Can you imagine what this poll would look like in your country?
The latest comprehensive poll revealed very interesting findings as to who and what organizations Russians trust and distrust most.
WHO RUSSIANS TRUST
1. The Russian Army (Russian: BKC) – approval rating 90%
It is clear why, especially in view of Russia’s brilliant operation and a sweeping victory in Syria.
For details listen to my latest interview discussing Russia’s Syria victory: URGENT NEW INTERVIEW! A New Tsar Arrived: How Putin is Squeezing US out of NEW Middle East
Since he first came to power in 2000, Putin, understanding that this is one of the two first priorities if Russia is to survive and rebuild as The Great Balancer, invested a lot of energy into rebuilding the Russian Army, Navy & Fleet, torn to pieces by Gorbachev & Yeltsin.
Credit also goes to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who turned it around, based on the foundation built by others. Shoigu is so effective that the going joke in Russia is that he should be cloned to replace other ministers.
‘Russian Army’ or the ‘Russian Armed Forces,’ are the old names. It is presently officially referred to as:
Russian: BKC — spelled out as Voenno-Kosmicheskie Sili; Eng: Army & Space Forces.
Russia as the Great Balancer & great power cannot exist without exceptionally strong BKC.
2. Vladimir Putin – approval rating 82%
Ever since he came to power in 2000, Putin never had a rating below 50% and for the last several years it was always above 80%, jumping to over 90% in 2014 and after Crimea reunified with Russia.
Despite constant character defamation and personal attacks, as well as insidious 4D hybrid wars and relentless attempts to compromise Putin’s support groups, the population’s support for Putin never dwindled. After it was understood that Russians could not be influenced through direct attacks on their leader and through trying to provoke him to react rashly and without considering consequences, a switch was made to trying to harm what Russians consider dear to their hearts, such as the Russian sport, Russian flag and anthem. MY QUESTIONNAIRE ~ share your opinion on Russia ban from 2018 S. Korea Winter Olympics!
Putin’s 82% trust rating is very good news before March 2018 elections. Make no mistake, attacks will continue and intensify before elections — I’ll have my analysis article on the Olympics ban / Russian Elections / Putin some time next week. We’ll also have a big interview in time for the Russian Elections next year.
I have made extensive predictions about what Putin will do, and what his focus will be in the next 6 years, once elected. And if you think you know, you may be surprised!
For predictions and for the whole Putin story listen to EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA!
3. Russian MSM — approval rating 64%
This was a surprise for many. You all know how much the Western MSM is distrusted.
This is also interesting since the USSR’s government media was rather distrusted during the years I grew up – 1970s-80s – and many young people, such as myself, rebelled against it. Only later we all realized that it was propaganda, yes, but a lot more honest than what the West has always spewed. We realized that what the USSR news told us about the West was largely and usually true.
Central Russian MSM, such as VGTRK (holding company for Channel1 Russia), as well as RT, are rather well trusted. Many of you know RT, and now you know why there is trust — they report the truth.
Note, this trust is assigned specifically to the State-owned media outlets, and NOT to privately-owned media!
VGTRK, by far the biggest Russian media holding, has already announced that they will not broadcast 2018 Winter Olympics without Russian team’s participation. I will talk more about the implications next week.
4. Russians at large trust FSB (former KGB).
We must go back to the point I made above. Russians have learned their lesson since the breakup of the USSR. They now get it how important FSB is for Russia’s defenses. The personal reputation and trust of Putin, ex-KGB officer, also plays a role.
This may have been a surprise for many. Not for me. I’ve been following the progress of this organization for a long time. There had been some criticisms and even minor scandals. I’ve said this before: it almost seems that some of these criticisms and scandals are artificially blown out of proportion in order to make FSB seem less effective than it actually is.
Why? We are talking Russia’s ultimate defense against terrorism, spies and saboteurs. This activity was always relentless against Russia The Great Balancer, in any manifestation, even when Russia was totally dysfunctional in the ’90s. Back then such forces simply dictated their rules to the country.
Ever since 2014, terrorism and anti-Russian spying and sabotage activities intensified 10-fold. This happened in connection with the Kiev junta coup, Crimea, and of course, Russia’s Syrian success. Moreover, all this is multiplied by the fact that we are in the new era of an especially devious 4D hybrid war.
Hence, FSB has to be especially devious in return. One of the tactics that worked well was to make adversary underestimate you, which makes them relax and act bolder, thus making it easier to reveal the perpetrator.
In reality, FSB has been unbelievably efficient and effective in countering various threats. In the past 3-4 years I heard almost weekly, sometimes daily, of such and such terror group or spies apprehended in various parts of Russia. The majority of terror groups were temporary workers from post-Soviet Central Asia (and they were a part of Islamist jihad/ISIL). Many terror groups, especially in Crimea, as well as a great deal of spies, were from Ukraine.
Exact numbers are unknown, but in my estimates, FSB managed to prevent over 100 terror acts since 2014. Russia is more secure than it has been for a long time.
5. Russian government-made or -built objects and state projects
In Russia, anything that is government-built and or state-owned is much more trusted than private-made or private-owned.
I’ve heard from a large number of people who moved to Russia from Kiev, Lvov, Dnepropetrovsk and elsewhere in Ukraine after 2014. Based on the old Soviet stereotypes, and based on propaganda, Ukrainians still think that in Russia there is as much mayhem, stealing and lawlessness as there is in Ukraine, just ‘better disguised by Putin.’ They think so until they cross the border… They are always extremely shocked as to how efficient and organized everything is in Russia compared to Ukraine (and I daresay compared to many other countries, as well).
It is interesting to note that in some ways Russia took the good example of Singapore, drawing on its experience on how to organize and manage the country in the 21 century. Singapore’s organization is much respected in Russia. There is still much work to be done, but progress is amazing, especially compared to the ’90s.
And that gives us a hint as to why Putin really is so popular and why Russians trust the government at large. Perhaps they have just been doing a good job?
Example: a young family from Kiev looking for a good apartment to settle down in Kazan’ with their 2 young children was shocked to find that all locals recommend state-built and operated apartment complexes, as opposed to those built by private companies. In Ukraine it’s just the opposite, they say. People trust private-built and distrust anything having to do with state, considering it low quality. State in Ukraine = thievery.
Ukrainians are so used to bribery and tax evasion that they are very shocked to find that in Russia you need to abide by law and do things by the book. Once you do, the state leaves you alone and you have much personal freedom.
When Crimea re-joined Russia it was a shock for many Crimeans used to tax avoidance in Ukraine, that in Russia you actually have to pay taxes to be in good standing. Incidentally, Russia’s income tax continues being one of the lowest in the world, at a flat rate of 13%, but those who avoid it get punished.
Certainly, the level of life-enjoyment and happiness in Russia is very high, and that’s despite sanctions and a hit Russians’ incomes took because of that, despite Olympics scandal and constant 4D hybrid attacks against Russia. I can tell you Russians are much happier and life there is much more agreeable than, say, in the US.
Meanwhile, Ukraine, which did very well during the USSR, was recently rated as the most unhappy country in Europe and one of the 3 most unhappy in the world. Ukraine is stuck in the worst version of the destructive ’90s, and plunging deeper to self-destruction due to choosing the wrong path.
At the same time Russia has made a huge leap forward since the near destruction of the ’90s. We discuss all that, why and who must be credited in EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
WHO RUSSIANS DISTRUST MOST
1. Police. Despite much effort and no spared expense to re-invent its image and looks, the police is still not very trusted in Russian society, although overall the trust rating has improved compared to the absolute distrust there was several years ago. The all-out fight against corruption and some among police going to jail has helped.
