This is a new worthwhile translation by FT contributor and our friend, Nemo, aka, Stanislav Sokolov. It includes a translation of a piece by Rostislav Ishchenko, who’s one of the top Ukrainian analysts (now in exile in Russia). Ishchenko is Lada Ray approved and recommended.
Rostislav Ischenko wrote an article (in Russian) “Lost Independence”, about the recently celebrated in Kiev Independence day. I want to start this post with a translation of a short fragment from that article, followed by a report from Donbass – how Poroshenko’s words that he “loves Donbass” manifest into mortar shells falling onto people’s heads.
Ukraine celebrates the 25th anniversary of its independence. Independence from what?
From oil Tyumen and Yamal gas, from Yakutia diamonds, and from gold of Kolyma, from the world’s largest reservoir of fresh water – Lake Baikal, and from the incalculable riches of the Arctic shelf. From all this, and many other things has Ukraine been independent for the last twenty-five years. But two and a half years of Poroshenko’s reign achieved new accomplishments. Now Ukraine is also independent from Crimea with its unique climatic conditions, and from Donbass – two regions which gave more than 30% overall and nearly half of foreign exchange earnings to the budget.
Over these two and a half years Ukraine got independent of several millions of its citizens. Optimists say that of five, the pessimists – that of fifteen. Even during the Great Patriotic War, Ukraine was “freed” from Ukrainians with lower rates. So there are things in which Ukrainians can be more effective than Germans and their allies, who built a “united Europe” in the first half of the twentieth century. Back then, too, the Europeans wanted to see Ukraine in Europe, and neither did they promise that the Ukrainians would get there together with Ukraine. As a result, the country was cleared of 20% of its population over the three years [of Nazi-German occupation]. The current government cleared it by 25% over two and a half years.
At this rate, by 2025 Ukraine will become independent of its entire population. Presumably complete happiness will then come. No opposition. No dissatisfied. Only the eternal peace, reconciling the right and left, the Russian-speaking and the Surzhik-speaking, “Eurointegrationalists” and Eurasians, Orthodox and Uniate, rainbowy fanatics of homosexual love and the harsh traditionalists.
All this happened because first of all Ukraine got independent from common sense, having become a country of victorious absurdity already in the beginning of 1992. Opponents of exit from the USSR accounted for the majority of the population. They controlled the parliament. Executive power was so diligent and so quick to execute commands of the Union center (even before they were given) that Ukraine in the years of perestroika, was called a “stagnation reserve”, being contrasted with the “democratic Belarus”, in which social life was flourishing.
Ischenko’s conclusion is that Ukraine was a failed state from day 1 – because its elites were creating the state for their own enrichment and not for the benefit of the population, and now, when there is nothing left to plunder they are looking towards either US, EU or Russia to fix their problems:
But how well it all began. The largest, bigger than the Russian, European army, huge arsenals of the most modern weapons, half of the strategic aviation of the USSR, the third in the world (after Russia and the US) nuclear arsenal. 40% of the Union’s machine-building industry, about 50% of the Union’s Agriculture, 60% of the Union’s GDP. Ports, both commercial and military fleet, gas pipeline system, higher education institutions and world-famous scientific schools, highly qualified workforce and population, which ranked first in Europe in terms of education, social welfare, health care.
It seemed like it would never end. And yet, just 25 years later – the emptiness, catastrophe.
Now we say that the state has not materialised. But it didn’t happen now. It did not materialise from the first moment and hasn’t been a valid state for even a minute. Because, if the Ukrainian state manifested, at least at one point of its existence, it would never have reached such a life as now.
A state that somebody needs can’t not manifest. But a Ukrainian state is not even needed by the Ukrainian Nazis. They come as scavengers upon an already dead carcass, to have time to grab a piece of rotting flesh, and die next to the remains of Ukraine. For the Nazis, too, can not exist without a state. But they are finishing it off as they have nothing constructive to offer – in comparison with the program of the oligarchic elite, which they are coming to replace – except for “take everything and divide”, while dividing it in a new way.
However, there is nothing left to divide.
Meanwhile, the sad state of things in the East – how people of Donbass survive Poroshenko’s “love”. Watch the following documentary fragment of Vesti from 28th of August 2016, translated by me…
Warning! This post is for those who really want to know what’s happening in Ukraine, and for those who have a sense of humor. If it seems unusually sarcastic for my style, well, that’s because the idiocracy in Ukraine and USA has reached such heights that it’s not possible to talk about it seriously any more. Remember my old mini-series: “Crazy Asylum Called Ukraine”? Alas, Ukraine has regressed well past that stage. Shall we call the new stage: ‘IDIOCRACY PLUS’ ?
IDIOCRACY PLUS IN ACTION!
Just after US VP Joe Biden visited Kiev, where he was given a standing ovation in the Kiev Rada, two interesting events happened, demonstrating how far gone this ukro-nazi regime has become, and how hopeless it is for the future of the poor, long-suffering people of Ukraine.
UKRAINE’S TRANSATLANTIC BOSS JOE BIDEN VISITS KIEV
First, let’s see what happened during Biden’s visit. It wasn’t like a visit of any highly respected foreign leader, with red carpet rolled out and military guard at attention, as international diplomatic protocol might demand. Nope. First of, Vice President Biden isn’t equal to Poroshenko, the president of the ‘sovereign’ Ukraine. By protocol, he could be received by the leader of a nation for talks, but shouldn’t be greeted with any special pomp. Yet Poroshenko, and it seems, everyone in Kiev, were clinging to Biden for dear life throughout his visit.
In honor of Biden’s visit, the flag of Ukraine was taken down and the American flag installed above government building in Kiev. For any other country this would have been a major embarrassment, but not for Ukraine. The official Kiev was awfully proud of it.
It was clearly a visit of the master who came to inspect his colony and to assess the performance of his vassals and slaves. On previous visits, Biden was seated at the head of the table, with president Poroshenko by his side, breaking up with any and all international protocols. Perhaps Ukrainian elites wanted to show that ‘America is with us,’ as they say in Kiev. But all they confirmed for the whole world was that they were willing slaves of the USA.
This time, Biden talked to Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, the cabinet ministers together with other high level officials, and made a speech for the Rada. He has announced that Ukraine now needs to become like United States. Look at the American states, admonished Biden. They each have lots of local freedom in how they govern, while Washington conducts the all-American policies domestically and internationally. You have to become just like us and give enough freedom to each oblast. Read: Ukraine has to begin the process of federalization, so wholy hated by Kiev elites, ukro-nazis and nationalist battalions.
Biden’s speech in Ukraine Rada was met with standing ovation. I’m not sure the IQ of ukro-nazi commanders and russophobic clones elected into this Rada is high enough to grasp the meaning of what the boss was saying. So, let me translate.
WHAT BIDEN WAS REALLY SAYING:
In others words, dear Ukrainian folks, in case you’ve missed it, we, the great and almighty USA, are doing a 180 degree flip-flop. You wanted to create a unitarian state, where everyone would be forced to speak Ukrainian, even if they preferred to speak Russian? We tried very hard to help you accomplish just that in order to create anti-Russia out of Ukraine, since, mind you, THIS is our goal Number 1 for your country. But now we’ve come to the conclusion that we’ve destroyed your country and economy for nothing. Sorry about that.
It won’t work, you see. To salvage the situation and continue keeping Ukraine under our thumb, we need to ensure you, our little puppets, don’t lose your power overnight. Therefore, we’ve decided you need to give more autonomy to local elites in each region. Note, not to the people in each region, but to the elites, who can be bought and threatened, just like all of you.
So, dear Ukrainians, forget what we’ve told you before. It’s time to de-dust the dreaded FEDERALIZATION word – something the people of Donbass, Odessa, Crimea, Kharkov, Nikolaev and Zaporozhie demanded in the first place. The original 2014 demands of the South and East of Ukraine were in fact more modest than the scope of the autonomy we are suggesting for you now. Sorry that you had to kill thousands in Donbass, burn people alive in Odessa and throw tens of thousands in jail to deny people the federalization they wanted.
I know federalization is a dirty word in your vocabulary. We do need you to continue performing your role of vicious anti-Russia on Russian borders, so you can’t overtly call what we are asking you to do ‘federalization’ as this is what Russia is – the world’s largest FEDERATION.
Instead, let’s pretend you’ll be building a clone of the United States of America, however inappropriate such structure is for your country – and problem solved!
USA PLEDGES MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE
Oh yes, forgot to mention! Biden promised Ukraine $180 mln in military aid. This aid wouldn’t be monetary. Ukraine elites won’t see the money they can pocket right away. Nope, US will make them work for it. The aid is: past expiration date packaged food for the troops; outdated bullet-proof vests and other equipment; plus old tanks, ATVs and other rusty military hardware that otherwise USA would have to pay good money for China to scrap it.
Don’t you know it’s good Feng Shui to de-clutter one’s junk, clearing it out of one’s house? And it’s so much cheaper to give all this junk to Ukraine and let them re-purpose it, rather than paying China!
Some of this cluttering and corroding junk has already been observed moving through Odessa (after arrival to the local port), scaring local residents. Several ATVs stalled and had to be fixed en route.
SPIDERS IN A JAR: Yatsenyuk, Poroshenko, Saakashvili and Avakov
Yatsenyuk carried out by his b**ls in Ukraine parliament – you have to see this video to believe!
Many expected Yatsenyuk to resign after Biden’s visit. A huge rally gathered in front of the Rada during its session, anticipating the resignation announcement. Yatsenyuk’s rating is presently zero – literally. But Biden reconfirmed that they didn’t want the ruling ‘coalition’ to fall apart. Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk, rivals at the last elections, formed a ruling coalition to keep the majority in the Rada. The country is on the verge of the official default. Supreme Judge of Ukraine Biden has ruled that it’s not the time to call another round of Rada elections when Ukraine is about to go through the most difficult winter since WWII. Likely problems with heat, power and food are expected, in addition to the default.
Essentially, however unhappy the Transatlantic boss was with his vassals’ performance, he threw his support behind Yatsenyuk and let him stay. This created a huge disappointment in the Rada and on the street. A highly nationalistic and anti-Russian deputy from Western Ukraine, and a member of Petro Poroshenko’s Block to boot, took initiative. He approached the Rada podium while Yatsenyuk was giving speech, presented the confused PM of Ukraine with red roses, and then picked the tall, but skinny Yatsenyuk by his balls and tried to carry him out of the room.
A big brawl began between two very athletic groups of deputies: Poroshenko’s block vs. Yatsenyuk’s block. These deputies, by the looks of them, belonged either in the ranks of ukro-nazi battalions or in jail. Oops, my bad – they were in fact ‘members of the Ukraine’s ruling Poroshenko-Yatsenyuk coalition.’
It has to be noted that brawls are an extremely common occurrence in the Kiev Rada. These spiders in a jar, aka, Ukrainian patriots, take regular swipes at each other, often landing themselves in the hospital.
The Tragic Comedy Called Ukraine: public row of two international criminals AVAKOV AND SAAKASHVILI
The video is self-explanatory, but I’ve added the summary of what went on for your complete understanding. Let’s just say, in this tragic comedy called ukro-nazi / USA-ruled Ukraine, the biggest farce is still ahead.
Summary of what is happening in the video:
Ukraine Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and the Washington-appointed ‘governor’ of Odessa, ousted ex-president of Georgia Mikeil Saakashvili, had a loud public row, calling each other thieves and hurtling glass, during the National Reform Committee meeting, presided by Poroshenko. The video posted by many sources, including Avakov himself on his Facebook page, went viral.
In it, Saakashvili says that his goal in Ukraine is to root out corruption; he names Avakov as one of the biggest thieves, accusing him of shielding from justice major corruption schemes. There is a heated exchange, in which Avakov makes fun of how Saakashvili speaks Russian (‘be, be, be…’). The overly-emotional Caucasus native with over-inflated ego, Saakashvili, gets angry and demands apology: “No one has ever talked to me like that!” Then Saakashvili proceeds yelling out at Avakov even louder accusations.
Avakov in turn accuses Saakashvili of being a thief. (For once I agree – they both are mega-thieves). Saakashvili goes on to call Avakov Ukraine’s biggest thief, who stole billions, and says that he, Saakashvili, is clean. “I said before to Russians: try to find my money, and they couldn’t! I tell you the same – find any of my money. You won’t! I am poor, unlike you, but I have honor! I haven’t stolen millions and billions, like you!”
