despite all the latest frictions. Some of the friction is for show, while certain agreement on issues still exists. The rest is Japanese politicians playing off the populist nationalistic sentiment of their countrymen. Either way, Japanese politicians are hardly doing any favors for the long-term development of their country.
US will continue keeping Japan under tight control for at least another 5-7 years, or more (depends on economic interests and how soon Europe swings to Russian side). Russian – Japanese business will be developing a little, as it has, because it’s mutually beneficial. But nationalism will persist and authorities will continue playing anti-Russian and anti-Chinese cards to keep their power.
PM Abe is really inconsequential. It doesn’t matter who will come after him as they will act like twins. This is the time for ANY PM who is nationalistic; yells about returning the Kuril Islands (um… excuse me, ‘northern territories’) – which, by the way, will never happen; escalates military spending, while behind the scenes takes orders from bosses across the ocean, etc.
Kuril Islands and Sakhalin were Russian territories before the 20th century, and they became part of Japan after Russia lost Russo-Japanese war in 1904. As a result of WWII, Russia got the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin back as part of Japanese reparations after Japan lost on the side of Hitler.
It is important to understand one crucial thing about Japanese politicians. It is imperative for them to scream about Kuril Islands and Russia as aggressor in order to divert attention from the true problems inside the country. And these are: 1. the de-facto occupation by the US, complete with US naval bases; 2. Fukushima consequences; 3. economic situation and debt problem; 4. unresolved historic issues, including Hiroshima; 5. social dissatisfaction of a very closed-up society.
Of course Japanese MSM, like MSM almost everywhere in the world, is under the US thumb.
Former Japanese PM Hatoyama is known for his recent surprise visit to Crimea, which he accomplished despite the heat such visit drew in Japan. He is a surprisingly decent and brave guy for a Japanese politician, but he has no chance right now. Maybe in a few years. Being thought of as associated with Russia in any way (even though there is really no association) only hurts his chances of being heard. Pity, but this is the reality.
Still, what Hatoyama has done wasn’t only brave, but also was necessary to shutter the so-called “unified Western front” in relation to Crimea. Actually, his very courageous feat caused a European shift. Since then, a French parliamentary delegation has visited Crimea, and I believe a German Bundestag delegation is next.
Striking parallels between Japan and Poland you would never imagine existed!
In some ways, Japan as far as its political composition and views go, reminds me of Poland. But I think even in Poland there are more people who see the world situation with clearer eyes. This is because more Poles speak Russian and still remember the old days when Russia/USSR did absolutely everything to extend the hand of friendship to Poland, forgetting the old grudges.
You all know my view on this: perhaps the USSR and Russia have overdone the forgiveness thing. Not only the USSR liberated Poland in 1945 at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives, but Stalin also made sure Poland received a huge chunk of German territory after WWII, as part of German reparations. USSR also saw to it that Polish economy did well, investing resources and money USSR should have kept for its own after-the-war reconstruction and development.
Meanwhile before the war, Poland under its virtual dictator Pilsudski had been a pretty vicious aggressor. Using Hitler’s aggression as a distraction, Poland tried to bite off pieces of Czechoslovakia, Austria, and any country they could get their hands on. This was Polish attitude historically, including attempts to invade Russia to replace Russian tsars with usurpers. Not to mention that since 18-19th century Poland was consistently engaged in molding Malorussia, aka, Malorossia (known today as Ukraine) into anti-Russia.
The USSR, preferring to sweep the truth under the rug, caused Poland to feel they didn’t have to pay the price for past misdeeds, encouraging in turn more arrogance, playing victim, and bolder aggression, which we are observing today.
As we know, Japan did pay a dear price in the form of territories, lives and humiliation, for the WWII and pre-war aggression, as did Germany. In that, Japan and Poland are very different.
Poland and Japan are also very different in terms of culture.
Finally, Japan is a much more economically developed country, with infinitely larger economy, which once was the engine of global growth, and substantially higher standard of living than Poland. (But both countries are very similar in a sense of embracing the Western lifestyle and capitalist economic principles based on US ‘advice’ – Japan after WWII and Poland after the breakup of the USSR – and paying for their capitalist development by raking in insurmountable level of debt, which is now coming back to haunt them.)
Yet, both Poland and Japan, being so different in just about every sense, are:
- Thoroughly and willingly under the US thumb;
- Have a lot of historic distrust relative to ALL neighbors;
- This causes them to rely on alliance with the US against closest neighbors, US being the only country their selective memory forgives for any wrongdoing;
- Both countries have substantial territorial disputes with more than one neighbor;
- MSM/politicians in both are engaged in pretty vicious anti-Russian propaganda, while being supported by the US, and in fact, serving as US Trojan Horses in their respective regions;
- Additional very strong countries in their vicinity, which they regard with jealousy and extreme distrust: Germany for Poland and China for Japan;
- Both countries secretly dream about restoring their failed empires.
