Bulgaria returning home
Once, Bulgaria was called the 16th republic of the Soviet Union. It was a reference to the fact that Bulgaria was probably the closest to Russia of all Eastern European countries.
Although, who knows. I personally met Albanians, who lived for years in the US, and when they found out I was Russian they were ecstatic, saying how much they loved Russia and the Russian language. And mind you, on government and ideological levels Albania and the USSR were at odds since Khrushchev carelessly damaged the system of friendships constructed by his predecessors. Still, despite having lived for years in the US these people retained warm feelings towards Russia. I met Greeks, also living in the US, who were just as in love with Russia and grateful that Russia liberated Greece from the Ottoman Empire.
By 1991, when USSR stopped existing, Gorbachev, and later Yeltsin, surrendered Russia’s spheres of influence to the US and EU. Promptly, US-trained russophobes were installed at the helm of every country formerly friendly to Russia. Bulgaria was seduced by all kinds of imaginary riches and dragged into the EU. Of course Bulgarians realized years later that their economy was destroyed as a result of joining the EU.
US stooges and russophobes were put in charge of this, formerly most pro-Russian, Eastern European country. Western-trained and financed MSM began spewing dirt about Russia, history was re-written to diminish or silence Russia’s role in liberating Bulgaria from the Turkish Ottoman Empire in 1878 and from German Nazis in 1945.
But no matter how much they tried, Bulgarian people never stopped loving Russia. In Ukraine, ukro-nazi ideology combined with post-USSR confusion, extreme poverty and $5 billion spent by Victoria Nuland and USA to subvert the country did something wicked to the population. By contrast, russophobia never really took in Bulgaria. Yes, some forgot their own history, but the majority never did.
Last year the puppet Bulgarian government refused to host South Stream on its territory after pressure from US senator McCain. The South Stream deal, if executed, would have brought Bulgaria a very nice income and gas discounts. The actions of Bulgarian government were clearly against the interests of the country.
It seems that this event, plus the ukro-nazi takeover of Ukraine, woke up Bulgarians. Protests against NATO, US, ukro-nazis, and in favor of closer ties with Russia began last year, and they continue.
Bulgarians are peaceful, friendly people, who don’t like to fight. They hope that their peaceful protests can change the situation. This remains to be seen. One thing for certain: discontent with NATO, US dictate and the direction of the country is growing every day. The memory is also returning, and it’s only a matter of time until total recall happens.
Millenia ago Bulgarians lived on the shores of the mighty Russian river Volga, having later migrated to the Balkans. Russian and Bulgarian are very close languages; separation between Russian and Bulgarian languages may have occurred later than some think, possibly as late as 16th century. Because of their Volga origins, they were called ‘Volgari,’ which later became ‘Bolgari, ‘ – Bulgarians. Incidentally, to this day people residing around Volga are called in Russian ‘volgari’ – emphasis on ‘i.’
This is a short video clip about the 2015 Bulgarian Russophil Sobor, aka, Conference of the Friends of Russia in Bulgaria. The nice song sung by a Bulgarian singer in Russian is about Crimea, Sevastopol, and the Russian fleet returning to native shores, finally home after a long voyage. I think the metaphor should be clear.
The posters people carry say: “Thank you Russia – 1878, 1945,” “Russia and Bulgaria together,” “Stop madness,” “Stop USA terrorism,” “No NATO – Yankee go home.”
Check out the Putin and Russia T-shirts people are wearing!
Watch this cool video:
Asia Ivanova from Varna, Bulgaria, is the spokesperson for ‘Bulgaria for Peace’ protests. She says that many activists have received threats and some fear for their lives. She talks about the dates of weekly anti-NATO, pro-Russia protests in various cities. These take place every single week for over a year – pretty amazing consistency, if you ask me!
If anyone is in Bulgaria, these protests take place every Sunday in Sofia, Varna, Plovdiv and Dobrich. Asia says that if they are being silenced, this means they are on the right track and they must continue doing it so the entire world would hear them. On Saturday 10/10/15 at 10 am they are also doing an automotive event in Varna to culminate at the city’s central Cathedral in support of Russian anti-terrorist activities. Similar event will also take place in Sofia.
“Bulgarians are proud people and we do not appreciate being told what to do. All of EU is now experiencing tremendous pressure. We do not like it that Bulgaria is not taken seriously. We want to return Bulgaria’s good name. Russians should know we are not traitors and we are trying to prove it (referring to the fact that some in Russia consider Bulgarians traitors since despite all Russia has done for Bulgaria, Bulgarian puppet government sided with US and Brussels against Russia).
It’s unfair that people are dying from civil war in Ukraine while UN and West ignore it. Meanwhile, Russia does everything to preserve peace, and it’s being labeled aggressor. The whole world now understands that this is a shameless lie.”

