LADA RAY SAYS: Dear readers, the referenced article is fake news and lame propaganda. And it’s written with an indecent kind of glee, which attests to a low calibration of the ‘journalists’ behind it.
The real truth:
Crimean power now is already enough to sustain the needs of citizens, plus the present tourism volume, which is going up and has reached 6-7 million guests a year. There were severe power shortages after the Ukraine ukro-nazis and Crimean Tartar Mejlis terrorists blew up powerlines to Crimea in December 2015. This left 2.5 mln people without power and heat for two weeks during winter.
I don’t recall the ‘liberals’ and ‘humanitarians’ in the West expressing indignation over such terrorism, helping alleviate the Crimean humanitarian catastrophe, or protesting the actions of their puppet Kiev regime.
Russia quickly built the underwater ‘power bridge’ to Crimea, consisting of four bundles of power lines and telephone cables. Russia quickly delivered additional power generators (incidentally, with Chinese help). Also, Crimean old power stations have been revamped and expanded. As a consequence, power shortages are completely gone.
However, there is a truth to this: more power is needed and the new local power stations must be built… in order to grow and expand tourism to Crimea. This is the main developmental goal for the peninsula. Crimea has the capacity to receive over 10 million tourists per year, but under Kiev it only was able to receive a fraction of this number. During Soviet times the annual inflow was 10 million and above. During the 25 years of Ukraine ‘independence’ under Kiev regime Crimea turned into a pale, fledgling copy of its former flourishing self. When the neglected Soviet infrastructure has been refurbished, currently constructed new infrastructure is fully up and running, and additional power plants are built, Crimea will get back to the Soviet tourism numbers. Most likely, those numbers will be exceeded within several years.
The new power plants are a strategic investment in Crimea’s future economy.
Sure, it’s hard to disagree with this statement: the West will do absolutely everything to sabotage Russia and Crimea. That said, the Crimea power plant ‘turbine situation’ is a storm in a teacup. It’ll be resolved easily and soon. Won’t say how, so some potentially unfriendly forces who may read this don’t have time to sabotage it.
Let’s never forget that fake news is the new chosen weapon in the global info war against Russia
I basically predicted, or perhaps rather preempted, this would happen when I wrote the following pieces in 2014, 2015 and 2016. There was no term fake news yet – I called this phenomenon ‘hoaxes’ and ‘targeted info dumps.’
If you haven’t yet, do read these three pieces! If you have read them, it’s useful to refresh your memory!
Weapons of info war
There is an all out info war against Russia. Ukraine and other E. European ‘countries,’ such as the Baltics and Poland, are at the forefront of this info war. Ukraine and others’ ministries of propaganda spread fake news about ‘protests’ in Russia, ‘hunger and shortages’ in Donbass and Crimea. Western publications happily parrot all this. Western sources are routinely caught quoting obscure Ukrainian publications, known for spreading hoaxes, fake news and targeted info dumps. No facts are checked.
Please be careful what you read and whom you trust. Many so-called ‘alternative’ publications are as, or even more, guilty of spreading fake news and lies! I warned my readers about this growing problem as early as in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 1, as well as in other above-referenced articles. Now, in 2017, I see that many people finally began talking about the fake news problem. I recommend my above-linked articles as eye-opening reads to avoid falling for it in the future.
The truth about Crimean Bridge
The above-referenced article was a very clear example of the fake news at work. Another such example is fake news about The Crimean Bridge. I’ve heard lots of fake news originating from Ukraine and supposedly Russian ‘opposition’ sources, such as Navalny, who in fact are on the payroll of Washington. These fake news contended that Russia is lying and that no Crimean Bridge is being constructed as it’s an impossible engineering feat; that all the money has been stolen; that Crimea will always remain a hostage of Ukraine… This usually goes accompanied with fake pics and videos. It appears that even the Western fake news propaganda didn’t so much fall for it. The reason is simple: any satellite footage will prove these fake news wrong. Therefore, the Crimean Bridge in the West is met with a stony silence, accompanied with futile attempts at anti-Russian sanctions.
The truth is, The Crimean Bridge is being built well ahead of schedule and it will soon alleviate the transportation pressure on the peninsula. Another investment in the bright future of Crimea it has been dubbed ‘The Construction Project of the Century.’ It is a rare engineering feat indeed.
There were many famous attempts to build a bridge from mainland to Crimea in different eras: by Russian Tsars, Stalin and even Hitler during WWII. All had failed. The stories are fascinating and I’ll tell them to you in a future book. This is the first time such bridge will become a reality – and what a reality it will be soon!
The Crimean Bridge (The Kerch Bridge – RUS: Kerchenskiy Most) is coming up at a lightning speed – drone footage:
Crimean bridge will look like this when completed – RT projection:
Crimean Kerch Bridge is a bridge between Mainland Russia and the Crimean Peninsula, built between the Azov and Black Seas – panoramic view.
Recall that we discussed how a country’s expanding Life Force is measured by how many strategic mega-infrastructure projects a country can pull off at the same time. Recommended read: Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force? (US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine, Syria)
Lots of exciting and fascinating stuff is happening in and around Crimea. I’m sure in the future we’ll talk more about the Crimean Bridge and all things Crimea!
Ukraine starts energy blockade of Donbass, but Crimea volunteers to help
On another note, two days ago Ukraine has disconnected electric power supply to Lugansk Republic (LPR). Lugansk is now experiencing power shortages, much like Crimea did in 2015. Donetsk (DPR) power lines from Ukraine are still working, however, it is expected that Kiev will turn off the electric power to Donetsk as well.
In this situation, Crimea has volunteered to share its know-how in dealing with energy blockade by Kiev. It is expected to dispatch to Lugansk and Donetsk those surplus portable emergency generators Russia had purchased to save the people of Crimea in 2015.
Why did Kiev disconnect power to LPR? After recent blockade by ukro-nazis of Donetsk and Lugansk coal, Kiev ‘discontinued’ purchases of the Donbass coal. As a result of this new stupidity by Kiev junta, Ukraine’s own power stations and industrial giants are going cold one after another. Kiev is quickly losing what little industrial base it had left after 2014 coup. Let’s recall what I discussed in other Ukraine articles: the energy grid and industrial production of Ukraine was built by the USSR as one integral system, and Donbass was part of this big system. The power plant located on Ukrainian side that used to send energy to Lugansk in exchange for coal and a hefty payment is down to 1 month or so in coal supplies, and prospects for more coal are very dim. By not delivering energy to LPR, the power plant may survive a month or two longer. But that’s all the time it has: after that it will go cold, with workers losing their jobs.
What will Kiev’s energy blockade of Lugansk and Donetsk achieve? Nothing, except irrevocably distancing DPR and LPR from Ukraine and expediting the republics’ integration into Russia. Crimea has already announced that it’ll help the break-away republics achieve this goal.

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 (written report)
Support Lada’s work: DONATE
For the second day the horrific cannonade is continuing, as the missiles and arms stored at Ukraine’s largest arms depot in Balakleya, Kharkov Oblast, mass explode. Allegedly the wholesale destruction of the largest storage of offensive weapons in Ukraine began as a result of a fire. Ukraine military is being accused of creating the catastrophe.
Over 20 thousand people have evacuated from the nearby city of Balakleya. Locals continue fleeing in haste. Casualties are unknown, being hushed up by Ukraine authorities.
The infamous Balakleya arms depot stored weapons used to kill the people of Donbass. Fewer weapons left in Ukraine means fewer deaths in Donetsk and Lugansk. Among weapons stored at this facility were the feared Tochka-U and Grad missiles, which Kiev army had unleashed on LDPR.
The video below is a good quality compilation of footage shot from various vantage points. These are all eyewitness videos by locals from surround residential areas. At one point in the video you can see a stream of cars fleeing the exploding city.
In the end of the video, a male voice can be heard saying, ‘We must leave this country. This is the only correct solution.’
Radiation disaster in the making!
As a side note, the intel I receive is that Kiev army experiences a huge shortage of tanks and armored vehicles to attack Donbass.
To compensate for that, Poroshenko ordered to retrieve the old tanks and military vehicles once used by the USSR in Chernobyl remedial efforts and abandoned inside radioactive zone. Thousands of radioactive vehicles have been stored there. Now these are being repurposed by Kiev. Some are used as scrap, melted to manufacture new weapons; others are fixed up and sent straight to Donbass. Reportedly, a large percentage of the Kiev army ATO soldiers now suffer from radiation poisoning. Of course, the real condition and percentages of those affected are hushed up.
The newest worrying development: it appears Kiev decided to do the unthinkable – build a radioactive barrier between LDPR and Ukraine. Witnesses have been posting videos of Ukraine army hauling radioactive vehicles from Chernobyl and dumping them on the front line between LDPR and Kiev-controlled side. This includes heavy trucks and other machinery used by the USSR in Chernobyl remedial efforts. The result may be disastrous. All that radioactive machinery is moved through Ukraine countryside and cities, then maliciously dumped in E. Ukraine fields, possibly close to where people live and grow crops.
I want to reiterate and expand on my 2014-15 analysis and predictions for Ukraine:
The remnants of Ukraine, once a peaceful place I used to know years ago, is continuing on the road to self-destruction. I am sorry to say that for the territory we so far still call Ukraine, the worst is still to come.
Ukraine, formed as an integral part of the USSR, was always an artificial entity consisting of incongruent and mismatched parts. It could only exist in peace and prosperity under the strong umbrella and guidance of Russia and as part of a unified Russian state. Having acquired independence, it couldn’t deal with it. The breakup and rethinking of the future direction became unavoidable.
It would have been a lot better if the process of the breakup was peaceful and reasonable. However, the process of rethinking of the future of this South-Russian territory has to happen, whether we want it or not.
In less than 10 years time the name Ukraine (Ukraina) will become obsolete. It’ll happen gradually, probably several years into the future. Instead Novorossia and Malorossia will re-emerge, along with other long forgotten names, such as Tavria, Galitsia and Carpathian Rus. Most or all of these territories will rejoin Russia either as parts of Russian territory or closely-associated states.
I have extensively discussed Ukraine, Donbass, the unfolding disintegration and future prospects of these territories in several written Earth Shift Reports: ESR2, ESR3, ESR6 and ESR8. These reports can be read individually for a donation. Alternatively, all four Ukraine ESRs can be purchased together here: ESR Sets.

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.

Also from Lada Ray:
Much like the Mosul offensive in Iraq was supposed to be victoriously accomplished in time for US Presidential Elections on November 8, 2016, to give Hillary a boost, various terrorist plots in Russia and Donetsk were also planned to be completed by then for the same purpose. Plus, of course the big one: punish Russia.
We know that Mosul push went nowhere. No ‘Mission accomplished’ in Iraq.
Now let’s see what came out of multiple terrorist attempts in Russia.
This is a follow up to my recent Putin Makes His Move! Russian Economy Minister Alexey Ulyukaev Arrested for Corruption.
FSB FOILS MAJOR TERROR ATTACKS
Just days prior to US Elections on November 8, FSB began announcing detention of suspected terrorists and spies. Subversive cells’ arrests are continuing in Russia and Donetsk.
CIA and Kiev junta’s attempts to sabotage and terrorize CRIMEA turn sour
You may recall that several months ago there was a major attempt by Ukraine to infiltrate Crimea with its subversive operatives, who were supposed to bomb crucial infrastructure objects in order to create a humanitarian catastrophe. Confessions by said subversives, who turned out to be career officers of Ukrainian army, revealed that their acts were specifically aimed at disrupting Russian Duma Elections 2016.
More about it in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 11: ALL ABOUT 2016 RUSSIAN DUMA ELECTIONS.
Objects to be bombed included chemical and power plants, as well as hospitals and the famous Crimean Bridge. One-of-a-kind engineering feat, the massive Crimean Bridge, has been dubbed the project of the century. It will connect Crimea with mainland Russia through the Kerch Peninsula, bypassing Ukraine and, thus, alleviating pressure on Crimea. The construction is projected to be completed by the end of 2017-18.
The Ukraine terrorists were also supposed to mass-poison potable water. Crimea suffers from water shortage after in 2014 the Kiev junta destroyed the only ample water source, The North Crimean Canal, running through Ukraine and built by the USSR. You may recall that in August there were real battles on the border, when Kiev military attempted a veritable invasion into Crimean territory. While deflecting the multiple attacks and arresting armed subversive groups near the border, FSB and Russian Border Guard lost two men.
In late October – early November, another major terror group was arrested. This time the subversive acts were aimed at aiding Hillary and undermining Trump during US Elections. The head of this subversive group is a colonel of Ukraine GUR (State Office of Intelligence). It has to be noted that Russian Intelligence is called GRU (State Intelligence Office). It appears that the Ukraine GUR name was parroted after Russian, but so it wouldn’t seem too blatant, the letters were changed around.
Some of these groups were embedded since 2014, as sleeper cells. They were left behind by Kiev as Crimea transitioned to Russia, with stated purpose of later aiding the future attack on Crimea from within. Others infiltrated into Crimea in the past couple of years, taking advantage of the fact that the border between Ukraine and Crimea is still easily crossed, due to tight connections between the people on both sides.
The original Plan A was for Ukraine, US, and – as they saw it at the time – Turkey, to attack Crimea together and take it back from Russia. Turkey was supposed to have a pivotal role, manipulating the Turkish discontent with the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. Turkish nationalist groups and Crimean Tartar terrorists, armed by Turkey, began amassing in Kherson Oblast bordering Crimea on the Ukraine side.
But there was a problem: Putin for years managed to smartly neutralize Turkey and Erdogan by lucrative trade deals. To accomplish the US/Kiev plan (Qatar and Saudis were also in on the hit), Turkey needed to be tied to Ukraine-US alliance by blood, so there would be no turning back to good relations with Russia. Turkey had to be ‘subverted’ so a rift between Turkey and Russia would become irreparable.
This was attempted through the downing of the Russian Su24 in Syria in 2015 by the Turkish army. That incident, which shocked Russians and was likened by Putin to a knife in the back, nearly did put a stop to Russia-Turkey cooperation. But that turned out to be insufficient. Both Putin and Erdogan turned out too smart. Not to mention, Russian Intelligence turned out significantly ahead of the CIA.
Having figured out what was happening, Erdogan (with Russian intel’s help?) fired the main US asset in his government, PM Davutoglu (an ethnic Crimean Tartar). He also made insistent steps to reconcile with Russia. He had the intermediary help from Kazakh President Nazarbayev, who served as a bridge. When it was discovered that Erdogan is attempting to win back Putin’s friendship, a coup against him was organized by Turkish army officers on CIA payroll. Erdogan escaped capture and Gaddafi-like end by minutes, because Putin authorized Russian Intelligence to send him a timely warning.
The coup failed and past relations with Russia, including the most important element, energy cooperation and Turkish Stream, are being restored. Meanwhile, the plot backfired and Turkey-NATO cooperation is slowly but surely dying. Give NATO just a few years and it’ll be dead.
Incidentally, for his help in restoring Turkey-Russia relations, Nazarbayev was made pay through a color revolution attempt, which, of course, failed.

All about Kazakhstan color revolution attempt and terror attacks, as well as color revolution attempts in Armenia and other EAEU states, who and why organized them:
Video ESR9 Attack on Kazakhstan: Who Destabilizes Eurasian Union? (includes video of attempted attacks).
In the end, it became clear that Russia wasn’t destroyed economically through sanctions, oil price drop and ruble attacks, as US promised Kiev junta since 2014. Turkish gambit didn’t work out either.
And the result is, as I predicted in 2014! US is sick and tired of the whiny and inept Kiev and Poroshenko, while Kiev and Ukrainians are mad at US and EU for betrayal. As I was predicting since the VERY BEGINNING of the Ukraine saga: EU and US don’t know how to drop Ukraine as a hot potato, or squeezed out lemon they have no use for. When Trump takes office, my prediction will be complete: US will drop Ukraine.
You all recall one of my big 2014 predictions: Ukraine will begin turning away from the West and back towards Russia in 2016-18. By the end of 2018, this process will be complete.
And in this regard, also recall what I said in 2014: it’ll be all of Ukraine, not bits and pieces, as many suggested. No one seemed to hear me at the time, as everyone was bent on dividing Ukraine. Nope, it’ll be ALL of Ukraine. Possibly minus a few tiny pieces in the West, but even that is unlikely. This is my prediction since 2014 and it remains so. If my track record is any indication, you will see this prediction come true, as so many others before.
Having been denied the real war in Crimea, Kiev junta had no choice but to go to Plan B: subversive terror attacks. But, as many may know, Russian FSB and Intelligence are, shall we say, in the world’s top 2, if not 1. As Ukraine subversives activated, they began being apprehended.
Full video of one of the latest subversive’s arrests in Crimea, released by FSB:
Donetsk and Lugansk
Similar situation developed in Donetsk, capital of DNR (Eng: DPR). In the past 2-3 weeks MGB of DNR arrested at least 2 separate ukro-nazi and Ukraine subversive groups on its territory. MGB means Ministry of State Security. These groups were prepared to begin acts of terror and sabotage, similar to Crimea. Also detained were the suspected assassins of the legendary Donetsk commander Motorola, with the telling name «Misanthropic Division». Video in Russian about ukro-nazi «Misanthropic Division» and who they are: Кто такие «Misanthropic Division»? О предполагаемых убийцах Моторолы.
This is the video of the arrest of six alleged Motorola assassins from «Misanthropic Division», who bragged about it online:
The latest: also LNR (Lugansk) announced that they uncovered a plot to blow up the Schastie power plant. The canal feeding water to the power plant in question was mined by the Ukraine subversives. VIDEO announcement.
Major op in Moscow and St. Petersburg
In St. Petersburg and Moscow terrorist sleeper cells’ arrests continue. Since prior to US Elections, almost daily FSB has been detaining dozens of subversives.
Videos from various sources about detentions of subversives in St.Pete and Moscow. It has been confirmed that they were all members of ISIL, originally from Central Asia (in other words, members of these cells were Uzbeks, Tajiks, Kyrgyzs, Turkmens). They were preparing bombings in public places in both capitals. Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan special services aided in the arrests.
Collusion between ISIL, Kiev and CIA
We know that terror attacks in Crimea, Donetsk and Russia mainland were planned simultaneously. This clearly denotes a collusion between ISIL, Kiev junta and CIA. As if we needed more proof of that…
CIA evacuating from Kiev to Romania
I was asked whether it was true that CIA operatives were evacuating from Kiev. Yes, it’s true. In 2014 CIA took over the upper 4th floor of the SBU building in Kiev, where Ukrainians were banned from entering. American flag flew over that Ukrainian government building. After Trump election and arrests of subversives in Russia, CIA operatives have hastily evacuated all their papers and moved to Romania. Only CIA analysts (read surveillance, spies-monitors) remain in Kiev.
I can tell you more. This reminds me of one of the most shameful pages in human history: WWII. Anticipating the end, in 1944 Hitler Nazis were hastily burning and evacuating their papers and leaving behind sleeper cells to attack Russia later from within. Some of these cells were the Bandera ukro-nazis trained and left behind in Ukraine. It is the heirs of those Bandera followers who spread fascism all over Ukraine and executed the 2014 coup.
Fast-forward to the end of 2016. History repeats! Anticipating the beginning of the end, both CIA and Kiev junta are now busy embedding long-term sleeper cells all over Ukraine.
Odessa and Saakashvili resignation
In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT of 3/31/16, I predicted that Saakashvili would only be the governor of Odessa till 2017. My exact words were: ‘Meet international criminal, ex-president of Georgia and US agent, Mikhail Saakashvili, governor of Odessa 2015-2017.’ You can read these words in the ESR8 description by clicking above link. In the report you can further read why I said that. Saakashvili resigned his post on November 7, 2016 (this sly fox wanted to position himself for the new US president). Saakashvili resignation will officially go through in the beginning of 2017, right on the dot, per my prediction.
Maidan 3.0 developing in Kiev
Protests headed by opposition leaders Evgeny Muraev and Rabinovich (Party Za Zhisn’ -For Life) demand the sacking of the head of Central Bank Gontareva and Ukraine currency back at pre-2014-coup rate of 8 grivnas per dollar.
Sure, keep dreaming… These are, of course, purely populist slogans. You can’t have strong currency after you’ve destroyed your economy. The problem is also that a catastrophic winter is ahead, while utilities charges keep climbing. Some Ukrainians won’t survive this winter.
MY PLANS FOR NEXT FEW WEEKS
How long has Poroshenko and Kiev junta got? Not too long now. What should we expect in Ukraine next? Secession movements in Western Ukraine? Will Maidan 3.0 materialize? Who’s really protesting against whom? I’ll discuss all this in a separate video, which will be released soon.
Next week I’ll also have a new piece (it’ll be either an article or a video) on the spectacular turnaround in Moldova and Bulgaria elections – the situation is developing exactly as predicted in ESR8 and my earlier Moldova articles.
I plan to go over the heating up situation in Pridnestrovie, as well. The sly Putin’s plan re. Pridnestrovie and Moldova and what to expect in the region in the next few years. (Also watch video: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)
Following my Trump win prediction coming true, I plan a follow up video on Trump, whether Hillary will go to jail, and more.