Avakov loses it and throws at Saakashvili a thick glass (real, heavy glass, not plastic) full of water, dousing with water and waking up in the process Ukraine’s foreign minister Klimkin, peacefully sleeping next to him. Presiding Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk try to restore order, asking Avakov not to swear. Yet, the Russian swears continue flying back and forth.
The thing is that they all are speaking Russian – the only language they all speak well enough. Forget Ukrainian – no Ukrainian spoken here at all. Ukraine junta, unfortunately, gathered all the dregs of the post-Soviet space and of the Russian World. For lack of any substance in the ranks of Ukraine’s Idiocracy, the Russian swears is what unites these spiders in a jar.
In the end, Avakov throws his trump card at Saakashvili:
Avakov to Saakashvili: Go back to your country and leave mine alone. You’ve already destroyed your country, now you are destroying mine!
Saakashvili yells back: I am a Ukrainian, It is my country!
(Funny thing coming from an ex-president of Georgia, with no roots in Ukraine. The citizenship of Ukraine was given to him in haste after US dragged him in and put him in charge of the most strategic of the remaining Ukraine territories: the prized Odessa Oblast.)
Avakov: No, I am Ukrainian, it’s my country, not yours!
At that moment, the depressed-looking Poroshenko finally puts his foot down and announces that the meeting is adjourned.
CURTAIN. END OF THIS ACT OF THE TRAGIC COMEDY CALLED UKRAINE.
More to follow!
In reality, Saakashvili is wanted in Georgia on charges of corruption and embezzlement, together with his ‘team’ that he brought with him to Ukraine. There is an international warrant for his arrest. Saakashvili was recently stripped of his Georgian citizenship, following his urgent receipt of Ukraine citizenship. So, in that regard, he really is a ‘Ukrainian,’ since no other country would have him.
It is a well-known fact that Saakashvili’s salary as Odessa governor is being paid by the US State Department. This flamboyant clown bragged about it himself, probably to demonstrate how close he was to the US. Salaries to his entire ‘team,’ wanted in Georgia, are also paid by the US. Saakashvili had brought with him a couple dozen various deputies, who have taken over all the lucrative posts in Odessa, and a couple of Kiev ministries as well.
Based on this, who do you think Saakashvili answers to? Certainly NOT to the people of Odessa and Ukraine.
Avakov really is a Ukrainian citizen. But the irony of the whole exchange isn’t lost on those who know his background. Arsen Avakov is a Russified, but decidedly non-Russian/non-Ukrainian name. He is either Armenian or Azerbaijani (prob. Armenian). In other words, an Armenian/Azerbaijani and Georgian (both from Caucasus!) yell at each other that Ukraine is their country, while the real ethnic Ukrainians in the room sit silently like the sheeple they are, watching apathetically the crawling foreign takeover of their country.
This isn’t about Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Georgians, Russians, Ukrainians or Jews. Ukraine is a multinational territory that those with ulterior motives try to squeeze into a unitarian, single-language model that doesn’t suit it. The problem is that, regardless of nationality, US puppet masters put in charge of Ukraine their agents: Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, Avakov, Saakashvili, finance minister Jareska (US citizen, former banker and State Dept employee), as well as scores of Georgians, who are under criminal charges in their country, Lithuanians, Poles and others. Turks and Islamists control Ukraine through their agents, Crimean Tartar Mejlis, who have recently blown up power lines to Crimea. Canada and US also control the country through ukro-nazi battalions, western Ukraine extremism and Zionist Chabad.
The Transatlantic boss, personally presiding over this whole horror show, is Joe Biden.
Let’s recall the slogan of the 2014 Kiev maidan that resulted in this corrupt government’s takeover. The slogan in Ukrainian was: “Pamiatai chuzhinets’ – zdes gospodar ukrainets’!” This translates as: “Remember foreigner – Ukrainian is the master here!” This was supposed to be a warning for the “Russian aggressors.”
Oh poor, blind Ukrainian dupes!
Are there any normal and reasonable people left in Ukraine?
There are other normal politicians, journalists, advocates and citizens, some of whom were forced to flee Ukraine due to persecution, and others stayed to hold the fort, despite enormous risks. One of those who was forced to escape is ex-Ukraine Prime Minister Nikolay Azarov, who served under Yanukovich. After the country tried the poison pill of Yatsenyuk, Azarov is suddenly recalled with nostalgia, as a true professional.
Some people worth mentioning are, among others: Alexey Zhuravko, activist from Kherson, and Grigory Kvasnyuk from Odessa. These people deserve respect for telling the truth and for keeping the tiny flame of hope alive. They both are important to the unfolding story of the BATTLE FOR EURASIA, which I am trying to document on my blog and in my Earth Shift Reports.
I will have some very valuable intel, impossible to find in English, in my upcoming Earth Shift Report. In it you’ll see me mention the names of the above whistleblowers, among others. Stay tuned to the upcoming:
The whole truth about Zionist Chabad and who is really behind it! Chabad World Headquarters: Brooklyn, USA; Eurasian Headquarters: Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine! Who were really Khazarains and what happened to them? Who really are the Cossacks? The real reason US wanted Ukraine! The story of some betrayals – Why Kharkov and Dnepropterovsk? Why did the Ukraine foreign takeover plan hit the wall?
Putin vs. Russian oligarchs! Ukrainian oligarchs: Poroshenko, Kolomoysky & the gang! Spiders in a jar and their Transatlantic masters: Ukraine’s dirty underbelly exposed! The real reason the new ‘maidan’ is NOT possible in Ukraine, despite many predicting it!
Due to the avalanche of explosive news surrounding Ukraine, Crimea and the entire Black Sea, coupled with the sheer volume of material, I hope to release the new reports in January of 2016. That’s my plan.
I will try to take some time off to celebrate and relax during this Christmas/New Year’s. Keeping with the spirit, I plan to do lighter than usual posts and videos during this Holiday Season. But of course, the reality has a way of always interfering with our best plans. So, this Holiday Season, I’ll go with the flow, depending on what new geopolitical curve balls the ongoing EARTH SHIFT may throw at us.
Dear readers, I suggest you do the same.
Stay tuned for the future Holiday posts, including the Year 2015 wrap-up and the look ahead, at the Year 2016!
You often hear me spell out the position of the Russian government, Russian people and personally Vladimir Putin towards various issues, including Ukraine.
Throughout my many articles and specific PREDICTIONS, I have also predicted the sequence of the Ukraine events, which are materializing little by little, one of them being that Ukraine will eventually turn around to join Russia and Eurasian Union.
You also heard me predict that Russia would under no circumstances send troops to Ukraine or take a bait to start a hot war. In fact I predicted that Russia and Putin would do everything to create a roadmap for peaceful solution – and that they would succeed. I also emphasized Putin/Russia’s amicable and patient stance on Ukraine, which will long-term foster trust and understanding that Russia is Ukraine people’s true friend.
I also said that Russia would wait till Ukrainian people mature enough to understand that they got themselves into this no-way-out situation, allowing them to heal and shift their reality using inner resource on their own time.
I want you to hear the same predictions straight out of the mouth of the man who shapes and executes the policies and events we so often talk about.
At a meeting in Crimea, Vladimir Putin spoke about Ukraine and its future. I have translated this quote:
I am confident that despite all current difficulties, the situation in Ukraine will correct itself and Ukraine will again start developing, developing positively. Ukraine will eventually abandon the shameful practice which we are observing today, namely, when this whole huge European country has been placed under foreign management, when the key posts in the government and regions are taken over by foreign citizens. I think all this is humiliating for the Ukrainian people.
Undoubtedly, in time what is happening will receive the fair judgement of the Ukrainian people. Ukraine will get back on its feet to develop in a positive way and to build its future together with Russia.
Let me first say that in the global scheme of things, the language separation is how they are able to keep us all divided and distrustful of each other. If we don’t understand each other’s language, we cannot know the truth. It’s so much easier to pull the wool over people’s eyes and get them to listen to your own propaganda. Perhaps because of that I initially became a linguist. It will be so important for humans to eventually develop a global language that would become the means of close communication among all.
In this respect, English-speakers are in by far the worst situation. Usually, people from other countries have learned some foreign languages, including English. European citizens tend to speak several languages fluently. Many Russian citizens would often know a regional language or two and a bit of a foreign language (alas, not well enough), in addition to Russian. But the US citizens tend to speak only English since it is assumed that everyone anywhere would understand you. This seeming victory of the English language, coupled with absolutely horrendous school instruction and lack of travel experience, harbors a seed of terrible defeat and future isolation. And this is in the country that prides itself on being the melting pot of immigrants!
All I can say is that the world is changing. It is my advice to my American and other English-speaking readers to begin learning foreign languages – FAST!
The translation conundrum:Presently, we have to translate manually anything that may be of value. Practically every day I come across the important news from Russia, Ukraine, Crimea, Pridnestrovie, Balkans, Eurasia, etc. Every time I do, I want to share them with my readers. However, translation of a 4-5 min video with subs and editing may take up to 10-15 hours of work. Text translation takes less time, but it’s also a voluminous undertaking. Because of that, good translations are so rare and good translators are so valued.
As to the subs:I’m not a techie either, but if any readers are, please help us all by posting instructions on how to do that in the comment section! Please share with all!

My top recommendation – the best Novorossia News channel
(staffed and funded by volunteers and donations):
YouTube channel News-Front. It is the best source of up-to-date news from Donbass, Novorossia and Crimea. You have seen me sometimes translate or reference bits from this channel.
The only thing they have with embedded English subs is the 2-min daily Novorossia News Summary (with Elena Krasovskaya) – Rus: Сводка новостей Новороссии. Click on this link to access the playlist on their channel, or go to channeland scroll down till you see this title in Russian. Their subs aren’t super, but you get the idea.
They also have the following programs, but only in Russian (if anyone finds a good way of translating for YT, please do share as then everyone would be able to listen to this channel):
Some interviews are with real residents of various areas of Ukraine, who dare to tell the truth of how they live, some with Novorossia soldiers and politicians, and others – with people internationally and experts.
News-Front also publishes very nitty-gritty and truthful documentaries about the Donbass war, including a lot of pretty graphic stuff. Those who want to see the magnitude of destruction and horror there, go to these playlists:
Generally, there is precious little truth and real deal news translated into English from Novorossia and other parts. It is only the enthusiasts and volunteers such as myself and some others that make it happen.
I want to recommend to you the efforts of one such enthusiast and FuturisTrendcast friend, Nemo, who is originally from Russia and resides in Scandinavia. He just did an important translation, which I recommend everyone checks out.
For those who speak German, I think there is more truth available, as some Germans, including certain German media, as well as some Russians living there, engage in translating. I have to say that Germans are much more awake than people in the English-speaking world; however, their dissent gets suppressed all the time by their own government, working in tandem with the US forces.
Still, certain bits of truth make it to the German MSM. Under no circumstances can I say the same about the English-speaking MSM!
A couple of pieces with German translation – incidentally, these are also from News-Front DE (translated by German volunteers):
Students of Crimea respond to students of Ukraine:
Here are some latest telling statistics from Ukraine:
The latest poll shows that 84% of Ukrainians want Russian President Vladimir Putin as the leader of their country. This effectively means that the vast majority of Ukrainians understand into what kind of abyss the Kiev junta is leading them.
Despite the overwhelming anti-Russian and anti-Putin propaganda spread by Kiev and Ukraine MSM, the population isn’t blind. Ukrainian people, most of whom are tired of war and want peace, start recalling the Chechen conflict and its swift and brilliant resolution by Putin. At the time Putin came in, he had on his hands the devastating Chechen war and all of Russia with destroyed economy and depressed population. Back in the 90s, I remember some Russians telling me dejectedly that the Chechen war would never end – and those people weren’t simpletons; to many well-known business people and analysts the Chechen war at the time seemed like a perma-conflict with no way out.
The conflict in Ukraine, to those who are ruled by emotions and lack perspective, also seems like a conflict without resolution. But it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Back then, Putin found the right person whom he entrusted the leadership of Chechnya; the agreements and necessary deals were struck and kept, the place was rebuilt and the entire situation was reversed to the point that the majority of Chechens are presently some of the biggest Russian patriots.
It is no wonder that Ukrainians want Putin. They should take the ticket and get in line.
Another poll suggests that presently 61% of Ukrainians want to leave their country permanently. Just two years ago, polls showed that such high percentage of those who wanted to emigrate only existed among the young generation. Now the population in general, including those who work and the elderly, want to leave the country. (Both poll numbers are from this interview (Rus).)
