For the second day the horrific cannonade is continuing, as the missiles and arms stored at Ukraine’s largest arms depot in Balakleya, Kharkov Oblast, mass explode. Allegedly the wholesale destruction of the largest storage of offensive weapons in Ukraine began as a result of a fire. Ukraine military is being accused of creating the catastrophe.
Over 20 thousand people have evacuated from the nearby city of Balakleya. Locals continue fleeing in haste. Casualties are unknown, being hushed up by Ukraine authorities.
The infamous Balakleya arms depot stored weapons used to kill the people of Donbass. Fewer weapons left in Ukraine means fewer deaths in Donetsk and Lugansk. Among weapons stored at this facility were the feared Tochka-U and Grad missiles, which Kiev army had unleashed on LDPR.
The video below is a good quality compilation of footage shot from various vantage points. These are all eyewitness videos by locals from surround residential areas. At one point in the video you can see a stream of cars fleeing the exploding city.
In the end of the video, a male voice can be heard saying, ‘We must leave this country. This is the only correct solution.’
Radiation disaster in the making!
As a side note, the intel I receive is that Kiev army experiences a huge shortage of tanks and armored vehicles to attack Donbass.
To compensate for that, Poroshenko ordered to retrieve the old tanks and military vehicles once used by the USSR in Chernobyl remedial efforts and abandoned inside radioactive zone. Thousands of radioactive vehicles have been stored there. Now these are being repurposed by Kiev. Some are used as scrap, melted to manufacture new weapons; others are fixed up and sent straight to Donbass. Reportedly, a large percentage of the Kiev army ATO soldiers now suffer from radiation poisoning. Of course, the real condition and percentages of those affected are hushed up.
The newest worrying development: it appears Kiev decided to do the unthinkable – build a radioactive barrier between LDPR and Ukraine. Witnesses have been posting videos of Ukraine army hauling radioactive vehicles from Chernobyl and dumping them on the front line between LDPR and Kiev-controlled side. This includes heavy trucks and other machinery used by the USSR in Chernobyl remedial efforts. The result may be disastrous. All that radioactive machinery is moved through Ukraine countryside and cities, then maliciously dumped in E. Ukraine fields, possibly close to where people live and grow crops.
I want to reiterate and expand on my 2014-15 analysis and predictions for Ukraine:
The remnants of Ukraine, once a peaceful place I used to know years ago, is continuing on the road to self-destruction. I am sorry to say that for the territory we so far still call Ukraine, the worst is still to come.
Ukraine, formed as an integral part of the USSR, was always an artificial entity consisting of incongruent and mismatched parts. It could only exist in peace and prosperity under the strong umbrella and guidance of Russia and as part of a unified Russian state. Having acquired independence, it couldn’t deal with it. The breakup and rethinking of the future direction became unavoidable.
It would have been a lot better if the process of the breakup was peaceful and reasonable. However, the process of rethinking of the future of this South-Russian territory has to happen, whether we want it or not.
In less than 10 years time the name Ukraine (Ukraina) will become obsolete. It’ll happen gradually, probably several years into the future. Instead Novorossia and Malorossia will re-emerge, along with other long forgotten names, such as Tavria, Galitsia and Carpathian Rus. Most or all of these territories will rejoin Russia either as parts of Russian territory or closely-associated states.
I have extensively discussed Ukraine, Donbass, the unfolding disintegration and future prospects of these territories in several written Earth Shift Reports: ESR2, ESR3, ESR6 and ESR8. These reports can be read individually for a donation. Alternatively, all four Ukraine ESRs can be purchased together here: ESR Sets.

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.

IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
Much like the Mosul offensive in Iraq was supposed to be victoriously accomplished in time for US Presidential Elections on November 8, 2016, to give Hillary a boost, various terrorist plots in Russia and Donetsk were also planned to be completed by then for the same purpose. Plus, of course the big one: punish Russia.
We know that Mosul push went nowhere. No ‘Mission accomplished’ in Iraq.
