How Much Does A Battle Tank Cost? T-90 & Armata (Russia) vs. Abrams (US) comparisons! Plus Israeli, UK, German and French Tank Comps
Soooo… The ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-threatening’ NATO, under the proud leadership of the US, has been running the Largest since 1991 NATO drills in Norway (What do Russians Think?)
In case you didn’t know, during the Norway drills, a ‘poor’ local village is supposed to have been ‘liberated from the Russian aggression by the brave American soldiers.’ Yes, just like that. And it’s all happening right next to the Russian border. So… Who’s the aggressor again??…
Since we have such an occasion, I got really curious about tanks various countries produce. Therefore, I did some looking, and…
The latest variant of the Abrams tank, USA, is currently the M1A2 SEP. Building one from scratch is reported to cost 8.58 million USD. If you already have an M1A1/A2 available, then the SEP upgrade will only cost you 6.81 million USD. ONLY! LOL.
|Unit cost||USD 2.5 million in 1999, USD 2.77 – 4.25 million in 2011 (varies by source) T-90MS: USD 4.5 Million in 2016|
Flying T-90 — The light Russian T-90, a hybrid evolution of the T-72 and T-80, weighs in at under 48 tons – speed, maneuverability and flexibility
New Russian tank Armata: costs seem to vary between discounted preview price of under $4mln to $7-8mln, according to some Western ‘experts,’ but then we know how believable and ‘Russia-friendly’ those are.
New Russian T-14 Armata
Average tank from various world manufacturers costs anywhere between $3.5mln and $8+mln. The upper end can be as high as $12+mln. The cost efficiency to quality ratio seems to be by far the highest in Russian and Israeli tanks.
Heavy US M1 Abrams, a whooping 68 tons in weight – per the video below, tends to get stuck in the mud due to being seriously overweight, lol. Who needs that maneuverability, right? As long as the military-industrial complex gets to make more money!
Here’s another list I found – variations in price are normal, due to modifications and upgrades:
M1 Abrams (M1A2/FY99) – $8.92 million
FV4034 Challenger 2 – $5.54 million
Leopard 2 (2A6)- $7.18 million
AMX-56 Leclerc – $4+million
T-14 Armata – $3.7 million
Merkava (Merkava mk.4) – $3.5 million to IDF; $4.5 million to others.
Video COMPARISON – US M1 Abrams (M1A2) vs. RUSSIAN T-90 MS – make your own conclusions:

A Mystery of Russian FM Lavrov & Gen. Gerasimov’s Visit to Merkel, Macron & Netanyahu (+ BRICS Summit & Turkey update)
This is an excerpt from:
Earth Shift Report 23

I wasn’t planning on this surprise installment, since the power duo’s international tour was a complete surprise to everyone. However, this tour is a direct extension and logical follow-up to Helsinki & Putin’s billion-dollar gifts to Trump and the West. As such, it must be addressed.
On July 24 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, together with Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces and first Deputy Defence Minister, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, made an unusual tour of Europe and Israel. They jointly met first with PM Netanyahu in Israel, then with Chancellor Merkel in Germany, followed by President Macron in France.
Gen Gerasimov left, FM Lavrov right
The fact that the tour happened directly after the historic Putin-Trump Summit in Helsinki, and after Putin made what I call his ‘billion-dollar gifts’ to Trump, is especially significant.
All parties to the secret talks are very tight-lipped. The public information is very limited: it is only known for a fact that the topics discussed were Ukraine and Syria. Russian sources also specifically emphasized that Syria was discussed first and foremost, Ukraine being an additional topic. The Ukraine topic centered around Minsk agreements. This is the majority of the direct info about this mystery tour, but I have a few more leaks – read on.
It has been recently confirmed by the Russian Defence Ministry that it never before discussed Minsk Agreements internationally. Also, it’s historically highly unusual for the Russian military to combine efforts with Russian diplomacy.
From the above we can easily make a conclusion that such visit by the Lavrov-Gersaimov tandem is unprecedented, although a symbiosis of Russian military and diplomacy on the international arena has been highly recommended and is very logical.
This is because Lavrov/diplomacy has the channels of communication, while Russian Army holds the real technological and logistical power. If we are talking the sore spots, such as Syria and Ukraine, it makes perfect sense to combine the efforts. Not the least because the military of the West lately doesn’t listen, and often does the opposite of what diplomacy agrees upon. This, for instance, happened previously with Kerry and Pentagon contradicting each other during and after negotiations with Lavrov on Syria.
Another moment that comes to mind: it turns out, the leaders of major Western countries don’t get accurate information from their military and intelligence, and moreover, they are lied to by their ‘allies,’ big and small. Merkel, Macron, EU and US are fed constant lies and manipulative messages by small European countries with their own agenda, such as Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Moldova, Romania, Georgia, and now also Ukraine. Of course, EU/US leaders should be smart enough to be able to tell a manipulative lie, but it’s just too convenient for them to surround Russia with Russophobic neighbors. Therefore, if they are deceived, it is because they are allowing it to happen. But even that has to end at some point, and this point may be now.
It’s a separate discussion, which perhaps we’ll have in the future. Suffice it to say that it wasn’t by accident that Trump recently called the brand spanking new member of NATO, Montenegro (aka, Chernogoria, a splintered off part of Serbia), quote: ‘a small, but vicious country.’ Trump reportedly said it in response to Russophobic president of Montenegro trying to compel NATO/US into an escalation of conflict against Russia. This, per my intel, was intended by Trump as a warning for all other ‘new Europeans.’ It’s just possible that Trump, whose wife is Slovenian, knows a little more about the true history and current situation in Montenegro than a usual American president would (Slovenia is also ex-Yugoslavia and Montenegro’s close neighbor and relative).
Along with others, Ukraine has been lying and deliberately misleading EU/Merkel/Macron and others about the true situation in Donbass. This couldn’t continue forever. The reality check appeared well overdue.
An interesting detail, which has thrown the EU/German MSM into a new bout of hysterics, is that Gen. Gerasimov is under EU sanctions, and is banned from travel to the EU. The very fact of him traveling freely around the EU and meeting with Merkel and Macron confirms what a farce these sanctions are. It also, sadly, confirms how irrational, lost in translation, and powerless the EU ‘leaders’ are. German government explained that since the conversation was about Ukraine and Donbass, such trip was allowed.
MYSTERY REVEALED: WHAT WAS DISCUSSED
Putin and Russians were not kidding at Helsinki. As I revealed to you in previous ESR23 Installment #4, Putin skillfully used the podium of the Helsinki Summit to advertise Russia’s new initiatives and make a public call for action on Ukraine/Donbass and Syria!
UKRAINE: MINSK-2 and DONBASS REFERENDUM
Russian military never discussed Minsk agreements with anyone previously. But Russian Army is the best source of military intelligence and surveillance to help coordinate efforts to stop the war in Donbass. Therefore, the first logical thing to surmise is that if Gerasimov was there in addition to Lavrov, the conversation was about Russian military’s proof of Kiev’s non-compliance with Minsk agreements. Russians have ample proofs that Kiev is slowly taking over villages in the neutral gray zone – in direct non-compliance with Minsk-2.
Nothing Putin-Macron-Merkel have tried with Poroshenko and Kiev worked. It is clear that everyone’s tired of the ‘black hole’ Poroshenko. But Poroshenko just steamrolls over everyone and everything. There appears no way for anyone to reason with him, while, as I mentioned, the intel the West gets for Donbass and Ukraine is either biased or a direct lie.
The fact that there are no more Normandy format meetings that include Poroshenko or Ukraine FM, should speak volumes to Kiev. Putin simply refuses to meet with him, never mind the presence of his babyseaters, Merkel and Macron — and this should tip him off as to his future. But neither Poroshenko nor his Kiev junta cronies seem to get it. It actually appears quite difficult for the junta to digest that yet again Ukraine’s future is being decided outside of Ukraine; and it will continue to be so, until Kiev stops behaving like a prostitute.
As explained in previous ESR23 installments: post-Helsinki, Pompeo and others in the US denied that there was a proposal of the Donbass referendum. This was one of Putin’s gifts to Trump, allowing him to insert himself and USA into Ukraine negotiating process, and to help remold the situation in Ukraine, if he was really serious about changing the status quo.
Russians took USA’s denial to mean that they aren’t interested, and quickly took their Donbass referendum proposal to Merkel and Macron, which takes us back to Minsk agreements. Gerasimov, with maps, numbers and tangible proofs, can demonstrate to Germany/France that Kiev/Poroshenko lie to them, that the Ukraine army takes over the gray zone villages and continues to bomb Donetsk and Lugansk.
The next problem is that Kiev continues threatening to blow up the Crimean Bridge, invade Crimea, start a full-scale war against Russia, and in addition, Ukraine has been harassing and taking hostage Russian fishermen in Azov Sea. After a Crimean shipping vessel was detained and its crew put on trial, Russia had to respond and now all Ukrainian ships and boats coming to and from Azov Sea are being detained and searched.
The issue to ponder for Merkel and Macron is what to do with Poroshenko. This would be beyond the scope of Gerasimov’s and Lavrov’s agenda, but as a result of the visit, I’m sure both leaders of the EU would have to think long and hard what kind of monster they have helped create in Ukraine and what to do with this monster going forward.
The main thing discussed during these mystery meetings would have been the Russian proposal of the Donbass referendum, which is part of Lavrov’s task. And this visit also serves a role of creating a competition between US and EU in terms of Ukraine – a good move on Russia’s part.
RUSSIAN SYRIA REFUGEE PROPOSAL: EU, MERKEL & MACRON BENEFIT GREATLY!
And here’s another huge bonus for everyone involved. The reason Syria and Ukraine were bundled together is this: Russia is proposing a refugee solution for Syria, which benefits the EU greatly, while just maybe EU can do something for Russia. The resettlement back in Syria of Syrian refugees will spectacularly solve the migrant problem in the EU. It is another multi-billion dollar Putin’s gift we have discussed in previous installments.
It appears Merkel and Macron were paying attention to the Putin-Trump Summit. And this is why Lavrov and Gerasimov are there. Gerasimov can demonstrate with secret maps, numbers and tangible proofs the true situation with the liberation of Syria by Syrian and Russian armies (90% of the territory liberated, and the process is accelerating). As mentioned above: it is a fair bet that neither Merkel nor Macron have accurate intel on what’s really going on in Syria.
However, Putin’s refugee return proposal is something they would be very interested in. Something crossed my wires recently: EU/Merkel’s proposal to pay 6,000 euros for each refugee who returns home. It occurs to me that this isn’t a bad way for the Russian Army to make some extra cash.
