St.Petersburg Metro Bombing Tribute: Heroes and Grace Under Fire

Grace and Humanity under fire

The terrorist act in St. Petersburg Metro reportedly took 14 lives and injured a large number of people.

The bombed train Driver 1st Class Alexandr Kaverin (Машинист петербургского метро Александр Каверин) received much praise and became an instant celebrity after he reacted correctly and quickly in the face of danger. He managed to take the train out of the tunnel filled with smoke and drive it to the next station. Per reports, his actions saved many lives.

Also received commendations and state awards: Metro inspector who discovered the second bomb at another station Ploszhad Vostania  «Площадь Восстания». The second bomb was found in the fire extinguisher at that station. Due to the inspector’s quick actions it never went off. Another award was given to the station manager on duty, who prevented panic and organized the orderly evacuation of passengers.

Account of the event by salt-of-the-earth hero, Metro Train Driver Alexandr Kaverin:

“I heard a loud pop and train stopped in the tunnel. Smoke was filling the tunnel. There was no panic, but passengers initially gave conflicting accounts of what happened.

However, we managed to determine the real cause of emergency within one minute. We lucked out: the train stopped near tunnel exchange. After my emergency signal 3 other Metro employees quickly arrived at the scene and we were able to determine what happened.

After that, I tested the train and determined that movement was not impeded. Made decision to drive to the station. I’m not a hero, just acted according to instructions. We had terror acts before this. Some very smart people wrote our emergency instructions.

When we arrived at the station all doors opened right away, except the doors in the bombed car, which were jammed. I want to thank my train passengers: those who got out didn’t leave but began helping to pry the doors open, they basically had to tear and break these doors to help the victims inside.”

Video with awards and hero train driver interview (Rus):

 

After the explosion the emergency protocol was triggered and all Metro stations were shut down as the search for any potential explosives was underway. Metro closure was tough for the city of 5 million.

After the word of the bombing got out, private drivers and cabbies from all over the city flocked to the site. Not to make money of the tragedy, no. They offered free rides to those in need. City gas stations chipped in by offering free gas to drivers who took stranded passengers home for free.

Today near Red Square: huge crowd of Muscovites gathers to pay tribute to St. Petersburg bombing victims:

And in the midst of all this, GERMANY, AND SPECIFICALLY BERLIN, SHOWED ITS TRUE COLORS! I should qualify that it is the government of Germany and of Berlin, and Merkel personally who showed their true colors.

If you recall since day one I said Merkel was damaged goods and predicted sh was not to be trusted. Back in 2014 I received got backlash for it, with Europeans arguing with me. I’ll tell you more about Merkel’s future soon – stay tuned!

Hypocrisy: traditionally, in solidarity with terror attacks victims, the Brandenburg Gate would be lighted with colors of a country where a terrorist act had occurred. It had been previously lighted with the French flag after Paris attacks, Belgian, Israeli, Turkish, American flag (Orlando attack), etc.

When St. Petersburg attack took place – no reaction, NOTHING, Zero! Despite citizens’ demands, Berlin mayor refused to light the gate with the Russian flag colors, thus showing German govt’s and Merkel’s true colors (as if it was a secret before).

To the credit of Berliners, they’ve displayed a small replica of the Brandenburg Gate and painted it the colors of the Russian flag.

This video is a translation of the German alternative journalist’s rant about this shameful behavior, called, ‘Brandenburg Gate, show the colors of humanity.’  Note, on thumbnail you see Brandenburg Gate painted the colors of the Russian flag – this is a fotoshop done in protest by German activists. In reality, the Brandenburg Gate remains IN THE DARK.

 

AFTERWORD

I calibrated St. Petersburg as one of the cities I selected for my Earth Shift Report 17 Quality of Life Geo Calibrations study, and it turned out to be one of the highest calibrated and desirable major cities on the planet! This is despite harsh winters.

Much of the high calibration of St. Pete undoubtedly comes from its amazing culture and unparalleled beauty. But as we have seen, it also comes from the high quality of its citizens and their grace in the worst circumstances imaginable.

St. Pete is still a Hero City, even if it’s not called Leningrad any more. 

During WWII, the Hero City Leningrad experienced the most brutal in human history siege, perpetrated against it by German Nazis, resulting in mass starvation and genocide, and costing 650,000 civilian lives. But it never surrendered and it was never taken by the enemy.

Urgent! Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine

Very worrisome urgent news from #Ukraine and #Donbass, secretly linked to the recent multiple false flags in France!

It has become known that the Kiev junta is planning a new massive offensive on Donetsk and Lugansk around January 15. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Kiev is announcing a new mobilization to recruit anywhere between 50 and 200 thousand additional soldiers. Some of these are foreign mercenaries, including from Poland, US, France, Lithuania and Israel, among others.

