Urgent! President Of Moldova Dodon’s Car Rammed by Truck! Hours After Abkhazia PM killed! (Open Season on Pro-Russian Leaders?)
I am making this PATREON Urgent Alert public and FREE for all!
This is open season on pro-Russian leaders, people of common sense and truth.
This is the shocking first footage of a truck plowing into Moldovan President Igor Dodon’s motorcade on Sunday. The crash occurred when a truck skidded into oncoming traffic, crashing into two cars from the presidential convoy, reportedly near the town of Straseni.
Igor Dodon (left) talking to Putin
Coincidence of Open Season?
Dodon’s ‘accident’ follows the recent assassination by the pro-US Kiev junta of the Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexandr Zakharchenko (see my several articles on Patreon, and FT). As I wrote on Patreon, Zakharchenko was also the most popular politician in the whole Ukraine, who would have won next year’s presidential elections, should he be allowed to run by Kiev!
But it gets worse! Dodon’s ‘accident’ comes just hours after Gennady Gagulia, the prime minister of Abkhazia, a Russian-backed republic that broke away from Georgia in the 1990s, died in a car crash in a similar way.
Want to know the background?
I had extensive reports on Moldova and Pridnestrovie in the previous years. Search for my articles on Dodon and Moldova here on FT, and look for my original, extensive Moldova/Pridnestrovie video on Lada Ray YT (under Lada Ray Live series) and the whole Moldova/Odessa/Pridnestrovie situation was summarized and long-ranging predictions made in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

Armenia Maidan Paradox: Why New Pro-West Armenia Government Pledged Allegiance to Russia & Eurasian Union?
Jun 14 BY LADA RAY
The new POST-SOVIET SPACE & THE FUTURE OF EURASIAN UNION series continues!
**This series is part of the June PATRON APPRECIATION Month!
Read my flagship post in this new series: PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
Today’s BIG REPORT!
THESE ARE EXTENSIVE EXCERPTS & OVERVIEW!
Eurasian Union Summit May 2018, Russia (second from left: Nikol Pashinyan, new Armenia PM, who was elected not through legitimate elections, but by the ‘street’ as a result of Kiev-Maidan-style protests. Despite that Armenia re-confirmed its interest in Eurasian Union and allegiance to Russia.)
OVERVIEW OF ARMENIA’S VOLATILE SITUATION
Armenia is one of the 5 full members of the Eurasian Union. As a weak country detached from Russia, Armenia is a lucrative and promising playground for Western NGOs and color revolution attempts. Armenia is a very small country, with the official population of 2.9 million. But this data could be exaggerated, as up to 2-3 million Armenians have emigrated and live in Russia alone. Many also live in the US and EU.
But even if we assume there are 2.9 million people residing in Armenia, for such a small population there are upward of 500-700 Western-based NGOs (I’ve heard estimates in thousands). Knowing how NGOs work and how they bribe locals in any given country, just imagine the scope of the pro-West brainwashing in Armenia!
It has to be noted that Russia had a similar infestation of US/UK NGO’s, but it was dealt with by Putin’s government between 2005-2015. However, some of the weak and corrupt post-Soviet space states are very much under siege by Western NGOs to this day. These NGOs buy up elites and the media, and they promise lavish rewards to the young. In Ukraine, we have seen the sad results such situation can lead to.
WHY ARMENIA IS A PRIZE FOR THE WEST
Lately Armenia has been regularly compared to Ukraine. In many ways, the situations in Ukraine and Armenia are similar, but in many ways they are drastically different.
Let’s see how this manifests in practice.
Like Ukraine, after the collapse of the USSR, Armenia gradually lost its compass and started forgetting its direction. The manifestation of its weakness was delayed, much like in Ukraine. For years, Russia continued to carry both Ukraine and Armenia, and that lulled both into complacency as they believed that despite different circumstances they could continue sucking the wealth our of Russia, without giving anything back.
But free lunch was coming to an end, as Russia in the 2000s began demanding responsibility and reciprocity from the former republics. That’s when color revolutions began manifesting in Ukraine (2004 and 2014), Armenia (2015-18) and Moldova (2007), Georgia (2003). There was also a ‘tulip’ color revolution in Kyrgyzstan, as well as unsuccessful attempts in Kazakhstan and Belarus. I described the deep psychological mechanisms of these events in ESR3.
In that respect the Ukraine Maidan and Armenia’s color revolution attempts are similar. But there are differences as well. Ukraine, after all, is a large country, located in the middle of Europe. It borders a number of countries, including several EU states and Russia, thus insuring markets and better cross-border penetration for the population, unable to find jobs inside the country. Ukraine also has access to very good ports in the Odessa region. Overall it inherited probably the best economic and industrial potential of all ex-Soviet republics.
Armenia is very small and landlocked. It borders only 4 countries, at least three of them hostile to it. There is no common border with Russia and no access to ports.
As a weak, poor and in many ways deeply compromised country, Armenia constitutes a lucrative piece for the Western bribery and brainwashing.
But therein also lies a problem for the West.
ARMENIAN MAIDAN ATTEMPTS
The attempts to play anti-Russian card in Armenia were many.
In the past several years Armenia and capital Erevan went through numerous attempts to execute color revolutions, using various false flags and economic hardship as pretexts. One was a violent protest after a serviceman from the Russian base committed a crime (it later transpired he was under the influence of drugs someone with an agenda secretly gave him); another protest, almost resulting in a full Maidan, was engineered around the 15% hike in consumer electricity price. An interesting part of both protests was that they attempted to exploit the anti-Russian card, demanding that Russian base leave Armenia and blaming Russia for the 15% electric bill hike.