SYRIA-UKRAINE RECIPROCITY AND COOPERATION SWAP
And here’s the best part: if all goes well, Russia can swap her help with returning Syrian refugees back home, thus alleviating EU migrant crisis, for Merkel/Macron’s cooperation on Ukraine and Donbass.
Of course, we have to be realistic. Merkel and Macron are still parts of the same EU and globalist neoliberal-neocon elites. They still cannot be trusted. They will still get lots of pressure from the Dark State and they are still confined by their outdated ideology.
However, with Trump’s and Earth Shift’s help, they are in dire straits on many fronts. The EU, yet again, confirms my original scenario of the Inverted Collapse. The pressure on both to resolve the EU refugee crisis is tremendous, while Ukraine (as discussed in earlier installments) is a suitcase without a handle they don’t know how to get rid of without losing face.
All this combined makes for a perfect storm, which gives Russia the Great Balancer a great deal of room for maneuver. This is why the Lavrov/Gerasimov tour is a brilliant initiative, and some results will come out of it.
No wonder Poroshenko and his cronies are extremely worried, watching with dated breath what will happen next. I’ll return to Ukraine in my future writings, but it is clear that Poroshenko is considered spent material, and next elections in 2019 may see a big change in Ukraine. Meanwhile, challengers and pretenders, such a Yulia Timoshenko, are out, and trying to recruit supporters in the EU.
HOW DO ISRAEL AND NETANYAHU FIT IN?
Gen. Gerasimov (left), FM Lavrov (center left) and PM Netanyahu (center), with Israel’s FM and Defence Minister (right) — Israel, July 24, 2018
There are more moving parts, such as Israel, Iran, Lebanon and Hezbollah, plus Turkey.
Russian Army has been working hard to keep apart these conflicting forces. The biggest issue is between Iran and Israel in Syria. In ESR20 I explained the whole spread.
In short, this is the close-up of Lavrov/Gerasimov secret talks with Merkel, Macron and Netanyahu. What needs to be stressed is that the Lavrov/Gerasimov’s 3-country/3-leader tour was organized very quickly, as a response to and continuation of the Helsinki Summit. This tour signals practical steps to the implementation of both Syrian and Ukrainian plans. Gen. Gerasimov is a man of action, which means that Russia is trying to steer the West, first US, and now EU, into action. Since both diplomacy and military are involved, plans revolve around complex negotiations, intel and humanitarian missions at the time of war.

In this post, related closely to the article below, I explain the new type or international relations proposed by Russia. I also explain why I call Trump the American Gorbachev and where the US is heading.
LOTS OF HOT/ BREAKING NEWS & ANALYSIS IN THIS POST:
US & Trump, N. Korea, Putin, Lavrov & Russia, EU, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Japan, Nord Stream-2 and new South Stream!
One of the latest is a complete 180 degree turnaround by the West towards Russia – as I predicted back in 2014! A global fight not against, but FOR Russia is on.
Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, has called on the end of the witch hunt against Russia and for the improvement of relations between Russia and EU. The signal is clear; Junker and Brussels politicians go where the wind blows. They’ve been getting pressure to rescind anti-Russian sanction from rebelling members, notably Italy, EU’s third economy. The new Italian coalition, called ‘the friends of Putin’ is in a fight for the control of government against Eurocentric elites.
The biggest fish in the pond, Germany and France, have been switching gears in midair as well – and in a hurry.
Last week Putin received first Merkel, and then at the St. Petersburg Forum, Macron and IMF Chief Christine Lagard. Japan’s PM Abe was also at the forum. So were Chinese deputy PM and the president of Moldova Igor Dodon, who doesn’t miss a single forum.
Trump/US received unusual criticisms from Merkel, Lagard and Macron, while all three made overtures towards Russia. I found IMF Chief Christine Lagard uncharacteristic criticism of the US and Trump especially striking.
Merkel finally found the missing backbone and re-affirmed Germany’s full commitment to Nord Stream-2, which is being completed in a rush manner, despite tremendous pressure from the US.
Macron’s attitude during his state visit was completely uncharacteristic of his intermittent powerplays and strange mancrush behaviors with Trump. He was demure and meticulously respectful towards Russia and Putin. He even tried to be refined, citing Tolstoy’s War and Peace episode during the FRENCH (!) takeover of Moscow, in order to make a point of reconciliation. It almost sounded like a hint: I’ve learned my lesson, big brother, please forgive me… As we know, Napoleon’s takeover of Moscow resulted in absolute devastation of the French army and a hasty retreat out of Russia with few survivors. The end result was the army of Russian Cossacks dining in Paris and inventing for posterity the French bistro (if you don’t know the story, I’ll tell you some day).
Notably: as Putin told Macron during the St. Petersburg Forum panel, if France is afraid that US won’t ‘protect it’ any more, based on Trump’s new policies — no worries, Russia will help. Macron replied meekly that France still has Transatlantic obligations, but also has some of its own military force.
The signs of the US/Trump withdrawing from various treaties and obligations to allies are very visible. The allies are in shock.
As to Trump, he is fulfilling some of his election promises, but what he is not noticing is that by doing so, he is facilitating the Earth Shift (read more in next Patreon post!).
Meanwhile, also consistent with my predictions about the Time of Russia the Great Balancer, pilgrimages of different country leaders to Russia continue and grow.
Not far behind Macron was the PM of Bulgaria Borisov, who visited Putin in Moscow last week. When Putin offered his hand, the big Bulgarian instead rushed to embrace him in a tight bear hug.
Putin responds to Bulgaria PM Borisov hug
This comes as an abrupt and drastic change in Bulgaria’s behavior.
The big question is why?…
LATEST PATREON TESTIMONIALS:
Gary: Hi Lada, I’ve been following you for years and I have to say that this blog entry is one of your finest and timeliest. Since I religiously follow RT and the Vesti english translated excerpts, I already knew of what you speak. But this entry of yours encapsulated all events that are happening recently and summed up really well the extremely positive developments all over the world. You definitely have been vindicated on your Earth Shift theory and although I have strayed off a little at times (thinking Russia is acting too compromising) your continuous promotion and explanation of your Earth Shift theory and Russia as the Great Balancer have kept me on the straight and narrow.
J: Excellent article, Lada! This is all amazing news and I’ve certainly felt the Shift in the air. It’s as if common sense and decency are starting to take the lead. I look forward to your follow-up article!
NEW EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES!
(FH&FO series ESW7-10)
The new Patreon-Exclusive 4D Geopolitics – 5D Earth Shift Expose continues growing due to many developing events! It is now up to SIX PARTS, instead of 3 to 5 advertised previously!
This series is addressing crucial and interconnected issues, developments & predictions regarding: TRUMP-DEEP STATE/DARK STATE- RUSSIA-MIDDLE EAST!
Today I was planning to post another major article: DEBUNKING LIES: Who’s QANON? TRUMP-PUTIN SECRET? US BOMBED IRAN NUCLEAR FACILITY IN SYRIA? N. KOREA & DEEP STATE?
However, there are some Iran/US/Israel-related developments I need to cover. This is the new PART 3 of the PATEON EXPOSE, which will now consist of 6 PARTS!
This PART 3 builds on PART 2 PREDICTIONS & ANALYSIS: Israel’s War vs. Iran and Syria. What is Russia’s Position? This new part serves as PART 2 addendum!
In addition to all the clandestine geopolitical goings-on I revealed to you in PART 2, there are several more important developments and considerations.
I told you in PART 2 that Russia, Turkey and Iran formed a loose, but effective alliance of convenience in Syria and the Middle East in general. It serves as a great and effective counterweight to Israel and US/West in the region. It also balances out diverging interests, and the only way this alliance works is because Putin and Russia make it work. Without Russia, this kind of alliance is simply unimaginable and would fall apart right away.
It is also a pain in the neck for the US/NATO. Turkey is a member of NATO, and it aligning with not only Russia, but also with Iran, is very damaging to this Western alliance.
More than anything, this alliance however tentative and loose, is a major win for Russia the Great Balancer. Such things strengthen Russia greatly, and conversely, they by default weaken the US empire/globalists.
Of course, this alliance is also an additional support for Iran.
These are 3 mega-reasons why from the US perspective the Russia-Iran-Turkey axis has to be broken up at all cost. From Israel’s perspective, as well. In this, both are united.
Turkey is being approached secretly with additional perks all the time, and it’s possible that eventually Turkey will succumb to either bribes or threats. Likely bribes, because threatening Erdogan so far backfired. So far Putin/Russia are managing the situation well, and the likelihood is that Erdogan learned his lesson sufficiently, and won’t succumb to pressure.
And YES, as I told you in PART 2, Iran is a more difficult partner than Turkey! This is direct intel from the highest and best informed Russian circles!
(I had someone under PARTS 1 and 2 doubting what I was saying about Trump and regarding how difficult Iran is for Russia to work with, and citing another person as an example of what they wanted to hear. I am not that person – I am Lada Ray, and you’ve come here, presumably, to hear MY perspective, not someone else’s. I am also not interested in arguing with any of my readers. I will give you all the info and messages I believe you all need to hear, and even more, I’ll give you my love and care – but that is all I can do for you. Want to hear my higher-dimensional perspective and my serious intel? You are welcome on PATREON!)
It’s pointless for globalists/Dark State to try to either bribe or threaten Iran. This won’t work. However, it is possible to generate a discord between Russia and Iran, and that would damage the alliance, as Russia is the glue that keeps it together!
This is why Israel’s accusations about Iran’s nuclear ambitions fall on very fertile soil in the US.
The new US push to leave the Iran nuclear disarmament agreement and to restart sanctions against Iran is due to pressure from Israel, as well as USA’s own considerations.
The biggest USA’s consideration is that US cannot allow Russia the Great Balancer to get stronger. The entire package of anti-Russian events from 2008 till today is to try and push Russia back into the ditch in which Russia was in the ’90s and from which she climbed out during Putin’s reign. Georgia/S. Ossetia war 2008 and ensuing sanctions, Ukraine gas wars, Ukraine 2014 coup, 2014-18 sanctions, ruble attacks, trying to tank the price of oil, vilification of Putin and Russia, Skripal, chemical false flags, and more sanctions — all this is to keep Russia down.
Russia’s successes in Syria, building of Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream, rebuilding of Russian economy, Crimean success story, the growing China-Russia alliance, as well as the new Iran-Turkey-Russia axis — all these are undermining the US/globalist-centric world. Therefore, it is crucial to break it up.
Trump is preparing to exit the Iran deal. If he does, over the objections of Russia and the EU, he has to do it before May 12, which is his last window of opportunity to do so legally. Of course, the US may forsake the international law, as it has done many a time. This move will hurt French (example: French oil giant Total) and other European companies who are doing business with Iran. Israel dreams about such move due to its need for revenge and weakening of Iran (read PART 2 where everything is explained in detail).