Lada Ray PREDICTIONS
Dear friends and followers!
Thank you for your wonderful continued support and donations!
I really appreciate it!
In the midst of Ukraine’s horrors and struggles (and not only Ukraine’s), I just wanted to post something positive…
In Russia May 1 (May Day) was traditionally celebrated as both the holiday of spring and nature and as the day of the international solidarity of workers. Many came for holiday parades and then spent the day on the town with their families, amid street entertainment and vendors, who tried to outdo themselves for the cheerful crowds. Others chose to go to dachas (traditional Russian country homes with garden plots), beaches, or nature to officially kick off the warm season. In nature the guitar-accompanied songs were sung and something yummy was usually made in a fire pit. This is how I remember this day.
May 1 today is an official state holiday in about 55 countries and is celebrated in over 140 countries.
This is to the issue of remembering and accepting your past and honoring you traditions that we discussed in SPRING 2016 UKRAINE REPORT: War Against Memory:
The colorful May 1 parade on Red Square and on central streets of all cities and towns was a time-honored USSR tradition. After 1991 it was discontinued for 20 years – thank Yeltsin for that.
Three years ago it was again re-started, following the overwhelming vote by the people. Yesterday, May 1, 2016, 100,000 people marched on Red Square alone – this was the unified march of the Trade Unions, organized together with the ruling United Russia party. Plus, Russian Communist Party had its own mass parade. Other parties had their own rallies, as well.
A short clip with highlights of the colorful Red Square May 1 Parade, plus, highlights from Vladivostok, Kazan’, St Petersburg, and other Russian cities:
This is a clip about May 1 celebration in Simferopol, capital of Crimea:
This is Pervomay (May 1) in Sevastopol, Crimea:
International May Day celebrations (and clashes in some countries):
DNR and LNR military officials have been warning of the possibility of Kiev renewing its offensive on the republics as soon as the weather turns warm enough. Poroshenko can’t afford not to restart Donbass war amid worsening of the economic and social situation and in order to distract Ukrainians’ from political crisis, per analysts’ opinion.
DNR and LNR are warning that Kiev amassed 90,000 troops on the border and that attack is coming soon.
I agree that Poroshenko and some others in Kiev are itching to re-start a war. But as I had told you all before, I don’t believe Poroshenko has the guts to authorize an offensive. First, he gets huge pressure from EU to stay within Minsk 2 framework; EU won’t like it if he broke peace agreement that blatantly. EU/Merkel/Hollande , in turn, get pressure from Russia to pressure Poroshenko. They also get plenty of pressure from their own voters, business and farmers to lift anti-Russian sanctions.
In turn, Obama administration/Democrats get pressure from Merkel and Hollande, and from Russia. But besides that they have lots of internal pressure due to the upcoming elections. One wrong move and any hope for Hillary is gone. And US stooges in Kiev – Poroshenko and Co. – are bound to make lots of wrong moves.
I think that Poroshenko, as well as his US/EU handlers, are pretty clear that if they attempt another all-out attack on DNR/LNR, this time the republics will make sure they’ll liberate the entire Donbass, and perhaps, neighboring oblasts as well. As DNR’s Zakharchenko said, “This time we’ll counter-attack till we are in Kiev.” These are not empty threats. Previous attacks by Kiev resulted in Debaltsevo and Ilovaisk cauldrons, with tens of thousands of Ukraine soldiers dead or missing. Losses ratio was 1 (DNR/LNR) to 10 or more (Ukraine).
If Kiev can’t attacks directly, what can Ukraine do? Instead, they are attempting to provoke DNR and LNR. To accomplish that they continuously shell peaceful citizens and villages near frontline. The idea is to anger the republics so much that they lose their cool and begin retaliating, thus breaking Minsk 2 agreement. After that Kiev, US and EU get to blame DNR/LNR and, of course, Russia in violating cease-fire. If that should happen, Kiev and US will immediately demand new sanctions against Russia and attempt to vilify Russia and Putin yet again.
This is why DNR/LNR can’t respond to obvious provocations. The especial cruelty of the situation is in the fact that innocent people and animals suffer under shellings, with no recourse. All villagers normally keep a lot of animals, who are also forced to suffer under bombings. Those who left to escape the horrors of war were forced to leave their animals behind!
When will these poor people and innocent animals get justice? Why is the so-called ‘civilized’ world blind and deaf? Where are US/UK/Canada/Australia and EU when obvious violations of human rights are perpetuated by Kiev, Poroshenko, nationalists and ukro-nazis in power? How do they justify their continued political, financial and ideological support of war criminals in Kiev and Ukraine army, while the international tribunal is what they truly deserve?
This is the latest from Donbass, near frontlines…
Citizens of Zaitsevo village, located near frontline, are among many on DNR/LNR side who complain that as soon as OSCE monitoring mission moves to Ukraine side, Kiev army renews the shelling. In other words, Kiev military is quiet, seemingly observing the cease-fire while OSCE mission is on DNR or LNR side. Then, monitors call Ukrainian command to advise that they are leaving DNR/LNR controlled territory to inspect the other side. As soon as their cars leave, Ukraine army and ukro-nazis begin shelling residential areas, schools, churches and hospitals with renewed vigor.
Villagers all around DNR and LNR have been complaining about this devious scheme since the beginning of the truce. It appears, finally OSCE is beginning to pay attention. Head of OSCE mission in Donbass Alexander Hug announced that they would install a 360 view camera in Zaitsevo.
On video below a local DNR commander says that he has had a camera installed for a while, and this camera has registered violations by Kiev. But OSCE doesn’t seem to accept local video proof.
A sign of changes to come! OSCE finally starts noticing cease-fire violations, something they seemed not to see before. In fact, locals call them blind and deaf; anger against OSCE indifference and lack of accurate assessment in Donbass has been widespread. OSCE monitors have been playing games and some even accuse them of spying on Kiev’s behalf. Locals can’t explain in any other way the fact that Ukraine side aims so accurately as soon as OSCE cars leave an area. They in fact may not be spies – just EU stooges – but their curious blindness to obvious facts and certain unsavory avoidance of direct answers makes people suspect the worst.
The fact that they are starting to talk (finally) about installing a camera to register Ukraine army violations is a signal of what I talked about in previous article: EU is beginning to dump Kiev junta. The ‘flushing down’ of this fascist version of Ukraine has begun! (More in: Yatsenyuk Announces Resignation. Ukraine On the Brink? France Recognizes Novorossia?)
Videos below show how terrible this violent spring is in Donbass. It’s especially striking when you see destroyed houses and schools next to the blossoming trees. Videos are in English and Russian.
Zaitsevo local: They’ll begin shelling as soon as you leave. This man says that very few people are still left in the village. He miraculously still has water, but no gas and no electricity:
Shelling begins as soon as OSCE has left. April 12, 2016:

FlyDubai Boeing-737 FZ981 crashed in Rostov-on-Don killing all 62 on board (RT SPECIAL COVERAGE):
Flydubai flight FZ981 has crashed in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don (Rostov Oblast) killing all 62 passengers and crew on board. The flight was en route from Dubai and crashed during its second landing approach amid poor weather conditions.
‘Every detail is important’ – interview with head of the search group. Over 800 Russian investigators, experts and search workers are now at the scene. Rostov Airport remains closed, planes have been re-routed.
Out of 62 people onboard, there were 55 passengers: 44 Russian citizens and 11 foreign nationals; and 7 crew members: one Russian citizen, 6 foreign nationals. Most of Russians on board were from Rostov Oblast. None of the people on board survived the crash.
First of all, I want to offer my deepest condolences to the families of all victims.
#Flydubai is a budget airline owned and operated by the United Arab Emirates state. They fly from Dubai to over 60 countries. It appears the pilot was a Greek national and the crew was international.
The plane attempted two landings, crashing on second attempt. According to the very first account of events, visibility was poor due to bad weather, which, based on some initial speculation, allegedly may have caused the plane to crash. However, a large number of questions remains.
The investigation has only just begun and as usual, Russian authorities will be very careful to admit that foul play is involved. If you recall, Russians admitted that Sinai, Egypt catastrophe, with 224 dead, was a terrorist act only after UK announced they were grounding flights to Egypt due to terrorist threat. In fact, the very first accusation floating around the net, was against the pilot and crew. They were accused of lack of professionalism; the Russian aviation in general was immediately accused of poor pilot preparation. Moreover, the company was accused of poor plane maintenance and Russian authorities in sloppiness. All that was rebuffed by everyone from global aviation authorities to Russian authorities and various international testing agencies. It turned out that the Sinai Airbus pilot was one of the most experienced and top-rated in the business, the whole crew was exceptionally experienced and that the plane just passed full maintenance and testing in Ireland.
Clearly, Russians knew it was a terrorist act early on. The reason for the slow admission was so not to play into the hands of terrorists. One of the main goals of the Sinai terrorist act was to put a wedge between Russia and Egypt, whose close relations were on the upswing. Another goal was to take revenge on Russia for destroying ISIS infrastructure in Syria, financed and built by Qatar, Turkey and Saudis. Third, to instill dread in Russians vacationing abroad. The actual organizers of the Sinai attack have been named (in whispers) in Russia: Qatar and Qatar foreign minister in person. I explain how and why in ESR5 and ESR7.
I suspect that in the case of Rostov-on-Don Flydubai catastrophe Russians will be just as careful to publicly announce the results of investigation. We’ll see how it goes and I do not intend to get ahead of the investigation. I am for allowing professionals to handle it at their pace. Besides, very little is really known to date on how it happened and what went wrong.
Barring any real details, for now I’ll be very cautious with any definitive conclusions. But I want to share the red flags this catastrophe has risen for me. I will leave the technical stuff to specialists. Instead, let’s talk about what is my specialty: geopolitics, Ukraine, Middle East, and attempts to stop Earth Shift and Russia’s rebalancing of the world away from the West.
Let’s call this my preliminary investigation. Let’s consider it my pointing out of the suspicious alarm bells and red flags. The investigators, at a minimum, should take them into account.
For now, I hear that they are considering poor visibility and weather conditions, and/or pilot and crew error as possible reasons.
Incidentally, when the plane is this close to the ground, its speed is the slowest, which increases the possibility of survival for victims. Experts are bemused by the fact that there were no survivors.
But that’s not all. Check out this!
First, look at this CCTV footage of the plane’s crash. Notice the strange angle of descent that appears far too steep: something like 50-60 degrees. What pilot, if he is in control of his machine, would ever descent so steeply so close to the ground, risking hitting it, especially if the weather is bad and visibility poor?
Second, look at the timing of this tragedy!
On March 15th Russia just announced partial troops withdrawal from Syria (a connection with the Middle East, where UAE is also located). In connection with that, a follow up vengeance, using sloppy security at UAE airport, comes to mind.
On March 18, just a few hours prior to this catastrophe, Russia was celebrating the 2nd anniversary of reunification with Crimea (see #Sevastopol #Krim #Rossia: 2nd Anniversary of Crimea’s Reunification with Russia).
Now look at the location of the Flydubai Boeing 737 catastrophe: Rostov-on-Don, the capital of Rostov Oblast. To the west, Rostov Oblast borders ‘Ukraine,’ as it is marked on this map:
And now check out what is actually located on the other side of the so-called ‘Ukraine’ border: Donetsk/DNR and Lugansk/LNR. Yes, Rostov oblast borders not Ukraine, but DNR and LNR. It was here, to Rostov Oblast where 2.5 million refugees from Donbass escaped Kiev bombings; many of them still reside there. Russian humanitarian convoys and other help for the republics went and continues going through Rostov Oblast. When EU delegations and humanitarian help arrives to DLNR, it also goes through Rostov Oblast. Here is another interesting little bit: ex-prez of Ukraine Yanukovich escaped from ukro-nazis to Rostov, where he presently resides.
In short, Rostov serves as a hub and a central for help to DNR/LNR. Ukro-nazis and junta followers of various colorings and creeds have been sending all kinds of threats to Rostov Oblast and its people since 2014.
This map I found on the net shows Novocherkassk, located just next to the Rostov Oblast capital Rostov-on-Don. The body of water in the lower left corner is Azov Sea. Notice distance to Donetsk and Lugansk. Also, notice Mariupol (Donetsk Oblast) just next to the border with Rostov Oblast on the Azov Sea shore, which is now in the hands of Kiev junta and ukro-nazi battalions.
In addition to the above, Rostov Oblast on the Azov Sea is very close to Crimea, which is located just to the south-west, between Azov and Black Seas. The mega-bridge to Crimea through the Kerch Strait (Kerchensky Most) is being built just south of Rostov, in the neighboring Krasnodar Krai.
How’s all that for interesting coincidences!
Another interesting coincidence: Ukraine/Poroshenko and Turkey/Erdogan/Davutoglu are becoming very close, pushed together by their desperation and hatred of Russia and Putin. A recent investigation revealed that after Russia eliminated ISIS oil smuggling infrastructure, which made Erdogan’s family billions and allowed him to manipulate the Middle East, he is actively looking for ways to inflict damage on Russia, and is ready to accept any offers from Ukraine. Ukraine already gave plenty of advances to Turkey. I have first-hand, undeniable intel and proof of Erdogan/Poroshenko collusion and I will present it in upcoming ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. Additionally, there is direct proof of Kiev/Turkey/ISIS/Crimean Tatar Mejlis collusion, attempts and intentions to inflict damage by all means possible on Russia and Crimea. This video proof will be presented in upcoming ESR9: CRIMEAN AGENDA.
Now, to the fact that Flydubai is from UAE, located in the Middle East. It is a very well known fact that Middle East airports and companies have inferior security and hiring practices. Sinai, Egypt catastrophe demonstrated that it was too easy to install a terror device due to lax security and sloppy hiring practices at the airport.
After the Egypt tragedy, Russian airports, companies and aviation crews became super-vigilant and new, most advanced security measures were adopted. I can say absolutely confidently that no bomb or suicide bomber could have penetrated on a RUSSIAN plane.
But a UAE (Middle Eastern) plane, especially if it’s a Boeing, is a different story.
Why Boeing: just look how many catastrophes happen to Boeings lately. One interesting theory I have is that the manufacturer of these planes, Boeing, may have installed malware or backdoor software, which allows to override pilot’s commands at an opportune moment. Another possibility I see is that US controlled GPS satellite feeds may get manipulated or turned off to disorient the plane.
Alternatively, plane’s internal wiring may have been tampered with by UAE airport employees. Or just plain old bomb, as seems to be the case in Sinai tragedy….
You may ask, why they waited for literally the last second to crash the plane? Why not do it en route? Wouldn’t that be more easy and secure? I think the explanation may be on the surface. Rostov Oblast played a big role in accepting Ukraine refugees, humanitarian help, as Yanukovich residence, and in certain cases, as a transfer point to Crimea and DNR by Azov Sea. And what did Russia just celebrate? The 2nd anniversary of reunification with Crimea. Plus, Russia just announced the withdrawal of troops from Syria after the mission has been accomplished.
If this indeed were a terrorist act, the point would have been to punish Russia by making sure the plane actually crashed on Russian soil; moreover, the idea would apparently be to punish specifically the people of Rostov Oblast by crashing it in plain view of all, close to the airport.
The above ‘coincidences’ potentially implicate the following entities: Kiev junta/Ukraine, Turkey, Crimean Tatar Mejlis and their friends at ISIS-Daesh, plus their Western sponsors. For what it’s worth, Ukrainians I used to know were not devious enough to execute these kinds of terror acts. Sure, they may have changed – for this lost generation all bets are off. But my money is still on Turkey, Mejlis and ISIS.
Was it just a tragic error and confluence of unfortunate events, or was it a chilling terrorist message? Let’s hope investigation will answer that soon.

What do Russians think – comments on YT:
This is the latest from Donbass. Rumors have been circulating since August that Lugansk and Donetsk Republics were preparing a referendum to take place simultaneously with the local elections. These local elections will take place in DNR and LNR on October 18, 2015 pursuant to Minsk 2 agreements. Mayors of several key cities and heads of some towns are being elected.
The rumor that a new referendum to join Russia is to take place around this time was denied vehemently on several occasions by the head of Donetsk, Alexandr Zakharchenko.
It also has to be said that Donetsk is presently going through a power struggle at the top level. Speaker of the Donetsk parliament Andrey Purgin was recently replaced with Denis Pushilin. Rumors, spread undoubtedly by the Kiev side, that Purgin was arrested turned out false, but they generated a temporary confusion and turmoil in society, which was obviously the goal of this hoax. Certain questions about how it happened and why remain unanswered, although Andrey Purgin already announced that he and his allies were regrouping. While they aren’t participating in the current elections yet, they are in a soft opposition to the current government, exploring their options.
Purgin came out with some mild critical remarks about the current DNR government, calling it ‘recreation of the Yanukovich’s power structure.’ Zakharchenko has been very reserved about the Purgin situation, basically letting know that it is the issue of the parliament.
Purgin was (is) considered a more radical member of the DNR leadership. He was for the advancement of the DNR/LNR troops, taking back the entire Donbass and moving further, towards Kharkov and Kiev. This put him at odds with those who have been working on implementing Minsk 2 agreements, which basically freeze the conflicts.
Since last year, Zakharchenko and head Minsk 2 negotiator for DNR Denis Pushilin (now also the Donetsk parliament speaker) have been labeled by certain hot heads who wanted to continue fighting, as traitors and sleazebags. It is clear that Zakharchenko, Purgin and Pushilin want the same for their people: better life, peace and prosperity. However, they want to achieve it by absolutely different means.
Andrey Purgin announced that instead of running for office in these elections, he prefers to organize a grand social event on November 4th, which is called the Day of National Unity in Russia (As we see, Donbass has adopted all Russian holidays). He said that he is concentrating on rallying resources and volunteers to organize a grand Russian Orthodox event (Krestniy Hod) for the ‘Unity Day’ on November 4.
The Day of National Unity is one of the new Russian holidays. It reminds of the 16th century Time of Troubles and Polish aggression that resulted in occupation of Moscow, and how the country rallied at grassroots to throw out the aggressors. Purgin also announced that the hotheads I mentioned above shouldn’t expect him to go into a tough opposition to present authorities. He intends to cooperate, not fight. Wise words, in my view.
Incidentally, Andrey Purgin was at the very roots of the Donetsk People’s Republic. He was the one who proposed the term 10 years ago, well before the 2014 Kiev maidan.
Lugansk already went through its own internal power struggle between the head of LNR Plotnitsky and local Cossack commanders. The conflict was handled by Plotnitsky quietly and skillfully, proving his political mettle. Undoubtedly he had help and advice in settling this conflict. The re-shaping of the self-defence volunteer units into a regular army helped a lot.
Certain inner conflicts and misunderstandings are a natural development in such new, untested formations as DNR and LNR. The unpredictability of conflict situations diminishes as the new power structure finds its comfort zone and settles. Of course, due to the lack of political experience of these young republics, these conflicts may be mishandled in the information space. Due to the infowar time in which we live, the temporary confusion may result, but it all calms down in due time.
It has been clear from the very first referendum of May 11, 2014 that all Donbass wanted was to join Russia. When people went to the referendum to vote for independence from Ukraine, they really thought they were voting for joining Russia, following the Crimean example. About 90% or more voted for that. However, due to major geopolitical circumstances, it became impossible. I wrote about those circumstances previously on many occasions. And there is more on that below.
In the question of referendum, Donetsk and Lugansk appear to diverge. However, this may be for show.
A couple of days ago the head of Lugansk Republic Plotnitsky was asked whether a referendum to join Russia is being prepared in Lugansk. He replied that if people wanted to have a referendum and if they decided in the referendum to join Russia, the government and he, as head of LNR would honor the will of the people.
This is a very interesting statement. Basically, Plotnitsky is saying that the ball is in the people’s court. Whatever the people decide, he, as their public servant, will make happen.
Also see my previous related post: Beware of Wikipedia, a Tool in Global Info War!
Here are several most important things to keep in mind:
When the Ukraine crisis first began in January-February 2014 I said that Russia was interested in the entire Ukraine, or at least most of Ukraine, as a friendly state. Lugansk, or the entire Donbass joining Russia while the rest of Ukraine remains a US-controlled ukro-nazi mess, would not serve this purpose.
While DNR and LNR are still formally a part of Ukraine (although of course de-facto they are separate states), they are akin to a giant thorn in Kiev junta’s back. From the inside they are helping to change the entire set up of Ukraine, also helping weaken the US grip on Ukraine.
As you all know, since the beginning I had felt terrible for the people of Donbass, Odessa, Kharkov and other parts of Ukraine, who have to suffer daily from the inhumane actions of the Kiev ukro-nazis. It’s very hard on the simple citizens Donbass.
But the geopolitical reality is such that Donbass has no choice other than to continue acting as this thorn, until the status quo in Ukraine changes. You’ll all recall my predictions: there will be a shift and subsequent turnaround in Ukraine, to begin in 2016 and to be completed around 2018 (as usual, more in PREDICTIONS on top bar and in 2014 articles under UKRAINE category).
I haven’t changed my opinion since the beginning of 2014. Given the geopolitical situation, Russia is not in a position to admit Lugansk by itself, or LNR and DNR together, at this time, unless Kiev suddenly attacks Donetsk and Lugansk on all fronts, causing catastrophic destruction – and this won’t happen. EU will not let Kiev do that, plus, Ukraine army isn’t capable of any serious operation anyway. All they can do are some pinpricks in the form of occasional shelling of peaceful citizens, but even that they are unable to accomplish on any scale any more. Their hands are getting more and more tied, due to Russia’s skillful diplomacy of the past year and a half – incidentally, again exactly as I predicted.
Eventually, Lugansk and Donetsk, probably together with Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Kherson, Nikolaev, Dnepropetrovsk and Odessa, are likely to join Russia as a Novorossia autonomy, or an autonomy by another name. In that case, Pridnestrovie will also join Russia (something the Pridnestrovie citizens had been eagerly awaiting since 1991).
This may happen as Ukraine will start morphing and shrinking into a different entity closer to the end of this decade. Moldova is a big factor in this spread as well. But we are still a couple of years away from such changes.
However, promoting this referendum is a great bargaining chip. Whether LNR really makes it happen or not, by making such announcements Donbass gains more bargaining power vs. Kiev and EU.
DNR/LNR CURRENCY, RUSSIAN LANGUAGE, SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND PASSPORTS:
Donbass getting closer to Russia is a natural process. The possibility of DNR and LNR residents getting Russian passports is being actively discussed. The process has already begun. Below is a piece in Russian discussing this issue.
Because of Kiev’s financial blockade, initially both DNR and LNR had made several currencies – ruble, grivna, dollar and euro – equally admissible for payment. There was also an attempt to create their own independent currency, which has been scrapped. However, within half a year, ruble naturally pushed out other currencies. Presently, 80% of circulating currency in DNR and LNR are rubles.
LNR has just announced the introduction of the new auto license plates. These plates closely resemble Russian license plates.
Donbass has changed its holiday schedule to reflect the Russian holidays, children now study based on Russian school books and Russian language has made a full comeback to DNR/LNR schools. As we know, for 23 years before 2014, Russian language had been squeezed our of Ukrainian schools; twisted and falsified history was taught to children since early age. It still remains the case, and the anti-Russian propaganda is getting worse, in the rest of Ukraine.
Preview of the upcoming Vladimir Putin’s speech at the UNGA, and Putin’s new checkmate:
It promises to be a big event. I will try to post the actual speech on FT. As I said in the previous article about Erdogan and Assad, the US is cracking on Syria, changing its stance on Assad and fighting ISIL. This is due to the widespread failure of the US policy in the Middle East, now recognized by the US Congress; it is also due to unprecedented pressure US is experiencing from its allies, from Germany, UK, France and EU in general to Saudis and Israel.
The shift is so drastic that despite being on not-speaking terms, last Friday US Secretary of Defence had called Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu to offer an olive branch and attempt to get Russian cooperation on Syria.
It is expected that during Putin’s visit to New York US will try to negotiate for the Russian cooperation in the anti-ISIL coalition. However knowing Putin, I anticipate that he will use this opportunity to package Syria negotiations together with Ukraine and DNR/LNR. I expect both issues to be addressed simultaneously, regardless of how much US tries to avoid doing so. In these negotiations, Russia is holding all the good cards, but the US won’t give up easily. I’ll post my analysis after we hear more next week. Stay tuned!
FT NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
The New Khazarian Khaganate Earth Shift Report is coming out soon. I plan to release it next week.
I also plan a few surprise Earth Shift Reports. One of them will be about the new geopolitical faultline ripening in the Black Sea area. You’ve heard me mention Odessa in several of my previous articles. This is the city I am intimately familiar with. As a matter of fact, the entire Black Sea/Bessarabia/pre-Balkans area is where I grew up. I will explain the convoluted, sinister and very dangerous games being played in Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, Romania and Turkey, Odessa being the epicenter of the entire scheme.
In the beginning of August, 2015, I wrote this article: The Energy is Shifting! Together, We Have Averted the Worst Outcome! The worst outcome – a new world war – was averted because US was unable to create anti-Russia out of Ukraine the way they planned. However, the new Black Sea games may again put us on collision course with the global war.
As usual, I will provide my assessment and predictions. Stay tuned for the surprise Earth Shift Reports!

