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.

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

THESE ARE EXTENSIVE EXCERPTS & OVERVIEW!

READ FULL ARTICLE ON PATREON!

____________

 

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.

I spoke extensively about those two attempts in
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN (and Armenia):
WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION?

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!

Masks Off: Super-Bully of the World US Threatens Germany and Russia over Nord Stream-2

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:

US threatens to punish Russia & Germany if they continue playing with gas

Putin greets Merkel with flowers: “Political Disagreements and Economic Projects Should Be Kept Separate”

 

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.

Moldova Elections: US Will Do Everything to Keep Anti-Russian Government

Moldova elections

Later in October 2016 Moldova will be voting for a new president. The confident leader of the presidential race is Igor Dodon, whose party stands for integration with Russia and Moldova’s membership in the Customs Union (as they still call it in Moldova – in reality it’s now Eurasian Union). Preliminary polls give Dodon 38.3% of votes. Very distant second and third are two pro-EU, or better described as pro-Romania-absorption and anti-Moldavia-sovereignty, parties with 13% and 12.5% respectively.

People are very unhappy with the government and mass protests have never stopped since 2014, when it was first discovered that government stole $1bln from the coffers and laundered it abroad. However, the present government is propped up by the US and Romania, who continue indicating they’ll do anything to keep it in power. The main reason they are so keen on keeping outright thieves in power is the same as always: they are anti-Russian.

A brief report about Moldova elections and protests, by RT (Rus)

How Dodon was swindled out of his previous victory:

I wrote about history, today’s reality and prospects of Moldova and nearby Pridnestrovie, as well as the political conundrum prevalent in those parts, in several past articles on FT. The entire spread is described in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. I also did an educational video report on Moldova and Pridnestrovie. Links to these are at the bottom of this post.

Pro-Russian Dodon’s Party of the Socialists won previous parliament elections, but was swindled out of its win via a formation of a pro-West coalition. The situation was complicated by the fact that anti-Russian parties, financed by Romania, US and EU, ganged up on Dodon. Another complication was, and continues being, that the pro-Moldova sovereignty and pro-Russia forces are fractured. Further and wider rift among those forces was successfully generated by pro-West and oligarchic forces through paid agents and through CIA intervention. Honestly, the whole story reads like a thriller (and you can read it in ESR8 below).

Old right vs. left stigma – Lada Ray sound advice for those who want to hear it!

Incidentally, I notice that many still operate under the old stigma wherein the world is divided on ‘left’ vs. ‘right.’ Within this stigma a label, such as ‘left’ vs. ‘right’, socialist vs. conservative reign supreme.

I strongly recommend those who still hold this stigma to drop it, in order to avoid much disappointment and confusion in the future. Those were 20th century constructs, and much of what they used to describe doesn’t work any more. These are really constructs designed to lure in the gullible dupes and keep them within a matrix of false reality.

If a very conservative Trump is pro-Russia, if Hungarian right-winger Orban and French right-winger Marine Le Pen are pro-Russian too, how do you reconcile that with the fact that the left-wing German Die Linke and Greek Syriza are equally pro-Russian? How do you explain such phenomenon under the outdated left vs. right stigma? Or take the only honest Ukrainian politician left Natalia Vitrenko, leader of the banned Progressive Socialist Party, of whom I wrote in the previous post.

At the same time, how do you explain the supposed ‘liberals’, whom some silly confused dupes even call ‘communists,’ Obama and Hillary Clinton, being rabidly Russophobic?

Here’s the truth, of which I wrote previously:

1. Old stereotypes don’t work any more – throw them out!

2. Each country is very different in how they consider someone left-wing or right-wing and each country’s politics and politicians need to be taken on their own merits.

3. Most importantly, forget the outdated political labels! The new criteria are: what does this or that party or individual think about Russia, Eurasian Union, China, NATO, US aggression and sole super-power status, to name a few.

My advice, don’t go by old stereotypes and what someone wrote in some book. Go by what a party or individual really stand for. Otherwise, you’ll always be behind the curve.

Back to Moldova:

Last year, Victoria Nuland predictably left her visible trace when during a secret night meeting in Romania she and Romanian top brass picked the new Prime Minister of Moldova, who was then illegally approved under the cover of the night by the Kishinev marionettes. When the population found out about that scheme, the country became engulfed in mass protests.

Couple that with the fact that several months prior, $1 billion – 5th of this poor and tiny country’s budget – was stolen and laundered offshore by powers that be. The country of 3mln+ citizens is bleeding not only money, but also population. At least 700,000, possibly up to a million, Moldavians work and live in Russia; plus 300,000 in Romania and EU. Essentially, half of the country prefers, or has no choice but, to live abroad to make ends meet. Many in this poor country still make only $5 a day.

These presidential elections will be equally divisive. Pro-EU parties continue pushing for euro-integration at all cost. Romania wants to swallow Moldova’s territory very badly, and it doesn’t care about consequences. US supports Romania’s aggressive ambitions because there is one overriding goal US has in this region: create as much turmoil as possible in the Black Sea region, which will continue destabilizing the fringes of EU and Russia.

No, make that two goals! Another one is the oldest in the book: weaken and destroy Russia.

Of course, just like in the case of neighboring Ukraine, neither US nor Romania think of the people. IF Romanian annexation of Moldova ever went through, this would mean a civil war, much worse than the civil war in Donbass. Parts of Moldova will secede for sure. But while US can hide out from this war behind the big pond, Romania is right there. The foolish Romania would be hit by this civil war much stronger than it realizes.