UPDATE! By the time this article was published, Trump has indeed pulled out of the Iran deal, with major objections and criticism on the part of the UK/France/Germany, and their promise to adhere to the Iran agreement in defiance of Trump. Now, let’s see how long it takes US/Trump to break their resistance and make them toe the line! Judging by the past, such as anti-Russian sanctions, not very long. If, by some miracle, EU holds on to their sovereignty and economic interests against the US pressure (I’d like to see that happen, really), then Russia has a long-awaited ally in the EU against globalists and Dark State. It’s interesting that Germany has already found a bit of a backbone due to the construction of Nord Stream 2 they desperately need! Either way, this would be interesting to see the evolution…
The biggest prize, should Trump decide to pull out of Iran agreement, is that Russia – Iran relations may suffer in 2 ways: economic and geopolitical. Russian sales to Iran, not huge but lucrative enough, may suffer. Considering everything I told you about Iran in PART 2, Russia and Putin will be in a very difficult position as to how much to support Iran in its new crisis against US/Israel.
It is clear that US may try to threaten Iran with war and/or restart new sanctions. I told you in PART 1: EXCLUSIVE TRUMP/DEEP STATE REPORT: Why Trump Was Exonerated of ‘Collusion with Russia’? that this is a very brilliant dark tactic of the US/West: threaten and try to ignite a conflict in one country, then move on to another, and another, and another. N. Korea didn’t work, Syria strike was a failure – Iran is next on the menu…
PLUS 8 NEW PREDICTIONS, including:
Putin the grand chess master and Russia the Great Balancer; Oil Prices and how they’ll affect us all; Will US/Israel start a new hot war against Iran; Trump’s future and Deep State/Dark State…

And this result is considering the wholesale war against Russian sport and fabricated doping accusations against Russian athletes! This also is considering the fact that Russian athletes have been on average tested 6 to 10 times more that anyone else! I wonder what the results would have been if US, Australian, French and other athletes would have been tested equally as frequently!
This one is especially nauseating – just imagine the depth of corruption and fallacy in the WEST!
The early Russian reports say that compared to last year’s strike, twice as many missiles were used so far. But it appears US is promising that it was only the first wave, more is coming. They bomb the government and military installations in Damascus and Homs. Initial report: all missiles targeting Homs were shot down by Syrian army, using old Soviet anti-missile systems. Later I heard that some people were killed in Homs. There are some hits in Damascus, including the city’s electric system. France/Macron announced that they were hitting only ‘targets with chemical weapons’ – an obvious lie.
Russian sources have reported that so far everything is quiet around Russian bases in Syria. Russia always said that it will retaliate immediately, if any Russian properties and/or servicemen are hit. Russian and US Army Chiefs had been on the phone and all this was communicated. The diplomats have been working hard too. It appeared to have calmed down last week, but it seems it was in fact a calm before the storm.
No question, the entire US-UK-France elite has gone mad, which is a telltale sign of the decline. What’s more, they are all solving their own internal problems via diverting attention to Syria. This concerns Trump, Macron and May, who all have domestic scandals and fiascos to face.
Russian video of US/UK/France attack on Syria:
Another early Russian report:
All three US, UK and France admitted they were not interested in a real investigation, basing their strikes on MSM and video footage from Douma, made available by White Helmets and local ISIS/rebel groups, financed by the US/UK. These groups are very interested in toppling Assad.
It is known that the Douma ‘chemical attack’ has been staged. The evidence of this false flag is found everywhere. Links: FALSE FLAG CONFIRMED: White Helmets Made it All Up, Fabricated Data About Chemical Attack and Inconsistencies in Douma chemical attack.
HOW WILL RUSSIA RESPOND?
This is a hugely dangerous precedent. We again are teetering on the brink of a hot world war. Russians already announced that US/West didn’t heed the warnings, and now the consequences will be their responsibility.
It’s a bit early to say to what degree Russia will decide to respond in Syria. It is clear that US and others are very careful not to hit any places where there could be Russians present, but it is war and anything may happen.
Just one wrong move by the US or others, and a US carrier may be sunk. What will happen after that… your guess is as good as mine.
Putin and Russians, as usual, are the only sane adults in the room, and we can only hope they make all the calculations correctly to maneuver out of this situation with the best possible outcome for all. I told you previously that one Putin’s roles has been to save the world from WWIII, and he, together with his team has done so repeatedly.
But Russia will have to respond – there is no choice. I don’t have all the info Putin and the Russian Army have, and the situation is changing so quickly that I don’t want to go there.
Such incredibly fast developments and increasingly unpredictable change are typical of the GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
When, where and how Russia will respond — we’ll see very soon.
There is one thing that may likely happen. It is being hinted on in various in-the-know circles: Russia may respond asymmetrically in Ukraine, instead of Syria. There are some ideas being tossed around. We’ll see how far Russia will go in Ukraine. Some think it’s past due to change the game in Ukraine drastically.
But also remember what I told you previously: Russia’s hands are tied because of the football World Cup coming to Russia in less than two months. This whole thing is being orchestrated at this time on purpose, and the target here is multi-prong.
In addition to weakening Assad and Iran (also present in Syria), this is directed against Putin and the Russian people. It is designed to punish Russians for voting for Putin in unprecedented numbers. Finally, it is designed to poison the Wold Cup and steal the moment from Russia. It is the continuation of the same big sport/Olympic anti-Russia offensive we had talked about before.
The sooner Russians understand that the sport and other international competition events, such as Eurovision, are some of the biggest pressure points the West can use against other countries, the sooner they stop participating in the farce of various competitions, the better off they’ll be long-term.
Unless pushed so much that there is no choice but to respond urgently, Russia will wait till after the World Cup to respond properly to everything. There may be pretty serious changes in Ukraine before the end of this year.
Russia is presently also preparing economic counter-sanctions against US, in response to most recent US sanctions. There is an impressive economic sanctions list the Medvedev government has developed, which may be rather hurtful for the US. It has to be mentioned that China is also preparing a very serious package of anti-US economic measures, to be made public soon.
Sorry to say, Trump is a total moron for managing to get into a war on three fronts he can never win. Trump’s straitjacket is in action, as I predicted. Dark State successfully pushed his many buttons and turned him into their patsy. And his out-of-control ego has played a very bad joke on him.
That’s all I have time for at the moment. I’ll talk about Trump, my various predictions and how they are developing on another occasion, time allowing.

HEADS UP, DEAR FUTURIST TRENDCAST FOLLOWERS!
Denny Hunt, the host of WhyIsThisTrue, and I have recorded a new interview. In the interview we discuss why some people in the West feel a mysterious connection to Russia when they seemingly have no Russian heritage. What is behind this attraction — past lives? Or is it the fact that people are awakening to the fact that Russia – The Great Balancer is the only force on the planet which can provide stability and balance? We also discuss: the forbidden history of Russia and how the history of the world was falsified; The New Chronology by Fomenko and Nosovsky, and how and why 1000 years were added to the so-called ‘medieval times.’
This interview should come up in a few days (I’ll let you know and provide the links)!

DIPLOMATIC WAR: RUSSIA TO EXPEL 755 US DIPLOMATS AND STAFF
Putin has announced that the staff of the American embassy in Moscow, as well as consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok are to be reduced by 755 people. This will bring the US diplomatic and support staff in Russia to 455 people, down from 1100, which will be on par with the number of Russian diplomatic and support staff in the US. Both US diplomatic and technical staff has to leave the country by September 1.
Moscow also announced that US diplomatic missions in Russia are losing the use of storage facilities in Chertanovo area of Moscow, as well as the embassy dacha resort in Serebryany Bor near Moscow.
US embassy Chertanovo warehouses access to which has been revoked as of August 1:
Side note about color revolution in Russia, pro-West ‘opposition’ and Navalny
I should mention that Trump recently announced that the US ambassador and much of the staff in Russia would be replaced soon. It’s not clear yet what form it would take, but there is a possibility of more future Russian sanctions against new US staff, most, if not all of whom tend to be engaged in creating a color revolution and regime change in Russia. As the 2018 Presidential Election in Russia nears, the US embassy spies have tripled their efforts to destabilize Russia.
A notorious recent example was how in the middle of a local election US diplomats were caught on camera meeting with opposition leader Alexey Navalny. Similar documented meetings, including passing on of suitcases full of cash took place in the past. Some of that had been caught on camera and shown on national Russian TV.
Navalny is well-known for his unsanctioned, openly manipulative and provocative rallies in Moscow, the latest of which was a provocation during a Russian State holiday, subjecting unsuspecting holiday-goers with families and small children to danger in the center of Moscow. Navalny was also exposed for recruiting young teenagers to do his bidding, who were promised a good payday for coming out to protest (sounds familiar — Kiev Maidan anyone?). Per Russian sources, Alexey Navalny had previously been exposed in various journalistic investigations as a CIA asset on US payroll.
The true popular support of Navalny and other anti-Putin, pro-West ‘opposition’ leaders is anywhere between 1 and 2 percent, as previous elections showed. However, using the support and training US and their vassal Poland provide, they make a lot of noise on social media and in streets, attempting to reproduce the Kiev Maidan 2014 scenario. Are they really this stupid and don’t get it that Ukraine scenario is impossible in Russia, that the population will simply come out and bury them, should they try anything like that? In part, yes, they are that stupid. After all, it did work for them to dismantle the Soviet Union. They run on the old CIA playbook inertia, failing to grasp that today’s Russia, and Putin as Russia’s leader, are a completely different story.
But in part, they don’t care if they achieve their ultimate goal or not. Plan B involves simply destabilizing Russia, weakening Putin and miring Russia in internal problems, so that Russia and Putin cannot participate effectively in their role as The Great Balancer of the Planet Earth. If they can somehow make Putin so weak and compromised that he would not run for presidency next year, that would be their ultimate wet dream (obviously, NOT gonna happen).
In conclusion of this side note, I recommend you check out my essential FT article exposing Michael McFaul: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. This wolf in sheep’s clothing, universally hated in Russia, is now engaged through his Twitter account in very skillfully igniting discord between Russia and US, and Russia and Ukraine. As I said in above-linked article, when they choose to use their talents for evil, all of us suffer.
As usual, Putin waited till last second with his ‘US diplomatic staff reduction’ move and gave as much benefit of the doubt to Trump administration as possible. And as usual, Putin’s move is surgically designed and carefully thought through.
If you recall, just as he was leaving the White House in December, Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats, giving them and their families, including school children, hardly 48 hours to leave the country. Check out my December 2016 article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations. This was done in a notoriously cruel and inhumane fashion, so that families would be unable to settle their financial, housing and school affairs. In fact, they hardly had any time to pack.
