From original article posted on LADA RAY PATREON:
HEADS UP! Some great news! To further enrich this theme, I’m doing the comparative quantum calibrations, with interpretations, of the most important international organizations. Look for the the following several posts!
RIC, BRICS and SCO vs. JAI
G7 vs. G20
EU vs. EAEU (Eurasian Union)
I am sure you’ll find these calibrations both fascinating and revealing! I expect they’ll add clarity and another dimension to the understanding of the whole picture!
We have done NATO calibrations in the past on Patreon! Please check it out!
In the future, I plan to also calibrate UN, IMF, World Bank, etc.
I’ll also calibrate the world’s best intelligence services: FSB, GRU, CIA, NSA, MI6, Mossad, and more.
All these calibrations will become a part of my
GEOPOLITICAL & ECONOMIC CALIBRATIONS book!
Complete with predictions and interpretations, this book will become a tool for the true understanding of our world!
Stay tuned for the book progress and release dates!
**Calibrations are amazingly revealing and they show the truth like no other method out there!
Quantum Calibrations Regular Feature is available exclusively on Patreon at $10+ monthly contribution level!
THE VALUE OF QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS
**Calibrations are an amazingly valuable tool: based on them we can assess more accurately the present and past, and we can predict the future (but always keep in mind: in my future predictions, calibrations are just one element. There is so much more to the multidimensional predictions and forecasts!) The biggest value of calibrations is the fact that they absolutely accurately quantify and pinpoint the truth of any situation, event, object or subject. They normally give you the result with crystal clarity and with a directness of the truth.

What’s Happening with Brazil Elections & Bolsonaro? + Brazil Economy/Currency & the Role of the US (Ask Lada + Predictions)
THIS IS A FREE REPOST FROM LADA RAY PATREON!
‘The reason Brazil is being thrown into extremes is because neither politics nor economy work…’ ~Lada Ray
Teresa mc: Lada, this weekend Brazil is going to vote and I’m puzzled with what’s going there. The cabal took the PT from power, now is demonizing Bolsonaro and favoring the candidate of PT. I’ve seen videos proving that many horrible accusations made to Bolsonaro are taken out of context. Not that I like him, but this big mess doesn’t make sense to me… I’m curious about your insight 🙂
In my comprehensive report on the ex-president Dilma Rousseff impeachment and Brazil’s 2016 color revolution I said that the situation, much like that proverbial pendulum, swung very far in the opposite direction and away from the socialist PT, Dilma and ex-president of Brazil Lula da Silva. It would take a long time for it to stabilize in some sort of equilibrium. Our Earth Shift Patron, Masaki (Akaida), helped me with the comprehensive report in question. Read it on FT: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions.
We are now observing the fallout of what happened in 2016, and before. The many problems of Brazil spilled out during and after that color revolution. The center-right president Temer wasn’t enough and his actions didn’t calm down the situation a bit. The problems of Brazil persist, and only a drastic change can shift it into a better plane.
IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE POLITICS OF BRAZIL, WE NEED TO FIRST LOOK AT ITS ECONOMY:
It doesn’t help that the economy of Brazil, like many other Latin American countries, is tightly woven into the US economy. Dilma tried to diversify out, but too late. The economy was already on the downswing when she began.
Brazil tried to get a better balance through the BRICS. But again, the economies of export and natural resource-oriented countries were down, and the biggest members of the BRICS, who could help Brazilian economy to recover, are better positioned for economic cooperation within Eurasia, and also Africa. The countries I am talking about are, of course, China, India and Russia. These countries would rather work with each other and those countries where the return on investment is much higher.
Therefore, Brazil is very much isolated, economically and geographically.
Another thing is the high valuations of the Brazilian real. I won’t go into technical details, but suffice it to say that this happens because of the dependency on the US, where the dollar is manipulated in such a way as to produce inflation in Latin America and other countries.
Export economies, such as China and Russia, keep their currencies artificially depressed to discourage manipulations (we’ve seen plenty of attacks on the ruble, as one example). This also makes these countries’ exports competitive, thus helping domestic economy. We also see the relatively under-valued currencies of Australia and Canada, as other examples of same.
Relatively high valuations of the Real are making Brazil economy especially inflexible and uncompetitive. It also produces an illusion that Brazil’s salaries and standard of living are higher than they actually are. In reality, there is a lot of poverty in Brazil and people are simply not well to do, as a rule.
It has to be noted that the inability or unwillingness (corruption in many cases) to properly manage the local currency is a common affliction of Latin American countries. The economic/monetary dependency on the US, and in some cases also on the UK, as well as, to a lesser degree, on the EU/Spain/Portugal, is playing a very bad joke on the economies of the region. Some learned to live with it and others are struggling.
This problem is at least 150 years of age and it began at least in the 19th century, possibly 18th. No matter how they try, L. American countries are unable to break out of this vicious circle of dependency.
THE ENTANGLED BRAZIL POLITICS & BOLSONARO
The reason the country is being thrown into extremes is because the economy doesn’t work. It worked, as I wrote in the above referenced big report, only when the commodity prices were sky-high. That carried the entire country and rose all the ships. But it turns out that Brazilian economy is unable to function well when the going gets tough. In the report, I compare it with Russian economy, which has been surviving, and often thriving, in much more challenging circumstances (this doesn’t mean, of course, that Russian economy is problem-free).
The most important thing to understand is that Brazil had a lot of major problems swept under the rug for decades, and even centuries. Now they are coming out in some ugly forms. Until these problems, some of which I’ve outlined above, are resolved, the shaking and turmoils will continue. In this regard, Brazil reminds me a little of Ukraine. But thankfully, it seems saner.
During the Earth Shift anything that is not serving, anything that is wrong and doesn’t work any more, will be washed away by the flood. If the powers that be cling to it, the act of change will be especially violent and hard.
It appears, Brazil as a country is rather dysfunctional. They tried it the socialist way, with PT and Lula/Dilma, and it worked for a while, until it didn’t. They tried it with president Michel Temer, a centrist-conservative, whom US very much supported; yet the population is still unhappy.
The reason: it’s not about any one person in power. Brazil’s problem is systemic – the whole system has to change.
However, as it is common with humans at a certain level of consciousness, they continue hoping that a new leader will provide the necessary change. He won’t.
The thing with Period 8 (see Webinar 4) and the thing with any dire economic situation is that the far-right leaders tend to come to power. The far-right resurgence is happening in many countries: just look at Trump, Italy’s change of power, Marine le Pen’s good showing in France, the rise of the right in Spain, Germany, Netherlands, etc. I am not even talking about the ukro-nazi regime in Ukraine. Of course these are all very different forces, and the hateful Kiev ukro-nazis do not compare to Le Pen or the Italian government. But they all are far-right, per usual definition.
The rise of Bolsonaro is natural under these circumstances. Brazilians tried different things and when all else failed, they decided to go for the tough-talking far-right candidate.