Presently, as I predicted in my past Moldova writings, the country manages to balance in a relative equilibrium of forces. Moldova is currently a smaller and more peaceful reflection of Ukraine. In 1990-92 there was a brutal civil war, when joint Romanian-Kishinev forces attacked the breakaway Pridnestrovie. After Russian UN-mandated intervention and warning, the war was stopped and the lesson was seemingly learned. As a result, the overall distribution of forces in present day Moldova is healthier than in present day Ukraine.

My past predictions about Moldova are materializing:

As predicted since 2014, a relative uneasy equilibrium exists now between pro-Russian and anti-Russian forces. I previously said that this uneasy equilibrium will continue at least till 2016-17, possibly until 2018.

All about the real history of Moldova, Romania and Pridnestrovie, Moldova elections, mass protests, how $1 bln, or 1/5th of Moldova’s budget, was stolen from the banks, how Nuland was secretly appointing the country’s PM (remember how she was appointing Ukraine PM in 2014?), and much, much more… Read:

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.

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.

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.

Lada Ray Analysis: Brazil senate impeaches Dilma Rousseff; Plus Eurasia Breaking News

dilma impeachment

It happened exactly as predicted in Brazil Color Revolution: Lada Ray Report & Predictions!

Once they’ve got her, they won’t let her go!

Brazil senate’s clear majority voted to impeach President Dilma Rousseff, removing her from power. The pro-US right-wing Michel Temer will serve the rest of her term as president till 2018. RT video link.

US analysts tout Brazil as ‘vibrant democracy.’ I see it just a tiny bit differently: Dilma Rousseff, president voted into power by 54 million Brazilians, has been removed from power by 81 senators. This is a slow and incidiously quiet state coup, which has nothing to do with democracy (read full analysis in the report linked above).

 There are many parallels with Ukraine and the 2014 coup. Albeit, Brazilian coup is so far a great deal more peaceful.

Meanwhile, who are the judges? 60% of Brazil senate members and lawmakers are under investigation for corruption.

Will Brazilian people wake up and protest? Is anti-color revolution possible?

They will probably protest, and perhaps even vigorously. Alas, it’s a little late. They’d missed their best chance, which they had when the whole thing began. Incidentally, the same way as Ukrainians missed their chance to nip the Kiev coup in the bud in 2014.

It’s too late to revert back to the past. At this point, the country will have to go through a full cycle of learning from its mistakes. Dilma may have another chance in 2018, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. US and pro-US forces had worked years on orchestrating this coup. Once they got power into their hands, they won’t let it go that easily. It’ll take years for Brazil to redefine itself and reshape its economy, finances, social relations. I can only hope that after vigorous soul-searching Brazil will come out of this crisis a winner.

However, for the next few years I expect Brazil to be one huge mess (this is for those clients who have asked me if it was a good idea to move to Brazil).

For full analysis I strongly recommend my original report: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report & Predictions

EURASIA BREAKING NEWS!

From Armenia

While all this is happening in Brazil, on the opposite side of the planet, in Armenia, a new color revolution is brewing. This has been in the making for years, especially intensified since Armenia joined Eurasian Union. I’d warned about it since 2014. The details and proof have emerged of a deep and hands-on involvement of the US State Dept and CIA in the destabilization of Armenia. The info has been released by the Association of Armenians Abroad. The organization warns Armenian government that it’s on collision course with repeating a Ukraine scenario.

I discuss in detail the 5 Armenia color revolution attempts in the past 2 years and who’s behind them in my recent:

VIDEO ESR9 

ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN: WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION?

Check it out if you haven’t yet!

The new multiple material proof of the close involvement of the US in the color revolution attempts in Armenia is pretty damning. I’ll make an effort to translate and release that material soon.

From Donetsk, DNR (DPR)

A similar disclosure regarding US activity in Donbass has been made by a different source. This disclosure is about an arm of USAID and UKAID (UK arm), an NGO called ‘People in Need.’ This organization recently asked for license to ‘help people of Donbass.’ Donetsk/DNR authorities authorised their permit. The independent investigators have discovered that ‘People in Need’ has been involved in subversive activity and anti-Russian propaganda in several countries, including Czechia, Ukraine and Russia. Under the guise of humanitarian help in Donetsk and vicinity, they recruit anti-Russian propagandists, internet trolls/shills and sleeper terrorist cells.

Stay tuned for the follow up on these breaking stories!

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Many have asked me when I’ll release my next Earth Shift Report

THE CRIMEA FACTOR

The report is coming to you soon. I intend to take several days off writing for FT to finish it and release it. I’ll still be around to approve your FT comments.

I’ve also promised some articles in response to reader questions. I haven’t forgotten and I’ll try to release them throughout this month as a window of free time appears.

Please stay tuned as more’s coming your way!

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:

TAGS: #Armenia #Maidan #Yerevan #colorrevolution #CIA #Russia #EAEU #EurasianUnion

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!

Deadly Extremist Attack in Almaty, Kazakhstan

This is the continuation of attacks in Kazakhstan, which we discussed in Earth Shift Report 9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN. WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION? 

On July 17, 2016 armed group of extremists attacked the city center and police station in Almaty. Per reports, 4 policemen are dead.

In Earth Shift Report 9 you’ve watched my video compilation for the previous attacks in Aktobe earlier in June and the attempted color revolution in May. The compilation was composed of raw amateur videos shot by various citizens and then uploaded on YouTube. This new compilation is similar.

The new events confirm that the attempts to destabilize Kazakhstan – one of the important support elements of the Eurasian/global rebalancing system and the support system for Russia, the Global Balancer – will continue.

