This is the latest from Donbass. Rumors have been circulating since August that Lugansk and Donetsk Republics were preparing a referendum to take place simultaneously with the local elections. These local elections will take place in DNR and LNR on October 18, 2015 pursuant to Minsk 2 agreements. Mayors of several key cities and heads of some towns are being elected.
The rumor that a new referendum to join Russia is to take place around this time was denied vehemently on several occasions by the head of Donetsk, Alexandr Zakharchenko.
It also has to be said that Donetsk is presently going through a power struggle at the top level. Speaker of the Donetsk parliament Andrey Purgin was recently replaced with Denis Pushilin. Rumors, spread undoubtedly by the Kiev side, that Purgin was arrested turned out false, but they generated a temporary confusion and turmoil in society, which was obviously the goal of this hoax. Certain questions about how it happened and why remain unanswered, although Andrey Purgin already announced that he and his allies were regrouping. While they aren’t participating in the current elections yet, they are in a soft opposition to the current government, exploring their options.
Purgin came out with some mild critical remarks about the current DNR government, calling it ‘recreation of the Yanukovich’s power structure.’ Zakharchenko has been very reserved about the Purgin situation, basically letting know that it is the issue of the parliament.
Purgin was (is) considered a more radical member of the DNR leadership. He was for the advancement of the DNR/LNR troops, taking back the entire Donbass and moving further, towards Kharkov and Kiev. This put him at odds with those who have been working on implementing Minsk 2 agreements, which basically freeze the conflicts.
Since last year, Zakharchenko and head Minsk 2 negotiator for DNR Denis Pushilin (now also the Donetsk parliament speaker) have been labeled by certain hot heads who wanted to continue fighting, as traitors and sleazebags. It is clear that Zakharchenko, Purgin and Pushilin want the same for their people: better life, peace and prosperity. However, they want to achieve it by absolutely different means.
Andrey Purgin announced that instead of running for office in these elections, he prefers to organize a grand social event on November 4th, which is called the Day of National Unity in Russia (As we see, Donbass has adopted all Russian holidays). He said that he is concentrating on rallying resources and volunteers to organize a grand Russian Orthodox event (Krestniy Hod) for the ‘Unity Day’ on November 4.
The Day of National Unity is one of the new Russian holidays. It reminds of the 16th century Time of Troubles and Polish aggression that resulted in occupation of Moscow, and how the country rallied at grassroots to throw out the aggressors. Purgin also announced that the hotheads I mentioned above shouldn’t expect him to go into a tough opposition to present authorities. He intends to cooperate, not fight. Wise words, in my view.
Incidentally, Andrey Purgin was at the very roots of the Donetsk People’s Republic. He was the one who proposed the term 10 years ago, well before the 2014 Kiev maidan.
Lugansk already went through its own internal power struggle between the head of LNR Plotnitsky and local Cossack commanders. The conflict was handled by Plotnitsky quietly and skillfully, proving his political mettle. Undoubtedly he had help and advice in settling this conflict. The re-shaping of the self-defence volunteer units into a regular army helped a lot.
Certain inner conflicts and misunderstandings are a natural development in such new, untested formations as DNR and LNR. The unpredictability of conflict situations diminishes as the new power structure finds its comfort zone and settles. Of course, due to the lack of political experience of these young republics, these conflicts may be mishandled in the information space. Due to the infowar time in which we live, the temporary confusion may result, but it all calms down in due time.
It has been clear from the very first referendum of May 11, 2014 that all Donbass wanted was to join Russia. When people went to the referendum to vote for independence from Ukraine, they really thought they were voting for joining Russia, following the Crimean example. About 90% or more voted for that. However, due to major geopolitical circumstances, it became impossible. I wrote about those circumstances previously on many occasions. And there is more on that below.
In the question of referendum, Donetsk and Lugansk appear to diverge. However, this may be for show.
A couple of days ago the head of Lugansk Republic Plotnitsky was asked whether a referendum to join Russia is being prepared in Lugansk. He replied that if people wanted to have a referendum and if they decided in the referendum to join Russia, the government and he, as head of LNR would honor the will of the people.
This is a very interesting statement. Basically, Plotnitsky is saying that the ball is in the people’s court. Whatever the people decide, he, as their public servant, will make happen.

Here are several most important things to keep in mind:
When the Ukraine crisis first began in January-February 2014 I said that Russia was interested in the entire Ukraine, or at least most of Ukraine, as a friendly state. Lugansk, or the entire Donbass joining Russia while the rest of Ukraine remains a US-controlled ukro-nazi mess, would not serve this purpose.
While DNR and LNR are still formally a part of Ukraine (although of course de-facto they are separate states), they are akin to a giant thorn in Kiev junta’s back. From the inside they are helping to change the entire set up of Ukraine, also helping weaken the US grip on Ukraine.
As you all know, since the beginning I had felt terrible for the people of Donbass, Odessa, Kharkov and other parts of Ukraine, who have to suffer daily from the inhumane actions of the Kiev ukro-nazis. It’s very hard on the simple citizens Donbass.
But the geopolitical reality is such that Donbass has no choice other than to continue acting as this thorn, until the status quo in Ukraine changes. You’ll all recall my predictions: there will be a shift and subsequent turnaround in Ukraine, to begin in 2016 and to be completed around 2018 (as usual, more in PREDICTIONS on top bar and in 2014 articles under UKRAINE category).
I haven’t changed my opinion since the beginning of 2014. Given the geopolitical situation, Russia is not in a position to admit Lugansk by itself, or LNR and DNR together, at this time, unless Kiev suddenly attacks Donetsk and Lugansk on all fronts, causing catastrophic destruction – and this won’t happen. EU will not let Kiev do that, plus, Ukraine army isn’t capable of any serious operation anyway. All they can do are some pinpricks in the form of occasional shelling of peaceful citizens, but even that they are unable to accomplish on any scale any more. Their hands are getting more and more tied, due to Russia’s skillful diplomacy of the past year and a half – incidentally, again exactly as I predicted.
Eventually, Lugansk and Donetsk, probably together with Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Kherson, Nikolaev, Dnepropetrovsk and Odessa, are likely to join Russia as a Novorossia autonomy, or an autonomy by another name. In that case, Pridnestrovie will also join Russia (something the Pridnestrovie citizens had been eagerly awaiting since 1991).
This may happen as Ukraine will start morphing and shrinking into a different entity closer to the end of this decade. Moldova is a big factor in this spread as well. But we are still a couple of years away from such changes.
However, promoting this referendum is a great bargaining chip. Whether LNR really makes it happen or not, by making such announcements Donbass gains more bargaining power vs. Kiev and EU.
DNR/LNR CURRENCY, RUSSIAN LANGUAGE, SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND PASSPORTS:
Donbass getting closer to Russia is a natural process. The possibility of DNR and LNR residents getting Russian passports is being actively discussed. The process has already begun. Below is a piece in Russian discussing this issue.
Because of Kiev’s financial blockade, initially both DNR and LNR had made several currencies – ruble, grivna, dollar and euro – equally admissible for payment. There was also an attempt to create their own independent currency, which has been scrapped. However, within half a year, ruble naturally pushed out other currencies. Presently, 80% of circulating currency in DNR and LNR are rubles.
LNR has just announced the introduction of the new auto license plates. These plates closely resemble Russian license plates.
Donbass has changed its holiday schedule to reflect the Russian holidays, children now study based on Russian school books and Russian language has made a full comeback to DNR/LNR schools. As we know, for 23 years before 2014, Russian language had been squeezed our of Ukrainian schools; twisted and falsified history was taught to children since early age. It still remains the case, and the anti-Russian propaganda is getting worse, in the rest of Ukraine.
Preview of the upcoming Vladimir Putin’s speech at the UNGA, and Putin’s new checkmate:
It promises to be a big event. I will try to post the actual speech on FT. As I said in the previous article about Erdogan and Assad, the US is cracking on Syria, changing its stance on Assad and fighting ISIL. This is due to the widespread failure of the US policy in the Middle East, now recognized by the US Congress; it is also due to unprecedented pressure US is experiencing from its allies, from Germany, UK, France and EU in general to Saudis and Israel.
The shift is so drastic that despite being on not-speaking terms, last Friday US Secretary of Defence had called Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu to offer an olive branch and attempt to get Russian cooperation on Syria.
It is expected that during Putin’s visit to New York US will try to negotiate for the Russian cooperation in the anti-ISIL coalition. However knowing Putin, I anticipate that he will use this opportunity to package Syria negotiations together with Ukraine and DNR/LNR. I expect both issues to be addressed simultaneously, regardless of how much US tries to avoid doing so. In these negotiations, Russia is holding all the good cards, but the US won’t give up easily. I’ll post my analysis after we hear more next week. Stay tuned!
FT NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
The New Khazarian Khaganate Earth Shift Report is coming out soon. I plan to release it next week.
I also plan a few surprise Earth Shift Reports. One of them will be about the new geopolitical faultline ripening in the Black Sea area. You’ve heard me mention Odessa in several of my previous articles. This is the city I am intimately familiar with. As a matter of fact, the entire Black Sea/Bessarabia/pre-Balkans area is where I grew up. I will explain the convoluted, sinister and very dangerous games being played in Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, Romania and Turkey, Odessa being the epicenter of the entire scheme.
In the beginning of August, 2015, I wrote this article: The Energy is Shifting! Together, We Have Averted the Worst Outcome! The worst outcome – a new world war – was averted because US was unable to create anti-Russia out of Ukraine the way they planned. However, the new Black Sea games may again put us on collision course with the global war.
As usual, I will provide my assessment and predictions. Stay tuned for the surprise Earth Shift Reports!