The latest attempt, which took place in the spring of 2018, was centered around public discontent of Serzh Sargsyan continuing tenure in top posts. Sargsyan was till recently the president of Armenia, and when his presidential term was over he was immediately appointed prime minister of Armenia.
During the previous ‘Electric Maidan’ of 2015 the government succumbed to the demands of protesters and made a switch from the presidential republic to the parliamentary republic. I will explain later in this article how it happened and why it was significant.
Serzh Sargsyan was considered a voice of the oligarchs. It has to be noted that Armenian oligarchs in their vast majority made their fortunes either in Russia…
WHY RUSSIAN CONNECTION?
There is no conspiracy here at all. By some accounts, up to 1/2 of the Armenian population (could be more, since many aren’t registered) live and work in Russia. Those who left were the most proactive, fastest, shrewdest and most likely to succeed. Many best educated Armenians also left.
It’s important to note that Armenia was one of the most heavily subsidized Soviet republics. It sucked much more resources from Russia than it gave back, thus drastically over-consuming, while Russia severely under-consumed – all this is discussed in my previous post: PUTIN’SDOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
(I am in possession of a very rare and revealing diagram, showing clearly who subsidized whom in the USSR – one day I’ll share it with you!)
SELF-PRESERVATION OR CIA FAILURE? WHAT WENT WRONG WITH ARMENIAN MAIDAN?
And that’s when something very strange began to happen…
The clear and firm signal from the Armenian people was that protests UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES COULD BE ANTI-RUSSIAN. Just the opposite, Armenians went on record to say how important and close Russia was to them. When Ukrainian or Georgian provocateurs appeared in the crowd, attempting to shift the protests towards anti-Russian agenda, they were outed and expelled by self-policing crowds.
A big Armenian PR action began. Every Armenian who went public ardently proclaimed in interviews to the Russian media that Armenia’s situation was completely different from Ukrainian, and they got very offended if Russians called it ‘Armenian Maidan.’
Russians continued to watch silently and sceptically. The secret signal from the Kremlin was that Russia would act according to the new situation. And the new situation could potentially include pulling the plug on the Russian Gyumry base, Russia’s support of the peaceful resolution in Karabakh, as well as economic implications of an unknown scope.
Putin shakes Armenia PM Nikol Pashinyan’s hand in Russia, EAU summit 2018.
As a result, the newly installed by the street, unelected new prime minister Pashinyan, who was supported in his activities by Western NGOs and who just recently proclaimed that Armenia would exit EAU and work on joining EU and NATO, performed a full air flip, making a spectacular 180 degree turnaround. The very first international visit he made was to Russia, to take part in the EAU summit, where he proclaimed his allegiance to Russia and EAU.
ARMENIA’S PRECARIOUS GEOPOLITICAL SITUATION
Landlocked in the southern Caucasus, Armenia has borders only with 4 countries: Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iran and Georgia. It does not share a border with Russia. Out of the 4 countries it borders, Armenia is at odds and doesn’t have diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan (the state of cold war due to Gorny Karabakh conflict) and Turkey (where the genocide of Armenians took place in the beginning of 20th century).
Armenian Empire dreams…
As seen on the map above:
Big parts of the territory in this map presently belong to Turkey (a huge lump of ‘Western Armenia’), and a small part in the north belongs to Georgia, who already lost 1/3 of its territory after Abkhazia and S. Ossetia secession.
Not to mention the eastern-most ‘Armenia’, aka, Nagorno-Karabakh, populated mostly by Armenians, which was during the USSR an autonomous part of nearby Azerbaijan. The secession war against Azerbaijan began in Karabakh as soon as the USSR fell apart, or more precisely, it began even before 1991, but went into its hot phase after. The Karabakh situation can be compared to the Donbass situation.
It is so weak that without Russian military base it likely wouldn’t survive for long as a sovereign country. It can easily be swallowed by the 4 neighbors: Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
In this context, Armenia should be grateful forever to Russia for keeping balance in the region. Yet, in the past several years we have seen plenty of anti-Russian attacks.
Here are some pictures:
1. ‘Electric’ Maidan 2015 – due to the 15% hike in electric fees the near coup was executed. Russian business, who I very much suspect has clear Armenian roots, behaved very reasonably and agreed to rescind the hikes, at a financial loss to its bottom line. So did Russian government, who was forced to subsidize Armenian electricity market to avoid Kiev-style Maidan developing. Yet, anti-Russia/anti-Putin slogans were present at the Electric Maidan, actively encouraged by foreign interests.
This is a picture from the 2015 ‘Electric’ Maidan – you’ll recognize the figure of Putin in a compromising position (the sign reads: ‘into Putin’s a*s’):
The sheer signature of the Gyumri false flag points clearly at CIA/US, in conjunction with Armenian anti-Russian ‘revolutionaries’ on CIA/NGO payroll.
3. Below are the 2018 Armenian ‘Velvet revolution’ pics. But no, don’t believe your lying eyes… it certainly wasn’t a typical ‘Maidan color revolution.’
Truth be told, compared to Kiev and Ukraine, the Armenian ‘velvet revolution’ was a lot more peaceful and more controlled.
It ended in a civilized manner, despite certain elements pushing for violence. It failed to achieve its anti-Russian goals.
This is a big victory for Russia the Great Balancer and yet another step towards the Earth Shift!

We will be discussing the Earth Shifting and promising events in Moldova, which are also developing per my predictions! Moldova is much more important than many realize, and it’s not only because of my warm feelings towards it!
There is a lot of important new developments and shifts in Novorossia/Donbass/Ukraine! There is important news from Odessa too! We are very much behind discussing Ukraine-Novorossia. I’ll try to fit all this into my schedule this and/or next week!
This week I’ll also have some announcements!
