Armenian Army Demands Pashinyan’s Resignation, but Soros Won’t Release Grip on Armenia (The Ring of Fire Around Russia series!)
THIS POST IS NOW FREE TO PUBLIC on LADA RAY PATREON!
This article is a good example of what I publish on patreon when I talk about current hot world events that I feel deserve my special brand of Multidimensional Earth Shift analysis and predictions! However, LADA RAY PATREON is so much more!
The Armenian tragedy is continuing. The military is now demanding PM Pashinyan’s resignation. The police is with opposition, but security services are with Pashinyan, so far.
This is the capital of Armenia Yerevan
The footage of what’s happening can be gleaned from this Russian program containing the freshest info: ⚡️Ситуация в Армении | Генштаб призвал к отставке Пашиняна | Бывшие. The footage comes from Sputnik Armenia (Sputnik is a Russian news agency).
Pashinyan himself ensured the new escalation. When asked a legitimate question, why Russian Iskander systems were not utilized in the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war which Armenia lost, Pashinyan gave an absurd answer, which enraged everyone: ‘How could we use them, Iskanders are only 10% effective.’ When asked again, does he really think they are only 10% effective, he replied: probably so – they are an old ’80s design, after all. This was meant to be a jab at previous head of Armenia Sargsyan, who purchased the Iskanders and who has been a relentless critic of Pahsinyan and his talentless leadership that lead to the country’s humiliation. In reality, Pashinyan, an ex-journalist for hire by Soros, has no idea what Iskanders can do, nor he cares about the truth, just political gain, as his actions have shown.
The Armenian army chief of staff and other generals immediately came out and ridiculed Pashinyan’s Iskander lies and inept leadership, demanding his and government’s prompt resignation. The opposition, which has been out on streets since last October demanding the same, brought people out again. To counter that, so did Pashinyan, who surprisingly, still has a following. Perhaps the following isn’t very large per se, but it’s very active and those people come out on streets on demand. Pashinyan came to power on the wave of a color revolution in 2018. For him being out on streets is as natural as breathing.
Meantime, Pashinyan tried to dismiss the Armenian army general chief of staff and his deputy. But that unexpectedly hit a snag: when he tired to pressure the president of Armenia to sign off on it, he suddenly dug in, saying that the issue is not simple and he won’t be pressured. The president, who is a figurehead, nevertheless must be the one to formalize the ousting of the military heads. Per info, Pashinyan is also preparing to purge the entire top of the army and fire anyone who is ‘old guard and pro-Russian.’
Please recall our last year’s discussions of the purges Pashinyan orchestrated since 2018 in order to delete anyone who would be pro-Russian and pro-Armenian, resulting in a severe weakening of the army, which lead to catastrophic loss in the NK war. This was exactly why Azerbaijan and Turkey attacked: they knew the army of Armenia was weakened and in disarray.
Therefore, what we have is a standoff, now between Pashinyan and the army chiefs.
At the same time, Russian army issued its own statement. Gen. Gerasimov said diplomatically that ‘Pashinyan was probably misinformed about Iskanders. They’ve been used very successfully in Syria and by professional assessments of the global specialists they are the best system in existence in its class.’ Moreover, said Gerasimov, Russian surveillance indicates that Iskanders were not used at all during NK conflict, therefore, how could Pashinyan possibly possess knowledge of their effectiveness? All Armenia-owned Iskanders remained accounted for in their storage during the duration of the NK war, said Gerasimov, thus confirming ex-president Sargsyan’s accusations.
This is exactly what the opposition is saying: Pashinyan either deliberately or because he’s so inept, or both, misused available weapons and lost the war.
PROTECTORS IN HIGH PLACES
It’s very suspect how much Erdogan and his foreign ministry are defending Pashinyan, supposedly the PM of a country that has been their arch-enemy for at least centuries. As explained, Pashinyan is very convenient for Turkey – and read more on that in my 2020 reports on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and how Russia turned it around!
But Pashinyan’s biggest handlers and protectors are located elsewhere and they work hard to keep him where he is, because Pashinyan has been tasked with delivering Armenia into the clutches of the West.

One thing Hollywood often does right is predict some sort of apocalyptic future. A new Hollywood film from Netflix features Ukraine of 2036 and USA as a war monger, igniting and perpetuating conflict. Best if you watch the trailer (Eng) here: Outside the Wire | Official Trailer | Netflix (film release Jan 15, 2021).
There is also this short vid: OUTSIDE THE WIRE Ending Explained! (may want to check it out for info purposes, but can’t vouch for its quality at all.)
In this short video (Rus), the authors tell the film story and show reactions of some Ukrainians: Голливуд показал жуткое будущее Цеевропы(Hollywood shows the nightmare future of Tseevropa). In this Russian video, a sarcastic name is applied to Ukraine: ‘Tseevropa,’ meaning in Ukrainian ‘Thisiseurope.’ Russians and sane Ukrainians began using this mocking title in terms of today’s Ukraine, based on a phrase coined by the ukro-nazis during the 2014 Maidan, ‘Ukraina tse Evropa,’ to indicate that they are ‘Europe, and not at all like Russia.’
The Outside the Wire story is typical of Hollywood. The war is ongoing for 20 years between two factions in Ukraine, the ‘reds,’ or pro-Russians, and the ‘perfect’ Ukrainians, or ukro-nationalist forces, for some reason called ‘resistance.’ In actuality, it’s the other way around: it is the Donbass people and those who defend their right to speak their native tongue, Russian, who are in the ‘resistance’ to current regime.
While war is going on, it is the US that does everything so the war never ends, sitting behind the fortified walls of their base, while killing people with drones and calling the deaths of civilians ‘collateral damage.’ There are all kinds of robots from Russia and US involved in the conflict.
The Ukraine is shown as a completely failed state: no order, no government, no light in the end of the tunnel.
The main character is an extremely sophisticated android, who is Pentagon’s top secret weapon. At one point even he realizes that the US is fueling the war; he decides that he should destroy himself, as the ultimate weapon and a face of never-ending conflict. He also plans to destroy his ‘maker’ by dropping an old Soviet nuclear missile on Washington.
I don’t know whether I’ll ever watch this movie (probably not), but this is the plot in a nutshell, as I translated it from the above Russian piece.
The reactions of Ukrainians range from “it’s all a US lie and Netflix BS, how could they show us, their ally, this way!” to ‘so that’s what our closest ally and protector, the US, really thinks of us?”
In another film showing Ukraine in an unflattering light, the Kiev Opera theater is used as a stage for the CIA/arms dealers’ interactions. The name of this film is only available in Russian and it’s “Довод”. It should translate as ‘Argument’ or something like ‘Reasoning,’ but I’m sure the name is different – my search didn’t return any results. The film shows all broken down streets in front of the Kiev Opera House, something the Ukrainians have taken quite badly. Actually, the real streets around the Kiev Opera aren’t broken down, as far as I know. They do try to maintain the historic and government center, but they are broken down in most of the rest of Kiev and the country. The reactions of Ukrainians all over the internet have been: it looks like the opinions of Americans about Ukraine have been completely formed, and they are very unflattering. This excessive, compulsive caring about what Americans (and Europeans) think of them is a feature of today’s Ukraine. Also, they still believe that ‘America will save them.’

As part of the Holiday Season 2020-21, I am hosting a new series of 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS!
Reposted from LadaRayPatreon! Original post: NEW WEBINAR SERIES! LADA RAY FUTURE PREDICTIONS for the US, EUROPE & CHINA!
Because of COVID I am not going anywhere for New Year’s and I have an opportunity to do all three live (and recorded) FUTURE PREDICTIONS WEBINARS in December 2020! Or we can do two in December and one in early January 2021, if fewer of you are available at the end of the month. Because of COVID restrictions many of you may be staying home too, and if so, these webinars may become your timely entertainment and an opportunity for an enlightened and forward-looking discussion during the otherwise quiet holiday season!
Participating in my webinars will be time much better spent than watching the dull TV. And it’ll certainly will be the time and money well spent in preparation for the future!
Make no mistake: the future will continue being full of turmoil, uncertainty and fast, often confusing change! It’s much better to meet it forewarned and forearmed!
Just to reiterate, my latest predictions on the US elections again came true! So did the predictions on the outcome of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Karabakh war, Turkey, Russia’s involvement and Putin’s real game. All this was posted for my patrons on LRpatreon between October and November 2020!
Not to mention my predictions for COVID not being nearly as bad or dangerous for people’s health as the official propaganda would tell you. Instead, COVID has decimated global economy and became the catalyst of change! All this was originally predicted in March 2020 on LRpatreon & greatly expanded in COVID-19 CATALYST & 2020-2026 PREDICTIONSwebinars!
So fasten your seat belts and tune in, if you want to know what I think and foresee for the USA, Europe and China! Many things will change, much will be very different, and many surprises will take place!
This will also be a rare opportunity to get together in a nice, cozy group of like-minded people and get some of your burning questions answered!