I explained previously that once Ukraine separated from Russia in 1991, people stopped believing in their country. Very quickly after, the most educated, thinking and capable people left. The vacuum was filled with inferior element from western and central Ukraine, who were purposefully appointed to top positions and who systematically removed the old, deeply cherished cultural and inter-generational connections with Russia and the Russian world, substituting them with invented lies. All this process was orchestrated and directed from abroad, by those from the US, Canada, Poland, Romania, Lithuania and Germany who wanted revenge and destruction of Russia and the Russian World.
The population of Ukraine under USSR was 54 mln people. Before 2014 it officially decreased to 45 million. However, in the past 23 years of ‘nezalezhnost’ = independence, 5-7 million Ukrainians have been working in Russia and probably 1.5-2 million in the West. Crimea and Donbass secession decreased the population by another 5-7 million. Another 3 million or so are refugees that left Ukraine for Russia or any other country they could. Therefore, the real population of Ukraine is now no more than 30 million people – down from 54 million in 1990.
Another bit of news: those anti-junta politicians and journalists of various political views who escaped from Ukraine after the 2014 coup are starting to organize an alternative government in exile. The organization, whose first conference took place in Moscow, is called the ‘Fund for the Salvation of Ukraine.’ It is headed by the former PM of Ukraine under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov. Unlike Yanukovich, Azarov is remembered positively in Ukraine and beyond for the quiet, but productive work he had done for the country. These are some long overdue, awkward first steps, and the people behind this alternative government are the old Ukraine politicians, who generally still have a decent reputation, such as Azarov, Vladimir Oleynik (MP from western Ukraine, presently in exile in Russia) and Igor Markov (MP from Odessa, now also in exile). Because of that, they may be capable of uniting various forces around them.
The country needs a completely new crop of politicians, who would be able to lead it into the future. The old crop may not be up to this task, but at least it is moving along. Except for Igor Markov, who is a younger and rather capable politician, these old political hands can be good instructors, taking the new politicians under their wing and allowing them to learn. There has been a talk about such development. The fact that it’s moving along indicates that the junta is feeling the pinch and its end is getting closer.
Recall my timeline for Ukraine’s complete turnaround: 2016-18.
Also recall what I said many times before: Ukraine can only be rebuilt and prosper in a union with Russia. Any attempts at dealings and mergers with the West on any level will bring Ukraine to destruction. However, after what happened, Russia won’t rush saving Ukraine this time.
Ukraine will have to provide some pretty good guarantees that it can be trusted, one of them being a complete weeding out of all malignant weeds. By weeding I mean getting rid of ukro-nazis, Western-ruled MSM, unfriendly oligarchs and US influence. This will be quite a feat and it will take some time. Another difficulty is that there really are no politicians in Ukraine who can accomplish it. Only DNR and LNR so far have people who can bring things to fruition.
Ukraine will have to produce the kind of people who are a match to the formidable task ahead.
The only thing… what is now called Ukraine will most likely bear a different name in several years time.
Over one thousand Ukraine citizens gathered in front of the US embassy in Kiev and attempted to pass on to the embassy workers their petition to Barack Obama and the American people, demanding that US stop igniting civil war and interfering in Ukrainian affairs; they also demanded the removal of US troops and weapons from Ukraine. No embassy worker came out to them and guards refused to take their petition. They resorted to gluing the petition to the embassy wall.
Posters in the video below and speeches are in Ukrainian. Posters say: “USA = War,” “USA – out of Ukraine,” “USA invaded Ukraine,” “Donbass.” They chant: “Yankee go home” and “Out of Ukraine!”
Notice how many people are hiding their faces from cameras!
I also want to point out how INCREDIBLY meek and polite all the people are. The ring leader, young woman in pink asking the guard to accept her petition, is especially polite and nice. She keeps saying “Bud’ laska,” which means in Ukrainian ‘please,’ or more precisely, ‘be so kind.’ No one says a word out of the norm, no one does anything even remotely unseemly. After neatly gluing the petition to the embassy wall, they even wipe the wall from any excess glue and polish it to perfection!!! See the woman talking to the guard at 5:15; see them wiping down the wall at 8:10.
I want everyone to note all that, because in the next video of the June 11, 2015 attack on the Russian consulate in Kharkov you will see the opposite picture!
Added: by reader request, here is a summary of the lady in pink speech and exchange with the guard:
In the beginning of the video she says, addressing the tall, blank US embassy wall: “It won’t be as you want. It will be the way it has to be. Ukraine! Yankee go home! Soldiers of USA are raping Ukraine, etc.” People also chant continuously: “Out!” and “Come out to face the people!”
The lady in pink is asking the guard how she could pass on the petition. He says she can’t. She asks why not. No clear answer – just can’t. If not, can we give it to you? He says he won’t take it. She says, you must have some channels of communication with those inside, please ask someone to come out. He says he won’t do it. She must have said ‘be so kind’ about 10-20 times during this super-polite inquiry. Then she says, fine, then we just want to leave it here, by the door. She goes on, “Does any Ukrainian here have Scotch?” Since no one replies, she gets the glue stick out of her purse and they glue the petition to the wall.
The top of the petition sheet, with a fist on it, has two words, which together represent a play on words. They sound the same in both Russian and Ukrainian: “pravda” means ‘truth’ as one word. When it’s 2 words: ‘prav’ + ‘da’ as on the sheet, it means ‘I am in the right’ + ‘yes.’ I just gave you a glimpse of how the word ‘pravda’ was formed in the fist place. 😉
Notice how many English words it takes me to transcribe the meaning of one all-encompassing short word ‘pravda.’ And they say that Russian words are too long and complex, which hinders the development of the language and the nation! This is why, as one linguistical theory still repeated till today postulates, US and UK, with their shorter English words, were able to overtake Russia and USSR. Those who read my blog, know that’s all ‘bull crap in chef’s salad.’
This obviously is yet another conspiracy to try to make Russians feel inferior – a feat that actually temporarily succeeded – but not any more.
The linguistical conspiracy that I am unraveling now, along with related historical conspiracy, has roots in processes that took place 1000-300 years ago in Europe and Russia. I am deep into investigation and reconstruction of those events. I will happily share the results of my findings with all once my study is complete.
Oh, and please remind me to tell you all the real etymology of the English word ‘truth,’ as well as words such as ‘lady,’ ‘lad,’ ‘Scotland,’ ‘London.’ You are gonna love it! I personally find it very funny. But no spoilers!

Video of the rally in front of the US embassy in Kiev:
I didn’t want to post the video below because it’s too disgusting and disturbing. But I think it’s necessary to show what is really going on in Ukraine and what dark forces have taken it over. Notice the contrast with the excessively polite and meek protest in the first video. These thugs, unlike the peaceful people in the first video, aren’t hiding their faces. They obviously don’t have anything to fear – people fear them. Also notice that there are very few people in Kharkov, but the destruction and mayhem they cause is huge; their threat is so extreme that UN emergency retrieval vehicles are sent!
Russia celebrated The Russia Day on June 12. This is a new holiday, established after 1991. I can’t say I personally care for it, but it is widely celebrated. On this day, a gang of Ukrainian extremists gathered in front of the Russian consulate in Kharkov and attacked/vandalized the building. The police made some weak attempts to protect those who tried to exit, but did nothing to prevent vandalism. Emergency UN vehicles had to pick up and whisk away any consulate workers who happened to be stranded inside. This is the second attack on the same Kharkov consulate in one year; also, last year there was an attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev.
It is well-known that Kharkov, together with Odessa, are two of the most pro-Russian cities in the left-over Ukraine territory; therefore, the Kiev junta makes a special effort to invade the city with ukro-nazi thugs in order to intimidate the population and shift the balance of power. See the very educational and telling footage below for details.
The thugs, who throw paint at the building and who try to attack cars, yell mostly IN RUSSIAN (note that in the video above everything was in UKRAINIAN), except some phrases in poor English. This is done on purpose – to stick it, so to speak. The message is: ‘See, we have successfully created anti-Russia out of Kharkov, where those who speak your language hate you.’ Therefore, we are dealing here with the most disgusting dregs of society and with the most destructive agenda.
There are very rude words on the asphalt mentioning Putin, which I won’t translate.
They yell in a mix of Russian and broken English, while throwing rocks and paint at the consulate building and cars: “Where are the UN peacekeepers? Shame! Where is the help we are looking for? We (!?) are the peacekeepers in Donbass. Shame on you, we need help (LR: they are right on that count; they really do need a lot of help – of the psychiatric variety). Where is the NATO contingent (!) we are waiting for? We are disappointed in police and SBU (LR: for not letting them destroy the Russian consulate and kill everyone there). Where are the peacekeepers in Donetsk and Lugansk? Show the whole world, show to Putin that he is mother***er (AGAIN IN RUSSIAN). Pay attention at 4:03 – one of these geniuses says, perhaps thinking it sounds profound: “If you have to make peace with terrorists, make peace with ISIS.”
In January 2015 I wrote about possible false flags in Ukraine. Just recently we discussed the potential Chernobyl 2.0 catastrophe in Ukraine as the radioactive woods around Chernobyl caught on fire, something the firemen were extinguishing without proper gear and protection. If Chernobyl 2.0 got out of control, this would have been a continent-wide problem, especially for the nearby Kiev and the EU, due to prevailing continental winds. It seems Kiev either managed to control the fire, or simply hushed it up (and we know who helped them to do the latter).
But now everyone, including EU, is worried about the new occurrence: since yesterday, a giant oil and gas depot is burning near Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Fire has been raging for over 24 hours and so far the firefighters are powerless to stop it. One section of the oil depot, with 17 oil reservoirs, has already been destroyed and the fire spread to the section No 2. As of yesterday: more than one half of oil reservoirs already burned down; 1 person died, scores wounded.
The sky is black with soot and smoke, people are told to wear damp cloths over their faces, but little else is being explained to them. The situation is dire. Local residents are being evacuated in the 2 km radius and it may be expanded to 10 km.
To add insult to injury, a giant Ukraine arms depot (Ukraine army arsenal) is located only 50 meters from the burning oil depot. Next to all this is located a natural gas pipeline and gas storage depot… And don’t ask what kind of genius placed these three next to each other!
According to experts, if the fire reaches gas papeline and gas reservoirs, there will be a giant explosion. And how will the military arsenal nearby react? It’s anyone’s guess. Kiev, population nearly 3 mln, is located just 20 or so km from there and it will be in direct harm’s way.
Meanwhile, EU is bracing itself for possible acid rains as a result of the heavy black soot rising high into the sky.
Is anyone surprised? Not me. This should have been expected. I predict that more Ukraine catastrophes, whether real false flags or simply accidental – man-made or natural – disasters will continue taking place.
All this is happening in Ukraine as a direct result of the civil war, brutal violence, gross mismanagement and country-wide collapse. These are all direct and predictable consequences of the February 22, 2014 violent coup by Ukraine oligarchs and ukro-nazis, backed by the West. The current power in Kiev runs exclusively on violence, hatred and denial; plus, corruption, betrayal of the country’s interests and wholesale theft of the few remaining Ukrainian assets and resources to foreign interests. The only result of such intentions can be self-destruction. What is now in Kiev is not a government – it’s a demolition crew, working hard to destroy what little is left of the poor Ukraine, on orders from Washington.
Unfortunately, after ukro-nazi regime killed off, threw in jail or chased out of the country all honest and smart people, there is no one left to protest or to even understand what’s really going on. As such, Ukrainians are meekly following their path to the slaughter house, organized for them by the enemies, both foreign and domestic (and we all know who those are).
I predicted back in 2014 that Ukraine would be squeezed out of all juices and tossed off like that useless dry lemon skin… And here it is. Incidentally, EU is already indicating it’s tired of Ukraine (and, frankly, I don’t blame them), saying they can’t continue paying for it… Again, as predicted in 2014! More inPREDICTIONS on top bar.
Here are some of the videos of the fire:
Ukraine and the EU may suffer from acid rain, following a huge blaze at an oil and gas storage facility near Kiev. Local residents described to RT a Silent Hill-like picture of the area, saying that black sky, rain and smoke are everywhere. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/8ofn8p
The evacuation of weapons from the Ukraine army arsenal located in the Vasilkovsky region of the Kiev oblast has begun, according to authorities. The giant arms depot is located 50 meters from the burning oil depot.
The very latest info and video from RT!
Huge plumes of black smoke billow from burning oil depot near Kiev.Published on Jun 9, 2015
A massive fire has been raging at a Ukrainian oil depot on the outskirts of Kiev. It has triggered a series of explosions that reportedly killed up to four people. The Ukrainian authorities have confirmed three firefighters were among the fatalities. There are fears the toxic fumes could now threaten locals in Kiev.