In several prior articles (a discussion which continues in the comment section of said articles) we had discussed how US used the Moon landing hoax in order to boost its international image, sway Europe and some other countries towards closer cooperation with it against Russia, and how this masterfully constructed lie contributed to the result of the Cold War.
A similar deviously constructed trap for Russia has been organized in Ukraine. It started as Kiev maidan and the illegal ukro-nazi coup, and continued as attempts to drag Russia into a direct military confrontation in Ukraine. Since they were unable to achieve that, plan B was Russia’s isolation and weakening/destruction of the Russian economy via sanctions. Isolation didn’t work either. But sanctions are still in place, and they will continue being in place for as long as Russia conducts her own independent policy. Russia certainly will continue doing so, which in fact means that sanctions will be on for as long as US is able to twist the arms of the EU countries such as France, Germany and Italy.
Recall that before the MH17 tragedy in E. Ukraine EU was extremely reluctant to start a new round of broader sanctions against Russia. To get EU off the fence, extreme measures were required. Such extreme incident was ‘conveniently’ provided by MH17 downing. Within two hours of the tragedy in E. Ukraine, Russia and Donbass self-defence were immediately accused by US State Dept spokesperson Jen Psaki of shooting down the civilian plane. US got this info, she said, from Facebook and Twitter. Within days of the MH17 tragedy, EU countries, like one, voted for broader sanctions against Russia.
The official report on the MH17 tragedy is to finally come out in October, a delay that in itself is extremely suspicious. Meanwhile, Russia and Donetsk Republic have already been tried and convicted by the Western media and governments.
The fallacy of the official Western party line is obvious even to a layman, albeit a sharp one. Listen to an excellent analysis of the MH17 tragedy and lies surrounding it by a concerned French citizen Thierry Andre Laurent-Pellet. He conducted his own investigation, covering pretty much all incongruities and lies in the official pre-reports and the investigation in general.
When you listen to this interview, recall my article from 2014 in which I reported about a whistleblower who came out with information that a Ukraine airforce pilot Captain Voloshin returned distraught from a flight around the time of the tragedy, confessing in a private conversation that he ‘shot down the wrong plane.’ Captain Voloshin disappeared later, as did the Spanish air traffic controller who worked at the time in Dnepropetrovsk air traffic control responsible for re-directing the Malaysia Airlaines plane into the dangerous war zone, and who tried to expose the truth about MH17 in his tweets. Here is the article in question: Ukraine’s Snowden: Whistleblower confirms MH17 was shot down by Ukraine.
Calibration Reading — Earth & Personal Shift — Earth Shift Predictions — Feng Shui
According to Kiev’s official data, as voiced by the Attorney General of Ukraine, since last year, eight thousand Ukraine military defected to the side of Donetsk and Lugansk Republics: five thousand policemen and three thousand combat personnel.
I previously wrote about high-profile defections from Ukraine. This is the latest. This high-ranking officer of the National Guard says he was given unlawful orders to install internationally banned land mines in E. Ukraine. When he refused and blew the whistle, he was fired and had to flee the country.
This new revelation is likely to open a floodgate of investigations into the inhumane and illegal practices of the Kiev junta in E. Ukraine. And this is just the beginning!
The newest revelations will do a lot to withdraw the EU support for the Kiev junta. After EU support is gone, it will be harder and harder for the US to justify theirs.
You often hear me spell out the position of the Russian government, Russian people and personally Vladimir Putin towards various issues, including Ukraine.
Throughout my many articles and specific PREDICTIONS, I have also predicted the sequence of the Ukraine events, which are materializing little by little, one of them being that Ukraine will eventually turn around to join Russia and Eurasian Union.
You also heard me predict that Russia would under no circumstances send troops to Ukraine or take a bait to start a hot war. In fact I predicted that Russia and Putin would do everything to create a roadmap for peaceful solution – and that they would succeed. I also emphasized Putin/Russia’s amicable and patient stance on Ukraine, which will long-term foster trust and understanding that Russia is Ukraine people’s true friend.
I also said that Russia would wait till Ukrainian people mature enough to understand that they got themselves into this no-way-out situation, allowing them to heal and shift their reality using inner resource on their own time.
I want you to hear the same predictions straight out of the mouth of the man who shapes and executes the policies and events we so often talk about.
At a meeting in Crimea, Vladimir Putin spoke about Ukraine and its future. I have translated this quote:
I am confident that despite all current difficulties, the situation in Ukraine will correct itself and Ukraine will again start developing, developing positively. Ukraine will eventually abandon the shameful practice which we are observing today, namely, when this whole huge European country has been placed under foreign management, when the key posts in the government and regions are taken over by foreign citizens. I think all this is humiliating for the Ukrainian people.
Undoubtedly, in time what is happening will receive the fair judgement of the Ukrainian people. Ukraine will get back on its feet to develop in a positive way and to build its future together with Russia.