Next week we’ll also have more Quantum Calibrations of countries/leaders/armies. Which country do you want me to calibrate next?
I coined the term ‘Super-Bully of the World’ several years ago. Now the masks are finally off and the king is fully naked. The US openly threatens its ‘ally’ Germany with a trade war if Germany doesn’t stop the Nord Stream-2 project. The threats began before Merkel’s trip to Sochi where she met with Putin, and they are escalating after her return.
RT videos give you more details:
We had discussed in previous years how crucially important Nord Stream-2 is for all of Europe, and first and foremost, for Germany. And of course it’s very important for Russia. Essentially, now both EU and Russia are held hostage by Ukraine gas pipeline. Nord Stream-2 will completely change this status quo, taking most leverage away from the US for the control of Ukraine and EU.
US wants to continue holding EU and Russia hostage to the whims of the Kiev junta, whom they control. They also want to push their own expensive and dirty fracking gas onto Europe — and never mind that fracking pollutes the American lands!
Most of all, US desperately needs to prevent Germany-Russia alliance from forming, which will eventually be fortified by the mighty China joining it. This ultimate fear of Russia and Germany (and by extension the whole Europe) working together is in large part why the US/globalists orchestrated the Ukraine Maidan and ukro-nazi takeover 2014. This was also in large part the true reason behind WWI and WWII.
I, for my part, hope Germany and EU have enough balls not to cave in to the US pressure this time, like they did so many times before, while hurting their own interests. I think this is the one time when it won’t happen. Make no mistake, the US will continue its threats and 4D hybrid war will continue. I know the EU/Merkel/Germany will try to sit on two chairs at once, as so many countries try to do during EARTH SHIFT. We have discussed how it works in PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK.
But the EARTH SHIFT is still progressing in the right direction, even if it feels a little slow. I will be very happy to see when Eurasia is again re-united in one single cooperative space and Putin’s vision of Eurasian Union from Vladivostok to Lisbon becomes a reality!
Read my complete new article on Patreon: NEW SERIES! PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
This article is part of the new Eurasian Union Series on Patreon. We are discussing how, despite all the challenges EAU is growing and a number of countries are joining it as either observers or free trade zone partners. The list includes Vietnam, Moldova, Serbia, Israel, Egypt, India and more. We have also discussed Russia, the ‘Empire in Reverse’ and the ‘Inverted Collapse.’ The following posts in the series will address the important and baffling events in the post-Soviet space, Armenia Maidan and Moldova’s Trump.

Pictures and excerpts from Lada Ray’s latest Earth Shift Report 14:
SILK ROAD-ISLAMISM-MAIDAN-EURASIAN UNION
Where Uzbekistan falls on the new Eurasian map (2014)
Map of the Soviet Union: Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) is in purple, below Kazakh SSR
1. Uzbek SSR flag with Uzbek SSR crest superimposed (both based on the USSR flag and crest)
2. Today’s Uzbekistan flag (with decided influences from Muslim and US traditions)
Uzbekistan was always famous for its cotton and its food: cotton harvest
Famed Uzbek Plov, a very delicious dish, consisting of rice, meat, garlic and spices; carrots, raisins or other dried fruit could be added as well.
Vibrant Central Asian / Uzbek bazaars haven’t changed much since the times of the old Silk Road: local breads, vegetables and spices are sold.
The only difference: now women sell produce, while in medieval times only men were allowed to trade. A woman’s place was at home, cooking, cleaning, rearing children, while her face and body had to stay hidden at all times underneath a burqa.
It has to be strongly emphasized that this was a life of a woman in Central Asia before the 1917 Russian Revolution.
With all its shortcomings, the Revolution and new ideas by Lenin brought a true social revolution to backwards areas like Central Asia. Women suddenly could go to school, vote, gain professions and work outside of home.
Per Muslim custom, only males are allowed at President Karimov’s lavish funeral ceremony inside the historic Samarkand cemetery
PM Dmitry Medvedev, who has represented Russia at the late President Karimov’s funeral, consoles Karimov’s wife Tatyana Karimova and younger daughter Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva.
Notice that Karimov’s wife is Russian, and his daughter is married to a Russian, which we can tell by their names. Like in Kazakhstan, despite 25 years of ‘independence’ and attempts to distance away from Russia, national elites remain Russian-speaking and largely connected to Russia via education, culture, wives and various relatives.
The USSR invested untold billions into meticulously restoring and preserving the historic Silk Road city of Samarkand and another gem, Bukhara. If not for Soviet restoration and preservation, today little would be left of both.
Today, Samarkand is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Eurasia Developments: Belarus Monetary Reform; Moscow World’s Most Dynamic City; Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence
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:
- ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? (on Russia/Belarus/Kazakhstan)
- 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.

From the English language site of EEC: EurasianCommission.org
“Armenia is now in the Eurasian Economic Union”
January 2, the Treaty on Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union EAEU came into force. Armenia became the fourth full-fledged Member-State of the Eurasian Economic Union together with Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia.
By this Treaty Armenia has become a part of the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union, signed by the Presidents of the EAEU Member-States – Alexander Lukashenko, Nursultan Nazarbayev and Vladimir Putin on May 29, 2014 in Astana, as well as other international treaties forming the EAEU legal framework. From now on, Armenia undertakes corresponding obligations, and therewith gets access to the EAEU single market with 170 million citizens.
By joining the Eurasian Economic Union, the state gets fully involved into implementation of the Eurasian project aimed, on the one hand, at forming of four freedoms: free movement of goods, services, capital and labour force. On the other hand, – at creation of one of the key economic centers of evolving architecture of the multipolar world.
