Dear readers, you all know that my mission is to illuminate and reveal the truth, as well as to restore balance in our severely confused and imbalanced world. Sometimes we have good intentions, but our enthusiasm (and our stereotypes, based on our often limited experience and understanding of the situation) may show it to us in a distorted mirror.
For example, as the post below will demonstrate, the situation with police isn’t necessarily the same, or could even be drastically different, in Ukraine as opposed to the USA.
I have received this email from one of my supporters. I’ll keep it anonymous, however, I am sure he will approve of me publishing his nameless comment because I know he is after the real, honest truth as much as I am.
‘Thought this was astoundingly brilliant for these Ukrainian ladies to use mirrors like this. I felt you’d like to see this.
Images (click on link above for more):
Now, let me begin by saying that there is a falsehood I detect in these images from the get-go. I think those who published this article either don’t know the background or seek to manipulate it for their own agenda, either knowingly or unknowingly.
Here’s why: they didn’t tell the truth about the origin of these images, and for a good reason, because, as I suspect, they may have been taken during violent attack on the Russian embassy during yesterday’s elections. This is illegal by international law and in a normal world it would have caused severe condemnation of Ukraine by the international community. But in our warped world, it is somehow lauded as a ‘protest’ in the West, both by MSM and – it turns out – by alternative media.
They don’t say which protest exactly these images are from. But since the last such event were attacks on the Russian embassy in Kiev and on the Russian consulate in Odessa, it’s very possible at least some of these are from yesterday, Sunday, September 18, 2016 violent protest by Svoboda party ukro-fascists at the Russian embassy in Kiev. Even if they are not: I have seen yesterday’s videos in which similar grannies and grandpas spat at police and yelled at them: ‘I hate you, you sold out for Poroshenko’s chocolates.’ Note that this is being yelled at police because they are protecting Russian embassy from destruction and voters from being beaten up.
Kiev junta and ukro-nazis of all kinds, including Kiev Rada deputies, did everything yesterday to prevent Russian citizens residing in Ukraine from voting in Russian elections. They wouldn’t let them through, tried to damage the embassy and beat people up. Most voters were too afraid to come near the embassy.
It has to be noted that threats against voters and failure of a host country to protect the embassy and foreign voters during election in any country is considered international crime. We live in a very international world and most countries have expats. There are 80,000 Russian citizens in Ukraine. How they came to be is another story and I’ll explain that in the upcoming ESR on Russian Elections 2016.
Kiev first attempted to ban Russian elections on Ukrainian territory and announced that no protection would be granted. After pressure by EU and Russia, Kiev reluctantly dispatched police for Russian embassy’s protection. These policemen, who just stood there, whose job it was to protect voters and embassy of a foreign state, were subjected to extreme insults by ‘protesters.’ Even more grave insults were hurled at Russia, including calls to ‘destroy Russia and kill all Russians’ and statements that ‘there is no such thing as Russia.’
I have to say that police did a half hearted job in Kiev, and one of the reasons was because grannies and burly thugs alike attacked and shamed them.
Just like with 2014 Kiev coup, grannies were there for the MSM pictures, as a PR stunt. The real dirty work was done by burly militants.
I am preparing a full Earth Shift Report about Russian Elections 2016, which I’ll publish around this Wednesday. In the report, you’ll be able to see videos and pics of the crazy mayhem that went on in Ukraine yesterday, as opposed to how civilized the vote was all over Russia and all over the world.
Sorry to tell you: these poor confused grannies are just convenient dupes for the Western propaganda. They are the ones who facilitated, and continue doing so, fascism in Ukraine.
The video included in the above-linked article, which incidentally has already been deleted, reads in Ukrainian: ‘Defenders of Berkut, watch this video and shut up forever.’ Based on the ‘brilliant’ and ‘highly sophisticated’ language I can tell you that the video comes from either ‘right sector’ or Svoboda ukro-nazis.
Berkut was the special police called in to calm down the 2014 Kiev Maidan. Berkut was given order by then president Yanukovich to just stand there and not respond, while being beaten up and set on fire by West-trained, pumped up with heavy drugs ukro-nazi thugs.
Back then these kinds of grannies were at the Maidan as well. They protested in 2014 because their pensions were meager and because they were duped by the EU and their oligarch-controlled MSM into believing in the EU fairytale. They were told: the moment they join the EU their pensions will be on par with European and they will all be given free BMWs and villas on the Mediterranean. If you think I am joking – nope, I’m dead serious. This was Ukraine propaganda in 2012-2014.
Now, after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup, with Kiev junta and Poroshenko/US occupational forces in power, grivna has gone through the floor, country is teetering on the verge of default, pensions and salaries are a tiny fraction of what they were in 2013 under dreaded Yanukovich. These poor grannies simply can’t survive after electricity/heating rates shot up by 25 times in some places, and the cost of food and medicine has gone through the roof. Meanwhile, the Kiev propaganda blames for this disaster not their own failures, but – who else! The convenient villain catch-all, Russia and Putin.
These grannies are like the Luddites, who destroyed machines at factories during UK industrialization because they were unhappy with their lives and confused as to who to blame for their exploitation. These frustrated grannies should be protesting and dealing with the oligarchs in power, plus foreign occupation of the country by the US/Canada/West. They should be protesting those who get rich off the bloody civil war and bombing of civilians in Donbass.
They should be throwing out of their cushy offices those who caused a breakup with Russia, resulting in a systemic destruction of Ukraine’s economy and loss of sorely needed 15bln in profits from Russian trade. They should be demanding their sold-out puppet government to be replaced with those who genuinely love Ukraine and who would work on restoring good relations and economic ties with Russia – the only country that can help Ukraine get up from its knees.
But they don’t see their own image in the mirror. They are incapable of seeing the truth without distortions. To them, someone else has to be blamed for their lost hope to ‘join EU and live like Europeans.’ For their brains, completely zombified by Kiev propaganda and feeling the humiliation from Crimea and Donbass leaving Ukraine, Russia is the arch-enemy.
So is the police – another easy arch-enemy at whom to lash out. The reason for that is this: they are afraid to attack Poroshenko and his cronies, who are too well protected. If they tried, they’d be shot at or hauled off to jail for life. But simple policemen are just cannon fodder. These ‘protesters’ know that unlike in the USA, Ukraine police was ordered not to respond and treat them all with kid gloves. They know they can insult their police safely and with abandon.
(Note, I am emphatically NOT on the side of Ukraine police – I do think they are sold out and inadequate. But even more so, I am for truth, fairness, reason and balance).
What the author of that article has done (here is the LINK again) is legitimize and promote ukro-fascists, Kiev junta and USA’s takeover of Ukraine. Congratulations, you’ve arrived!
My dear Western friends, if you really mean well and want meaningful change in our big common world, then at least talk about what you know! Don’t talk or show things you have no idea about!
Protests are a good thing. There is a glaring problem with police brutality in the USA and I can see how protests in America are necessary.
However, in the EU for example, police is quite meek, almost too polite and politically correct, rendering it ineffective. In the EU the opposite is true: people wish the police would do more to make them feel protected and secure.
At the same time, in Russia the complete overhaul and sweeping police reform, following prior corruption scandals and population’s discontent, caused a very serious turnaround in police work and oversight. Russia now again has one of the most well-balanced and well-trained police forces in the world.
Meanwhile, Ukraine police is in a disastrous shape: in addition to being extremely corrupt, it is simultaneously inept, demoralized, humiliated and emasculated. Without effective police force, crime, killings, attacks and lawlessness reign supreme in Ukraine, to which police are usually indifferent.
There you have it: one size doesn’t fit all. Moreover, it is strongly suggested one knows the subject before talking about it.
I have published this article to help you, my friends, orient yourself in the confusing sea of conflicting information. My only goal is to illuminate the truth and to educate. I hope the author of this comment, and my readers, understand my motivation!