Now let’s see what came out of multiple terrorist attempts in Russia.
This is a follow up to my recent Putin Makes His Move! Russian Economy Minister Alexey Ulyukaev Arrested for Corruption.
FSB FOILS MAJOR TERROR ATTACKS
Just days prior to US Elections on November 8, FSB began announcing detention of suspected terrorists and spies. Subversive cells’ arrests are continuing in Russia and Donetsk.
CIA and Kiev junta’s attempts to sabotage and terrorize CRIMEA turn sour
You may recall that several months ago there was a major attempt by Ukraine to infiltrate Crimea with its subversive operatives, who were supposed to bomb crucial infrastructure objects in order to create a humanitarian catastrophe. Confessions by said subversives, who turned out to be career officers of Ukrainian army, revealed that their acts were specifically aimed at disrupting Russian Duma Elections 2016.
More about it in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 11: ALL ABOUT 2016 RUSSIAN DUMA ELECTIONS.
Objects to be bombed included chemical and power plants, as well as hospitals and the famous Crimean Bridge. One-of-a-kind engineering feat, the massive Crimean Bridge, has been dubbed the project of the century. It will connect Crimea with mainland Russia through the Kerch Peninsula, bypassing Ukraine and, thus, alleviating pressure on Crimea. The construction is projected to be completed by the end of 2017-18.
The Ukraine terrorists were also supposed to mass-poison potable water. Crimea suffers from water shortage after in 2014 the Kiev junta destroyed the only ample water source, The North Crimean Canal, running through Ukraine and built by the USSR. You may recall that in August there were real battles on the border, when Kiev military attempted a veritable invasion into Crimean territory. While deflecting the multiple attacks and arresting armed subversive groups near the border, FSB and Russian Border Guard lost two men.
In late October – early November, another major terror group was arrested. This time the subversive acts were aimed at aiding Hillary and undermining Trump during US Elections. The head of this subversive group is a colonel of Ukraine GUR (State Office of Intelligence). It has to be noted that Russian Intelligence is called GRU (State Intelligence Office). It appears that the Ukraine GUR name was parroted after Russian, but so it wouldn’t seem too blatant, the letters were changed around.
Some of these groups were embedded since 2014, as sleeper cells. They were left behind by Kiev as Crimea transitioned to Russia, with stated purpose of later aiding the future attack on Crimea from within. Others infiltrated into Crimea in the past couple of years, taking advantage of the fact that the border between Ukraine and Crimea is still easily crossed, due to tight connections between the people on both sides.
The original Plan A was for Ukraine, US, and – as they saw it at the time – Turkey, to attack Crimea together and take it back from Russia. Turkey was supposed to have a pivotal role, manipulating the Turkish discontent with the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. Turkish nationalist groups and Crimean Tartar terrorists, armed by Turkey, began amassing in Kherson Oblast bordering Crimea on the Ukraine side.
But there was a problem: Putin for years managed to smartly neutralize Turkey and Erdogan by lucrative trade deals. To accomplish the US/Kiev plan (Qatar and Saudis were also in on the hit), Turkey needed to be tied to Ukraine-US alliance by blood, so there would be no turning back to good relations with Russia. Turkey had to be ‘subverted’ so a rift between Turkey and Russia would become irreparable.
This was attempted through the downing of the Russian Su24 in Syria in 2015 by the Turkish army. That incident, which shocked Russians and was likened by Putin to a knife in the back, nearly did put a stop to Russia-Turkey cooperation. But that turned out to be insufficient. Both Putin and Erdogan turned out too smart. Not to mention, Russian Intelligence turned out significantly ahead of the CIA.
Having figured out what was happening, Erdogan (with Russian intel’s help?) fired the main US asset in his government, PM Davutoglu (an ethnic Crimean Tartar). He also made insistent steps to reconcile with Russia. He had the intermediary help from Kazakh President Nazarbayev, who served as a bridge. When it was discovered that Erdogan is attempting to win back Putin’s friendship, a coup against him was organized by Turkish army officers on CIA payroll. Erdogan escaped capture and Gaddafi-like end by minutes, because Putin authorized Russian Intelligence to send him a timely warning.