Obama also took away two Russian diplomatic resorts, where the children of diplomats could go to summer camp and where families went for R&R. One such resort was not far from Washington DC. In 1977, The Soviet government officially purchased the compound for $1.2 mln.
Usually, such diplomatic compounds would be swapped between countries, based on mutual agreement. For instance, there was an agreement between the USSR, inherited by Russia, and USA about mutual exchange of properties in each country, to be used for diplomats and their families as private resorts or other needs. If the US allotted a piece of such real estate to Russia (USSR) in the US, a comparable piece of real estate had to be allotted to the USA in Russia.
The problem is that the resort near Washington DC wasn’t even a part of the exchange deal. It was purchased for $1.2 mln fair and square, and was fully owned by Russia. Therefore, taking away that particular resort amounts to an illegal expropriation of private property by the US government, using threats and force. This never happened even at the height of the Cold War. And you still think the USSR was bad?
I described why this was done by the USA right before the New Year – Christmas holidays, in the above referenced article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats.
The first words ‘I hate being right’ refer to the fact that I predicted things like this would happen in my bestselling Earth Shift Report 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER (release Oct. 20-21, 2016).
In the report I predicted that Trump would be put in a straitjacket so he would not be able to fulfil his campaign promises. I also said that there would be no need to assassinate him, that a whole big and all-encompassing campaign would be designed around him and his people, in order to sabotage anything he tried to change, until he would be forced to cave in and make deals in order to simply survive.
The frantic activity to sabotage Russia-US relations in late December by Obama, when usually a lame duck president would be playing golf, accounts for the fact that the outgoing administration had to create as many obstacles to improving Russia-US relations as possible. As we remember, ‘improving Russia-US relations’ was one of the key promises of the Trump campaign, which no doubt helped him win presidency.
In EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM (release Feb. 4, 2017) I re-affirmed what I said in Earth Shift Report 16. I also expanded on it and brought up new details and intel. Just a week into Trump being in office it was already abundantly clear that he would quickly cave in and try to make deals with those who did everything to sabotage him — in order to survive. In the webinar we talked about the probability of impeachment, and when it was likely happen.

4D WAR BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW: TRUMP’S STRAITJACKET & NEW ANTI-RUSSIAN SANCTIONS
In my writings and talks, I also explained why Russia did not retaliate as soon as the Russian diplomats were expelled and Russian property was expropriated by the USA. Putin and Russia understood what was happening. They were graciously giving the Trump administration time to settle in and act accordingly. One of the promises Trump made early on was that once in office, he would immediately take steps to return Russian properties and diplomats. It never happened. Russians still waited, because during phone calls, Trump explained to ‘dear Vladimir’ that he was in a tight spot: recall the phrase I coined while predicting this outcome: ‘Trump’s straitjacket.’
July 7-8 G20 in Hamburg came, along with the much-anticipated meeting between Putin/Lavrov and Trump/ Tillerson. Discussed were Syria, Ukraine and N. Korea, as well as anti-Russian sanctions and China. The promise by Trump administration to return Russian diplomats and properties was raised more than once during negotiations, according to Russian FM Lavrov. After the meeting, Lavrov stated, with a very disappointed expression on his face, that no progress on that front was achieved and that the work would continue.
Let’s recall that the only progress that was achieved during G20 Trump-Putin meeting, as far as Russia-US cooperation goes, was on Syria. This corresponds with my EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM prediction, where I said that I am reasonably skeptical (I tried to break the bad news slowly and mildly) about Trump being able to turn around relations with Russia due to his tight straitjacket, and that the only cooperation between Russia and US I can see is in Syria — and only tactical, only in small ways, nothing substantial or truly groundbreaking.
Trump’s straitjacket turned out very tight; it was constructed solidly and much faster than many of my readers thought possible. That is because they didn’t waste any time: Plan B was already in motion even before US election, when it was becoming clear that Trump could win, while Hillary was not fit for office. And what did you think, they’d wait, naively hoping their candidate would win? These forces, lurking in the dark, work on contingencies months and even years ahead, depending on the situation.
Speaking of planning… I am sure Russia was preparing the US diplomats expulsion months ahead as well, but was giving Trump/Tillerson the benefit of the doubt till last second. In the true fashion of the Great Balancer and Harmonizer, Russia wanted to see whether it was possible to resolve the issue without rocking the boat and without wrecking the US-Russia relationship even further.
However, instead of any sort of return gesture of good will, typically for the aggressively imbalanced West, Russia received new sanctions. These new sanctions, passed by the Congress by a landslide (only 3 were against), target Russia’s very economic livelihood: the Energy Sector. They also target one of the key Russian infrastructure projects to the EU: Nord Stream 2. In fact, the document published by Congress, which details sanctions against three main US enemies, Russia, Iran and N. Korea, dedicates two-thirds of its pages to Russia. It states point-blank that the goal of the US is to sabotage Nord Stream 2 at all cost.
Trump didn’t sign the new sanctions into law yet, but there is no chance of his vetoing them as the Congress adopted them practically anonymously and presidential veto can be easily overcome. This is that ‘Trump’s straitjacket’ — in action. This is that by-partisan war against Trump in full swing, of which I warned in Earth Shift Report 16 and EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1.
Therefore, dear readers, you can forget about Trump if you still had any illusions.
By the way, look at what happened with the repeal of Obamacare, and look at the number McCain has pulled on the Senate floor. As I advised you all in 2015-16: forget old divisions on democrats vs. republicans, left vs. right wing. This is all so 20th century!
The new No. 1 telltale litmus test of who is who is how they feel and act regarding Russia. No. 2: how they feel about US hegemony and bases all over the world. Once you have done these two tests, you can know for sure if such and such politician deserves your vote.
In this regard, I would like to ask you all, my dear American readers. Who has voted in a Congress full of rabid Russophobes? The Congress represents in a nutshell the American people. Is that what Americans really are?
VP Mike Pence has indicated that Trump will be signing the new anti-Russian sanctions because ‘of Russia’s destabilizing role in Ukraine.’ In other words, Trump completely caved in to survive his first term, as predicted. But it’s very doubtful he will, also as predicted. I’ll monitor this situation. But my general advice: forget Trump, he is finished — CONSIDER THIS MY NEW PREDICTION.
Speaking of which, the rumor is Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as Secretary of State. It’s visible to the naked eye that he is experiencing threats and huge pressure, and cannot control his own employees. Don’t blame him, ultimately, he values his life too. But he will (most likely) stay till the end of this year. I am not too concerned about the likes of Tillerson. These types always morph and adapt to whatever comes their way, they easily betray their principles and promises, if it suits them. Tillerson, just like Trump, may have had some relatively good ideas about making up with Russia, etc., but he, along with Trump, can easily forget those ideas, and make deals with the devil in order to come out of this situation with a personal gain, or at least with as little loss as possible.
However, the point is Trump is losing allies and shedding people left and right. Very soon he’ll be left all alone and will cave in completely.
4D WARS INTENSIFY: US-RUSSIA GAS WAR, EUROPE & NORD STREAM 2
The new anti-Russian sanctions target Western and Central Europe and those EU companies that are participating in Nord Stream 2. The enthusiasm for Nord Stream 2 in Europe has been huge. Something to the tune of $5.5 euros was pledged by EU investors immediately, before the construction began. At this point the Nord Stream pledge should be bigger than that.
Germany is the biggest investor. In addition to pledged billions, it has vested interest and direct participation in the construction. Germany supplies the gas pipes for the project, those same pipes that are targeted by new sanctions.
Italy, Austria, Hungary, Finland and others also pledged billions and participation. Germany is the hardest hit, but all these countries are in shock. After all, they are so used to doing what US tells them to do. Now they find themselves in an unnatural territory. There is much hurt feeling that ‘the US has betrayed its biggest ally EU.’ It took them this long to figure it out? I was warning EU about it since 2014. There is also noise in the EU about possible return anti-US sanctions, but do the brainwashed and sold-out EU elites have the courage and will to act?
Ultimately, it all depends on whether Germany will take the lead in the rebellion against the US, as only Germany pulls enough wight. I can tell you that Merkel won’t — she is too far gone. And this is why I have predicted since 2016 that Merkel would lose her election in the autumn of 2017!
The only hope is that the newly elected chancellor will be less sold-out and a little more courageous. However, the prognosis is not very good, despite the fact that German and European companies will suffer huge losses and for some the inability to benefit from Nord Stream 2 will be a kiss of death. When I say ‘for some,’ I mean not just companies, but whole countries. Austria and Hungary are very worried because for them Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream are the only possibility to ensure a secure gas supply for years to come.
Speaking of US lap dogs and French poodles! The moment US Congress passed anti-Russian sanctions, France withdrew its 2 bln euro investment in Nord Stream 2.
Remember the first round of anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and how France was forced by US to forfeit its delivery of the Navy carrier it had built for Russia? A billion+ project was literally thrown away. Russia got its money back through court, and although some sort of reduced deal was made to sell the ship to a third party, France lost both money and business reputation as a result. After that, India pulled out of lucrative deals with France.
This time, France decided not to wait and withdrew its Nord Stream 2 investment even before Trump signed the new anti-Russian sanctions.
The reason many European countries are worried is Russia’s 2016 announcement that Ukraine transit will be discontinued permanently as soon as the present transit contract expires on January 1, 2019. After that, Russia plans to let the Soviet-built pipe running through Ukraine to rot out unused. This would take the blackmail leverage away from Kiev: it won’t be able to blackmail either Moscow or EU, using its gas transiter status.
However, this announcement by Russia does a lot more. It also ensures that after January 1, 2019 USA loses all leverage over Russia and EU from the side of Ukraine. As I pointed out before, the fascist Kiev junta, and by extension, the occupied by them Ukraine, is used as a ram against Russia. But it’s also used as a blackmail tool against Europe/EU, and especially Germany. But not only Germany; many countries are feeling the pinch, including Austria, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia and Czechia, to name a few.
USA cannot afford this poison anti-Russian thorn it has created to be rendered useless. This is why Nord Stream 2 has to be sabotaged at all cost.
Many experts have said that the reason US wants to sabotage Nord Stream 2 is because USA wants to squeeze Russia out European market in order to sell their own fracking LNG gas to Europe. That’s just silly. Europeans aren’t that stupid and they know how to count their money. US fracking gas will be 3-4 times more expensive than Russia gas. It’s only Poland and the Baltics that could consider such ripoff to be a good deal. Russia doesn’t care about either Poland or Baltics, but Russia does care about lucrative business with the EU, and would like to keep EU markets, if at all possible.