Now, Bolsonaro is not nearly the same as Hitler, of course, but I just want to make this limited comparison. AND NOTE: I AM NOT A FAN OF BOLSONARO! I am merely an impartial observer.
Hitler came to power in Germany when the country was in deep crisis and Germans hoped he would provide them with a better life. He did… through killing millions and destroying other countries, until he nearly destroyed his own.
Brazil is also in a deep crisis. This is why the far-right is on the rise. A tough leader is being craved by the population, hoping he will finally resolve their problems. As I said, he won’t, as it all runs much deeper.
But that’s where the comparison with Hitler ends. Like in the case of some of the contemporary European far-right, this far-right movement is non-external, non-aggressive towards other countries. If anything, it tends towards isolationism.
WHY USA IS AFRAID OF BOLSONARO
The Western neo-liberal establishment is very much afraid of the far-right. These people are mavericks, usually strict nationalists, and sometimes anti-globalists. And they are populists, which may destroy the whole globalist structure built in a specific country, such as Brazil.
The neo-liberal globalist elites are already having a lot of trouble with Italy’s new government, which they can’t control. They try very hard not to allow any others who they may not be able to control. By the way, the jury is still out on that – given the track record of Brazilian presidents and elites, they tend to be very easy to control.
As Teresa pointed out in her comment, they first did everything to topple PT/Lula/Dilma, and now they are supporting them?.. Yes, that’s how they normally operate. They would pit one force against another in order to weaken whoever is stronger. They have no principles or beliefs, except one: divide and conquer.
Having understood the danger of Bolsonaro, they support his enemy, even if previously they did everything to kill that enemy. This way both are weakened.
Until Brazilians understand this diabolical design, they’ll always be victims of such unscrupulous forces. And again, the parallels with Ukraine are striking!
WHAT ABOUT TRUMP?
Trump should be a natural ally to Bolsonaro, right?
He would, if Trump was in control of the situation. But as we’ve established through my predictions 2016-17, Trump is in that infamous ‘straitjacket’ and on survival mode.
Another thing it shows: Trump is not in control of the media, and especially importantly, of the US foreign policy(!) as much as some might hope.
And the third thing: Trump is actually ignorant of Brazil, like he is ignorant of many other realities. He likely relies on reports by his not very good and not very honest advisors, who wouldn’t tell him an impartial truth.
I see a lot of splits and divisions continuing in Brazil. The divisions run deep. Reconciling all of them will take a while.
One person, whoever he/she is, can’t fix the deep-running Brazil problems.
It’s the brutal truth, I know, but it has to be told. Brazilian state went for the flashy appearance of success under Lula/Dilma, when the country had the money and the chance. They went for flashy ‘DESIRE’ AND ‘PRIDE’ (See the Quantum Calibrations scale). They are still running on the same lower energy.
Brazil had failed to build a solid economic-financial structure, which would’ve taken time and effort, but which would serve them for decades, providing stability and insulating them from crises. The present problems of Brazil require a systemic shift in consciousness, economy, currency, and more.
Brazil and other L. American countries will do better in Period 9 (SEE WEBINAR 4), but that is contingent upon a lot of factors, which we will discuss in the future, when I begin talking about PERIOD 9!
We’ll do a more targeted overview of Brazil and other South/L. American countries when we do Quantum Calibrations for the continent!

(Incidentally: my hint — Putin won’t bargain at Iran’s expense, that fantasy is completely off the table. But Putin will listen if US and Israel want to help clear Ukraine from the ukro-nazi junta contamination, and if US wants to get its troops out of Syria.)

Summary & Conclusions:
HOW THE HOT SUMMER OF ECLIPSES & RETROGRADES WILL AFFECT 4D GEOPOLITICS & INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Read EARTH SHIFT REPORT 22 EXCERPTS!
The hot summer of 2018 is astrologically one of the most intense on human memory. What is occurring in the skies concerns us individually, but it also concerns whole nations and the world in general. Much will be changing during the months of July and August, and by September the plans laid our earlier may be scrapped or re-worked, while new ideas will spring up. We’ll observe this metamorphosis in our personal lives, and we’ll witness it in the international affairs.
As we entered July, five planets were retrograde, including the big outer planets, influencing humanity in general. The ‘good fortune’ Jupiter finally goes direct on July 10, but instead he planet of commerce, fast movement and communication, Mercury, goes retrograde on July 26-August 19.
The unusual 3-eclipse sequence signals that many karmic and fateful events are about to take place. The eclipses are designed to fasten our spiritual growth and understanding. This is happening on both personal and planetary levels. We are going through a massive transformation, and the eclipses are acting as catalysts for the Earth Shift.
PREDICTION! Make no mistake, the shakeups and crises in the West will continue and intensify! This is due to the ongoing EARTH SHIFT, as I have been predicting for years! It will only get worse, and the EU and NATO won’t survive for too many years too come. When we reach Period 9 (Listen to ESW4), the changes will be staggering!
Mars in traditional ancient astrology is called ‘the Great Malefic’ — in other words, a big bad planet. It gets this distinction together with Saturn. We have talked about the Saturn side of the ‘malefic duo’ in Earth Shift Report 19: Global Banking & Financial System Shift: Saturn in Capricorn 2018-2020 Predictions. On traditional ancient astrology’s opposite side of the equation are the ‘Great Benefics’: Jupiter and Venus, which can only bring good luck. But there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. We get lazy and complacent if everything’s too easy. We need challenges to grow.
Therefore, we must look at the whole picture in a multidimensional, enlightened way. In my view every sign, every planet, every energy influence and manifestation has a place and it teaches us something. If you approach everything in a multidimensional way, as a lesson to learn on the road to personal growth and the expansion of consciousness, then all of it will fall into place.
The eclipse + retrograde season is conspiring to dramatically change our perception of the world around us. By the time we reach September, we will have shaped up a different kind of reality.

Global Banking & Financial System Shift: Saturn in Capricorn 2018-2020 Predictions
That WAS inspired, even for non-fans like myself: Underdog Russia beats Spain! #Russia2018 #WorldCup
Even I, who isn’t into football (soccer), watched and re-watched the highlights of this match. #Russia2018 World Cup isn’t only the best organized championship in FIFA history, as even the Russophobic British and Swedish MSM are forced to admit. It also has a distinction of being the most memorable rollercoaster Mundial ever. Most favorites are out, including former world champions and celebrity teams such as Germany, Spain, Portugal and Argentina.
Meanwhile, World Cup’s biggest ever underdog, Russia, is proceeding to quarterfinals for the first time in 32 years, where Russia hasn’t been since the Soviet period. The game with one of the favorites, Spain, ended in Russia’s victory after the penalty round. But it could’ve ended sooner and even more convincingly in Russia’s favor if one of the Russian players didn’t commit a silly mistake, resulting in own goal accidentally putting Spain ahead. Yet, Russia not only managed to even out the score, but get ahead against the Spanish monsters team, referred to as the ‘red fury.’
