What’s the right term: Isis vs. ISIS vs. ISIL vs. IS? Is Assad Good or Evil?

I am pleased to announce that I am starting a new TESTIMONIALS page on LadaRay.info

The best testimonials & reviews re. ESRs, FT articles and more, will be posted on this page: LINK.

Here is one such testimonial/review for ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR, which I greatly appreciate:

  1. I want to thank you for taking time to present your insight and worldly view in such a clear, concise manner. I am a Pennsylvania (USA) and as our nation wakes up and realizes the extent to which we have been lied to and manipulated, your voice presents the story the rest of the world already knows. You should be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize for fostering understanding (not that I don’t now know how rigged all these accolades truly are). At a bare minimum your are an Ambassador of Peace and Understanding to our world. Thank you again. Teresa D. Preston

New Ask Lada episode based on reader feedback to Lada Ray’s 

Earth Shift Report 13: ERDOGAN’S WAR

  1. These ESRs just get better and better. Thirteen is definitely a smart bomb, as in bombshell report. This is really good intel and presented in a cogent and highly interesting manner. I trust Erdogan as far as I can throw him but I’m confident that Putin will handle him just fine.
    Now we wait for the next set of dirty tricks from the West. I bet the coding on those nukes at Incirlic is changing every 24 hours now. So… I want to know more about Syria… especially the presidente and his beautiful wife. Are they bad guys or are they doing good for Syria like Qaddafi was doing for Libya? Thanks, Lada; super job on this report.

Lada’s response

  • US nukes in Turkey 

    Yes, it is becoming dangerous to keep US nukes in Turkey, that’s why Erdogan has so much leverage over US & NATO, which I expect him to use. He’ll be playing double game, as I explained in ESR13. Basically, US/NATO are his hostages and this will eventually end badly. Definitely expect more events in Turkey, such as terror acts, Kurds’ uprisings, etc. But Erdogan isn’t a dummy. If provoked, he’ll retaliate vs. US/NATO, as he demonstrated already. Eventually this will lead to breakup. For now, it’ll continue weakening and eroding NATO.

    Who is Assad; is he good or evil?

    Every country deserves its president. Not everything had been smooth in the past, and the word ‘tyrant’ sounded now and then in regards to Assad’s father, Hafez al-Assad. There were accusations of supposed chemical attacks, ‘autocratic rule’ and ‘slaughter of the innocents’ against Hafez, and more recently, Bashar al-Assad, by ‘Syrian opposition.’ However, knowing who finances said ‘opposition,’ we should take anything they say with a giant rock of salt.

    There may have been tyrannical tendencies by Assad Sr. But Bashar al-Assad isn’t like his father; he is a pretty mild-mannered man, a physician by trade, who didn’t want to be at the helm of the country. Sounding strange for a Western or Russian ear, in the Middle East the term ‘president’ is in fact psychologically equated with a hereditary sultan. In such circumstances, shall we say, destiny called him to duty.

    I can tell you confidently that he was meant to be where he is. Assad is just what his country needs right now; he’s the only person capable of uniting Syria and its multi-national, multi-confessional population. He clearly enjoys a large majority support.

    The so-called opposition can only be this aggressive and this demanding that he should step down because US supports and encourages it. Take away US support and financing and the opposition won’t have nearly as much pull. That said, a certain amount of opposition and healthy criticism is good for any country, and should be present to keep powers that be in line.

    However, what’s happening in Syria is clearly foreign-induced, by entities whose interests are contrary to the interests of the people of Syria. Assad has some vicious Middle East neighbors, specifically Saudis and Qatar, who try to use weaknesses to arm those who oppose him; and of course there’s the US factor, bent on regional destabilization at all cost. Assad’s biggest crime is that he didn’t succumb to US/Qatar/Saudis pressure and maintained his sovereign, friendly to Russia and Iran, stance. For this he is being punished.

    If we knew nothing else about Assad, if we just knew that he didn’t succumb to threats or bribes of the US and Saudis/Qatar – that alone would be enough, in my opinion, to form a positive opinion of him.

    Considering he didn’t even want to be at the helm of the country, his steadfastness, presence of mind and quiet courage are phenomenal. And yes, his wife, Asma al-Assad, is very lovely; she is definitely the queen material – and I mean not by birth, but by her aura and poise. I believe she is the right person to stand by him, and from the energy I perceive, she is, in big part, the one who gives him courage to withstand the enormous pressure. They both have demonstrated that they are made of a lot sturdier and quality material than many anticipated.

    I had previously compared Assad to Qaddafi. The problem with Qaddafi is that he naively and short-sightedly believed he could bargain with the US/West. Assad never did. Another problem: Qaddafi failed to make friends and that was what in the end got him killed. Assad made sure he had some very serious friends, as Syrian events have shown. Much of Qaddafi’s problems apply to Saddam, who didn’t believe till last moment the West could begin a full-scale war against him. Incidentally, Russians warned Saddam, but he brushed these warnings aside! He also bet on the wrong horse. This is the crucial difference between Assad and the other two.

    Till recently, Turkey was among those who attacked Assad and demanded his resignation. But soon after August 9 Putin’s meeting with Erdogan, we’ll see a drastic turnaround in Turkey’s attitude towards Syria.

    Read about Assad and Syria in detail in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER, including the role and interests in Syria of US, Saudis, Qatar, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Israel. More Syria updates are in ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.  And of course, lots of Lada’s valuable intel, unique analysis and predictions in latest ESR13!

     

    Oli Gulliver

    Again an interesting journey into the realms of geopolitics, social psychology and the prediction of developments. You’re gifted with so many talents and a heartfelt sympathy for the common people, so I’m very thankful for your contributions and for your fighting on the right side. The coup in Turkey is explained by you in a convincing way.

    Btw, could you please substitute the term “ISIS” (it’s better to say Isil, IS, Daesh). “Isis” is an old Egyptian and Greece goddess. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. Words matter …

Lada’s response

I can certainly understand the indignation at the usage of ISIS, which sounds just like Isis. It reminds me how Hitler usurped Swastika, the beautiful ancient symbol of our sun/galaxy, as well as the word Arian, turning both evil. There are other similar cases in history.

I sympathize with the emotional response of those who follow the Isis worship. It seems doubly unfair that a word symbolizing the sacred feminine is seemingly usurped by an extremist anti-women’s rights, Islamist sect. Like others, I also emotionally dislike that such nice words have been tarnished by darkness.

However, in my geopolitical and multi-dimensional analysis I invite you to get beyond emotions and to the very core of the truth.

Words are just tools, much like a hammer is a tool; they are neutral. Hammer can be used to build a lovely home, or it can be misused to inflict bodily harm. Same with words.

Alas, dark entities and deeds may turn words evil that have been neutral, or formerly carried a positive meaning. Look how evil entities managed to turn the formerly lovely Ukraine into a terrorist state, making the word ‘Ukraine’ highly undesirable, and even hated. The very words ‘evil’ and ‘darkness’ did not originally carry any negative connotation. It were humans who assigned them such connotation to fill the gap within the third-dimensional reality of duality and contrast.

Therefore, rising above third-dimensional duality, ISIS is an abbreviation, not a word, and it is the most accurate term. It’s unfortunate that it coincides with the name of goddess Isis. ISIS means Islamic State of Iraq & Syria. 

IS – Islamic State – is not accurate since it may be confused with any random legitimate Islamic state on the planet, and I can see many objecting to that. Besides, it’s also what ISIS calls itself: why would you want to indulge the terrorists and call them their preferred name?

ISIL is equally inaccurate: it means Islamic State of Iraq & Levant. Levant is an outdated British colonial term, referring to the large territory, including Syria, Libya, Lebanon and Egypt. Hence, it refers to Western colonialism, plus, it implies the enlarged territory of ISIS. Instead of shrinking it, which should be everyone’s goal, ISIL assigns it more territory, in concurrence with USA’s goal in the Middle East. Therefore, ISIL is a subtle mind-manipulation, and so is IS.

You may have noticed that I usually qualify it by calling it ISIS/Daesh/Al Nusra, therefore there can be no mistake that I am NOT referring to the ancient goddess, but to the Islamist terrorism phenomenon.

Hope my comprehensive explanation is sufficient to put this issue to rest.

Afterthoughts + Announcements

The world continues going through a tectonic Earth Shift, and everything around us is accelerating. I can’t believe that it’s been barely three days since I published ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR! So much has happened since, and continues happening!

On August 9 Putin hosted Erdogan and scores of Turkish military, politicians & business people, who were eager to get back on track and begin making deals. Huge turnarounds in various spheres are already happening, big announcements are being made (at least by Turkish and Bulgarian sides) in regards to Turkish Stream/South Stream, NATO bases and US precarious position in Turkey, plus the new page in Russia-Turkey-Syria relations. As you’ve read in ESR13, just before Erdogan, Putin met with leaders of Azerbaijan and Iran. The next day after Erdogan, Putin received the president of Armenia. All these events, following each other in close proximity, are interconnected. New, just recently unimaginable, alliances are starting to materialize. As predicted in ESR13, all this is a huge win for Russia and a huge loss for the US.

I’ve promised you all an update on Erdogan – Putin St. Petersburg meeting, the surrounding events and their Earth Shifting consequences. Those who have purchased ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR will be able to read the update first: it’ll be posted as ADDENDUM at the bottom of the report this Saturday. Later, the update will appear as free article on FT.

As Erdogan and Putin were preparing to meet, Ukraine attempted to attack Crimea twice in 2-3 days. Fire was exchanged, Russian Federal Security officer and a serviceman were killed, and a number of trained Ukrainian terrorists, complete with explosives and terror equipment, were taken prisoner by FSB.

You may not be surprised to learn that this attack is connected to Erdogan’s visit. But connections are much wider than that. This attack has direct bearing on US presidential elections and Russian Duma elections in September. It also comes after Russian government has announced that Crimea would become part of a larger Federal District.

The implications of the attack are far-reaching. Minsk and Normandy negotiations formats are affected; LDNR (DPR/LPR) status may change in a very positive way – I’ll discuss that in the forthcoming report; and the near future of Ukraine may become even more unstable. Who is behind this desperate attack, which could have never succeeded, who benefits from it and who gave the order?

Meanwhile, a coup to unseat Poroshenko is brewing in Kiev. Will he survive it, and what happens if he doesn’t? Lots of questions and they demand answers. I’ve been planning a new ESR: CRIMEAN AGENDA, but it has been on back burner. This may be just the time to release it! Stay tuned for more info!

Last but not least! UK PM Theresa May and Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation, in which they agreed to a personal meeting. This is good news. The events following Brexit vote have been developing just as I predicted in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU. I’ve been meaning to release a follow-up, with a broader outreach. The working name for the new ESR is BREXIT DOMINO EFFECT. Stay tuned for details!

Discovering The Real Belarus – with awesome pics!

Belarus 2

In this post we are offering you an rare glimpse of the many facets of Belarus. There has been a stigma attached to Belarus in the West, while the real understanding and truthful assessment of what’s happening in those parts is non-existent. West-dominated global media has simply accepted the claim that Belarus is a dictatorship and until recently it was generally accepted in the West that if Belarus hasn’t fallen apart yet, it surely soon will.

The truth is entirely different, of course. Just to give you an idea of a typical Western MSM bashing approach, here is an excerpt from UK’s ‘Independent.’

WARNING! This 2012 piece from UK’s publication ‘Independent’ will probably make you roll your eyes and shake your head due to how badly it misses the mark and because in 2016 WE KNOW what subsequently happened to the countries and leaders mentioned in it. But I want to assure you that it’s not the focus of our article. The only reason I mention the ‘Independent’ piece is to provide a perspective and so you could understand fully what Belarus is up against and what kind of madmen we are dealing with in the West.

After this, we will proceed to our today’s Belorussia feature. FT contributor Stanislav Sokolov (Nemo) and I have prepared a real treat for you! But that’s for sweet desert. Before we get to that, here’s a telling excerpt from the ‘Independent.’ Note that the article below was written and an interview was taken by a former Russian, working for ‘Independent,’ whose personal views coincide with typical Western propaganda.

The ‘Independent’ excerpt:

LINK: What’s so good about democracy anyway? Audience with the last dictator in Europe – 2012

QUOTE: As President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko has made the former Soviet state a pariah nation. In a rare interview, he says that it’s security rather than freedom that his people really want.

Alexander Lukashenko

It is said you can judge a man by the company he keeps. If so, Alexander Lukashenko – President of Belarus for the last 18 years – is sending out worrying signals.

Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian President whose regime has overseen the massacres of Houla and Daraya, is described as “wonderful” and “an absolute European, civilized man”. Colonel Gaddafi is name-dropped, as is Saddam Hussein.

Sat amid the faux grandeur of his offices in Minsk, he recalled the cosy chats he once shared with the former Libyan autocrat – “I told him: ‘Muammar, you need to sort things out with Europe yourself!’ Then he told me about his relationship with Sarkozy” – and more darkly about how the West turned on his old Iraqi confidant.

“American envoys came to see me before the crisis in Iraq and asked me to say that there were nuclear weapons in Iraq. I refused. They even told me that things would go well for Belarus in terms of investments, etc. All I had to do was to support them.

“I told them that I couldn’t do it because I knew that there were no nuclear weapons there. And, after talking to Hussein back then, I told them that Hussein was ready to come to an agreement with them regarding oil, if that’s what they were after, and other things. Just don’t bomb; don’t destroy the country! He was ready to show – and showed – all these [alleged WMD] sites.

“Their answer was: ‘We believe you, but the war machine’s engine is already running too fast.’ I swear to you that this conversation took place and that a man came to see me and we were discussing this matter in this very room.”

With that he leant back and stared intently at me. An imitation fire flickered in the hearth, the plastic logs casting a febrile glow across the left-side of his face.

“It’s a double standard,” he insisted with some justification. “Americans want to make us democratic. Go make Saudi Arabia democratic! Do we look like Saudi Arabia? Far from it! Why not make them democratic? Because he is a son of a bitch, but he is our son of a bitch.

“You’re bandits. Democratic bandits. You’ve destroyed thousands, maybe millions of people [in Iraq and Afghanistan].” He exclaimed: “I’m living through being democratised with a truncheon on the head by the West every day. Who needs that kind of democracy?”

Authoritarianism is still prevalent in former Soviet states. It was why I had wanted to visit Belarus and meet its leader. I wanted a reminder of where we had come from. To my disquiet, what I found was a warning of what might happen if other ex-Soviet countries in the region turn away from Europe and back towards the past.

Google Lukashenko and the prefix you find most given is “Europe’s last dictator”. It was a moniker coined in 2005 by the United States when it called on the people of Belarus to cast off the “yoke of tyranny”.   (END QUOTE)

LADA’S NOTES

What can I add to this? Everything’s clear, isn’t it? What an absolute fiasco of an article. I literally have never seen a publication or a ‘journalist’ manage to put their foot in their mouth so many times in the course of several paragraphs. Lukashenko was, after all, right about weapons of mass destruction and Iraq invasion, about Gaddafi, about Assad, Saudi Arabia, USA, and West in general. Moreover, he turned out a lot more right in his approach towards building and preserving his country than the bordering Ukraine, previously the darling of the West among post-Soviet states. All one has to do is recall Ukraine’s 2014 ukro-nazi color revolution and its catastrophic consequence of civil war, economic destruction and country’s breakup.

How fascinating it is to read that clueless 2012 article from the height of the knowledge and experience we possess in 2016. How much food for thought and how many lessons it brings to light!

Belarus

2016 map of Belarus and surrounding countries

In 2015 I visited Belarus and its capital Minsk. I was invited to deliver a high-level consultation on geopolitical and global economic developments, followed by an offer of a long-term consulting position. I talk more about that in my recent post: Eurasia Developments: Belarus Monetary Reform; Moscow World’s Most Dynamic City; Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence.

Belarus, also called Belorussia, is the western-most post-Soviet republic, which first acquired independence in 1991, after then heads of Russia (Yeltsin), Belarus and Ukraine met in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, a famous nature preserve on Belorussian territory, and decided to go their separate ways. The Belovezhskaya Pushcha Agreement is considered by many in the post-Soviet space illegal; there are growing demands to annul it and classify it as treason. Whether there is any chance of that happening is a different story, which I’ll touch upon in one of the future Earth Shift Reports.

Before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution Belarus was an integral part of Russia. Before the independence was handed to Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic on a platter in 1991, Belarus never had any history of statehood. Belorussian language was in fact considered a western-Russian dialect, much like the Ukrainian language.

As a linguist I can tell you that compared to Belorussian, Ukrainian dialect was infinitely more developed and prominent, and had more characteristics of a language. For one: a number of big authors wrote in it, which is one of the required characteristics for a language status. The most prominent such author is a 19th century Russian literary genius Nikolay Gogol; others worth mentioning: Taras Shevchenko, Lesia Ukrainka and Grigory Skovoroda. Two: several million spoke Ukrainian, which again isn’t sufficient, but a helpful characteristic to classify a dialect as a language. None of these characteristics are present in Belorussian.

That said, even the exceptionally developed southern-Russian, aka, Malorussian/Ukrainian was still a dialect. Most writers, such and Gogol, still primarily used Russian language in their work; in cities, such as Kiev, people mostly spoke Russian, while in villages mostly Ukrainian or a mix.

Let’s also recall that the area surrounding Kiev and what is today central Ukraine was traditionally called Malorossia (aka Russia Minor, as opposed to The Greater Russia). The words ‘Ukraine’ and ‘Ukrainian’ came from Polish. These words don’t need a translation in any Slavic language, simply meaning ‘on the edge’ or ‘outskirts.’ The 19th century Polish and Austria-Hungarian landlords labeled so the poor villagers who were under their yoke in western Ukraine. It was later that the label was expanded to central Ukraine and Kiev, which wasn’t considered a part of Ukraine.

By 1922, Lenin insisted that the core Russian territories of east and south be added to Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. The reason was geopolitically and politically expedient at the time, but it created a long-term disaster, as we are seeing today. I lay out the entire spread on the issues of Ukraine, Malorossia, its true history and language issues, why Lenin made such disastrous decisions, and much more in my Ukraine-dedicated Earth Shift Reports: ESR2, ESR3 and ESR6.

Both Ukrainian and Belorussian dialects were given the status of languages by Lenin during the formation of the USSR in 1922. Compared to Ukrainian/Malorussian, Belorussian dialect was much less developed, being its poor cousin. Therefore, it has taken a lot more effort, with very little result, to mold a dialect into any semblance of a proper language. Despite the widespread availability of the artificially created Belorussian language, most in Belarus speak Russian.

Belorussian President since 1994, Alexander Lukashenko, has been labeled by the West ‘the last dictator of Europe.’ Belarus and Lukashenko have been under Western sanctions since 1990s and to this day very few Western countries have diplomatic relations with Belarus.

Yet, as I discussed in IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?, Belarus expertly navigated the turbulent waters of the Western-financed color revolutions and economic crises and is still doing pretty well, avoiding many potential disasters.

Moreover, Lukashenko, whom I call ‘the sly fox,’ managed to capitalize on Ukraine’s problems, on the rift between EU and Russia and on anti-Russian sanctions. Sometimes he plays a peacemaker or gracious host, as in the case of hosting Ukraine-DNR/LNR Minsk negotiations with Putin, Hollande and Merkel. The result of that was that some of the long-standing anti-Belarus sanctions came off.

On the other hand, capitalizing on the Russian sanctions, Belarus engaged in piracy and illegal distribution: for example, enterprising Belorussians would import banned produce and goods from the EU, then slap Belorussian labels on them and pass them on the Russian market as their own. This underhanded approach offended Russians and even caused a public clash between Putin, when he pointed out the facts of piracy, and Lukashenko. Under Putin’s pressure, Lukashenko was eventually forced to crack down on illegal bait-and-switch, and relations normalized again. 

Lukashenko is a sly fox and an outspoken eccentric, who once in a while does put his foot in his mouth. But for the time being he is the only leader who can keep Belarus together and in pretty good shape, especially considering the mess in the nearby Ukraine and Baltics. Moreover, Belarus, along with Kazakhstan, plays an exceedingly important role as a support system for Russia in her role as the Great Global Balancer. Belarus also actively participates in the shaping up of the new, multi-polar world. For this reason, Lukashenko is forgiven his lapses and eccentricities and Belarus is treated by Russia with kid gloves.

Read all this and much more juicy intel and Lada Ray original, off-the-beaten-path predictions about Belarus and Lukashenko in ESR1 reloaded: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? (Lukashenko’s Bluff).

And here is the treat I promised! And did I mention that Stanislav is also an awesome photographer? Check out a treasure trove of his Minsk pics! Along the way of his travels Stanislav also visited Helsinki, Finland, so we have thrown in a couple of images of Helsinki as well.

In the end, I’ll have a few afterthoughts and clarifications of my own.

Travelogue: DISCOVERING BELARUS

by Stanislav Sokolov (Nemo)

This article is a series of observations from my recent week-long trip to Minsk and surroundings, and will be comprised of a few sketched notes around some general topic that I observed, which together will hopefully help create a picture of Belorussia. It was the first time I visited Belorussia – I haven’t been there even while living in USSR and was curious as to how the land and the people fared.

Interestingly, my trip went through Finland – another country that I visited for the first time. Despite the turbulent history of the 20th century, Finns still keep the history of their federative association with the Russian Empire, keep the monuments and stellas, and do not re-write history as is the want in the other Western European countries.

Only a few Western European countries have diplomatic relation with Belorussia, and Finland is one of them. I could have applied for Belorussian visa in Finland, but I chose another venue, contacting consular services at the Minsk airport, submitting all the paperwork there beforehand, and getting my visa on arrival.

Roads and transportation

The first thing that meets you when driving from Minsk airport is the road. One of an exceptionally high quality. And this high standard of quality roads persists not only in the capital itself, but also outside – in the surrounding towns that I travelled to. Another thing that Belorussia is famous for, is its railroad network. You can set clock by departures and arrivals, and travelling by rail is a real pleasure. There are modern regional trains and well as trains with cars from the Soviet period, though maintained with care. Belorussia is the only country of the former USSR that has not squandered its Soviet heritage, but built on it and multiplied it.