Link to Sergey Lavrov’s announcement: Сергей Лавров: Украинские силовики готовят попытку силового решения конфликта в Донбассе. Lavrov said: “We have a very worrying information being presently double-checked, that Ukrainian army is preparing soon a new attempt of resolving the Donbass problem by brute force. This attempt will be a catastrophe. Ukraine isn’t denying that a new mobilization is supposed to draft anywhere between 50 and over 200 thousand new troops. In addition to this new problem, we still have no clarity on the status of various so-called ‘oligarchic battalions’ with no clear chain of command; there are still the illegal bands such as the right sector, roaming free. Today we discussed with German FM the fact that EU is sending a mission to Kiev, which we hope will help correct the problem with the illegal bands of well-trained, well-armed people who control a large part of Ukraine’s territory, many of whom are suspected of committing serious crimes against humanity, such as the mass graves found in Donbass.”

How is the #falseflag in France connected with this worrying announcement of a new offensive on Donbass?

If you watched the “Unity March” in Paris in response to the Charlie Hebdo and other attacks, you have noticed that Ukraine’s Poroshenko marched in the first row next to the French president Hollande and German chancellor Merkel. You would have also noticed Israel’s Netanyahu as well, one of the world’s biggest neocons and NWO pointmen. It is rumored that Hollande asked Netanyahu not to come, but Bibi came nevertheless. Video here.

Poroshenko, the head of the illegal Kiev junta government, whose hands are up to his elbows in blood of the Donbass and Odessa people, came to show his solidarity with what exactly in Paris? And Netanyahu?

The timing of the whole thing is very, very suspect yet again. Let’s recall that last July, when the EU bulked at the new round of sanctions against Russia, the #MH17 catastrophe promptly happened. This was immediately, despite all indications to the contrary, blamed on Russia and Donbass, which caused the ‘indignant’ EU to adopt a new harmful round of anti-Russian sanctions. Read: Ukraine’s Snowden: Whistleblower confirms MH17 was shot down by Ukraine, and my other articles on the issue, links to which you will find inside this link.

Let’s see what happened this time:

Recently, French president Hollande announced he wanted to play peacemaker between Donbass and Ukraine, Russia and EU. He flew to Kazakhstan and then made a surprise visit to Moscow; he also hinted that perhaps anti-Russian sanctions, damaging to both Russian and EU economies, could be lifted.

The pro-Russian, anti-sanctions moods have been growing in Europe as simple Europeans get sick and tired of the status quo.

I have shown how some Germans feel in my last piece: World Beware! What is Really Behind Angela Merkel’s Subservience to the US? In this piece I have also shown that Merkel of Germany is a completely sold-out and very dangerous agent of the Anglo-American NWO elites.

Honest Europeans don’t want war and animosity. It’s natural for people to want to live in peace and cooperation. As Europe again starts doubting the wisdom of sanctions and of alienating Russia, THE NEW REMINDER is necessary. Enter #CharlieHebdo massacre and other French false flags.

It is clear to me that #Poroshenko’s real goal in Paris was to meet with Hollande and Merkel in order to obtain EU’s green light for the massive new attack on Donbass, to begin around mid-January. As of the beginning of January 2015, based on the mood of their people, it appeared that EU leaders wouldn’t easily acquiesce to this new attack, nor would the EU people close their eyes to it. That mood was changed by the French false flags. The French false flag game changer was especially necessary in order to convince Hollande, who was wavering the most based on the feelings of his electorate.

I have said before that the US/NATO/NWO are a wounded, rabid beast painted into a corner, desperate to save its dying petrodollar system. Change is coming swiftly and it’s coming from Russia. Therefore, Russia and Putin have to be vilified, weakened and destroyed. This is their prime directive and primary goal.

I also said in previous articles that due to certain fiascos they suffered in Ukraine in 2014, US/NWO is now using better masterminds and a more creative approach. The false flags in France were meant to accomplish several things at once:

1. EU needs to curb muslim emigration and restrict free movement across borders – making people afraid of terrorism is the best way to justify doing that.

2. More surveillance and other controls will be authorized as a result of the French attacks; this time Europeans, like Americans after 9/11, won’t protest.

3. Hollande’s approval ratings were slipping badly. He felt he needed to play the ‘better relations with Russia’ card to improve them. The US/NWO masterminds are offering him an alternative here. As a result of the nation rallying against attacks, his ratings should go up. And look! No improvement with Russia is needed. I predict though that this fake rating improvement won’t last long for Hollande. People aren’t that stupid.

4. Since direct false flags involving Russia or Donbass won’t work any more as the majority of the world’s population is already on to them, this roundabout false flag is so much more useful! Here is how it works: create an image of a potential terrorist in the minds of Europeans, then superimpose this image onto several million of the Donbass people, and especially the Donetsk and Lugansk self-defence. Make them all look like terrorists. Make them seem similar to those who committed murder of the Charlie Hebdo journalists and other false flags.

Except, call them Russian terrorists. Tell Europeans that Russian terrorists, together with Chechen terrorists (remember the “Chechen terrorists” Boston bombing false flag?), invaded Donbass. Also, twist history and tell Europeans that it were Russians who invaded them in 1944…

This was the plan designed for Poroshenko by his handlers and successfully accomplished:

Dispatch another US puppet, #Nuland’s favorite disciple #Yatsenyuk, to Berlin. Have him say on the main German STATE TV CHANNEL ARD that “Russia attacked Nazi Germany and that Russia also attacked Ukraine.” More about this stunt here.

