There have been talk that Kiev / Poroshenko will soon attempt a new offensive against LDNR. Kiev troops have been greatly fortified by the US/Canada troops, money and munitions (I wrote about it previously, and may talk more in the future).
A village in the Novoazovsky district in the south of the DNR lives under constant fire. Ukrainian soldiers attack it every week. Eduard Basurin, the official representative of the DNR army, who’s usually seen at briefings in Donetsk, is now studying the frontline dressed in protective gear and carrying an assault rifle. The DNR military expects a major provocation in the south which will be followed by a Ukrainian offensive.
The DNR (DPR) authorities put the finger on it from the start! Now confirmed: DNR leader Alexandr Zakharchenko was killed by a bomb made in USA!
The arrested suspected killer of Alexander Zakharchenko worked for the SSU and cooperated with foreign security agencies. The Donetsk officials shared new details of the assassination which happened on August 31.
The Russian Defence Ministry shared new data about the missile that hit the Malaysian Boeing over Donbas. The Ministry declared that its experts determined the number of the missile and tracked its path from the production. All information on this case has been sent to the Netherlands and the Joint Investigation Team.
A Mystery of Russian FM Lavrov & Gen. Gerasimov’s Visit to Merkel, Macron & Netanyahu (+ BRICS Summit & Turkey update)

I wasn’t planning on this surprise installment, since the power duo’s international tour was a complete surprise to everyone. However, this tour is a direct extension and logical follow-up to Helsinki & Putin’s billion-dollar gifts to Trump and the West. As such, it must be addressed.
On July 24 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, together with Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces and first Deputy Defence Minister, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, made an unusual tour of Europe and Israel. They jointly met first with PM Netanyahu in Israel, then with Chancellor Merkel in Germany, followed by President Macron in France.
Gen Gerasimov left, FM Lavrov right
The fact that the tour happened directly after the historic Putin-Trump Summit in Helsinki, and after Putin made what I call his ‘billion-dollar gifts’ to Trump, is especially significant.
All parties to the secret talks are very tight-lipped. The public information is very limited: it is only known for a fact that the topics discussed were Ukraine and Syria. Russian sources also specifically emphasized that Syria was discussed first and foremost, Ukraine being an additional topic. The Ukraine topic centered around Minsk agreements. This is the majority of the direct info about this mystery tour, but I have a few more leaks – read on.
It has been recently confirmed by the Russian Defence Ministry that it never before discussed Minsk Agreements internationally. Also, it’s historically highly unusual for the Russian military to combine efforts with Russian diplomacy.
From the above we can easily make a conclusion that such visit by the Lavrov-Gersaimov tandem is unprecedented, although a symbiosis of Russian military and diplomacy on the international arena has been highly recommended and is very logical.
This is because Lavrov/diplomacy has the channels of communication, while Russian Army holds the real technological and logistical power. If we are talking the sore spots, such as Syria and Ukraine, it makes perfect sense to combine the efforts. Not the least because the military of the West lately doesn’t listen, and often does the opposite of what diplomacy agrees upon. This, for instance, happened previously with Kerry and Pentagon contradicting each other during and after negotiations with Lavrov on Syria.
Another moment that comes to mind: it turns out, the leaders of major Western countries don’t get accurate information from their military and intelligence, and moreover, they are lied to by their ‘allies,’ big and small. Merkel, Macron, EU and US are fed constant lies and manipulative messages by small European countries with their own agenda, such as Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Moldova, Romania, Georgia, and now also Ukraine. Of course, EU/US leaders should be smart enough to be able to tell a manipulative lie, but it’s just too convenient for them to surround Russia with Russophobic neighbors. Therefore, if they are deceived, it is because they are allowing it to happen. But even that has to end at some point, and this point may be now.
It’s a separate discussion, which perhaps we’ll have in the future. Suffice it to say that it wasn’t by accident that Trump recently called the brand spanking new member of NATO, Montenegro (aka, Chernogoria, a splintered off part of Serbia), quote: ‘a small, but vicious country.’ Trump reportedly said it in response to Russophobic president of Montenegro trying to compel NATO/US into an escalation of conflict against Russia. This, per my intel, was intended by Trump as a warning for all other ‘new Europeans.’ It’s just possible that Trump, whose wife is Slovenian, knows a little more about the true history and current situation in Montenegro than a usual American president would (Slovenia is also ex-Yugoslavia and Montenegro’s close neighbor and relative).
Along with others, Ukraine has been lying and deliberately misleading EU/Merkel/Macron and others about the true situation in Donbass. This couldn’t continue forever. The reality check appeared well overdue.
An interesting detail, which has thrown the EU/German MSM into a new bout of hysterics, is that Gen. Gerasimov is under EU sanctions, and is banned from travel to the EU. The very fact of him traveling freely around the EU and meeting with Merkel and Macron confirms what a farce these sanctions are. It also, sadly, confirms how irrational, lost in translation, and powerless the EU ‘leaders’ are. German government explained that since the conversation was about Ukraine and Donbass, such trip was allowed.
MYSTERY REVEALED: WHAT WAS DISCUSSED
Putin and Russians were not kidding at Helsinki. As I revealed to you in previous ESR23 Installment #4, Putin skillfully used the podium of the Helsinki Summit to advertise Russia’s new initiatives and make a public call for action on Ukraine/Donbass and Syria!
UKRAINE: MINSK-2 and DONBASS REFERENDUM
Russian military never discussed Minsk agreements with anyone previously. But Russian Army is the best source of military intelligence and surveillance to help coordinate efforts to stop the war in Donbass. Therefore, the first logical thing to surmise is that if Gerasimov was there in addition to Lavrov, the conversation was about Russian military’s proof of Kiev’s non-compliance with Minsk agreements. Russians have ample proofs that Kiev is slowly taking over villages in the neutral gray zone – in direct non-compliance with Minsk-2.
Nothing Putin-Macron-Merkel have tried with Poroshenko and Kiev worked. It is clear that everyone’s tired of the ‘black hole’ Poroshenko. But Poroshenko just steamrolls over everyone and everything. There appears no way for anyone to reason with him, while, as I mentioned, the intel the West gets for Donbass and Ukraine is either biased or a direct lie.
The fact that there are no more Normandy format meetings that include Poroshenko or Ukraine FM, should speak volumes to Kiev. Putin simply refuses to meet with him, never mind the presence of his babyseaters, Merkel and Macron — and this should tip him off as to his future. But neither Poroshenko nor his Kiev junta cronies seem to get it. It actually appears quite difficult for the junta to digest that yet again Ukraine’s future is being decided outside of Ukraine; and it will continue to be so, until Kiev stops behaving like a prostitute.
As explained in previous ESR23 installments: post-Helsinki, Pompeo and others in the US denied that there was a proposal of the Donbass referendum. This was one of Putin’s gifts to Trump, allowing him to insert himself and USA into Ukraine negotiating process, and to help remold the situation in Ukraine, if he was really serious about changing the status quo.
Russians took USA’s denial to mean that they aren’t interested, and quickly took their Donbass referendum proposal to Merkel and Macron, which takes us back to Minsk agreements. Gerasimov, with maps, numbers and tangible proofs, can demonstrate to Germany/France that Kiev/Poroshenko lie to them, that the Ukraine army takes over the gray zone villages and continues to bomb Donetsk and Lugansk.
The next problem is that Kiev continues threatening to blow up the Crimean Bridge, invade Crimea, start a full-scale war against Russia, and in addition, Ukraine has been harassing and taking hostage Russian fishermen in Azov Sea. After a Crimean shipping vessel was detained and its crew put on trial, Russia had to respond and now all Ukrainian ships and boats coming to and from Azov Sea are being detained and searched.
The issue to ponder for Merkel and Macron is what to do with Poroshenko. This would be beyond the scope of Gerasimov’s and Lavrov’s agenda, but as a result of the visit, I’m sure both leaders of the EU would have to think long and hard what kind of monster they have helped create in Ukraine and what to do with this monster going forward.
The main thing discussed during these mystery meetings would have been the Russian proposal of the Donbass referendum, which is part of Lavrov’s task. And this visit also serves a role of creating a competition between US and EU in terms of Ukraine – a good move on Russia’s part.
RUSSIAN SYRIA REFUGEE PROPOSAL: EU, MERKEL & MACRON BENEFIT GREATLY!
And here’s another huge bonus for everyone involved. The reason Syria and Ukraine were bundled together is this: Russia is proposing a refugee solution for Syria, which benefits the EU greatly, while just maybe EU can do something for Russia. The resettlement back in Syria of Syrian refugees will spectacularly solve the migrant problem in the EU. It is another multi-billion dollar Putin’s gift we have discussed in previous installments.
It appears Merkel and Macron were paying attention to the Putin-Trump Summit. And this is why Lavrov and Gerasimov are there. Gerasimov can demonstrate with secret maps, numbers and tangible proofs the true situation with the liberation of Syria by Syrian and Russian armies (90% of the territory liberated, and the process is accelerating). As mentioned above: it is a fair bet that neither Merkel nor Macron have accurate intel on what’s really going on in Syria.
However, Putin’s refugee return proposal is something they would be very interested in. Something crossed my wires recently: EU/Merkel’s proposal to pay 6,000 euros for each refugee who returns home. It occurs to me that this isn’t a bad way for the Russian Army to make some extra cash.
SYRIA-UKRAINE RECIPROCITY AND COOPERATION SWAP
And here’s the best part: if all goes well, Russia can swap her help with returning Syrian refugees back home, thus alleviating EU migrant crisis, for Merkel/Macron’s cooperation on Ukraine and Donbass.
Of course, we have to be realistic. Merkel and Macron are still parts of the same EU and globalist neoliberal-neocon elites. They still cannot be trusted. They will still get lots of pressure from the Dark State and they are still confined by their outdated ideology.
However, with Trump’s and Earth Shift’s help, they are in dire straits on many fronts. The EU, yet again, confirms my original scenario of the Inverted Collapse. The pressure on both to resolve the EU refugee crisis is tremendous, while Ukraine (as discussed in earlier installments) is a suitcase without a handle they don’t know how to get rid of without losing face.
All this combined makes for a perfect storm, which gives Russia the Great Balancer a great deal of room for maneuver. This is why the Lavrov/Gerasimov tour is a brilliant initiative, and some results will come out of it.
No wonder Poroshenko and his cronies are extremely worried, watching with dated breath what will happen next. I’ll return to Ukraine in my future writings, but it is clear that Poroshenko is considered spent material, and next elections in 2019 may see a big change in Ukraine. Meanwhile, challengers and pretenders, such a Yulia Timoshenko, are out, and trying to recruit supporters in the EU.
HOW DO ISRAEL AND NETANYAHU FIT IN?
Gen. Gerasimov (left), FM Lavrov (center left) and PM Netanyahu (center), with Israel’s FM and Defence Minister (right) — Israel, July 24, 2018
There are more moving parts, such as Israel, Iran, Lebanon and Hezbollah, plus Turkey.
Russian Army has been working hard to keep apart these conflicting forces. The biggest issue is between Iran and Israel in Syria. In ESR20 I explained the whole spread.
In short, this is the close-up of Lavrov/Gerasimov secret talks with Merkel, Macron and Netanyahu. What needs to be stressed is that the Lavrov/Gerasimov’s 3-country/3-leader tour was organized very quickly, as a response to and continuation of the Helsinki Summit. This tour signals practical steps to the implementation of both Syrian and Ukrainian plans. Gen. Gerasimov is a man of action, which means that Russia is trying to steer the West, first US, and now EU, into action. Since both diplomacy and military are involved, plans revolve around complex negotiations, intel and humanitarian missions at the time of war.

Out of many pictures I could have picked to illustrate the true state of affairs in Ukraine between 2014 and 2018, I decided to select these.
This was the center of Kiev, the Independence Square, during 2013-14 ‘peaceful protests’
Ukraine Maidan: ‘let’s burn everything down, maybe our lives will improve’
Kiev Miadan: ‘peaceful’ ukro-nazi protesters get ready to crush with excavator the huddled together, unarmed police. The ‘peaceful pro-West protesters’ will also burn, beat, torture and shoot those policemen, who’ll happen to be unlucky enough to get in their way. The Ukraine police would become one of the first victims of the violent ukro-nazi Maidan.
Ukraine: ‘no life left’
Odessa May 2 massacre (over 48, by some accounts over 100, people burned alive)
Lisichansk: Donbass war destruction, peaceful homes bombed by Kiev
Lugansk humanitarian disaster: no gas, no light, no water — infrastructure destroyed by Kiev
Meantime, Poroshenko, Kiev junta and MSM continue trying to convince Ukraine’s population and the West that Russia attacked Ukraine and it’s all Putin’s fault.
Ukraine’s new JOKE:
They told us it will be a disaster if Putin comes. Disaster came, but where is Putin?
These graphs and pics show the truth:
Ukraine corruption index: corruption on the rise every year since Maidan
After 4+ years of the regime installed by Maidan, the minimum monthly wage in Ukraine in dollar terms is presently lower than in poorest African and Asian countries.
As the Bandera ukro-nazi greeting goes, now depicted all over Ukraine and repeated by Poroshenko and other officials: ‘Glory to Ukraine, glory to heroes!’
Corruption through the roof, currency collapse, no jobs, country on fire and torn apart by various forces, but if you join the ukro-nazi Svoboda, ‘right sector’ or similar organizations, you’ll be well taken care of.