The fourth partner expects a number of positive effects form integration. Among the key ones there are an increase of goods turnover due to elimination of barriers and minimization of administrative expenses,an increase of mobility of labour force due to introduction to the single labour market, an increase of stability of economic development due to reduction of economic isolation effect, development of infrastructure projects, participation in drawing up of the agenda using the mechanisms of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The Treaty on accession provides for full involvement of Armenia’s representatives into the activities of the EAEU governance. Upon entry of the Treaty into force the President of Armenia becomes a full-fledged Member of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, and the Prime Minister becomes a Member of Intergovernmental Council; the full-fledged representative joins the Eurasian Economic Commission. Armenia will be represented by three Board Members in the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission, as well as other EAEU Member-States.”
Lada’s notes: As of June 11, 2016, EAEU has 5 full members: following Armenia, Kyrgyzstan joined EAEU in May 2015. Tajikistan is next in line.

2015 Armenian ‘Electric Maidan’
Between 2014 and 2016 there were 4 very serious attempts to ignite color revolution, instigate regime change and put a rift between Armenia & Russia/EAEU.
Remember: the mega-goal, the primary target and the biggest prize is ALWAYS RUSSIA!
US cannot allow the very possibility of a multipolar world!
So, on January 2, 2015 Armenia officially became a member of Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). Before that happened and ever since, there have been relentless attempts to destabilize Armenia by all means possible.
I have been warning about it since 2014.
Following a successful subversion of Ukraine by the US, all post-Soviet space leaders, as well as many other heads of state ,have been on high alert, knowing they could easily be next, and their country could be plunged into chaos and bloody war just as easily.
Armenia, due to its isolated and vulnerable geographic position, weak leadership and poor economic situation was the primary target. Since then, four very serious attempts to introduce color revolution, war and chaos were made in Armenia.
Chronologically from 2014 to 2016, these were:
1. A false flag ‘killing by a Russian soldier’ from the nearby military base of an Armenian family: needed to compel Armenia to boot out the Russian base – the only protection Armenia has against Turkey, its eternal enemy.
2. The so-called “Electric Maidan,” during which electric rates hikes were blamed on Russians (who else?), and where Ukrainian nationalists tried to infiltrate protests.
3. Sudden change of Armenia’s political structure from presidential republic to parliamentary republic, thus introducing additional instability.
4. The latest: April 2016 4-day Nagorno-Karabakh war between Armenia and Azerbaijan – quelled almost immediately due to Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s prompt peacemaking efforts, resulting in renewed truce. This attempt aimed at destabilizing both Armenia and Azerbaijan, and at creating an additional rift between Russia and Armenia. Further, it was designed to push Azerbaijan away from Russia and closer to Turkey and radical Islamism.
And what an interesting coincidence! The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict escalation happened DURING the visit of both heads of Armenia and Azerbaijan to the USA, where they attended Nuclear Summit hosted by Barack Obama!
Incidentally, did you know that 160,000 Armenians reside in Los Angeles, USA (the largest Armenian enclave in North America) and that George Clooney is Armenian?

Due to the hot news from Kazakhstan and other EAEU/post-Soviet areas,
I am releasing a new surprise Earth Shift Report 9!
6/11/2016 update: IT’S HERE! CLICK LINK TO WATCH NOW!
(PLUS! Color revolutions & destabilization alerts for Caucasus & Central Asia: intel from Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan)
Everything you ever wanted to know about the color revolution attempt in Astana, Almaty and other Kazakh cities on May 21, 2016. I’ve dubbed this attempted Kazakh Maidan: ‘The Agricultural Color Revolution.’ Find out why and how China is involved, but most importantly, how Ukraine, Turkey, ISIS, Soros, NGOs and US are involved.
We will also talk about the latest Aktobe terror attacks on June 5, 2016 and why specifically Aktobe was targeted. Who and why is sending a chilling message? Who’s pulling the strings and who’s the REAL target? How all this affects Russia and EAEU?
Kazakhstan is still on high alert and many shops and other organizations remain closed after the shocking attacks of June 5 in this country, previously considered one of the world’s most stable.
As usual, we’ll look at both: on the ground, local Kazakh intel, and the all-Eurasian and global situation.
For the first time in this report I will reveal certain crucial things about Russia and Kazakhstan’s role in Eurasia. This is brand new material, which is part of my EARTH SHIFT Theory, and of which I’ve never talked previously!
All this will give you the complete picture of what’s really going on!
The report contains a number of eye-witness videos straight from the source, interactive maps and pics and lots of rare intel, complete with my analysis. Lots of goodies in this one!
This is the surprise part: the format of this report is new, different and quite fresh. I think you’ll enjoy it very much. But you’ll have to see for yourself!
Watch now on LadaRay.info!

Due to so many events happening at once, I’m trying something a little different: Briefly-Important. In this format, I have grouped several developments based on their geography. This one is about Asia-Eurasia.
The BIG EVENT the West is silent about: Foiled Color Revolution in Kazakhstan on My 21!
Some might say: big deal, after all, what’s Kazakhstan? Much like Ukraine, Kazakhstan isn’t important by itself, but it is extremely important in connection with Russia and as part of the Russian support system. As we have discussed before (more on that in future Earth Shift Reports), Russia is The Great Global Balancer & Stabilizer. Therefore, we must analyze everything that happens around Russia from this perspective. This means that attack on Kazakhstan is an attack on Russia.
While we all relaxed for the weekend, a full-scale color revolution against Nazarbayev was planned in Kazakhstan for May 21. Mass protests were pre-announced for May 20-21, weapons, subversive literature, money and alcohol were hidden in capital Astana and several major cities, where the explosion was supposed to happen simultaneously. A media and PR attack was prepared. Foreign fingerprints are very vivid. Soros, Endowment for Democracy and other US NGOs are implicated. Ukraine right sector’s hand was also in it.