Not that it’s news to anyone that #Soros’s greedy claws and corrupt mind have been leached onto #Ukraine along with those of his neocon friends #Nuland, #McCain and others, but it’s nice to see a clear, tangible proof in the form of emails.
Ukrainian hacker group #CyberBerkut claims to have emails revealing billionaire George Soros’s close involvement in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia over the past year. In these emails, Soros provides anti-Russian ‘counseling’ and political/financial advice to the Kiev junta and US governments, as well as NATO. He allegedly advises US to provide lethal military hardware to Ukraine and NATO to train Ukraine troops on Romanian territory. He also advises to manipulate the perception of financial stability in the region.
How did billionaire ‘chocolate king’ Petr Poroshenko manage to grow his fortune 7-fold in one year, while being Ukraine’s president? This is at the same time his country is in a state of civil war, unable to pay off its debt and about to declare default, poverty is overwhelming, pensions are cut, inflation reaches 270% and grivna is in free fall. Poroshenko is also the only Ukraine oligarch to increase his assets – all other oligarchs have lost during 2014-2015.
May Day (Pervomay) is traditionally celebrated in Russia and beyond with flowers, songs and happy outings.
Early video of May Day celebrations in Russia: #Vladivostok and #Khabarovsk (the Far East) mass parades on video. #Moscow has several different parades and rallies – early footage from the Red Square rally.
Sorry I have to talk about gruesome subjects such as #Chernobyl, #falseflags and #Donbass war in #Ukraine on a day like this. But it is today’s reality and it’s important for humanity to open our eyes and see the truth – so we can move forward.
As you will also see below, historically, May Day and Chernobyl have become intrinsically connected.
FREE Earth Shift Report 4: MAY DAY or CHERNOBYL 2.0?
Does Chernobyl fire threaten a new nuclear disaster? Who’s behind it? Who will be affected most? What really happened in 1986? False flags and other news from Ukraine. New warnings and predictions.
According to the official Kiev, the raging forest fire in the Chernobyl exclusion zone has been localized by Ukrainian firemen. Kiev admits to the fire continuing full force over the area of 70 hectares, with additional areas smoldering. According to various sources, the fire has spread over a large area of woods 20 km from the buried reactor and near the nuclear waste burial sites. The waste from the Chernobyl catastrophe and other Ukrainian nuclear sites has been buried in the area since 1986.
However, there is other nuclear waste in the area as well. In 2014 I wrote about the new contract the Kiev junta signed with EU and US: according to this contract, Ukraine’s Chernobyl now serves as a burial ground for the West’s nuclear waste. In the country whose economy is shut and unable to perform its normal functions this is one of the few remaining ways to make money. For more read: Ukraine Scandals! USA Raids Ukrainian Gold and EU Sends Nuclear Waste.
The problem with the fire in such area is that it re-awakens radio nuclides that have been dormant in the ground and trees all these years. Trees absorbed a lot of radiation from the Chernobyl catastrophe, saving enormous number of lives in 1986. The radiation thus awakened then becomes volatile, spreading with winds. If inhaled, the radiation is much more dangerous than the ground radiation. Some scientists go as far as suggesting that Chernobyl 2 is upon us.
There is a lot of conflicting information coming out of Kiev. If true, localization of fire is a positive. Per Ukraine sources, the fire is still raging, but isn’t spreading. However, according to Greenpeace, there are 10,000 hectares of the radioactive Chernobyl forest that is presently burning. Greenpeace says this number is based on their analysis of satellite images. According to unnamed sources the fire has originated inside of one of the nuclear waste burial sites.
There is a panic in Kiev and those areas of Europe that are likely to get affected. I am being told that doctors in Kiev recommend locals smear liquid iodine over their skin, drink iodine, and also drink vodka. On the other hand, experts are saying that the kind of radiation that is spreading through the air as fire and wind activate radio-nuclides cannot be helped by iodine. A better advice is to close windows and doors, avoid going out, and if you must, use respiratory masks.
According to Kiev journalist in exile Yury Kot, the smell of smoke and soot has already reached Kiev, which means that the wind is presently blowing towards the capital, some 100 km south of Chernobyl. Politicians are already evacuating their children, while telling people that everything is under control. Yury Kot video in Russian.
The difficulty is that today is May 1, or May Day, which traditionally was celebrated with parades and outings all over the USSR, and generally, the Russian world (elsewhere around the world, as well). Will it be allowed under the current junta is a question mark. On May 9th, many in Kiev were planning to celebrate the traditional Victory Day despite junta’s prohibitions and threats of physical harm. Will they still come out? Is it dangerous? Was it a deliberate provocation to sabotage celebrations? How is all this connected? Questions abound.
If you recall, I did warn in January about the possibility of false flags or provocations related to nuclear stations in Ukraine. I also recently said in a reply to one of the readers that the Mother Earth is protesting against the humans’ treatment of herself, the Earth’s animals, and each other. Therefore, we get all kinds of disturbances from the Mother Earth. Unfortunately, Ukraine turned into an open-ended and unpredictable Pandora’s Box of disasters, just as I had warned. The only thing is a certainty: Ukraine will continue experiencing turmoil and disasters, unless and until the people awaken sufficiently, and the EU understands fully what they have gotten themselves into. But for that to happen Ukraine has to sink to the very bottom, so it could rise again. It appears there is still ways to go to reach that illusive bottom – so far it seems the fall of Ukraine is endless and bottomless. Although, I do notice first signs of awakening; it is happening, slowly but surely. Such things are impossible without extreme shake-ups. Remember my timeline for Ukraine: it is 2016-2018. We are still some time away from this timeline. See PREDICTIONS and OLIGARCH WARS for more.
So far, the nuclear false flag many predicted materialized as burning radioactive forests around Chernobyl. But warnings about a possibility of another nuclear plant disaster (Ukraine has 4 in total), continue to sound.
In Chernobyl it seems to be an act of God, or Mother Nature herself. Or is it?
On the map, we can clearly see that Chernobyl is located close to the river Dnieper, flowing into Black Sea. If USSR didn’t contain ground water contamination, the entire Black Sea basin and at least part of the Mediterranean could’ve been contaminated.
Interesting coincidence: last time Chernobyl woods experienced a fire was 1992, after Ukraine and Russia split up after the collapse of the USSR. let’s look at the map. Not only Kiev is next door, but Belarus, with capital Minsk, is right up there as well. If I were karma and wanted to send a powerful, or even shocking, message to humans that they are on the wrong path and that Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians (or rather Malorussians and Novorussians) should stay together, this would probably be top of my list.
The Chernobyl exclusion zone is located in the very north – northwest of Ukraine and just north of Kiev. Russian border is some distance to the north-east. Adjacent to this area is Belarus to the north. When Chernobyl disaster happened in 1986, the capital of Ukraine Kiev was affected directly, being located only 100 km south. Soviet leadership drew criticism at the time that they didn’t warn the Kiev citizens to stay indoors. As a result, hundreds of thousands in Kiev came out for the traditional May Day demonstration and festivities.
I want to draw everyone’s attention to the fact that this fire happened on the 29th anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe. Coincidence? Some speculate that Kiev junta authorities set the fire deliberately in time for the first EU-Ukraine summit that just took place in Kiev (and to coincide with the anniversary of the original event) in order to compel the EU to give them more money for the construction of the new sarcophagus. But in the end, say proponents of this theory, Kiev could not control the fire they had started.
The original sarcophagus built by the USSR in 1986 has been slowly weakening under the constant bombardment of radiation from within. Its term expired 10 years ago. Presently, the new sarcophagus is being built, to be completed in 2017 at the total cost of $2bln, but Kiev claims that they are still short of funds. The new donation from a pool of countries, including Russia, EU and others, is about 180 mln euros. Russia also just announced an additional contribution of 10 mln euros towards the sarcophagus construction: Россия даст Украине денег на новый саркофаг в Чернобыле. However, I would watch very closely where all this money is going.
As I said in OLIGARCH WARS, unfortunately, Ukraine’s elites look at any money coming into the country as an opportunity to enrich themselves. According to the above-referenced Kiev journalist Yury Kot, Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk regularly writes off millions from the country’s budget, which then gets distributed between the top bras in Kiev in predetermined proportions. This is at the same time as millions don’t know what they will eat tomorrow.
So, was the Chernobyl fire a deliberate action by the greedy Kiev elites? Are they crazy enough to play with radioactive fire? Considering Kiev closeness to the danger zone, I don’t think so. They are crazy, but not crazy enough to risk their personal well-being. Still, the 29th anniversary of the catastrophe is too much of a coincidence. It’s tempting to think that karma is starting to catch up to Ukraine and Kiev junta. Perhaps to a degree this is the case.
However, there is another tantalizing theory that makes a lot of sense. Perhaps the Kiev elites aren’t sick and twisted enough to set the fire to the radioactive forest. But there is someone else in Ukraine who is more than capable…

Flashback: 1986 Chernobyl Catastrophe – the WHOLE TRUTH!
In the ’90s I met a couple – engineers from Kiev, who came to the US with their two teenage daughters in tow. They told me that Chernobyl was the last straw, which eventually led them to emigrate. Some people in Ukraine, especially in Kiev, felt betrayed by Soviet authorities for not advising them on time of Chernobyl’s health danger. Once they learned about all the risks of Chernobyl, that couple made a quick decision. He stayed in Kiev and continued working to bring home bacon; she, together with their 2 children, moved to a sea resort in Caucasus. By 1989 they left the country and emigrated to the US.
In defence of the Soviet authorities I must say that it was the first such disaster in history and they didn’t know exactly how to react. The traditional desire to keep everything calm and discreet to avoid panic, also made them delay going public.
But look at how Japanese authorities behaved after Fukushima – not any better, and likely worse. Saving face is a big thing in Asian cultures and Fukushima presented an extremely embarrassing situation for the Japanese government and for the whole country. Trying to avoid panic and keeping tight control of what you say in public isn’t a surprising reaction by any government. Governments after all, consist of mere humans. In such open-ended and confusing situation any move will create a problem, and any action, or lack thereof, will draw criticism. You are damned if you do and you are damned if you don’t.
But beyond that, this desire to keep things calm, discreet and appear in control is something embedded genetically in the Russian cultural code. It has to do with Russia’s role as the Global Balancer. See more about that in PREDICTIONS (I will also expand on that in the future Earth Shift Reports – stay tuned).
However, if we look at the situation fairly, USSR did absolutely everything to localize the catastrophe and cap it quickly. Should they have kept public better appraised of their actions? Absolutely, they should have! In that case, there would have been fewer silly hoaxes and falsifications floating around… and who knows, the future of the entire country may have turned out differently.
But this was a major lesson Russia had to learn – how to communicate with her own citizens and the entire world, not to mention how to promote herself and how to put her best foot forward. This education is far from complete, and Russia still draws lots of criticism in this department, but there is major progress.
The stellar ability to communicate, promote, do PR and manipulate public opinion is the defining characteristic of the Anglo-American culture. In some ways, including this, the Anglo-American culture is a complete antipode to Russia.
To illustrate how alien it was for Russians to promote themselves, or even to put their best foot forward, here is my personal story. When I arrived to the US in the ’90s, I was told I needed a resume. I had a very hard time trying to put all my achievements in the form of a resume, because to me it signified unnatural and embarrassing bragging. My American friends had a hard time explaining to me that it was how things were done in the US. You aren’t the only one, they said, all Russians have trouble promoting themselves. Once I managed to put that resume together, I went to an interview, after which I got a lucrative job offer the very next day. When I moved from CT to New York, I got a job on Wall Street within three days. I do think it was because of me, not because of what my resume said. I knew Russian scientists who were hired by phone, without any resume and with pretty limited English. My point is, there is a big difference between propaganda and the real truth.
And the truth is this. Without any pomp or PR, in Chernobyl the Soviet Union managed to prevent the ground water contamination – a major heroic feat. If they didn’t, radioactive contamination could have spread as far as the Black Sea and Mediterranean. The Chernobyl reactor was capped and isolated in record time. Very few people know that not the entire Chernobyl has been closed down. Some of its reactors are still functioning, supplying part of Ukraine with electric power.
USSR also tried to prevent the loss of life. In the effort to spare lives, one of the things the Soviet government did was purchase from Germany some very expensive robots for work in the reactor vicinity instead of people. The huge expense turned out a waste. Robots’ electronics stopped working from radiation, proving them useless. It became necessary to send people into the worst affected areas.