Putin’s Full Speech at 2015 UNGA: Do You Realize What Kind of Monster You’ve Created? With Xi Jinping and Lukashenko
Putin’s speech to the UN General Assembly – “Do you realize what kind of monster you have created?” Indictment of the US exceptionalism and a call to cooperation. This post includes China’s Xi Jinping, Alexandr Lukashenko of Belarus, and more.
PUTIN’S FULL SPEECH with English translation
Putin’s UNGA press-conference – English:
President of China Xi Jinping at UNGA:
70th session of UN General Assembly: LIVE UPDATES https://www.rt.com/trends/unga70/
Putin’s interview to American TV channels CBS and PBS. Vladimir Putin gave an interview to American journalist Charlie Rose in the run-up to his address at the UN General Assembly’s 70th session.
Full text of the interview will be published on http://en.kremlin.ru September 29.
* * *
CHARLIE ROSE: You will speak to the United Nations in a much-anticipated address on Monday. It will be the first time you have been there in a number of years. What will you say to the UN, to America, to the world?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Since this interview will be aired prior to my speech, I do not think it reasonable to go into much detail about everything I am going to speak about, but, broadly, I will certainly mention some facts from the history of the United Nations. Now I can already tell you that the decision to establish the United Nations was taken in our country at the Yalta Conference. It was in the Soviet Union that this decision was made. The Soviet Union, and Russia as the successor state to the Soviet Union, is a founding member state of the United Nations and a permanent member of its Security Council.
Of course, I will have to say a few words about the present day, about the evolving international situation, about the fact that the United Nations remains the sole universal international organisation designed to maintain global peace. And in this sense it has no alternative today. It is also apparent that it should adapt to the ever-changing world, which we discuss all the time: how it should evolve and at what rate, which components should undergo qualitative changes. Of course, I will have to or rather should use this international platform to explain Russia’s vision of today’s international relations, as well as the future of this organisation and the global community.
CHARLIE ROSE: We are expecting you to speak about the threat of the Islamic State and your presence in Syria that is related to that. What is the purpose of your presence in Syria and how does that relate to the challenge of ISIS?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: I believe, I am pretty certain that virtually everyone speaking from the United Nations platform is going to talk about the fight, about the need to fight terrorism, and I cannot avoid this issue, either. This is quite understandable because it is a serious common threat to all of us; it is a common challenge to all of us. Today, terrorism threatens a great number of states, a great number of people – hundreds of thousands, millions of people suffer from its criminal activity. And we all face the task of joining our efforts in the fight against this common evil.
Concerning our, as you put it, presence in Syria, as of today it has taken the form of weapons supplies to the Syrian government, personnel training and humanitarian aid to the Syrian people. We act based on the United Nations Charter, i.e. the fundamental principles of modern international law, according to which this or that type of aid, including military assistance, can and must be provided exclusively to legitimate government of one country or another, upon its consent or request, or upon the decision of the United Nations Security Council. In this particular case, we act based on the request from the Syrian government to provide military and technical assistance, which we deliver under entirely legal international contracts.
CHARLIE ROSE: The Secretary of State John Kerry said that the United States welcomed your assistance in the fight against the Islamic State. Others have taken note of the fact that these are combat planes and manpad systems that are being used against the conventional army, not extremists.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: There is only one regular army there. That is the army of Syrian President al-Assad. And he is confronted with what some of our international partners interpret as an opposition. In reality, al-Assad’s army is fighting against terrorist organisations. You should know better than me about the hearings that have just taken place in the United States Senate, where the military and Pentagon representatives, if I am not mistaken, reported to the senators about what the United States had done to train the combat part of the opposition forces. The initial aim was to train between 5,000 and 6,000 fighters, and then 12,000 more. It turns out that only 60 of these fighters have been properly trained, and as few as 4 or 5 people actually carry weapons, while the rest of them have deserted with the American weapons to join ISIS. That is the first point.
Secondly, in my opinion, provision of military support to illegal structures runs counter to the principles of modern international law and the United Nations Charter. We have been providing assistance to legitimate government entities only.
In this connection, we have proposed cooperation to the countries in the region, we are trying to establish some kind of coordination framework. I personally informed the President of Turkey, the King of Jordan, as well as the Saudi Arabia of that, we informed the United States too, and Mr Kerry, whom you have mentioned, had an in-depth conversation with our Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on this matter; besides, our military stay in touch and discuss this issue. We would welcome a common platform for collective action against the terrorists.
CHARLIE ROSE: Are you ready to join forces with the United States against ISIS and is it why you are in Syria? Others believe that it might be part of your goal, that you are trying to save President al-Assad’s administration because they have been losing ground and the war has not been going well for them, and you are there to rescue them.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: That’s right, that’s how it is. We provide assistance to legitimate Syrian authorities. Moreover, I strongly believe that by acting otherwise, acting to destroy the legitimate bodies of power we would create a situation that we are witnessing today in other countries of the region or in other regions of the world, for instance, in Libya, where all state institutions have completely disintegrated.
Unfortunately, we are witnessing a similar situation in Iraq. There is no other way to settle the Syrian conflict other than by strengthening the existing legitimate government agencies, support them in their fight against terrorism and, of course, at the same time encourage them to start a positive dialogue with the “healthy” part of the opposition and launch political transformations.
CHARLIE ROSE: As you know, some coalition partners want al-Assad to go before they can support the government.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: I would like to advise or recommend them to forward this suggestion to the Syrian people. It is only up to the Syrian people living in Syria to determine who, how and based on what principles should rule their country.
CHARLIE ROSE: Do you support what President al-Assad is doing in Syria and what is happening to those Syrians, to those millions of refugees, to hundreds of thousands of people who have been killed and many – by his own force?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: And do you think that those who support the armed opposition and, mainly, terrorist organisations just in order to overthrow al-Assad without thinking of what awaits the country after the complete destruction of state institutions are doing the right thing?
Time and again, with perseverance worthy of a better cause, you are talking about the Syrian army fighting against its people. But take a look at those who control 60 percent of Syrian territory. Where is that civilised opposition? 60 percent of Syria is controlled either by ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra or other terrorist organisations, organisations that have been recognised as terrorist by the United States, as well as other countries and the UN.
CHARLIE ROSE: Would Russia deploy its combat troops in Syria if it is necessary to defeat ISIS?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Russia will not take part in any field operations on the territory of Syria or in other states; at least, we do not plan it for now. But we are thinking of how to intensify our work both with President al-Assad and our partners in other countries.
CHARLIE ROSE: As we come back to the problem of many people considering that al-Assad is helping ISIS, that his terrible attitude towards the Syrian people and the use of barrel bombs and other actions are helping ISIS, and if he is removed, the transition period would be better at some point for the purposes of fighting ISIS.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: In secret services’ parlance, I can say that such an assessment is a blatant act by al-Assad’s enemies. It is anti-Syrian propaganda.
CHARLIE ROSE: This wording is very broad, among other things, it can mean new efforts by Russia to take up the leadership role in the Middle East and it can mean that it represents your new strategy. Is it really a new strategy?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: No. There are more than 2,000 militants in Syria from the former Soviet Union. So instead of waiting for them to return back home we should help President al-Assad fight them there, in Syria. This is the main incentive that impels us to help President al-Assad.
In general, we want the situation in the region to stabilize.
CHARLIE ROSE: You are proud of Russia and it means that you want Russia to play a more significant role in the world. This is just one of the examples.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: This is not an end in itself. I am proud of Russia. We have much to be proud of. But we have no obsession that Russia must be a super power in the international arena.
CHARLIE ROSE: But you are a major power because of the nuclear weapons you possess. You are a force to be reckoned with.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: I hope so (laughing), otherwise what are these weapons for?
The Ukrainian issue is a separate huge issue for us, I will tell you why. Ukraine is the closest country to us. We have always said that Ukraine is our sister country and it is true. It is not just a Slavic people, it is the closest people to Russia: we have similar languages, culture, common history, religion etc.
Here is what I believe is completely unacceptable for us. Addressing issues, including controversial ones, as well as domestic issues of the former Soviet Republics through the so-called coloured revolutions, through coups and unconstitutional means of toppling the current government. That is absolutely unacceptable. Our partners in the United States are not trying to hide the fact that they supported those opposed to President Yanukovych.
CHARLIE ROSE: You believe the United States had something to do with the ousting of Yanukovych, when he had to flee to Russia?
VLADIMIR PUTIN.: I know this for sure.
CHARLIE ROSE: How can you know for sure?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: It is very simple. We have thousands of contacts and thousands of connections with people who live in Ukraine. And we know who had meetings and worked with people who overthrew Viktor Yanukovych, as well as when and where they did it; we know the ways the assistance was provided, we know how much they paid them, we know which territories and countries hosted trainings and how it was done, we know who the instructors were. We know everything. Well, actually, our US partners are not keeping it a secret.
CHARLIE ROSE: Doyou respect the sovereignty of Ukraine?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Certainly. However, we would like other countries to respect the sovereignty of other states, including Ukraine, too. Respecting the sovereignty means preventing coups, unconstitutional actions and illegitimate overthrowing of the legitimate government.
CHARLIE ROSE: How does the renewal of the legitimate power take place in your judgment? How will that come about? And what role will Russia play?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: At no time in the past, now or in the future has or will Russia take any part in actions aimed at overthrowing the legitimate government.
CHARLIE ROSE: Did you have to use the military force to accomplish that objective?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Of course, no.
CHARLIE ROSE: Russia has military presence on the borders with Ukraine, and some argue that there have been Russian troops in Ukraine itself.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Do you have a military presence in Europe?
CHARLIE ROSE: Yes.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: The U.S. tactical nuclear weapons are in Europe, let us not forget this. Does it mean that the U.S. has occupied Germany or that the U.S. never stopped the occupation after World War II and only transformed the occupation troops into the NATO forces? And if we keep our troops on our territory on the border with some state, you see it is a crime?
CHARLIE ROSE: As you know, you are very much talked about in America.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Do they not have anything else to do? ( Laughs.)
CHARLIE ROSE: Or maybe they are curious people? Or maybe you are an interesting character, maybe that is what it is? They know that you were the KGB agent, who retired and got into politics. In St. Petersburg you became deputy mayor, then moved to Moscow. And the interesting thing is that they see these images of you, bare-chested man on horseback, and they say there is a man who carefully cultivates his image of strength.
You enjoy the work, you enjoy representing Russia, and I know you have been an intelligence officer. Intelligence officer knows how to read other people; that’s part of the job, right?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: It used to be my job. Now I have a different job and for quite a while already.
CHARLIE ROSE: Someone in Russia told me, “There is no such thing as a former KGB man. Once a KGB man, always a KGB man.”
VLADIMIR PUTIN: You know every stage of your life has an impact on you. Whatever we do, all the knowledge, the experience, they stay with us, we carry them on, use them in one way or another. In this sense, yes, you are right.
CHARLIE ROSE: Once, somebody from the CIA told me that the training you have is important, that you learn to be liked as well. Because you have to charm people, you have to seduce them.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Well, if the CIA told you so, then it must be true. They are experts on that. (Laughing)
CHARLIE ROSE: The popularity rating you have in Russia, I believe, makes every politician in the world envious. Why are you so popular?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: There is something that unites me and other citizens of Russia. It is love for our Motherland.
CHARLIE ROSE: It was an emotional moment at the time of the [World War II Memory], because of the sacrifices Russia had made. And you were staying with a picture of your father with tears in your eyes.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Yes, my family and my relatives as a whole suffered heavy losses during the Second World War. That is true. In my father’s family there were five brothers and four of them were killed, I believe. On my mother’s side the situation is much the same. In general, Russia suffered heavily. No doubt, we cannot forget that and we must not forget, not to accuse anyone but to ensure that nothing of the kind ever happens again.
CHARLIE ROSE: You also said that the worst thing that happened in the last century was the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the Soviet empire. There are those who look at Ukraine and Georgia and think that you do not want to recreate the Soviet empire, but you do want to recreate a sphere of influence, which, you think, Russia deserves because of the relationship that has existed. Why are you smiling?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: (Laughing) Your questions make me happy. Somebody is always suspecting Russia of having some ambitions, there are always those who are trying to misinterpret us or keep something back. I did say that I see the collapse of the Soviet Union as a great tragedy of the XX century. Do you know why? First of all, because 25 million of Russian people suddenly turned out to be outside the borders of the Russian Federation. They used to live in one state; the Soviet Union has traditionally been called Russia, the Soviet Russia, and it was the great Russia. They used to live in one country and suddenly found themselves abroad. Can you imagine how many problems came out?
First, there were everyday issues, the separation of families, the economic and social problems. The list is endless. Do you think it is normal that 25 million people, Russian people, suddenly found themselves abroad? The Russians have turned out to be the largest divided nation in the world nowadays. Is that not a problem? It is not a problem for you as it is for me.
CHARLIE ROSE: As far as we know, you are very popular, but, forgive me, there are many people who are very critical towards you in Russia. As you know, they say it is more autocratic than democratic. They say that political opponents and journalists had been killed and imprisoned in Russia. They say your power is unchallenged. And they say that power, an absolute power corrupts absolutely. What would you say to those people who worry about the climate, the atmosphere in Russia?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: There can be no democracy without observing the law and everyone must observe it – that is the most basic and important thing that we all should remember.
As for those tragic incidents as losses of lives, including those of the journalists, unfortunately, it happens in all countries around the world. But if it occurs in Russia, we take every step possible to ensure that the perpetrators are found, identified and punished. We will work on all issues in the same way.
But the most important thing is that we will continue improving our political system so that people and every citizen will feel that they can influence the life of state and society, they can influence the authorities, and so that the authorities will be aware of their responsibility before those people who gave their confidence to the representatives of the authorities in the elections.
CHARLIE ROSE: If you as the leader of this country insist that the rule of law be observed, if you insist that justice be done, if you because of your power do that, then it could go a long way eliminating that perception.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: A lot can be done, but not everyone immediately succeeds in everything. How long has it taken the democratic process to develop in the United States? Since it was founded. So, do you think that as regards democracy everything is settled now in America? If this were so, there would be no Ferguson issue, right? There would be no other issues of similar kind, there would be no police abuse.
Our goal is to see all these issues and respond to them timely and properly. The same applies to Russia. We also have a lot of problems.
CHARLIE ROSE: Are you curious about America more than simply another nation that you have to deal with?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: It is interesting for us to know what is happening in the US. America has a strong influence on the situation in the world in general.
CHARLIE ROSE: What do you like most about America?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: America’s creative approach to solving the problems the country is faced with, its openness and open-mindedness which make it possible to unleash the potential of the people. I believe that largely due to these qualities America has made such tremendous strides in its development.
CHARLIE ROSE: What do you think of President Obama? What is your evaluation of him?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: I do not think I am entitled to assess the President of the United States. This is up to the American people.
CHARLIE ROSE: Do you think his activities in foreign affairs reflect a weakness?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Why? I do not think so at all. The point is that in any country, including the United States, may be in the United States even more often than in any other country, foreign policy is used for internal political struggle. An election campaign will soon start in the United States. They always play either Russian card or any other.
CHARLIE ROSE: Let me ask you this question: Do you think he listens to you?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: I think that we all listen to each other when it does not contradict our own ideas of what we should and should not do.
CHARLIE ROSE: You said Russia is not a super power. Do you think he considers Russia an equal? Considers you an equal? Which is the way you want to be treated?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: (Laughing) Ask him, he is your President! How can I know what he thinks?
CHARLIE ROSE: Are you watching the republican political debates?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: If you ask me whether I watch them on a daily basis – I would say no.
CHARLIE ROSE: Marco Rubio is running for a Republican nomination and he said you were a gangster.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: How can I be a gangster, if I worked for the KGB? It is absolutely ridiculous.
CHARLIE ROSE: Are people in Russia fearful of you?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: I do not think so. I assume most people trust me, if they vote for me in elections. And it is the most important thing. It places great responsibility on me, immense responsibility. I am grateful to the people for that trust, but I surely feel great responsibility for what I do and for the result of my work.
CHARLIE ROSE: As you know, some have called you a tsar.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: So what? You know, they call me different things…
CHARLIE ROSE: Does this title fit you?
VLADIMIR PUTIN: No, it doesn’t. It is not what your supporters, friends or your political adversaries call you that matters. What is important is what you think you must do in the interests of the country, which put you in such position, such post as the Head of the Russian State.
Transcripts of Putin’s meetings in NYC, September 28, Monday:
Putin also did meet with Barack Obama (see Putin’s press conference for more).
For comparison’s sake, here is President of the USA Barack Hussein Obama’s Full Speech at 2015 UNGA. While Putin spoke for 23 minutes, Obama spoke for 44 minutes – almost twice as long, disregarding the allotted 15 minute limit.
Another interesting one: President of Belarus Alexandr Lukashenko’s speech to the 2015 UNGA (Russian), which I’ve translated below.
Речь Лукашенко Генассамблея ООН. 27.09.2015. Батька! Нью-Йорк 27.09.2015.
(LR: The standard of living in Belarus is twice as high as in the neighboring Ukraine, especially after the US/EU-sponsored coup of 2014. The population of Belarus is still intact due to Belarus continuing to develop its industrial-agricultural base and close cooperation with Russia. This is the opposite of the catastrophic loss of the population in Ukraine, with millions of refugees and migrants to Russia, and the neighboring Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania (EU members), where half of the adult population emigrated to richer EU states and to Russia to find work. See my comprehensive article about Belarus, Lukashenko and neighboring countries: Bluff or Ukraine-2 Disaster? Why Lukashenko and Belarus Are Cozying Up to the West. By comparison, the standard of living in Russia is 4 times that of Ukraine.)
Lukashenko has also said that the world is more imbalanced than ever; since the collapse of the USSR, the world has failed to regain the true balance and stability. If there is no stability, there is no peace and no balance of power. In any system where there is one single power left, that power will try to gain unfair advantage and increase its own prosperity at the expense of all others. The politics of the US hegemony and national egotism leads to unprecedented pressure on all other countries, sanctions and military interventions.
On the surface and for all to see, we have examples of extreme political arrogance, lies and crimes against humanity. Recent examples are how certain countries decided to democratize Iraq, using the excuse of the non-existent weapons of mass destruction. So, where are those weapons of mass destruction? Where is the Iraq democracy? Why was the president of Iraq killed? What’s left of the country once called Iraq? You’ll say they have made a mistake. Then they should have stopped. But no, they went on to destroy Libya. Maybe enough is enough? No, Syria is next on their agenda.
Same with Ukraine, said Lukashenko. If we don’t stop civil war in Europe, where brothers kill their brothers, the entire world ‘will plunge into a hot crisis, leading to a global war in the very center of the civilized and developed world’ (that’s verbatim what he said). ‘In thousands of years we still fail to understand how fragile peace and stability are. I say this to remind the rulers of this world that God sees what you are doing. You all commit crimes against humanity, while you all appear to be religious people, all attend church. But what if God gets angry enough at your actions and decides to punish your countries. Your innocent people will then have to pay for your crimes’ (again, verbatim).
A snippet of the official breakfast of the UN leaders:
Calibration Reading — Earth & Personal Shift — Earth Shift Predictions — Feng Shui
In several prior articles (a discussion which continues in the comment section of said articles) we had discussed how US used the Moon landing hoax in order to boost its international image, sway Europe and some other countries towards closer cooperation with it against Russia, and how this masterfully constructed lie contributed to the result of the Cold War.
A similar deviously constructed trap for Russia has been organized in Ukraine. It started as Kiev maidan and the illegal ukro-nazi coup, and continued as attempts to drag Russia into a direct military confrontation in Ukraine. Since they were unable to achieve that, plan B was Russia’s isolation and weakening/destruction of the Russian economy via sanctions. Isolation didn’t work either. But sanctions are still in place, and they will continue being in place for as long as Russia conducts her own independent policy. Russia certainly will continue doing so, which in fact means that sanctions will be on for as long as US is able to twist the arms of the EU countries such as France, Germany and Italy.
Recall that before the MH17 tragedy in E. Ukraine EU was extremely reluctant to start a new round of broader sanctions against Russia. To get EU off the fence, extreme measures were required. Such extreme incident was ‘conveniently’ provided by MH17 downing. Within two hours of the tragedy in E. Ukraine, Russia and Donbass self-defence were immediately accused by US State Dept spokesperson Jen Psaki of shooting down the civilian plane. US got this info, she said, from Facebook and Twitter. Within days of the MH17 tragedy, EU countries, like one, voted for broader sanctions against Russia.
The official report on the MH17 tragedy is to finally come out in October, a delay that in itself is extremely suspicious. Meanwhile, Russia and Donetsk Republic have already been tried and convicted by the Western media and governments.
The fallacy of the official Western party line is obvious even to a layman, albeit a sharp one. Listen to an excellent analysis of the MH17 tragedy and lies surrounding it by a concerned French citizen Thierry Andre Laurent-Pellet. He conducted his own investigation, covering pretty much all incongruities and lies in the official pre-reports and the investigation in general.
When you listen to this interview, recall my article from 2014 in which I reported about a whistleblower who came out with information that a Ukraine airforce pilot Captain Voloshin returned distraught from a flight around the time of the tragedy, confessing in a private conversation that he ‘shot down the wrong plane.’ Captain Voloshin disappeared later, as did the Spanish air traffic controller who worked at the time in Dnepropetrovsk air traffic control responsible for re-directing the Malaysia Airlaines plane into the dangerous war zone, and who tried to expose the truth about MH17 in his tweets. Here is the article in question: Ukraine’s Snowden: Whistleblower confirms MH17 was shot down by Ukraine.

