Summary

On September 2, 2016 the government of Uzbekistan officially announced that Islam Karimov, continuous Uzbek president of 25 years, who had been in this post since 1991, suddenly passed on after a massive stroke. There were rumors that he, in fact, had died earlier but the real date was concealed.

The significance of what happened is three-fold.

1. Uzbekistan is a pivotal crossroads of Eurasia. In medieval times, its famous cities of Samarkand and Bukhara served as key connector points on the ancient Silk Road to Russia and Europe.

Today, this former Soviet Republic has a different significance. Still the richest and most influential state in Central Asia (except Kazakhstan), it serves as a key connector between republics which are in line for ascension into Eurasian Union. Therefore, it is a lucrative strategic location to stage a color revolution in order to prevent the re-unification of Eurasia.

2. It is a tough test for the legacy left by Karimov and for the sturdiness of structures he was able to build after this Soviet republic literally fell in his lap during the breakup of the USSR.

Will his power and state security structures be able to deal with the aftermath of his death? There will definitely be attempts to create Islamic State (IS) and/or nationalistic Maidan in Uzbekistan. Some called Karimov ‘a dictator.’ Others consider him a Western sell-out. Whatever one may think of him, it is undeniable that he managed to preserve the republic he received 25 years ago intact, and didn’t allow it to descend into the chaos of Muslim fundamentalism.

Uzbekistan has been primed for the Kiev-style Maidan since 1991, where many failed color revolution attempts took place. This activity in the past 2 years has intensified dramatically, coinciding with Ukraine 2014 coup and subsequent moves by Russia and Putin to expand Eurasian Union. I’d warned of the upcoming attempts at color revolutions in Central Asia and Caucasus in ESR9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN – WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION.

Like its neighbors, Uzbekistan began its progress towards EAEU, while distancing itself from the former ally USA. And that’s when Karimov suddenly passed on.

3. Was his death natural, or was it a foul play? At 78, Islam Karimov was the oldest of the post-Soviet space leaders. What has happened exposes a massive weak link in the power structures of Russia and post-Soviet / Eurasian states.

This glaring weakness has been known for years; however, to this date a fool-proof solution hasn’t been found yet. I am talking about the fact that unlike in the West (say USA), where the country’s leader is mostly, or entirely, a figurehead, with real puppet masters hiding in the safety of the behind-the-scenes obscurity, there is no shadow government in Russia and former republics. The real, and usually very strong leader is on top, for all to see. Consequently, such leader becomes a lightning rod for attacks.

New Armenia Color Revolution Attempt Begins!

This happened on Sunday, July 17, 2016:

One person was killed when armed men stormed a police station in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, on Sunday. Police have surrounded the building and are negotiating with the group, who took several hostages. The Yerevan’s and country’s deputy chiefs of police were taken hostage, among others. The internet in the country is also currently down.

Sunday video:

Today, Wednesday, July 20, 2016 the siege of the police station and hostage situation still continue.

This is today’s live streaming video from RT’s Ruptly: 

Ruptly is LIVE from Yerevan on the fourth day of a hostage siege on Wednesday, July 20, after an armed group stormed a police station in the Armenian capital and took control of the building on Sunday, July 17. One person was killed and several injured during Sunday’s attack. Soldiers have been dispatched to surround the building and police have continued negotiating with the group.
Armenia’s Deputy Police Chief General Major Vardan Egiazaryan and Yerevan’s Deputy Chief of Police Valeri Osipyan are believed to be among the hostages. Two hostages were reportedly freed on Tuesday, July 19, with seven or eight believed to remain inside. Local media are reporting that the group, which calls itself the ‘Daredevils of Sassoun,’ is demanding the release of jailed opposition leader Jirayr Sefilyan, who was arrested in June for illegal arms trafficking, as well as the release of other political prisoners, including Gevorg Safaryan, Valodia Avedisyan, and Shant Haroutynyan.