Bridge collapses in the center of Kiev
Poverty & homelessness in Kiev, showcase city of Ukraine
‘Maidanutaya’, or a ‘pot-head’ – roughly translated as a ‘brainless Maidan supporter,’ with a typical Maidan kitchen pot on her head. It doesn’t matter if you are poor or homeless; in Ukraine all that matters is that you are a proud Ukrainian patriot brainwashed against Russia. If so, you’ve arrived! The only question is where?..
So, the disaster is upon Ukraine, yet Putin is nowhere in sight. But guess who is found all over Kiev and Ukraine…

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

According to some, this is what Ukraine’s map will look like in a few years. This is one idea… I personally think the map will look a bit different, but it certainly won’t be anything like it is today. Just give it time, and it may be a bit longer than a few years due to the fast-changing timelines, as a consequence of the Earth Shift. Will even the country’s name and the infamous ‘zhovto-blakitniy’ (yellow and blue) flag survive this ukro-nazi Kiev regime? To me, that is a BIG question!
LADA RAY PREDICTION:
Ukraine will continue rocking and burning up in fever, until the many injustices, clashes of inner economic and outer geopolitical interests, layers of lies and mismatches with reality are resolved.
I always said, and will continue saying, that Ukraine in its today’s form and substance, including its very name, is an artificial still-born creation, which could only survive and prosper under the tutelage and protection of Russia. Once it became separate, making it a juicy prey of the greedy local and international oligarchy; once alien ideology has been introduced, the whole thing began disintegrating.
It will continue on its road to self-destruction until, one way or another, all or most tensions and problems are resolved. Only this kind of solution will clear up the road to renewal and progress for Malorossia and Novorossia.
Today we are talking about one long-brewing issue, which was left dormant on the back burner for as long as Kiev and ukro-nazis didn’t touch it. As soon as this issue is disturbed, the overboiling of the old problems is bound to occur. The overboiling would be better for Ukraine’s many people, who are sick of this regime. However, it is very bad for Kiev, Poroshenko and ukro-nazis, who call themselves ‘Ukraine patriots’.
These self-styled ‘Ukraine patriots’ aren’t very bright, and through their actions, such as the one described below, they will continue pushing Ukraine into abyss, until complete disintegration, or until Russia is ready to pick up the pieces.
Hungary, Slovakia and Romania support separatism in Ukraine and demand self-determination for ethnic minorities
I had previously written about Poland, Hungary and Romania licking their lips and trying to quietly bite off pieces of Ukraine, hiding behind the Western and Ukrainian hysteria targeting Russia. This time Kiev, by accusing Russia of supposed ‘aggression’ and trying to pass more and more anti-Russian laws has stepped on the new rake and gotten itself into a very tight spot. The EU, as well as Germany/Merkel are equally in a tight spot, as lead defenders of Poroshenko and the Kiev junta.
Ukraine Rada recently passed a new ‘education law,’ according to which school education in the languages of minorities — and those are many in Ukraine — is banned, and education only in Ukrainian is permitted. As of 2017, education in minorities’ native languages is still permitted in primary school, however, all students past grade 5 are mandated to study only in Ukrainian. As of 2020 100% of pupils from first to last grade must study only in Ukrainian.
This news immediately caused an uproar in western Ukraine, where the following large minorities, numbering in hundreds of thousands reside: Hungarians, Romanians and Slovaks. In Odessa Oblast there also are numerous Bulgarian villages. Till now, they all had a choice of sending their kids to ethnic schools, however, gradually the number of subjects taught in minority languages has been declining over the years. There are also fewer and fewer such schools available.
Hungary PM Viktor Orban, a well-known nationalist, immediately reacted to the ukro-fascist ‘education law’ by denouncing it and demanding that EU demand that Ukraine rescind this new law as a condition to keep its ‘EU association agreement.’
To remind everyone, the infamous Ukraine’s EU association agreement was the pretext for the Kiev Maidan and coup 2014, leading to the ousting of president Yanukovich, war in Donbass and the loss of Crimea by Ukraine. Poroshenko proclaimed the signing of the EU association agreement and the accompanying 90-day visa free travel to the EU for Ukraine citizens as the crowning achievement of the Maidan and his administration.
Viktor Orban, who never minces words, announced that if EU fails to react to Hungary’s demands to protect the Hungarian population of western Ukraine, Hungary will block all EU’s initiatives in support of Kiev, such as Euro loans, further liberalization of trade quotas and any political or economic support of Poroshenko and Kiev regime.
Slovakia and Romania joined in the chorus of Kiev condemnation and demanded the same. These countries pledged to vote down any EU initiatives that would give breaks or afford loans to Kiev.
Furthermore, Hungary, supported by Slovakia and Romania, demands broad autonomy for the Hungarian and Rusyn populated Zakarpatska Rus, also called Podkarpatskaya Rus. (NOTE that ‘s’ in Rus and Rusyn is pronounced as ‘s’ in the word state, not as ‘z’) As seen on the map on top of this post, it is the western-most tip of today’s Ukraine, also known in the West as Transcarpathia.
There are about 200,000 Hungarians residing there, most of whom also posses Hungarian passports. This is because this area was a part of Austria-Hungary for centuries prior. However the core majority of the population in Podkarpatskaya Rus are Rusyns (aka, Rusins, Ruthenians). As you see by the name, it’s another way to say ‘Russians.’ I’ll tell you more: in 19th — beginning of 20th centuries the population of most of today’s Ukraine called themselves ‘Rusyns.’ The word ‘Ukrainian’ in the 19th century signified basically traitors to the Rusins, their language (an older version of western Russian) and Russian Orthodox faith. Later, the true history was successfully forgotten, aided and abetted by propaganda from Poland and Austria-Hungary. I explained in detail how it all happened in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE.
Rusyns have been very vocal about the fact that they wanted autonomy and recognition as a separate ethnicity, with their own language. They are recognized as a separate from ‘Ukrainians’ ethnicity by the neighboring countries, such as Slovakia and Hungary, as well as Russia and the UN. But Kiev refuses to recognize them as a separate minority, with their own rights, and insists they all are ‘Ukrainians.’ The leaders of the Rusyn movement have been either threatened or driven out of Ukraine altogether. As we see, Rusyns, as the core population of Transcarpathia, are ripe and ready for secession — they only need a push — and a support from abroad. In this case, the necessary support may come from Hungary and Slovakia.
This map allows you to see approximately where Zakarpatska Rus (Podkarpatskaya Rus) is located — marked in bright aquamarine color. I say approximately because it does have some discrepancies. It’s surrounded by Hungary in red (Wegry), Romania, Slovakia (light blue) and Poland. The rest of Ukraine is not marked here, but it is to the east in gray.
However, Germany and EU are vehemently opposing the autonomy and self-determination of these regions. Ukraine has to be kept intact despite the unwillingness and inability of different parts to stay together. Ukraine has to be as big and strong as possible, according to EU, Merkel and US. Why? Because as big and as menacing as possible a thorn is needed against Russia. But it is simultaneously a thorn against Eastern/Central European countries, such as Hungary, Austria, Czechia and Slovakia, some of which are starting to see the light and want better relations with Russia. Maintaining a permanent Iron Curtain between Russia and these countries, as well as entire Europe, is the No.1 goal of the neo-liberal globalist and West-centric elites.
Conclusion: there will be lots of fights and arms twisting in the EU in the next couple of years. Get your semechki and popcorn ready.
Many Rusyns have relatives on the other side of the border and many own Hungarian passports, in addition to Ukrainian passports. However, at large they prefer to be a part of Russia. The problem is that they are surrounded by the rest of western Ukraine, which tends to be ukro-nazi inclined and there is no direct border with Russia. In such situation, they hope to escape the clutches of Kiev with Hungary’s help.
Slovakian population has also resided in those parts since it was a part of the Austria-Hungary. On the top map, you will also find small pieces of south-western Ukraine marked as populated by Romanians.
But the biggest chunk of today’s Ukrainian territory coveted by Romania is the southern part of the prized Odessa Oblast, aka, Bessarabia (on the top map it is marked under the Russian flag). Romania also claims that all of Moldavia (presently separate from Russia Republic of Moldova) and the breakaway Pridnestrovie should both be a part of the ‘Great Romania.’ All that can happen in their wet dreams only, of course. I can tell you with absolute confidence that Romania will never get its hands on either Odessa Oblast, Moldavia or Pridnestrovie. Much more on these volatile issues and region’s fascinating history is discussed in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit.
What is marked on the top map as the territory claimed by Poland is the largest part of Western Ukraine. Poland has been for years publicly supporting Russophobia and discrimination of Russian language and culture in Ukraine, while at the same time secretly plotting to tear Western Ukraine with center in Lvov from Ukraine.
Overall, either quietly or loudly, Poland, Hungary, and Romania have been encouraging and supporting separatism in Western Ukraine, while voting for sanctions against Russia, for supposedly supporting ‘separatism’ in south-eastern Ukraine and Donbass. The double-faced hubris of this position is obvious: in reality they are licking their lips and waiting for the right moment when Kiev weakens enough, secretly hoping to chop off the pieces of Ukraine they can get their hands on.
It has to be mentioned that Hungary, along with Austria, Slovenia, Greece and Finland, has been one of the most vocal opponents of the anti-Russian sanctions, repeatedly demanding their repeal. Hungary also made a serious effort to keep its good relationship with Russia going, despite sanctions and EU threats. Same goes for the the other countries mentioned in this regard.
Poland, on the other hand, has been the biggest proponent and initiator of the existing and new anti-Russian sanctions. Many anti-Russian moves in the EU have been pushed through based on the insistence of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Romania hasn’t been that far behind.
Hungary and others demand broad autonomy and self-determination for their respective minorities in order to preserve the culture and the right of people to speak their native language. Hungary’s Orban even uttered something that till now was considered blasphemy and a taboo in Hungary and the rest of Eastern Europe. Ready for this?.. He said that Hungarian minority was batter off in the USSR than in today’s Ukraine!! Can you imagine this coming out of the mouth of an EU head of state?!
What Orban said is the real, honest to goodness truth of course, as I can personally confirm. But it is something no EU politician could admit to himself — forget admitting it publicly!
The demands of autonomy and self-determination for Hungarians in Ukraine caused a major uproar in Kiev. Foreign minister Klimkin lashed out by accusing Hungary of supporting separatism in Ukraine. Ukraine in general is in shock from the EU/Hungary/Romania/Slovakia’s reaction to the new law. They have thought that because Kiev serves as a major thorn in Russia’s back, EU will always look the other way, no matter what Kiev junta does. After all, EU conveniently didn’t notice any of the atrocities by Kiev and ukro-nazis against the peaceful population of Donetsk and Lugansk. That’s because Donbass is populated by Russians and Ukrainians. But an encroachment on the rights of those ethnicities they consider their own is a different story altogether.
In their twisted and dim minds the Kiev Rada honestly thought the EU would say ‘Thank You’ and reward them for the new anti-Russian move — because make no mistake, this new ‘education law’ is aimed against Russia.
And now we need to say a few words about the elephant in the room, aka, RUSSIAN LANGUAGE. The thing is, when the Rada was passing this already infamous ‘education law,’ what they were really targeting was Russian language and culture. It is the highly preferred culture and language for the majority of Ukraine’s population, despite major persecution. Therefore, its complete eradication from people’s genetic and ancestral memory is the ultimate goal.
It once happened the same way to Poland and to Germany (Prussia and beyond). But that was centuries ago, and this is happening in front of our very eyes. Problem is, no matter how hard they tried, they were largely unsuccessful with adults, who refused to stop speaking Russian. It is helpful that we live in the TV and Internet age, where much info can be found bypassing official channels.
I described in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE how in 2007 the Gallup poll inadvertently confirmed that 70%+ of Ukrainians preferred to read and write in Russian. This is when it was decided that slow and insidious means of color revolutions and election fraud, employed to elect the US agent Yushchenko in 2004, didn’t produce the desired result. It was judged that instead a violent coup d’etat was needed, using sold-out elites, criminal element, the jobless, angry and disgruntled youths, silly students and impoverished villagers. The preparation for the 2014 Maidan began.
We can easily point fingers here. Recall US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland bragging during Washington Press Club meeting in the end of 2013 how US spent $5 billion to subvert Ukraine. Top EU and US politicians were on Kiev Maidan every day, calling to overthrow Yanukovich. The names that come to mind first are Nuland, US ambassador to Kiev Pyatt, US senator McCain and Poland’s top politician Kachinski, twin brother of ex-president Kachinski who died along with 96 Poland’s top brass in self-inflicted plane crash near Smolensk, Russia, several years prior. This surviving Kachinski twin is presently called the ‘shadow ruler of Poland.’
Both then Ukraine PM Azarov and president Yanukovich were threatened daily with a coup and bodily harm if they resisted the Maidan and tried to make up with Russia. PM Azarov writes extensively in his recently published memoirs how he was personally threatened more than once by Nuland and US ambassador Pyatt, as well as EU’s then foreign minister Catherine Ashton (a UK native). All top Ukraine politicians, ministers, security services personnel, police and military commanders, bureaucrats and oligarchs were either bought or threatened, if they refused to succumb to pressure. The most ‘disagreeable’ to the West’s agenda for Ukraine were killed or driven out of the country. Ex-PM Azarov was one of them.
At the same time, since late 1980s-early 1990s, the children were targeted through a wholesale assault and mutilation of the educational system of Ukraine. If it didn’t work with adults, they needed to switch target to the next generation and watch how they grow up hating their own heritage. And that, unfortunately, did produce the result they were after. It is a well-known fact that Ukraine school books were created using free Soros grants, by western Ukrainians from Poland, Canada and US. This was done simultaneously with the re-writing of history and re-inventing Ukrainian language to make it seem as non-Russian as possible. Again, all that was done using fat grants provided by Soros, USAID, Endowment for Democracy and other Western NGOs. But the result was still relatively meager and localized.
As of 2017, despite urko-nazi threats, parents still continue to go out of their way to find a Russian school for their kids. I just heard from those who live in Ukraine and they complain that it’s harder and harder to find a Russian school in most areas, even where Russian is traditionally the ONLY language spoken, such as Odessa. In Kiev it’s nearly impossible to find a Russian school. But people still try.
There are bizarre incidents being reported. A Russian-speaking teacher would ask a question in Russian, but the pupil is required to answer in Ukrainian, even though the pupil’s language is also Russian. In some schools teachers and parents secretly agree on a work-around, such as the class is advertised as Ukrainian-language, but all lessons are conducted in Russian, for as long as no outsiders are present. In other cases, when teachers in class teach falsified history, parents at home are forced to re-educate their children by telling them not to believe what is said in school. Can you imagine the trauma and confusion all this causes to a fragile child’s psyche?
I recently read this story by a very popular in Ukraine blogger, who writes under the name Yura Sumi. He was forced out of the country after telling the truth about Donbass and Kiev regime. While he was trying to get naturalized in Russia, his family remained in Ukraine. They came to visit him in a small town near Moscow, where he resided. His teenage daughter didn’t want to go back to Ukraine. Parting, she uttered longingly, ‘Papa, why wasn’t I born here?’
Oftentimes Russian is marked in school curriculum as a ‘foreign’ language, and in many schools it is pushed out altogether, being overtaken by other FOREIGN languages: English and German.
But the resistance to forced ukrainization is huge. In the absence of good Russian language education, parents often take it upon themselves to teach kids Russian through the love of the Russian literature and through watching Russian films and cartoons.
This is why the real assault against Russian language was needed. The new ‘education law’ was aimed to target specifically Russian language and culture. But Hungarian, Slovakian and Romanian were caught in the crossfire. The Kiev junta hasn’t counted on backlash from Hungary and other EU countries. Kiev is afraid to spoil relations with EU, its biggest backer apart from the US. Poroshenko and Rada made an attempt to get around this by calling only on Russian language to be banned from schools, while giving exception to Hungarian, Slovak and Romanian. But that created additional backlash from western Ukraine ultra-nationalists, who want ONLY Ukrainian in every school. At the same time it caused a protest storm from Russia, and even more international accusations of blatant discrimination of the minorities’ rights. The UN was forced to get involved.
The pressure on Poroshenko to rescind this discriminatory law will continue from the EU and UN. Meanwhile Ukrainian ultra-nationalists and ukro-nazis continue pressing Poroshenko to uphold it. So far, Poroshenko, this unusually large, yet slippery snake, has been able to squirm his way out of tight spots, hanging on by his teeth to power. But the spot he is in is getting progressively tighter. He knows he must get re-elected as president just to stay alive. The moment he’s out of office and loses his immunity, he will be hunted for the rest of his life.
The example of ex-Georgian president Saakashvili, a man without citizenship, is right in front of his eyes. Saakashvili was stripped of Georgian citizenship, but he quickly and illegally received Ukraine citizenship. At the same time he was made by Poroshenko the governor of Odessa Oblast, also quite illegally. Late last year (right on time, based on my prediction made in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit), he lost his lucrative Odessa post and was stripped of Ukraine citizenship by Poroshenko, following a public row.
Earlier, US refused to give Saakashvili a green card and/or a visa, which in itself is interesting. The reason: US needed him to have no choice but to stay close to Ukraine and Georgia, where he could cause most damage to Russia. However, my prediction is that with his latest actions, Saakashvili is helping Russia, Novorossia and Malorossia’s future in the long run.
After being kicked out of Ukraine Saakashvili became a person without citizenship and stayed in Poland. A few weeks ago, with the help of US and Poland, Saakashvili boldly and illegally crossed Ukraine border. The video of Saakashvili’s crossing is incredibly bizarre to watch. Kiev dispatched police, armed troops and armored vehicles to the border to prevent Saakashvili crossing. Yet, he was able to do so quite easily, with the help of a mob of local ukro-nazis. The Ukraine armed forces didn’t resist it very much. At this time Saakashvili is roaming Ukraine, threatening to expose and to oust Poroshenko during upcoming presidential elections.
The video below shows how Saakashvili forces his way into Ukraine from Poland, with the help of his ukro-nazi friends. On the Ukraine side he was met by Yulia Timoshenko (remember her?), who nurtures her own ambitions to become Ukraine PM or president, and whose ultimate goal is to unseat Poroshenko. For that, she is ready to make alliances with anyone, including Saakashvili. In the video below Georgian national Saakashvili, turned the most Ukrainian of all Ukrainians, is singing Ukrainian songs with his western Ukraine supporters. Later, they’ll head directly to Lvov, the capital of the ukro-nazi Galichina (western Ukraine), where he again will be greeted by Timoshenko, together with Lvov mayor Sadovoi, who also covets presidential chair.
Ukraine is a farce and a mad house, so what else is new? We had talked about the mad house called Ukraine in previous years, but this tragic comedy just gets better and better (or worse, depending on how you look at it).
This related article should not be missed! Kiev Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar (Saakashvili, Avakov, Yatsenyuk and Idiocracy Plus)
And of course, all about Saakashvili, including my March 2016 prediction that he would lose his Odessa governorship post no later than in 2017 (it actually happened in the end of 2016!) in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit.
How easily Saakashvili crossed into Ukraine reminds me of another famous episode, that of Lenin arriving to Russia in 1917, across several countries, including through Germany, which was at war with Russia at the time. Lenin arrived in time to head the Bolshevik Revolution on November 7, 1917.
We now know why Lenin’s carriage was allowed free passage through WWI-torn Europe and warring Germany: there was a collusion between UK and Germany to let him pass. In Saakashvili’s case, there has been a collusion between US and Poland.
Saakashvili is being kept in his useful capacity as a short leash and a whip for Poroshenko. For both Kiev and Poroshenko it can only get worse, and it can’t get any better. More turmoil to come!
This is a map of Ukraine, posted in the streets of Odessa (Odessa for now is a part of southern Ukraine). Over western and central Ukraine it reads in big letters ‘SOLD.’ Over eastern Ukraine: ‘LOST.’ Over the empty space where Crimea used to be as part of Ukraine: ‘LOST.’ Over southern Ukraine: ‘SOON TO BE LOST.’ If anyone still has any doubts of the language spoken in the south and east of Ukraine — well, in most of Ukraine really — it is Russian, of course. As a matter of fact the text on the flier above is in Russian, not Ukrainian, which is turning more and more into an artificial language.

In WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOR 8 PREDICTIONS I was asked whether there will be a defining event during this GREAT EARTH SHIFT, and when. I replied that we are in it — inside THE event, that is. Multi-dimensionally, the Earth Shift isn’t an event, or a series of events, as we are led to believe by the sensationalist 3D MSM, and the so-called alternative press. It is a continuing PROCESS, resulting in a major change. Every country and every individual will continue experiencing this process in their own way, but make no mistake: we all experience it. The difference is those who are conscious, awake and understand my Earth Shift and Multi-Dimensional theories, will know that a crucial event is coming because they have been tuned into the process of the change from the start. Those who are ignorant and asleep will perceive the resulting event as a shocking catastrophe they never saw coming.
In the same WEBINAR 4 I predicted that a wave of secession movements, and conversely, unionist movements, will continue and intensify, and borders of a number of countries will change in the next 5 to 20 years. Some international clubs, country blocks and alliances will disappear or will have to go through a complete overhaul, while some new alliances and new geopolitical affinity groups will either appear or be reborn. They will gain momentum and expand.
It was also explained in WEBINAR 4 that violence, terrorism, the rise of the military and disproportioned use of police force are all trademarks of Period 8. They will continue and intensify till this Period runs its course. Much more was explained in previous Webinar 2 and Webinar 3.
For an example of terrorism and senseless violence look at the latest terrorist attack in Las Vegas, the largest ever such attack on US soil.
Catalonia Independence Referendum: Lada Ray’s Multi-Dimensional Q&A
(with Crimea, Scotland, Kurdistan referendum parallels)
Why Catalans voted 90%+ in favor of seceding?
The results of the Catalan Independence Referendum are as follows:
|Date||1 October 2017|
Per Catalan authorities, the crackdown and violent actions of Spanish police resulted in 700,000+ votes stolen. Guardia Civil was seen in many cases violently yanking ballot boxes full of votes out of the hands of people who tried to protect them. In other cases documented by international observers, the polling stations were simply blocked by Spanish police and people were unable to vote. The turnout would have been greater if such actions didn’t occur and the free vote did take place.
It was anticipated that the referendum result would be in favor of the Catalan independence. However, such high percentage of favorable votes surprised most. Spanish government caused the vote for independence to skyrocket as a protest against their heavy-handed approach. The more pressure Madrid put on Barcelona, the more the undecided Catalans leaned towards independence.
The result of the Catalan referendum compares to the Crimea and Donbass referendum results, where on average 90%-95% voted to secede from Ukraine. Similar results were achieved in 2006 in Pridnestrovie (95% voted to re-unite with Russia, after prior secession from Moldova) and in Gagauzia autonomy (in 2014 over 90% Gagauzs voted to secede from Moldova IF Moldova stopped being a sovereign state and was absorbed by Romania).
The result of the Catalan referendum is binding, which means Catalonia should begin making steps towards secession from Spain. But not so fast. It won’t be so simple…
I have discussed my prediction on what will happen after Catalan referendum, how it will evolve and how the EU and the world would be influenced by this event, in WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE VIDEO Q&A.
Why was there so much violence displayed by Spanish police / Guardia Civil? And related question: why was Madrid government so callous and unyielding about the referendum?
Ruptly video from Barcelona during Catalan Referendum Oct 1, 2017 – violent police actions (graphic!):
As explained in WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOR 8 PREDICTIONS, the government interference and armed violence is one of the traits of Period 8. Therefore, we have to expect continued, and in some cases (sorry to say), escalating violence in those countries that chose a violent way.
The Great Earth Shift is changing much of what we used to perceive as a given. Some countries and some governments simply can’t cope with the fast change.
The Spanish Rajoy government is a typical neo-liberal globalist entity. When it has perceived that the familiar and comfortable structures around it have begun disintegrating, the thin surface veneer of ‘democracy’ has fallen off and it lashed out in the most ungracious way.
During this Earth Shift we will continue observing how certain globalist entities and certain ‘leaders’ start losing it, unable to cope with the changes, which they, in their warped worldview, didn’t see coming. Others will forget about the pretend ‘democracy’ they supposedly were a part of, and will tighten their grip on power over their population.
The clearest example of being unable to cope with changes and losing it, with subsequent tightened grip on power without any consideration for the rights nor lives of the people, is Ukraine, including Ukraine’s 2014 coup and subsequent ukro-nazi Kiev junta in power, and an all-out war against the people of Donbass.
Why wasn’t there violence during Scottish referendum?
But what about the truly democratic and developed Western European countries, you may ask. What about UK’s amicable behavior during Scottish independence referendum? After all, London hasn’t lashed out at Scotland; no national guard nor violence was observed.
First, let me just say that London’s measured behavior during Scottish referendum was admirable and mature and it stood in stark contrast to the behavior of Kiev, Madrid or Ankara in similar circumstances. However, that said, there is a very good reason for that — make it three reasons!
1. UK, in its many years of experience of manipulating the world into wars, without actually truly participating in them, and many years of colonizing other countries where regimes were installed and quietly manipulated behind the scenes, has developed a very good system of quiet persuasion and geopolitical/economic manipulation. They are a lot more adept at how to do it behind the scenes and without violence.
2. Between us, I seriously believe that London knew the Scottish independence bid would fail, and therefore, they really could afford to play it cool. They knew the vote would be divided. All that was needed to be done was to apply some very subtle pressure here and there.
Catalonia is completely different that way. It was clear that the majority would vote for secession, and Spanish government simply saw no way of persuading Catalans otherwise. As a consequence, they simply lost it.
3. After the Catalan vote, there is renewed talk of a new Scottish independence referendum. Even if it succeeds, UK will continue trying to subtly delay and influence the situation in such a way as to make the secession a very remote prospect, or to make it legitimate on paper only. Just observe what is happening with Brexit — how seemingly slow it is, and who knows if it really is happening or not. Exactly as I predicted in Special Predictions Video ESR 12 THE FUTURE OF THE EU (BREXIT, TTIP/TPP & EU revolts).
That said, London may lose it too, should Scotland challenge it too openly. So far it’s not happening, and I don’t see it as high probability as Scottish politicians are treading very softly. For the sake of all UK citizens, I hope Ukraine and Catalonia lessons have been learned and violence can be avoided.
I can tell you that the vast majority of Russians, looking across the border and observing Ukraine madness, have determined that they choose the opposite: peace, unity and stability.
Another interesting detail is that Scotland is also quietly negotiating with the EU to be accepted as a member instead of UK, which technically could favor the secession vote. This is yet another reason my prediction from ESR12 THE FUTURE OF THE EU that it will take years for Brexit to take place, if at all, is being confirmed. London will attempt to delay its rift with EU in order to keep Scotland on board.
Why Spanish government refuses to recognize the Catalan referendum
The Spanish government can’t possibly recognize the Catalan vote. It would mean losing the richest and best-to-do part of the country, 20-25% of Spanish economy, 1/3 of all foreign investments and 1/3 of all exports.
Catalans believe they are getting an unfair shake when they get less back from Madrid than they contribute to the country’s economy. Without Barcelona, Spain will simply become a much diminished and significantly poorer state.
Meanwhile, economically speaking, Catalonia may also lose out from independence. EU already warned that independent Catalonia may not be accepted as a separate member of the EU, since Spain — an EU member — would never agree to that. Without this, Catalonia won’t enjoy free trade perks other EU members do, thus increasing the cost of exports.
But not all is measured in terms of money and economy. As I predicted since 2014, in Period 8 and during the Great Earth Shift, economy is secondary to geopolitics and social change.
As discussed in WEBINAR 4, this is the time of secessions, referendums and changing borders. Period 8 and the Earth Shift will see to it: everything not fastened well will be swept away, anything that’s rotting will be demolished, and new, better, stronger and healthier structures will emerge.
A few facts: Catalonia was the first to ban the cruel and inhumane bull fights, while the rest of Spain is lagging. Spain is a monarchy, while Catalans are much more progressive and they want to be a republic. Catalans have a history of standing up against regimes. During the 1930s Spanish Civil War Barcelona was the last hold-out of the Spanish Republic, while the rest of Spain succumbed to Franco.
Why did local police and firemen try to protect the voters?
When local Catalan police and firemen realized that Spanish Guardia Civil was attacking people and not letting them cast their vote, many of them stood with their people, protecting them from the armed Spanish police. As a result some of the local police and firemen were injured, others were seen on camera conflicted, crying and hiding their faces while Catalans lauded and thanked them.
This is understandable. These civil servants gave an oath to the Madrid government, however their conscience didn’t allow them to stand idle when civilians were being attacked and prevented from casting their democratic vote. For many of them it was a huge emotional drama and a huge inner conflict.
In Catalonia we just saw a demo of a rift between two sides of the armed forces, civil servants and police, which we may observe in other countries as well as the Earth Shift unfolds. Some local civil servants may choose to defend the population from central government’s aggression, therefore fulfilling their true duty, while others will choose to obey undemocratic orders and attack unarmed civilians. This rift is bound to occur in those countries that have chosen a violent way.
Mass celebrations in Barcelona, following referendum:
Striking parallels with Crimea, Donbass and Ukraine
We have seen this unfold in Ukraine since 2014 in the most striking manner. In the case of Ukraine the divisions were very clear from the start. Many of those in the armed forces and police who were against the junta resigned or took the side of the people. Many had been killed as a result. Some defected and joined Donbass self-defence.
Crimea demonstrated an even more decisive and striking division. Out of 20,000 Ukrainian troops stationed on the Crimean peninsula as of March 2014, only 10% or 2,000 chose to move back to Ukraine after Crimean independence referendum, followed by Crimea re-joining Russia. The rest chose to join the Russian Army and Navy and stay in Crimea, demonstrating very clearly where their allegiances really were. That included the supreme commander of the Ukraine Navy and almost all higher officers. Moreover, some of those who initially moved back to Ukraine with their families, want to return to Crimea.
Of course, the Crimean situation is absolutely unique in world history: during the entire referendum and the passage of control over to Russia there was no violence and no fire was exchanged between two armies. All Ukrainian military who wanted to move back to Ukraine were given free passage, and even allowed to take with them their tanks, ships and jets. In truth, Russians simply didn’t want all that junk. 😉
Notably, there were only two shots fired, which killed one person on the Ukraine army side and a Cossack volunteer on the Russian side. The shots were fired by a sniper, who, per color revolution manual, was attempting to create violence and mutual blame between sides. That attempt failed as the peaceful referendum and orderly withdrawal of Ukraine troops continued.
In Barcelona we saw what would have happen in Crimea, if Russian Army and Navy didn’t ensure that the democratic right of citizens to cast their vote was protected. But multiply that by thousands. There are reports that in Catalonia 2 or 3 people died, and over 840 were injured as a result of Guardia Civil crackdown. In Crimea the result would have been incomparably more devastating, if Russia didn’t step in on time. We are talking thousands of deaths — and that’s before Kiev would have begun shelling civilians from heavy artillery. The war against Donbass civilians is proving what Kiev junta is capable of.
The Kurdish referendum is yet another example of the same. There are at least 40 million Kurds in the Middle East. They are divided between 4 countries and are considered the largest ethnicity without a country on the planet.
As expected, during the September 25, 2017 referendum the vast majority of Kurds voted for independence from Iraq. However, practically speaking this is impossible, short of an all-out civil war. At this time, no great powers are interested in a new civil war in Iraq. What is likely to happen is that Kurds in all four countries will use the results of the referendum to bargain for better deals with respective central governments. Syria’s Assad, with the urging by Russia, already announced that he would be willing to grant Syrian Kurds a broad autonomy. Turkish Erdogan is so far unyielding. Iraq government will definitely be negotiating with the Kurds. As a result, Kurds will live in a de-facto separate state, keeping all or most their oil profits, but within Iraq. This will be the case for at least several more years. After that, more changes are coming and the world map will be very different from what we’ve known.
Also, an interesting thing to note about the Kurdish referendum is this: what on the surface seems like a secession movement is in fact a unionist movement! In this case, the four divided parts of the Kurdish population strive to reunite. In that, the Kurdish referendum is completely different from Catalonia or Scottish referendums. At the same time, it bears a striking similarity to the secession-unionist movements of Crimea (the most successful so far), Donbass, Pridnestrovie, S. Ossetia, Abkhazia and Gagauzia. In all cases, these parts of ex-Soviet republics wanted to secede in order to re-unite with Russia.