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

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

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

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

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

Tragedy in Konstantinovka: Today the city of Konstantinovka in Donetsk region, which is presently under the Kiev junta occupation, buried the 8-year-old girl killed three days ago by the Kiev soldiers.
Two drunk Ukraine soldiers driving a heavy armored vehicle “Ural” ran over three people on city sidewalk. A young mother was walking with her two children: 5-month-old baby in a stroller and 8-year-old girl Polina. Polina died on the spot; the mother and the baby were taken to the hospital. Information about their condition is being blocked by Kiev.
On the footage below it is clearly visible that armored vehicle “Ural” ran over two tall posts located on the curb of the road and continued moving through the dirt separator, at least 3-4 meters in width, between the road and sidewalk, slamming into the unsuspecting people who had the misfortune to walk past. Both soldiers were so drunk, they could hardly stand on their feet. The driver, 23 (born 1991), is from Lvov – the city in western Ukraine, which is a hotbed of ukro-nazism. It has been reported that in their drunken stupor they decided to drag race on the busy road full of civilians and located in the city center. As angry crowd started gathering at the scene, the commander arrived almost immediately and whisked the two drunk soldiers away. The crowd started throwing rocks at the car as it sped away.
Later at night, angry citizens, who were demanding justice, burned tires and set on fire the army barracks, demanding Kiev troops leave the city and calling them occupiers. In response, Kiev gave order to shoot at the crowd and sent 300 ukro-nazis from the ‘right sector,’ who would have no qualms following this order.
This is the interview with a local Konstantinovka woman Olga, who knew the family of the killed girl Polina: Link.
Locals are saying that Kiev troops are always drunk and behave like German Nazis during WWII. They frequently run over old people, cars and plow into private houses on their armored vehicles. They also frequently shoot in the air at night when they are drunk or on drugs. Locals think of them as aggressors and can’t wait to be liberated by DNR. There is no way, says the woman, they could live in the same country with Ukrainians. It was possible last year, when Donbass was asking for autonomy, but not any more.
Olga said that in May 2014, during the Donbass independence referendum, she voted for DNR and against Kiev, and so did most of her compatriots. People of Donbass felt very hopeful at that time. They all hope to be back with Donetsk and DNR one day. Olga also said that everyone in Konstantinovka was angry at the killing of the little girl, but when people heard that Kiev gave order to shoot at the crowd, many were afraid to come out to protest and stayed home.
Still, as we’ll see from videos below, quite a few people did come out. Unfortunately, the next day arrests started. SBU and ukro-nazis dragged a large number of people off in the unknown direction. Arrests and intimidation continue. Video footage of the tragedy aftermath and riots:
ДТП в Константиновке. Траектория движения убийц. Movement Trajectory of Polina’s killers.
March 16, footage of the tragedy aftermath 18+ Константиновка. Разъяренные местные жители бьют оккупантов. Immediately after tragedy: Angry Konstantinovka citizens throwing rocks at Kiev occupiers
On a different note – Ukraine is disaster for retirees and young people alike. Economic collapse is visible: From the same interview with Olga from Konstantinovka near Donetsk, presently occupied by Kiev junta: retiree receives a monthly pension of 1200 grivnas and at the same time gets a monthly bill for communal charges (apartment building maintenance and utilities) for 2100 grivnas. People can’t wait to be liberated by DNR. Interview link.
The industrial city of Krivoy Rog, Dnepropetrovsk region – same kind of news: retiree receives a monthly pension of 1400 grivnas, while communal charges for the same period are 1500 grivnas. (Obviously food, medicine, transport and entertainment are superfluously extravagant luxuries – LR). People in Krivoy Rog are pro-Putin and anti-Poroshenko: interview link. The interviewed from Krivoi Rog adds that he has nothing to thank Ukraine for; it has done nothing for him. He says he attends correspondence college in the Russian city of Rostov, across the border. The Russian college he goes to guarantees employment and he is looking forward to moving for work to the Russian Federation as soon as he graduates. But Ukraine government has been blocking people from crossing the border with Russia. As a result, he’s been unable to get to his college for a year now and is on the verge of being kicked out.
Depending on the area in today’s Ukraine, prices, communal charges and cost of living rise by 20-50%+ every month, while salaries and pensions stay the same.

