Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus Army Exercise and China-Russia Naval Drills near Korea
Pre-planed Russia-Belarus joint Zapad 2017 War Games ran from September 14 to 20th, 2017. The official number of participating troops, according to Russian and Belorussian official sources, was less than 13 thousand.
There are several things you should know about the army drills usually referred to as ‘Zapad Exercise.’ Zapad drills started in the 1970s USSR. Since then they were conducted every 2-4 years, on average. Last one was in 2013. The largest Zapad Exercise took place in 1980s, when 100,000 Soviet troops took part in Zapad drills.
The Western officials, notably, German defense minister, NATO, as well as Swedish officials and presidents of Poland and the Baltic states, have been convulsing in hysterics since July 2017. According to German war minister, not 12.5 thousand, but 100,000 troops took place in the exercise. Moreover, according to accusations, Russians had a clandestine plan to sneak those extra troops into Belarus under the cover of the night and leave them there! Please explain to me how exactly do you ‘sneak in’ 100,000 troops plus hardware? Is it the same method used to ‘sneak in’ the invisible Russian troops into Donbass?
Furthermore, the devious Russian grand plan is apparently to use these secret troops to attack poor, defenseless Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia — and yeah, Sweden, too! Never mind all those NATO/US bases stationed there.
You probably won’t be surprised to find out that much of this ‘intel’ was supplied to NATO, Germany and others by… Poroshenko and Kiev junta. Just goes to show the level of professionalism and level of intelligence of the German defense ministry and NATO.
Of course, they want to believe this tale with all their might. Why? Because they are looking in the mirror, but are afraid to admit to themselves that it’s their own reflection they are looking at. It’s so much easier to blame everything on Russia. It’s what they’d do in a heartbeat ~ in other words, invade Russia ~ if only Russia didn’t have all those pesky nukes and other cutting-edge weapons they don’t know how to counter.
Don’t believe me; just take a quick look at history. In the past several hundred years Russia was repeatedly invaded by: Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, France, USA, Romania. In other words, the same countries that yell the loudest about ‘Russian threat,’ and the same countries that form NATO!
So, number one: Zapad 2017 was a pre-scheduled exercise, agreed upon 4 years ago, according to Russian sources.
To give you an idea of what’s behind the name, the word ‘zapad’ means in Russian ‘west.’ This is the type of exercise regularly conducted in the western regions of Russia, or USSR in previous days. There is also a similar exercise, also conducted regularly, which is called ‘Tsenter,’ meaning ‘center.’ Those drills take place in central Russia.
Incidentally, the word ‘Zapad’ is pronounced with accent on FIRST ‘a,’ not second, as I hear it pronounced by the Western MSM. Accent on second sounds just too funny, and has a completely different meaning.
Number two: NATO’s Anakonda 2016 exercise took place last year along the borders of Russia and Belarus and it was the largest NATO exercise since the Cold War. The stated purpose of Anakonda war games was to deflect ‘aggression’ by Russia. It was defensive in name only. NATO especially employed RUSSIAN-SPEAKING statists to practice on them various invasion, hostage-taking and interrogation techniques. Usually, war games are not supposed to state the nationality or exact identity of a supposed enemy. During Anakonda 2016 NATO, with avid insistence by Poland, broke this cardinal rule of international relations.
Therefore, even if Zapad 2017 was simply Russia’s and Belarus’s reaction to the outrageous and insulting muscle-flexing by NATO, they are perfectly within their right to do so! The only way to keep the NATO beast at bay is to constantly remind it that Russian invasion is way out of their league, no matter how much they dream of it. The result of each invasion against Russia always ends the same way. I almost dare them to try. The result will be very predictable.
All my readers, as well as all normal and reasonable Western countries’ residents, this one is for you!
Don’t you see what’s happening? NATO, US and Germany’s hysteria notwithstanding, don’t you notice that Poland and three tiny countries located in the Baltics (Lithuania, first and foremost, with its warmongering hitler-in-a-skirt Gribauskaite, also Latvia and Estonia), plus Ukraine’s junta, are trying to engineer a war between the West and Russia. By inventing the ‘Russian threat,’ continuously provoking Russia and escalating hysteria and fear-mongering, they are attempting to ensure that large Western countries, particularly US, France and Germany are tied into an obligation to defend them. They want insurance that if they provoke Russia into responding through their actions, US/Germany/NATO will treat them as victims, not as passive-aggressive provocateurs they are. This was the way WWI started: a manipulated provocation in a small country triggered the major countries’ clash in global war!
In fact, we have seen this so many times! For example, Poland was the earliest aggressor in WWII, who invaded Czechoslovakia together with Hitler, yet it insists it’s a poor victim of German and ‘Russian’ aggression. Saakashvili’s Georgia attacked S. Ossetia, yet it insisted that Russia attacked Georgia — and the likes of Merkel, BBC and CNN just ate it up. The same happened in 2014 with the Kiev junta – and this lie is still ongoing!
All the Dark State / Deep State forces notwithstanding, don’t you see that these secondary countries are trying to manipulate large countries, provoking a massive military confrontation? And the silly Western MSM and sheeple just keep parroting it.
There are other three factors that are important, but not primary. Still, I want to mention them.