Calibration Reading — Earth & Personal Shift — Earth Shift Predictions — Feng Shui
Donetsk Republic announced that they had uncovered secret plans for a new massive attack on Donetsk and Lugansk by Kiev.
I have translated/summarised the urgent announcement by DNR Defence Spokesman, Eduard Basurin.
DNR received this secret intel from high level sources within Kiev army ranks.
Kiev amassed 90,000 troops on Ukraine/DNR-LNR (Novorossia) border, preparing to attack. This armed force includes 450 tanks, 2500 armored vehicles, 5 heavy rocket launchers Tochka-U and thousands in various artillery hardware. This army has been concentrated in four key locations. Mariupol, to attack Donetsk from the south; central to attack Donetsk from the west; third one to cut off Donetsk from Lugansk and fourth to attack Lugansk from the north. The reserve group is located behind these four army groupings. The north and south groupings will also cut off LNR and DNR from the Russian border in order to stop humanitarian assistance and close the circle around both republics, thus suffocating them.

On August 24, Ukraine celebrates its independence day. According to intel, today Poroshenko (oligarch, president), Yatsenyuk (oligarch, PM) and Klichko (boxer, mayor of Kiev) will announce a coalition of their three parties in order to run together in the upcoming local elections.
Ukraine will have local elections in October. Poroshenko’s ratings are down and even his former cronies distrust him. The right sector is threatening to start maidan-3 at any moment. Attempts to start a new maidan have been made by various groups, mainly protesting the economic collapse, shortages, hyperinflation and unemployment. However, every protest attempt has been squashed.
But anger and severe disappointment are brewing all over Ukraine. One day they will boil over.
Yatsenyuk’s rating is basically zero. So is Klichko’s, who can hardly string two words together and therefore is considered unfit for office. However, these three have a muscle in the form of their parties, which they lavishly finance out of those billions they stole.
Yatsenyuk is the darling of the US and Klichko is Angela Merkel’s personal protegé. Poroshenko used to be a compromise figure, convenient for both US and EU. But it appears that time has passed as no one accepts him well any more. However, Poroshenko’s ability to cling to power cannot be underestimated. He will do anything to hang on. The alternative is basically the international tribunal for crimes against humanity. Yatsenyuk and Klichko are in the same boat.
At the same time, they all have done very well for themselves, having looted what they could from the country. Oligarch Poroshenko’s wealth went up 7-fold in his one year of presidency (I had a video about that) and Yatsenyuk is now officially a dollar billionaire.
However, these three know they would lose these local elections in many regions. This is why they must try to unite.
My intel says that people in cities of Kherson and Nikolaev (south/Black Sea area) would prefer the Opposition Block. It consists of sort of remnants of the Party of the Regions and certain minor oligarchs who are for better relations with Russia, while also maintaining closer relations with the EU. In addition to the above, there are also some relatively honest people in the Opposition Block.
In Odessa, if elections were semi-honest (and this is a huge IF), the winners could be the pro-Russian, pro-Odessa-autonomy, anti-Kiev party Rodina (Motherland), and possibly also Opposition Block. Rodina is one of the main forces still legally remaining in opposition. They used to have good positions in the city council, however, many of them had to flee Ukraine and are now in exile.
A few do remain, such as my favorite Odessa politician, Grigory Kvasnyuk. Generally, there are very few opposition leaders still remaining in Odessa, who are still capable of staying afloat in today’s environment. Kvasnyuk, for instance, is constantly called to SBU for interrogations. Some of those who were able to provide a meaningful opposition perished in the May 2, 2014 fire on Kulikovo Polie, some were chased out of the country, some thrown in jail. Same picture is true for any other region of Ukraine.
However, Rodina still presents a danger to powers that be. This is why its leader, former Rada deputy Igor Markov was recently arrested by Interpol (!) in Italy, where he was on vacation, based on a trumped-up charge that he caused public disturbance in Odessa in 2007 (8 years ago!). This charge had been overturned several times by various courts, but it still get manipulated for political reasons.
The primary reason for the attack on Markov is his joining of the Committee for the Salvation of Ukraine co-organized by him, ex-PM of Ukraine Azarov and ex-Rada deputy Oleynik. The arrest, which will be overturned eventually, still will slow down the preparation for local elections and discourage the beheaded party Rodina. This is what Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk are counting on. Odessa remains a trouble spot and a huge sore for the Kiev junta, despite putting Georgian ex-president and wanted criminal Saakashvili in charge of Odessa oblast. Everything will be done to prevent decent people from being elected into city council.
Generally, Odessa is very oppressed and suppressed; people are afraid to speak up. The situation is very similar in Kiev, Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk.
The situation in Donbass is the following: Donbass is roughly divided into two halves. One half belongs with Donetsk and Lugansk Republics and another half is under junta occupation. We all remember that on May 11, 2014, the people of then Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts in their entirety voted in a referendum against Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, and for their independence. That was well before the war started.
It is understood that people all over the occupied parts of Donbass will vote for those candidates who are the closest to the Republics and furthest from the junta. This may create the situation in which these areas are formally under Kiev, but de-facto a part of LNR and DNR.
Widespread electoral fraud is also expected throughout Ukraine. However, my intel suggests that Russia, Eurasian Union and SCO are sending large election monitoring delegations to each polling station on the occupied territory of Donbass. Therefore, at least in Donbass fraud may be very hard to execute.
That’s why Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and Klichko are scrambling to join forces, attempting to boost their numbers. However, this will likely not help their chances. They are risking losing the rest of Donbass without a single shot fired, based on democratic elections.
This is one of the main reasons for the intensified shelling of Donetsk: Poroshenko and his puppet masters are attempting to make DNR and LNR lose their cool and counter-attack. After that, DNR/LNR get accused of breaking Minsk accords and the new round of sanctions against Russia begins.
According to my intel, if DNR/LNR don’t lose their cool, watching their peaceful population being bombed every day, Kiev plans to re-start war by beginning its own massive attack, as seen above. In either event, the escalation of conflict will allow Kiev to cancel local elections.
The plan is multi-prong and multi-layered, according to the best CIA playbook. The biggest prize is always Russia. The ultimate goal, if DNR/LNR are attacked full force and Minsk agreements are broken, is a renewed attempt to make Russia lose her cool and send troops to protect Donbass.
We know it was attempted multiple times since last year in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa. The latest provocation this summer was to fully blockade Pridnestrovie, where Russian peacekeepers and at least 100,000 Russian citizens reside. That was a very dangerous moment, which I watched very closely.
The Pridnestrovie blockade was orchestrated by the US agents Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk together with Romania, in order to drag Russia into an open war. However, it didn’t work out due to several skillful maneuvers by Russia and EU. Instead of Ukraine, Moldova opened its borders for Russian supplies, thus releasing pressure, at least temporarily.
The story of Pridnestrovie is still very convoluted and the next big problem is anticipated in December, 2015. All this is connected to the general Black Sea geopolitical fault line that is ripening at this time. I am watching it and will probably do a piece or two on it later in the year. Stay tuned!
Today Ukraine is celebrating its independence-from-Russia day. Some call it: ‘the independence from the common sense day.’
After participating in early celebrations and officially announcing his alliance with Yatsenyuk and Klichko, Poroshenko will the same day fly to Berlin to meet with Merkel and Hollande. Therefore, the announcement of the Porosh-Yats-Klich election coalition has been deliberately orchestrated to coincide with the independence day – for internal consumption, and with the trip to Berlin – for external consumption.
Poroshenko is trying to demonstrate something to the EU. That he is serious about staying in his post? That he means business and wants to win local elections? Or that he can in fact work with others? Or he thinks that’s how he can get more money? All of the above, I think.
There are many speculations why he is meeting with EU leaders without Putin (the Minsk and Normandy formats assume four parties participating). My view is that Lavrov and Putin have tried to instill in Holande and Merkel that Russia won’t tolerate a new escalation in Donbass, especially before the elections. It appears Poroshenko is being called on the carpet for a bit of reprimand and thrashing, but also to promise him more support if he behaves a little better.
Most analysts are sounding alarm over the upcoming new war escalation, predicting a major attempt by Ukraine to re-establish its control over entire Donbass and the Russian border. Access to the Russian border is crucial for the Republics. It is their only lifeline.
I can tell you right away such plan is absolutely doomed and this Kiev junta will never be able to take over DNR and LNR, nor the Russian border. Previous attempts to attack DNR and LNR resulted in Debaltsevo and Illovaisk cauldrons with thousands of Ukraine troops dead or taken prisoner. They won’t succeed, however, they can unfortunately cause a lot more death and destruction.
That said, Russia is now using any and all diplomatic leverage with EU to make EU pressure Poroshenko into backing off. EU isn’t interested in a new military escalation either. EU is now facing African/Middle Eastern migrant crisis of staggering proportions (see my post). They can’t afford any additional instability to the east.
At least in that, Russia and EU are united. However hard the US tries to portray a united front against Russia, EU and US are experiencing a widening rift over Ukraine. I wrote previously that EU cannot rebel openly against the US because every time they are attempting an even remotely independent policy, France or Germany experience a false flag.
They have to tread very softly, thus a very low-key meeting with Poroshenko in Berlin. Ukraine will likely be promised more money from the EU, as a sort of carrot, if it at least attempts to observe certain appearances.
So far, Ukraine has been kept on life support by both US and EU. This ties up US and EU resources. The longer such situation lasts, the better for Russia.
The initial idea was to put a wedge between Russia and EU, exhaust and break Russian economy, create anti-Russia out of Ukraine and tie up the Russian army in Ukraine after Russia would break down and send peacekeepers to Ukraine.
None of the above worked our very well for the ‘planners.’ There is a school of thought that suggests that Russia is tying up a lot of resources supporting Donbass (about 2.5 million people left there since the war started), therefore, weakening her economy.
But Donbass is one of the most developed territories of the former Ukraine, which provided during good times up to 30% of Ukraine’s GDP. Donbass can support itself.
The rest of Ukraine is much larger in size and much less productive. Kiev, western and central Ukraine were subsidised by Donbass and the rest of the South-East.
Pay attention, US and EU taxpayers! US is stuck having to support the entire Ukraine: 30-35 million people and the territory the size of France. Nuland and US State Dept spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine. How much do they spend daily now to KEEP UKRAINE ON LIFE SUPPORT, especially considering all the crooks and thieves in power, pocketing most of the US and EU infusions?
In addition to IMF and EU loans, EU provides hidden subsidies in the form of reverse gas supplies from Slovakia, Hungary and Romania. Ukraine prides itself on having gotten away from the ‘dependence’ on Russian gas.
The new gas supply route to Ukraine looks like this: first Russia send gas via Ukraine to Central Europe, or via Nord Stream to Germany. Then, part of this gas purchased by the EU gets sent BACK to Ukraine to make it seem as if Ukraine is independent from Russia. The price of what is called ‘reverse gas supply’ is lower than Ukraine pays directly to Russia.
And now a trick question: who do you think subsidises this gas and who pays for it when Ukraine, the country in de-facto default, can’t pay? That’s right, the EU taxpayers, especially Germans.
Of course, Ukraine still has to buy some gas directly from Russia, but Russia has put Ukraine on a strict pre-payment schedule.
Previously, Russia subsidised for years Ukraine’s gas purchases. The money saved on this new gas arrangement can be spent on Donbass.
Having lost some serious electric power capacity after DNR and LNR seceded (they produce 30% of former Ukraine’s electricity), Ukraine also buys electricity from Russia at subsidised prices. Russia still continues subsidising Ukraine’s electricity. Part of it is in fact Donbass electricity, which now goes through Russia and then gets routed to Ukraine in a round about way.
All the above attests to the idiocy of the Kiev junta. Just like in that old sad joke: to spite my enemy I’ll kill my goat so my children would have no milk.
Instead of having good relations with Russia and buying gas directly at a good price, they prefer to beg EU for reverse supply, inconveniencing everyone in the process. Instead of buying electricity directly from Donbass, they declare a war against them so Donbass routes its produced electricity to Russia, after which Kiev begs its enemy No. 1 Russia to sell them some electricity. When god wants to punish someone, he takes away their reason…
Of course, that’s exactly what the puppet masters who are pulling Ukraine’s strings want. They can’t manipulate sane people. They need crazies and crooks for their plan to work. Since Ukraine has turned into the world’s largest insane asylum cum mafia state, they are having a feast.
I know, the news aren’t as rainbowy as many of my readers would like. But every cloud has a silver lining. The crazier they act, the sooner the population of Ukraine will start awakening from this madness. The signs are already there. The diplomacy at large is working better and better. The restrained Russian position is already heard by some in the EU, and more and more are starting to doubt the official party line.
Recall my timeline for the turnaround in Ukraine: 2016-18. We are getting closer and it’s all developing according to plan.

Earth Shift Report 3: OLIGARCH WARS. This very comprehensive report contains lots about Ukraine oligarchs: Poroshenko, Kolomoysky and many others; about Putin and Russian oligarchs, such as Berezovsky, Prokhorov and Khodorkovsky; about Ukraine’s realities and dirty underbelly; plus, Lada reveals why Ukraine turned out this way after the collapse of the USSR. To top it off, the secret of USA’s real role in Ukraine is revealed.
Watch related video: Billionaire Poroshenko’s Fortune Explodes 7-fold (LadaRayLive 13)
According to Kiev’s official data, as voiced by the Attorney General of Ukraine, since last year, eight thousand Ukraine military defected to the side of Donetsk and Lugansk Republics: five thousand policemen and three thousand combat personnel.
I previously wrote about high-profile defections from Ukraine. This is the latest. This high-ranking officer of the National Guard says he was given unlawful orders to install internationally banned land mines in E. Ukraine. When he refused and blew the whistle, he was fired and had to flee the country.
This new revelation is likely to open a floodgate of investigations into the inhumane and illegal practices of the Kiev junta in E. Ukraine. And this is just the beginning!
The newest revelations will do a lot to withdraw the EU support for the Kiev junta. After EU support is gone, it will be harder and harder for the US to justify theirs.

My top recommendation – the best Novorossia News channel
(staffed and funded by volunteers and donations):
YouTube channel News-Front. It is the best source of up-to-date news from Donbass, Novorossia and Crimea. You have seen me sometimes translate or reference bits from this channel.
The only thing they have with embedded English subs is the 2-min daily Novorossia News Summary (with Elena Krasovskaya) – Rus: Сводка новостей Новороссии. Click on this link to access the playlist on their channel, or go to channel and scroll down till you see this title in Russian. Their subs aren’t super, but you get the idea.
They also have the following programs, but only in Russian (if anyone finds a good way of translating for YT, please do share as then everyone would be able to listen to this channel):
News. Our Crimea! – Rus: Новости. Крым наш!
Here is an example:
Great interview program called In Reality with Sergey Veselovsky – Rus: Программа “На Самом Деле”
Some interviews are with real residents of various areas of Ukraine, who dare to tell the truth of how they live, some with Novorossia soldiers and politicians, and others – with people internationally and experts.
News-Front also publishes very nitty-gritty and truthful documentaries about the Donbass war, including a lot of pretty graphic stuff. Those who want to see the magnitude of destruction and horror there, go to these playlists:
“Донбасс на линии огня” – Donbass in the Line of Fire
“Новороссия. Оружие победы” – Novorossia. A Weapon of Victory
Generally, there is precious little truth and real deal news translated into English from Novorossia and other parts. It is only the enthusiasts and volunteers such as myself and some others that make it happen.
I want to recommend to you the efforts of one such enthusiast and FuturisTrendcast friend, Nemo, who is originally from Russia and resides in Scandinavia. He just did an important translation, which I recommend everyone checks out.
For those who speak German, I think there is more truth available, as some Germans, including certain German media, as well as some Russians living there, engage in translating. I have to say that Germans are much more awake than people in the English-speaking world; however, their dissent gets suppressed all the time by their own government, working in tandem with the US forces.
Still, certain bits of truth make it to the German MSM. Under no circumstances can I say the same about the English-speaking MSM!
A couple of pieces with German translation – incidentally, these are also from News-Front DE (translated by German volunteers):
Students of Crimea respond to students of Ukraine:
Kiev Junta Implosion: Ukraine Deputy Defence Minister and Other High-Profile Defections to Lugansk and Donetsk
Kiev Junta Implosion: Ukraine Deputy Defence Minister and other high-profile insiders defect to Lugansk and Donetsk.
In the past few days, there was a wave of elite defections from Kiev to Donbass. The highest profile was the defection of General Александр Коломиец (Alexandr Kolomiyets), ex-deputy defence minister of Ukraine and a number of senior officers. They joined the Donetsk Republic.
He also said that his family had death threats and he had to secretly move them from Kiev. He also said that many of his former colleagues call him to ask how they could defect as well; however, they are afraid for their families’ lives. His prediction is that soon there will be an exodus from Kiev and many would want to come back to Donbass.
He spoke with many of the generals and they all are against this war. But since anyone who disagrees could be arrested, kidnapped or worse, killed, they just sit quietly. Mostly, the war is conducted by nazis and criminals, he said, not by regular troops.
Also defected to Lugansk Republic:
Oleg Chernousov, Head of the Lugansk Oblast Customs Services (position occupied on the Kiev junta side), citing the impossibility of working with the illegal junta full of bandits and killers of peaceful citizens: Press Conference
Brothers Miroshnichenko, both originally from Lugansk: one was an officer of external intelligence services of Ukraine and another – a diplomat, who worked at the Ukraine embassy in Paris: Press Conference
During their press conference brothers explained that they were preparing for the defection for quite some time, as they had to coordinate their simultaneous escape from Paris and Kiev, as well as get their families out of harms way. They returned to their native Lugansk, where they also have family, because they couldn’t work for the junta that was killing their people. The attitude towards those who are originally from Donbass is very bad in Ukraine and Kiev, they said, and they were treated as second class citizens, despite their positions.
They also said that many colleagues want to follow them, but most are either afraid or hope to stay for another year or two till they get their pensions, and then return (LR: big mistake!). They also predict an upcoming avalanche of defections from the Kiev junta as people get fed up.
The intelligence officer also discussed MH17. He said that they were never advised who really shot down the plane, but the entire Ukraine’s intelligence was strictly instructed to construct a narrative blaming Russia and concoct bogus evidence that Russia shot down MH17.
LR: As the junta’s end nears, more and more of those who work for it today, will see the writing on the wall. The rats will start abandoning the ship. It all goes according to plan. By 2016-2018, Ukraine will be a different country, according to predictions.
Let’s recall that I also predicted in 2014 that Ukraine army would retain allegiances to the USSR and Russia, and it will not want to fight against their own people. Unfortunately, the fascist regime in power, supported by the US and EU, successfully intimidated and pulled the wool over many people’s eyes. Nevertheless, people are starting to awaken and we see some movement in the right direction.