The investigation is ongoing and arrests have been made.
I warned about this possibility in ESR1 reloaded: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? IS ASTANA, KZ, A NEW NWO CAPITAL? In it I explained the reasons Nazarbayev had premature presidential elections, as well as why Belarus’ Lukashenko is acting so strangely.
A similarly volatile situation is developing along the entire perimeter of the Russian borders, especially all over Central Asia and Caucasus (of which I also warned since 2014). Russia and those Central Asian/Caucasus ex-Soviet republics that have joined, or are planning to join Eurasian Union, are bracing for the rolling color revolution avalanche. Recent events in Armenia and in Nagorno-Karabakh (between Azerbaijan and Armenia) were also manifestation of the same. The fires were extinguished due to a prompt interference by Russia. Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are balancing on the brink. All this will intensify as more post-Soviet counties choose to get closer to Russia and/or join Eurasian Union.
There is another important reason the US is greatly intensifying its push for color revolutions. The reason is related to the TTIP and TPP push.
We’ll discuss all these past, present and future developments in a very important Earth Shift Report addressing Eurasia and Eurasian Union. Please stay tuned!
Russia-ASEAN Sochi Forum & Trade with Eurasian Union
Russia-ASEAN forum has recently ended in Sochi. The 12 countries, members of ASEAN, all were represented. ASEAN unites the countries of South-East Asia. In part this organization is economic and in part political. It’s interesting that in some part (off the books, of course), the member-countries have resolved to ‘be friends against China.’ See the list of the ASEAN member states.
Now, the most interesting part starts here. While being wary of China, ASEAN wants to be friends with Russia for so many reasons… During Sochi Summit, each ASEAN head of state had an audience with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Even more interesting: each of the heads of state complained of absolutely unprecedented pressure they experienced from the US not to come to Sochi. Yet everyone chose to come.
During both ASEAN and Japan events (read about PM Abe visit below), Russia struck a large number of business deals. Russian relations with ASEAN countries, such as Vietnam and Thailand, were traditionally good and productive. The result of this Russia-ASEAN summit in Sochi is that now ASEAN as the South-East Asia union will begin trading with Eurasian Union, leaders of which were also present at the summit.
The most interesting thing is that ASEAN and TPP partially overlap.
I’ll talk about the meaning and prospects of TPP in an upcoming surprise Earth Shift Report. We’ll also discuss why some countries hedge their bets and join TPP, while simultaneously trying to develop preferential trade relations with Russia. Where does this leave TPP and US?
Japanese PM Abe meets with Putin; is there hope for Russia-Japan relations?
Just before the Sochi Forum, also in May, Japanese PM Abe visited Moscow to meet with Putin. He complained of the same relentless pressure by the US not to come to Russia.
The result of the Abe-Putin negotiations also send a positive signal. Japan is trying to distance itself from the US, showing some level of independence. While it’s very, very far to some sort of normalcy in Russian-Japanese relations, the desire to put some distance from the US may push Japan closer to Russia.
I was asked whether this would happen soon.
It depends on the time perspective. I wouldn’t hold my breath for too much of a miracle for the next few years. The animosity towards Russia is too deeply ingrained in Japan. I hear that some Japanese are so far off that they even believe that Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombs were dropped by Russia! While of course everyone should know they were dropped by the US, unnecessarily to boot. How would you even begin re-training these people to think differently? I am not too optimistic about Japan, to be honest, although of course I am always for dialogue. The more dialogue the better of a chance to avoid wars and misunderstandings.
That said, Japanese investors and businesses will continue being active in Russia. New trade deals were signed in Moscow between Abe and Putin; Japanese investors are very eager to invest in Russia, trying to get their foot in the door while they can, for as long as the EU self-withdrew due to sanctions. ll this is a given.
A slow and gradual improvement of political relations will definitely follow, simply because doing business when the countries are at a standoff is very inconvenient.
However, we should never underestimate the wild factor of the US. As its economy and global reputation falters, US will become more and more aggressive in trying to keep its allies away from Russia, and artificially tethered to Uncle Sam. This is a recipe for color revolutions, regime change and sabotage. Sometimes they will temporarily succeed, slowing down the natural process (look at Obama’s appeasement attempt during his visit to Japan right after Abe met with Putin in Moscow).
But much worse things than an appeasement visit can happen to a rebelling vassal.
Remember Fukushima? When I talk about the deliberate attempt to poison all of our planet’s treasured and delicate oceans, kill marine life, dolphins and whales, I am not in the mood to choose my words. Those who are ready to kill all this to get their way with a country they want to punish are monsters and deserve everything that’s coming to them! As we discussed so many times before, we are dealing here with underdeveloped 5-year-olds with nukes and capacity to cause harm to others way beyond what they should possess.
Consequently, for now I am very lukewarm optimistic-to-neutral about Japan-Russia relations.
THIS IS A DEVELOPING GLOBAL TREND!
(See other trends: TRENDS & PREDICTIONS on LadaRay.info)
Japan, as many other countries at this time, will attempt to balance itself between not offending US too much, so not to be subjected to a new ‘natural’ catastrophe or a manufactured economic disaster, while simultaneously trying to develop better connections with Russia. The same is true for most Asian countries, as well as the EU (see my discussion of what’s going on in EU in following articles). The same trend is visible all over the globe.
This process will take time, but what is very important to understand is that every incremental step by Japan, and other US slaves, towards sovereignty, distancing from the US and re-balancing towards better relations with Russia, is slowly eroding the foundation of the waning US Empire and of the globalist grip on power.
