Armenia Maidan Paradox: Why New Pro-West Armenia Government Pledged Allegiance to Russia & Eurasian Union?

Today’s BIG REPORT!
THESE ARE EXTENSIVE EXCERPTS & OVERVIEW!
Eurasian Union Summit May 2018, Russia (second from left: Nikol Pashinyan, new Armenia PM, who was elected not through legitimate elections, but by the ‘street’ as a result of Kiev-Maidan-style protests. Despite that Armenia re-confirmed its interest in Eurasian Union and allegiance to Russia.)
OVERVIEW OF ARMENIA’S VOLATILE SITUATION
Armenia is one of the 5 full members of the Eurasian Union. As a weak country detached from Russia, Armenia is a lucrative and promising playground for Western NGOs and color revolution attempts. Armenia is a very small country, with the official population of 2.9 million. But this data could be exaggerated, as up to 2-3 million Armenians have emigrated and live in Russia alone. Many also live in the US and EU.
But even if we assume there are 2.9 million people residing in Armenia, for such a small population there are upward of 500-700 Western-based NGOs (I’ve heard estimates in thousands). Knowing how NGOs work and how they bribe locals in any given country, just imagine the scope of the pro-West brainwashing in Armenia!
It has to be noted that Russia had a similar infestation of US/UK NGO’s, but it was dealt with by Putin’s government between 2005-2015. However, some of the weak and corrupt post-Soviet space states are very much under siege by Western NGOs to this day. These NGOs buy up elites and the media, and they promise lavish rewards to the young. In Ukraine, we have seen the sad results such situation can lead to.
WHY ARMENIA IS A PRIZE FOR THE WEST
Lately Armenia has been regularly compared to Ukraine. In many ways, the situations in Ukraine and Armenia are similar, but in many ways they are drastically different.
Let’s see how this manifests in practice.
Like Ukraine, after the collapse of the USSR, Armenia gradually lost its compass and started forgetting its direction. The manifestation of its weakness was delayed, much like in Ukraine. For years, Russia continued to carry both Ukraine and Armenia, and that lulled both into complacency as they believed that despite different circumstances they could continue sucking the wealth our of Russia, without giving anything back.
But free lunch was coming to an end, as Russia in the 2000s began demanding responsibility and reciprocity from the former republics. That’s when color revolutions began manifesting in Ukraine (2004 and 2014), Armenia (2015-18) and Moldova (2007), Georgia (2003). There was also a ‘tulip’ color revolution in Kyrgyzstan, as well as unsuccessful attempts in Kazakhstan and Belarus. I described the deep psychological mechanisms of these events in ESR3.
In that respect the Ukraine Maidan and Armenia’s color revolution attempts are similar. But there are differences as well. Ukraine, after all, is a large country, located in the middle of Europe. It borders a number of countries, including several EU states and Russia, thus insuring markets and better cross-border penetration for the population, unable to find jobs inside the country. Ukraine also has access to very good ports in the Odessa region. Overall it inherited probably the best economic and industrial potential of all ex-Soviet republics.
Armenia is very small and landlocked. It borders only 4 countries, at least three of them hostile to it. There is no common border with Russia and no access to ports.
As a weak, poor and in many ways deeply compromised country, Armenia constitutes a lucrative piece for the Western bribery and brainwashing.
But therein also lies a problem for the West.
ARMENIAN MAIDAN ATTEMPTS
The attempts to play anti-Russian card in Armenia were many.
In the past several years Armenia and capital Erevan went through numerous attempts to execute color revolutions, using various false flags and economic hardship as pretexts. One was a violent protest after a serviceman from the Russian base committed a crime (it later transpired he was under the influence of drugs someone with an agenda secretly gave him); another protest, almost resulting in a full Maidan, was engineered around the 15% hike in consumer electricity price. An interesting part of both protests was that they attempted to exploit the anti-Russian card, demanding that Russian base leave Armenia and blaming Russia for the 15% electric bill hike.
The latest attempt, which took place in the spring of 2018, was centered around public discontent of Serzh Sargsyan continuing tenure in top posts. Sargsyan was till recently the president of Armenia, and when his presidential term was over he was immediately appointed prime minister of Armenia.
During the previous ‘Electric Maidan’ of 2015 the government succumbed to the demands of protesters and made a switch from the presidential republic to the parliamentary republic. I will explain later in this article how it happened and why it was significant.
Serzh Sargsyan was considered a voice of the oligarchs. It has to be noted that Armenian oligarchs in their vast majority made their fortunes either in Russia…
WHY RUSSIAN CONNECTION?
There is no conspiracy here at all. By some accounts, up to 1/2 of the Armenian population (could be more, since many aren’t registered) live and work in Russia. Those who left were the most proactive, fastest, shrewdest and most likely to succeed. Many best educated Armenians also left.
It’s important to note that Armenia was one of the most heavily subsidized Soviet republics. It sucked much more resources from Russia than it gave back, thus drastically over-consuming, while Russia severely under-consumed – all this is discussed in my previous post: PUTIN’SDOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
(I am in possession of a very rare and revealing diagram, showing clearly who subsidized whom in the USSR – one day I’ll share it with you!)
SELF-PRESERVATION OR CIA FAILURE? WHAT WENT WRONG WITH ARMENIAN MAIDAN?
And that’s when something very strange began to happen…
The clear and firm signal from the Armenian people was that protests UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES COULD BE ANTI-RUSSIAN. Just the opposite, Armenians went on record to say how important and close Russia was to them. When Ukrainian or Georgian provocateurs appeared in the crowd, attempting to shift the protests towards anti-Russian agenda, they were outed and expelled by self-policing crowds.
A big Armenian PR action began. Every Armenian who went public ardently proclaimed in interviews to the Russian media that Armenia’s situation was completely different from Ukrainian, and they got very offended if Russians called it ‘Armenian Maidan.’
Russians continued to watch silently and sceptically. The secret signal from the Kremlin was that Russia would act according to the new situation. And the new situation could potentially include pulling the plug on the Russian Gyumry base, Russia’s support of the peaceful resolution in Karabakh, as well as economic implications of an unknown scope.
Putin shakes Armenia PM Nikol Pashinyan’s hand in Russia, EAU summit 2018.
As a result, the newly installed by the street, unelected new prime minister Pashinyan, who was supported in his activities by Western NGOs and who just recently proclaimed that Armenia would exit EAU and work on joining EU and NATO, performed a full air flip, making a spectacular 180 degree turnaround. The very first international visit he made was to Russia, to take part in the EAU summit, where he proclaimed his allegiance to Russia and EAU.
ARMENIA’S PRECARIOUS GEOPOLITICAL SITUATION
Landlocked in the southern Caucasus, Armenia has borders only with 4 countries: Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iran and Georgia. It does not share a border with Russia. Out of the 4 countries it borders, Armenia is at odds and doesn’t have diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan (the state of cold war due to Gorny Karabakh conflict) and Turkey (where the genocide of Armenians took place in the beginning of 20th century).
Armenian Empire dreams…
As seen on the map above:
Big parts of the territory in this map presently belong to Turkey (a huge lump of ‘Western Armenia’), and a small part in the north belongs to Georgia, who already lost 1/3 of its territory after Abkhazia and S. Ossetia secession.
Not to mention the eastern-most ‘Armenia’, aka, Nagorno-Karabakh, populated mostly by Armenians, which was during the USSR an autonomous part of nearby Azerbaijan. The secession war against Azerbaijan began in Karabakh as soon as the USSR fell apart, or more precisely, it began even before 1991, but went into its hot phase after. The Karabakh situation can be compared to the Donbass situation.
It is so weak that without Russian military base it likely wouldn’t survive for long as a sovereign country. It can easily be swallowed by the 4 neighbors: Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
In this context, Armenia should be grateful forever to Russia for keeping balance in the region. Yet, in the past several years we have seen plenty of anti-Russian attacks.
Here are some pictures:
1. ‘Electric’ Maidan 2015 – due to the 15% hike in electric fees the near coup was executed. Russian business, who I very much suspect has clear Armenian roots, behaved very reasonably and agreed to rescind the hikes, at a financial loss to its bottom line. So did Russian government, who was forced to subsidize Armenian electricity market to avoid Kiev-style Maidan developing. Yet, anti-Russia/anti-Putin slogans were present at the Electric Maidan, actively encouraged by foreign interests.
This is a picture from the 2015 ‘Electric’ Maidan – you’ll recognize the figure of Putin in a compromising position (the sign reads: ‘into Putin’s a*s’):
The sheer signature of the Gyumri false flag points clearly at CIA/US, in conjunction with Armenian anti-Russian ‘revolutionaries’ on CIA/NGO payroll.
3. Below are the 2018 Armenian ‘Velvet revolution’ pics. But no, don’t believe your lying eyes… it certainly wasn’t a typical ‘Maidan color revolution.’
Truth be told, compared to Kiev and Ukraine, the Armenian ‘velvet revolution’ was a lot more peaceful and more controlled.
It ended in a civilized manner, despite certain elements pushing for violence. It failed to achieve its anti-Russian goals.
This is a big victory for Russia the Great Balancer and yet another step towards the Earth Shift!

We will be discussing the Earth Shifting and promising events in Moldova, which are also developing per my predictions! Moldova is much more important than many realize, and it’s not only because of my warm feelings towards it!
There is a lot of important new developments and shifts in Novorossia/Donbass/Ukraine! There is important news from Odessa too! We are very much behind discussing Ukraine-Novorossia. I’ll try to fit all this into my schedule this and/or next week!
This week I’ll also have some announcements!
Next week we’ll also have more Quantum Calibrations of countries/leaders/armies. Which country do you want me to calibrate next?
The newly declassified documents compiled by the George Washington University prove what Russian leaders, from Gorbachev to Putin, asserted for years: US and German leaders promised Gorbachev and Soviet FM Shevarnadze that after the fall of the Berlin Wall and re-unification of Germany NATO would under no circumstances expand eastward and that the balance of power and national interests of Russia would be fully taken into account. Germany, under this agreement, was supposed to be a neutral country.
US authorities and NATO have always publicly denied the existence of this agreement, which was promptly broken by the US, Germany, EU and NATO. Recently, ex-ambassador to Russia under Obama and a well-known Russophobe Michael McFaul, in an interview to an Estonian news service said that the assertion that NATO broke the promise given to Russians not to expand east is just a myth. As the documents prove, Russians were telling the truth, and US/Germany were indeed lying.
The evidence presented in the video above shows without a shadow of a doubt that US/Germany/EU/NATO lied and swindled Russia and the USSR. The temporary weakness of Russia was used as an excuse to break promises. Moreover, Germany never paid in full the agreed upon compensation for the withdrawal of Soviet troops, and we are talking billions of euros (plus close to 30 years worth of intrest!). This Germany denies as well, but I’m sure the documents to that effect will also come to light in due course. By the way, I have discussed this issue in Earth Shift Webinar 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
Incidentally, US as a rule appoints first-rate Russophobes, who pass for ‘Russia experts,’ as ambassadors to Russia. There was once an exception, but that single non-Russophobe ambassador didn’t survive in his post for too long and was quickly recalled.
You may remember my Twitter altercation with the so-called ‘Russia expert’ Michael McFaul. Read what happened here: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. Of course he did — a well-known fact in Russia, But it’s like Robert De Niro said in ‘Wag the Dog’ — ‘deny, deny, deny.’ They’ll always deny everything, unless they are caught red-handed, and even in that case those slippery ones will somehow squirm their way out of a tight spot.
McFaul has a large Twitter following consisting of first-rate Russophobes, many of them unfortunately Russian-speaking, such as the direct enemies of Putin, Ukraine nazis and nationalists, run-away oligarchs living in London and US, and Russian pro-West opposition.
In the wake of the Russian Olympic ban, a couple of days ago McFaul wrote that Russians should know that the Russian team, flag and anthem ban are all because of bad Putin. It is Putin who is to blame for the Russian athletes’ predicament, he proclaimed. In doing so, he: 1. confirmed that Russian athletes’ ban is politically motivated, 2. revealed fully who he is working for. It is clear that the whole ‘Russian Olympic ban’ psyop has been designed to divide Russian society and to try to damage Putin’s reputation before the upcoming Russian elections 2018. I am preparing a whole big report on what’s up — to be published soon! Stay tuned!