2. Russia’s various political parties.
To find out more about Russian political system listen to Earth Shift Report 11: THE IMPORTANCE OF 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTIONS.
3. Some of the Russian ministers, particularly those who are responsible for the economic policies — the so-called ‘economic block of the government.’ This applies also to Russia’s Central Bank, still dependent on the FED and Western banking system.
This is a universally important topic. We discussed the future of the Western and global monetary system, plus the FED, in ESW3: THE FUTURE OF MONEY.
We discussed Russian Central bank and the ruble situation, why universally disliked ministers are still working in Russia, and when this situation will change, in ESW6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
4. Private business, especially big private companies and ex-oligarchs.

Ex-Russian Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov murdered in the center of Kiev
Earlier today, March 23, 2017, ex-Russian Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov was gunned down in the center of Kiev, next to the luxury hotel Premier Palace. Voronenkov died on site. His bodyguard was wounded by the gunman but was able to shoot him in return. According to first info from Kiev, both wounded gunman and bodyguard were taken to the hospital.
The curious thing was that the name of the killer wasn’t made public for a while, probably because the Kiev authorities didn’t know how to explain that he was a member of Ukraine’s National Guard. Initially, it was only said that he was from Dnepropetrovsk Oblast. Later it became known that this member of the armed forces of Ukraine was also a serial criminal with several violent crimes to his name. There are many questions here, such as: how was he allowed to join National Guard with this kind of history?
Update 3/25/17: Predictably, Kiev authorities announced that Voronenkov killer died in the hospital and that interrogating him wasn’t possible.
Russia 24 video detailing Voronenkov killing:
Voronenkov and Maksakova – fugitives from justice
In the past two years a very thorough public investigation of alleged corruption and irregularities in the medium-to-high echelons of the Russian power has been conducted. It is safe to say that the majority of charges announced publicly in 2015-16 were preceded by several years of investigations and data collection. As a result of probes, several regional governors were fired, resigned or jailed, major fraud and embezzlement schemes were uncovered, certain high profile police and Minister of Economy Ulyukaev were sent to prison.
This major op was preceded by a complete restructuring and overhaul of Russian police and the creation of RosGvardia (equivalent of National Guard).
Several months ago Denis Voronenkov and his wife, Maria Maksakova, both ex-Russian Duma deputies, fled Russia. The details are a bit sketchy, but my intel says that Voronenkov was under investigation on charges related to financial fraud and embezzlement. Voronenkov, ex-deputy for the Communist Party (oh, irony) was allegedly implicated in certain racketeering and shady business dealings since 1990s, and left behind a string of enemies. His wife Maksakova is an ex-deputy from a different party and ex-singer. She may have been involved with his schemes, although it doesn’t appear she was under investigation.
Several months ago, Voronenkov and Maksakova suddenly disappeared and re-emerged in Kiev. Their hasty retreat from Russia was a total surprise for their friends and colleagues.
The way I see it, someone tipped them off about secret FSB investigation and they were able to escape ahead of an arrest.
In Ukraine they were gladly picked up by the Kiev junta as ‘political refugees and fighters against bad Putin.’ SBU worked with them for a while, and per extensive intel, squeezed out whatever they knew, which probably wasn’t much. Consequently, SBU lost interest in them quickly enough.
Another interesting detail: Voronenkov decided to style himself as Putin’s oppositioner and political fighter, although charges against him were criminal. Upon entry, he received Ukrainian citizenship, which automatically stripped him of Russian citizenship. He probably thought that this would protect him against any demands for extradition to Russia.
Meanwhile, his wife Maksakova never applied for Ukrainian citizenship and retained her Russian citizenship. It has also turned out that she has dual citizenship: that of Germany.
When Voronenkov and Maksakova first appeared in Kiev, a rumor floated in Ukraine’s blogging circles that they would be hyped up by Kiev as political refugees and fighters against the ‘Putin regime.’ The bloggers predicted that after SBU had utilized Voronenkov for all they could and after his notoriety in Ukraine reached its pinnacle, he would be martyred by SBU, while the blame would be put on Russia. This prediction turned out to be right on the money.
While in Kiev, Voronenkov constantly gave interviews to Ukraine MSM about “bad Russia,” persistently alleging that “any moment he could be killed by Putin.” Apparently he was not bright enough to figure out that he thus styled himself as a perfect sacrificial lamb. It was as if he painted a big target across his chest with words, “Kill me so you could vilify Russia and Putin.”
Why was he martyred now? What’s so special about this timing? And who benefits?
It is more than clear that of all parties Russia benefits the least. FSB is a million times more efficient and professional than Ukraine’s SBU. It doesn’t need to gun someone down in the middle of a street, to the accompaniment of a risky scandal. Moreover, if Voronenkov was in any way important and did indeed possess any sort of secret info, FSB could have acted right away, not months later.
Who benefits the most? It is the Kiev junta and Poroshenko. Correction, I should say: ‘who thinks they can benefit?’ because my prediction is, this false flag will backfire. There are a number of scandals exploding simultaneously in Ukraine, and they spell disaster for Poroshenko and his government.
There is a word that ukro-nazi parties and battalions threatened Voronenkov and Maksakova with retribution because they voted for Crimea’s reunification with Russia. Just imagine the irony!
For this reason it was natural to use a patsy who happens to be ukro-nazi sympathiser as a gunman.
However, the real puppet masters are in Kiev and across the big pond. The reason they needed to act quickly is banal: there are so many huge blows the Kiev junta is sustaining that they have lost any perspective and sanity, if there indeed was any.
Their masters across the ocean either left them hanging or don’t really know what to do with them. Poroshenko and Kiev government must somehow distract people in Ukraine and abroad from multiple scandals and problems.
- Blockade of Donbass, which has resulted in dozens of factory shut-downs, power shortages, unemployment and risk of nuclear power plant implosions.
- Attacks and Kiev sanctions against Russian banks.
- Return Russian ban on money transfers to Ukraine. Read my article: Lada Ray’s Ukraine Update: Russian Duma Bans Money Transfers to Ukraine.
- Russia’s recognition of LDPR passports, which is a major humiliation for Kiev. It is tremendous propaganda for LDPR and against ukro-nazi Kiev regime. Read DPR ultimatum to oligarchs: Pay taxes or nationalization. Russia recognizes LDPR passports; to introduce visa regime for Ukraine.
But there is more! Yet another reason is to distract the world, especially Europeans, from the unfolding Eurovision scandal.
Welcome to Kiev Eurovision – be sure to wear your bulletproof vest!
World’s largest song contest, Eurovision 2017, will take place in Ukraine, following the scandalous win in 2016 of a Crimean Tartar/Ukrainian singer Jamala. There had been a lot of doubt Kiev would be able to host the event adequately and on time. Yet, for political reasons European organizers allowed Kiev to go ahead with the show. I’ll leave aside the merits of Eurovision as a contest. In truth, I think it’s extremely subpar. It has also been turned into a hysterical political farce, when singers aren’t judged on merit but propelled forward or held back by politically charged juries, based on the agenda of the West.
Voices sounded in Russia for years to pull out of Eurovision; these voices were especially persistent this year. Kiev continuously threatened to ban Russian representative – in violation of contest rules. Still, Russia decided to send a singer, a young, severely handicapped woman in a wheelchair with a beautiful voice, Yulia Samoylova. Among other achievements, Yulia sang at the opening of Sochi Paralympics. Yulia may have a very short time to live and she has sacrificed a lot to prepare for the contest. For this courageous young woman this is a huge dream and only chance to participate in a major international event, something that will fill her heart with joy for the rest of her short life.