Through these tiny, incremental steps we are observing the truly epic and historic process of re-balancing by the The Great Global Balancer of the human society on our planet (click on the link to read more).
You’ll be able to hear my detailed analysis and predictions re. EU, Japan, Asia, TTIP/TPP, and of course, Eurasian Union, in the upcoming surprise Earth Shift Reports!

Ask Lada 4. Color Revolutions: Who and why takes advantage of border disputes and historic resentments?
All posts in this series will appear under CATEGORY: Ask Lada
In response to my latest article Greferendum Domino Effect? Revolution Coming? The Future of Europe and Eurasia?
Ask Lada 4
This comment brings up many important issues and questions. I tried to respond as fully as possible, leaving some of the things implied. You can glean deeper into the issues by revisiting ESR 3: OLIGARCH WARS.
Some of these issues, such as mixing different nationalities in one large umbrella culture, are a norm for large unions. Look at the EU, or USA, for that matter. We were mixed in one country, therefore, we will resent that country forever, does sound awfully immature and silly, don’t you think? Humans are a very social species, they are supposed to interact with each other closely – and yes, mix.
That said, the USSR was absolutely meticulous in providing the platform for unheard-of self-expression to small cultures, which would have been suppressed, and probably disappear entirely, as part of any other country. USSR went as far as creating alphabets and writing systems where they didn’t exist, subsidising art and literature in national languages and having mandatory national language study in republics, whether students wanted it or not. For example, USSR created alphabet and writing systems for many small tribes of Siberia… and for Mongolia.
Yes, there was no writing system in Mongolia before 1920s. The land of the great conqueror Genghis Khan, who created a huge empire, subduing Russia, China and Persia – and no writing system? No monuments of any conquests built, just scattered illiterate nomadic tribes? No books commemorating and glorifying such conquests? No legends? Hard to believe, right? This is why there is a serious doubt such empire ever existed and the Mongol-Tatar yoke ever happened in Russia. History, as I said many times previously, was re-written.
As much as I am an internationalist, even I feel the USSR might have gone a little too far… Celebrating diversity and multi-culti was the USSR’s ‘cult’ of sorts. You thought US or EU invented political correctness? Absolutely not! It was the USSR all the way – the West just stole the idea. As a linguist and international relations analyst (a couple of many hats I wear) I can attest to this first hand.
When USSR fell apart, all this support of local cultures backfired on Russia, due to the violent and disgruntled super-nationalistic minorities within such cultures, and due to the well-known international forces that had one goal in mind: destruction of the Russian World to free up space for the global takeover.
That said, we do have a global resurgence of nationalism, religious extremism, militarism and fascism. This is the sign of this PERIOD 8, as I call it. Therefore, there is nothing extraordinary in the fact that tensions flare up in the former Soviet republics. It’s part of the period we live in.
Meanwhile, it has to be understood that these tensions will always emerge where the weakest links reside. By seeing where tensions flare up, we know where the weakest links are. They are historically known, these weak links. Caucasus, Balkans, Middle East – no surprises. Ukraine and Moldova should have been expected too.
Paul, I don’t think I ever said it was some bad people who gave out cookies on maidan that caused the Ukraine coup. The ‘bad, cookie-wielding people from across the big pond’ simply used the situation skillfully to their advantage. Said another way: there is an old CIA/MI6 playbook: How to create color revolutions. It is the opinion of some very good analysts that this playbook hasn’t changed (it was only perfected) since the beginning of the 20th century. Why change what works wonders?
That’s how all these color revolutions we have observed, were created. Be it France to unseat De Gaulle, or Hungary in 1956, or Georgia, or Egypt, or Serbia, or Ukraine… It’s the same exact playbook. That’s why it was so easy to predict from the start that there would be cookies on Kiev maidan (or lavash, as in Armenia) and mysterious snipers, and innocent victims promoted all over Western MSM.
What this playbook targets is this: it capitalizes on the deep-seated resentments and anger of the volatile and immature part of the population. Extreme nationalism is part of the resentment and dissatisfaction due to the collapsing standard of living. This is why there was no nationalism in the USSR – the majority lived reasonably free (yes, free – in a sense of personal freedom to be yourself and live according to your tradition), was reasonably satisfied and well-occupied. There will be more about that in my upcoming video: Brezhnev’s Passport: Who Really Ruled the USSR.
The movements to change things and the local power grabs began only after Gorbachev destroyed the structure that worked. Gorby’s intention may have been to reform and rebuild on the new level, however, in his naiveté he had no idea who and what he was dealing with internationally. You can’t try to negotiate in good faith, you can’t try to build cooperative relations with those countries that have one exclusive goal: to destroy your country. This is why most Russians consider Gorbachev a traitor and criminal. However, I think this is too simplified of a view. He genuinely thought he was building a new, cooperative world with the West – the world without confrontation. But along the way, he and his wife fell for the trappings of Western materialism, aka, very subtle bribes.
The urge to build a world without confrontation is one of the quantum predetermined, genetically embedded characteristics of the Russian people. It stems from the fact that Russia serves as The Great Planetary Balancer (see PREDICTIONS). This is why Gorby behaved that way, this is why Stalin didn’t believe Hitler would attack the USSR, this is why Putin is doing everything to prevent the big war.
Nationalistic element is always present in the background of any society. But color revolutions are only possible when there is a lot of dissatisfaction with individual’s life due to high unemployment, lack of certain freedoms, enclosed society with lack of prospects and poverty. Dissatisfaction with one’s lot in life and lowly anger and jealousy towards someone who is doing better is then channeled in a specific way.
The more ignorant and brainwashed the population – the easier it is to do so.
Students, and generally young people, are always those who serve as main cannon fodder for carrying out color revolutions.