My top recommendation – the best Novorossia News channel
(staffed and funded by volunteers and donations):
YouTube channel News-Front. It is the best source of up-to-date news from Donbass, Novorossia and Crimea. You have seen me sometimes translate or reference bits from this channel.
The only thing they have with embedded English subs is the 2-min daily Novorossia News Summary (with Elena Krasovskaya) – Rus: Сводка новостей Новороссии. Click on this link to access the playlist on their channel, or go to channel and scroll down till you see this title in Russian. Their subs aren’t super, but you get the idea.
They also have the following programs, but only in Russian (if anyone finds a good way of translating for YT, please do share as then everyone would be able to listen to this channel):
News. Our Crimea! – Rus: Новости. Крым наш!
Here is an example:
Great interview program called In Reality with Sergey Veselovsky – Rus: Программа “На Самом Деле”
Some interviews are with real residents of various areas of Ukraine, who dare to tell the truth of how they live, some with Novorossia soldiers and politicians, and others – with people internationally and experts.
News-Front also publishes very nitty-gritty and truthful documentaries about the Donbass war, including a lot of pretty graphic stuff. Those who want to see the magnitude of destruction and horror there, go to these playlists:
“Донбасс на линии огня” – Donbass in the Line of Fire
“Новороссия. Оружие победы” – Novorossia. A Weapon of Victory
Generally, there is precious little truth and real deal news translated into English from Novorossia and other parts. It is only the enthusiasts and volunteers such as myself and some others that make it happen.
I want to recommend to you the efforts of one such enthusiast and FuturisTrendcast friend, Nemo, who is originally from Russia and resides in Scandinavia. He just did an important translation, which I recommend everyone checks out.
For those who speak German, I think there is more truth available, as some Germans, including certain German media, as well as some Russians living there, engage in translating. I have to say that Germans are much more awake than people in the English-speaking world; however, their dissent gets suppressed all the time by their own government, working in tandem with the US forces.
Still, certain bits of truth make it to the German MSM. Under no circumstances can I say the same about the English-speaking MSM!
A couple of pieces with German translation – incidentally, these are also from News-Front DE (translated by German volunteers):
Students of Crimea respond to students of Ukraine:
Here are some latest telling statistics from Ukraine:
The latest poll shows that 84% of Ukrainians want Russian President Vladimir Putin as the leader of their country. This effectively means that the vast majority of Ukrainians understand into what kind of abyss the Kiev junta is leading them.
Despite the overwhelming anti-Russian and anti-Putin propaganda spread by Kiev and Ukraine MSM, the population isn’t blind. Ukrainian people, most of whom are tired of war and want peace, start recalling the Chechen conflict and its swift and brilliant resolution by Putin. At the time Putin came in, he had on his hands the devastating Chechen war and all of Russia with destroyed economy and depressed population. Back in the 90s, I remember some Russians telling me dejectedly that the Chechen war would never end – and those people weren’t simpletons; to many well-known business people and analysts the Chechen war at the time seemed like a perma-conflict with no way out.
The conflict in Ukraine, to those who are ruled by emotions and lack perspective, also seems like a conflict without resolution. But it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Back then, Putin found the right person whom he entrusted the leadership of Chechnya; the agreements and necessary deals were struck and kept, the place was rebuilt and the entire situation was reversed to the point that the majority of Chechens are presently some of the biggest Russian patriots.
It is no wonder that Ukrainians want Putin. They should take the ticket and get in line.
Another poll suggests that presently 61% of Ukrainians want to leave their country permanently. Just two years ago, polls showed that such high percentage of those who wanted to emigrate only existed among the young generation. Now the population in general, including those who work and the elderly, want to leave the country. (Both poll numbers are from this interview (Rus).)
I explained previously that once Ukraine separated from Russia in 1991, people stopped believing in their country. Very quickly after, the most educated, thinking and capable people left. The vacuum was filled with inferior element from western and central Ukraine, who were purposefully appointed to top positions and who systematically removed the old, deeply cherished cultural and inter-generational connections with Russia and the Russian world, substituting them with invented lies. All this process was orchestrated and directed from abroad, by those from the US, Canada, Poland, Romania, Lithuania and Germany who wanted revenge and destruction of Russia and the Russian World.
The population of Ukraine under USSR was 54 mln people. Before 2014 it officially decreased to 45 million. However, in the past 23 years of ‘nezalezhnost’ = independence, 5-7 million Ukrainians have been working in Russia and probably 1.5-2 million in the West. Crimea and Donbass secession decreased the population by another 5-7 million. Another 3 million or so are refugees that left Ukraine for Russia or any other country they could. Therefore, the real population of Ukraine is now no more than 30 million people – down from 54 million in 1990.
Another bit of news: those anti-junta politicians and journalists of various political views who escaped from Ukraine after the 2014 coup are starting to organize an alternative government in exile. The organization, whose first conference took place in Moscow, is called the ‘Fund for the Salvation of Ukraine.’ It is headed by the former PM of Ukraine under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov. Unlike Yanukovich, Azarov is remembered positively in Ukraine and beyond for the quiet, but productive work he had done for the country. These are some long overdue, awkward first steps, and the people behind this alternative government are the old Ukraine politicians, who generally still have a decent reputation, such as Azarov, Vladimir Oleynik (MP from western Ukraine, presently in exile in Russia) and Igor Markov (MP from Odessa, now also in exile). Because of that, they may be capable of uniting various forces around them.
The country needs a completely new crop of politicians, who would be able to lead it into the future. The old crop may not be up to this task, but at least it is moving along. Except for Igor Markov, who is a younger and rather capable politician, these old political hands can be good instructors, taking the new politicians under their wing and allowing them to learn. There has been a talk about such development. The fact that it’s moving along indicates that the junta is feeling the pinch and its end is getting closer.
Recall my timeline for Ukraine’s complete turnaround: 2016-18.
Also recall what I said many times before: Ukraine can only be rebuilt and prosper in a union with Russia. Any attempts at dealings and mergers with the West on any level will bring Ukraine to destruction. However, after what happened, Russia won’t rush saving Ukraine this time.
Ukraine will have to provide some pretty good guarantees that it can be trusted, one of them being a complete weeding out of all malignant weeds. By weeding I mean getting rid of ukro-nazis, Western-ruled MSM, unfriendly oligarchs and US influence. This will be quite a feat and it will take some time. Another difficulty is that there really are no politicians in Ukraine who can accomplish it. Only DNR and LNR so far have people who can bring things to fruition.
Ukraine will have to produce the kind of people who are a match to the formidable task ahead.
The only thing… what is now called Ukraine will most likely bear a different name in several years time.
Ask Lada 2. Russian Asset Seizure in Belgium and France: Does It Mean War?
All posts in this series will appear under CATEGORY: Ask Lada
Our reader and fellow blogger Nemo has asked this question in one of the previous articles.
Pre-history: Shortly before the Sochi Olympics Putin personally pardoned a former Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who was serving a sentence on official charges of tax evasion and money laundering. Charges that didn’t make it into the court verdict were much more serious: Khodorkovsky and his crony Lebedev were about to secretly sell-out strategic Russian oil assets over which they took control in the ’90s, during the wholesale looting of what was all of Russian people’s common property.
Khodorkovsky was literally about to board the plane to the US, where he was to make the deal of the century – sell his company Yukos to the US oil interests. In exchange, he was promised an easy election and post of the Russian president. The idea was for him to preside over the completion of the demolition of Russia. The process of the demolition of the country was stopped in its tracks by Putin, and Khodorkovsky’s handlers couldn’t wait to get back on the destructive mode.
However, in his arrogance Khodorkovsky didn’t realize how much the Russian government knew about his plans. He was arrested and tried on the superficial and easily provable money laundering charges.
The real story of Khodorkovsky’s plan and his exposure constitutes one of the main themes of my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER. Read the book here. Excerpts are here. I also write about Khdorkovsky and other Russian oligarchs in ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS. A Russian oligarch is also one of the main characters in my thriller GOLD TRAIN.
The biggest proponent and intermediary for Khodorkovsky’s early release was Germany, including personally Merkel, citing Khodorkovsky mother’s poor health and other humanitarian reasons. The condition for his release was that he wouldn’t go back into politics. Both Khodorkovsky and his German guarantors swore to that. But then again, Germany swore in 1989, as Gorbachev allowed Germany’s reunification (over USA’s objections!) and as Soviet troops pulled out of Germany, that the unified Germany wouldn’t be a part of NATO…
Of course, the moment Khodorkovsky was out of jail, he immediately started talking about running for Russian presidency, interfering in Ukraine and rejoicing over anti-Russian sanctions.
Another thing he and his cronies, some of whom are hiding in Israel and others in London, have done was to re-initiate a multi-billion-dollar lawsuit against Russian Federation for restitution to Yukos shareholders.
This lawsuit was attempted several times before and EU courts threw it out every time. This time, however, the entire EU and US jumped on it as if it was an anchor to which they needed to hang on for dear life.
What was different this time? Simply put – Ukraine, Crimea, Donbass and anti-Russian sanctions. Yukos ‘shareholders,’ in fact a lot of shadowy entities, most of which were hiding behind bogus fronts, have their own interests. Their goal is to try to squeeze as much money as possible out of Russia after the nationalization of Yukos, following Khodorkovsky’s conviction. They have judged correctly that this time the Hague court would look favorably upon their claim for political reasons, and they were right.
No question, this lawsuit was suggested by the US and coordinated with the EU – the US fingerprints are all over its timing. Shortly after filing, the court in Hague delivers verdict: Russia is to pay Yukos shareholders $50 bln. Russia’s reply: we won’t abide by the decision of the court we don’t recognize.
As a result, Russian property and asset arrests and seizures began in France and Belgium. The amount cited is so far $1.3 bln. These include: arrests of bank accounts of the Russian companies with any stake by the Russian State, such as Rosneft; Russian Orthodox Church properties; Russian embassy, EU/Council of Europe representation diplomatic accounts.
Diplomatic accounts are illegal to seize in any country. If Russia wanted to escalate, such act could be construed as a declaration of war. Both France and Belgium ‘apologized,’ saying they have an absolutely and totally independent legal system; as such, they ‘didn’t know’ of the diplomatic accounts being seized and that they would release them.
Seizure of the Russian Orthodox Church property (such as Russian Orthodox places of worship) isn’t just illegal, since it’s not a property of the Russian State, but also despicable from the human and spiritual standpoint. It’s low even for them. Let’s recall that a similar war on Russian Orthodox Church property and threats against priests are taking place in Ukraine. All this appears to be a very well-coordinated action – and as my readers know, I am non-religious and therefore my point of view is neutral and detached. Read: Pope Francis and World Religions – Karma and Consciousness.
As to the property of the Russian banks and Russian companies, it’s more complicated. At present, Lavrov and other ministers announced they will use all legal means necessary to protest this decision and that companies can feel free to file claims in the Russian court, in return for which Russian court can seize appropriate assets of foreign countries in Russia.
Why Belgium and France?
This is a trial run, for now. They want to see how far they can get and what Russia’s response will be.
It’s interesting that at the very same time during the St. Pete Economic Forum, dozens of business leaders from all over Europe tripped all over themselves to assure Russia they wanted to continue doing business. Afraid for their properties in Russia? German business, as usual, was some of the most active during St. Pete forum.
Why is it being done?
Let’s face it, my early 2014 predictions that US/EU won’t achieve their goals in Ukraine, are coming true. Ukraine isn’t working out for them the way they wanted. Moreover, anti-Russian sanctions aren’t working either. Recall my prediction that in the long-run sanctions will be beneficial to Russia as they will stimulate sovereign innovation and production.
Let’s also face it, certain forces in the US and EU are livid. They can’t accept that things didn’t go their way and they want revenge. The pinprick of the Yukos decision is one of those pinpricks Russia, unfortunately, has to endure. Certainly, $50 bln isn’t a huge blow for Russia. Pinprick it is. It’s also a test: how will they respond? Can we dislodge them by doing it? Will Putin lose his cool?
And what if there are many other pinpricks coming at Russia at the same time? Can we make Russians completely lose it if we prick them from all directions? Let me remind everyone that that’s how WWI and WWII started – lots of humiliating pinpricks, resulting in countries losing their cool.
But Putin’s Russia isn’t Hitler’s Germany or Austria-Hungary.
That’s why all these NATO drills, deployment of thousands of tanks and other heavy machinery to Russia’s borders in Eastern Europe. It’s a bigger pinprick. Macedonia’s (FYROM) recent announcement that it will only allow Turkish Stream through its territory if EU agrees to it – is another pinprick. For more on what happened lately in Macedonia see: Macedonia Coup Attempt – War Against Russia & China (LRL12) and my upcoming LRL14 episode about Camp Bondsteel and Kosovo. Subscribe to Lada Ray Channel to keep on top of new videos.
However, this is still not all. The new attempted ‘electric maidan’ in Armenia (under the pretext of 16-17% hike in the price of electricity!) is yet another pinprick.
And the crowning pinprick achievement: Saakashvili as the governor of Odessa and subsequent attempts by Ukraine and Romania to re-ignite the Pridnestrovie conflict! I will soon have new LadaRayLive analytical episodes about that. Stay tuned for these new revelations.
Everything is going the way I predicted. I warned from the start that US would not accept defeat, and wouldn’t look quietly as its power and dollar dominance are slipping away. Unlike the USSR in 1991, which disbanded quietly and peacefully, It would fight tooth and claw, trying to drag everyone with it into the abyss. I also said that USA’s prime directive is not only to weaken Russia and EU, but also put a wedge between the two, especially, between the what was a newly thriving relationship between Russia and Germany.
Will Russia lose her cool because of these pinpricks? Nope. Russia, as predicted from the beginning, will again achieve a slow change in her favor through quiet and peaceful means.

