My readers who follow me regularly know that I’ve dedicated a big part of 2014 to trying to talk some sense into the EU politicians and Europeans in general. I wrote countless articles explaining how harmful it was for the EU to continue as a US slave, and how necessary it was for the EU to make a turnaround towards cooperation with Russia. By 2015, I became so disgusted with European ‘leaders’ that I stopped talking about that.
However, to the surprise of some of my readers, I continued being long-term mildly optimistic about the EU turnaround, saying that it would have to happen sooner or later because there really was no other way for the future to play out.
Sooner or later EU would have to deal with Ukraine’s bills they couldn’t carry on paying (it is happening now); with the influx of armed ukro-nazi thugs on EU territory (may happen soon as Ukraine continues to disintegrate); the aftermath of sanctions forced on EU and Russia by the US and corrupt European politicians could become unbearable (farmers all over EU are protesting as we speak).
I also said from the very start of 2014 that just like with the Georgia/S. Ossetia crisis of 2008, the 2014 Ukraine would also blow over. They would yell and scream for a couple of years, and then start forgetting about it, turning to business as usual. They’d eventually tire of anti-Russian statements, remembering that, after all, EU and Russia did share one continent and trade between the two was too significant to jeopardize.
It turned out that the shock of Syrian refugees became the event that broke the camel’s back. Oh yes, the US prostitutes such as Merkel and the bought-and-paid-for EU MSM still puff their cheeks in the direction of Russia. But many of EU’s elites, as much as ordinary citizens, approve of Russia’s actions in Syria. The approval of Putin’s actions is through the roof, the fact being diligently hushed up.
Bought-and-paid-for or not, EU politicians have to start responding. And the turn begins.
The desperate need for a turnaround in European politics was crystal clear to me and my smart readers from the start of the 2014 Kiev maidan and coup. But EU politicians are awfully slow. Almost two years later, EU governments and individuals are finally timidly starting to see Poroshenko and the ukro-nazi junta for what they are. Poroshenko was again called on the carpet, this time in Paris, and admonished personally by Hollande, Merkel and Putin for non-compliance with Minsk agreements. Again, the meeting lasted for four or five hours, while Poroshenko was left humiliated waiting for his turn as Putin talked in private with Hollande and Merkel.
But on the global stage Ukraine events have now been relegated to the second tier of importance . The Syrian refugee crisis takes the cake. EU has never expected such massive inflow of refugees. More so, EU’s top bras have never expected such fight between countries regarding refugee passage and quotas. EU is strained to the core and is showing cracks, while the economic crisis makes countries question their participation in the EU. Crisis shows that the only unifying factor in the EU was ‘having good times and prospering together.’ The good times are gone, and so is unity.
This reminds me of Napoleon, who was the first to voice the idea that Europe should be ruled from one center, thus being considered the father of the EU. His multinational army only held together while it was advancing and winning. The moment hardship set in and the mighty Napoleon began losing to the Russians, his army disintegrated like a soap bubble.
The pro-Russian moods in the EU are growing, despite all the resistance by the US and anti-Russian/pro-US lobby. Pro-US moods are waning, and rapidly, although it is still far from reaching the level of real change. We can be assured that US itself and USA’s Trojan Horses in the EU will continue putting enormous pressure on Europe to toe the line.
For how this works see companion post: Bulgaria Returning to Native Shores: ‘Thank you Russia – 1878 and 1945’
EU may have not liked so much the latest pronouncements from the insane asylum formerly called Ukraine. During his UN speech drunk Poroshenko announced that “Russia is attempting to destabilize ISIS,” which I think embarrassed every remaining sane Ukrainian on the face of the Earth. Later Poroshenko proposed that Ukraine should gather data on families of Russian pilots in Syria in order to pass them on to ISIS so they would terrorize these families. Anton Gerashchenko, former advisor to Poroshenko and present Ukraine’s interior ministry advisor, announced that Ukraine should send troops to help ISIS take revenge on Russia.
I think even the sold-out EU politicians would experience nausea listening to such lunatics, who now scare to death many of their former supporters and maidan instigators from Poland, Brussels, UK and Germany.
However, for the anti-muslim-immigration countries such as Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia and Bulgaria, nothing has worked as well as the cold shower of the mass Middle Eastern migration. Rhetoric towards Russia changed overnight once they realized Russia could quickly accomplish what US and their own NATO were unable and unwilling to do for years: get rid of ISIS and stabilize Syria.