The last act of THE IDIOCRACY+ tragic comedy is unfolding in front of our very eyes. Poroshenko’s junta ruled by the US, and the ukro-nazis continue plunging the poor Ukraine into abyss. What is happening in Kiev today would be a hilarious farce, if not for tens of thousands this ugly regime has killed, and if not for millions whose lives they destroyed.
I dubbed it THE IDIOCRACY+ a couple of years ago. For instance, see this post from Dec. 2015: Spiders in a Jar: Saakashvili, Avakov, Poroshenko and Ukraine’s Idiocracy+
Ever since, the THE IDIOCRACY+ continues spreading like cancer, and it gets worse by the day. This is my recent article, among other things describing the new conundrums facing the junta and Poroshenko, and the new adventures of ex-Georgia-president, ex-Odessa-governor and international criminal Saakashvili: EU Trouble: Why Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Romania Support Separatism in Ukraine (10/19/17)
BREAKING NEWS & LATEST SUMMARY FROM UKRAINE:
I am sure you have not seen any of this in any Western press or TV. Perhaps some bits and pieces in various alternative info sources…
As usual, here on FuturisTrendcast, I give you the FULL picture. Sometimes it means I forego the immediate sensationalism and continue watching the events unfold until I discern the pattern and a full picture, so I can pass it on to you.
The summary of the latest events in a nutshell:
As I wrote previously, Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukraine citizenship given to him personally by Poroshenko so he could illegally become the governor of Odessa. After that, he was booted out of Ukraine. In October 2017 Saakashvili re-entered western Ukraine through Poland. On the Polish side he was helped to infiltrate Ukraine by Poland, while on Ukraine side he was cheered and supported by western Ukraine/Lvov ukro-nazis, who treated him as their unelected chieftain.
The combined forces of Ukraine police and special military units, complete with tanks and armed vehicles, half-heartedly ‘resisted’ that re-entry, but it really resembled a farce. That’s not how any state acts if they are determined not to let anyone into the country. See more info and watch what went on in above-linked article!
Saakashvili since has roamed Ukraine free, despite the fact that he has no Ukraine or any other country’s citizenship. Ukraine authorities have been afraid to touch him. The rumor has it that US, Poland and Germany have basically told Poroshenko to lay off. (Does that remind anyone of 2013-14 Kiev Maidan and how Yanukovich was threatened not to do anything about it by US and EU?).
Saakashvili settled in his apartment in central Kiev together with his wife and son, under the very nose of Poroshenko and his archenemy Avakov, the internal minister of Ukraine — see their fight in Spiders in a Jar.
Next, Saakashvili and his loyal ukro-nazis (The right sector, Svoboda, the works) organized Maidan-3 in Kiev. The stated purpose: to abolish Poroshenko and the government in power. And still, no one arrested or deported Saakashvili! Let’s also remember that he is NOT a Ukraine citizen, but a person without a country, who is in Ukraine illegally. Let’s also recall that Kiev on many occasions arrested and deported the accredited Russian journalists for simply reporting the truth, and banned from entry into Ukraine Russian artists for speaking Russian.
The Maidan-3 tent city grew in Kiev’s central square, just like in 2013-14. Except there was a crucial element missing, of which I wrote in October: the support from their usual sponsors in the West. Western MSM is silent on Maidan-3, none of the foreign ministers, politicians, diplomats or ex-presidents from US/Canada/EU showed up to prod and escalate Maidan-3. Plus, what misfortune! There is really no financing to speak of. Ok, maybe some little pittance from CIA slush funds.
A I wrote in EU Trouble back in October, there is NO support for Mishiko-Maidan (named after Saak) in the West. Saakashvili is clearly attempting to sell himself by proving his usefulness to the new boss, Trump. He has calculated that Trump hates Poroshenko and the present junta for supporting Hillary, as well as for starting the Paul Manafort scandal in 2016; scandal, which jeopardized Trump’s election campaign and which remains a big thorn in Trump’s side. And that’s true, Trump does hate Kiev and Poroshenko.
Another reason for that hate is the alleged participation of Kiev in the new N. Korea nuclear program.
But what Saakashvili doesn’t get (or he is just desperate) is that Trump doesn’t decide much. Trump or not, US remains committed to the hybrid 4D war against Russia. Ukraine, perhaps poorly, does perform the necessary function of a thorn and cannon fodder in this war (read more in EU Trouble).
For more important intel read Secret Order to Destroy Slavs and Re-Write their Genetic Code! 3 Ingredients of Color Revolution (New Theory)!
Therefore, seeing that Maidan-3 is no go, Saakashvili and his ukro-nazi cronies switched tactics. They began to ‘peacefully protest,’ demanding the impeachment of Poroshenko. They go around carrying banners ‘Impeach Poroshenko’ and yelling their usual ukro-nazi slogans, ‘Glory to Ukraine, glory to heroes.’
Ukraine is supposed to have presidential elections soon, although the date continues being postponed and is still shrouded in mystery. It appears Poroshenko is dreading elections so much that he is unable to commit and hopes that if he announces the polling date as late as possible his opponents won’t have time to consolidate. Poroshenko’s approval rating is in the teens, and with that kind of rating he is considered the most popular politician in Ukraine. This gives you an idea how distrusted and hated any politician in Ukraine is!
Saakashvili is making it very difficult for Poroshenko to maintain even this dismal rating. As you recall, in October I explained that the only way for Poroshenko to stay alive is to continue being elected. Once he is out of office, his life isn’t worth a dime. Russians joke that he would eventually have to escape Ukraine to join another ex, Yanukovich, in exile in Russian Rostov.
This was the situation till 2 days ago.
There have been credible rumors that SBU is secretly working on a plan to evict Saakashvili out of Ukraine. They were afraid to do what any normal country would do — just deport him. Let’s again recall that they weren’t afraid to burn people alive in Odessa, arrest the truth-tellers or bomb the people of Donbass. But they are mortally afraid of ukro-nazis and Saakashvili.
Kiev junta also couldn’t make up their minds where to deport Saakashvili: to the US patsy Georgia, which threatens to put him in jail, but will always do only what US says, or to US vassal Poland, which will do anything to spite Russia, and of course to please US.
My intel has been telling me since October that special SBU units were formed and trained for a secret operation ‘Saakashvili out.’ And yesterday, they finally decided to execute their plan.
But they didn’t know who they were dealing with! Saakashvili ran to the rooftop of his apartment building, where he threatened to jump. Meanwhile, a huge, and as usual with ukro-nazis, violent crowd of his supporters gathered below. They were screaming ‘shame’ and their ukro-nazi slogans. Since most Saakashvili supporters are from Ukrainian-speaking central and western Ukraine villages, they were yelling all this in Ukrainian.
While on the roof, Saakashvili began giving a speech to his supporters. Saakashvili, so to be accepted as one of them, actually made an effort to learn Ukrainian, and could speak it passably. On several occasions I saw him pointedly addressing the crowd in Ukrainian only.
The only problem, when one is nervous or agitated, he reverts to the language one is most comfortable with. So, Saakashvili, about to be arrested, stood on the roof, addressing the crowd in… Russian. That same hated Russian, the language of the arch-enemy.
Meanwhile, SBU operatives reached Saakashvili on the roof and carefully began bringing him down. With much difficulty they finally loaded him into a van, which was attacked by ukro–nazis, who liberated Saakashvili out of the van and victoriously almost carried him away! You can see all that on videos below.
So, Saak is back at large. Get your semechki and popcorn! Let’s see where the next act of this tragic farce will lead.
Recall my early 2014 prediction: Ukraine will turn back to Russia and away from the West in 2018. So far, we are seemingly seeing the opposite. Yes, the timeline has been altered dramatically by the dark forces since I made that prediction — I did talk about that previously. I will eventually have a full update — most likely in the new year.
However, there are interesting signs that signal a subtle turnaround. I hear persistent intel from Ukraine that many of those who in 2014 supported Maidan, don’t any more.
Another thing that will happen is that Ukraine will cease being an important gas transiter to EU as of 2019, once Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream are built. This will alter the situation in Ukraine dramatically.
Secession of parts of Ukraine is also on the menu and only the fact that US/EU continue propping up the Kiev regime is what’s holding it up for the time being.
AND HERE’S THE CLINCHER TO THE WHOLE STORY!
Kiev announced that Saakashvili in fact is… the Kremlin spy! According to Kiev, Saakashvili and his ukro-nazis are financed by Putin to destabilize Ukraine and to unseat Poroshenko.
POLL! I am inviting you to share your opinions in COMMENTS! What do you think:
1 Whose agent is Saakashvili: Kremlin’s, CIA’s, Poland’s, EU’s, or is he simply a desperate freelancer, trying to survive? Perhaps he is an ardent warrior for justice, out to fix Ukraine after he successfully ruined his own country, Georgia?
2 Should Poroshenko be impeached? Should he go to jail for all his crimes?
3 If Poroshenko is impeached, who will be next president of Ukraine: Yulia Timoshenko? Saakashvili? Some ukro-nazi? Putin? Right-wing Russian politician Zhirinovsky? Head of DPR Zakharchenko? Will it get better or worse?
4 Can Maidan-3 succeed without a huge and unwavering US/EU support and will this support come?