The hoax I have seen floating around the West for years was that several million people died from Chernobyl.
Let me just dispel this hoax right away. In fact there are so many BS hoaxes floating around, such as: Stalin killed 20 million in gulag (or, according to some ‘sources,’ it was more like 1/4 of all Russians); 20 million killed as a result of golodomor in Ukraine (holodomor, as they transliterate it incorrectly into English, which would mean in Russian ‘dying from cold,’ instead of ‘hunger.’).
I have news for you: IF 20 million here and 20 million there were casually lost every few years in the USSR, there would have been no one left either in Russia, Ukraine, or Belarus. This is a statistical impossibility.
The only true number as far as millions of victims is this: 27 million SOVIET citizens, primarily Russians, but also millions of Ukrainians and Belorussians, plus members of most other 100 nationalities, died as a result of Hitler’s aggression and WWII (aka, Great Patriotic War.) Period. End of story! This is the only number that is a true historic fact. This is why EVERY single citizen of the former USSR was touched by that war. Every single family lost someone and/or experienced extreme hardship. In terms of the USSR population of 250 million people – this is what the loss of 27 million means! Every single family was touched and experienced a loss!!
There is a lot of confusion about all this in the West, but also in the post-Soviet space, particularly Ukraine and Baltics. It is important that those who are after the real truth, and not an expedient lie, understand one simple thing: for the past 24 years Ukraine (in addition to Baltics, Georgia, Poland, Romania) has been built up as anti-Russia on Russia’s borders. There are three forces that have been working hard on that: 1. the unified West, primarily US, Canada, Poland and Baltics, but Germany wasn’t far behind – all for their own ulterior motives; 2. western Ukraine ukro-nazis who want revenge on Russia after WWII defeat; 3. Ukraine oligarchs who control the media and who can only keep all the rich Soviet inheritance they managed to loot in the ’90s, IF Ukraine is separate from Russia.
Ukraine MSM and politicians put out the numbers of 20 million dead from golodomor and several million dead from Chernobyl. Such inflated numbers were necessary in order to justify painting Russia as enemy and aggressor. These numbers were gladly parroted by Western MSM and history books. The story of all these forces meshing together becomes more and more interesting the deeper we dig. It is described in my new EARTH SHIFT REPORT: OLIGARCH WARS. You can read this report on LadaRay.info, where it is available for a donation. Read now!
Here is my story about the ‘victims’ of Chernobyl. I did mention the family from Kiev I met in the US in the ’90s. These people are all alive and in excellent health, no one died from radiation, despite having lived in the nearby Kiev.
But I have a better story. I grew up in Odessa, as many of you know. Being located over 500 km south, Odessa wasn’t affected by Chernobyl. We did have some people relocated from Pripyat’, Chernobyl’s satellite city, population 50,000. Most residents had been employed by the Chernobyl Nuclear Station. These were the people who were affected most directly; they lost everything, but they were evacuated pretty quickly.
Other categories that were affected gravely were the first response policemen, firemen and large numbers of servicemen. Unfortunately, the majority of those who perished were Russian soldiers – it is traditional to send the army to assist with disaster remediation in Russia. However, within days (actually within hours) they started sending specialists. Those were people who knew how to deal with radiation, and my theory is that the nuclear energy specialists are actually less predisposed to radiation-related health damage. Call it natural selection – they go into this field because they are genetically capable of dealing with it. These people tend to incarnate for this purpose.
I grew up two blocks from the famous Odessa Polytechnic Institute. The father of Space Exploration and Cosmonautics Sergey Korolev, who sent the first Sputnik and first man, Yury Gagarin, into space, was Odessa Polytech alumnus. See more about that in Earth Shift Report 2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY.
The Polytechnic Institute was also famous for its Nuclear Energy Department. Some of the best specialists were prepared there. As a matter of fact my older cousin Sasha was an alumnus. Upon graduation, Sasha abandoned the nuclear energy field, making a career in computer science and becoming the director of the Computer Data Division of the Moldavian government in Kishinev. But before that Sasha made ‘headlines’ when he rejected a very flattering offer to join the KGB (he was anti-establisment and anti-KGB at the time – weren’t we all when we were young).
One of our family friends also attended the Nuclear Department of the Polytech. Almost as soon as Chernobyl happened, he enlisted as a volunteer specialist. We all were semi-worried about his safety, but everyone remembered the story how once he got drunk and fell from the third floor balcony. He got up like nothing happened, de-dusted himself and went home. It appeared that man’s guardian angel had to work overtime, but always managed to protect him from harm.
There was a strict rotation schedule at Chernobyl and after a month or two people were sent back home, while the new crew would be brought in. That was done for obvious reasons: limit the cumulative radiation absorbed by one’s body. Our friend, after his term ended, volunteered to stay for another term. They did pay very well, after all. Everyone was yelling at him that he should go home, that he was really risking his hair and not having any progeny. Eventually he came home, got married and had children.
Conclusions: millions dead from exposure to Chernobyl are a hoax. It’s not even hundreds of thousands. It was several thousand, possibly 10-15 thousand, if we take into account the unfortunate citizens of the nearby Belarus. Some people did get sick. They later recovered and went on with their lives. Yury Kot I mentioned above said he got hospitalized with radiation sickness back in 1986. Check out the video link with his interview above: he is still alive and looking good.
In the comment I referenced above, I explained why losing millions again and again in the USSR, Russia or Ukraine would be statistically impossible. Do read that comment to fully understand my reasoning. To put it in perspective: 27 million dead in WWII meant that every single person and every single family in the 250 million people USSR lost someone, including devastating losses in my own family (see: Happy Victory Day, Fr. Merkel! My Open Postcard to the German Chancellor). Several thousand lost would look exactly how I am describing it here: I knew no one who died from exposure to Chernobyl, despite knowing personally several people who were there.
Let’s return back to today. Should this fire not be extinguished soon, who will be affected most?
Russians announced they were boosting radiation monitoring near borders with Ukraine in view of the situation. However, Russia isn’t in big danger.
Besides Kiev, the other closest capital is Minsk, Belarus, which will celebrate both May Day and Victory Day with extensive parades and festivities. Another large city to the east is Kharkov (2 mln people). Warsaw is 650 km, Moscow 800 km, and Berlin 1,200 km away.
The important thing to remember is where the wind blows in those parts.
Presently, they say the wind is blowing south, towards Kiev. But usually, winds tend to blow north-west in that area of the world. This is what happened in 1986. That time, the biggest impact fell on Belarus, and after Belarus, on Poland, Baltics, Scandinavia and little on Germany. The multimillion Kiev and nearby central Ukraine were exposed as well. Of course, the further you were from the source, the less you had to worry.
Will the wind continue blowing south, or will it change direction and begin blowing north-west? If Kiev fails to take care of the fire, Russians, Belorussians and possibly Europeans, may start sending their own helicopters and emergency crews. No one can afford another Chernobyl.
This disaster is another proof of how incredibly incompetent the Kiev authorities are. This event will be another nail in their coffin.
Catastrophes as a sign of things to come
There are various scientific and conspiracy theories about what really happened in Chernobyl in 1986. As mystical futurist, I want to stress Chernobyl’s karmic and global significance. Conspiracy or not, it became the precursor and harbinger to the collapse of the USSR. I was a teen at the time, but I saw that connection from the beginning. The same year three shocking disasters happened that shifted the energy in the country. I remember thinking: poor Gorbachev, he just recently came to power and such events don’t bode well for his term in office. These events were: the Chernobyl disaster; first in many years train collision in which a large number of military personnel had died; the Russian Titanic – the Black Sea cruise ship Admiral Nakhimov drowned after being hit by a large cargo ship near Novorossiysk, leaving over 700 dead and missing (end of August 1986).
Whether such events were human error or sabotage, one thing was certain. As USSR’s central power weakened, being questioned by the increasing number of people, terrible accidents and catastrophes became more common place. The number of catastrophes always increase during the times of sweeping change and tectonic shifts, such as the one we are experiencing today. They also increase when central authority weakens.
What is happening in Ukraine today is characteristic of a massive shift. Ukraine is trying to re-define itself. They tried to live in a lie, but it didn’t work. They are now staring a catastrophe in the eye.
Who started Chernobyl fire?
So, is the fire an act of god and a karmic return, or is it enacted by humans? As I said, I don’t believe even idiots from the Kiev government are crazy enough to start such fire. But there is someone else in Ukraine who is. For the past several days I have been hearing an interesting story. When I put the two and two together, here is the picture that emerged. The infamous ‘right sector’ headed by western Ukraine Bandera follower, ukro-nazi Yarosh was financed by oligarch Kolomoysky. At one point in 2014 Yarosh, Kolomoysky and his right hand Korban became such buddies that the right sector’s headquarters even moved to Dnepropetrovsk, where Kolomoysky was governor. After Kolomoysky recently resigned, urgently flying first to Israel and then to the US, the right sector was left without financing. I describe this entire thriller-like story in detail in the OLIGARCH WARS. It is known that Kolomoysky left the country after having a heart-to-heart with US ambassador Pyatt.
Since then, there have been persistent rumors that the right sector militants are being hunted down all over the country.
Poroshenko is behind on executing the Minsk 2 agreements. Kiev is now being pressured by the EU to fulfil its obligations. At the EU-Ukraine summit in Kiev, Brussels reps told Poroshenko that Kiev has no chance of being considered for EU membership until they complete a list of EU demands.
Poroshenko, unhappy with EU’s position, urged the EU to cancel visa regime for Ukrainians. The EU response: we can’t do that because Ukraine’s eastern border (where DNR and LNR are located) is controlled by Russia. If we open our borders to Ukraine, we are afraid that there will be uncontrollable inflow of Russians into the EU. Of course in reality EU is afraid of the uncontrollable inflow of Ukrainians, including armed nazi crazies – but blame Russia for everything when in doubt.
EU also told Poroshenko that he really has to get a move on disarming any illegal armed units, per Minsk 2. This means the right sector militants have to either join the regular army or national guard, or disarm. DNR and LNR have been reporting that those ‘volunteer’ ukro-nazi battalions that are in Donbass tend to break the truce more often. They still shell peaceful citizens daily, despite cease-fire. DNR reports getting calls from Ukraine military asking them to join in the shelling of the positions of their own ukro-nazi volunteer battalions. So far DNR isn’t reacting to these pleas, being faithful to the Minsk agreements.
Today, DNR reported that an unusually well-equipped group of what looked like Western special forces armed with non-Kalashnikov, Western made rifles, began an armed shootout with a group of ukro-nazis They killed 4 and loaded the remaining 7 into a Volkswagen van. After that, they left the area and the shelling of Donetsk had stopped. DNR intelligence reports that the intervention was executed by non-Ukrainians, possibly NATO or private contractor from the EU. These people were equipped with GPS-powered radios and other Western equipment. There are reports of the right sector and nazi battalion members being disarmed and hunted down in Dnepropetrovsk after Kolomoysky’s demise.
What does all this mean? This means that the EU is serious about enforcing Minsk 2 agreements. It is interesting that the US, at least Obama personally, is on the same page. The scenario is playing out exactly as I predicted in my early article about striking parallels between the Georgia 2008 war and Ukraine 2014-15. Just like in the case of Georgia, US and EU first yell a lot and threaten to punish Russia. After a while though they realize that certain deals in world affairs are impossible without Russia. This concerns, among other things, Iran negotiations and the Yemen conflict. It also turns out they can’t deal with Ukraine without Russia either, as hinted by various EU and German officials.
Another thing that scares EU are the unruly nazis running around with guns. This is a danger not only for Ukraine itself, but for Europe as well. And they are right.
The EU reps told the following to Poroshenko in Kiev: ‘make sure Minsk cease-fire is observed. Don’t break the peace so not to give the chance to the Russian propaganda to malign us (with truth, apparently -LR). Also don’t you dare attack Donbass so not to give the opportunity for the Russian separatists to counter-attack.
They are right to warn Poroshenko to behave. Head of DNR Zakharchenko warned that if Kiev breaks the truce and attacks again, there will be no Minsk 3. “This time, we won’t stop in Kiev; we’ll keep going,” said Zakharchenko.
There is a real deal hunt for ukro-nazi militants all over Ukraine. This is undoubtedly sanctioned by the US and EU. In fact, in the Kiev euro-maidan coup both the peaceful protesters and vicious ukro-nazis were simply convenient patsies. They were needed to overturn Yanukovich and establish the dictate of the West in Kiev. Now they outlived their usefulness. They either have to fall in line or disappear.
