On Thursday, May 29, 2014, the leaders of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus have signed the Eurasian Economic Agreement. This, first video of the newly launched EarthShift TV contains fresh information, in addition to Lada Ray’s original article, which went viral, analysing the global consequences of the Eurasian Union and new Eurasian currency Altyn. Discussed are: Lada’s predictions regarding gold, natural resources, USA and US dollar, Russia, China, Eurasia and EU; history of the new Eurasian currency Altyn and its origins; Cyprus banking crisis and its connection to Russia’s gold reserves; what are the real gold reserves of China, Russia, India and Kazakhstan; long cycles of human development; plus striking images of the mystical capital of Kazakhstan, Astana.

According to the Moscow Times (pro-Western, not a Putin supporter), “The Eurasian Economic Union agreement, signed by the leaders of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in the Kazakh capital of Astana, will come into force on Jan. 1, 2015. It envisages the gradual integration of the three former Soviet countries’ economies, establishing free trade, unbarred financial interaction and unhindered labor migration.
At the signing ceremony, President Vladimir Putin said, “Today we are creating a powerful center of gravity for economic development, a large regional market that unites more than 170 million people.”
He also stressed that the union’s combined territory is a hydrocarbon treasury, possessing a fifth of all global natural gas resources and 15 percent of all oil reserves.”
Breaking news: in addition to Armenia and Kyrgyzstan slanted to join Eurasian Union in 2015, Tadjikistan is also in line for joining.
Russia and China signed what is called the “Holy Grail gas deal” worth $400 bln. It guarantees the supply of Russian gas to China for 30 years. The Russia-China pipeline construction alone, associated with this deal, will be the largest construction project in the world. Currently, 70% of China’s energy needs are fulfilled by local coal. As a result, China is suffocating in harmful smog. China wants to move to the cleaner energy and Russian gas is providing this opportunity.
With the largest gas reserves in the world, Russia has plenty of gas to supply to China, as well as the EU. Presently, most of the Russian gas is purchased by the EU to feed its very large economy. However, half of Russia’s gas transit to the EU is being held hostage by the hostile Kiev regime managed directly by the US with EU’s help, and EU/US keep insisting on slapping sanctions against Russia. Because of pressures from the West, Russia has to re-assess its economic and geopolitical priorities. What the Western leaders are realizing too slowly is that Russia is holding all the cards.
I predicted this exact outcome from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis. The thing is that the myopic “leaders” in the EU and US misjudged Russian leadership. More disturbingly, they seriously overestimated their own value to Russia. Read the rest of this entry
On multiple prior occasions I have predicted that any sanctions against Russia by the West will only backfire, expediting Russia’s re-orientation to the East and the unavoidable re-molding of the Western financial/economic model.
Russia’s re-orientation and subsequent creation of the independent financial system is what the banksters of Wall Street and London City fear most. This will eventually result in a catastrophe for the US/UK and EU, except for those European countries that succeed in re-orienting their economies to the East. Meanwhile, Russia, China and other countries in the Eurasian space, will benefit tremendously. Read: Ukraine Part 7: Russia’s Geopolitics, USA’s Bluff and EU’s Big Mistake.
The US and EU can be proud: as a result of their aggressively provocative behavior and the double standards galore, they managed to expedite the process by at least ten years. Read the rest of this entry