Secret Order to Destroy Slavs and Re-Write their Genetic Code! 3 Ingredients of Color Revolution (New Theory)!
Let’s figure out MULTI-DIMENSIONALLY, and from the standpoint of THE EARTH SHIFT THEORY, what this is all about.
Yes, the Internet is abuzz with the news. It has now been admitted publicly that Saakashvili and his Georgian mercenaries were behind the Kiev Maidan assassinations, previously blamed on Yanukovich, and of course, on Russia & Putin. The people killed during Maidan by unknown snipers are celebrated as ‘martyrs’ by ukro-nazis and Kiev junta, and they are called ‘Nebesnaya Sotnya,’ translated as ‘the Celestial 100.’ In the absence of true heroes and accomplishments, a false mythology was hastily put together for the Kiev ukro-nazi regime. According to this fake mythology ‘the Celestial 100,’ in other words, those poor dupes who served as sacrificial lambs to the ‘unknown’ snipers on Maidan, are remembered as heroes who gave their lives for ‘freedom’ gained through the ‘people’s uprising against despot Yanukovich (!) and against Russian dictate (!).’
It has been also officially established and admitted by culprits that not only Georgian, but also Lithuanian professional killers participated in the mass assassinations on Maidan. Let me remind everyone that Lithuanian president Dalia Gribauskaite personally was one of the biggest supporters and instigators of Kiev Maidan, the ukro-nazi coup and the ousting of Yanukovich. Lithuania, along with Poland, hosted training camps for ukro-nazi thugs who were attacking and killing people in Kiev and all over Ukraine, including the peaceful delegation for the anti-Maidan protests from Crimea in 2014.
The Georgian killers, the ousted Saakashvili regime politicians, mafia and crooks, including ex-Georgian president himself, were direct and active participants and instigators since the start. I describe this, and how same Georgian crooks got high positions within Ukraine in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. On LadaRay.com you can still get for free the Odessa Section of this report, where all this is talked about.
That main battle ram, tasked with making sure the Kiev color revolution succeeded and Ukraine was turned into anti-Russia, consisted of the following countries: Poland, Lithuania and to a smaller degree, Romania. Georgia was the best represented, but perhaps less officially so, since Saakashvili, a very well-known US agent, was ousted by then. It has to be noted that Georgia is now making steps to restore relations with Russia, after they were so rudely and ruthlessly severed by the US and Saakashvili’s efforts in 2008. In 2014 many Georgians, including Saakashvili’s entire entourage, together with all his professional mercenaries, crooks, mafia and pro-Saakashvili ex-politicians literally invaded Ukraine. Some since have been booted out, but many, including Saakashvili himself, are still causing trouble.
Of course, the ex-Soviet-association countries, Poland, Lithuania, Romania and Georgia, were just the executioners of the BIG plan. This is how these ‘countries’ with hardly any economy to speak of make big money and that’s how they keep afloat. Who pays them? The actual puppeteers, of course! And these are the usual suspects, residing anywhere between Washington, London, Brussels and Berlin.
But they didn’t make any secret of that. Many high level officials and politicians from the EU and US were openly on Maidan, calling on the ousting of Yanukovich and on Ukraine severing all ties with Russia. We named the names before, and here are some of them one more time: the US senator McCain, USA’s Victoria Nuland, US ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, EU FM Catherine Ashton, many EU parliament members and top politicians, Polish state ministers and top politicians, including the surviving of the Kachinski twins, called ‘the shadow ruler of Poland.’ These were found not only on Maidan. Per recently published memoirs of Yanukovich’s prime minister Azarov, both he and Yanukovich received daily pressure and threats from Nuland and other US/EU top brass, including the calls from EU heads of state (!) telling them to do nothing about Maidan and to sever all ties with Russia, or face the regime change and personal danger.
If Yanukovich and his people were any smarter they’d realize that those who show fear, those who succumb to threats, and those who negotiate with terrorists will lose everything in the end. Despite Yanukovich/Azarov seemingly complying with West’s demands to stand down, they lost their wealth, their positions, reputations, and ultimately, their country.
SAAKASHVILI, POROSHENKO & WHY THE WEST WON’T FINANCE MAIDAN-3
Saakashvili is trying to orchestrate Maidan-3 in Kiev, and his goal is to oust Poroshenko, while his personal ambition is to become the new ruler of Ukraine. But this time his US bosses won’t finance it. Why? Very simple. All they wanted from poor Ukraine is to become the cannon fodder in their 4D hybrid war against Russia, and in a hot 3D war, if they were really lucky and if Kiev turned out really stupid. They achieved their goal, albeit partially. They know that this is about as far as they can get.
Russia demonstrated to the US that they would not be able to step beyond a certain limit. The limit has been clearly defined and the tide began to turn. Russia also demonstrated that she could hurt them back, if they continued pushing. They can’t do it openly any more, as they so easily did in 2014, using the distraction of the Sochi Olympics, when Russia was too busy and vulnerable, and could not protect Ukraine on time.
Their strategy right now is to see if they can quietly manage to push Poroshenko to a new round of escalation and to a bigger and more open conflict with Russia. Ukraine Rada is trying to pass the bill severing diplomatic relations with Russia, which is one of the steps in this attempted new escalation. This possibility is so far successfully averted by Russia the Great Balancer by engaging Europeans, who can’t afford even more escalation before the winter. They do want Russian gas, after all.
The lines in the sand have been drawn, culprits have been told in no uncertain terms, not a step beyond a certain point. As they would say in Spain and L. America, ‘No pasaran!’ — ‘They won’t pass!’
Hence, why would they invest in removing Poroshenko now that he, perhaps poorly, but does fulfill his role of being a major thorn in Russia’s back? Pushing him subtly and relentlessly into an escalation of conflict with Russia? Sure, why not. Saakashvili, along with ukro-nazi thugs, is now used as one of those patsies to keep Poroshenko in check. Poroshenko is presently in the fight of his life, being constantly afraid to lose his ‘throne.’ If he does, he won’t end well. Consequently, staying on top is the only way for him to stay alive.
But as we are seeing, a direct and open support of Kiev regime and Poroshenko by the West is diminishing. There is even a certain revolt against him and ukro-nazis in some EU countries. All that was discussed in detail in EU Trouble: Why Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Romania Support Separatism in Ukraine.
Poor Saakashvili, no external power wants Maidan-3 he is so eagerly trying to push. Saakashvili outlived his usefulness and he won’t end well (remember my ESR8: Black Sea Gambit predictions about him!). Read: More on the latest 2017 exploits of Saakashvili! and FREE Part 1 of Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit: Odessa is the Key!
All the above geopolitical perturbations are rather revealing and interesting. But to truly understand what’s happening, we must dive even deeper!
HOW DOES THE CIA COLOR REVOLUTION & THE INVISIBLE SNIPER TECHNOLOGY WORK?
The color revolution invisible sniper technology is an old one from the CIA playbook. It is designed to pit different factions against each other, when people are shot and killed on both sides by invisible snipers.
First, it is important to understand that the infamous color revolution hidden snipers technique did not work in Russia in 1992, when it was immediately discovered that snipers were shooting from the roof of the US Embassy in Moscow (!), and therefore, the color revolution and civil war intended to finish the destruction of Russia didn’t work. Further, the sniper technique was a complete fiasco in Crimea in the spring of 2014. There was an attempt to begin a war between Russian and Ukrainian troops stationed there, and it failed completely. Why is that? I am happy to say that Russians have learned their lessons, and turned out much smarter and more astute than others, having quickly figured it out in both instances.
Unfortunately, the CIA sniper technique worked wonders of the most gruesome kind during the Kiev Maidan 2014.
It has been proven time and again that the Kiev Maidan was orchestrated and instigated from abroad, as a simultaneous collusion by a number of countries, with strings pulled from one center. I wrote about who was who and who we can easily pinpoint as culprits, in a number of articles and Earth Shift Reports between 2014 and 2017.
There were 2 MAJOR goals in the extensive foreign invasion of the Kiev Maidan:
1. To tear Ukraine away from Russia and create anti-Russia on Russian borders.
Those violent, greedy, naive and undereducated people who created and supported the Kiev Maidan completely missed the point. Most of them absolutely honestly believed that the West, as well as those from post-Soviet space who ‘helped them,’ were there to help Ukraine enter the ‘hospitable family of EU nations’ and to improve the standard of living of Ukrainians. They did discover later that it was nothing of the sort.
The real goal was to weaken Russia the Great Balancer to such a degree that she would not be able to facilitate The Great Earth Shift, which is presently happening before our very eyes. Stopping the Earth Shift was the only way for the outdated Western system to survive. This was the underlying reason behind collapsing the USSR and behind pitting the people of Yugoslavia against each other in the ’90s.
In this scenario Ukraine was designated as cannon fodder in the war against Russia.
2. But there was (and still is!) another hidden goal:
To kill off as many Slavs as possible. If not kill, create such animosity between various branches of the Slavic peoples that there would be no return to past friendship and kinship. Weakening the Slavic connection and re-writing the Slavic genetic code is the primary goal and major objective!
THE SECRET ORDER TO EXTERMINATE SLAVS, ELIMINATE SLAVIC CULTURE & RE-WRITE GENETIC CODE
It has been proven in the past that, as such genetic code and kinship weaken, the populations of many Slavic countries, such as Eastern Slavs and Southern Slavs, become depressed. The result is the gradual diminishing and weakening of the will to live of the population, even if there is no hot war present. This is what happened in post-USSR in the ’90s and in ex-Yugoslavia in the ’90s-2000s.
In the 20th century the Slavic population was the hardest hit of all. WWI and WWII took the biggest toll on Slavs, and of course, more than on anyone, on Russians (including the Belorussian and Ukrainian/Malorussian branches of Russians). The collapse of the USSR and the Yugoslavia civil war took its most recent huge toll. If in mid-20th century Slavic population constituted over 7% of world’s population, right now it is only about 3.5%, and continues declining.
This is very dangerous — read on to see why!
Those of us who travel freely through history and timelines have seen this done previously many times. For example, the genetic code of what we call today ‘western Ukrainians’, who were called ‘Rusyns’ (Rus-ins) in the 19th century, has been drastically altered, generating a poison pill within Ukraine we see manifest today as ukro-nazis.
Or look at the example of Poland, Slavs in name only: the whole country has been sold and re-sold over and over to the highest bidder for centuries, and what’s amazing, Poles are actually proud of it! The brutal civil war and color revolutions which occurred in 1990s-2000s in the Balkans are also in the same category.
Or look at Lithuanians, as only one small example of many: they once used to be Slavs, aka, the Baltic ‘western’ Russians, but they largely forgot their roots. I have to say that not everyone did, as I know there are some Lithuanians who try to remember and keep alive the old Rus affinities. What’s more, large numbers of the population are very much against pro-US Lithuanian president Gribauskaite and her clique, who only stay in power because of the US and EU political backing, military and financial infusions.
These are just the easiest and nearest examples. We could go deeper in history and recall whether Scandinavians are Slavs; how Russian names, despite the completely re-written code of their carriers ended up all over the world; what the words Sweden, Switzerland, Vienna, Rome and London really mean, and much more. But that is some very convoluted forbidden history and linguistics, and a topic for another discussion.
Therefore, there is a wholesale assault against Slavic peoples everywhere, sometimes direct and sometimes hidden and subtle. There has been an effort to make Slavs, as carriers of ancient Forgotten Wisdom and Forbidden History, forget their roots, lose their genetic code and succumb to Westernization.
The ultimate goal, of course, is to weaken and damage beyond repair Russia The Great Balancer by taking away the support from brotherly nations and important and indispensable parts of the Russian population, such as Ukrainians/Malorussians/Rusyns. If Russia The Great Balancer is compromised and weakened to a great degree, they hope it would be easier to do away with the only force that stands in the way of globalism, NWO and Western imperialistic expansionism.
And this brings us to the main point I want to make! Those Slavs who allow themselves to be manipulated against other Slavs, are just dumb, dumb and dumber. This, first of all, concerns Ukraine. It also concerns Poland and Lithuania (a close relative of the Slavs, with easily traced Slavic/Russian roots). But there are others, such as the peoples of the Balkans, who allowed themselves to be pitted in brotherly civil wars throughout the ’90s and who later allowed themselves to be divided and fragmented further. This happened because of pride, ego and greed — all very low calibrations.
It also concerns such closely related to Russians people as Bulgarians, who are completely under the US/EU thumb. Let’s not forget Czechs and Slovaks, Western Slavs with largely the same story.
If the masses refused to allow foreign interests to interfere and pit people against each other, it would have been much harder to execute such adverse scenarios.
My suggestion: get your noses out of you-know-what, look around and figure out who profits from your squabbles and animosity! And understand that the only ones who are losing out are you! Then look at yourselves in the mirror and recall who you are and who you aren’t!
And this brings us to the culmination of this article!
THREE NECESSARY INGREDIENTS FOR A SUCCESSFUL COLOR REVOLUTION
This is a brand new part of my EARTH SHIFT THEORY, never shared before. You will likely hear me talk about this in future books and webinars. Today, I want to give you this primer!
I have determined that there are 3 Necessary and Sufficient Ingredients of any color revolution and/or coup. And these are:
- Foreign interference
- Betrayal of the interests of their country by the elites
- Either ignorance, indifference or corruption of the large part of the population, often all 3. The population may be bought, duped and/or simply dumbed down.
If all three are present, then executing any revolt, coup or color revolution is a walk in the park. If only two are present, these are normally Nos. 1 and 2, then the color revolution is much harder, if not impossible, to execute. If only No. 1 is present, in other words, the foreign interference, color revolution is impossible.
Ukraine: All three were present at the 2014 Kiev Maidan, and look at the result!
USSR/Russia 1989-1992: All three were present, as a consequence the USSR fell apart and Yeltsin came to power. The population of Russia and USSR as a whole was largely duped.
Russia 2000-2018 and beyond: No. 1 is amply present as relentless and enormous foreign interference in Russia’s politics, economy, finance and social balance. But No. 2 and No. 3 are conspicuously absent. The population has learned from past mistakes, including those of Ukraine and doesn’t fall for it. The elites are refusing to betray their country, no matter how they are seduced and intimidated. And the result is… the opposite of what Western puppeteers were intending! We discuss all that in detail in THE PUTIN ENIGMA!
The very recent examples of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Egypt and some others demonstrate the presence of the No. 1 ingredient only, and partial, or none of No. 2 and No.3 ! Foreign interference is very much present, while No. 2 and No. 3 ingredients are either insignificant or missing. Hence, no success for color revolutions in either of these.
This, in short, is the new segment of the EARTH SHIFT THEORY.

Quote from it: Sometimes I hear from my readers that I have a ‘Russian perspective.’ Well, my friends, that’s the most valuable and thought after perspective to have these days, as we are now going through The Great Earth Shift and Russia the Great Balancer is at its forefront. Presently, Russia is dealing with the lopsided chaos created by the West around the world, rebalancing it in a new and revolutionary way. Rest assured, if you are listening to me and my ‘perspective,’ then you’ve got a front row seat for the whole show!

HEADS UP, DEAR FUTURIST TRENDCAST FOLLOWERS!
Denny Hunt, the host of WhyIsThisTrue, and I have recorded a new interview. In the interview we discuss why some people in the West feel a mysterious connection to Russia when they seemingly have no Russian heritage. What is behind this attraction — past lives? Or is it the fact that people are awakening to the fact that Russia – The Great Balancer is the only force on the planet which can provide stability and balance? We also discuss: the forbidden history of Russia and how the history of the world was falsified; The New Chronology by Fomenko and Nosovsky, and how and why 1000 years were added to the so-called ‘medieval times.’
This interview should come up in a few days (I’ll let you know and provide the links)!

DIPLOMATIC WAR: RUSSIA TO EXPEL 755 US DIPLOMATS AND STAFF
Putin has announced that the staff of the American embassy in Moscow, as well as consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok are to be reduced by 755 people. This will bring the US diplomatic and support staff in Russia to 455 people, down from 1100, which will be on par with the number of Russian diplomatic and support staff in the US. Both US diplomatic and technical staff has to leave the country by September 1.
Moscow also announced that US diplomatic missions in Russia are losing the use of storage facilities in Chertanovo area of Moscow, as well as the embassy dacha resort in Serebryany Bor near Moscow.
US embassy Chertanovo warehouses access to which has been revoked as of August 1:
Side note about color revolution in Russia, pro-West ‘opposition’ and Navalny
I should mention that Trump recently announced that the US ambassador and much of the staff in Russia would be replaced soon. It’s not clear yet what form it would take, but there is a possibility of more future Russian sanctions against new US staff, most, if not all of whom tend to be engaged in creating a color revolution and regime change in Russia. As the 2018 Presidential Election in Russia nears, the US embassy spies have tripled their efforts to destabilize Russia.
A notorious recent example was how in the middle of a local election US diplomats were caught on camera meeting with opposition leader Alexey Navalny. Similar documented meetings, including passing on of suitcases full of cash took place in the past. Some of that had been caught on camera and shown on national Russian TV.
Navalny is well-known for his unsanctioned, openly manipulative and provocative rallies in Moscow, the latest of which was a provocation during a Russian State holiday, subjecting unsuspecting holiday-goers with families and small children to danger in the center of Moscow. Navalny was also exposed for recruiting young teenagers to do his bidding, who were promised a good payday for coming out to protest (sounds familiar — Kiev Maidan anyone?). Per Russian sources, Alexey Navalny had previously been exposed in various journalistic investigations as a CIA asset on US payroll.
The true popular support of Navalny and other anti-Putin, pro-West ‘opposition’ leaders is anywhere between 1 and 2 percent, as previous elections showed. However, using the support and training US and their vassal Poland provide, they make a lot of noise on social media and in streets, attempting to reproduce the Kiev Maidan 2014 scenario. Are they really this stupid and don’t get it that Ukraine scenario is impossible in Russia, that the population will simply come out and bury them, should they try anything like that? In part, yes, they are that stupid. After all, it did work for them to dismantle the Soviet Union. They run on the old CIA playbook inertia, failing to grasp that today’s Russia, and Putin as Russia’s leader, are a completely different story.
But in part, they don’t care if they achieve their ultimate goal or not. Plan B involves simply destabilizing Russia, weakening Putin and miring Russia in internal problems, so that Russia and Putin cannot participate effectively in their role as The Great Balancer of the Planet Earth. If they can somehow make Putin so weak and compromised that he would not run for presidency next year, that would be their ultimate wet dream (obviously, NOT gonna happen).
In conclusion of this side note, I recommend you check out my essential FT article exposing Michael McFaul: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. This wolf in sheep’s clothing, universally hated in Russia, is now engaged through his Twitter account in very skillfully igniting discord between Russia and US, and Russia and Ukraine. As I said in above-linked article, when they choose to use their talents for evil, all of us suffer.
As usual, Putin waited till last second with his ‘US diplomatic staff reduction’ move and gave as much benefit of the doubt to Trump administration as possible. And as usual, Putin’s move is surgically designed and carefully thought through.
If you recall, just as he was leaving the White House in December, Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats, giving them and their families, including school children, hardly 48 hours to leave the country. Check out my December 2016 article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations. This was done in a notoriously cruel and inhumane fashion, so that families would be unable to settle their financial, housing and school affairs. In fact, they hardly had any time to pack.
Obama also took away two Russian diplomatic resorts, where the children of diplomats could go to summer camp and where families went for R&R. One such resort was not far from Washington DC. In 1977, The Soviet government officially purchased the compound for $1.2 mln.
Usually, such diplomatic compounds would be swapped between countries, based on mutual agreement. For instance, there was an agreement between the USSR, inherited by Russia, and USA about mutual exchange of properties in each country, to be used for diplomats and their families as private resorts or other needs. If the US allotted a piece of such real estate to Russia (USSR) in the US, a comparable piece of real estate had to be allotted to the USA in Russia.
The problem is that the resort near Washington DC wasn’t even a part of the exchange deal. It was purchased for $1.2 mln fair and square, and was fully owned by Russia. Therefore, taking away that particular resort amounts to an illegal expropriation of private property by the US government, using threats and force. This never happened even at the height of the Cold War. And you still think the USSR was bad?
I described why this was done by the USA right before the New Year – Christmas holidays, in the above referenced article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats.
The first words ‘I hate being right’ refer to the fact that I predicted things like this would happen in my bestselling Earth Shift Report 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER (release Oct. 20-21, 2016).
In the report I predicted that Trump would be put in a straitjacket so he would not be able to fulfil his campaign promises. I also said that there would be no need to assassinate him, that a whole big and all-encompassing campaign would be designed around him and his people, in order to sabotage anything he tried to change, until he would be forced to cave in and make deals in order to simply survive.
The frantic activity to sabotage Russia-US relations in late December by Obama, when usually a lame duck president would be playing golf, accounts for the fact that the outgoing administration had to create as many obstacles to improving Russia-US relations as possible. As we remember, ‘improving Russia-US relations’ was one of the key promises of the Trump campaign, which no doubt helped him win presidency.
In EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM (release Feb. 4, 2017) I re-affirmed what I said in Earth Shift Report 16. I also expanded on it and brought up new details and intel. Just a week into Trump being in office it was already abundantly clear that he would quickly cave in and try to make deals with those who did everything to sabotage him — in order to survive. In the webinar we talked about the probability of impeachment, and when it was likely happen.