The true reason for the new US sanctions is geopolitical, not economic. Even ‘Washington dreamers’ aren’t stupid enough to think EU will buy their gas at such prices and before infrastructure is even built. I spoke about this when Ukraine coup and anti-Russian sanctions began in 2014, and we are back to this yet again. What US is after is three things:
- Sabotage and keep down Russia – The Great Balancer as much as possible, preventing Russia’s normal live and steady development, if it’s not possible to annihilate Russia altogether.
- Sabotage and weaken Europe / EU as much as possible, as USA’s main technological competitor. But it goes further than that: a weaker Europe is a more subservient and less sovereign Europe. US is desperately clinging to the old 20th century model, under which weakened by WWII Europe was completely under US and did what the big boss said. US wants to keep that status quo, which is slowly slipping away, due to the Great Earth Shift.
- Keep Ukraine on life support, also completely subservient to the US, as a poison thorn in Russia’s side. This thorn can be activated at any moment to cause pain for Russia, but if need be, it can also be turned against the EU. US is desperate to keep Ukraine as that very important poison thorn. If Russian gas transit through Ukraine stops, then the role of Ukraine as anti-Russia on Russian borders strongly diminishes, until US has to abandon ‘the project Ukraine’ altogether. Trump has talked about slowly disengaging from Ukraine, but his surroundings and Congress won’t let him. The likes of McCain and Pence, and just about everyone else, will make him toe the line. The goal here is not to support Ukraine — they could care less about the people of Ukraine suffering and dying. The only use for Ukraine, from those dark entities’ perspective, is to use it as a poison pill, or as a ram against Russia and Europe. This is why they will support Ukraine till the last possibility.
Therefore, the main goal of the new anti-Russian sanctions is to slow down as much as possible the Nord Stream 2 construction, with the ultimate goal of weakening both Russia and EU.
In conclusion, please recall my 2014 prediction, which may come true, after all. As soon as the EU adopted first anti-Russian sanctions, I predicted that if Russia feels restricted by the West in any way, off to the East Russia goes. I said that Russia would quickly switch her focus to Asia and China. That’s exactly what happened: Russia and China became tighter than ever; various Asian and Middle Eastern countries beg for an increased Russian presence. (Read: Great Balancer Theory in Action! Iraq Requests Russia’s Military/Political Presence to Rebalance Region and World).
In the same set of 2014 predictions, I also said that as a result of sanctions EU may in several years time lose Russia as gas supplier and begin experiencing gas shortages. Today, July 31, 2017 Russia is preparing Plan B, in case EU caves in to US sanctions. Russian Plan B implies switching to alternative markets and alternative ways of gas delivery, which can cause serious gas shortages in certain EU countries, starting with Germany.
Let’s see if Germany and Europe in general have enough common sense and any sense of self-preservation left to act before it’s too late.
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18: LE PEN – MACRON FACE-OFF (lots on Trump here)
Subscribe to EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS!
New page for the FREE EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE Q&A
Macron won French election, as predicted, but with a much larger margin than I saw.
Why? Very simple. As mentioned in the original article The Plot Thickens! Who’ll Win French Election: Marine Le Pen, Macron, Fillon or Melenchon? : ‘However, I will not predict how dirty and manipulated this election may become. In this regard, all bets are off.’
The whole persona and the very appearance on the scene of Emmanuel Macron was a manipulation, as discussed in ESR18: Lada Ray French Election Predictions. The relentless pre-election compromising of various promising candidates, such as Fillon and Le Pen, was also a manipulation. Everything was designed to steer voters in one direction: towards Macron, or towards not voting for anyone, which would have still worked out in Macron’s favor.
There is no way of denying: French people are deeply dissatisfied with the status quo and most of their candidates.
As I explained in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18
This denotes a profound division in French society and disagreement which way to proceed. Such confusion and division are typical of THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
However, the French voters turned out even more gullible and more suggestible than I anticipated, but then, when it comes to predictions I try to give the benefit of the doubt…
Incidentally, this French election reminds me in many ways of the manipulation that occurred during 1996 Russia election that ensured Yeltsin re-election. I’ll talk about this strange parallel in my future book that will reveal lots of things about Putin, Medvedev, Emperor Nicholas II and the Destiny Russia.
It also confirms that my new strategy of sharing my predictions publicly the last possible moment is correct. Otherwise, even more can be distorted by the dark side.
One more remark before we proceed to the guest posts: in ESR18: Lada Ray French Election Predictions I make some bold predictions regarding the future of Macron and Marine Le Pen. If you haven’t yet, check it out. Some things are changeable, and we may return to them in the future, but some are set in stone. One of them is the undeniable continuation of the Earth Shift, which will change a lot on our planet in the following decade.

Macron, manipulation and Illuminati symbolism
Lada, I very much enjoyed your ESR18.
Apparently the Macron DM (Diacritical Mark) won (was “appointed”?) by a large margin. So along the way today I saw this video (“All seeing eye” symbolism at Emmanuel Macron victory speech #NWO #LouvrePyramid) which pointed out Illuminati symbolism present in Macron’s speech at the Louvre. So I viewed that video, then found the original he used, here (REPLAY. Discours intégral d’Emmanuel Macron au Louvre). It appears the camera shots were chosen carefully so that much of the time, Macron himself was located directly under the eye of the Louvre Pyramid. According to my count, in that video, it occurred 17 times.
I also noted the following:
00:07 Eiffel Tower appears illuminated red (red-orange?)
00:28 Macron hands up, head under eye of pyramid (first of 17 appearances of this camera shot)
09:35 Spotlights on the stage appear (in this view) to form a pyramid (several views of this)
15:29 Crowd appears to be illuminated in red (this view also occurs several times)
In my view, this greatly supports the idea that Macron is the RIP (Rothschild Illuminati Puppet) President. Perhaps at some point the French people will wake up even more to what’s happening on this planet and eventually, like the US, elect a president that is not so “Illuminati-ated”.

Links to be posted on FT, and on your private Trump Webinar page – check back in a week or so!
Here are some of the Q&A highlights:
1. Real reason Melania Trump doesn’t want to move to the White House
2. Will Trump survive his first term? Lada Ray predictions, Trump timeline and how it may have changed due to some early actions by Trump.
3. Quantum Calibrations for: Donald Trump, Rex Tillerson, VP Mike Pence, USA as a whole, Russia as a whole, US-Russia relations.
Other questions Lada answered include:
1. Underpopulated Russia and overpopulated China: the risks. Chinese nukes near Russian borders. Russia-China cooperation and joint development of the Far East and Siberia.
2. The shift in Russia-Japan relations and Japan-US relations. Will Trump remove the US military base from Okinawa?
3. Was the Japanese earthquake and tsunami that led to Fukushima a natural disaster, or was it deliberately orchestrated by the globalists? How was it done? What Lada sees.
4. Where it’s best to live in Russia. Emigration from the US to Crimea and Stavropol. Best cities to live in Russia.
5. Israel-Palestine conflict – who’s to blame? How will Trump approach relations with Israel? Shift in US-Israel and Russia-Israel relations.
6. US, Russia, Iran, Israel, Syria, the Middle East – what to expect? How the US is losing its grip on the Middle East.
7. Will Trump authorize the disclosure about aliens? Will Trump authorize the 9/11 truth disclosure? (Here we go into the 3D reality, plus what are Trump’s real role and real goals.)
8. What can Lightworkers do to assist this time of the Great Earth Shift?
9. Will there be a relief for the Mother Earth soon? Will Trump presidency be good or bad for the environment; what can we expect going forward? (In this answer we go into the human consciousness, fossil fuel and alternative energy, as well as ‘free energy.’ We discuss how the levels of human consciousness and how our way of life correspond with the level on which our consciousness vibrates.)
10. Were there alien bases in Antarctica? Was a secret base built there by the German Nazis during WWII? What really happened in Antarctica and WHEN? Forbidden history of Russia.
11. Is Melania like Jackie Kennedy? Melania Trump quantum calibrations, compared to Jackie Kennedy’s quantum calibrations. Lada’s opinion of both.
P.S. Almost forgot: in Q&A we also discussed Reinventing Collapse by D. Orlov and how I see the future of the US unfolding; where Orlov was right and where the US collapse will be entirely different from how he describes is. My terms explained: What is “The Mirror Collapse” and what do I mean when I say that “the US approaches collapse from the opposite direction than the USSR did.”
There were other interesting questions answered.
Much more info and predictions will be revealed in the upcoming webinars and in my book The Putin Enigma.

This is today’s video from the #Euro2016 in #France. It shows how drunk British fans, holding beer in their hands, throw coins to the begging refugee children and laugh as several of them roll in the dirt, fighting over one coin. Then, a French LADY shows up, who tells them “Shame on you!” As she admonishes them for their behavior, laughter continues – the lady’s attempt to teach them some manners obviously goes right over their heads.
This, incidentally, is a typical behavior of various psycho-sociopaths and invaders of all time and it reminds me of the episode I described in Earth Shift Report 3: OLIGARCH WARS. It was about young Victoria Nuland in 1982 Odessa. A Russian writer recalls how she spotted Nuland back then in Odessa, who laughed, throwing food into the dirt for little children to pick up, and how that Russian LADY gave her a good thrashing, which got her expelled from the camp.
You can read about the infamous Nuland episode here, posted here on FT: Real source of Victoria Nuland’s Russophobia: ‘Exceptional’ American in 1982 Odessa.

P.S. As an afterthought: This video shows how English football fans curse at and interrupt RT reporter, who incidentally also happens to be British.

SPRING 2016 UKRAINE REPORT! Nuclear Disaster, Elenovka Tragedy, War Against Memory, What Russia Wants
May Holidays and the dangerous spring 2016
This is a cold and dangerous spring of 2016. At least in Ukraine it is. So much is going on that I’ve decided to publish this new UKRAINE report in two parts.
Part 1 addresses a number of crucial new events and important threats facing Ukraine. These are:
1 The shocking Elenovka tragedy – a clear proof of Kiev breaking Minsk-2 peace agreement.
2 Polish and Ukrainian war against Russian monuments and their own history.
3. Chernobyl-2 in the making: persistent dire warnings of possible new nuclear disaster in Ukraine!
Also in this report:
4. The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany.
5. What does Russia really want in Ukraine?
6. How Putin and Lavrov, through peaceful means and reason, outplayed Merkel and Hollande and why Poroshenko won’t be able to attack DNR and LNR.
7. A concise Lada Ray guide to Ukraine’s parts (See additional maps and complete explanation in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE.)
8. Why the pristine Kherson Oblast I once knew is being turned into a disaster zone, being invaded by ISIS militants and the ‘right sector.’ More in the future Earth Shift Report: CRIMEAN AGENDA.
9. Worrying news from Odessa! City’s bracing for possible civil war on May 2 and May 9. The world’s eyes are on Odessa! Part 2 of this report, SPRING 2016 ODESSA REPORT, will put in perspective the dangerous events expected there.