An interesting detail: all the man-hole covers in the streets are new and, moreover, painted to prevent them from rusting. In Lithiania, for example, all manhole covers are from 70s-80s and are thoroughly worn-out. Or take the traffic lights… The vast majority of them are of a modern bright LED kind, with the central circle showing the number of seconds until the light shifts from red to green or back, allowing the drivers to plan their acceleration and breaking. All are small details, but quite telling.

Industry and agriculture

The second thing you notice are the fields, ploughed and planted. The land is not left idle and in desolation, as is the case in the neighbouring Lithuania, but is serving the country’s needs as well as producing enough surplus for export. The industrial complex is also intact and fully functional. A small fragment of an impression: my hotel room was equipped with flat-panel TV and a Peltier element mini-bar. This is expected of any world hotel with a name to itself. But while in most countries the TV and the mini-bar would have been made in China or Malaysia, here they were Made in Belarus. I checked. The TV model, by the way, is called Horizont – a mark that I’ve known since the Soviet times. I am quite particular when the picture quality is concerned, and I would give that TV quite high marks.

Minsk

Coming to Minsk, I felt an acute sense of deja-vu, like I’ve already been there. And then I realised that I felt myself like in Moscow of my youth, back in the 80s. It was the combination of many factors. People speaking Russian in the kind of ‘a’-sounding dialect typical of Moscow (I’ll come back to the language later). The vast expanses – wide roads, wide pavements, distance between blocks that can be up to 100 meters. In Western Europe I became accustomed to the compact, overcrowded building plan, and did not realise what I was missing of the old days. Then there is a feeling of security and stability – something that you never feel now days in a big city. I walked around Minsk by night and all was quite and orderly. And finally, the architecture was also reminding me of the centre of Moscow.

That’s not a coincidence, by the way. Belorussia got the brunt of the first hit from the German Nazis. Everything was wiped out. Of the whole historic Minsk, all that remains are a dozen houses in the Trinity Neighbourhood. The rest of Minsk was razed to the ground by the Germans. After the War, it was rebuilt in the neo-Classical style that you see today.

Today, the city of Minsk is getting a lot of modern buildings – you can see a lot of construction sites a little bit off from the centre. The apartments can either be bought privately (with loan level, comparable to most Western European countries) or with state subsidy. Besides, Minsk is expanding it’s Metro system with the 3rd line being built now.

Another characteristic feature of Minsk (as well as other towns of Belorussia) is their cleanliness. You won’t see any litter in the streets – not a scrap of paper, not a cigarette stub. And the reason for this lies not only in the nightly cleaning/washing of the streets. It is primarily in the mindset of the people. As one of the locals told me: you wouldn’t throw litter around your house, so why would you around your city? I think that is an important, fundamental feeling when you know that the land you live on is yours too, and not just some abstract state.

Shops and food

Whichever shop you come into, the assortment and quality of food is impressive. In my conversations with the locals, I got to know that the state owns only about 20% of the stores, while the rest is private business. The shelves are full of local produce, with a few imports. Below is an exhibition window of a bakery shop Karavai – a must-stop for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Eating out is also a pleasure – there are a lot of places to choose from, catering to all kinds of tastes. I found one restaurant, serving delicious selections of Russian “varenniki” and “pelmeni” – stretching it a bit, you can call that a kind of pasta. The place is called Gurman, and though it is a walking distance from some of the tourist points of interest in Minsk, it is frequented by the locals.

Language

Language is both a big and a small issue, depending on how you look upon in. As we’ve seen on the example of Ukraine, language (or an artificial separation of dialects into languages) can be used divide people and start wars.

Simply put, everywhere I went, everyone was speaking Russian. And, moreover, the type of speech typical for Moscow, with the predominant “a” sound where “o” would be written. (Moskva becomes Maskva, Belorussia becomes Belarusia). It is written Belorussian that makes one pause. Jokingly, people told me that they write with all the grammatical and pronunciation errors one can make in Russian. Or What You Hear Is What You Write. Basically that’s the same first step in making a dialect into a language, that was also taken in Malorossia/Galicia in 1800s, leading to Ukrainian.

Then, there is a more complex perspective. There is an official Belorussian language, which no one speaks. I only heard it once at the railway station. I was quite amusing – at first I thought they were announcing all the trains twice in Russian, and only after having listened closely, I noticed some subtle differences. A taxi driver, to my question of how widespread the official Belorussian was, told me that he hears it approximately once a year from some of the more radically-mooded youths. And that people don’t pay much attention to it. Maybe they should?

And then there is an even more troubling development. Take a look at the route of bus #1 that goes along the central avenue of Minsk:

Minsk Bus 1

At first glance, nothing untoward – names in Cyrillic for the locals and in Latin for the guests of the capital. Then you take a closer look. That’s not simply translations of the names. That’s essentially a Latinisation of them, along with Czech-looking umlaut characters of “č” and “š”. Let’s remember that attempts to Latinise Russian language were ongoing for several centuries. This may be yet another vector of attack on the Slavic roots.

Moreover, the names, which are basically lifted from Ukrainian – as I wrote above, I did not hear a single person call them that. Two examples: Independence Avenue in Ukrainian (and official Belorussian) is “Praspiekt Niezaliežnasci”, while in Russian it’s “Prospekt Nezavisimosti” (“independence” from what? History? Roots?); The Victory Square in Ukrainian/Belorussian is “Plošča Pieramohi”, while in Russian it is “Ploshad’ Pobedy”.

Man Is A Fool

Man is a fool,
When it’s hot, he wants it cool,
When it’s cool, he wants it hot,
He always wants what he has not

I already mentioned the sense of security and stability that I felt in Belorussia. What I found peculiar, is the kind of grumbling from the locals, aimed at this stability “oh, yeah, we have STABILITY, but you are luckier being there in Europe”.

Another point of discontent comes from a kind of inferiority complex, comparing themselves to how much better it is in Europe, while saying that Belorussia only tries to catch-up. One example: I asked in one of the taxis that I rode, if I can pay with Visa card. The reply was along the lines of “yes, but the connection is slow and patchy, we try to make it appear like in Europe at stop when the appearances are satisfied, without bothering about functionality”. Well, payment went through very well. And never mind that in Germany, when calling for a taxi, you need to say in advance that you want to pay with VISA, or you may get a car, which is not equipped with a terminal.

One manifestation of such expectation that everything is better on the other side, was a song/rap that I heard on one of the radio stations – something about dreaming of Jamaica, but only having “Minsk sea” to do diving in. “Minsk sea” being a somewhat bitter, self-derisive joke. Seemingly quite an innocent one, but setting a subconscious undercurrent of discontent in the youth.

Let us hope that such undercurrents would no be nurtured by the outside forces into the kind of tsunami that finally destroyed Ukraine in 2014.

LADA’S AFTERTHOUGHTS

I loved that last bit and the verse about a man being a fool. This is so applicable to Belarus, and some time ago it was also applicable to Russia. Not so much any more due to the events of the past several years, which caused Russians to awaken and grow up in a hurry.

Let me explain why some (and I emphasize that it’s only some) Belorussians don’t value what they have, but instead think the grass is greener somewhere else.

This was the attitude I recall from the Soviet days, albeit, as I said, Russians managed to grow out of it. This attitude, which I personally never had, was born of entitlement widespread during the later Soviet Union days. The life was so stable, so quiet and so secure that some thought their life wasn’t worth anything. Somewhere in the West they had excitement, adventure and high life. Soviet people, being too sheltered and isolated, didn’t understand that everything had a flip side. The flip side of high life is poverty and drudgery; adventure and excitement may mean danger to your life and the danger to the very existence of your country and culture. But man is a fool and the grass is always greener far and away for those who lack wisdom. Sometimes the grass really is greener elsewhere, but it always comes with strings attached and it’s always a trade-off, which, in the final analysis, you may not want.

In most other post-Soviet republics they already got it due to many tough lessons they had to learn in the past 25 odd years. The reason Belorussians still don’t know how to count their blessings is because they continue being sheltered by the ‘dictator Lukashenko’s’ regime.

In reality, just like Kazakhstan, Belarus is what I call a stewardship, not a dictatorship. The steward in charge takes care of his country as if it was his own domain and family, with great care and attention to detail, security and preservation of culture and industry. Like ‘big daddy’ he may be overbearing. He does everything to ensure a smooth sailing and a lack of shocks to his domain and people in his care. This results in some immature citizens feeling like rebellious teenagers (which is what such people really are, having never grown up).

They long to break out of the mold and experience something that the tough steward’s careful management doesn’t allow them to experience: turmoil, crisis and ups and downs, which they interpret as adventure, sparkle and excitement. Such attitude, when everything’s given to someone on a platter and therefore is not appreciated, is in some way akin to that of a spoiled rich brat.

This is a major downside of a sheltered existence and of any country functioning as a stewardship. A very similar situation developed in the late USSR, when the young generation took what they had for granted and didn’t value it; and this in part precipitated the USSR collapse. The shocks of the past 25 years took care of that in Russia as the Russian population quickly matured. It helped to have Putin and his team in power.

On the other hand, Ukrainians took their own country for granted so much and for so long that they had a bloody 2014 coup, resulting in total collapse. Now they don’t take anything for granted not knowing what tomorrow will bring, and many wish the old, good Yanukovich were back. Too late: the country is on its way to disintegration.

Belorussians haven’t had any major shocks and setbacks; therefore, they are somewhat behind in their maturing process. Some signals coming from Belarus are worrisome, but so far so good. Lukashenko is the right steward for the delicate job.

Pravda: Muhammad Ali on Russia, USSR, Leonid Brezhnev

RIP Muhammad Ali (1/17/1942 – 6/3/2016)

I thought this was an interesting thing to recall in connection with the topics we often discuss here on FT, as related to the great boxer and pacifist Muhammad Ali.

muhammad ali and leonid brezhnev

Muhammad Ali visiting the USSR – meeting with Leonid Brezhnev

Thanks to Akaida for the comment with this telling quote:

AKAIDA 

Muhammad Ali on his visit to USSR in 1978

“I’m very impressed by a meeting with Leonid Brezhnev. I find it hard to find the words… I am a simple American boxer, but I was honored to meet Mr. Brezhnev. I used to hear that the Russians are always threatening Americans, but I am convinced that this is not true. Brezhnev is a supporter of world peace”. Leonid Brezhnev, who during the WW2 fought against Nazis, gave Ali the book “The small land”. Ali called this gift “the best in his life”. “I’ll ask my friend Soviet Ambassador to the USA Dobrynin to translate this book for me”, Ali told reporters.

“It’s hard to believe, that such a peaceful country wants war. And Brezhnev, I never thought he was such a quiet and calm person. It is difficult to imagine that he can be the person who would start a war. I have not seen a hitchhiker on the road, and I have not seen a single beggar on the streets of Soviet Russia. I had never felt so safe: no risk of being robbed. I was told that there is no freedom of religion in the Soviet Union, but Muslims, Christians and Jews worship freely here. I think the relationship between our people is bad just because of false propaganda”.

“I was a little nervous when I landed in Russia. I thought I’d see the country in ruins, with a crowd of gloomy people who think like robots, and intelligence agents, who would follow my every step. Instead, I saw a country populated by a hundred nationalities, who are living together in harmony.”

ali in USSR

“I saw a country populated by a 100 nationalities, living together in harmony.” Muhammad Ali, USSR 1978

And this is a little bit about how I see the USSR and Brezhnev’s era, during which I grew up as a child. I never knew about the above quotes by Ali, yet you’ll surely find many synchronicities between his words and what I say in the video, which I published in 2015. Watch my video:

WHO REALLY RULED USSR? The Secret of Brezhnev’s Passport (LadaRayLive 17)

More to the point, these are some related posts:

CALIBRATIONS & PRAVDA

This seems like going beyond the above topic, but to me the issue of the truthpravda in Russian – is intrinsically connected with Muhammad Ali, the man who once uttered: we, humans, are tenants here on Earth, and we’ve got to pay our rent. The truth of this seemingly simple statement is very profound. It’s sad that so many humans do not understand this simple truth and still attempt to get something for nothing. In the end, there is always a price to pay – call it karma, the law of consequences, or luck – good or bad.

As many of my readers may know, my QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SCALE helps understand and interpret global events, people, underlying motivations, objects and subjects a lot deeper and with much more precision than just mere superficial analysis. If you haven’t yet, check out my QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SCALE on LadaRay.info (this, and lots of other FREE super-info is hiding under EARTH SHIFT SYSTEM on top navigation bar!). On the page, you’ll also find links to my Calibrations videos on Lada Ray YT channel. Click on those to get a complete picture of how it works. Lots of freebies there as well!

To help you orient yourselves better in all the above, let me take this opportunity to give you some quantum calibration examples.

Let’s recall something important about QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SCALE: the higher the calibration (unseen spiritual energy vibration), the more truth (the telling Russian word is PRAVDA) there is in a person, statement, action, etc. Consequently, the lower the calibration/energy vibration the more falsehood you will encounter in a person, action, statement, country, book, article, etc. It’s also very useful to calibrate separate chakras as each is responsible for certain segments and directions of our life here on Earth. One of the most important is the heart chakra as its vibration will resonate on the level corresponding with how ‘GOOD’ and ‘TRUE’ – or not – the object or subject really is.

Russian word for truth is ‘pravda.’ The etymology of this word is truly striking. Here is how it was formed (some vowels in the process of historic usage became eliminated for shortness, which is typical of Slavic languages:

pravda = po (in accordance with; in harmony with) – ra (light; male god) – vo (or va – female fertility goddess; Mother Earth) – da (yes; I affirm). In other words, the true ancient meaning of this word is:

PRAVDA = ‘I affirm that I live in harmony with divine light and Mother Earth’s wisdom’

(One day I’ll tell you what the English word ‘truth’ really means & I promise you’re gonna flip!)

Now let’s calibrate!

Legend: Calibration = C; Chi Level = Chi; Heart Chakra = HC

NOTE: human calibrations may change through life based on many factors. I’m using calibrations at the time the subjects’ pictures shown above were taken. 

Muhammad Ali: C: 280 (neutrality/friendliness); Chi: 585 (joy/high creation); HC: 210 (courage)

Leonid Brezhnev: C: 210 (courage); Chi: 490 (humanity/compassion); HC: 198 (yearning/striving – just under min. positive calibration of 200)

(In my article Goodbye Harper! Canada Celebrates New PM Trudeau’s Overwhelming Victory – With Analysis and Predictions, we discussed how hard it is for a politician to preserve a good heart chakra. Incidentally, Trudeau and his wife’s heart chakra calibrations have gone down since elections. See article for my original calibrations. The spike in calibration due to the huge win can be attributed to the excitement and hope associated with it. But then the reality drags the calibration down to settle it within the usual norm for a particular individual.)

Jimmy Carter (as depicted on video’s pic above): C 190 (pride – not good for world leader, but most Western ‘leaders’ calibrate at that level, or even much below); Chi: 150 (anger – oh my, embarrassingly low); HC: 90 (grief/depression!!!) And this is a US PRESIDENT – can you imagine how utterly wrong his decisions that impacted us all might have been! As I said, this is a very common story for US presidents and politicians, and generally for Western politicians.

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

I’ve been asked by some when I would resume my Calibrations Readings and Earth/Personal Shift Consultations. At this time I find my schedule full and, unfortunately, I can’t spare enough time for consultations. However, I may do online workshops instead, to teach you all how to calibrate and interpret your calibrations. This way more people will be able to do it themselves. If in the future I am able to resume my individual Consultations, I’ll announce them on LadaRay.info. In the future, I may also do an Earth Shift Report dedicated to global calibrations of importance.

At this time, you can order

Your Personal Feng Shui Empowerment & Success Report

which I put together personally, just for you.

The good news, I am presently working on new surprise EARTH SHIFT REPORTS. Hope to announce them soon.

“Тотальный диктант”: People Worldwide Take Simultaneous Voluntary Written Russian Exam

The outreach of the Russian language and interest in the Russian culture is growing worldwide. After the horrific discrimination to which Russian language was subjected in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldavia, and lately, in Ukraine, I am glad that Russian Ministry of Education and Science, previously often criticized for inactivity and inertia, is finally starting to make bold moves in the right direction.

I love this wonderful new initiative, whose popularity seems to be mushrooming nationally and internationally! Check it out!

Today, April 16, 2016, as dawn reached various cities and countries, scores took the voluntary Russian language exam. It began in the Far East and as the sun rose, it spread all over the globe. Regardless of age, education, occupation and nationality, people challenged themselves to test their grammar and ability to write in Russian. They took it on Russian subs and icebreakers, on planes and while on an exotic nature tour, in Moscow, Estonia, Japan and China…

This is a new Russian tradition, born a few years ago in Novosibirsk, Western Siberia. It’s called : ‘Totalny Diktant’ – Russian: “Тотальный диктант,” and its popularity is taking over the world. Language diktant in itself is a very old, tried and true Russian educational tradition, which stood the test of time for centuries, and perhaps, millennia.

Diktant is translated to English as: ‘Written exam during which a teacher, or designated reader, reads aloud the secretly pre-selected text to a class (sealed envelope containing text is opened in front of students). Each student listens and writes it down verbatim, while attempting not to make any mistakes. The exam is fully handwritten. What is tested: general erudition and literary language comprehension, attention span, fast reaction (you have to keep up with the speed of dictation), grammar, spelling and punctuation.’ 

Phew… out of breath just trying to describe in English the meaning of the little Russian word диктант.  

‘Totalny Diktant’ is organized by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science. Organizers say that all top ‘students’ – everyone who makes only one mistake or zero mistakes – will receive prizes.

Totalny Diktant, in other words, ‘the total diktant,’ is so named because it is an all-encompassing simultaneous event, whose geography and outreach keep growing.

Here is a brief video with some of the exotic geography and broad outreach of today’s event – time stamps and my explanations/translation underneath the video.

At 0:25: totalny diktant taken by seamen serving on nuclear icebreaker Yamal, Murmansk; 1:00 sailors of the training tall ship Pallada, en route to Japan.

At 1:15: Listvianka village, Lake Baikal, Siberia – local adults and tourists writing their diktant at school desks. 1:20: Kungur, Permsky Krai – extreme Total Diktant: tourists write it in the wilderness of the ancient ice caves, with candles and lots of warm clothes. 1:30 Krasnoyarsk, Siberia – cozy setting of the local bar kinda clashes with this year’s diktant topic: ancient civilizations. 😉

1:40 Novosibirsk University – the birthplace of Totalny Diktant. This year’s topic and text were developed here.

At 1:50 Moscow – in this college diktant is read by Russian Minister of Education and Science, Dmitry Livanov.

Total Diktant this year is taken on all continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, S. and N. America, Australia and Antarctica. Total number of diktant venues: 2185, almost twice as many as in 2015.

At 2:18 Tallinn, Estonia – diktant gathered a record 2000 people, who packed the entire national hockey arena.

2:30 Diktant in the sky: flight Novosibirsk – Moscow.

2:36 – Totalny Diktant in China: “Russian language challenges for the Chinese: hard to tell ‘b’ from ‘p’, as well as ‘a’ and ‘o’ in those cases when they are with, or without, accent.”

2:52 Largest number of participants were in Moscow and St. Petersburg. In the two capitals the diktant text was read by famous actors, politicians, scientists and artists.

The total diktant was followed by live TV/internet guidance, with detailed tips and analysis of common mistakes.

3:30 One of the many unusual venues: Donskoy Men’s Monastery, the text read personally by Father Superior.

3:45 Pushkin, St. Petersburg venue – text read by Sergei Naryshkin, Speaker of the Russian Duma.

4:00 Japanese and Chinese students in Vladivostock, the Far East.

4/17/16 Received a question where to find info on Totalny Diktantand and who can participate.

This is a voluntary global initiative, no restrictions on age or nationality. You can do it in any country, as long as you can write in Russian. As I said, this year the exam was taken on every continent. For those interested in participating or organizing it in your city next year, here is the site. The site also includes Russian language tutorials, and as far as I understand, you can also take the diktant online. Check it out and good luck!

How to reformat reople’s consciousness and keep them as obedient slaves

I want to introduce you to a new translation by our friend Stanislav (Nemo). Galician Intellectuals Wishing to Deprive Ukrainian of the Cyrillic Alphabet. I also want to direct you to Stanislav’s other recent piece: How Malorossia Was Turned into the Patch-quilt of Discord that is “Ukraine”. In it, with permission he uses an excerpt and maps from my Earth Shift Report 2. Ukraine: Truth, Lies & Future Hope, which provide a visually good idea about Ukraine’s history, its present situation, and future options.

Stanislav asked for my thoughts on what’s going on with reformatting of Ukraine’s alphabet. My thoughts are of a global character, but they reference what’s happening now in Ukraine, and what happened a very long time in Russian/Slavic World. Here is what comes to mind when I read about Latinization of Ukrainian language.

FORBIDDEN HISTORY AND LINGUISTICS

How to rule the sheeple:

REFORMATTING PEOPLE’S CONSCIOUSNESS

Certain forces in Ukraine are trying to abolish the traditional Russian/Cyrillic alphabet and Latinize Ukrainian alphabet. Those who read my ESR2: UKRAINE – TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE, know certain facts from Ukraine’s history, including the fact that Ukrainian is really a southern dialect of the Russian language (aka, Malorussian dialect), which was given the status of a separate language by Lenin and the Bolsheviks in 1922, with the formation of the USSR. It was a very strong and distinctive dialect, spoken by millions, with a lot of its own cultural flavor and charm, but it was a dialect, nevertheless. It didn’t occur to those who lived in Malorossia in 19th century that they were NOT Russians. Some of them, those who lived in western and certain central parts, called themselves Rusins.