There is a number of reasons for that: young people often feel their parents didn’t do a good job and want change at any cost, however poorly thought out; students congregate in colleges and can be brainwashed easier together, after which they can be manipulated in a certain way; certain arrogance, lack of wisdom and ignorance of youth that makes them think they know everything; preponderance of fire (physically aggressive) energy that doesn’t find satisfactory outlet in productive activities – and gets directed towards destruction; higher unemployment and much extra time among youths; low wages and need for money, making it especially easy to buy young people.
‘The big Armenian area is next to Georgia’. Nope, the Armenian-populated area called Nagorny Karabakh is between Armenia and Azerbaijan. There is an ongoing conflict between the two, both considering Nagorny Karabakh their own for different reasons. Meanwhile, Karabakh is in the position of Donbass and Pridnestrovie. The conflict continues flaring up periodically, kept in check by the UN-mandated Russian peacekeepers stationed there. Nagorny Karabakh leans towards Armenia.
The real resolution of this issue will only be possible when both Armenia and Azerbaijan become parts of the new Eurasian Union. This is why various forces in Azerbaijan and out will do everything to prevent this from happening.
My prediction: it will eventually happen anyway.
South Ossetia and Abkhazia were former autonomies within the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic, attached to Georgia by Stalin. They seceded de-facto as soon as the USSR fell apart. You have probably read my extensive article about the 2008 Georgia/S. Ossetia war, where I talk about all that.
Presently, both S. Ossetia and Abkhazia are slowly integrating into the Russian Federation, first unofficially. Populations of both unrecognized republics wanted to do it right away, feeling rightly that only Russia can provide them with protection, but are forced to live in a limbo for a while, due to resistance from Georgia and the West.
It’s not the first time small cultures want Russia to protect them. Armenia was once in this situation; Georgia once begged for Russian protection against Persia and Osmanic Empire, and acceptance into the Russian Empire – and look how diligently now they try to force their neighbors in S. Ossetia and Abkhazia into oppression; Ukraine once begged to be accepted into the Russian Empire, same with Finland, as discussed in previous article. How interesting that when the shoe is on another foot, those who were oppressed and begged for help in the past, now happily become the oppressors and bullies!
A very similar to S. Ossetia/Abkhazia situation exists with Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia (Moldova), but it’s complicated by the fact that the latter have no borders with Russia. Of course, the worst of conflict exists between Donbass and Ukraine.
Prediction: All these territories and former republics will need to learn to balance their own nationalistic interests with living and functioning cooperatively within a large union. As a matter of fact, we are in the period when everyone on the planet is learning to balance personal needs with those of the global society. Humans are now learning to balance their national needs and preferences with the needs and demands of the entire continent, union, or federation to which they belong.
A balance of rights and obligations is key. In all this Russia is playing the crucial role as the The Great Planetary Balancer.
Going deeper: balancing personal with the needs of all.
Does Russia owe or is Russia owed?
Paul, my personal view on all these ‘betrayal resentments’ is probably known to you. I will reiterate.
We all have personal history of some sort. You probably heard me say that I had relatives on both sides of the Russian Revolution and Civil War – Reds and Whites – some of whom lost fortunes fighting against the Bolsheviks, and others did well in the USSR. I write about such set up in GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure), partly based on my family history.
In 1991, I would be one of those who got stranded in Ukraine, just like my sister and her family, if I didn’t know to emigrate before it happened. My sister had a hard time in Nikolaev, a typical Russian city tragically stuck in Ukraine’s backyard. Nikolaev, same as Odessa, Donbass and Crimea, was and continues being neglected and humiliated by Ukraine authorities and ‘real Ukrainians,’ aka, ukro-nazis.
There is so much more to my personal story, such as: how at least one member of my extended family was touched by Stalin’s repressions and how many members of my family were lost to the Great War.
Point is: we can make personal dramas out of everything and anything in life, brewing in our own misery and resentments, thinking someone OWES us the world, while we owe nothing back, and forgetting how much that country – Russia/USSR – gave us. One of the best educations; amazing culture and art, including books, movies, theater, sport, dance, songs; tons of freedom to develop and grow; completely safe, crime-free, natural environment; peaceful and nice, non-stressful atmosphere, where it was easy to breathe.
The rest is up to us: we have the inner power to make a life for ourselves we desire. And yes, sometimes it’s hard.
My sister and her family moved to Moscow the first chance they got in the ’90s. At first, they were considered illegal aliens, having only Ukrainian passports, while ethnically being Russian. Was it unfair and humiliating? You bet. But they had no resentments – they just kept their heads down and worked out all the bureaucracy issues, obtaining work permits, passports, establishing families in Moscow. My nieces can’t think of a better place to be. Same goes for many other people I knew in the USA, who first emigrated, but later returned to Russia, and who now live happily in Moscow or elsewhere in Russia. The list includes some very close relatives and friends.
To that I could add that those people I know from various countries who bought some nice vacation properties in Odessa, are now having a problem getting into Ukraine to visit their property, as transportation between Russia and Ukraine is shut. Moreover, real estate in Odessa fell precipitously after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup and the May 2 burning on Kulikovo Polie. They can’t sell their properties either.
I chose to live in the West at the time because of my career and family situation. As far as I am concerned, Russia has been doing soooo much for the world, without getting nearly enough in return. I personally feel I owe Russia everything, while Russia owes me nothing. This is why I write and speak up about the truth concerning Russia, asking for absolutely nothing in return from Russia. Someone has to explain all this to the people in the West.