Russia, rated 70, gained 60 points as a result – third largest rating advance in FIFA’s history.
Russia meets Croatia, who is also playing very well, in quarterfinals, and may the best team win. Even if Russia doesn’t win in quarterfinals, the Spain-Russia game will have made history. There is a talk of building a statue to the goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, who instantly became international celebrity after several major saves, including deflecting that famous last Spanish penalty shot with his leg. The whole team performed very well and a big credit goes to the new Russian coach Stanislav Cherchesov, who turned out to be a master strategist. You might say that finally Russians guessed correctly with the national team’s coach. For years, they tried to hire foreign celebrity coaches, to whom crazy astronomical sums were paid, only to get disappointed in their performance. Recently Russians made a decision not to hire foreigners as coaches any more.
Igor Akinfeev final spectacular save, which gave Russia the win over Spain, World Cup 2018
Oh yes, believe it or not, before this game FIFA rated Akinfeev as the worst player on Russian team.
Celebrations in Russia following big win:
I am not a big football (soccer) specialist, although during this FIFA World Cup we all have suddenly become experts, lol. I freely admit I’m not.
But what I am rather an expert in is geopolitics, including the geopolitics of sport. And of course, the big one: the Great Earth Shift. (Granted, Russia continues stressing — rightly so — that World Cup 2018 is far and away from politics, but honestly, come on…)
There are four major geopolitical and Earth Shifting questions:
- Why is Russia hosting World Cup 2018?
- When can we expect the usual Russophobic noise from the US/UK to begin that Russian team is ‘doping’?
- Will Ukraine/Poroshenko dare to attack Donbass during World Cup?
- What will be the consequences/benefits of this World Cup for Russia and the Earth Shift?
We’ve discussed and I answered in detail question number 3 in this Patreon report: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS: Ukraine, Poroshenko and Ukrainian Army (with many important updates & predictions)
And the rest?… Stay tuned for it!
I have decided to make several posts on Patreon FREE and available to general public, as a sneak peek into our new community and its promising multifaceted development! Hope more people from FuturisTrendcast, as well as general public, will join our growing PATREON community for my future detailed analytical, predictive and multidimensional articles and videos!

Eurasia: the New Global Axis of Power Has Formed (Russia, Iran, Turkey + China)!
I’d been talking about this since 2014-2015. The big events happening in the Middle East are certainly a part of the GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
Revisit my prior post for links to relevant ESRs, with detailed intel, analysis and predictions: Goodbye US and NATO? Putin and Erdogan sign nuclear mega-deal and agree on fast S-400 delivery. Remember, that my ESRs and ESWs never duplicate each other! All material is new and unique!
At the same time as the above Putin-Erdogan deals were signed, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani was also there, and the joint statement by Russia, Turkey and Iran was made. As one of our FT followers, Gary, just mentioned in a very poignant comment, “The whole events in Turkey are just breathtaking in their historical importance.”
The statement issued by the three is affirmation of the territorial integrity of Syria, and of the fact that the war in Syria must end.
A Vesti video with the joint statement:
Essentially, what we see here is that the US and West are slowly bus surely being squeezed out of the Middle East, as the new alliance of powers is taking hold. I talked about it in detail and explained much in my interview:
A NEW TSAR ARRIVED: HOW PUTIN IS SQUEEZING THE US OUT OF THE NEW MIDDLE EAST

Going back to the main topic:
I want to stress that this is a BALANCED alliance, taking into account the many interests and intricacies of the region! This is in stark contrast to the imbalanced and one-sided previous Western dominance.
The fact that such different three powers managed to get together and form such an unlikely coalition is epic. The driving power and the unifying factor behind this new, unthinkable before alliance is Russia The Great Balancer. I wrote about it in ESR13, and other Turkey/Syria ESRs.
It is clear that none of this would have been possible without Russia. What we have here is a vivid demonstration of the demonstration of how The Great Balancer works.
The 2017 Russia-Turkey-Iran summit in Sochi, where the framework for the new deal was developed, is already dubbed the second Yalta. (In 1945, near the close of WWII, three then world powers gathered in Yalta to outline the post WWII global structure, which is crumbling today, as we are progressing through the Earth Shift.)
Add to that China…

Acts of International Sabotage: Another Major Fire in Russia as Country Grieves for Kemerovo Victims!
One fire may be (although it wasn’t) an accident; two major and SIMILAR fires within 2-3 days – never an accident!
Today’s major fire inside a car dealership full of people in St. Petersburg. As far as I know, there were no victims and, thankfully, everyone got out on time. Video:
If you want to ask my opinion, and you know I am seldom, if ever, wrong: these are coordinated acts of international sabotage against Russia and Putin. I have predicted this more than once and I said that not only the elections were targeted, but also World Cup.
I firmly believe that the Skripal poisoning false flag, Russian diplomats coordinated mass-expulsion, blaming Russia for the ISIS/terrorists’ chemical weapons false flag in Syria and escalation in E. Ghouta, plus the Kemerovo fire and this new incident — all these things are tightly interconnected in one orchestrated mega-sabotage and vilification drive against Russia.
The culprits are well-known and I won’t go into details here, although I have a very good idea what entities and from what countries are behind each case.
The goal is many-fold:
1. Punish Russians for voting for Putin in such unprecedented numbers;
2. Spoil the World Cup celebrations – for the same reason, to punish Russians for supporting Putin;
3. Making Putin’s and any elites’ who support him lives hell;
4. Make Russians everywhere – inside and outside of Russia – feel depressed, to basically snuff the light out of all of us;
5. Make Russia and Russians too preoccupied with the situation inside the country, rendering The Great Balancer paralyzed and unable to fulfill its important global role;
6. Scare off anyone/any country who might try to revolt against US/UK hegemony;
7. Scare off anyone who may want to try to have any semblance of good relations and normal business with Russia;
8. Continuation of the theme I’ve talked about since 2014, and before that, in my book The Earth Shifter in 2012 – make Russia into a pariah;
9. The ultimate goal is to weaken Russia so much from within and without so that Russia the Great Balancer would be destroyed.
Russian authorities have indicated that they rule out a terrorist act in Kemerovo. This is treated as an incident due to negligence by owners and authorities. I agree with that, but not entirely. There is more!
This is how sabotage is done: you find a weak link and strike there. Sabotage is effective when there are pre-requisites in the form of negligence. First, a sleeper cell on the ground finds the right sabotage venue, such as the Kemerovo mall, where security measures are not observed properly and where the very nature of the place makes it a challenge to escape in case of emergency. Then a few people are bribed, and they really don’t need to know why they are being asked to do something for a few hundred bucks. And then the fire is set during rush hour, when the mall is filled to capacity.