From ESR2 you’ll also recall that there was no known term ‘Ukraine’ per se before 19th century, and that this term was created by Poles and Austria-Hungary, in order to create a rift in Malorossia population’s consciousness. The aggressive and subversive attempts to create a separate mentality and separate language in the south of the Russian World went on for centuries. It was the battle for minds and territories. The project Malorossia (today: Ukraine) as anti-Russia wasn’t invented in 2014. In 18th and 19th centuries Austria-Hungary and Poland did everything to make it happen. Before that, there were other forces, which attempted various tactics to achieve the same. Read more in the ESR2 report.

The same is true for Belorussian language. Belorussian language miraculously appeared in 1922. Before Lenin delineated Belarus as separate republic, there was Minsk Gubernia (‘governorship’ headed by a governor, akin to an oblast in today’s terms) as part of the Russian Empire. There NEVER was a state called Belarus. There was, of course, a distinct western Russian dialect spoken by quite a few people. The thing is that some people on the Russian side of the Belorussian border still speak that western Russian dialect. This only proves the artificiality of the borders separating the same people.

Of course, Belarus and Russia are in a good relationship, compared to Ukraine. But even in Belarus there are continuous attempts to Latinize the alphabet, thus distancing Belarus even further from Russia. Meanwhile, while Belorussian language exists, very few use it every day. Belorussians overwhelmingly speak Russian in life, business and on TV. Yet, the public sings and documents are in Belorussian and kids at school are taught a suspicious version of separate from Russia history. How far will it be allowed to go? I suspect not too far, compared to Ukraine.

This discussion has jogged something in my mind, which goes into one of my favorite topics: Forbidden History and Linguistics.

WHAT IS THE RUSSIAN CODE?

The ancient western Rus dialect (now spoken in modified form in Belarus and some western parts of Russia proper), has been proven to be very close to the Etruscan language. As many of you may know, millennia ago there was a mysterious and very advanced civilization that lived in today’s Italy, which created amazing works of art, but for some strange reason this advanced civilization failed to leave behind much written evidence of its presence and achievements. When finally some Etruscan language rocks were ‘discovered’ in Italy, they were declared ‘illegible.’ Ancient Romans had a Latin saying, translating as: ‘Etruscan is not legible.’ Western linguists and archeologists repeated this saying like a mantra. They scratched their heads and shrugged shoulders: ‘not legible, what are you going to do. Ah, well… a mystery, I tell’ya.’

Of course it wasn’t legible, as these Western ‘scientists’ tried to use Latin and Italian as foundation for their translation… Until Russian professor Valery Chudinov read Etruscan in western Russian dialect, using one of the 4 ancient Rus/Arian (later, Slavic) writing systems. The whole new world of the ancient Et-RUS-cans opened up as a result. This alphabet/ writing system, called the ‘mirror alphabet’ was very different from the more widely used Runitsa and Bukvitsa alphabets/ writing systems.

key to rus bukvitsa

This image shows how sacred geometry is the key to understanding Slavic Bukvitsa

This is a very big topic, which deserves several books, not a mere article. However, it has to be mentioned that the ancient Runitsa and Bukvitsa writing systems far preceded any Western writing system. How old are they? Many millennia, at least. Per Russian linguist Chudinov, about 1000+ years ago, at the point of the switch from Vedism to Christianity, Runitsa was chopped off and shortened, having been deprived of its wisdom and secret knowledge meant to be passed on to future generations. What was left of the original Bukvitsa is known as Cyrillics, with 33 letters. It is attributed to two Bulgarian/Macedonian Orthodox monks, Kirill and Mefodiy.

In its original complete version, Bukvitsa had over 150 letters, if memory serves me. Each letter signified a specific word and a specific concept. The whole alphabet was a symphonic poem that could be read as a Vedic prayer to the Universe.

A similar fate was endured by the poor Runitsa (notice: Ru-nitsa – Rus). All that’s left are a few of the so-called Nordic Runes. Read Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs?

No, of course the real ancient Bukvitsa and Runitsa didn’t disappear. True wisdom is diligently preserved by some linguists, historians, enthusiasts and other keepers of ancient wisdom. It’s all hidden in archives, books, ancient ruins and the Mother Earth itself, waiting for its time, the time when people shake off the matrix of lies and decide to find out the truth of their roots – their true history.

I often call Bukvitsa and Runitsa – and the hidden message they encode for future generations – THE RUSSIAN CODE. These two ancient alphabets were fifth-dimensional creations (as opposed to three-dimensional alphabets we use now), and they work on the level of cooperation and union with creation, nature and other humans.

Read my new article on how third dimension and fifth dimension work: GUIDE TO MULTI-DIMENSIONAL UNIVERSE.

Today’s alphabets were once simplified for ‘the sheeple.’

I can explain a sudden disappearance of the Etruscans millennia ago very simply. Their consciousness was reformatted to believe they were someone else: Romans, and later, Italians. A rift in consciousness is necessary for rulers to control the people. If people forget their true history, their true roots and language, a consciousness vacuum will be created to be filled with whatever someone with an agenda desires.

etruscan writing

Etruscan mirror writing, read using western Rus dialect

Predictably, Chudinov’s, and other Slavic researchers,’ discoveries were shunned and swept under the rug in the West. The reason for this is the same: reformatting people’s consciousness and keeping them in the dark regarding their real origins and roots. This ensures they continue being obedient little slaves.

Latinizing Ukrainian denotes one of the trends, presently pushed hard by the West, as well as certain forces within these countries that want to be quickly bound to the West while it’s possible – before the reversal happens. I can tell you that the reversal will begin happening within a few years.

Before it begins, a strong pressure to Latinize the traditional for the past 1000 plus years Cyrillic alphabet in various countries of the Russian/Slavic world has to be intensified. This is done with a very specific purpose: further division of the Russian/Slavic world, leading to the weakening of Russia and creation of rabidly Russophobic anti-Russias in the post-Soviet or peripheral Russian World countries.

The experiment so far worked successfully in Moldova, where Romanian Latinized alphabet is now used instead of traditional Cyrillic. The Balkans countries (Bulgaria and still holding out parts of former Yugoslavia) are under huge pressure to Latinize. Muslim and Catholic parts of former Yugoslavia have switched to Latinized alphabet in 1990s, during, or after, the Yugoslavian civil war.

A different alphabet and language, like a different religion, has always served as a means to divide and conquer for those puppeteers and useful vassals who wanted to rule lesser humans with impunity. Such division also justifies aggression against close neighbors or parts of the same people.

I can tell you that this is how all of Europe, and before that, all of Eurasia, became divided on small tribes and states. Once upon a time, all of Eurasia, and beyond, spoke the same language and had the same set of beliefs. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe… But certain linguistic, historic and anthropological facts are undeniable. Facts go well beyond these traditional sciences, of course, and extend to math, astronomy and DNA.

You can find some of my articles on this topic under CATEGORIES:

I’ll continue talking about proofs in upcoming articles this year and beyond. Stay tuned!

I should add that what both Stanislav and I discuss in our pieces relative to Ukraine’s history is common knowledge where I come from. In fact, it always has been such undeniable axiom that it never occurred to me or others that such blatant reformatting could take place so quickly and easily. What happened in Ukraine, when the switch was just turned on at the right moment, proves how delicate our world is and how easily swayed the fragile human psyche can be.

Looking back at what happened in 2014 in Kiev, these are the lessons and important conclusions we must take away:

1. When intelligent and educated people leave, the vacuum created will usher in the pretenders, greedy crooks and liars, who will sell their own mother and children for the right amount or 15 minutes of fame.

2. There are always those who want what belongs to someone else. Normal people don’t think that way and they can’t imagine that anyone would do that. But psychopaths and sociopaths in power in the West DO think that way and they DO want what belongs to others.

3. The West wants to destroy Russia and eradicate the memory of the true history and true roots of the Earth’s people at any cost. These two desires are much more interconnected than anyone realizes. How are they interconnected? Like this: it all boils down to Russia.

4. Russia is the Great Balancer, who is destined to prevent the unencumbered takeover of the world by what we may refer to as Anglo-American elites, or NWO.

5. My diagnosis for the Western aggression is this: the West represents the yang side of the yin-yang balance of our planet; at this time, we have a severe yin-yang imbalance, dominated by the overly aggressive, imbalanced Western yang side of the world, which leads to excessive aggression, greed, preponderance of physical and material over the suppressed spiritual. We have wars, distortions of history and relentless takeover of the rest of the world by one single culture and one way of thinking.

6. It is Russia alone that stands in the way of such takeover, China and a few other countries being in this category, as well. But only to a degree, mostly as followers. Countries like China take the wait and see approach and try to let Russia take the brunt of the attack and do most, if not all, of the work. Unfortunately, this happened many times before in our history. What no one seems to get is one simple truth: if Russia is weakened or gone, no one else will resist and everyone will be forced to conform.

7. At the same time, Russian language and history are the most important depositories of the secret (forbidden truth and history) of our real origins and real roots. The genetic memory of the truth is one of the strongest in the Russian psyche. Russia will be called to re-unite different tribes on our planet and to help people remember. This fascinating story is a long and separate subject. I intend to write a an Earth Shift Report on that later in the year.

8. Example of how the truth was distorted: The English word ‘roots’ is in fact the Russian word ‘rod.’ The ancient Rus word ROD (English doesn’t have the right sound in it, but approximately it is pronounced as ‘raud’ – except Rus ‘o’ is very rounded, single, solid sound; the true ‘o’ sound, as intended by nature. It’s similar to how the Buddhist “Om” is pronounced, but shorter.) Rod means: tribe, origin, ancestry, genealogical tree and/or one’s roots. The word Rodina (Motherland) comes from ‘rod.’ ‘Roditeli’ means ‘parents,’ ‘rodit’ means ‘to give birth.’ In Russian, Russia sounds like: Rossia (notice the same root?). The true origin of this word was concealed and forgotten, as the rest of human history. But proof is hidden in plain sight in our languages – if only we paid attention and knew where to look!

Ukrainian Latinization – hurry, before it’s too late to create anti-Russia! 

Excerpts from Galician Intellectuals Wishing to Deprive Ukrainian of the Cyrillic Alphabet:

“Throughout centuries, the main argument for replacement of the Cyrillic alphabet in the Slavic lands was that it would bring those lands closer to the Western European culture. How? Will writing Russian using Latin alphabet make an Englishman understand Russian or vice versa? No. Will it make easier for the Russians to learn English? Partially, but not significantly. Will it tear away the new generation of Russians from their historic roots by not allowing them to read their own literature. Yes. Here you have it.

For an example, look at Croatian and Serbian. These are one and the same language. Croatian is written in Latin, Serbian in Cyrillic. What did it achieve? A split of the one people into two and easier implementation of divide and conquer strategy.

Secondly, Cyrillic alphabet maps exactly the soundscape of the Slavic languages – one letter, one sound. Slavic languages, which got Latinised at various points in time – like Polish, Czech or Slovak – had to resort to dual, triple, and quadruple letters to depict a single sound. Example: letter “Ш” can be Latinised, transliterated, in various ways: “SH” or, as in Polish “SZ”. In some cases, additional “latin-like” letters need to be introduced. See for example Polish “ś”, “ł”, “ę”, “ą”; or the Czech “Ú”, “Ů”, “Č”. So Polish, with its essentially close-to-Russian pronunciation, ended up having more letters, than Cyrillic Russian. Interestingly, the same sound comprising the word “Czech”, would have been written in Cyrillic using only 3 letters: “Чех”.”

“The main argument coming from local intellectuals in favour of switching to the Latin alphabet is a question of civilizations. Ukrainian people, or, more precisely, the western Ukrainians – are from “time immemorial the people of Europe. In this they differ from the Russians and the Malorossians (Trans-dnepr Ukrainians – Ed.), who in essence are the Russian people“. And Latin alphabet will be best suited to emphasize the affiliation of Western Ukrainians to the family of Central European nations.

Sooner or later, such a transition from the Cyrillic to the Latin alphabet will happen, postulates Lvov intelligentsia. The idea of ”Latinization of Ukrainian language” appeared already in the 90s among the Galician intellectuals who actively advocated the independence of Galicia. By 2000, the norms for Latin spelling of the Ukrainian language had already been developed. Among the developers was the most famous artist and publicist Vlodko (Vladimir – Ed.) Kostirko. In the early 2000s, he was already publishing his articles on the Ukrainian language, written in Latin, in the editions of the Lvov cultural almanac “Ї”.

Kostirko have long switched to the Latin alphabet in his Ukrainian-language texts. In this way he hopes to emphasize the intransigence and even hostility between the two cultures – the “European” Western Ukrainian and “Russian” Central Ukrainian.

He even once created a painting “Uniate killing a Cossack”. In this painting a Polish “bewinged” hussar is spearing the head of a Zaporozhje Cossack (Translator note: names “Cossack”, “Khazar” and “Hussar” are of the same origin. See Lada Ray’s ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE? for more info). This is a reminder that there was a war in the 17th century between the Greek Catholic Galicians and the Orthodox Trans-Dneprians, the descendants of the Cossacks.”

“Let me remind that in March, a temporary special commission for preparation of a draft law “On the development and use of languages in Ukraine” considered a gradual phasing out of the use of the Cyrillic alphabet on the territory of Ukraine.

Already in 2007 I wrote about the attempts during President Yushchenko’s rule to push through the replacement of the Cyrillic alphabet with “abetsadlo” (translator note: From the Polish word for “alphabet”). Back then those attempts were doomed.”

Why Russians celebrate the New Year, and not Christmas, with New Year’s Tree? The Origin of ‘Calendar’ and Christmas/New Year’s Forbidden History

ny-moscow-red-square

Why Russians celebrate the New Year, and not Christmas, with New Year’s Tree? 

That’s because the tradition of celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next with a decorated and lit up green tree, symbolizing the new growth and new prosperity is a pagan tradition that by far predates Christianity. Much later it was adopted by Christianity to coincide with the designated birth of Christ – Dec. 25. In fact the Western Christmas continues symbolizing death and rebirth. The year’s shortest day is around this time of year, during Dec 22 Winter Equinox. After this the day again begins getting longer, thus denoting rebirth of the new year and new hope. The tradition itself predates any cultures and any religion known today – it was born in the days when humans were still united.

The proper Russian Orthodox Christian Christmas (Rus: Рождество, OR full name: Рождество Христово Rozhdestvo Khristovo) is celebrated one week after New Year’s, on January 6-7. The tradition for that holiday is to eat ‘sviata vecherya, ‘ aka, the Sacred Supper (Holy Supper) thus repeating with your friends and family the last supper of Jesus. This is often hosted by local churches, or is eaten at home. After that, the Vsenoshchnaya (Rus: Bсенощная) – All Night Vigil – in the church lasts through the night. Krestniy Hod is usually at midnight, during which everyone together walks around the church, the block, and/or an area of a city with candles, icons and church banners, while singing Russian church songs. This tradition goes very deep in history, back to the ancient Vedic/pagan times as well. It is a combined blessing and space clearing of one’s land, ushering in the light and positive affirmation for all present.

Krestniy Hod is also performed for the Russian Easter (Rus: Paskha). I’ve gone to a couple of these in Manhattan in the ’90s, and it was pretty cool. Police had stopped the traffic in the part of the upper East Side around the 92-93 Street, to allow the Krestniy Hod through.

And of course, the traditional Russian ice water bathing – Rus: Rozhdestvenskie Kupania! Should never forget about that! Extremely cold, but you really do feel like you’ve been reborn – if you can stomach it! I have a pic of the Russian ice water bathing in my classic post: How Russians Celebrate New Year: Happy NY 2014 and Happy 100,000 Visits to Lada Ray Blog!

There is also what is called ‘the Old New Year,’ still celebrated by many two weeks after traditional New Year, on Jan. 14-15 of the contemporary calendar. Why is that? What is now called the ‘Old New Year’ was the actual New Year’s in pre-1917 Revolution Russia.

ny-red-square

The Origin of ‘Calendar’

& Christmas/New Year’s FORBIDDEN HISTORY!

What is now called the ‘Old New Year’ was the actual New Year’s date according to the old Julian Calendar, where leap year wasn’t taken into account. Lenin changed that in 1918 to coincide with the new Western calendar (Gregorian Calendar). Initially, the original Russian Vedic Calendar was thrown out and substituted for the Western one by Peter the Great, counting years from the birth of Christ.

However, in doing so, much of history was distorted and silenced. Now, the truth is being re-discovered. In reality, the true ancient Russian calendar (actually, the calendar shared by all Slavic cultures) was over 7,500 years old. More precisely, today would be the Year 7523, and the year 2016 would be the Year 7524 ‘Ot Sotvorenia Mira’ (Eng translation: from “the Creation of Peace” – which is most of the time incorrectly interpreted to mean from “the Creation of the World, ‘world’ and ‘peace’ sounding very similar).

In reality, that still wasn’t the beginning of the Rus/Slavic culture. Rather, in that calendar Year One was counted from the Peace Treaty with the Dragon. Some interpret it to mean China, but I have a different, much more esoteric theory – one day I’ll share it.

Next, to fit into the new shortened calendar, the history of Russia and other Slavic lands was deliberately shortened and falsified to make it seem less significant and subordinate to other cultures. In reality, the truth appears to be this: over 1000 years ago at least all of Europe, and probably a large part of all of Eurasia, lived by the same old Slavic calendar. The exact date is hard to pinpoint, but roughly we can assume that the year 1000 was some sort of major threshold, another one being 2000 years ago.

The reason the new Western calendar became prevalent has to do with the previous tectonic Earth Shift of this human civilization towards the West: individual, yang, aggressive, assertive, outgoing. In more mundane terms it manifested in the power struggle between various individualistic national identities and separatist overlords’ interests. In religious terms, it was the power struggle between the Vedic/pagan system and the new organized religions. At the same time it was the fight between younger Catholic Vatican and older Orthodox Byzantium, as well as between Christianity and Islam, in which the Vatican and Catholicism won. No surprise there: the Vatican represented the West, which was beginning to gain dominance at the time.

The word Calendar itself is an ancient Rus/Slavic word, not Latin, as many think.

It comes from: Colo-dar – orig. spelling: Kolo-dar. Kolo means ‘circle’ and ‘sun.’ Dar is ancient Rus (used as is to this day) for ‘gift’ and ‘blessing.’ Therefore: Kolo-dar (colo-dar) means the gift of the sun. Alternatively: gift of the circle of the year. This in turn means: the gift, or blessing, of the ever revolving circle of seasons and karma.

How Latin language came to be and where it really came from is a whole different and fascinating mystery altogether. But that’s another story, which I might tell one day.

For now, let’s see how Kolo-dar became Calen-dar. Anyone who studied Latin knows that in it ‘K’ becomes ‘C.’ For example: Kelt becomes Celt. So, the original Kolo became Colo and later was distorted to Cale. Calen = of Cale – this added ‘n’ is also of Rus origin, signifying ‘part of’ or ‘from.’ For example: contemporary Russian word: Kalendar-n-y = part of the calendar, from the calendar.

The contemporary word that shows the evolution of kolo-colo-cale is: ‘calle’ – the word for ‘street’ in Spanish (very similarly sounding words exist in other Romanic languages). A street in the old days, before pavement, was made by constant movement of carriages along a dirt path. Carriages used wheels, or kolo = colo, modified in time to cale. It later became calle. 

P.S. In contemporary Russian the word for ‘wheel’ is ‘koleso’: kole-so. The word for a track made by a wheel of a car or carriage is: ‘kole-ya.’ Both, because of the traditional Russian ‘a’ transference in cases of written ‘o,’ are pronounced as ‘kaleso’ and ‘kaleya.’ This is in direct correspondence with cale-calle.

Incidentally, the word ‘alley’ once upon a time made a full turnaround and re-entered – was re-borrowed by – a number of languages from French. In Russian it sounds like ‘alleya.’ But you will easily recognize it as originally descending from the same primary word: kolo – koleya (a track made by a wheel).

This is just a small sampler – several books could be easily filled with such examples. More to come!

Pope Francis and World Religions – Karma and Consciousness

‘The above comments just show how confused people are about the catholic religion in general. The celebration of mass is a satanic ritual that celebrates the eating of the body of Christ and drinking of his blood!! The current pope is a Jesuit and they cannot be trusted fullstop. The Roman Catholic Church is full of criminals that raped and abused children without any legal charge for centuries…clergy are literally protected by the state in many countries. Any child who went to a catholic school can attest to the cruelty of the nuns and brothers that taught them a pack of lies and rubbish. The incredible catholic institutions that abused vulnerable children everywhere and the truth of which is only now emerging and again has been kept secret by governments. The whole institution is evil and disempowering of the individual. Now is the time to take back our power and undo the mind control imposed on little children that has stayed with most people for life unless they wake up and start using their brains. I escaped.. I woke up! Religion is the cause of wars literally and it is about time all just understood that we are each parts of the whole and that every little action affects the whole of humanity. Our illusion is a holographic matrix…one of many matrices. President Putin has shown great intelligence in the way he has handled many serious matters recently and I doubt that he will be fooled by a Jesuit pope as he will realise that much of what has persecuted Russia in the past was caused by the Catholic Chuch perpetrated by its Jesuits.’

Lada says:

One of my tweeps tweeted me this pic:

Putin and Pope cartoon

This reminds me of the opening scene of my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER. In it, the Pope drops to his knees in front of a simple Franciscan monk, who happens to be one of the nine Earth Keepers, asking for a blessing as the end of the world nears. Such act by the Holy See completely baffles a Swiss guard, who listens in on the conversation, missing its point entirely. Read this excerpt here, or go to EXCERPTS on top bar for full list.

The important thing to remember is that everything in our 3D world, as in any dimension, is subject to a PERSPECTIVE. The 9D, 10D and 11D beings still have their own perspective. This means that, depending on your point of view, you will see the same events differently from someone who has a different perspective.

Let’s just say, much of the language of global diplomacy and international relations isn’t on the surface. The meeting of the Pope and Putin of which I wrote in Putin’s New Ally: Pope Francis was one such meeting, when many could observe, yet miss its true meaning. Let’s talk about it.

Undeniably, the history of the Catholic Church has many dark pages, and there are plenty of dark pages in the Vatican’s present day reality, as well. When it comes to topics I often address, such as aggressive power grab, looting, rewriting/falsifying history, I could tell you lots of stories. The abuse of children is another such story.