Kiev Junta Implosion: Ukraine Deputy Defence Minister and Other High-Profile Defections to Lugansk and Donetsk
Kiev Junta Implosion: Ukraine Deputy Defence Minister and other high-profile insiders defect to Lugansk and Donetsk.
In the past few days, there was a wave of elite defections from Kiev to Donbass. The highest profile was the defection of General Александр Коломиец (Alexandr Kolomiyets), ex-deputy defence minister of Ukraine and a number of senior officers. They joined the Donetsk Republic.
He also said that his family had death threats and he had to secretly move them from Kiev. He also said that many of his former colleagues call him to ask how they could defect as well; however, they are afraid for their families’ lives. His prediction is that soon there will be an exodus from Kiev and many would want to come back to Donbass.
He spoke with many of the generals and they all are against this war. But since anyone who disagrees could be arrested, kidnapped or worse, killed, they just sit quietly. Mostly, the war is conducted by nazis and criminals, he said, not by regular troops.
Also defected to Lugansk Republic:
Oleg Chernousov, Head of the Lugansk Oblast Customs Services (position occupied on the Kiev junta side), citing the impossibility of working with the illegal junta full of bandits and killers of peaceful citizens: Press Conference
Brothers Miroshnichenko, both originally from Lugansk: one was an officer of external intelligence services of Ukraine and another – a diplomat, who worked at the Ukraine embassy in Paris: Press Conference
During their press conference brothers explained that they were preparing for the defection for quite some time, as they had to coordinate their simultaneous escape from Paris and Kiev, as well as get their families out of harms way. They returned to their native Lugansk, where they also have family, because they couldn’t work for the junta that was killing their people. The attitude towards those who are originally from Donbass is very bad in Ukraine and Kiev, they said, and they were treated as second class citizens, despite their positions.
They also said that many colleagues want to follow them, but most are either afraid or hope to stay for another year or two till they get their pensions, and then return (LR: big mistake!). They also predict an upcoming avalanche of defections from the Kiev junta as people get fed up.
The intelligence officer also discussed MH17. He said that they were never advised who really shot down the plane, but the entire Ukraine’s intelligence was strictly instructed to construct a narrative blaming Russia and concoct bogus evidence that Russia shot down MH17.
LR: As the junta’s end nears, more and more of those who work for it today, will see the writing on the wall. The rats will start abandoning the ship. It all goes according to plan. By 2016-2018, Ukraine will be a different country, according to predictions.
Let’s recall that I also predicted in 2014 that Ukraine army would retain allegiances to the USSR and Russia, and it will not want to fight against their own people. Unfortunately, the fascist regime in power, supported by the US and EU, successfully intimidated and pulled the wool over many people’s eyes. Nevertheless, people are starting to awaken and we see some movement in the right direction.