10. Plus, a pre-announcement: upcoming surprise Earth Shift Report re. big changes in EU!
We are approaching May Holidays (RUS: Maiskie prazdniki)
What is that? Maiskie prazdniki is the cumulative name for two holidays: May Day on May 1, which is celebrated as both the day of spring and nature and as the international day of worker solidarity, and May 9, or Victory Day, marking the end of WWII and the Russian victory. Both are very widely celebrated in the entire Russian World / post-Soviet space.
During this period the provocations and clashes in Ukraine are widely expected. Also expected are provocations in other post-Soviet and Eastern Europe countries.
Poland’s war against monuments to Soviet soldiers, those who died liberating Poland from fascism
Polish government is descending more and more into fascism. It has announced the dismantling of something like 500 monuments to Russian soldiers, who liberated Poland during WWII. Hundreds of thousands of Russian and other Soviet soldiers who gave their lives for Poland, had been buried on Polish land. In the past several years vandals desecrated many Russian burial sites and Polish authorities dismantled many Russian monuments. In fact, those local mayors who resist dismantling monuments experience threats from the government and Polish nationalists.
It has to be noted that some simple Poles have been writing to the Russian Foreign Ministry with apologies for the actions of the Polish vandals destroying the Russian soldiers’ graves all over the country and the Polish government destroying monuments. Some try to restore and protect them. I’ll refrain from posting the graphic images here, but you can find them online, or search for videos on YT.
In this post I wasn’t planning on invoking the obvious word: karma. But there will be consequences for such actions. I’m not talking about any ‘Russian vengeance’ here. Not at all. I am talking about divine justice.
Incidentally, I warned about Poland’s descent into madness, isolation and hatred since 2014. Back then, a Polish woman indignantly wrote to me that I had no idea what I was talking about, that Poland would never, blah, blah… And, oh, look: just a couple of years later – as predicted!
Their biggest fear is the United Eurasia: the plan to keep Europe and Russia separate
The campaign of dismantling Russian monuments and other anti-Russian hysteria in Poland is accompanied with the usual BS about ‘Russian occupation.’
This convenient mantra was slapped together by the Transatlantic handlers for their current Eastern Europe vassals back in the 1960s-1980s. At that time it was used to tear as many countries as possible away from the USSR. Today it serves the purpose of artificially keeping the people of Eastern Europe and Russia apart. By stoking a fire wall of animosity between Russia and EU’s Eastern Europe members, the puppet masters are able to keep the Iron Curtain between Western Europe and Russia alive and well.
This is all a part of the same global game of weakening and isolating Russia from the rest of Europe. The creators of this lie are the same as the creators of anti-Russian sanctions and the ‘subversion’ of Ukraine. They will do anything to keep Russia and Europe apart. The thing they fear most is the re-unification of Eurasia into one continuous cooperative and mutually beneficial space – as it historically was and as it’s supposed to be.
In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT I talk at length about Stratfor Baltic-Black Sea Plan and how Poland is being used to erect a new Iron Curtain between EU and Russia.
Please read ESR8 for a full picture, tying together the worrying events in Poland, Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, the Balkans and Caucasus. Nothing that happens in those convoluted for the Westerners parts, happens by accident!
The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany
The destruction of Ukraine on all levels continues. A big part of it is the destruction of human memory, re-writing of the genetic code and own history. As Ukraine descends into fascist madness, it is simultaneously ‘decommunizing.’
Hmm… we’ve seen this before in one nice European country, called Germany. The outcome of the German Nazis’ all-consuming thirst for denial and destruction of others is well-known: it caused the near destruction of Germany itself.
It’s amazing to me how short and selective human memory is! I hear everywhere – even heard it a couple of times from my own readers – that Hitler was a good guy and that it was UK and US that made him take the slippery road to destruction. Frankly, I have very little patience with people like that, so I’ll just say it this once.
One: these are the kind of people who think they are independent thinkers because they read this in some obscure book and because they think it’s unconventional to think this way. In reality, they simply regurgitate someone’s hidden agenda.
Two: Yes, it is true that Hitler and Germany were manipulated into starting World War II. Simultaneously, they were pumped up with credits and technology by UK and US. The ultimate goal of this scheme was to unleash Hitler on Russia/USSR in order to destroy the only country that always stood, and continues standing, in the way of Anglo-American globalist expansion and the complete takeover of the world. Along the way, they wanted to destroy another rival – Germany itself.
However, the whole point of being a national leader is to be smart enough to see the pitfalls and traps prepared for you and your country. I am leaving aside Hitler’s hideous national-fascist Nazi ideology, which is partially explainable by Germany’s defeat in WWI. But only just. Again, who was forcing Germany to BEGIN WWI? Yes, they were manipulated by the same forces. But where was the wisdom and common sense?
There, obviously, was none. Incidentally, a German philosopher said: ‘Every country deserves its government.’ Germans ELECTED Hitler and watched indifferently as he prosecuted those who had a different opinion inside the country. The people of Germany also watched and participated(!) as Hitler invaded and looted country after country. Incidentally, the same was true for Japan, which invaded and brutally killed millions of Chinese, Mongols and other Asians.
IF national leadership and the people of Germany allowed themselves to succumb to outside manipulation, if they knowingly benefited from the tragedy and suffering of millions of others, if they CHOSE to purposefully and willingly participate in inflicting terrible destruction on the peaceful people all over the globe – they are responsible and there is nothing that can change that! Hitler and all those who were a part of the German/Japanese/Romanian aggression against other countries are war criminals and their crimes can never be forgotten, unless humans want a repeat of 1914, 1939 and 1941.
Some may say there was no choice. There always is a choice! Some Germans went to concentration camps or were killed because they spoke up. Others became anti-fascists and resistance partisans, or surrendered to Russian troops because they refused to participate in the massacre of Russians, Soviets and Europeans.
Three: I just have one simple number for you – 27 million lives. This is what Hitler’s and Romanian aggression (in Odessa and Moldavia) cost Russia and the entire USSR. Primary losses were in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. Two members of my family died and more were wounded during the Great War of 1941-1945.
36 million Chinese were massacred by the Japanese aggressors during WWII period.
Incidentally, I have absolutely no problem with German people. Two of my best friends in school were Germans; I love Germany and German culture. Same goes for American, Polish, Japanese, or any other people anywhere on the globe.
It’s not about anyone’s culture or nationality – it’s about world view and civilizational choice. It’s also about one’s conscience.
That said, on this site we have zero tolerance for anyone who promotes Hitler or Nazis/fascists of any sort. Permanent ban will be implemented against anyone who posts such comments. See BLOG RULES on top bar.
What Russia really wants in Ukraine
Ukraine won’t be able to repeat the German fate, no matter how much Kiev ukro-nazis try, because Russia won’t let that happen. If Russia weren’t doing everything to keep Ukraine from descending into ultimate madness and complete self-destruction, if Russia played by the same devious rules as the West, by now we would see the entire territory of Ukraine in the midst of civil war. The loss of life, coupled with the destruction of most infrastructure, would be much more widespread.
As it stands, Ukraine is doing an excellent job of imploding all by itself, even when others try hard to cushion the fall.
I wrote in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT that the West has no idea how many means of secret influence, intel gathering and sabotage Russia does possess in Odessa. The same exact thing is true for all of Ukraine. The reason Russia isn’t using these means is one and only: Russia is trying to preserve the lives, infrastructure and psyche of Ukrainians.
Russia is doing everything humanly possible to gently neutralize the US plan: turning one part of the Russian people against another part of the Russian people.
The West is using Ukraine as a puppet and a disposable tool to manipulate and weaken Russia.
Meanwhile, Russia’s goal is to keep Ukraine as intact as possible in the midst of self-inflicted destructive psychosis, activated and supported by foreign entities. Feel the crucial difference!
As I predicted back in 2014: Russia continues carefully and patiently remolding the situation in Ukraine, which eventually will lead to Ukraine’s turnaround. To do that, Russia is absolutely correctly treating Ukraine with kid gloves, even when it doesn’t deserve them.
Russia is Ukraine’s only hope for survival. Russia treats Ukraine and Ukrainians with kindness and forgiveness of a mother or father, who, despite the cruelty and bad behavior of a prodigal child, knows that one day that child will learn its lesson and return home. No one else needs or wants Ukraine, with all its problems.
Despite all difficulties, this, only correct, strategy is starting to bear fruit. Look at how different some European countries’ position is today, compared to 2014! Remember my 2014 predictions? More and more people in Ukraine and West will be awakening to the understanding of what’s going on; slowly, gradually, Ukraine will be turning back towards Russia and away from the West.
But the task ahead is truly monumental. After 25+ years of Soros/US/ukro-nazi brainwashing, coupled with oligarchic infestation and socio-economic disaster, some younger Ukrainians had forgotten who they were, succumbing to anti-Russian propaganda. It will be very hard, but possible, to rehabilitate this lost generation.
As it is, Ukraine had lost its way 25 years ago and it must go through this cleansing process. When health has been neglected for so long, the cleansing never looks pretty. There is no way of going forward without getting rid of old problems first.
But on the surface, it seems the opposite to my hopeful forecast is taking place. Today’s situation in Ukraine resembles the expression ‘it’s darkest before the dawn.’
Chernobyl 2: New nuclear disaster in the making!
On the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy, the loud expert warnings sound that the remaining functioning Ukrainian nuclear stations are a disaster waiting to happen. They have begun replacing the compatible Russian nuclear fuel with American Westinghouse fuel, which proved to be incompatible. This fuel was previously rejected by other Russian-built nuclear stations, for example, in Slovakia and in Ukraine itself.
Kiev’s severing ties with Russia means that stations are not being properly maintained and Russian-made parts are not replaced on time. All four stations are getting old, approaching a point of no return. Using the incompatible Westinghouse parts may lead to a catastrophe.
The biggest worry is the reckless exploitation schedule. Due to power shortages after Ukraine refused to maintain the unified power grid with Russia, operators are forced to constantly speed up reactors to maximum capacity during peak hours. Such experiments led to Chernobyl catastrophe 30 years ago.
The Elenovka tragedy
Two days ago Kiev executed a targeted bombing against peaceful civilians. Six people were killed, including a pregnant woman, and scores wounded, in Elenovka village. These people were sitting in their cars near border control post between DNR and Ukraine, waiting in line to cross to the other side. Some of them were retirees forced to drive to Ukrainian side to get their pensions, others – on their way to visit families or tend to their fields stuck on the other side.
Because Kiev continues shutting down border crossings, more and more have to use the same crossing, resulting in long lines. People sometimes have to spend the night in their cars, waiting for their turn to cross. Just before the shelling, locals reported hearing a Ukrainian drone, and shortly after, the Minsk-agreement banned heavy Ukrainian artillery began shelling cars with sleeping people inside.
