Prediction: Deal of the Century Between Russia and China – Huge Blow to the US and EU
Russia and China signed what is called the “Holy Grail gas deal” worth $400 bln. It guarantees the supply of Russian gas to China for 30 years. The Russia-China pipeline construction alone, associated with this deal, will be the largest construction project in the world. Currently, 70% of China’s energy needs are fulfilled by local coal. As a result, China is suffocating in harmful smog. China wants to move to the cleaner energy and Russian gas is providing this opportunity.
With the largest gas reserves in the world, Russia has plenty of gas to supply to China, as well as the EU. Presently, most of the Russian gas is purchased by the EU to feed its very large economy. However, half of Russia’s gas transit to the EU is being held hostage by the hostile Kiev regime managed directly by the US with EU’s help, and EU/US keep insisting on slapping sanctions against Russia. Because of pressures from the West, Russia has to re-assess its economic and geopolitical priorities. What the Western leaders are realizing too slowly is that Russia is holding all the cards.
I predicted this exact outcome from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis. The thing is that the myopic “leaders” in the EU and US misjudged Russian leadership. More disturbingly, they seriously overestimated their own value to Russia.
Putin won’t hold on to the past located in the West, if he sees much better future jumping into his hands in the East. The deal with China is all that. As I said before, in the next several years, EU should expect gas supply shortages. Not because Russia will do it maliciously, but because Ukraine will attempt to sabotage EU gas supply by stealing gas going to the EU. As we know, Ukraine didn’t settle its gas bill with Gazprom since the beginning of 2014. To cut off the malignancy that is today’s Kiev authorities, Russia may have to limit or abandon altogether its gas pipeline going through Ukraine, writing it off as unprofitable headache.
The US is trying to take over control of the Ukraine gas interests, and eventually control of the Gazprom pipeline, by naming Joe Biden’s son as a director of a Ukraine energy giant. By signing the Chinese gas deal, Russia just said to the US and EU, “Really? I don’t think so.” The China-Russia deal takes away from the EU/US/Kiev the power to pressure Russia.
Geopolitical Prediction: This is yet another silly, pointless move, and in the long run it won’t work. Eventually, Biden’s progeny, together with many of his oligarch buddies, will have to run from Ukraine. All these frantic moves only create more distrust as USA actively self-sabotages its dealings with Russia, Eurasia and China.
The ball will be in the EU court to build alternative pipelines to bypass Ukraine. Ukraine and the EU will not be able to blackmail Russia via its Ukraine pipeline any more. As I predicted before – if Russia feels inconvenienced even in the slightest, she will progressively switch more business to the East. All the leverage in this situation is in Russia’s hands.
Lada Ray’s Mystical Futurism Prediction
Russia is the ultimate yin-yang balancer of the planet Earth. The more balanced Russia is, the more balance there will be in the human world. Therefore, Russia will continue striving to do business with both East and West, in other words, with both China/Asia and EU. However, if the EU continues behaving unreasonably – and so far it has – Russia will continue pivoting towards Asia. In the end it will be the EU that will pay the price for its myopia. Read more about this in PREDICTIONS.
In addition to the gas deal, Russia and China will be developing several other directions. Up to 55 Chinese tech companies are looking to invest in Russia. Finally opening up its markets to Chinese investors signals Russia’s resolute re-orientation to the East. Chinese tech companies are positioning themselves to squeeze the EU companies out of the Russian market, including giants like Siemens, BASF and many others. Over 6000 companies from Germany alone do business in Russia. German exports to Russia are responsible for 300,000 jobs in Germany. The shift to the East may become a problem for the already struggling EU economy.
Russia and China will also create a joint investment company to develop mutual tourism. This is another massive deal as Russia is the #3 destination for Chinese tourists and China is #2 destination for Russian tourists. Both are projected to grow exponentially as more Russian tourists go to Asia, and Chinese tourists to Russia, instead of Europe. As I wrote before, Russia and China will also jointly develop tourism and transportation infrastructure in Siberia and the Far East where Chinese tourists love to travel. In recent article: Russia’s Moves: Outlawing GMO and Putin’s Holy Grail Gas Deal with China I also spoke of another megaproject: the railroad, which will eventually connect China, through the Russian Far East and Bering Strait, to Alaska, Canada and the US.
These swift, and seemingly sudden developments are not a surprise to me. In the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis I predicted all that. I said that any sanctions against Russia will backfire on the US and EU, as well as Ukraine. I said that if Russia feels even slightly squeezed by Western sanctions, off to the East they go! Read Russia’s Geopolitics, USA’s Bluff and EU’s Big Mistake.