Here are my new webinar banners and proposed schedule:
Proposed ESW15 DATE: December 8 or 9, 2020 (Tue-Wedn – TBD)
Proposed ESW16 DATE: DECEMBER 17, 2020 (Thurs)
(after the electoral college vote on Dec 14, which by the way, falls on the eclipse!)
Since due to COVID I am not going anywhere for New Year’s, I have an opportunity to do the China webinar on Dec 29 (Tuesday), if enough of you are available for live participation. Those of you who are staying home may welcome some intelligent discussion and forward-looking predictions just before the New Year 2021 strikes, since likely not much will be happening otherwise! (Well, Trump did threaten to start a new war with Iran, but let’s hope he doesn’t right before New Year’s.)
- NOTE! The timing above does not concern those who want to purchase a recorded version of this webinar after the livestream! As always, the recorded version can be viewed any time, at your leisure, just like with all prior WEBINARS.
Proposed ESW17 DATES:
December 29, 2020 (Tue)
Beginning of January 2021 (likely either Jan 5 or 7 – TBD)
Part of me wants to do it all during December, but it’s up to you, guys! Please let me know in comments which dates work best for you!
- The new webinars will be LIVE STREAMED VIDEOS, with the live participants’ ability to ask questions! (Just type them in live chat!)
- To take part live, make sure you have an active YT account and follow me on YT (see my two channels below)! It’s all free!
- Or purchase these webinars the traditional way, on LadaRay.com! After the end of livestream, the recorded versions of each webinar will be posted for sale as all previously recorded WEBINARS, to purchase any time and view at your leisure.
- Lada Ray Patreon members will get their own private discount, depending on your tier (I’ll send you all a private message via LRPatreon messaging).
So as many people as possible are able to tune in live, and since we have a broad international audience, the livestream start time for each webinar will be either 10:30 am or 11 am EST. This seems to be the time best suited for most people around the globe.
When participating live, please convert to your local time using online time zone calculator: Time Zone Converter – Time Difference Calculator (Classic)
Please be on time: sign in 10-15 min before the start of the event!
Each webinar is projected to last about 2 hours, including Q&A.

Do You Want My Prediction on US ELECTION RESULTS? (+Amy Coney Barrett Supreme Court Confirmation?) + MY NEWS & CONFESSION!
Reblogged from Lada Ray patreon!
Biden or Trump?
Dear LRpatreon members, let me know if you want my 2020 US ELECTION PREDICTIONS on LRpatreon!
Fair warning! Not all of you may like what I have to say! Don’t shoot the messenger! My view of what will happen is higher-dimensional and neutral to either party!
Please note that I really, really am not interested in any infighting. I will simply tell you the truth, as I see it multidimensionally!
For reference, just remember that my prior US election predictions all came true. That includes the wins of G.W. Bush, Obama and Trump. In late 2016-early 2017 I also made a prediction as to the 2020 US election outcome, and we’ll soon see how that pans out!
Note: I do understand that some may be very passionate about their views and not all are able to take it when something is said about their country or politicians that’s not to their liking. I had people leave LRpatreon after I wrote something their own political views had trouble accepting, even if it was the absolute truth and my predictions later came true. Each of us has to decide for ourselves: what’s more important?
I say the truth is most important, even if it’s not to someone’s liking. The truth is liberating and seeing everything from a higher-dimensional/multidimensional viewpoint is especially freeing. This is my specialty and that’s what we do on LRpatreon!
If the majority of you respond favorably,
✨ MY PREDICTION WILL BE PUBLISHED EXCLUSIVELY ON LRpatreon ON NOVEMBER 1, as a special perk for my loyal members!
Also vote: do you want to hear my take on Amy Coney Barrett and how her Supreme Justice confirmation may shift the reality and affect the US Supreme Court?
✨MUCH MORE WILL BE SAID IN UPCOMING WEBINARS!
I plan to create a series of 3 WEBINARS, to be tentatively released between the end of November and mid-December.
The new WEBINARS will address:
1. The post-Election Reality & Future of America
2. Karma & the Future of Europe
3. The Expansion & Future of China
NOTE! I haven’t included Russia in this set because we have other webinars on Russia and I talk about it a lot. I want to cover the superpowers that have not been covered as extensively, especially the EU and China. The US is included because of elections and the shifting ripple effect they will create for the US and the world!
But if you want me to create a dedicated webinar on Russia’s future, with more fascinating new details, I’ll be happy to do that, eventually. Let me know in comments!
I am working on making the new webinars livestreamed!
This format means that those who participate during livestream will be able to text me questions that will be answered for them during webinar Q&A.
For those who asked: onscreen, only I will be visible, and you’ll have full privacy. Your texted questions will be visible to webinar participants. The participation is easy: after payment I’ll send you instructions and your private live link.
I plan a pre-purchase option for live participants; the seats are limited.
Alternatively, those not interested in live participation and in having their questions answered, will be able to purchase the webinars as usual, and listen to the recorded version any time at their leisure.
There will be special discounts for LRpatreon members!
Vote in comments below & let me know your interests!
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
Since August, I’ve been doing major amounts of research, to bring to you my latest pieces!
The Belarus & Navalny/Novichok investigations became so big and views vary so much that I am still working on them, partially because it hits so close to home and it’s taking me some time to fit in my head how low some people can stoop and how humans manage to harm themselves through their own fallacy and hubris. Both the Belarus and Navalny-Germany-Novichok cases are notorious in that regard. Just when I thought I’ve seen everything after 2014 Kiev Maidan, those two cases hit a new low. At the same time, I am glad I waited to tell you the whole story, because now more and more silver lining is showing and I am already seeing the good that will come out of the previously lousy situations!
And as you know, I love to give you guys hope for the future – call it my angelic nature ;). See most recent Q&A, where I talk more about that: WATCH FULL MULTIDIMENSIONAL Q&A 2: Reptilians, Greys, 6D-12D, Archangels, Moon Landing, 3D Reality, Humanoids & Human Experience, Akashic Records, Spirit Guides & more! (w. Beautiful Upstate NY Fall Nature!)
THE BEST NEWS! My Belarus Miracle & Navalny Conspiracy REPORTS are coming and they’ll probably be masterpieces, lol ;).
Much has already been written by me and I’ll finish them just as soon as I can reconcile everything I have collected, in one coherent system. Bear with me – those will be major pieces I think you’ll enjoy reading because of the rare, probably unique material with a positive and entertaining, yet future-oriented spin!
✨ Meantime, life goes on and I continue releasing major pieces!

Pay attention to what I predicted in 2017 re. Belarus & Lukashenko! + Major Quantum Calibrations for Putin, Trump, Merkel, etc.!
The original report of July 10, 2017 is currently a featured post on FuturisTrendcast blog!
Read complete original report on FT:
G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, Lukashenko, Poland, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions!
or read free on LRPatreon, incl. 9/16/20 intro and added Lukashenko/Belarus note:
G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, Lukashenko, Poland, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions!
**Pay attention to the timeframe I predicted for Lukashenko’s end!
This FREE report is a classic and is as relevant today as it was when it all happened! My 2017 quantum calibrations and predictions reflect today’s events and personalities, as if in a mirror! Great for students of geopolitics, global events, dark state and deep state, human behavior patterns, and for learning more about Lada Ray’s quantum calibrations and Earth Shift predictions!
This extensive report contains many exclusive Quantum Calibrations and unique Predictions. What’s especially fascinating is how the relationships and events I discuss here have evolved and how the cycle is repeated since 2017, coming to a culmination through the events we discuss today, and of which we’ll continue talking for some time to come! The same countries are in the headlines, as seen below!
**PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT I SAID ABOUT POLAND AND THEIR ROLE BACK IN 2017! AND ALSO WHAT I SAID ABOUT LUKASHENKO AND HIS BEHAVIOR! At the time there wasn’t even an inkling of info about the unsavory undermining role Poland plays today in Belorussian events (you’ll read about that in my upcoming report on Russia-Belarus & the End of Belorussian Miracle), but their overall pattern is disclosed in this post. And there was no inkling of the current Belarus events, yet Lukashenko’s behavior was off even back then!

Something positive and inspiring, as a continuation of our extended #Victory75 marathon!
A beautiful, energetic and striking compilation from Victory Day open air performances by the Russian Turetsky Choir in Moscow, Berlin and New York in 2019. This is what it looked like when there was on COVID quarantine!
This is the choir I told you about in previous post: The Turetsky Choir Sings the Legendary KATYUSHA online! #ImmortalRegimentOnline #БессмертныйПолкОнлайн.
It consists of two unique world-famous bands: the Turetsky Male Choir and the all-female group Soprano, who sometimes perform together.
This is a compilation of three concerts for May 9, Victory Day 2019. Lots of great and famous Russian songs of war and peace, love and victory. The video switches repeatedly between three concerts, all performed on legendary outdoor stages, carefully chosen for the occasion:
1. Moscow: Belarussky Train Station Square
This is where the first Victory Train from Berlin had arrived on May 10, 1945. You can see and read about it here: 3 Unbelievable Stories & Amazing Historic WWII Videos! 1st Red Square Victory Day Parade; Nazi generals ‘walk of shame’ through Moscow; 1st Victory Train from Berlin!