4D WAR BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW: TRUMP’S STRAITJACKET & NEW ANTI-RUSSIAN SANCTIONS
In my writings and talks, I also explained why Russia did not retaliate as soon as the Russian diplomats were expelled and Russian property was expropriated by the USA. Putin and Russia understood what was happening. They were graciously giving the Trump administration time to settle in and act accordingly. One of the promises Trump made early on was that once in office, he would immediately take steps to return Russian properties and diplomats. It never happened. Russians still waited, because during phone calls, Trump explained to ‘dear Vladimir’ that he was in a tight spot: recall the phrase I coined while predicting this outcome: ‘Trump’s straitjacket.’
July 7-8 G20 in Hamburg came, along with the much-anticipated meeting between Putin/Lavrov and Trump/ Tillerson. Discussed were Syria, Ukraine and N. Korea, as well as anti-Russian sanctions and China. The promise by Trump administration to return Russian diplomats and properties was raised more than once during negotiations, according to Russian FM Lavrov. After the meeting, Lavrov stated, with a very disappointed expression on his face, that no progress on that front was achieved and that the work would continue.
Let’s recall that the only progress that was achieved during G20 Trump-Putin meeting, as far as Russia-US cooperation goes, was on Syria. This corresponds with my EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM prediction, where I said that I am reasonably skeptical (I tried to break the bad news slowly and mildly) about Trump being able to turn around relations with Russia due to his tight straitjacket, and that the only cooperation between Russia and US I can see is in Syria — and only tactical, only in small ways, nothing substantial or truly groundbreaking.
Trump’s straitjacket turned out very tight; it was constructed solidly and much faster than many of my readers thought possible. That is because they didn’t waste any time: Plan B was already in motion even before US election, when it was becoming clear that Trump could win, while Hillary was not fit for office. And what did you think, they’d wait, naively hoping their candidate would win? These forces, lurking in the dark, work on contingencies months and even years ahead, depending on the situation.
Speaking of planning… I am sure Russia was preparing the US diplomats expulsion months ahead as well, but was giving Trump/Tillerson the benefit of the doubt till last second. In the true fashion of the Great Balancer and Harmonizer, Russia wanted to see whether it was possible to resolve the issue without rocking the boat and without wrecking the US-Russia relationship even further.
However, instead of any sort of return gesture of good will, typically for the aggressively imbalanced West, Russia received new sanctions. These new sanctions, passed by the Congress by a landslide (only 3 were against), target Russia’s very economic livelihood: the Energy Sector. They also target one of the key Russian infrastructure projects to the EU: Nord Stream 2. In fact, the document published by Congress, which details sanctions against three main US enemies, Russia, Iran and N. Korea, dedicates two-thirds of its pages to Russia. It states point-blank that the goal of the US is to sabotage Nord Stream 2 at all cost.
Trump didn’t sign the new sanctions into law yet, but there is no chance of his vetoing them as the Congress adopted them practically anonymously and presidential veto can be easily overcome. This is that ‘Trump’s straitjacket’ — in action. This is that by-partisan war against Trump in full swing, of which I warned in Earth Shift Report 16 and EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1.
Therefore, dear readers, you can forget about Trump if you still had any illusions.
By the way, look at what happened with the repeal of Obamacare, and look at the number McCain has pulled on the Senate floor. As I advised you all in 2015-16: forget old divisions on democrats vs. republicans, left vs. right wing. This is all so 20th century!
The new No. 1 telltale litmus test of who is who is how they feel and act regarding Russia. No. 2: how they feel about US hegemony and bases all over the world. Once you have done these two tests, you can know for sure if such and such politician deserves your vote.
In this regard, I would like to ask you all, my dear American readers. Who has voted in a Congress full of rabid Russophobes? The Congress represents in a nutshell the American people. Is that what Americans really are?
VP Mike Pence has indicated that Trump will be signing the new anti-Russian sanctions because ‘of Russia’s destabilizing role in Ukraine.’ In other words, Trump completely caved in to survive his first term, as predicted. But it’s very doubtful he will, also as predicted. I’ll monitor this situation. But my general advice: forget Trump, he is finished — CONSIDER THIS MY NEW PREDICTION.
Speaking of which, the rumor is Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as Secretary of State. It’s visible to the naked eye that he is experiencing threats and huge pressure, and cannot control his own employees. Don’t blame him, ultimately, he values his life too. But he will (most likely) stay till the end of this year. I am not too concerned about the likes of Tillerson. These types always morph and adapt to whatever comes their way, they easily betray their principles and promises, if it suits them. Tillerson, just like Trump, may have had some relatively good ideas about making up with Russia, etc., but he, along with Trump, can easily forget those ideas, and make deals with the devil in order to come out of this situation with a personal gain, or at least with as little loss as possible.
However, the point is Trump is losing allies and shedding people left and right. Very soon he’ll be left all alone and will cave in completely.
4D WARS INTENSIFY: US-RUSSIA GAS WAR, EUROPE & NORD STREAM 2
The new anti-Russian sanctions target Western and Central Europe and those EU companies that are participating in Nord Stream 2. The enthusiasm for Nord Stream 2 in Europe has been huge. Something to the tune of $5.5 euros was pledged by EU investors immediately, before the construction began. At this point the Nord Stream pledge should be bigger than that.
Germany is the biggest investor. In addition to pledged billions, it has vested interest and direct participation in the construction. Germany supplies the gas pipes for the project, those same pipes that are targeted by new sanctions.
Italy, Austria, Hungary, Finland and others also pledged billions and participation. Germany is the hardest hit, but all these countries are in shock. After all, they are so used to doing what US tells them to do. Now they find themselves in an unnatural territory. There is much hurt feeling that ‘the US has betrayed its biggest ally EU.’ It took them this long to figure it out? I was warning EU about it since 2014. There is also noise in the EU about possible return anti-US sanctions, but do the brainwashed and sold-out EU elites have the courage and will to act?
Ultimately, it all depends on whether Germany will take the lead in the rebellion against the US, as only Germany pulls enough wight. I can tell you that Merkel won’t — she is too far gone. And this is why I have predicted since 2016 that Merkel would lose her election in the autumn of 2017!
The only hope is that the newly elected chancellor will be less sold-out and a little more courageous. However, the prognosis is not very good, despite the fact that German and European companies will suffer huge losses and for some the inability to benefit from Nord Stream 2 will be a kiss of death. When I say ‘for some,’ I mean not just companies, but whole countries. Austria and Hungary are very worried because for them Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream are the only possibility to ensure a secure gas supply for years to come.
Speaking of US lap dogs and French poodles! The moment US Congress passed anti-Russian sanctions, France withdrew its 2 bln euro investment in Nord Stream 2.
Remember the first round of anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and how France was forced by US to forfeit its delivery of the Navy carrier it had built for Russia? A billion+ project was literally thrown away. Russia got its money back through court, and although some sort of reduced deal was made to sell the ship to a third party, France lost both money and business reputation as a result. After that, India pulled out of lucrative deals with France.
This time, France decided not to wait and withdrew its Nord Stream 2 investment even before Trump signed the new anti-Russian sanctions.
The reason many European countries are worried is Russia’s 2016 announcement that Ukraine transit will be discontinued permanently as soon as the present transit contract expires on January 1, 2019. After that, Russia plans to let the Soviet-built pipe running through Ukraine to rot out unused. This would take the blackmail leverage away from Kiev: it won’t be able to blackmail either Moscow or EU, using its gas transiter status.
However, this announcement by Russia does a lot more. It also ensures that after January 1, 2019 USA loses all leverage over Russia and EU from the side of Ukraine. As I pointed out before, the fascist Kiev junta, and by extension, the occupied by them Ukraine, is used as a ram against Russia. But it’s also used as a blackmail tool against Europe/EU, and especially Germany. But not only Germany; many countries are feeling the pinch, including Austria, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia and Czechia, to name a few.
USA cannot afford this poison anti-Russian thorn it has created to be rendered useless. This is why Nord Stream 2 has to be sabotaged at all cost.
Many experts have said that the reason US wants to sabotage Nord Stream 2 is because USA wants to squeeze Russia out European market in order to sell their own fracking LNG gas to Europe. That’s just silly. Europeans aren’t that stupid and they know how to count their money. US fracking gas will be 3-4 times more expensive than Russia gas. It’s only Poland and the Baltics that could consider such ripoff to be a good deal. Russia doesn’t care about either Poland or Baltics, but Russia does care about lucrative business with the EU, and would like to keep EU markets, if at all possible.
The true reason for the new US sanctions is geopolitical, not economic. Even ‘Washington dreamers’ aren’t stupid enough to think EU will buy their gas at such prices and before infrastructure is even built. I spoke about this when Ukraine coup and anti-Russian sanctions began in 2014, and we are back to this yet again. What US is after is three things:
- Sabotage and keep down Russia – The Great Balancer as much as possible, preventing Russia’s normal live and steady development, if it’s not possible to annihilate Russia altogether.
- Sabotage and weaken Europe / EU as much as possible, as USA’s main technological competitor. But it goes further than that: a weaker Europe is a more subservient and less sovereign Europe. US is desperately clinging to the old 20th century model, under which weakened by WWII Europe was completely under US and did what the big boss said. US wants to keep that status quo, which is slowly slipping away, due to the Great Earth Shift.
- Keep Ukraine on life support, also completely subservient to the US, as a poison thorn in Russia’s side. This thorn can be activated at any moment to cause pain for Russia, but if need be, it can also be turned against the EU. US is desperate to keep Ukraine as that very important poison thorn. If Russian gas transit through Ukraine stops, then the role of Ukraine as anti-Russia on Russian borders strongly diminishes, until US has to abandon ‘the project Ukraine’ altogether. Trump has talked about slowly disengaging from Ukraine, but his surroundings and Congress won’t let him. The likes of McCain and Pence, and just about everyone else, will make him toe the line. The goal here is not to support Ukraine — they could care less about the people of Ukraine suffering and dying. The only use for Ukraine, from those dark entities’ perspective, is to use it as a poison pill, or as a ram against Russia and Europe. This is why they will support Ukraine till the last possibility.
Therefore, the main goal of the new anti-Russian sanctions is to slow down as much as possible the Nord Stream 2 construction, with the ultimate goal of weakening both Russia and EU.
In conclusion, please recall my 2014 prediction, which may come true, after all. As soon as the EU adopted first anti-Russian sanctions, I predicted that if Russia feels restricted by the West in any way, off to the East Russia goes. I said that Russia would quickly switch her focus to Asia and China. That’s exactly what happened: Russia and China became tighter than ever; various Asian and Middle Eastern countries beg for an increased Russian presence. (Read: Great Balancer Theory in Action! Iraq Requests Russia’s Military/Political Presence to Rebalance Region and World).
In the same set of 2014 predictions, I also said that as a result of sanctions EU may in several years time lose Russia as gas supplier and begin experiencing gas shortages. Today, July 31, 2017 Russia is preparing Plan B, in case EU caves in to US sanctions. Russian Plan B implies switching to alternative markets and alternative ways of gas delivery, which can cause serious gas shortages in certain EU countries, starting with Germany.
Let’s see if Germany and Europe in general have enough common sense and any sense of self-preservation left to act before it’s too late.