HEADS UP!

Lots and lots of earth-shattering events are brewing in the world, as we speak. All these are a part of the GREAT EARTH SHIFT.

Such times of a major tectonic shift are always shocking, fast-changing and not always easy to stomach. This is why I put out information on FuturisTrendcast for free. My hope is that it will help all my readers orient themselves in a sea of shifting reality and confusing, upsetting and contradictory events. I hope both my articles/videos and Earth Shift Reports will help bring clarity, understanding and strength to you all in these turbulent and important times!

Many people asked me if I’ll be explaining the dynamics and who is behind the latest attempted military coup in Turkey. Also, I am getting questions regarding Rio Olympics and the possibility of the Russian team’s ban, as well as the mass All-Ukraine Krestniy Khod (pilgrimage) for Peace in Donbass, taking place in Ukraine.

Erdogan and Turkish military coup: YES, I will talk about who is really behind it and the coup’s peculiar (not by accident!) timing. This revealing report is coming soon!

All-Ukraine Krestniy Khod (pilgrimage) for Peace in Donbass: a beautiful and heroic event – very much needed, which is completely ignored in the West. Tens of thousands of people walk on foot across Ukraine from both west and east to converge in Kiev, despite their lives being threatened by ukro-nazis and Kiev junta. While all this goes on – guess what! The West is completely silent, which only means one thing: it is complicit. I have a tight schedule, but I’ll try to have a comprehensive post about this important event around July 27-28, when it’s scheduled to converge in Kiev.

Last but not least:

New Earth Shift Reports coming!

I’m preparing two new EARTH SHIFT REPORTS. Many of you have listened to my latest ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU, which was recorded before the Brexit referendum. Many predictions I made in the report, as related to Brexit, began materializing almost immediately, and they continue developing with astonishing accuracy. In this regard, I have a new ESR in the works: BREXIT AFTERMATH.

Second upcoming Earth Shift Report is the one I promised you all: NATO AT THE GATE & SECRET RUSSIAN WEAPON.

More info on both reports soon!

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.

moscow-riverdancing-in-alexander-gardens-2

novodevichy-6

(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.

HOW LADA RAY’S EARTH SHIFT REPORT WORKS + NEW ESR9 DETAILS!

ESR BANNER

Dear readers & fans

A few days ago I’ve released my newest comprehensive video Earth Shift Report 9: 

ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN: WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION? 

In case you are new to FuturisTrendcast and to Earth Shift Report, or if you’d like a review,

please allow me to share a few important details and updates!

This is direct link to the main EARTH SHIFT REPORT page!

Here is how Earth Shift Report works:

Lada Ray’s Earth Shift Reports are supported exclusively by reader donations. Your donation will be used to continue delivering FREE content on FuturisTrendcastLadaRay.info and YT, on site/blog security, and to purchase recording equipment for Lada Ray YT channel.

Click on each report banner on the general Earth Shift Report page or on LadaRay.info home page to donate and read or watch!

As of today, there are 9 published Earth Shift Reports. Most of the 9 reports are written, complete with maps and pics to fully illustrate the point. Sometimes throughout the report included also are additional supporting videos (oftentimes they are in Russian or in other language, with my translation). I know my readers love the written format. However, the video documentary format often offers more visual interest and flexibility.

Two of the reports are video-based:

ESR9 BANNER

New ESR9 format:

While new for Earth Shift Report, ESR9 format is much like the style of my free video reports on Lada Ray YT channel. It’s pretty straightforward and includes my narrated analytics, intel and predictions, plus, as usual, maps, pics and images, helping me illustrate my point in a dynamic, more interactive than reading, format. You have the flexibility of watching videos accompanied by images, or simply listening to audio.

These are ESR9 stats:

FULL VIDEO REPORT LENGTH: 3 hours 6 minutes. 
This one of a kind comprehensive video report includes narrated analysis and hot intel by Lada Ray, complete with supporting mini-documentaries, pics and maps.
For your viewing and bookmarking convenience and so you could easily return to it any time you wanted, Lada Ray’s narrated video report has been divided by topic into 6 self-containing segments, ranging in length between 16 and 46 minutes. Included also are 2 mini-documentaries (7 and 13 min in length). 

Earth Shift Reports are Copyright Lada Ray. The videos are hosted by Vimeo and password protected. 

NOTE: while the report length is substantial, it is rather easy to listen to. My style is informative and engaging. I guarantee this report will open your eyes to knowledge you’ve never known, and perhaps, you’ll even get entertained in the process. Besides, as mentioned above, the videos are divided into smaller segments for your convenience. You can always watch incrementally, by topic. Just bookmark the report page and return to it later. Should you forget how, you can always email us using private contact form and we will happily connect you with the right link!

I received a question as to how Vimeo works and why I use it for video hosting. In case any of you have the same question, here is what I replied:

‘Vimeo is an alternative to YouTube with customized, secure and private features for video hosting. I began using it for Earth Shift Reports due to the fact that ESR4 was stolen from YT and illegally distributed; I had to file copyright violation claims, etc.

Have you been able to watch ESR9 videos yet? It’s super-easy! Once you’ve donated, you’ll be directed to the report page, as usual (see details on how it works on ESR9 donation page). Once inside the report page, all you have to do is cut and paste password provided onto each video (where it says ‘password required’) and click on video (as you’d usually do on YT) to watch right there on the ESR9 report page! We have full screen option for your viewing pleasure!

As to my two mini-documentaries included with the report – just click on each screen – no password needed for those!

FULL INSTRUCTIONS ARE PROVIDED ON THE REPORT PAGE!