It was also a famous backdrop of the Soviet film ‘Belarussky Station’ about the reunion of several WWII vets, with its legendary song, ‘We Need One Victory.’ Notice how public reacts to songs!
2. Berlin: Gendarmenmarkt Square
It is the site of the Berlin Concert Hall and the same square on which the legendary 1st concert of the Red Army Choir took place in 1945, shortly after the Victory over Hitler. Huge crowds of Berliners gathered on and around the square to listen to that hit concert, many perched on ledges, steps and tops of buildings. The scene is closely recreated, down to crowds, people perched on ledges of nearby buildings and straddling statues surrounding the square.
3. New York: Battery Park
If you are at all familiar with New York, I don’t need to tell you what kind of place this is! One of the nicest spots in Manhattan, with lovely water views. Widely thought of as the place from which the ‘American liberty’ began. You can see the Statue of Liberty in the background.
Overall the Turetsky Choir did Victory Day concerts in over 12 countries worldwide (possibly more, not sure of the latest stats). Of course, nothing this year, due to COVID. They’ll probably resume next year.
Listen to these sparkling concerts – I think you’ll enjoy this compilation, as do I!
**This post was originally written and compiled on May 9, 2020. I thought I’d post it soon after. Due to the release of my new SERIES 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS and other Lada Ray Patreon events I only am getting around to posting it in July. However, the beautiful video concert, combining all three concerts in one, has been taken down by YouTube, saying there is a copyright strike against it. (A typical thing that might happen during Mercury retrograde.)
I thought uniting three very significant locales in three major capitals in one concert was a great way to present it. But since it’s not available, check out other videos I found on YT.
This is a 30 min part of the same Berlin concert – it gives you a good idea of the whole thing (too bad no whole concert is available any more):

Vladimir Putin Shocks the West! The Munich Betrayal and The Real Lessons of the 75th Anniversary of World War II (Putin’s Article in The National Interest Magazine, USA)
Lada Ray foreword and full article by Vladimir Putin are being released on FuturisTrendcast at 4 am on June 22, 2020!
LADA RAY FOREWORD!
On June 22, 1941, at 4 am, Nazi Germany, aided and abetted by other regimes and economic giants of Europe, unprovoked attacked Russia/ the USSR. The Great Patriotic War that cost 27 million of precious lives of Russians, Ukrainians, Belorussians and all Soviet people began! My family lost several people to the war, and those who survived carried traumas for the rest of their lives!
Lada Ray Patreon exclusive – the truth-illuminating and striking: Russian & American: A Remarkable Tale of Two Centenarian Ladies & Today’s Situation in Perspective! ~ LADA RAY ESSAY
It was an ordeal and genocide of the primarily Russian – Eastern Slavic population that to this day has not received an adequate international reaction and legal response! The scale of the genocide of the Russian people and their branchouts (Ukrainians/Russins and Belorussians) is unheard of in human history! And if Russia/USSR didn’t manage to withstand that vicious and all-encompassing aggression, today there would probably be no one to talk to you. I would not be here and this blog would not exist. Putin’s article would never be published. The history would have been re-written, as Russia the Great Balancer, the only force that always stood in the way of unabated Western aggression, would be wiped out! And none the wiser, you all would be living in the globalist world ruled by the Dark Nazi State.
Because make no mistake! Hitler’s aggression was AN EARLY ATTEMPT TO CREATE ONE GLOBALIST STATE BASED ON HATEFUL AND ANTI-HUMAN NAZI PRINCIPLES! THERE WOULD BE NO ROOM IN THAT DARK AND UGLY WORLD FOR ME AND FOR MANY OTHERS, who didn’t fit the profile of the German Nazis and other crazies.
But the world turned out to have much more sanity than perhaps one would believe in 1941. Russia/USSR turned out much stronger than the West anticipated. And Russia was aided by the cosmic forces of good, which no one at the time believed or foresaw… Today that cosmic help to Russia, the help from God, is pretty clear and I often talk about it in my work.
As Putin once said: ‘If Russia were destroyed, who needs the world without Russia?’
This is the TIME OF RUSSIA!
Putin always surprises, and he always does things on his own timeline, thus winning all strategic battles, even if it may seem like tactically the energy was against him. This time, for the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War (WWII in the West), he published an article in the iconic conservative geopolitical magazine, The National Interest.
The Victory Day is usually celebrated on May 9th, with a grand Red Square parade and together with invited foreign leaders and millions-strong global Immortal Regiment. The 75th anniversary was planned as one of the grandest ever, but due to COVID it had to be postponed. This vacuum gave an opportunity to all kinds of dark and slimy forces to attack Russia and malign Victory. Those forces crawled out of their holes, from Poland to Prague and from YouTube to Facebook.
Yet, in a strangest and most poetic-justice twist, this postponement turned to Russia’s favor. And what did you expect? This is the Time of Russia, per my predictions. The dark forces had meticulously planned their history re-writing attacks to coincide with May 9 and they spent all of their steam and munitions by that date. Meantime, the actual events are happening throughout the summer, allowing many more opportunities to remind the world about the truth and Russia’s real role.
My new prediction! Putin will also manage to get the leaders together soon, in order to begin developing a new architecture for the world to come! More on that later – on Patreon!
The grand parades on Red Square and all over Russia are happening on June 24; the Immortal Regiment March on July 26.
Just before these two dates and to coincide with June 22, the day of the attack on the USSR, Putin publishes his article in Washington ‘s National Interest. Coincidence? I think not.
Putin FINALLY chimes in and tells the West the real story of the Munich Betrayal of the European governments, where a separate deal was struck with Germany/Hitler, in order to divide Czechoslovakia and ultimately sick Nazi Germany against Russia the Great Balancer, in its then guise as the USSR.
Munich Pact signed. British and French prime ministers Neville Chamberlain and Edouard Daladier sign the Munich Pact with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. The agreement averted the outbreak of war but gave Czechoslovakia away to German conquest. Daladier abhorred the Munich Pact’s appeasement of the Nazis, but Chamberlain was elated and even stayed behind in Munich to sign a single-page document with Hitler that he believed assured the future of Anglo-German peace. Later that day, Chamberlain flew home to Britain, where he addressed a jubilant crowd in London and praised the Munich Pact for bringing “peace with honor” and “peace in our time.” The next day, Germany annexed the Sudetenland, and the Czechoslovak government chose submission over destruction by the German Wehrmacht. In March 1939, Hitler annexed the rest of Czechoslovakia, and the country ceased to exist.
It’s called ‘The Munich Betrayal’ in Russia, because it not only betrayed Czechoslovakia, but it wide-opened doors for Hitler’s attack against Russia/ USSR, which was the ultimate reason the Munich Pact was signed. Czechoslovakia was a bribe, a sacrificial lamb for Hitler to leave the West alone and to direct his efforts towards destroying Russia! Poland played its unsightly role, by preventing the USSR from defending Czechoslovakia and by chopping off a chunk of it for itself.
At the time, Russia asked for passage for the Russian troops through Poland to save Czechoslovakia, but Poland, which always was a little poodle to the West, denied it. The letter issued by Moscow to Warsaw said that “The USSR will defend Czechoslovakia like it would defend its own land.” I think it also appealed to the Slavic solidarity… What solidarity?.. Those people would sell off their own mother if they were given adequate compensation by their Western masters.
It’s actually amazing how dumb and feeble the current generation of Czechs is, who are now destroying the monuments to Russian liberators of Prague. Are they looking for the repeat of that ugly story?…
See my related posts:
This factual story should be common knowledge, yet it continues being vehemently denied and attempted to be re-written. The vicious attempts to reverse polarities and cast the ultimate victims of Western aggression, Russia – USSR, as aggressor, portraying the perpetrators and world’s biggest war criminals as poor, innocent victims, are a part of the same game being played by the West for centuries: it’s called the vilification of Russia the Great Balancer. Reason? Only Russia prevents the globalist Western takeover of the world, and thus, per their logic, she has to be destroyed by whichever means possible!
Putin also hints on some very uncomfortable for the Europeans, and specifically for the UK, secret documents and secret agreements with Nazi Germany. He is calling on countries to declassify and publish them, as Russia has been doing for years on her end! What kind of secrets agreements? The chess master will reveal them in due time, if European governments won’t. But whatever those secret unilateral agreements between the British, Hungary, France, Poland, Italy and Nazi Germany (possibly also other countries) were, we can confidently say they would be unsavory and damning as they helped plunge the world into WWII and they were directed against Russia! And all this happened in 1938 – remember this date!
Stalin and his people saw what was happening: Hitler was getting stronger, as he annexed the Czech territories famous for their industrial might, to be later used against Russia; Europeans were signing secret deals behind Soviet back, trying to channel Hitler/Nazis aggression towards Russia. The USSR repeatedly reached out to the UK, France and others with offers to develop the all-European strategy for dealing with Germany’s aggression and upcoming war crisis. In response, Russia/USSR was snubbed and stonewalled, the Munich Betrayal was signed, UK and European counties began appeasing Hitler and signing secret deals with him.