Intel: Is Kiev About to Break Minsk Accords? New Offensive on Donbass and False Flags to Sabotage Victory Day in Russia
Intel: in two or three weeks Kiev is expected to start a massive new offensive on Donbass. False flags, provocations and terrorist acts to sabotage, or make more difficult, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory (WWII Victory Day) celebration in Russia on May 9th are also possible. Since Nemtsov murder near Kremlin, Russians are on full alert; therefore, I expect it won’t be possible in Moscow and/or the main Russian cities. But Ukraine and Donbass are a different story.
According to the expert of the Russian Military Sciences Academy Vladimir Prokhvatilov (interview link), confirmed by multiple intelligence sources in Donbass and Ukraine, Kiev is expected to start a new massive offensive on Donbass in order to surround and cut Donetsk off Lugansk, with simultaneous attack on Lugansk. We will recall that a similar recent attempt resulted in the Debaltsevo cauldron, where thousands of Ukrainian troops perished. This time, the result will be the same, but it appears Kiev doesn’t care about the result, it only cares about making the life of the Donbass people as difficult as possible, and about sabotaging Russian holidays.
Kiev has officially broken the Minsk agreements. Instead of pulling its heavy artillery away from the front lines in oder to create a demilitarized zone, Kiev is amassing heavy artillery, tanks and troops.
It is believed that they will attack during the sacred Orthodox Holiday – Pascha (Easter). Previous mass bombings of DNR and LNR, as well as mass attacks by Kiev on both republics, were all scheduled during an important holiday, in order to spoil people’s celebration. This year, Pascha is celebrated on April 12.
It is further believed that Kiev and their handlers will attempt to create as many problems as possible for both Donbass and Russia during the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory. Victor Day is traditionally celebrated in Russia on May 9th, with a parade and show on Red Square. Similar events will take place in many other cities and towns.
Kiev attacks, false flags and provocations are expected between April 12 and May 9.
In January, I wrote about the observers’ warning of a massive false flag in Ukraine, to dwarf MH17 downing.
However, while we were watching Ukraine, instead Boris Nemtsov was killed in Moscow, next to the Kremlin (Lada’s Investigation: Who Benefits from the Death of the Russian Opposition Leader Boris Nemtsov?). This distracted the world from Ukraine. While everyone was looking into Nemtsov’s killing, and then, while everyone was trying to figure out where in the world is Vladimir Putin, Kiev has been amassing troops and heavy artillery for the new attack on Donbass.
One thing Nemtsov killing did is further divide and discredit the Russian neo-liberal opposition, and further consolidate people around Putin.
We are back to my January warnings: warnings of serious false flags or terrorist acts in Ukraine, Donbass, on the Russian border, and possibly in Russia (although that would be difficult as now Russians are extra vigilant). Experts continue warning of possible nuclear power station false flag in Ukraine. See my January 2015 article: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.
Related intel: Украинские войска стягивают технику и готовятся перейти в наступление, – разведчик армии Новороссии (Ukro-army is amassing artillery and tanks, preparing to attack – Novorossia army intelligence officer).
Related nuclear station false flag warning from Vladimir Rogov (Zaporozhie), and more: На нашу землю пришел западный оккупант, – Владимир Рогов (Western aggressor came to out land).

Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller has warned 2 days ago that Kiev failed to pre-pay for Russian gas. He has said that Gazprom will have no choice but to cut off gas to Ukraine, since pre-payment has failed to be delivered on time. According to the agreement reached in the fall 2014 between Ukraine, Russia and EU, where EU acted as intermediary and guarantor for Ukraine, Kiev must pre-pay for any gas deliveries. The discount gas price was also negotiated. Previously, Kiev regularly failed to pay for gas delivered in advance.
Miller also warned that Russian gas shut-off for Ukraine would mean the danger of gas supply disruptions for the EU – video report in Russian. The reason for that is Ukraine’s siphoning of gas designated for EU that goes through the Gazprom pipeline located on their territory. The tactic of stealing EU’s gas has been implemented by Kiev for years.
In the video below, Vladimir Putin confirms the above, saying that “Gazprom has been fully committed and continues being committed to fulfilling all of its contractual obligations. Ukraine’s pre-payment is only enough for no more than 3-4 days. After that, Gazprom will cease gas deliveries to Ukraine.”
As of 2014, Ukraine owed Russia $5.5bln in unpaid gas debt. Overall, Ukraine owes Russia over $33-36 bln, considering both corporate and state debt. Incidentally, Gazprom was the very last creditor able to collect $3bln (out of $5.5bln) from Ukraine.
The country is bankrupt. Any money that is still there, gets stolen by oligarchs, corrupt politicians and military. Ukraine economy has been destroyed as a result of the February, 2014 coup; as a consequence of severing all ties with Russia – until recently, the largest buyer of Ukraine goods; and due to the devastating civil war with Donbass.
The true state of the Ukraine economy has been concealed through Western loans to keep the coma patient just barely alive. Another way to keep delaying the admission of insolvency is to conduct a war. This is why the war with Donbass is necessary for Kiev.
Several EU countries have been doing the illegal ‘reverse supply’ of the Russian gas to Ukraine, also to keep the patient just barely breathing. In reality, it’s not a reverse supply at all: part of EU gas simply stays in Ukraine, being siphoned off, while Ukraine still illegally collects Gazprom transit fees for this volume.
IMF, US and EU won’t keep supporting Ukraine forever. It’s too big, too corrupt and too broke. Ukraine is needed for the West, and especially for the US, as a convenient tool in order to weaken Russia by maintaining an area of permanent instability on Russia’s borders, and if they are lucky, by dragging Russia into the direct confrontation with Ukraine. There are economic and propaganda reasons as well, such as sabotaging Russian economy, painting Russia as a villain and aggressor, as well as making Russia strain her resources trying to help Donbass, and later Ukraine.
Certainly, US would love to see EU weaken as a result of Ukraine conflict as well. Putting a wedge between Russia and EU (it especially concerns Western Europe/Germany/France), and Russia and Ukraine, is also high on the US list.
The territory known today as Ukraine will be abandoned and thrown out as a used-up lemon as soon as US/West see that it’s too expensive and too unproductive to keep afloat this Titanic. This will happen as soon as they decide that their plans in regards to Russia have failed. Until this realization settles in, unfortunately, they will keep tormenting the poor Ukraine.
The ukro-nazi Kiev regime is both inept and extremely corrupt. The population of Ukraine has been duped by Western/Polish/Soros sponsored and trained MSM. But no one can be duped unwillingly. Part of Ukraine populace wanted to be duped into believing the fairytale that once they sign an association agreement with EU they would start making salaries and pensions on par with European and that everything somehow would become champagne and roses in their corrupt country. In reality, Europeans themselves would have told these naive and lazy Ukrainians that only hard work and taking responsibility for their future could turn things around for them. Doing nothing and hoping for a rich uncle to come and save them would hardly help.
These ukro-sheeple allowed the nazi regime to take over the country, and they allowed the destruction of the economic link with their biggest trade partner and closest neighbor, Russia.
But the most important thing to understand about contemporary Ukraine is this: while the minority was rabidly anti-Russian, and while some believed the Western fairytale, the majority was simply apathetic and indifferent. The reason for this is that many of those who in the West are customarily called ‘Ukrainians,’ in fact do not consider themselves as such, and do not believe in their country. The majority of Ukraine citizens never asked to be separate from Russia and didn’t want the 1991 divorce. They awoke one day to find out in surprise they were foreigners in Russia, the country they considered their motherland. For 23+ years, they lived in the country they didn’t believe in.
According to the official data, 7-8 million Ukrainians choose to live and work in Russia. Out of these, at least 5-6 have been employed in Russia for a long time, the rest are refugees from the present Ukraine crisis and draft dodgers. There are 1.1 million of Ukrainian draft dodgers presently in Russia.
The above doesn’t take into account those former Ukrainians who managed to become Russian citizens. There are lots of these too. This also doesn’t take into account the 2.5 million Crimeans. Crimean population increased from 2.2 million to 2.5 million during the past 8-10 months, as Ukrainians run to Crimea in order to become Russian citizens.
More about apathy. When people in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa, and even in Kiev, saw ukro-nazis parading in Western Ukraine, they thought, “Let them, as long as they stay in Western Ukraine and don’t bother us.” But ukro-nazis didn’t stop at Western Ukraine.
When they saw ukro-nazis burning tires and throwing Molotov cocktails during 2014 Kiev maidan, they thought, “So what; as long as they stay away from our towns.” Then ukro-nazis came to their towns and villages and started shelling them and burning people alive.
The people of Donbass and Ukraine now have no choice but to notice what they tried hard to ignore: for 23 years they had lived in the artificial conglomerate of oblasts with varying interests and allegiances, loosely and reluctantly tied together by economic infrastructure, and forced to live within one state they never wanted. The long-festering infestation has been finally brought to the surface and exposed to all. It has become impossible to ignore; the situation has gone too far and it has to be dealt with. Where the artificial state called Ukraine used to be, eventually, the new country (or most likely, 2-3 new countries) will have to be rebuilt from ruins.
Ukraine’s future now depends on the inner life force of its people. The higher the life force, the better the prospects for the people’s future and the sooner any country is able to get out of a crisis. Russia’s life force is so strong that, despite all the problems, it has taken Russia less than one decade (1992-2000) to get out of one of the most devastating crises in her long and turbulent history. Ukraine isn’t Russia, as we can clearly see. Read more in-depth analysis in: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.
However sad and cruel it may sound, Ukraine needs this cleansing through fire and ice, through war and devastation. If all this doesn’t awaken the people of Ukraine, nothing will. As a necessary side effect, the Ukraine crisis already woke up Russian people, as well as the people in Asia and Latin America; it’s even starting to wake up Europeans.
This Kiev government is in fact a demolition crew, there to complete the destruction of Ukraine’s economy.
If US/West can’t have Ukraine, they will make sure the future generations get a wreck of a country, and that Russia has to spend as many resources as possible to resurrect Ukraine economy later. The problem with this way of thinking and operating is that karma is a bitch. As the Russian saying I mentioned previously goes (it’s worth repeating), “don’t dig a grave for someone else – you’ll fall in it yourself.” It may not happen right away, but it will happen.