There are other countries that may do something similar.

We intend to keep PayPal because we find it so very convenient for most countries’ transactions (and remember, in many countries you usually don’t need a PayPal account!).

But for those who cannot do it through PayPal for whatever reason, we are currently looking into secure and reputable alternatives! I’ll admit, I’ve been asked by many fans and readers to set up Bitcoin button for my Earth Shift Reports and Consultations, but – sorry to say – was too lazy to get it done; and then there are these pesky little things we usually call ‘life.’

I solemnly promise that this time I’ll take it seriously. We are looking into setting up the Bitcoin payment alternative, as well as other potential alternatives (such as Qiwi, which is an international Russian service: Wikipedia) for all ESRs and Consultations.

To the above list, soon we also plan to add our new SHOP & Lada Ray online WORKSHOPS. All that will be posted on LadaRay.info.

I’ll have a separate announcement soon! Stay tuned for the news on the donation/payment options front!

Here is the full list of topics discussed in VIDEO ESR9

ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN: WHO DESTABILIZES EURASIAN UNION?

(PLUS! Color revolutions & destabilization alerts for Caucasus & Central Asia. Hot intel from Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan)

PART 1: Kazakhstan’s ‘Agricultural’ Color Revolution

Analysis of the Foiled Kazakhstan ‘Agricultural’ Color Revolution of May 21, 2016 (my term).
Explained: Kazakhstan’s Land Reform and proposed sale of agricultural lands to foreigners as the pretext to ignite tensions and set population on fire. (Recall Kiev Maidan slogan of ‘getting rid of oligarchs and corruption.’)
China’s supposed involvement
How I see it: the real situation with China vs. hyped-up fears

Who is really behind this color revolution: Soros, US NGOs (Endowment for Democracy, USAID, etc.), social media IP addresses traced to the US, etc.
Ukraine, Turkey and ISIS involvement
How it was done: no apparent leaders – most subversive ‘news’ and announcements made via YouTube, Twitter & Facebook. Molotov cocktails, subversive literature, money, weapons, vodka stashes

PART 2: Aktobe terror attacks. Why Kazakhstan was chosen for color revolution & attacks.
Hot Russia & Central Asia Intel

On the border with Russia: Why Kazakhstan’s fastest growing city of Aktobe (Aktyubinsk) was chosen for terrorist attacks on June 5, 2016. I put you in the middle of the action and explain in detail, with maps and specifics, why.

The attack on Pallada gun shop and killing of the Ukrainian-Russian salesman, plus, the mourning and funeral – with pics.

Attack on the military/national guard barracks, bus hijacking, etc.Why was specifically Kazakhstan, with its stronger military and central power, singled out for the color revolution and terror attacks? Why not a weaker Central Asian state such as Kyrgyzstan or Tajikistan?

How Russia is key to everything that goes on in the region: all about Russia’s interests, involvement, role and more.

Hot Central Asia intel: the real situation in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan.

Mini-documentary 1: Foiled Color Revolution in Kazakhstan

Footage includes security op by authorities, arrests and found weapons (cut metal rods, grenades, Molotov cocktails), subversive literature, vodka, money, etc. This is a part of the documentary aired on Kazakh central TV. It directly names the culprits of the color revolution attempt: Soros, Endowment for Democracy, USAID and other US NGO’s, as well as US government. Other connections named in the documentary are: Ukraine’s fascist ‘right sector’ Islamist fundamentalists and ISIS. Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev announced that Kazakhstan ‘won’t allow ‘Ukraine Maidan’ scenario in the country,’ thus indicating he knew very well where the wind blew from and was prepared to deal with it.

My EXCLUSIVE eye-witness mini-documentary 2: AKTOBE ATTACKS 

Complete, packed with action, on-the-ground coverage of what went on on June 5 in Aktobe. Several terrorist groups were involved, some of which attacked 2 gun shops, others – the military installation, yet others hijacked a bus with hostages and a police vehicle.
Panic in the city: note that this amateur footage was shot from different vantage points from lay people’s windows, balconies and from ground level. The whole thing is especially troubling because everything is happening in densely populated areas, where civilians could have been easily hurt, which, thankfully, didn’t happen.
The footage shows the gunmen, attack on gun shop Pallada, the hijacking of the bus with hostages, etc. The opening footage was uploaded on YT by the terrorists themselves. It shows them in one of the hijacked vehicles, being chased by and shooting at police.

Part 3: Nazarbayev & Kazakh elites. Response to color revolution

President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s tough response: we won’t allow ‘Ukraine scenario.’
Authorities reaction to the color revolution and Aktobe attacks.
What was used as a pretext for riots.
Kazakhs aren’t fooled as to who’s really behind color revolution attempt.
Police, intelligence and national guard preparedness & actions during attacks and color revolution.
Russian advice?

Global downturn and why Kazakhstan’s Agricultural Land Reform was really planned.
Backtracking on the Agricultural Land Reform, firing/reprimand of ministers and placating of the population.

Nazarbayev and Kazakh elites.
The fight of Russian-speaking Kazakh elites vs. Kazakh-speaking elites.

The issue of the Russian-speaking, Christian population (Russians, Ukrainians and Russian-Germans). Past problems and what’s happening now.

Part 4: Complicated Game: War against Russia.
Russia as Global Balancer & why Kazakhstan is so important to Eurasia

This part contains my brand new EARTH SHIFT MATERIAL, never previously discussed in public! (Read about EARTH SHIFT SYSTEM and Russia as the Great Balancer!)