That said, there are many people in the world who genuinely, from their heart, find solace and peace in believing. I think we should respect the feelings of those Catholics whose hearts and minds are pure. Christian mysticism, along with Hebrew (Kabbala) and Muslim (Sufi) mysticism, are manifestations of true religious wisdom, which rises above mundane and above the confines of any religious dogma.

I personally enjoy such wisdom, as well as religious art, architecture and music. All these are high manifestations of religions. Mother Theresa was also a devout Catholic. As anything our 3D human world produces, religions represent the entire spectrum of manifestations: from the highest in spirit to the lowest of the low.

It is a different story that those HUMANS who hold POWER in any religion may misuse this power to suppress truth and successfully cover up their evil HUMAN deeds. The fact that all the abuses of the Catholic Church are coming out now speaks volumes. We are entering the era of truth, discovery and transparency, when old power structures created by MAN for the benefit of the few will fall away, and new, more equitable global structures will be created. This will force – it already does – everyone, including Catholic Church, to abide by new rules and to respect a small person.

~~~~~~

It probably helps that I grew up in the Soviet society and in a non-religious family. This provided me with the world of freedom and safeguarded me from any childhood brainwashing. We were free to think, instead of following a dogma, be it religious or any other. The depiction of the Soviet society is completely and maliciously distorted in the West. One of the many legacies of the Soviet Union was, and still is, the most educated and the most thinking people on the planet.

As such, when we all grew up, we could freely choose WHAT to believe in and what, or who, to follow – or not. My sister became a devout Russian Orthodox. But because no one ever made her go to church on Sunday, her devotion comes from her heart.

My cosmic soul is, shall we say, too cosmic for any Earth-bound religion. But I studied shamanism with a lot of pleasure, as it rings true to me (my book THE EARTH SHIFTER is in big part about a Siberian shaman). I also studied wicca and Earth-based religions. I delve deeply into Oriental traditions, and having become Feng Shui Master in Asia, I enjoy Tibetan Buddhism and its beautiful art, spiritual music, rituals and symbolism. My hubby, who has grown up in a non-religious Chinese household, has most affinity with Zen living. Presently, I am studying the ancient Russian Vedic wisdom, which includes the cosmic truth of our origins, forbidden history and linguistics, runas, and much more. Little by little, I will share this knowledge with all in various articles and Earth Shift Reports.

As always, God is within us, and it doesn’t matter if you go to church or not, or if you read the Bible or not. What matters is this: in the final analysis, it’s between you and God.’ Said another way: ‘it’s all between you and your higher self, or your higher conscience.’ In the final analysis we are all ONE.

The clarity of mind that lets one see the world in true light is a must in order to discern and weigh all sides of the issue. I am endlessly grateful to the USSR, the country where I grew up, for many things. One such thing is allowing me as a child to develop freely and grow unencumbered by religious dogma. Perhaps, there was a small amount of Communist brainwashing, as it were. However, it was very minor and incomparable to the damage a Sunday school may have inflicted on fragile children’s psyche. It didn’t affect me; moreover many of my contemporaries think of the old USSR with great nostalgia.

At the same time, I met a lot of people who were traumatized for life by their Sunday school experience, turning rebellious or turning to alternative religions as a desperate knee jerk reaction. I really do feel for them in my heart.

With this background, let me proceed to answering the questions in the comment above.

Much of what Noeline says are true facts and I do agree with her. No, Putin isn’t fooled by anything or anyone.

What has to be remembered is that history of all world’s organized religions is the history of power struggle. It was often a struggle between religions (and various sects inside each religion) for global religious, economic, and geopolitical dominance.

But it was also a very brutal struggle between newer organized religions and old pagan/Earth-based and Vedic lifestyle belief systems. The latter especially applies to Christianity, including both old branches: Catholicism and Orthodoxy. Catholicism brutally eliminated competition, witches and Celtic/Druid priests and priestesses, and Orthodoxy – their competition, Vedic followers. Untold damage was done to the Russian historic records as history was re-written over and over in order to delete mentions of real events and people, substituting them with lies. Same – and worse – was happening all over Europe, which fell under the dominion of Catholicism.

Throughout centuries, this power struggle was consistently violent and blood-thirsty. This applies to Catholicism more than to others, with Judaism and Islam very violent in their own way. If we look deep into history, we’ll find that Greek/Russian Orthodoxy was just as bad; however lately, Orthodoxy became a much more positive and non-destructive force.

If weighed on merit, arguably, Greek/Russian Orthodoxy, which is the older and original branch of Christianity, wasn’t as violent as Catholicism. For instance, there were no witch trials and burnings, although Vedic wise men and women did get prosecuted/eliminated, their ancient wisdom substituted for new religious dogma. Moreover, Vedic traditions and rituals still had a better recognition and co-existed more peacefully with Orthodoxy, while wicca (in part, a Western branch of Vedic wisdom) till recently was entirely denied in the West. Russian Orthodoxy isn’t so much into global dominance either, preferring peaceful cooperative and consultive methods of resolving problems. Overall today, Orthodoxy plays mostly a positive role in society.

Notice that I didn’t include Hinduism and Buddhism in the above list – two other major world religions. Out of these, Hinduism was somewhat repressive to its own people, but wasn’t aggressive or violent outwardly. Compared to the above list, Hinduism is a ‘sweetie.’

~~~~~~

A glimpse of forbidden history:

Incidentally, here is a little glimpse of the ancient Vedic wisdom. Many know that there is a Hindi goddess Sarasvati. But did you know that the word ‘sweetie’ and ‘Sarasvati’ have the same root? It’s the Russian word (I also call it Slavyano-Arian): ‘svet.’ Svet means light. The English word ‘sweet’ and Hindi ‘Sara-svat-i’ both originate from svet = light.

Moreover, the Russian word ‘sviatoy’ and its Spanish counterpart ‘santo’, Italian ‘santi’ and English ‘saint’ all come from svet = ‘light.’

By the way, the dreaded nazi word ‘swastika’ comes from the same word ‘svet.’ As some may know, Hitler stole the symbol and word from the Vedic tradition, reversing the energetic plus and minus polarities of its meaning. Originally, ‘svastika,’ aka, ‘kolovrat’ in Russian, signified Sun, and in some other representations, our galaxy.

Speaking of svet. While svet signifies ‘light,’ another meaning is ‘world.’ As in ‘the world full of light,’ that is. There is a well-known Russian expression: beliy svet, which translates literally as the ‘white world,’ although it really means ‘white light,’ aka, the good, enlightened world; world full of love and light.