I can tell you with absolute confidence – this is a way to nowhere.
Economy will eventually cause both countries to reconsider and back off. But before that happens, both Japan and Poland – so easily manipulated due to their ulterior motives, such as nationalism and imperial ambitions – will cause a lot of trouble for Russia, Eurasia and for themselves.
My QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS will give you an additional layer of clarity!
Japan as a whole country presently calibrates at: 150 – anger; Chi: 180 – pride
Tokyo as a whole city calibrates at: 180 – pride; Chi 189 – pride.
Fukushima situation in reality calibrates at: 110 – fear; Chi 85 – grief — in other words, real disaster; although it’s better than a couple of years ago.
Real state of Japanese economy calibrates at: 95 – grief. See, THIS is the truth – this is what they are really trying to hide by yelling about Russia as enemy No. 1! Japanese economy isn’t doing so hot.
Real state of Japanese-Russian relations: 150 – anger
State of China-Japan relations: 85 – grief
Real state of Japanese-US relations: 198 – yearning/striving. Isn’t that interesting! What are they striving and yearning for? To be accepted by the US as equals? Or they are desperately trying to keep the front, while the deep-seated cracks start appearing?

My top recommendation – the best Novorossia News channel
(staffed and funded by volunteers and donations):
YouTube channel News-Front. It is the best source of up-to-date news from Donbass, Novorossia and Crimea. You have seen me sometimes translate or reference bits from this channel.
The only thing they have with embedded English subs is the 2-min daily Novorossia News Summary (with Elena Krasovskaya) – Rus: Сводка новостей Новороссии. Click on this link to access the playlist on their channel, or go to channel and scroll down till you see this title in Russian. Their subs aren’t super, but you get the idea.
They also have the following programs, but only in Russian (if anyone finds a good way of translating for YT, please do share as then everyone would be able to listen to this channel):
News. Our Crimea! – Rus: Новости. Крым наш!
Here is an example:
Great interview program called In Reality with Sergey Veselovsky – Rus: Программа “На Самом Деле”
Some interviews are with real residents of various areas of Ukraine, who dare to tell the truth of how they live, some with Novorossia soldiers and politicians, and others – with people internationally and experts.
News-Front also publishes very nitty-gritty and truthful documentaries about the Donbass war, including a lot of pretty graphic stuff. Those who want to see the magnitude of destruction and horror there, go to these playlists:
“Донбасс на линии огня” – Donbass in the Line of Fire
“Новороссия. Оружие победы” – Novorossia. A Weapon of Victory
Generally, there is precious little truth and real deal news translated into English from Novorossia and other parts. It is only the enthusiasts and volunteers such as myself and some others that make it happen.
I want to recommend to you the efforts of one such enthusiast and FuturisTrendcast friend, Nemo, who is originally from Russia and resides in Scandinavia. He just did an important translation, which I recommend everyone checks out.
For those who speak German, I think there is more truth available, as some Germans, including certain German media, as well as some Russians living there, engage in translating. I have to say that Germans are much more awake than people in the English-speaking world; however, their dissent gets suppressed all the time by their own government, working in tandem with the US forces.
Still, certain bits of truth make it to the German MSM. Under no circumstances can I say the same about the English-speaking MSM!
A couple of pieces with German translation – incidentally, these are also from News-Front DE (translated by German volunteers):
Students of Crimea respond to students of Ukraine:
While we, the normal people, admire the beauty of such an amazing creature as a lion, marveling at the miracle of life on our beautiful planet, others go around destroying and mutilating this fragile beauty! And for what? Not because they are hungry, not because someone made them do it, not because they have crying children to feed. NO! It is done for sport, for trophies, for ego, or for enrichment! And this can never be tolerated!
Please see new post on Lada Ray Blog and sign petition to extradite the killer!
US dentist Walter Palmer killed the southern African country’s most celebrated lion, Cecil. The American trophy hunter lured the lion out of a lion sanctuary at a national park and tracked him down. Palmer paid $50,000 to his accomplices for the pleasure of killing!
Extradite that SOB as soon as possible to face the music!
Most importantly, stop outrageous African safaris (or any other illegal hunts), in which innocent, beautiful and rare animals, who are the precious gift of our Mother Earth, are hunted down by spoiled, bored out of their minds rich scum from the US and other fat countries!!!
I signed the petition – please sign it too! Details, video and link to White House Petition in this post:

Here are some latest telling statistics from Ukraine:
The latest poll shows that 84% of Ukrainians want Russian President Vladimir Putin as the leader of their country. This effectively means that the vast majority of Ukrainians understand into what kind of abyss the Kiev junta is leading them.