Yulia Samoylova song – Flame Is Burning (Russia) Eurovision 2017 entry
A couple of days ago Kiev announced that Yulia Samoylova is banned from Eurovision contest and from entry into Ukraine for 5 years because she recently performed in Crimea. Despite gross violation of the law, OSCE has declared they see no problem. The organizers of Eurovision are trying to bury the scandal, while Western MSM has collectively developed sudden blindness.
I’ve just recalled the out-of-this-world howling that took place before the Sochi Olympics about alleged gays’ rights violations in Russia. In response, Russians went out of their way to welcome everyone, including gays, who were parading around Sochi to the welcoming smiles of their Russian hosts.
Just imagine if a cripple in a wheelchair was denied participation in an international event in Russia. The stink from the ‘civilized world’ would have been heard for years. Here, not a single voice of any European ‘human rights’ or ‘handicapped defense’ organization. Complete silence. Where are petitions, protests and boycott of Kiev Eurovision?
In addition, Kiev is banning Armenian participant because she also performed in Crimea. Despite the attempts to hush the scandal, it seems to be growing and gathering steam, both in Ukraine and abroad. Kiev needs to distract the world from this scandal. In their mind it appears to be a good idea to kill Voronenkov and then blame it on Russia.
I promised to tell you how it would backfire. Killing someone in the very center of Kiev, where the country’s richest reside and posh hotels are located, shortly before Eurovision… Not a very good advertisement for the foreign guests. Incidentally, Premier Palace, the hotel where Voronenkov was killed, is reportedly booked by a large number of Eurovision guests and participants.
In other words, welcome to Kiev Eurovision! Make sure you bring your guns and bulletproof vests!
Why choosing Yulia Samoylova was genius
This isn’t the focus of this report, but let me just tell you briefly that choosing Yulia Samoylova for Kiev Eurovision was a stroke of genius, and I didn’t expect any less of Russia. Apart from Yulia’s obvious gift, she is a great choice because no matter what Kiev junta does, they lose. If they ban her, the aftertaste will linger for a long time, regardless of how much they try to hush it up, and the true colors of the Kiev regime will become obvious even to those in the EU who are in complete denial. This will continue the process of the US/EU distancing from Kiev, accompanied by a gradual withdrawal of support. If Yulia Samoylova is allowed to compete, the controversy created by Kiev has made her so popular that I won’t be surprised if she wins. That will be a pinnacle of humiliation for the Russophobic Kiev junta and ukro-nazis.
And last and most important reason for the Voronenkov false flag…
Trump to begin financial audit of the Poroshenko government
As predicted, Trump is sending signals that he wants to drop Ukraine like an old potato. The Kissinger Plan is in effect. Learn all about the secret Kissinger Plan in LADA RAY WEBINAR WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
EU is busy with own problems and can’t wait to take off anti-Russian sanctions. Kiev tries everything to persuade Europe to keep those sanctions for as long as possible.
How does Kiev benefit? They don’t. Kiev junta consists of petty people; they do it simply out of spite. In their small minds they must do it to keep Russia down.
This intel is from Viktoria Shilova, ex-Dnepropetrovsk deputy, leader of the all-Ukraine AntiWar movement and leader of Ukraine’s Social Party:
Trump has authorized a comprehensive audit of all those billions US spent on ‘subverting’ Ukraine. This includes whatever Nuland, Clinton, Kerry, Biden, CIA and Obama ‘invested’ in regime change in Ukraine, US taxpayer money that went to train Ukraine media, NGOs, ukro-nazi battalions in Western Ukraine, to develop anti-Russian propaganda, payoffs to politicians and military. The number being floated is about $10 billion. There is a suspicion that most of it was stolen.
Poroshenko, Kiev junta and all those who got fat on Ukraine’s tragedy know very well where this money is. They are trying very hard to distract the world and to, yet again, redirect the US and EU attention towards ‘bad Russia.’ It worked before. But this time, it will backfire.
Stay tuned for
THOROUGH, COMPREHENSIVE & PRACTICAL WRITTEN REPORT,
BASED ON LADA RAY’S NEW GEO-CALIBRATIONS
Coming Monday, March 27, 2017!
Support Lada’s work! DONATE
Much like the Mosul offensive in Iraq was supposed to be victoriously accomplished in time for US Presidential Elections on November 8, 2016, to give Hillary a boost, various terrorist plots in Russia and Donetsk were also planned to be completed by then for the same purpose. Plus, of course the big one: punish Russia.
We know that Mosul push went nowhere. No ‘Mission accomplished’ in Iraq.
Now let’s see what came out of multiple terrorist attempts in Russia.
This is a follow up to my recent Putin Makes His Move! Russian Economy Minister Alexey Ulyukaev Arrested for Corruption.
FSB FOILS MAJOR TERROR ATTACKS
Just days prior to US Elections on November 8, FSB began announcing detention of suspected terrorists and spies. Subversive cells’ arrests are continuing in Russia and Donetsk.
CIA and Kiev junta’s attempts to sabotage and terrorize CRIMEA turn sour
You may recall that several months ago there was a major attempt by Ukraine to infiltrate Crimea with its subversive operatives, who were supposed to bomb crucial infrastructure objects in order to create a humanitarian catastrophe. Confessions by said subversives, who turned out to be career officers of Ukrainian army, revealed that their acts were specifically aimed at disrupting Russian Duma Elections 2016.
More about it in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 11: ALL ABOUT 2016 RUSSIAN DUMA ELECTIONS.
Objects to be bombed included chemical and power plants, as well as hospitals and the famous Crimean Bridge. One-of-a-kind engineering feat, the massive Crimean Bridge, has been dubbed the project of the century. It will connect Crimea with mainland Russia through the Kerch Peninsula, bypassing Ukraine and, thus, alleviating pressure on Crimea. The construction is projected to be completed by the end of 2017-18.
The Ukraine terrorists were also supposed to mass-poison potable water. Crimea suffers from water shortage after in 2014 the Kiev junta destroyed the only ample water source, The North Crimean Canal, running through Ukraine and built by the USSR. You may recall that in August there were real battles on the border, when Kiev military attempted a veritable invasion into Crimean territory. While deflecting the multiple attacks and arresting armed subversive groups near the border, FSB and Russian Border Guard lost two men.
In late October – early November, another major terror group was arrested. This time the subversive acts were aimed at aiding Hillary and undermining Trump during US Elections. The head of this subversive group is a colonel of Ukraine GUR (State Office of Intelligence). It has to be noted that Russian Intelligence is called GRU (State Intelligence Office). It appears that the Ukraine GUR name was parroted after Russian, but so it wouldn’t seem too blatant, the letters were changed around.
Some of these groups were embedded since 2014, as sleeper cells. They were left behind by Kiev as Crimea transitioned to Russia, with stated purpose of later aiding the future attack on Crimea from within. Others infiltrated into Crimea in the past couple of years, taking advantage of the fact that the border between Ukraine and Crimea is still easily crossed, due to tight connections between the people on both sides.
The original Plan A was for Ukraine, US, and – as they saw it at the time – Turkey, to attack Crimea together and take it back from Russia. Turkey was supposed to have a pivotal role, manipulating the Turkish discontent with the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. Turkish nationalist groups and Crimean Tartar terrorists, armed by Turkey, began amassing in Kherson Oblast bordering Crimea on the Ukraine side.