- Pentagon and various weapons manufacturers, as well as similar war ministries and manufacturers in Europe want more money. To constantly receive that money they need to keep public in fear of an imaginary enemy. For them Russia always played the role of such convenient enemy. In fact, when Trump began talking about lessening USA’s contribution to NATO, EU countries decided to give US a bribe in the form of more weapons contracts and war games. The elements of this bribe are more US hardware in the EU and more US troops in Eastern Europe. This bribe has proven extremely useful in keeping the gluttonous US military-industrial complex happy, and therefore, in keeping USA fully invested in NATO.
- The bloated machine of NATO itself is having a hard time justifying its measly existence. Every time there is a talk of NATO outliving its usefulness, the sold-out Western MSM comes up with some sort of threat from Russia.
- By constantly maintaining the fear in their populace, US/EU/NATO countries can distract their populations from real problems, such as migrant crisis, terrorist attacks and the growing rape rate by migrants. The West is in the decline mode, albeit slowly. By maintaining this constant fear of an imaginary attack by Russia, they hope to consolidate their sheeple around powers that be, so the sheeple won’t begin rebelling and questioning the obvious.
And here is another great example of the West’s double standards:
Just check out this extensive Wikipedia article on Zapad 2017 exercise. And just check out the anti-Russian tone of this entry! To remind everyone, Wikipedia is supposed to be impartial and neutral.
Zapad 2017 (Russian: «Запад-2017», Belarusian: Захад-2017) is a joint strategic military exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and Belarus (the Union State) that formally began on 14 September 2017 and ended on 20 September 2017, in Belarus as well as in Russia‘s Kaliningrad Oblast and Russia′s other north-western areas. According to the information made public by the Defence Ministry of Belarus prior to the exercise, fewer than 13,000 personnel of the Union State are to take part in the military maneuvers, a number that does not trigger mandatory formal notification and invitation of observers under the OSCE‘s Vienna Document. Western analysts, however, believed in July 2017 that the total number of Russian troops, security personnel and civilian officials to be involved in the broader war-games will range from 60,000 to 100,000, which would make them Russia’s largest since the Cold War. Since 2016, concerns have been voiced in a number of NATO countries over Russia’s suspected ulterior motives and objectives in connection with the exercise.
And now I challenge you to find a similar Wikipedia article on Anakonda 2016, that will honestly say that there were ulterior motives in that NATO exercise, and that Russia raised concerns over the fact that Russian-speaking people were used in it as hostage props for training purposes!
I was actually curious to see how the tone of such article would be different from the Zapad 2017 entry. I typed in Google: ‘Anakonda 2016 wikipedia,’ and this is the page I got! There is only an entry in German, written in a very different tone. It appears that the relevant entry in English was blocked!
Video: Putin attends Zapad 2017 drills
More Zapad 2017 videos
Incidentally, per international rules and unlike US/EU/NATO in Anakonda 2016, Russia/Belarus used FICTIONAL countries in their war games. Another thing worth noting: Zapad 2017, unlike Anakonda 2016, was conducted deep into Belarus territory and far from its western border. In other words, as usual it is clear who is the aggressor, and who only seeks to defend.
At almost the same time as Zapad 2017, joint Russia-China naval drills were conducted near the Korean Peninsula. This is clearly a reaction to Donald Trump’s threat to destroy N. Korea. Just to save his neck and to be on the good side of the Dark State and the establishment, Trump is ready to plunge the world into a nuclear war.
Although not happy with N. Korea’s behavior, clearly, Russia and China won’t let US strike against it. The only way US can be warned not to intervene militarily is to demonstrate Russia and China’s joint resolve and military capability.
Video: Russia-China Naval drills near Korean shores
As I predicted — and sadly, my predictions materialized all too well and all too quickly, Trump has fully succumbed to pressure and behaves like a normal warmongering US president. In fact, he is on his way to surpass Obama, that typical war-mongering Nobel Peace Prize laureate. As I said a few months ago: forget Trump, don’t hope he’ll do anything good that is worth mentioning, and write him off as just another failure.

How fitting that the same ‘Ugly American’ traits were on full display in Trump’s speech, along with the belief/threat that spending more money on military is a substitute for diplomacy. How eerily prescient that the authors in 1958 negatively contrasted American “refusal to integrate” (today called American Exceptionalism) to the “polished abilities of Eastern Bloc (primarily Soviet) diplomacy”.
Russian volunteers, with the help of local police, stopped illegal truck carrying 1300 dogs and cats transported in horrific conditions, stuffed 5-10 to a tiny cage, many wounded, bleeding and dying from heat, thirst and hunger. These poor animals were to be killed and eaten at the Yulin dog meat festival. The Russian volunteers had to sneak the saved animals in secret into shelters and animal sanctuaries. These organizations must keep their addresses secret due to attacks by the dog and cat meat traders — a horrific custom still existing in the rural areas of China.
I want to stress that it was an international effort; the Chinese volunteers and Chinese animal shelters were involved.
The good news, many innocent animals have been saved.

Hope all of you who celebrate July 4th have had a good time. We are back online after a couple of days off. This week, as the rest of the year, is expected to be very eventful.
Xi Jinping spent 2 days in Moscow with his wife, during which time $12 bln worth of business deals were signed between Russia and China.
G20 begins in Germany. The highlight of the summit is anticipated to be the Trump-Putin meeting on July 7.
I have lots of news of my own, including the finalized dates for upcoming Earth Shift Webinars 3 and 4, pricing change, as well as some mega-announcements about more upcoming events. The 3-Webinar subscribers already have this info posted on their LINKS PAGE.
Look for my FT post with all these news later today or tomorrow!