Then, have the same ARD TV channel, controlled by Merkel and her government, for the umptieth time say that it was Russia that downed MH17 in Ukraine, despite all facts to the contrary.

At the same time, have your Western handlers organize multiple false flags in France. Then have them organize a 3 million people march in Paris. Go there for a magnificent photo-op, happily wave to imaginary ‘fans’ in the crowd during a somber day of grief; register yourself next to Merkel, Hollande and Netanyahu as a dove of peace, while old women are starving and children are dying of bombings back home. Video of Poroshenko waving to the crowd in Paris.

After that, have your handlers equate the Donbass people fighting to protect their homes from the ukro-nazi invasion with fake muslim terrorists in France; have them spread fear of Russia invading Europe again… just like in 1944.

Just like it happened 1000, 300 and 100 years ago, they are again attempting to re-write history. Was it Russia that invaded Europe? Or was it the other way around? I must be hallucinating when I clearly recall that it was specifically GERMANY that invaded Russia/USSR in 1941. I must also be hallucinating when I recall that it was specifically FRANCE that invaded Russia in 1812. And these are specifically the ‘leaders’ of these two countries that are now huffing and puffing about Russia??!

Last step: Poroshenko meets with Hollande and Merkel to get an okay for the new round of destruction and killings in the long-suffering Donbass. Mission accomplished.

MY DIRE WARNING: Europeans, if you don’t want to learn, then don’t cry later, when it’s too late. You are being pushed in all the wrong directions by psychotic and evil forces that want to drag the world into the last war. Remember my predictions: Russia can always protect herself. It will be the EU that will be caught in the crossfire.

It appears Poroshenko has received his okay from the EU, hence the new mass mobilization campaign. Many in Ukraine hide from draft or even cross into neighboring countries to avoid it. The moral in the army is very low as for the most part Ukrainians don’t want to kill their brothers and sisters. But that doesn’t mean that these reluctant soldiers still can’t inflict new untold damage on the poor Donbass, while being threatened with their lives by the armed national guard nazis stationed behind them to watch their performance on battlefield. This is how ukro-nazis and their handlers turn the entire nation into killers.

The Donbass people are also worried that when NATO sees that Kiev army can’t accomplish the task of destroying the stubborn Donbass, they will start sending their own troops to Ukraine to squash Donbass. Interview with more in Russian.

I do see a problem with this scenario.

Predictions:

Looking into the future – as I said from the beginning of 2014 – Russia will not send troops to Ukraine, neither I see any possibility of a direct military confrontation between Russia and NATO/US.

That said, should NATO ILLEGALLY send troops to Ukraine, Russia will not sit idle. NATO/US simply won’t dare. Instead, they will continue making Russia’s life extremely difficult, inventing new acts of sabotage and false flags, trying to strangle Russian economy and the economy of Donbass, and do other despicable and vicious things they are masters of.

Another thing not to be discounted is Russian diplomacy. Lavrov and Putin are very hard at work trying to smooth out the situation. Larvov is diplomat from god – literally. His ability to create a more favorable reality cannot be underestimated.

Those readers who wrote to me that diplomacy is dead, think again. If not for Putin and Lavrov’s diplomacy last year, the world may have been tipped into the hot war already. Think of diplomacy as a way of resolving any crisis with much less blood and much cheaper than without it.

The worst case scenario will be avoided yet again. However, the festering wound that is Ukraine will remain until the people there are awakened sufficiently and until they take their power back. Unfortunately, this won’t happen for another year or two – at different times in each part of Ukraine. See Predictions for more.

The uprising leading to change has to mature internally. There is no other way. The people have started rising in key cities, such as Odessa, Zaporozhie, and especially, Kharkov. The Kharkov underground has made an announcement that they would be beginning an active stage this year, but that they also want to avoid the bloodshed and mistakes of Donbass. The new mass mobilization and plans to squash Donbass are undoubtedly related to this announcement and the most recent Odessa explosions.

Added! Video – Ukraine peace talks: Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, Russia & Ukraine finish meeting in Berlin. Includes announcement by Lavrov about the danger of mass mobilization and a new strike in Donbass!

This is the Germany I Recognize: Anti-NATO, Pro-friendship with Russia Demonstration

People waking up.

Berlin: demonstration for peace and against confrontation with Russia in front of the Federal President of Germany Joachim Gauck’s residence.

Slogans, songs and speeches – main points: ‘We are against fascism; we are indignant that again houses are being burned in Germany,’ ‘No to NATO,’ ‘Peace,’ ‘Friendship with Russia,’ “Gauck, you are incapable of anything but war-mongering,’ ‘NATO was never what it was created for. After NATO lost its fake stated purpose in 1989, its true purpose was suddenly revealed: to promote USA’s hegemony over the world. We have no reason to stay as part of the union that so openly states its global goals.’ ‘No to war and confrontation.’

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.”
