False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons

Ukraine is the geopolitical ground zero and the massive fault line between the old and the new. It is in Ukraine that the future of the entire mankind is now being decided.

On this blog, we’ve been talking about it since the beginning of 2014, and I feel we’ll continue talking for the foreseeable future. Much more in PREDICTIONS and 2014 articles under Ukraine category.

This is why anything that happens in and around Ukraine and Novorossia/Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk) has such global resonance. Even those who don’t understand geopolitics and hidden connections between things, people and events, still sense that something important is taking place in those parts.

US president Obama claims Russia is one of the three problems the ‘world’ has, the other two being Ebola and ISIS. Obama obviously means the US-centric, petrodollar-denominated world, which has nothing to do with the perception of the world by the majority of mankind.

I am not going to re-tell the ludicrous things Obama parroted about how terrible Russia is and how great USA is in his State of the Union Address. You can find it online. I am not going to discuss how with these words the entire congregation of Obama-followers exploded with stand-up ovation, reminding me of the Maoist China or USSR Politburo, rather than of what we used to consider a democratic society.

I am also not going to talk about the anti-Russian statements by the neoliberal ameri-nazi Samantha Powers, US ambassador to the UN, whose speeches resemble the Goebbels war propaganda (she is a personal friend of Obama’s, I hear). I received some comments in the past trying to convince me that Obama would ‘in the end stand tall,’ and that I shouldn’t criticise the US politicians. Those who still harbor any illusions as to who Obama, or any other US politicians are and what they are capable of, I suggest you lose these illusions for your own benefit, to avoid severe disappointment later. In fact I very rarely, if ever, talk about US politicians because I think it’s clear who they are. In fact, they aren’t worth my time and energy. I won’t say more about Obama, although I could say quite a lot. You can see my prediction about Obama in 2015, if you follow the above PREDICTIONS link.

This post is also not about the fact that Ukraine regime’s PM Yatsenyuk recently went to Germany, where he proclaimed that Russia invaded Germany and Ukraine – a statement met with uneasy silence by Merkel and German politicians. Poroshenko meanwhile is in Davos, where he is parading a piece of the hole-ridden Volnovakha bus, which was blown up by the Kiev regime with 13 peaceful pensioners and children killed and 16 wounded. Poroshenko’s story is of course to deny the obvious, insisting that it was a shell from the Donbass self-defence that hit the bus (contrary to conclusions by military experts).

You will remember that since the beginning of 2014 I’ve predicted that not only Russia wouldn’t send troops to Ukraine, or get involved militarily, but also that Russia would slowly remold the situation in Ukraine in her favor, using all peaceful and quiet means at her disposal. I also said that eventually very different people would come to power in Ukraine and that between 2016 and 2018 Ukraine would do a wild swing to the opposite side and join Eurasian Union. I further said that Ukraine would never be admitted to the EU or NATO. Most of the above has already come true; recently German and other EU politicians have re-confirmed than no one would admit Ukraine.

Not only the maidan promises by Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Klitchko and the ukro-nazi gang that Ukrainians would soon travel to the EU visa-free and would live ‘just like Europeans do’ turned out false, bu the EU is now closing visas to even those Ukrainians who previously had them. The EU is desperately afraid to be flooded by ukro-nazi gangs and deranged armed thugs. These fears are well-founded.

But at the same time, EU is serving as an instrument of the US-led aggression in Ukraine. Certainly, the war and destruction of Ukraine is in the best interests of the US. It is also in the best interests of the US to weaken the economies of Russia and EU with their own hands, as I repeatedly warned in the past.

Throughout 2014 I wrote a lot about how the aggression in Ukraine was, and continues being perpetrated. I won’t go over the massive amount of proof I had cited in my many previous articles. Those who are new are welcome to read through my past writings.

It’s a pity that so few people seemed to have clicked on like for my last article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates. This article, like many others on my blog, reveals the inconvenient truth and contains a dire and very important warning. I had just released it, and massive proofs and confirmations of what I had said in it, began pouring in.

You probably remember that several days ago Polish government appeared to have snubbed Russian President Vladimir Putin for an invitation to the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Poland and Auschwitz from the German Nazis. The Ukraine puppet president Poroshenko and lots of other heads of state had been invited. The clincher is that it was specifically RUSSIAN/SOVIET ARMY that liberated both Auschwitz and entire Poland. In other words, the liberator, without whom I wonder what would have happened to Poland (?…), wasn’t welcome. Talk about ingratitude.

But the Polish president didn’t stop at that. He said that it was Ukrainian army that liberated Poland, thus not only falsifying history, but also insulting all those who were there – and we are talking millions of Soviet soldiers from all corners of the USSR – 100 nationalities in all, most of them Russian.

The above goes hand in hand with my article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates, which I suggest you all take more seriously. This is the anti-Russian Manchurian Candidate army at work in Poland, and elsewhere.

Neighboring Latvia (another Trojan Horse of the US in the EU) has become a true nazi state. The new law will fine 400 euro anyone who dares to speak Russian in Latvia. More about that in comments by Paul and Nemo here.  There is also more in comments by Nemo here. Again, US Manchurian Candidate army hard at work!

Keep reading! Below, you will find a lot more proof of criminal involvement of Poland, US and other countries in the armed conflict in Ukraine.

The Kiev regime is on its last legs and it is trying desperately to stay afloat by blaming Russia and the poor Donbass they are so bent on destroying, in all their self-inflicted problems. Poroshenko and his cronies are also starting to get on the nerves of their US/NATO handlers.

The earth-shattering news from Ukraine keep pouring in. As if the Volnovakha bus wasn’t enough, today the ukro-nazi terrorists (the real, not imaginary ones!) blew up a bus with peaceful citizens in the center of Donetsk – the latest: 13 to 15 people dead. RT video: Donetsk bus stop bombed: Graphic footage from East Ukraine.

Meanwhile, I have gathered a lot of telling information from different expert and eye-witness sources. This information proves that Ukrainians don’t want to fight any more. Here is the summary.

In January 2015 Poroshenko announced a surprise mass mobilization of up to 200,000 people, including 60-year-olds, women and children. This occurred immediately after he went to the Unity Parch in Paris and after the Volnovakha bus shelling by his army. Read: Urgent! Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine and Ukraine’s Snowden: Whistleblower confirms MH17 was shot down by Ukraine.

Immediately several things happened, according to witnesses.

1. Huge lines consisting of healthy men trying to avoid mobilization formed in front of medical offices and hospitals.

2. Ukrainians were hiding from draft throughout 2014, as I wrote before. But now, draft-dodging is becoming an epidemic. People hide in cellars, change names, leave families behind and move to other cities and countries, as far from their home as possible.

3. Immigration to Russia has reached staggering proportions. What Russians are noticing with alarm is that, as opposed to 2014, when refugees from the Kiev junta atrocities flooded Russia, presently, the so-called maidanutie (those who are anti-Russian, pro-Kiev-maidan) are also flooding in to avoid mobilization. They are anti-Russian, yet, they run to Russia to avoid being drafted to the anti-Donbass ATO.