Over one thousand Ukraine citizens gathered in front of the US embassy in Kiev and attempted to pass on to the embassy workers their petition to Barack Obama and the American people, demanding that US stop igniting civil war and interfering in Ukrainian affairs; they also demanded the removal of US troops and weapons from Ukraine. No embassy worker came out to them and guards refused to take their petition. They resorted to gluing the petition to the embassy wall.
Posters in the video below and speeches are in Ukrainian. Posters say: “USA = War,” “USA – out of Ukraine,” “USA invaded Ukraine,” “Donbass.” They chant: “Yankee go home” and “Out of Ukraine!”
Notice how many people are hiding their faces from cameras!
I also want to point out how INCREDIBLY meek and polite all the people are. The ring leader, young woman in pink asking the guard to accept her petition, is especially polite and nice. She keeps saying “Bud’ laska,” which means in Ukrainian ‘please,’ or more precisely, ‘be so kind.’ No one says a word out of the norm, no one does anything even remotely unseemly. After neatly gluing the petition to the embassy wall, they even wipe the wall from any excess glue and polish it to perfection!!! See the woman talking to the guard at 5:15; see them wiping down the wall at 8:10.
I want everyone to note all that, because in the next video of the June 11, 2015 attack on the Russian consulate in Kharkov you will see the opposite picture!
Added: by reader request, here is a summary of the lady in pink speech and exchange with the guard:
In the beginning of the video she says, addressing the tall, blank US embassy wall: “It won’t be as you want. It will be the way it has to be. Ukraine! Yankee go home! Soldiers of USA are raping Ukraine, etc.” People also chant continuously: “Out!” and “Come out to face the people!”
The lady in pink is asking the guard how she could pass on the petition. He says she can’t. She asks why not. No clear answer – just can’t. If not, can we give it to you? He says he won’t take it. She says, you must have some channels of communication with those inside, please ask someone to come out. He says he won’t do it. She must have said ‘be so kind’ about 10-20 times during this super-polite inquiry. Then she says, fine, then we just want to leave it here, by the door. She goes on, “Does any Ukrainian here have Scotch?” Since no one replies, she gets the glue stick out of her purse and they glue the petition to the wall.
The top of the petition sheet, with a fist on it, has two words, which together represent a play on words. They sound the same in both Russian and Ukrainian: “pravda” means ‘truth’ as one word. When it’s 2 words: ‘prav’ + ‘da’ as on the sheet, it means ‘I am in the right’ + ‘yes.’ I just gave you a glimpse of how the word ‘pravda’ was formed in the fist place. 😉
Notice how many English words it takes me to transcribe the meaning of one all-encompassing short word ‘pravda.’ And they say that Russian words are too long and complex, which hinders the development of the language and the nation! This is why, as one linguistical theory still repeated till today postulates, US and UK, with their shorter English words, were able to overtake Russia and USSR. Those who read my blog, know that’s all ‘bull crap in chef’s salad.’
This obviously is yet another conspiracy to try to make Russians feel inferior – a feat that actually temporarily succeeded – but not any more.
The linguistical conspiracy that I am unraveling now, along with related historical conspiracy, has roots in processes that took place 1000-300 years ago in Europe and Russia. I am deep into investigation and reconstruction of those events. I will happily share the results of my findings with all once my study is complete.
Oh, and please remind me to tell you all the real etymology of the English word ‘truth,’ as well as words such as ‘lady,’ ‘lad,’ ‘Scotland,’ ‘London.’ You are gonna love it! I personally find it very funny. But no spoilers!

Video of the rally in front of the US embassy in Kiev:
I didn’t want to post the video below because it’s too disgusting and disturbing. But I think it’s necessary to show what is really going on in Ukraine and what dark forces have taken it over. Notice the contrast with the excessively polite and meek protest in the first video. These thugs, unlike the peaceful people in the first video, aren’t hiding their faces. They obviously don’t have anything to fear – people fear them. Also notice that there are very few people in Kharkov, but the destruction and mayhem they cause is huge; their threat is so extreme that UN emergency retrieval vehicles are sent!
Russia celebrated The Russia Day on June 12. This is a new holiday, established after 1991. I can’t say I personally care for it, but it is widely celebrated. On this day, a gang of Ukrainian extremists gathered in front of the Russian consulate in Kharkov and attacked/vandalized the building. The police made some weak attempts to protect those who tried to exit, but did nothing to prevent vandalism. Emergency UN vehicles had to pick up and whisk away any consulate workers who happened to be stranded inside. This is the second attack on the same Kharkov consulate in one year; also, last year there was an attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev.
It is well-known that Kharkov, together with Odessa, are two of the most pro-Russian cities in the left-over Ukraine territory; therefore, the Kiev junta makes a special effort to invade the city with ukro-nazi thugs in order to intimidate the population and shift the balance of power. See the very educational and telling footage below for details.
The thugs, who throw paint at the building and who try to attack cars, yell mostly IN RUSSIAN (note that in the video above everything was in UKRAINIAN), except some phrases in poor English. This is done on purpose – to stick it, so to speak. The message is: ‘See, we have successfully created anti-Russia out of Kharkov, where those who speak your language hate you.’ Therefore, we are dealing here with the most disgusting dregs of society and with the most destructive agenda.
There are very rude words on the asphalt mentioning Putin, which I won’t translate.
They yell in a mix of Russian and broken English, while throwing rocks and paint at the consulate building and cars: “Where are the UN peacekeepers? Shame! Where is the help we are looking for? We (!?) are the peacekeepers in Donbass. Shame on you, we need help (LR: they are right on that count; they really do need a lot of help – of the psychiatric variety). Where is the NATO contingent (!) we are waiting for? We are disappointed in police and SBU (LR: for not letting them destroy the Russian consulate and kill everyone there). Where are the peacekeepers in Donetsk and Lugansk? Show the whole world, show to Putin that he is mother***er (AGAIN IN RUSSIAN). Pay attention at 4:03 – one of these geniuses says, perhaps thinking it sounds profound: “If you have to make peace with terrorists, make peace with ISIS.”

In January 2015 I wrote about possible false flags in Ukraine. Just recently we discussed the potential Chernobyl 2.0 catastrophe in Ukraine as the radioactive woods around Chernobyl caught on fire, something the firemen were extinguishing without proper gear and protection. If Chernobyl 2.0 got out of control, this would have been a continent-wide problem, especially for the nearby Kiev and the EU, due to prevailing continental winds. It seems Kiev either managed to control the fire, or simply hushed it up (and we know who helped them to do the latter).
But now everyone, including EU, is worried about the new occurrence: since yesterday, a giant oil and gas depot is burning near Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Fire has been raging for over 24 hours and so far the firefighters are powerless to stop it. One section of the oil depot, with 17 oil reservoirs, has already been destroyed and the fire spread to the section No 2. As of yesterday: more than one half of oil reservoirs already burned down; 1 person died, scores wounded.
The sky is black with soot and smoke, people are told to wear damp cloths over their faces, but little else is being explained to them. The situation is dire. Local residents are being evacuated in the 2 km radius and it may be expanded to 10 km.
To add insult to injury, a giant Ukraine arms depot (Ukraine army arsenal) is located only 50 meters from the burning oil depot. Next to all this is located a natural gas pipeline and gas storage depot… And don’t ask what kind of genius placed these three next to each other!
According to experts, if the fire reaches gas papeline and gas reservoirs, there will be a giant explosion. And how will the military arsenal nearby react? It’s anyone’s guess. Kiev, population nearly 3 mln, is located just 20 or so km from there and it will be in direct harm’s way.
Meanwhile, EU is bracing itself for possible acid rains as a result of the heavy black soot rising high into the sky.
Is anyone surprised? Not me. This should have been expected. I predict that more Ukraine catastrophes, whether real false flags or simply accidental – man-made or natural – disasters will continue taking place.
All this is happening in Ukraine as a direct result of the civil war, brutal violence, gross mismanagement and country-wide collapse. These are all direct and predictable consequences of the February 22, 2014 violent coup by Ukraine oligarchs and ukro-nazis, backed by the West. The current power in Kiev runs exclusively on violence, hatred and denial; plus, corruption, betrayal of the country’s interests and wholesale theft of the few remaining Ukrainian assets and resources to foreign interests. The only result of such intentions can be self-destruction. What is now in Kiev is not a government – it’s a demolition crew, working hard to destroy what little is left of the poor Ukraine, on orders from Washington.
Unfortunately, after ukro-nazi regime killed off, threw in jail or chased out of the country all honest and smart people, there is no one left to protest or to even understand what’s really going on. As such, Ukrainians are meekly following their path to the slaughter house, organized for them by the enemies, both foreign and domestic (and we all know who those are).
I predicted back in 2014 that Ukraine would be squeezed out of all juices and tossed off like that useless dry lemon skin… And here it is. Incidentally, EU is already indicating it’s tired of Ukraine (and, frankly, I don’t blame them), saying they can’t continue paying for it… Again, as predicted in 2014! More in PREDICTIONS on top bar.
Here are some of the videos of the fire:
Ukraine and the EU may suffer from acid rain, following a huge blaze at an oil and gas storage facility near Kiev. Local residents described to RT a Silent Hill-like picture of the area, saying that black sky, rain and smoke are everywhere. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/8ofn8p
The evacuation of weapons from the Ukraine army arsenal located in the Vasilkovsky region of the Kiev oblast has begun, according to authorities. The giant arms depot is located 50 meters from the burning oil depot.
The very latest info and video from RT!
Huge plumes of black smoke billow from burning oil depot near Kiev. Published on Jun 9, 2015
A massive fire has been raging at a Ukrainian oil depot on the outskirts of Kiev. It has triggered a series of explosions that reportedly killed up to four people. The Ukrainian authorities have confirmed three firefighters were among the fatalities. There are fears the toxic fumes could now threaten locals in Kiev.