Soon after the West attempted to impose sanctions, Russia announced that it would be creating its own credit payment system to bypass Visa and MC – this happened after Visa tried to deny Russian transactions. Visa backtracked, but too late. This will eventually become a blow to the US interests in Russia, forcing Visa/MC to be squeezed out of the Russian market. Read Sanctions Backfire. Goodbye Visa: Russia Will Create Its Own Payment System. Right after that, Russia announced Eurasian Union and the new currency Altyn, which will create a new Eurasian center of power. Read Global Consequences: Russia Announces Eurasian Union and New Currency Altyn. The new China-Russia mega deals are the next steps in this whole saga. And as I pointed out before, this is only the beginning!
You know what the funniest thing is? IF the US and EU were smart enough not to provoke Russia via Ukraine, if they just let it be, Russians would have been content to drudge along just as before. Russians would humbly continue accepting the frozen conflict in Ukraine, pay Kiev for Russia’s own land and Russian Fleet base in Crimea, delay a deal with China, continue to sell gas to Europe, work around Ukraine’s non-payment and gas theft, attempt to work with rude Americans and Europeans, who keep calling Russians names not only behind their backs but also to their face, such as Prince Charles of the UK calling Putin a Hitler.
But the West cannot behave in any other way: its historic karmic role – I would call it a curse – is to be aggressor and agitator, which is a purely “yang” role. By doing so in this 3D reality, the West wakes up “yin” nations who don’t want to fight, and through confrontation, forces them to take leaps forward that result in such nations getting ahead. In this particular case the result was that Russia awakened and started acting.
Unfortunately at present, the US is incredibly imbalanced, which is why its yang qualities go into an overdrive, thus creating mayhem and conflict everywhere in the world. The US, as the dying empire in its death throes, is attempting to export its internal conflict to delay its demise.
Russia, being the ultimate yin-yang culture, strives to stay in balance. However if necessary, she is able to spring into action very quickly. Putin is perfect for his position of the Russian leader. Very few people know that Putin’s astrological sign is Libra and the symbol of Libra is the scales – scales of balance and scales of justice. As usual, Putin doesn’t engage in confrontation with the West, but waits quietly for the perfect moment. When necessary, he makes surgically precise, lightning-fast and elegant moves to restore balance and justice, which leave his opponents stunned. By the time they understand what hit them, it’s too late and the only thing they can do is recognize the new reality.

Oh, yes, and did I mention: Russia and China will settle all their bilateral trade in Yuan and Rubles. This further increases the international significance of the Yuan and Ruble. Eventually, the US dollar will pay the ultimate price.
2014 is the Chinese Year of the Wood (or Green) Horse. As I do every year, in January 2014 I wrote my Feng Shui Chinese New Year Predictions for the Year of the Horse.
Here is an excerpt of what I said:
“Lapchun Prediction: Another positive this year is that we have the so-called LAPCHUN, or the proverbial “spring.” Lapchun doesn’t happen every year, and when it doesn’t, it is hard or counterproductive to start something new as it will not take off. This year we have Lapchun, therefore, new shoots, new beginnings will take root!
2014 World Events Prediction: Due to the volatility of the Wood Horse combo, the events in the world will tend to spiral out of control. Tempers, ignited by the fire multiplied by wood (wood burns = intensifies fire – LR), will flare much too easily; fights may be gloves off and very ugly (gloves-off ugly civil war in Ukraine; nazis in Ukraine and Kiev junta killing people, warring against their own population – LR). Natural and man-made disasters, especially related to fires and explosions, will further intensify (Senselessly cruel fire that burned people in Odessa alive; Molotov cocktails used by Kiev maidan to burn police – LR). Various rebellions, violent protests around the world will unfortunately continue.
Protests against rotten and corrupt systems will continue and intensify. However, these protests will lack reason and will tend to spiral out of control, as well as be hijacked by interests with ulterior motives, as we are already seeing happen in countries such as Egypt and Ukraine.
Tying this point with the above: disturbing the energy of Tai Sui (the energy of the year – LR) with anger and violence will most likely backfire – and not just in the South of the world.
Here I have to dig deeper into this decade: we are going through a MASSIVE tectonic shift in consciousness and global structures. Whatever is not fastened well, will be blown away, whatever was not solidly built, will crumble and be replaced. This is true for the entire decade: various angry and violent protests, as well as revelations of conspiracies, corruption and greed, will continue. So, anchor and fasten everything in your life, and build your structures solidly, if you don’t want them to be blown away!”
Conclusion: Russia-China deals, Eurasian Union and other starts this year will take root! Those who initiate any violence this year, will see it backfire on them.
On a lighter note
Russian, English, Spanish, Italian, Ukrainian – these languages I speak are all well and good. I’m ready for the new challenge: Chinese. And luckily, I have relatives who can teach me both Mandarin and Cantonese.
Let’s begin, shall we?
Nǐ hǎo ma? Are you good? (How are you in Mandarin). Nǐ hǎo, wǒ jiào Lada. (Hello, my name is Lada).
Till next post, Joy geen (Cantonese). I’ll see you again!