4. Kiev regime’s plan was to mobilize 50,000, and later, another 150,000 in stages. So far, they are only able to fulfil their quota by about 25-27% due to draft avoidance. Experts estimate that soon draft fulfillment will be down to 10% of the quota.

5. This morbid mobilization has been dubbed ‘mogilization’ from Rus/Ukr/Slav ‘mogila’ – grave. It has become known that Ukraine army acquired 80 hectares of land to bury its ATO soldiers. This information was freely posted and advertised on army site and all over Ukraine media. 80 hectares is enough to bury 160,000 people. The entire mobilization is supposed to be 200,000.

6. Despite such lofty mobilization numbers, even a fraction proved to be unreachable. Ukrainians write in social networks that they would rather go to jail than get drafted – it’s a 3-year sentence for refusing ‘mogilization.’ Advisors and experts in Ukraine are openly advising people to run away, hide, or, worst case scenario, go to jail.

7. According to the military experts I’ve been listening to, the sloppy, unprofessional, not to say, stupid actions of the Ukraine army attest to the fact that real commanders and army professionals don’t want to achieve victory in Donbass. Career officers don’t want to fight, as their heart isn’t in it. What can we talk about if the minister of defence in Kiev is a policeman. They couldn’t find a single military officer for this post.

This resonates directly with one of my early 2014 predictions that Ukraine army won’t want to fight, allegiances to Russia, old Soviet/Russian military traditions and affinity with the Donbass cossacks serving as a break. The reason is: this still is one people, one culture, who have one history – and it’s very hard to take that away despite years of falsified history and Soros/NGO propaganda. I said that Ukraine army would be ineffectual in the hands of the ukro-nazi regime. As a result of the severe unprofessionalism of the ATO operation Kiev regime keeps losing blockposts and villages to the Donbass self-defence. The Donetsk airport is the major win by self-defence. Donbass army may also advance on Mariupol, Gorlovka and Slavyansk, provided Kiev keeps provoking them.

Kiev army has been losing several hundred people a day since the beginning of their offensive. Losses ratio is 10 (Ukr army) to 1 (self-defense).

8. Ukraine soldiers sabotage ATO: This is an eye-opening audio of a web-chat by various people in Donbass. A man calls self-defense to report that a huge shell landed in front of his neighbor’s front door, but didn’t explode. They are worried it could explode any moment. A specialist confirms by the picture that it is indeed a shell of a specific calibre, but that the tip containing detonator has been removed. That’s why it didn’t explode. If it blew up, the neighbor’s house would have been gone. Another man joins to confirm that there are incidents of Ukraine army soldiers removing detonators and shooting blanks. There are also incidents of Ukraine army soldiers scribbling words “helping you however we can” on disarmed shells landing in Donbass. Link to the conversation in Russian from News-Front.

I warned about this last year – and here we go again. This site, News-Front (former anna-news), is very good, with lots of authentic hands-on info you won’t find anywhere else. However, because they are so good and therefore dangerous, they keep being deleted and sabotaged by YouTube, Ukraine and their handlers. So, watch any vids I link from them asap, before they get deleted.

9. In the end of 2014, as people relaxed to celebrate the New Year’s and Rozhdestvo, the US and NATO sent massive amounts of advanced military hardware to Ukraine. Alarmed messages were coming in daily that 4 major airports, including Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov and Zaporozhie had been closed for at least one to two weeks, while they were receiving huge amounts of military hardware from NATO countries. At least 2 ships – one from Australia and one from Canada – docked in Odessa port. Officially, they brought winter uniforms for Ukraine ATO army. However, the rumor is that there were weapons as well. Odessa also reports that ships from France and US docked with armored army vehicles being unloaded.

10. Donbass self-defence has just liberated the strategically important Donetsk Airport. Kiev troops shelled the peaceful citizens of Donetsk from the enormous territory of the airport. After the airport was taken, self-defence discovered large numbers of American-made weapons, as well as a lot of Polish-made items. Some of the dead left behind were Poles (with Polish IDs, wearing Polish-tagged clothes, etc.) Another group of dead bodies were identified as muslims based on specific anatomic details. Throughout 2014, Kiev touted its soldiers sitting inside the airport as ‘brave and invincible cyborgs.’ Self-defence now thinks that at least some ‘cyborgs’ were actually the muslim mercenaries who stayed behind. Several days prior, self-defense allowed everyone who wanted to leave before the final attack on the airport. All Ukrainians left unharmed. It’s interesting that prior to leaving, Ukrainians had burned all the corpses of their dead. For what purpose? To avoid identification?

Some information suggests that muslims, who look different, chose to stay as leaving would have given away the fact that they were foreign mercenaries. It appears that the remaining Polish mercenaries also stayed as their accent would have given them away as well. Those who remained were promised that they would be liberated later, when the general attack by the Ukraine army begins. As we know, that plan failed, and moreover, Ukraine army lost 2 more blockposts and a couple of villages.

Below are several corroborating videos and my partial translation.

(For a more detailed translation, try the closed captioned feature available on YT)

POLISH MERCENARIES PROUDLY DISPLAY THEMSELVES IN UKRAINE:

 Польский наемник на Украине выдал себя по глупости, за пьянкой. Drunk Polish mercenaries proudly show off their Polish-ness. When a journalist in the beginning says, ‘And these are our Ukrainian fighters,’ a Pole answers, ‘No, Polska’, meaning, Poland. The video is self-explanatory.

German security expert, Michael Lüders, on German channel Phoenix-TV: there is information that 500 US mercenaries from Blackwater are fighting on the Kiev regime side. Perhaps there is a divergence starting between EU and US. It seems, EU is starting to understand that EU’s and American interests in Ukraine aren’t the same, especially when it comes to relationship with Russia. (As my readers know, since the beginning of 2014, I had been warning about EU needing to distance itself from the US, realizing that US pursues the goals of: 1. putting a wedge between Russia and EU, and 2. weakening Russia and EU’s economies. If they are finally starting to grasp that – good. But to me it’s simply mind-boggling how clueless EU politicians are if to date they are only starting to understand what should have been clear from the start. Of course it doesn’t help that EU politicians are utterly dependent on the US  – LR) Russian translation and German original.

Interview with Ukrainian patriot, head of the movement Anti-Voina (anti-war) Viktoria Shilova, Dnepropetrovsk: Double standards of Ukrainian elites and the horrors of civil war. О двойных стандартах поведения украинской элиты, Виктория Шилова.

Fresh Interview with eye-witness Dima, citizen of a small industrial city of Artemovsk on the occupied by Kiev side of Donbass. The young man says that Kiev regime distributes leaflets to every worker throughout the city “inviting” people (he adds, like a wedding invitation) to appear in a certain place as their patriotic duty. When people show up, they tell them they have just been mobilized into Ukraine’s army. The young man also says that no one is planning on enlisting, that they would rather go to jail.

From my other source: Another creative way Ukraine mobilizes is this: whenever any man comes to a nursery or kindergarten to pick up his child, he is also served with mobilization papers.