To get our feet wet after the long weekend, I’m offering you a couple of today’s interesting news.
Ahead of G20, an Italian farmer transformed his cornfield into a giant Putin portrait, using his tractor and demonstrating impressive artistic skills:
Xi Jinping and Putin really hit it off, and relations between Russia and China are the best they have ever been in history. This is the third time this year the two leaders have met. Last year they met 6 times.
Remember my 2014 predictions? One of them was that the more West tries to put sanctions or vilify Russia, the more Russia will swing to the East, and toward China as the leader of the East.
One of my flagship millennial predictions is about Russia the Great Balancer rebalancing the world away from the West and towards the East.
The latest threatening moves by the US towards China work the same way: they very effectively push China closer and closer towards Russia. The grand sum is yet again, my prediction coming to fruition: Russia the Great Balancer rebalancing away from the West and towards the East.
Of course, we talk a lot more about Russia The Great Balancer and the Great Earth Shift in my new 3 Earth Shift Webinar Series: ESW2 Inverted Collapse, ESW3 The Future of Money, ESW4 Period 8 Predictions. To order click on link.

The Philippines president Duterte had to cut short his visit to Moscow due to the Marawi ISIS attack. During his talk to Vladimir Putin Duterte asked for a ‘soft loan’ to purchase modern Russian arms needed to confront ISIS terrorism in his country. He must ask Russia for urgent help, Duterte said, after US canceled his arms order.
Remember what Duterte called Obama last year (I won’t repeat it here) and with what defiance and anger he spoke of the US? Duterte became famous after he courageously stood up to the pressure from Obama and USA.
On video below, pay attention at how Duterte talks to Putin – what a contrast!
Also notice Putin’s expressions when he listens to Duterte asking for arms. It’s clear that Putin has to make a snap decision on something as important as giving arms to a leader of a potentially very volatile country.
I’m sure Russian intelligence has given Putin a serious run-down on what is really happening in the Philippines. But Putin has to take into account the entire situation in the whole region, weigh the risks of the balance of power, relations and trade, as well as whether Duterte, with his tough talk, can be trusted. We are seeing on camera a rare glimpse of how Putin’s mind works and how he makes decisions. Usually this process happens more behind the scenes, but here, due to the extreme urgency of the situation, it happens in real time.
Duterte was at the Beijing One Belt, One Road Forum last week. At the forum the 29 invited leaders mingled while China presented its grand plan for the brave new world through the New Silk Road. Only 2 leaders showed up from the EU – and very telling two: the Greek and Czech presidents, both unabashedly pro-Russian. USA was conspicuously missing.
At the forum Xi Jinping made it an absolute point to always be seen together or next to Putin. (The Chinese Belt and Road Summit is an event worthy of a separate talk – I’ll address it in one of the upcoming webinars and in my upcoming interview – stay tuned for announcement).
Duterte also boasted that he was seated at Chinese president’s dinner next to Putin.
However, not all is smooth between China and the Philippines. It seems some forces are trying to stir trouble between the two. It is also possible that there is a manipulation to steer Russia to get involved in the Asian disputes.
My advise to Russia – to be very, very careful. It will take a very delicate balancing game to keep the volatile situation in the region under control. A few wrong moves from various parties involved (S. and N. Korea, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan the Philippines and the interfering US) and South-east Asia could explode like a powder keg. All this has to be weighed when making decisions. I have nothing but confidence for Putin and his team.
This is the Time of Russia, and any moves made by Russia at this time will ultimately bring positive results to the Great Balancer and to the world. We’ll discuss how this works in upcoming Earth Shift Webinars 2 and 4.
‘They want me to fight China. It’s gonna be a massacre!’ – Duterte to RT (FULL INTERVIEW)
Duterte: ‘Trump is my friend, but West is just double talk. I want more ties with Russia & China’
During this period of the Great Earth Shift the entire planet is experiencing tectonic changes and important events. The never before seen situations, dire emergencies and delicate snap decisions will be more and more common. In such circumstances, whether one is a leader or a country or an ordinary citizen, we’ll be required to make big yet untested decisions fast.

EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
Now only $39 (regular $56): CLICK HERE TO BUY!
Due to a broad-range international consequences of Trump’s attacks against Shairat Airforce Base in Syria, for the rest of this week I am publishing a series of my new articles related to the Gordian Knot of entangled relations between the following players:
US / Trump / Tillerson
Syria / Assad
China / Xi
Russia / Putin / Lavrov
I want to again emphasize that the world is going through a giant tectonic shift on all levels of consciousness and everyday existence of mankind. To describe this giant metamorphosis I coined the term THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
The first, fictional account of this multi-dimensional process and its possible consequences appeared in my 2012 novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. Although a fictional story, it gives you a glimpse into what is taking place on our planet, beyond the obvious.
As part of my EARTH SHIFT theory, I have defined the role of various global powers, most importantly, RUSSIA – THE GREAT BALANCER. The other geopolitical superpowers, geo locations and countries play their own roles in the composite structure of our world, and they have their own role to play in the Earth Shift – big or small. Some elements of my EARTH SHIFT theory and practice have been discussed in past EARTH SHIFT REPORTS and WEBINARS. Much more will be presented to you in future WEBINARS and non-fiction BOOKS on which I am presently working.
I’ll continue publishing free articles on FuturisTrendcast and free videos on LadaRayChannel. This is part one of the new series, following my recent #Trump and US #Syria Attack: Hate to Say I Told You So!