Engineering Feat of the 21st Century: Crimean Bridge Brings Together Previously Unconnectable Shores
The Crimean Bridge, correctly called in Russian Krimsky Most or Kerchensky Most (the Kerch Bridge), is nearing completion, and may even be opened to traffic ahead of schedule in 2018!
The Crimean Bridge connects something that was previously considered unconnectable: The Crimean Peninsula and mainland Russia, through the Kerch Strait between Black and Azov Seas.
This construction has already been dubbed ‘The Engineering Feat of the 21st Century.’ You may ask, what is all the noise about? Why is it such a big deal and why it’s so important geopolitically, economically, and as yet another step towards full Russian sovereignty and fulfillment of Russia’s destiny as THE GREAT BALANCER, DURING THIS EARTH SHIFT.
Right near the surface there are these obvious reasons:
1. The Crimean Bridge is a symbol. Of what? First of all, of the awakening and re-consolidation of Russia – The Great Balancer. The giant, which sometimes goes to sleep to meditate on the past and recuperate from previous ills, is re-awakening.
Russia’s role as the Great Balancer is paramount for this Great Earth Shift. Russia has to be at her best and strongest. The fact that such a significant bridge is being built is a sign that Russia is getting back into shape.
It is also a symbol that reminds people where they belong and what is right and what is wrong. It’s the bridge that connects and awakens people not only in Russia, but in many other places, including Ukraine (and those sorely need an awakening!).
2. It is already considered the most impressive sea bridge in the world. The total length of the bridge is 20 km. A very long and massive bridge, this billions-worth mega-infrastructure project, is being successfully fulfilled despite all the Western anti-Russia sanctions.
This multipurpose strategic project will tremendously boost the economical auto and train traffic to and from Crimea. This, in turn, will eliminate traffic jams, boost tourism to Crimean resorts and lower prices. A win-win for Crimea and all of Russia.
3. The bridge is necessary to ensure a complete infrastructure independence of Crimea from Ukraine, which in turn takes away some blackmail and sabotage leverage from the Kiev junta, EU and US.
I previously wrote how Kiev junta, in collusion with the Crimean Tartar Mejlis and ukro-nazi battalions blew up power transformers and demolished power lines to Crimea, leaving 2.5 million people without power in December 2015, in the middle of winter and right before holidays. Together with the Western sanctions, this was designed to cripple Russia and ignite a color revolution among unhappy Crimeans. During such confusion and/or color revolution, Kiev/Mejlis and their foreign sponsors — US/CIA, and at the time also Turkey — hoped to invade Crimea.
Russia immediately responded to the challenge by beginning an urgent construction of the underwater Energy Bridge to Crimea from mainland, through the Kerch Strait.
Those who masterminded and financed this mass sabotage, knew that Crimean infrastruture depended completely on the favor of Ukraine. Moreover, they calculated that due to the USSR breakup and ’90s pirate privatization Russia had stopped producing certain equipment necessary to quickly eliminate the Crimean power deficiency, such as underwater electric cables, emergency generators and portable power stations. Shipping also was a huge problem; they counted on the fact that the only railroad and only two highways to Crimea were built through Ukraine.
Again, as I emphasized many times before, ALL infrastructure was built on the territory we today call Ukraine, by Russia. It all began with the Russian tsars and industrial entrepreneurs in the 18th-19th centuries, starting with Catherine the Great. The USSR continued the development and building up of Ukraine.
What we know today as Donbass, with all its mining and industrial activity, was created by Russia; Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, and innumerable other towns, cities and ports were founded throughout earlier centuries by Catherine the Great or other Russian emperors, or by the Soviets in the 20th century.
Those who yell and scream about Ukraine being completely independent of Russia are simply usurious liars, who are eating through the last remnants of the formerly rich Russian/Soviet inheritance, which Ukraine was lucky to obtain as a result of the break-up of the USSR.
During the December 2015 power outage, as a result of Western sanctions, no Western company would supply electric generators so the children and the elderly of Crimea wouldn’t freeze to death. Russia found a quick solution to this: portable power generators, and even whole portable power plants, were purchased from China. Some of these were delivered to Crimea as quickly as within 2 weeks.
Russia also immediately began construction of the underwater Power Bridge through the Kerch Strait, consisting of 4 lines of power cables. The power cables were also supplied by China on an emergency basis. First two power lines were completed in record time, before the New Year 2016. The last two were built by May 2016. New power plants were urgently built in Crimea, as well. As a result, not only Crimea now has enough self-sufficient power, it actually has a surplus of it, in order to accommodate a growing number of tourists.
Along with the Power Bridge, new phone and TV cable underwater bridges from mainland were also built. As a result Crimea became almost completely independent of Ukraine’s whims.
Next, Kiev tried the ‘food blockade’ of Crimea. The same thugs, such as Mejlis and ukro-nazis (all banned terrorist organizations in Russia, by the way), stopped farming produce trucks from Kherson, Nikolaev and Odessa, and didn’t let them pass to Crimea. As a result, it wasn’t Crimea that suffered: they damaged Ukrainian agriculture and put their own farmers in dire straits. Crimea quickly replaced Ukrainian supplies with those from other countries, including Turkey.
This was an interesting twist, and here’s why: Turkish extremists, working together with Mejlis, participated in the sabotage of Crimea; Turkey had high hopes of annexing Crimea for a long time. There is credible intel that Kiev, in collusion with the US, planned to pass Crimea to Turkey in exchange for Turkey’s continued hosting of US/EU NATO bases on its territory. At least in part it was Turkish money that financed Mejlis and their various terrorist activities.
However, Putin had managed to successfully neutralize these activities and ‘aspirations’ by Turkey, in his usual brilliant chess grandmaster style. I wrote about all this in EARTH SHIFT REPORTS 7 and 13. Well worth the read!
And as I wrote in 2014, US planed to turn Crimea into its massive military/navy base since early 2000s. Preparations were underway. But then in March 2014, after the Kiev coup, Crimeans ‘suddenly’ decided to reunite with Russia — and what a surprise it was for those who know nothing of the world and other cultures, but think they can rule this world. I can tell you: in Washington, they still can’t recover from the Crimea independence shock… They really did think Crimea was theirs for the taking.
After all the above failed, Kiev junta and CIA had taken to attempting terror acts inside Crimea. Russian FSB was extremely successful and efficient in apprehending ALL would-be terrorists, along with their subversive equipment.
The plan of synchronized multiple attacks on Crimea from within was rather grand: they were preparing to blow up the Crimean Bridge, blow up power stations and poison potable water all over the peninsula, thus creating humanitarian catastrophe, shortages, mass panic and confusion. All this was supposed to happen simultaneously, in a coordinated effort. The entire, grandly designed plan collapsed when FSB began apprehending Ukraine SBU operatives involved in it. Apprehended were also some Ukrainian sleeper cells and Crimean Tartars secretly involved with Mejlis.
Therefore, all possible ways to sabotage Russia and Crimea had failed.
At this point, the West has finally understood that Crimea is a forever part of Russia. No discussion and no stipulations. The EU has been timidly talking about lessening or taking off completely anti-Russian sanctions. However, predictably, their big boss from across the ocean won’t let them.
It has to be also noted that despite the blockade and animosity by Ukraine, in 2017 alone hundreds of thousands of Ukraine citizens continued vacationing in Crimea. Similarly, hundreds of thousands also worked as seasonal migrant workers, since Crimean salaries (now that it’s a part of Russia) are presently 2-4 times more than on the other side.
In addition to the Crimean Bridge, Russia is also building a new railroad, to bypass Ukraine completely. This railroad from Moscow and central Russia goes around Ukraine and will eventually continue through Crimean (Kerch) Bridge into Crimea. This will resolve any remaining transportation issues.
But there’s so much more beneath the surface! Why is the Crimean Bridge touted ‘the Feat of the 21st Century?’
In previous centuries, there were multiple attempts to build a bridge between mainland and Crimea, through the Kerch Strait — the narrowest point between two shores. However, all of these attempts failed.
The Kerch Strait is a point of separation between The small Azov Sea in the north, and a much larger Black Sea to the south. People who had never been to those parts may think that Black Sea is a quiet internal sea, which should be pretty safe. They can’t even imagine how unsafe and turbulent Black Sea can be. The area of the Black Sea around Kerch is considered one of the most stormy and hard to navigate. Currents between Azov and Black Seas can be deadly and changeable. Winds are very powerful. This is why the eastern-most part of Crimea, the Kerch Peninsula, had never really developed as a resort. People flocked to the quiet and soothing southern parts, such as Yalta. Instead, Kerch historically served as one of the Russian fleet bases.
The first attempt to build a bridge between the narrowest part of the Kerch Strait and mainland was made during the Russian Empire, in the 19th century. Crimea was growing as a resort and vineyards, and more convenient access points were wanted. However, strong winds and currents overcame the budding bridge very quickly and the project was abandoned, although calls to restart it continued.
In the 20th century two most dramatic attempts to build a bridge took place. In the 1930s, the USSR began the construction of the bridge through the same narrow part of the Kerch Strait. The temporary bridge was built and began working. Joseph Stalin rode the bridge to Crimea, and later returned to mainland via the same bridge. The day after Stalin’s passage the bridge collapsed.
During the Great Patriotic War (WWII) Hitler decided to build a bridge to Crimea in order to invade Crimea from more than one direction. The bridge was almost completed when it collapsed and was carried away by the current, taking innumerable invaders with it.
After WWII the USSR never attempted another bridge. I do think that Khrushchev’s decision to pass Crimea under the administrative umbrella of the Ukrainian SSR was a huge geopolitical mistake. However, I’ll venture to guess that the difficulty and inconvenience of communication and transportation between the peninsula and Russian mainland was at least a contributing factor in his decision. The idea was that being under the UkrSSR administrative umbrella, Crimea would have a smoother logistics. Of course at the time, no one dreamed that Russia and Ukraine may not be together.
The construction of the new Russsian Crimean Bridge / Kerch Bridge started after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup in Kiev, and following the power-and-food blockade. By then it became abundantly clear that there was no reasoning with Ukraine’s junta.
In the 21 century the new technologies, unavailable to previous generations, are used to build this seemingly impossible to build bridge.
One of the things that was done differently: the bridge is NOT being built through the narrowest part of the strait, which is by far the shortest, but is also the most dangerous. Instead, a substantially longer, but safer area was chosen. Another technological breakthrough: the extra-long and extra-powerful pillars, which are screwed into the sea bed. The trick is, these don’t go into the sea bed straight, but at specific angles, which makes the whole structure much more stable.
Yesterday, the great news arrived: the main railway arch of the bridge was delivered and set in place. The creation and installation of this giant central arch is a feat in itself. Its length is almost 300 meters, and it weighs 6,600 tones. It was the very first time in history that such large object was pre-built on land, then delivered intact by sea and installed whole in the middle of the sea.