It was Stalin’s last ditch desperate response to all this massive madness and betrayal by Europeans that made the USSR sign the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in 1939! After all the European snubbing and betrayals, it was the only venue left to postpone, if not prevent, the war with Germany.
If Europeans, UK and Poland acted differently, it is possible that the war could have been prevented or at least deescalated. Therefore, Poland, France and UK, and the rest of Europe, had only themselves to blame when Hitler started picking them off one by one! They surrendered without a fight, except UK, presenting themselves and their countries to Hitler on a platter. Later, the economic might of entire Europe was used by Germany to ATTACK RUSSIA/USSR! There were a number of divisions in the German army that represented various European countries. Therefore, we can confidently say – however sad it sounds – that it was the Unified Europe that attacked Russia/ USSR in 1941!
One publication in an American magazine, even by the world’s most popular leader Vladimir Putin, won’t change decades and centuries of warped history and Russophobic mentality, but it’s a nice and long-needed dent in the agenda and culture of lies and manipulations the rest of the world had to swallow til now. At the very least it signals something very amusingly funny (wait, let me get my popcorn!): Poland, which has been at the forefront of lies and re-writing of history of WWII, in order to earn its keep and cover up its own massive misdeeds, doesn’t have as much US support as it thought it did. I intend to kick back and watch the show: just give it a few years and see how that whole aggressive and arrogant attitude by Poland, Czechia and the current ukro-nazi version Ukraine (sorry to say) will simply deflate without proper support and lavish compensation from the West.
This will happen as the West will have more and more internal problems to deal with; as a result it won’t have much time or resources to sabotage Russia. It’ll take some time, but believe me, it’ll happen sooner than some think! See my Period 8 and Period 9 PREDICTIONS in Webinar 4 and in the New Series 3, especially Webinar 14!
In previous articles I predicted that Poland and Czechia will eventually have a huge karmic debt to pay for their actions. An interesting thing is that Russia doesn’t even have to do anything. It’ll happen of its own accord, as part of the rebalancing of the scales of justice.

Particularly, the new upcoming Webinar 14:
How Neptune, Saturn & Period 9 Shift Will Change Everything!
To me, the main premise of Putin’s message is that all sane and healthy forces in the world should now unite, in order to face new challenges and prevent the new war, whether hot or hybrid.
As the West starts going up in flames and madness gets out of hand, Russia and Putin, as always, play the role of THE GREAT BALANCER AND PEACEMAKER. And as usual, Putin yet again demonstrates that he is the only adult in the room full of juvenile delinquents and ignoramuses – or outright criminals! Now, if only the rest of them grew an ear to hear and a gut to act with honor, if not reason.
Otherwise, like many times before, we continue casting the pearls before those who’ll never appreciate them… Moreover, as a thank you, they tend to destroy the memory and truth, and attack their saviors…
A quotation from Matthew 7:6 in Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount: “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.”
Goodness, how did he know?…
The Earth Shift & Russia the Great Balancer teachings by Lada Ray
Seventy-five years have passed since the end of the Great Patriotic War. Several generations have grown up over the years. The political map of the planet has changed. The Soviet Union that claimed an epic, crushing victory over Nazism and saved the entire world is gone. Besides, the events of that war have long become a distant memory, even for its participants. So why does Russia celebrate the ninth of May as the biggest holiday? Why does life almost come to a halt on June 22? And why does one feel a lump rise in their throat?
They usually say that the war has left a deep imprint on every family’s history. Behind these words, there are fates of millions of people, their sufferings and the pain of loss. Behind these words, there is also the pride, the truth and the memory.
For my parents, the war meant the terrible ordeals of the Siege of Leningrad where my two-year-old brother Vitya died. It was the place where my mother miraculously managed to survive. My father, despite being exempt from active duty, volunteered to defend his hometown. He made the same decision as millions of Soviet citizens. He fought at the Nevsky Pyatachok bridgehead and was severely wounded. And the more years pass, the more I feel the need to talk to my parents and learn more about the war period of their lives. However, I no longer have the opportunity to do so. This is the reason why I treasure in my heart those conversations I had with my father and mother on this subject, as well as the little emotion they showed.
People of my age and I believe it is important that our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren understand the torment and hardships their ancestors had to endure. They need to understand how their ancestors managed to persevere and win. Where did their sheer, unbending willpower that amazed and fascinated the whole world come from? Sure, they were defending their home, their children, loved ones and families. However, what they shared was the love for their homeland, their Motherland. That deep-seated, intimate feeling is fully reflected in the very essence of our nation and became one of the decisive factors in its heroic, sacrificial fight against the Nazis.
I often wonder: What would today’s generation do? How will it act when faced with a crisis situation? I see young doctors, nurses, sometimes fresh graduates that go to the “red zone” to save lives. I see our servicemen that fight international terrorism in the Northern Caucasus and fought to the bitter end in Syria. They are so young. Many servicemen who were part of the legendary, immortal 6th Paratroop Company were 19-20 years old. But all of them proved that they deserved to inherit the feat of the warriors of our homeland that defended it during the Great Patriotic War.
This is why I am confident that one of the characteristic features of the peoples of Russia is to fulfill their duty without feeling sorry for themselves when the circumstances so demand. Such values as selflessness, patriotism, love for their home, their family and Motherland remain fundamental and integral to the Russian society to this day. These values are, to a large extent, the backbone of our country’s sovereignty.
Nowadays, we have new traditions created by the people, such as the Immortal Regiment. This is the memory march that symbolizes our gratitude, as well as the living connection and the blood ties between generations. Millions of people come out to the streets carrying the photographs of their relatives that defended their Motherland and defeated the Nazis. This means that their lives, their ordeals and sacrifices, as well as the Victory that they left to us will never be forgotten.
We have a responsibility to our past and our future to do our utmost to prevent those horrible tragedies from happening ever again. Hence, I was compelled to come out with an article about World War II and the Great Patriotic War. I have discussed this idea on several occasions with world leaders, and they have showed their support. At the summit of CIS leaders held at the end of last year, we all agreed on one thing: it is essential to pass on to future generations the memory of the fact that the Nazis were defeated first and foremost by the Soviet people and that representatives of all republics of the Soviet Union fought side by side together in that heroic battle, both on the frontlines and in the rear. During that summit, I also talked with my counterparts about the challenging pre-war period.
That conversation caused a stir in Europe and the world. It means that it is indeed high time that we revisited the lessons of the past. At the same time, there were many emotional outbursts, poorly disguised insecurities and loud accusations that followed. Acting out of habit, certain politicians rushed to claim that Russia was trying to rewrite history. However, they failed to rebut a single fact or refute a single argument. It is indeed difficult, if not impossible, to argue with the original documents that, by the way, can be found not only in the Russian, but also in the foreign archives.
Thus, there is a need to further examine the reasons that caused the world war and reflect on its complicated events, tragedies and victories, as well as its lessons, both for our country and the entire world. And like I said, it is crucial to rely exclusively on archive documents and contemporary evidence while avoiding any ideological or politicized speculations.
I would like to once again recall the obvious fact. The root causes of World War II mainly stem from the decisions made after World War I. The Treaty of Versailles became a symbol of grave injustice for Germany. It basically implied that the country was to be robbed, being forced to pay enormous reparations to the Western allies that drained its economy. French marshal Ferdinand Foch who served as the Supreme Allied Commander gave a prophetic description of that Treaty: “This is not peace. It is an armistice for twenty years.”
It was the national humiliation that became a fertile ground for radical sentiments of revenge in Germany. The Nazis skillfully played on people’s emotions and built their propaganda promising to deliver Germany from the “legacy of Versailles” and restore the country to its former power while essentially pushing German people into war. Paradoxically, the Western states, particularly the United Kingdom and the United States, directly or indirectly contributed to this. Their financial and industrial enterprises actively invested in German factories and plants manufacturing military products. Besides, many people in the aristocracy and political establishment supported radical, far-right and nationalist movements that were on the rise both in Germany and in Europe.
The “Versailles world order” caused numerous implicit controversies and apparent conflicts. They revolved around the borders of new European states randomly set by the victors in World War I. That boundary delimitation was almost immediately followed by territorial disputes and mutual claims that turned into “time bombs”.
One of the major outcomes of World War I was the establishment of the League of Nations. There were high expectations for that international organization to ensure lasting peace and collective security. It was a progressive idea that, if followed through consistently, could actually prevent the horrors of a global war from happening again.
However, the League of Nations dominated by the victorious powers of France and the United Kingdom proved ineffective and just got swamped by pointless discussions. The League of Nations and the European continent in general turned a deaf ear to the repeated calls of the Soviet Union to establish an equitable collective security system, and sign an Eastern European pact and a Pacific pact to prevent aggression. These proposals were disregarded.
The League of Nations also failed to prevent conflicts in various parts of the world, such as the attack of Italy on Ethiopia, the civil war in Spain, the Japanese aggression against China and the Anschluss of Austria. Furthermore, in case of the Munich Betrayal that, in addition to Hitler and Mussolini, involved British and French leaders, Czechoslovakia was taken apart with the full approval of the League of Nations. I would like to point out in this regard that, unlike many other European leaders of that time, Stalin did not disgrace himself by meeting with Hitler who was known among the Western nations as quite a reputable politician and was a welcome guest in the European capitals.