WAS TRUMP’S SYRIA ATTACK AN AFFRONT TO CHINA?
Of course, it was. It was a true humiliation to China and its leader Xi Jinping, who during the US attack against Syrian Shairat base was in Orlando to talk trade and relations improvement with Trump.
It is well-known that China recognizes Assad as legitimate leader of Syria and maintains that Syrian conflict can only be resolved via peaceful negotiations.
That very poorly executed US cruise missile strike may have even been rushed to coincide with the Xi’s visit. This partially may account for the sloppiness of the execution, when so many targets were missed.
Actually, it was an embarrassing for the US military strike, all things considered. Only 23 out 59 Tomahawk missiles landed within the base, most of them causing little damage. The rest of the Tomahawk missiles disappeared into thin air (were lost in transit or landed in the sea, if you believe the official line). Some hit peaceful villages, killing innocent civilians. Most damage was to relatively unimportant objects, such as canteen and old planes. The air strip and most structures are intact and jets are still flying. Syrian airforce base was back in operation shortly after the attack – another testament to the low effectiveness of the strike.
This tell us: 1. Tomahawk missiles aren’t very good. 2. It was a sloppy operation for two reasons: it was hastily put together and it wasn’t very well thought through.
But I will tell you tha tin my opinion it didn’t need to be thought through that well. The true plan for this strike, as well as the related false flag Idlib ‘sarin gas chemical attack’ was to sabotage any possible improvement in Russia-US relations.
I want to stress yet again something that perhaps not all are grasping. No matter how you look at it, the whole op had to be prepared well in advance. The Idlib chemical attack false flag; Trump’s straight jacket; intel on Syrian base, delivering, prepping, calibrating missiles – all this takes time and coordination. The entire complex op took some time to prepare, as pointed out in #Trump and US #Syria Attack.
You’ll ask where does China and Xi’s visit come into this? Very simple: Trump has a fixation over ‘showing China its place,’ ‘military escalation with China,’ and ‘taking jobs away from China.’ Listen to my Webinar follow up YT video: TRUMP’S WAR vs CHINA AND IRAN. RUSSIA NO LONGER US ENEMY? LadaRayWebinar1 Q3.
It seems Trump wanted to use the opportunity of Xi’s visit to show who the boss is and to send China a message. This was why the strike was a bit rushed – someone whated it to take place during Xi’s visit.
Since China’s position on Syria and Assad – coinciding with Russia’s – is well-known, a missile strike during Chinese President’s visit can only signify a disrespect of China. If you are receiving another power’s leader in your home, the least you can do is be a gracious host.
The US showed itself as not so gracious of a host (or guest) in the past. But there is a marked difference between what was happening in the past and what we’ve seen with Syria strike during Xi’s visit. The striking distinction is that in previous manifestations, such underhanded actions by the US were usually well-hidden and ingenious in their deviousness. When Kissinger and such were in charge of those devious designs, at least they were smart. What we see with the present situation is sloppiness, unprofessionalism and some sort of juvenile gloating.
Another interesting detail is a seeming lack of proper analysis and strategic calculation in Trump’s actions. At least one huge mistake made by Trump: two enemies were created in one fell swoop: Russia and China (I’m not even talking about Iran). Trying to play Russia against China, as the original Kissinger plan implied, was awfully devious, but smart. The Syria stunt wasn’t smart.
Of course, I have to immediately qualify this by reiterating what I’ve always maintained: Russia and Putin would never allow a hot WWIII to take place. This is one of the roles of the planetary GREAT BALANCER. Russia will do everything to calm the situation and take it out of the realm if the US cowboy hotheads and into the realm of diplomacy.
That said, Russia will make it absolutely clear that no further breach of Syrian air space, or any other illegal acts by US/West, will be tolerated. (At this very moment US Sec of State Rex Tillerson is meeting with Sergey Lavrov in Moscow – I’ll have a separate post about this meeting and what it means.)
Let’s refer again to LADA RAY WEBINAR: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? where we have discussed the secret Kissinger plan proposed to Trump when he first took office in January, 2017.
According to this plan, Trump would have tried to entice Russia to distance from China and reduce Russia’s nuclear arsenals in exchange for several major concessions on USA’s part, including: 1. USA’s gradual distancing from Ukraine, with subsequent release of Ukraine from US/EU grip; 2. West’s recognition of Crimea; 3. Repeal of anti-Russian sanctions. 4. There may have been other minor perks, so to speak, such as Russia rejoining G7.
In the WEBINAR we did a full-spectrum analysis of the Kissinger plan. I explained how Russia would NOT fall for any of it. In the past, under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, Russia did fall for ‘US offers.’ It never ended well. I explained why Russia would never agree to any sort of new nuclear arsenal reduction treaty with US, why Russia didn’t really care about Crimea being recognized, and why Russia didn’t mind the sanctions. As a matter of fact, in my opinion, more sanctions would be even better, especially those of financial nature. This would spur Russia to finally deal with the imposed by the West in the ’90s predatory financial system.
In order to prove that he was right in wanting to get on a good foot with Russia, and to silence his critics, Trump needed some substantial international victory or two. In the WEBINAR I explained how Trump made crucial mistakes in international relations from the start. He trumpeted everywhere how he would exchange a nuclear arms reduction treaty for certain deals with Russia. He bragged about it publicly without first checking with Putin if this was something Russia would even consider. That was an unforgivable faux pas. I said Trump was inexperienced and it showed: “wet behind the ears’ comes to mind. Although, I have to say that Obama wasn’t any better and neither would Hillary be.