How the global seesaw works.
Russia’s role as Global Balancer & Stabilizer – explained in pics & examples.
Why those who want to keep the world destabilized desperately need to do away with Russia.

COMPLICATED GAME:
Rocky relationship and falling out: US Empire vs. globalist elites (yes, you’ve heard me right!).
US – the globalist elites’ super-tool gone rogue.
War on several fronts and the breakup of the old world structures.
Would globalist elites actually prefer Russia to get stronger to curb US appetites?

Russia’s support system and the Eurasian armchair arrangement – explained in pics & examples.
Crucial importance of Kazakhstan and Belarus for Russia & Eurasia.

Russia/EAU-ASEAN Sochi Summit and how it’s related to the timing of Kazakh events.
Why did Putin go to Astana? Real reason EAU leaders gathered in Kazakhstan just after the foiled color revolution.

Eurasian Union, its development, goals & global role.
Who wants to prevent EAU from being built and why difficulties should be expected.

Part 5: Color Revolution Technology & 4 Armenia Destabilization Attempts.

Armenia’s many problems. One of the two newest EAU members and four attempts at Armenia destabilization.
Full analytics: Electric Maidan, anti-president Sargsyan protests and a change to ‘parliamentary republic.’
Karabakh war and Russia-Armenia relations.
4 day April, 2016 Nagorno-Karabakh war between Azerbaijan and Armenia – qui bono?
Russia’s role in quelling the conflict.
How Putin played peacemaker between Armenia and Azerbaijan and why Armenians are peeved at Russia.
LA connection – who influences Armenia?

Azerbaijan: which way now: Russia vs. Turkey/ US? Prospects for joining EAU.
Georgia: US patsy. Will there be changes?

PLUS: let’s return to Central Asia.
On the border with Afghanistan and Pakistan: Tajikistan’s precarious position.

Color Revolution Technology and 4 Armenia Destabilization Attempts

From the English language site of EEC: EurasianCommission.org

“Armenia is now in the Eurasian Economic Union”

“1/2/2015

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.
Maps of EAEU & membership info are included in

electric maidan 3

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?

Hot Earth Shift Report on the way! ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN: Who Destabilizes Eurasian Union?

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!

ESR9 – Attack on Kazakhstan: Who Destabilizes Eurasian Union?

(PLUS! Color revolutions & destabilization alerts for Caucasus & Central Asia: intel from Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan)

ESR9 BANNER

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!

ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? Is Astana KZ New NWO capital?

ESR 1reloaded PUTIN ASTANA NWO

 

Briefly-Important: Foiled Color Revolution in Kazakhstan; Putin-Abe Meet; Russia-ASEAN Sochi Summit

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.

What happened:

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!

How Earth Shift Report Was Born + 2015 Bestseller List

The Earth Shift Report (ESR) idea began when the first two FREE ESRs were released in 2014. It quickly became clear that Earth Shift Reports didn’t fit into the usual FuturisTrendcast format, going far beyond any of my usual articles in scope, idea and size. They were simply too big and too involved for the blog. Each report was more on par with the scope and feel of a book, simultaneously being much more current than any usual book could possibly be.

This is understandable – any published book often requires years to get published. I didn’t have this luxury: my reports had to be substantially more relevant to the fast-evolving global situations, which were the target of my writing.

It was clear that getting bogged down for years in order to release books on these important subjects would defeat the immediate urgency of what needed to be said – and heard – now. Therefore, I needed something that would combine the scope, depth and versatility of a book with a speedy, easy to read, delivery of an article.

How could I make it happen?

This dilemma was solved and Earth Shift Report idea was born. The challenge was to distill the subject worthy of a full book into a relatively compact format, while keeping it jam-packed with timely, entertaining and fresh info. Completing this amount of work within a small window of time was also a challenge, considering there are lots of other balls to juggle and only 24 hours in a day.

On average an Earth Shift Report would be anywhere between 25 (on the small side) and 70 print pages (the longest so far). While reports are normally written, the most unusual one so far is the Video ESR4: Alien Technology & New Russian Weapons. It consists of my opening article and the 45 min. video with my subtitled translation. The information I came across was so interesting and important that I felt compelled to share it. I don’t intend to make a habit out of it, but should I come across more earth-shattering videos of this magnitude, I may do other video ESRs in the future.

The usual structure of an ESR is this: It normally includes my most important intel, analysis, predictions and historic references, where appropriate – all this shining the light on our past, present and future in order to form a full picture on the subject at hand. In addition, each report may include supporting illustrations, maps, pics and/or videos with translations and explanations.

Because of the sheer amount of work, knowledge and effort that went into each report, it became impossible to continue releasing them for free. It was decided to make them donation based to ensure the continuing release of future ESRs, as well as in support of free content on FuturisTrendcast and Lada Ray YT Channel. The most equitable thing to do seemed to let readers decide how much they wanted and were able to contribute to the reports. Thus, the ESR donation system was born. We like it and hope it continues working well.

At this point, I believe it’s a well-working system as ESRs get released whenever they are ready and readers donate as much as they can per report. After some discussion we resolved not to make it into a regular ESR subscription. The idea is to release each report when the timing and energy are right – not at any regularly predetermined intervals of time. We may at some point in the future reconsider and make ESRs subscription-based. There are plusses and minuses to both options, but for now we like our way best. Should the change happen, we’ll let you all know. (You can still opt for a regular recurring donation to support our free content on FT – read more here.)

For those who’ve asked whether I have plans to release any of the reports as books: yes, I do – some time in the future.