As I mentioned, the Crimean Bridge project is perceived as an important and meaningful symbol in Russia. At this moment, Russia’s most important music festival is taking place in Sochi. It is called The New Wave (Novaya Volna). At the New Wave, one of the best known Russian singers, Oleg Gazmanov, has presented new song ‘Krimsky Most’ (‘The Crimean Bridge’). The song is the winner of the ‘Crimean Bridge Song Competition’ and is written by a driver from Ivanovo, together with his children ~ see my additional info and video in this post’s COMMENT SECTION!
Listen up – a nice melody:
P.S. Incidentally, the New Wave festival for years took place in Yurmala, Latvia. This is a grand international annual event, bringing together new and established musical talent from many countries. At this international festival all songs are performed in Russian. After Latvia joined anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and began denying visas to Russian singers, such as the aforementioned Oleg Gazmanov, Novaya Volna (the New Wave) was moved to Sochi. Simultaneously, a prestigious Russian comedy competition, also taking place in Yurmala, Latvia, was also moved onto Russian territory. And then, another extremely prestigious and mega-popular international summer music and humor festival, called Muzikalny Kivin (Musical Kivin) was also moved from Latvia to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, also located on the Baltic coast.
Therefore, overnight Latvia lost multi-million Russian tourism and music festival business.
But I’m sure Latvia is doing just fine! After all, instead of the uplifting music festivals and peaceful tourists, a few hundred US soldiers moved into town as part of NATO expansion, due to ‘imminent Russian invasion threat.’ Surely, they’ll spend in local bars and (excuse me) brothels much more than hundreds of thousands of Russian music-lovers and beach-goers would! I hear US/NATO soldiers stationed in Riga tend to conveniently forget to pay for their drinks and taxi rides, so that at times local bartenders and taxi drivers have to beat it out of them. Fast karma?..

In today’s hugely surprise announcement, the Head of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexandr Zakharchenko announced the creation of the new sovereign state of Malorossia, to replace the failing state of Ukraine. The announcement was made in the presence of representatives of all remaining 19 regions of Ukraine.
Video with full Malorossia announcement by Zakharchenko:
Malorossia translates correctly as ‘Russia Minor’ (not ‘little Russia’ as some do). This designation was assigned to differentiate it from the Great Russia, or basically, today’s Russia. The Malorossia region within the Russian Empire was formed by Catherine the Great around central, and partially, western regions of what we call today ‘Ukraine.’ The historic Novorossia (New Russia) was formed our of southern and eastern regions of today’s Ukraine, also by Catherine the Great.
The proposed flag of Malorossia will resemble the historic flag during Bogdan Khmelnitsky’s rule of Malorossia. The national hero of Ukraine, Cossack leader Bogdan Khmelnitsky, approached Catherine the Great, asking her to accept Malorossia along with ancestral Cossack territories called Zaporozhie (hence ‘Zaporozhskie kozaki’ – cossacks) as part of Russia. This offer of becoming a subject of the Russian State, in exchange for military protection against the Ottoman Empire’s, Crimean Tartar, Polish, Vatican and general Western invasions, was accepted. What we now call central and parts of western Ukraine became the new subject of the Russian Empire. By choosing the name Malorossia and the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, the hint is made that eventually Malorossia aims at re-joining Russia.
Zakharchenko even identified the term: 3 years. During these three years DPR, with the help of experts from Russia, Belarus and other countries intends to form tribunals for crimes against humanity and treason committed by various Ukrainian elites. Zakharchenko has stated that Russia will be asked to extradite ex-president of Ukraine Yanukovich, to be tried in Malorossia. Others to be put on trial after the transition occurs are Poroshenko, Turchinov, Yatsenyuk and a long list of others. The crimes of Kiev and associated nazi battalions and organizations to be exposed, including the ATO and the genocide of the Donbass people, the burning of people in Odessa, and others.
Zakharchenko announced that Malorossia will encompass all oblasts of former Ukraine, excluding Crimea. It is to become a direct opposite alternative of the existing ukro-nazi state formed under the Kiev junta. It will be a non-fascist, free of oligarchs, democratically loose confederation of former Ukraine’s territories, with only the flag, army and federal finances concentrated in the hands of the state, and with a lot of power left in the hands of local authorities. The principles on which the new Malorossia state is to be formed are friendship and mutual cooperation. (Remember, these are the 5D principles!). As opposed to dominant around the world and in today’s Ukraine, exploitation, oppression and inequality.
Most importantly, The new Malorossia project offers the citizens of Ukraine a clear alternative: to be again friendly and close to Russia, something that the Kiev junta has completely denied its population.
Zakharchenko proposes the rule of direct democracy. The decision to join Malorossia has to be up to each citizen and each oblast of Ukraine. For that, internationally monitored referendums have to be held in each region, city and oblast of Ukraine. Let the people speak, the right they have been denied under Poroshenko Kiev regime.
Zakharchenko declaration implies that the new state of Malorossia is to become the rightful heir to the former, pre-Kiev-junta Ukraine. The capital of Malorossia is to be in Donetsk, and Kiev is to simply remain a cultural and historic center.
LADA’S 2 CENTS
It’s clear that both Russia and Donbass are searching for a new and more successful format for the future of the territory we so far call Ukraine.
I like the new proposal. It makes perfect sense, helps exit the dead-end Minsk talks. Via an electric shock, it awakens certain processes and creative juices, and gives hope to the long-suffering population of Donbass. It also challenges the West, as well as Russia, to respond and act. It also establishes the fact that Donetsk is a subject, not an object, of global politics and various negotiations. It affirms that Donetsk wants to lead, not to tag along. I like it, and I wish them all the success with the Malorossia project. It has a future.
Another thing that comes to mind is that this announcement has taken Kiev and just about anyone in the world by huge surprise.
But it wasn’t really a surprise. First, remember what I’d told you since February 4, 2017 in Webinar 1: Will Trump Survive his First Term? I said that US was preparing and looking for ways to quietly disengage from Ukraine, without losing face. Remember I described the Kissinger Plan for Ukraine and post-Soviet Space?
What is happening here, and what happened recently, as I described in: Moldova President Igor Dodon Issues Bold Indictment to the West. Ukraine update — these things are closely related.
The old borders and outdated geopolitical formats, which failed to withstand the test of time, won’t work any more. We are in the midst of the Great Earth Shift. Anything that hasn’t been well conceived, such as the slapped together controversial territory called Ukraine, can and will be swept away. New borders, states and new international formats have to emerge, and they are doing so.
I can also tell you that a significant chunk of those 2.5 hour closed-door negotiations between Putin and Trump at G20 in Hamburg were dedicated to Ukraine, Donbass and how to get out of this stalemate. (Read G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions!)
Warning: Zakharchenko announcement has already made a big controversial splash, including in Russia. There are forces who don’t want this to happen. But a push for change is needed — very badly.
Another problem: Zakharchenko hasn’t coordinated his announcement with Lugansk (LPR), which is not good. And according to some sources, it wasn’t coordinated with Moscow either, which is possible, but a little hard to believe.
And problem No. 3: remember what I said in G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions! ? Russia is not in a rush to be saddled with the destroyed territory of former Ukraine and to deal with its zombified population.
Zakharchenko quote: ‘We’ve been told by Kiev that we must return back to Ukraine. Sooner Ukraine will return to us.”
Recall my timeline for Ukraine turning back to Russia: by the end of 2018. I don’t mind if it takes a bit longer, as long as it’s done, and done right.