Russian defence contractor and BUK launch system manufacturer Almaz-Antey completed its own investigation into the MH17 downing in Ukraine in July, 2014. Ukraine denied the responsibility for the attack on the civilian plane en route from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, blaming intermittently the Donbass self-defence and Russia. Nearly 300 people died as a result of the tragedy.
The BUK manufacturer has released the results of its independent investigation, which show that the 9M38-M1 surface-to-air missile from the M1 BUK system was used to shoot down the plane. The missile was produced until the 1990s and Almaz factories discontinued it in 1999. The Almaz-Antey CEO Yan Novikov confirmed that M1 BUK missiles were not delivered to anyone in the 21st century. Moreover, the Russian Army has long retired these older missiles, having been equipped with the new generation weapons. However, M1 is precisely the kind of BUK that is abundant in today’s Ukrainian armed forces.
The Almaz-Antey investigation also confirms that the trajectory of the missile is consistent with the location which at the time of the shoot-down was under Ukrainian (aka, Kiev junta) control. The missile was shot from the neighborhood of the Zaroshchenskoe village, controlled at the time by Kiev. This means that the Donbass self-defence was telling the truth that they had nothing to do with the tragedy.
Almaz-Antey has passed its findings to the MH17 international investigators. In response, Ukraine continues denying its involvement, putting all the blame on the Donbass self-defence and present leadership of the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics.
To prove its findings in action, Almaz-Antey proposes a real-life demo reconstruction of the event. The CEO of Almaz also notes that two US satellites were flying above the sector of E. Ukraine in question during MH17 shoot-down; however, to this day US refused to release the footage in its possession.
The Almaz investigation notes that MH17 could have been additionally damaged by the air-to-air missile from the flying nearby Ukrainian attack aircraft SU-25.
Western double standards: Almaz-Antey has been under EU and US sanctions since MH17 tragedy, based on Ukraine and USA’s accusation that Russia and Donbass self-defence shot down the Malaysian Airlines plane.

Not that it’s news to anyone that #Soros’s greedy claws and corrupt mind have been leached onto #Ukraine along with those of his neocon friends #Nuland, #McCain and others, but it’s nice to see a clear, tangible proof in the form of emails.
Ukrainian hacker group #CyberBerkut claims to have emails revealing billionaire George Soros’s close involvement in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia over the past year. In these emails, Soros provides anti-Russian ‘counseling’ and political/financial advice to the Kiev junta and US governments, as well as NATO. He allegedly advises US to provide lethal military hardware to Ukraine and NATO to train Ukraine troops on Romanian territory. He also advises to manipulate the perception of financial stability in the region.

How did billionaire ‘chocolate king’ Petr Poroshenko manage to grow his fortune 7-fold in one year, while being Ukraine’s president? This is at the same time his country is in a state of civil war, unable to pay off its debt and about to declare default, poverty is overwhelming, pensions are cut, inflation reaches 270% and grivna is in free fall. Poroshenko is also the only Ukraine oligarch to increase his assets – all other oligarchs have lost during 2014-2015.

2014 Photo Op. Victoria Nuland, Assistant US Secretary of State in charge of Eurasia, gives out cookies to anti-Yanukovich euro-maidan protesters in Kiev – a direct interference of a foreign official in the affairs of a sovereign country. Yanukovich is to be soon unseated as legitimately elected president of Ukraine and forced to flee as a result of the February 22, 2014 coup.
Kiev, 2014. Victoria Nuland and US ambassador to Ukraine Pyatt give out bread and hamburgers to Ukraine’s Berkut police. Just a few days later these same policemen will be burned, beaten and humiliated by ‘peaceful euro-maidan protesters.’ In December of 2013, Nuland famously bragged to the Washington Press Club that US spent $5 billion to ‘subvert Ukraine’ in its bid to weaken and sabotage Russia.
Nuland and McCain with Ukrainian politician Oleh Tyahnibok (top, lower left; Russian: Oleg Tyagnibok), direct follower of Hitler and heir to ukro-nazis Bandera and Shukhevich.
THE REAL SOURCE OF VICTORIA NULAND’S RUSSOPHOBIA: ‘EXCEPTIONAL’ AMERICAN IN 1982 SOVIET ODESSA
I left, perhaps the juiciest (and for me, the funniest) bit for last. To many people out there, Victoria Nuland, the woman who arrogantly and carelessly admitted in December 2013 that US spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine and create anti-Russia out of it; the woman who orchestrated the Kiev maidan and violent coup; the woman who with a flick of her wrist dismissed and appointed Ukraine governments; the woman who said ‘f*ck Europe’ – is one scary American Zionist and neocon. To most, she is known as Assistant US State Secretary in charge of Eurasia. Her job is to go around subverting countries, organizing violent coups and instigating color revolutions.
But very few realize that she is in fact a small-minded, stuck up little b*tch who never grew up and who always enjoyed humiliating others. Oh, you know I wouldn’t say something like this lightly. I’ve known she is exactly that due to the energy she emanates and due to her calibration, which to some people seems too esoteric. Now I’ve got tangible proof – and it’s to die for!
You heard me right! Just like in the case of Poroshenko and his criminal daddy, it all goes back to Odessa, the city of my childhood. The story below references a well-known international young pioneer camp in Odessa. Summer camps for children were called ‘pioneer camps’ in the USSR. The camp was called Molodaya Gvardia (English: The Young Guard, reference to the young Komsomol/Communist members during the 1918 Civil War, who fought bravely). I knew that camp: it was located on the beach at the far-away outskirts of the city. I’ve never gone there myself, since I grew up five minutes from the beach and since I always preferred to travel and explore for my summer vacation. The story below mentions semechki, which means ‘roasted sunflower seeds’ – remember I once mentioned on FuturisTrendcast that semechki is Russians and Ukrainians’ favorite snack. Like popcorn for Americans, albeit healthier.
Russian author, Inna Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva, tells this story:
“It happened in 1982. I worked as a children’s camp guide (Russian: pioner vozhataya) at Molodaya Gvardia in Odessa. Sorry to say, but I had a huge fight in which blood was drawn, with one American girl. She was also a camp guide who came from the US as part of an exchange program. I once caught her entertaining herself by throwing semechki in the dirt under her feet and laughing when little Ukrainian kids picked up and ate these dirty semechki. I remembered forever the name of that b*tch. She was called Vicky. For that fight I received a public Komsomol reprimand and they threw me out of camp.
Earlier today, I read with great surprise in Nuland’s bio that she worked in 1982 in Odessa’s Molodaya Gvardia as pioner vozhataya, being part of the exchange program, and that her impressions of the USSR were of the most negative kind. I always thought I did the right thing giving her that thrashing. I haven’t regretted it then and don’t regret today. Not enough though; should’ve given her more.”