Episode description: Results and underlying motivations of Minsk2 Ukraine peace negotiations. What do Putin, Merkel, Hollande and Poroshenko want? Is peace in Ukraine possible? What is happening to Ukraine economy? What is the roadmap for Donbass/Novorossia (DNR and LNR). Lada Ray explains and predicts.
Lada Ray is known for her accurate global predictions, as well as for her articles and interviews on the geopolitics and global role of Russia and the Russian world. Among other things, Lada speaks and writes extensively about Ukraine, Europe, Eurasia and other regions of the world.
Details are scant, but a few days ago various ukro-nazi battalions gathered in Kiev demanding a bigger and better war against Donbass, with more war expenditure, bigger help from the US and NATO, and more ballistic missile bombings of the citizens of Donetsk (DNR) and Lugansk (LNR). Today, it appears the members of the same ukro-nazi battalions and their sympathisers are storming the administration of the Ukraine president Poroshenko, who according to them, has been too mild towards Donbass and too friendly to Russia. Most others would say it were the other way around, but that’s their point of view.
It has to be noted that this revolt so far is very mild compared to the 2014 Kiev maidan. No Molotov cocktails and setting police on fire, no burning tires. This may be an attempt to scare Poroshenko into taking an even tougher position against Russia, Donbass and people in other areas of Ukraine, such as Odessa and Kharkov, who don’t want to live under junta.
Also, I did mention in various past posts that Poroshenko is being prepared for the role of a sacrificial lamb, on whom Yatsenyuk and his cronies are getting ready to hang all the failures and economic collapse. I was expecting a new maidan in the spring. But the timeline may be accelerating. Unfortunately, a more pro-nazi, and even more aggressive junta headed by hawks Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Avakov nd Nalivaichenko, plus the nazi battalion commanders, would come to power, if Poroshenko were to be unseated.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile in Donbass and Odessa:
Consequences of the Ukraine army shelling of Donetsk:
Stunning Turnaround! Donetsk Announces Mariupol and Debaltsevo Offensives, Refuses Poroshenko’s Fake Truce
The Head of DNR (Donetsk People’s Republic) Alexander Zakharchenko has officially announced that the DNR army started a major offensive on the important port and key city of Mariupol. Some other stunning announcements were made, signalling a major turnaround!
First, there was the terrorist act in Volnovakha, Donetsk region, as a result of which at least 15 people died and 20 were wounded. Then, on January 22, 2015, Ukraine’s subversive terrorist group blew up a trolleybus on a crowded Donetsk city stop, killing 8 and injuring scores of people.
How did a Ukrainian subversive group got into Donetsk? Based on Minsk accords, Ukraine and DNR regularly exchanged prisoners. There were many complaints of Ukraine swindling Donbass by kidnapping various homeless people and random private citizens in cities far away from DNR and LNR, and than exchanging them for ukro-nazis or Kiev military. Feeling sorry for the poor prisoners, the Donbass people accepted everyone, until in December they discovered that 7 out of 200+ prisoners being exchanged were actually ukro-nazi subversive terrorists, sent to infiltrate Donetsk. These seven were arrested. However, as it turned out later, the entire group numbered 16. The remnant of that group executed the Donetsk bus stop terror act.
In the beginning of January the Kiev junta president Poroshenko cancelled the scheduled Minsk peace working group meeting. On January 15, he also cancelled the Astana summit/peace conference, signaling that he didn’t want any peace negotiations. Since his trip to Paris, for the “Unity March,” Poroshenko declared mass mobilization and revived the brutal bombings of Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as other towns and villages in DNR and LNR. Daily, dozens of peaceful citizens die, and houses, apartment blocks, factories, mines, water mains, power stations, gas pipelines, hospitals, museums, and schools are being destroyed.
Meanwhile in Kiev, Poroshenko, Nalivaichenko, Avakov, Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, and their cronies, resolved to restart a massive offensive on Donetsk and Lugansk, trying to retake the crucial Donetsk airport and other key points in both republics. Their other big goal was to cut off Donetsk from Lugansk completely.
However, the result was the opposite of what they expected. DNR and LNR (Lugansk People’s Republic) self-defence managed to quickly defeat the Ukraine army on all directions, despite the Kiev army outnumbering them 10 to 1. They retook Donetsk airport, several key blockposts and several villages and towns.
I have discussed what is happening in Ukraine in detail in my latest post: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.

Immediately after losing on all fronts, Poroshenko announced that he wanted to restart the peace process. Pretty much all analysts predicted Poroshenko would remember peace negotiations as soon his army started losing.
A week or two ago, the Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, was fully committed to continuing the peace process, despite being criticized by many that he wasn’t being tough enough. Zakharchenko judged that if he could save the lives of more citizens, even a bad peace was worth it. However, the latest events proved that the truce was used by Ukraine to accumulate forces, both military and subversive, in order to kill more citizens. See the interview with Zakharchenko and Ukraine prisoners of war in the Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive article link above.
After the Donetsk terror act, Zakharchenko did a sharp turn-around. His new position, much tougher than before, is that DNR will consider no truce with Ukraine; DNR will enter no peace negotiations until after Ukraine vacates the entire territory of former Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts – now parts of DNR and LNR, under Ukraine occupation.
Here is Zakharchenko’s talk with students at the Donetsk University, in which he discusses some of that. Link. It’s a talk in which Zakharchenko, historian by trade, has shown his different side – that of a teacher. I will talk more about some interesting things he hinted on in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: The Grand Experiment Novorossia.
Also see this video – commemoration of the victims of the Donetsk bus stop bombing: В Донецке прошел траурный митинг по погибшим в результате обстрела остановки. Small boy’s sign says: “I am not a separatist, I am Misha.” Man’s sign: “I survived despite…” Also: “I am not Charlie, I am Donbass.”
I noticed that the timing of my predictions started accelerating dramatically since the end of 2014. I said in False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons that DNR may advance on Mariupol, Gorlovka and Slavyansk if Ukraine keeps provoking them – and here it is!
It is clear from some other announcements by Zakharchenko, made in an uncharacteristically somber tone, sweat on his brow, that he tried to work with Kiev, but that he is done with that. The conclusion being made is that there is no possibility of going back to any negotiations with the Kiev regime until DNR and LNR win this war, restore their territorial integrity, and prevail fully over the Kiev nazi junta. Only when DNR and LNR are strong enough must they negotiate.
Another possibility I see: under pressure from all directions, the Kiev regime may simply implode like a soap-bubble, as people in different parts of former Ukraine retake power. Of course, this would be a much preferred outcome. DNR now has a great chance to help themselves and everyone else.
Therefore, for the first time ever, Zakharchenko has announced a major offensive operation: the DNR army advancement on Mariupol. I previously spoke about the importance of Mariupol. It is the second largest city in Donetsk region with 400,000 population. It is also a major port on Azov Sea, connecting to the Black Sea, which would give DNR access to major international sea routes and transportation.
From thereon, it’s not far to Kherson, which connects directly to Crimea. As we know, Crimea is now cut off by land from Russia. Connecting to Mariupol and then Kherson will give land connection to Crimea to both Donbass and Russia. If I were the Novorossia geopolitical consultant (which I am not), taking Mariupol first and foremost would have been my advice.
The containment factor for DNR was that they refused to shell any of their cities, thus potentially endangering their citizens’ lives. This humanitarian restraint was what Kiev counted on since they occupied Mariupol, Slavyansk, and other areas of DNR and LNR. Back in May 2014, many unarmed citizens of Mariupol tried to prevent Kiev tanks from getting into the city, resulting in a horrible massacre on par with May 2, 2014 Odessa massacre. Many local citizens were killed, wounded and kidnapped.
It is a terrible choice: to bomb or not to bomb. But I am afraid DNR can’t get around taking over Mariupol, and – sadly – Kiev will do everything to make this as bloody as possible, out of spite and vengeance, and so later to blame any losses on DNR. Looks like they have already started doing that.
In the final analysis, the cancer of the ukro-nazi Kiev junta has already gone too far and is metastasizing into all parts of the dying patient’s body. There is no way to cut that cancer out without a major intervention. DNR must do it. Trying to minimize losses is also a tall order, but it needs to be done.
Zakharchenko’s announcement: Александр Захарченко заявил о начале наступления на Мариуполь. While commemorating the victims of the Donetsk bus bombing, he announced that DNR started advancement on Mariupol.
Zakharchenko also announced that the 1/24/15 bombing of Mariupol is a provocation of the Kiev regime. Self-defence, he said, has no artillery in that area.
Zakharchenko dropped another bomb: he said that the Debaltsevo cauldron (Rus: “kotel”), where by some reports are surrounded 8,000 Ukraine military, will be closed in 2 days. The Debaltsevo cauldron wasn’t advertised and sort of sneaked up on everyone. But it’s a major joint operation by LNR and DNR armies, which is the result of an opportunity stemming from gross incompetence and sabotage in the Ukraine army. Ukraine army’s goal was to cut off DNR from LNR, but another major defeat was the result. More in: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.
Map of current military operations in Novorossia
The Debaltsevo cauldron is in-between two red arrows (with tanks) north of Donetsk in the center of the map; Lugansk is in the upper right corner; Mariupol is at the bottom left of the map on the Asov Sea shore (next to black tank).
DNR and LNR have also announced that they are stopping prisoner exchanges due to the fact that among prisoners Kiev tries to sneak in their subversive terror groups.
My prediction: when the Debaltsevo ring is closed, this will effectively mean the beginning of the end of Ukraine junta’s army. As I said in my above-referenced article, people already hide and run away from ‘mogilization.’ Once another 8,000 troops get taken prisoner or worse, the entire army is likely to rebel.
Another prediction: once DNR takes Mariupol, it will be the beginning of the end of the Kiev junta as a whole. That’s why they are hanging on to it for dear life. Remember the documentaries and movies showing a hasty and humiliating evacuation of Americans from Vietnam after they lost the Vietnam War? Expect something similar in Kiev, once Ukraine implodes.
That said, don’t hope that US and Kiev junta will just give up. They won’t make it easy. First, they’ll continue bombings and attempts to blame their own atrocities on Novorossia. Also, as I said before, a major false flag in Ukraine is a very clear and present danger. If you thought MH17 was a shocker – rest assured they are planning something much bigger. For details refer to my above-referenced article.
There are many forces in the world that are working tirelessly to prevent some of the most outrageous false flags planned. There is hope that the worst nuclear disaster may be prevented. But we aren’t out of the woods by any measure.
And of course, US will keep trying to undermine Russian economy, economies of other Eurasian Union members, as well as bribing, threatening and intimidating anyone and everyone around the world who even slightly diverges from their viewpoint.
We are going through a tectonic shift of staggering proportions, and Ukraine, as the ground zero if this tectonic shift, as that fault line between the old and the new I mentioned in my previous piece, is the epicenter of the biggest battle.
This is the case of: just grit your teeth and get through it. There is light in the end of this tunnel.
On the note of manipulating, bribing and intimidating. The present attempts by Obama to bribe Cuba by lifting the 50-year-old sanctions, and especially Iran, by releasing $12bln in frozen Iranian funds (which US themselves usurped previously), plus ‘allowing’ Iran to have its own nuclear program, something US fought tooth and nail just recently, won’t go anywhere. These actions of Obama are an attempt to get back at Russia for the many defeats US suffered in 2013 and 2014. They demonstrate extreme desperation and the fact that US is grasping at straws. In fact, US is losing its grip not only on its adversaries, but also on its allies.