The coup failed and past relations with Russia, including the most important element, energy cooperation and Turkish Stream, are being restored. Meanwhile, the plot backfired and Turkey-NATO cooperation is slowly but surely dying. Give NATO just a few years and it’ll be dead.
Incidentally, for his help in restoring Turkey-Russia relations, Nazarbayev was made pay through a color revolution attempt, which, of course, failed.
All about Turkey, how Russians warned Erdogan of the military coup, how the coup failed, how relations were reconciled and US/NATO lost Turkey as ally read in top-rated:
All about Kazakhstan color revolution attempt and terror attacks, as well as color revolution attempts in Armenia and other EAEU states, who and why organized them:
Video ESR9 Attack on Kazakhstan: Who Destabilizes Eurasian Union? (includes video of attempted attacks).
In the end, it became clear that Russia wasn’t destroyed economically through sanctions, oil price drop and ruble attacks, as US promised Kiev junta since 2014. Turkish gambit didn’t work out either.
And the result is, as I predicted in 2014! US is sick and tired of the whiny and inept Kiev and Poroshenko, while Kiev and Ukrainians are mad at US and EU for betrayal. As I was predicting since the VERY BEGINNING of the Ukraine saga: EU and US don’t know how to drop Ukraine as a hot potato, or squeezed out lemon they have no use for. When Trump takes office, my prediction will be complete: US will drop Ukraine.
You all recall one of my big 2014 predictions: Ukraine will begin turning away from the West and back towards Russia in 2016-18. By the end of 2018, this process will be complete.
And in this regard, also recall what I said in 2014: it’ll be all of Ukraine, not bits and pieces, as many suggested. No one seemed to hear me at the time, as everyone was bent on dividing Ukraine. Nope, it’ll be ALL of Ukraine. Possibly minus a few tiny pieces in the West, but even that is unlikely. This is my prediction since 2014 and it remains so. If my track record is any indication, you will see this prediction come true, as so many others before.
Having been denied the real war in Crimea, Kiev junta had no choice but to go to Plan B: subversive terror attacks. But, as many may know, Russian FSB and Intelligence are, shall we say, in the world’s top 2, if not 1. As Ukraine subversives activated, they began being apprehended.
Full video of one of the latest subversive’s arrests in Crimea, released by FSB:
Donetsk and Lugansk
Similar situation developed in Donetsk, capital of DNR (Eng: DPR). In the past 2-3 weeks MGB of DNR arrested at least 2 separate ukro-nazi and Ukraine subversive groups on its territory. MGB means Ministry of State Security. These groups were prepared to begin acts of terror and sabotage, similar to Crimea. Also detained were the suspected assassins of the legendary Donetsk commander Motorola, with the telling name «Misanthropic Division». Video in Russian about ukro-nazi «Misanthropic Division» and who they are: Кто такие «Misanthropic Division»? О предполагаемых убийцах Моторолы.
This is the video of the arrest of six alleged Motorola assassins from «Misanthropic Division», who bragged about it online:
The latest: also LNR (Lugansk) announced that they uncovered a plot to blow up the Schastie power plant. The canal feeding water to the power plant in question was mined by the Ukraine subversives. VIDEO announcement.
Major op in Moscow and St. Petersburg
In St. Petersburg and Moscow terrorist sleeper cells’ arrests continue. Since prior to US Elections, almost daily FSB has been detaining dozens of subversives.
Videos from various sources about detentions of subversives in St.Pete and Moscow. It has been confirmed that they were all members of ISIL, originally from Central Asia (in other words, members of these cells were Uzbeks, Tajiks, Kyrgyzs, Turkmens). They were preparing bombings in public places in both capitals. Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan special services aided in the arrests.