Remember that famous secret phone call between Putin and Trump? In essence Trump’s inappropriate public assumptions made Putin teach him what to do and what not to do in international relations. He made Putin tell him WHAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.
As those of you who listened to the WEBINAR recall, I explained that Trump was used to making deals and that he thought that he would just ride in on his white horse, start making deals left a right and the whole world would be his.
Unfortunately for Trump, Putin is way out of his league. As you know, in the WEBINAR I concluded that Trump really had absolutely nothing to offer Russia. None of the offers (and we discussed them all in detail), gave anything to Russia that Russia truly needed, or wanted enough to sacrifice her strategic interests.
As a side note: sometimes one has to wonder if Trump is just a big child. As a matter of fact, the severe infantilization syndrome has become a common trait of the US and Western politics. Just look at the likes of the UK’s FM Boris Johnson. It’s worrying that so many weapons of mass destruction, global economic and financial instruments are concentrated in the hands of the ‘bipolar teenagers.’
Back to Trump-Putin phone call: Alas, it’s been all downhill since that conversation between Putin and Trump. It seems Trump has decided that since Russia won’t give him what he wanted, namely a great victory and an opportunity to look good while riding into the Capitol on that proverbial white horse, he’d make Russia pay.
Of course, this coincided with the gradual tightening of that proverbial ‘Trump’s straight jacket.’ The result is Trump’s / US Syria Attack and new escalation.
No, US strike was not done exclusively or specifically as a message for China, as some suggested. However, it was a meaningful coincidence that Xi happened to visit the US at that moment.
The complex op was planned well in advance, in order to prevent Russia-US relations improvement and to sabotage the pre-announced potential meeting between Putin and Trump, which was initially planned for April or May. After what happened in Syria, the Putin-Trump meeting is likely to be postponed.
Meanwhile, the Chinese President Xi’s visit to Florida was a last minute surprise, agreed upon very shortly before it happened.
Yes, US Tomahawk strike was rushed just a little to be timed to additionally humiliate Chinese leader. But that was a cherry on the cake. The real underlying reason was to re-create and worsen the rift between Russia and US (and also between Russia and UK and Russia and EU), never allowing it to heal.
Did Trump succeed in ‘putting China in its place?’ No, not really. Xi and China aren’t stupid and they’ve made their conclusions. All he accomplished is pushing China even closer to Russia. This, if you recall our discussions, is the opposite of the mega-goal of the Kissinger Plan.
Did the main goal of keeping and worsening the rift between Russia and US (incl. EU and UK) succeed? Only partially, and I can confidently predict that Russia/ Putin /Lavrov will make sure it doesn’t stick.
Did the additional goal of maintaining the rift between Russia and EU and imposing new sanctions succeed? Not at all. As a matter of fact, during G7 EU has said NO to more sanctions. If anything, a rift between US and European allies has solidified.

About this report
About Lada Ray’s Quantum and Geo Calibrations (intro excerpt)
The original Scale of Human Consciousness was developed by late David Hawkins, MD, Ph. D. using the 1000 point base scale. It was explained in his best-selling book, Power vs. Force. Lada wishes to give credit to David Hawkins pioneering work and invites everyone to read his book to familiarize oneself with the original scale.
A calibration is normally performed through Kinesiology test (muscle test), technique traditionally used in holistic medicine and to calibrate consciousness levels.
Lada Ray began working with the Hawkins scale since she first discovered it in 2002, helping many of her private clients through calibrations. Simultaneously, Lada Ray began discovering new and creative ways of using, expanding and perfecting the base Hawkins scale. She also discovered a number of new, original levels that were not a part of the Hawkins scale. Lada redefined some of the calibration levels, based on her expanding knowledge and understanding of the multiverse and multidimensional consciousness. Lada invented new calibration modules and created her own interpretations for each calibration. All this reshaped the base scale for the usage in the 21st Century, added depth and veracity, making the new Lada Ray scale user friendly and versatile.
Further, Lada discovered an important distinction between Quantum Calibration (QC – cosmic force available to a subject) and Chi level (CHI – earthly energy manifest by a subject). She also defined the difference between the two.
Lada began calibrating values such as individual chakra levels and complete energy body levels, energy pollution, emotional/anger pollution, empath levels, soul levels, intelligence levels, global event probabilities, and many others. The values to calibrate are infinite, as long as Lada Ray’s strict methodology is correctly applied.
Lada regularly performs calibrations of cosmic and angelic beings, and of the universal energy levels well beyond the 1000 point scale used for human consciousness. She also routinely monitors through calibrations various truths vs. lies, forbidden history and events in our past, present and future – beyond the obvious.
Lada Ray’s Quantum Calibration System works to assist in the development and implementation of her EARTH SHIFT & GLOBAL BALANCER THEORY. One day Lada promises to tell the whole story of the fascinating discoveries she has made…
Along the way of her multi-year research, Lada developed extensive interpretations of her own for each individual calibration value, tailored to specific type of calibration. Although based on the original Hawkins scale, these proprietary interpretations are entirely original.
Lada named her new scale the UNIVERSAL QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SCALE. Short title: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS. In addition to the expanded and re-imagined scale, these titles apply to Lada Ray’s re-worked levels and their new names, new types of calibrations and their proprietary interpretations, but are not limited to those.