Poland was also engaged in the partition of Czechoslovakia along with Germany. They decided together in advance who would get what Czechoslovak territories. On September 20, 1938, Polish Ambassador to Germany Józef Lipski reported to Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Józef Beck on the following assurances made by Hitler: “…in case of a conflict between Poland and Czechoslovakia over our interests in Teschen, the Reich would stand by Poland.” The Nazi leader even prompted and advised that Poland started to act “only after the Germans occupy the Sudetes.”
Poland was aware that without Hitler’s support, its annexationist plans were doomed to fail. I would like to quote in this regard a record of the conversation between German Ambassador to Warsaw Hans-Adolf von Moltke and Józef Beck that took place on October 1, 1938, and was focused on the Polish-Czech relations and the position of the Soviet Union in this matter. It says: “Mr. Beck expressed real gratitude for the loyal treatment accorded [to] Polish interests at the Munich conference, as well as the sincerity of relations during the Czech conflict. The attitude of the Führer and Chancellor was fully appreciated by the Government and the public [of Poland].”
The partition of Czechoslovakia was brutal and cynical. Munich destroyed even the formal, fragile guarantees that remained on the continent. It showed that mutual agreements were worthless. It was the Munich Betrayal that served as a “trigger” and made the great war in Europe inevitable.
Today, European politicians, and Polish leaders in particular, wish to sweep the Munich Betrayal under the carpet. Why? The fact that their countries once broke their commitments and supported the Munich Betrayal, with some of them even participating in divvying up the take, is not the only reason. Another is that it is kind of embarrassing to recall that during those dramatic days of 1938, the Soviet Union was the only one to stand up for Czechoslovakia.
The Soviet Union, in accordance with its international obligations, including agreements with France and Czechoslovakia, tried to prevent the tragedy from happening. Meanwhile, Poland, in pursuit of its interests, was doing its utmost to hamper the establishment of a collective security system in Europe. Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Józef Beck wrote about it directly in his letter of September 19, 1938 to the aforementioned Ambassador Józef Lipski before his meeting with Hitler: “…in the past year, the Polish government rejected four times the proposal to join the international interfering in defense of Czechoslovakia.”
Britain, as well as France, which was at the time the main ally of the Czechs and Slovaks, chose to withdraw their guarantees and abandon this Eastern European country to its fate. In so doing, they sought to direct the attention of the Nazis eastward so that Germany and the Soviet Union would inevitably clash and bleed each other white.
That is the essence of the western policy of appeasement, which was pursued not only towards the Third Reich but also towards other participants of the so-called Anti-Comintern Pact – the fascist Italy and militarist Japan. In the Far East, this policy culminated in the conclusion of the Anglo-Japanese agreement in the summer of 1939, which gave Tokyo a free hand in China. The leading European powers were unwilling to recognize the mortal danger posed by Germany and its allies to the whole world. They were hoping that they themselves would be left untouched by the war.
The Munich Betrayal showed to the Soviet Union that the Western countries would deal with security issues without taking its interests into account. In fact, they could even create an anti-Soviet front, if needed.
Nevertheless, the Soviet Union did its utmost to use every chance of creating an anti-Hitler coalition. Despite – I will say it again – the double‑dealing on the part of the Western countries. For instance, the intelligence services reported to the Soviet leadership detailed information on the behind-the-scenes contacts between Britain and Germany in the summer of 1939. The important thing is that those contacts were quite active and practically coincided with the tripartite negotiations between France, Great Britain and the USSR, which were, on the contrary, deliberately protracted by the Western partners. In this connection, I will cite a document from the British archives. It contains instructions to the British military mission that came to Moscow in August 1939. It directly states that the delegation was to proceed with negotiations very slowly, and that the Government of the United Kingdom was not ready to assume any obligations spelled out in detail and limiting their freedom of action under any circumstances. I will also note that, unlike the British and French delegations, the Soviet delegation was headed by top commanders of the Red Army, who had the necessary authority to “sign a military convention on the organization of military defense of England, France and the USSR against aggression in Europe.”
Poland played its role in the failure of those negotiations as it did not want to have any obligations to the Soviet side. Even under pressure from their Western allies, the Polish leadership rejected the idea of joint action with the Red Army to fight against the Wehrmacht. It was only when they learned of the arrival of Ribbentrop to Moscow that J. Beck reluctantly and not directly, through French diplomats, notified the Soviet side: “… in the event of joint action against the German aggression, cooperation between Poland and the Soviet Union is not out of the question, in technical circumstances which remain to be agreed.” At the same time, he explained to his colleagues: “… I agreed to this wording only for the sake of the tactics, and our core position in relation to the Soviet Union is final and remains unchanged.”
In these circumstances, the Soviet Union signed the Non-Aggression Pact with Germany. It was practically the last among the European countries to do so. Besides, it was done in the face of a real threat of war on two fronts – with Germany in the west and with Japan in the east, where intense fighting on the Khalkhin Gol River was already underway.
Stalin and his entourage, indeed, deserve many legitimate accusations. We remember the crimes committed by the regime against its own people and the horror of mass repressions. In other words, there are many things the Soviet leaders can be reproached for, but poor understanding of the nature of external threats is not one of them. They saw how attempts were made to leave the Soviet Union alone to deal with Germany and its allies. Bearing in mind this real threat, they sought to buy precious time needed to strengthen the country’s defenses.
Nowadays, we hear lots of speculations and accusations against modern Russia in connection with the Non-Aggression Pact signed back then. Yes, Russia is the legal successor state to the USSR, and the Soviet period – with all its triumphs and tragedies – is an inalienable part of our thousand-year-long history. However, let us recall that the Soviet Union gave a legal and moral assessment of the so-called Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. The Supreme Soviet in its resolution of 24 December 1989 officially denounced the secret protocols as “an act of personal power” which in no way reﬂected “the will of the Soviet people who bear no responsibility for this collusion.”
Yet other states have preferred to forget the agreements carrying signatures of the Nazis and Western politicians, not to mention giving legal or political assessments of such cooperation, including the silent acquiescence – or even direct abetment – of some European politicians in the barbarous plans of the Nazis. It will suffice to remember the cynical phrase said by Polish Ambassador to Germany J. Lipski during his conversation with Hitler on 20 September 1938: “…for solving the Jewish problem, we [the Poles] will build in his honor … a splendid monument in Warsaw.”
Besides, we do not know if there were any secret “protocols” or annexes to agreements of a number of countries with the Nazis. The only thing that is left to do is to take their word for it. In particular, materials pertaining to the secret Anglo-German talks still have not been declassified. Therefore, we urge all states to step up the process of making their archives public and publishing previously unknown documents of the war and pre-war periods – the way Russia has done it in recent years. In this context, we are ready for broad cooperation and joint research projects engaging historians.
But let us go back to the events immediately preceding the Second World War. It was naïve to believe that Hitler, once done with Czechoslovakia, would not make new territorial claims. This time the claims involved its recent accomplice in the partition of Czechoslovakia – Poland. Here, the legacy of Versailles, particularly the fate of the so-called Danzig Corridor, was yet again used as the pretext. The blame for the tragedy that Poland then suffered lies entirely with the Polish leadership, which had impeded the formation of a military alliance between Britain, France and the Soviet Union and relied on the help from its Western partners, throwing its own people under the steamroller of Hitler’s machine of destruction.
The German offensive was mounted in full accordance with the blitzkrieg doctrine. Despite the fierce, heroic resistance of the Polish army, on 8 September 1939 – only a week after the war broke out – the German troops were on the approaches to Warsaw. By 17 September, the military and political leaders of Poland had fled to Romania, abandoning its people, who continued to fight against the invaders.
Poland’s hope for help from its Western allies was in vain. After the war against Germany was declared, the French troops advanced only a few tens of kilometers deep into the German territory. All of it looked like a mere demonstration of vigorous action. Moreover, the Anglo-French Supreme War Council, holding its first meeting on 12 September 1939 in the French city of Abbeville, decided to call off the offensive altogether in view of the rapid developments in Poland. That was when the infamous Phony War started. What Britain and France did was a blatant betrayal of their obligations to Poland.
Later, during the Nuremberg trials, German generals explained their quick success in the East. The former chief of the operations staff of the German armed forces high command, General Alfred Jodl admitted: “… we did not suffer defeat as early as 1939 only because about 110 French and British divisions stationed in the west against 23 German divisions during our war with Poland remained absolutely idle.”
I asked for retrieval from the archives of the whole body of materials pertaining to the contacts between the USSR and Germany in the dramatic days of August and September 1939. According to the documents, paragraph 2 of the Secret Protocol to the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact of 23 August 1939 stated that, in the event of territorial-political reorganization of the districts making up the Polish state, the border of the spheres of interest of the two countries would run “approximately along the Narew, Vistula and San rivers”. In other words, the Soviet sphere of influence included not only the territories that were mostly home to Ukrainian and Belarusian population but also the historically Polish lands in the Vistula and Bug interfluve. This fact is known to very few these days.