False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons
Ukraine is the geopolitical ground zero and the massive fault line between the old and the new. It is in Ukraine that the future of the entire mankind is now being decided.
This is why anything that happens in and around Ukraine and Novorossia/Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk) has such global resonance. Even those who don’t understand geopolitics and hidden connections between things, people and events, still sense that something important is taking place in those parts.
US president Obama claims Russia is one of the three problems the ‘world’ has, the other two being Ebola and ISIS. Obama obviously means the US-centric, petrodollar-denominated world, which has nothing to do with the perception of the world by the majority of mankind.
I am not going to re-tell the ludicrous things Obama parroted about how terrible Russia is and how great USA is in his State of the Union Address. You can find it online. I am not going to discuss how with these words the entire congregation of Obama-followers exploded with stand-up ovation, reminding me of the Maoist China or USSR Politburo, rather than of what we used to consider a democratic society.
I am also not going to talk about the anti-Russian statements by the neoliberal ameri-nazi Samantha Powers, US ambassador to the UN, whose speeches resemble the Goebbels war propaganda (she is a personal friend of Obama’s, I hear). I received some comments in the past trying to convince me that Obama would ‘in the end stand tall,’ and that I shouldn’t criticise the US politicians. Those who still harbor any illusions as to who Obama, or any other US politicians are and what they are capable of, I suggest you lose these illusions for your own benefit, to avoid severe disappointment later. In fact I very rarely, if ever, talk about US politicians because I think it’s clear who they are. In fact, they aren’t worth my time and energy. I won’t say more about Obama, although I could say quite a lot. You can see my prediction about Obama in 2015, if you follow the above PREDICTIONS link.
This post is also not about the fact that Ukraine regime’s PM Yatsenyuk recently went to Germany, where he proclaimed that Russia invaded Germany and Ukraine – a statement met with uneasy silence by Merkel and German politicians. Poroshenko meanwhile is in Davos, where he is parading a piece of the hole-ridden Volnovakha bus, which was blown up by the Kiev regime with 13 peaceful pensioners and children killed and 16 wounded. Poroshenko’s story is of course to deny the obvious, insisting that it was a shell from the Donbass self-defence that hit the bus (contrary to conclusions by military experts).
You will remember that since the beginning of 2014 I’ve predicted that not only Russia wouldn’t send troops to Ukraine, or get involved militarily, but also that Russia would slowly remold the situation in Ukraine in her favor, using all peaceful and quiet means at her disposal. I also said that eventually very different people would come to power in Ukraine and that between 2016 and 2018 Ukraine would do a wild swing to the opposite side and join Eurasian Union. I further said that Ukraine would never be admitted to the EU or NATO. Most of the above has already come true; recently German and other EU politicians have re-confirmed than no one would admit Ukraine.
Not only the maidan promises by Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Klitchko and the ukro-nazi gang that Ukrainians would soon travel to the EU visa-free and would live ‘just like Europeans do’ turned out false, bu the EU is now closing visas to even those Ukrainians who previously had them. The EU is desperately afraid to be flooded by ukro-nazi gangs and deranged armed thugs. These fears are well-founded.
But at the same time, EU is serving as an instrument of the US-led aggression in Ukraine. Certainly, the war and destruction of Ukraine is in the best interests of the US. It is also in the best interests of the US to weaken the economies of Russia and EU with their own hands, as I repeatedly warned in the past.
Throughout 2014 I wrote a lot about how the aggression in Ukraine was, and continues being perpetrated. I won’t go over the massive amount of proof I had cited in my many previous articles. Those who are new are welcome to read through my past writings.
It’s a pity that so few people seemed to have clicked on like for my last article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates. This article, like many others on my blog, reveals the inconvenient truth and contains a dire and very important warning. I had just released it, and massive proofs and confirmations of what I had said in it, began pouring in.
You probably remember that several days ago Polish government appeared to have snubbed Russian President Vladimir Putin for an invitation to the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Poland and Auschwitz from the German Nazis. The Ukraine puppet president Poroshenko and lots of other heads of state had been invited. The clincher is that it was specifically RUSSIAN/SOVIET ARMY that liberated both Auschwitz and entire Poland. In other words, the liberator, without whom I wonder what would have happened to Poland (?…), wasn’t welcome. Talk about ingratitude.
But the Polish president didn’t stop at that. He said that it was Ukrainian army that liberated Poland, thus not only falsifying history, but also insulting all those who were there – and we are talking millions of Soviet soldiers from all corners of the USSR – 100 nationalities in all, most of them Russian.
The above goes hand in hand with my article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates, which I suggest you all take more seriously. This is the anti-Russian Manchurian Candidate army at work in Poland, and elsewhere.
Neighboring Latvia (another Trojan Horse of the US in the EU) has become a true nazi state. The new law will fine 400 euro anyone who dares to speak Russian in Latvia. More about that in comments by Paul and Nemo here. There is also more in comments by Nemo here. Again, US Manchurian Candidate army hard at work!
Keep reading! Below, you will find a lot more proof of criminal involvement of Poland, US and other countries in the armed conflict in Ukraine.
The Kiev regime is on its last legs and it is trying desperately to stay afloat by blaming Russia and the poor Donbass they are so bent on destroying, in all their self-inflicted problems. Poroshenko and his cronies are also starting to get on the nerves of their US/NATO handlers.
The earth-shattering news from Ukraine keep pouring in. As if the Volnovakha bus wasn’t enough, today the ukro-nazi terrorists (the real, not imaginary ones!) blew up a bus with peaceful citizens in the center of Donetsk – the latest: 13 to 15 people dead. RT video: Donetsk bus stop bombed: Graphic footage from East Ukraine.
Meanwhile, I have gathered a lot of telling information from different expert and eye-witness sources. This information proves that Ukrainians don’t want to fight any more. Here is the summary.
In January 2015 Poroshenko announced a surprise mass mobilization of up to 200,000 people, including 60-year-olds, women and children. This occurred immediately after he went to the Unity Parch in Paris and after the Volnovakha bus shelling by his army. Read: Urgent! Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine and Ukraine’s Snowden: Whistleblower confirms MH17 was shot down by Ukraine.
Immediately several things happened, according to witnesses.
1. Huge lines consisting of healthy men trying to avoid mobilization formed in front of medical offices and hospitals.
2. Ukrainians were hiding from draft throughout 2014, as I wrote before. But now, draft-dodging is becoming an epidemic. People hide in cellars, change names, leave families behind and move to other cities and countries, as far from their home as possible.
3. Immigration to Russia has reached staggering proportions. What Russians are noticing with alarm is that, as opposed to 2014, when refugees from the Kiev junta atrocities flooded Russia, presently, the so-called maidanutie (those who are anti-Russian, pro-Kiev-maidan) are also flooding in to avoid mobilization. They are anti-Russian, yet, they run to Russia to avoid being drafted to the anti-Donbass ATO.
4. Kiev regime’s plan was to mobilize 50,000, and later, another 150,000 in stages. So far, they are only able to fulfil their quota by about 25-27% due to draft avoidance. Experts estimate that soon draft fulfillment will be down to 10% of the quota.
5. This morbid mobilization has been dubbed ‘mogilization’ from Rus/Ukr/Slav ‘mogila’ – grave. It has become known that Ukraine army acquired 80 hectares of land to bury its ATO soldiers. This information was freely posted and advertised on army site and all over Ukraine media. 80 hectares is enough to bury 160,000 people. The entire mobilization is supposed to be 200,000.
6. Despite such lofty mobilization numbers, even a fraction proved to be unreachable. Ukrainians write in social networks that they would rather go to jail than get drafted – it’s a 3-year sentence for refusing ‘mogilization.’ Advisors and experts in Ukraine are openly advising people to run away, hide, or, worst case scenario, go to jail.
7. According to the military experts I’ve been listening to, the sloppy, unprofessional, not to say, stupid actions of the Ukraine army attest to the fact that real commanders and army professionals don’t want to achieve victory in Donbass. Career officers don’t want to fight, as their heart isn’t in it. What can we talk about if the minister of defence in Kiev is a policeman. They couldn’t find a single military officer for this post.
This resonates directly with one of my early 2014 predictions that Ukraine army won’t want to fight, allegiances to Russia, old Soviet/Russian military traditions and affinity with the Donbass cossacks serving as a break. The reason is: this still is one people, one culture, who have one history – and it’s very hard to take that away despite years of falsified history and Soros/NGO propaganda. I said that Ukraine army would be ineffectual in the hands of the ukro-nazi regime. As a result of the severe unprofessionalism of the ATO operation Kiev regime keeps losing blockposts and villages to the Donbass self-defence. The Donetsk airport is the major win by self-defence. Donbass army may also advance on Mariupol, Gorlovka and Slavyansk, provided Kiev keeps provoking them.
Kiev army has been losing several hundred people a day since the beginning of their offensive. Losses ratio is 10 (Ukr army) to 1 (self-defense).
8. Ukraine soldiers sabotage ATO: This is an eye-opening audio of a web-chat by various people in Donbass. A man calls self-defense to report that a huge shell landed in front of his neighbor’s front door, but didn’t explode. They are worried it could explode any moment. A specialist confirms by the picture that it is indeed a shell of a specific calibre, but that the tip containing detonator has been removed. That’s why it didn’t explode. If it blew up, the neighbor’s house would have been gone. Another man joins to confirm that there are incidents of Ukraine army soldiers removing detonators and shooting blanks. There are also incidents of Ukraine army soldiers scribbling words “helping you however we can” on disarmed shells landing in Donbass. Link to the conversation in Russian from News-Front.
I warned about this last year – and here we go again. This site, News-Front (former anna-news), is very good, with lots of authentic hands-on info you won’t find anywhere else. However, because they are so good and therefore dangerous, they keep being deleted and sabotaged by YouTube, Ukraine and their handlers. So, watch any vids I link from them asap, before they get deleted.
9. In the end of 2014, as people relaxed to celebrate the New Year’s and Rozhdestvo, the US and NATO sent massive amounts of advanced military hardware to Ukraine. Alarmed messages were coming in daily that 4 major airports, including Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov and Zaporozhie had been closed for at least one to two weeks, while they were receiving huge amounts of military hardware from NATO countries. At least 2 ships – one from Australia and one from Canada – docked in Odessa port. Officially, they brought winter uniforms for Ukraine ATO army. However, the rumor is that there were weapons as well. Odessa also reports that ships from France and US docked with armored army vehicles being unloaded.
10. Donbass self-defence has just liberated the strategically important Donetsk Airport. Kiev troops shelled the peaceful citizens of Donetsk from the enormous territory of the airport. After the airport was taken, self-defence discovered large numbers of American-made weapons, as well as a lot of Polish-made items. Some of the dead left behind were Poles (with Polish IDs, wearing Polish-tagged clothes, etc.) Another group of dead bodies were identified as muslims based on specific anatomic details. Throughout 2014, Kiev touted its soldiers sitting inside the airport as ‘brave and invincible cyborgs.’ Self-defence now thinks that at least some ‘cyborgs’ were actually the muslim mercenaries who stayed behind. Several days prior, self-defense allowed everyone who wanted to leave before the final attack on the airport. All Ukrainians left unharmed. It’s interesting that prior to leaving, Ukrainians had burned all the corpses of their dead. For what purpose? To avoid identification?
Some information suggests that muslims, who look different, chose to stay as leaving would have given away the fact that they were foreign mercenaries. It appears that the remaining Polish mercenaries also stayed as their accent would have given them away as well. Those who remained were promised that they would be liberated later, when the general attack by the Ukraine army begins. As we know, that plan failed, and moreover, Ukraine army lost 2 more blockposts and a couple of villages.
Below are several corroborating videos and my partial translation.