Why did Angela Merkel suddenly get 120 tons of German gold back from the US? How much gold is really left in Fort Knox and NY FED vaults? How much gold do China and Russia really own?
Latest from Beijing: On the sidelines of the 2014 APEC Summit in Beijing, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese Premier Xi Jinping have signed 17 economic cooperation agreements, including the new gas supply framework agreement. In addition, on Monday Putin will meet privately with heads of Indonesia, Malaysia and Japan.
The framework of the new mega-deal being signed between Russia and China seals Russia’s resolute Asia pivot, as I have predicted since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. In addition to the Eastern Route pipeline running through Vladivostok and servicing Eastern Siberian and the Far East deposits, the new ‘Western Route’ pipeline running through the Altai Mountain range will now send Russian gas to China from Western Siberia as well.
This new deal will allow Russia to sell an additional 30 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas to China for 30 years. This is the next leg in the multi-prong multi-year strategic partnership program between Russia and China.
The first in this massive strategic initiative was the 30-year mega-deal signed by Gazprom in May to supply 38 bcm a year to China using Eastern Siberia/Far East gas deposits. The Eastern Route pipeline is already being built through Mongolia, which stands to gain generous transit fees, thus becoming an important strategic partner for both Russia and China. For more on this see my article from 9/4/14: Predictions Coming True! Russia Pivots to Asia: Putin goes to Mongolia and Opens Power of Siberia Pipeline to China.
Subsequent steps were the recent energy, trade and finance agreements between Russia and China, signed one month ago. These agreements included a currency swap worth 150 billion yuan ($25 billion) intended partly to reduce the influence of the US dollar.
The new Western Route deal will double the volume of Russian gas going to China. This will make China Russia’s No.1 customer, surpassing the EU.
Since February-March 2014, in my articles, YT videos and interviews, as well is in my predictions, I had been saying the following:
1. Russia is the ultimate planetary balancer. When there is an imbalance, as we presently see happening with the West, Russia will rebalance the status quo.
2. ‘If Russians feel even slightly inconvenienced by Western sanctions – off to the East they go.’ Russia’s pivot to the East is now shaping up.
3. I also predicted that in several years time Europe will start experiencing serious gas shortages as Russian gas gets diverted to China. And they will have absolutely no one but themselves to blame. 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the solution for Europe is to break down the new wall US, with Poland’s and Baltics’ help, is so diligently building between Europe and Russia.
4. I also warned that the USA’s goal is to drive a wedge between Russia and Europe to prevent their growing cooperation. At the same time, the goal is also to weaken Russia as its main geopolitical competitor, and to weaken Europe as its main know-how economic competitor.
Wake up, Europeans! It’s up to you to pivot towards the future, not the past!
Video (incl. gas route maps): Putin, Xi Jinping sign framework gas supply deal via ‘Western route’:
Russian President Vladimir #Putin announced that Russia will criminalize #Monsanto and any other bio-tech companies who attempt to plant, or lie/conceal that they have planted #GMO seeds on Russian territory. Lying, or concealing GMO-related activity, as well as mislabelling GMO products, will bear jail sentence and will be equated to terrorism. Meanwhile, Russia and China sign a mega deal to supply Russian gas and discuss building the ambitious high-speed railroad connecting Eurasia and America. How does all this effect the future of China, Russia, as well as the US and EU? And more.
Original article: Russia’s Moves: Outlawing GMO and Putin’s Holy Grail Gas Deal with China
Russia and China signed what is called the “Holy Grail gas deal” worth $400 bln. It guarantees the supply of Russian gas to China for 30 years. The Russia-China pipeline construction alone, associated with this deal, will be the largest construction project in the world. Currently, 70% of China’s energy needs are fulfilled by local coal. As a result, China is suffocating in harmful smog. China wants to move to the cleaner energy and Russian gas is providing this opportunity.
With the largest gas reserves in the world, Russia has plenty of gas to supply to China, as well as the EU. Presently, most of the Russian gas is purchased by the EU to feed its very large economy. However, half of Russia’s gas transit to the EU is being held hostage by the hostile Kiev regime managed directly by the US with EU’s help, and EU/US keep insisting on slapping sanctions against Russia. Because of pressures from the West, Russia has to re-assess its economic and geopolitical priorities. What the Western leaders are realizing too slowly is that Russia is holding all the cards.
I predicted this exact outcome from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis. The thing is that the myopic “leaders” in the EU and US misjudged Russian leadership. More disturbingly, they seriously overestimated their own value to Russia. Read the rest of this entry
This is a follow-up to my last article: Russia’s Moves: Outlawing GMO and Putin’s Holy Grail Gas Deal with China. In addition to the GMO and Russia/China gas mega-deal, I have discussed Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany. Please go to the link to see what I said.