This repeats exactly the events of the 1930s in Germany. After coming to power, Hitler organized the ‘night of the long knives,’ eliminating his buddy Rem and his well-trained militants, first having used them for his purposes. If course Rem was getting out of hand threatening Hitler with his militants. Today, ukro-nazis also dare to threaten Kiev with turning their weapons on them, attempting at one point to storm president’s administration. Really, they never learn!
The power in Kiev doesn’t belong to Poroshenko or Central Rada. The power in Kiev is concentrated in a different set of hands and in a different building. That’s why they can never succeed – the new maidan won’t be allowed by the puppet masters. And if they refuse to fall in line, they’ll never survive. As mentioned above, the entire spread is revealed in EARTH SHIFT REPORT: OLIGARCH WARS.
Here is my scenario of the Chernobyl fire: having realised that they had been betrayed by the regime they brought to power, the right sector militants took revenge by setting fire to the radioactive Chernobyl forest. As mentioned previously, the fire started in one of the nuclear waste burial sites. This in itself is suspicious. The anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy sends an additional message. Only ukro-nazis are crazy enough to risk contaminating Kiev and a big part of their country, with potential contamination of parts of Europe. They are not from Kiev – most of them are from western Ukraine, which is further to the west/south-west. If they killed peaceful citizens in Donbass, burned people in Odessa and tortured those who disagreed with them, why would they have any qualms starting Chernobyl 2?
Is another nuclear event possible in Ukraine?
There is persistent talk of a potential catastrophe on one of Ukraine’s functioning nuclear stations. Rumors of that are ongoing since last year. The good news is: the fact that so many people talk about it may have prevented such false flag.
Another thing actively circulated is that the Kiev army is amassing forces to attack Donbass. The only question is when. DNR army spokesperson Eduard Basurin reported that DNR intelligence expects provocations involving heavy shelling on May 8th and 9th, to be blamed by Ukraine on DNR and LNR.
What I want to stress is: people talking and yelling about it does help prevent provocations and false flags. There is ‘operation Glasnost’ underway. The goal is to make public and distribute in social media all the information that becomes available, thus taking away the real weapon of those who lie and manipulate. They can only succeed if the other side is silent. The more truth and warnings are pre-emptively released, the harder it is to execute false flags and perpetuate lies and hoaxes.
There is also the factor of the quiet, behind the scenes Russian diplomacy. Russia can help geopolitically through a series of international levers available to her.
Will Kiev make another attempt to attack Donbass? They may try, but they will not succeed. Moreover, every time they try, DNR and LNR will advance further, expanding their republics. DNR leader Zakharchenko announced that if any other oblasts of Ukraine want to join Novorossia, they are all welcome.
At present, most military experts anticipate Kiev attack around June, but no later than mid-summer. I have not formed my opinion yet as the information coming in is very conflicting. There is a factor many of these experts don’t take into account. It is the EU, first of all, Germany and France. They continue putting pressure on Ukraine to fulfil Minsk 2 agreements. I anticipate that EU will have no choice but to continue increasing pressure on Ukraine to behave. Having done terribly throughout 2014, EU will have no choice but to try mending relations with Russia and to continue restraining Ukraine. EU, primarily Germany, will also continue putting pressure on the US. I know it sounds almost comical, but Germany does have some leverage. It is mainly moral, such as shaming US into observing certain rules agreed upon in the Western world.
It goes like this: Merkel to Obama: if we do not stop Ukraine war, all these armed thugs will eventually cross our borders and destabilize our countries. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you? Those sophisticated weapons you are sending them will eventually end up sold to ISIS or Assad, or a rogue arms dealer. These weapons may eventually be turned against US, NATO or EU. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?
My prediction is that Merkel’s reasoning will work, actually. Basically, EU will now act as a restraining factor in relation to the US. This was the role EU should have played from the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. Instead they were one of the main instigators. Merkel is getting a lot of pressure from her own population, certain politicians, business, and increasingly, from some of the EU countries.
We would usually mention Greece, Hungary, possibly Czechia and Slovakia here.
I want to mention Bulgaria. I wrote about it previously. Bulgaria, being traditionally a close ally of Russia, to the degree that it was once called USSR’s 16th republic, has one of the most anti-Russian governments. Recall my story how McCain visited Bulgaria and the next day Sofia revoked its lucrative participation in South Stream. A Donbass journalist I know has visited Bulgaria recently for a conference. Many Bulgarians were apologizing profusely for the actions of their government, saying they feel like one people with Russians but that their government is completely under the US thumb and they can’t do anything about it.
Obama is listening to Merkel, to the extent he is capable. In fairness to Obama, I have to say he is caught between crazies such as McCain who find war to be the best solution for any situation – and there is a majority of those in the US congress – and reality.
Incidentally, behind the scenes Russian diplomatic efforts are proving very effective as well. They are delicately influencing and directing the situation.
Has the awakening begun?
I can tell you one thing for sure. Ukraine is awakening and the energy is slowly changing, as predicted. I monitor people’s opinions throughout Ukraine. Here are a couple of eye-witness accounts from Dnepropetrovsk. One man says that in his circles people would hide rather than join the ATO. When the army of Novorossia arrives to Dnepropetrovsk, he says, 70% of men would join it to liberate the rest of the country. There is only one disagreement among his friends, he says: some believe we should separate from Kiev and western Ukraine and build our own Novorossia. Others say, why should we cede them the rest of Ukraine – we need to liberate it all, pushing them (meaning ukro-nazis and Kiev junta) out. It’s our country after all.
Another man is the leader of the Ukraine Union of Soviet Officers. He says that they are all coming out for May 1 and May 9th, with their medals and uniforms, despite threats. But he also says that after Kolomoysky was removed as governor, Dnepropetrovsk started breathing easier, the right sector nazis disappeared from streets and people felt less threatened. Kolomoysky and Korban always portrayed themselves as saviors of Dnepropetrovsk, telling us it was quiet and orderly because of them. But they lied – after they left it got better. People are starting to awaken and question their reality, he says.
Харьковчане, вывозите свои семьи! Филипп Экозьянц The Kharkov Partisans’ spokesman Philip Ekozyants warns Kharkov residents that they should move their families out of the city. When Kiev army starts retreating from Donbass, they will go through our city and we expect they will bomb the city. Men, move your families, but stay to help us fight to liberate our land.
В ЛНР пойман агент СБУ, раскрыта схема работы наводчиц. Interview with Kiev SBU spy caught in Lugansk. He says his looks are very uncharacteristic of a spy and he can blend in. This is why he was sent to prepare for the arrival to Lugansk of 40 young women who would be Kiev junta spies. Among other things, the role of these female spies would have been to seduce Novorossia army soldiers, have them take these girls to frontlines and report their position so they could be shelled more accurately.
Одесса: 2 – мая день гнева, Порошенко убийца. On May 2 Odessa is commemorating first anniversary of the Kulikovo Polie tragedy, when 40+ peaceful protesters were burned alive. Yesterday night, the unknown persons shone a laser onto the building of the Odessa Oblast Administration with giant words: “Poroshenko – murderer. Fascism won’t pass.”
Many points I have mentioned above are discussed in-depth in my new EARTH SHIFT REPORT: OLIGARCH WARS. It is a treasure trove of intel, history, revelations and new predictions about oligarchs, Ukraine, Russia and US (those who asked me for predictions about the US would find them in the report).

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

Ukraine is very actively and aggressively re-writing history!
On April 9 the Kiev Rada equated communism with fascism. Ukraine president Poroshenko announced that Stalin started WWII together with Hitler. All communist and Soviet symbolism was banned. The leader of the practically illegal communist party of Ukraine, elderly, white-haired Petr Simonenko was arrested and had to endure an 11-hour interrogation at the SBU. Last year, communist faction (present Rada’s only legally elected) was banned and rudely thrown out of Rada. Simonenko and other communists’ homes were burned down.
Let me remind everyone that the very first thing Hitler did after coming to power was to boot out of Reichstag the very popular communists. Subsequently, German communists were killed or sent to concentration camps. Next, Hitler invaded the rest of Europe.
So, everything communist is bad, right?
Great! Then how about Ukraine also demolishes MOST apartment buildings on its territory, since they were built during Soviet times. Wouldn’t Ukrainians rather live in the street than in communist-built apartments?
Ukraine should also return DneproGes to Russia. DneproGes is Ukraine’s largest hydroelectric station build by those damn Russians and bad communists in the 1930s, which still provides 1/3 of Ukraine with unnecessary electricity. DneproGes was the first massive Soviet industrialization project, and it is widely considered the SYMBOL of the Soviet industrialization. I seriously think Ukraine should give it back, since they have no use for such communist symbol!
Also demolish all of your steel factories, tractor factories and defence factories, even the candy and cake-making factories, built by those damn communists.
Please go ahead and give back to Russia, who’s the legal heir of the USSR you hate so much, the Odessa ports, including Yuzhny and Ilyichevsk (named after Lenin, since Lenin’s patronymic was Ilyich). How ironic – the Ilyichevsk port has just been sold to AMERICANS by the cash-strapped Ukraine! Tush, tush, dear Americans. How could you buy such a testament and monument to Lenin? Not good, not good… It’s a communist symbol, after all!
And don’t forget to blow up all of Ukraine’s nuclear power stations providing the rest of Ukraine’s unnecessary electric power… Sorry, but they all were built by your worst enemies, Russians, during Soviet communist days!
You should also destroy the buildings presently occupied by your Central Rada and Ukraine government in Kiev. And the building of SBU, the secret services of Ukraine, where the upper floor has been occupied by Americans and NATO reps, on top of which American flag is placed next to the Ukrainian one. These are all Soviet-built structures, where the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and the Communist Party of Ukraine held meetings during Soviet times. How come you are still using those?
Please also don’t forget to give back to Russia all the gas and oil pipelines running through Ukraine’s territory, as well as all railroads, together with all the trains, locomotives, power lines and other infrastructure, built by those damn Soviet communists.
Actually, while we are at it, please remember to hand back to Russia the entire industrialized, export producing, developed and educated South and East of Ukraine, including: Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Zaporozhie, Krivoi Rog, Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts. All these oblasts were attached to then small Ukraine, usually called Malorossia, by communist Lenin. Please give Transcarpathia back to Hungary and Czechia, attached to Ukraine by communist Stalin. Please return to Poland Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk and a couple of other oblasts, attached to Ukraine by the same communist Stalin.
As to the Crimea once attached to Ukraine by communist Khrushchev, it has already returned itself to its rightful home.
And of course – my sincere congratulations – the cash-strapped Ukraine, with its dying economy, can forget about any investments or cash infusions from the richest creditor nation in the world, China, because a ban on communist ideology obviously includes China’s ruling communist party.
Tragedy in Konstantinovka: Today the city of Konstantinovka in Donetsk region, which is presently under the Kiev junta occupation, buried the 8-year-old girl killed three days ago by the Kiev soldiers.
Two drunk Ukraine soldiers driving a heavy armored vehicle “Ural” ran over three people on city sidewalk. A young mother was walking with her two children: 5-month-old baby in a stroller and 8-year-old girl Polina. Polina died on the spot; the mother and the baby were taken to the hospital. Information about their condition is being blocked by Kiev.
On the footage below it is clearly visible that armored vehicle “Ural” ran over two tall posts located on the curb of the road and continued moving through the dirt separator, at least 3-4 meters in width, between the road and sidewalk, slamming into the unsuspecting people who had the misfortune to walk past. Both soldiers were so drunk, they could hardly stand on their feet. The driver, 23 (born 1991), is from Lvov – the city in western Ukraine, which is a hotbed of ukro-nazism. It has been reported that in their drunken stupor they decided to drag race on the busy road full of civilians and located in the city center. As angry crowd started gathering at the scene, the commander arrived almost immediately and whisked the two drunk soldiers away. The crowd started throwing rocks at the car as it sped away.
Later at night, angry citizens, who were demanding justice, burned tires and set on fire the army barracks, demanding Kiev troops leave the city and calling them occupiers. In response, Kiev gave order to shoot at the crowd and sent 300 ukro-nazis from the ‘right sector,’ who would have no qualms following this order.
This is the interview with a local Konstantinovka woman Olga, who knew the family of the killed girl Polina: Link.
Locals are saying that Kiev troops are always drunk and behave like German Nazis during WWII. They frequently run over old people, cars and plow into private houses on their armored vehicles. They also frequently shoot in the air at night when they are drunk or on drugs. Locals think of them as aggressors and can’t wait to be liberated by DNR. There is no way, says the woman, they could live in the same country with Ukrainians. It was possible last year, when Donbass was asking for autonomy, but not any more.