More from the same young man: prices are up for everything, including utilities, housing, transport, food, gas, clothes, medicine, mobile phones. They are suffocating the population. All borders and roads have been closed down. People are very confused, don’t know what to do and where to run. People are very scared.

He says he is a former contract soldier, and can say that the troops occupying his city are not local. They get drunk in public, swear and threaten the population; they go to the local hospital’s maternity ward and yell/swear, interrupting operations. When doctors tell them to be quiet, they intimidate them. At night they engage in drunken shoot-outs next to public housing. Based on what locals overhear, seems like a lot of them come from Lvov, Kiev, Cherkassy, with Western Ukraine prevailing. When they show up in stores, they rudely shove people out of their way and order everyone around. They behave like occupiers, certainly not like part of the same people – the WWII German Nazi occupation comes to mind.

He goes on: everyone wants to be with Russia. No one wants to be a part of Ukraine, people can’t wait for the Donbass army to come and free them. Everyone wants to be a part of DNR, but it’s a little late for that, Dima says. (He’s understandably depressed, but he’s certainly wrong, it’s not late – this is just the beginning. The tide will turn eventually – LR). 

Press conference of the DNR Head Zaharchenko and Ukrainian soldiers taken prisoner in Donetsk airport: ‘Ukraine left us to die, they need only cannon fodder.’ They were lied to and never told that the operation they were being sent for involved heavy fighting. Some arrived to the front barely a few hours prior to being taken prisoner. They were the only survivors in their respective units.

Interview with military analyst Konstantin Sivkov: Ukraine incapable of sustaining any serious systematic military operation. Ukrainian officers don’t want to fight. Ukraine defence minister and staff incompetent. Военный аналитик: украинская власть не способна обеспечить планомерную боевую операцию 21.01.2015

News-Front interview with Oleg Tsarev, Novorossia Parliament Speaker, former Ukraine Rada Deputy and presidential candidate, whose house was burned down and who was severely beaten by ukro-nazis while running for Ukraine president (I discussed that in one of my video on Lada Ray YT channel). Tsarev has a lot of intel channels he has kept in Kiev. He is one of the best intel sources for what’s happening inside the regime.

Host: What are the main reasons for the new massive offensive of Kiev against Donbass, terrorist acts in Donetsk and Volnovakha, an why is Kiev losing again?

Tsarev: The Ukraine regime was seriously hoping that on 1/19 the EU would recognize DNR and LNR as terrorist organizations. That didn’t happen. The issue is very grave for them, because if ATO is conducted by Kiev without any terrorists present, then the gravity of the war crimes falls on Kiev; and as we know, war crimes have no expiration date. The new offensive in Donbass was supposed to disrupt the possibility of peaceful negotiations. It’s the main goal of the USA – not to allow Russia and EU agree on peace in Ukraine. This has been achieved – negotiations were sabotaged.

Besides, Poroshenko is left without any allies in Ukraine. Yatsenyuk and Turchinov are trying to unseat him and US is unhappy with him. Poroshenko wanted to attack Donbass to try to convince everyone he is tough. Meanwhile, Yats, Turch and Avakov are secretly meeting to try to create a narrative for blaming all problems in Ukraine on Poroshenko. Intel says he will be blamed for the ATO failures, grivna fall, economy collapse and shortages.

Also, the reason they thought this new offensive would be successful was because the army reported their readiness. They had program minimum: occupying 1/3 to 1/2 of the DNR and LNR territory; and program maximum: taking over the entire Donbass and killing all ‘separatists.’ The Ukraine military wrote in their reports that they knew that Donbass self-defence would not shell the areas occupied by their citizens, hence they considered obtaining those territories a piece of cake.

The data Ukraine military supplied to Poroshenko was that Ukraine had amassed a 200,000 army; that the army was fully re-armed. In addition to everything, the airports in Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk were closed down for weeks to receive massive infusion of NATO weaponry and hardware that was supposed to fully re-arm them for this offensive. After all this massive preparation, it turned out that no one wanted to fight and the army was unable to perform any serious military action.

There are, of course, terrorist battalions and nazis that are still fighting, but it’s not the war they expected. This is a broken up, confused civil war.

Host: professor of Georgetown University, the Potomac Foundation president Philip Harber (sp?), said that he was a guest at the ukro-nazi battalion Dnepr 1 deployed in Donbass, and he personally counted dozens of Russian tanks crossing the border. In other words, no radar or satellite could confirm this, yet this professor visually, being far away from the border, personally ‘saw’ Russian tanks. This professor now calls on the US to supply Kiev with advanced lethal weaponry to counter ‘Russian aggression.’ In other words, Russia sends humanitarian convoys in white trucks, while US wants to deploy lethal weaponry.

Tsarev: What you mentioned, our intel says they already have supplied all that. It had been delivered during the closure of the  4 airports.

In conclusion, the following alarming intel.

1. Responding to a question, I said in my recent article: “Problem is US and Ukraine completely lost it and are too dangerous; they can concoct another false flag in a jiffy. This worries me most.” And just almost as soon as I wrote this, the following warning by analyst from Kiev, Rostislav Ishenko, came up: Kiev is extremely desperate.The country is falling apart and they can’t win a war against Donbass no matter how they try. Their US handlers are unhappy with them, while the EU is waking up, doubting the Kiev story more and more.

(Examples: many Germans are openly criticizing Merkel’s position of subservience to the US; during Poroshenko’s trip to Geneva, he was met with boos and protests; in the most progressive northern part of Italy, locals re-named one of their squares ‘the square of the Odessa Martyrs’ after the Odessa Kulikovo Polie May 2, 2014 massacre – LR).

Therefore, warns Ishenko, Kiev will attempt a massive false flag in order to prolong its existence. This false flag has to be huge in scope, preferably, with thousands of victims. They already had MH17 with almost 300 dead, yet even that didn’t create enough resonance. They need something much bigger to again sway EU into a tough position against Russia. Of course it will be blamed on Russia and/or Donbass self-defence.

Some think that this could be a terrorist act on one of the three main nuclear stations of Ukraine: Zaporozhskaya – the largest in Europe, closest to Donbass and Russia; Yuzhnaya – near Odessa, with potential poisoning of the Black Sea; or Rivno Station – in the western Ukraine ukro-nazi/Bandera capital of Rovno, which is geographically closest to the EU. The warning about a nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine, compared to which Chernobyl is a tiny blip, has been circulating for a while.

However, Ishenko thinks that because a nuclear station explosion won’t achieve the effect of a lot of victims at once, it would be something else. I am thinking: perhaps a terror act against foreign diplomats in Kiev, blamed on self-defense; assassinating president Poroshenko together with other politicians; blowing up the Central Rada with all deputies in it; or a mass killings of various activists, could be even ukro-nazis, as some examples.

2. Second warning is that Kiev, in its desperation, may openly declare a war against Russia. This idea has been expressed by many in the Kiev regime. I personally think this would be suicide and a very quick one at that, for the Kiev regime. I don’t think even they are stupid enough for that. But for what it’s worth, this is what’s circulating.

My opinion: a massive false flag is a clear and present danger. I think everyone should talk about it everywhere in order to dissuade them from executing it. Some false flags have already been prevented because people made it public and their plans had to be cancelled. So, tweet, FB, share this info!