But not yet. My immediate plans are to continue writing and doing videos, covering crucial events and topics in the form that quickly finds a reader’s eye and a listener’s ear. I have too many ESRs and articles in the pipeline in order to take any time off. Releasing a book is a huge undertaking, requiring one to put on hold everything else. Neither I, nor my readers, can afford it at the moment.

In fact, I foresee that in 2016 and beyond my FuturisTrendcast articles and ESRs will be in an ever so increasing demand. There are also new plans for videos on Lada Ray Channel. I also plan to expand to online workshops. Finally, I have many ideas for the upcoming Earth Shift Reports that need to be brought to fruition in 2016. My year ahead has already been all planned out.

The intensity of the ongoing Earth Shift around us is not showing any signs of abating. Moreover, it is my prediction that it will continue intensifying. In such reality, no long hiatus is possible. I foresee an explosion in demand for my timely articles, workshops, videos, and especially, ESRs. All this will be very much needed by those who are awake or awakening, and for those who really do want to know the truth.

2014 Earth Shift Reports

In 2014 the following reports were released:

ESR1: Is Putin Part of NWO? In it I dispelled some persistently circulating myths about Putin and the alleged new NWO capital, Astana, KZ.

What do you know! I had easily proved with simple logic and factual knowledge that neither was possible. I also demonstrated how and why such hoaxes were spread through alterantive media and who really benefitted by them. Just after I had published this first version of the report, miraculously, the rumors of Putin being NWO pointman and Astana being the future NWO headquarters died down. It’s amazing how logic and knowledge can bring the light into the darkest places, and how they can stop those whose job is to prey on people’s ignorance and deepest fears.

The original version of ESR1 has been reloaded in 2015 with new and updated info on Kazakhstan and its president Nazarbayev. Now the report also includes intel and analysis of the ‘world’s quietest’ elections, along with the games skillfully played by Belarus’ sly fox Lukashenko.

This reloaded report is a juicy round-up of the psychological nature and geopolitical realities of the Eurasian Union’s triple backbone: Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. After reading this report, even those who know nothing about that part of the world, will be able to intelligently navigate a sea of lies and tiny shreds of truth floating around the MSM and cyberspace.

ESR1 reloaded: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? Is Astana, KZ New NWO Capital? (Bonus: Lukashenko’s Bluff) can be read any time on LadaRay.info.

ESR 1reloaded PUTIN ASTANA NWO

ESR2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY also came out in 2014. The first, free version of this report can still be read on FT. I plan on reloading this report with bonuses, my original and new predictions about Ukraine, Russia, EU and USA, as well as with newest explosive intel. The plan is to time the ESR2 reload close to the second anniversary of the February 2014 Kiev coup. We will re-assess what happened in the two years of the Kiev junta being in power and where the country is going from here. The reloaded version will be designed to serve as a one-stop easy-access reference to my two years+ worth of work on Ukraine. It will also expand on predictions and provide guidance as to what to expect in the next two years in this geopolitically charged region.

This is the preliminary banner for ESR2 reloaded: UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE.

ESR2 reloaded Ukraine 2

It is clear by now that my predictions on Ukraine are coming true, and more is to come. The country’s economy, sadly but unavoidably, is on its way to a complete destruction. Internationally recognized sovereign default is to take place on December 30, 2015, after it becomes clear that Ukraine has defaulted on its sovereign debt to Russia.

Pull up your chairs and get your popcorn (or Russian semechki)! The next show we’ll be watching will determine whether IMF will risk destroying the existing global financial system by disregarding its own rule of no lending to countries in default. This would unavoidably create a massive global domino effect with lenders refusing to lend and dead-beat countries/companies refusing to re-pay their debt.

In truth, it’s not a bad idea. The sooner this rotten to the core and inequitable global financial system is compromised, the faster we can start building a new and better one.

But my bet is that US ad EU will try for a time to prop up Ukraine through secret money and goods transfusions, rather than advertizing to the rest of the world that they have broken their own ‘cherished’ lending rules. This will buy some time – but not too much of it. In 2016 we will begin witnessing my original prediction materializing: Ukraine will start making a sharp turn-around from the West towards Russia, predicted for the period between 2016 and 2018.

Ukraine is in a difficult, bordering on catastrophic, energy crisis of its own making. The situation with gas supplies is dire and it’s not clear how Ukraine will get through this winter. If it gets through this one (likely with prop-ups by US, EU and Russia), it certainly can’t survive the following winter, and the next after it – unless Ukraine’s policies change, and without Russia’s help.

Electric grid is suffering outages and dangerous overloads after Ukraine’s attempt to collapse the Crimean electric grid. Considering Ukraine, Russia and Crimea grids are essentially one, Crimea shutting off the Ukraine side in response, spells disaster for some regions of Kherson Oblast. It also creates overloads at Ukraine and Europe’s largest Zaporozhie Nuclear Station, forcing shut-down of certain blocks. And I don’t have to tell you how dangerous this is – remember Chernobyl!

The situation with coal is equally bad and the economy in general is dying. As of January 1, Russia (plus Belarus and Kazakhstan) will discontinue much of the remaining exports from Ukraine, revoking Ukraine’s free trade status. This is in response to Ukraine opening free trade zone with EU, which would endanger Russian and Eurasian Union’s economy. It’s clear that this new silly step on Ukraine’s part will destroy what’s left of its industry and agriculture.

Two of the top Ukraine oligarchs, Taruta and Firtash, have come out with their dire forecast. According to them, Ukraine has anywhere between 4 and 8 months until a complete collapse. Ukraine oligarchs, including Poroshenko and Kolomoysky, are desperately looking for places to hide their money. Poroshenko, reportedly, is removing his liquid assets offshore as fast as he can.