Despite the overwhelming anti-Russian and anti-Putin propaganda spread by Kiev and Ukraine MSM, the population isn’t blind. Ukrainian people, most of whom are tired of war and want peace, start recalling the Chechen conflict and its swift and brilliant resolution by Putin. At the time Putin came in, he had on his hands the devastating Chechen war and all of Russia with destroyed economy and depressed population. Back in the 90s, I remember some Russians telling me dejectedly that the Chechen war would never end – and those people weren’t simpletons; to many well-known business people and analysts the Chechen war at the time seemed like a perma-conflict with no way out.
The conflict in Ukraine, to those who are ruled by emotions and lack perspective, also seems like a conflict without resolution. But it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Back then, Putin found the right person whom he entrusted the leadership of Chechnya; the agreements and necessary deals were struck and kept, the place was rebuilt and the entire situation was reversed to the point that the majority of Chechens are presently some of the biggest Russian patriots.
It is no wonder that Ukrainians want Putin. They should take the ticket and get in line.
Another poll suggests that presently 61% of Ukrainians want to leave their country permanently. Just two years ago, polls showed that such high percentage of those who wanted to emigrate only existed among the young generation. Now the population in general, including those who work and the elderly, want to leave the country. (Both poll numbers are from this interview (Rus).)
I explained previously that once Ukraine separated from Russia in 1991, people stopped believing in their country. Very quickly after, the most educated, thinking and capable people left. The vacuum was filled with inferior element from western and central Ukraine, who were purposefully appointed to top positions and who systematically removed the old, deeply cherished cultural and inter-generational connections with Russia and the Russian world, substituting them with invented lies. All this process was orchestrated and directed from abroad, by those from the US, Canada, Poland, Romania, Lithuania and Germany who wanted revenge and destruction of Russia and the Russian World.
The population of Ukraine under USSR was 54 mln people. Before 2014 it officially decreased to 45 million. However, in the past 23 years of ‘nezalezhnost’ = independence, 5-7 million Ukrainians have been working in Russia and probably 1.5-2 million in the West. Crimea and Donbass secession decreased the population by another 5-7 million. Another 3 million or so are refugees that left Ukraine for Russia or any other country they could. Therefore, the real population of Ukraine is now no more than 30 million people – down from 54 million in 1990.
Another bit of news: those anti-junta politicians and journalists of various political views who escaped from Ukraine after the 2014 coup are starting to organize an alternative government in exile. The organization, whose first conference took place in Moscow, is called the ‘Fund for the Salvation of Ukraine.’ It is headed by the former PM of Ukraine under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov. Unlike Yanukovich, Azarov is remembered positively in Ukraine and beyond for the quiet, but productive work he had done for the country. These are some long overdue, awkward first steps, and the people behind this alternative government are the old Ukraine politicians, who generally still have a decent reputation, such as Azarov, Vladimir Oleynik (MP from western Ukraine, presently in exile in Russia) and Igor Markov (MP from Odessa, now also in exile). Because of that, they may be capable of uniting various forces around them.
The country needs a completely new crop of politicians, who would be able to lead it into the future. The old crop may not be up to this task, but at least it is moving along. Except for Igor Markov, who is a younger and rather capable politician, these old political hands can be good instructors, taking the new politicians under their wing and allowing them to learn. There has been a talk about such development. The fact that it’s moving along indicates that the junta is feeling the pinch and its end is getting closer.
Recall my timeline for Ukraine’s complete turnaround: 2016-18.
Also recall what I said many times before: Ukraine can only be rebuilt and prosper in a union with Russia. Any attempts at dealings and mergers with the West on any level will bring Ukraine to destruction. However, after what happened, Russia won’t rush saving Ukraine this time.
Ukraine will have to provide some pretty good guarantees that it can be trusted, one of them being a complete weeding out of all malignant weeds. By weeding I mean getting rid of ukro-nazis, Western-ruled MSM, unfriendly oligarchs and US influence. This will be quite a feat and it will take some time. Another difficulty is that there really are no politicians in Ukraine who can accomplish it. Only DNR and LNR so far have people who can bring things to fruition.
Ukraine will have to produce the kind of people who are a match to the formidable task ahead.
The only thing… what is now called Ukraine will most likely bear a different name in several years time.

For the new Ask Lada episode, I chose the following question.
In response to my latest video: WHO REALLY RULED USSR? The Secret of Brezhnev’s Passport
Lada’s Guide to the 85 Subjects of the Russian Federation
If located in the densely populated European part, oblast in size could be between a US state and county. It’s typically bigger than any US county, but sometimes smaller than a state. If it’s located in Siberia, it tends to be bigger than many of the world’s countries.
Sometimes oblast is incorrectly translated as a ‘region.’