World Beware! What is Really Behind Angela Merkel’s Subservience to the US?

I have repeatedly warned last year about the strange and incongruent position of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel in regards to various issues, from NSA surveilance and the return of the German gold, to sanctions against Russia. In all situations, Merkel took position that was submissive to the US and directly contrary to the interests of her own country. In the old days, that would be called treason.

The German newspapers have been circulating rumors that the reason for Merkel’s position is the fact that she aims to become the new Secretary General of the UN. In 2016 Ban Ki Moon’s term expires and the next GenSec has to be a European. However, it is very well known that the only way a UN GenSec can be elected, let alone survive in this post, is when she is approved and in good graces with the USA.

As I wrote previously, there is more to the story than meets the eye and Merkel is also pathologically anti-Russian (something she has been hiding well throughout her life), as well as utterly compromised by NSA. However, the UN GenSec position for serving as a loyal US lapdog is a great reward. US puppets always tend to be rewarded lavishly as long as they toe the line.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a prime demonstration of the unprecedented corruption of the Western system, of utter lack of democracy and complete disregard for any laws and common decency – something both US and EU so love to point out in others.

Merkel has proven that she doesn’t want to retire and that she craves more power. As you will see below, she is being quietly, but insistently, exposed and pushed out of the German power structures. But that’s okay with her as the US is offering her a bigger prize in exchange for subservience and closing her eyes to blatant US abuses in the EU, Ukraine, Russia and Germany itself.

Related report in Russian: Эксперт: Ангела Меркель может идти на поводу у США, чтобы получить пост генсека ООН

As an afterthought: UN has become a completely corrupt and irrelevant organization. The sooner it is replaced, the better. However, this will only happen after the US empire is weakened sufficiently. And of course, the headquarters had better be moved from New York, somewhere far and away.

Related: US puppet, Ukrainian PM Arseny Yatsenyuk, a few days ago went to Germany where he gave an interview to Germany’s #1 TV channel ARD. In the interview Yatsenyuk said verbatim that: “Russia attacked and invaded both Ukraine and Germany.”

Merkel’s reaction? NO COMMENT! 

Эксперт: Из-за высказываний Яценюка о Второй мировой войне Меркель оказалась в неловком положенииby RT на русском52,083 views. Merkel has been put in a difficult position when Yatsenyuk announced that it was the USSR that attacked Nazi Germany. If Yatsenyuk is trying to gain support and sympathy in Germany this way, all this will achieve is the opposite effect as Germans know very well that the German Nazis attacked the USSR.

This is from The Voice of Germany I referenced previously: Germany must exit NATO and enter a union with Russia. 12/14 German author Peter Feist, interview to Quer-Denken.TV: “German government is acting contrary to German interests, including risking heat in our people’s homes during harsh winter, just to please the US. We have to regain our sovereignty, which we are losing fast. German government has made deals and is celebrating open nazis in Ukraine who are parading with swastikas around Kiev.”

German Vice Chancellor: No Ukraine in NATO; Russia, Let’s Make Up!

Ohhh…seriously, I am getting a tiny bit tired reiterating time after time: ‘I TOLD YOU SO!’ From the beginning of the Ukraine crisis, in my articles about Ukraine, Germany and German Chancellor Merkel, I said time and again that Ukraine would never be admitted into the EU – and forget NATO. That US would try to push Ukraine’s memberships through, with no result whatsoever, except creating more animosity and crisis on European continent, which in fact is their goal to begin with. As usual, see much more in PREDICTIONS and related articles below.

I also said that after yelling and screaming (and sanctions), EU will cool off eventually and recall that really, truly, honestly…they want to be friends with Russia. Interesting how it happens every time the heating season starts in earnest.

On referenced video (watch on YT in Russian) – German Vice Chancellor Zigmar Gabriel: ‘Germany will never allow Ukraine to be admitted into NATO. US has been putting pressure on Germany, but on the Federal level at least such decision will not pass as this would destabilize the situation even further. Germany needs to do what Austria is suggesting – engage new channels for negotiations with Russia. Internal Ukraine conflict is aggravated by Ukraine’s conflict with Russia. Ukraine’s internal conflict cannot be solved without solving a conflict with Russia. It seems to me that we all in Europe, Germany can’t do it alone, have to formulate a new policy towards Russia. We are not giving up on the idea of a European Russia. We have to be united in this and we are very interested in Russia being a part of Europe. We can’t afford Europe’s division because of the Russia issue.’

Why has this statement from German VC appeared now? Division within Merkel’s ruling party? Are her own people angry at her? Perhaps to a degree. I’d be, if I were them. But even more so, I think these are the true underlying reasons:

1. Note, this statement is by Merkel’s underling. Merkel is on the hook with NSA, who have massive dirt on her after listening in on her phone conversations. This keeps her on a short leash. I wrote about that issue in a couple of earlier articles. This is why Merkel suddenly stopped demanding that German gold held (or rather, that ‘used to be held’) at the NY FED be repatriated. Besides, Merkel has already made so many aggressive and threatening remarks about Russia that she couldn’t possibly switch to a conciliatory tone – you need a fresh face to make a statement such as this.

2. Clearly, winter is upon us and all of a sudden Germany remembered why they need to try to be friends with Russia. That’s right, Gazprom and Russian gas.

3. Not only the population, but also German business class is rebelling. Merkel, reportedly is ‘tired of receiving calls from industrialists asking her to reverse anti-Russian sanctions.’

A few days ago a curious news crossed the wires. One of the prominent German industrialists who was a long-time donor of Merkel’s ruling Christian Democratic Union, announced he was forming a group of industrialists who would stop supporting Merkel and CDU and would instead invest in the opposition.

4. Ukraine in today’s configuration and with this government is a loose cannon, whose only desire and goal is siphoning as much money as possible from the EU and the West in general (since Russia refused to subsidize it any more), while Ukraine oligarchs, armed thugs and politicians continue the wholesale demolition and looting of the economy. The biggest donor to Ukraine would be Germany. For terrified Germany (and EU) Ukraine is becoming a financial weight that is dragging them to the bottom.

To me this outcome was clear from the beginning – question is, why wasn’t it clear to EU politicians? Those who haven’t yet, may want to check out: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.

5. EU today cannot exist peacefully and prosperously without good relations with Russia. Unfortunately, EU politicians are too slow or too sold-out to grasp any of this. They only start seeing the light when crisis is staring them personally in the eye. In my new video ProjectEarthShift 1:Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-diminishing calibrations 0-199) I explain how this works. The example I provide is Angela Merkel. Her calibration is 184 – the level of pride. On this level people (and countries) are so self-centered and so egotistical that they start acting only when there is a threat to their own stability. They are utterly disinterested in truth, justice and saving or helping others. Their moral and truth compass is so off that they see black as white and vice versa, until it hurts them personally.