This article is part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON
(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)
Ukraine is very actively and aggressively re-writing history!
On April 9 the Kiev Rada equated communism with fascism. Ukraine president Poroshenko announced that Stalin started WWII together with Hitler. All communist and Soviet symbolism was banned. The leader of the practically illegal communist party of Ukraine, elderly, white-haired Petr Simonenko was arrested and had to endure an 11-hour interrogation at the SBU. Last year, communist faction (present Rada’s only legally elected) was banned and rudely thrown out of Rada. Simonenko and other communists’ homes were burned down.
Let me remind everyone that the very first thing Hitler did after coming to power was to boot out of Reichstag the very popular communists. Subsequently, German communists were killed or sent to concentration camps. Next, Hitler invaded the rest of Europe.
So, everything communist is bad, right?
Great! Then how about Ukraine also demolishes MOST apartment buildings on its territory, since they were built during Soviet times. Wouldn’t Ukrainians rather live in the street than in communist-built apartments?
Ukraine should also return DneproGes to Russia. DneproGes is Ukraine’s largest hydroelectric station build by those damn Russians and bad communists in the 1930s, which still provides 1/3 of Ukraine with unnecessary electricity. DneproGes was the first massive Soviet industrialization project, and it is widely considered the SYMBOL of the Soviet industrialization. I seriously think Ukraine should give it back, since they have no use for such communist symbol!
Also demolish all of your steel factories, tractor factories and defence factories, even the candy and cake-making factories, built by those damn communists.
Please go ahead and give back to Russia, who’s the legal heir of the USSR you hate so much, the Odessa ports, including Yuzhny and Ilyichevsk (named after Lenin, since Lenin’s patronymic was Ilyich). How ironic – the Ilyichevsk port has just been sold to AMERICANS by the cash-strapped Ukraine! Tush, tush, dear Americans. How could you buy such a testament and monument to Lenin? Not good, not good… It’s a communist symbol, after all!
Ilyichevsk port, Odessa oblast. Built in 1952 by the USSR and named after Lenin. See more on Wikipedia
And don’t forget to blow up all of Ukraine’s nuclear power stations providing the rest of Ukraine’s unnecessary electric power… Sorry, but they all were built by your worst enemies, Russians, during Soviet communist days!
You should also destroy the buildings presently occupied by your Central Rada and Ukraine government in Kiev. And the building of SBU, the secret services of Ukraine, where the upper floor has been occupied by Americans and NATO reps, on top of which American flag is placed next to the Ukrainian one. These are all Soviet-built structures, where the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and the Communist Party of Ukraine held meetings during Soviet times. How come you are still using those?
Please also don’t forget to give back to Russia all the gas and oil pipelines running through Ukraine’s territory, as well as all railroads, together with all the trains, locomotives, power lines and other infrastructure, built by those damn Soviet communists.
Actually, while we are at it, please remember to hand back to Russia the entire industrialized, export producing, developed and educated South and East of Ukraine, including: Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Zaporozhie, Krivoi Rog, Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts. All these oblasts were attached to then small Ukraine, usually called Malorossia, by communist Lenin. Please give Transcarpathia back to Hungary and Czechia, attached to Ukraine by communist Stalin. Please return to Poland Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk and a couple of other oblasts, attached to Ukraine by the same communist Stalin.
As to the Crimea once attached to Ukraine by communist Khrushchev, it has already returned itself to its rightful home.
And of course – my sincere congratulations – the cash-strapped Ukraine, with its dying economy, can forget about any investments or cash infusions from the richest creditor nation in the world, China, because a ban on communist ideology obviously includes China’s ruling communist party.

Details are scant, but a few days ago various ukro-nazi battalions gathered in Kiev demanding a bigger and better war against Donbass, with more war expenditure, bigger help from the US and NATO, and more ballistic missile bombings of the citizens of Donetsk (DNR) and Lugansk (LNR). Today, it appears the members of the same ukro-nazi battalions and their sympathisers are storming the administration of the Ukraine president Poroshenko, who according to them, has been too mild towards Donbass and too friendly to Russia. Most others would say it were the other way around, but that’s their point of view.
It has to be noted that this revolt so far is very mild compared to the 2014 Kiev maidan. No Molotov cocktails and setting police on fire, no burning tires. This may be an attempt to scare Poroshenko into taking an even tougher position against Russia, Donbass and people in other areas of Ukraine, such as Odessa and Kharkov, who don’t want to live under junta.
Also, I did mention in various past posts that Poroshenko is being prepared for the role of a sacrificial lamb, on whom Yatsenyuk and his cronies are getting ready to hang all the failures and economic collapse. I was expecting a new maidan in the spring. But the timeline may be accelerating. Unfortunately, a more pro-nazi, and even more aggressive junta headed by hawks Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Avakov nd Nalivaichenko, plus the nazi battalion commanders, would come to power, if Poroshenko were to be unseated.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile in Donbass and Odessa:
Consequences of the Ukraine army shelling of Donetsk:
There were lots of videos and other proof that appeared on the internet that shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Americans, and possibly Canadians, as well as other English-speakers, are very much a part of Kiev junta army. In my previous article I showed a video in which Polish mercenaries proudly parade their national identity. See: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.
Proofs and reports from locals in Mariupol continue pouring in that massive numbers of Western/NATO/US/Canada/UK/German/French/Polish/Lithuanian troops and weapons are being used by Ukraine army to subdue Ukrainian population, which doesn’t want to live under fascist regime. Therefore, we can say confidently, this is a foreign takeover of Ukraine by the West.
Anyone who knows Russian history remembers that in 1918 the so-called Antanta, US/UK and France, also tried to invade Russia to sway the result of the Civil War. The unabated aggression and arrogant take-over of the world by the Anglo-Americans and their cronies must stop!
Look at the video below from Mariupol. In it, clearly an American mercenary tells a reporter to ‘get outta his face.’
The new bit: Bosnian defense minister resigned this morning over the NATO/US/EU pressure to sell weapons to the Kiev government. One honest man in a sea of EU political monsters! Just imagine how many of his counterparts in POLAND, Bulgaria, Romania, France, GERMANY, US, UK, Canada, Australia gladly DO sell those weapons and provide their military!
Video by RT:
This is an outright, shameful takeover of a foreign country, as I had been saying since the beginning of 2014.
They are desperate, they don’t know what else to do to prop up the dying Kiev junta regime. But none of this will help. People everywhere are awakening, and not just in Ukraine. You all remember my prediction: new, very different people will come to power in Ukraine, and by 2016-2018 Ukraine will make a wild swing towards union with Russia, although it’s economy may be destroyed and it may be divided into 2 or 3 separate states. Alternatively, there is still a possibility of keeping what is now Ukraine as loose confederation, each part of which is separate from each other in most everything. Such confederation, if formed, will not be called Ukraine, but most likely, Novorossia. This is still in a flux.
Remember my other prediction: the main, overriding goal of the West’s takeover of Ukraine is to subdue, and preferrably destroy, Russia. This, as I also predicted previously, would backfire on the West in a spectacular fashion, in time. The more they persist, the deeper they get their claws into this, the worse will be the backlash when people in Russia, Ukraine, Eastern Europe, and in their own countries finally awaken.
More about all that in future Earth Shift Reports.

EARTH SHIFT REPORT update:
I am still writing the Earth Shift Reports I had promised my readers. New information has come out that needs to be incorporated. I will only release my reports when the energy is right and when I feel satisfied that I’ve covered everything I need to cover; in other words, when I feel I’ve captured the COMPLETE picture. Besides, I want to take into account recent requests by readers for additional information and new Earth Shift Reports. In what order the reports will start coming out? Again, it depends on which one is ready first and how the energy aligns. Please be patient. And as you may probably already know from reading my articles, your patience will be amply rewarded by new revelations!
The reports will be posted on my new site LadaRay.info and announced on FuturisTrendcast.

False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons
Ukraine is the geopolitical ground zero and the massive fault line between the old and the new. It is in Ukraine that the future of the entire mankind is now being decided.
This is why anything that happens in and around Ukraine and Novorossia/Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk) has such global resonance. Even those who don’t understand geopolitics and hidden connections between things, people and events, still sense that something important is taking place in those parts.
US president Obama claims Russia is one of the three problems the ‘world’ has, the other two being Ebola and ISIS. Obama obviously means the US-centric, petrodollar-denominated world, which has nothing to do with the perception of the world by the majority of mankind.
I am not going to re-tell the ludicrous things Obama parroted about how terrible Russia is and how great USA is in his State of the Union Address. You can find it online. I am not going to discuss how with these words the entire congregation of Obama-followers exploded with stand-up ovation, reminding me of the Maoist China or USSR Politburo, rather than of what we used to consider a democratic society.
I am also not going to talk about the anti-Russian statements by the neoliberal ameri-nazi Samantha Powers, US ambassador to the UN, whose speeches resemble the Goebbels war propaganda (she is a personal friend of Obama’s, I hear). I received some comments in the past trying to convince me that Obama would ‘in the end stand tall,’ and that I shouldn’t criticise the US politicians. Those who still harbor any illusions as to who Obama, or any other US politicians are and what they are capable of, I suggest you lose these illusions for your own benefit, to avoid severe disappointment later. In fact I very rarely, if ever, talk about US politicians because I think it’s clear who they are. In fact, they aren’t worth my time and energy. I won’t say more about Obama, although I could say quite a lot. You can see my prediction about Obama in 2015, if you follow the above PREDICTIONS link.
This post is also not about the fact that Ukraine regime’s PM Yatsenyuk recently went to Germany, where he proclaimed that Russia invaded Germany and Ukraine – a statement met with uneasy silence by Merkel and German politicians. Poroshenko meanwhile is in Davos, where he is parading a piece of the hole-ridden Volnovakha bus, which was blown up by the Kiev regime with 13 peaceful pensioners and children killed and 16 wounded. Poroshenko’s story is of course to deny the obvious, insisting that it was a shell from the Donbass self-defence that hit the bus (contrary to conclusions by military experts).
You will remember that since the beginning of 2014 I’ve predicted that not only Russia wouldn’t send troops to Ukraine, or get involved militarily, but also that Russia would slowly remold the situation in Ukraine in her favor, using all peaceful and quiet means at her disposal. I also said that eventually very different people would come to power in Ukraine and that between 2016 and 2018 Ukraine would do a wild swing to the opposite side and join Eurasian Union. I further said that Ukraine would never be admitted to the EU or NATO. Most of the above has already come true; recently German and other EU politicians have re-confirmed than no one would admit Ukraine.
Not only the maidan promises by Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Klitchko and the ukro-nazi gang that Ukrainians would soon travel to the EU visa-free and would live ‘just like Europeans do’ turned out false, bu the EU is now closing visas to even those Ukrainians who previously had them. The EU is desperately afraid to be flooded by ukro-nazi gangs and deranged armed thugs. These fears are well-founded.
But at the same time, EU is serving as an instrument of the US-led aggression in Ukraine. Certainly, the war and destruction of Ukraine is in the best interests of the US. It is also in the best interests of the US to weaken the economies of Russia and EU with their own hands, as I repeatedly warned in the past.
Throughout 2014 I wrote a lot about how the aggression in Ukraine was, and continues being perpetrated. I won’t go over the massive amount of proof I had cited in my many previous articles. Those who are new are welcome to read through my past writings.
It’s a pity that so few people seemed to have clicked on like for my last article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates. This article, like many others on my blog, reveals the inconvenient truth and contains a dire and very important warning. I had just released it, and massive proofs and confirmations of what I had said in it, began pouring in.
You probably remember that several days ago Polish government appeared to have snubbed Russian President Vladimir Putin for an invitation to the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Poland and Auschwitz from the German Nazis. The Ukraine puppet president Poroshenko and lots of other heads of state had been invited. The clincher is that it was specifically RUSSIAN/SOVIET ARMY that liberated both Auschwitz and entire Poland. In other words, the liberator, without whom I wonder what would have happened to Poland (?…), wasn’t welcome. Talk about ingratitude.
But the Polish president didn’t stop at that. He said that it was Ukrainian army that liberated Poland, thus not only falsifying history, but also insulting all those who were there – and we are talking millions of Soviet soldiers from all corners of the USSR – 100 nationalities in all, most of them Russian.
The above goes hand in hand with my article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates, which I suggest you all take more seriously. This is the anti-Russian Manchurian Candidate army at work in Poland, and elsewhere.
Neighboring Latvia (another Trojan Horse of the US in the EU) has become a true nazi state. The new law will fine 400 euro anyone who dares to speak Russian in Latvia. More about that in comments by Paul and Nemo here. There is also more in comments by Nemo here. Again, US Manchurian Candidate army hard at work!
Keep reading! Below, you will find a lot more proof of criminal involvement of Poland, US and other countries in the armed conflict in Ukraine.
The Kiev regime is on its last legs and it is trying desperately to stay afloat by blaming Russia and the poor Donbass they are so bent on destroying, in all their self-inflicted problems. Poroshenko and his cronies are also starting to get on the nerves of their US/NATO handlers.
The earth-shattering news from Ukraine keep pouring in. As if the Volnovakha bus wasn’t enough, today the ukro-nazi terrorists (the real, not imaginary ones!) blew up a bus with peaceful citizens in the center of Donetsk – the latest: 13 to 15 people dead. RT video: Donetsk bus stop bombed: Graphic footage from East Ukraine.
Meanwhile, I have gathered a lot of telling information from different expert and eye-witness sources. This information proves that Ukrainians don’t want to fight any more. Here is the summary.
In January 2015 Poroshenko announced a surprise mass mobilization of up to 200,000 people, including 60-year-olds, women and children. This occurred immediately after he went to the Unity Parch in Paris and after the Volnovakha bus shelling by his army. Read: Urgent! Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine and Ukraine’s Snowden: Whistleblower confirms MH17 was shot down by Ukraine.
Immediately several things happened, according to witnesses.
1. Huge lines consisting of healthy men trying to avoid mobilization formed in front of medical offices and hospitals.
2. Ukrainians were hiding from draft throughout 2014, as I wrote before. But now, draft-dodging is becoming an epidemic. People hide in cellars, change names, leave families behind and move to other cities and countries, as far from their home as possible.
3. Immigration to Russia has reached staggering proportions. What Russians are noticing with alarm is that, as opposed to 2014, when refugees from the Kiev junta atrocities flooded Russia, presently, the so-called maidanutie (those who are anti-Russian, pro-Kiev-maidan) are also flooding in to avoid mobilization. They are anti-Russian, yet, they run to Russia to avoid being drafted to the anti-Donbass ATO.
4. Kiev regime’s plan was to mobilize 50,000, and later, another 150,000 in stages. So far, they are only able to fulfil their quota by about 25-27% due to draft avoidance. Experts estimate that soon draft fulfillment will be down to 10% of the quota.
5. This morbid mobilization has been dubbed ‘mogilization’ from Rus/Ukr/Slav ‘mogila’ – grave. It has become known that Ukraine army acquired 80 hectares of land to bury its ATO soldiers. This information was freely posted and advertised on army site and all over Ukraine media. 80 hectares is enough to bury 160,000 people. The entire mobilization is supposed to be 200,000.
6. Despite such lofty mobilization numbers, even a fraction proved to be unreachable. Ukrainians write in social networks that they would rather go to jail than get drafted – it’s a 3-year sentence for refusing ‘mogilization.’ Advisors and experts in Ukraine are openly advising people to run away, hide, or, worst case scenario, go to jail.
7. According to the military experts I’ve been listening to, the sloppy, unprofessional, not to say, stupid actions of the Ukraine army attest to the fact that real commanders and army professionals don’t want to achieve victory in Donbass. Career officers don’t want to fight, as their heart isn’t in it. What can we talk about if the minister of defence in Kiev is a policeman. They couldn’t find a single military officer for this post.
This resonates directly with one of my early 2014 predictions that Ukraine army won’t want to fight, allegiances to Russia, old Soviet/Russian military traditions and affinity with the Donbass cossacks serving as a break. The reason is: this still is one people, one culture, who have one history – and it’s very hard to take that away despite years of falsified history and Soros/NGO propaganda. I said that Ukraine army would be ineffectual in the hands of the ukro-nazi regime. As a result of the severe unprofessionalism of the ATO operation Kiev regime keeps losing blockposts and villages to the Donbass self-defence. The Donetsk airport is the major win by self-defence. Donbass army may also advance on Mariupol, Gorlovka and Slavyansk, provided Kiev keeps provoking them.
Kiev army has been losing several hundred people a day since the beginning of their offensive. Losses ratio is 10 (Ukr army) to 1 (self-defense).
8. Ukraine soldiers sabotage ATO: This is an eye-opening audio of a web-chat by various people in Donbass. A man calls self-defense to report that a huge shell landed in front of his neighbor’s front door, but didn’t explode. They are worried it could explode any moment. A specialist confirms by the picture that it is indeed a shell of a specific calibre, but that the tip containing detonator has been removed. That’s why it didn’t explode. If it blew up, the neighbor’s house would have been gone. Another man joins to confirm that there are incidents of Ukraine army soldiers removing detonators and shooting blanks. There are also incidents of Ukraine army soldiers scribbling words “helping you however we can” on disarmed shells landing in Donbass. Link to the conversation in Russian from News-Front.
I warned about this last year – and here we go again. This site, News-Front (former anna-news), is very good, with lots of authentic hands-on info you won’t find anywhere else. However, because they are so good and therefore dangerous, they keep being deleted and sabotaged by YouTube, Ukraine and their handlers. So, watch any vids I link from them asap, before they get deleted.
9. In the end of 2014, as people relaxed to celebrate the New Year’s and Rozhdestvo, the US and NATO sent massive amounts of advanced military hardware to Ukraine. Alarmed messages were coming in daily that 4 major airports, including Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov and Zaporozhie had been closed for at least one to two weeks, while they were receiving huge amounts of military hardware from NATO countries. At least 2 ships – one from Australia and one from Canada – docked in Odessa port. Officially, they brought winter uniforms for Ukraine ATO army. However, the rumor is that there were weapons as well. Odessa also reports that ships from France and US docked with armored army vehicles being unloaded.
10. Donbass self-defence has just liberated the strategically important Donetsk Airport. Kiev troops shelled the peaceful citizens of Donetsk from the enormous territory of the airport. After the airport was taken, self-defence discovered large numbers of American-made weapons, as well as a lot of Polish-made items. Some of the dead left behind were Poles (with Polish IDs, wearing Polish-tagged clothes, etc.) Another group of dead bodies were identified as muslims based on specific anatomic details. Throughout 2014, Kiev touted its soldiers sitting inside the airport as ‘brave and invincible cyborgs.’ Self-defence now thinks that at least some ‘cyborgs’ were actually the muslim mercenaries who stayed behind. Several days prior, self-defense allowed everyone who wanted to leave before the final attack on the airport. All Ukrainians left unharmed. It’s interesting that prior to leaving, Ukrainians had burned all the corpses of their dead. For what purpose? To avoid identification?
Some information suggests that muslims, who look different, chose to stay as leaving would have given away the fact that they were foreign mercenaries. It appears that the remaining Polish mercenaries also stayed as their accent would have given them away as well. Those who remained were promised that they would be liberated later, when the general attack by the Ukraine army begins. As we know, that plan failed, and moreover, Ukraine army lost 2 more blockposts and a couple of villages.
Below are several corroborating videos and my partial translation.
(For a more detailed translation, try the closed captioned feature available on YT)
POLISH MERCENARIES PROUDLY DISPLAY THEMSELVES IN UKRAINE:
German security expert, Michael Lüders, on German channel Phoenix-TV: there is information that 500 US mercenaries from Blackwater are fighting on the Kiev regime side. Perhaps there is a divergence starting between EU and US. It seems, EU is starting to understand that EU’s and American interests in Ukraine aren’t the same, especially when it comes to relationship with Russia. (As my readers know, since the beginning of 2014, I had been warning about EU needing to distance itself from the US, realizing that US pursues the goals of: 1. putting a wedge between Russia and EU, and 2. weakening Russia and EU’s economies. If they are finally starting to grasp that – good. But to me it’s simply mind-boggling how clueless EU politicians are if to date they are only starting to understand what should have been clear from the start. Of course it doesn’t help that EU politicians are utterly dependent on the US – LR) Russian translation and German original.
Interview with Ukrainian patriot, head of the movement Anti-Voina (anti-war) Viktoria Shilova, Dnepropetrovsk: Double standards of Ukrainian elites and the horrors of civil war. О двойных стандартах поведения украинской элиты, Виктория Шилова.
Fresh Interview with eye-witness Dima, citizen of a small industrial city of Artemovsk on the occupied by Kiev side of Donbass. The young man says that Kiev regime distributes leaflets to every worker throughout the city “inviting” people (he adds, like a wedding invitation) to appear in a certain place as their patriotic duty. When people show up, they tell them they have just been mobilized into Ukraine’s army. The young man also says that no one is planning on enlisting, that they would rather go to jail.
From my other source: Another creative way Ukraine mobilizes is this: whenever any man comes to a nursery or kindergarten to pick up his child, he is also served with mobilization papers.
More from the same young man: prices are up for everything, including utilities, housing, transport, food, gas, clothes, medicine, mobile phones. They are suffocating the population. All borders and roads have been closed down. People are very confused, don’t know what to do and where to run. People are very scared.
He says he is a former contract soldier, and can say that the troops occupying his city are not local. They get drunk in public, swear and threaten the population; they go to the local hospital’s maternity ward and yell/swear, interrupting operations. When doctors tell them to be quiet, they intimidate them. At night they engage in drunken shoot-outs next to public housing. Based on what locals overhear, seems like a lot of them come from Lvov, Kiev, Cherkassy, with Western Ukraine prevailing. When they show up in stores, they rudely shove people out of their way and order everyone around. They behave like occupiers, certainly not like part of the same people – the WWII German Nazi occupation comes to mind.
He goes on: everyone wants to be with Russia. No one wants to be a part of Ukraine, people can’t wait for the Donbass army to come and free them. Everyone wants to be a part of DNR, but it’s a little late for that, Dima says. (He’s understandably depressed, but he’s certainly wrong, it’s not late – this is just the beginning. The tide will turn eventually – LR).
Press conference of the DNR Head Zaharchenko and Ukrainian soldiers taken prisoner in Donetsk airport: ‘Ukraine left us to die, they need only cannon fodder.’ They were lied to and never told that the operation they were being sent for involved heavy fighting. Some arrived to the front barely a few hours prior to being taken prisoner. They were the only survivors in their respective units.
Interview with military analyst Konstantin Sivkov: Ukraine incapable of sustaining any serious systematic military operation. Ukrainian officers don’t want to fight. Ukraine defence minister and staff incompetent. Военный аналитик: украинская власть не способна обеспечить планомерную боевую операцию 21.01.2015
News-Front interview with Oleg Tsarev, Novorossia Parliament Speaker, former Ukraine Rada Deputy and presidential candidate, whose house was burned down and who was severely beaten by ukro-nazis while running for Ukraine president (I discussed that in one of my video on Lada Ray YT channel). Tsarev has a lot of intel channels he has kept in Kiev. He is one of the best intel sources for what’s happening inside the regime.
Host: What are the main reasons for the new massive offensive of Kiev against Donbass, terrorist acts in Donetsk and Volnovakha, an why is Kiev losing again?
Tsarev: The Ukraine regime was seriously hoping that on 1/19 the EU would recognize DNR and LNR as terrorist organizations. That didn’t happen. The issue is very grave for them, because if ATO is conducted by Kiev without any terrorists present, then the gravity of the war crimes falls on Kiev; and as we know, war crimes have no expiration date. The new offensive in Donbass was supposed to disrupt the possibility of peaceful negotiations. It’s the main goal of the USA – not to allow Russia and EU agree on peace in Ukraine. This has been achieved – negotiations were sabotaged.
Besides, Poroshenko is left without any allies in Ukraine. Yatsenyuk and Turchinov are trying to unseat him and US is unhappy with him. Poroshenko wanted to attack Donbass to try to convince everyone he is tough. Meanwhile, Yats, Turch and Avakov are secretly meeting to try to create a narrative for blaming all problems in Ukraine on Poroshenko. Intel says he will be blamed for the ATO failures, grivna fall, economy collapse and shortages.
Also, the reason they thought this new offensive would be successful was because the army reported their readiness. They had program minimum: occupying 1/3 to 1/2 of the DNR and LNR territory; and program maximum: taking over the entire Donbass and killing all ‘separatists.’ The Ukraine military wrote in their reports that they knew that Donbass self-defence would not shell the areas occupied by their citizens, hence they considered obtaining those territories a piece of cake.
The data Ukraine military supplied to Poroshenko was that Ukraine had amassed a 200,000 army; that the army was fully re-armed. In addition to everything, the airports in Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk were closed down for weeks to receive massive infusion of NATO weaponry and hardware that was supposed to fully re-arm them for this offensive. After all this massive preparation, it turned out that no one wanted to fight and the army was unable to perform any serious military action.
There are, of course, terrorist battalions and nazis that are still fighting, but it’s not the war they expected. This is a broken up, confused civil war.
Host: professor of Georgetown University, the Potomac Foundation president Philip Harber (sp?), said that he was a guest at the ukro-nazi battalion Dnepr 1 deployed in Donbass, and he personally counted dozens of Russian tanks crossing the border. In other words, no radar or satellite could confirm this, yet this professor visually, being far away from the border, personally ‘saw’ Russian tanks. This professor now calls on the US to supply Kiev with advanced lethal weaponry to counter ‘Russian aggression.’ In other words, Russia sends humanitarian convoys in white trucks, while US wants to deploy lethal weaponry.
Tsarev: What you mentioned, our intel says they already have supplied all that. It had been delivered during the closure of the 4 airports.
In conclusion, the following alarming intel.
1. Responding to a question, I said in my recent article: “Problem is US and Ukraine completely lost it and are too dangerous; they can concoct another false flag in a jiffy. This worries me most.” And just almost as soon as I wrote this, the following warning by analyst from Kiev, Rostislav Ishenko, came up: Kiev is extremely desperate.The country is falling apart and they can’t win a war against Donbass no matter how they try. Their US handlers are unhappy with them, while the EU is waking up, doubting the Kiev story more and more.
(Examples: many Germans are openly criticizing Merkel’s position of subservience to the US; during Poroshenko’s trip to Geneva, he was met with boos and protests; in the most progressive northern part of Italy, locals re-named one of their squares ‘the square of the Odessa Martyrs’ after the Odessa Kulikovo Polie May 2, 2014 massacre – LR).
Therefore, warns Ishenko, Kiev will attempt a massive false flag in order to prolong its existence. This false flag has to be huge in scope, preferably, with thousands of victims. They already had MH17 with almost 300 dead, yet even that didn’t create enough resonance. They need something much bigger to again sway EU into a tough position against Russia. Of course it will be blamed on Russia and/or Donbass self-defence.
Some think that this could be a terrorist act on one of the three main nuclear stations of Ukraine: Zaporozhskaya – the largest in Europe, closest to Donbass and Russia; Yuzhnaya – near Odessa, with potential poisoning of the Black Sea; or Rivno Station – in the western Ukraine ukro-nazi/Bandera capital of Rovno, which is geographically closest to the EU. The warning about a nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine, compared to which Chernobyl is a tiny blip, has been circulating for a while.
However, Ishenko thinks that because a nuclear station explosion won’t achieve the effect of a lot of victims at once, it would be something else. I am thinking: perhaps a terror act against foreign diplomats in Kiev, blamed on self-defense; assassinating president Poroshenko together with other politicians; blowing up the Central Rada with all deputies in it; or a mass killings of various activists, could be even ukro-nazis, as some examples.
2. Second warning is that Kiev, in its desperation, may openly declare a war against Russia. This idea has been expressed by many in the Kiev regime. I personally think this would be suicide and a very quick one at that, for the Kiev regime. I don’t think even they are stupid enough for that. But for what it’s worth, this is what’s circulating.
My opinion: a massive false flag is a clear and present danger. I think everyone should talk about it everywhere in order to dissuade them from executing it. Some false flags have already been prevented because people made it public and their plans had to be cancelled. So, tweet, FB, share this info!