Recently, Lada developed a new type of calibrations: GEO CALIBRATIONS. These are used on macro levels in order to determine the calibration levels of:
collective consciousness and consensus
global and local events
quality of life worldwide
life force energy available to a country, city or region of the world
prognosis for the development of said geo location
probability of war or peace
likelihood of general success, expansion, decline, crisis or destruction of a geo location
climate and earth change
culture, history, nature and technology
quality of people and community
And much more can be geo-calibrated. The new Geo Calibrations are very helpful in determining personal strategies for global relocation. They are also helpful in figuring out global and regional developmental strategies.
Lada Ray has expanded and reinvented the original Kinesiology muscle test to tailor it to her QUANTUM & GEO CALIBRATION system. She calls her testing method CHI KINESIOLOGY.
The newly updated Lada Ray Quantum Scale, and the new Geo Calibration Scale with complete interpretations is included with this report!

GEO CALIBRATION GUIDELINES (small excerpt)
The Quality of Life Geo Calibrations are essentially non-political and are designed by Lada Ray to pinpoint the best and/or worst places to live on our planet. This report allows you to compare and understand where any geo-location (country, region, city, continent) falls on the scale, relative to neighbors.
For the purposes of this report, Lada would have preferred not to talk about politics at all. However, due to the ongoing tectonic global change facilitated by the Great Earth Shift, the war vs. peace, political, geopolitical and safety factors figure prominently into this study. Depending on how a geo location fares in these parameters, a cumulative calibration may dramatically change.
How the Quality of Life criteria are calibrated:
They are calibrated from the standpoint of the collective consciousness (general consensus) and based on typical standard of living expectations of those residing in the West. However, in cases where politics, culture and aesthetics are involved, the study has been tailored to a more educated, holistic, awakened and enlightened perspective, such as Lada Ray’s and many of her followers. We want the best for ourselves in all respects, don’t we?
Lada Ray’s Quality of Life Criteria include 22 major values, including:
Infrastructure, roads, technology and Internet, transportation, cultural and historic richness and beauty, leisure and entertainment, climate and weather, housing quality and affordability, cost of living, food and restaurants, levels of pollution, business and careers, how holistic and spiritual the location is, nature and natural beauty, medical and holistic/spa services, education, cleanliness, community, law and order, political stability, economic stability. (Complete criteria listed in the report)
For added clarity and insight, report also includes an in-depth, illustrative overview and interpretation of Lada Ray’s Quantum and Geo Calibrations.
Easy to read, extensive Quality of Life Geo Calibrations Table includes all continents, 120 countries, many major regions and cities.

Much more in PART 1!
Many great questions arrived before, during and after live webinar from our LIVE participants. We answered as many as possible during the webinar. We have decided that we’ll answer additional questions we were unable to cover, in the future videos. We’ll post these videos FREE on Lada Ray YouTube, for everyone’s benefit; best and most interesting questions will be chosen. Expect first videos appearing towards the end of this week! Links to be posted on FT, and on your private Trump Webinar page – check back in a week or so!
Here are some of the Q&A highlights:
1. Real reason Melania Trump doesn’t want to move to the White House
2. Will Trump survive his first term? Lada Ray predictions, Trump timeline and how it may have changed due to some early actions by Trump.
3. Quantum Calibrations for: Donald Trump, Rex Tillerson, VP Mike Pence, USA as a whole, Russia as a whole, US-Russia relations.
Other questions Lada answered include:
1. Underpopulated Russia and overpopulated China: the risks. Chinese nukes near Russian borders. Russia-China cooperation and joint development of the Far East and Siberia.
2. The shift in Russia-Japan relations and Japan-US relations. Will Trump remove the US military base from Okinawa?
3. Was the Japanese earthquake and tsunami that led to Fukushima a natural disaster, or was it deliberately orchestrated by the globalists? How was it done? What Lada sees.
4. Where it’s best to live in Russia. Emigration from the US to Crimea and Stavropol. Best cities to live in Russia.
5. Israel-Palestine conflict – who’s to blame? How will Trump approach relations with Israel? Shift in US-Israel and Russia-Israel relations.
6. US, Russia, Iran, Israel, Syria, the Middle East – what to expect? How the US is losing its grip on the Middle East.
7. Will Trump authorize the disclosure about aliens? Will Trump authorize the 9/11 truth disclosure? (Here we go into the 3D reality, plus what are Trump’s real role and real goals.)
8. What can Lightworkers do to assist this time of the Great Earth Shift?
9. Will there be a relief for the Mother Earth soon? Will Trump presidency be good or bad for the environment; what can we expect going forward? (In this answer we go into the human consciousness, fossil fuel and alternative energy, as well as ‘free energy.’ We discuss how the levels of human consciousness and how our way of life correspond with the level on which our consciousness vibrates.)
10. Were there alien bases in Antarctica? Was a secret base built there by the German Nazis during WWII? What really happened in Antarctica and WHEN? Forbidden history of Russia.
11. Is Melania like Jackie Kennedy? Melania Trump quantum calibrations, compared to Jackie Kennedy’s quantum calibrations. Lada’s opinion of both.
P.S. Almost forgot: in Q&A we also discussed Reinventing Collapse by D. Orlov and how I see the future of the US unfolding; where Orlov was right and where the US collapse will be entirely different from how he describes is. My terms explained: What is “The Mirror Collapse” and what do I mean when I say that “the US approaches collapse from the opposite direction than the USSR did.”