Yerevan is a battle zone: street clashes with police on streets of Armenian capital as the new color revolution attempt unfolds:

This post should be read in conjunction with my previous Deadly Extremist Attack in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

The situation in Armenia and Kazakhstan – previously two of the most stable members of Eurasian Union – is escalating. The events in these two former Soviet republics, one located between Central Asia and Siberia and another in Caucasus, mirror each other and are connected. The real target in both cases is the weakening of Eurasian Union, and consequently, weakening of Russia.

The events in Armenia are retaliation for Armenia joining Eurasian Union, coupled with the goal of destabilization of Caucasus and punishment of Russia for successes in Syria, Turkey and the Middle East. Kazakhstan is being punished for being a founding member of EAEU, plus Nazarbayev’s key role in bringing to fruition the reconciliation of Russia and Turkey.

This last point will be explained fully in my soon upcoming Earth Shift Report on the failed coup in Turkey. Stay tuned for this and other urgent Earth Shift Reports!

Four major attempts at color revolution/Maidan coup in Armenia in the past two years, as well as the CIA color revolution technology from Ukraine to Armenia discussed in Lada Ray’s

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 9:

ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN: WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION?

ESR9 BANNER

We are witnessing the continuation. Unfortunately, my prediction is that such attempts to destabilize EAEU and its members will continue. Those who organize such events, namely USA/CIA and other Western entities, have an uncanny talent for seeking out the weak links: violent sociopaths, terrorists, traitors, disgruntled or greedy employees, etc. At this moment in the process of the Great Earth Shift every weak link is a major risk. Each and every country better head this warning!

Eurasia Developments: Belarus Monetary Reform; Moscow World’s Most Dynamic City; Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence

EAEU map short

Eurasia and EAEU Developments: Goodbye Belorussian Millions (Belarus Monetary Reform); Moscow – World’s Most Dynamic City; Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence Network

Since there is a demand among my readers for the positive and noteworthy news from Russia and Eurasia, here are some breaking news of interest. I am combining these three items in one as they are loosely related.

The news are: 1. The long-overdue Belorussian ruble monetary reform; 2. the recognition of Moscow as the world’s most dynamically developing city; 3. Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence Network

Why are they related? It’s clear to me that despite Russian sanctions, despite attempts to destabilize Eurasia and EAEU, despite US attempting to generate color revolutions and conflicts between members of the EAEU, the big Eurasian ship is continuing its steady movement forward. And that’s good news.

I do recommend, for those of my readers who never got the chance, to go ahead and read/watch my Earth Shift Reports dedicated to the topic at hand (ESRs are donation-based and you’ll find full instructions on report page). These reports summarize and pull together all the relevant intel, plus my analytics and predictions, thus giving you a complete and diverse picture of everything surrounding EAEU and Eurasia. Here they are:

  1. ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? (on Russia/Belarus/Kazakhstan)
  2. ESR9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN: WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION (all about Kazakhstan, Central Asia and Caucasus, Armenia featuring prominently)

Goodbye Belorussian Millions!  (Belarus Monetary Reform)

Till today, in order to do some basic shopping Belorussians had to carry large wads of cash. Say, a kilo of meat would cost you 120,000 Belo-rubles (incidentally, Belo-rubles is my own witty abbreviation for Belorussian rubles). In reality, the whopping 10,000 ruble banknote has been small change, while the actual metal coins haven’t been seen in Belarus since Soviet times. I traveled to Belarus in 2015 and I can tell you that trying to figure out what costs what in real terms while pulling out of your wallet banknotes worth ‘millions’ to make a minor purchase was awfully awkward. Other than that I enjoyed my trip tremendously. Belarus has problems of its own, but overall it looks pretty good, especially in comparison with neighboring Ukraine and Baltics. I describe how it all compares in ESR1.

For a moment and a half I even considered moving to Minsk, the capital of Belarus, after a lucrative advisory offer I received.