Otherwise, how can one explain these strange facts from the Kemerovo tragedy: the lights suddenly went out during the fire, making it hard to see where to go in the darkened and smoky environment; emergency exits were locked; some uneducated maintenance guy, as it became known, has turned off the alarm when the fire started; the doors of one of the three movie theaters were locked from the outside. To top it off, the fire consumed the entire building in such a short time that this in itself if very suspicious. The timing and everything else together look more than suspicious.
Now look at this chain of events! On the heels of the Kemerovo tragedy, a major Russia-wide investigation is starting into how various high-public-traffic businesses observe fire safety rules. If the saboteurs in question have identified another place with lax safety procedures, say a certain dealership in St. Petersburg, which can also be set on fire on cue, they now have to rush and perhaps do it ahead of schedule. Why? Because inspectors will certainly show up at said dealership soon, and they will make the owners fix all the problems. Then it’ll be too late. And so they do it on the day of the national mourning for Kemerovo victims.
And all this is happening to the accompaniment of the heartless mass expulsion of Russian diplomats:
- Insensitive West Mass-Expels Russian Diplomats as Russia Grieves over Kemerovo Tragedy
- The West Stuck in 3D Matrix, 4D World War & Why We Desperately Need the 5D EARTH SHIFT
- URGENT PREDICTIONS! US and EU Mass-Expelling Russian Diplomats, Building New Iron Curtain!
And it is also happening in the midst of the UNSC battle, where US/UK and their vassals are trying to pin E. Ghouta and whatever else they can on Russia, the only country with a fully legitimate, authorized presence in Syria. It is the US and other Western countries who are in Syria illegitimately; it is US who nurtured and protected ISIS and other terrorists — yet it is Russia who is to blame for their actions.
Another interesting thing that is re-surfacing. I am hearing renewed rumors that US/UK are trying YET AGAIN to turn Russia off SWIFT, the international system of electronic transactions. This was attempted in 2014, as part of anti-Russian sanctions, but SWIFT refused. The pressure and blackmail of SWIFT continues to be enormous. So is the pressure and blackmail of all international companies and governments trying to do business and have normal relations with Russia.
And one more thing: it is USA’s mega-goals to stop Nord Stream-2. They will continue this unprecedented intimidation campaign until they succeed – at least they think they can succeed. They will use the dirtiest methods in existence to try to accomplish this goal. There is no limit to how ugly they can get!
This is how ugly it looks when the old hegemon such as the aggressive and imbalanced USA + UK are going down. This multi-tentacled Kraken monster wants to drag everyone with it into the abyss — and don’t tell me I haven’t warned you previously!
As I explained to you in my Multidimensional Geopolitics Webinars (see ESW2), this mega-monster will never go away quietly, unlike the NICE and naive Soviet Union did, to its own detriment. It will try to suck the life out of everything and everyone, to save itself at the expense of everyone else.
I had predicted and warned this would happen since 2014, and multiple times thereafter! You thought it would have been a nightmare? Well, my dears, you are in it!
They won’t attack Russia directly, as I also predicted repeatedly. They will do that through proxies and underhanded sabotage, they’ll continue escalating this 4D hybrid war, which in fact is the new World War. It’s not a Cold War anymore. It is much worse.
Russia the Great Balancer will continue trying to keep the world spinning, practically alone — as I also predicted many times. Putin and his team are here to prevent the ultimate catastrophe – also as I predicted. They’ll do their job.
But why is it always at Russia’s and Russians’ expense? Why do we, the Russian people, always have to pay such a disproportionate price for saving the ungrateful and ignorant humans? Personally, I am sick and tired of that!
Meanwhile, here is your moment of truth! Watch: Crimea Has Spoken: 92% of the Votes Went to Putin, International Observers Saw it All Themselves
But that’s not what the Dark State of the Anglo-American persuasion wants to hear!
No comment – The US evil Dark State at work: US State Dept briefing, making black seem white and vice versa; shifting the blame from the culprit to the innocent. Turns out it’s not the US but ‘Russia who has long arms & lots of tentacles, it’s a beast from the deep sea’ – says State Dept’s yet another brainless fake blond:
And this is what the UK evil Dark State is doing and how they are twisting their EU counterparts’ arms into submission for a ‘unified front’ against Russia:
Theresa May’s lies are very easily dispelled by anyone who has half a brain. Turns out, the so-called “Novichok” isn’t even a Russian name, although it is made sound Russian – to easily put the blame on Russia, of course. Moreover, anyone could buy the formula of this particular chemical formulation for $28 online, from a book published in the USA. Moreover, the actual place this agent was registered was the USA in late 1990s, after which it was mysteriously de-registered.
Moreover, UK, at it’s infamous super-secret Porton Down lab, located just next to the supposed Skripal poisoning site, has both this substance and its antidote. Read my full article. Meanwhile, Russia has neither, as Russia gave up all chemical weapons and destroyed them years ago.
Can you imagine how desperate they are? How scared of Russia the Great Balancer? Can you imagine to what lows they can still stoop? The answer: to any lows imaginable and unimaginable. And don’t think they won’t!
In short, I am majorly disgusted, and I am sick and tired of all this negativity and all this one-way street.
PREDICTION – and a warning!
Disgusted or not, I’ll still give you my closing prediction! Expect Putin and Russia to respond to these crazy attacks unexpectedly and in a very unusual way. Just expelling some Western diplomats in response won’t do the trick. There will be more, and they won’t see it coming.
Unfortunately, this won’t stop the crazies sitting in Washington and London. I am afraid they went unchallenged for so long they forgot in their dumb arrogance that they are not invinsible. In the past such things ended in hot World Wars, with devastating results. Should these idiots get us yet again in the situation of no return, the next hot world war will be the last one!
Remember my Prophecy from THE EARTH SHIFTER novel, published in 2012? Remember what happens in the book to New York City, and as a consequence to most of the planet, as a future probability? If they go too far, this won’t be just probability.

You can ban Russia but you can’t ban Russians! PyeongChang 2018 Olympics: My Predictions Coming 200% True
You can ban Russia but you can’t ban Russians!
PyeongChang 2018 Olympics: My Predictions Coming 200% True!
Let’s begin with the fact that my predictions as to how these Olympics will be developing for the Russian team are coming true. I said that they’ll find ways to make every Russian’s life at the Olympics hell, and they’ll find ways to announce someone was doping, to compromise and destroy any chances for redemption.
The only apt comparison I can come up for this is that of a starving and wounded gladiator, with one arm tied behind his back, trying to fight a healthy, well equipped and cunning adversary, who has the usage of both arms and a full choice of weapons.
Read previous big report, where everything is explained: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games?