Olga said that in May 2014, during the Donbass independence referendum, she voted for DNR and against Kiev, and so did most of her compatriots. People of Donbass felt very hopeful at that time. They all hope to be back with Donetsk and DNR one day. Olga also said that everyone in Konstantinovka was angry at the killing of the little girl, but when people heard that Kiev gave order to shoot at the crowd, many were afraid to come out to protest and stayed home.
Still, as we’ll see from videos below, quite a few people did come out. Unfortunately, the next day arrests started. SBU and ukro-nazis dragged a large number of people off in the unknown direction. Arrests and intimidation continue. Video footage of the tragedy aftermath and riots:
On a different note – Ukraine is disaster for retirees and young people alike. Economic collapse is visible: From the same interview with Olga from Konstantinovka near Donetsk, presently occupied by Kiev junta: retiree receives a monthly pension of 1200 grivnas and at the same time gets a monthly bill for communal charges (apartment building maintenance and utilities) for 2100 grivnas. People can’t wait to be liberated by DNR. Interview link.
The industrial city of Krivoy Rog, Dnepropetrovsk region – same kind of news: retiree receives a monthly pension of 1400 grivnas, while communal charges for the same period are 1500 grivnas. (Obviously food, medicine, transport and entertainment are superfluously extravagant luxuries – LR). People in Krivoy Rog are pro-Putin and anti-Poroshenko: interview link. The interviewed from Krivoi Rog adds that he has nothing to thank Ukraine for; it has done nothing for him. He says he attends correspondence college in the Russian city of Rostov, across the border. The Russian college he goes to guarantees employment and he is looking forward to moving for work to the Russian Federation as soon as he graduates. But Ukraine government has been blocking people from crossing the border with Russia. As a result, he’s been unable to get to his college for a year now and is on the verge of being kicked out.
Depending on the area in today’s Ukraine, prices, communal charges and cost of living rise by 20-50%+ every month, while salaries and pensions stay the same.
Intel: in two or three weeks Kiev is expected to start a massive new offensive on Donbass. False flags, provocations and terrorist acts to sabotage, or make more difficult, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory (WWII Victory Day) celebration in Russia on May 9th are also possible. Since Nemtsov murder near Kremlin, Russians are on full alert; therefore, I expect it won’t be possible in Moscow and/or the main Russian cities. But Ukraine and Donbass are a different story.
According to the expert of the Russian Military Sciences Academy Vladimir Prokhvatilov (interview link), confirmed by multiple intelligence sources in Donbass and Ukraine, Kiev is expected to start a new massive offensive on Donbass in order to surround and cut Donetsk off Lugansk, with simultaneous attack on Lugansk. We will recall that a similar recent attempt resulted in the Debaltsevo cauldron, where thousands of Ukrainian troops perished. This time, the result will be the same, but it appears Kiev doesn’t care about the result, it only cares about making the life of the Donbass people as difficult as possible, and about sabotaging Russian holidays.
Kiev has officially broken the Minsk agreements. Instead of pulling its heavy artillery away from the front lines in oder to create a demilitarized zone, Kiev is amassing heavy artillery, tanks and troops.
It is believed that they will attack during the sacred Orthodox Holiday – Pascha (Easter). Previous mass bombings of DNR and LNR, as well as mass attacks by Kiev on both republics, were all scheduled during an important holiday, in order to spoil people’s celebration. This year, Pascha is celebrated on April 12.
It is further believed that Kiev and their handlers will attempt to create as many problems as possible for both Donbass and Russia during the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory. Victor Day is traditionally celebrated in Russia on May 9th, with a parade and show on Red Square. Similar events will take place in many other cities and towns.
Kiev attacks, false flags and provocations are expected between April 12 and May 9.
In January, I wrote about the observers’ warning of a massive false flag in Ukraine, to dwarf MH17 downing.
Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller has warned 2 days ago that Kiev failed to pre-pay for Russian gas. He has said that Gazprom will have no choice but to cut off gas to Ukraine, since pre-payment has failed to be delivered on time. According to the agreement reached in the fall 2014 between Ukraine, Russia and EU, where EU acted as intermediary and guarantor for Ukraine, Kiev must pre-pay for any gas deliveries. The discount gas price was also negotiated. Previously, Kiev regularly failed to pay for gas delivered in advance.
Miller also warned that Russian gas shut-off for Ukraine would mean the danger of gas supply disruptions for the EU – video report in Russian. The reason for that is Ukraine’s siphoning of gas designated for EU that goes through the Gazprom pipeline located on their territory. The tactic of stealing EU’s gas has been implemented by Kiev for years.
In the video below, Vladimir Putin confirms the above, saying that “Gazprom has been fully committed and continues being committed to fulfilling all of its contractual obligations. Ukraine’s pre-payment is only enough for no more than 3-4 days. After that, Gazprom will cease gas deliveries to Ukraine.”
As of 2014, Ukraine owed Russia $5.5bln in unpaid gas debt. Overall, Ukraine owes Russia over $33-36 bln, considering both corporate and state debt. Incidentally, Gazprom was the very last creditor able to collect $3bln (out of $5.5bln) from Ukraine.
The country is bankrupt. Any money that is still there, gets stolen by oligarchs, corrupt politicians and military. Ukraine economy has been destroyed as a result of the February, 2014 coup; as a consequence of severing all ties with Russia – until recently, the largest buyer of Ukraine goods; and due to the devastating civil war with Donbass.
The true state of the Ukraine economy has been concealed through Western loans to keep the coma patient just barely alive. Another way to keep delaying the admission of insolvency is to conduct a war. This is why the war with Donbass is necessary for Kiev.
Several EU countries have been doing the illegal ‘reverse supply’ of the Russian gas to Ukraine, also to keep the patient just barely breathing. In reality, it’s not a reverse supply at all: part of EU gas simply stays in Ukraine, being siphoned off, while Ukraine still illegally collects Gazprom transit fees for this volume.
IMF, US and EU won’t keep supporting Ukraine forever. It’s too big, too corrupt and too broke. Ukraine is needed for the West, and especially for the US, as a convenient tool in order to weaken Russia by maintaining an area of permanent instability on Russia’s borders, and if they are lucky, by dragging Russia into the direct confrontation with Ukraine. There are economic and propaganda reasons as well, such as sabotaging Russian economy, painting Russia as a villain and aggressor, as well as making Russia strain her resources trying to help Donbass, and later Ukraine.
Certainly, US would love to see EU weaken as a result of Ukraine conflict as well. Putting a wedge between Russia and EU (it especially concerns Western Europe/Germany/France), and Russia and Ukraine, is also high on the US list.
The territory known today as Ukraine will be abandoned and thrown out as a used-up lemon as soon as US/West see that it’s too expensive and too unproductive to keep afloat this Titanic. This will happen as soon as they decide that their plans in regards to Russia have failed. Until this realization settles in, unfortunately, they will keep tormenting the poor Ukraine.
The ukro-nazi Kiev regime is both inept and extremely corrupt. The population of Ukraine has been duped by Western/Polish/Soros sponsored and trained MSM. But no one can be duped unwillingly. Part of Ukraine populace wanted to be duped into believing the fairytale that once they sign an association agreement with EU they would start making salaries and pensions on par with European and that everything somehow would become champagne and roses in their corrupt country. In reality, Europeans themselves would have told these naive and lazy Ukrainians that only hard work and taking responsibility for their future could turn things around for them. Doing nothing and hoping for a rich uncle to come and save them would hardly help.
These ukro-sheeple allowed the nazi regime to take over the country, and they allowed the destruction of the economic link with their biggest trade partner and closest neighbor, Russia.
But the most important thing to understand about contemporary Ukraine is this: while the minority was rabidly anti-Russian, and while some believed the Western fairytale, the majority was simply apathetic and indifferent. The reason for this is that many of those who in the West are customarily called ‘Ukrainians,’ in fact do not consider themselves as such, and do not believe in their country. The majority of Ukraine citizens never asked to be separate from Russia and didn’t want the 1991 divorce. They awoke one day to find out in surprise they were foreigners in Russia, the country they considered their motherland. For 23+ years, they lived in the country they didn’t believe in.
According to the official data, 7-8 million Ukrainians choose to live and work in Russia. Out of these, at least 5-6 have been employed in Russia for a long time, the rest are refugees from the present Ukraine crisis and draft dodgers. There are 1.1 million of Ukrainian draft dodgers presently in Russia.
The above doesn’t take into account those former Ukrainians who managed to become Russian citizens. There are lots of these too. This also doesn’t take into account the 2.5 million Crimeans. Crimean population increased from 2.2 million to 2.5 million during the past 8-10 months, as Ukrainians run to Crimea in order to become Russian citizens.
More about apathy. When people in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa, and even in Kiev, saw ukro-nazis parading in Western Ukraine, they thought, “Let them, as long as they stay in Western Ukraine and don’t bother us.” But ukro-nazis didn’t stop at Western Ukraine.
When they saw ukro-nazis burning tires and throwing Molotov cocktails during 2014 Kiev maidan, they thought, “So what; as long as they stay away from our towns.” Then ukro-nazis came to their towns and villages and started shelling them and burning people alive.
The people of Donbass and Ukraine now have no choice but to notice what they tried hard to ignore: for 23 years they had lived in the artificial conglomerate of oblasts with varying interests and allegiances, loosely and reluctantly tied together by economic infrastructure, and forced to live within one state they never wanted. The long-festering infestation has been finally brought to the surface and exposed to all. It has become impossible to ignore; the situation has gone too far and it has to be dealt with. Where the artificial state called Ukraine used to be, eventually, the new country (or most likely, 2-3 new countries) will have to be rebuilt from ruins.
Ukraine’s future now depends on the inner life force of its people. The higher the life force, the better the prospects for the people’s future and the sooner any country is able to get out of a crisis. Russia’s life force is so strong that, despite all the problems, it has taken Russia less than one decade (1992-2000) to get out of one of the most devastating crises in her long and turbulent history. Ukraine isn’t Russia, as we can clearly see. Read more in-depth analysis in: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.
However sad and cruel it may sound, Ukraine needs this cleansing through fire and ice, through war and devastation. If all this doesn’t awaken the people of Ukraine, nothing will. As a necessary side effect, the Ukraine crisis already woke up Russian people, as well as the people in Asia and Latin America; it’s even starting to wake up Europeans.
This Kiev government is in fact a demolition crew, there to complete the destruction of Ukraine’s economy.
If US/West can’t have Ukraine, they will make sure the future generations get a wreck of a country, and that Russia has to spend as many resources as possible to resurrect Ukraine economy later. The problem with this way of thinking and operating is that karma is a bitch. As the Russian saying I mentioned previously goes (it’s worth repeating), “don’t dig a grave for someone else – you’ll fall in it yourself.” It may not happen right away, but it will happen.
22nd February 2015, city of Kharkov (North-East Ukraine), the Kiev regime occupied Kharkov Republic
URGENT STATEMENT OF THE KHARKOV PARTISANS re. the false flag terrorist act that claimed 2 lives, with 16 wounded, at the pro-ATO/ pro-junta rally.
Phillip Ekoz’yants, representative of the Kharkov partisans:
“This is an urgent statement of the Kharkov partisans. We, Kharkov partisans, leading a guerrilla war against the Kiev junta on the territory of Kharkov and Kharkov region, haven’t had hand in an explosion during a march of the ATO supporters on the 22nd of February, 2015. We, Kharkov partisans, didn’t plan and don’t plan to arrange our actions in places crowded with peaceful civilians regardless of their political views. We think that many ordinary Ukrainians are fooled by the mass media of the Kiev junta. And as we’ve stated many times, we will not put their lives at risk. Moreover, we have reliable information that the column of peaceful participants was blown up by order of Avakov [present minister of internal affairs of Kiev junta] in order to launch an anti-terrorist operation in the Kharkov region. Residents of Kharkov! One year ago, monsters, sadists and murderers came to power in Ukraine, which offer ordinary Ukrainian people in sacrifice in order to achieve their aims. And we all are simply like coins to exchange in their dreadful game. We will win. This was the urgent statement of the Kharkov partisans.”
I have seen this video statement in Russian on News-Front. Since most of my readers are English-speakers, I didn’t post it previously, being unable to translate for the lack of time. Many thanks to Satya for emailing me the translation – it’s very helpful. The translation is pretty accurate.