FREE Earth Shift Report 2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY
(How the falsified history of Ukraine was developed and what lessons it teaches us)
Ukraine and Novorossia Elections
As a start, I will summarize some of the latest news and whispers from Ukraine.
The Rada elections in Kiev were largely predictable. Intercepted US State Dept emails from as early as 2006 called Poroshenko ‘our man in Kiev.’ Poroshenko, who has been now appointed president of Ukraine by his Washington handlers, expected a win in these Rada elections. However, his block finished a close second to Yatsenyuk’s – just over 20% each. The two rival parties cannot be distinguished even with a magnifying glass. Obviously, their Washington handlers want to keep both Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk’s egos in check by balancing them out against each other. The good old divide and conquer…
The relatively low showing of the openly nazi parties was due to two factors: the people are sick and tired of their violence and Ukraine has been told by their EU and US handlers to tone down that violence as much as possible because it makes their masters look bad. Still, the field commanders and nazi leaders, who can shoot and torture, but not think, will be in the Rada. Get ready for lots of loud bangs.
The surprise of the elections was the nearly 10% gained by what is considered pro-Russian Opposition Block, the remnant of the Party of the Regions and other forces squeezed and burned out of the country. The hastily organized Opposition Block is widely thought to be a project of the oligarch Levochkin. Therefore, this is still a fight between oligarchs for power. However, there are some semi-decent politicians in this block, who refuse to give up and intend to continue defending the rights of the Russian-speaking majority in Ukraine which are being brutally suppressed. These are nevertheless mostly business people with their own interests (or representing the interests of corresponding oligarch), so I wouldn’t be too hopeful about them. Ironically, the Opposition Block deputies are also the only ones who have any hope of keeping Ukraine together. Every time the population of Ukraine sees the rest of these ‘deputies’ fighting in the Rada, they will be reminded how pointless it is to try to reason with violent thugs, thus convincing the majority to secede.
Ukro-nazis already threatened the Opposition Block politicians not to show their faces in the Rada, or else. Considering these 10% are the only remaining politicians with some knowledge and experience of governing, without them Ukraine’s collapse would be expedited even further.
About 1/3 of the new Rada deputies are on oligarch Kolomoysky’s payroll. This one rules his vassals sitting in Dnepropetrovsk as his fiefdom, while attempting to create an alternative, oligarch-ruled version of Novorossia.
The official number for the country-wide election turnout is 52%, which observers feel is a falsification. Some observers and journalists were told to leave right before the voting ballots would be counted. When they returned, the see-through voting urns – almost empty before – would magically feel up with ballots.
Anna News reports: The simple people on the Ukraine territory are scared to talk for fear of SBU knocking on their door and dragging them off to jail, or for fear of being kidnapped and beaten by nazi thugs roaming cities and towns. Anna News interviews simple people from Ukraine about how they feel, how they live, etc. Many started refusing such interviews for fear of prosecution. From Kherson on the Black Sea the locals report that people were completely apathetic during elections and most decided not to vote, the turnout was extremely low.
Ukro-nazi justice: Several days ago people in many countries commemorated 6 months since the brutal burning of 42 people alive in Odessa. The city people feel extremely intimidated and scared after that event. Meanwhile, Kiev authorities celebrated the gruesome date by announcing a criminal case against Odessa police for letting go of the activists of the anti-maidan arrested after the ukro-nazis attacked them and burned to death their friends on Kulikovo Polie on May 2. Note, no attackers were arrested that day. No criminal investigation to determine and bring to justice the attackers was ever initiated. All these nazi thugs are still walking free, inflcting pain and thorough on others elsewhere in Ukraine. Meanwhile, those who were victims of the attack were arrested, but later let go after the large crowd of locals demanded their release. Now, Kiev is trying to prosecute those officers who let the victims go.
Officially Odessa had the lowest election turnout in Ukraine after Lugansk and Donetsk. Since we know Lugansk and Donetsk didn’t really vote, it’s safe to assume that Odessa’s real turnout was close to zero.
One brave granny from Odessa’s neighboring Nikolaev, who isn’t afraid of prosecution, said that at most 10% of the Nikolaev people voted in these Rada elections, out of these 75% voted for the Opposition Block. She says that the city has been infiltrated with violent western Ukraine nazis and bosses appointed by Kiev. However, there is a silent resistance that is waiting for the opportune moment to strike back. People are still disappearing. Unemployment is universal. There is no heat or hot water despite cold.
People from various areas of Ukraine report the same: waiting when the junta weakens sufficiently so they could take their power back. The longer this lasts (as I predicted) the more people get disgusted and ready to change the present regime.
There is more and more talk everywhere about changing the name of the new country to Novorossia. Novorossia means New Russia. The South and East don’t want anything to do with Ukraine any more – read more below to see where the name ‘Ukraine’ originated from. That will give you a good idea why people don’t want to keep it as a name for the country that will emerge out of the remnants of today’s incongruent conglomeration. The whispers about Novorossia include South, East, Kiev, all of central and northern Ukraine. The idea is to have a country without oligarchs that are presently strangling the failed Ukraine project. However, most agree that Western Ukraine, particularly Lvov and Galichina, where most ukro-nazis are from, is to be excluded from Novorossia.
Meanwhile in Donbass, the nucleus of the future Novorossia: The elections of November 2nd had a record turnout of over 70% on average. From the live streams and eye-witness footage of the DNR and LNR elections it’s clear that people were very passionate about voting. Despite cold and a threat of bombings, many stood in line for hours and hours to cast their vote. The see-through ballot urns were visibly full everywhere. The result again was predictable as the acting heads of both Donetsk and Lugansk governments received the majority of votes. Citizens interviewed while standing in lines to vote were saying how important these elections were for them and that they were voting to be with Russia. This info from Anna News.
The next steps are preparations for the winter and building the new administrative and government structures corresponding with the idea of the ‘people’s republics.’ Both DNR and LNR are now oligarch free. They are still working on redirecting inward their cash flow, taxes and income. These elections legitimize the heads of state, giving them a mandate to act more resolutely.
International observers present in Novorossia elections came from Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, France, Italy, Germany, Abkhazia, Russia and USA. They unanimously announced that elections were transparent, well-organized and democratic. Kiev immediately announced that each observer is now persona non grata in Ukraine. The Greek observers retorted they weren’t interested in visiting Ukraine for as long as it’s fascist. All those who participated/voted in the elections have been labeled terrorists by Kiev (that’s one and a half million terrorists).
The fifth Russian humanitarian convoy consisting of 100 trucks arrived to Donetsk and Lugansk. The West and Kiev immediately called it yet another Russian invasion and labeled diapers, flour, canned baby food and reconstruction materials the military cargo.
Rosenergo sent specialists to repair the badly damaged power lines. Both cities have restored 50% of their power with the help of the Russian specialists. Power also means heat. Since Donbass is sitting on all the coal in the world, at least they definitely won’t freeze in the winter, unlike Ukraine. DNR and LNR announced that they would be willing to sell their coal to Ukraine, should Kiev ask. However, Ukraine is proudly keeping silence preferring to freeze to death.
The Rabid Russophobia in Ukraine
When we talk about the situation in Ukraine today, it’s hard not to notice the exceptionally rabid Russophobia that permeates every pore of Ukraine’s existence. I grew up in Odessa, which still is a part of the artificial state of Ukraine. I went to school with kids from extremely diverse backgrounds. I studied Ukrainian since second grade. My mother was Ukrainian. I traveled all over Ukraine, all over the former USSR and all over the world. I am someone who has repeatedly accurately predicted major global events and developments… I have never seen anything like this, and could never imagine something like this happening in Ukraine.
When I say I’ve never seen anything like this I mean the turnaround that Ukraine has experienced since 1990, when I said goodbye to those parts forever. Sure, in certain parts of the world, for example in the Middle East, the West is ardently hated. But such hatred is based on centuries of Western aggression. It was no different in the 20th or 12th century (recall the Crusades). Yes, there is a pathological hatred of Russia in the West (excluding the sane parts of Western society). But the story hasn’t changed whether you look at the 20th, 19th, 18th, 17th, or earlier centuries.
What is artificially called Ukraine, and what was called historically Malorossia and Novorossia, before that Kievskaya Rus and Galitskaya Rus, is a completely different story. It is the same culture and people as Russia, who speak the same Russian language – granted, with some variations. There are cultures so much more different from the core Russian culture that nevertheless feel absolutely at home in Russia, considering the Russian culture their own.
Moreover, a Gallop poll conducted in 2008 on the post-Soviet space concluded that 5/6th of the residents of Ukraine consider Russian their main native language. Source: Anatoly Vasserman.
Therefore, it is absolutely impossible to explain what is happening in Ukraine from the cultural difference standpoint. The explanation is found elsewhere.
Clearly, should a complete freedom of expression and equal status with Ukrainian be given to Russian, very soon Ukraine would stop needing to be independent as the same culture and language will draw people from Russia and Ukraine together. This is exactly what those who want to divide and conquer, who want to assert their local power, cannot allow. To preserve the sovereignty of Ukraine’s power hungry elites and various imperial and global ambitions of NWO elites, it is necessary to discriminate against the rights of the majority of the population, it is necessary to prevent the population from speaking and thinking in their native language. Hence forced ukrainization and other ugly things I will talk about below.
I have been following Ukraine very closely ever since the maidan started in the end of 2013, and I have noticed a very interesting metamorphosis. If in the beginning of 2014 all Ukraine politicians, including Yanukovich and Poroshenko, absolutely always spoke Ukrainian in public to emphasize their ‘ukraine-ness,’ presently, Ukraine politicians, including rabid Russophobes, ukro-nazis and Poroshenko himself, speak Russian all the time during press conferences and Rada meetings. Of course, they also always spoke Russian in private because this is a much more natural language for them to speak. There are two reasons for that: 1. After threatening to nuke all the Russians, and after the massive exodus out of Ukraine, they are now trying to pacify the Russian-speaking majority in the country that it’s safe to stay. 2. This is also a bid for votes.
The rhetoric has changed like this: “we are not against Russian language or the Russian-speakers, we are against the big, threatening Russia that used to give us free gas and now is refusing to do so; we are against the mean Russia that used to subsidize our economy since Soviet times, and now is refusing to do so. Please, feel free to speak Russian anywhere you go, no one is going to beat you up or kill you for that any more (they did during and after maidan), but we’ll still ban ALL Russian papers, TV or journalists. They are all terrorists because they dare to tell the truth about what’s really happening in Ukraine.”
Certainly, some of this utter stupidity combined with pathological hatred had been brewing under the surface for a long time. In fact, there have always been two Ukraines: one was this nice and peaceful, sometimes exceedingly naive and sleepy place where I grew up; another – the vicious, the hateful, hiding in the shadows and secretly awaiting its chance to attack. This second place was continuously nourished and fed for centuries by certain forces from the West. The flame of hatred was kept artificially alive so at the right moment it could break through and scorch everything in sight.
The fire could have been much worse and the devastation could have been much bigger, if not for the absolute brilliance and level-headedness of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, and his team.
Post-Soviet Republics and Russia
To understand the background of the Ukrainian situation and its artificial Russophobia, it’s useful to look at other post-Soviet republics.
During Soviet days, the neighboring Moldova was in mint condition due to constant infusions of resources by the Russian Federation – the same thing that happened in Ukraine and other Soviet republics. Brezhnev in particular had a soft spot for Moldova as he worked there at one point. Originally, Brezhnev was from Ukraine, and he heavily invested in Ukraine as well. Russia promoted local cultures, invested and industrialized heavily in ALL 14 Soviet republics, including in large part the Baltics – Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania – who now love to talk about how “Russians oppressed them.”
After the USSR collapse, Russia withdrew from all former republics to deal with her own problems, and as a result most republics quickly became poor and destitute.
Moldova’s elections are coming up and the country is being torn between the EU and Eurasian Union. While the majority of the population wants to be a part of the Eurasian Union, the elites are dragging the country towards EU and towards absorption by Romania. The amount of anti-Russian propaganda in Moldova is mind-boggling as well. In 1990-1992 Moldova went through today’s Ukraine scenario, on a smaller scale. The result was that the richest, most industrialized and productive part of then Moldova, Pridnestrovie, seceded. Presently, other parts of Moldova are threatening to secede, especially Gagauzia and the north. Much more here: LRL2: Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
I am preparing a separate Earth Shift Report that will address the Baltics and particularly, Latvia, which just had parliamentary elections. Stay tuned for that.
Incidentally, neither Latvia nor Estonia ever existed as separate states. These were territories that passed from Germany and Sweden to Russia as a purchase or based on a peace treaty. I could go much deeper in history, but suffice it to say that it was Lenin, who for the first time gave Latvia and Estonia a status of an independent ‘state.’ These ‘states’ only exist thanks to Lenin’s decree. Others, such as Ukraine, only existed as ‘Soviet Socialist Republics’ in the context of the Soviet Union. Lenin was the ‘founding father’ of their respective nations. It’s interesting that instead of adoring Lenin, all these ‘independent and democratic nations’ hate him pretty viciously and destroy his monuments. Just shows the level of reasons and lucidity of these people.
Out of 14 republics (excluding the Russian Federation), only Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan managed to preserve their Soviet-built enterprises and make them pay in the new era. Belarus also managed to build on them, creating the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle.’ Belarus succeeded because of the cosy relationship with Russia, therefore getting gas at heavily discounted price which makes its exports very competitive. The latter three – due to their own huge reserves of oil and gas, discovered and industrialized by Russia.
Another place that managed to preserve the Soviet inheritance is the break-away republic of Pridnestrovie (formerly part of Moldova) – but without any oil or gas.
The rest squandered their Soviet inheritance to various degree. However, like spoiled brats, some of them blamed Russia for their own mistakes and thievery. The spoiled brats in this case are Georgia, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine. These are all former republics that look to the West. When the USSR fell apart they lost Russia as that ‘parent’ that took care of them, oftentimes spoiling them by giving them more than leaving for herself. Now brats want to latch onto the next ‘surrogate parent’ – EU. The goal is to take, giving little in return. However, the West doesn’t work that way. They won’t give anything for free, in fact they like to take more than they give. Meanwhile, Russia also learned her lesson and doesn’t want to squander her resources for nothing any more.
Thus, the countries that are used to latching on to someone stronger are left in the cold. This breeds irrational hatred that can be maliciously manipulated.
Here is a crucial point to understand about Russia! Unlike the Western empires, such as UK, US, Spain and France, who looted and drained resources of those countries they conquered, Russia drained herself to give to her satellites. Such imbalance had to end badly: on Russia’s side, due to the resentment of the core Russian population; on the side of the republics, due to their sense of absolute entitlement.
As a result, in the 1990s – 2000s, a very strange situation developed, when Russia still supplied Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine and Moldova with gas based on the heavily subsidized Soviet-entitlement-style prices, and in return, Russia got bashing, backstabbing and direct provocations from said republics. At the very same time, large parts, if not most populations of these republics spoke Russian and lived off Russian tourism and banking. A great example of this is the Baltics: Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. The same three Baltic republics, plus Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia, while displaying animosity and openly threatening Russia with NATO expansion, happily continued exporting massive amounts of their products to Russia. This ended recently when Russia adopted a new import policy and embargo.
Subsidizing all these republics was all fine and good while USSR was doing well, but since it took away the resources from Russia proper and gave them disproportionately to the periphery, discontent grew in Russia when the USSR started collapsing. This generated a desire to be separate from the former ethnic republics in Russia proper, which didn’t help with the general relationship with said republics. Russia eventually recovered and started doing on average better than during Soviet times, thus proving that Russian resources had been indeed drained by the periphery subsidies.
But at the same time that Russia withdrew from the republics, US advisors, Soros, NGOs and NWO neocon/neoliberal influences moved in. Presently, we are observing the disastrous results of Russia’s withdrawal from the geopolitically important territories.
However, eventually the pull of Russia, affinity with her culture and worldview, combined with the economic benefits of working in Russia, proved to be so enormous that before long, massive numbers of immigrants from former Soviet republics flooded Russian cities and countryside.
The ignorant president of the USA, Obama, in a speech designed to calm down the Baltics (Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania), recently stated that Russia is so bad that no one wants to live there.
In reality, Russia is #2 country in the world for immigration after USA. At this rate, it will become #1 pretty soon. Massive numbers of residents of various post-Soviet republics work in Russia as guest workers. This especially concerns Ukraine (5.5mln Ukrainians out of arguably 39 million population: 45mln minus 2mln in Crimea and 4 mln in DNR and LNR) and Moldova (700,000+ out of 3.6 mln population). Kyrgyzstan and Armenia numbers are even higher as 1/2 of the population or more work in Russia. Large numbers immigrate from Georgia, Korea, and Central Asia. There are over 3 million Chinese immigrants in Russia. There is growing immigration from the West as well.
Meanwhile, up to 1/2 of the population of the Baltics immigrated to the West. Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are empty.
Western Propaganda in Ukraine
The Western style propaganda war was unleashed in the oligarch and Western NGO controlled Ukrainian media throughout the 1990s and 2000s. It has culminated between 2004 Orange Revolution and now. Soros-sponsored history books rewrote the entire history of Ukraine to prove that Ukrainians were completely separate from Russians. Western-trained journalists and Western-sponsored newspapers and TV have been promoting “western values’ and bashing anything Russian for over 20 years.
Most journalists from Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries were trained in Poland. Poland acted, and still does, as the massive training camp for anti-Russian media, opposition politicians and color revolutionary training (meaning how to throw Molotov cocktails more effectively and how to set buildings on fire). Trainers in these training seminars and camps are almost exclusively American, Canadian or British. Russian TV did some stories on these secret seminars held oftentimes in an inconspicuous Polish neighborhood. They obtained the lists of instructors with clearly English-sounding names. When they tried to film the inside through the window or glass door, the curtains would be drawn immediately or the door barricaded – all that caught on film.
As some of you may recall, just recently Poland was also implicated in the secret CIA prison and illegal torture scandal. CIA kidnapped people by the thousands and shipped them to the Polish secret prisons, where US torture laws didn’t apply, in violation I might add, of the EU laws.
As a result of this massive subversion of Ukraine, the old spites have been brought out of the woodwork and spun in the media to suit agendas alien to simple Ukrainians. Most of these spites belonged to the western Ukraine nazis, humiliated as a result of their defeat in WWII together with Hitler; others were the old spites of Poland or Lithuania whose past imperial ambitions were defeated more than once by Russia. These irrelevant spites were imposed on the rest of Ukraine.