The developments – so far:
- Russian curler Krushelnitsky, winner of the bronze medal together with his wife and partner, was set up for doping in order to make the rest of Russian team look bad and keep the scandal alive. As if it’s not entirely clear that of all sports in existence, curling is the one benefiting least of any doping. Not to mention the minute dose discovered in his system, which speaks of a one time sabotage. Not to mention the fact that the old Soviet heart restorative Meldonat (Meldonium) isn’t even a drug but an innocent supplement. It has to be added that curling is NOT a sport known in Russia, and so winning bronze in such a new for Russians sport was a feat in itself, making the good-looking Krushelnitsky and his wife, dubbed ‘Mr and Mrs Smith,’ instant icons. It appears the sabotage was well targeted.
- The team is completely beheaded, as ALL CLEAN TOP CHAMPIONS, especially in medal rich sports such as skiing and speed skating, as well as figure stating, bobsled and all others, have been kicked out without any explanation. Here’s your explanation for all those medals won by Norway! The second and third tier ‘asthma sufferer’ skiers from Norway are suddenly favorites. Per some reports, the Norway skiing team brought with them to the Olympics 6000 (!!!) doses of asthma medicine (also known as doping), fully authorized as a ‘medical’ exception by IOC and WADA.
- Russian coaches and support/tech staff aren’t allowed at the Games, which means that in most cases young and inexperienced junior Russian athletes have to do everything themselves. In the highly involved technical sports (bobsled, skeleton, skiing), where specific expertise is needed, these 18 and 20 year olds cannot rely on anyone’s support, and are deprived of sleep as a result of working for 3 or 4 people just to get ready for competition. Other teams, of course, brought with them all the technical support staff they needed. Very fair competition, all within the spirit of the Olympics, isn’t it?
- Russian team has been slashed to the bone, only 160 or so allowed to compete, most young and inexperienced. And despite that, they still managed to win QUITE A FEW medals!
- Russian athletes are constantly provoked and baited by MSM and various provocateurs to say publicly what country they are from — and if you can believe it, they are not allowed to say they are from Team Russia, nor are they allowed Russian anthem or colors in any shape of form. A punishment would await them personally, and entire team, should they slip up.
It’s developing just as I’d warned!
This is the beginning. More of this saga with predetermined outcome to come! Just wait till you see the mockery they are trying to make out the closing ceremony: first they say they’ll let Russians take part in the closing ceremony under the Russian flag, then they say they won’t because Russians broke the rules. I am personally boycotting it all the way. And I sincerely hope NO Russian attends that spectacle! Seriously, if I were Russians, I’d leave immediately after the last competition is over!
Meanwhile, despite all this incredible pressure and sabotage, despite all the odds, Russians continue winning medals, 13 as of yesterday, but we are expecting more today and tomorrow, including some gold.
One headline from the US, 2/21/18: Putin’s Russia Just Can’t Seem To Win Olympic Hockey Gold. Just look at the political subtext! This publication appears to be connected to ESPN network.
There are many, many, many such headlines and articles all over!
Meanwhile, Russian men’s hockey team is also forced to compete without flag or county name on their uniforms, and they have been even forced to take down their name, ‘Red Machine.’ Despite that, Russians won 4:0 against US. Having lost to Russia, the US men’s hockey team is out – perhaps that’s the explanation for so much venom in that title. We know that the US coach was so mad he ordered his players to physically attack and harm Russian players (caught on camera giving these instructions).
And just recently today Russian team beat Norway 6:1, thus advancing to semi-finals, where they’ll play against Czechs.
Russia vs. Norway, men’s hockey, Feb 22, 2018. Score: 6:1 – all winning goals:
You all know my view: Russia should have boycotted these 2018 Winter Olympics outright. Instead, Russia should be focusing very actively on building a new world sports order — the one reflecting the Great Earth Shift. But as I’ve been predicting since 2015-16, there are too many other important fires to put out and things to accomplish first. Pity, sport is always such a lagging indicator of change.
In addition to that, there are many intertwined interests within the sports hierarchy in Russia, as in many other countries. These interests won’t let it go that easily. And again, all I can say to that, it’s a pity.
I have said that in my opinion Russia should leave this incredibly politically engaged and rotten system. It should be boycotted by Russia outright. However, the rationale given by the Russian athletes and their coaches is that if Russia boycotts 2018 Olympics altogether, this will be an excuse to throw Russia out of international sports and pretend Russian sport doesn’t exist once and for all. This is the development eagerly awaited by the West and Dark State, in order to prove that Russia indeed is isolated. ‘Russia is isolated and its economy is torn to shreds’ has been the narrative of the Dark State and their pointpersons, Obama, Clinton and almost everyone else in the US establishment since 2014. To their dismay, it proved impossible to isolate Russia either politically or economically. On the contrary, Russia’s and Putin’s outreach and reputation have grown by leaps and bounds since.
The Big sport and Olympics turned out to be the only fronts on which such isolation may have succeeded due to the WADA/IOC position. It also appears, some countries in many sports may be eagerly hoping for such development — and these are the countries who can’t win if Russia is still present. Sounds pretty disgusting and not very sporting, doesn’t it?
I can see how what Russian athletes and coaches suggest can be true. In the past 25 years, since the collapse of the USSR, there were many such malicious sabotage attempts. I’ve seen them with my own eyes, and it previously caused me to boycott the Olympics from 2002 till 2008.
To be precise, everyone at #PyeongChang2018 Olympics and generally in Western-dominated sport pretends there is no Team Russia. There is the so-called ‘OAR,’ which is the abbreviation for the ‘Olympic Athlete from Russia.’ But YOU ALL KNOW WHAT THE OAR FLAG IS, DON’T YOU?
The Olympic movement is slowly but surely going down the drain, together with the rest of the old world order (aka, Western-dominated NWO). Perhaps it’s good riddance?
You all know the OAR flag, don’t you?

Ukraine Poroshenko’s Secret Letters to FSB Leaked by Georgian TV
This story has been all the buzz for several days now. Georgian TV channel Rustavi-2 has published on Facebook the snapshots of two secret letters sent by current president of Ukraine Petr Poroshenko to Russian FSB. The authenticity of these letters is not being questioned by anyone, nor is it being denied by Poroshenko or his office.
The letters were written in February 2007. Being a chocolate magnate, Petr Poroshenko had quite a lucrative business in Russia, as well as Ukraine. He owned two factories in Russia: Roshen in Lipetsk oblast and Bogdan in Nizhny-Novgorod oblast.
When he was purportedly denied entry into Russia, he wrote letters addressed to FSB in which he swore that he was a friend of Russia, that he would abide by Russian laws, and that he would never do any harm to Russia. He also confessed that, being one of the founders of the Party of the Regions and then deputy of the Rada, he was against the anti-Russian policies of Viktor Yushchenko.
Viktor Yushchenko was Ukraine’s president from 2004 to 2008, after the Orange Color Revolution and first Kiev Maidan ousted Viktor Yanukovich as the frontrunner for the post. Yushchenko was ‘elected’ after the unlawful 3rd round of the election farce took place. However, Yushchenko, a generally acknowledged US agent (and married to ex-US State Department employee), was pushed to the top and became Ukraine president, contrary to constitution.