Philip Ekozy’ants is a singer/artist from Kharkov, who has been speaking up against Kiev junta since the beginning. Presently, he is in hiding as a warrant for his arrest has been issued by Kiev. Previously on FT we had a couple of posts from Philip, including his viral Appeal to the American People from a Ukrainian. You can find both posts here.
Reader comments such as Satya’s, containing decent English translations of any important Russian, German, or other materials on topic are welcome. They can be placed in the comment section, or you can provide a link in your comment (note: always explain what is in your link, bare links are not permitted on FT per BLOG RULES).
Note: I won’t be able to post everything – only those materials that in my view are important, good and true. This would really help me out as I’m only able to translate the most important pieces crossing my desk; yet, there is so much more I want to share with my readers.
Episode description: Results and underlying motivations of Minsk2 Ukraine peace negotiations. What do Putin, Merkel, Hollande and Poroshenko want? Is peace in Ukraine possible? What is happening to Ukraine economy? What is the roadmap for Donbass/Novorossia (DNR and LNR). Lada Ray explains and predicts.

Some very good thoughts from Paul Plane, the host of The Plane Truth show on the Time Monk Radio, followed by my thoughts and predictions. I will be happy to expand on these brief predictions in the future Earth Shift Reports, should my readers be interested.
We all have our own perspective. Paul’s is different from mine, but it’s well-thought-out. Paul is generally very knowledgeable and he poses interesting questions.
Incidentally, next week Paul, his team, and I will have a very interesting new interview on The Plane Truth Radio. The topic we are planning is the BRICS, and any other topics that may come up – wherever our spontaneous discussion takes us. Please stay tuned!
I can see what Paul means by negative Ukrainians. Many had been brainwashed very thoroughly. But the majority is simply scared to speak up because of severe oppression and intimidation.
Here are two videos, first one from Kharkov. It’s the trial of the Kharkov activist Oleg Novikov: link. People gather in the court room when the judge announces that it will be a closed trial and no press or spectators are allowed. People start quietly leaving – no objections, no protests. The clincher is that Novikov, the leader of the civil organization ‘Ishod’ – ‘Exit,’ is a one-legged cripple, and father of two small children. They are afraid of a cripple, because he speaks up against junta. How weak and rotten can such regime be?
Second video is the interview with a woman who describes how a deputy of the Nikolaev regional council was arrested because he said that those who are now waving Bandera nazi flags will start waving Russian flags the moment the power changes. For that he was arrested by SBU (CIA/FBI equivalent) and thrown into jail: link.
Predictions and how they will play out
My view has not changed since the beginning of 2014. Remember what I said: ‘Russia will gradually and slowly change the status quo in her favor using all quiet and peaceful means.’ No military interventions or jerky reaction; only the well-thought-out chess moves. I also said it would take till 2016-18 to accomplish the real turnaround. (See PREDICTIONS, early articles on Ukraine, and our first interview with The Plane Truth.)
This is exactly how it is playing out, as you can see. The key words are: slow and tedious change. Ukraine people are slowly changing their minds (it’s not my fault people are so slow, but as one Russian statesman said, ‘sorry, I don’t have any other people for you.’)
The every-day details of how the change could materialize tend to fluctuate as humans try to influence events, thus tipping the balance temporarily this way or that. But in the grand scheme of things these ‘minor’ fluctuations will not influence the end result.
My predictions are based not on the superficial events, but on the prevailing energy I see manifest in the future, and here the energy is quite clear. There are instances when the future energy isn’t as clear, but it is very clear in this case. Therefore, the end result is just a matter of physical manifestation, which is always slow and delayed in 3D compared to the fast energy of thought, especially clairvoyant thought (something I usually call ‘prediction’).
Additionally, it’s worth keeping in mind that the 3D manifestation is also not as clear-cut as thought, often very confusing for the immediate witnesses because of many distracting events. Therefore, to most humans, what had happened often only becomes evident years later. For anyone who wants to be an intelligent witness and observer of the Earth Shift, it is important to learn to discern between mere distractions and truly important events.
As to how it will happen – it’ll be very hard and tedious (hence confusing and distracting events), as I also had said. That is because the cancer has been allowed to spread too far. There is no way of removing it painlessly, but pain is what will make many people in Ukraine wake up. But it doesn’t mean that they should shrivel up and wait to be freed by the third party, as many of them hope. They will need to fight in order to achieve a turnaround.
The resistance from Kiev/US is and will continue to be brutal of course. This has to be expected.
Ukraine economy will be completely destroyed. It actually is already destroyed (this I also predicted), but they so far manage to cover it up with the help of the US and EU. It’s interesting that Russia has managed to temporarily shift the burden of propping up the dead weight called Ukraine onto the EU. This was one of those subtle, yet brilliant Russian moves I talked about.
EU will never admit to it, but Russia is educating the EU about Ukraine. The fact that EU has to pay for Ukraine’s gas and other expenses will cause the EU to tire of Ukraine very soon (this is already happening). Eventually, US/EU will stop supporting Ukraine as it’s too cumbersome. At that point Ukraine will stop being interesting to the West. Rather, it will always be interesting, but it will be completely impossible for them to support it. Then, the Russian lesson for the EU will be complete. Basically, it sounds like this: ‘You have no idea what you are getting into with Ukraine. Why don’t you try it… Got it now?’ These things I also said early on in 2014.
The reason the West won’t be able to restructure the Ukraine economy, while Russia can, is because of the cultural, psychological, and profound metaphysical differences. West has completely miscalculated Ukraine on all levels, just like it always miscalculates Russia.
What do I mean? This is an involved conversation – perhaps I’ll cover that in one of the Earth Shift Reports. Paul is correct in thinking that much thought is being given by the Russian thinkers and decision-makers on how to rebuild Ukraine when the time comes.
These are the most important points to understand:
1. Ukraine will never be treated like Chechnya. The situations are very different. Massive investments have been infused into rebuilding Chechnya and it now looks pretty darn good.
However, Russia will NOT pay for Ukraine as dead weight. Ukraine will be helped, supported, directed to a better path. But Russia will not lavish Ukraine with investments and money infusions until Ukrainians show they care about their country and are ready to work properly. Till then, Russia will be very slow with investment.
2. Russia will be ready to share investments into the NEW Ukraine with China and Europe, as long as Europe acts with sovereignty and sense.
3. Russia will not rush with ultimate Ukraine conflict resolution until Russia is absolutely sure that Ukrainians and Europeans have learned their lessons I spoke about earlier. This has to sink in. This is one of the main reasons for slow changes.
4. Ukraine economy is destroyed. Practically new economy may have to be built from scratch. More about it in future ES Reports.
5. Finally, Russia doesn’t want to ‘annex’ Ukraine as part of RF. Russia wants a good, friendly, solvent neighbor and partner in Eurasian Union, who has solid economy and can feed itself.
6. That said, more Russians than anyone in the West can imagine have roots in Ukraine, yours truly included. Therefore, millions of Russians care deeply what is happening in Ukraine and they will work tirelessly to make it right, whether the Russian government will do anything or not. This is one of the main things the US has miscalculated. The same thing happened with Napoleon and Hitler. And aggressor will always miscalculate, because they will never understand that people can be completely selfless; that incredibly busy and very accomplished people may drop everything and do massive amounts of pro-bono work in order to see justice and balance restored in what the US believes is some godforsaken Ukraine. Some speak the truth, others shoot documentaries exposing the truth, yet others volunteer, send humanitarian aid, or engage their high-profile political contacts all over the world. These people will never rest until Ukraine if free from ukro-nazis. And this is why, my friends, US and West will NEVER be able to subdue Russians. They have no idea what kind of spirit the usually peaceful, non-confrontational people can possess.
Borders of Ukraine, Zakarpatie and Galichina issues
Remember what I said a year ago? Russia would prefer to keep Ukraine intact, and of course, peaceful – for both geopolitical and economic reasons. It is the West’s preference to break it up and create chaos, not Russia’s.
I agree about Galichina, which is a part of western Ukraine. My personal view is that the border of new Ukraine, or possibly Novorossia (as the name may be changed after all), should be redrawn to exclude Galichina. One problem is that a part of western Ukraine, called Zakarpatie (Transcarpathia) is actually populated with Russins, in other words, Russians who preserved Orthodox religion despite terrible 18th – beginning of 20th century genocide by Austria-Hungary, and who want to be with Russia. If the border is redrawn, they will be cut off. There is another area, called Chernovtsi, which may have a similar problem in regards to Romania. Even the Galichina proper isn’t all anti-Russian. All this can be resolved when the time comes. A lot has to be weighed.
How brainwashed is Ukraine?
That said, my highly connected sources in Ukraine report that presently Galichina is less anti-Russian than Kiev and central Ukraine. This is probably because all the crazy Galichina nazis had moved to Kiev in the past few years. Also, while the population gets terribly brainwashed every day by ukro-MSM (they say things you won’t believe), the real anti-Russian layer isn’t that deep. The majority are simply deceived by ukro-propaganda constantly yelling about Russian invasion, or are just opportunists.
In that sense, it is truly sad how little Ukrainian population is capable of thinking and how much it runs on lowly emotions. It should be clear to anyone with half a brain that if Russian army indeed invaded Ukraine, it would be in Kiev within 2 days and in Lvov within one week or less. Since this isn’t happening, it should be clear that there is no Russian army present. Even OSCE and Kiev finally had to admit it. Yet, the thought implanted in people’s brains through zombifying propaganda will stay there like a thorn, constantly reinforced by new infusions of hate, until the thorn is removed. By many accounts, the Kiev junta is worse than Nazi Germany, and their propaganda is even more shameless.
The old vs. the new: Global Geopolitical Game
To understand truly what is going on, don’t focus exclusively on Ukraine or Donbass. Some events in Ukraine constitute those distractions I was talking about (unfortunately, very bloody and tragic kinds of distractions).
Presently, we are observing a global multilevel game, or struggle, however you look at it. Russia is helping Donbass. But Russia’s main focus is to play the high stakes game with US, Germany/EU, China and other players, thus slowly shifting the global geopolitical balance. All these players, by virtue of various interests and nuances, will slowly shift the balance of power that will influence the situation in Ukraine and everywhere in the world.
There is a lot more going on than meets the eye, including in areas very far from Ukraine. The recent events in Turkey, Greece, India, China, Iran, Armenia, Cuba, Latin America all fold into the same game, the most violent part of which is being played out in Ukraine.
Ukraine’s future is decided in Moscow and Washington DC, with the help of Berlin, Paris, Beijing and a few of other capitals. It is not necessarily decided in Donbass, Odessa or Kharkov (although their actions are important) – even less so in Kiev.
Once US backs off, EU and Ukraine will change their attitude immediately. What most people are missing here, and what I had talked about so many times, is that EU and Ukraine dare act this way ONLY BECAUSE OF the US BACKING AND ENCOURAGEMENT; the US blackmailing of certain EU countries and politicians also has to be taken into account. THE MOMENT theUS IS UNABLE TO DO SO ANYMORE – THIS WILL END.
Specific types of people float to the top in any society when the US turns on its confrontational provocations, directed at pitting countries and people against each other. Such is the nature of the US interference. When they are forced by events outside of their control to turn off this attitude and become a little nicer, confrontation usually stops or lessens. Examples abound. For instance, look at the recent Hong Kong events and China’s Muslim provinces. Look at Georgia, or Chechnya. Consider ISIS and AlQaeda.
Are there puppet masters hiding in the shadows? Yes, but they are not so hidden any more. Lately, they all had to expose themselves, which denotes their growing weakness. I call them Anglo-American elites. From my long-term observation, I think this is a more accurate label than most. Some call them NWO, cabal, etc. It doesn’t matter – whatever name suits you.
The important thing is that they do pull Obama, Merkel, Poroshenko’s, and EU politicians’ strings. The puppet masters must weaken sufficiently for the change to occur.
This is directly connected to the nearing end of the petrodollar era.
Incidentally, There will be no US and/or dollar collapse this year (2015), as many are predicting.
The change will start being manifest in 3D physical reality between 2016-18. It will be gradual process, so don’t expect a huge explosion. This kind of seminal change cannot be completed in one day.

Hi Lada – by good fortune I managed to find links to “President” on your site the other day and subsequently downloaded a Novorossia video called “Аэропорт_ Симфония войны [18 ]”. Problem is that the English subtitles were missing after the download and I wonder, whether there is not a way to embed the subtitles so that the file then automatically downloads the subtitles too.. I’m not a techie, so would have no idea whether embedding subtitles is possible. Forgive me clumsy way of explaining… but millions of us globally are desperate for the truth about Russia and what happened and continues happening in Ukraine…