LADA RAY DEEP INTEL: Catastrophic Population Loss. Why Ukrainians stampede into Poland as EU visa-free begins
Stampede to get out of Ukraine and into Poland! The video below is self-explanatory. This is happening on the border between Ukraine and Poland, the moment 90-day visa-free regime (Ukrainian/Russian: ‘bezviz’ = ‘without visa’) between EU and Ukraine comes into effect. The voice behind the camera speaks in Ukrainian: “Look, Mr. Poroshenko, this is what our Euro-integration looks like.”
As I explained since 2014, after the Kiev junta and ukro-nazis came to power, what little talent, brains and active population was still left in Ukraine, has been leaving. Millions moved to Russia. Anywhere between 7 and 8 million either work and live in Russia or have received Russian citizenship between 1991 and 2017. At least 1.5-2 million became refugees in Russia after Poroshenko junta came to power. Up to 3-4 million also left to the EU and US. This process greatly intensified after 2014 Kiev Maidan.
Poroshenko made a grand production, turned into a dog-and-pony show, of the simple 90-day visa free tourist travel allowed by the EU as of June 2017, portraying it as his huge victory and great achievement of Maidan. He and his cronies tout visa-free with the EU as a demonstration that “Ukraine is rejoining Europe, and finally severing all ties with Russia.” “We are finally getting away from the unwashed Russia and rejoining the civilized Europe, Europe, which we, Ukrainians long ago founded,” proclaimed Poroshenko from the podium in Kiev, where thousands of students and state workers were herded, dressed in same T-shirts with EU flag and waiving mini-EU flags they were handed out.
And no, I didn’t mistranslate what Poroshenko said about ‘Ukrainians founding Europe’ — believe it or not, this is what new Ukrainian history books teach. They also teach that there were ancient Ukrs, forefathers of today’s Ukrainians, who had absolutely nothing to do with Russians, and that these ancient Ukrs dug out a giant hole in the ground, which we now know as… the BLACK SEA.
At the same event drunk Poroshenko said ‘goodbye forever’ to Russia over 3 times, returning to the issue of that mean ex called Russia over and over, while repeatedly quoting great Russian poets — in Russian. All this to the pre-rehearsed clapping of the herded-in sheeple, dressed in EU T-s and waving EU flags. Many videos of the above ‘event’ have been posted on YouTube, and there is no other way to describe it other than pathetic. Here’s one such video. The title reads: Kiev authorities tout visa-free with EU as panacea against all problems experienced by Ukraine:
If based on the above you think that a bizarre and lethal collective madness took a firm hold of Ukraine, you are not far from the truth.
It has been noted by the majority of Ukrainian analysts that the vast majority of Ukrainians cannot afford to travel as tourists to the EU on their measly incomes. This has been said even by those who have been initially pro-Maidan, but who now finally are beginning to notice that something went terribly wrong. The only real value of the EU visa-free travel is to pretend you are a tourist, but use your 90 days to latch on to a job so you could remain permanently.
As you see on the video, the crowd is crossing to Poland on foot – to save money. They probably have low-paying jobs, such as agriculture, taking care of the elderly and working as janitors, awaiting them on the other side. Polish slave-drivers and menial-jobs brokers are eager to get their hands on this new wave of slave labor. While these will work in Poland’s menial jobs, Poles are free to go to Western Europe, where they’ll do the same, but for a lot more money.
Some Ukrainians, who have better prospects, better education or who are younger and bolder, may leave by train or bus to Central and Western Europe. Therefore, the remainder of the most able-bodied, active, highest Chi and best skilled population is leaving Ukraine at even a faster rate than ever before.
Since 1992 when Ukraine first acquired independence after the collapse of the USSR, and without a major war it lost a huge chunk of the population. The data of 1993 registered the population of Ukraine as 54 million. As you’ll see below, the new data suggests the population of Ukraine now shrunk by more than half!
Due to the catastrophic loss of the population the new census has been a taboo. In today’s fascist Ukraine it is literally forbidden to research and voice out the truth about the population loss. The official numbers are grossly overstated and bluntly falsified.
Recently, the last remaining in Ukraine decent economists, such as bezviz, leader of the outlawed and prosecuted Progressive Socialist Party (+ a few others), have calculated the true state of events. They based their data on the consumption of bread – traditionally an important staple in Russian and Ukrainian diet, as well that of the nearby Moldova.
Bread, note Vitrenko and others, is so inexpensive and such a big staple, that when people cannot afford anything else, they’ll still buy bread. Other data, such as alcohol, meat, or fruit consumption is unreliable as people can use their gardens, bootleg illegal alcohol, etc., when they become poorer. But very few will bake their own bread as it requires a large usage of natural gas and electricity — both very expensive and in short supply in today’s Ukraine. Therefore, people would still buy bread in stores due to its relative low-cost and good quality.
Since Russian bread consumption per capita is known and it stands around 42 kilos per capita per year, based on that it is easy to calculate how much bread would be consumed in the very similar Ukrainian culture. In fact, notes Vitrenko, Russian bread consumption per capita should be lower than Ukrainian, as Russians make 4 times more money per capita and can afford a large variety of foods.
**I’ll add to this that Russians have been living a much more satisfied and healthy lifestyles than Ukrainians, which also lowers bread consumption.
Yet, the official data puts bread consumption in Ukraine at 24 kilos per capita per year. This is based on the government’s official population count of 42 million. The official Kiev explains this discrepancy by saying that Ukrainians buy less and bake more. However, as I pointed out above, it is impossible for the majority as the gas and electricity are unaffordably expensive.
And then the question is: if Ukrainians eat a lot less bread, a lot less meat and fruit, drink a lot less alcohol per capita compared to 2013 — then what do they consume? Is, as a result of the 2014 Kiev coup, Ukraine then starving in a self-inflicted golodomor (holodomor)?
To set the record straight, instead of the falsified official Ukrainian data of 24 kilos per capita, Vitrenko and other economists used Russian bread consumption base number of 42 kilos per capita per year.
**I should mention that Kiev still counts the population of Crimea and LDPR as their own. In other words, they bomb Donbass and threaten to invade Crimea / sabotage its economy, yet they count them as parts of Ukraine. Crimean population is 2.3 million and LDPR’s is about 3.6 million. Altogether — minus 5.9 million for Ukraine.
Having subtracted Crimea and LDPR populations, and based on the bread consumption per capita, Vitrenko and others have arrived at 25-26 million people remaining in Ukraine. This is down from 54 million in 1993 — without WWIII! This is the loss of over 1/2 of the entire population!
Incidentally, please recall that I have been predicting this catastrophic outcome since 2014! My personal estimate for the remaining Ukrainian population has been 28-30 million. In other words, pretty close to Vitrenko’s numbers.
Another extremely disturbing moment: per Vitrenko’s calculations out of the total 28-29 million lost, 13 million is a pure population contraction. This is the number of people who simply died: in other words, the expedited by hardship death ratio outweighs birth ratio to such catastrophic degree! This is not golodomor — this is simply mor (Rus/Ukr word for mass extinction).
Poroshenko and his cronies must be totally dumb, you may say. Instead of making life in Ukraine better for ordinary people so they would want to remain and build a life for themselves in their own country, they open the floodgates, basically telling people to run to the EU.
Poroshenko is not exactly dumb. He is smart enough to hang on to power all this time, manipulating his Western sponsors and various ukro-nazi forces. And he is smart enough to multiply his fortune more than 7-fold since 2014, while his country is dying.
In fact, Poroshenko is two things in one wrapper:
1. Oligarch who is sucking the last remaining juices out of Ukraine, using his privileged power position as president. Bezviz (visa-free to the EU) is one of Poroshenko’s populist moves to get elected for the next term, despite his catastrophically low approval rating. Premature elections may be scheduled in Ukraine as early as October 2017, ahead of normal schedule. Poroshenko knows he can only continue robbing his country blind, getting fat of the people’s tragedy, if he remains in power.
Recall what I said in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 3 OLIGARCH WARS – ever since the Kiev Maidan 2014, all Ukraine oligarchs lost money and some are near, or in, bankruptcy. All, except Poroshenko.
2. Poroshenko is US Deep State / globalist cabal agent, who does what he is told. He takes orders directly from the US – ok, maybe also a few from Germany/EU. If you think something has changed since Trump was elected — think again.
If you think I am just saying that — you know I never do. My intel tells me the exact numbers: there are between 800 and 900 US advisers pulling the strings in Kiev and whispering stuff into Poroshenko’s ear, including CIA, military, economic, political, media, PR and cultural.
According to my local Kiev intel, there also are — very sadly — Bulgarian advisers. This seems to be a newer addition, just showing how sold out the Bulgarian government really is. My conclusion is that Bulgarian advisers are sent to Kiev by their US bosses for the same reason Ukraine had to be subverted: to deepen and enlarge the rift between Russia and those countries that are closest to her culturally. In the past 3 years there have been ongoing protests and discontent in Bulgaria about NATO bases and US presence, while Russian business and tourism left. There has been an aspiration in Bulgaria to get back closer to Russia. The population of Bulgaria is being gradually remolded to forget its history, roots and Slavic cultural affinities — in order to reorient it slowly but surely towards the West.
The same process is happening in the small Balkans countries, such as Montenegro and FYRO Macedonia. The goal in all cases is to push out any naturally occurring cultural closeness to Russia and Russian influence, replacing it with everything Western.
Ukraine is the biggest victim of the yang aggressive West. I explain my Great Earth Shift — Great Balancer Theory and discuss how the yang West operates and how Russia the Great Balancer is now struggling to rebalance the world in new EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 2 INVERTED COLLAPSE.
But not all is sad and depressing. We have a huge and bold breakthrough in Moldova, which is gradually turning back to its roots, although the struggle will continue for some time. The new President of Moldova Igor Dodon has made a big splash by explaining during St. Petersburg Economic Forum how the West tried to subvert and enslave his country. More on that soon – stay tuned!
I had a whole EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8 BLACK SEA GAMBIT dedicated to Moldova, Pridnestrovie and northern Black Sea/Odessa region. In that report I predicted that ‘Moldova would be in a state of UNEASY AND DELICATE EQUILIBRIUM between pro-Romania / pro-EU forces vs. pro-Russian forces until at least 2017.’ This is exactly what we are seeing happen! If you have an interest in the region, do check out this very thorough and unusual report! Info you’ll find there you won’t find anywhere else — even less so in English!