However, he quickly became unpopular, and he lost to Viktor Yanukovich yet again in 2008. Yanukovich was elected by the Russian-speaking majority of Eastern, Southern and Central Ukraine, including Kiev. He was Ukrainian president till 2014, when violent Maidan-2 and illegal coup brought to power the current Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, trained, financed an supported by US and EU.
This violent clique, first headed by Turchinov and Yatsenyuk, and later by Poroshenko, initiated the war in Donbass and declared its desire to join NATO and EU, while promoting extreme Russophobia and hatred of everything Russian. Different members of Ukraine’s junta, military and ruling class, at different times threatened Russia with attack and swore to annihilate all Russians, along with language and culture. The hatred of everything Russian has become the new dark religion of Ukraine.
In his 2007 letters to FSB Poroshenko went further to declare that he was doing everything in his power to attract more investments and business to Russia through his two factories.
Meanwhile Ukraine’s elites, with Poroshenko at the helm, have been involved heavily since 2014 in demolishing any remaining ties and any business with Russia, as well lobbying hard for more sanctions against Russia. They rejoiced and declared victory every time such sanction by the US and EU were prolonged or expanded.
Therefore, as we see, Poroshenko’s letters directly contradict the present doctrine of Ukraine’s junta and its ruling classes.
After the news of the Georgian leak appeared, some deputies of the Ukraine Rada (parliament) proposed investigation into Poroshenko’s FSB connection, in order to determine whether he is the traitor of Ukraine.
The Rustavi-2 channel is one of the main TV channels of Georgia, having very strong ties with the ousted ex-president of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili, who is currently in Ukraine. Saakashvili had a violent disagreement with Poroshenko, who initially illegally gave him Ukraine citizenship and made him governor of the prized Odessa oblast.
However ofter the row, in which Saakashvili accused president Poroshenko, PM Yatsenyuk, interior minister Avakov and entire Ukraine government in corruption, Poroshenko stripped him of citizenship (easy come easy go). Saakashvili was deported from Ukraine to Poland, but with the help of his ukro-nazi supporters he broke back through the border and has been roaming Ukraine since. He has declared his ultimate goal to unseat Poroshenko and replace him as the new leader of Ukraine.
Saakashvili is considered a clown, and by constitution he doesn’t qualify for the post of Ukraine president. Moreover, Saakashvili certainly brings bad luck, as proven by his turbulent history. It was he who got his country into the 4-day 2008 war with Russia, resulting in Georgia’s ultimate humiliation and permanent loss of Abkhazia and S. Ossetia, or 1/3 of the nominal Georgian territory. Currently Saakashvili is a man without a country, a criminal wanted by Georgia and Interpol.
Yet, his ukro-nazi / radical fans from Ukraine deem him the only hope and the only worthy ‘president on Ukraine.’ This just goes to show how low the country has sunk.
The whole thing is very bizarre and it continues the theme I have had on FuturisTrendcast since 2014. You may recall I wrote more than once about ‘Ukraine’s Idiocracy+’ and ‘Ukraine’s spiders in a jar, devouring each other.’
Now, is Poroshenko really an FSB agent? It appears that the hysteria over scary ‘FSB agents,’ ‘Russian hackers’ and ‘Kremlin bots’ taking over the world and every country is rather lucrative and convenient for some. By labeling everyone and everything Kremlin agents the West and the failed regimes such as the one in Ukraine justify their failures and ineptitude.
It isn’t a surprise that such leak occurred now, when the proverbial spiders in the Ukrainian jar, namely Saakashvili, Tymoshenko, Kolomoysky and ukro-nazis are trying to unseat Poroshenko, who’s hanging by the thread. There is a rumor that Kolomoysky is in fact financing and protecting Saakashvili, who has shown very surprising longevity and uncanny ability to elude any extradition and capture attempts.
Of course Poroshenko isn’t an FSB agent. He belongs to the international class of greedy, ruthless, self-serving, heartless capitalists and politicians, who will step over any number of bodies in order to make profit and protect themselves. People like him will cynically lie at a drop of a hat and say whatever suits them at any given moment.
If it suits him to kiss up to FSB and Russia, he’ll do it. If it suits him to kiss up to the EU, US and swear Russia is his number one enemy, he’ll do it just as easily.
Therefore, I won’t be surprised that at this time Poroshenko is also in secret contact with FSB and the Kremlin. He knows that his position in the country is shaky, and he must try to ensure Plan B for himself, his family and his money.
There is a joke in Russia that ‘Rostov isn’t big enough to fit every runaway Ukraine ex-president.’ Rostov is the current residence of the exiled ex-president Viktor Yanukovich.
In 2015-16 another Ukraine oligarch Kolomoysky tried to bargain with Russia and FSB, promising to move his capital to Russia in exchange for immunity, but was denied.
You may recall me writing about another infamous incident. Two years ago he biggest 1990s Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, who later escaped from trial to London, tried to earn Putin’s pardon by promising a lot of dirt on MI6 and US/UK anti-Russian dealings. He was killed in his London mansion by his UK handlers.
Now, just imagine how many juicy secrets Poroshenko can reveal!
Ukraine saga continues — stay tuned for more!

Warning! You may be shocked and may not believe your eyes at what you’ll see below. It may even turn your entire perception upside down, but keep reading!
Recently we’ve discussed what the sport has turned into in the past 20 or so years: REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games? In that report, of December 18, 2017, I said ‘Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz‘. There is no fairness and no hope of justice in sport at this time in our common reality. Pretty depressing, right?
For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.
True, there may be different vantage points and different interpretations of various events, and there has always been politics and geopolitics present in any Big sport.
You hear me often talk about multidimensional truths and the fact that we are transitioning into 4D. This means that everything that was a norm in 3D is changing. I would hope though, that things like honesty, honor and common decency will remain. It saddens me greatly that in our day and age these solid old notions have almost been rendered obsolete and useless. But let me assure you, they will always remain crucially important in any dimension and in any reality.
You may not believe it, but there was a time when the Olympic sport was honest, at least it made an effort to be so. And it was at the height of the Cold War.
1972, Munich Summer Olympics. American basketball is the best in the world. In the previous 36 years the US basketball team never lost, and at that moment in history US has won 63 straight games in Olympic competitions. And no wonder. After all, basketball is an original American sport, invented by a US college professor 150 years ago, who tied two fruit baskets in a college court and offered a new sporting competition to his students.
Unexpectedly, the young Soviet basketball team makes it to the Munich Olympic finals, after beating top contenders such as Cuba, to play against the US team. Throughout the game, both USSR and US go neck to neck, at an early point the USSR even being well ahead. After that the USA gains most points back, and again both go head to head. The match is nearly over and the USA is one point ahead, after 2 penalty throws give it 2 extra points. The score is USA 50 — USSR 49. The Soviet coach takes timeout 3 seconds before the end of game.