But there was a problem: Putin for years managed to smartly neutralize Turkey and Erdogan by lucrative trade deals. To accomplish the US/Kiev plan (Qatar and Saudis were also in on the hit), Turkey needed to be tied to Ukraine-US alliance by blood, so there would be no turning back to good relations with Russia. Turkey had to be ‘subverted’ so a rift between Turkey and Russia would become irreparable.
This was attempted through the downing of the Russian Su24 in Syria in 2015 by the Turkish army. That incident, which shocked Russians and was likened by Putin to a knife in the back, nearly did put a stop to Russia-Turkey cooperation. But that turned out to be insufficient. Both Putin and Erdogan turned out too smart. Not to mention, Russian Intelligence turned out significantly ahead of the CIA.
Having figured out what was happening, Erdogan (with Russian intel’s help?) fired the main US asset in his government, PM Davutoglu (an ethnic Crimean Tartar). He also made insistent steps to reconcile with Russia. He had the intermediary help from Kazakh President Nazarbayev, who served as a bridge. When it was discovered that Erdogan is attempting to win back Putin’s friendship, a coup against him was organized by Turkish army officers on CIA payroll. Erdogan escaped capture and Gaddafi-like end by minutes, because Putin authorized Russian Intelligence to send him a timely warning.
The coup failed and past relations with Russia, including the most important element, energy cooperation and Turkish Stream, are being restored. Meanwhile, the plot backfired and Turkey-NATO cooperation is slowly but surely dying. Give NATO just a few years and it’ll be dead.
Incidentally, for his help in restoring Turkey-Russia relations, Nazarbayev was made pay through a color revolution attempt, which, of course, failed.
All about Turkey, how Russians warned Erdogan of the military coup, how the coup failed, how relations were reconciled and US/NATO lost Turkey as ally read in top-rated:
All about Kazakhstan color revolution attempt and terror attacks, as well as color revolution attempts in Armenia and other EAEU states, who and why organized them:
Video ESR9 Attack on Kazakhstan: Who Destabilizes Eurasian Union? (includes video of attempted attacks).
In the end, it became clear that Russia wasn’t destroyed economically through sanctions, oil price drop and ruble attacks, as US promised Kiev junta since 2014. Turkish gambit didn’t work out either.
And the result is, as I predicted in 2014! US is sick and tired of the whiny and inept Kiev and Poroshenko, while Kiev and Ukrainians are mad at US and EU for betrayal. As I was predicting since the VERY BEGINNING of the Ukraine saga: EU and US don’t know how to drop Ukraine as a hot potato, or squeezed out lemon they have no use for. When Trump takes office, my prediction will be complete: US will drop Ukraine.
You all recall one of my big 2014 predictions: Ukraine will begin turning away from the West and back towards Russia in 2016-18. By the end of 2018, this process will be complete.
And in this regard, also recall what I said in 2014: it’ll be all of Ukraine, not bits and pieces, as many suggested. No one seemed to hear me at the time, as everyone was bent on dividing Ukraine. Nope, it’ll be ALL of Ukraine. Possibly minus a few tiny pieces in the West, but even that is unlikely. This is my prediction since 2014 and it remains so. If my track record is any indication, you will see this prediction come true, as so many others before.
Having been denied the real war in Crimea, Kiev junta had no choice but to go to Plan B: subversive terror attacks. But, as many may know, Russian FSB and Intelligence are, shall we say, in the world’s top 2, if not 1. As Ukraine subversives activated, they began being apprehended.
Full video of one of the latest subversive’s arrests in Crimea, released by FSB:
Donetsk and Lugansk
Similar situation developed in Donetsk, capital of DNR (Eng: DPR). In the past 2-3 weeks MGB of DNR arrested at least 2 separate ukro-nazi and Ukraine subversive groups on its territory. MGB means Ministry of State Security. These groups were prepared to begin acts of terror and sabotage, similar to Crimea. Also detained were the suspected assassins of the legendary Donetsk commander Motorola, with the telling name «Misanthropic Division». Video in Russian about ukro-nazi «Misanthropic Division» and who they are: Кто такие «Misanthropic Division»? О предполагаемых убийцах Моторолы.
This is the video of the arrest of six alleged Motorola assassins from «Misanthropic Division», who bragged about it online:
The latest: also LNR (Lugansk) announced that they uncovered a plot to blow up the Schastie power plant. The canal feeding water to the power plant in question was mined by the Ukraine subversives. VIDEO announcement.
Major op in Moscow and St. Petersburg
In St. Petersburg and Moscow terrorist sleeper cells’ arrests continue. Since prior to US Elections, almost daily FSB has been detaining dozens of subversives.
Videos from various sources about detentions of subversives in St.Pete and Moscow. It has been confirmed that they were all members of ISIL, originally from Central Asia (in other words, members of these cells were Uzbeks, Tajiks, Kyrgyzs, Turkmens). They were preparing bombings in public places in both capitals. Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan special services aided in the arrests.
Collusion between ISIL, Kiev and CIA
We know that terror attacks in Crimea, Donetsk and Russia mainland were planned simultaneously. This clearly denotes a collusion between ISIL, Kiev junta and CIA. As if we needed more proof of that…
CIA evacuating from Kiev to Romania
I was asked whether it was true that CIA operatives were evacuating from Kiev. Yes, it’s true. In 2014 CIA took over the upper 4th floor of the SBU building in Kiev, where Ukrainians were banned from entering. American flag flew over that Ukrainian government building. After Trump election and arrests of subversives in Russia, CIA operatives have hastily evacuated all their papers and moved to Romania. Only CIA analysts (read surveillance, spies-monitors) remain in Kiev.
I can tell you more. This reminds me of one of the most shameful pages in human history: WWII. Anticipating the end, in 1944 Hitler Nazis were hastily burning and evacuating their papers and leaving behind sleeper cells to attack Russia later from within. Some of these cells were the Bandera ukro-nazis trained and left behind in Ukraine. It is the heirs of those Bandera followers who spread fascism all over Ukraine and executed the 2014 coup.
Fast-forward to the end of 2016. History repeats! Anticipating the beginning of the end, both CIA and Kiev junta are now busy embedding long-term sleeper cells all over Ukraine.
Odessa and Saakashvili resignation
In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT of 3/31/16, I predicted that Saakashvili would only be the governor of Odessa till 2017. My exact words were: ‘Meet international criminal, ex-president of Georgia and US agent, Mikhail Saakashvili, governor of Odessa 2015-2017.’ You can read these words in the ESR8 description by clicking above link. In the report you can further read why I said that. Saakashvili resigned his post on November 7, 2016 (this sly fox wanted to position himself for the new US president). Saakashvili resignation will officially go through in the beginning of 2017, right on the dot, per my prediction.
Maidan 3.0 developing in Kiev
Protests headed by opposition leaders Evgeny Muraev and Rabinovich (Party Za Zhisn’ -For Life) demand the sacking of the head of Central Bank Gontareva and Ukraine currency back at pre-2014-coup rate of 8 grivnas per dollar.
Sure, keep dreaming… These are, of course, purely populist slogans. You can’t have strong currency after you’ve destroyed your economy. The problem is also that a catastrophic winter is ahead, while utilities charges keep climbing. Some Ukrainians won’t survive this winter.
MY PLANS FOR NEXT FEW WEEKS
How long has Poroshenko and Kiev junta got? Not too long now. What should we expect in Ukraine next? Secession movements in Western Ukraine? Will Maidan 3.0 materialize? Who’s really protesting against whom? I’ll discuss all this in a separate video, which will be released soon.