It is clear that $5 billion Victoria Nuland was bragging about that US spent ‘to subvert Ukraine,’ wasn’t all they spent over the years. They had to pay off the sell-out journalists, fiction history book creators, politicians, and let’s not forget the equipping, training and financing the ukro-nazis from western Ukraine.
The West also had to feed the greediest of them all – Ukraine oligarchs who have been controlling and strangling the poor Ukraine since 1991. Poroshenko – real name Valtsman – is one of them. Valtsman Sr., the father of the Ukraine president, was an underground millionaire and crook from Odessa, who served several years in jail for stealing goods by the trainload during Soviet times. Greed runs in the family.
Incidentally, Ukraine’s president Poroshenko is one of the oligarchs controlling the media. He famously said that he would never sell the Channel 5 he owns. Here is the fact he doesn’t even try to hide: through his Channel 5 he had been influencing the public opinion during the 2004 Orange Revolution and throughout this year’s maidan and subsequent presidential election. So do a handful of other oligarchs controlling the country.
The scale of the lies of the Ukraine media can only be compared to the German Nazi propaganda circa Hitler. Some believe they have gone much further. As much as the Western MSM propaganda is mind-boggling, Ukraine today takes the cake. Russians are constantly accused of invasion, despite the fact that to this day, not a shred of evidence, nor a single picture, footage, or any other conclusive document has been presented. Ukraine MSM routinely lies, showing the Donbass self-defense, consisting of local citizens and volunteers from other countries, including Serbia, France and Spain, and calling it Russian troops. Kiev MSM routinely lies that the Donbass self-defense has shot at local citizens (their own families, in other words) and blew up their own houses. With that, the footage shown would be that of the destruction caused by the Ukraine army shelling. According to the Kiev media, the mass graves found in Donbass occurred because those people killed themselves with their hands tied behind their backs, then neatly dug out graves and buried themselves. Why hasn’t Himmler thought of this! Yeah, I forgot, Himmler was a bit smarter than that.
Meanwhile, Ukraine army openly hired well-paid mercenaries, including those from Poland, Georgia, Romania, Sweden, and other Western countries. Some of these mercenaries bombed innocent civilians in Donbass. Per reports, various US advisors still work by thousands in Ukraine.
Of course we all know the lies associated with MH17 downing.
At the same time, Ukrainians started officially referring to Russians as ‘Moskali’ – derogatory ‘from Moscow.’ By that logic, citizens of Siberia are also from Moscow. This is a direct attempt to incite hatred. This is also done to diminish anyone who is Russian – after all, Moscow is rather small compared to the entire Russian territory.
The word ‘Moskal’ isn’t Ukrainian, but Polish. The role of Poland in this whole disaster in Ukraine is very prominent and is quite a separate story. At one point, when the tribunal will be looking into war crimes in Ukraine, I suspect much ugliness will surface about the extent of Poland’s involvement.
At the same time, the citizens of Donbass are being made look like insects. They call them “coloradi,” as in ‘Colorado beetle’ because the ‘Georgievskaya Lentochka’ – the historic Russian ribbon worn by many as a reminder of the Great Victory in WWII (you’ve probably seen such flags and ribbons) consists of black and orange stripes.
Georgievskaya Lentochka commemorating the courage and sacrifice in the Great War (WWII)
This is a deliberate belittling and dehumanizing of the Russian-speakers as part of the massive brainwashing campaign of the Ukrainian population. If they are insects, then it’s fine to kill and bomb them. It’s hard for most humans to kill other humans. But if they are insects, or separatists, or Russian invasion – no problem. I talked about how the divide and conquer strategy worked historically in Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? All this is happening in front of our very eyes in Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries. The one difference is that presently the power is shifting rapidly from the West to the East, so the old playbook doesn’t work any more.
In reality, Georgievskaya Lentochka draws on the coloring of the tiger and symbolizes courage, power and discernment.
This ancient symbol is also a combination of the sun – orange color, and earth – black color. In other words, it’s a unity of the heaven and earth wisdom, thus symbolizing the yin/yang balance.
I have recently listened to the popular radio show by a well-known Russian comedian and film-maker Mikhail Zadornov called “Neformat: The Divided States of America.” Zadornov always had an independent streak and sharp tongue, often criticizing powers that be, including Putin. Even he now supports Putin. That said, he was a close friend of Yeltsin in the early 1990s, and he was at the time, as many others in Russia, pro-Western democracy. He admits he changed his views ever since, which is a mark of a smart man – only fools don’t evolve. Here is a quote from Zadornov: “Don’t malign the Soviet Union, don’t cut off your roots. Those who spit at their past, don’t have a future. By the way, all those who lived during Soviet times now recall it as the best time of their life. Back then, there were many more good, kind people compared to today, when we live under capitalism.”
Incidentally, here is the video in which ukro-nazis are demolishing the largest in the world historic monument to Lenin and beating up people who try to object: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy, and related, The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 2: Letter From a Russian Liberal.
Only then we can defeat Russia when we make Russians in Ukraine hate Russians in Russia – whatever Western politician said that in the 19th century knew exactly what he was talking about. Think about it! If I heard this quote, so did those in the West whose life’s dream it is to do away with Russia. And as we see from what’s going on in Ukraine, they are acting on it. We live in the information matrix, where those who control the info-stream control the world. The image of Russia as an enemy was created in the past 23 years of ‘independence’ in many of the post-Soviet countries. Of course, in each case they had to draw on legitimate, or in most cases imaginary, historic reasons. Sometimes history was falsified, and sometimes it was turned upside down. The absolutely impossible to believe change that happened to Ukraine in the short 20 years is one of the best illustrations of how history is re-written and falsified just as soon as it happens. However, the roots of Russophobia, going hand in hand with a profoundly close connection of Russia and Ukraine, go much deeper in history.
What are the Roots of the Radical Russophobia in Ukraine?
“You said that Russians didn’t suppress the minorities, and that it was more the other way around. That seems logical, but it also raises the issue with the Ukraine today. Many say the radical Ukrainian sentiment was basically started in the USSR. Much milder than today, of course, but strong enough that it went wild once independence occurred. You might want to go over that in a post at some point. If you keep telling people that Russians are bad, including people in the historically Russian areas of the Ukraine, they will eventually agree.”
This is an excellent question raised by Paul Plane of the Plane Truth show in the comment to my post: Raising Chi Against Hatred: The Suppressed Story of Russian Songs that Unite World Cultures. The Plane Truth/Time Monk Radio are friends of the FuturisTrendcast (see Lada Ray interviews with the Plane Truth here). I addressed parts of this issue in various articles and interviews, but I do realize how difficult it is for those who grew up in the West to reconcile this with all the lies they had been fed since childhood. In this article I have put together a comprehensive analysis of this important issue. Note, I am just scratching the surface; there are deeper and very fascinating reasons, which concern everyone alive on the planet. I will eventually touch upon those in my future Earth Shift Reports and LadaRayLive shows.
First, let’s start with a few psychological premises and historic truths that may open your eyes
1. In any culture at all times there will be a certain amount of dissent against central power or against majority – sometimes justified, sometimes based on personal likes, dislikes, disappointments and power-mongering aspirations, whether justified or not. How far this dissent will go depends on factors such as: the strength of central power; support of the population; is there an economic crisis/collapse; and very importantly, are any foreign powers feeding said dissent with money, weapons and subversive propaganda. When above conditions don’t apply, the dissent is negligible or dormant.
2. Humans at large are prone to jealousy for someone more successful than they are. This usually comes from the personal sense of powerlessness, when people feel they aren’t in control of their own life. This applies to both individuals and countries.
3. Humans at large are prone to fear and panic, as well as hatred, born from fear and the above sense of powerlessness.
4. Ukraine had been subjected over the years to all of the above. Ukrainian dissent was dormant during the Soviet years, when Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was considered second most economically developed republic of the Union, after Russian Federation. This happened because Russia/USSR flooded Ukraine with technology, advanced specialists, industrialization, and simply with money.
5. Apart from the above, Ukrainians do have this interesting quality, particular to them. I did write about that in one of my past articles, where I pointed out the very well-known Ukrainian saying: “If I can’t eat them all, I’ll bite into each” (sounds like a vampire). In Ukrainian: “Yaksho ne z’im to ponadkusuyu,” meaning, if I can’t have something, no one else will.
See, Russians never had any such saying; quite the opposite – Russians are very generous, oftentimes to a fault. As we know, national sayings aren’t born by accident – they appear and take root based on the long-term observation of the manifest human nature. It seems, Ukrainians had the opportunity to observe the ‘if I can’t have it, no one will’ type of behavior among their brethren quite a bit.
The USSR collapse aftermath
In 1991, Soviet Union fell apart peacefully and quietly, practically on a handshake. Following that, Russians withdrew from everywhere on post-Soviet space to deal with their own collapse and internal problems, leaving at the mercy of the nationalistic, mega-corrupt, and oftentimes openly fascist governments over 25 million ethnic Russians who lived in various post-Soviet republics. In addition to that, another 100+ million people of various ethnic origins, who considered themselves belonging to the Greater Russian culture, were stranded in different corners of the post-Soviet space, now foreigners and illegals in Russia proper, which they considered their greater mother culture. Add to that another few hundred million Russians and pro-Russian all over the world suffering from a massive confusion and withdrawal. This, as Vladimir Putin once said (and I concur), is the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times. The Russian people now constitute the largest EVER divided ethnicity on planet Earth.
The turmoil and confusion in people’s heads was tremendous, and this included not only ethnic Russians – as I said, it also included about 100 million of others on post-Soviet space who, being Ukrainians, Belarus, Georgians, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Armenians, Abkhazians, Moldavians, Kyrgyzs, Gagauzs, Latvians, Poles, Bulgarians, Jews, also considered themselves Russian. Some people had to go through a lot of hardship, and some developed resentment, feeling they were left in the cold by the country they considered their mother culture. Some moved to Russia as guest workers with very little rights (but making a lot more money than in their native parts), and some chose to emigrate abroad, where salaries were much higher, but life much more boring and alien to them.
However, as Russia started recovering, and the West’s economic conditions began worsening, the cultural re-integration of the Greater Russian culture slowly but surely gained speed. It has been going on for years – through movies, songs, books and art competitions (as depicted in my above-mentioned article) as well as through humor of the traditional game show called KVN. KVN is older than I am; its fans are many and it manages to unite people not only from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the Baltics, but also from Georgia (just recently a sworn enemy of Russia), UK, Germany and Israel. There are now Africans, Chinese and Koreans playing KVN. I write about some of the above issues in Why US/EU/NWO Can Never Defeat Russia. Also watch: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU and read Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union”.
Russia started recovering from the 1990s knockout AFTER Putin came to power. When Putin first appeared on stage in 1999, he wasn’t taken seriously; in fact, he received threats and pretty humiliating remarks from other political forces. It was at the time when he was looking for support for the upcoming 2000 elections. To clear the way for Putin, Yeltsin stepped down ahead of time, and I recall that moment very clearly. Although I resided in the US, I listened to the nationally televised address by Yeltsin from the Kremlin on December 31, 1999. After traditionally congratulating everyone with the New Year 2000 and with the beginning of the new millennium, Yeltsin publicly apologized for all he had done wrong and asked for the Russian people’s forgiveness. Then he announced he was stepping down.
I wasn’t concerned with geopolitics back than; nor did I care about Yeltsin. But I did care about Russia and her people. I felt immediately that something very important was about to happen. Time has proven that my feeling was correct. The story of who and what was behind Yeltsin stepping down and Putin coming to power is extremely interesting in its own right. I will discuss that in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: The Putin Enigma.
When Ukraine became “independent” in 1991, everyone in the West, as well as many inside Ukraine itself, predicted that it would become the beacon of how the newly FREE countries liberated from the Soviet ‘occupation,’ should develop and grow. It was said that Ukraine would be the beacon of democracy and a stellar performer. It was a general Western and Ukrainian consensus that Ukraine would develop and grow much better than Russia. The demise and a full disintegration of Russia was also predicted in the West, and among those Russians who considered themselves smart, Western-oriented intellectuals. I believe some of those who predicted all this were Kissinger, Brzezinski and Albright. From that I make the inevitable conclusion: IT IS BECAUSE USA LISTENS TO ‘ANALYSTS’ LIKE THESE, US POLICIES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE A COMPLETE FAILURE AND DISASTER. I suggest everyone start listening to the predictions of those who know what they are talking about. Yours truly is a good start. 😉 My predictions can be found here.
Ukraine was juxtaposed to Russia as a great democratic success. Same was said in the 1990/2000s about Georgia, Latvia, Estonia – and look what is happening in these countries now: empty coffers, skyrocketing debt, 1/4-1/2 (and more) of the population are migrant workers in Russia or West as Soviet-built economy has been destroyed. Meanwhile, Russia turned around and continued adjusting, growing and developing.
Ukraine experimented with being “independent” for 23 years. The result is the severely damaged economy, hyper-inflation, currency collapse, civil war, oligarch takeover and takeover by foreign powers. If Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic’s GDP ranked #10 in the world in 1990, independent Ukraine’s GDP ranks #63 in the world as of 2013 (data by Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, former Rada deputy, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine). Note, this GDP was calculated in 2013, before the maidan and Kiev junta managed to destroy the rest of Ukraine’s economy.
If they truly cared for their country instead of their oversized egos and fat offshore bank accounts in payment for their services to NWO elites, they would have taken a good look at what THEY did wrong that caused this disaster. But of course it’s just so much easier to blame Russia.
In the past 23 years the MSM, politics and education were gradually taken over by the West together with the Ukrainian oligarchs with Swiss villas and wealth stored in Western offshores, whose interests coincided with the interests of the West.
Soros-funded history books have been fed to school children. According to this fiction Ukrainians descended from the unknown tribe of the ancient Ukrs – absolutely separate from Russians, and not from the Kievan and Galitskaya Rus. Russia in these books is portrayed as aggressor. In reality Russia saved Ukraine from the invasion and annihilation by Poles and Turks 360 years ago by accepting Ukraine’s plea to admit it into Russia. Ukraine history books portrayed Crimea and Novorossia as part of its territory, completely disregarding the truth – more about that later. In the Ukr history books Jesus Christ, Julius Caesar, as well as Adam and Eve, were all… genuine Ukrainians. It would be funny if it wasn’t that sad.
During the prosperous Soviet days the Ukrainian nationalism and envy were dormant. They woke up and proliferated with a vengeance when the economic collapse hit the country, therefore proving the old American adage that invariably ‘it’s the economy, stupid.’ It is interesting that Ukraine’s ruling class and the majority of the population, especially those nationalist or fascist-inclined, are in a complete and total denial as to what is happening in their country. Again – it’s so much more convenient to blame Russia!
The economy destruction gave birth to political unrest and the super-corrupt and sold-out elites. Such juicy pre-requisites coupled with pretty ignorant and savage population are a boon for the West in order to weaken Russia further. There is no question that Russians were asleep at the wheel geopolitically since 1985, when Gorbachev came to power. Later, Russia had to deal with her own demons… and own super-corrupt politicians and oligarchs. When Russians pretty much pulled out of Ukraine on all levels (this applies to the entire post-Soviet space), US/EU/NWO rolled in right away. And presto! This volatile confluence of events and conditions created the gross imbalance we are observing today.
It may seem from all I have said that Ukraine has never been a conscious ‘geopolitical subject,’ but rather an ‘object of geopolitics.’ It is actually true. Ukraine never had a successful run as an independent country.
Moreover, Ukraine was only successful when it was a part of Russia. This statement can be verified year after year with clear historic facts. Ukraine reached its pinnacle as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic during Soviet times. From a small, agricultural and poor area around Kiev and what is now central Ukraine, it grew into a huge territory, courtesy of various Soviet leaders, at the expense of others. Ukraine’s economy, if taken separately from the USSR totals, was ranked No. 10 in the world; and Russians even made sure Ukraine had its own representation in the UN and other international bodies. Of course, all this was promptly forgotten by the nezalezhna – once Ukraine turned independent.
It wasn’t my plan to bring up the issue of karma in this article, but how can I resist when it’s staring me in the eye: where you are going, there you are! In the words of my novelette, CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians), “Karma can be a beautiful maiden… or a bitch.”
THE REAL HISTORY OF UKRAINE
No, the anti-Russian sentiment wasn’t born during Soviet times. If anything, any real Ukrainian should be grateful to the Soviets. After all, it was Lenin in 1918-1922, who ‘gave’ all of east and south, including Donbass (Lugansk and Donetsk), Zaporozhie, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Odessa, Kherson and Nikolaev to Ukraine. This was done to appease the existing ultra-nationalist sentiment there, plus to give the poor, agricultural Ukraine (What I call ‘Ukraine proper’ – the areas concentrated around Kiev, central and northern Ukraine) an industrial base and educated work force, which could bring them sustainable revenue. The goal was to significantly pull up their standard of living. Under Stalin, this idea was expanded as Russians built an extremely strong industrial base in Ukraine, off which Ukraine has been living till today. The fact that they, and their oligarchs, never modernized or added to that base, but like a bad drunk preferred to squander their rich Soviet inheritance, speaks volumes of their ability to self-govern. That notwithstanding, they blame Russia.
As many of my readers know, I grew up in Odessa, a beautiful and wealthy Black Sea port and resort, built by the Russians in 1793. Just like Crimea and other productive and wealthy areas of the South and East, Odessa became a part of Ukraine due to the short-sighted actions of the Soviet leaders; in this case, Lenin.
This is the historic truth. However, the ignorant and sold-out media, politicians and writers in the West and Ukraine will routinely lie and blame Russia for “invading Odessa.” The truth is, Odessa always was and always will be a Russian city.
I once came across an American/Israeli novelist Daniel Silva who is routinely producing bestseller spy thrillers based, unfortunately, on outright lies. I once picked up a book written by this ‘novelist’ in which action took place in Russia, Crimea and Odessa. The descriptions were so bad and so far from the truth that it was clear the man had no idea whatsoever how either Odessa or Crimea should look, the names were absolutely wrong, and of course – both Crimea and Odessa were occupied by the bad Russians, until in 1991 the poor Ukrainians (with completely idiotically sounding non-Ukrainian names) reclaimed their CORE (??) territories of Crimea and Odessa. I haven’t seen a bigger BS in my life.
This is how Western propaganda works – it’s not just MSM or politicians. They pay big bucks to sold-out puppets like the above-mentioned novelist Silva to produce a lie in a pretty wrapper. This alone gives us a good idea how one’s book becomes a bestseller in the US – write a lie big enough, preferably about Russia, China or the Middle East, and you are guaranteed a best-seller status. Needless to say, I dropped that book like a hot potato. Guess what, I see Daniel Silva books all the time on bestseller lists. Looks like their propaganda keeps working.
Every library and store would carry shelves upon shelves of lies written by professional crooks. So many will read them and think this is the truth. In the information vacuum what choice do they have? And that’s how you create zombified, manipulated, brainwashed populace that you twist into a pretzel on moment’s notice.