Similarly, very few know that, immediately following the attack on Poland, in the early days of September 1939 Berlin strongly and repeatedly called on Moscow to join the military action. However, the Soviet leadership ignored those calls and planned to avoid engaging in the dramatic developments as long as possible.
It was only when it became absolutely clear that Great Britain and France were not going to help their ally and the Wehrmacht could swiftly occupy entire Poland and thus appear on the approaches to Minsk that the Soviet Union decided to send in, on the morning of 17 September, Red Army units into the so-called Eastern Borderlines, which nowadays form part of the territories of Belarus, Ukraine and Lithuania.
Obviously, there was no alternative. Otherwise, the USSR would face seriously increased risks because – I will say this again – the old Soviet-Polish border ran only within a few tens of kilometers of Minsk. The country would have to enter the inevitable war with the Nazis from very disadvantageous strategic positions, while millions of people of different nationalities, including the Jews living near Brest and Grodno, Przemyśl, Lvov and Wilno, would be left to die at the hands of the Nazis and their local accomplices – anti-Semites and radical nationalists.
The fact that the Soviet Union sought to avoid engaging in the growing conflict for as long as possible and was unwilling to fight side by side with Germany was the reason why the real contact between the Soviet and the German troops occurred much farther east than the borders agreed in the secret protocol. It was not on the Vistula River but closer to the so-called Curzon Line, which back in 1919 was recommended by the Triple Entente as the eastern border of Poland.
As is known, there is hardly any point in using the subjunctive mood when we speak of the past events. I will only say that, in September 1939, the Soviet leadership had an opportunity to move the western borders of the USSR even farther west, all the way to Warsaw, but decided against it.
The Germans suggested formalizing the new status quo. On September 28, 1939 Joachim von Ribbentrop and V.Molotov signed in Moscow the Boundary and Friendship Treaty between Germany and the Soviet Union, as well as the secret protocol on changing the state border, according to which the border was recognized at the demarcation line where the two armies de-facto stood.
In autumn 1939, the Soviet Union, pursuing its strategic military and defensive goals, started the process of the incorporation of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Their accession to the USSR was implemented on a contractual basis, with the consent of the elected authorities. This was in line with international and state law of that time. Besides, in October 1939, the city of Vilna and the surrounding area, which had previously been part of Poland, were returned to Lithuania. The Baltic republics within the USSR preserved their government bodies, language, and had representation in the higher state structures of the Soviet Union.
During all these months there was an ongoing invisible diplomatic and politico-military struggle and intelligence work. Moscow understood that it was facing a fierce and cruel enemy, and that a covert war against Nazism was already going on. And there is no reason to take official statements and formal protocol notes of that time as a proof of ‘friendship’ between the USSR and Germany. The Soviet Union had active trade and technical contacts not only with Germany, but with other countries as well. Whereas Hitler tried again and again to draw the Soviet Union into Germany’s confrontation with the UK. But the Soviet government stood firm.
The last attempt to persuade the USSR to act together was made by Hitler during the visit of Molotov to Berlin in November 1940. But Molotov accurately followed Stalin’s instructions and limited himself to a general discussion of the German idea of the Soviet Union joining the Tripartite Pact signed by Germany, Italy and Japan in September 1940 and directed against the UK and the USA. No wonder that already on November 17 Molotov gave the following instructions to Soviet plenipotentiary representative in London Ivan Maisky: “For your information…No agreement was signed or was intended to be signed in Berlin. We just exchanged our views in Berlin…and that was all…Apparently, the Germans and the Japanese seem anxious to push us towards the Gulf and India. We declined the discussion of this matter as we consider such advice on the part of Germany to be inappropriate.” And on November 25 the Soviet leadership called it a day altogether by officially putting forward to Berlin the conditions that were unacceptable to the Nazis, including the withdrawal of German troops from Finland, mutual assistance treaty between Bulgaria and the USSR, and a number of others. Thus it deliberately excluded any possibility of joining the Pact. Such position definitely shaped the Fuehrer’s intention to unleash a war against the USSR. And already in December, putting aside the warnings of his strategists about the disastrous danger of having a two-front war, Hitler approved the Barbarossa Plan. He did this with the knowledge that the Soviet Union was the major force that opposed him in Europe and that the upcoming battle in the East would decide the outcome of the world war. And he had no doubts as to the swiftness and success of the Moscow campaign.
And here I would like to highlight the following: Western countries, as a matter of fact, agreed at that time with the Soviet actions and recognized the Soviet Union’s intention to ensure its national security. Indeed, back on October 1, 1939 Winston Churchill, the First Lord of the Admiralty back then, in his speech on the radio said, “Russia has pursued a cold policy of self-interest… But that the Russian armies should stand on this line [the new Western border is meant] was clearly necessary for the safety of Russia against the Nazi menace.” On October 4, 1939 speaking in the House of Lords British Foreign Secretary Halifax said, “…it should be recalled that the Soviet government’s actions were to move the border essentially to the line recommended at the Versailles Conference by Lord Curzon… I only cite historical facts and believe they are indisputable.” Prominent British politician and statesman D. Lloyd George emphasized, “The Russian armies occupied the territories that are not Polish and that were forcibly seized by Poland after the First World War … It would be an act of criminal insanity to put the Russian advancement on a par with the German one.”
In informal communications with Soviet plenipotentiary representative Maisky, British diplomats and high-level politicians spoke even more openly. On October 17, 1939 Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs R. A. Butler confided him that the British government circles believed there could be no question of returning Western Ukraine and Belarus to Poland. According to him, if it had been possible to create an ethnographic Poland of a modest size with a guarantee not only of the USSR and Germany, but also of Britain and France, the British government would have considered itself quite satisfied. On October 27, 1939, Chamberlain’s senior advisor H.Wilson said that Poland had to be restored as an independent state on its ethnographic basis, but without Western Ukraine and Belarus.
It is worth noting that in the course of these conversations the possibilities for improving British-Soviet relations were also being explored. These contacts to a large extent laid the foundation for future alliance and anti-Hitler coalition. Churchill stood out among other responsible and far-sighted politicians and, despite his infamous dislike for the USSR, had been in favour of cooperating with the Soviets even before. Back in May 1939, he said in the House of Commons, “We shall be in mortal danger if we fail to create a grand alliance against aggression. The worst folly would be to drive away any natural cooperation with Soviet Russia.” And after the start of hostilities in Europe, at his meeting with Maisky on October 6, 1939 he confided that there were no serious contradictions between the UK and the USSR and, therefore, there was no reason for strained or unsatisfactory relations. He also mentioned that the British government was eager to develop trade relations and willing to discuss any other measures that might improve the relationships.
The Second World War did not happen overnight, nor did it start unexpectedly or all of a sudden. And German aggression against Poland was not out of nowhere. It was the result of a number of tendencies and factors of the world policy of that time. All pre-war events fell into place to form one fatal chain. But, undoubtedly, the main factors that predetermined the greatest tragedy in the history of mankind were state egoism, cowardice, appeasement of the aggressor who was gaining strength, and unwillingness of political elites to search for a compromise.
Therefore, it is unfair to claim that the two-day visit to Moscow of Nazi Foreign Minister Ribbentrop was the main reason for the start of the Second World War. All the leading countries are to a certain extent responsible for its outbreak. Each of them made fatal mistakes, arrogantly believing that they could outsmart others, secure unilateral advantages for themselves or stay away from the impending world catastrophe. And this short-sightedness, the refusal to create a collective security system cost millions of lives and tremendous losses.
Saying this, I by no means intend to take on the role of a judge, to accuse or acquit anyone, let alone initiate a new round of international information confrontation in the historical field that could set countries and peoples at loggerheads. I believe that it is academics with a wide representation of respected scientists from different countries of the world who should search for a balanced assessment of what happened. We all need the truth and objectivity. On my part, I have always encouraged my colleagues to build a calm, open and trust-based dialogue, to look at the common past in a self-critical and unbiased manner. Such an approach will make it possible not to repeat the errors committed back then and to ensure peaceful and successful development for years to come.
However, many of our partners are not yet ready for joint work. On the contrary, pursuing their goals, they increase the number and the scope of information attacks against our country, trying to make us provide excuses and feel guilty, and adopt thoroughly hypocritical and politically motivated declarations. Thus, for example, the resolution on the Importance of European Remembrance for the Future of Europe approved by the European Parliament on 19 September 2019 directly accused the USSR together with the Nazi Germany of unleashing the Second World War. Needless to say, there is no mention of Munich in it whatsoever.
I believe that such ‘paperwork’ – for I cannot call this resolution a document – which is clearly intended to provoke a scandal, is fraught with real and dangerous threats. Indeed, it was adopted by a highly respectable institution. And what does that show? Regrettably, this reveals a deliberate policy aimed at destroying the post-war world order whose creation was a matter of honour and responsibility for States a number of representatives of which voted today in favour of this deceitful resolution. Thus, they challenged the conclusions of the Nuremberg Tribunal and the efforts of the international community to create after the victorious 1945 universal international institutions. Let me remind you in this regard that the process of European integration itself leading to the establishment of relevant structures, including the European Parliament, became possible only due to the lessons learnt form the past and its accurate legal and political assessment. And those who deliberately put this consensus into question undermine the foundations of the entire post-war Europe.