Next week I’ll also have a new piece (it’ll be either an article or a video) on the spectacular turnaround in Moldova and Bulgaria elections – the situation is developing exactly as predicted in ESR8 and my earlier Moldova articles.
I plan to go over the heating up situation in Pridnestrovie, as well. The sly Putin’s plan re. Pridnestrovie and Moldova and what to expect in the region in the next few years. (Also watch video: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)
Following my Trump win prediction coming true, I plan a follow up video on Trump, whether Hillary will go to jail, and more.

Lada Ray PREDICTIONS
Dear friends and followers!
Thank you for your wonderful continued support and donations!
I really appreciate it!
Remember my prediction, dated November 24, 2015?
“And now, a little preliminary prediction for the USA’s presidential elections 2016. I am saving the full prediction for the US elections for 2016, when I’ll do a complete prediction about USA as part on a new Earth Shift Report. But I will give you a sneak peek, which is tied to the Russian jet downing in Syria.
Here is my prediction about US elections:
AS A RESULT OF ALL THE FAILURES AND EMBARRASSMENTS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, DEMOCRATS WILL LOSE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.”
Read complete predictions in Explosive Consequences of Turkey Downing Russian Su-24 Jet in Syria – Complete Analysis and Predictions!
Recall also what I said in Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. I said that if you care about the future of the US and the world, whatever you do, don’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
The missing Hillary Clinton’s emails may be in the Kremlin’s possession. According to US MSM, there is a debate between Russian Foreign Ministry and Intelligence whether to release these 20,000 emails they had hacked, or not. I generally wouldn’t hold my breath for US MSM’s accuracy, but in this case it’s plausible.
I predicted many times previously that those who orchestrated Ukraine coup, those who continue moving NATO towards Russian borders and those who supported ISIS and Erdogan in Syria would have hell to pay. Let’s recall that Clinton was US Secretary of State under Obama and that she is presently the biggest hawk out there.
Another interesting detail, confirming what I’ve said, is Kerry’s recent visit to Moscow. A few months ago, out of the blue, Kerry asked for an unscheduled Lavrov and Putin’s audience. He arrived to Moscow, carrying a guitar and a mysterious suitcase he didn’t entrust to anyone. The contents of the mystery suitcase became the subject of a Putin’s joke, who remarked that if Kerry was carrying billions of dollars as a bribe, then Russia wasn’t for sale. Incidentally, the visit took place right after the Rostov plane catastrophe, when a hoax was floating around, postulating that on board there was a female CIA agent carrying millions of dollars as a bribe for FSB. Kerry responded that he brought a gift, which they would be pleased to see.
It later turned out that he brought a guitar, which he played for Sergey Lavrov as a gift for his birthday. After Kerry came back to the US, he unexpectedly began defending Russia’s actions in Syria during a Congress hearing, causing confusion in the ranks of Russophobic Washington DC. Russian Foreign Ministry’s official rep Maria Zakharova praised Kerry and even dedicated a poem to him.
Let me translate all this from secret diplomatic slang: Regardless of what else Kerry brought to Moscow in his suitcase, he definitely brought an olive branch and a signal that he wanted to make deals. How far those deals have gone? Certain concessions by the US were made regarding Ukraine and Syria.
USA has already backed off in Syria, as we clearly see. In Ukraine it will take much longer and it will be extremely gradual, so US wouldn’t lose face (prediction: it will still lose it, but later). Recall my original prediction Ukraine turnaround will occur slowly over the period of 2016-2018. We are right on schedule.
Kerry also came to distance himself from the White House, Pentagon and Hillary. Russians responded by signaling that they appreciated that and that they would welcome any Americans who were ready to negotiate.
Before you listen to videos below, let me predict one more thing. Watch what happens in the next few months, before the US elections! You’ll see a lot of games being played. You’ll see some forces trying to protect Hillary and delay the FBI investigation. You’ll see it underplayed, etc, etc.
However, the actual investigation doesn’t even matter. The very thought that USA could end up in the hands of a commander-in-chief who is so irresponsible that she has taken secret emails to read in her home’s comfort, while sipping tea and lounging on a couch, thus potentially jeopardizing the country’s security, will make many Americans vote for anyone, but Hillary Clinton.
Full circle back to my predictions.

A woman casts her ballot during a snap presidential election in the village of Tuzdybastau, Kazakhstan, April 26, 2015. (Reuters / Shamil Zhumatov)
This post is part of
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 1 double feature+
From RT: “Exit polls show near 100 percent support for incumbent Kazakh leader Nursultan Nazarbayev in a snap presidential election in the central Asian country. Exit polls have confirmed Nazarbayev has won about 97.5 percent of the vote, while there was a voter turnout of over 95 percent. International and local observers at polling stations across the country have reported no significant violations. There were a total of 858 observers from 19 countries present.
Nazarbayev’s rule is contested by two other candidates, the leader of the Communist party and the leader of the state labor unions federation. However, they are widely seen as non-competitive, with Nazarbayev clinching 95 percent of the votes in the previous election in 2011. Nursultan Nazarbayev, 75, is often accused of suppressing opposition and freedom of speech. In 2014, the French Geopolitical Crime Observatory gave him the title ‘Dictator of the Year’, beating Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as well as three toppled leaders: Tunisian Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak and Haitian Jean-Claude Duvalier. Opposition journalists accuse him of cultivating a personality cult, to which he owes his high election results. Nazarbayev is promising to take his country into the world’s top 30 best-developed countries.
“Should Kazakhs show me their trust again, my first act will naturally be to create a committee on implementing five constitutional reforms,” he said. Those reforms are aimed at “not letting the global crisis negatively affect [Kazakhstan’s] development, to maintain the speed of growth and prepare grounds for a new leap ahead.” Link to post.
Russian: В Казахстане прошли досрочные президентские выборы, в которых участвуют три кандидата: президент Нурсултан Назарбаев, руководящий страной с 1989 года, секретарь ЦК Коммунистической народной партии Тургун Сыздыков и председатель федерации профсоюзов Абельгази Кусаинов. “В Казахстане в дружбе и согласии проживает более 130 народностей и национальностей: 50%казахи,30%русские,около 5%немцы и остальные 15% украинцы,белорусы,узбеки,татары и т.д.”
English: Snap presidential elections ended in Kazakhstan. Three candidates participated: current president Nursultan Nazarbayev – leader of the country since 1989; leader of the Kazakh Communist Party Turgun Sizdikov; head of the country’s labor union federation Abelgazi Kusainov.
According to my Kazakh sources, and I quote: ‘in Kazakhstan, in friendship and accord live 130 different nationalities: 50% Kazakhs, 30% Russians, 5% Germans; the remaining 15% are Ukrainians, Belorussians, Uzbeks, Tatars, etc.’
Nazarbayev’s Kazakh nickname is ‘Elbasi,’ which translates as the ‘voice of the people’ or ‘head of the people.’
I hear that this time even those who usually don’t bother, went to vote, the majority – for Nazarbayev. The reason: people want stability. Nazarbayev means just that for his people. The worry for many is that he is getting on with years. However, to this date, there is no worthy substitute for him in his country. I do hear the name of Tasmaganbetov (Тасмаганбетов) as potential successor.
More from my Kazakh sources: people also talk about the fact that they don’t even know other candidates, what they want, what their plan is, in other words, they appear to the people being neither here nor there. Is it because they aren’t given equal opportunity to promote themselves, or is it because there is simply no contest?