Again, like 70 years ago (WWII), 130 years ago (Ottoman Empire), and 200 years ago (Napoleon), Russia has to rescue these countries or territories, which in good times seem to forget everything that Russia has done for them, betraying their savior on a whim, once someone dangles a bigger and shinier carrot. In some cases, such as the traditionally pro-Russian Bulgaria and Slovakia, we are talking about US-bred russophobic elites installed as puppet governments, and equally puppet MSM. In cases of Hungary and Czechia we actually have relatively pro-Russian heads of state, who are surrounded by the same US-grown russophobic elites.
Out of all the above countries I want to single out POLAND, who for the longest time worked the hardest to damage Russia and whose not very intelligent policies turned it into the biggest US Manchurian Candidate and Trojan Horse in Europe.
It’s hard to turn around the EU. But the process of the EU turning away from the US and towards Russia and China is unavoidable and historically predetermined, unless EU wants to go down together with the mothership. They don’t seem to desire such outcome…
It will be a treacherous and lengthy process, as I’ve predicted in 2014. But this epic turnaround, when completed, will finally re-unite Eurasia, which still remains one continent with one single unified space, the need for cooperation and common goals, despite what some may want you believe.
So, the turn of this huge, misshapen ship has begun, despite the resistance. It is being signaled by the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who has said in a surprise speech in Germany: “Europe must treat Russia with more decency, improve the relationship, and not let EU policies be dictated by Washington.”

Calibration Reading — Earth & Personal Shift — Earth Shift Predictions — Feng Shui
I have received multiple requests to share those Russian analysts and sources that I listen to and recommend in the area of geopolitics and economy. One of the readers who has asked this question is our commenter extraordinaire, Paul. His comment and my initial reply with more info can be found here.
My recommendations are based on several factors: 1. How well any given analyst sees the big picture, without succumbing to small and negative emotions, which would taint and distort said big picture. 2. How profoundly this person knows and understands the global geopolitical/economic issues and hidden processes that move the global, Eurasian and Russian society. 3. How interesting it is to listen to this person. 4. How balanced he is (yes, unfortunately, all today’s recommendations are males – will that change soon?). 5. How well can he forecast and/or predict the future. As a geopolitical analyst who is also profoundly psychic and clairvoyant and boasting of a number of accurate global predictions, for me this is an important criteria. You’ll be surprised how many analysts cannot predict the future or gauge it accurately, despite their analysis being basically on target.
Keep in mind, all those listed below have their specialty and angle of view (as I do), so my recommendation doesn’t mean I 100% agree, nor that I necessarily endorse, what they say. If there is an interest in my thoughts on any specific statements by anyone mentioned, we can certainly discuss that in an audio interview.
Wherever possible I also provide relevant links.
Top 2 analysts I recommend highly:
YT link: Nikolay Starikov. Bestselling geopolitical author, head of the new Russian Party Velikoe Otechestvo. Excellent geopolitical knowledge, very accessible and easy to understand for an average listener and pro alike, great story-teller, does a lot of talks, many in book stores. I have a link to Starikov’s site on my Resources page. Here is also a very good talk by Starikov in Bratislava, Slovakia: Democracy and the Roots of Terrorism. Russian patriot, his views are those of a Russia-centric statesman. In that we differ somewhat, as I view all the processes in the world from the point of view of what is best for the Earth and mankind in general. However, as Russia and mankind’s interests largely coincide, I highly recommend Starikov as another angle and good addition to much of what I say. I usually listen to his talks.
Prof. Sergei Glazyev, advisor to President Putin. He is excellent when it comes mainly to economic and geo-economic analysis – very lucid, deep understanding of the big picture, as well as specific issues and practical ways of solving them. Here is a post on FuturisTrendcast which refers to his article: Putin’s Advisor Sergei Glazyev on Eurofascism. Did Russia and China Lose Propaganda War to the US?
YT link: Anatoly Vasserman. Very highly recommended as analyst, always keeps sight of the big picture. Unlike most others, manages to predict accurately, which shows a great deal of visionary clairvoyance – thus earning a high mark from me. Intellectual, considered one of the smartest people alive, with deep and clear knowledge and wisdom. Interesting to listen to. Jewish from Odessa (the city of my childhood), he is also a futurist with some very interesting ideas of the society of the future, based on advanced forms of socialism.