ORDER EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS!
On May 2 Putin had a phone conversation with Donald Trump, during which the two agreed to meet soon, probably during the approaching German G20 Summit. On May 3, 2017 Putin has met with Turkish president Erdogan. Clearly these two events are tied with Merkel’s visit. Trump and Putin meeting in Germany means the host needs to check in with both. In addition to the EU and German needs, Merkel seems to have assumed the temporary role of a liaison between Russia and US. Meanwhile Erdogan’s visit has a clear Russian gas pipeline / Turkish Stream underpinning, which is also tied to Syria. Erdogan’s message is (as I long predicted): Turkey’s direction is to distance itself from the US and EU and get closer to Russia.
On May 2, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has visited Sochi to meet with Vladimir Putin. The date was agreed upon two months prior, after Merkel’s persistent requests. Curiously, Putin found no day in his busy schedule other than May 2…
Merkel came to Moscow with several goals:
1. To compare notes on Ukraine and Minsk-2 negotiations, which – predictably – came to a standstill due to Kiev junta’s violations.
2. To make sure the construction of the crucial Nord Stream 2 was on track and to check with Putin how it could be pushed through before it’s too late.
Incidentally, Nord Stream 2 is a competing project with Turkish Stream. Both Germany and Turkey are in a competition who will get to build the pipe faster and who will get to transport more Russian gas.
3. To try scoring some political points before German elections, by showing German MSM present at the Putin-Merkel presser how tough she is on ‘bad’ Russia.
THE CURIOUS CHOICE OF THE DATE
It’s safe to say that Putin deliberately chose May 2. What’s so special about this particular date? Two things:
1. On May 2, 1945 Soviet troops took over Berlin, installing that famous Red Victory Banner over the defeated Reichstag, and officially ending WWII. It would take a few more days to draft the capitulation agreement, which would be signed on May 8 German time and on May 9 Russian time.
2. On May 2, 2014 ukro-nazi fascists, supported by Germany, US and EU, burned dozens (by some accounts, hundreds) of people alive on Odessa’s Kulikovo Polie. The only crime of these peaceful protesters was that they disagreed with the ukro-nazi Kiev regime and wanted to speak their native Russian language.
(Putin chose the joint Sochi presser to remind Merkel and German MSM present, that Odessa massacre went entirely unnoticed by the ‘democratic free world,’ no investigation took place and culprits walked free: PUTIN about Odessa Video – notice Merkel looking down.)
For the most part, negotiations were conducted behind closed doors. But the public part is very telling indeed.
As to Minsk-2, there was a surprising unity between Putin and Merkel, to a huge disappointment of Kiev. Minsk-2 has to be observed. There won’t be re-negotiation of the original terms, and contrary to Kiev’s continued hopes, there won’t be a new agreement.
Nord Stream 2 is another sticky point. Kiev junta, as well as its ‘friends’ – most notably Poland and the Baltics – keep hoping that Nord Stream 2 won’t be built. The construction of the second branch of the Russian gas pipeline to Germany will render obsolete the old Soviet pipeline through Ukraine.
The Ukraine pipeline is presently used for the transit of a significant amount of Russian gas to Europe, although the amount of transit diminishes every year as more gas gets rerouted. To this day, Russian gas transit is the biggest foreign revenue source for Ukraine.
Gazprom has long announced that after the current gas transit agreement expires in 2019, Russia won’t renew it. This effectively means the following:
- Russia plans to discontinue using Ukraine as the lead gas transiter to Europe – and nothing can change that. The only destinations to which Russian gas will still be delivered through Ukraine after 2018 will be Moldova and Pridnestrovie.
- As of the end of 2018 Ukraine will lose its leverage over both Russia and EU. In turn, US will lose leverage over Russia and EU by the means of Ukraine. And of course, USA’s and EU’s leverage over Russia and Ukraine will greatly diminish as well. This inevitably will change the geopolitical landscape. As I predicted all along, as it loses its importance as a pressure point against Russia, the US and EU will have no choice but to withdraw from Ukraine.
- Consequently, if Europe wants to receive Russian gas after 2018, it has to hassle.
Hence the German effort to ensure Nord Stream 2 is on track. German parliament has recently approved Nord Stream 2 speedy construction. The new 6.6 bln euros in loans have been allocated to the project.
During Sochi visit Merkel confirmed that Germany is fully on board regarding Nord Stream 2 by hinting that EU regulations would slow down the construction and that they should not apply to this pipeline.
Based on the above, you’d think that Putin and Merkel were the best of pals. Putin confirmed that Germany was Russia’s leading trade partner No. 2, after China. Putin also said that the trade volume between Russia and Germany grew by 43% since last year.
Merkel piped in by saying that there are differences, but dialogue is the only way to understand each other’s position.
Where did all the talk about punishing and isolating Russia go? Where are those anti-Russian sanctions? As I predicted since 2014, ‘They’ll huff and puff for a couple of years, and then everything will get back to normal – just like it happened after 2008 Georgia – S.Ossetia war.’ I also said that the appearance of the sanctions will stay, while in reality business and trade will go on, bypassing them.
Predictions on track: 2 years after 2014, Russian trade with Germany is suddenly up by 43%. Let’s also recall that Saakashvili of Georgia was out of his presidency 2 years after he attacked S.Ossetia, and that Abkhazia and S.Ossetia would never return to Georgia. Ukraine is following closely in Georgia’s tracks.
VIDEO: Putin – Merkel joint presser, Sochi, May 2, 2017 (ENG translation)
The political part of the meeting had an entirely different tone. Merkel dragged (excuse me, brought) with her to Sochi an entire entourage of ‘journalists’ representing German MSM. The questions they asked during joint presser can only be characterised as aggressive in their ignorance and dumbness – just confirming a sorry state of the Western MSM. Listen to the questions and Putin and Merkel answers on video above.
Question from a German journalist, ‘Why did Russia interfere in US elections and is Merkel afraid of Russian interference in German election?’
Putin’s exceedingly patient and diplomatic reply: Russia never interfered in other countries’ internal affairs. The opposite is true for the West: it constantly interferes in Russian affairs. Further, Putin explained that allegations of Russian interference in the US elections have never been confirmed; it was just a rumor spread for USA’s internal political reasons; therefore, the German journalist’s assumption of Russia’s interference in German elections is based on a rumor.
Another German MSM representative called the Donbass people ‘separatists,’ to which Putin replied that the civil war and Donbass catastrophe are consequences of an illegal coup and illegal power garb in Kiev. It was Kiev that attacked the people of Donbass, forcing them to defend themselves. Putin also expressed his hope that German MSM would not twist his words and that it will have anough common dicency to publish his answer.
Merkel replied that Germany considers the Kiev authorities to be ‘legal and democratically elected.’
Merkel has made more embarrassing remarks. She implored Putin to ‘look into the reported violations of the rights of minorities,’ namely, gays in Chechnya and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Then she decided to lecture Putin on human rights. Per Frau Merkel, Russian authorities were not as gentle and nice to protesters as they should’ve been.
Putin did the absolutely correct thing by diplomatically reminding Merkel that the Russian law enforcement are gentlemen of the highest caliber compared to their Western counterparts. PUTIN: “In Europe they have no qualms about indiscriminate use of tear gas, water cannons and batons to disperse demonstrators.”

P.S. There is one more important reason May 2 was chosen for Merkel’s visit. On May 2 people in Odessa and all over the world commemorated the 3rd anniversary of the Odessa tragedy. Per reports, ahead of May 2 Poroshenko was in a frantic state, admonishing his law enforcement to make absolutely sure no ukro-nazis attack citizens attending the commemorative events. Such attacks are a regular occurrence in today’s Ukraine.
Let me reveal to you what went on behind the scenes: Poroshenko and Kiev were warned by Germany to make sure nothing happens that could look bad for Merkel during her Russian visit. Any violence against peacefully mourning citizens would confirm that Kiev junta is a terrorist regime. If any provocation took place in Odessa, Putin would have a terrific opportunity to rub Merkel’s nose in it.
Therefore, by choosing May 2, Putin allowed the people of Odessa to mourn and commemorate their friends and family in peace.