POLISH MERCENARIES PROUDLY DISPLAY THEMSELVES IN UKRAINE:
German security expert, Michael Lüders, on German channel Phoenix-TV: there is information that 500 US mercenaries from Blackwater are fighting on the Kiev regime side. Perhaps there is a divergence starting between EU and US. It seems, EU is starting to understand that EU’s and American interests in Ukraine aren’t the same, especially when it comes to relationship with Russia. (As my readers know, since the beginning of 2014, I had been warning about EU needing to distance itself from the US, realizing that US pursues the goals of: 1. putting a wedge between Russia and EU, and 2. weakening Russia and EU’s economies. If they are finally starting to grasp that – good. But to me it’s simply mind-boggling how clueless EU politicians are if to date they are only starting to understand what should have been clear from the start. Of course it doesn’t help that EU politicians are utterly dependent on the US – LR) Russian translation and German original.
Interview with Ukrainian patriot, head of the movement Anti-Voina (anti-war) Viktoria Shilova, Dnepropetrovsk: Double standards of Ukrainian elites and the horrors of civil war. О двойных стандартах поведения украинской элиты, Виктория Шилова.
Fresh Interview with eye-witness Dima, citizen of a small industrial city of Artemovsk on the occupied by Kiev side of Donbass. The young man says that Kiev regime distributes leaflets to every worker throughout the city “inviting” people (he adds, like a wedding invitation) to appear in a certain place as their patriotic duty. When people show up, they tell them they have just been mobilized into Ukraine’s army. The young man also says that no one is planning on enlisting, that they would rather go to jail.
From my other source: Another creative way Ukraine mobilizes is this: whenever any man comes to a nursery or kindergarten to pick up his child, he is also served with mobilization papers.
More from the same young man: prices are up for everything, including utilities, housing, transport, food, gas, clothes, medicine, mobile phones. They are suffocating the population. All borders and roads have been closed down. People are very confused, don’t know what to do and where to run. People are very scared.
He says he is a former contract soldier, and can say that the troops occupying his city are not local. They get drunk in public, swear and threaten the population; they go to the local hospital’s maternity ward and yell/swear, interrupting operations. When doctors tell them to be quiet, they intimidate them. At night they engage in drunken shoot-outs next to public housing. Based on what locals overhear, seems like a lot of them come from Lvov, Kiev, Cherkassy, with Western Ukraine prevailing. When they show up in stores, they rudely shove people out of their way and order everyone around. They behave like occupiers, certainly not like part of the same people – the WWII German Nazi occupation comes to mind.
He goes on: everyone wants to be with Russia. No one wants to be a part of Ukraine, people can’t wait for the Donbass army to come and free them. Everyone wants to be a part of DNR, but it’s a little late for that, Dima says. (He’s understandably depressed, but he’s certainly wrong, it’s not late – this is just the beginning. The tide will turn eventually – LR).
Press conference of the DNR Head Zaharchenko and Ukrainian soldiers taken prisoner in Donetsk airport: ‘Ukraine left us to die, they need only cannon fodder.’ They were lied to and never told that the operation they were being sent for involved heavy fighting. Some arrived to the front barely a few hours prior to being taken prisoner. They were the only survivors in their respective units.

Tsarev: The Ukraine regime was seriously hoping that on 1/19 the EU would recognize DNR and LNR as terrorist organizations. That didn’t happen. The issue is very grave for them, because if ATO is conducted by Kiev without any terrorists present, then the gravity of the war crimes falls on Kiev; and as we know, war crimes have no expiration date. The new offensive in Donbass was supposed to disrupt the possibility of peaceful negotiations. It’s the main goal of the USA – not to allow Russia and EU agree on peace in Ukraine. This has been achieved – negotiations were sabotaged.
Besides, Poroshenko is left without any allies in Ukraine. Yatsenyuk and Turchinov are trying to unseat him and US is unhappy with him. Poroshenko wanted to attack Donbass to try to convince everyone he is tough. Meanwhile, Yats, Turch and Avakov are secretly meeting to try to create a narrative for blaming all problems in Ukraine on Poroshenko. Intel says he will be blamed for the ATO failures, grivna fall, economy collapse and shortages.
Also, the reason they thought this new offensive would be successful was because the army reported their readiness. They had program minimum: occupying 1/3 to 1/2 of the DNR and LNR territory; and program maximum: taking over the entire Donbass and killing all ‘separatists.’ The Ukraine military wrote in their reports that they knew that Donbass self-defence would not shell the areas occupied by their citizens, hence they considered obtaining those territories a piece of cake.
The data Ukraine military supplied to Poroshenko was that Ukraine had amassed a 200,000 army; that the army was fully re-armed. In addition to everything, the airports in Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk were closed down for weeks to receive massive infusion of NATO weaponry and hardware that was supposed to fully re-arm them for this offensive. After all this massive preparation, it turned out that no one wanted to fight and the army was unable to perform any serious military action.
There are, of course, terrorist battalions and nazis that are still fighting, but it’s not the war they expected. This is a broken up, confused civil war.
Host: professor of Georgetown University, the Potomac Foundation president Philip Harber (sp?), said that he was a guest at the ukro-nazi battalion Dnepr 1 deployed in Donbass, and he personally counted dozens of Russian tanks crossing the border. In other words, no radar or satellite could confirm this, yet this professor visually, being far away from the border, personally ‘saw’ Russian tanks. This professor now calls on the US to supply Kiev with advanced lethal weaponry to counter ‘Russian aggression.’ In other words, Russia sends humanitarian convoys in white trucks, while US wants to deploy lethal weaponry.
Tsarev: What you mentioned, our intel says they already have supplied all that. It had been delivered during the closure of the 4 airports.
In conclusion, the following alarming intel.
1. Responding to a question, I said in my recent article: “Problem is US and Ukraine completely lost it and are too dangerous; they can concoct another false flag in a jiffy. This worries me most.” And just almost as soon as I wrote this, the following warning by analyst from Kiev, Rostislav Ishenko, came up: Kiev is extremely desperate.The country is falling apart and they can’t win a war against Donbass no matter how they try. Their US handlers are unhappy with them, while the EU is waking up, doubting the Kiev story more and more.
(Examples: many Germans are openly criticizing Merkel’s position of subservience to the US; during Poroshenko’s trip to Geneva, he was met with boos and protests; in the most progressive northern part of Italy, locals re-named one of their squares ‘the square of the Odessa Martyrs’ after the Odessa Kulikovo Polie May 2, 2014 massacre – LR).
Therefore, warns Ishenko, Kiev will attempt a massive false flag in order to prolong its existence. This false flag has to be huge in scope, preferably, with thousands of victims. They already had MH17 with almost 300 dead, yet even that didn’t create enough resonance. They need something much bigger to again sway EU into a tough position against Russia. Of course it will be blamed on Russia and/or Donbass self-defence.
Some think that this could be a terrorist act on one of the three main nuclear stations of Ukraine: Zaporozhskaya – the largest in Europe, closest to Donbass and Russia; Yuzhnaya – near Odessa, with potential poisoning of the Black Sea; or Rivno Station – in the western Ukraine ukro-nazi/Bandera capital of Rovno, which is geographically closest to the EU. The warning about a nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine, compared to which Chernobyl is a tiny blip, has been circulating for a while.
However, Ishenko thinks that because a nuclear station explosion won’t achieve the effect of a lot of victims at once, it would be something else. I am thinking: perhaps a terror act against foreign diplomats in Kiev, blamed on self-defense; assassinating president Poroshenko together with other politicians; blowing up the Central Rada with all deputies in it; or a mass killings of various activists, could be even ukro-nazis, as some examples.
2. Second warning is that Kiev, in its desperation, may openly declare a war against Russia. This idea has been expressed by many in the Kiev regime. I personally think this would be suicide and a very quick one at that, for the Kiev regime. I don’t think even they are stupid enough for that. But for what it’s worth, this is what’s circulating.
My opinion: a massive false flag is a clear and present danger. I think everyone should talk about it everywhere in order to dissuade them from executing it. Some false flags have already been prevented because people made it public and their plans had to be cancelled. So, tweet, FB, share this info!

Poroshenko’s Agony: Bombing Donetsk, Re-Activating ATO to Save His Presidency Before Ukraine Elections
First, a relatively positive bit from Ukraine: after many prayers and a lot of noise raised by locals, Russian media, bloggers, and personally by Vladimir Putin, ukro-nazis were quietly hinted by their Western handlers not to touch UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Odessa monuments to Catherine the Great and Pushkin they planned to demolish, Kiev-Pecherskaya Lavra, as well as the various Russian churches they wanted to take over. Believe me, they wanted to, but before the upcoming Rada elections it wouldn’t look very good. This time the whole world was watching and that stopped the madness. But the danger is still clear and present: until a semblance of law and order is restored on the territory so far referred to as Ukraine, until the darkest ukro-nazi and criminal elements are disarmed and brought to justice, they can continue committing acts of vandalism when no one’s expecting it. People have to be very vigilant. Winter is coming and no one can predict how much crazier they all can get when the country starts seriously freezing and starving!