News of the Slavs with Evgeny Novikov at кРАмола инфо. From Minsk, Belarus. Succinct, 10 minute weekly YT program with analytical overview/opinion on major Russian/global issues. Novikov is a very good political commentator. I always listen.
Prof. Andrey Fursov. Very good analyst, a bit dry. Here is his latest video: Андрей Фурсов – Правда и ложь СМИ. (The MSM truth and lies).
Prof. Valentin Kasatonov. He’s geopolitical economist, mostly academic. Explains well in a detached way. Here’s his latest video analysis about the Russian economy, ruble slide, Western finanical system, FED.
YT link: Mikhail Zadornov. He is actually a comedian turned thinker/analytical comedian, if you will. I like him; he is, when appropriate, wise or funny, gloomy or – mostly – upbeat. In other words, he is balanced; good for those who are interested in distortions of Russian history and holistic (Rus: vedicheskiy – ‘Vedic’) way of life. He isn’t an analyst per se, but a good barometer of the Russian society in general on a balanced, yet critical side. I usually watch his weekly show Neformat to keep on top of that side of things.
The above recommendations complement what I usually talk about. In this regard, those who like my style and things I discuss relative to Russia, Eurasia, the West, forbidden history and liguistics, geopolitics and predictions may also find these helpful.
Some may also like:
Vladimir Zhirinovsky – Head of the Liberal Democratic Party, Deputy Speaker of the Duma. He is a talented speaker with a gift of the gab. Some feel he is too angry and flamboyant (he calmed down a lot lately). Zhirinovsky has a good long-term perspective and vision. Sharp, knowledgeable, sometimes makes decent predictions. Respected because of that. I like to listen to him as a barometer of what is happening in the right-wing part of the Russian society.
Sergei Zheleznyak (Deputy Speaker of the Duma, The United Russia Party). He only does debates (see below) and interviews. Has one of the better perspectives, logical, can talk. He expresses the centrist positon of the United Russia and he’s close to the official position of the Russian Federation. Because of that, he is a very good political barometer. He is originally from Kiev, and therefore, very knowledgeable about internal processes taking place in both Russia and Ukraine, as well as between the two. I find I agree with a lot of what he says in this regard.
Just to note, not a recommendation:
Evgeny Fedorov – Duma deputy, Head of NOD (the National Liberation Movement). To my taste, he is too angry and fear-mongering. But he does have the right perspective as to where Russia should be going, and what the West is up to. Leans toward conspiracy theories. He is sometimes interesting to listen to, makes some valid points. I caught him several times making wrong predictions – he always errs significantly on the negative side. See: Prediction: Is Kiev-Style Maidan Possible in St. Petersburg? Lots about him in that article. We discuss just that issue: his recent prediction that, as we now know, didn’t materialize, and mine that did.
Mikhail Delyagin – political economist. I caught him several times being wrong about what Russia will or won’t do, while my predictions were right on, so… He once in while make certain sense in his analysis – but not in his conclusions. Similar to Khazin. Like Khazin – Anti-Putin, unduly and extremely sarchastic and negative. Not my cup of tea.
I will add this name: Prof. Viktor Yefimov. He is more of a futurist and visionary than analyst. A bit convoluted and dry, but interesting. For those who want to go into the very deep and controvercial things.
I am also adding the top Russian geopolitical shows. There are more analysts and politicians that can be found there.
YT link: Sunday Night with Vladimir Solovyov on Russia 1 Channel. The best such talk show. Solovyov is an excellent host and moderator. Usually invites prominent Russian analysts, politicians, writers and foreign reps with varying points of view. I make it a point to watch. I find out a lot of news and keep my hand on the pulse of Russia through it, although I could easily do without the loud arguments when they really get going.
Politica with Peotr Tolstoy. Similar format to above. Link to recent show with Glazyev and Zhirinovsky.
Spetsialny Correspondent (Special Correspondent) show on Russia 1, with Evgeny Popov. Link to the latest show about Novorossia, with Zhirinovsky, Zheleznyak, Kurginyan, Shargunov (not bad), Latvian analyst Einar Graudinsh (he’s right on!), and American journalist Michael Baum, who’s very good at finding excuses for US, NATO and OSCE in Ukraine.
The Polish time-bomb?