In response to my words about #Merkel, I received this very interesting comment from a regular reader of this blog and I thought it was so telling that I decided to create a new article by responding to it. Pieter’s comments are always sharp. However, this one perhaps underlines the confusions that exist in the EU. Please forgive me that I am not mincing words. This is because we are talking very serious issues and sometimes you need to say it straight in order to get through the mud of confusion.
Pieter from Europe says: “I don’t think Merkel has to fear a scandal. She’s too smart and well organized for such crap.
Merkel fears an escalation. I’m fearing that too. That internet satellite Russia launched last week was shot down. By a ufo, an unknown weapon of the US forces, I don’t know. But that satellite was brought down. Certain evolutions are confusing me. Let’s wait what the may 25 elections will bring for Ukraine.” Read the rest of this entry
Bravo! About time! And a great example for the rest of the world!
Russian President Vladimir #Putin announced that Russia will criminalize #Monsanto and any other bio-tech companies who attempt to plant, or lie/conceal that they have planted #GMO seeds on Russian territory. The public support for such measures is tremendous. In fact, people have been waiting for this to happen for years.
Lying, or concealing GMO-related activity, as well as mislabelling GMO products, will bear jail sentence and will be equated to terrorism. The people’s health is the most important thing, not profit, according to Russian authorities.
Many countries world-wide have suffered from GMO. While Europe has banned GMO on its territory, Monsanto practically cornered the market for genetically modified organisms in the USA, Latin America and many poor Asian countries. The situation with GMO is catastrophic in countries like Argentina and Mexico, to name a few. Due to corrupt politicians, poor farmers, and population simply desperate to survive, it is impossible to know for certain how many countries and what kinds of crops have succumbed to GMO infestation in Asia.
While GMO was never planted in Russia, attempts have been made to introduce it. The opposition to GMO has been strong in Russia for years. Many citizens and politicians speak up against it. A couple of years ago, Russian Duma tentatively approved GMO seeds for planting, however, this law remained in a limbo, waiting to be overturned and generating a storm of grass-roots protests. Counter-proposals to ban GMO because of their harm to health and environment were discussed. This time, Russian Duma is acting quite decisively and is set to ban GMO, as well as impose criminal charges on those who don’t adhere to the pending law. Read the rest of this entry
German Chancellor Angela Merkel accused Russia of invading the Crimea and of acting in violation of the international norms. In her address to the Bundestag, she said that Russia’s aggressive behavior reminds her of how countries acted in the 19th and 20th centuries. Read the rest of this entry
Lada Ray Interview About Ukraine and Russia With Plane Truth:
The Road to Moscow Goes Through Kiev
Listen to my interview with the Time Monk Radio‘s show, The Plane Truth. It includes the analysis of the events in Ukraine; Russia, US and EU’s roles and aims; Ukraine and Russia’s history and how Ukraine became the artificial entity that it is today. Around 40:00 we talk about striking geopolitical similarities between Georgia war/Beijing Olympics and Ukraine coup/Sochi Olympics. later in the show we discuss the long-ranging predictions for Ukraine, Russia, US, EU, and more!
In response to my ongoing series of articles about #Ukraine, #Crimea and #Russia, I have been receiving a number of supportive emails, tweets and RTs, as well as comments on Youtube and my blogs. However, there are also these: Read the rest of this entry
On Friday, March 7, 2014 I will be on the Time Monk Radio’s show PLANE TRUTH. We will be talking in detail about the situation in Ukraine, Russia’s role, USA/EU, geopolitics and my predictions.
The interview is here: The Road to Moscow Goes Through Kiev
Latest news: #G7 countries have announced a suspension of preparations for the #G8 meeting that was supposed to be held in #Sochi in June. #USA and #EU also announced they would be imposing sanctions on #Russia for “invading” their own naval base in #Crimea, protecting Russia’s own fleet and millions of Russians that were openly threatened by the #nazis taking over #Kiev.
Those who came here late, may read my prior posts with thorough analysis and video proofs of what is really happening in Ukraine. Particularly Part 4: Nazi coup succeeds. At the bottom of this post also find a link to: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts’ analysis of the Western media double standards and lies regarding Crimea and Ukraine. Also there is a link to the new leaked conversation between EU Foreign Minister and Estonian Foreign minister in which it is revealed that the snipers EU tries to pin on Yanukovich that shot demonstrators and police in Kiev were hired by the opposition.
The above news and their implications I want to discuss in this piece. However, before we start, I want to point out one of many obvious insanities of the US and EU, which will eventually result in a big problem for both. Note: in the Western news this was not reported at all, or it was twisted to appear that black was white and vice versa. Read the rest of this entry