There are a few politicians in the West that are different, one of them being Milos Zeman, President of the Czech Republic, who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Read: Desperate Obama, A Voice of Sanity from Czechia and Anti-Russian Sanctions. There are sane politicians in Germany too. They speak up against this madness, which only benefits the Anglo-American elites. Incidentally, it has been shown time and again by honest German journalists that German MSM is in bed with the US, doing their bidding by spreading propaganda.

By contrast, see what the world looks like, and what can be accomplished, when people calibrate at life-affirming levels: ProjectEarthShift 2: Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-affirming/ life-creating calibrations 200-1000).

6. The division and rebellion within the EU is growing. Czech and Hungarian leaders are making statements of dissent. Austria isn’t happy about sanctions. Finland said: don’t even come to us with sanctions any more. Greece, Italy and Spain are trying to quietly, on country to country level, circumvent sanctions. Serbia (non-EU, but being dragged in) said they were being pressured to join sanctions, but they wouldn’t.

7. And how do you like this precious latest bit! I seriously think you couldn’t invent it if you tried! Turns out the reason France couldn’t deliver the Mistral carriers to Russia, thus incurring billions in penalties and contract losses, as well as a loss of business credibility and future deals with Russia, is because POLAND leaned on France and made them forfeit. This incredible bit of news was confirmed by the Russian newscast Vesti on Channel 1 Russia. Is it because Poland is now so strong, or is it because France is becoming so weak? Recently, France had to swallow the insult from the US, when US fined BNP Paribas close to $10 bln for violating US sanctions. As my readers know, I call Poland one of the ‘US Trojan Horses in Europe.’

This is what a catastrophic loss of sovereignty looks like! It is when a country formerly considered one of the Great Powers would sacrifice national interests to please its boss. De Gaulle isn’t just turning – he is spinning in his grave. France is made to be an example and a warning for others. All this is being closely observed, and the alarm bells are going off in all EU capitals.

8. And here is the final, and very strong, worry for Germany and EU. They see that Russia is successfully pivoting to the EAST, again as I predicted from the beginning. Read more in Predictions and related articles. Since February-March, 2014 I said that ‘if Russians feel even slightly inconvenienced by sanctions, off to the East they go.’ Since then we saw Russia sign massive deals with China, Central Asian countries, Iran, South American countries. I also have predicted that EU will start experiencing gas shortages after Russia transitions to the new markets. This is confirmed by the latest news:

Just in! While in negotiations with Turkish President Erdogan, Vladimir Putin has announced that Russia withdraws from the South Stream project, which would supply gas directly to Europe bypassing Ukraine (also as predicted: I said, I believe in March, that South Stream wasn’t important to Russia any more and that she didn’t care if it continued or not). Putin announced together with Erdogan that instead, Russia will concentrate on expanding the gas pipeline to Turkey and in creating in Turkey and Greece an international gas hub for further gas deliveries elsewhere. Putin specifically said that if Europe isn’t interested in Russian gas, it will be sold to other countries, hinting at future gas shortages for the EU.

The above breaking news is noteworthy. I will either have a separate article about that, or I will include this in my upcoming THE PUTIN ENIGMA Report.

ANNOUNCEMENT

THE PUTIN ENIGMA REPORT IS COMING SOON.

I AM PRESENTLY WORKING ON IT, BUT WITH MANY OTHER THINGS GOING ON IN LIFE AND THE WORLD, IT IS TAKING ME A LITTLE LONGER TO COMPLETE. I WANT TO DO A VERY THOROUGH JOB. THE REPORT WILL DELVE BOTH INTO GEOPOLITICS AND INTO SOME VERY INTERESTING METAPHYSICS AND HIGHER REALMS.

Urgent! Ukraine Nazi Vandals Scheduled to Destroy UNESCO World Heritage Site in Odessa on 10/14!

Video call snapshot 78Lada’s announcements: 

1. Dear readers, in the past several months I have been traveling the world. Due to life changes I’ll talk about in the future, I am now deciding where to relocate. I’ll be returning to the US for the holidays. So far, I’ve been keeping up with my posts and reader comments from the road. Going forward, I am looking forward to creating and publishing many more interesting videos, articles and Earth Shift Reports!

2. Today, I was scheduled to post Earth Shift Report 2: The Historic Roots of Russophobia in Ukraine and How to Cure It. Unfortunately, probably due to Mercury Retrograde and the eclipse, WordPress editor has become glitchy. When I was preparing my report for publication, it screwed up my formatting and the spellcheck didn’t want to cooperate. Therefore, I have to slow down and publish this report in a few days, when hopefully, the spellcheck and sanity gets restored. The upcoming Earth Shift Report 2 contains a lot of interesting, one of a kind intel, history, and juicy stuff not to be missed! It works closely together with my today’s post. Stay tuned!

Urgent! Ukraine Nazi Vandals Scheduled to Destroy UNESCO World Heritage Site in Odessa!

I have just learned that the Kiev junta government gave marching orders to the same traveling circus of violence that destroyed the monument to Lenin in Kharkov, and many such monuments around the country. You can see the video of the destruction and violence against those who wanted to reason with the crazed vandals in my post: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy. It has to be emphasized that these masked vandals are the VERY WELL PAID ONES. Who finances them? I’ll give you a hint – NOT the bankrupt Kiev junta government!

I am not the biggest Lenin fan, but he is as much a part of our history as any other leader, and I respect my history. Not to mention, it was Lenin who was the ‘father of the Ukraine nation.’ Before Lenin, there was no country called Ukraine – read all about that in the upcoming Earth Shift Report!

The Kharkov monument these nazis destroyed was the world’s largest monument to Lenin installed on Europe’s largest square. Dozens of Lenin monuments have been destroyed all over Ukraine. In the city of Zaporozhie locals ‘saved’ the Lenin monument from destruction by… dressing it in a traditional embroidered Ukrainian shirt, ‘vishivanka.’ Can you say ‘bizarre’?

However, I have just learned that the destruction is to get much worse.

Because ukro-nazis have lost in Donbass/Novorossia and are forced to make peace, and also because they are unable to extort Russian gas for free any more (and winter is coming), they are now waging a war against monuments. This senseless violence is an attempt to re-write history, to delete any links to Russia Ukraine has ever had, and to re-shape the consciousness of their young generation as enemies of Russia.

The worst thing is that Odessa isn’t, and has never been, a Ukrainian city. It was always Russian, given to Ukraine based on a stupid geopolitical mistake by Lenin. Same goes for Kharkov. Lenin’s move perhaps seemed politically expedient in 1922,during the formation of the USSR, but it is backfiring now. Lenin’s excuse is that Ukraine in the configuration we see it today was only supposed to exist as part of the Greater Russia. Stay tuned for Earth Shift Report 2, which will cover this in detail.

After the May 2 burning of people alive in Odessa and after Kharkov killings and demolitions, the ukro-nazis have intimidated the people in both Kharkov and Odessa so much that they are afraid to make a peep. Kharkov is the second largest city in Ukraine and Odessa is the cultural, sea and summer capital of Ukraine. Both of these places hold enormous importance, and they are correctly deemed to be the most dangerous for the ukro-nazi junta, as they are next in line for an insurrection after Donbass. By demolishing monuments dear to locals, the Kiev junta is attempting to erase the citizens’ memory and destroy their dignity to the point of no return.