It wasn’t my first choice to bring up such subject before the weekend. But Macedonia is boiling over. I believe important and volatile events are taking place in the countries that used to be parts of the former Yugoslavia, and people should know about them. My forecast is that the situation in the Balkans will continue heating up.
There are objective reasons for that: 1. A large number of people in the former Yugoslavia feel duped and they want to right the historic wrongs that were forced on them by the West; 2. The Balkans have historically been a very volatile and controversial region; it’ll continue being so during this Earth Shift.
The Balkans and former Yugoslavia are usually overlooked, silenced or completely misrepresented in the West; therefore I feel the need to explain what is happening.
A did a video about attempted color revolution in Macedonia – see more at the bottom. It took place (oh, surprise!) when then president of Macedonia Gruevski was visiting Russia and talking cooperation with Putin. The driving force of the color revolution was the Muslim Albanian minority. Notably, some of the color revolution participants resided in Macedonia, but, per reports, thousands of trained foreign agents were infiltrated through the Kosovo and Albania border. As a consequence, then president of Macedonia resigned – apparently after blackmail and life threats. New government was elected, which gave more seats to Albanians and fewer to the core ethnicities of Macedonians and Serbs, who are Orthodox Christians. The new government has been very subdued and ‘suddenly’ all talk of any cooperation with Russia stopped.
It has to be noted that Russia is a natural trade and cultural partner for Macedonia, as well as neighboring Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and other countries of the region. There is profound and well-cherished cultural, linguistic and religious closeness. (As a side note: remember, I did a couple of articles on FT about Bulgaria and Slovenia and how they feel about Russia). There is a strong mutual affinity between Russia and all of these countries. Same goes for Greece and Cyprus. The only problem, Russia does not share a border with the Balkans region.
Because there is such mutual affinity and strong desire to be closer to Russia, the West (US/EU) has made it its mission to sabotage any such attempts and has done absolutely everything in their power to prevent meaningful and productive relations between Russia and the Balkans. But the pull remains strong. Therefore, US/EU continue sabotaging it every step of the way.
***Some corrections to the map of the Balkans above – the map was found on the internet. Slovenia was also a part of Yugoslavia, it is technically a part of the Balkans, and although Catholic, certainly an integral part of the South-Slavic world. Slovenia’s break-up with Serbia in the ’90s was the only peaceful and orderly, except Macedonia. Also, Greece and the European part of Turkey are part of the Balkans.
Macedonia borders both Albania and the illegally torn from Serbia Kosovo. Kosovo is a historic, ancestral Serbian land. However, in the past 50-100 years or so, slowly, more and more Albanians seeped across the border and settled in Kosovo, until they constituted a large minority, and after having unseated most native Serbs, a majority. This allowed Albanians to overtake Kosovo and claim it as their land.
Kosovo Albanians have been used in this conflict as patsies and as a thorn in Serbia’s side (much like today’s ukro-nazi Ukraine has been designed to be a thorn in Russia’s side). By extension, the Kosovo terrorism threat and instability also hurts Macedonia and Montenegro. Every time either of the three former Yogoslav remnants tries to ‘misbehave’ such as get closer to Russia, the strings are pulled and a violent coup, color revolution, civil war, economic/political blackmail and threats against leaders take place.
The driving force behind Kosovo being torn from Serbia and recognized as independent state were Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton. Along with them – the usual suspects, such as senator McCain and the majority of both democrats and republicans in the USA. EU wasn’t far behind. In fact, everything was done by the collective West to create permanent hostility and embed a profoundly unresolved conflict in the region. All this was necessary to weaken Serbia, and by extension, Russia.
During the Yugoslav wars of the ’90s, taking advantage of the fact that Russia was at her weakest and Serbia committed a lot of errors, EU and US broke up Yugoslavia, but didn’t stop at that. They wanted to break up what was left of core Serbia as well. They largely succeeded: first the war crimes committed against Serbs were silenced and Serbian government and population were vilified. Then Kosovo was declared an independent state, immediately recognized by EU and US, but still unrecognized by many countries, including Russia and Serbia. Later in 2006, Chernogoria (Montenegro) was also torn away from the weakened Serbia.
Macedonia, one of the fall-out tiny republics formed in 1993 as a result of the breakup of Yugoslavia and the dismemberment of Serbia, is ethnically, linguistically and culturally an Orthodox, Slavic country, very close to both Serbs and Bulgarians.
We are now observing what happens to a small place such as Macedonia, which isn’t designed to function as a separate state. Every small piece torn from the whole weakens the whole along with all of the breakaway parts. Macedonians, who were lured away from Serbia by the promise of a wonderful life as part of the EU (which, incidentally, never happened) are now reaping the consequences of a bad decision.
In the past 20-30 years the Albanian minority in the country grew from single digits to 25-30 percent. When this minority became large enough, it began demanding more and more political power. Lately, the Albanian minority demanded the post of the head of the government. The current president, whose last name is Ivanov (can’t get any more Russian/Slavic) refused to cave in to Albanians’ pressure.
You may ask, what pressure if they are a minority? The problem is, as I explained above, Albanians enjoy a wholesale support of Brussels, Merkel and US. This emboldens them to demand more than they should. They know that the entire force of the EU/USA/NATO is behind them. This, sadly, yet again reminds me of the behavior of the Kiev junta, who go around EU and US demanding more sanctions, tough rhetoric against and public spanking of Russia – and they get indulged by both EU and US! Why? Because you’ve got to throw the bones to your chosen agents so they continue performing the dirty work.
Much like the Kiev junta against Russia, Crimea and Donbass, Kosovo and Albanians are used by the EU and US as a ram in the Balkans. Kosovo is a bonified terrorist state, specializing in drug, weapons and organ trafficking. Kosovo houses Camp Bondsteel, the USA’s largest military base abroad. It also specializes in training radical Islamists for terrorist acts in Europe.
Albanians, some of whom have fallen under the influence of radical Islamists and ISIS, are dangled in front of Macedonian and other governments in the region as a constant threat, should they make one wrong move. The sad fact is, Macedonians have become hostages in their own country.
The present crisis arose when ethnic Albanian was elected as speaker of the parliament, bypassing all legal procedures. It appears the votes were rigged and/or not counted. It was so obvious that the revolution began and people stormed the parliament. As of now, Macedonian parliament is occupied by protesters.
April 28, 2017, Macedonian parliament stormed by protesters:
The illegality of his election notwithstanding, EU rushed to recognize the Albanian speaker of Macedonian parliament; EU’s FM Federica Mogherini came out immediately in his support. The EU also expressed an ‘outrage’ over the protesters actions. Where was EU’s outrage when the 2014 bloody color revolution and parliament storming took place in Ukraine?
Macedonia has been boiling over for months. Similar mass protests have been happening in Montenegro. Serbia is also balancing on the brink. All of these small countries are being dragged into the EU and NATO, against the will of their populations. In fact, these countries present no value to either the EU or NATO. There is no big economy or strategic assets to be had there. The only asset is the natural affinity with Russia. In the minds of the dark forces ruling the West, this ancient affinity and this ancestral memory must be destroyed at all cost. What is happening in the Balkans is the mirror image of the Russia-Ukraine situation, albeit on a smaller scale.
The breakup of Yugoslavia was a terrible mistake. It’s much easier to destroy several small countries than one large. The people are discovering this the hard way. So far meek and subtle, I detect an underlying desire of some of the former Yugoslavia countries to re-unite. There is also a desire to be closer to Russia; after all, some in the Balkans consider Russia their Mother.

My deepest condolences to the city of St. Petersburg and all victims of the Sennaya Ploschad Station Metro Bombing!
The most important thing to understand is that this is NOT a coincidence! The immediate ‘verdict’ on the Internet and SM has been that’s it’s ISIS. But let’s look at the facts!
The facts are a stubborn thing. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Putin – Lukashenko St. Petersburg meeting and St. Pete Metro bombing are two links of the same chain!
And here’s the chain in question:
1. An ISIS terrorist would stick out like sore thumb in St. Petersburg. But ukro-nazis or SBU operatives from Kiev or Western Ukraine would blend right in. SBU is Ukraine intelligence, which has been trained, supervised and financed by CIA since at least 2014.
Since Putin has outplayed the Kiev junta on so many fronts, it is a lot more plausible that this is what happened. And it hits so much closer to home.
2. Multiple terror plots and subversive groups from Ukraine have been neutralized in Russia, including Crimea, Moscow and other regions, in 2016 and 2017.
One terror act unfortunately succeeded: the downing of TU-154 near Sochi, when all on board died, including 68 artists from the famed Alexandrov Red Army Choir and famous humanitarian Dr. Liza.
Certainly, there is also an escalation of Islamist terror activity in Chechnya and N. Caucasus. However, all of these events are related.
Related to the Russian terror plots are also the killings of LDPR commanders and leaders in 2016-17.
3. Russian ‘anti-corruption’ protests headed by Navalny took place just a week ago, the previous Sunday. One day prior to that, on Saturday, similar protests, with very similar slogans, took place in Belarus. Although organizers (often hidden) pretended that it was all spontaneous and unrelated to each other, there are very clear signs of coordination across borders. No doubt Russian and Belorussian protests were coordinated.
What is interesting is the incredibly high level of sophistication in the protests organization. The grounds were prepared for at least months prior. Lukashenko’s mistakes were skillfully used in Belarus. In Russia the dislike of PM Medvedev was equally skillfully used. The story of his supposed billions and Tuscany vineyards was invented and made into a documentary by Navalny, making sure it went viral on social media. Social media was in a very sophisticated way used to appeal to the young crowd and to entice young people to come out by the promise of big bucks and mischief with no repercussions.
To organize all this someone had to work for at least months, possibly longer. Most importantly, someone had to shell out quite a bit of cash, because protests and color revolutions don’t come cheap.
Participants of the Russian protests, very young people, some of whom were barely 16-17 years of age, were caught on camera (video was posted on YT) sharing how they must make sure they get arrested during the Sunday protest because those who get arrested will get $10 thousand Euros, plus legal help and possible trips to the West.
Other young delinquents were caught on camera having this dialogue:
‘Coming tomorrow to the protest?’
‘What’s it about?’
‘No idea, but it’s an opportunity to beat up cops.’
Who promised them this kind of payday for causing trouble? The usual suspects: Soros, Clinton Foundation, CIA. I would also include here UK, Poland, Germany and Brussels/EU. In what configuration – that’s a separate discussion. It’s roughly the same entities who have financed other color revolutions and mayhem globally.
The name of ex-oligarch Khodorkovsky has also surfaced in connection with the organization of these ‘protests’ (see this post’s comment section for intel from Nemo!). Khodorkovsky, of course, is a long-standing client of the CIA. I have followed Khodorkovsky for a long time, and as many of you know, he served as prototype for the character of the oligarch Konukovsky in my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. As I see it, Khodorkovsky lately also became a client of the CIA’s secret EU leg: the German intelligence (let’s be honest, that’s what the German intelligence has turned into).
4. Recent Eurovision scandal was supposed to be a humiliation for Russia, but it backfired. Kiev banned Russian participant Yulia Samoylova’s entry into the country, thus illegally banning her from participation in the Kiev Eurovision 2017. The scandal took a humiliating turn against Kiev: in response contest organizers threatened to ban Ukrainian participant from the contest taking place on her native soil, and possibly even moving the contest to another country.
Recent killing of ex-Russian Duma Deputy Voronenkov in Kiev is a provocation also directly related to all other events described here.
5. During 2016-2017 in Russia we have seen a large number of terror groups – some related to IS and Islamist terror cells and others related to Kiev – being apprehended. These are shown on Russian news almost weekly. Many terror acts were prevented. All in all, the actions of FSB have so far proven effective.
6. In the run-up to Belarus protests multiple terror plots and various wannabe terrorists were apprehended in Minsk and on the border. One of the attempted terror plots was almost bizarre: a Jeep carrying ingredients to mak explosives tried to break through the border from Ukrainian side. The Jeep was chased by law enforcement, but it managed to get pretty deep into Belorussian territory before most people inside were apprehended. One person managed to escape. How dangerous was the one who escaped? Were the others just patsies, meant to divert attention, while the only important person went free? What kind of explosives escaped with him and what was his ultimate destination?
The border between Russia and Belarus is very transparent. Recently Lukashenko announced a visa-free regime for 80 countries, without coordinating with Russia. This silly decision was a big part of the recent spat between Russia and Belarus.
Clearly, Belarus isn’t a high-profile target, but its value is in it being an inside track into Russia. Between Russia and Belarus there is no border; therefore, it is very easy for a determined terrorist group to infiltrate through Belarus.
7. Lukashenko blinks: Belarus has become a weak link in Eurasian stability and security system when Lukashenko recently initiated a conflict with Russia regarding power and gas pricing and sought to blackmail Russia by suggesting Belarus would re-orient towards the West and Middle East, distancing itself from Russia.
My diagnosis is that it’s largely a bluff by the starved for attention Lukashenko, who wants preferential treatment and who wants to milk Russia as much as possible. There is also a significant economic component in Lukashenko’s outburst: Belarus is cash poor and debt ridden and in need of a postponement of debt repayment. All this, coupled with the worsening economic situation and approaching elections makes Lukashenko nervous. After all, the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle’ was achieved on the account of Russia sharing practically free gas and other privileges with Belarus. Recently Russia began demanding that Lukashenko pays for at least some of the gas.
At the same time, I do not see Belarus drifting towards Ukraine scenario and Kiev-style Maidan any time soon, as I explained and predicted in ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? (WITH BONUS: LUKASHENKO’S BLUFF).
Regarding Lukashenko: his act gets old and tiring. He will paint himself into a corner soon. His days as president may be numbered. But the geo-chess master acts on his own time and when no one is expecting it. Putin’s move will come, but only when he’s ready.
More predictions on the future of Belarus and Lukashenko in my future book, THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
8. Russian Presidential Election cycle has begun. Everything that’s happening is a rehearsal and preparation in order to see if Russia can be destabilized enough to prevent Putin’s re-election. But they know it’s a very tall order. Therefore, the goal is at least to bring him into the next term as weakened as possible, with maximum number of discontented citizens. If Russia and Putin blink (which won’t happen) they also hope to begin a real color revolution and civil war in Russia, turn one half of the population against another, like in Ukraine, and destroy everything that has been re-built between 2000 and now. But as I said, this won’t happen.
This is a very old tried-and-true technique of divide and conquer, character assassination and sabotage. It was previously reserved for Russia, the arch-enemy of the West, and those countries the West wanted to subdue. But today, we are experiencing the Great Earth Shift when the old matrix is dissolving and the shoots of the new are trying to get through the concrete.
Today this technique is used just as much in the West by the same neo-liberal globalist cabal against those who do not toe the agenda. Examples are anti-globalists such as Trump in the US and French presidential candidates Marine Le Pen and François Fillon, who are being openly sabotaged. More in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER.
WHY PUTIN – LUKASHENKO MEETING IN ST. PETERSBURG COINCIDED WITH METRO BOMBING:
Putin meets with Lukashenko in St. Petersburg, 4/3/17:
By provoking multiple loud public scandals with Russia regarding gas and oil pricing, diminished oil quotas, loan repayments and open border dispute Lukashenko and his advisors were banking on the fact that Russia already has a huge problem with Ukraine. Therefore, they reasoned, Russia would not risk escalating this argument with Belarus, fearing a loss of an important partner. This calculation was naive at best, which was quickly demonstrated by the following events. Life promptly showed Lukashenko what happens when Russia withdraws support.
To be sure, both Russia and Belarus lose when they argue. The problem is Belarus and Lukashenko personally lose a lot more.
A similar scenario occurred to Turkey and Erdogan after the downing of the Russian Su-24 and Russia’s subsequent withdrawal of Erdogan’s support and all business with Turkey. Within the short several months, this weakened Turkey to such degree that Erdogan almost lost his life in the military coup and much of the Turkish economy dried up. For detailed analysis and predictions read ESR 13: ERDOGAN’S WAR.
Having gone too far in his spat with Russia, and also having made some serious mistakes internally, Lukashenko now has seen how shaky his position would be without the support of Russia. After Putin and Medvedev’s cold shoulder, after Belarus protests and a threat of being expelled from Eurasian Union, he had to quickly backtrack, humble down and sit down to talk with Putin.
The meeting place: St. Petersburg. The meeting time: Monday, April 3, 2017.
It is clear to me that a great deal of manipulation has gone into convincing Lukashenko to act as a provocateur in Russian-Belorussian relations. Also, a great deal of effort and international coordination went into organizing the aforementioned Russian and Belorussian protests. Much of YouTube, Twitter and various other SM outlets were deeply involved.
Specifically in Russia the average age of participants is highly suspect. What comes to mind when a crowd of 16-17 years-olds marches through Moscow center, stopping traffic and picking fights with cops, while chanting, ‘Putin (or Medvedev), where is our money?’ (This was an actual slogan of the Russian protests, as seen on TV. Others were even more silly and bizarre, some reminding painfully of the Kiev coup and Ukrainian Euro-Maidan.)
‘Putin (or Medvedev), where is our money?’ Greed is a determining factor. Whose money are they really after? Who really pays?
Make no mistake, no matter who sits in the White House or calls the shots in the EU, billions continue being spent on subverting the vulnerable among the young generations of Russians and Belarussians. After all, it seems to have worked in Ukraine; they hope it’ll work in Russia and Belarus.
These billions are being spent by the same parties as before, and in this regard, absolutely nothing has changed. These are same sources that subverted Ukraine, and that attempted unsuccessful color revolutions in Armenia and Kazakhstan. (See ESR9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN & Armenia).
This is pre-election year in Belarus. More importantly, this is pre-election year in Russia. The activation of destabilization attempts will continue.
The original grand plan, conceived many years ago, but implemented throughout the 90’s and 2000’s was to break apart Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. Part of the plant pertaining to Ukraine nearly succeeded due to Kiev Maidan.
But it proved much harder to break up Russia and Belarus. Yet even this could have succeeded due to Lukashenko’s mistakes. After Lukashenko’s public tantrum and threats to turn away from Russia towards the West, it was assumed that the breakup was underway. And it would have been, if not for Putin.
The attempt to break apart Russia and Belarus has a clear ultimate goal to weaken and disorient The Great Balancer. Russia, The Great Balancer, is presently rebalancing the severely lopsided world towards a better balance between physical/material/personal/self-serving energy on one hand and spiritual/collective/service-to-others energy on another. This is an attempt to stop this rebalancing, or at the very least, to slow it down.
Who benefits? Very simply: the collective West, the old neo-liberal globalist bankster, pero-dollar dominated system that made the West at large rich at the expense of others. To be sure, there are many new and healthy shoots in the West. They will eventually come through and bear fruit, but for now the old is still stronger.
Belarus is playing a very important role in the work of The Great Balancer; it is a part of the Great Balancer structure. Russia is weaker without Belarus, but Belarus cannot survive without Russia.
Has Lukashenko finally got it? After all elaborate and sophisticated preparations, after all indications that a rift between Russia and Belarus is taking place, suddenly, Lukashenko backpedals and Putin meets him in St. Petersburg. They announce that energy and border control disputes are being successfully resolved.
The terror act preceding or coinciding with this kind of meeting signifies a warning. This is a message for Putin, and by association, for Lukashenko. It is a threat issued to Russia, Belarus, and their leaders.
Make no mistake, a response will follow.
Incidentally, during the St. Pete meeting Putin said an interesting thing: Russia and Belarus are preparing a unified energy grid. This ultimately means that the two countries are getting closer, NOT further apart. This is the beginning of Putin’s response.
The game is afoot.