I know you read my Earth Shift Report: OLIGARCH WARS, where I built an extensive case around psychological resentments and abandonment issues on the part of Ukrainians and other former republics after the collapse of the USSR. While this resentment exists, it’s incredibly childish and un-evolved. Humans are a very funny species. We can create resentments out of thin air and brew in such self-righteous resentments and anger for generations. Humans love blaming someone else for their problems, don’t they? It’s so much easier than taking responsibility for own actions.
This myopic tunnel vision, where some un-evolved souls see only their small point of view and are unable to expand their horizons, is one of the tragedies of mankind in general. This is how wars start and countries fall.
It’s easy enough to know if there is a legitimate concern and truth behind any such resentments and color revolutions, or is this an induced from abroad whim of a small, aggressive minority. Use my Quantum Calibrations of Consciousness System, as described in my videos. The scale is based in part on Dr. David Hawkins ‘Power vs Force’ Scale of Consciousness, but going much further. See videos here:
(An illustration of how calibrations work, with telling examples, to be posted soon as a new article! Stay tuned!)
The wise and evolved humans get over anything life throws at them, make peace with the past, and make a good life for themselves, while also keeping the warm feelings towards their Greater Motherland. This is what a majority both inside and outside of Russia/former USSR is doing. Talking about how one felt betrayed for 23 years, blah, blah, is just sensationalistic and encourages lowly emotions and usurious behavior. While it’s very human, it’s also very American (I mean sensationalism and creating noise in the MSM about someone’s private complaints, as if they were gospel). For all these reasons I feel no sympathy for anyone who whines how they were betrayed by Russia. Time to get over it.
Russia owes them nothing, but they owe Russia a lot. One of the things they owe is to stop being the sheeple and reclaim their power, build a good life for themselves and put an effort to create the country(ies) they want their children to grow up in. Then, everything will start magically falling into place.
Here is an example of how this can be done. Just last week we saw how the attempted ‘electric maidan’ color revolution in Armenia failed because people understood what mess Ukrainians made out of their maidan, and refused to be someone’s guinea pigs.
As John Kennedy, US president many Americans tend to respect, said: “Think not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
Another American whom I personally respect, called Mohammad Ali, once said that we have to pay the rent for living on our planet. We take a lot from our Mother Earth, and we owe her back. Same with Mother Russia.
To answer your question: no, it was impossible to straighten out all conflicts and rectify borders on the post-Soviet space. It’s naive to think that centuries-old inter-tribal historic conflicts with unclear and fluid borders for generations, could just be assigned in a straight line on moment’s notice. This is how UK and other colonial powers did it in Africa and America. India and Pakistan were also divided this way, clashes between them ongoing till recently, as a parting gift from the disintegrating British Empire. Stalin, Lenin and Khrushchev did some of that experimentation too, resulting in big problems later. The Middle East has seen some crazy redrawing of borders, resulting now in terrible inter-cultural conflicts.
In Yeltsin’s defence, not only he had the volatile situation in Russia to deal with, but he also naively thought that the USSR would be re-build on different principles soon. Therefore, he didn’t worry about borders too much. It didn’t occur to him that local feudal/nationalistic/oligarchic interests would take over almost immediately, aided by foreign powers who craved the Russian World’s resources and destruction. Again, in his defence: he was born and lived his whole life in the USSR, where all these things were alien.
While USSR was strong and stable, any inter-tribal conflicts were kept very successfully in check by virtue of mutual trade and unifying Russian culture. If there were national security considerations, borders could be redrawn (right or wrong). This especially concerns Caucasus, Moldova and Ukraine. Once the USSR was gone, these old conflicts flared up again.
Border settlement and rectification would be absurd and couldn’t happen in principle on moment’s notice when the country was already disintegrating. It often takes centuries to settle border disputes, and they still keep brewing unless a lasting compromise can be found, such as a large umbrella union. Unions serve as containment factors for border disputes.
France and Germany settled some of their border disputes only after EU was formed. That’s actually why some glorify EU as a means of bringing lasting peace to the European continent for the first time in millennia. There is some truth to that; EU did that – but only before it succumbed to the dark agenda of the NWO and Transatlantists. Let’s recall that both world wars have started in Europe and it’s understandable that EU citizens want to avoid a repeat of the same at any cost.
Also look at Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, India and Pakistan and their long-brewing border disputes.
Prediction: the ongoing border disputes between India, China, Pakistan, Vietnam, etc., will be put to rest as all these countries join SCO, Eurasian Union and the New Silk Road project. The BRICS already helped smooth out the long-brewing border dispute between India and China. Russia in all this, just like in the past, has been acting as that glue that helps keep peace and deflects conflicts. This is part of Russia’s global role as The Great Planetary Balancer.
Prediction: In addition to all the above, and most importantly, most former Soviet republics (including Ukraine and the Baltics) either never were successful independent states, or never were independent states within bloated borders they had as Soviet republics. In OLIGARCH WARS (and my various articles) I described how borders were given to republics based on political expediency at the time. Unfortunately, later, these republics refused to release territories they were assigned for the purposes of the USSR, now considering them their own.
Due to the fact that it was Yeltsin in power at the time, there was no one to address these complex issues. The existing legal system was torn out with its roots in the ’90s. The new legal structure, both in Russia and Eurasia is only now being re-built. There is still a lot to do. The mess created by the split wouldn’t have been possible to clean up quickly by the wisest person alive at the time.
It’s only possible now and it is being done – by Putin and his team. It will be a very slow and careful process so not to create a new mess. It has to be done right, based on principles of equity and taking into account interests of many newly emerged little countries, but without giving away any of the Russian interests and power.
The issue of borders among former Soviet republics will be settled by mid-2020. It will only be possible, yet again, as part of Eurasian Union and other Eurasian organizations. The alternative is perma-conflict. There is no other way.
By mid-2020, the world will look very different, some countries will be called differently, and borders will be different, too.