Russia’s administrative structure is federative, which means that there is a federative agreement between various parts of the country. This is due to the multi-national, multi-confessional and multi-cultural composition of Russia. In fact, Russia is the most multi-national country in the world, with about 100 nationalities living on its territory. It is also one of the few truly multi-confessional countries, although the main religion is considered Russian Orthodoxy.
Presently, Russian Federation has 85 subjects, including the latest two: Crimea and Sevastopol (the map below is several years old and doesn’t include them).
Many, but not all, of the 85 federation subjects are oblasts. Oblasts are generally the predominantly and traditionally Russian-populated territories within Russia, directly subordinate to the capital, Moscow. Most oblasts, with a couple of exceptions, have a large central city as their capital. Usually, oblasts are called by the name of the capital city.
Example of an important oblast without a large central city is Moskovskaya Oblast (area around Moscow – excluding Moscow proper, which is a separate subject of the Federation). Examples of oblasts headed by large cities: Lipetskaya Oblast (capital Lipetsk) and Voronezhskaya Oblast (capital city of Voronezh), both in central Russia; Novosibirskaya Oblast in Western Siberia (capital Novosibirsk).
Another administrative subdivision in addition to oblast is kray. A great example is Krasnodarsky Kray, which includes some of the most fertile agricultural lands in Russia, as well as the famous Black Sea resorts, such as Sochi. Kray (krai) means a parcel of land, or alternatively, ‘the end, edge or outskirts.’ Incidentally, the word Ukraine ‘ u-krai-na’ is a derivative of the word kray.
Black Sea resort of Sochi (Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 venue), Krasnodarsky Kray
Normally, krays are those lands where the cossacks traditionally settle. They were given land and special rights by the Russian Empire, and later, by the Russian Federation. Their administration was a little different. Kray is often bigger than oblast, although some are comparable in size and population. Other examples are Krasnoyarsky Kray in Eastern Siberia (capital Krasnoyarsk) and Dalnevostochniy Kray (the Far Eastern Kray).
Beautiful Lake Baikal, Eastern Siberia. Shared administratively by Irkutsk Oblast to the west and Buryatskaya Autonomous Republic (Buryatia) to the east.
Next, there are autonomous oblast, autonomous okrugs, and autonomous republics.
Autonomous oblast and autonomous okrugs are governed much like any other oblast, but they have more of an ethnic flavor, with more school subjects in small native languages, celebration of small ethnic cultures, etc. There are a few autonomous okrugs, but only one Jewish Autonomous Oblast (capital Birobidjan). They all are in Siberia, Far East and the European north, where small native populations reside. As I said in previous articles, their heritage is meticulously preserved.
Incidentally, the word ‘native cultures’ is a misnomer – the situation in Russia was completely different from that of the USA or Australia. However, since we don’t have a different word to express this notion in English, I am still utilizing it for the ease of reference.
Although there is a lot of debate about this, presently, the governor of any oblast, autonomy or kray is elected locally. There are a lot of voices advocating that all governors should be appointed by the Russian President.
It has to be noted that the territory of the krays, oblasts and okrugs in Siberia and the Far East are larger than most countries. Meanwhile, the population of these is usually very small.
Autonomous republics are a whole different thing. They have their own head of state, called president or something else. A good example is Ramzan Kadyrov in Chechnya. There is a big debate whether it’s appropriate for an autonomous republic’s head to be called president, since there can be only one Russian President. I believe Kadyrov himself raised this issue and said he wouldn’t call himself ‘president,’ choosing instead the title of the ‘Head of the Chechen Autonomous Republic.’ Meanwhile, Tatarskaya Autonomous Republic (Tatarstan) and Bashkortostan preserve the title of president. As we see, autonomous republics have a lot of say in how they self-govern.
Regardless of size, autonomous republics are those that have a predominantly or partially different population than ethnic Russians. Usually the core population is Muslim and they are mostly concentrated around the Black Sea/Caucasus and Volga/Urals regions. Exceptions are in Siberia, such as Buryatia, which is Buddhist, not Muslim.
Each autonomous republic has its own state language (together with Russian), own flag, troops and anthem. Their chain of command is different. First they respond to their own head of autonomy, who also has more pull and influence over local laws. Only then they respond to the federal center.
In addition to Chechnya, some other well-known autonomous republics are: Crimea (capital Simferopol), Tatarstan on Volga (capital Kazan), Bashkortostan (capital Ufa). There is also Dagestan in Caucasus, Buryatia near Lake Baikal in Siberia, etc.
Moscow, capital of Russia, city of federal significance
Finally, Russian Federation has 3 cities that do not belong to any oblast, kray or autonomy. Instead, they are separate subjects of the federation, answering directly to the Russian President, aka, ‘cities of federal significance.’
These are: Moscow (governed separately from Moskovskaya Oblast), St. Petersburg (also separate from the surrounding Leningradskaya Oblast). The newest city of federal significance is Sevastopol, base of the Russian Black Sea fleet, which is governed separately from the Crimean Autonomous Republic.