New documentary alert! Another recent Russian documentary that is highly recommended and must watch. This film is so good that I simply have to tell my readers about it!
Крым. Путь на Родину. Документальный фильм Андрея Кондрашова
Crimea. Road to Motherland (aka, Way Back Home). Film by Andrey Kondrashov
The film includes an eye-opening reconstruction of the events on Kiev maidan and how the participants of the Kiev anti-maidan from Crimea, who came to express their viewpoint, were brutally hunted down and eliminated (very little known and remembered violent suppression of an alternative point of view by the Ukrainian beacon of Western democracy). Events leading up to Crimea’s vote for independence, including attempts by well-trained thugs from Kiev maidan and groups of radical local Tatars to take over Crimea, how unarmed people rose against armed Ukrainian SBU and army, the appearance of the “little green men” and their role, how Ukrainian army switched to the Russian side; to top it all off, operation ‘Yanukovich’ – how Ukraine president had 30 minutes to live and how he was whisked away. The whole movie is punctuated with candid and super-revealing interviews with Vladimir Putin, who tells the truth as it is about his personal role and personal control over the Crimea events (incidentally, as I predicted from the start).
Way better than most thrillers! 2.5 hours watched with dated breath. 7 million have already watched this film on YT. Honestly, the best documentary I have seen.
Russian version and the one with English subs are below. I hope I’ll be able to include parts of it with my translation in one of the future Earth Shift Reports. Stay tuned!

This article is part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON
On April 10th Odessa celebrated 71st anniversary of the liberation of the city from the German Nazis and associated Romanian invaders. Traditionally, the holiday is celebrated with mass parades, flowers, songs and red banners, since the city was liberated by the Soviet Army. People also wear yellow-and-black-striped Georgievskaya Lentochka (band). The celebrations are a big deal.
Odessa paid dearly for the invasion, including a water-deprived, bloody siege and occupation. As a result, Odessa became one of the 4 original Hero Cities of the Soviet Union, together with Moscow, Stalingrad and Leningrad (St. Pete). There is a movie called “Zhazhda” – “Thirst,” about the siege and a heroic raid by the marines to give water to the water-starved city.
Ukraine is aggressively re-writing history! On April 9, the Kiev Rada adopted a law equating communism with fascism and banning all communist and Soviet related symbology, including the ‘Great Victory Banner’ usually displayed during Victory Day celebrations. The ban also included the traditional Georgievskaya Band. Armed nationalists from Kiev warned that they would be descending onto Odessa and that anyone who came out with traditional symbols would be sorry.
People in Odessa are scared, but not scared enough to stay home.
Ukraine president Poroshenko came to Odessa on April 10 and was greeted with: “Fascist won’t pass.” Video:
In this video Poroshenko is shown making a speech at the iconic Odessa Port. In it he says that Odessa has greeted him very hospitably and that it has become a truly pro-Ukrainian city (last time he was in Odessa he announced Odessa had become a true Bandera (ukro-nazi) city). Meanwhile, the video shows people chanting, “Fascists, fascists,” in the background. Poroshenko says that Odessa now greets well the ATO (anti-Donbass military operation) soldiers – and the next snippet obligingly shows the crowd chanting: “Long live the Soviet Army” and “Odessa is the Hero City.”
Several days before April 10, over 40 people were arrested in Odessa, most of them while simply walking on the street. They weren’t shown any IDs or explained what they were arrested for. Later, SBU went to these people’s homes and ‘found’ cell phones, various random items SBU said were being used to make bombs, Russian flags (sure, terrorists would actually parade Russian flags), and those extremely dangerous Georgievskaya Bands.
This is what that dangerous anti-Ukrainian item, aka, Georgievskaya Band, looks like. It is worn to commemorate the sacrifice of the Soviet army during the Great War (WWII), including the sacrifice of Ukrainians:
Clearly, those who are afraid of a little piece of fabric must be really insecure.
This is how local SBU was preparing for Poroshenko’s visit. All arrested were accused of terrorism. Video of one such street arrest:

The damning video below shows a training session in Kiev, Ukraine, for the Ukraine army/national guard soldiers. This American, who explains that he used to work in the US, rehabilitating the worst drug addicts and axe murderers, says he ‘believes’ in people. “No feelings in war,” he repeats like a mantra. This is brainwashing at its best, as many of us have suspected all along. It has been suspected for the longest time that Americans are using all kinds of open brainwashing and MK ultra techniques on Ukrainians, and no doubt, on other Eastern Europeans. Finally, the evidence is coming out!
“Your senses have to be fully alert, but no feelings and emotions” (yes, god forbid you feel sorry or remorseful for the children you’ve killed in Donbass). This is a nazi killing machine preparation protocol in action!
The whole thing is in English, plus the translator is providing Russian translation. In the background, you can see the poster reading: “Believing in yourself, believing in Ukraine.” A very American poster, I must say, as no one talks like that in Ukraine!
The poster is also in Russian, not Ukrainian, which proves another thing a lot of Russian analysts have been pointing out: US is bent on creating ANTI-RUSSIA in Ukraine, using Russians and Russian-speakers living in Ukraine. The Gallup Poll of 2007 indirectly confirmed that over 80% of Ukrainians consider Russian their native language, not Ukrainian, despite many years of brainwashing. If they couldn’t do it through schools and media, they decided to create the anti-Russia, using Russians.
You will recall that during 2014 euro-maidan, one of the biggest slogans was ‘Moscali na nozhi (in Ukr),’ which means: “Russians on knifes.” One of the biggest demands of ukro-nazis was prohibition of the Russian language in Ukraine.
But after a world-wide storm of indignation and discrimination accusations, US/EU advisors made Kiev junta backtrack on such demands, explaining that this would look really, really bad for the international community and that it would be hard to explain to populations of their own countries why US/EU are supporting outright bandits.
Suddenly, it became ok to speak Russian everywhere, and some in Kiev would even parade their Russian, not the least because they didn’t speak Ukrainian adequately. This was meant to take the discrimination issue off the table, so they could concentrate freely on killing women and children in Donbass, labeling them ‘Russian aggressors and separatists.’ But Russian TV, papers, radio and movies are still banned from Ukraine, and TV channel execs get beaten to death or go to jail for airing Putin’s speech. All official documents and school books must be in Ukrainian.
However, as we see from this video, people still prefer to read and speak in Russian, hence the translation and poster.
I’ve done quite a bit of translation in my life and I can see what’s happening here. As you listen and watch this video, I want to draw your attention to the translator, whose body language is very telling. She starts translating normally. Then, when the American mentions an example of a military man chewing off his arm, she kind of twitches, looks at him, then overcomes her disgust and snaps out of it. Then, as the story becomes uglier, she uses his advice and becomes a machine. She closes off her emotions and starts translating snappier than before – like a machine. At one point she starts walking along the stage away from him, as if trying to run away.
He says these disgusting things on purpose. They all have to step over themselves, or rather step on their consciousness and squash it. Remember Jason Bourne and how he was trained?
When I showed this video to a friend, he made a remark I found very poignant: “When he was rehabilitating killers and addicts in the US, was he also recruiting them for the US army?”
Very possibly. They take people, whose self-esteem is super-low, who are screwed up by drugs and life, who have extremely low calibration…
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is how they train killing machines!
Video title: “Украинцев учат, что умереть за интересы США – это их предназначение” – “Ukrainians are taught that dying for the US interests is their purpose”
Added: To answer the question asked by readers: who is this guy? These are called ‘motivational speakers,’ and anyone who worked on Wall Street, in sales or at least at mid-management level in the US corporate world, has met them. They were hired by corporations to ‘motivate’ their employees. This one also did drug addicts and criminals, as she says. But now the money is in government/military/CIA contractor jobs. Therefore, this man is a US contractor, hired to ‘motivate’ Ukrainians…to kill.
It has been repeatedly reported that Kiev euro-maidan, national guard and nazi battalions live on drugs and hard booze. In Donbass, after ukro-army leaves, people always find syringes. It’s well-known that maidan participants were regularly brought what they called ‘tea’ – drugs brewed in a hot drink, to keep them high, in the destructive mode, and so they wouldn’t start thinking. Most of these are young people, who have lived their confused life in the in-between world, after the USSR collapsed.
These young people have confused identity and they can’t tell good from evil, right from wrong. They violently express their rage from growing up in a failed state that lies to them every day through media and school books. They grew up speaking Russian, and yet they were told to hate Russia. Their oligarchs rob them blind; their country is ruled by US embassy in Kiev and ministers are hired from US, Georgia and Baltics; they are told to shoot at people they used to be friends with – by foreigners.
It is a tragedy of the lost generation, and it is something the world should unite in order to rehabilitate. Instead, the dark forces in the US/Canada and EU prey on these unfortunate and confused souls, turning them into killing machines, with one goal only – to weaken and destroy Russia!
It is advisable to watch my 2 videos on Calibrations of Human Consciousness, first of which will talk about the life-threatening levels, such as the above-described, and the second, about how to rise above that. Watch both here!
What makes people behave in a certain way? How is it that some born into the same circumstances become protectors, and other perpetrators? In my short novelette, GREEN DESERT (Accidental Spy Prequel), I talk about Iraq circa 2007 and fates of several different people, who become strangely connected through the butterfly effect chain of events. How did American Sergeant William O’Shea, manage to rise above his conditioning, and others like him, didn’t? The difference in all cases is that illusive consciousness, of which I speak in my above videos.