By far the biggest problem Belarus has is rampant inflation and lack of confidence in the national currency. I told my contacts in Belarus that this problem isn’t Belarus’s fault. Moreover, it simply cannot be fixed under today’s global economic and financial conditions, until 4 things change globally:

1. There is no way to correct this problem for as long as the US dollar is the dominant and practically only global reserve currency;

2. In order for Belo-ruble to stabilize, a new multipolar world has to emerge and take hold;

3. Belarus has to integrate much more into the Eurasian Union and the new common currency has to emerge;

4. The new global economy must be based NOT on money, as the Western-centric model does today, but on resources and production. In other words, the predatory Western economic/finance model has to be replaced.

All these processes have to develop together, and once the critical mass is reached the stabilization will occur naturally.

The above 4 conditions apply in different degrees to Russia, Brazil, China and absolutely all economies of the world. Some, due to added political factors, are hit harder than others. So add to the above list the change in the political system of the West.

However, Belarus can’t wait that long. Monetary reform was planned in 2008, yet it was postponed due to the global crisis. The money printed and coins stamped in 2008 sat in the vaults. This new money is being released tomorrow, July 1, 2016.

Belarus is saying goodbye to the easy ‘Belorussian millionaires’ whose real assets would be meager compared to small potatoes in nearby Russia. June 30 was the last day the astronomical multi-million ruble store prices were in effect. Starting tomorrow Belo-ruble slashes four zeros and what has been 10,000 rubles will become just 1 ruble.

It has to be noted that Belorussian ruble is not the same as Russian ruble, although it shares the name. The traditional Russian ruble got divided as a result of the 1991 USSR breakup. In the ’90s the worst plunge the Russian ruble experienced was $1 to 600 rubles, and that was a catastrophe. At the very same time Belo-ruble fell by hundreds of times against the plunging Russian ruble.

The Belorussian monetary reform will be gradual and old money will be accepted for a while next to the new ruble. Here is a video in Russian, showing Belarus and some of the Belorussian money – the old and the new rubles:

Moscow as the world’s most dynamically developing city

Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has announced that Moscow tops the global list of seven most dynamically developing cities. A number of new high-profile city development projects were presented at today’s Moscow International Urban Development Forum. Moscow also has been named one of the world’s ten cities with best investment climate – VIDEO.

So much for sanctions, ‘international isolation’ and all that jazz.

Below some of my images of Moscow: 1. Moskva River embankment with Christ the Savior Cathedral and Peter the Great monument, 2. Alexandrovsky (Alexander) Gardens near Kremlin, 3. Novodevichy Monastery.

(Just recalling Obama’s last year’s pronouncements that ‘Russia’s economy has been blown to pieces’ and that ‘no one goes to Russia any more.’ Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama: what a fabulous match they are, and talk about being a laughingstock.) 

Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence Network

Armenian parliament voted to join the Russian air defence network. The development is especially noteworthy because it happens after relentless attempts by US to create a rift between Russia and Armenia, plus multiple attempts of color revolution and political regime change, in order to tear Armenia away from Russia and Eurasian Union, which this post-Soviet republic joined in 2015. I describe all these subversive attempts and how Russia managed to fend off the attacks in ESR9.

Another interesting coincidence of Armenia joining Russian international air defence system at this very moment is that it happens within one day after Erdogan/Turkey issued official public apology to Russia for Su24 fighter jet downing last year. As I discussed in ESR9, Turkey and Armenia are mortal enemies, who happen to share a border. The timing is, therefore, significant and sends a specific message to Erdogan/Turkey and to the West.

I am coming out with a full report and analytics for the stunning Erdogan’s apology, its international effect and new Russia-Turkey relations as a result of this jaw-dropping turnaround. Why did Erdogan apologize after 7 months of denials and silence? What it means and how will it affect Turkey’s relations with Russia, EU, US, NATO? Stay tuned for my report.

Also coming! Breaking news: US warship harasses Russian frigate in the Mediterranean. Does US need a reminder of the 1988 Black Sea incident? (I am not even talking about the USS Donald Cook 2014 Black Sea incident). I’ll show you the jaw-dropping 1988 incident.