St. Petersburg (former Leningrad), city of federal significance
(More data can be found on Wikipedia.)
A bit of history
Russian Federation was established by Lenin in 1918-22. The structure remains very similar since then. In addition to the largest republic called the Russian Federation (Rossiyskaya Federatsia), USSR consisted of 14 other republics (15 in total), some of which had only oblasts and others, autonomies as well.
Before the Soviet Union, the Russian Empire existed within the borders of the USSR, plus several other, presently independent countries, such as Finland and Poland. The Russian Empire’s administrative borders were very similar to the present day oblasts, krays and autonomies, plus the former Soviet republics. However, there were no formal autonomies, although local style of governorship, customs and laws were honored. Each territory was formally called ‘guberniya,’ meaning governorship. Each governor was appointed by the Russian Emperor.
The situation in former Soviet republics
Incidentally, the now independent countries of Ukraine and Belarus both consist exclusively of oblasts. They have no autonomies or krays. Moldova has oblasts and one autonomy – Gagauzia (population: Orthodox Turks), which threatens to secede any moment, preferring to join Russia. Pridnestrovie seceded formally from Moldova, trying to re-join Russia for the past 23 years. Georgia lost its 2 autonomies, Abkhazia and S. Ossetia, after having mistreated their population.
Of course, Crimea seceded from Ukraine to join Russia. Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts) has also de-facto seceded from Ukraine, although the civil war so far rages on.
Ukraine is refusing to adopt federative structure, insisting it is a unitarian country, although many forces inside and out push Ukraine towards federalization. Kiev authorities rightly feel they would swiftly lose their grip on power, should federalization occur.
While ethnically and linguistically extremely close, ideologically and culturally Ukraine has one of the most diverse populations. For such situation as in Ukraine, it seems federalization is the only solution in order to keep peace. But then the question immediately becomes: why be separate from Russia? Kiev rightfully fears that once Russian language is officially recognized as official, all of East and South of Ukraine will recall their Russian roots and ask to be re-united with Russia.
At the same time, parts of western Ukraine may drift off to Hungary, Slovakia or Poland. The danger is very high of the artificial state of Ukraine – created within present borders by Soviet leaders Lenin, Stalin and Khrushchev – disintegrating at the seams.
From the above we can see that in the post-Soviet space only Russia is able to keep its extremely diverse and multi-cultural population working together in peace and stability.

Quantum Calibrations of Major Events: Iran Deal, SCO/BRICS Summit, Russian Sanctions, Ukraine, Armenia and Greece
This post is a logical extension of my latest article: Color Revolutions: Who and Why Takes Advantage of Border Disputes and Historic Resentments?
In the article, I suggested that my readers should use my Quantum Calibrations of Consciousness System, as described in the videos below. This system is extremely helpful for determining the truth or falsehood of any action by any country, or for determining a calibration (energy and intension) of any event in history. This system is accurate both for personal and global, large-scale, usage. I calibrate geopolitical issues in the examples below. But just as successfully, I can use my system for personal issues, whether internal or external.
The key is to ask correct question, so that calibration would deliver an accurate answer.
My Quantum Calibrations scale is based in part on Dr. David Hawkins Power vs. Force Scale of Consciousness, but it goes much further and deeper. It works together with my Chi Kinesiology – the system I use for calibrating.
The videos below will give you a comprehensive initial overview of the system:
I thought it would be helpful for my readers if I posted an illustration of how calibrations work, complete with telling examples. This is the first time I am actually calibrating these events. It will be fascinating to see how it will all come out.
It’s a double-blind experiment: I just type out a statement and calibrate the issue at hand live, then type in a numeric value of the answer received, adding my interpretation. I don’t ‘think’ about it. This isn’t about random thinking. I focus and produce the result. Some call it channeling. This is the function of the organized and focused cosmic mind, not the ever-doubtful human mind.
The examples used in this experiment are based on the questions and issues posed in the aforementioned article. Because the Quantum Scale is a relative (comparative) numeric scale, it’s easy to see where each action, event, person, or object falls relative to other events, persons and objects, therefore, allowing us to interpret and understand deeper the underlying motivations and consequences of each occurrence.
In other words, calibrations serve as quantum tool for getting to the very core of the issue and for extracting the real truth.
Below, you’ll see me provide a statement, its numeric value calibration, as well as sometimes also the Chi numeric level (underlying energy level) of the situation/event. You will also see me provide additional interpretations.
Let’s have some examples of quantum calibrations, shall we!