Just like in Crimea, 100% of Odessans always spoke Russian and/or a special Odessan mixed language. Recently, I was watching clips with pro-Ukrainian, pro-ukronazi demonstration in Odessa; they showed young people and families with children who spoke and carried slogans in Ukrainian. I can assure you, no real Odessan in his/her right mind ever speaks Ukrainian – these were the Kiev junta plants. To me, this little clip proved the level of lies, and the crude, unprofessional deception of the Kiev junta. They couldn’t get the real citizens for this protest, so they brought in the traveling circus, and with children – a nice touch!

It was also Stalin who ‘added’ to Ukraine – note, to Ukraine, NOT Russia! – some regions of Western Ukraine that belonged previously to Romania, Hungary and Poland. Russia did have a strong historic claim on these areas (in medieval times this area was called Galitskaya Rus and the population was ethnically Russian, Russin or Malorussian), but they were taken over or annexed by other countries in the last few centuries, until Stalin annexed them in 1940 to extend the USSR border, thus creating a buffer zone in case of Hitler’s attack. Presently, these are territories that may be disputed by the above-mentioned countries.
And of course, Ukrainians should have been grateful to Russians forever due to Khrushchev giving them Crimea in 1954. Instead, they treated the Crimea and its people like…. I will omit the word that comes to mind. Together with all other undeserved Soviet inheritance, they squandered the prized possession such as Crimea. Incidentally, you can listen to the Lada Ray Live show on YouTube for more on Crimea and the theft of the Crimean Scythian gold. Listen to this episode.
Earlier history of Ukraine
16-19th century. When large parts of what was called at different times the Kievan (Kievskaya) Rus, Galitskaya Rus, Malorossia, and subsequently, Ukraine, were taken over at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, some of the local population was gradually re-molded into the Western-centric mentality and brainwashed.
In the 19th century Austria-Hungary built concentration camps for some of western Ukrainians, who always called themselves Russins and who – oh, surprise – considered themselves Russians. These camps were built for those who didn’t submit to the ‘we are separate from Russia’ ideology. There was a well covered-up genocide of the Russins in western Ukraine when the whole villages were either burned down or forcibly converted into Catholicism.
Divide and conquer: It is generally understood by researchers that project ‘Ukraine is a separate nation’ was born in Austria-Hungary in the 18th century. Later, it was adopted and expanded by Poland. The goal was to tear Ukrainians away from Russia. From the standpoint of an occupier it’s not good when a part of your country (parts of Ukraine, in fact parts of Russian historic and cultural territory, were occupied by Poland and Austria-Hungary, and before that, by Lithuania) considers you an illegal occupier and keeps looking at Russia as their motherland. Look at the striking parallels with today’s Donbass! They don’t consider Ukraine their motherland; instead they keep raising Russian flags, declaring allegiance to Russia.
Project Ukraine: 360 years ago cossack Bogdan Khmelnitsky and his people voted to re-unite with Russia. Other choices that didn’t get much popular support were joining the Osmanic Turkey or Poland. Russia accepted the territory with the capital in Kiev, which at that point was called Malorossia. Novorossia (currently the East and South of Ukraine) was NOT a part of Malorossia.
In medieval times, the neighboring Poland and Lithuania had big emperial designs. There were times when both Poland and Lithuania grew through conquest of neighboring Slavic lands. The back and forth struggles between states continued for centuries, until during the Time of Troubles Poland, which by then absorbed Lithuania, tried to conquer Russia, installing a Polish king on the Russian throne. As my readers may know from reading my Predictions and articles, any attempt to conquer Russia always ends very badly for the conqueror wannabe.
The popular uprising of the Russian people against occupiers produced true heroes and leaders. One of the heroes was local peasant Ivan Susanin, who volunteered to show the Polish army a secret path into Moscow to ensure their surprise attack, but instead led them into swamps, where he sacrified his life dying together with the Poles, thus saving Moscow from imminent invasion. The leaders of the 1612 uprising were citizen-commoner Kuzma Minin and Prince (Knyaz’) Pozharsky, who organized a grass-roots army financed by rich merchants and simple citizens alike. It was a truly popular movement when people donated their last money and when everyone rose regardless of their age and status in society.
The defeat of the occupiers was only the beginning. The result of every aggression against Russia is always the same. The result of this aggression was that eventually both Lithuania and Poland became parts of the Russian Empire. As I said, it’s never a good idea to attack Russia.

From this it is clear that some in Poland, and Lithuania too, had kept a certain amount of resentment due to their historic defeat. Interestingly enough, while Ukraine was now a part of Russia, Polish lords (pani) still were the largest land owners and serf-owners in Ukraine. Russians didn’t expropriate their private property. Serfs were Ukrainian peasants, sort of half-slaves who were owned and could be sold or bought by their lords. The Polish pani were very vicious and cruel as documented in many Ukrainian works of literature. The greatest Ukrainian poet, Taras Shevchenko (see more about him below) dedicated his whole life to exposing and telling the truth about the exploitation of Ukrainians by the Polish pani. There were lots of peasant uprisings with manors and palaces being burned.
In fact, Ukraine was so named in Poland, not in Russia. In Russia the territory around Lvov, Kiev and Poltava was called Malorossia (or Russia Minor). ‘Ukraina’ ‘vkraina’ or ‘okraina’ means the outskirts in many Slavic languages. To Poles Ukraine was the outskirts of their once bigger empire. The name was used parallel with the official name of Malorossia in everyday language for quite some time, but it gained popularity since mid-19th century thanks to the Polish intellectuals from Lvov.
The name of the man who was the driving force behind ‘Ukraine is separate from Russia’ project was Kalinka. He was a Polish ksendz (Catholic priest). In 1864 he created a plan to separate Ukraine from Russia following a historic event in 1861 when Russian Emperor Alexander freed serfs. The now free farmers were granted some of the lands that Polish pani-shliakhta considered their own. There was a rather significant Polish shliakhta insurrection in 1963. However, that insurrection was quelled not by the Russian army or police, but by the self-armed army consisting of former serfs themselves who were promised lands of those Polish lords who participated in the insurrection. Clearly, the Polish shliakhta never forgot their humiliation and defeat. The idea was if they can’t have Ukraine, then it won’t belong to Russia either.
Incidentally, current Ukrainian anthem adopted in the 1990s was also written in the beginning of the 20th century as a semi-joke by several Polish intellectuals from Lvov, plotting their revenge on Russia. The anthem is infamous for its depressive and incongruent lyrics, such as, “So far Ukraine is alive…” Meaning, they are expecting it to die soon? Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy… The verses that became the present day Ukraine anthem were copied quite talentlessly, but with a purpose – to diminish and destroy – from the Polish anthem. In the Polish anthem there are words, “Poland is still alive (but unlike in the Ukraine anthem, the next line clarifies), while we are…” The clarifying line gives the whole thing an entirely different meaning.
Considering that Polish pani owned Ukraine lands and people, this is the first time in history the occupied are proudly singing the anthem written by their occupiers.
Opening the Pandora’s Box: since Ukraine wants to join the EU, Poles are preparing historic claims on Ukrainian lands they used to own. 70,000 such claims exist in Poland alone. There are also several thousand in Romania, Hungary and Israel. Ownership claims from the descendants of the dreaded Polish pani include agricultural lands, manors, villages, buildings, whole cities and factories.
A Note from Lada:
I will leave outside the scope of this article the discussion as to how close Ukrainians are to Russians, or how close Poles and Lithuanians are to Russians for that matter. Very close, I can assure you. However, here we are not talking of ancestral closeness, but of ideology. In medieval times this ideology was based on difference in religion, with Vatican/Catholicism being the aggressor. Later, in the 18th/19th century, it was based on ethnicity, falsification of historical roots and allegiance to the crown. In the 20th century, it became the communism vs. capitalism fight. And in the 21st century, they again dragged out the moth-eaten 18th-19th century’s falsified history and allegiance.
But wait! do you notice THE COMMON DENOMINATOR in all these cases? The ENEMY NUMBER 1 is ALWAYS RUSSIA! It doesn’t matter what ideology they peruse. What matters is how easy it is to brainwash and zombify humans.
As a comparative linguist and mystical futurist (see my articles about the Mysteries of Linguistics), I can tell you that the peoples of Europe, and by extension, of Eurasia, ARE the same people, or at least, very close relatives with the same roots. I can also tell you that in a cosmic sense, we are all ONE.
It is a shame that people who are so close can’t live in peace!
I’ll also add the following: it is clear to me that most of the world’s population does want to live in peace and cooperation, which includes the majority in the countries/continents I sometimes criticize, such as Ukraine, Poland, US, UK, and Europe. However, certain forces on our planet are after unlimited power at the expense of others. This ruthless drive for power and money is what creates wars and instability. These forces change their shape and flags in time and space, but their essence always remains the same. As long as people allow themselves to be led by their lowly emotions, such as fear, greed and anger, they will always be a willing cannon fodder and useful fools in the hands of these master manipulators.

Other examples: The same situation occurred in 2008 in South Ossetia/Abkhazia – Georgia war. Serbians will never forget how the former Yugoslavia was broken up and how Serbia was bombed in the 1990s. Today, the Crimea and Donbass-like scenario is taking place in parts of Moldova, specifically, Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia – both had referendums in which about 97% of citizens voted for re-uniting with Russia. I am following the Moldova/Pridnestrovie/Gagauzia story very closely, as it may explode any moment. See my article Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union” and special video report: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
Back to Ukraine. Of course we shouldn’t forget about the forced religious conversion of Ukrainians from Orthodoxy into Catholicism, which started around 17-18th century and continues till today. In those days religious conversion was the best way to divide cultures. Same happened in Serbia/Yugoslavia, where Muslim and Catholic religions were used to divide and pit against each the traditionally Orthodox Christian Southern Slavs.
The story of Ukrainian pro- and anti-Russian mentality is very well depicted in the famous historic story by Nikolay Gogol, Taras Bulba. It is the story of a Cossack and his two sons. The world-famous Russian author Nikolay Gogol was from Ukraine, and to him it would have never occurred to say that he wasn’t Russian. Same goes for the celebrated 19th century Ukrainian poet and thinker, Taras Shevchenko, whose whole life was spent in a fight against the Polish shliakhta, or Polish pani – rich Polish landowners who owned a lot of Ukraine’s lands. Shevchenko spoke up in protection of the simple Ukrainians who were exploited by the Polish shliakhta. Taras Shevchenko is called the ‘Great Kobzar’ in Ukraine and is celebrated as the biggest Ukrainian poet. Meanwhile, most of Shevchenko’s works are written in Russian, and only a small portion – in Ukrainian. Gogol wrote almost exclusively in Russian.
Taras Shevchenko saw the best and only protection for Ukraine in being a part of Russia, the same way as the leader of Ukraine Bogdan Khmelnitsky 360 years ago saw Ukraine’s future as one with Russia. Bogdan Khmelnitsky asked Russia to accept Ukraine as part of its territory and Russia said ‘yes,’ thus protecting Ukraine from a hostile takeover. By the way, 360 years ago, a truly democratic referendum was conducted in cities and villages to decide whether Ukraine should in fact join Russia. Khmelnitsky’s cossacks went from town to town and asked whether citizens wanted to be under Russia, Poland or Osmanic Empire. And everywhere citizens unanimously responded, “with Russia” (source: Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, leader of the progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine: Link). Since then, Ukraine has devolved substantially in terms of democracy.
The 18th century Ukrainian poet/philosopher Skovoroda wrote in his bio: “Russian philosopher.” Same goes for the 19th century Ukrainian poetess, Lesia Ukrainka (Lesia the Ukrainian). These people are not just anyone – their portraits are on the contemporary Ukraine currency.