Ex-Russian Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov murdered in the center of Kiev
Earlier today, March 23, 2017, ex-Russian Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov was gunned down in the center of Kiev, next to the luxury hotel Premier Palace. Voronenkov died on site. His bodyguard was wounded by the gunman but was able to shoot him in return. According to first info from Kiev, both wounded gunman and bodyguard were taken to the hospital.
The curious thing was that the name of the killer wasn’t made public for a while, probably because the Kiev authorities didn’t know how to explain that he was a member of Ukraine’s National Guard. Initially, it was only said that he was from Dnepropetrovsk Oblast. Later it became known that this member of the armed forces of Ukraine was also a serial criminal with several violent crimes to his name. There are many questions here, such as: how was he allowed to join National Guard with this kind of history?
Update 3/25/17: Predictably, Kiev authorities announced that Voronenkov killer died in the hospital and that interrogating him wasn’t possible.
Russia 24 video detailing Voronenkov killing:
Voronenkov and Maksakova – fugitives from justice
In the past two years a very thorough public investigation of alleged corruption and irregularities in the medium-to-high echelons of the Russian power has been conducted. It is safe to say that the majority of charges announced publicly in 2015-16 were preceded by several years of investigations and data collection. As a result of probes, several regional governors were fired, resigned or jailed, major fraud and embezzlement schemes were uncovered, certain high profile police and Minister of Economy Ulyukaev were sent to prison.
This major op was preceded by a complete restructuring and overhaul of Russian police and the creation of RosGvardia (equivalent of National Guard).
Several months ago Denis Voronenkov and his wife, Maria Maksakova, both ex-Russian Duma deputies, fled Russia. The details are a bit sketchy, but my intel says that Voronenkov was under investigation on charges related to financial fraud and embezzlement. Voronenkov, ex-deputy for the Communist Party (oh, irony) was allegedly implicated in certain racketeering and shady business dealings since 1990s, and left behind a string of enemies. His wife Maksakova is an ex-deputy from a different party and ex-singer. She may have been involved with his schemes, although it doesn’t appear she was under investigation.
Several months ago, Voronenkov and Maksakova suddenly disappeared and re-emerged in Kiev. Their hasty retreat from Russia was a total surprise for their friends and colleagues.
The way I see it, someone tipped them off about secret FSB investigation and they were able to escape ahead of an arrest.
In Ukraine they were gladly picked up by the Kiev junta as ‘political refugees and fighters against bad Putin.’ SBU worked with them for a while, and per extensive intel, squeezed out whatever they knew, which probably wasn’t much. Consequently, SBU lost interest in them quickly enough.
Another interesting detail: Voronenkov decided to style himself as Putin’s oppositioner and political fighter, although charges against him were criminal. Upon entry, he received Ukrainian citizenship, which automatically stripped him of Russian citizenship. He probably thought that this would protect him against any demands for extradition to Russia.
Meanwhile, his wife Maksakova never applied for Ukrainian citizenship and retained her Russian citizenship. It has also turned out that she has dual citizenship: that of Germany.
When Voronenkov and Maksakova first appeared in Kiev, a rumor floated in Ukraine’s blogging circles that they would be hyped up by Kiev as political refugees and fighters against the ‘Putin regime.’ The bloggers predicted that after SBU had utilized Voronenkov for all they could and after his notoriety in Ukraine reached its pinnacle, he would be martyred by SBU, while the blame would be put on Russia. This prediction turned out to be right on the money.
While in Kiev, Voronenkov constantly gave interviews to Ukraine MSM about “bad Russia,” persistently alleging that “any moment he could be killed by Putin.” Apparently he was not bright enough to figure out that he thus styled himself as a perfect sacrificial lamb. It was as if he painted a big target across his chest with words, “Kill me so you could vilify Russia and Putin.”
Why was he martyred now? What’s so special about this timing? And who benefits?
It is more than clear that of all parties Russia benefits the least. FSB is a million times more efficient and professional than Ukraine’s SBU. It doesn’t need to gun someone down in the middle of a street, to the accompaniment of a risky scandal. Moreover, if Voronenkov was in any way important and did indeed possess any sort of secret info, FSB could have acted right away, not months later.
Who benefits the most? It is the Kiev junta and Poroshenko. Correction, I should say: ‘who thinks they can benefit?’ because my prediction is, this false flag will backfire. There are a number of scandals exploding simultaneously in Ukraine, and they spell disaster for Poroshenko and his government.
There is a word that ukro-nazi parties and battalions threatened Voronenkov and Maksakova with retribution because they voted for Crimea’s reunification with Russia. Just imagine the irony!
For this reason it was natural to use a patsy who happens to be ukro-nazi sympathiser as a gunman.
However, the real puppet masters are in Kiev and across the big pond. The reason they needed to act quickly is banal: there are so many huge blows the Kiev junta is sustaining that they have lost any perspective and sanity, if there indeed was any.
Their masters across the ocean either left them hanging or don’t really know what to do with them. Poroshenko and Kiev government must somehow distract people in Ukraine and abroad from multiple scandals and problems.
- Blockade of Donbass, which has resulted in dozens of factory shut-downs, power shortages, unemployment and risk of nuclear power plant implosions.
- Attacks and Kiev sanctions against Russian banks.
- Return Russian ban on money transfers to Ukraine. Read my article: Lada Ray’s Ukraine Update: Russian Duma Bans Money Transfers to Ukraine.
- Russia’s recognition of LDPR passports, which is a major humiliation for Kiev. It is tremendous propaganda for LDPR and against ukro-nazi Kiev regime. Read DPR ultimatum to oligarchs: Pay taxes or nationalization. Russia recognizes LDPR passports; to introduce visa regime for Ukraine.
But there is more! Yet another reason is to distract the world, especially Europeans, from the unfolding Eurovision scandal.
Welcome to Kiev Eurovision – be sure to wear your bulletproof vest!
World’s largest song contest, Eurovision 2017, will take place in Ukraine, following the scandalous win in 2016 of a Crimean Tartar/Ukrainian singer Jamala. There had been a lot of doubt Kiev would be able to host the event adequately and on time. Yet, for political reasons European organizers allowed Kiev to go ahead with the show. I’ll leave aside the merits of Eurovision as a contest. In truth, I think it’s extremely subpar. It has also been turned into a hysterical political farce, when singers aren’t judged on merit but propelled forward or held back by politically charged juries, based on the agenda of the West.
Voices sounded in Russia for years to pull out of Eurovision; these voices were especially persistent this year. Kiev continuously threatened to ban Russian representative – in violation of contest rules. Still, Russia decided to send a singer, a young, severely handicapped woman in a wheelchair with a beautiful voice, Yulia Samoylova. Among other achievements, Yulia sang at the opening of Sochi Paralympics. Yulia may have a very short time to live and she has sacrificed a lot to prepare for the contest. For this courageous young woman this is a huge dream and only chance to participate in a major international event, something that will fill her heart with joy for the rest of her short life.
Yulia Samoylova song – Flame Is Burning (Russia) Eurovision 2017 entry
A couple of days ago Kiev announced that Yulia Samoylova is banned from Eurovision contest and from entry into Ukraine for 5 years because she recently performed in Crimea. Despite gross violation of the law, OSCE has declared they see no problem. The organizers of Eurovision are trying to bury the scandal, while Western MSM has collectively developed sudden blindness.
I’ve just recalled the out-of-this-world howling that took place before the Sochi Olympics about alleged gays’ rights violations in Russia. In response, Russians went out of their way to welcome everyone, including gays, who were parading around Sochi to the welcoming smiles of their Russian hosts.
Just imagine if a cripple in a wheelchair was denied participation in an international event in Russia. The stink from the ‘civilized world’ would have been heard for years. Here, not a single voice of any European ‘human rights’ or ‘handicapped defense’ organization. Complete silence. Where are petitions, protests and boycott of Kiev Eurovision?
In addition, Kiev is banning Armenian participant because she also performed in Crimea. Despite the attempts to hush the scandal, it seems to be growing and gathering steam, both in Ukraine and abroad. Kiev needs to distract the world from this scandal. In their mind it appears to be a good idea to kill Voronenkov and then blame it on Russia.
I promised to tell you how it would backfire. Killing someone in the very center of Kiev, where the country’s richest reside and posh hotels are located, shortly before Eurovision… Not a very good advertisement for the foreign guests. Incidentally, Premier Palace, the hotel where Voronenkov was killed, is reportedly booked by a large number of Eurovision guests and participants.
In other words, welcome to Kiev Eurovision! Make sure you bring your guns and bulletproof vests!
Why choosing Yulia Samoylova was genius
This isn’t the focus of this report, but let me just tell you briefly that choosing Yulia Samoylova for Kiev Eurovision was a stroke of genius, and I didn’t expect any less of Russia. Apart from Yulia’s obvious gift, she is a great choice because no matter what Kiev junta does, they lose. If they ban her, the aftertaste will linger for a long time, regardless of how much they try to hush it up, and the true colors of the Kiev regime will become obvious even to those in the EU who are in complete denial. This will continue the process of the US/EU distancing from Kiev, accompanied by a gradual withdrawal of support. If Yulia Samoylova is allowed to compete, the controversy created by Kiev has made her so popular that I won’t be surprised if she wins. That will be a pinnacle of humiliation for the Russophobic Kiev junta and ukro-nazis.
And last and most important reason for the Voronenkov false flag…
Trump to begin financial audit of the Poroshenko government
As predicted, Trump is sending signals that he wants to drop Ukraine like an old potato. The Kissinger Plan is in effect. Learn all about the secret Kissinger Plan in LADA RAY WEBINAR WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
EU is busy with own problems and can’t wait to take off anti-Russian sanctions. Kiev tries everything to persuade Europe to keep those sanctions for as long as possible.
How does Kiev benefit? They don’t. Kiev junta consists of petty people; they do it simply out of spite. In their small minds they must do it to keep Russia down.
This intel is from Viktoria Shilova, ex-Dnepropetrovsk deputy, leader of the all-Ukraine AntiWar movement and leader of Ukraine’s Social Party:
Trump has authorized a comprehensive audit of all those billions US spent on ‘subverting’ Ukraine. This includes whatever Nuland, Clinton, Kerry, Biden, CIA and Obama ‘invested’ in regime change in Ukraine, US taxpayer money that went to train Ukraine media, NGOs, ukro-nazi battalions in Western Ukraine, to develop anti-Russian propaganda, payoffs to politicians and military. The number being floated is about $10 billion. There is a suspicion that most of it was stolen.
Poroshenko, Kiev junta and all those who got fat on Ukraine’s tragedy know very well where this money is. They are trying very hard to distract the world and to, yet again, redirect the US and EU attention towards ‘bad Russia.’ It worked before. But this time, it will backfire.

DPR ultimatum to oligarchs: Pay taxes or nationalization. Russia recognizes LDPR passports; to introduce visa regime for Ukraine
The events surrounding Ukraine and DLPR are continuing to heat up and accelerate. Many interesting events are also taking place in the post-Soviet space and all over Europe. I promised you all a new Earth Shift Report on Ukraine. However, I’ve decided not to publish it, after all. There are many big projects I am working on, including my book THE PUTIN ENIGMA. Completing and publishing my book is my first priority this year.
Therefore, for the lack of time, instead of an ESR I am offering you a series of free articles and videos on Ukraine and Donbass. The short list of all recent pieces is at the end of this article. For more Ukraine/DLPR related pieces, including the ones I wrote between the beginning of 2014 – end of 2016, go to CATEGORIES: Russia and Ukraine on the right navigation bar.