Apart from posing a threat to the fundamental principles of the world order, this also raises certain moral and ethical issues. Desecrating and insulting the memory is mean. Meanness can be deliberate, hypocritical and pretty much intentional as in the situation when declarations commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War mention all participants in the anti-Hitler coalition except for the Soviet Union. Meanness can be cowardly as in the situation when monuments erected in honour of those who fought against Nazism are demolished and these shameful acts are justified by the false slogans of the fight against an unwelcome ideology and alleged occupation. Meanness can also be bloody as in the situation when those who come out against neo-Nazis and Bandera’s successors are killed and burned. Once again, meanness can have different manifestations, but this does not make it less disgusting.
Neglecting the lessons of history inevitably leads to a harsh payback. We will firmly uphold the truth based on documented historical facts. We will continue to be honest and impartial about the events of World War II. This includes a large-scale project to establish Russia’s largest collection of archival records, film and photo materials about the history of World War II and the pre‑war period.
Such work is already underway. Many new, recently discovered or declassified materials were also used in the preparation of this article. In this regard, I can state with all responsibility that there are no archive documents that would confirm the assumption that the USSR intended to start a preventive war against Germany. The Soviet military leadership indeed followed a doctrine according to which, in the event of aggression, the Red Army would promptly confront the enemy, go on the offensive and wage war on enemy territory. However, such strategic plans did not imply any intention to attack Germany first.
Of course, military planning documents, letters of instruction of Soviet and German headquarters are now available to historians. Finally, we know the true course of events. From the perspective of this knowledge, many argue about the actions, mistakes and misjudgment of the country’s military and political leadership. In this regard, I will say one thing: along with a huge flow of misinformation of various kinds, Soviet leaders also received true information about the upcoming Nazi aggression. And in the pre-war months, they took steps to improve the combat readiness of the country, including the secret recruitment of a part of those liable for military duty for military training and the redeployment of units and reserves from internal military districts to western borders.
The war did not come as a surprise, people were expecting it, preparing for it. But the Nazi attack was truly unprecedented in terms of its destructive power. On June 22, 1941, the Soviet Union faced the strongest, most mobilized and skilled army in the world with the industrial, economic and military potential of almost all Europe working for it. Not only the Wehrmacht, but also German satellites, military contingents of many other states of the European continent, took part in this deadly invasion.
The most serious military defeats in 1941 brought the country to the brink of catastrophe. Combat power and control had to be restored by extreme means, nation-wide mobilization and intensification of all efforts of the state and the people. In summer 1941, millions of citizens, hundreds of factories and industries began to be evacuated under enemy fire to the east of the country. The manufacture of weapons and munition, that had started to be supplied to the front already in the first military winter, was launched in the shortest possible time, and by 1943, the rates of military production of Germany and its allies were exceeded. Within six months, the Soviet people did something that seemed impossible. Both on the front lines and the home front. It is still hard to realize, understand and imagine what incredible efforts, courage, dedication these greatest achievements were worth.
The tremendous power of Soviet society, united by the desire to protect their native land, rose against the powerful, armed to the teeth, cold-blooded Nazi invading machine. It stood up to take revenge on the enemy, who had broken, trampled peaceful life, people’s plans and hopes.
Of course, fear, confusion and desperation were taking over some people during this terrible and bloody war. There were betrayal and desertion. The harsh split caused by the revolution and the Civil War, nihilism, mockery of national history, traditions and faith that the Bolsheviks tried to impose, especially in the first years after coming to power – all of this had its impact. But the general attitude of the absolute majority of Soviet citizens and our compatriots who found themselves abroad was different – to save and protect the Motherland. It was a real and irrepressible impulse. People were looking for support in true patriotic values.
The Nazi “strategists” were convinced that a huge multinational state could easily be brought to heel. They thought that the sudden outbreak of the war, its mercilessness and unbearable hardships would inevitably exacerbate inter-ethnic relations. And that the country could be split into pieces. Hitler clearly stated: “Our policy towards the peoples living in the vastness of Russia should be to promote any form of disagreement and division”.
But from the very first days, it was clear that the Nazi plan had failed. The Brest Fortress was protected to the last drop of blood by its defenders of more than 30 ethnicities. Throughout the war, the feat of the Soviet people knew no national boundaries – both in large-scale decisive battles and in the protection of every foothold, every meter of native land.
The Volga region and the Urals, Siberia and the Far East, the republics of Central Asia and Transcaucasia became home to millions of evacuees. Their residents shared everything they had and provided all the support they could. Friendship of peoples and mutual help became a real indestructible fortress for the enemy.
The Soviet Union and the Red Army, no matter what anyone is trying to prove today, made the main and crucial contribution to the defeat of Nazism. These were heroes who fought to the end surrounded by the enemy at Bialystok and Mogilev, Uman and Kiev, Vyazma and Kharkov. They launched attacks near Moscow and Stalingrad, Sevastopol and Odessa, Kursk and Smolensk. They liberated Warsaw, Belgrade, Vienna and Prague. They stormed Koenigsberg and Berlin.
We contend for genuine, unvarnished, or whitewashed truth about war. This national, human truth, which is hard, bitter and merciless, has been handed down to us by writers and poets who walked through fire and hell of front trials. For my generation, as well as for others, their honest and deep stories, novels, piercing trench prose and poems have left their mark in my soul forever. Honoring veterans who did everything they could for the Victory and remembering those who died on the battlefield has become our moral duty.
And today, the simple and great in its essence lines of Alexander Tvardovsky’s poem “I was killed near Rzhev …” dedicated to the participants of the bloody and brutal battle of the Great Patriotic War in the center of the Soviet-German front line are astonishing. Only in the battles for Rzhev and the Rzhevsky Salient from October 1941 to March 1943, the Red Army lost 1,154, 698 people, including wounded and missing. For the first time, I call out these terrible, tragic and far from complete figures collected from archive sources. I do it to honor the memory of the feat of known and nameless heroes, who for various reasons were undeservingly, and unfairly little talked about or not mentioned at all in the post-war years.
Let me cite you another document. This is a report of February 1954 on reparation from Germany by the Allied Commission on Reparations headed by Ivan Maisky. The Commission’s task was to define a formula according to which defeated Germany would have to pay for the damages sustained by the victor powers. The Commission concluded that “the number of soldier-days spent by Germany on the Soviet front is at least 10 times higher than on all other allied fronts. The Soviet front also had to handle four-fifths of German tanks and about two-thirds of German aircraft.” On the whole, the USSR accounted for about 75 percent of all military efforts undertaken by the anti-Hitler coalition. During the war period, the Red Army “ground up” 626 divisions of the Axis states, of which 508 were German.
On April 28, 1942, Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his address to the American nation: “These Russian forces have destroyed and are destroying more armed power of our enemies – troops, planes, tanks, and guns – than all the other United Nations put together”. Winston Churchill in his message to Joseph Stalin of September 27, 1944, wrote “that it is the Russian army that tore the guts out of the German military machine…”.
Such an assessment has resonated throughout the world. Because these words are the great truth, which no one doubted then. Almost 27 million Soviet citizens lost their lives on the fronts, in German prisons, starved to death and were bombed, died in ghettos and furnaces of the Nazi death camps. The USSR lost one in seven of its citizens, the UK lost one in 127, and the USA lost one in 320. Unfortunately, this figure of the Soviet Union’s hardest and grievous losses is not exhaustive. The painstaking work should be continued to restore the names and fates of all who have perished – Red Army soldiers, partisans, underground fighters, prisoners of war and concentration camps, and civilians killed by the death squads. It is our duty. And here, members of the search movement, military‑patriotic and volunteer associations, such projects as the electronic database “Pamyat Naroda”, which contains archival documents, play a special role. And, surely, close international cooperation is needed in such a common humanitarian task.
The efforts of all countries and peoples who fought against a common enemy resulted in victory. The British army protected its homeland from invasion, fought the Nazis and their satellites in the Mediterranean and North Africa. American and British troops liberated Italy and opened the Second Front. The US dealt powerful and crushing strikes against the aggressor in the Pacific Ocean. We remember the tremendous sacrifices made by the Chinese people and their great role in defeating Japanese militarists. Let us not forget the fighters of Fighting France, who did not fall for the shameful capitulation and continued to fight against the Nazis.
We will also always be grateful for the assistance rendered by the Allies in providing the Red Army with ammunition, raw materials, food and equipment. And that help was significant – about 7 percent of the total military production of the Soviet Union.
The core of the anti-Hitler coalition began to take shape immediately after the attack on the Soviet Union where the United States and Britain unconditionally supported it in the fight against Hitler’s Germany. At the Tehran conference in 1943, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill formed an alliance of great powers, agreed to elaborate coalition diplomacy and a joint strategy in the fight against a common deadly threat. The leaders of the Big Three had a clear understanding that the unification of industrial, resource and military capabilities of the USSR, the United States and the UK will give unchallenged supremacy over the enemy.