Link to video with the aftermath of the Elenovka tragedy. Warning! It’s very graphic!
In my recent post Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf? I said:
“If Kiev can’t attack directly, what can Ukraine do? Instead, they are attempting to provoke DNR and LNR. To accomplish that they continuously shell peaceful citizens and villages near frontline. The idea is to anger the republics so much that they lose their cool and begin retaliating, thus breaking Minsk 2 agreement. After that Kiev, US and EU get to blame DNR/LNR and, of course, Russia in violating cease-fire. If that should happen, Kiev and US will immediately demand new sanctions against Russia and attempt to vilify Russia and Putin yet again.
This is why DNR/LNR can’t respond to obvious provocations. The especial cruelty of the situation is in the fact that innocent people and animals suffer under shellings, with no recourse.”
This new provocation falls in line with Kiev tactics of trying to provoke DNR/LNR into retaliating. Poroshenko is desperate. He is being pressured by EU, and now even by US due the election year, to start fulfilling Minsk agreement’s demands. He can’t do that because his own Rada will tear him apart. His only choice is to re-start armed conflict in Donbass to delay Minsk-2 fulfillment. This is why provocations, targeting peaceful civilians, will continue.
My prediction is that the Elenovka tragedy won’t go as planned by Kiev. The plan to provoke DNR into retaliating is needed to distract Ukraine’s public from internal problems, to re-ignite animosity against Russia, to delay the implementation of Minsk 2, to blame the republics for breaking the truce, and to instigate renewed sanctions against Russia in the wake of EU gearing up for their removal. However, all this will backfire.
Instead, the brutal killing of innocents will serve as yet another clear international proof of Kiev breaking the Minsk agreements. This event will put yet another nail in the coffin of the Kiev junta and its support by the West (many more nails still required, but it’s a start). If not, then EU, US, Canada, IMF and NATO will publicly demonstrate to all that they condone the slaughter of innocent civilians. Before some crucial referendums and elections, and in view of recent EU and US criticisms, this won’t look good.
The revolt in the EU has already begun: French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU. Recently, the people of the Netherlands have voted ‘NO’ in a referendum on Ukraine’s EU association. These are the first harbingers of spring, more to come soon!
Ukraine’s war on monuments – war on its history and genetic memory
Scores and scores of Lenin monuments have been destroyed all over Ukraine. Let’s recall that ‘Ukraine’ as a state-like entity was first created by Lenin as part of the USSR. Before that, there was no country called Ukraine, not even an autonomy.
The destruction of Lenin and other monuments all over Ukraine is accompanied with the wholesale looting and re-sale of parts of these monuments. The video below shows how many such monuments were destroyed and how the enterprising ukro-nazis posted ads all over the internet to sell parts of ‘Illich.’ A whole bust of Lenin, painted in blue-yellow Ukrainian colors, slightly dented: $35,000. Another internet ad about a sale of parts of what used to be a Lenin monument: ‘own a piece of history: made out of rare material, the same used to build the Red Square Mausoleum, price depends on body part.’ Disgusted yet? I am.
If Ukraine’s president, parliament, oligarchs and army can sell the entire country, why can’t these small ‘wheelers-and-dealers’ sell pieces of their history and heritage?
Video (The map of destroyed monuments reads: ’25 monuments to Lenin were destroyed, 5 – attempted to be destroyed.’ By now, I’d say there are many more):
This is the newest one, which happened yesterday: in Kiev, Ukraine, Ukrainian fascists from ‘the right sector and ‘azov’ tried to destroy Soviet monument to Chekisti – RUS: чекисты. The monument is to the first Extraordinary Commission’s servicemen circa Russian Civil War and first years of the USSR (1918-1925). The abbreviation ‘чк’ (pronounced as ‘chekah’) was used to designate the counter-intelligence investigative unit, establish by Lenin in 1918. Later it would be called NKVD and after that, KGB.
Again, let’s remember that without Lenin the entity we today call Ukraine would NOT exist. The territory was slapped together of a number of different areas of South Russia (Yuzhnaya Rossia, aka, Novorossia) and Malorossia (below see my guide to the parts of Ukraine).
VIDEO: ukro-nazis attempting to destroy the granite monument, with hardly a dent.
While not everyone agrees with the methods used by the Chekisti, it is still a part of Russian, Soviet, and therefore Ukrainian, history. Its role was often viewed as controversial, but also necessary, for as long as the country was in the deathly fight for its very survival.
The right thing to do is to accept what happened as part of the country’s history. Only by making peace with the past can one move forward. If you deny your past, your history, you deny yourself. In this regard, Russians are wisely accepting all facets of their past, good and bad. This is why Russia today is where it is, and Ukraine is where it is.
The Chekisti monument was built to last. As you see from this short clip, despite many days of efforts to destroy it, the monument was hardly dented. As one person commented: ‘The Chekisti are just looking down with disdain on these morons.’
The destruction of monuments in Poland and Ukraine are manifestations of the same darkness-induced craze that we are observing in Syria, where ISIS destroys priceless, UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as ancient Palmyra.
Normal people build. The urge to destroy what others have built is a manifestation of an overwhelming darkness experienced by the confused, undereducated and zombified minds, with violent tendencies.
Ukraine is a large country. A small minority of these thugs keeps in fear the majority. But I have to emphasize yet again that none of this would have been possible if these dregs of society were not supported and encouraged by the West! The West, especially and specifically the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Brussels, as well as their stooges in Poland and Lithuania, actively supported and nudged these crazies.
During Kiev maidan, Victoria Nuland and US ambassador Payet personally blackmailed Ukraine president Yanukovich and PM Azarov, threatening them with forced removal from power and personal harm, if the government tried to resist maidan violence and restore order. Similar pressure was put by the EU governments and politicians.
Under any normal circumstances and in any normal society such people would have been in jail, which would deter others. Instead, they were touted as heroes. The all-permissiveness always breads more violence.
The biggest criminals are those from the West who came to Ukraine with the expressed goal to generate violence, hatred and death.
Due to severe imbalance, which the world has experienced in the past 25 years since the collapse of the USSR, the weakened Russia was unable to fulfill her global balancing and stabilizing role. Large numbers of the world’s young people have succumbed to propaganda. This propaganda could be Western, emphasizing Russophobia. But it could be extremist Islamist just as well. It could also be fascist propaganda, stressing the resurgence of the popularity of Hitler and Nazi ideology of hatred and destruction. All these may have a different wrapper and flavor, but their essence is always the same: aggression, hatred, destruction and harm to others, while enriching yourself.
Putin for president and Azarov for PM of Ukraine
Since 2014, most Ukrainians lived in shock and fear. Some were zombified and confused. But the change is coming, the awakening is happening, slowly but surely.
In BLACK SEA GAMBIT I said that if a referendum to join Russia took place in Odessa today, 90% would have voted ‘YES.’ Very similar numbers would be true for the entire South and East. Even Kiev and sane parts of western Ukraine may surprise us.
Kiev just swapped the inept PM Yatsenyuk, who presided over the 2014-2015 destruction of Ukraine’s economy, for the equally inept PM Groysman, who is Poroshenko’s puppet. A poll conducted in Kiev showed that only 29% approved of Groysman as PM, while 58% wanted back Nikolay Azarov, who was PM under Yanukovich. Some now say that ‘Azarov was the best thing that happened to Ukraine in 25 years.’
An earlier poll conducted in Ukraine showed that 82% of Ukrainians wanted Putin as their president.
Renaming of streets, factories and cities – another maniacal epidemics sweeping Ukraine
As part of ‘decommunization,’ streets, factories and major enterprises are being renamed. The citizens are resisting it as much as they can. There are instances when the new name sounds suspiciously similar to the old one. Example: under pressure, a factory in Donetsk oblast (the part located on Ukraine side), was renamed from the ‘Illich Kombinat’ to… the ‘Illich Kombinat.’ Illich is Lenin’s patronymic and he was often called by this alternative name. ‘We renamed it after a worker of this factory, whose patronymic was also Illich,’ explained the locals.
They made an attempt to rename Odessa and call it ‘Kotsyubiyivsk’ (try not to break your tongue). Of course, if they succeeded, that alone would have caused Odessa to secede.
Wholesale destruction of Russian monuments
Under the guise of decommunization, ukro-nazis are destroying monuments to Russian scientists, writers, artists and also generals, who liberated Ukraine during WWII. In 2014, under the cover of the night, they removed the Odessa monument to General Chernyakhovsky, who commanded the army liberating Odessa. I bet Chernyakhovsky’s bust has already been sold to the highest bidder. Just like the ancient monuments of Syria, Ukrainian monuments, or their pieces, end up on the black market, often being sold to Western ‘collectors.’
Odessa, monument to Pushkin on Primorsky Boulevard
This greedy and senseless destruction of everything in sight is happening all over Ukraine. Recently, the famous monument to the 19th century writer Pushkin was under threat in Odessa. Ukro-nazis are continuously threatening to destroy the gorgeous monument to Katherine the Great, founder of Odessa. Obviously, aristocrat Pushkin and the Empress of Russia were ‘damn communists’ and had to be purged. Both monuments are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and were saved due to the widespread international indignation.
LADA’S GUIDE TO UKRAINE
End of 19th century English map of South Russia and Malorossia (Little Russia)
Ukraine was slapped together out of several parts, of which the majority was, and continues being, completely Russian-speaking, despite all the brainwashing. This was done by Lenin in 1922 for several reasons: geopolitical, internal political, psychological and ideological. I explain in detail what those reasons were in ESR2: UKRAINE and ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS.
While we all were a part of one big Soviet Union, no one was bothered by it that much. People were prepared to tolerate being a part of Ukraine even after the breakup, as long as they were able to easily commute to Russia for better jobs, sell their stuff to Russia, and be a part of the Russian culture through TV, books and concerts. But now they are unable to do any of that: Russian TV, journalists, artists, writers, cultural icons and political figures have been banned in Ukraine.
I believe I’ve mentioned this in Black Sea Gambit: Kiev is so afraid of the truth that they have banned me and my blog, FuturisTrendcast! Ukrainians can’t read my blog directly, but of course, there are many methods to bypass the ban in a roundabout way.
As soon as these bans began happening, this is when everyone suddenly began remembering that in fact they were never supposed to be a part of Ukraine, that Kiev usurped power and that they really wanted to go back to their roots.
Parts of Russia that became parts of Ukraine in 1922 and later:
Donbass (spelled out as the Donets Basin – RUS: Donetskiy Bassein) – presently Donetsk/DNR and Lugansk/LNR.