Notice that they celebrated their heritage, just like a resident of Moscow, Rostov, Ryazan, or the Urals, would celebrate their own local heritage, but at the same time, they felt a part of the Greater Russian culture. Today’s Ukrainians have become masters at denying the obvious.
When I grew up in Odessa, our biggest park was, still is, called the Shevchenko Park. In school, we all learned the poetry of Taras Shevchenko in Ukrainian, although 100% of the multi-national population of Odessa ALWAYS spoke Russian (the language today’s Ukraine has tried to officially ban) and Odessa wasn’t even supposed to be a part of Ukraine. Just a reminder of how all-inclusive the Russian culture was and is, and how today’s Ukro-fascism is the complete opposite of that.
See my popular articles about Odessa with great images:
Interesting example: After WWII, Germany was divided into two countries. East Germany is mostly Prussia, another part of Germany is called Saxonia, yet another Bavaria. All these areas historically have their own dialects. There are about 50,000 Serbs in Germany that have lived there for millenia, except in today’s Germany they are called ‘Sorbs.’ Does it occur to anyone to say one part is German and another isn’t? Did it ever occur to anyone to deny east and west of Germany didn’t deserve to be together? No – they reunited as one nation. In parts of Germany they speak language the other parts have trouble understanding; yet, they all consider themselves German despite big differences in psychology and language.
Historic truth: From the above, we can already see that in 19th century and prior, those who are called today Ukrainians thought of themselves as Russian. Ukraine had a distinct, and very lovely dialect. Ukrainian was a dialect, along with Belorussian, until Lenin and the Bolsheviks decided to upgrade it to a language. Bolsheviks have done this to many other dialects on the Soviet space as well. Russian linguists oftentimes worked overtime to create alphabets for those small dialects that had no written language, thus upgrading them and giving them second life. This was the way Bolsheviks wanted to celebrate the diversity of Russia, elevating the dignity of small cultures. As a linguist I know a thing or two about that.
But the story goes deeper. During Peter the Great there was a war with Sweden. Appointed by Peter Ukraine’s governor (it was the Ukraine that didn’t include today’s East, South, West and Crimea), Ukrainian Cossack Getman Mazepa, betrayed Russia and sided with Sweden. Let’s also remember that Ukraine was still called Malorossia in those days. Here is a vivid illustration of how far today’s official Ukraine has gone: Ukrainian school history books describe Getman Mazepa as a hero. They also portray as a hero Stepan Bandera, Shukhevich and other ukro-nazis who headed SS Division Galichina and similar outfits during WWII, and who were responsible for massacring hundreds of thousands of Russians, Jews, Ukrainians and Poles.
The attempted Swedish invasion of Russia failed. Swedish king Karl lost to Peter in the Battle of Poltava. Poltava is a city located in today’s central Ukraine. It has to be noted that attempts to invade and conquer Russia by the West are as old as the world itself. I explained the West’s maniacal desire to conquer Russia in PREDICTONS and in Predictions: The Real Reasons for West’s Anti-Russian Sanctions. I will be expanding on my predictions eventually, so stay tuned.
Russians are well-aware of all these historic episodes, but they have been customarily closing their eyes to the facts, pretending it never happened in order to keep the “bad peace in the family,” following the Russian principle that ‘bad peace is better than a good war.’ They would usually do so until it were impossible to keep such peace and the rosy glasses that went with it.
Is Kiev really the Mother of all Russian Cities?
We have to dig even deeper from here. There is a vernacular floating around that ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities.’ This phrase was born of Lenin’s/Bolsheviks’ desire to appease Ukraine ultra-nationalists circa 1918-20 and to create the ‘brotherhood of nations.’ Admirable, but incredibly misguided. Russians customarily repeat this phrase, without thinking what it means.
In reality, during the medieval times Kiev was a large, important and rich city, but hardly the ‘mother of all Russian cities.’ The history of the Russian civilization was deliberately re-written and shortened to make it seem as if Russia was only a 1000 years old. The ancient Rus (Slavic) chronicles were burned and any evidence of the many, many millenia of the Rus (alternatively called Slavyano-Arian) culture all over the world, including in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the British Isles, Mediterranean, the Urals, Siberia, beyond the Arctic Circle, Egypt, and on North American continent, erased. However, all this information is now coming out as the new advanced scientific methods allow to read things that were unreadable before, and calculate mathematically past events that were falsified. The falsifications were so widespread that literally we can all throw out the entire history we ever studied, and learn it from scratch. This concerns Russia, Eurasia, Asia, Europe, America and the Middle East.
Extremely advanced Rus cities existed well before Kiev everywhere, including those places considered today too cold for human habitation, such as the Kolsky peninsula in the White Sea beyond the Arctic Circle, the northern Ural Mountains, Arctic Siberia near the North Pole, to name a few. It is proven that advanced civilizations existed as far as 40 thousand years ago, and it is believed that they also thrived much, much longer prior. On the other hand, very important Rus/Slavic cities also existed in Western Europe, including in what is today Mediterranean, Italy and Germany. This includes the famous historic cities, such as Venice, Verona, Vienna, Rome, Troy, Berlin, Bern, Pompei, to name just a few. Venice was built by ancient Slavs called Veneds, and so was Vienna. The close relatives of Veneds, Et-ruskans (in Russian: Et-russki) had built Rome. Look at the word “Ro-me.” Now look at the word “Rossiya.” You can say “Rus” and you can say “Ro-ssiya. “Ro-me” — “Ro-ssiya.”
The brainwashing was so great that even the majority of Russians, including most Russian scientists, Lenin and the Bolsheviks, went along with the “Rus is 1000 years of age” theory. That’s why they promoted Kiev as the most important, title city of the medieval Rus, from which the entire history of Russia supposedly began. (I write about some of this in the Forbidden Linguistics. Linguistics can help us uncover the hidden mysteries and clarify historic distortions.)
If we take the medieval era alone, and only within the contemporary Russian territory, in 5-10th centuries (and well before that) there were cities of the Golden Ring (Suzdal, Vladimir, etc.) located around Moscow, as well as Veliky Novgorod (Great Novgorod), that were at least just as important as Kiev – possibly more. The age of Moscow is likely at least several thousand years, not 900 years, as the mainstream history will have you believe.
The actual name of Moscow is Moskva in Russian. The name was distorted, perhaps accidentally. It was called Maskova well before the year 1147, which is erroneously considered the first mention of Moscow in chronicles, and therefore its birthday. Of course it is the first mention since all earlier mentions were destroyed! So, the name Maskova (source: Russian linguist, Prof. Valery Chudinov, Russian Academy of Sciences Member) comes from ‘maska.’ Maska is the Russian word, from which the Western word mask had originated.
The word masquerade comes from Russian maskarad: maska + rad. Rad = ‘rad-ovatsia’ – to experience joy, to have fun, as well as to commune/talk with others. Incidentally, the Ukraine parliament is called ‘Rada,’ or a place where people are supposed to commune and discuss things, preferably with joy ;). Instead they often have fist fights there, completely negating the true meaning of this ancient word. The word ‘rad’ is very, very ancient and it has a very profound meaning. I will talk more about it in a future report related to the discoveries of the Russian scientists.
In the ancient days, maska had a broader meaning and symbolized anything artistically painted. Before that, it symbolized Vedic (ancient Rus pagan) religious paintings. When Russia adopted Orthodox Christianity, it became the first name for icons. However, the word undoubtedly has pre-Christian meaning and very ancient origin.
Incidentally, the word ikona, ‘icon’ in English, is also a very ancient Russian word. What we know as a Russian icon today was called “maska” in those ancient days, and Maskova (Moskva) was the place where these icons were painted. The real age, origins the true global importance of the Rus language and culture (also referred to as Slavic), would be a separate topic. The words such as “ikona,” “Rus” or “Ros,” and “Slav” are hugely important for all of us.
I’ll give you a hint: it is precisely because the earthly importance and global weight of the Rus culture and language is much greater than customarily portrayed, there had always been forces bent on diminishing and maligning Russia and Russian culture. There is so much more to say on the subject, and I promise we’ll talk about it in my future reports.
Holy Trinity, the most famous surviving medieval Russian ikona (maska), by Andrei Rublev
The reason I talk so much about the “Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities” myth is because it is very important to understand the essence of today’s hatred of certain members of the Ukrainian society towards everything Russian. It is this false idea that is at the core of their staunch belief that Russians are inferior, therefore, they – the real heirs of the ancient Kievan Rus, the real ‘Title Slavic culture’ – should be the richest, most prosperous and get all the influence and credit in world affairs. This kind of sick mentality can also be easily recognized from the hysterical speeches by Hitler and Goebbels; it is born of a severe inferiority complex. This kind of horribly low vibration is what those forces who want to control and destroy Ukraine, and then through Ukraine get to Russia, gladly latch on to.
But this myth would have never endured if Russians themselves didn’t parrot it, partly because of own ignorance and partly because of the Russian psyche’s unique quality of generosity – why not spread the wealth and make Ukrainians feel better about themselves. As we see, best intentions do lead to hell.
So why did the myth that Kiev is ‘the Mother of all Russian cities’ appear, and how did it gain traction? My theory is that the Russian Orthodox church played a role here, as Kiev is the seat of the very important orthodox Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra monastery built about 700-800 years ago. Perhaps the myth of the Kiev as the mother of all Russian cities was necessary to raise the importance of the church. It’s interesting to note that in later years Moscow was referred to as the ‘Mother City,’ in my opinion because this is where the Orthodox headquarters moved around 14-15th century. So, it’s very possible that the title of the ‘Mother City’ was simply given to any city that played a role of the Orthodox Christianity’s headquarters of the Russian realm at any given moment, but later the real meaning was forgotten or deliberately distorted. This is the most logical explanation, however, sadly humans tend to lose the historic chain of events and reasoning. Of course, a large role here played the fact that so many Russian chronicles that could have confirmed this, were destroyed.
The ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russia’ theory doesn’t hold water however you look at it, and it is obviously politically motivated.
Either way, this is a myth that unfortunately became so pervasive that it infected the psyche of Ukrainians with jealousy and resentment towards Moscow and Russia. How come, say Ukrainians, WE are the most important, WE were the true beginning of the Russian civilization, and meanwhile Moscow gets credit for everything? OUR Ukrainian language was the mother tongue (not true), while Russian had been the derivative; so how dare Russian claims the status of one of the great languages, and Ukrainian doesn’t!
In reality, the modern Ukrainian language is in large part an artificially created language with the kind help of the above-mentioned Polish intellectuals. It is also a mixed language, with lots of words borrowed from Polish, Hungarian, Latin, and other languages, after years as part of different countries and as a deliberate attempt to distance Ukrainian from Russian.
Related complaint from Ukraine: how come Moscow/Russia are doing so well, and we are not?
Add to that twisted historic resentment this, more recent envy: how come Russia has all the resources, such as oil, gas and huge territory, and we only have coal? The fact that Russia always shared all her resources more than generously, the fact that Ukraine always paid a highly discounted price for gas and oil, that Russia subsidised and supported Ukrainian economy… matters not.
This, in short, is the sad story of the anti-Russian hatred in Ukraine and its falsified history.
Of course, there are normal people in Ukraine as well, but they are being intimidated, suppressed and silenced. For example, Ukraine has just had the premature elections into Rada. Due to intimidation, threats and open persecution by the government and ukro-fascist mobs, the only candidates able to run are all shades of fascists and the ultra-right. The centrist Party of the Regions candidates could only run if they changed colors, and even then, they probably would be thrown out because of the new ‘Lustration law,’ which is somewhere between the McCarthyism/the 1950s US Witch Hunts and Hitler’s Final Solution.
Meanwhile, all left parties have been banished from the Rada. Communist party members were beaten in the Rada and their parliament faction was disbanded for trying to draw attention to the plight of the peaceful population in Donbass. The members of the Communist Rada faction are in hiding because many of their houses were burned down and families physically threatened. The Progressive Socialist Party also is practically in hiding – I mentioned the head of this party, Natalia Vitrenko, above. She says that she has been completely shut off from any media and the only means she has left of delivering her message is YouTube. All this because she tells the truth. Video in which angry mob in Kiev dumps a Rada deputy in a dumpster and threatens to set him on fire. Another video in which angry ukro-nazis are demolishing a monument to Lenin, whom they should in fact admire as the Father of their nation (this video is by a German citizen who speaks Russian).
However, what is happening in Ukraine today, just like any violent aggression and suppression, can’t last forever. We are living through a revolutionary period when truth is bound to come out everywhere. Every suppressed truth will be breaking through the layers of lies and illusion throughout this decade. Truth will be blooming and illuminating the world with a vengeance after the many years of obscurity. Don’t be afraid of this light – embrace it!

I have received a number of questions from frustrated readers regarding what some think is a weak response to the accusations that Russia is responsible for downing the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine. We all know that, as Goebbels said (or was it Machiavelli? Not much difference really), so the lie would be believed, it has to be monstrous. Ukraine and US are the faithful students of Hitler, Goebbels and other fascists. They live by it.
Here is what one reader says: “It looks like Russia is losing the info war over the Malaysian plane, perhaps badly. Has Putin given any speeches about it? He could have said “The US pulled off a putsch, installed a government full of radicals who idolize the Nazis, and want Russian speakers expelled or treated like dirt. All as a means to harm Russia. Then they regularly flew fighter jets next to commercial planes on their bombing runs. So, even if the Nazi resistance army shot this plane, which is doubtful, the responsibility lies with those who control Kiev.” Not only did Putin need to say this, but the Russian government needed to buy ad space around the world for this. In Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Amsterdam, and Berlin. You have seen some of the Anglo media; it is talking about a world war. Truth might have defeated the Nazis, but not before tens of millions died. I have read many who say that Russia or the separatist army must be guilty because of their responses.”
The above is a very reasonable and understandable reaction. See full comment by Paul and my complete response in the comment section of Prediction re. Germany Joining China and Russia Alliance, including my explanation that Ukraine is the shadow side of Russia (which is meant in a spiritual sense). Generally, I recommend early readers return later to previous articles, because I oftentimes post additional explanations and discussions in the comment section in response to the interesting reader questions. I may include details or angles that didn’t make it into the main article, which substantially enriches and furthers the understanding.
“The responsibility lies with those who control Kiev.” I can assure you all that Putin has been saying these same words all along; so does the Russian Defence Ministry, which is apparent from videos below. Apparently, no one ever quotes Putin, except RT. Must be because he is so insignificant and unimportant, just like the president of Gana, you know. This is called information vacuum. People like my readers and myself – we don’t go to MSM for news since we know they will present a twisted or deliberately distorted picture of the world. We go where we can find the truth. But the majority listens to CNN and reads the usual. So, their picture is distorted.
Besides, in any commentary, be it on YouTube or newspapers, there are TOO MANY trolls. Many are paid Kiev/US trolls, who may operate from Ukraine, Russia, US or Canada. They have invaded the entire cyberspace. Much of the commentary out there is from trolls, or from those who are pathological haters of Russia. Don’t expect either of these to reform. Problem is – they are infecting a lot of others who sway with the wind as they have no backbone or reason.
This reader’s suggestions about taking out ad space are very reasonable. Perhaps Russian decision-makers will read these articles and comments, and will take that into account. Well, Washington Post apparently reads my articles as they have quoted me… and misspelled my name (separate story, which is also coming up). So, perhaps Russians are also reading this. Let’s hope they heed the above practical advice!
Russia is restrained because they are waiting for the Malaysian crash commission to start working, and to make their own conclusions. Because, if said commission is even remotely unbiased, there can only be one conclusion: Kiev shot down the poor Malaysian airplane.
The last I’ve heard, the Kiev junta is keeping the investigative commission in Kiev, where they have to sit and ‘negotiate’. Negotiate what exactly? One would think that every day is precious in such circumstances. The investigators still have not arrived to the site of the catastrophe. The PM of the Donetsk Republic, Alexander Borodai, announced that they recovered 8 or more of what looks like black boxes and they are being kept safe until the international investigative commission arrives; they will not give them to Kiev for fear Kiev will temper with evidence. Borodai said that they will demand that EU investigators sign for the black boxes and confirm that they were received intact. Video: A. Borodai says: Черные ящики будут переданы только экспертам из ИКАО – Black boxes will only be given to the international expert commission.
He sounded very frustrated that Kiev is practically keeping investigators hostage, essentially preventing them from reaching the site of the crash. Looks like Kiev is trying to sabotage and delay investigation. It is conceivable that Kiev is using the delay, to try to remove any incriminating evidence and erase clues. It appears the Kiev military is also moving the BUK systems away from where they were located so the observers can’t confirm BUKs were actually there during the shooting of the plane. A BUK missile launched from the Ukraine military position near Donetsk is what the Russian Defence Ministry believes brought down the airplane.
I have to say that the appearance here is that the criminals are getting away with murder – mass murder, to be exact. I understand everyone’s frustration. But you know what, I actually believe in the Europeans’ common sense and reason. They are scared of the US, but not fooled. Long term this works against US/Kiev. I also think Putin sees that, too.
Below is Putin’s latest speech, where he again reconfirms Kiev’s responsiblity for the tragedy.
My translation: “In regards to the terrible events that happened in the sky above Donetsk, I want to one more time tell everyone what we in Russia think about it. More than once we called on all sides to immediately stop bloodshed and sit down to negotiate. I can confidently say that if on June 27 the military operation in the east of Ukraine wasn’t renewed (he refers to the fact that president-elect Poroshenko gave order to renew punitive military op against Donbass despite his promise to extend the cease-fire – LR) this tragedy wouldn’t have happened. At the same time, no one has the right to take advantage of this tragedy to further their unsavory political aims. Events such as these should unite people, not further divide them. All who are in charge in Kiev must finally recognize their responsibility towards the people of their own country and towards those countries whose citizens became victims of this catastrophe. Everything must be done to ensure the security of the investigators who will be working at the site. The representatives of Donetsk, Kiev, and experts from Malaysia already work there. But this isn’t enough. The work must be done by the fully formed commission consisting of the international investigators. Everything must be done to ensure they can work without any risk to their lives. Humanitarian corridors must be provided. On our part, Russia will do everything in her power so that the present conflict in Ukraine transitioned from its military phase into a phase of exclusively peaceful negotiations.”

3. Meantime, the war rages – Video: representative of the OSCE commission in Lugansk says: “I have confirmed that Ukraine army bombs exclusively peaceful targets. They bomb homes, schools, hospitals. These people didn’t do anything, they just lived here. And that’s what they get?” Woman speaking in the midst of ruins: “They told us Ukraine army came here to defend us. This is defending?” Watch this self-explanatory video.
4. Latest gruesome footage from the site: Boeing 777 – последняя информация с места катастрофы 21 07 2014. Translation: Bodies loaded into refrigerated train cars to be taken to the town of Forez with further transfer probably to Kharkov. Dutch delegation arrived to the crash site. The entire site is being closely patrolled by the Donetsk Republic’s self-defence units. Their task is to provide safety and to prevent any provocations by the Kiev junta/ Ukraine nazis/ private mercenary army of oligarch Kolomoysky.
5. Russian Defence Ministry’s 10 questions to Kiev re. Malaysian plane catastrophe. This video only lists 4 questions unfortunately, but the entire list was 10.
To me the main question to ask is this: For what purpose did Kiev make the plane deviate from its course into the war zone? This is the key point: only Kiev had authority and opportunity to do that! ONLY KIEV!
Let me remind what I said previously: this is not the first time Ukraine shoots down civilian aircraft. 13 years ago, in 2001, a Ukraine missile shot down a commercial jet from the Russian Sibir airline, en route to Turkey. Over 80 people died. Ukraine denied its responsibility and only admitted it after Russia presented irrefutable evidence of their missile involvement.
But if the 2001 tragedy could have been a sloppy mistake by the poorly trained Ukraine military, the 2014 Malaysia plane downing is a result of a malicious premeditation.
It has become known that several hours before the tragedy, Ukrainian MSM started suddenly reporting that Donetsk self-defence army possessed and operated the BUK systems, something everyone knew was untrue since the BUK is a very sophisticated mobile rocket launch system requiring a well-trained and coordinated crew. Even IF self-defence took any BUK systems as trophies from the Kiev troops, they wouldn’t know how to operate them. However, this disinfo was necessary to prepare the public for what was to happen a few hours later, namely, the downing of a plane with a missile launched from a BUK, to be blamed on Donbass Republic’s self-defence.

Dear readers, because I am going on vacation, I am posting a total of three new pieces today. They are all different and give a voice to my readers. I just love engaging my readers, so please continue leaving good, helpful to the discussion, and responsible comments! The most interesting ones I may turn into an article or a cool debate. Please make sure you read, like and share all three of these new posts that will be appearing throughout the day! Don’t overlook any! I will be back next week.
This is guest post by a friend of FuturisTrendcast and spiritual blogger extraordinaire, Kp at kauilapele.wordpress.com. I am reposting Kp’s open letter to US president Obama with Kp’s kind permission: Original article link.

Letter to Obama by Kauilapele:
Dear Mr. President:
I would like you to view this video.
The Truthseeker: Ukraine Gangster State Calls for ‘Nuclear Strikes’ (E42)
I am absolutely appalled that this U.S. administration is supporting and backing a person such as Poroshenko, as well as his predecessor, a Nazi (Svoboda) sympathizer.
I am absolutely ashamed to have to say that I live in a country whose government is supporting an essentially Nazi-style regime that bombs its own people. You call yourself the President of a so called “of/by/for the People” government? It appears to be nothing of the sort. And certainly the Ukraine government appears to be nothing of the sort.
Everyone is quite aware that the US and NATO are behind the overthrow of the previous Ukrainian President, as well as the current inhumane bombing and shelling of East Ukrainian cities and their people.
You are supporting this???? These are war crimes.
And you are blaming Russia for the shooting and the problems over there? And for the annexation of Crimea, which was nothing of the sort? They voted to return to Russia.
This is not what I signed up for with you, Mr. President, and I offer my strong NO to any continued U.S. involvement in Ukrainian affairs.

A word from Lada:
3 Russian, one Italian and one (I believe) Belorussian journalist have been already killed in Eastern Ukraine by the Western backed Kiev junta, while attempting to perform their duties of filming and telling the truth. At least 5 or 6 Russian journalists had been kidnaped and tortured by the junta and Ukraine nazis. All these returned home with severe injuries. Since only Russian journalists are trying to film the actual events there, if they are intimidated and banned from Ukraine, the world will never know the truth of the Kiev crimes! The European values and Western democracy look like this in Ukraine:
1. Streamer (volunteer cameraman who films footage of real events) Vlad, 16, kidnapped and tortured by Kiev nazis.
Vlad, who is originally from Mariupol, Eastern Ukraine, started filming how Kiev tanks occupied his native city, shooting civilians, running them over, destroying the city. This footage went viral. After that, Vlad was kidnapped and tortured by the ukro-nazis. His family was threatened and he was made to sign a document announcing that everything he filmed was a lie. When Vlad was kidnapped, a global social media storm entitled “Free streamer Vlad” started, as a result of which Vlad was released.
Don’t ever underestimate the grass-roots movement!
Added at 5:33. Unbelievable! I just posted this video from AnnaNews containing the interview with 16year old Streamer Vlad after his release (plus another one below), and it already says that their account has been terminated. I know for a fact they have no copyright infringement as all videos are their own authentic reports. These are bogus copyright claims so their channel is terminated and all the evidence they have collected is wiped out. This is not the first time this has happened. Someone is really bent on destroying the evidence of crimes committed in Ukraine. Sorry, had to delete the video interview with Vlad.
This is the video of the latest killing of a Russian cameraman for Channel 1 Russia, Anatoly Klyan. I found out more about this man from other sources in Russian. He was well over 60 and retired. He spent 40 years behind the camera in the hottest spots on the globe. He filmed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and just about everywhere else. He decided to come out of retirement to help out in eastern Ukraine. Kiev put a ban on the entry onto the territory of Ukraine of ALL RUSSIAN MALES aged 16 to 60. Western democracy in action, people!
So, Anatoly Klyan said: “I am over 60. I can go, I can be useful.” Russian correspondent and Klyan were riding in the bus together with soldiers’ mothers, who were going to a Ukrainian military base to protest their conscripted sons being dragged into war with their own people. The bus was ambushed. Klyan was wounded and died before reaching the hospital. The driver was wounded in the head and drove the bus to safety with the bleeding head wound, at the expense of his life. He died too.
Another report in Russian about Klyan’s death – Tragedy in Donetsk:
3. Also, a news summary for Novorossia from AnnaNews. (the video below had to be deleted because YT terminated the AnnaNews channel a few minutes ago). They have the English stream at the bottom of screen. They also talk about the death of the Russian cameraman and bus driver. In another news: Novorossia announced that all properties by oligarch Akhmetov will be nationalized (he is the biggest oligarch in Donbass). Also nationalized will be all properties of those oligarchs who are refusing to pay taxes to the Donetsk Republic. Also, in Slavyansk, which is constantly being bombed, people are being hospitalized with symptoms of Chlorine (or Chlor?) poisoning. It appears Kiev is using Chlor based chemical weapons on population.
Text in Russian: В Донецке на территории воинской части 1428 фашисты открыли огонь по автобусу, в котором находились матери солдат-срочников и журнилисты. В результате обстрела был убит оператор ОРТ Анатолий Клян и водитель автобуса, который ценой своей жизни вывез автобус с людьми из-под обстрела. СКР России возбудило по данному факту уголовное дело. Под обстрел у воинской части попала так же съемочная группа Lifenews.
С горы Карачун продолжался обстрел района Артем города Славянска. В результате обстрела есть убитые и раненые среди мирного населения, поврежден трансформатор — единственный на весь район. Украинские каратели обстреливают Металлист. Люди с симптомами отравления хлором поступают в больницы Славянка.
Пушилин заявил, что ДНР планирует национализировать предприятия Р.Ахметова и все предприятия, которые не платят налоги.