About 100 initial candidates entered the race, with 3 qualifying for the elections. It is rumored that Nazarbayev didn’t want to run any more, but that his party Nur Otan (Нур Отан) insisted he runs again. “People want peace and order, it’s dangerous to change anything in the country now” – “Народ хочет мира и порядка. Сейчас опасно что-либо менять в курсе страны.”
As you know from my previous articles, LadaRayLive videos and interviews, Kazakhstan is a member of the Eurasian Union together with Russia and Belarus; member of SCO with Russia, China, etc.; member of the Caspian Club, with Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan; one of the biggest allies of Russia, with its policies directed towards closer ties. Kazakhstan will also play a role in the new Eurasian Silk Road Project and in the anti-petrodollar revolution. There is much more about all that in: Global Consequences: Russia Announces Eurasian Union and New Currency Altyn. This is video report with lots more info and pics.
Left to right: Belarus president Lukashenko, Kazakh president Nazarbayev, Vladimir Putin
The global geopolitical and mystical role of Kazakhstan and personally Nazarbayev cannot be underestimated. I said previously in this interview, PUTIN’S DISAPPEARANCE AND THE NEW SILK ROAD, that Kazakhstan together with Belarus, serves as a support for Putin and Russia in the rebalancing of the world, Belarus representing the western support and Kazakhstan the eastern one. See PREDICTIONS for more about Russia’s rebalancing role.
(I highly recommend you also take a look at Earth Shift Report 1: Is Putin Part of NWO? In it you will find a very interesting piece about Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, with pics. In it, the myth that Astana is the new NWO capital is debunked.)
The futuristic Astana
All the above makes Kazakhstan a prime candidate for color revolution. Look at Ukraine: the bloody maidan and coup of 2014 followed the announcement by Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus of the formation of the Eurasian Union. It was necessary to pry Ukraine away from Russia and prevent Ukraine from joining the union.
Many prior attempts to organize a color revolution in Russia have failed. Seeing that 2012 protests on Moscow’s Bolotnaya Square brought no result, those who are behind color revolutions all over the world, changed their tactic. They organized the assassination of Boris Nemtsov. (Read: Lada’s Investigation: Who Benefits from the Death of the Russian Opposition Leader Boris Nemtsov?)
Nemtsov himself was hardly popular and largely overlooked in Russia, being just a deputy of the Yaroslavl’ city council, a small city near Moscow. His only value was in his death. That death had to be as loud and as prominent as possible. Hence shocking and dramatic assassination next to the Red Square and 200 meters from the Kremlin’s main Spasskaya Tower. They were hoping that Nemtsov’s mourning may be turned into a bloodbath next to the Kremlin, the seat of the Russian President.
During the ‘march in memory of Boris Nemtsov’ organized by opposition and authorized by Moscow authorities to take place next to the Red Square, several Ukrainian politicians and known provocateurs were detained, including a Rada Deputy who was filmed dancing on burned bodies on Odessa’s Kulikovo Polie during the May 2, 2014. With them, these people had American dollars in small denominations, which were supposed to be used for payment to violent thugs, who would turn the peaceful commemoration into a blood bath. They were planning on re-creating the Kiev maidan 2014, when 20,000 ‘peaceful’ protesters, many of whom were used, and even more of whom were simply bought, camouflaged 2,000 choice militants and trained thugs, who were there to provoke violence by attacking and burning police. As we know, it worked out very well in Kiev.
Not so in Moscow. After ringleaders wannabe were detained (and let go after the fact), there was no one to direct the thugs. Russian FSB and OMON also arrested an undisclosed number of suspected militants from Ukraine, Chechnya, Georgia, Baltics. As a result, no maidan in Russia.
While Belarus and Kazakhstan are doing pretty well on this front too, the danger of a color revolution is still high in Armenia and Kyrgyzstan – the new members of Eurasian Union (Kyrgyzstan officially to join in May 2015), and well as in Tajikistan – a prospective member.
It has to be noted that the attack on Eurasian Union states is, and will continue being, multi-prong. Let’s call it a hybrid war. It is understood that Ukraine maidan and the ukro-nazi junta were organized to prevent Ukraine from joining Eurasian Union and to create an area of permanent instability on Russia’s borders. It worked only partially, but unfortunately, my prediction that Ukraine economy would be completely destroyed in the process is coming true all too well.
More about Ukraine and the dirty mechanics of the euro-maidan in these two Earth Shift Reports:
Armenia and Kyrgyzstan are now balancing an inch from their own color revolutions. My prediction is: attempts to create color revolutions will not succeed in either of these countries. Unfortunately these attempts do succeed in creating distractions, economic hardship, and slowing down the process of building the Eurasian Union.
Another devilish goal they have is to create animosity and hatred between countries, nationalities and peoples. Recent, very strange events in Armenia, when a Russian soldier knocked on a door to ask for water and supposedly killed an Armenian family, led to an explosion of anti-Russian protests and demands that Russian military base be removed. The event practically reeked of false flag. Fortunately, the Russian government acted in a very level-headed manner, promising full trial disclosure. The majority of the population didn’t support the Russian base closure demands and they died down. However, attempts to destabilize Armenia continue.
The same story is true for Kyrgyzstan. According to my data, in small Kyrgyzstan, population 5.72 million, there are 17,000 Western and Western-financed NGOs!! As we know, Western NGOs, financed by the US Endowment for Democracy, Soros, US State Dept, and others, are the instrument of color revolutions.
Prediction: as I said, there will be no success in organizing such color revolution in Kyrgyzstan. But attempts will continue for the foreseeable future, until all these countries manage to create a strong joint political, economic and defence system. This will only be possible as a result of Eurasian Union and the New Silk Road project.
Finally, the biggest intrigue: why were these snap Kazakh elections conducted one year before term, especially considering Nazarbayev was guaranteed a win? The reason is the same as above: color revolution and potential economic crisis inflicted via currency manipulation. Last year, Kazakhstan already went through a major devaluation (25% or more) of Tenge, its currency. It’s still nothing compared to the devaluation of the Russian currency, following the attack on the Ruble in December 2014. I’ll write more about that and what will happen soon, in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: Game of Rubles.
Anticipating that attempts to destabilize the country economically and politically will continue, and that possible hardship is coming, Nazarbayev and his advisors decided to do preemptive elections now, when the country is relatively stable. Organizing snap elections also provided another advantage. Kazakhstan knows they are in line for a maidan of their own. They have their own Western-sponsored NGOs and their own opposition.
By the way, on FT when we refer to ‘opposition.’ we mean practically without exception, Western-paid and Western-trained opposition.
Nazarbayev and his people know (a little birdie must have whispered this advice into their ear) that while US State Dept, CIA and Victoria Nuland are busy with Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia, they have a reprieve. Doing snap elections during this period means that Nuland won’t get to Astana on time and local opposition won’t be able to organize themselves.
It turned out they were right.
Incidentally, it is known that US and their allies are preparing a color revolution in Russia for 2018, in the attempt to sabotage Russian presidential elections. Also, preparations are underway to sabotage 2016 Russian Duma elections. Russians aren’t asleep; defences are being prepared. None of this will work.

I said on various occasions that attempts to destabilize the situation in Russia, and various provocations against Russia, will continue. In January, I also said that we should expect a massive false flag, possibly something to do with killing of major politicians. I, as many others, was watching Ukraine for that. But following the rule that watched pot never boils, while we were looking at Ukraine, it happened in Moscow.
However, there still is a very clear connection to Ukraine. Read about that below.