But with Odessa, they may go too far. The two monuments they want to demolish are a part of the protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not only that, there are hundreds of thousands of Odessans with clout living all over the world. Odessans never stop being Odessans, whether they live in New York, Melbourne, Tel-Aviv or Berlin. If they demolish these monuments they will only expedite their demise and subsequent war crimes tribunal!

Many of my readers know that I spent my childhood in Odessa. I was born in Moscow and both of these beautiful cities are in my heart. What is happening in Odessa is important to me. Unfortunately, many people who had the smarts and initiative, who didn’t want to be a part of the Ukraine farce, left Odessa throughout the 1990s-2000s. I have no idea how many people with guts are left there. Odessa used to be a Hero City, the title it received based on its staunch resistance during the Great War. Odessans are lovers, jokers and traders, but they know how to stand up for themselves in case of an attack.

This is an all out attack on everything Odessans hold dear! Is there anyone left in Odessa to stand up to it?

Odessa:

Monument to Russian Empress Ekaterina II – Catherine the Great – founder of the Russian city of Odessa

The ukro-nazi traveling circus of chaos was given an order to destroy the remainder of what they deem the Russia-related monuments in Kharkov, and also, to destroy the historic monument to Ekaterina II, or Catherine the Great, in Odessa. According to my intel, they may also attempt to destroy the monument to Pushkin on Primorsky Bulvar. Both monuments are extremely valuable historic and artistic treasures.

Both the Catherine the Great monument and the Pushkin monument are part of the Unesco World Heritage Site, which includes the entire center of Odessa, together with Pushkinskaya and Deribasovskaya Streets, the famous Odessa Opera and Tchaikovsky Drive, Primorsky Bulvar, the Old Ratusha (mayor’s office), museums, Vorontsov Palace, the Potemkinskaya Steps, and Odessa Seaport with the unique Odesskiy Mayak (lighthouse).

Pushkin

Pushkin 2

The world-famous monument to the great Russian writer Alexander Pushkin, Odessa’s pride and joy! It faces the Primorsky Bulvar with views of the Odessa Bay, and backs to the Old Ratusha. Pushkin monument on one side and Catherine the Great monument on another, both frame the Primorsky Bulvar along the Black Sea.

You can read my posts about Odessa with many more great images:

It will be disastrous if they succeed in destroying the monument to Catherine the Great, and/or to Pushkin. Simply disastrous. Together with the burning of people alive on May 2 in the House of the Unions on historic Kulikovo Polie, this would completely ruin Odessa as a beautiful city I remember.

These monuments were built extremely well. They survived many wars and revolutions. Even German and Romanian Nazis who occupied Odessa during WWII didn’t touch them. To think that people speaking the same language and living in the same country would do such a thing… This is why those who do it hide behind masks. They are afraid of being recognized and brought to justice.

The problem is that in Kharkov the ukro-nazis beat to death a man who tried to stop them from destroying the Lenin monument. Other four people received stab wounds. People are mortally afraid to speak up. Only a very large crowd can prevent this act of vandalism from happening. But it’s well-known that ukro-nazis do their awful deeds at night, when people are asleep.

By continuing these acts of aggression, ukro-nazis are destroying what’s left of the good will on the part of Russians. I wonder, how do they intend to conduct the gas negotiations after this? A cold winter is coming.

The scariest thing is that those in the US and EU who were hoping to divide Ukraine and create the enemy state next to Russia’s borders, are partially succeeding. It is only the cool head of Putin that is still holding it together. Even I am losing patience. And if they do destroy the monuments in Odessa I had loved since I was a child, consider my patience officially lost!

I will repeat again and again: all this became possible only because the US and EU, with their bought-and-paid-for politicians, financed and instigated the Kiev maidan; because CIA/MI6, US State Dept, UK, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Brussels, etc., created and encouraged the atmosphere of lawlessness and all-permissiveness in Ukraine; because UN, OSCE, Red Cross, US, EU continue closing their eyes to the many atrocities of the Kiev junta all over Ukraine; because they IGNORE and refuse to investigate the overwhelming number of crimes against humanity, therefore encouraging more of them to take place.

I hold personally responsible for what is happening in Ukraine: Obama, Kerry, Biden, Merkel, Ashland, Soros, Western MSM, and all those EU and US political, military, economic and media clowns who financed, trained and orchestrated the violence in Ukraine, as well as those who pull the strings of the aforementioned clowns.

Karma is getting really heavy not only for Ukraine, but for all those from the above-mentioned organizations and countries who are allowing the new fascist state in Ukraine to proliferate! And karma is a bitch!

Urgent! Church Pogroms Planned! Another UNESCO World Heritage Site under attack!

This is directly related to above post! Just learned that on October 14, 2014 they are also preparing to destroy and/or capture various Russian Orthodox churches and cathedrals all around Ukraine. Crazed nazi right sector and ultra-nationalist mobs have been threatening priests in Russian churches and vandalizing the church property for months. However, this is something new. Tomorrow, they plan a streamlined action, in which they want to take control of all Russian Orthodox church property everywhere in Ukraine. Russian Orthodox is the traditional faith of the people here since about the 10th century. In fact, it was in Kiev, the Kievan Rus, where Christianity started on Russian lands.

Among other churches, tomorrow they plan to capture the Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra in Kiev, the seat of the Russian Orthodox church in Ukraine. The beautiful Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra is a 800-year-old massive Orthodox monastery, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Link to article.

Germans fed up with NATO lies and US wars

Remember how in several of my articles from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis I said that ending the war in Ukraine as quickly as possible, as well as ending the US stronghold over Europe, depends on Germany and Angela Merkel? I criticised both Germany and Merkel for their apathy and the ‘deer caught in the headlights’ inaction. Still in 2013, I also said that the new axis of power is forming between Russia, Germany and China. You can search FuturisTrendcast site for my posts on all this.

This may be the beginning of some good news! It appears that Germans are finally fed up and they start slowly speaking up! Below are 3 very telling items from Germany.

The article at the bottom, from the Paul Craig Roberts site, mentions FuturisTrendcast along with Al-Jazeera and Der Spiegel. Lada Ray

“Germans fed up with NATO lies & US wars” Former German Defence Secretary. Video from RT:

“German/Russian people against fascism in Ukraine.” Video from Rus Berlin. Anti-fascist, anti-Kiev-junta May 2014 demonstration in Berlin that gathered 35-40 thousand people. As the crowd walks, the Russian anthem starts playing.

From PaulCraigRoberts.org. Guest Column from Germany — America Frightens Us — by Roman Baudzus. 

Dear Friends: I am pleased to be able to share with you this revealing article written for our website by the editor of an important website in Germany.

Washington’s lies echoed by the presstitute media that serves Washington are destroying Washington’s credibility and that of the Western media among Europeans, especially Germans who understand that the threat to peace comes from across the Atlantic, not from east of the Oder River.