Much more Vedic linguistic wisdom coming to you in the future Earth Shift Reports. Stay tuned!

~~~~~~

Of all world religions, Buddhism is by far the most peaceful, spiritual and positive. In fact, it’s the only organized world religion that NEVER had the acquisition of worldly power as its overriding goal.

As I said, this however was for centuries THE primary goal of the following religions (to various degrees and using different methods): Catholicism, Judaism and Islam.

At the same time, all organized religions also produced true mystics and people of svet = light. This should never be forgotten either! Therefore, it all ultimately boils down to people who are a part of that religion at any given time. It always goes back to individual humans, how they use their power and what their life’s mission is.

Today, religious leaders can often play a positive role, if they choose to. Or at least first do no harm, according to the medical Hippocratic oath.

The reason we cannot just blankly deny any organized religion, whether it’s Catholicism, Islam, Judaism, Orthodoxy, or any other, is very simple: there are billions of people on the planet who do believe and follow these religions. Simply saying to one billion Catholics: ‘well, you are following a satanic cult – get over it…’ I am afraid this won’t work. It’s much better to get in touch with the leader of that religion and tell him, ‘look we can work together on making the Earthly realm we live in, a better place.’ If this leader has conscience, then he can be a force for good to be reckoned with.

I think this is potentially possible with this Pope, who is Argentinian and a friend of the Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who in turn is Putin’s personal friend. I can guarantee that Kirchner had a hand in Putin and the Pope hitting it off. Now, such dialogue was entirely impossible with the previous Pope (sorry, forget his name), who was there for 25 years and who was Polish. By a strange coincidence (not), he also happened to be rabidly russophobic.

As we see, Holy See or not, Vatican or not, it still boils down to individual people and their personal PERSPECTIVE.

Can the Vatican be reformed? Can it change to play a positive and cooperative role in society? Can the Vatican become a force for good? Can Putin change the Catholic world? And should this Pope be given a chance?

Yes, absolutely. That is, if you, me and everyone else on this planet, want to continue this Earthly 3D human experiment. I, for one, am here to help guide humanity towards the continuation of this experiment – with a much better outcome than what we may be facing today.

This means finding common ground with those who are willing to work together to create a more positive, cooperative world.

Religions, like humans, do grow up. Recall yourself when you were a toddler. Were you capricious, causing trouble for your parents? Unless you were angel incarnate like me and never caused any trouble. 😉 Then you were a 5-10-year-old and you wanted to be liked by your parents and obediently did everything they told you to do. Then you became a rebellious teen and caused much more trouble, denying everything your parents taught you. Then, you gradually grew up, becoming more responsible as you aged, acquiring more wisdom (hopefully).

Is our world a holographic matrix? Yes, it is. But as long as we have incarnated in this 3D reality, it is fully real for us. It’s like saying: I won’t study for this test – it’s not real, it’s only on paper. I am sorry, but for as long as you are in school and for as long as you want to graduate, you have to. Unless, you want to repeat the same year over and over. In earth-wide terms this is called karma. Until you’ve fully learned your lesson, you will be repeating this life over and over. Ouch!

You may ask whether there is a possibility of skipping grades and avoiding dealing with karma? Yes, there is. Some of us do skip grades. Only wisdom allows you to skip them. How that works is another topic. But karma is a self-regulating universal mechanism and it knows no exceptions.

Notice that my list of religions didn’t include any of the Vedic, pagan and/or ancient Earth-based belief systems. If we are discussing taking our individual power back, it could well be accomplished through the original Vedic system (vedat’ = ‘to know’ in Russian; ‘vedics’ means ‘wise people, people in tune with the ultimate truth;’ also, note the Hindi Vedas). People are awakening to that, albeit slowly. This, however, is a topic for an absolutely new, separate series, to which I will also get eventually.

Last point to wrap it up:

Noeline says: ‘The celebration of mass is a satanic ritual that celebrates the eating of the body of Christ and drinking of his blood.’

Actually, this ritual is a left-over pagan ritual, adopted by Christianity after it suppressed paganism. It symbolizes partaking of the energy of Christ, imbuing yourself with his spirit. Since Christ symbolizes love and selfless purity, it basically signifies a desire to be like him, hence ascend. However, in 3D, in other words, in our fully manifest PHYSICAL WORLD, humans often can’t simply think or be. they need to manifest everything into 3D; make it touchable, tangible. Evolved souls don’t need that, but most humans do. By the way, there is nothing wrong with that, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone.

In the ancient days in CERTAIN (not all) pagan traditions humans ate the body of a specific animal to imbue themselves with that animal’s power. Humans were also sacrificed to gods. These rituals, which sound awful today, in old days were what the full 3D incarnation demanded. Humans, shall we say, were too literal. They needed to touch, feel and eat everything to partake of the energy they wanted. To this day, in the Middle East they sacrifice animals and often treat humans with outright cruelty.

In subtler and more evolved ancient societies, such as the original Vedic world, humans had representations of various pagan gods and universal forces, such as certain foods, flowers, tree bark, crystals that they ate, rubbed into their skin, created tattoos, with which they decorated their bodies and homes.

In other words, eating of the body of Christ and drinking his blood is a modified pagan ritual to suit Christianity’s agenda. Since we lost connection with the logic of ancient rituals, it may seem bizarre from today’s perspective.

I won’t go into the meaning of the word ‘mass.’ But again, this word comes from the same Vedic Slavyano-Arian source, something forgotten by most humans.

I will briefly say that ‘satan’ comes from the same root I discussed above: ‘svet’ – light. It becomes ‘sat’ here, basically signifying ‘fullness.’ Fullness as in: Mother Earth is full, bountiful. It also has a relation to the sacred feminine connected to Mother Earth.

It was a Vedic word. Recall what I said, Vedics were the biggest enemy and competitor of Christianity. Moreover, the sacred feminine had to be suppressed by the patriarchal Christian society. Therefore, any good Vedic words became bad words in the Christian reality as humans needed to be brainwashed into submission. The same process is happening today in Ukraine and many Western countries, as history yet again gets re-written and energetic polarities get reversed from plus to minus.

However, this time it won’t work.

FREE Earth Shift Report 2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY

(How the falsified history of Ukraine was developed and what lessons it teaches us)

Ukraine and Novorossia Elections

As a start, I will summarize some of the latest news and whispers from Ukraine.

The Rada elections in Kiev were largely predictable. Intercepted US State Dept emails from as early as 2006 called Poroshenko ‘our man in Kiev.’ Poroshenko, who has been now appointed president of Ukraine by his Washington handlers, expected a win in these Rada elections. However, his block finished a close second to Yatsenyuk’s – just over 20% each. The two rival parties cannot be distinguished even with a magnifying glass. Obviously, their Washington handlers want to keep both Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk’s egos in check by balancing them out against each other. The good old divide and conquer…

The relatively low showing of the openly nazi parties was due to two factors: the people are sick and tired of their violence and Ukraine has been told by their EU and US handlers to tone down that violence as much as possible because it makes their masters look bad. Still, the field commanders and nazi leaders, who can shoot and torture, but not think, will be in the Rada. Get ready for lots of loud bangs.

The surprise of the elections was the nearly 10% gained by what is considered pro-Russian Opposition Block, the remnant of the Party of the Regions and other forces squeezed and burned out of the country. The hastily organized Opposition Block is widely thought to be a project of the oligarch Levochkin. Therefore, this is still a fight between oligarchs for power. However, there are some semi-decent politicians in this block, who refuse to give up and intend to continue defending the rights of the Russian-speaking majority in Ukraine which are being brutally suppressed. These are nevertheless mostly business people with their own interests (or representing the interests of corresponding oligarch), so I wouldn’t be too hopeful about them. Ironically, the Opposition Block deputies are also the only ones who have any hope of keeping Ukraine together. Every time the population of Ukraine sees the rest of these ‘deputies’ fighting in the Rada, they will be reminded how pointless it is to try to reason with violent thugs, thus convincing the majority to secede.

Ukro-nazis already threatened the Opposition Block politicians not to show their faces in the Rada, or else. Considering these 10% are the only remaining politicians with some knowledge and experience of governing, without them Ukraine’s collapse would be expedited even further.

About 1/3 of the new Rada deputies are on oligarch Kolomoysky’s payroll. This one rules his vassals sitting in Dnepropetrovsk as his fiefdom, while attempting to create an alternative, oligarch-ruled version of Novorossia.

The official number for the country-wide election turnout is 52%, which observers feel is a falsification. Some observers and journalists were told to leave right before the voting ballots would be counted. When they returned, the see-through voting urns – almost empty before – would magically feel up with ballots.

Anna News reports: The simple people on the Ukraine territory are scared to talk for fear of SBU knocking on their door and dragging them off to jail, or for fear of being kidnapped and beaten by nazi thugs roaming cities and towns. Anna News interviews simple people from Ukraine about how they feel, how they live, etc. Many started refusing such interviews for fear of prosecution. From Kherson on the Black Sea the locals report that people were completely apathetic during elections and most decided not to vote, the turnout was extremely low.

Ukro-nazi justice: Several days ago people in many countries commemorated 6 months since the brutal burning of 42 people alive in Odessa. The city people feel extremely intimidated and scared after that event. Meanwhile, Kiev authorities celebrated the gruesome date by announcing a criminal case against Odessa police for letting go of the activists of the anti-maidan arrested after the ukro-nazis attacked them and burned to death their friends on Kulikovo Polie on May 2. Note, no attackers were arrested that day. No criminal investigation to determine and bring to justice the attackers was ever initiated. All these nazi thugs are still walking free, inflcting pain and thorough on others elsewhere in Ukraine. Meanwhile, those who were victims of the attack were arrested, but later let go after the large crowd of locals demanded their release. Now, Kiev is trying to prosecute those officers who let the victims go.

Officially Odessa had the lowest election turnout in Ukraine after Lugansk and Donetsk. Since we know Lugansk and Donetsk didn’t really vote, it’s safe to assume that Odessa’s real turnout was close to zero.

One brave granny from Odessa’s neighboring Nikolaev, who isn’t afraid of prosecution, said that at most 10% of the Nikolaev people voted in these Rada elections, out of these 75% voted for the Opposition Block. She says that the city has been infiltrated with violent western Ukraine nazis and bosses appointed by Kiev. However, there is a silent resistance that is waiting for the opportune moment to strike back. People are still disappearing. Unemployment is universal. There is no heat or hot water despite cold.

People from various areas of Ukraine report the same: waiting when the junta weakens sufficiently so they could take their power back. The longer this lasts (as I predicted) the more people get disgusted and ready to change the present regime.

There is more and more talk everywhere about changing the name of the new country to Novorossia. Novorossia means New Russia. The South and East don’t want anything to do with Ukraine any more – read more below to see where the name ‘Ukraine’ originated from. That will give you a good idea why people don’t want to keep it as a name for the country that will emerge out of the remnants of today’s incongruent conglomeration. The whispers about Novorossia include South, East, Kiev, all of central and northern Ukraine. The idea is to have a country without oligarchs that are presently strangling the failed Ukraine project. However, most agree that Western Ukraine, particularly Lvov and Galichina, where most ukro-nazis are from, is to be excluded from Novorossia.

Meanwhile in Donbass, the nucleus of the future Novorossia: The elections of November 2nd had a record turnout of over 70% on average. From the live streams and eye-witness footage of the DNR and LNR elections it’s clear that people were very passionate about voting. Despite cold and a threat of bombings, many stood in line for hours and hours to cast their vote. The see-through ballot urns were visibly full everywhere. The result again was predictable as the acting heads of both Donetsk and Lugansk governments received the majority of votes. Citizens interviewed while standing in lines to vote were saying how important these elections were for them and that they were voting to be with Russia. This info from Anna News.

The next steps are preparations for the winter and building the new administrative and government structures corresponding with the idea of the ‘people’s republics.’ Both DNR and LNR are now oligarch free. They are still working on redirecting inward their cash flow, taxes and income. These elections legitimize the heads of state, giving them a mandate to act more resolutely.

International observers present in Novorossia elections came from Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, France, Italy, Germany, Abkhazia, Russia and USA. They unanimously announced that elections were transparent, well-organized and democratic. Kiev immediately announced that each observer is now persona non grata in Ukraine. The Greek observers retorted they weren’t interested in visiting Ukraine for as long as it’s fascist. All those who participated/voted in the elections have been labeled terrorists by Kiev (that’s one and a half million terrorists).

The fifth Russian humanitarian convoy consisting of 100 trucks arrived to Donetsk and Lugansk. The West and Kiev immediately called it yet another Russian invasion and labeled diapers, flour, canned baby food and reconstruction materials the military cargo.

Rosenergo sent specialists to repair the badly damaged power lines. Both cities have restored 50% of their power with the help of the Russian specialists. Power also means heat. Since Donbass is sitting on all the coal in the world, at least they definitely won’t freeze in the winter, unlike Ukraine. DNR and LNR announced that they would be willing to sell their coal to Ukraine, should Kiev ask. However, Ukraine is proudly keeping silence preferring to freeze to death.

The Rabid Russophobia in Ukraine

When we talk about the situation in Ukraine today, it’s hard not to notice the exceptionally rabid Russophobia that permeates every pore of Ukraine’s existence. I grew up in Odessa, which still is a part of the artificial state of Ukraine. I went to school with kids from extremely diverse backgrounds. I studied Ukrainian since second grade. My mother was Ukrainian. I traveled all over Ukraine, all over the former USSR and all over the world. I am someone who has repeatedly accurately predicted major global events and developments… I have never seen anything like this, and could never imagine something like this happening in Ukraine.

When I say I’ve never seen anything like this I mean the turnaround that Ukraine has experienced since 1990, when I said goodbye to those parts forever. Sure, in certain parts of the world, for example in the Middle East, the West is ardently hated. But such hatred is based on centuries of Western aggression. It was no different in the 20th or 12th century (recall the Crusades). Yes, there is a pathological hatred of Russia in the West (excluding the sane parts of Western society). But the story hasn’t changed whether you look at the 20th, 19th, 18th, 17th, or earlier centuries.

What is artificially called Ukraine, and what was called historically Malorossia and Novorossia, before that Kievskaya Rus and Galitskaya Rus, is a completely different story. It is the same culture and people as Russia, who speak the same Russian language – granted, with some variations. There are cultures so much more different from the core Russian culture that nevertheless feel absolutely at home in Russia, considering the Russian culture their own.

Moreover, a Gallop poll conducted in 2008 on the post-Soviet space concluded that 5/6th of the residents of Ukraine consider Russian their main native language. Source: Anatoly Vasserman.

Therefore, it is absolutely impossible to explain what is happening in Ukraine from the cultural difference standpoint. The explanation is found elsewhere.

Clearly, should a complete freedom of expression and equal status with Ukrainian be given to Russian, very soon Ukraine would stop needing to be independent as the same culture and language will draw people from Russia and Ukraine together. This is exactly what those who want to divide and conquer, who want to assert their local power, cannot allow. To preserve the sovereignty of Ukraine’s power hungry elites and various imperial and global ambitions of NWO elites, it is necessary to discriminate against the rights of the majority of the population, it is necessary to prevent the population from speaking and thinking in their native language. Hence forced ukrainization and other ugly things I will talk about below.

I have been following Ukraine very closely ever since the maidan started in the end of 2013, and I have noticed a very interesting metamorphosis. If in the beginning of 2014 all Ukraine politicians, including Yanukovich and Poroshenko, absolutely always spoke Ukrainian in public to emphasize their ‘ukraine-ness,’ presently, Ukraine politicians, including rabid Russophobes, ukro-nazis and Poroshenko himself, speak Russian all the time during press conferences and Rada meetings. Of course, they also always spoke Russian in private because this is a much more natural language for them to speak. There are two reasons for that: 1. After threatening to nuke all the Russians, and after the massive exodus out of Ukraine, they are now trying to pacify the Russian-speaking majority in the country that it’s safe to stay. 2. This is also a bid for votes.

The rhetoric has changed like this: “we are not against Russian language or the Russian-speakers, we are against the big, threatening Russia that used to give us free gas and now is refusing to do so; we are against the mean Russia that used to subsidize our economy since Soviet times, and now is refusing to do so. Please, feel free to speak Russian anywhere you go, no one is going to beat you up or kill you for that any more (they did during and after maidan), but we’ll still ban ALL Russian papers, TV or journalists. They are all terrorists because they dare to tell the truth about what’s really happening in Ukraine.”

Certainly, some of this utter stupidity combined with pathological hatred had been brewing under the surface for a long time. In fact, there have always been two Ukraines: one was this nice and peaceful, sometimes exceedingly naive and sleepy place where I grew up; another – the vicious, the hateful, hiding in the shadows and secretly awaiting its chance to attack. This second place was continuously nourished and fed for centuries by certain forces from the West. The flame of hatred was kept artificially alive so at the right moment it could break through and scorch everything in sight.

The fire could have been much worse and the devastation could have been much bigger, if not for the absolute brilliance and level-headedness of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, and his team.

 Post-Soviet Republics and Russia

To understand the background of the Ukrainian situation and its artificial Russophobia, it’s useful to look at other post-Soviet republics.

During Soviet days, the neighboring Moldova was in mint condition due to constant infusions of resources by the Russian Federation – the same thing that happened in Ukraine and other Soviet republics. Brezhnev in particular had a soft spot for Moldova as he worked there at one point. Originally, Brezhnev was from Ukraine, and he heavily invested in Ukraine as well. Russia promoted local cultures, invested and industrialized heavily in ALL 14 Soviet republics, including in large part the Baltics – Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania – who now love to talk about how “Russians oppressed them.”

After the USSR collapse, Russia withdrew from all former republics to deal with her own problems, and as a result most republics quickly became poor and destitute.

Moldova’s elections are coming up and the country is being torn between the EU and Eurasian Union. While the majority of the population wants to be a part of the Eurasian Union, the elites are dragging the country towards EU and towards absorption by Romania. The amount of anti-Russian propaganda in Moldova is mind-boggling as well. In 1990-1992 Moldova went through today’s Ukraine scenario, on a smaller scale. The result was that the richest, most industrialized and productive part of then Moldova, Pridnestrovie, seceded. Presently, other parts of Moldova are threatening to secede, especially Gagauzia and the north. Much more here: LRL2: Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.

I am preparing a separate Earth Shift Report that will address the Baltics and particularly, Latvia, which just had parliamentary elections. Stay tuned for that.

Incidentally, neither Latvia nor Estonia ever existed as separate states. These were territories that passed from Germany and Sweden to Russia as a purchase or based on a peace treaty. I could go much deeper in history, but suffice it to say that it was Lenin, who for the first time gave Latvia and Estonia a status of an independent ‘state.’ These ‘states’ only exist thanks to Lenin’s decree. Others, such as Ukraine, only existed as ‘Soviet Socialist Republics’ in the context of the Soviet Union. Lenin was the ‘founding father’ of their respective nations. It’s interesting that instead of adoring Lenin, all these ‘independent and democratic nations’ hate him pretty viciously and destroy his monuments. Just shows the level of reasons and lucidity of these people.

Out of 14 republics (excluding the Russian Federation), only Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan managed to preserve their Soviet-built enterprises and make them pay in the new era. Belarus also managed to build on them, creating the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle.’  Belarus succeeded because of the cosy relationship with Russia, therefore getting gas at heavily discounted price which makes its exports very competitive. The latter three – due to their own huge reserves of oil and gas, discovered and industrialized by Russia.

Another place that managed to preserve the Soviet inheritance is the break-away republic of Pridnestrovie (formerly part of Moldova) – but without any oil or gas.

The rest squandered their Soviet inheritance to various degree. However, like spoiled brats, some of them blamed Russia for their own mistakes and thievery. The spoiled brats in this case are Georgia, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine. These are all former republics that look to the West. When the USSR fell apart they lost Russia as that ‘parent’ that took care of them, oftentimes spoiling them by giving them more than leaving for herself. Now brats want to latch onto the next ‘surrogate parent’ – EU. The goal is to take, giving little in return. However, the West doesn’t work that way. They won’t give anything for free, in fact they like to take more than they give. Meanwhile, Russia also learned her lesson and doesn’t want to squander her resources for nothing any more.

Thus, the countries that are used to latching on to someone stronger are left in the cold. This breeds irrational hatred that can be maliciously manipulated.

Here is a crucial point to understand about Russia! Unlike the Western empires, such as UK, US, Spain and France, who looted and drained resources of those countries they conquered, Russia drained herself to give to her satellites. Such imbalance had to end badly: on Russia’s side, due to the resentment of the core Russian population; on the side of the republics, due to their sense of absolute entitlement.

As a result, in the 1990s – 2000s, a very strange situation developed, when Russia still supplied Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine and Moldova with gas based on the heavily subsidized Soviet-entitlement-style prices, and in return, Russia got bashing, backstabbing and direct provocations from said republics. At the very same time, large parts, if not most populations of these republics spoke Russian and lived off Russian tourism and banking. A great example of this is the Baltics: Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. The same three Baltic republics, plus Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia, while displaying animosity and openly threatening Russia with NATO expansion, happily continued exporting massive amounts of their products to Russia. This ended recently when Russia adopted a new import policy and embargo.

Subsidizing all these republics was all fine and good while USSR was doing well, but since it took away the resources from Russia proper and gave them disproportionately to the periphery, discontent grew in Russia when the USSR started collapsing. This generated a desire to be separate from the former ethnic republics in Russia proper, which didn’t help with the general relationship with said republics. Russia eventually recovered and started doing on average better than during Soviet times, thus proving that Russian resources had been indeed drained by the periphery subsidies.

But at the same time that Russia withdrew from the republics, US advisors, Soros, NGOs and NWO neocon/neoliberal influences moved in. Presently, we are observing the disastrous results of Russia’s withdrawal from the geopolitically important territories.

However, eventually the pull of Russia, affinity with her culture and worldview, combined with the economic benefits of working in Russia, proved to be so enormous that before long, massive numbers of immigrants from former Soviet republics flooded Russian cities and countryside.

The ignorant president of the USA, Obama, in a speech designed to calm down the Baltics (Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania), recently stated that Russia is so bad that no one wants to live there.

In reality, Russia is #2 country in the world for immigration after USA. At this rate, it will become #1 pretty soon. Massive numbers of residents of various post-Soviet republics work in Russia as guest workers. This especially concerns Ukraine (5.5mln Ukrainians out of arguably 39 million population: 45mln minus 2mln in Crimea and 4 mln in DNR and LNR) and Moldova (700,000+ out of 3.6 mln population). Kyrgyzstan and Armenia numbers are even higher as 1/2 of the population or more work in Russia. Large numbers immigrate from Georgia, Korea, and Central Asia. There are over 3 million Chinese immigrants in Russia. There is growing immigration from the West as well.

Meanwhile, up to 1/2 of the population of the Baltics immigrated to the West. Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are empty.

 Western Propaganda in Ukraine

The Western style propaganda war was unleashed in the oligarch and Western NGO controlled Ukrainian media throughout the 1990s and 2000s. It has culminated between 2004 Orange Revolution and now. Soros-sponsored history books rewrote the entire history of Ukraine to prove that Ukrainians were completely separate from Russians. Western-trained journalists and Western-sponsored newspapers and TV have been promoting “western values’ and bashing anything Russian for over 20 years.

Most journalists from Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries were trained in Poland. Poland acted, and still does, as the massive training camp for anti-Russian media, opposition politicians and color revolutionary training (meaning how to throw Molotov cocktails more effectively and how to set buildings on fire). Trainers in these training seminars and camps are almost exclusively American, Canadian or British. Russian TV did some stories on these secret seminars held oftentimes in an inconspicuous Polish neighborhood. They obtained the lists of instructors with clearly English-sounding names. When they tried to film the inside through the window or glass door, the curtains would be drawn immediately or the door barricaded – all that caught on film.

As some of you may recall, just recently Poland was also implicated in the secret CIA prison and illegal torture scandal. CIA kidnapped people by the thousands and shipped them to the Polish secret prisons, where US torture laws didn’t apply, in violation I might add, of the EU laws.

As a result of this massive subversion of Ukraine, the old spites have been brought out of the woodwork and spun in the media to suit agendas alien to simple Ukrainians. Most of these spites belonged to the western Ukraine nazis, humiliated as a result of their defeat in WWII together with Hitler; others were the old spites of Poland or Lithuania whose past imperial ambitions were defeated more than once by Russia. These irrelevant spites were imposed on the rest of Ukraine.

It is clear that $5 billion Victoria Nuland was bragging about that US spent ‘to subvert Ukraine,’ wasn’t all they spent over the years. They had to pay off the sell-out journalists, fiction history book creators, politicians, and let’s not forget the equipping, training and financing the ukro-nazis from western Ukraine.

The West also had to feed the greediest of them all – Ukraine oligarchs who have been controlling and strangling the poor Ukraine since 1991. Poroshenko – real name Valtsman – is one of them. Valtsman Sr., the father of the Ukraine president, was an underground millionaire and crook from Odessa, who served several years in jail for stealing goods by the trainload during Soviet times. Greed runs in the family.