(To understand the scale and interpretations, please first watch videos linked above)
Calibrating the truth of a statement (What is the truth behind…):
Here, we will calibrate official positions of governments:
The position of the Kiev junta government in regards to Donbass: 10 (near death). In other words, practically no truth at all. They simply want Donbass dead, including people and infrastructure. However, when someone is on that level (be it individual or state), they will always end badly. Wishing death on someone else eventually bounces back to cause death and destruction of the perpetrator (per my PREDICTIONS, we won’t have to wait more than 2-3 years for that to happen).
Russia’s position towards supporting Donbass through humanitarian aid and refugee help: 980 (enlightenment, near absolute truth). No surprise. The generosity is obvious.
Russia’s position towards Ukraine in general: 185 (pride). While below the minimum positive calibration of 200 (courage), PRIDE is the first calibration level where confrontation isn’t desired and peace is a prerogative. Therefore, while Russia is critical of Ukraine’s behavior, considering Ukraine basically ungrateful and what is going on there deplorable, the calibration clearly shows that Russia definitely doesn’t want confrontation with Ukraine, trying to resolve everything peacefully.
But let’s see what US, EU and Ukraine positions on Russia are:
Ukraine’s position towards Russia: 1 (practically the level of death). Death = 0 in the Quantum Scale. In other words, they want Russia dead. Chilling, isn’t it?
EU’s (average for all of EU) position towards Russia: 40 (guilt). Guilt is a very debilitating, paralyzing feeling. In the video above I give examples of how some Christians experience the feeling of guilt, which makes them subdued, resentful and debilitated. Guilt, along with shame (calibration 20) are the two highest suicide producers among people. The judgement is so clouded that people simply cannot find the right solutions to problems even if such solutions stare them in the eye.
USA’s position on Russia: 6 (near death). Surprise to anyone that US wants Russia dead?…
Germany’s position towards Russia: 45 (guilt)
Greece’s position towards Russia: 298 (neutrality). A very high, and truly positive energy, but not high enough energy to make active deals happen. By the way, this means, as you’ll see later, that Greece isn’t ready to abandon EU and join Eurasian Union, as some suggested.
Poland’s position towards Russia: 2 (near death). Same as my explanation for Ukraine’s position towards Russia.
Finland’s position towards Russia: 49 (guilt – on the cusp of apathy). Apathy (50-74) is the level of the desperately poor and destitute in Calcutta. It is also the level of absolute and total disregard of another’s position and needs. Just below that (30-49) is a very low and unpleasant calibration of guilt. Guilt is a very stifling energy and it can be very destructive.
Russia’s position towards EU: 180 (pride). Same as my explanation for Russia’s position towards Ukraine.
EU position on Donbass: 10 (shame, near death)
US position on Donbass: 4 (almost death) So… Is it possible that just like Ukraine, US wants Donbass dead?…
The truth of the Kiev junta statement that Ukraine is separate from Russia, while common history is denied: 0 (death). This means that there is zero truth to this statement.
The truth of the statement that Russians and Ukrainians are one people: 995 (high enlightenment), or absolute truth! (the value of 1000 is the top of the human 3D scale)
The truth behind Poroshenko’s insistence that there are 200,000 (they have grown from 8,000 just recently) Russian troops that invaded Donbass: 4 (near death). Obviously, no truth to this statement.
Russia’s position re. re-establishing peace in Ukraine and ending civil war calibrates at: 280 (neutrality). A very nice and positive calibration. Russia essentially is wishing Ukraine well and wants to help out in a detached way, keeping distance and not willing to get deeper into the Ukraine mess. Recall how many times I wrote that both Ukraine/Poland and US are doing everything to drag Russia deeper by making them send the troops.
EU’s position on Ukraine conflict: 10 (shame, near death). This means that EU’s position is borderline absolute falsehood.
Deep within, how EU feels about their role in the conflict in Ukraine: 85 (grief). EU isn’t admitting it, but they are deeply unhappy and depressed about the role they played in Ukraine conflict. However, they feel desperately stuck in the situation, seeing no way out.
USA’s position on Ukraine: 4 (near death). This is what US brings to Ukraine!
Now, let’s calibrate some of the recent geopolitical events
Here we are calibrating the cosmic consciousness level of the event. I also added the Chi level calibration in a few cases. Chi levels in my system signify the intrinsic energy levels manifest in our Earthly 3D reality; it is a practical level of energy available to each situation.
The calibration below will help us understand who and why organized these events, the truth or falsehood of each event; what each event wants to achieve and the prediction for the consequences.
Kiev maidan: 4 (near death). Obviously, that’s what it achieved – the ongoing destruction of a republic that was once the richest per capita in the Soviet Union, having been built-up by Russians.
Crimean referendum: 295 (neutrality); Chi: 580 (joy/creation). The people wanted to live and let live; by voting for a better life outside of the destructive ukro-nazi Ukraine, they didn’t want to fight; they were opting out. The underlying Chi is spectacularly high: these people went to vote in order to create a better future for themselves and their children. For 23 years they dreamed of the day they would be re-united with Russia, and the referendum became the day of true joy for them.