(Nothing personal, just facts and translation)
Starting at 10:40, the above Spetsialny Correspondent show includes a documentary about the recent riots resembling the Kiev maidan in Warsaw, Poland. The masked, well-trained and organized young people threw at police the cobblestones dug out in advance, as well as Molotov cocktails. The Russian journalist’s investigation shows the close connection between the two events. It also shows the close connection between the Ukrainian and Polish secret police. Both have exchanged information and Ukrainian police trained in Polish secret training facilities. At 13:00 it is revealed that there is a ‘profound friendship’ between western Ukraine nazis and central Polish authorities. Two months before Kiev maidan a number of ukro-nazis received training in Poland. Officially referred to as ‘Ukrainian students,’ they looked like bald forty-year-old body builders with tattooed swastikas. On pictures one can see people in masks – these are Polish instructors. They forgot to remove the sign, which reads: “Police Legionovo.” This is the location of the secret special police training facility.
Russian journalist tried to get an interview from the Polish author of these revelations in one of the local papers. The author of the article published on the first page, with lots of telling pictures (see video), said that the whole thing was a joke, nothing more. He looked uncomfortable, his front tooth chipped. Looks like someone got to him. At the same time, the prosecutor’s office of Warsaw initiated a criminal case against the unauthorized presence of the ukro-nazis in Poland. Left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing? Or was it done for show: ‘Polish authorities have nothing to do with ukro-nazis’? At 16:00 – interview with another revelation: the so-called ‘Union of Ukrainians in Poland’ receives huge support from the Polish government. It’s possible that the money goes to arm nazis in Ukraine.
It appears what I suspected all along is taking place in Poland: the radical, ultra-nationalistic minority that has usurped the country’s power structures, is doing everything to ignite a bigger conflict in Europe in order to take revenge on Russia (and Germany too) for old spites. Because of their shortsightedness, they are serving as the US Trojan Horse in the EU, trying to deepen a wedge between Russia and Europe. It is a mistake not to take what is happening in Poland seriously. For years, we have already made this mistake with Ukraine, thinking it couldn’t get any worse – and it did.
Both EU and Ukraine will do well to understand who is manipulating them and why. Any reasonable people still left in the US should also understand that it’s against their best interests to be in bed with the Poles. Poles will attempt to hide behind the US back when things go wrong – and they will; they’ll shift the blame onto the US for the catastrophe they are creating in Europe. This is a very dangerous game. The only result is that Poland will drag itself into the abyss, trying to take others with them.
Further in the same show at 21:30 Sergei Zheleznyak reads a quote: ‘Soviet Union has to be divided into separate tribes wherever possible. We must create for these tribes a separate national identity and idea that would be in direct opposition to the Russian idea. For Ukrainians we need to create their own alphabet and their own vocabulary as different as possible from Russian.’ One of the ideologues of German Nazism, Georg Schmidt-Rohr. This is exactly what is happening in today’s Ukraine, which means someone has activated the old Nazi playbook!
At 32:35 – documentary ‘Faces of Novorossia.’ At 34:33 they show burned packaging from an American military lunch left by the Ukrainian army in the completely destroyed Lugansk Airport. At 35:10 they show factories in ruins left after 23 years of Ukraine’s independence. Not from the artillery shelling, just from the country that gradually was falling apart. 35:55 – Kiev stopped paying pensions to Lugansk/Donetsk retirees, doctors and teachers haven’t been paid in 4 months.
They also show a 20-year-old man, young musician from Donetsk, who lost his leg while coming home from a music lesson when Ukraine army was bombing Donetsk. At the same time the American journalist Michael Baum remarks that what is happening in Ukraine is a game. You can imagine the reaction to such statement.
They later talk about the future Nuremberg-style tribunal for crimes against humanity committed in Ukraine and about the need for the international engagement for the de-militarization, de-nazification of the entire Ukraine.
All the above revelations confirm and reinforce what I have stressed in Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History. I have talked about the extensive secret role of Poland in financing and instigating the Kiev maidan, and of Polish training facilities for color revolutionaries. I have also talked about the old German idea of tearing the Russians in Ukraine from the Russians in Russia in order to conquer Russia. As I said in the same report, aggression against Russia always ends badly for the aggressor, as the cancer they had created starts eating themselves from the inside, which is what we are seeing now with riots in Poland, Hungary, France, UK and other countries. Much more is revealed in: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History!
P.S. There is additional discussion about Poland in the comment section.
Incidentally, many people mentioned above, such as Zhirinovsky, Zheleznyak, Zadornov, Solovyov, Fedorov have been blacklisted and sanctioned both in Ukraine and US/EU. They cannot travel to either.