The success or failure of Vladimir Putin’s bet that reasonable diplomacy and unprovocative behavior on Russia’s part will contrast favorably with the shrill provocations by Washington depends upon whether European politicians respond to their own citizens or continue in their role as Washington’s whores.  PCR

Political Europe Suppressed Under Washington´s Thumb Is Waking Up

Roman Baudzus

In the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine, the Western media followed Washington’s lead and manipulated reports in order to make Europeans believe that Russia and Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the airliner. In Germany, the press was an extension of Washington’s propaganda machine despite the lack of evidence from both Washington and Kiev to support their irresponsible claims.

It was not long, however, before the public mood in Europe began to turn. A pivotal factor was openly voiced U.S. threats in a law that had been passed by both the House of Representatives and the Senate of the U.S. Congress that could eventually result in an invasion of the Netherlands by United States army forces. http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/internationales-strafgericht-us-kongress-droht-niederlanden-mit-invasion-a-200430.html

When this was learned outrage was expressed not only within the Dutch government, but also among the population of the country. According to the law, if it should ever happen that American citizens are brought before the International Criminal Court (ICC) and accused at The Hague, Washington would exercise the preemptive right to invade the country in order to prevent prosecution.

Remember that Malaysia’s government had permitted a tribunal in 2011, whose judges in the tradition of British court proceedings condemned both George W. Bush and Tony Blair as war criminals.http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2011/11/20111128105712109215.html Some Europeans are asking if there could be a connection between the ruling of this tribunal and the loss of two Malaysian airliners.

In addition, alert and intelligent Europeans have caught on to Washington’s campaign to demonize Russia. A Dutch group of professors sent an open letter to Russian president Vladimir Putin on August 12 in which the signatories officially apologized for the propaganda lies sprewed by Western media.https://futuristrendcast.wordpress.com/2014/08/05/an-open-letter-from-the-netherlands-to-putin-we-are-sorry/

The former “quality media” in Europe have lost the confidence of readers. A growing number of Europeans relying on Internet sites such as http://www.paulcraigroberts.org are quite well informed about the propagandistic nature of the Western mainstream media.

The chart recently published by a leading German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) indicates that for one reason or the other, Germans have turned away from German newspapers. The cumulative sales of German newspapers reached their climax back in the year 1983 – with a circulation of 30.1 million copies.

pastedGraphic

Ever since, things have been deteriorating. In 2013, the circulation shrank to only 17.3 million sold copies – a significant decline of 42.5%, which really hurts many publishers. Persistent cost-reduction programs, massive job cuts and the demise of daily newspapers such as the Financial Times Deutschland are the consequence of newspapers in vassalage to Washington. Many excuses are made for the decline, but the real reason is that German newspapers no longer take
their readers seriously

Germans wonder why their reunited country is still occupied by US troops 69 years after the end of World War II, why their country has no foreign policy independent of Washington, and why the German media provides no public discussion of these highly unusual characteristics of an allegedly sovereign state.

During the last several years the media’s propagandistic character has led to massive resistance among newspaper readers, especially in Germany. You only have to take a look at the comments published on Internet sites of the mainstream media to see angry and disappointed readers turn away from their once favorite newspapers that are accused of actively participating in Washington´s propaganda campaign. Readers see propaganda instead of investigative journalism. In place of evidence and honest reports, there are insinuations and ridiculous accusations. The German newspaper Die Welt even blamed the outbreak of the ebola virus on Russia!http://www.welt.de/politik/ausland/article131459175/Russland-hat-Ebola-zur-Waffe-gemacht.html

Given the danger of Washington pushing Europe into war with Russia, one can be glad that so many Europeans see through the perfidious propaganda lies spread by the mainstream media. Internet sites now perform the role abandoned by newspapers. These mainly independent internet media refer to themselves as alternative media, which have the goal to provide objective and truthful information in place of propaganda.

Some of the large German newspapers destroyed what little credibility they had left when they used social media to spread their claim that the negative comments on their websites were written by people on the payroll of Vladimir Putin. One doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry over this grotesque assertion.

The unanswered question is why does German mainstream media serve Washington instead of Germany? Does Washington pay well for propaganda services?

If we now come to the recent events in Ferguson, these incidents made us realize that the U.S. police state is not just on the rise, but is already in place! Scenes on TV and Internet videos of brutal militarized police equipped for battlefield combat applying extreme violence to protesters and journalists alike has raised the question in Europe whether America is a democracy or a police state. The continuing American massacre of people in the Middle East, together with Washington’s support for Israel’s massacre of Palestinians and now the massacre of Russians in eastern and southern Ukraine by the government that Washington installed in Kiev have changed the image of America from white hat to black hat. America no longer reassures us; America frightens us.

In a recent story Die Welt journalist Ansgar Graw wrote: “The day when the U.S. police became my enemy.”

Even Washington’s German media vassals reporting for Die Welt have now experienced firsthand the full brunt of American police violence. See http://www.welt.de/politik/ausland/article131363772/Der-Tag-an-dem-die-US-Polizei-mein-Feind-wurde.html andhttp://www.handelsblatt.com/politik/international/krawalle-in-ferguson-panzer-gegen-protestler/10356412.html

German journalists who have been living in the United States for 15 years are telling their readers that they have come to the decision to leave the US. They report that things have changed for the worse in the “land of the free” since 9/11, and that they were threatened, handcuffed and arrested for covering the protests in Ferguson.

The policeman who killed the 18-year old black man set off protests, the response to which opened the world’s eyes to the transformation of America into a police state. A country whose military bases occupy much of the world in the name of human rights and freedom, a country that violently interferes in internal affairs of sovereign nations and fights wars at its leisure is now perceived as waging war against its own oppressed propulation. By arrogantly exempting itself from the standards it applies to everyone else, the US has destroyed its credibility.

Now the Dutch wait for the appearance of US troops to show up at the Hague should international law ever be applied to Washington’s war criminals. As one German magazine put it recently, “with friends like America, we don’t need enemies.”

Lying, or concealing GMO-related activity, as well as mislabelling GMO products, will bear jail sentence and will be equated to terrorism. Meanwhile, Russia and China sign a mega deal to supply Russian gas and discuss building the ambitious high-speed railroad connecting Eurasia and America. How does all this effect the future of China, Russia, as well as the US and EU? And more.

In response to my words about #Merkel, I received this very interesting comment from a regular reader of this blog and I thought it was so telling that I decided to create a new article by responding to it. Pieter’s comments are always sharp. However, this one perhaps underlines the confusions that exist in the EU. Please forgive me that I am not mincing words. This is because we are talking very serious issues and sometimes you need to say it straight in order to get through the mud of confusion.

Pieter from Europe says:I don’t think Merkel has to fear a scandal. She’s too smart and well organized for such crap.
Merkel fears an escalation. I’m fearing that too. That internet satellite Russia launched last week was shot down. By a ufo, an unknown weapon of the US forces, I don’t know. But that satellite was brought down. Certain evolutions are confusing me. Let’s wait what the may 25 elections will bring for Ukraine.” Read the rest of this entry

Russia’s Moves: Outlawing GMO and Putin’s Holy Grail Gas Deal with China

Bravo! About time! And a great example for the rest of the world!