Ukraine has ‘celebrated’ its 3rd anniversary of the Kiev Maidan. Many were predicting and expecting Maidan 3.0 and the ousting of Poroshenko. And then Maidan 3.0 went puff.
Meanwhile, a week ago Ukraine radicals from ukro-nazi battalions and various fascist organizations blockaded the rail and auto roads between Donetsk-Lugansk People’s Republics and Ukraine. Their idea – very logical from the standpoint of the Maidan – is this: why does Ukraine continue buying coal from ‘separatists’ with whom Ukraine government says it is at war?
Of course, the violent ukro-nazis, most of whom are high school drop-outs and jailbirds, have no idea about logistics, economy and systemic thinking. Trouble is, the infrastructure of Ukraine was built during Soviet times as one whole system, where various parts support each other. If the high quality and plentiful coal stops arriving from Donbass, then dozens of metallurgical, machine-building and chemical plants elsewhere will shut down.
What will also shut down are the thermal energy plants running on coal, and there are lots of those in Ukraine due to the cheap and high quality coal supplied by Donbass. What will happen when power stations shut down in the middle of winter? What will happen to Ukrainian citizens, who are already hardly surviving, each winter being harder and harder?
Last year Ukraine tried to buy coal from S. Africa. With great pomp a shipload of coal was unloaded in Odessa, just to be found later that this particular – much more expensive – coal doesn’t burn well in power plants designed specifically for Donbass coal.
As of today, several important metallurgical and chemical plants had to shut down in E. Ukraine. Dozens of other plants are about to close down due to the lack of coal.
This means tens of thousands are about to lose their jobs.
Meanwhile, an emergency electric power economy regime has been announced in the country. Authorities warn that most towns and cities are down to 1 week or less in supplies of coal. Domino effect electricity shut-offs in Kiev and other major cities are being announced.
Multiply this by the following facts:
Ukraine’s other important sources of electricity, its aging nuclear power stations, are in bad condition, not being maintained properly. They are also being overloaded and worked beyond capacity to pick up the slack from the dying coal power plants. We all know what may happen in such cases: Chernobyl.
The now deceased head of Europe’s largest Zaporozhie Nuclear Power Plant was a whistleblower, who tried to deliver the truth about the sorry state of Ukraine’s nuclear energy. He also blew the whistle on the fact that Ukraine has been trying to replace compatible Russian parts and nuclear fuel, for which the Ukrainian nuclear plants were built, with the incompatible American parts and fuel. He warned of the potential catastrophe, which would make Chernobyl look like a child’s toy. Last year he suddenly died, supposedly due to health reasons…
The blockade of Donbass rail and auto roads is conducted by only a few dozen militants from the right sector and ukro-nazi battalions. But despite such measly numbers, there appears to be no force in the country, or beyond, that can control them or make them go away. The law in Ukraine died on the day the Kiev Maidan began.
Ukraine president Poroshenko has been ‘pleading’ with ukro-nazis to stop the blockade. Drunk on power and self-importance, they refused.
Here’s the problem. Since 2014 Poroshenko and Kiev junta have adamantly maintained that in Donbass they are fighting ‘against the entire might of the Russian Army.’ In reality, of course, Poroshenko and Kiev junta have been attacking the people of Donbass who have rejected the Russophobic ukro-nazi ideology, and who simply wanted to be left alone to live on their land, honoring their true history and speaking Russian language.
Suddenly, the same Kiev junta and same Poroshenko who keep demanding money from the EU and US, based on their assertion that Ukraine continues successfully deflecting the ‘brutal aggression of the entire Russian Army’ in Donbass, are unable to do anything with a few dozen ukro-nazi bullies, who are about to send what’s left of Ukraine into a stone age? Sound plausible?
Moreover, in the past day or two Poroshenko’s junta has violently dispersed in Kiev the beginnings of Maidan 3.0. They are capable of dispersing thousands in Kiev, yet the whole Ukrainian police, special forces and army, which they don’t mind using against civilians in Donbass, cannot reign in on a few dozen ukro-nazi railroad blockaders?
Note this interesting detail! While all this has been happening in Ukraine, Poroshenko tried just in case to escape to the USA, but he was told that he wasn’t invited yet. Still, as of today, Poroshenko is missing from Kiev and from the country – location unknown. Same goes for Kolomoysky, Avakov and other junta bosses. Faced with the possibility of Maidan 3.0 they prefer to spend time in the security of some obscure ‘offshore haven.’
Make no mistake, they’ll be back as soon as the storm wears out. And why would the storm wear out? Why the new Maidan isn’t possible? Why was it successful in 2014 to install Poroshenko and the junta, yet, why is it not working against Poroshenko?
Because the 2014 Maidan was wholeheartedly supported and financed by the West. The 2017 3.0 anti-Poroshenko Maidan is not supported by the West.
All of the world’s color revolutions, the majority of mayhem, and practically all ugly international wars have been perpetrated by the West. The West doesn’t invest in one = it doesn’t happen. Such is the simple math of the bitter truth.
Everyone knows Poroshenko is missing from the country, yet – NOTICE THIS IMPORTANT DETAIL! – no one’s trying to unseat him. During the 2014 Maidan the West claimed that ‘Yanukovich left Kiev,’ therefore he forfeit his presidency, and consequently, US and EU were right to support the temporary Kiev junta government appointed personally by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland.
So, should we assume there is no force in the country capable of dealing with a few dozen ‘idealistic’ ukro-nazis, blockading and blowing up railroads? It’s a lot more logical that they have been simply paid off. And make no mistake: no Euro-Maidan or revolution happens in Ukraine without protesters being handsomely paid.
Who pays them off to blockade Donbass coal:
1. Poroshenko himself – to topple rival oligarchs, such as in this case Renat Akhmetov, once ‘the richest man in Ukraine’ according to Forbes, and now virtually bankrupt. It is Akhmetov’s plants located in Eastern Ukraine that are being hit by shut-downs.
2. Kolomoysky, and hiding behind his back until the right moment, Yulia Timoshenko.
3. Foreign parties – we know who they are – who want to continue destroying Ukraine. This is a well-known strategy: they know that they will eventually have to give up Ukraine, therefore, they want to destroy it as much as possible so that Russia would have to spend as many resources as possible to eventually rebuild it.
Incidentally, the same strange inability to reign in on terrorists and criminals is observed all over Ukraine: the most famous example is the continuing blockade of Crimea by the fascist Crimean Tartar Mejlis in Kherson Oblast. The illegal Crimean Tartar battalion Asker and associated ukro-nazis have been raping, robbing, taking away land/businesses and killing local citizens, while Kiev authorities give them cover. This has been proven recently when a Ukraine army major tried to confiscate illegal arms from Isliamov’s Asker battalion in Kherson oblast. Isliamov is a wanted terrorist in Russia, who organized the blowing up of electric power lines to Crimea, leaving 2.5 million people without power in the winter. The Ukrainian major who tried to do his job was fired from his post; all illegal arms were returned to Isliamov’s Crimean Tartar battalion.
Last year a few dozen ukro-nazis blockaded roads in western Ukraine, extensively used for shipping between Russia and EU. Neither Ukraine nor EU would reign into them either, despite the fact that EU companies were suffering losses. The problem was solved only via redirecting all shipping traffic away from Ukraine. In the process, Ukraine suffered millions of dollars in annual loss of transit revenue.
The logic of these ukro-nazis and ‘Ukraine patriots’ is brilliant: who cares that my country is going down the drain, as long as I get handsomely paid for inflicting damage on others and as long as I harm Russia, destroy or sabotage as much as I can.
It is these destructive elements that the West bred, financed and supported in Ukraine for the past 25+ years, just so that they would help undermine Russia.
And another observation: much of the population of Ukraine has been crushed and scared to death after the Kiev Maidan armed thugs gained control of the country in the past 3 years. But the majority have been simply brainwashed. They turned out to be surprisingly easy to brainwash. In front of their very eyes their country is being raped and slowly killed by hordes of invaders: 1. ukro-nazis from Western Ukraine; 2. oligarchs, most of whom aren’t ethnically Ukrainians or Russians; 3. by the West. Meanwhile, the population at large isn’t protesting, watching how their country’s life is being slowly snuffed out by the forces of darkness.
Not all are overtly violent who are in agreement with Maidan and the junta. Some simply live in their own la la land. Take for example Ukrainian singer Ruslana, whose claim to fame is that she once won Eurovision contest – I believe, thanks to Russia giving her the top score of 12 points. Ruslana is now a rabidly Russophobic Ukraine ‘patriot.’ She is sort of ‘Madonna’ of Ukraine. Recently this semi-crazy diva went on TV, promoting alternative energy. It went like this: “We have to free ourselves from dependence on Russian (or Donbass) energy or gas. For example, I use my own windmill factory to generate all the power I need. It’s so easy – just build them on your property and you have free energy!”
All fine and good, but the cost of windmills on ‘Ruslana’s property’ turned out to be upward of $400,000. Average Ukrainian’s salary is $125 a month.
Mass protests took place all over South and East of Ukraine in 2014-2016. These protests were brutally and bloodily suppressed. So far, only the people of Crimea and parts of Donbass found enough courage and stamina to effectively counter the aggression and occupation by west-Ukraine ukro-nazis and foreign forces.
Some of Lada Ray 2014 predictions on Ukraine were:
- Only Russia – the sister nation – can control the dark element in Ukraine; and only Russia can rebuild Ukraine and help it prosper again.
- The West will drop Ukraine like a squeezed-out lemon when it realizes it cannot control the monster they created.
- Ukraine will turn back to Russia and away from the West by the end of 2018.
- But before that happens, Ukraine economy will be completely destroyed.
- People of Ukraine need to learn their lesson. They need to find inner courage and common sense to save themselves. At the very minimum they need to find enough energy to help Russia save them. So far they haven’t.
- I have voiced the next two predictions before, but I want to re-formulate them even more clearly for the future: Ukraine’s salvation from the abyss in which it’s falling is directly tied with two factors: the shift within, and the weakening of the USA and EU – the two entities that have been behind those who are sucking it dry.
- Simple as that: in the next decades US and EU will have to deal full-force with the bad karma they generated in abundance by destroying Ukraine and many other countries. US and EU should prepare to reap what they’ve sown.