Incidentally, Ukraine’s president Poroshenko is one of the oligarchs controlling the media. He famously said that he would never sell the Channel 5 he owns. Here is the fact he doesn’t even try to hide: through his Channel 5 he had been influencing the public opinion during the 2004 Orange Revolution and throughout this year’s maidan and subsequent presidential election. So do a handful of other oligarchs controlling the country.

The scale of the lies of the Ukraine media can only be compared to the German Nazi propaganda circa Hitler. Some believe they have gone much further. As much as the Western MSM propaganda is mind-boggling, Ukraine today takes the cake. Russians are constantly accused of invasion, despite the fact that to this day, not a shred of evidence, nor a single picture, footage, or any other conclusive document has been presented. Ukraine MSM routinely lies, showing the Donbass self-defense, consisting of local citizens and volunteers from other countries, including Serbia, France and Spain, and calling it Russian troops. Kiev MSM routinely lies that the Donbass self-defense has shot at local citizens (their own families, in other words) and blew up their own houses. With that, the footage shown would be that of the destruction caused by the Ukraine army shelling. According to the Kiev media, the mass graves found in Donbass occurred because those people killed themselves with their hands tied behind their backs, then neatly dug out graves and buried themselves. Why hasn’t Himmler thought of this! Yeah, I forgot, Himmler was a bit smarter than that.

Meanwhile, Ukraine army openly hired well-paid mercenaries, including those from Poland, Georgia, Romania, Sweden, and other Western countries. Some of these mercenaries bombed innocent civilians in Donbass. Per reports, various US advisors still work by thousands in Ukraine.

Of course we all know the lies associated with MH17 downing.

At the same time, Ukrainians started officially referring to Russians as ‘Moskali’ – derogatory ‘from Moscow.’ By that logic, citizens of Siberia are also from Moscow. This is a direct attempt to incite hatred. This is also done to diminish anyone who is Russian – after all, Moscow is rather small compared to the entire Russian territory.

The word ‘Moskal’ isn’t Ukrainian, but Polish. The role of Poland in this whole disaster in Ukraine is very prominent and is quite a separate story. At one point, when the tribunal will be looking into war crimes in Ukraine, I suspect much ugliness will surface about the extent of Poland’s involvement.

At the same time, the citizens of Donbass are being made look like insects. They call them “coloradi,” as in ‘Colorado beetle’ because the ‘Georgievskaya Lentochka’ – the historic Russian ribbon worn by many as a reminder of the Great Victory in WWII (you’ve probably seen such flags and ribbons) consists of black and orange stripes.

Georgievskaya Lentochka commemorating the courage and sacrifice in the Great War (WWII)

This is a deliberate belittling and dehumanizing of the Russian-speakers as part of the massive brainwashing campaign of the Ukrainian population. If they are insects, then it’s fine to kill and bomb them. It’s hard for most humans to kill other humans. But if they are insects, or separatists, or Russian invasion – no problem. I talked about how the divide and conquer strategy worked historically in Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? All this is happening in front of our very eyes in Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries. The one difference is that presently the power is shifting rapidly from the West to the East, so the old playbook doesn’t work any more.

Tiger

In reality, Georgievskaya Lentochka draws on the coloring of the tiger and symbolizes courage, power and discernment. 

This ancient symbol is also a combination of the sun – orange color, and earth – black color. In other words, it’s a unity of the heaven and earth wisdom, thus symbolizing the yin/yang balance.

I have recently listened to the popular radio show by a well-known Russian comedian and film-maker Mikhail Zadornov called “Neformat: The Divided States of America.” Zadornov always had an independent streak and sharp tongue, often criticizing powers that be, including Putin. Even he now supports Putin. That said, he was a close friend of Yeltsin in the early 1990s, and he was at the time, as many others in Russia, pro-Western democracy. He admits he changed his views ever since, which is a mark of a smart man – only fools don’t evolve. Here is a quote from Zadornov: “Don’t malign the Soviet Union, don’t cut off your roots. Those who spit at their past, don’t have a future. By the way, all those who lived during Soviet times now recall it as the best time of their life. Back then, there were many more good, kind people compared to today, when we live under capitalism.”

Incidentally, here is the video in which ukro-nazis are demolishing the largest in the world historic monument to Lenin and beating up people who try to object: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy, and related, The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 2: Letter From a Russian Liberal.

NEW Intel and Predictions: Peace and War Crimes in Ukraine? Russian Gas or Cold Winter?

Only then we can defeat Russia when we make Russians in Ukraine hate Russians in Russia – whatever Western politician said that in the 19th century knew exactly what he was talking about. Think about it! If I heard this quote, so did those in the West whose life’s dream it is to do away with Russia. And as we see from what’s going on in Ukraine, they are acting on it. We live in the information matrix, where those who control the info-stream control the world. The image of Russia as an enemy was created in the past 23 years of ‘independence’ in many of the post-Soviet countries. Of course, in each case they had to draw on legitimate, or in most cases imaginary, historic reasons. Sometimes history was falsified, and sometimes it was turned upside down. The absolutely impossible to believe change that happened to Ukraine in the short 20 years is one of the best illustrations of how history is re-written and falsified just as soon as it happens. However, the roots of Russophobia, going hand in hand with a profoundly close connection of Russia and Ukraine, go much deeper in history.

What are the Roots of the Radical Russophobia in Ukraine?

“You said that Russians didn’t suppress the minorities, and that it was more the other way around. That seems logical, but it also raises the issue with the Ukraine today. Many say the radical Ukrainian sentiment was basically started in the USSR. Much milder than today, of course, but strong enough that it went wild once independence occurred. You might want to go over that in a post at some point. If you keep telling people that Russians are bad, including people in the historically Russian areas of the Ukraine, they will eventually agree.”

This is an excellent question raised by Paul Plane of the Plane Truth show in the comment to my post: Raising Chi Against Hatred: The Suppressed Story of Russian Songs that Unite World Cultures. The Plane Truth/Time Monk Radio are friends of the FuturisTrendcast (see Lada Ray interviews with the Plane Truth here). I addressed parts of this issue in various articles and interviews,  but I do realize how difficult it is for those who grew up in the West to reconcile this with all the lies they had been fed since childhood. In this article I have put together a comprehensive analysis of this important issue. Note, I am just scratching the surface; there are deeper and very fascinating reasons, which concern everyone alive on the planet. I will eventually touch upon those in my future Earth Shift Reports and LadaRayLive shows.

First, let’s start with a few psychological premises and historic truths that may open your eyes  

1. In any culture at all times there will be a certain amount of dissent against central power or against majority – sometimes justified, sometimes based on personal likes, dislikes, disappointments and power-mongering aspirations, whether justified or not. How far this dissent will go depends on factors such as: the strength of central power; support of the population; is there an economic crisis/collapse; and very importantly, are any foreign powers feeding said dissent with money, weapons and subversive propaganda. When above conditions don’t apply, the dissent is negligible or dormant.

2. Humans at large are prone to jealousy for someone more successful than they are. This usually comes from the personal sense of powerlessness, when people feel they aren’t in control of their own life. This applies to both individuals and countries.

3. Humans at large are prone to fear and panic, as well as hatred, born from fear and the above sense of powerlessness.

4. Ukraine had been subjected over the years to all of the above. Ukrainian dissent was dormant during the Soviet years, when Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was considered second most economically developed republic of the Union, after Russian Federation. This happened because Russia/USSR flooded Ukraine with technology, advanced specialists, industrialization, and simply with money.

5. Apart from the above, Ukrainians do have this interesting quality, particular to them. I did write about that in one of my past  articles, where I pointed out the very well-known Ukrainian saying: “If I can’t eat them all, I’ll bite into each” (sounds like a vampire). In Ukrainian: “Yaksho ne z’im to ponadkusuyu,” meaning, if I can’t have something, no one else will.

See, Russians never had any such saying; quite the opposite – Russians are very generous, oftentimes to a fault. As we know, national sayings aren’t born by accident – they appear and take root based on the long-term observation of the manifest human nature. It seems, Ukrainians had the opportunity to observe the ‘if I can’t have it, no one will’ type of behavior among their brethren quite a bit.

The USSR collapse aftermath

In 1991, Soviet Union fell apart peacefully and quietly, practically on a handshake. Following that, Russians withdrew from everywhere on post-Soviet space to deal with their own collapse and internal problems, leaving at the mercy of the nationalistic, mega-corrupt, and oftentimes openly fascist governments over 25 million ethnic Russians who lived in various post-Soviet republics. In addition to that, another 100+ million people of various ethnic origins, who considered themselves belonging to the Greater Russian culture, were stranded in different corners of the post-Soviet space, now foreigners and illegals in Russia proper, which they considered their greater mother culture. Add to that another few hundred million Russians and pro-Russian all over the world suffering from a massive confusion and withdrawal. This, as Vladimir Putin once said (and I concur), is the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times. The Russian people now constitute the largest EVER divided ethnicity on planet Earth.

The turmoil and confusion in people’s heads was tremendous, and this included not only ethnic Russians – as I said, it also included about 100 million of others on post-Soviet space who, being Ukrainians, Belarus, Georgians, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Armenians, Abkhazians, Moldavians, Kyrgyzs, Gagauzs, Latvians, Poles, Bulgarians, Jews, also considered themselves Russian. Some people had to go through a lot of hardship, and some developed resentment, feeling they were left in the cold by the country they considered their mother culture. Some moved to Russia as guest workers with very little rights (but making a lot more money than in their native parts), and some chose to emigrate abroad, where salaries were much higher, but life much more boring and alien to them.

However, as Russia started recovering, and the West’s economic conditions began worsening, the cultural re-integration of the Greater Russian culture slowly but surely gained speed. It has been going on for years – through movies, songs, books and art competitions (as depicted in my above-mentioned article) as well as through humor of the traditional game show called KVN. KVN is older than I am; its fans are many and it manages to unite people not only from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the Baltics, but also from Georgia (just recently a sworn enemy of Russia), UK, Germany and Israel. There are now Africans, Chinese and Koreans playing KVN. I write about some of the above issues in Why US/EU/NWO Can Never Defeat Russia. Also watch: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU and read Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union”.

Russia started recovering from the 1990s knockout AFTER Putin came to power. When Putin first appeared on stage in 1999, he wasn’t taken seriously; in fact, he received threats and pretty humiliating remarks from other political forces. It was at the time when he was looking for support for the upcoming 2000 elections. To clear the way for Putin, Yeltsin stepped down ahead of time, and I recall that moment very clearly. Although I resided in the US, I listened to the nationally televised address by Yeltsin from the Kremlin on December 31, 1999. After traditionally congratulating everyone with the New Year 2000 and with the beginning of the new millennium, Yeltsin publicly apologized for all he had done wrong and asked for the Russian people’s forgiveness. Then he announced he was stepping down.

I wasn’t concerned with geopolitics back than; nor did I care about Yeltsin. But I did care about Russia and her people. I felt immediately that something very important was about to happen. Time has proven that my feeling was correct. The story of who and what was behind Yeltsin stepping down and Putin coming to power is extremely interesting in its own right. I will discuss that in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: The Putin Enigma.

Ukraine Today

When Ukraine became “independent” in 1991, everyone in the West, as well as many inside Ukraine itself, predicted that it would become the beacon of how the newly FREE countries liberated from the Soviet ‘occupation,’ should develop and grow. It was said that Ukraine would be the beacon of democracy and a stellar performer. It was a general Western and Ukrainian consensus that Ukraine would develop and grow much better than Russia. The demise and a full disintegration of Russia was also predicted in the West, and among those Russians who considered themselves smart, Western-oriented intellectuals. I believe some of those who predicted all this were Kissinger, Brzezinski and Albright. From that I make the inevitable conclusion: IT IS BECAUSE USA LISTENS TO ‘ANALYSTS’ LIKE THESE, US POLICIES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE A COMPLETE FAILURE AND DISASTER. I suggest everyone start listening to the predictions of those who know what they are talking about. Yours truly is a good start. 😉 My predictions can be found here.

Ukraine was juxtaposed to Russia as a great democratic success. Same was said in the 1990/2000s about Georgia, Latvia, Estonia – and look what is happening in these countries now: empty coffers, skyrocketing debt, 1/4-1/2 (and more) of the population are migrant workers in Russia or West as Soviet-built economy has been destroyed. Meanwhile, Russia turned around and continued adjusting, growing and developing.

Ukraine experimented with being “independent” for 23 years. The result is the severely damaged economy, hyper-inflation, currency collapse, civil war, oligarch takeover and takeover by foreign powers. If Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic’s GDP ranked #10 in the world in 1990, independent Ukraine’s GDP ranks #63 in the world as of 2013 (data by Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, former Rada deputy, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine). Note, this GDP was calculated in 2013, before the maidan and Kiev junta managed to destroy the rest of Ukraine’s economy.

If they truly cared for their country instead of their oversized egos and fat offshore bank accounts in payment for their services to NWO elites, they would have taken a good look at what THEY did wrong that caused this disaster. But of course it’s just so much easier to blame Russia.

In the past 23 years the MSM, politics and education were gradually taken over by the West together with the Ukrainian oligarchs with Swiss villas and wealth stored in Western offshores, whose interests coincided with the interests of the West.

Soros-funded history books have been fed to school children. According to this fiction Ukrainians descended from the unknown tribe of the ancient Ukrs – absolutely separate from Russians, and not from the Kievan and Galitskaya Rus. Russia in these books is portrayed as aggressor. In reality Russia saved Ukraine from the invasion and annihilation by Poles and Turks 360 years ago by accepting Ukraine’s plea to admit it into Russia. Ukraine history books portrayed Crimea and Novorossia as part of its territory, completely disregarding the truth – more about that later. In the Ukr history books Jesus Christ, Julius Caesar, as well as Adam and Eve, were all… genuine Ukrainians. It would be funny if it wasn’t that sad.

During the prosperous Soviet days the Ukrainian nationalism and envy were dormant. They woke up and proliferated with a vengeance when the economic collapse hit the country, therefore proving the old American adage that invariably ‘it’s the economy, stupid.’ It is interesting that Ukraine’s ruling class and the majority of the population, especially those nationalist or fascist-inclined, are in a complete and total denial as to what is happening in their country. Again – it’s so much more convenient to blame Russia!

The economy destruction gave birth to political unrest and the super-corrupt and sold-out elites. Such juicy pre-requisites coupled with pretty ignorant and savage population are a boon for the West in order to weaken Russia further. There is no question that Russians were asleep at the wheel geopolitically since 1985, when Gorbachev came to power. Later, Russia had to deal with her own demons… and own super-corrupt politicians and oligarchs. When Russians pretty much pulled out of Ukraine on all levels (this applies to the entire post-Soviet space), US/EU/NWO rolled in right away. And presto! This volatile confluence of events and conditions created the gross imbalance we are observing today.

It may seem from all I have said that Ukraine has never been a conscious ‘geopolitical subject,’ but rather an ‘object of geopolitics.’ It is actually true. Ukraine never had a successful run as an independent country.

Moreover, Ukraine was only successful when it was a part of Russia. This statement can be verified year after year with clear historic facts. Ukraine reached its pinnacle as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic during Soviet times. From a small, agricultural and poor area around Kiev and what is now central Ukraine, it grew into a huge territory, courtesy of various Soviet leaders, at the expense of others. Ukraine’s economy, if taken separately from the USSR totals, was ranked No. 10 in the world; and Russians even made sure Ukraine had its own representation in the UN and other international bodies. Of course, all this was promptly forgotten by the nezalezhna – once Ukraine turned independent.

It wasn’t my plan to bring up the issue of karma in this article, but how can I resist when it’s staring me in the eye: where you are going, there you are! In the words of my novelette, CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians), “Karma can be a beautiful maiden… or a bitch.”

THE REAL HISTORY OF UKRAINE

No, the anti-Russian sentiment wasn’t born during Soviet times. If anything, any real Ukrainian should be grateful to the Soviets. After all, it was Lenin in 1918-1922, who ‘gave’ all of east and south, including Donbass (Lugansk and Donetsk), Zaporozhie, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Odessa, Kherson and Nikolaev to Ukraine. This was done to appease the existing ultra-nationalist sentiment there, plus to give the poor, agricultural Ukraine (What I call ‘Ukraine proper’ – the areas concentrated around Kiev, central and northern Ukraine) an industrial base and educated work force, which could bring them sustainable revenue. The goal was to significantly pull up their standard of living. Under Stalin, this idea was expanded as Russians built an extremely strong industrial base in Ukraine, off which Ukraine has been living till today. The fact that they, and their oligarchs, never modernized or added to that base, but like a bad drunk preferred to squander their rich Soviet inheritance, speaks volumes of their ability to self-govern. That notwithstanding, they blame Russia.

As many of my readers know, I grew up in Odessa, a beautiful and wealthy Black Sea port and resort, built by the Russians in 1793. Just like Crimea and other productive and wealthy areas of the South and East, Odessa became a part of Ukraine due to the short-sighted actions of the Soviet leaders; in this case, Lenin.

This is the historic truth. However, the ignorant and sold-out media, politicians and writers in the West and Ukraine will routinely lie and blame Russia for “invading Odessa.” The truth is, Odessa always was and always will be a Russian city.

I once came across an American/Israeli novelist Daniel Silva who is routinely producing bestseller spy thrillers based, unfortunately, on outright lies. I once picked up a book written by this ‘novelist’ in which action took place in Russia, Crimea and Odessa. The descriptions were so bad and so far from the truth that it was clear the man had no idea whatsoever how either Odessa or Crimea should look, the names were absolutely wrong, and of course – both Crimea and Odessa were occupied by the bad Russians, until in 1991 the poor Ukrainians (with completely idiotically sounding non-Ukrainian names) reclaimed their CORE (??) territories of Crimea and Odessa. I haven’t seen a bigger BS in my life.

This is how Western propaganda works – it’s not just MSM or politicians. They pay big bucks to sold-out puppets like the above-mentioned novelist Silva to produce a lie in a pretty wrapper. This alone gives us a good idea how one’s book becomes a bestseller in the US – write a lie big enough, preferably about Russia, China or the Middle East, and you are guaranteed a best-seller status. Needless to say, I dropped that book like a hot potato. Guess what, I see Daniel Silva books all the time on bestseller lists. Looks like their propaganda keeps working.

Every library and store would carry shelves upon shelves of lies written by professional crooks. So many will read them and think this is the truth. In the information vacuum what choice do they have? And that’s how you create zombified, manipulated, brainwashed populace that you twist into a pretzel on moment’s notice.

I write the TRUTH in my books and this is why they don’t carry them in libraries and stores. Do check out my paperbacks and ebooks, and support my writing by buying them! Incidentally, all my ebooks are on Pre-Holiday Book Sale! See more in BOOKS.

Just like in Crimea, 100% of Odessans always spoke Russian and/or a special Odessan mixed language. Recently, I was watching clips with pro-Ukrainian, pro-ukronazi demonstration in Odessa; they showed young people and families with children who spoke and carried slogans in Ukrainian. I can assure you, no real Odessan in his/her right mind ever speaks Ukrainian – these were the Kiev junta plants. To me, this little clip proved the level of lies, and the crude, unprofessional deception of the Kiev junta. They couldn’t get the real citizens for this protest, so they brought in the traveling circus, and with children – a nice touch!

It was also Stalin who ‘added’ to Ukraine – note, to Ukraine, NOT Russia! – some regions of Western Ukraine that belonged previously to Romania, Hungary and Poland. Russia did have a strong historic claim on these areas (in medieval times this area was called Galitskaya Rus and the population was ethnically Russian, Russin or Malorussian), but they were taken over or annexed by other countries in the last few centuries, until Stalin annexed them in 1940 to extend the USSR border, thus creating a buffer zone in case of Hitler’s attack. Presently, these are territories that may be disputed by the above-mentioned countries.

And of course, Ukrainians should have been grateful to Russians forever due to Khrushchev giving them Crimea in 1954. Instead, they treated the Crimea and its people like…. I will omit the word that comes to mind. Together with all other undeserved Soviet inheritance, they squandered the prized possession such as Crimea. Incidentally, you can listen to the Lada Ray Live show on YouTube for more on Crimea and the theft of the Crimean Scythian gold. Listen to this episode.

Earlier history of Ukraine

16-19th century. When large parts of what was called at different times the Kievan (Kievskaya) Rus, Galitskaya Rus, Malorossia, and subsequently, Ukraine, were taken over at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, some of the local population was gradually re-molded into the Western-centric mentality and brainwashed.

Historic facts

In the 19th century Austria-Hungary built concentration camps for some of western Ukrainians, who always called themselves Russins and who – oh, surprise – considered themselves Russians. These camps were built for those who didn’t submit to the ‘we are separate from Russia’ ideology. There was a well covered-up genocide of the Russins in western Ukraine when the whole villages were either burned down or forcibly converted into Catholicism.

Divide and conquer: It is generally understood by researchers that project ‘Ukraine is a separate nation’ was born in Austria-Hungary in the 18th century. Later, it was adopted and expanded by Poland. The goal was to tear Ukrainians away from Russia. From the standpoint of an occupier it’s not good when a part of your country (parts of Ukraine, in fact parts of Russian historic and cultural territory, were occupied by Poland and Austria-Hungary, and before that, by Lithuania) considers you an illegal occupier and keeps looking at Russia as their motherland. Look at the striking parallels with today’s Donbass! They don’t consider Ukraine their motherland; instead they keep raising Russian flags, declaring allegiance to Russia.

Project Ukraine: 360 years ago cossack Bogdan Khmelnitsky and his people voted to re-unite with Russia. Other choices that didn’t get much popular support were joining the Osmanic Turkey or Poland. Russia accepted the territory with the capital in Kiev, which at that point was called Malorossia. Novorossia (currently the East and South of Ukraine) was NOT a part of Malorossia.

In medieval times, the neighboring Poland and Lithuania had big emperial designs. There were times when both Poland and Lithuania grew through conquest of neighboring Slavic lands. The back and forth struggles between states continued for centuries, until during the Time of Troubles Poland, which by then absorbed Lithuania, tried to conquer Russia, installing a Polish king on the Russian throne. As my readers may know from reading my Predictions and articles, any attempt to conquer Russia always ends very badly for the conqueror wannabe.

The popular uprising of the Russian people against occupiers produced true heroes and leaders. One of the heroes was local peasant Ivan Susanin, who volunteered to show the Polish army a secret path into Moscow to ensure their surprise attack, but instead led them into swamps, where he sacrified his life dying together with the Poles, thus saving Moscow from imminent invasion. The leaders of the 1612 uprising were citizen-commoner Kuzma Minin and Prince (Knyaz’) Pozharsky, who organized a grass-roots army financed by rich merchants and simple citizens alike. It was a truly popular movement when people donated their last money and when everyone rose regardless of their age and status in society.

The defeat of the occupiers was only the beginning. The result of every aggression against Russia is always the same. The result of this aggression was that eventually both Lithuania and Poland became parts of the Russian Empire. As I said, it’s never a good idea to attack Russia.

From this it is clear that some in Poland, and Lithuania too, had kept a certain amount of resentment due to their historic defeat. Interestingly enough, while Ukraine was now a part of Russia, Polish lords (pani) still were the largest land owners and serf-owners in Ukraine. Russians didn’t expropriate their private property. Serfs were Ukrainian peasants, sort of half-slaves who were owned and could be sold or bought by their lords. The Polish pani were very vicious and cruel as documented in many Ukrainian works of literature. The greatest Ukrainian poet, Taras Shevchenko (see more about him below) dedicated his whole life to exposing and telling the truth about the exploitation of Ukrainians by the Polish pani. There were lots of peasant uprisings with manors and palaces being burned.

In fact, Ukraine was so named in Poland, not in Russia. In Russia the territory around Lvov, Kiev and Poltava was called Malorossia (or Russia Minor). ‘Ukraina’ ‘vkraina’ or ‘okraina’ means the outskirts in many Slavic languages. To Poles Ukraine was the outskirts of their once bigger empire. The name was used parallel with the official name of Malorossia in everyday language for quite some time, but it gained popularity since mid-19th century thanks to the Polish intellectuals from Lvov.

The name of the man who was the driving force behind ‘Ukraine is separate from Russia’ project was Kalinka. He was a Polish ksendz (Catholic priest). In 1864 he created a plan to separate Ukraine from Russia following a historic event in 1861 when Russian Emperor Alexander freed serfs. The now free farmers were granted some of the lands that Polish pani-shliakhta considered their own. There was a rather significant Polish shliakhta insurrection in 1963. However, that insurrection was quelled not by the Russian army or police, but by the self-armed army consisting of former serfs themselves who were promised lands of those Polish lords who participated in the insurrection. Clearly, the Polish shliakhta never forgot their humiliation and defeat. The idea was if they can’t have Ukraine, then it won’t belong to Russia either.

Incidentally, current Ukrainian anthem adopted in the 1990s was also written in the beginning of the 20th century as a semi-joke by several Polish intellectuals from Lvov, plotting their revenge on Russia. The anthem is infamous for its depressive and incongruent lyrics, such as, “So far Ukraine is alive…” Meaning, they are expecting it to die soon? Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy… The verses that became the present day Ukraine anthem were copied quite talentlessly, but with a purpose – to diminish and destroy – from the Polish anthem. In the Polish anthem there are words, “Poland is still alive (but unlike in the Ukraine anthem, the next line clarifies), while we are…” The clarifying line gives the whole thing an entirely different meaning.

Considering that Polish pani owned Ukraine lands and people, this is the first time in history the occupied are proudly singing the anthem written by their occupiers.