And then, something crazy begins to happen… Read the rest of this entry
Like rice without Kimchi or football without Spain: S. Koreans on potential Russia ban from 2018 Olympics:
And how do YOU feel about this falsified anti-Russia doping scandal?
What about the legalized doping by American athletes, including world and olympic champions, who are being shielded from responsibility? How about the double and triple standards IOC, WADA and various Western-oriented countries, as well as those countries’ athletes, display towards Russian athletes?
Have the West, and humans in general, forgotten and forsaken everything the Olympics ever stood for?
What about the witch hunt against everything Russian in the West?
Disgusted yet? I am — very.
Is it time to abolish WADA, IOC and professional sports, completely taken over by the US, UK, Canada and Australia, who dictate their own rules, with no room for anyone else?
Is it time for THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT in recreation, amateur and big sports? Is it time to change how these are practiced and who benefits? Is it time to take politics, negative human ego, greed and pride out of sports?
Isn’t sport supposed to bring people together and make them soar to new heights? But the way it is practiced all it does is divide and suppress.
Is it time for Russia (of which I wrote as early as 2015) to ditch Olympics and organize alternative Games, perhaps recreating the very successful experience of the Soviet Goodwill Games?
Does the sport, the way it is practiced by most, bring out the worst in humans? Is it something that is low-calibrated and outdated?

From Inessa S: At the 2017 APEC Summit, held between 10 – 11 November in Vietnam, a bilateral meeting between Presidents Putin and Trump was supposed to take place. Russia’s Press Secretary, Dmitry Peskov, stated that “while both sides were trying to organise the meeting, the United States offered a time and place that only suited them.” “The only time proposed was that which suited the Americans, and they offered only one place – a room that was rented by the Americans,” he said. Peskov reiterated that the last meeting of the Presidents, at the G20 in Hamburg, was held on American diplomatic territory, and, by diplomatic protocol, this time the meeting was supposed to take place on Russian diplomatic territory. “The Americans showed no flexibility, and unfortunately no other alternative offers were provided, so the meeting could not take place,” Putin’s press secretary added. Nevertheless, the leaders of the two countries had a number of informal talks on the sidelines of the APEC summit, and whoever was responsible for the non-meeting, “would be punished” – Putin said in jest. Donald Trump similarly voiced a positive association with Russia, albeit he said that he trusted American intelligence services in the investigation of “Russian interference” in the presidential elections in the United States. This differs from what he said earlier – when asked by journalists if he believes the Russian president, Trump replied: “Every time we see each other, he says, “I didn’t do it. “And I believe that, I really believe that if he tells me this, then he hasn’t. I think he’s very offended by this, if you want to know the truth.” It must be remembered that the concept of the “deep state” is very real in the US – and Trump has to play to both sides, that is the intelligence community, and the American public. Reading between the lines, he at least made it clear that no “17 agencies” existed that manufactured “the Russian dossier”, that the US mainstream media propagated wildly.

In late December 2016 US, still under Obama, suddenly announced seizure of Russian diplomatic properties and expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic staff, together with families. People with school children were given less than 48 hours to clear out of the country, in violation of any and all human rights, and right before New Year’s and Christmas.
At that time, Russia did nothing, awaiting Trump’s presidency and hoping he would conduct a more sane policy.
There was a PROMISE made by Trump — and therefore an expectation by the Russian side — that US would return illegally expropriated Russian diplomatic properties. This promise was supposed to materialize during or after the long-anticipated meeting between Putin and Trump during G20 in Hamburg, Germany. Nothing transpired and Trump together with Tillerson dodged all Russian inquiries.
Vladimir Putin meets Donald Trump at G20 in Hamburg, Germany
After waiting for any progress till the end of July, Russia announced that US diplomatic staff in the country was being reduced by 755 people, to maintain parity with the number of Russian diplomatic staff in the US. The reduction comes into effect as of September 1. The number of US staff remaining in Russia is to stay at 455, which would be on par with the number of Russian diplomats in the US.
As is apparent from the blown out of proportion numbers of US diplomatic staff, said ‘staff’ was very hard at work trying to orchestrate a Kiev-style Maidan and color revolution in Russia, in time for Russian presidential elections in March 2018.
A warehouse on the outskirts of Moscow and a dinky US dacha near Moscow were also ordered to be vacated. To be sure, the little dacha / summer cabin in the woods near Moscow does not come close to the Russian diplomatic resort property expropriated by the US. Russia bought that resort in 1970s and paid $1.2 mln at the time. Therefore, Russian private property was illegally expropriated by the US. Meanwhile, the dacha property near Moscow was GIVEN to the US diplomats as a diplomatic gesture.
Another thing that is striking is that Russian authorities gave American diplomats and their families a full month to wrap up their affairs and move out of the country. If any of them had school children, they were hardly affected as it was in the summer, and enough time was given to find new schools for the kids. Let’s recall that USA simply THREW OUT Russian families from the country, not even giving them enough time to pack, and it happened in the middle of a school year!
But that was only the beginning of this new diplomatic 4D war. As many around the globe have noticed, there is no difference whether it’s Bush, Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama, or Trump. US is only happy when it creates conflict and wars all over the globe. They are too afraid to attack Russia directly. In fact, as I’d predicted since 2014, they’ll NEVER DARE. But they find ways to do it insidiously and clandestinely, escalating conflict in every way they can. This is the nature of the beast…
Where are all of Trump’s campaign promises, such as pulling out of Afghanistan and Iraq, improving relations with Russia, making a peaceful effort in Syria? Instead we see Trump and the crazies around him escalating N. Korean crisis, getting into fights with China, sending more troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, interfering in Syria, Picking fights with Iran, promising lethal weapons to the fascist Kiev junta in order to attack the people of Donbass and provoke Russia, and as a cherry on the cake — new escalation of diplomatic conflict with Russia.
Recently US announced that all US visas to Russian citizens were being canceled. Moreover, US completely stopped giving out new US visas to Russian citizens. It was also announced by the US State Department that all visas being presently processed will be denied and money will NOT be refunded. In addition to everything, in a true highway robber style, they also stiffed people for their money.
But apparently, not too many Russians apply for US visas, so it turned out to be a pin prick. Those ‘Russians’ who are on US payroll, tasked by their handlers to perform anti-Russian work within the country, will continue getting their visas to the US as they did previously. But normal Russian citizens won’t, and not many are that interested, anyway.
Therefore, denying all Russian visas, present and future, wasn’t enough. That was quickly discovered by the US. They thought long and hard and decided to do some more spectacular damage to Russia-US relations. Earlier today US State Department announced that US shuts down the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco, CA, as well as consular annexes in Washington D.C. and New York.
They hope, said the US State Dept statement, that after this gesture by the US, US-Russia relations will finally begin improving. Anyone rolling on the ground from laughter yet?..