This is global info war at its most vicious. The fight between the old and the new is gloves off and is getting especially ugly.
In the past several weeks, various fake info regarding Putin and Russia has been deliberately fed to both MSM and alternative media. In the beginning of March it suggested that Putin was dead. At the time, I received many panicked requests from readers to explain what was happening. I wrote about that in detail here: Rumors of Putin’s Death are Grossly Exaggerated.
In 2014 I received similar requests to explain whether Putin was part of NWO, and whether the capital of Kazakhstan Astana was to become a new capital of NWO. These requests started appearing after persistent fake reports in the so-called Western alternative press. To me, all this seemed very silly and really obvious. Still, I had explained in great detail how this purposeful massive hoax dump was executed. I also explained that the purpose of such all-encompassing campaign was to discredit and broadside Russia and Putin. All this you can read in my viral: FREE Earth Shift Report 1: Is Putin Part of NWO?
The newest hoaxes include: 1. Supposed interview with fake Lyudmila Putina (Putin’s ex-wife), who ‘revealed’ that Putin was fake and that the real Putin was dead, and 2. a similarly fake report that US and UK were supposed to nuke Russia, but a female US army captain failed to press the button.
This is an alert for all readers. And a warning…
Dear readers, first of all, I did explain more than once how such a hoax works. If you are new to FT, or if you have forgotten, please re-read the above-mentioned posts, and learn to recognize such hoax for yourself!
Secondly, you all know my BLOG RULES. I will not post questionable links, or misleading/untrue information because our mission is to promote the truth, not lies. You may not be the source of this untrue information, but if you are spreading it, even unwittingly, you are participating in the hoax, whether you want it or not. Any questionable links will be deleted along with comments, so please be mindful of what you post.
Similarly, as I explained many times before, I DO NOT click on external links provided in comments and I do not comment on any other authors’ articles or opinion – so don’t ask me. I had also explained why I don’t do that and I won’t repeat my explanation. If you have a question, please ask in your own words, if you want to get an answer. To know my view on things, all you need is to read my articles and PREDICTIONS on this blog.
Now, to the issue of who and why creates these hoaxes about Russia and Putin. This should be clear. Here are some of the entities that are behind this: CIA, US, UK, West in general; Kiev junta; all kinds of dark and nazi forces out there, including Chechen terrorists (not to be confused with the Chechen people, who want to live in peace, just like the rest of us), Russian ex-oligarchs, such as Khodorkovsky; Gary Kasparov and Saakashvili; ukro-nazis in Canada; US Trojan Horses: the Baltics, Romania and Poland; Western MSM and fake alternative media. These forces see that scenario they have been diligently preparing for Ukraine and Russia is failing, and due to their frustration, their tactics are getting uglier and uglier, if at all possible.
The scenarios that failed miserably are: 1. creating anti-Russia out of Ukraine; 2. starting Kiev-style maidan and civil war in Russia; 3. they also see that their position in Europe is dwindling as EU is starting to awaken ever so slowly. The idea was to put a wedge between Russia and Europe, which isn’t working as planned; 4. another part of the plan – to ruin the Russian economy, also didn’t work.
Putin’s policies are proving very effective, and theirs – a failure. This is why they have no choice other than to stoop as low as possible and to create the ultimate hoaxes, such as nuclear attack on Russia and the ‘fake Putin’ story.
Who is doing that? What is the actual source of these hoaxes?
You may recall that in 2014 I wrote that the popular meme “I am a Ukrainian,” featuring a pretty, smiley girl on Kiev maidan, was actually created in a Virginia CIA lab. Take a wild guess: where do you think the rest of them were created?
I wrote in: Is Putin Part of NWO? (see link above – and please re-read it!) that the so-called alternative media was hijacked specifically to spread such hoaxes because it is targeted to those readers/viewers, who would trust alternative media over MSM.
It is known that the March 2015 hoax about Putin’s death, based on the fact that he supposedly disappeared from TV, was first spread by Ukrainian MSM. Next, Western MSM and alternative media happily parroted it.
The hoax about fake Putin and the hoax about an almost nuclear attack on Russia were also spread by Ukrainian sources. In previous years, Ukrainian/Baltics/US/UK MSM, and other US-controlled and Russia-hating sources spread similar hoaxes about Putin’s plastic surgery, his billions, his Swiss mansion, etc. But never before has this reached such unbelievable level of viciousness and absurdity.
Considering all of Ukraine media, as well as the media of the EU and the rest of the West, is 100% under the US and US-centric forces control, it is not hard to guess the actual origin of these fakes.
It is truly sad that as soon as such hogwash appears, so many MSM and alternative sources jump on it and start spreading it with gusto!
Consequently, please use your discretion, discernment, and just plain common sense when repeating such things in your comments, whether on my blog, or anywhere else. Every time you repeat a hoax, you are helping a lie and supporting this vicious negative propaganda. Every time you post a link to a hoax – whether here on FT, or anywhere else – you are, perhaps unwittingly, helping such hoax to gain internet popularity and to rise to the top of the search engines’ rating.
My blog is very popular; therefore, each link posted here legitimizes the source and helps such hoax gain popularity. That is entirely contrary to the mission and intention of this blog! It seems I am forced to explain this obvious thing over and over. Please do not be surprised or offended if your comment, containing such link, is deleted.
Therefore, comments containing info and links with hoaxes, provocations and falsehoods (whether willing or unwilling), will be deleted. We now have a moderator on FT, who is pre-viewing comments for these problems. Once in a while, the moderator will leave a comment with signature “FT admin.”
When posting, please read BLOG RULES on top bar and observe them! Thank you!