The Soviet Union fully fulfilled its obligations to its allies and always offered a helping hand. Thus, the Red Army supported the landing of the Anglo-American troops in Normandy by carrying out a large-scale Operation Bagration in Belarus. In January 1945, having broken through to the Oder River, it put an end to the last powerful offensive of the Wehrmacht on the Western Front in the Ardennes. Three months after the victory over Germany, the USSR, in full accordance with the Yalta agreements, declared war on Japan and defeated the million-strong Kwantung Army.
Back in July 1941, the Soviet leadership declared that the purpose of the War against fascist oppressors was not only the elimination of the threat looming over our country, but also help for all the peoples of Europe suffering under the yoke of German fascism. By the middle of 1944, the enemy was expelled from virtually all of the Soviet territory. However, the enemy had to be finished off in its lair. And so the Red Army started its liberation mission in Europe. It saved entire nations from destruction and enslavement, and from the horror of the Holocaust. They were saved at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives of Soviet soldiers.
It is also important not to forget about the enormous material assistance that the USSR provided to the liberated countries in eliminating the threat of hunger and in rebuilding their economies and infrastructure. That was being done at the time when ashes stretched for thousands of miles all the way from Brest to Moscow and the Volga. For instance, in May 1945, the Austrian government asked the USSR to provide assistance with food, as it “had no idea how to feed its population in the next seven weeks before the new harvest.” The state chancellor of the provisional government of the Austrian Republic Karl Renner described the consent of the Soviet leadership to send food as a saving act that the Austrians would never forget.
The Allies jointly established the International Military Tribunal to punish Nazi political and war criminals. Its decisions contained a clear legal qualification of crimes against humanity, such as genocide, ethnic and religious cleansing, anti-Semitism and xenophobia. Directly and unambiguously, the Nuremberg Tribunal also condemned the accomplices of the Nazis, collaborators of various kinds.
This shameful phenomenon manifested itself in all European countries. Such figures as Pétain, Quisling, Vlasov, Bandera, their henchmen and followers – though they were disguised as fighters for national independence or freedom from communism – are traitors and slaughterers. In inhumanity, they often exceeded their masters. In their desire to serve, as part of special punitive groups they willingly executed the most inhuman orders. They were responsible for such bloody events as the shootings of Babi Yar, the Volhynia massacre, burnt Khatyn, acts of destruction of Jews in Lithuania and Latvia.
Today as well, our position remains unchanged – there can be no excuse for the criminal acts of Nazi collaborators, there is no statute of limitations for them. It is therefore bewildering that in certain countries those who are smirched with cooperation with the Nazis are suddenly equated with the Second World War veterans. I believe that it is unacceptable to equate liberators with occupants. And I can only regard the glorification of Nazi collaborators as a betrayal of the memory of our fathers and grandfathers. A betrayal of the ideals that united peoples in the fight against Nazism.
At that time, the leaders of the USSR, the United States, and the UK faced, without exaggeration, a historic task. Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill represented the countries with different ideologies, state aspirations, interests, cultures, but demonstrated great political will, rose above the contradictions and preferences and put the true interests of peace at the forefront. As a result, they were able to come to an agreement and achieve a solution from which all of humanity has benefited.
The victorious powers left us a system that has become the quintessence of the intellectual and political quest of several centuries. A series of conferences – Tehran, Yalta, San Francisco and Potsdam – laid the foundation of a world that for 75 years had no global war, despite the sharpest contradictions.
Historical revisionism, the manifestations of which we now observe in the West, and primarily with regard to the subject of the Second World War and its outcome, is dangerous because it grossly and cynically distorts the understanding of the principles of peaceful development, laid down at the Yalta and San Francisco conferences in 1945. The major historic achievement of Yalta and other decisions of that time is the agreement to create a mechanism that would allow the leading powers to remain within the framework of diplomacy in resolving their differences.
The twentieth century brought large-scale and comprehensive global conflicts, and in 1945 the nuclear weapons capable of physically destroying the Earth also entered the scene. In other words, the settlement of disputes by force has become prohibitively dangerous. And the victors in the Second World War understood that. They understood and were aware of their own responsibility towards humanity.
The cautionary tale of the League of Nations was taken into account in 1945. The structure of the UN Security Council was developed in a way to make peace guarantees as concrete and effective as possible. That is how the institution of the permanent members of the Security Council and the right of the veto as their privilege and responsibility came into being.
A new global confrontation started almost immediately after the end of the Second World War and was at times very fierce. And the fact that the Cold War did not grow into the Third World War has become a clear testimony of the effectiveness of the agreements concluded by the Big Three. The rules of conduct agreed upon during the creation of the United Nations made it possible to further minimize risks and keep confrontation under control.
The calls that have been made quite often in recent years to abolish the veto power, to deny special opportunities to permanent members of the Security Council are actually irresponsible. After all, if that happens, the United Nations would in essence become the League of Nations – a meeting for empty talk without any leverage on the world processes. How it ended is well known. That is why the victorious powers approached the formation of the new system of the world order with utmost seriousness seeking to avoid repetition of the mistakes of their predecessors.
The creation of the modern system of international relations is one of the major outcomes of the Second World War. Even the most insurmountable contradictions – geopolitical, ideological, economic – do not prevent us from finding forms of peaceful coexistence and interaction, if there is the desire and will to do so. Today the world is going through quite a turbulent time. Everything is changing, from the global balance of power and influence to the social, economic and technological foundations of societies, nations and even continents. In the past epochs, shifts of such magnitude have almost never happened without major military conflicts. Without a power struggle to build a new global hierarchy. Thanks to the wisdom and farsightedness of the political figures of the Allied Powers, it was possible to create a system that has restrained from extreme manifestations of such objective competition, historically inherent in the world development.
It is a duty of ours – all those who take political responsibility and primarily representatives of the victorious powers in the Second World War – to guarantee that this system is maintained and improved. Today, as in 1945, it is important to demonstrate political will and discuss the future together. Our colleagues – Mr. Xi Jinping, Mr. Macron, Mr. Trump and Mr. Johnson – supported the Russian initiative to hold a meeting of the leaders of the five nuclear-weapon States, permanent members of the Security Council. We thank them for this and hope that such a face-to-face meeting could take place as soon as possible.
What is our vision of the agenda for the upcoming summit? First of all, in our opinion, it would be useful to discuss steps to develop collective principles in world affairs. To speak frankly about the issues of preserving peace, strengthening global and regional security, strategic arms control, as well as joint efforts in countering terrorism, extremism and other major challenges and threats.
A special item on the agenda of the meeting is the situation in the global economy. And above all, overcoming the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Our countries are taking unprecedented measures to protect the health and lives of people and to support citizens who have found themselves in difficult living situations. Our ability to work together and in concert, as real partners, will show how severe the impact of the pandemic will be, and how quickly the global economy will emerge from the recession. Moreover, it is unacceptable to turn the economy into an instrument of pressure and confrontation. Popular issues include environmental protection and combating climate change, as well as ensuring the security of the global information space.
The agenda proposed by Russia for the upcoming summit of the Five is extremely important and relevant both for our countries and for the entire world. And we have specific ideas and initiatives on all the items.
There can be no doubt that the summit of Russia, China, France, the United States, and the UK can play an important role in finding common answers to modern challenges and threats, and will demonstrate a common commitment to the spirit of alliance, to those high humanist ideals and values for which our fathers and grandfathers were fighting shoulder to shoulder.
Drawing on a shared historical memory, we can trust each other and must do so. That will serve as a solid basis for successful negotiations and concerted action for the sake of enhancing the stability and security on the planet and for the sake of prosperity and well-being of all States. Without exaggeration, it is our common duty and responsibility towards the entire world, towards the present and future generations.

I am sharing a video talk Az and I recorded on May 16, originally shared on Lada Ray Patreon! Keep in mind: this is a live, unedited and casual talk! It’s not structured like my webinars or articles. At around 31 min mark a super-cute little puppy makes an appearance 🙂
We are talking about many things, including the new resurgence of the Ukrainegate Burisma scandal and Joe/Hunter Biden Ukraine and China corruption.
We touch upon neoliberalism and what the classic liberalism was about.
Also, what it was like to live and have children in the Soviet Union.
And we discuss the new Trump vs Biden election spread, Biden seemingly up in states traditionally pro-republican. Of course, note that this is because of people’s dissatisfaction with the government’s handling of COVID, which is a worldwide phenomenon. And also note that it’s still very early and Trump is very resourceful!
If you like this casual, yet informative format, please give us a big thumbs up!
Reminder: it’s the star below this post on FT. And on YouTube, it’s 👍!

The Thinning of Veils Between Dimensions During the Earth Shift and What Happens When One Can’t Cope With It (ref. the Mystery of Doreen Virtue)
I personally like this format and I enjoy recording outdoors.
My plan is to go into higher-dimensional and perhaps, forbidden history topics, as well as into more interesting geopolitical secrets, in the future! We may be able to address some of your questions which didn’t make it into articles and webinars!