The act of Crimea’s re-unification with Russia: 980 (high enlightenment – an almost absolute truth). Wow, this is much higher than I anticipated! I never took a moment to actually physically calibrate any of this before. What can I say – it was the enlightened decision on Putin’s part and on the part of the people and government of Crimea and Russia. Clearly, that’s where Crimea belongs.
Greek position re. EU debt: 180 (pride); Chi 150 (anger)
Tsipras personal position on debt negotiations: 180 (pride); Chi 150 (anger). Same exact calibration as his country in general. This means that Tsipras behavior is in line with how his country feels. Anger about the terms is prevalent in Greece, hence the anger energy. Deep down Greeks hate the EU and their stranded situation, which, as I predicted, would eventually lead to their exiting the EU. However, for now they have no choice but to negotiate. Pride is below the minimum positive calibration of 200 (courage), but it is the first peace-seeking calibration due to self-preservation. Greece is trying to find a compromise and resolve the debt situation without exiting the EU (but only for now – recall my prediction). I actually never calibrated this issue before, so I note that it confirms what I predicted about the Grexit timeline in my recent articles.
But look how differently US/EU feel about Greece!
EU position re. Greece: 80 – it rose to 85 in the last couple of days (grief/desperation/denial/no way out). Not a good calibration to have while trying to negotiate. Any deals they make with Greece won’t last too long.
US position re. Greece: 45 (guilt). They feel Greece is guilty of all mortal sins and don’t want IMF/EU to compromise with Greece. Recall that Greece is also leaning to Russia and participates in Turkish Stream. US wants Greece punished.
Attempted electric maidan in Armenia: 85 (angry grief/desperation). People felt they had no say in how much they would be charged tomorrow, desperate because of their low-income levels. However, private energy companies geared towards profit felt equally desperate and trapped due to large investments into the infrastructure and expenses they would never recoup. The government felt equally trapped between the two ‘rights.’
Latest settlement in Armenia, which defused electric maidan through temporary subsidies and investigation calibrates at: 185 (pride). Better than nothing – this means that everyone is trying to find a compromise and doesn’t want escalation out of self-preservation.
Finland denying visas to Sergey Naryshkin and Russian delegation to OSCE: 40 (guilt); Chi: 0 (death) – Very, very bad calibration. This will cause misunderstandings and mutual relations problems in the short to mid-term between Russia and Finland, to be resolved only when Finland changes its position towards Russia; when Finland’s energy level increases enough to (excuse me) give a damn.
Anti-Russian sanctions: 100 (fear); Chi 80 (grief). This is self-explanatory, I think.
We talked a lot about color revolutions as the technology to divide and conquer. Let’s calibrate color revolution as a phenomenon: 85 (violent grief) Chi 95 (also violent grief). No surprises. Therefore, even when participants of color revolutions honestly believe they are fighting for a better future, they’ll fail to achieve it.
BRICS and SCO Summit that just took place in Ufa, Russia: 410 (reason – a very high calibration); Chi: 295 (neutrality)! Clearly, all those countries that came to Ufa had a positive and forward-looking agenda, including India and Pakistan making peace and getting admitted into SCO as a tandem; Iran attending as SCO candidate; Belarus soon to be admitted to SCO. BRICS are developing a SWIFT alternative system and the BRICS Bank started its work. There were certain criticisms of the BRICS and of certain actions by China by some Russian analysts. This is probably why the summit didn’t calibrate higher than these values.
New Iran deal just reached between Iran and the sextet – Russia, USA, UK, Germany, China and France (plus EU): 410 (reason); Chi of the Iran deal: 480 (humanity)! This is very high for international relations, which often linger on the level of pride, or worse. There is no other way to describe it other than a major breakthrough!

Quantum Calibration Readings have been in the making since last year, when I first started talking about the Scale of Calibrations and Chi Kinesiology. For a long time I was in doubt whether I should get involved in it due to my busy schedule. However, over the past year this idea has kept coming back to me, which means it is the idea whose time has come.
As you can see from the above examples, calibrations can be an incredibly revealing and helpful tool when interpreting global events.
But they are equally – and sometimes more – useful for understanding and interpreting personal events and issues, as well as making important decisions in one’s life.
I find Quantum Calibrations to be a very important and valuable tool, providing answers with astounding accuracy. To help you understand deeper various events happening in your life, and to assist you in making the right decisions for the future, I am finally starting the Quantum Calibrations Reading service on LadaRay.info.
I will be posting several case studies and more details this week and next. Look for the real Quantum Calibration case studies on LadaRay.info under CONSULTATIONS and on dedicated QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS page.