Today, on March 1, the Russian pro-West neo-liberal opposition, together with its leaders Boris Nemtsov, leader of the right-wing party Parnas, and Alexei Navalny, planed a mass anti-Putin rally in Moscow. Just less than 2 days before that Boris Nemtsov was shot with six bullets into his back from a passing car, while strolling near Kremlin with his girlfriend, a Ukrainian model who just flew in from Kiev.
Boris Nemtsov isn’t just any politician. In 1990, when it was still the USSR, he was elected to then Russian parliament at the age of 31. At 32 he became the youngest governor in Russia. As governor of the large industrial region of Nizhny Novgorod, Nemtsov presided over the 1990s privatization. In 1997 he became deputy PM of Russia, being so close to Yeltsin that he was practically considered as Yeltsin’s son and heir to the Russian presidency.
Then a rift happened. Nemtsov resigned and created The Right Block party. His party soon fell out of voters’ favor. He made a number of crucial mistakes and bad decisions, which put him in hard opposition to the Russian government. Despite being unable to get through the threshold for Duma elections, he was considered the most likable and popular neo-liberal opposition leader.
As Nemtsov turned into a poster boy of the hard-core anti-Putin pro-West opposition, he also became personal advisor and good friend to the 2004 Orange Revolution executor and former pro-US president of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko. That didn’t win him any fans in Russia. Nemtsov has been equally close to the present Kiev junta leadership.
That said, people also note that Nemtsov was honest, sincere and uncompromising in his views and that he was incorruptible. Because of that, he wasn’t a rich man. Some have been comparing his political career to that of Trotsky. Of course, it has to be remembered that the rule in Russia is to say only good things about the dead, or nothing – so take the above with a grain of salt.
At the same time, it is a well-known fact that all oppositioners in Russia have always been ‘fed’ and financed by Western NGOs, Soros and US State Department. They regularly attend meetings and have private discussions with US ambassador, inside the US embassy in Moscow. It’s anyone’s guess what they talk about. Nemtsov was a frequent guest at the US embassy.
Another truth that should never be overlooked is that he, as governor and Russia’s deputy PM/part of Yeltsin’s staff, contributed a great deal to the catastrophic privatization and the destruction of Russian economy in the 1990s. History will judge his real contribution to the country – good or bad. My impression is that overall, he was a harmful and negative influence on the country and economy.
Per my latest posts and YT videos, US and Kiev junta were unable to destabilize Russia and take over entire Ukraine as they planned. An attempt to destabilize Russian economy through the attack on the ruble and anti-Russian sanctions didn’t bring the desired results either (the Earth Shift Report on this conspiracy is coming).
Liberal opposition, despite generous contributions by the US State Department and Western NGOs, is unable to get enough votes to get into the Duma; its rallies attract fewer and fewer people, far below the numbers they need in order to start a Kiev-like maidan revolution in Russia.
Of course in view of all the above, the killing of one of the leaders of the opposition cannot be a coincidence. As usual, the question to ask is: WHO BENEFITS? And who doesn’t?
It doesn’t take a genius to see that certainly Putin, Russian government and political class do not benefit at all. It reflects badly on FSB and police, and Russian government again has to endure attacks from the West. Therefore, they have to be total morons to do such a thing in order to give the West yet another opportunity to malign Russia and Putin. Needless to say, Putin and his people aren’t morons.
As my readers know, I don’t watch or read Western MSM, but even I hear that as a result of the Nemtsov killing, the anti-Russian howling is on par, or even worse, than during MH17 downing last July.
But this is where it gets interesting. Let’s see who clearly benefits:
1. USA and Anglo-American elites.
I wouldn’t say the West in general benefits, because there is a clear rift between the positions of France and Germany, as well as the majority of southern/western Europe, vs. US and UK joined by a few of their lapdogs, such and Poland and the Baltics.
The anti-Russian sentiment in the EU started slowly subsiding as Berlin-Paris and Moscow are trying to work together on Ukraine peace. Because there is a growing rift between US and EU, US needs desperately to re-awaken the anti-Russian sentiment and animosity between EU and Russia and to ‘re-subdue’ Western Europe to its will. US cannot afford NOT to have EU firmly in its corner as it would further weaken the US empire and petrodollar. But EU is slowly but surely breaking away.
What does US want to accomplish with this false flag? US wants a bloody color revolution in Russia; they want destabilization with eventual break up of Russia, in order to take Russia over economically and militarily. US cannot win a hot war against Russia, therefore, the only way is to blow up the country from within.
The added bonus for the US is that this assassination also serves as a warning for those EU politicians who may be starting to doubt the ‘US party line.’
Therefore, the biggest beneficiary of the Nemtsov tragedy is the US, with UK in tow. Let’s also remember that US has the means, vast black black ops experience, and all the dollars in the world to execute such assassination.
2. Ukraine and Kiev junta benefit tremendously. Russia is a huge irritant for them. Russia is in their way of trying to conquer Donbass. They think that if Russia is busy with color revolution on Moscow streets, then Kiev junta is free to resume the killing of the Donbass people. In addition, the revenge scenario for Crimea, Donbass, and all other Kiev’s real or perceived humiliations, is equally plausible.
However, the Ukraine junta’s SBU (security services) has much less experience and means than the US in executing such provocation. They certainly have fewer brains – remember the botched MH17 false flag in Ukraine?
The plus for the Kiev junta is that they may already have people on the ground in Moscow, Ukrainians speak Russian and blend in best.
3. Separately, far right ukro-nazi parties and battalions, who are not accepting Minsk peace agreements, could conceivably execute the killing on their own to provoke animosity, conflict and maidan in Moscow. And of course, revenge for losses and humiliations.
But it is less likely they would do so on their own. Ukro-nazis may be behind this as executioners, but they most likely would be acting on behalf of Kiev and US. Could Kiev be using ukro-nazis for that? It is less likely, as ukro-nazis are unruly and undisciplined.
It’s much more likely that SBU is using its people – probably Ukrainian black ops trained by US.
4. The anti-Putin opposition itself may also benefit, at least on some levels, although opposition politicians say that they couldn’t possibly do something like that. But surely, there always are rotten apples who would. Since the opposition’s influence is waning and they are unable to convince people to dislike Putin, whose rating is at 86% as of now, the only way to spur people into a color revolution may be a false flag such as this.
What I personally see:
In all likelihood, the killing was organized by US and Kiev jointly. I think the involvement of the opposition to provoke a maidan in Moscow is very minimal as it seems there is no upside here for them. As of now a lot of people look at them with suspicion that they may be behind it. Plus, they lost their most charismatic leader.
I believe that US and Kiev jointly needed to generate this false flag in order to start a new wave of anti-Russian sentiment in the EU, in order to: 1. derail the peace process; 2. destabilize the situation in Russia; 3. vilify Russia; 4. strain Russia’s resources; 5. and of course, as a revenge for their failures and humiliations.
For that they have used Nemtsov as a sacrificial lamb. The goal is to manipulate the ‘naive’ Russian liberal opposition in order to ignite a bloody revolution in Moscow. This scenario isn’t that different from what happened on Kiev maidan in 2014, where masses were manipulated by western MSM, sold-out politicians, well-trained militants and snipers, into a bloody mess.
The place of the killing – 200 meters from the Kremlin – was also chosen for this purpose.
But as you will see below, there is a huge difference between Ukraine and Russia.