Collusion between ISIL, Kiev and CIA
We know that terror attacks in Crimea, Donetsk and Russia mainland were planned simultaneously. This clearly denotes a collusion between ISIL, Kiev junta and CIA. As if we needed more proof of that…
CIA evacuating from Kiev to Romania
I was asked whether it was true that CIA operatives were evacuating from Kiev. Yes, it’s true. In 2014 CIA took over the upper 4th floor of the SBU building in Kiev, where Ukrainians were banned from entering. American flag flew over that Ukrainian government building. After Trump election and arrests of subversives in Russia, CIA operatives have hastily evacuated all their papers and moved to Romania. Only CIA analysts (read surveillance, spies-monitors) remain in Kiev.
I can tell you more. This reminds me of one of the most shameful pages in human history: WWII. Anticipating the end, in 1944 Hitler Nazis were hastily burning and evacuating their papers and leaving behind sleeper cells to attack Russia later from within. Some of these cells were the Bandera ukro-nazis trained and left behind in Ukraine. It is the heirs of those Bandera followers who spread fascism all over Ukraine and executed the 2014 coup.
Fast-forward to the end of 2016. History repeats! Anticipating the beginning of the end, both CIA and Kiev junta are now busy embedding long-term sleeper cells all over Ukraine.
Odessa and Saakashvili resignation
In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT of 3/31/16, I predicted that Saakashvili would only be the governor of Odessa till 2017. My exact words were: ‘Meet international criminal, ex-president of Georgia and US agent, Mikhail Saakashvili, governor of Odessa 2015-2017.’ You can read these words in the ESR8 description by clicking above link. In the report you can further read why I said that. Saakashvili resigned his post on November 7, 2016 (this sly fox wanted to position himself for the new US president). Saakashvili resignation will officially go through in the beginning of 2017, right on the dot, per my prediction.
Maidan 3.0 developing in Kiev
Protests headed by opposition leaders Evgeny Muraev and Rabinovich (Party Za Zhisn’ -For Life) demand the sacking of the head of Central Bank Gontareva and Ukraine currency back at pre-2014-coup rate of 8 grivnas per dollar.
Sure, keep dreaming… These are, of course, purely populist slogans. You can’t have strong currency after you’ve destroyed your economy. The problem is also that a catastrophic winter is ahead, while utilities charges keep climbing. Some Ukrainians won’t survive this winter.
MY PLANS FOR NEXT FEW WEEKS
How long has Poroshenko and Kiev junta got? Not too long now. What should we expect in Ukraine next? Secession movements in Western Ukraine? Will Maidan 3.0 materialize? Who’s really protesting against whom? I’ll discuss all this in a separate video, which will be released soon.
Next week I’ll also have a new piece (it’ll be either an article or a video) on the spectacular turnaround in Moldova and Bulgaria elections – the situation is developing exactly as predicted in ESR8 and my earlier Moldova articles.
I plan to go over the heating up situation in Pridnestrovie, as well. The sly Putin’s plan re. Pridnestrovie and Moldova and what to expect in the region in the next few years. (Also watch video: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)
Following my Trump win prediction coming true, I plan a follow up video on Trump, whether Hillary will go to jail, and more.

Lada Ray PREDICTIONS
Dear friends and followers!
Thank you for your wonderful continued support and donations!
I really appreciate it!
9/11/16: NEW FACTS EMERGE! READ ON FOR THOSE & FOR ADDED LADA RAY INSIGHT!
It’s the ‘Belorussian conspiracy,’ as the West immediately touted it! But even if banned for their act of defiance, Belorussain athletes have already won something that no money can buy: they won the admiration of their country and they won the hearts of Russians for their bravery! And isn’t it what the TRUE spirit of Olympics supposed to be about? Too bad the TRUE spirit of sport is conspicuously absent from #Rio2016 Olympics and Paralympics.
It’s one of the most inspiring moments I’ve seen in a long time. Thanks to FuturisTrendcast contributor Nemo-Stanislav @ Stanislavs.org for this image!