There were other interesting questions answered.
Much more info and predictions will be revealed in the upcoming webinars and in my book The Putin Enigma.

Russian Railways is working on the concept of a cargo train, which will be capable to carry from 300 to 600 tonnes of cargos at a speed up to 300 km per hour.
Cargo transit shipments from Europe to China by Russian high-speed railway will take two days instead of 60 days by sea, President of Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov said speaking at a meeting of the United Russia faction.
“We plan to reach China via Kazakhstan and to carry special high profit cargos to Europe via Russia, because a ship sails now 60 days, which is a long time. It sails round India and only than arrives to Europe. With a high speed (railway) transport we will be able to deliver goods in two days, and to earn extra money for our country,” he said.
Russian Railways’ main task for 2017 is the launch of the project and the start of the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high speed railway.
The Moscow-Kazan High Speed Railway’s total length will stand at around 770 kilometers. Trains may go at a speed of 350-400 kilometers per hour, and the time en route between the two cities could be 3-3.5 hours against the current 14 hours. According to Belozerov the railroad may be commissioned before 2022-2023.
The total cost of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway line is estimated at 1.068 trillion rubles ($16.8 bln). The Moscow-Kazan section may later be extended to China, connecting the two countries across Kazakhstan. According to the Russian Railways, the length of Moscow-Beijing railroad will be 7769 km, travel time – 32.8 hours (four times faster compared to current 130.4 hours). The average annual passenger traffic is estimated at 195 mln people.
China intends to provide 400 bln rubles ($6.5 bln) for the project of Moscow-Kazan high speed railway as a credit for 20 years and more than 100 bln rubles ($1.6 bln) as a contribution to the charter capital of the special project company.
The German Initiative Consortium (includes Siemens, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bahn and other companies) is ready to allocate 2.7 bln euros to finance the construction of the high-speed railway line and to attract up to 800 mln euros for the project.

SILK ROAD-ISLAMISM-MAIDAN-EURASIAN UNION
Where Uzbekistan falls on the new Eurasian map (2014)
Map of the Soviet Union: Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) is in purple, below Kazakh SSR
1. Uzbek SSR flag with Uzbek SSR crest superimposed (both based on the USSR flag and crest)
2. Today’s Uzbekistan flag (with decided influences from Muslim and US traditions)
Uzbekistan was always famous for its cotton and its food: cotton harvest
Famed Uzbek Plov, a very delicious dish, consisting of rice, meat, garlic and spices; carrots, raisins or other dried fruit could be added as well.
Vibrant Central Asian / Uzbek bazaars haven’t changed much since the times of the old Silk Road: local breads, vegetables and spices are sold.
The only difference: now women sell produce, while in medieval times only men were allowed to trade. A woman’s place was at home, cooking, cleaning, rearing children, while her face and body had to stay hidden at all times underneath a burqa.
It has to be strongly emphasized that this was a life of a woman in Central Asia before the 1917 Russian Revolution.
With all its shortcomings, the Revolution and new ideas by Lenin brought a true social revolution to backwards areas like Central Asia. Women suddenly could go to school, vote, gain professions and work outside of home.
Per Muslim custom, only males are allowed at President Karimov’s lavish funeral ceremony inside the historic Samarkand cemetery
PM Dmitry Medvedev, who has represented Russia at the late President Karimov’s funeral, consoles Karimov’s wife Tatyana Karimova and younger daughter Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva.
Notice that Karimov’s wife is Russian, and his daughter is married to a Russian, which we can tell by their names. Like in Kazakhstan, despite 25 years of ‘independence’ and attempts to distance away from Russia, national elites remain Russian-speaking and largely connected to Russia via education, culture, wives and various relatives.
The USSR invested untold billions into meticulously restoring and preserving the historic Silk Road city of Samarkand and another gem, Bukhara. If not for Soviet restoration and preservation, today little would be left of both.
Today, Samarkand is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Due to so many events happening at once, I’m trying something a little different: Briefly-Important. In this format, I have grouped several developments based on their geography. This one is about Asia-Eurasia.
The BIG EVENT the West is silent about: Foiled Color Revolution in Kazakhstan on My 21!
Some might say: big deal, after all, what’s Kazakhstan? Much like Ukraine, Kazakhstan isn’t important by itself, but it is extremely important in connection with Russia and as part of the Russian support system. As we have discussed before (more on that in future Earth Shift Reports), Russia is The Great Global Balancer & Stabilizer. Therefore, we must analyze everything that happens around Russia from this perspective. This means that attack on Kazakhstan is an attack on Russia.
While we all relaxed for the weekend, a full-scale color revolution against Nazarbayev was planned in Kazakhstan for May 21. Mass protests were pre-announced for May 20-21, weapons, subversive literature, money and alcohol were hidden in capital Astana and several major cities, where the explosion was supposed to happen simultaneously. A media and PR attack was prepared. Foreign fingerprints are very vivid. Soros, Endowment for Democracy and other US NGOs are implicated. Ukraine right sector’s hand was also in it.
The investigation is ongoing and arrests have been made.
I warned about this possibility in ESR1 reloaded: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? IS ASTANA, KZ, A NEW NWO CAPITAL? In it I explained the reasons Nazarbayev had premature presidential elections, as well as why Belarus’ Lukashenko is acting so strangely.