Show Must Go On! Russian Army Choir Performs Queen with a hint for the Anniversary of the Soyuz19-Apollo Space Handshake
In Washington they may be looking to start a war with Russia, but in Russia they are still trying to remind Americans of cooperation, not confrontation. In line with what I had said all along, Russia is living out her destiny, that of the Great Planetary Balancer, by doing everything to continue promoting peace.
This performance should be considered one of the subtle hints Russia continues sending Washington. It’s dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the famous joint Soyuz-Apollo mission and the historic Space Handshake. More than anything, it’s a reminder that we all share one Earth.
ASK LADA 5:
Was the 1917 Russian Revolution an Early Color Revolution?
Russian Analyst Nikolay Starikov on Armenia Maidan and Greece
My view on Russian politician/analyst Evgeny Fedorov
(All posts in this series appear under CATEGORY: Ask Lada)
In reply to my article: Color Revolutions: Who and Why Takes Advantage of Border Disputes and Historic Resentments?
Ask Lada 5
That’s why I said the color revolution manual hasn’t been changed since the beginning of the 20th century.
However, the real color revolution was the February 1917 coup/revolution that unseated Nikolay II and ended the Russian monarchy. Without those Russian oligarchs, counts, officers and Tsar’s relatives who came out wearing red bands in February, plotting to unseat Nikolay II, the later Bolshevik Revolution wouldn’t have happened. Without the direct British agent Kerensky (proven fact Kerensky himself brags about in his memoirs) and his Temporary Government – Rus.: Vremennoe Previtelstvo – of oligarchs that destroyed what was left of the country’s infrastructure and morale in the short several months between March and October, the Bolshevik Revolution wouldn’t have happened either.
The 1917 Russian Empire situation looked a lot like Ukraine’s today, in other words, total madness – albeit on an incomparably larger scale. The Bolshevik Revolution of November 7, 1917 capitalized on the ensuing mayhem and went much beyond the color revolution goals, in fact breaking out of the mold, and building an alternative social system to rival and balance out the West.
But yes, February and November 1917 were in fact 2 parts of one mega-coup.
This is where Nikolay Starikov, whom I mentioned on several occasions, shines: explaining color revolutions. The geopolitics of the 20th century – through now is his period. Perhaps also 18-19th centuries as well. (He loses me when he goes deeper in history, into areas he doesn’t understand.)
Just posted: great latest video by Starikov where he gives his perspective on Greece and Armenia electric maidan. He echoes and compliments very well from his angle what I have been saying all along on these issues.
Have a listen. Sorry everyone, only have it in Russian, but I hope you can turn on English subtitles on YT.
Generally, Starikov is one of my top recommended Russian geopolitical analysts. Just keep in mind what I said earlier about him in regards to different historic times, plus the fact that he takes an exclusively patriotically-Russian angle on things (don’t blame him), while I prefer to think of the good of the entire Planet Earth.
In this video Starikov also talks about a direct connection between Gorbachev’s ‘treason,’ as he calls it, and the EU formation. I did mention in the above-linked article that I think this view of Gorbachev is overly simplistic.
Starikov makes a compelling case that Gorbachev’s actions, resulting in the break-up of the USSR, set in motion a chain of events culminating in the mushrooming of the EU as we know it today, on the bones of the Soviet Union.
Since we are on the topic of Russian geopolitical analysts: one of my readers, Kostya, also asked my opinion about Evgeny Fedorov and his ‘prediction’ that there is a secret negotiation to replace Putin. My readers do know my rule that I don’t discuss other people’s work or personas, unless I can say something positive, as in the case of Starikov above. I’ll make a quick exception here, since I often get questions about Fedorov’s sensationalistic predictions that never come true.
Here is what I replied to this reader’s question:
I generally don’t listen to Fedorov, as I mentioned on prior occasions. My view of Fedorov is that he is a fear monger and sensationalist. But perhaps he plays the role of the boy who cried wolf, which can be useful, I suppose, to wake up those who are normally asleep. Sadly, some need a dose of his scares he likes throwing around, to keep them alert.
I demonstrated in 2014 how his ‘prediction of the upcoming maidan in St Petersburg’ didn’t materialize, while mine that it wouldn’t happen – did. ‘Nough said.
But some don’t want the truth, preferring sensationalism and tall tales.
That said, as you know, I agree with Fedorov in principle regarding the NWO and UK/US globalist hegemony agenda gone too far.
Added to clarify some questions: I also appreciate Fedorov’s long-standing resistance against and vocal position on the US globalist agenda issues. In a way, he is a hero and a great awakener. But I disagree with his methods and information delivery. As I said, some people may require this type of presentation, which is sad.
Link to the above-referenced post: Prediction: Is Kiev-Style Maidan Possible in St. Petersburg? As we all know, no maidan ever happened in St Pete, in line with what I had said back then.