Lada Ray Webinar on Trump:
Impartial, non-partisan truth and spot-on predictions
Donald Trump is very important for Earth Shift and next several years of geopolitical development
It appears I forgot to mention something important about the upcoming Lada Ray Webinar 1 on Trump. The thing is that many of my followers should know, but perhaps some forget, that I am a completely non-partisan, impartial and detached observer.
I look at the events not from the perspective of whether republicans or democrats should win, whether the left or right agenda is better. I also don’t get into most of the petty arguments out there, unless I have to.
My view is that of whether a person, country, or event benefits the life on our planet, whether it supports positive human development, advancement of the Earth Shift and consciousness, or not. All my work, including the books and webinars I plan for this year and next, is about that.
This is the perspective from which we will be approaching the upcoming Webinar 1 on Trump. In this webinar I promised to tell you the entire truth of how I foresee the development of the Trump presidency, how it will impact the world and every one of us. I also promised to reveal my predictions and intel I wouldn’t normally share with the public in general.
If you have followed me even for a short while, you know how right on the money my predictions are. Therefore, you should know how valuable everything I’m about to share with you can be.
Donald Trump is very important to the ongoing Earth Shift and geopolitical development in the next several years. However, if you want an ecstatic Trump fan club, this is not the place.
But if you really want to know what the future holds, if you want the whole truth and nothing but the truth – with all its positives and negatives – Lada Ray Webinar is the place to be.
P.S. Incidentally, big developments during yesterday’s Putin’s visit to Hungary. Also, lots of huge developments in Ukraine, Moldova and Pridnestrovie. Some of this I’ll mention in the Trump webinar and some will be brought up in the upcoming webinar on Ukraine and Eastern Europe!
One day left to the first Lada Ray Webinar:
How Trump presidency will impact the world: Lada Ray Exclusive Trendcast & Predictions for the next 2-3 years. USA, Russia, EU, Ukraine, Syria, Middle East, Eurasia and more will be discussed. The webinar will include a discussion of the secret Kissinger plan, how this plan confirms the ongoing Earth Shift, and how Lada sees its outcome.
We have over 80 people, with only a few spots left – not bad for the first event!
Thank you to all those who signed up!
See you all at: 4pm EST tomorrow, Saturday, February 4, 2017!
Please make sure you follow the log-in link included in your official invitation!

If you want to know Lada Ray’s unique take on Russian Elections, Putin, United Russia, a conspiracy that was planned after elections and how it failed; if you want Lada’s views on latest global events listed below, please order the complete ESR11 HERE.
In FREE Part 1 we discuss the following:
Latest events in Syria, including the US coalition bombing of Syrian army positions and killing over 60 people, as well as Kerry/Lavrov Syria talks and UN clashes. Lada will give her prediction on whether there will ever be a direct military confrontation between US and Russia.
Lada Ray’s original take on what is going on among US elites (Kerry, State Dept, Pentagon, CIA, FBI), why there is so much flip-flopping and inconsistency and how all this is connected with the developing Earth Shift and the crash of the US Empire.
Ukraine (what can we do without it!). How Russian voters were prevented from voting in Ukraine and the ‘funny way’ in which it backfired. What is happening with gas and coal and how Ukraine will survive this winter. How long has Poroshenko got.
Contrast with Ukraine: how Russian Elections took place in Germany and New Zealand.
Breakaway Pridnestrovie (aka, PMR, Transnistria) announces its intent to join Russia. Can the Crimea precedent help and how PMR is different from Crimea or Donbass. How Russian Elections took place in Pridnestrovie. PMR president Evgeny Shevchuk and upcoming elections. The new oligarchic structure financed from abroad: Sheriff. Why Pridnestrovie citizens dream about being re-united with Russia: how Shevchuk is expected to win running on the platform of re-unification with Russia and cracking down on Sheriff.
(I am intimately familiar with Pridnestrovie. For all about Pridnestrovie, its history, people, culture and politics read ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT and watch my free video report on Lada Ray YT Channel: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)

PART 2 is all about Russian Elections 2016, including the overview of main 4 parties, plus 10 other small parties (altogether Russia has 77 registered parties), their platforms and how United Russia won back the constitutional majority. We’ll talk in detail how more and more women are elected, why pro-West ‘neo-liberal’ parties received almost zero votes. How the 4 main parties fared and why.
Elections percentages, constitutional majority and seat distribution. Kadyrov and Chechnya – why turnout of 84% was the highest there.
How these Duma Elections will influence 2018 Russian Presidential Elections. Why they are crucial for Russia’s turnaround and future development (anticipated firings among pro-West parts of Russian Govt; Constitution reform; nationalization of the Ruble).
Rolling back history: lessons of the 2011 Russian Duma Elections, the near coup on Bolotnaya Square and how Russian society got mobilized around Putin. Putin’s surprise win in 2012 (not so surprising: if you recall, back in 2011-12 I predicted the exact percentage with which he won). How anti-Putin Bolotnaya protest electrified pro-Putin patriotic movement in Russia: 300,000 Poklonnaya Gora rally (Starikov, Fedorov). Why there is presently a fight between patriotic parties and organizations.
How United Russia learned its lesson and what it did differently this time.
Will Russian Duma Elections influence US Presidential Elections and how?
Last but not least! The explosive ADDENDUM will talk about the recent arrest of the police colonel Zakharchenko (not to be confused with the Head of DNR Alexandr Zakharchenko) on charges of corruption. In his possession was found a stash of 8bln rubles and 1.5 tons (in weight) of US dollars. What is not being said and what this colossal cash stash was planned to be used for. What was being planned after September 18, Ukraine junta and USA’s role in that failed plan.

SILK ROAD-ISLAMISM-MAIDAN-EURASIAN UNION
Where Uzbekistan falls on the new Eurasian map (2014)
Map of the Soviet Union: Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) is in purple, below Kazakh SSR
1. Uzbek SSR flag with Uzbek SSR crest superimposed (both based on the USSR flag and crest)
2. Today’s Uzbekistan flag (with decided influences from Muslim and US traditions)
Uzbekistan was always famous for its cotton and its food: cotton harvest
Famed Uzbek Plov, a very delicious dish, consisting of rice, meat, garlic and spices; carrots, raisins or other dried fruit could be added as well.
Vibrant Central Asian / Uzbek bazaars haven’t changed much since the times of the old Silk Road: local breads, vegetables and spices are sold.
The only difference: now women sell produce, while in medieval times only men were allowed to trade. A woman’s place was at home, cooking, cleaning, rearing children, while her face and body had to stay hidden at all times underneath a burqa.
It has to be strongly emphasized that this was a life of a woman in Central Asia before the 1917 Russian Revolution.
With all its shortcomings, the Revolution and new ideas by Lenin brought a true social revolution to backwards areas like Central Asia. Women suddenly could go to school, vote, gain professions and work outside of home.
Per Muslim custom, only males are allowed at President Karimov’s lavish funeral ceremony inside the historic Samarkand cemetery
PM Dmitry Medvedev, who has represented Russia at the late President Karimov’s funeral, consoles Karimov’s wife Tatyana Karimova and younger daughter Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva.
Notice that Karimov’s wife is Russian, and his daughter is married to a Russian, which we can tell by their names. Like in Kazakhstan, despite 25 years of ‘independence’ and attempts to distance away from Russia, national elites remain Russian-speaking and largely connected to Russia via education, culture, wives and various relatives.
The USSR invested untold billions into meticulously restoring and preserving the historic Silk Road city of Samarkand and another gem, Bukhara. If not for Soviet restoration and preservation, today little would be left of both.
Today, Samarkand is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

“Armenia is now in the Eurasian Economic Union”
January 2, the Treaty on Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union EAEU came into force. Armenia became the fourth full-fledged Member-State of the Eurasian Economic Union together with Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia.
By this Treaty Armenia has become a part of the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union, signed by the Presidents of the EAEU Member-States – Alexander Lukashenko, Nursultan Nazarbayev and Vladimir Putin on May 29, 2014 in Astana, as well as other international treaties forming the EAEU legal framework. From now on, Armenia undertakes corresponding obligations, and therewith gets access to the EAEU single market with 170 million citizens.
By joining the Eurasian Economic Union, the state gets fully involved into implementation of the Eurasian project aimed, on the one hand, at forming of four freedoms: free movement of goods, services, capital and labour force. On the other hand, – at creation of one of the key economic centers of evolving architecture of the multipolar world.
The fourth partner expects a number of positive effects form integration. Among the key ones there are an increase of goods turnover due to elimination of barriers and minimization of administrative expenses,an increase of mobility of labour force due to introduction to the single labour market, an increase of stability of economic development due to reduction of economic isolation effect, development of infrastructure projects, participation in drawing up of the agenda using the mechanisms of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The Treaty on accession provides for full involvement of Armenia’s representatives into the activities of the EAEU governance. Upon entry of the Treaty into force the President of Armenia becomes a full-fledged Member of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, and the Prime Minister becomes a Member of Intergovernmental Council; the full-fledged representative joins the Eurasian Economic Commission. Armenia will be represented by three Board Members in the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission, as well as other EAEU Member-States.”
Lada’s notes: As of June 11, 2016, EAEU has 5 full members: following Armenia, Kyrgyzstan joined EAEU in May 2015. Tajikistan is next in line.

2015 Armenian ‘Electric Maidan’
Between 2014 and 2016 there were 4 very serious attempts to ignite color revolution, instigate regime change and put a rift between Armenia & Russia/EAEU.
Remember: the mega-goal, the primary target and the biggest prize is ALWAYS RUSSIA!
US cannot allow the very possibility of a multipolar world!
So, on January 2, 2015 Armenia officially became a member of Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). Before that happened and ever since, there have been relentless attempts to destabilize Armenia by all means possible.
I have been warning about it since 2014.
Following a successful subversion of Ukraine by the US, all post-Soviet space leaders, as well as many other heads of state ,have been on high alert, knowing they could easily be next, and their country could be plunged into chaos and bloody war just as easily.
Armenia, due to its isolated and vulnerable geographic position, weak leadership and poor economic situation was the primary target. Since then, four very serious attempts to introduce color revolution, war and chaos were made in Armenia.
Chronologically from 2014 to 2016, these were:
1. A false flag ‘killing by a Russian soldier’ from the nearby military base of an Armenian family: needed to compel Armenia to boot out the Russian base – the only protection Armenia has against Turkey, its eternal enemy.
2. The so-called “Electric Maidan,” during which electric rates hikes were blamed on Russians (who else?), and where Ukrainian nationalists tried to infiltrate protests.
3. Sudden change of Armenia’s political structure from presidential republic to parliamentary republic, thus introducing additional instability.
4. The latest: April 2016 4-day Nagorno-Karabakh war between Armenia and Azerbaijan – quelled almost immediately due to Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s prompt peacemaking efforts, resulting in renewed truce. This attempt aimed at destabilizing both Armenia and Azerbaijan, and at creating an additional rift between Russia and Armenia. Further, it was designed to push Azerbaijan away from Russia and closer to Turkey and radical Islamism.
And what an interesting coincidence! The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict escalation happened DURING the visit of both heads of Armenia and Azerbaijan to the USA, where they attended Nuclear Summit hosted by Barack Obama!
Incidentally, did you know that 160,000 Armenians reside in Los Angeles, USA (the largest Armenian enclave in North America) and that George Clooney is Armenian?

Due to the hot news from Kazakhstan and other EAEU/post-Soviet areas,
I am releasing a new surprise Earth Shift Report 9!
6/11/2016 update: IT’S HERE! CLICK LINK TO WATCH NOW!
(PLUS! Color revolutions & destabilization alerts for Caucasus & Central Asia: intel from Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan)
Everything you ever wanted to know about the color revolution attempt in Astana, Almaty and other Kazakh cities on May 21, 2016. I’ve dubbed this attempted Kazakh Maidan: ‘The Agricultural Color Revolution.’ Find out why and how China is involved, but most importantly, how Ukraine, Turkey, ISIS, Soros, NGOs and US are involved.
We will also talk about the latest Aktobe terror attacks on June 5, 2016 and why specifically Aktobe was targeted. Who and why is sending a chilling message? Who’s pulling the strings and who’s the REAL target? How all this affects Russia and EAEU?
Kazakhstan is still on high alert and many shops and other organizations remain closed after the shocking attacks of June 5 in this country, previously considered one of the world’s most stable.
As usual, we’ll look at both: on the ground, local Kazakh intel, and the all-Eurasian and global situation.
For the first time in this report I will reveal certain crucial things about Russia and Kazakhstan’s role in Eurasia. This is brand new material, which is part of my EARTH SHIFT Theory, and of which I’ve never talked previously!