1. Dear readers, in the past several months I have been traveling the world. Due to life changes I’ll talk about in the future, I am now deciding where to relocate. I’ll be returning to the US for the holidays. So far, I’ve been keeping up with my posts and reader comments from the road. Going forward, I am looking forward to creating and publishing many more interesting videos, articles and Earth Shift Reports!
2. Today, I was scheduled to post Earth Shift Report 2: The Historic Roots of Russophobia in Ukraine and How to Cure It. Unfortunately, probably due to Mercury Retrograde and the eclipse, WordPress editor has become glitchy. When I was preparing my report for publication, it screwed up my formatting and the spellcheck didn’t want to cooperate. Therefore, I have to slow down and publish this report in a few days, when hopefully, the spellcheck and sanity gets restored. The upcoming Earth Shift Report 2 contains a lot of interesting, one of a kind intel, history, and juicy stuff not to be missed! It works closely together with my today’s post. Stay tuned!
Urgent! Ukraine Nazi Vandals Scheduled to Destroy UNESCO World Heritage Site in Odessa!
I have just learned that the Kiev junta government gave marching orders to the same traveling circus of violence that destroyed the monument to Lenin in Kharkov, and many such monuments around the country. You can see the video of the destruction and violence against those who wanted to reason with the crazed vandals in my post: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy. It has to be emphasized that these masked vandals are the VERY WELL PAID ONES. Who finances them? I’ll give you a hint – NOT the bankrupt Kiev junta government!
I am not the biggest Lenin fan, but he is as much a part of our history as any other leader, and I respect my history. Not to mention, it was Lenin who was the ‘father of the Ukraine nation.’ Before Lenin, there was no country called Ukraine – read all about that in the upcoming Earth Shift Report!
The Kharkov monument these nazis destroyed was the world’s largest monument to Lenin installed on Europe’s largest square. Dozens of Lenin monuments have been destroyed all over Ukraine. In the city of Zaporozhie locals ‘saved’ the Lenin monument from destruction by… dressing it in a traditional embroidered Ukrainian shirt, ‘vishivanka.’ Can you say ‘bizarre’?
However, I have just learned that the destruction is to get much worse.
Because ukro-nazis have lost in Donbass/Novorossia and are forced to make peace, and also because they are unable to extort Russian gas for free any more (and winter is coming), they are now waging a war against monuments. This senseless violence is an attempt to re-write history, to delete any links to Russia Ukraine has ever had, and to re-shape the consciousness of their young generation as enemies of Russia.
The worst thing is that Odessa isn’t, and has never been, a Ukrainian city. It was always Russian, given to Ukraine based on a stupid geopolitical mistake by Lenin. Same goes for Kharkov. Lenin’s move perhaps seemed politically expedient in 1922,during the formation of the USSR, but it is backfiring now. Lenin’s excuse is that Ukraine in the configuration we see it today was only supposed to exist as part of the Greater Russia. Stay tuned for Earth Shift Report 2, which will cover this in detail.
After the May 2 burning of people alive in Odessa and after Kharkov killings and demolitions, the ukro-nazis have intimidated the people in both Kharkov and Odessa so much that they are afraid to make a peep. Kharkov is the second largest city in Ukraine and Odessa is the cultural, sea and summer capital of Ukraine. Both of these places hold enormous importance, and they are correctly deemed to be the most dangerous for the ukro-nazi junta, as they are next in line for an insurrection after Donbass. By demolishing monuments dear to locals, the Kiev junta is attempting to erase the citizens’ memory and destroy their dignity to the point of no return.
But with Odessa, they may go too far. The two monuments they want to demolish are a part of the protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not only that, there are hundreds of thousands of Odessans with clout living all over the world. Odessans never stop being Odessans, whether they live in New York, Melbourne, Tel-Aviv or Berlin. If they demolish these monuments they will only expedite their demise and subsequent war crimes tribunal!
Many of my readers know that I spent my childhood in Odessa. I was born in Moscow and both of these beautiful cities are in my heart. What is happening in Odessa is important to me. Unfortunately, many people who had the smarts and initiative, who didn’t want to be a part of the Ukraine farce, left Odessa throughout the 1990s-2000s. I have no idea how many people with guts are left there. Odessa used to be a Hero City, the title it received based on its staunch resistance during the Great War. Odessans are lovers, jokers and traders, but they know how to stand up for themselves in case of an attack.
This is an all out attack on everything Odessans hold dear! Is there anyone left in Odessa to stand up to it?
Monument to Russian Empress Ekaterina II – Catherine the Great – founder of the Russian city of Odessa
The ukro-nazi traveling circus of chaos was given an order to destroy the remainder of what they deem the Russia-related monuments in Kharkov, and also, to destroy the historic monument to Ekaterina II, or Catherine the Great, in Odessa. According to my intel, they may also attempt to destroy the monument to Pushkin on Primorsky Bulvar. Both monuments are extremely valuable historic and artistic treasures.
Both the Catherine the Great monument and the Pushkin monument are part of the Unesco World Heritage Site, which includes the entire center of Odessa, together with Pushkinskaya and Deribasovskaya Streets, the famous Odessa Opera and Tchaikovsky Drive, Primorsky Bulvar, the Old Ratusha (mayor’s office), museums, Vorontsov Palace, the Potemkinskaya Steps, and Odessa Seaport with the unique Odesskiy Mayak (lighthouse).
The world-famous monument to the great Russian writer Alexander Pushkin, Odessa’s pride and joy! It faces the Primorsky Bulvar with views of the Odessa Bay, and backs to the Old Ratusha. Pushkin monument on one side and Catherine the Great monument on another, both frame the Primorsky Bulvar along the Black Sea.
You can read my posts about Odessa with many more great images:
It will be disastrous if they succeed in destroying the monument to Catherine the Great, and/or to Pushkin. Simply disastrous. Together with the burning of people alive on May 2 in the House of the Unions on historic Kulikovo Polie, this would completely ruin Odessa as a beautiful city I remember.
These monuments were built extremely well. They survived many wars and revolutions. Even German and Romanian Nazis who occupied Odessa during WWII didn’t touch them. To think that people speaking the same language and living in the same country would do such a thing… This is why those who do it hide behind masks. They are afraid of being recognized and brought to justice.
The problem is that in Kharkov the ukro-nazis beat to death a man who tried to stop them from destroying the Lenin monument. Other four people received stab wounds. People are mortally afraid to speak up. Only a very large crowd can prevent this act of vandalism from happening. But it’s well-known that ukro-nazis do their awful deeds at night, when people are asleep.
By continuing these acts of aggression, ukro-nazis are destroying what’s left of the good will on the part of Russians. I wonder, how do they intend to conduct the gas negotiations after this? A cold winter is coming.
The scariest thing is that those in the US and EU who were hoping to divide Ukraine and create the enemy state next to Russia’s borders, are partially succeeding. It is only the cool head of Putin that is still holding it together. Even I am losing patience. And if they do destroy the monuments in Odessa I had loved since I was a child, consider my patience officially lost!
I will repeat again and again: all this became possible only because the US and EU, with their bought-and-paid-for politicians, financed and instigated the Kiev maidan; because CIA/MI6, US State Dept, UK, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Brussels, etc., created and encouraged the atmosphere of lawlessness and all-permissiveness in Ukraine; because UN, OSCE, Red Cross, US, EU continue closing their eyes to the many atrocities of the Kiev junta all over Ukraine; because they IGNORE and refuse to investigate the overwhelming number of crimes against humanity, therefore encouraging more of them to take place.
I hold personally responsible for what is happening in Ukraine: Obama, Kerry, Biden, Merkel, Ashland, Soros, Western MSM, and all those EU and US political, military, economic and media clowns who financed, trained and orchestrated the violence in Ukraine, as well as those who pull the strings of the aforementioned clowns.
Karma is getting really heavy not only for Ukraine, but for all those from the above-mentioned organizations and countries who are allowing the new fascist state in Ukraine to proliferate! And karma is a bitch!
Urgent! Church Pogroms Planned! Another UNESCO World Heritage Site under attack!
This is directly related to above post! Just learned that on October 14, 2014 they are also preparing to destroy and/or capture various Russian Orthodox churches and cathedrals all around Ukraine. Crazed nazi right sector and ultra-nationalist mobs have been threatening priests in Russian churches and vandalizing the church property for months. However, this is something new. Tomorrow, they plan a streamlined action, in which they want to take control of all Russian Orthodox church property everywhere in Ukraine. Russian Orthodox is the traditional faith of the people here since about the 10th century. In fact, it was in Kiev, the Kievan Rus, where Christianity started on Russian lands.
Among other churches, tomorrow they plan to capture the Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra in Kiev, the seat of the Russian Orthodox church in Ukraine. The beautiful Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra is a 800-year-old massive Orthodox monastery, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Link to article.
An interesting report Ukraine wants communism not capitalism when it comes to gas. The interviewed, a political analyst from the EU Reporter magazine stresses that Ukraine’s demand for a super-low gas price will have a ripple effect on the neighboring EU economies due to dumping risks. This is in addition to the risk of gas supply interruption posed by Ukraine oligarchs short-sighted position on gas, as she puts it. She laments that the EU is concerned that as a result of these risks, businesses will LEAVE Europe.
By the way, would you like to know where these businesses will go? To Russia and China.
I agree with the analysis in this video as it concerns consequences for the EU, and with practical solutions, but I have to disagree with some of the conclusions.
I predicted in my early articles about Ukraine that EU will eventually have to foot the bill for its myopic support of the present Kiev junta. And here it is! The analyst is proposing that EU pays Gazprom directly, instead of giving the IMF money to Ukraine. I agree that this is a very good short-term solution! Perhaps the timid EU is finally waking up to the need for self-preservation after all? Of course it all depends on the EU politicians implementing this – and we all know how hard it is to get them to do anything constructive. The EU looks confused and paralyzed, like a deer caught in the headlights. But at least this is being proposed.
I wrote repeatedly that the EU is very foolish to allow itself to be manipulated and held hostage by the Ukraine yet again. Gas disputes have been taking place with frightening regularity, in all of which the myopic EU sides with Ukraine, thus encouraging Ukraine to continue stealing Gazprom transit gas designated for Europe. As a result of the irresponsible, politically motivated actions by the EU, gas supply was cut off twice before, putting the EU in a serious emergency situation in the middle of a winter.
Ukraine has been abusing its position as a major gas transit country, sabotaging both EU and Russian economies. Instead of setting the record straight, the EU, to the delight of Ukraine and US, has been supporting in that Ukraine, and vilifying Russia.
Indeed, Ukraine has been stealing Russian gas designated for Europe for the past 24 years, or for as long as it has been “independent.” Its economy was getting progressively more and more ruined as a result of gross mismanagement, looting by oligarchs, and complete inability to live in peace and cooperation with its neighbor, Russia, which happens to its largest economic partner and biggest supporter of the Ukraine economy. There is a great Russian saying: “to cut the branch you are sitting on,” and another, “to spit into a well from which you drink.” Essentially, that’s what Ukraine is doing in relation to Russia.
The schizophrenic incongruity of Ukraine is that it wants to continue living in communism as it concerns siphoning Russian gas, using Russian infrastructure for free, and Russian credit they never intend to pay back – but it wants capitalism when it comes to pocketing profits.
EU can’t in all honesty blame the situation on Russia any more (although, wouldn’t that be convenient?). But the EU is still failing to grasp that the US intentionally wants to sabotage EU economy and cooperation between EU and Russia. Read more: Urgent! Gas Wars: Why Is Ukraine Refusing to Pay for Russian Gas? EU is viewed by the US as a major economic competitor. US wants to prevent EU getting closer to Russia for both geopolitical and economic reasons.
US dreads the formation of the unified Eurasian economic space, including Europe.
These are the major goals of the US foreign policy and I talked about that in many of my previous articles. Yes, Ukraine oligarchs have their own interests, but even more so, they work as fronts for foreign interests. Plenty of proof is available, for instance, that president of #Ukraine oligarch #Poroshenko is a front for Rothschild/US interests. I may post about that soon – stay tuned.
Incidentally, you can read an excerpt from my novel The Earth Shifter: “Oligarch” for a telling illustration of how both Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs looted their respective countries. I have just posted a number of free excerpts from my books, which you can read in Excerpts.
Therefore, Kiev actions are the consequence of a direct order from across the ocean. Kiev actions come as a result of #Nuland visit to Kiev. More about that in my Gas Wars article.
EU is too slow to realize all this, and the fact that it has to work WITH Russia on resolving the Ukraine crisis – not against it. As a result of this myopia and paralysis (perhaps partially also ulterior motives when it comes to acquiring Ukraine), it is creating another crisis on the European continent with its own hands. I warned about it many times before. Hopefully, one day my warnings will be finally heard.
This one is truly hilarious (I laughed for 30 minutes), and more to my prediction that USA plays marbles – very badly, while Russia plays chess – very well. I just wonder where do they get the idiots who give them this kind of advice? Americans really, really, really have ZERO idea about anything to do with Russia.
Here’s the spread: US really wants to hurt Russia economically, but struggles to find a way to do so, as economic relations between the two countries are practically non-existent, thanks to the US own restrictions on trade with Russia.
The US finally found a way! The new US sanctions are supposed to block the usage of Visa card in Russia and by the Russian banks. Russian-issued Visa cards will not be accepted for payment. This should squeeze Russia and its consumers, right? Read the rest of this entry