Paralympic whistleblowers reported that president of Paralympic Committee, a British national and first-rate Russophobe Lord Craven (and note how well his name depicts his essence!), admitted that the overriding goal of banning Russian Paralympians was that ‘Russian flag would not fly at Rio Paralympics.’ Craven also remarked that if IOC was unable to ban entire Russian team, he was determined to finish the job.
In other words, like in the old fable about a wolf preparing to eat an innocent lamb, the only fault of Russian Paralympians was that the wolf was hungry.
Surely, there is a very good reason for any Russophobe to be afraid of the Russian flag flying at Paralympics: Russian para-athletes rose to the top very quickly and won hands down both London and Sochi Paralympics. If Russian team isn’t there, then US and UK teams are on top and medals for them become easy pickings. But as I asked before, how much are such cheat-medals worth without top para-athletes competing?
Of course, this is just a cherry on top. The real reason for banning Russian team is to destabilize Russian society by creating an element of discontent (along with other elements of discontent through sanctions, ruble and oil price drop, etc.). The ultimate goal is to hurt United Russia’s chances of winning September 18 Duma elections, thus weakening Putin’s support just over one year before Russian Presidential Elections of 2018.
But so far previous plans of the US/UK/West have backfired. So did this one.
In the absence of Russia at Rio Paralympics the Belarus team has picked up the torch, so to speak, and carried Russian flag at the opening ceremony.
Oops, so much for the ‘Russian flag not flying at Rio Paralympics.’
Way to go, BelaRUS!
ADDED: I just learned from Life.ru that Belarus Paralympians advised in advance the Belorussian President Lukashenko of their intention to bring Russian flag to the Opening Ceremony of the Rio Games, despite direct ban of Paralympic Committee. Lukashenko reportedly supported the idea: ‘If they decide to punish us, we are ready. We won’t sell out our brothers (Russians),’ said Lukashenko. The Russian flag was brought into the opening ceremony in secret by Andrey Fomochkin on his body. He unveiled the flag when Belarus team entered the Rio stadium. Belorussian papers touted Fomochkin’s act as a real man’s deed.
Newest info: Paralympic Committee confiscated Russian flag and began investigation into the incident. It already punished the Athletic Director of Belarus team Andrey Fomochkin, denying his Rio accreditation.
However, both Andrey Fomochkin and Belorussian Paralympians won something already, which no money or status can buy: they won the hearts of Russians. Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called Fomochkin a hero. Belarus government spokesman said that the country was 100% behind its athletes. There is no proof of any wrongdoing by Russian para-athletes, he added.
Meanwhile Russia is preparing a number of lawsuits and personal damages legal actions in European courts against Paralympic Committee, WADA, USADA, Lord Craven and McLaren. Russia also repeatedly said that Paralympics and WADA took the wrong turn and that they need to be reformed.
ADDED! More new details emerge: Andrey Fomochkin was only able to carry the Russian flag for 1/4 of the Rio stadium when it was taken away from him and he was banned on the spot. Too late: it was enough for a ton of pics to get taken and to flood the net! Later, one more Belarus team member’s accreditation was taken away. So far most of the team is still there, but the members brace themselves for more sanctions!
This is why I have said all along: ONLY the alternative competition and alternative games, such as Eurasian or Friendship Games will solve the problem. Or resurrect the once mega-successful Good Will Games!
But again, I must stress that the pressure on Russia will continue until after the 18th – the date of the Duma elections (see below re. my upcoming Russian Elections Earth Shift Report!).
More pics of the Russian flag carried during opening ceremony by Belarus team:
Another inspiring moment: earlier during Rio Olympics Russian and Ukrainian athletes posed and embraced together to demonstrate their friendship and solidarity. For that Ukraine athletes were threatened by their government officials upon return home. More about that in: Earth Shift and 4D Hybrid War: #RioOlympics Lessons and Next Moves by Russia.

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.