Donetsk Ultimatum to Ukraine Oligarchs: Pay Taxes or Face Nationalization.
Will Russia introduce visa regime for Ukraine?
Yesterday, the Head of DPR Zakharchenko announced that on March 1 those Ukraine oligarchs whose properties and factories in Donetsk Republic are still registered in Kiev must re-register in Donetsk, or face nationalization. Till now, most factories and mines in DLPR have been producing coal, metals, chemicals and energy, while profits were enjoyed by the junta-friendly Kiev oligarchs and while taxes were paid by said oligarchs to the Kiev regime. In turn, Kiev used this money, as well as the energy and products manufactured in Donbass, to bomb the people of DLPR.
As of now, DLPR are losing billions of rubles on this scheme, not to mention the risk to the peaceful population. The public pressure on authorities has been tremendous. A warning was sent to oligarchs some time ago that they must re-register their ownership with Donetsk and Lugansk in order to pay taxes locally, instead of Kiev. The pre-announced end date for re-registration of factories in DPR was to be March 31; however, the timeline has accelerated.
The brutal bombings by Ukraine army, continued lies by the West and Kiev, cover-up of the true state of events by the supposedly ‘neutral’ OSCE observers, and the latest coal blockade of Donbass by ukro-nazi battalions – all this has expedited the shift.
No question, the nationalization of the Ukraine oligarch properties in Donbass will go ahead and very soon. Also no question, this bold move was agreed upon with Moscow. The move essentially means that Donbass plans to re-orient its economy and its trade to Russia. I can tell you more: knowing how Putin operates, the groundwork for the re-orientation of the Donbass economy have already been quietly prepared.
In turn, this means that DLPR are about to expedite the process of distancing themselves from the ukro-nazi Ukraine. Coupled with Russian recognition of the Donetsk and Lugansk passports by Russia (read below on that), this is a very serious shift.
Incidentally, the West, entirely preoccupied elsewhere, completely missed these moves. This is in line with how Putin operates.
Ukraine oligarchs and the Kiev junta, most notably Renat Akhmetov (ethnic Azerbaijani) who still owns half of Donbass, have been enjoying a free ride. While DPR and LPR are de-facto independent politically, the taxes from profits earned by the factories, power stations and mines in the break-away republics are still paid to Kiev.
The reason I pointed out that Akhmetov, once the richest man of Ukraine according to Forbes and now a nearly bankrupt oligarch, is Azerbaijani is not because I have anything against Azerbaijan or any other nationality. I believe we all should equally respect each other.
However, the ordinary citizens of what is today still called Ukraine (but won’t in several years) can’t help but notice that for some ‘strange’ reason the majority of the Ukraine oligarchs and much of the top politicians aren’t either truly Ukrainian or Russian. There are Jews, Poles, Georgians, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Americans, Canadians, western Ukraine Bandera followers. This fact creates an additional friction and blame game. By all definitions Ukraine today is under foreign management and foreign occupation. Under the circumstances, the infamous anti-Russian ‘Euro-Maidan’ slogan ‘remember foreigner, Ukrainian is the master here’ sounds like a bad joke.
It doesn’t help that the ukro-nazi junta killed off, jailed, scared to death or expelled out of the country anyone who loved Ukraine and who could make a real difference. Today the reality is such that the majority prefer to leave rather than stay and fix things. It’s especially telling how far gone the country is when the majority of the population can’t wait to leave it.
This is a small consolation for the people of Donbass, who are being bombed by vicious ukro-nazis. There has been a lot of protests against the Kiev oligarchs still owning half of Donbass. For a while both DLPR and Moscow have been reluctant to rock the boat, giving the chance to the Minsk peace process and possibility of reconciliation.
The problem, as we discussed in previous articles and video (see links below this post), is that the economy of Ukraine was built in the USSR and the Russian Empire in such a way as to logistically be closely and efficiently entwined. Energy and raw material sources were located in logistical closeness to production facilities. The high tech companies were placed where there was an abundance of educated work force, and all that was connected via rail to the Black Sea ports and transportation hubs for fast distribution. This well-oiled infrastructure built by generations of ancestors is very hard to change. It costs money, time and resources to re-structure and redirect the flow of goods to other markets.
For some time there had been a certain sliver of hope that a drastic scenario could be avoided. However, an urge to disengage the DLPR economy from Kiev influence has been strong. The authorities are now using a pretext of the ukro-nazi coal blockade of Donbass to push through the nationalization, which has been on the menu since 2014.
Simultaneously, the still remaining few ties with Ukraine are being severed, as Donbass continues distancing from Ukraine and aligning with Russia.
I again want to stress for those in the EU and US who have to do with decision-making and who may be reading this. Russia and DLPR proposed a compromise solution: the Minsk agreements. They hung on to these agreements, attempting to fulfil them despite Kiev bombings, only to be met with lies, anti-Russian propaganda and sanctions by the West. As always, trying to reason and make deals with the West proved pointless. Now the ship has sailed and the clock cannot be turned back.
Let’s recall that a similar situation occurred in Crimea. The decisive actions by Russia to sever all ties between Crimea and Ukraine took place after the Crimean Tartar terrorist battalion headed by Isliamov, together with ukro-nazis, blockaded food, water, and at a later date, all power to Crimea. The December 2015 power blockade nearly created a humanitarian catastrophe, leaving 2.5 million people without electricity and heat in the winter.
Up till that moment Russia supplied extra electricity to Ukraine at heavily discounted rates or free, so the needed amount of power would in turn be released by Ukraine for Crimea. During Soviet times the power lines, water and food supplies, as all infrastructure and economy of Crimea, were closely tied into Ukrainian grid for efficiency’s sake.
During power blockade, Russia acted swiftly to purchase Chinese power generators, build new power stations, as well as the underwater ‘energy bridge’ from mainland. This averted the humanitarian catastrophe. In the final analysis, it allowed Crimea to develop much faster.
The food and water blockades have also been dealt with.
The new railroad to bypass Ukraine is being built and the new Kerch Bridge to Crimea from the mainland is also being constructed. This mega- bridge, already dubbed ‘the project of the century,’ is a marvel of engineering based on its length, scope and the fact that up till now it seemed impossible to build a bridge in that area due to enormous distances, violent winds and deadly currents.
The Kerch Bridge will eliminate what’s left of deficiencies and create a tourism boom for Crimea.
For DLPR the process of distancing from Ukraine is also about to become irreversible, Minsk-2 or not. Minsk-2 peace agreement was in fact a way to slow down the war, restrain Kiev from the worst possible actions, and give more time to Russia and DLPR to regroup. Minsk was never a truly working platform and peace with the ukro-nazi version of Ukraine is not possible. Any meaningful change will only be possible after this junta is gone.
The only way to have it gone is to make the West loosen its grip on the poor Ukraine and stop supporting the destructive ukro-nazi/oligarchic regime in Kiev.
However, by the time it happens DLPR would be completely de-facto independent of Ukraine. The silly ukro-nazis through their blockade are only expediting this process.
RUSSIA RECOGNIZES DLPR PASSPORTS; VISA REGIME WITH UKRAINE NEXT!
A recent breakthrough: Russia officially recognized the DPR and LPR passports. This effectively means that people from these areas will have equal with Russians rights to apply for jobs, live and study in Russia. Up till now there was no way to tell a Russia-hating Bandera ukro-nazi sympathiser from western Ukraine, from a friendly Donbass refugee. Either could have arrived to Russia as migrant worker, carrying the same Ukrainian passport.
Recently, there was a very unpleasant episode in St. Petersburg that caused a Russia-wide outcry. In one of the city hospitals, Russian nurses on night duty noticed several migrant workers from western Ukraine, celebrating the death of the slain Donetsk commander Givi and wishing that Putin, Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky would be next. It appears these western Ukraine migrant workers were employed as low-grade nannies or care-takers. Givi, just like Motorola and others before, was killed as a result of Kiev junta’s terrorist act.
The outcry in the Russian society caused authorities to reconsider who and how they let into the country. As of now, at least 3-4 million migrant workers from Ukraine are in Russia. Many are normal and friendly to Russia people from the South and East of Ukraine. However, many of those who are Russia-friendly try to move to Russia permanently. The migrant workers, who arrive for a period of a few months on a temporary visa, then exit Russia and return again, are primarily from central and western Ukraine. Among these, there are many who make money in Russia, while hating the hand that feeds them and supporting the war against Donbass.
THE SHIFT UNDERWAY! I have to note the following important Earth Shift facts. The process of questioning who and on what premises is let into any individual country is presently being considered by many countries on the face of the earth. The old systems are not working well any more as the Great Earth Shift progresses. This is also the result of the Period 8 (we’ll talk about that in one of the future webinars). We will continue seeing the breakdown of pre-existing and gradual manifestation of the new systems, in all areas of life. The new systems will be based on different principles and they will begin materializing between now and the next few years, continuing through the following two decades.
The recent escalation of DLPR bombings and the present coal blockade of Donbass caused Russia to finally act. This is only the first step. The next step will be to limit the inflow of unfriendly to Russia work force from central and western Ukraine, while favoring the DLPR workers.
I agree with the prediction of this widely anticipated move: by recognizing the passports of DPR and LPR, Russia is preparing to install a visa regime with Ukraine. This will be a very healthy move for many reasons. Among them: it will limit the ability of various shrewd western/central Ukrainians to make 4-5 times their usual salary in Russia. Deprived of their usual incomes, said western/central Ukrainians will feel pressure to rebel and unseat Poroshenko’s regime in Kiev. In turn, the rebellion of the largely Bandera ukro-nazi regions will distract the regime and aid the people of Novorossia (presently Eastern and Southern Ukraine) to free themselves from the junta and foreign yoke. There may be a line of secessions, or similar outcomes, all over Ukraine.
An interesting bifurcation will also take place. Some people from the junta-occupied parts of Ukraine will begin acquiring DLPR passports as a desirable commodity, to have an entry point into Russia. There already have been inquiries from Odessa and other parts as to how to obtain said passports. Zakharchenko has thrown hints that it won’t be a problem. This tells me that DLPR will be used as a sorting ground, so to speak, to separate the wheat from the chaff within Ukraine.
By the time the Kiev junta is gone, the population of DLPR somehow miraculously will expand. This population will miraculously spread all over Ukraine’s territory. Before you know it, these people, for instance, will begin influencing the elections in their respective areas. The possibilities are many. The exercise of soft power may lead to a peaceful shift of the remaining territories of Ukraine towards Russia.
Another indication of the upcoming Shift in Ukraine:
In December 2016 Moscow district court recognized the February 2014 Kiev Euro-Maidan as an illegal coup d’etat. The complaint was filed by a Ukraine Rada deputy from western/central Ukraine, Vladimir Oleynik, who was never particularly pro-Russian and was at one point in favor of euro-integration. His position, if anything, was pretty wishy-washy and middle of the ground. However, even this deputy was forced to flee Ukraine by the junta and ukro-nazis, after he spoke up against the coup and the s0-called ‘euro integration’ contrary to the interests of his country.
The Moscow court decision opens a wide range of possibilities, such as announcing that the present government in Kiev is illegal, demanding international war crimes tribunal, going to the international human rights court, etc. This decision can be built on in various ways – more developments to follow in 2017-18!
PUTIN AND RUSSIA:
As you’ve noticed, Russia only reacts, never initiates. Every mistake by Kiev and their handlers is used to ever so slowly change the situation. Recall one of my many 2014 predictions on Ukraine: ‘Russia will use all quiet, peaceful and legal means to slowly rebalance the Ukraine crisis – until Ukraine shifts completely towards Russia.’ As we see, this one is also coming true, as we speak. (Recalling it, I just can’t believe how hard some people had argued with me on that! Such silly arguments are too tiring and they distract me from the important stuff.)
Putin is the grandmaster of the global 3D chess. He will act when no one expects, and his next move will be as winning as any other we’ve observed him make so far. As our Russian Bear says, ‘patience is the only way to win in the world of idiots.’
Putin has plenty of patience, but as the real grandmaster of the Eastern martial arts, he knows how to spring into action on moment’s notice. This is the way of the wise and highly developed souls: going from an absolute inner peace and immobility to a fast and effective action in a blink of an eye, when no one sees you coming. This is the winning formula.

We are continuing the Ukraine topic.
Yes, the UN venue has been weakened. The new Russia’s UN envoy is, well… new. We’ll see how he performs – he may surprise us. For the time being Russia will have to make better use of other venues, others picking up the slack. Such as: Lavrov personally will have to engage more to navigate the global situation in manual regime. Incidentally, he has been doing it a lot lately. Just look at his appearance at the Munich Security Conference, as one example.
That said, the Ukraine Shift will be aided by the fact that the West is slowly disengaging from Ukraine, due to the US and EU domestic problems, and due to three years of hard diplomatic work by Putin, Lavrov, Churkin, and others.
Paradoxically, the worst case scenario: ukro-nazis seizing power in Kiev, would be the best and more expedient outcome. Should that occur, it would quickly demonstrate to the whole world how rotten the Kiev regime really is and what the Euro-Maidan was really about. The West would be forced to change its stance to save face and to somehow rectify the bad situation next to the EU borders. This would accelerate the awakening SHIFT timeline and free faster all those poor people still stuck under Kiev regime.
It would also likely make Ukraine citizens rise against the regime sooner.
But that’s exactly why this scenario won’t happen: the West won’t allow it because having a slowly and painfully festering thorn of anti-Russian Ukraine is a lot more valuable to both US and EU. That weakens Russia and the whole Russian World for as long as the wound cannot start healing. This also diverts much energy and resources to deal with the difficult situation next door.
No matter what Trump says, the idea of controlling Russia through Ukraine’s wound is much too attractive to just let it go. Therefore, I am rather skeptical about Trump moving much in the right direction voluntarily.
But – AND THAT’S IMPORTANT – what will ultimately force the West as a whole to loosen its grip on Ukraine are the actions of Russia, as well as people like you and me, Nemo: those who speak the truth and enlighten others as to the real state of affairs.
Another reason that Maidan 3.0 or any variation thereof, including the ousting of Poroshenko without elections, won’t happen is because the West already recognized the 2014 illegal coup, legitimizing illegal elections held by the junta, which installed Poroshenko. Another coup and another installed ‘president’ will completely delegitimize the entire Euro-Maidan and the whole junta structure they’ve built.
As a side note: Some are pushing for early Rada and presidential elections – and this could allow for a different outcome. Early elections for the West may be another way to re-structure and re-legitimize the junta under a different guise, with different faces, such as Yulia Timoshenko. That’s where Russia may come in and prevent this scenario, because all it will do is prolong the agony of Ukraine. Neither Russia nor DLPR benefit at all from changing the face of the junta.
This is precisely why Poroshenko is still being kept in power. Very badly, with huge problems, this slippery SOB still manages to maintain a very delicate equilibrium between all those home-grown crazies. Anyone else, such as Avakov, would not manage.
This is the only thing all Great Powers agree on: no one wants even deeper destabilization of Ukraine; no one wants a full fledged fascist state on their borders with raging civil war all over the country.
That’s why Poroshenko is still convenient for the time being even for Russia – sort of like the best of the worst and a known quantity.
Besides, Poroshenko makes for such a convenient scapegoat. Everyone’s just waiting for the mousetrap to close. Then Poroshenko and his cronies can be tried for their crimes. The trick will be not letting them escape.
You don’t want another face, such as Timoshenko or Avakov, or anyone else. After all, that other person could claim she/he had nothing to do with the war crimes, or that they were following orders. Meanwhile Poroshenko would have time to conveniently escape, having received asylum in London, US or Canada.
This has to be played cool and lots of negotiations will take place between Putin / Lavrov /Shoigu (whose special brand of diplomacy in Syria has proven very effective) and their Western counterparts.
Also, Russia is awaiting the European elections and subsequent Shift this year and next. But that’s a big and separate topic.
PREDICTION: There is no turning back after 2018. That will be a pivotal year, along with 2019.
The takeover of nuclear stations. Frankly, I don’t think ukro-nazi battalions have the guts, nor smarts, to accomplish that. Remember what I said in previous article Energy catastrophe and shut-down of Ukraine? They are mostly imbecile delinquents with an IQ below 100. They can only do what they are doing because the West has financed, armed and encouraged them.
That’s assuming they actually are acting of their own will, which they are not, as I also pointed out in the article. These ‘Ukraine patriots’ don’t make a move without being paid. Whoever pays, orders the music, as we say.
Avakov is not his own man either. He is Kolomoysky’s agent. Kolomoysky has all his billions in the West, which he salvaged by robbing and practically bankrupting Ukraine’s banking system. Everyone is well aware that he stole from the state, and – oh crime of crimes! – he also stole $10 billion of IMF loan money allocated to Ukraine. However, it wasn’t just his bounty: this money was divided between him, Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, Groysman, Avakov and a few others.
Although everyone appears to know this both in Ukraine and abroad, no one’s going after Kolomoysky’s money. Why? Because he made a trade with UK/US: his money for his country. Whatever Kolomoysky does is all done to preserve his money. Basically, like Berezovsky in his day, Kolomoysky is a typical agent of the West.
Yulia Timoshenko is trying to sell herself to the highest bidder; she’s now pursuing Trump to convince him to install her instead of Poroshenko. Nalivaichenko is CIA asset; oligarch Pinchuk was the largest private foreign donor to Hillary campaign, and now he is kissing up to Trump; Klichko is Merkel’s protegé, and so on.
I did discuss many of these personas and who controls them in ESR2 and ESR3.
Therefore, combined with Russia’s international efforts, and the fact that EU is mortified to have another Chernobyl, a new nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine will be avoided. Russia also still retains some deep-cover assets in Ukraine, who can prevent the nuclear worst case scenario to save lives. Besides, if ukro-nazis did dare take over nuclear stations, that would be the end of them, as enough people would finally rise against them. This is why Western masters won’t allow it to happen.
I am a lot more concerned that this wound will continue festering another 2 years as the West does everything to sabotage the Ukraine crisis resolution. I feel very sorry for the people of Novorossia (DLPR, Odessa, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhie, Nikolaev, Kherson, not to mention the occupied parts of Donbass), who have to continue suffering.
But here is a bit of very good news: Russia recognized DPR/LPR passports. This is a great first step towards a major shift in all of Ukraine.
The next step must become introducing visa regime for Ukraine. This will squeeze out millions of Western and Central Ukraine guest workers, who will go back to Kiev and put pressure on the regime. Once this is done, the situation in Ukraine will begin changing quickly. This could happen later this year.
The problem is, as always, the pressure on Russia by the West. Overall, it’ll be moving towards resolution, albeit gradually.

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