Opening the Pandora’s Box: since Ukraine wants to join the EU, Poles are preparing historic claims on Ukrainian lands they used to own. 70,000 such claims exist in Poland alone. There are also several thousand in Romania, Hungary and Israel. Ownership claims from the descendants of the dreaded Polish pani include agricultural lands, manors, villages, buildings, whole cities and factories.

A Note from Lada:

I will leave outside the scope of this article the discussion as to how close Ukrainians are to Russians, or how close Poles and Lithuanians are to Russians for that matter. Very close, I can assure you. However, here we are not talking of ancestral closeness, but of ideology. In medieval times this ideology was based on difference in religion, with Vatican/Catholicism being the aggressor. Later, in the 18th/19th century, it was based on ethnicity, falsification of historical roots and allegiance to the crown. In the 20th century, it became the communism vs. capitalism fight. And in the 21st century, they again dragged out the moth-eaten 18th-19th century’s falsified history and allegiance.

But wait! do you notice THE COMMON DENOMINATOR in all these cases? The ENEMY NUMBER 1 is ALWAYS RUSSIA! It doesn’t matter what ideology they peruse. What matters is how easy it is to brainwash and zombify humans.

As a comparative linguist and mystical futurist (see my articles about the Mysteries of Linguistics), I can tell you that the peoples of Europe, and by extension, of Eurasia, ARE the same people, or at least, very close relatives with the same roots. I can also tell you that in a cosmic sense, we are all ONE.

It is a shame that people who are so close can’t live in peace!

I’ll also add the following: it is clear to me that most of the world’s population does want to live in peace and cooperation, which includes the majority in the countries/continents I sometimes criticize, such as Ukraine, Poland, US, UK, and Europe. However, certain forces on our planet are after unlimited power at the expense of others. This ruthless drive for power and money is what creates wars and instability. These forces change their shape and flags in time and space, but their essence always remains the same. As long as people allow themselves to be led by their lowly emotions, such as fear, greed and anger, they will always be a willing cannon fodder and useful fools in the hands of these master manipulators.

For more on how greed, fear and other lowly emotions produce catastrophic results read/watch:

Other examples: The same situation occurred in 2008 in South Ossetia/Abkhazia – Georgia war. Serbians will never forget how the former Yugoslavia was broken up and how Serbia was bombed in the 1990s. Today, the Crimea and Donbass-like scenario is taking place in parts of Moldova, specifically, Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia – both had referendums in which about 97% of citizens voted for re-uniting with Russia. I am following the Moldova/Pridnestrovie/Gagauzia story very closely, as it may explode any moment. See my article Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union” and special video report: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.

Back to Ukraine. Of course we shouldn’t forget about the forced religious conversion of Ukrainians from Orthodoxy into Catholicism, which started around 17-18th century and continues till today. In those days religious conversion was the best way to divide cultures. Same happened in Serbia/Yugoslavia, where Muslim and Catholic religions were used to divide and pit against each the traditionally Orthodox Christian Southern Slavs.

The story of Ukrainian pro- and anti-Russian mentality is very well depicted in the famous historic story by Nikolay Gogol, Taras Bulba. It is the story of a Cossack and his two sons. The world-famous Russian author Nikolay Gogol was from Ukraine, and to him it would have never occurred to say that he wasn’t Russian. Same goes for the celebrated 19th century Ukrainian poet and thinker, Taras Shevchenko, whose whole life was spent in a fight against the Polish shliakhta, or Polish pani – rich Polish landowners who owned a lot of Ukraine’s lands. Shevchenko spoke up in protection of the simple Ukrainians who were exploited by the Polish shliakhta. Taras Shevchenko is called the ‘Great Kobzar’ in Ukraine and is celebrated as the biggest Ukrainian poet. Meanwhile, most of Shevchenko’s works are written in Russian, and only a small portion – in Ukrainian. Gogol wrote almost exclusively in Russian.

Taras Shevchenko saw the best and only protection for Ukraine in being a part of Russia, the same way as the leader of Ukraine Bogdan Khmelnitsky 360 years ago saw Ukraine’s future as one with Russia. Bogdan Khmelnitsky asked Russia to accept Ukraine as part of its territory and Russia said ‘yes,’ thus protecting Ukraine from a hostile takeover. By the way, 360 years ago, a truly democratic referendum was conducted in cities and villages to decide whether Ukraine should in fact join Russia. Khmelnitsky’s cossacks went from town to town and asked whether citizens wanted to be under Russia, Poland or Osmanic Empire. And everywhere citizens unanimously responded, “with Russia” (source: Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, leader of the progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine: Link). Since then, Ukraine has devolved substantially in terms of democracy.

The 18th century Ukrainian poet/philosopher Skovoroda wrote in his bio: “Russian philosopher.” Same goes for the 19th century Ukrainian poetess, Lesia Ukrainka (Lesia the Ukrainian). These people are not just anyone – their portraits are on the contemporary Ukraine currency.

Notice that they celebrated their heritage, just like a resident of Moscow, Rostov, Ryazan, or the Urals, would celebrate their own local heritage, but at the same time, they felt a part of the Greater Russian culture. Today’s Ukrainians have become masters at denying the obvious.

Taras_Shevchenko_bw

Taras Shevchenko

When I grew up in Odessa, our biggest park was, still is, called the Shevchenko Park. In school, we all learned the poetry of Taras Shevchenko in Ukrainian, although 100% of the multi-national population of Odessa ALWAYS spoke Russian (the language today’s Ukraine has tried to officially ban) and Odessa wasn’t even supposed to be a part of Ukraine. Just a reminder of how all-inclusive the Russian culture was and is, and how today’s Ukro-fascism is the complete opposite of that.

See my popular articles about Odessa with great images:

Interesting example: After WWII, Germany was divided into two countries. East Germany is mostly Prussia, another part of Germany is called Saxonia, yet another Bavaria. All these areas historically have their own dialects. There are about 50,000 Serbs in Germany that have lived there for millenia, except in today’s Germany they are called ‘Sorbs.’ Does it occur to anyone to say one part is German and another isn’t? Did it ever occur to anyone to deny east and west of Germany didn’t deserve to be together? No – they reunited as one nation. In parts of Germany they speak language the other parts have trouble understanding; yet, they all consider themselves German despite big differences in psychology and language.

Historic truth: From the above, we can already see that in 19th century and prior, those who are called today Ukrainians thought of themselves as Russian. Ukraine had a distinct, and very lovely dialect. Ukrainian was a dialect, along with Belorussian, until Lenin and the Bolsheviks decided to upgrade it to a language. Bolsheviks have done this to many other dialects on the Soviet space as well. Russian linguists oftentimes worked overtime to create alphabets for those small dialects that had no written language, thus upgrading them and giving them second life. This was the way Bolsheviks wanted to celebrate the diversity of Russia, elevating the dignity of small cultures. As a linguist I know a thing or two about that.

But the story goes deeper. During Peter the Great there was a war with Sweden. Appointed by Peter Ukraine’s governor (it was the Ukraine that didn’t include today’s East, South, West and Crimea), Ukrainian Cossack Getman Mazepa, betrayed Russia and sided with Sweden. Let’s also remember that Ukraine was still called Malorossia in those days. Here is a vivid illustration of how far today’s official Ukraine has gone: Ukrainian school history books describe Getman Mazepa as a hero. They also portray as a hero Stepan Bandera, Shukhevich and other ukro-nazis who headed SS Division Galichina and similar outfits during WWII, and who were responsible for massacring hundreds of thousands of Russians, Jews, Ukrainians and Poles.

The attempted Swedish invasion of Russia failed. Swedish king Karl lost to Peter in the Battle of Poltava. Poltava is a city located in today’s central Ukraine. It has to be noted that attempts to invade and conquer Russia by the West are as old as the world itself. I explained the West’s maniacal desire to conquer Russia in PREDICTONS and in Predictions: The Real Reasons for West’s Anti-Russian Sanctions. I will be expanding on my predictions eventually, so stay tuned.

Russians are well-aware of all these historic episodes, but they have been customarily closing their eyes to the facts, pretending it never happened in order to keep the “bad peace in the family,” following the Russian principle that ‘bad peace is better than a good war.’ They would usually do so until it were impossible to keep such peace and the rosy glasses that went with it.

Is Kiev really the Mother of all Russian Cities?

We have to dig even deeper from here. There is a vernacular floating around that ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities.’ This phrase was born of Lenin’s/Bolsheviks’ desire to appease Ukraine ultra-nationalists circa 1918-20 and to create the ‘brotherhood of nations.’ Admirable, but incredibly misguided. Russians customarily repeat this phrase, without thinking what it means.

In reality, during the medieval times Kiev was a large, important and rich city, but hardly the ‘mother of all Russian cities.’ The history of the Russian civilization was deliberately re-written and shortened to make it seem as if Russia was only a 1000 years old. The ancient Rus (Slavic) chronicles were burned and any evidence of the many, many millenia of the Rus (alternatively called Slavyano-Arian) culture all over the world, including in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the British Isles, Mediterranean, the Urals, Siberia, beyond the Arctic Circle, Egypt, and on North American continent, erased. However, all this information is now coming out as the new advanced scientific methods allow to read things that were unreadable before, and calculate mathematically past events that were falsified. The falsifications were so widespread that literally we can all throw out the entire history we ever studied, and learn it from scratch. This concerns Russia, Eurasia, Asia, Europe, America and the Middle East.

Extremely advanced Rus cities existed well before Kiev everywhere, including those places considered today too cold for human habitation, such as the Kolsky peninsula in the White Sea beyond the Arctic Circle, the northern Ural Mountains, Arctic Siberia near the North Pole, to name a few. It is proven that advanced civilizations existed as far as 40 thousand years ago, and it is believed that they also thrived much, much longer prior. On the other hand, very important Rus/Slavic cities also existed in Western Europe, including in what is today Mediterranean, Italy and Germany. This includes the famous historic cities, such as Venice, Verona, Vienna, Rome, Troy, Berlin, Bern, Pompei, to name just a few. Venice was built by ancient Slavs called Veneds, and so was Vienna. The close relatives of Veneds, Et-ruskans (in Russian: Et-russki) had built Rome. Look at the word “Ro-me.” Now look at the word “Rossiya.” You can say “Rus” and you can say “Ro-ssiya. “Ro-me” — “Ro-ssiya.”

The brainwashing was so great that even the majority of Russians, including most Russian scientists, Lenin and the Bolsheviks, went along with the “Rus is 1000 years of age” theory. That’s why they promoted Kiev as the most important, title city of the medieval Rus, from which the entire history of Russia supposedly began. (I write about some of this in the Forbidden Linguistics. Linguistics can help us uncover the hidden mysteries and clarify historic distortions.)

If we take the medieval era alone, and only within the contemporary Russian territory, in 5-10th centuries (and well before that) there were cities of the Golden Ring (Suzdal, Vladimir, etc.) located around Moscow, as well as Veliky Novgorod (Great Novgorod), that were at least just as important as Kiev – possibly more. The age of Moscow is likely at least several thousand years, not 900 years, as the mainstream history will have you believe.

The actual name of Moscow is Moskva in Russian. The name was distorted, perhaps accidentally. It was called Maskova well before the year 1147, which is erroneously considered the first mention of Moscow in chronicles, and therefore its birthday. Of course it is the first mention since all earlier mentions were destroyed! So, the name Maskova (source: Russian linguist, Prof. Valery Chudinov, Russian Academy of Sciences Member) comes from ‘maska.’ Maska is the Russian word, from which the Western word mask had originated.

The word masquerade comes from Russian maskarad: maska + rad. Rad = ‘rad-ovatsia’ – to experience joy, to have fun, as well as to commune/talk with others. Incidentally, the Ukraine parliament is called ‘Rada,’ or a place where people are supposed to commune and discuss things, preferably with joy ;). Instead they often have fist fights there, completely negating the true meaning of this ancient word. The word ‘rad’ is very, very ancient and it has a very profound meaning. I will talk more about it in a future report related to the discoveries of the Russian scientists.

In the ancient days, maska had a broader meaning and symbolized anything artistically painted. Before that, it symbolized Vedic (ancient Rus pagan) religious paintings. When Russia adopted Orthodox Christianity, it became the first name for icons. However, the word undoubtedly has pre-Christian meaning and very ancient origin.

Incidentally, the word ikona, ‘icon’ in English, is also a very ancient Russian word. What we know as a Russian icon today was called “maska” in those ancient days, and Maskova (Moskva) was the place where these icons were painted. The real age, origins the true global importance of the Rus language and culture (also referred to as Slavic), would be a separate topic. The words such as “ikona,” “Rus” or “Ros,” and “Slav” are hugely important for all of us.

I’ll give you a hint: it is precisely because the earthly importance and global weight of the Rus culture and language is much greater than customarily portrayed, there had always been forces bent on diminishing and maligning Russia and Russian culture. There is so much more to say on the subject, and I promise we’ll talk about it in my future reports.

The reason I talk so much about the “Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities” myth is because it is very important to understand the essence of today’s hatred of certain members of the Ukrainian society towards everything Russian. It is this false idea that is at the core of their staunch belief that Russians are inferior, therefore, they – the real heirs of the ancient Kievan Rus, the real ‘Title Slavic culture’ – should be the richest, most prosperous and get all the influence and credit in world affairs. This kind of sick mentality can also be easily recognized from the hysterical speeches by Hitler and Goebbels; it is born of a severe inferiority complex. This kind of horribly low vibration is what those forces who want to control and destroy Ukraine, and then through Ukraine get to Russia, gladly latch on to.

But this myth would have never endured if Russians themselves didn’t parrot it, partly because of own ignorance and partly because of the Russian psyche’s unique quality of generosity – why not spread the wealth and make Ukrainians feel better about themselves. As we see, best intentions do lead to hell.

So why did the myth that Kiev is ‘the Mother of all Russian cities’ appear, and how did it gain traction? My theory is that the Russian Orthodox church played a role here, as Kiev is the seat of the very important orthodox Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra monastery built about 700-800 years ago. Perhaps the myth of the Kiev as the mother of all Russian cities was necessary to raise the importance of the church. It’s interesting to note that in later years Moscow was referred to as the ‘Mother City,’ in my opinion because this is where the Orthodox headquarters moved around 14-15th century. So, it’s very possible that the title of the ‘Mother City’ was simply given to any city that played a role of the Orthodox Christianity’s headquarters of the Russian realm at any given moment, but later the real meaning was forgotten or deliberately distorted. This is the most logical explanation, however, sadly humans tend to lose the historic chain of events and reasoning. Of course, a large role here played the fact that so many Russian chronicles  that could have confirmed this, were destroyed.

The ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russia’ theory doesn’t hold water however you look at it, and it is obviously politically motivated.

Either way, this is a myth that unfortunately became so pervasive that it infected the psyche of Ukrainians with jealousy and resentment towards Moscow and Russia. How come, say Ukrainians, WE are the most important, WE were the true beginning of the Russian civilization, and meanwhile Moscow gets credit for everything? OUR Ukrainian language was the mother tongue (not true), while Russian had been the derivative; so how dare Russian claims the status of one of the great languages, and Ukrainian doesn’t!

In reality, the modern Ukrainian language is in large part an artificially created language with the kind help of the above-mentioned Polish intellectuals. It is also a mixed language, with lots of words borrowed from Polish, Hungarian, Latin, and other languages, after years as part of different countries and as a deliberate attempt to distance Ukrainian from Russian.

Related complaint from Ukraine: how come Moscow/Russia are doing so well, and we are not?

Add to that twisted historic resentment this, more recent envy: how come Russia has all the resources, such as oil, gas and huge territory, and we only have coal? The fact that Russia always shared all her resources more than generously, the fact that Ukraine always paid a highly discounted price for gas and oil, that Russia subsidised and supported Ukrainian economy… matters not.

This, in short, is the sad story of the anti-Russian hatred in Ukraine and its falsified history.

Of course, there are normal people in Ukraine as well, but they are being intimidated, suppressed and silenced. For example, Ukraine has just had the premature elections into Rada. Due to intimidation, threats and open persecution by the government and ukro-fascist mobs, the only candidates able to run are all shades of fascists and the ultra-right. The centrist Party of the Regions candidates could only run if they changed colors, and even then, they probably would be thrown out because of the new ‘Lustration law,’ which is somewhere between the McCarthyism/the 1950s US Witch Hunts and Hitler’s Final Solution.

Meanwhile, all left parties have been banished from the Rada. Communist party members were beaten in the Rada and their parliament faction was disbanded for trying to draw attention to the plight of the peaceful population in Donbass. The members of the Communist Rada faction are in hiding because many of their houses were burned down and families physically threatened. The Progressive Socialist Party also is practically in hiding – I mentioned the head of this party, Natalia Vitrenko, above. She says that she has been completely shut off from any media and the only means she has left of delivering her message is YouTube. All this because she tells the truth. Video in which angry mob in Kiev dumps a Rada deputy in a dumpster and threatens to set him on fire. Another video in which angry ukro-nazis are demolishing a monument to Lenin, whom they should in fact admire as the Father of their nation (this video is by a German citizen who speaks Russian).

However, what is happening in Ukraine today, just like any violent aggression and suppression, can’t last forever. We are living through a revolutionary period when truth is bound to come out everywhere. Every suppressed truth will be breaking through the layers of lies and illusion throughout this decade. Truth will be blooming and illuminating the world with a vengeance after the many years of obscurity. Don’t be afraid of this light – embrace it!

Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs?

I found this question by a follower to be very interesting and decided to respond in detail.

Avimun 4h

“Thank you for the answer about impatience. I have another vital question, that you maybe prefer to write/explain about in a separate article. Are Russian culture associated with Scandinavian culture? All Scandinavians originate from Finland. Now I read that Scandinavians are Slavs on this link http://www.iahushua.com/JQ/factsR3.html.

#A small Slavic state was organized in 820 A.D. on the south shore of the Gulf of Finland where it flows into the Baltic Sea. This small state was organized by a small group of Varangians from the Scandinavian peninsula on the opposite shore of the Baltic Sea. The native population of this newly formed state consisted of nomad Slavs who had made their home in this area from earliest recorded history.# Has this relation effect in today situation?”

Lada’s response:

Yes, Scandinavians are Slavs or Rus, if you prefer, and have a very ancient history together with the rest of Slavs. Another technical term for this ancient culture is Slavyano-Arians, Russia being the most prominent and best-preserved representative of this massive culture.

The ‘Varangians’ are called Varyags in Russian. They are basically nomadic Baltic Slavs. Everyone in Russia knows this old song: “Vragu ne sdaetsia nash slavny Varyag”: “Our slavny (glorious) Varyag doesn’t surrender.”

The history of Slavs (and Scandinavians) is certainly much longer than a mere 1000 years. The official Russian calendar was westernized by Peter I (the Great) in 1700. While I believe that Peter did do some useful things during his reign, the calendar conversion was probably a huge mistake. The calendar change was supposed to create a better environment for easier trade and integration with Europe. In retrospect, I don’t know if this was such a good idea. Again, Russia had to play out her karmic role of the global balancer, and perhaps that was a part of it (see Predictions for more). However in the final analysis, it created a massive identity confusion that perpetuated for over three centuries, stole at least 5,000 plus years of Russian, and generally Slavic, history, and created fertile ground for the massive re-write and falsification of the global history. Without that event, the history of the 20th century and today’s world may have looked very differently.

Before this happened, there was a very different Russian calendar, presently used only by the Starovery (old believers) and preserved on monuments and ancient churches in Russia and other Slavic countries, such as Serbia. According to this calendar, today would be the year 7,522 from the ‘creation of the peace treaty signed in the Star Temple with the Dragon,’ meaning with China. Obviously there was also plenty of history before that event.

Therefore, world history was falsified to such a degree that white has been turned black and vice versa.

In fact, most of the population of Europe was Slavic/Rus. If you look at the Scandinavians and Russians, you’ll see how similar they usually look (light skin, hair and eyes, similar body type – oftentimes tall, broad-shouldered, muscular males, and tall females with pretty features).

But at one point starting about 1000 years ago, and even more so in the 17th century, Europe splintered into many small states. The reason was that local lords of those days wanted to assert their independence based on their own lust for power. The Vatican and religion played a very prominent role in this struggle for power as well. The further from the center was the location, the more likely it was to splinter off.

This same thing is happening in today’s Ukraine: denying their common origin with Russians and attempting to invent the ancient Ukrs from whom they supposedly descended, saying that Ukrainian language is unrelated to Russian, while actually speaking Russian. Some of the Ukrainian pearls: Adam and Eve were ancient Ukrs; Jesus was Ukrainian, etc.

To assert their local power Ukraine oligarchs and politicians needed to create a history that was very different from the common history with Russia. Something similar happened in Europe 1000-300 years ago, albeit on a much grander scale. This also concerns Italy and Germany, as well as many other countries.

Linguistics, archeology, mathematics, as well as genetics, are those sciences that can reveal the truth no matter how much it’s been hidden. Among many other things, I am a linguist as you may know; therefore, I use the wonderful science of linguistics to reveal the truth.

Since I was a child I put the 2 and 2 together such as: Scandinavian god of all (in other words, the One) is called Odin. I bet no Scandinavian knows the real origin of this word. The reason is simple – the moment it has to be admitted that it’s a Russian word, you have too many unpleasant questions to answer.

In fact: ‘odin’ means ‘one’ in Russian.

Another interesting bit. Everyone knows the word Azgard thanks to the beautiful film “Thor.”

thor

Chris Hemsworth as Thor

rus bogatyr

Russian Vityaz – Bogatyr (mystical strongman, warrior, protector).

rus bogatyr 2

The legendary medieval Russian Bogatyr & protector Ilya Murometz (a real historic figure, often depicted with his companion protectors: Dobrynia Nikitich and Alyosha Popovich)

The chosen Bogatyr’s (the enlightened warrior-protectors) and their highest level, called Vityaz’s, were real warriors charged with protecting Rus (Russia) – their Motherland. They were said to possess immense mystical powers that terrified the enemy, allowing a few of them to successfully deflect the overwhelming attacks of many.

And this is a link to the old Russian fairytale film Sadko(with English subs). Check out what Sadko looks like at 2:50. (Film adaptation of the Russian Opera, “Sadko”, by Rimsky-Korsakov, based on Russian folklore. A beautiful recreation of the medieval city, the Holy Novgorod.)

Azgard is a Scandinavian word, right? If it is, can you dissect this word to show how it was created? If you know ANCIENT RUSSIAN, you can. Azgard means ‘I guard’ in ancient Russian. Another way of saying this is ‘The One Guard,’ (which later became ‘vanguard’) or ‘The One Community (city).’ ‘Az’ means ‘I’ in ancient Russian. It is also the first letter of the ancient Russian alphabet. Therefore, the god Odin – the One, is also Az – first letter. ‘Gard’ means ‘guard’ but it’s a later meaning. The original Slavyano-Arian mother language meaning of this word was much more all-encompassing and signified ‘living together, unified on Mother Earth.’

Another word known to some: ‘Midgard’ was the original name given by Slavs to their Mother Earth eons ago, when they first arrived to Earth. Midgard = Mother Earth.

Remember Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings? He talks about defending ‘the Middle Earth.’ This in fact is a direct translation of ‘Midgard.’ Tolkien was a linguist and very good at history. This information was hidden from the masses but apparently available to those who knew where to look. Remember ‘The White City’ from Lord of the Rings so beautifully depicted in the movie? The White City is written from Moscow and Novgorod. Take a look again at the beginning of the film Sadko above. The ancient Novgorod is on it – here is your ‘White City.’

What is ‘Prussia’? A part of Germany? In fact it’s ‘Po-Russia’ or ‘Pole-Russia.’ Meaning ‘flat Russia,’ ‘Russia in the fields.’

Scandinavian Runes: in Russian ‘rune’ is ‘runa.’ Compare these words: Ru-na – Ru-s. Runa is composed of Ru + una. Una means undivided, or again ‘one.’ Russian word for ‘she’ is ‘ona.’ Compare ‘ona’ and ‘una.’

In English ‘ona’ – she (for female) and ‘on’ – he (for male) becomes ‘one.’

People of many parts of Europe spoke the same language, or very similar dialects. Basically, they spoke ancient Russian. As differences, barriers, power lust and greed grew, language differences grew as well. It was necessary to divide people so they would forget their brotherly ties, so they would think they were different. Differences breed distrust and suspicion in un-evolved humans; and it’s so much easier to rule and manipulate those who are divided.

Russian scientists believe that plague and scurvy that overtook Europe in medieval times, but didn’t touch Russia, caused languages to separate completely. People who had suffered from these illnesses lost teeth, had bleeding gums, swollen tongues, and all that affected greatly their ability to speak.

It has to be noted that Germanic languages spoken in parts of Scandinavia, Germany and most of the northern Europe are a part of what we call the Indo-European family of languages. English is also a Germanic language. Slavic languages are classified as one of the Indo-European groups as well. However, Finnish language spoken in Finland belongs to the different Finno-Ugric family of languages. This is the traditional classification. However, the time will come when old classifications will be thrown out as people re-discover their true history. At that point the old brotherly ties between those people who had been artificially separated, will re-emerge. It won’t happen tomorrow, but it will happen.

By the way, all the above explains best the un-dying animosity towards Russia by the West. The powers that be either know the true history and are afraid it will come out, or they feel it subconsciously. Certainly the Vatican has enough documents hidden – they were some of the main instigators of the massive re-writing of history in the 17th century.

The pathological fear of Russia is also well-explained by the above theory.

Generally, we are all sitting on false history. Going back to what I said before, until humans learn their true history, until we make peace with the past, we cannot move into the future. This is one of the main reasons we are stuck. But people in the West stubbornly refuse to open their minds, preferring to hold on to the old image of their enemy. The enemy meanwhile, is their own prejudices and fears, as well as all those who manipulate them.

Russian scientists have made some very profound discoveries that are pretty mind-boggling. I have lots more material about that. To be honest, I’ve been hesitant to talk as this is a very convoluted and controversial story. I can see certain people not taking it the right way. But if enough of my readers are truly interested, I will put together a report. I need to know if there is enough interest to warrant my work, so please leave comments if you want to hear more!

********

Added 7/9/2016:

I see that there are lots of guesses and interpretations floating around in regards to the etymology of the words Bogatyr and Vityaz, most of them entirely incorrect. I get regularly asked by my followers to explain the real origin and underlying meaning of these talking words, which happen to reflect directly the true nature of those who were awarded these honorable ancient designations.

I promise that I’ll eventually get around to explaining them fully. In this case the context is very important and has to be taken into account while doing so. Therefore, the best format will be one of my future Earth Shift Reports and/or one of my future books. If you haven’t yet, do check out the EARTH SHIFT REPORT page on LadaRay.info.

New Earth Shift Reports are now available. Some of them center around the situation in Ukraine. Among other things, these reports address the roots of Russophobia in Ukraine, a topic closely related to the above article. It is interesting how the lowly emotions – primarily fear and greed – cause humans to forget their roots and sacrifice honor and truth, thus tainting soul and creating unresolved karma.

(Incidentally, I mention Bogatyr’s in my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER.)

Khazarian Mysteries: What do Russian, Polish, Kossack, Jewish, English and Asian Names Have in Common?

Dear readers, this is the last post of the 3 I promised today. I’m practically on vacation mode and I’ll see you all again next week. Please read, like and share all three of these new posts! Don’t overlook any! This article is of a lighter tone than the other two. See Post 1 and Post 2.

Mysteries of Linguistics: What do Russian, Polish, Serb, Kossack, Jewish, English, Italian and Asian names have in common?

Below is a quote from a comment by a reader. As you know, I love getting comments from you. FuturisTrendcast is dedicated to spreading and uncovering the truth, dispelling lies, illusions, confusions, and disinfo. I do this to educate people. Since many from all over the world read my articles, as well as comments, I usually post reader comments that are in line with this mission. To make sure your comment is posted, please always write what you know to be true and helpful to others. Writing from the heart helps.

Russian, Serbian and Bulgarian surnames usually end with -ev/-ov (e.g: Vorobjov, though there are some Middle-Asian surnames ending with -ev/-ov as well, they are distinguishable if the root of a name is typical Asian)
Surnames ending with -in, -vich, -man, skij/-sky have Jewish connotation (Abramovich, Berezovskij, Waltsman, Zvezdin)
Surnames ending with -ko are typical of Ukraine and Belarus.
During Stalin persecution of Jews in 1930-s, many ethnic Jews married Russians and adopted Russian names to avoid persecution, some are doing it now for political reasons (Poroshenko, who is Valtsman, Turchinov, who is Cogan)
In any case, it is difficult to say if someone is Russian by surname only.
If you speak Russian, have a feel of belonging to Russia, can find a common mood with Russians, people will see you as “ours”, even if your surname is Smith. 🙂

  • Hi, Nemo. You’re correct about the fact that Russians will accept anyone who identifies with the Russian culture and respects it as their own. Hence, the names are secondary to Russians. There are lots of Ukrainians, Armenians, Balts, Germans, Georgians, and even Africans, occupying high positions in Russia.
    You’re also correct about Poroshenko and Turchinov’s real names and the reason they changed them to sound Ukrainian.

    Stalin’s repressions and changing names

    Also true: people did change their names through marriage during Stalin’s repressions. However, they didn’t do so because they were Jewish, but rather to avoid association with the family name that had been repressed, regardless of the name origin. For example, my best friend’s grandmother’s family name was Ramzin – a perfectly Russian name (with Turkic roots to be sure). Ramzin was one of the famous oppositioners to Stalin, who was repressed in the 1930s. She married a Jew named Bronfman and became Natalia Ivanovna (a perfectly Russian name) Bronfman (typical Jewish). Of course when we grew up, my friend expressed regret that his grandma didn’t retain her pretty famous in Russia family name. In that case, he used to say longingly, I’d be a Ramzin. He loved telling this story to illustrate that there was no antisemitism in the USSR in the 1930s. Antisemitic problems started in Russia in late 1940s-1950s. Why – that’s a different story.

    As to the rest, you are incorrect. I want to keep your comment for the sake of all of my readers, so they could see your point of view. However, I have to correct you.

    Ancient ending ‘ov’ and its meaning

    Ending ‘ov’ (‘ev’ is just a variation) is the ancient Rus ending. Bulgarian names are of the same origin, hence the same kind of ending. You and others can read my article Words, Spells and Linguistical Traps talking about that under the category Mysteries of Linguistics.

    The ending ‘ov’ simply means ‘of’ = ‘belonging to.’ This could be a son of, or belonging to a family, clan, or location. English ‘of’ IS the Russian ‘ov.’ This is one of the original ancient Rus roots. For example, Bolotov, Elfimov, Rosanov, Brezhnev, Gorbachev.

    Asian – primarily Muslim – sounding names in Central Asia and Caucasus have the ‘ov’ ending because these are names that have been russified later, during the centuries of these territories being a part of the Russian world. There is no mystery there, just need to have a correct historic perspective.

    As to the names ending in ‘in,’ ‘vich,’ ‘sky,’ etc., your statement is unfortunately untrue. I would appreciate everyone on this forum not repeating things that have no scientific or logical basis, and smack of antisemitism. Antisemitism is as bad as rusophobia. I am sure you meant nothing of the sort, but whoever released this hoax first, did (I’ve seen this floating around the net). Such erroneous ‘scientific conclusion’ lacks the elementary understanding of history and language.

    Ending ‘in’ throughout the world, and its meaning

    In reality: ending ‘in’ is one of the most ancient endings, which can be seen throughout the world in colorful variations. It is so ancient that it predates by far any modern language. Its origins are those of our common Earthly mother tongue. Ending ‘in’ means the same as ‘ov’ – that you belong to something or someone, or are a derivative of something. If you are a son of, or are of a specific tribe or location – you are a derivative of that location, or of that father. Another way of saying this is: you are the in-sider of that family or tribe.

    It is used in the ancient Russian names such as Putin, Kalinin, Ramzin. And yes, Rasputin, too.

    ‘In’ becomes “ing,’ ‘en,’ ‘y’ or even ‘on’ in English, as in Pickering, Dowdy, Lynden, or Clinton (in the olden days it sounded more like ‘Clinten’ or ‘Clintin’); in Germanic languages it becomes ‘ung;’ in Italian it becomes ‘i,’ as in Pallini; in France or Spain it may become ‘ion’ as in Collinion; and in Asia it can be seen in many countries, becoming ‘ing,’ ‘ang,’ or ‘en,’ as in Nguen (Vietnamese).

    Which ‘vich,’ and do you want to know Lada’s full name?

    Ending “vich’ can be used as ‘ovich,’ ‘vich,’ or ‘ich.’ Russian ‘ovich’ is in reality a composite of two suffixes/endings: ‘ov’ and ‘ich.’ ‘Vich’ (or rather ‘ich’ spelled ‘ic’ – ‘c’ in Slavic languages is often historically pronounced as ‘ch’) is of the very ancient Rus/Slavic origin and is used in Yugoslavian (Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian, etc.) names. Means the same exact thing as above: ‘son of,’ = derivative of. ‘Vich’ or ‘ich’ is common to Southern and Eastern Slavs. All of former Yugoslavia (Southern Slavs) uses this ending for their last names. ALL Eastern Slavs (Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians) use it with EVERY name as well, but differently. In Russia it’s used as a patronymic, not as a traditional last name. Example: Viktor Ivanovich Kuleshov. Or Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. ‘Vladimirovich’ and other patronymics, always used with all FULL Eastern Slavic names and all names on the territory of the Former Soviet Union, including Central Asia, Ukraine, Moldova, Caucasus, mean: son of Vladimir, or… fill in the blank with any other name.

    For women: ‘Vladimirovna’ means ‘daughter of.’ Lada is the daugther of Vladimir = Lada Vladimirovna. That’s the truth, actually – I am. 😉 Full names are used in passports, official documents and as a respectful address. 

    Incidentally, you are also wrong about Serbs using ‘ov’ in their last names – they use ‘ich.’ All inhabitants of the former Yugoslavia, including Serbia, Chernogoria, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia normally have last names ending in ‘ich.’ Some Belorussians have such last names as well.

    Bulgarians, on the other hand, have last names ending in ‘ov,’ or ‘ev,’ like Russians. This indicates that Bulgarians have separated from Russians very recently, much more recently than is commonly described in traditional history books. This is to the issue of the distortions of history: this separation is no more than a few centuries old. I suspect, it dates back to as late as 17th century as that’s when massive re-writing of history occurred. In the ancient Russian bylini – chronicles – Russian bogatyrs (knights, heroes, protectors) had last names ending in ‘ovich.’

    The well-known painting below by Victor Vasnetsov (1898) ‘Tri Bogatyria’ – ‘The Three Bogatyrs’ depicts the famous historic bogatyrs and heroes of ancient bylini: Ilya Moromets, Dobrynia Nikitich and Alyosha Popovich.

    Tri Bogatiria

    Ending ‘ov’ is a more recent ending. Sometimes ‘ich’ was cut off from ‘ovich,’ forming a shorter name. As a result, Popovich could become Popov.

    The fun part: Did you know that English word ‘which,’  is in fact ‘vich’ …well, with English accent. That is because it comes from the same root. ‘Which’ means exactly the same as ‘vich’: ‘belonging to what or whom,’ as in: Which book do you want? Which of these towns are you from? Which lord’s son are you?

    Ending ‘sky’

    A lot of what I said above applies to the ending ‘sky.’ It means ‘from’ or ‘of.’ This ending was used primarily by Poles, and by Russians. Belorussky means from Belarus. Moskovsky means from Moscow.

    ‘Sky’ can denote noble origin, as in the famous Russian princes: Prince Volkonsky and Prince Obolensky. Prince Obolensky happens to be the true historic name of one of the main characters of Gold Train (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure).

    Kossacks and the ending ‘ko’

    As to the ending ‘ko,’ it indeed denotes Ukrainian origin, sometimes Belorussian as well. But in reality, this ending is a Kossack ending. ‘Cossack’ is normally spelled with a ‘c’ in English. But leaving aside the fact that ‘c’ is simply wrong here, I also want to make a point by spelling it with its authentic ‘k.’ You’ll see the point below.

    Kossacks everywhere, including in the Russian Urals and Siberia (very far from Ukraine), have names ending in ‘ko.’ Therefore, this ending is not Ukrainian; it is Kossack. Kossack history is very interesting and complicated. I will discuss it in a dedicated article soon. Until then, just this: because so many Kossacks settled in what is now Ukraine, their typical name ending became eventually fashionable with Ukrainians, and Ukrainian names more and more began ending in ‘ko’ as in Volochko, Shevchenko, Pestushko.

    But here is the clincher: ‘ko’ was initially ‘kov’ – here is this ‘ov’ again! During a couple of last centuries, ‘v’ was gradually dropped. ‘Kov’ is a variation of ‘ov,’ as in Volochkov, Naboykov, Pestushkov, Shevchenkov, Kochetkov. Usually, names ending in ‘kov,’ as well as ‘ko’ are of Kossack origin. ‘Kov’ is diminutive compared to ‘ov.’ As in ‘of lesser importance.’

    Nobles had names ending only in ‘ov,’ never ‘kov’ or ‘ko.’ Examples: Countess Rosanov(a) – the name of the main character of Gold Train (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure). Or Elfimov – family name of the main character of The Earth Shifter.

    On another note: 

    Prussian names end in ‘ov,’ denoting their ancient Russian origin, as in the fashionable towns near Berlin: Beeskov and Bukov, where my German friends reside. P-russia of course was Po-russia (flat Russia) well before it became German. Not to get off topic, but look at the name of the capital of Germany: Berlin. Ber – bear (a Russian symbol no less) with the ending ‘in’ = belonging to the bear, ‘of the bear.’ How interesting. More about that in: Words, Spells and Linguistical Traps.

    The Jewish names and Polish pani

    What ending Jewish names received depended of what geographic area within Slavic (and before that, ancient Rus) world they had originated from – where they lived for centuries. Oftentimes, Jews, like peasants living on the territory of a certain lord in Ukraine (today’s territory of Ukraine is where most Jews traditionally settled), would oftentimes be referred to by that lord’s last name. ‘Sky’ means ‘belonging to,’ so these Ukrainian peasants, or local Jews, belonged to, or were subordinate to, say, pan Vishnevetsky, or another similar pan (lord). Apparently, there was a “pan Kolomoysky” at one point, resulting in the last name of the infamous Jewish-Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoysky, who is trying to create a fiefdom out of the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk, and who has a lot of blood on his hands.

    ‘Sky’ was popular in Ukraine as most lords (or ‘pani’ in Polish) were of Polish origin. In Polish ‘sky’ is spelled as ‘ski.’ Vishnevetski, Pilsudski – Pilsudsky, Sikorski – Sirkosky, like the inventor of the helicopter Igor Sikorsky.

    The Khazarian mystery

    To wrap this up, I’ll just drop another historical bomb. Many people know that the ethnic origin of the Eastern European Jews is primarily Khazarian, or non-Semitic. Ancient Khazarians were the population of the south Russian, and what is now Ukraine and Novorossia, stepps. Khazarian history is very complicated, but I’ll just say that they were a part of the Rus heritage, albeit its southern manifestation. Because of the many malicious and ignorant re-writings of history, some links are lost. However, the ancient Skiffs (Scythians) and Khazars are parts of the same massive Arian Eurasian Rus culture.

    But here is my bomb: Kossacks are the heirs of Khazarians (note how similar these two words are in Russian: Kazak and Khazar). As we established previously, so are most Jews on the planet. As Kossacks are quite the opposite of the Jews in so many ways, it’s interesting how this happened. But that’s the story for another article. Stay tuned!

    That’s it for today’s journey into the mysteries of language and history. For more on this, please follow my future posts and special reports in which I will peel off more truths.

    P.S. A bit more clarification to answer some reader questions: 

    Although presently the Russian word for bear is ‘medved’: literally “the one who knows about honey,” the ancient Rus/mother tongue for bear was ‘ber’ – hence the Russian word for bear den: ‘ber-loga.’ ‘Ber’ is one of the most ancient words.

    ‘Log’ is another mother tongue root and it is visible in many languages. ‘Log’ means anything to do with being horizontal or settled. Like ‘lodging’ in English or ‘logovo’ in Russian: cave, underground dwelling, hiding place. Russian ‘log’ means a trunk of wood – obviously a horizontals item, when layed down or set as part of the wall of a dwelling. English word ‘long’ also comes from this root. Russian ‘lozhitsia’ – ‘to lie down’ is obvious too.

    Berlin: from ‘ber’ + ”log’ + ‘in.” Literally means ‘in the bear den.’ Incidentally, the capital of Switzerland is called ‘Bern.’

Words, Spells and Linguistical Traps

Video call snapshot 78By Lada Ray, M.A.: comparative linguistics and history of languages

This post is about the fascinating world of linguistics and how language can help us uncover the truth… or spin a lie, thus shrouding the truth and creating a far-reaching confusion, depending on the intention of its user. What we will talk about is very timely for this revolutionary decade when old distortions are poised to be revealed.

I love getting interesting and thought-provoking comments from my readers. Here is one of them!

In response to my recent article Truth, Lie and Propaganda. An Appeal to the American People from a Ukrainian, JR said: “The Russian people speak from the truth in their hearts, and from a genuine compassion and love for the brotherhood of all peoples of all countries. How can one not be aware of the sincerity and honesty even while listening to what we in the US would call a foreign language ? Thank you for sharing his stirring message — one that leaves me so profoundly ashamed of the depths to which this once “great” nation has fallen. The so-called US gov’t., now the throne/stronghold of the most evil and corrupt power in the world, is seated in that tiny 10 sq. mile pentagram in Wash. DC. Yes, we are under a spell, and it has been shown that even our English language is a language full of spells — just what is a “spelling” test, or a “spelling” bee (does someone get stung??) ?? There’s dark magic holding us hostage, and keeping us prisoners in our own minds by the spells they weave using propaganda, lies and deceit, and all the tricks of their trade. Yes, many are breaking out of that death grip, but at the same time it seems that for every one freed, many others must pay the ever escalating price to keep the devouring darkness well fed. Looking at the videos of Donetsk and eastern Ukraine atrocities, I see a fast-forward of what’s planned for us here in the US. We have been warned by the “‘prophets” in the past, and now we are being warned by the victims of our future.”

I thought this was a wonderful and thought-provoking comment. And another thing that I appreciated as a linguist was the apt linguistical parallel. I replied: ““Spelling” = under a spell. Good one – and that’s coming from a linguist.”

In response, JR posted new comment: “Here is something else to add to your oddities/absurdities (nevertheless true) info as a linguist: The word Parliament means “Speaking Lies” from the French words Parler which means to speak, and mentir which means to tell lies. Also the word Politics, poly meaning many; tics are blood-sucking parasites; thus politics means many blood-sucking parasites. This is taken from a post re the “Queen of England” proven not a lawfully coronated monarch. More spells cast over the people.” See comments.

I thought this new comment was cute the way JR drew comparisons between lies and “parliament”; however, I also saw that all these interesting “discoveries” required a major clarification.

First, a little back story:

The earthly languages form and develop according to certain rules. They are often not quite tangible rules; sometimes I would call them divine laws, or the laws closely related to sacred geometry. Here is my personal opinion based on my lifelong contemplation of life and languages: another law that applies to language is the Lorenz Butterfly, also known as the Chaos Theory, which postulates that from the seeming confusion and chaos on a small scale the orderly big picture can be predicted (albeit, depending on random developments, such prediction may be difficult). For instance, if we draw a diagram of many chaotic and seemingly random hurricanes taking place around the globe at the same time, we will get a very orderly sign of infinity, which is called the Lorenz Butterfly, also known as the “butterfly effect.”

How is all this related to language you ask? I will try to explain.

My response

Thanks for the comments, JR. I agree wholeheartedly that both politics and parliaments in the modern world are being misused by the elites presently in power. Some humans tend to abuse power they are entrusted with. This has long been the case in our earthly 3D reality – the reality which many of us, in our own special ways, are working hard on shifting into the new, much higher level. However, we must always remember that there is a difference between the initial idea and later implementation of said idea, between the word and the later distortion of that word’s meaning.

A great example of how this works is religion – any religion. Take Christianity for instance: Jesus spoke of peace, love and forgiveness. But look into what humans, in their thirst for control over others, have turned his teaching! How many wars and how much hatred took place in the name of “Jesus”?

The initial ideas behind the words parliament and politics weren’t negative at all. These words in fact were created as progressive, and even revolutionary, for their day.

A word about how linguistics works: the language evolution follows certain laws, which linguists study. Those who are in the linguistics field also tend to have heightened intuition about the language truth. Just because a word seems similar, doesn’t mean it is related to another coincidentally similar word. On the other hand, some words that don’t seem as similar to a layman’s ear, come from the same root.

Sometimes the word with the opposite meaning comes from the same core root. A good example of that is “rose” vs. “rude” or “crude” – all three come from the same root! As a matter for fact, the root “ros,” “rus” or “ru” is so important in human development that I will have a whole article dedicated to that soon. Stay tuned!

This is how language develops – words and their meanings shift. Substitutions of sounds, spelling and meaning happen depending on the tragedies, confusions and triumphs any given culture experiences throughout its history. And yes, as always there are malicious manipulations and deliberate substitutions based on ulterior motives, too. Much of the manipulations that were safely hidden away, are coming to the surface as more and more discoveries are made based on new revolutionary methods.

Russian linguistics school was always superb and I am happy that I had the opportunity to study under its wing. It taught me to think and see the hidden connections between words; it showed me the way to uncover the hidden and distorted truths. But of course, I had this talent since I was young.

Russian mathematicians, astronomers/physicists have been famous throughout the 20th century. It is on the cross-section of these three sciences that many new discoveries are being made. These discoveries are so earth-shattering that very soon the history of the entire planet will simply have to be re-written.

I promised that I would start talking about all that soon, and I will. Today, I want to give a primer demonstrating how language works, and how it doesn’t; how important language is to preserve our history in order to avoid past mistakes; how important the language is in uncovering the truth. Let’s consider it a sneak peek into the big adventure still to come.

JR, let’s review the etymology (origins) of the words you mentioned in your comments.

Spell and spelling: These two words come from the same root “sp” or “spr.” It is the same root as in the word “speak.” In German: “sprechen.” The root of this word, as explained by the English sources, is old Norse: from spraki – rumor or report. As we know, English language belongs to the Germanic group of languages, although the past relations among language groups and families are also being shattered as new discoveries by the Russian scientists are being revealed.

For more insight into how languages work and interact, read my popular article on Lada Ray Blog: Best Way to Learn Russian Language.

If I dig deeper with the root “sp,” I will get to the ancient origins of the mother language predating Germanic cultures. The root “sp” is much older than any language groups recognized today. It is one of the original mother-tongue roots – what we used to call Indo-European, and what I would now call more correctly the Vedic Rus mother-tongue.

The root “sp” can be seen in ancient Russian and Ukrainian words, such as: Rus: spet’ – to sing, ” Ukr: spivati – to sing, Ukr: spilkuvatisia – to socialize. Here is a very telling word: Rus/Ukr and many other Slavic languages: ispoved’ – sermon or atoning. And of course, the Russian word everyone knows: Spasibo – “thank you” – which means extending gratitude through voice. Couldn’t be any more clear, could it?

So, the mother-root “sp” signifies joining, connecting, socializing, usually via one’s voice, in other words, via communication.

The word spill in English comes from the same root, and this is an indication of how bizarrely languages work sometimes. What is the logic here? Spill means getting out of own boundaries and again making a connection with a different entity – sort of communicating with another surface. That’s what happens in a water, or oil, spill. However, the original meaning of spill was language related, as in: “spilling the beans,” which means “blabbing it out or betraying a secret.”

Another interesting word is cooperation. Recognize the same root “sp?” Coop = “sp.” This is a Latin influence. In Latin “s” became “c.” “Sp” becomes “cp” and then “coop.”

The connections between languages and words are fascinating and educational. Since I was a child, I contemplated these connections, which taught me that people are much more similar than they are different, no matter how much various interests with ulterior motives are trying to convince us otherwise. I intend to write much more about this, but that will be another time.

For now, I think I’ve made my point: “sp” means to connect, commune; “el” means god or divine. Consequently, the original meaning of a spell is: to “connect with the divine” and by extention, to “voice an intention.” Of course the contemporary meaning of  a “spell” is broader. It is a spoken incantation to actualize an intention, sometimes to deceive or confuse others, but sometimes to empower self – it all depends on who and with what motives is doing it. Spelling means: “voicing – or actualizing – the written word.”

But what an irony! As JR correctly noticed, a spell, meant to actualize, or clarify things, is often used to manipulate and confuse. And spelling is derived directly from spell.  So, when I applaud JR’s parallel between spell and spelling, I am referring to the fact that I appreciate as a linguist his ability to see the hidden ironic connection between the two.

Now let’s proceed to the other two words. These two are a different story altogether as the examples from the article JR quotes, unfortunately are incorrect translations, even if they may seem valid on the surface. Here, much later derivatives or coincidental words are being substituted by the author of the article quoted.

In my earlier comments to this same post I already cautioned someone else to avoid falling for pseudo-truths. Not all alternative sources are created equal and not all tell the truth, either because of ignorance, or hidden agenda – or both.

Let’s try not to twist or stretch the truth, even if we have the best intentions, shall we? Because the truth has this interesting quality – eventually, everything comes out anyway. That’s why truth is always the best policy.

I can tell you as a trained comparative linguist and language historian what the real meaning of these words is:

Parliament is from parler (to speak) + ment (mind). (Incidentally, the word mentir also comes from ment and means “inventing things with your mind’, or, “irritating mind by misusing it”).

So, parliament is translated as the place where people speak their minds. And that was the original intention behind parliaments. At the time, Western-style democracy was a progressive thing and it was necessary to hear different opinions when they all were valid in some way. It is now that the Western-style democracy turned into its opposite.

Politics is from Greek politicos, meaning: “related to citizens or affairs of a city” (polis – city, polites – citizens). It has nothing to do with “tics” of course — “cs”  or “s” is a common English ending for Greek-related words, shortened from the common Greek ending “os.” “Os” also has much deeper Vedic Rus roots, demonstrated in Russian last names: Volkov, Elfimov, Yablokov. “Ov” = “os.”

Further, the ORIGINAL root of the word “Polis” is the ancient Vedic Rus (later Slavic) word: “Polie.” Polie is a field or flat surface. It originates from the Rus “po” – flat, on top, along a flat surface. Example: “idti po ulitse” – “to walk along the street.”

Here are some examples of this ancient root in action: Prussia – original meaning: Po-Russia, in other words, flat or wide Russia. Later Prussia was taken over by Germans and that’s how Prussia became German, but originally it was Po-Russia. The country next to Prussia is called Poland, in Polish: Polonia. This name comes from “polie” – literally: the flat country. And believe me, Poland is really flat.

From “Polie” the ancient Greek word “polis” = city, was formed. It meant flat surface, populated with people. The “people,” or “citizens,” meaning was added later. Initially, polites meant those people who lived in flatlands, which eventually were built into cities. The word “poly” came to signify “many” much, much later. It is a modern-day derivative from “polis,” which is logical as it signified a city populated by many citizens. There was no word “poly” with today’s meaning in Ancient Greek. This is one of the manipulated subsequent additions into the language.

P.S. A reader has suggested that the word religion = re-ligion has something to do with “military rebuilding” as in re-legion (meaning military legion.) This is an exellent example of a confusion that I have talked about in the beginning.

In reality: the root “log” = “lg” means “word” in Vedic mother-tongue, and later in Latin (logos), and it has nothing to do with war. The word “legitimate” “legislature” and “library” come from the same root. Later, the word “legion” was also derived from the same root – not from war, but from “law and order.” “Logos” – “legis” – “legitimate” – “law” = “order” – “legion.” The word “linguistics” also comes from the same root. Russian lozh and English lie – same meaning, same root.

Religion simply means “reciting words” = cermons and prayers.

This is enough linguistics for now.

I hope you enjoyed this article and I hope you learned something today. Even though my time is limited, I try to clarify and explain things as much as I can, and I try to share my knowledge with all. Regrettably, I can’t always do that and many confusions perhaps go unanswered. Sometimes I answer people’s comments in the comment section of my blog. My goal is always to reveal the truth from under the layers of confusion and lies, whether intentional or inadvertent.

In this case, of course the intention of the reader, JR, was high and honest, as much of what he says rings true. Therefore, I thought it was a good idea to clarify as much as possible.

About me: M.A. (summa cum laude) in Comparative Linguistics, Translation and History of languages. I studied at Odessa Mechnikov State University, Moscow Lomonosov State University and Complutense University of Madrid, with graduate study at the Universidad de La Habana, Cuba. Read my bio here.

I see my role as someone who uncovers and reveals deep truths that had been suppressed. My mission is to help people clear the existing fog of confusion and misinformation.

In the upcoming posts I will continue this topic. Stay tuned!