A similarly volatile situation is developing along the entire perimeter of the Russian borders, especially all over Central Asia and Caucasus (of which I also warned since 2014). Russia and those Central Asian/Caucasus ex-Soviet republics that have joined, or are planning to join Eurasian Union, are bracing for the rolling color revolution avalanche. Recent events in Armenia and in Nagorno-Karabakh (between Azerbaijan and Armenia) were also manifestation of the same. The fires were extinguished due to a prompt interference by Russia. Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are balancing on the brink. All this will intensify as more post-Soviet counties choose to get closer to Russia and/or join Eurasian Union.
There is another important reason the US is greatly intensifying its push for color revolutions. The reason is related to the TTIP and TPP push.
We’ll discuss all these past, present and future developments in a very important Earth Shift Report addressing Eurasia and Eurasian Union. Please stay tuned!
Russia-ASEAN Sochi Forum & Trade with Eurasian Union
Russia-ASEAN forum has recently ended in Sochi. The 12 countries, members of ASEAN, all were represented. ASEAN unites the countries of South-East Asia. In part this organization is economic and in part political. It’s interesting that in some part (off the books, of course), the member-countries have resolved to ‘be friends against China.’ See the list of the ASEAN member states.
Now, the most interesting part starts here. While being wary of China, ASEAN wants to be friends with Russia for so many reasons… During Sochi Summit, each ASEAN head of state had an audience with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Even more interesting: each of the heads of state complained of absolutely unprecedented pressure they experienced from the US not to come to Sochi. Yet everyone chose to come.
During both ASEAN and Japan events (read about PM Abe visit below), Russia struck a large number of business deals. Russian relations with ASEAN countries, such as Vietnam and Thailand, were traditionally good and productive. The result of this Russia-ASEAN summit in Sochi is that now ASEAN as the South-East Asia union will begin trading with Eurasian Union, leaders of which were also present at the summit.
The most interesting thing is that ASEAN and TPP partially overlap.
I’ll talk about the meaning and prospects of TPP in an upcoming surprise Earth Shift Report. We’ll also discuss why some countries hedge their bets and join TPP, while simultaneously trying to develop preferential trade relations with Russia. Where does this leave TPP and US?
Japanese PM Abe meets with Putin; is there hope for Russia-Japan relations?
Just before the Sochi Forum, also in May, Japanese PM Abe visited Moscow to meet with Putin. He complained of the same relentless pressure by the US not to come to Russia.
The result of the Abe-Putin negotiations also send a positive signal. Japan is trying to distance itself from the US, showing some level of independence. While it’s very, very far to some sort of normalcy in Russian-Japanese relations, the desire to put some distance from the US may push Japan closer to Russia.
I was asked whether this would happen soon.
It depends on the time perspective. I wouldn’t hold my breath for too much of a miracle for the next few years. The animosity towards Russia is too deeply ingrained in Japan. I hear that some Japanese are so far off that they even believe that Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombs were dropped by Russia! While of course everyone should know they were dropped by the US, unnecessarily to boot. How would you even begin re-training these people to think differently? I am not too optimistic about Japan, to be honest, although of course I am always for dialogue. The more dialogue the better of a chance to avoid wars and misunderstandings.
That said, Japanese investors and businesses will continue being active in Russia. New trade deals were signed in Moscow between Abe and Putin; Japanese investors are very eager to invest in Russia, trying to get their foot in the door while they can, for as long as the EU self-withdrew due to sanctions. ll this is a given.
A slow and gradual improvement of political relations will definitely follow, simply because doing business when the countries are at a standoff is very inconvenient.
However, we should never underestimate the wild factor of the US. As its economy and global reputation falters, US will become more and more aggressive in trying to keep its allies away from Russia, and artificially tethered to Uncle Sam. This is a recipe for color revolutions, regime change and sabotage. Sometimes they will temporarily succeed, slowing down the natural process (look at Obama’s appeasement attempt during his visit to Japan right after Abe met with Putin in Moscow).
But much worse things than an appeasement visit can happen to a rebelling vassal.
Remember Fukushima? When I talk about the deliberate attempt to poison all of our planet’s treasured and delicate oceans, kill marine life, dolphins and whales, I am not in the mood to choose my words. Those who are ready to kill all this to get their way with a country they want to punish are monsters and deserve everything that’s coming to them! As we discussed so many times before, we are dealing here with underdeveloped 5-year-olds with nukes and capacity to cause harm to others way beyond what they should possess.
Consequently, for now I am very lukewarm optimistic-to-neutral about Japan-Russia relations.
THIS IS A DEVELOPING GLOBAL TREND!
(See other trends: TRENDS & PREDICTIONS on LadaRay.info)
Japan, as many other countries at this time, will attempt to balance itself between not offending US too much, so not to be subjected to a new ‘natural’ catastrophe or a manufactured economic disaster, while simultaneously trying to develop better connections with Russia. The same is true for most Asian countries, as well as the EU (see my discussion of what’s going on in EU in following articles). The same trend is visible all over the globe.
This process will take time, but what is very important to understand is that every incremental step by Japan, and other US slaves, towards sovereignty, distancing from the US and re-balancing towards better relations with Russia, is slowly eroding the foundation of the waning US Empire and of the globalist grip on power.
Through these tiny, incremental steps we are observing the truly epic and historic process of re-balancing by the The Great Global Balancer of the human society on our planet (click on the link to read more).
You’ll be able to hear my detailed analysis and predictions re. EU, Japan, Asia, TTIP/TPP, and of course, Eurasian Union, in the upcoming surprise Earth Shift Reports!