I will touch upon all this and more in the two new ESRs:

CRIMEAN AGENDA and BLACK SEA GAMBIT 

Expected release for both: throughout January 2016.

The next report I released was ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS. While it concentrated on the wars between Ukraine oligarchs, most notably, Kolomoysky and Poroshenko aided and arbited personally by the US Ambassador to Ukraine Pyatt, we also delved into the psychology and mentality of all Ukraine oligarchs, as well as the populace in general. We revealed the fascinating reasons former Soviet republics were jealous and angry at Russia after the breakup of the USSR. We also revealed the usurious mentality of entitlement that led to the sad status quo in Ukraine. Finally, we discussed a very important issue that few understand: how Putin dealt with Russian oligarchs and how he managed to turn Russia around from the supreme mess of the 1990s, without breaking anything in the process. All this and more in OLIGARCH WARS!

ESR 3 OLIGARCH WARS 3

This brings us to reports released in 2015!

2015 ESR BESTSELLER LIST

No. 1

Within 2 weeks of its release, and by a very narrow margin, the latest ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM has quickly overtaken our long-time bestseller Video ESR4, for the Number 1 Annual Bestseller spot! You can read all about this report, including reviews, here on FT: Earth Shift Report 7: The Battle for Eurasia! TURKISH CONUNDRUM. (I am thinking how to best organize the ESR reviews. Next year, I may start a designated ESR Reviews page either on FT or on LadaRay.info.)

Turkey conundrum 2

No. 2

For a while I thought no other report in 2015 could beat the popularity of Special Video ESR4: ALIEN TECHNOLOGY & NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS – until ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM came out.

However, ESR4 is a very close second! The interest to this explosive and revealing video report has been very strong from the start, and continues being so. Video ESR4 promises to be a long-term bestseller!

ALIEN TECHNOLOGY AND NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS 2

No. 3

ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER was a very strong performer immediately after release and for the month to follow. A little birdie told me that this report became popular among, and was read by, top American politicians, including some presidential candidates! We won’t reveal the names here, nor our sources.

Same is true for ESR7.

ESR5 Syria Game Changer 2

No. 4

ESR6: UKRAINE – NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?

Legend has it that once there was Khazarian Khaganate that occupied parts of today’s Ukraine and Crimea, extending at one point all the way to the Volga River. It is said that some time around 8-9th century AD, Khazarian Khaganate accepted Judaism as its religion. This menace of a terrorist state made a living by robbing neighbors, selling slaves and taking tribute from the rich lands of Kievan Rus and other Russian cities. This resulted in it greatly expanding its territory and wealth. But Khazaria’s good fortune didn’t last as the ruler of Kievan Rus Veshchiy Oleg gathered troops and destroyed Khazaria so decisively that not a trace of its capital could be found, no matter how much archeologists looked.

Are there secret forces who are trying to revive Khazarian Khaganate in today’s Ukraine? Who are these forces and can they achieve their hidden goals?

ESR6 has taken the longest to write; it is the most complex and deepest of the lot, so far. It delves into forbidden history and linguistics, mythology and lore, today’s realities of the Jews, Cossacks, Ukrainians, Russians, and more. It goes on to reveal today’s clandestine plans and seemingly conflicting interests that strangely coincide within the geopolitical faultline of Ukraine.

The collusion of the strangest bedfellows that are rogue ukro-nazis, Ukraine’s Jewish oligarchs/ politicians, Zionist Chabad and US government are brought to light here. Old and new hoaxes are revealed. It is geopolitics and economics steeped in mysticism and forbidden truths.

These realities are in fact a reflection of today’s Earth Shift battle for the biggest of prizes. This prize isn’t Ukraine – merely a convenient tool. The one and only prize is Russia.

Read it any time, when you get a spare moment or two. ESR6 isn’t necessarily a hot commodity – it is timeless!

Color Revolutions: Who and Why Takes Advantage of Border Disputes and Historic Resentments?

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?

Lada, Thanks for the info on the Finnish-Soviet war. I really knew/know nothing about it. Just part of the radicalization and lead-up to WWII, obviously instigated by the usual suspects. But what historical grievances might have been involved were outside my ken. Maybe it is just nationalism. No matter how nice and decent the Russian Empire or USSR were, some groups wanted their own country. And now Finland is just a colony.

The reason I brought up the borders of the USSR was not to be anti-Russian. I know that Russia subsidized the other regions. But intentionally mixing cultures and leaving things up to Moscow had all kinds of side effects, which we are seeing today. It seems to me that the borders needed to be straightened out before letting the USSR go away. Besides the Ukrainian mess, many other regions could have been straightened out under Soviet rule and they weren’t. A big Armenian area is next door in Georgia. Georgia had Abkhazia and half of Ossetia. Ethnic Russians were stranded all over the place and are now discriminated against. This is a big deal. I read a comment from someone in the Crimea who said he basically had a bad view of Russia for the last 23 years. They betrayed all the Russians before, and didn’t care about them at all for 23 years. Now they might lose their base, and they talk about the Russian World and a Russian Spring. He thought that this was a big cause of all the Nazis inside the Ukraine who come from the historically Russian part of the Ukraine. Anger and a feeling of betrayal. Obviously, I have no idea, never having even visited that part of the world.