Russian President Vladimir #Putin announced that Russia will criminalize #Monsanto and any other bio-tech companies who attempt to plant, or lie/conceal that they have planted #GMO seeds on Russian territory. The public support for such measures is tremendous. In fact, people have been waiting for this to happen for years.

Lying, or concealing GMO-related activity, as well as mislabelling GMO products, will bear jail sentence and will be equated to terrorism. The people’s health is the most important thing, not profit, according to Russian authorities.

Many countries world-wide have suffered from GMO. While Europe has banned GMO on its territory, Monsanto practically cornered the market for genetically modified organisms in the USA, Latin America and many poor Asian countries. The situation with GMO is catastrophic in countries like Argentina and Mexico, to name a few. Due to corrupt politicians, poor farmers, and population simply desperate to survive, it is impossible to know for certain how many countries and what kinds of crops have succumbed to GMO infestation in Asia.

While GMO was never planted in Russia, attempts have been made to introduce it. The opposition to GMO has been strong in Russia for years. Many citizens and politicians speak up against it. A couple of years ago, Russian Duma tentatively approved GMO seeds for planting, however, this law remained in a limbo, waiting to be overturned and generating a storm of grass-roots protests. Counter-proposals to ban GMO because of their harm to health and environment were discussed. This time, Russian Duma is acting quite decisively and is set to ban GMO, as well as impose criminal charges on those who don’t adhere to the pending law. Read the rest of this entry

Cyprus Crisis Explained in 8 Minutes

cyprus map

Cyprus is tiny, and its economy only constitutes 0.2% of the EU economy, however, the Cyprus banking disaster has long-ranging implications for the country, the EU and the entire world. How?

These are the most important points to remember:

First, this is a test case implemented by the EU to see how far they can go in their capital controls and in “reshaping” (read “destroying”) various economies to their specifications. Put simply, we are observing a test case for the controlled demolition of weaker economies. A good past example of controlled demolition to keep in mind is the Argentinian default. Presently, there is a number of the EU economies that are standing in line for various “interventions” by Brussels, IMF and ECB. These are the EU periphery countries: Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Hungary and others. Cyprus is a great test case due to how small it is. The theory is that it wouldn’t send any significant shock-waves through the EU economy, unlike say a much larger country, like Spain or Italy. Additionally, it’s an offshore tax haven within the EU, which is something Brussels and Berlin are itching to close down. Finally, much of the foreign money in Cyprus is Russian, or non-EU, and based on the current EU propaganda, those funds deserve to be taxed. According to those who pull the strings in the EU, this is a simple and full-proof scenario, but that’s where they are dead wrong! Here’s why.

cyprus-bank

Cyprus is a self-professed offshore banking haven. More specifically, it WAS an offshore banking haven – no more, because as a result of this debacle, the Cyprus banking haven status is gone, and that’s a guarantee. Any banking in the world is based on trust and faith in the institution to which you are entrusting your money. Trust is two-fold: solvency + a consistent delivery on promises. If you promise that the money in your bank will be kept in segregated, private accounts and that these accounts will be tax free, you better keep your word, if you want to keep your customers.

There is obviously no trust left for the Cyprus banking sector. I listened to an interview by a Russian billionaire Lebedev, who said that he kept a certain amount of money in a Cyprus bank, most of which was invested back in Russia. But whatever was left in the Cyprus account, he would withdraw immediately once he’s allowed access to his acocunt because he no longer trusted the Cyprus banking system. There are lots of private and corporate jets currently sitting in Cyprus airports, waiting for the first opportunity to get their capital out and leave forever. The capital flight from Cyprus started last year, when it had first surfaced that the country was in dire financial straits. It is estimated that 1/2 of the foreign capital left the country way before this crisis. After the present crisis, Cypriot banks will be lucky to have any capital left on their shores.

Cyprus protests

Trends Research Institute’s Gerald Celente believes that this is a deliberate financial attack against Russia. Incidentally, that’s true, there’s a lot of Russian capital in Cyprus, estimated before this crisis at $15bln. I get asked a lot about the situation with Russian capital, its nature and Russia’s role in this scenario.  This is a complex issue and I intend to cover it in a separate segment. Part of the issue here is whether it’s clean or dirty money, and if so, isn’t it “okay” to tax “dirty Russian money?” For now, I’ll just note that any laundered Russian money domiciled in Cyprus is an issue between Russia and Cyprus, and it has nothing to do with the EU. As Vladimir Putin has noted, “the EU is stealing what has already been stolen” – from the Russian people, I might add. I’ll do a separate video about the Russian side of the Cyprus debacle soon, so stay tuned.

Putin and Euro remnants

For now, back to the Cyprus issue.

Merkel 2

It’s also very important to remember that Chancellor Angela Merkel of  Germany is seeking re-election this year. Germans are unhappy about having to contribute a large percentage to the bailout of various EU countries, therefore, Merkel needs to show how tough she is with the EU periphery in order to get re-elected. This is why she is especially hard and unbending with Cyprus. Let’s remember that a Cyprus delegation went to Russia trying to negotiate a rescue package outside the EU clutches, which infuriated Angela Merkel. The EU sent a parallel delegation to Moscow to convince Russia not to contribute, while Cyprus was given an ultimatum that if they seek money outside the ECB and IMF, the EU would cut all liquidity to the island. As a result of this arm twisting, Cyprus had to agree to taxing of its private accounts.

Why did the EU go specifically after private Cyprus bank accounts? The short answer is: because that’s where the money is. Cyprus economy consists of the overblown private banking sector, which dwarfs the rest of the economy, sort of like Iceland 2.0; and in addition to that, tourism and real estate. Much of tourism and real estate are related to offshore banking. Many who come to Cyprus for banking also buy second homes there. Incidentally, in addition to Russians, many Brits traditionally bank in Cyprus. Also, I am pretty confident, some Germans and other northern Europeans keep their money there as well. It shouldn’t be underestimated how interested Germany and other EU countries are in squashing this offshore haven.

What is going to happen next? With the liquidation of the tax heaven status, Cyprus economy will be finished. Tourism will dry out, and real estate prices will crash, as foreigners rush to sell their Cyprus homes. This will adversely impact all kinds of local businesses. Sorry to say, but however you look at it, the Cyprus future is bleak.

The banks have reopened a couple of days ago, but to this moment, people can only get no more than a 300 euros daily allowance out. How long will capital controls last? The authorities are promising only four weeks. However, historical indications are not good. In Iceland, for instance, capital controls have not ceased since the banking crisis and near-default two years ago.

How does this impact the rest of the EU and who’s next? As I mentioned before, this impacts everyone very directly as this is only a test case. I’m watching Italy, Spain and other PIIGS, as well as offshore havens like Luxembourg.

Cyprus-baking protests

How does it impact you and me, and the rest of the world? The nature of banking is changing, trust in Western political, banking and economic system is evaporating, and what has happened in Cyprus can happen anywhere in the world. Are all countries equally at risk? What to avoid and how to protect yourself? I’ll discuss these topics in the upcoming videos. Specifically, I’ll discuss the situation in the USA with the IMF Global and PFG Best/Peregrine Financial debacles.