The attack was very well thought out. There were several killers. The 6 bullets were all from different manufacturers, to make it harder to trace, shot from different guns. 4 wounds were lethal. All were shot from the back, so the Ukrainian girlfriend would have plausible deniability and could honestly say that she saw nothing. It was dark and there were very few pedestrians. People seemed to have seen a white car, but couldn’t see who was in the car.
After a late dinner at one of the GUM cafes on Red Square, Nemtsov and his Ukrainian girlfriend were taking a stroll across the bridge in the direction of the Bolotnaya Square, where Nemtsov’s opposition had previous rallies, including the protest rallies in 2011-12, when liberals were trying to prevent the re-election of Vladimir Putin. Perhaps, the girlfriend asked him to show her that ‘famous historic place.’ It was extrmely easy to catch on to the couple on the deseted bridge, with perfect view of the Kremlin, but away from eye-witnesses.
The killing was styled to appear as the 90’s style mafia hit, very close to the style of the Vladimir Khodrokovsky’s crony Nevzlin, who is now hiding from prosecution in Israel. This was done possibly to confuse the investigation.
Incidentally, Nemtsov was a very independent person, who went anywhere he pleased, was always public and never used bodyguards, despite often getting death threats. Those who did the killing knew that.
The important detail is the presence of a girlfriend from Kiev, who flew in just previously. All experts say as one that usually during a professional contract killing such as this companions never survive. This one did – unharmed. She knew him for a couple of years, they say. Was she a CIA asset, who was making sure Nemtsov was kept on a leash? Or was she for real, but with the latest events in Ukraine either ukro-nazis or the junta SBU got to her and her family? Was she threatened or paid off to lead him into the spot where he was shot and she lived? Either way, the girlfriend from Kiev is a very suspicious detail.
Another very interesting detail: The color revolution in Russia was being prepared in 2011-12, in time for the Vladimir Putin re-election, and Boris Nemtsov was supposed to be one of the leaders. At that time, oligarch Boris Berezovsky was plotting it from his London mansion. He openly said that the best way to start a maidan in Russia was to execute ‘the right sacrificial lamb.’ Berezovsky considered the charismatic and popular Nemtsov the right candidate. Nemtsov knew that.
It’s interesting that Berezovsky himself became that sacrificial lamb a year later, after his plot failed. He was found in his London house after he ‘hung himself’ as UK investigators concluded, but with suspicious bruises on his neck. It turned out that just previously, Berezovsky passed a secret letter to Putin asking for pardon and promising to spill the beans on his UK handlers. Shortly after, he died. Seeing that, Russia made public Berezovsky’s letter to Putin, which made it impossible to pin this murder on Russia and Putin, as they did with Litvinenko a few years earlier. As a result, UK had to urgently come up with the suicide verdict, despite the dead give away of the neck bruises.
Out of all Russia’s pro-Western oppositioners, Nemtsov made the best sacrificial lamb in order to provoke violence. He was best loved and respected, being considered honest and incorruptible. Another leader, Kasyanov is very unpopular and hardly loved, and Navalny is under house arrest and is being watched by police patrol, whom he should thank as they have probably saved his life.
Vladimir Putin announced that he would keep the investigation into Nemtsov’s death under personal control. Today’s planned opposition rally was cancelled and instead, the Moscow administration authorized a march in Nemtsov’s memory in the area where he was shot, next to the Kremlin. This shows the strength of the Russian state and its confidence that they can keep order.
In another positive development, many leaders of the opposition, as well as all other politicians in Russia, are calling for unity and restrained actions during today’s march. Of course, in social media there are very ugly and volatile comments, calling for violence, revenge, revolution, etc. However, these are MOST DEFINITELY US and Kiev shills.
This false flag assassination is clearly a desperation move. I see this false flag backfiring on its organizers, just like the previous ones did.
This attempt to create mayhem in Russia will fail. There will be no color revolution or Kiev-style maidan in Russia, although, as I continue warning, the attempts by the US/West to create it will continue. As we see, they’ll stop at nothing to try to tip the balance in Russia into chaos.
Russian OMON and police are fully capable of keeping order. But Russian government and people must be very vigilant. Also see my video report about AntiMaidan:
As a result of this false flag, I see the Russian society further consolidating around Putin.
It seems no one in Russia – not even Russian liberals – is buying into the ‘hand of the Kremlin’ idea. I foresee that as a result of this provocation, some Russian liberals may finally see the light and change their views from pro-Kiev-junta and pro-US to a more pro-Russian patriotic and balanced stance. One thing is to fight corruption and another thing is to work to undermine the Russian state, whether willingly or unwillingly. I see more anti-Putin Russian liberals opening their eyes to the fact that they are being a destructive tool being used by the US/West for their ulterior motives.
P.S. As I was finishing this article, I saw the video, which confirmed what I said. Thousands of people gathered near Kremlin to pay respects to Boris Nemtsov, in a sea of Russian flags. The event was urgently authorised as an exception by the Moscow mayor. I notice it’s very well-organized, with lots of portable toilets and very tight security. As expected, everything is peaceful.

Clandestine US Wars – Operation Gladio B
In this post I’ve collected the best pieces of the puzzle for the mysterious Operation Gladio used by the US for many years in clandestine war against USSR and socialist countries. The whistle on #Gladio and #GladioB was blown by the FBI’s Sibel Edmonds, who was originally from Iran and Turkey and who specialized in the Middle East during her FBI tenure. After the end of the Soviet Union, all these rogues, militants, sociopaths, Turkish and Central Asian mafia godfathers – “babas,” employed and financed by the US, have been re-tooled and re-branded to be used: 1. in the manufactured “war on terror” 2. to try and destabilize US rivals: Russia and China.
For my childhood Cold War memories that compliment what Sibel is saying + my analysis of Why Russia isn’t playing the card of knowledge re. Gladio A and B? – scroll down to Part 3!

In this part Sibel talks about Turkish generals and colonels defecting to Russia and the implications thereof, namely that Russia is fully aware of Gladio and other US operations, including the foreign nature of the Chechen militants who were trained and implanted in Russia by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and US. Sibel expresses puzzlement why Russia is not using “the knowledge card.”
My Cold War childhood memories growing up in Odessa, USSR: I grew up in Odessa, which is across from Turkey on the Black Sea. I remember vividly from my early years during the Cold War days how we had military watch towers all over the coast. You go to the beach and from the corner of your eye you always see a watch tower. One summer, when I was 6 or 7, my relatives and I went to the beach around midnight to celebrate a family reunion, and before we knew it, we were blinded by giant projectors as people with dogs and guns appeared out of nowhere. We always lived with an implied “veiled threat from Turkey,” which at the time served as the unsinkable carrier and a secret US/NATO base in constant clandestine Western war against Russia. Turkey essentially was a corrupt country with no identity, serving the US lap dog role (unfortunately it still does). In Odessa, we had plenty of spy scandals – spies were actually caught on the beach attempting to infiltrate the Soviet Union. They would be caught straight in their diving suits having crossed the Odessa Bay underwater from a US or Turkish sub positioned in neutral waters. So, those watch towers did their job very well, and what Sibel talks about rings true on many levels.
Why is Russia ‘not playing this card,’ as Sibel puts it? Sibel may know the Middle East, but I know Russia. Russia IS playing the card of knowledge of what’s happening. They just do it smartly. They don’t make a noise because they have ongoing operations. Why would they announce what they are doing? To alert terrorists so they could escape? Russia also plays this card with the US, but behind the scenes, which is very astute. How – it’s complicated. But suffice it to say that we’ll be seeing more and more of shrinking US influence and more of rising Russian influence in Eurasia and all over the world. This is my prediction.