So we need to look at the recent past to not make the same mistakes. Many intelligent and well-meaning people downplay or even try to ignore or suppress nationalism, but it is a real motivation for many people. For better or for worse. In my view, it isn’t so simple as “a bad guy from far away came here and gave them cookies to kill their cousins”. With the collapse of Communism and the spirit of internationalism in it, people needed something to believe in. The corrupt oligarchs could offer nothing, and the fallback position was an ugly kind of nationalism, not just in the Ukraine, but also in countries such as Georgia. We all need positive visions and models. This is true of so many things, whether in our personal lives or with big things, such as the EU.

Ask Lada 4

Opening thoughts

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:

  • Quantum Scale of Consciousness: life-diminishing calibrations (ProjectEarthShift 1)

    (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.

Baku 2015 1st European Games (Putin and Erdogan about EU)

Just couldn’t pass this up! Guaranteed, you won’t see this exchange on BBC, CNN or Euronews.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Erdogan met in Baku, Azerbaijan, which is hosting the first ever European Games under the auspices of the IOC.

While there are African, Asian and other continental games, there were no European games till now. This was of course due to the fact that Olympics as such were born in Europe, therefore, the Olympics proper were till recently perceived as ‘European Games,’ if you will.

I have to say, I would much prefer to see Eurasian Games, uniting all the peoples of Europe and Asia, including EU, Russia, Middle East and all of Asian countries. Eurasia is in fact one continent, once upon a time artificially divided in two.

Some people may say: First European Games… and in Azerbaijan? Isn’t that strange?Azerbaijan is a Muslim country and the Opening Ceremony was a confirmation of that, when the entire show evolved around Middle Eastern themes. However, geographically all of Caucasus, including Azerbaijan, is a part of Europe.

Both Erdogan and Putin were present at the Opening Ceremony of the games (see video below). Incidentally, both Russian and Turkish cultural influences are very strong in Azerbaijan. Everyone speaks Russian and many conduct business in Russian/with Russia. Meanwhile, Azeris feel their biggest historic affinity to the Turks, although some lean closer to Iran.

Therefore, during the Opening Ceremony both Russian and Turkish teams received the most support from the audience, apart from the host, Azerbaijan, whose appearance was met with an ovation.

Basically, both Putin and Erdogan feel quite at home in Baku. They have met on the sidelines and here is a brief translation of their meeting (video below).

Erdogan: ‘First of all, I want to note that it was a great celebration yesterday at the opening. Great first games. What struck me was that none of the EU leaders showed up. At least they will be represented by their athletes during sporting events.

Putin (0:50): You, as a candidate for ascension to the EU, represented the entire European Union yesterday (laughter).

Lada’s remark: since EU constitutes a large part of Europe, especially, considering it’s what is traditionally thought of as ‘Europe,’ it seemed really strange that none of them showed up in Baku. In reality, nothing strange about that. This is punishment to Baku and Azeri President Aliyev for attending the Victory Day on May 9th in Moscow and for getting closer to Russia.

Of course, Azerbaijan was awarded the first European Games hosting in 2012, BEFORE Aliyev started getting closer to Russia. Things like that traditionally are bribes given by the West to various countries. Hosting games such as these strokes the country’s ego and in exchange the country is expected to do what it’s told. The same way as Azerbaijani singers often placed second or won Eurovision in the past. The singers’ natural talent notwithstanding, Eurovision is one of the most politicized shows on the planet and these are clearly political bribes. This time, with the European Games, the bribe was wasted.

I mentioned in some of my articles and a previous interview with The Plane Truth that Putin jet-setted the world throughout 2014, creating a complex web of new alliances. One of the brilliant moves by Putin that the West entirely missed was to invite both Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents to the 2014 world wrestling championship in Sochi. Wrestling is the most popular sport in both Armenia and Azerbaijan. But that’s where similarities end.

Ever since both former Soviet Republics, and before that regions of the Russian Empire, became independent in 1992, undeclared war raged between them for the disputed province of Nagorny Karabakh. Although Russia officially took a neutral position, Russia is considered by most a supporter of Armenia. For the first time ever, Putin managed to get the two enemies into one room, sat them on both sides of himself as they watched wrestling matches, and for the first time in decades, had the two shake hands. No one else was ever able to achieve such feat. After that, and after Russia awarded new agricultural/food export contracts to Azerbaijan to replace the sanctioned European agricultural products, Russia-Azerbaijan relations skyrocketed into a new orbit practically overnight.

I wrote last year that Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev’s father, previous president Geidar Aliyev, was intimidated into cooperation with the US against Russia in the 1990s after a CIA assassination attempt. His son starting to make moves towards Russia means he is now a target, too. Let’s note that Erdogan himself endured assassination attempt and multiple color revolution attempts, as well as a storm of attacks in Western press, after he and Putin agreed on the Turkish Stream late last year. But Erdogan is a general and he is much tougher than he may appear.

Consequently, Aliyev is being advised and supported by two very useful allies. This means he will be able to withstand pressure by the West.

The above inside joke by Putin is a hint at the fact that Turkey has been knocking on the EU door for over 50 years, but was never accepted, despite its close cooperation with NATO (against USSR and Russia, I might add). Erdogan gave up on the EU and changed gears towards Russia. During Erdogan’s visit to Moscow last year, he joked that Turkey wasn’t welcome in the EU; perhaps it was time for Turkey to ask for membership in Eurasian Union. As they say in Russia: ‘every joke contains a little joke; the rest is the truth.’

Video: Putin and Erdogan Troll EU at Baku’s First European Games

First European Games Complete Opening Ceremony, Baku, Azerbaijan. It was beautifully done and the Middle Eastern imagery was stunning. Unfortunately, not everything was factually correct (such as the legend of Europa and the Bull). Besides, the English commentators were as clueless as ever.