South Russia, basically consisting of the historic Tavria and Bessarabia. The Black Sea coast, including Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson. Pridnestrovie (breakaway Transnistria) and pars of Moldova are included. The famous Tavrian steppes stretch along Black Sea from Odessa to Kherson and into Crimea.
Crimea (aka, Tavrida) – now a part of Russia again.
True Russian territories, including the ancient Chernigov, Kharkov/ Slobozhanshina (the area which was part of the lands gifted by Empress to the South Russian Cossacks), Dnepropetrovsk and more – what is often referred to as ‘Eastern Ukraine.’ Dnepropetrovsk, located next to Zaporozhie, is also a part of the traditionally Cossack territory.
Original Zaporozhie Cossacks territories – presently the industrial city of Zaporozhie and Zaporozhie Oblast. I talk at length and explain everything about the amazing, colorful culture of the South Russian Cossacks in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE.
Everything I listed above is historically referred to as Novorossia (New Russia), although of course Russians (Russo-Arian Slavs) lived on these lands for millennia.
Present capital Kiev and poor, agricultural center and north of today’s Ukraine 1000+ years ago were called Kievan Rus, and 300-100 years ago – Malorossia.
Today’s Western Ukraine is correctly called Galitskaya Rus and Podkarpatskaya Rus. These are the lands of the Galician and Carpathian Rusins (RUS: Rusini; incorrect English: Ruthenians). During medieval times there was a pretty large Galitskaya Rus state there, which was invaded at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, who eventually destroyed it.
How Putin/Lavrov Outplayed Merkel, Hollande, Obama
& Why Poroshenko Cannot Restart Donbass War
In the midst of today’s gruesome Ukrainian landscape, there is something that has, perhaps, a more positive tone.
Donetsk warns of imminent Kiev attack on DNR and LNR
Donbass braces itself for the new offensive by Kiev. Eduard Basurin from DNR ministry of defence and the head of DNR, Alexander Zakharchenko, continue to warn that Kiev is amassing troops and hardware in order to attack both republics.
However, as I said previously, I simply do not see how they may be able to pull it off (read my analysis in Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf?
Additional analysis and predictions
The thing is that Poroshenko has to make certain noises to appease the radicals and ukro-nazis. But as far as real actions go, he really is tied up pretty tight. Besides, as we have determined previously, Ukraine is being slowly but surely ‘flushed down’ by the US and EU (as I predicted since 2014).
The Dutch referendum on Ukraine’s EU association sent a clear message. So did Biden’s advice to Kiev Rada to begin federalization process ASAP. So did yesterday’s French parliament’s vote to lift anti-Russian sanctions (French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU). And this is just the beginning!
But there is more:
The more information comes out about the atrocities and lies of the Kiev junta, the more EU citizens question the position of their governments. Europeans question more and more the propaganda that told them that Russia was bad, Kiev maidan was good and that EU did the right thing backing Kiev together with USA. The longer anti-Russian sanctions last, the more EU farmers, shippers and industrialists get impatient. Meanwhile some notice that while EU trade with Russia shrunk dangerously, US trade with Russia INCREASED! And that’s in the midst of sanctions! Slowly, US companies are taking over EU business with Russia.
More and more Europeans are realizing they were simply duped and the revolt is brewing.
Merkel, Hollande and other former advocates of anti-Russian sanctions now have no choice but to support Minsk-2 peace agreement at all cost, since the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions has been tied to its fulfillment. In a way, EU as a whole has cornered itself by imposing sanctions on Russia and tying them to Minsk-2 fulfillment.
Neither DNR/LNR nor Kiev are really planning to fulfill Minsk 2 in full. It is actually impossible to do so while this Kiev junta is in power. Poroshenko and his government can PRETEND to implement only certain points. The entire Minsk-2 in principle cannot be implemented until after the ukro-nazi Kiev junta is gone.
This signifies that:
1. What I said from the beginning of 2014: EU elites are inept and don’t understand at all what they are doing, which European citizens are finally beginning to grasp.
2. Merkel, Hollande and others will have to support Donbass truce at all cost. They are being watched by opposition and electorate. The alternative means they and/or their parties will lose the next election for sure. Recall my 2012 prediction about Hollande betraying the hopes of his electorate! As to Merkel, the recent 11% drop in her ratings will continue accelerating. All in all, her political career is finished. It’ll take time, but she’s on her way down.
3. EU supporting Poroshenko’s new offensive on DNR/LNR will give additional ammunition to eurosceptics and accelerate the breakup of the EU.
4. As I predicted in 2014, Putin and Lavrov were absolutely right not to antagonize Europe, continuing to patiently work with them throughout Ukraine crisis and despite their openly provocative, anti-Russian attitudes. This patience and lack of antagonism looks a little toothless to some. I had said that it was the only correct approach.
We’ve already been through this in 2008 with Georgia and several times during 2000s, when Ukraine shut off Russian gas to EU. They yell and scream, and stomp their feet. Then they calm down and recognize that Russia isn’t a monster and that, may be, just may be, they jumped the gun.
I know, I know. Putin, Lavrov, and Russia in general, are the only adults in the room and their patience is truly angelic. While Obama and US destabilize everything they get their hands on, Russian foreign policy is the only thing that keeps the world from plunging into a new global war.
VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Odessa’s cold spring 2016: city and oblast are bracing for blood and violence on May 2 and May 9!
This spring is especially hard for Odessa. After Crimea and DNR/LNR, Odessa is the biggest symbol of resistance against the Kiev junta. May 2, 2016 is the 2nd anniversary of the terrible tragedy, when 48, or likely more, people were burned alive on Kulikovo Polie. Kiev and ukro-nazis, together with Saakashvili, are determined to make a bloodbath out of the May 2 and May 9 in Odessa. Thousands and thousands of trained ukro-nazis from ‘azov’ battalion and western Ukraine have descended on Odessa. Provocations are expected everywhere. Tensions are the highest since 2014. Basically, people are gearing up for civil war and fear the repeat of May 2 massacre.
What is happening can be big and is also a harbinger of important changes in Ukraine and around the Russian World.
On Monday, May 2,
I’ll publish part 2 of the UKRAINE report: The ODESSA Report!
Read it in conjunction with my timely ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT,
dedicated primarily to Odessa & Black Sea events and conspiracies!
Kherson Oblast is dying — and Crimean Agenda ESR
As I remember it growing up, Kherson once was a quiet sleepy hollow, complete with untouched, contemplative nature, robust agriculture and down to earth people.
Kherson is dying: it is experiencing a disastrous invasion of ukro-nazis and Islamists from ISIS, Turkey and Crimean Tatar Mejlis, which is recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia. The damage to the environment is terrible and the damage to the population is catastrophic.
Their ultimate goal is to squeeze out the native, Slavic population and replace it with Muslim transplants. It may sound crazy and bizarre, but it’s not so incredible if you look at the map and notice that Kherson Oblast borders Crimea to the south – the only land connection to the Crimean Peninsula.
Having lost Crimea, US, Turkey and Kiev have concocted a plan to destabilize it through Kherson. All this is a part of the bigger agenda to destabilize Russia by creating zones of instability all around Black and Caspian Seas. To those who plan all this, people’s lives don’t matter.
All this is the topic of the upcoming new Earth Shift Report
It’s an explosive and eye-opening Earth Shift Report, crucial for understanding the Russian and global geopolitical situation. However, due to urgent May events surrounding Odessa, Russia and EU, I’ll be postponing it till further notice. Since Crimean – Kherson situation is still in development, CRIMEAN AGENDA will come a little later. Please stay tuned!
The present focus is on hot EU developments!
New, surprise Earth Shift Report coming your way!
I received a lot of questions from readers regarding TTIP, Brexit, the possibility of the breakup of the EU, the Dutch, German and French revolts, etc. Therefore, I am preparing a surprise Earth Shift Report in which I’ll address all that, and more!
Formal announcement coming! Stay tuned!

This is just the first step. More to come…
The world we live in is full of negativity and unpleasant news, on which we are forced to focus every day in order to shine the light of truth on grave problems and injustices. However, today I want to focus on something, perhaps tragic, but still inspiring and rather positive in a very profound way.
Lieutenant Alexander Prokhorenko (left) with dad
This is a very touching story of Lieutenant Alexander Prokhorenko and his heroic death in Syria. Facing imminent capture, he called the Russian fire upon his own hidden position after being surrounded by ISIS jihadists, thus taking many islamists with him to the grave. He was posthumously awarded the Gold Star of the Hero of Russia. Lieutenant Prokhorenko has left behind his pregnant wife.
Alexander Prokhorenko and wife Ekaterina
Incidentally, Prokhorenko is a typical Ukrainian name. You’ve probably heard me say before that there are millions of Ukrainians living in Russia, since essentially ‘Ukrainians’ are, simply put, Southern Russians, and most of the normal ones don’t consider themselves separate from the Great Russians in any way.
With great dismay, I often talk on this blog about the embarrassment that today’s Kiev junta-ruled Ukraine has turned itself into. This young man proves that there are good Ukrainians left in the world.
But the story of the Russian hero doesn’t end there. A French couple, in protest against the French media and government’s silence about Prokhorenko’s act of heroism and Russia’s role in Syria, decided to donate their cherished WWII medals to his family.
I’ve said that today’s Ukraine is an embarrassment. However, in truth, today’s collective West’s behavior and manipulation is an even bigger embarrassment, especially that of the US and EU.
But while the West is silent, trying to ignore facts and twist the truth to suit its agenda, ordinary people do speak up. It’s people’s diplomacy at work: Prokhorenko family has been getting letters and donations from all over, through Russian embassies and organizations. These tokens of support won’t replace their beloved husband and son, but they do confirm the family isn’t alone, as many grieve with them.
Touching video with details of Lieutenant Prokhorenko’s Syria act and the French couple’s gift:
Жерар Депардье на пресс-конференции в рамках Берлинского кинофестиваля рассказал о своем новом фильме. Французский актер также поделился впечатлениями о России, ее жителях и президенте Владимире Путине.
During Berlin Film Festival Gérard Depardieu talked about his new film. He also shared his impressions of Russia, Russians and President Vladimir Putin.
Gérard Depardieu: I don’t just have a romance with Russia. I deeply love her. When I am abroad, I feel as a true Russian. With the kind of president we have in France there is no surprise I feel more Russian than French. You can’t even compare the two. I don’t want to talk about politics, I am indifferent towards it, but I immeasurably respect President Putin and what he is doing, and I truly respect the Russian people.
I’m not trying to offend the French intellectuals, including my friends, who often criticize me. But I don’t care. I am the best judge of how I feel, what I see and how I live. In Russia there also are certain people who are against me and who are unhappy how easily Vladimir Putin gave me the Russian passport. Primarily, it is those who call themselves ‘pro-Western liberal opposition.’