And, in its normal highway bandit manner, the generous US yet again has given 48 hours to Russian families to leave the country.
I had predicted since early 2016 that Trump would be put in that proverbial ‘straitjacket,’ not being able to move and make good on any of his promises, and that he would be made toe the line.
It happened exactly as predicted, and then some. But I’m finding that I was being too nice, giving him too much benefit of the doubt. In fact, Trump caved in to pressure so quickly and so fully that some people’s jaws dropped. Instead of ‘draining the swamp,’ per his campaign promises, he promptly and very successfully got sucked into it, all the way to the brim of his orange hair. Looks like he and his loyal followers are now very happy to co-exist in the same swamp together with the outdated system they vowed to change and those pundits of the system Trump claimed had to go.
I said a couple of months ago that you can forget Trump and all his promises. He has become an ordinary lame duck US president, and he will toe the line as he is told, just to survive. He is now working hard to show his real Dark State masters that he is a good little boy and deserves to finish his term, without impeachment.
In other words, Donald Trump turned out to have even less backbone than anticipated.
The Dark State wants to preserve status quo, and it’s doing a splendid job at it. And the problem? All they are achieving is delaying the day or reckoning. The longer it is delayed, the worse the weight of the USA’s karmic debt will become. Debt repayment may be delayed for several more years, but not much longer than that, as we discussed in Earth Shift Webinar 4.
And in conclusion:
There is a rumor that Rex Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as US Secretary of State. Per reports, he is fed up, but is trying to finish one year and leave by the end of 2017, so it looks good on his resume. Rats are abandoning the sinking ship.
After leaving, Tillerson will have a lot of damage control to do. I strongly suspect it’ll be too little too late to fix business relations with Russia for Exxon Mobil and other US companies.
It has been known that large American companies have been unsuccessfully lobbying US Congress not to impose new sanctions on Russia, saying that it would damage their business with Russia, as well as that with the EU. EU companies and key EU countries as a whole are hard hit by the new US energy sanctions against Russia. So are US energy giants, such as Exxon Mobil. EU is considering certain response sanctions against the US companies doing business in the EU. At the very least, US companies will find it harder to work in the EU. Yet, none of this stopped the Congress from passing anti-Russian sanctions.
Back in 2014 I said that we should forget the old adage that ‘politics is concentrated economics’ and that economy is what drives geopolitics. This is an outdated notion that only worked in Period 7, for some very specific reasons discussed Earth Shift Webinar 4. Here’s my formula: In PERIOD 8 and throughout this entire EARTH SHIFT, it is geopolitics that is primary, while economy is its servant and appendix.

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
On May 2 Putin had a phone conversation with Donald Trump, during which the two agreed to meet soon, probably during the approaching German G20 Summit. On May 3, 2017 Putin has met with Turkish president Erdogan. Clearly these two events are tied with Merkel’s visit. Trump and Putin meeting in Germany means the host needs to check in with both. In addition to the EU and German needs, Merkel seems to have assumed the temporary role of a liaison between Russia and US. Meanwhile Erdogan’s visit has a clear Russian gas pipeline / Turkish Stream underpinning, which is also tied to Syria. Erdogan’s message is (as I long predicted): Turkey’s direction is to distance itself from the US and EU and get closer to Russia.
On May 2, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has visited Sochi to meet with Vladimir Putin. The date was agreed upon two months prior, after Merkel’s persistent requests. Curiously, Putin found no day in his busy schedule other than May 2…
Merkel came to Moscow with several goals:
1. To compare notes on Ukraine and Minsk-2 negotiations, which – predictably – came to a standstill due to Kiev junta’s violations.
2. To make sure the construction of the crucial Nord Stream 2 was on track and to check with Putin how it could be pushed through before it’s too late.
Incidentally, Nord Stream 2 is a competing project with Turkish Stream. Both Germany and Turkey are in a competition who will get to build the pipe faster and who will get to transport more Russian gas.
3. To try scoring some political points before German elections, by showing German MSM present at the Putin-Merkel presser how tough she is on ‘bad’ Russia.
THE CURIOUS CHOICE OF THE DATE
It’s safe to say that Putin deliberately chose May 2. What’s so special about this particular date? Two things:
1. On May 2, 1945 Soviet troops took over Berlin, installing that famous Red Victory Banner over the defeated Reichstag, and officially ending WWII. It would take a few more days to draft the capitulation agreement, which would be signed on May 8 German time and on May 9 Russian time.
2. On May 2, 2014 ukro-nazi fascists, supported by Germany, US and EU, burned dozens (by some accounts, hundreds) of people alive on Odessa’s Kulikovo Polie. The only crime of these peaceful protesters was that they disagreed with the ukro-nazi Kiev regime and wanted to speak their native Russian language.
(Putin chose the joint Sochi presser to remind Merkel and German MSM present, that Odessa massacre went entirely unnoticed by the ‘democratic free world,’ no investigation took place and culprits walked free: PUTIN about Odessa Video – notice Merkel looking down.)
For the most part, negotiations were conducted behind closed doors. But the public part is very telling indeed.
As to Minsk-2, there was a surprising unity between Putin and Merkel, to a huge disappointment of Kiev. Minsk-2 has to be observed. There won’t be re-negotiation of the original terms, and contrary to Kiev’s continued hopes, there won’t be a new agreement.
Nord Stream 2 is another sticky point. Kiev junta, as well as its ‘friends’ – most notably Poland and the Baltics – keep hoping that Nord Stream 2 won’t be built. The construction of the second branch of the Russian gas pipeline to Germany will render obsolete the old Soviet pipeline through Ukraine.
The Ukraine pipeline is presently used for the transit of a significant amount of Russian gas to Europe, although the amount of transit diminishes every year as more gas gets rerouted. To this day, Russian gas transit is the biggest foreign revenue source for Ukraine.
Gazprom has long announced that after the current gas transit agreement expires in 2019, Russia won’t renew it. This effectively means the following:
- Russia plans to discontinue using Ukraine as the lead gas transiter to Europe – and nothing can change that. The only destinations to which Russian gas will still be delivered through Ukraine after 2018 will be Moldova and Pridnestrovie.
- As of the end of 2018 Ukraine will lose its leverage over both Russia and EU. In turn, US will lose leverage over Russia and EU by the means of Ukraine. And of course, USA’s and EU’s leverage over Russia and Ukraine will greatly diminish as well. This inevitably will change the geopolitical landscape. As I predicted all along, as it loses its importance as a pressure point against Russia, the US and EU will have no choice but to withdraw from Ukraine.
- Consequently, if Europe wants to receive Russian gas after 2018, it has to hassle.
Hence the German effort to ensure Nord Stream 2 is on track. German parliament has recently approved Nord Stream 2 speedy construction. The new 6.6 bln euros in loans have been allocated to the project.
During Sochi visit Merkel confirmed that Germany is fully on board regarding Nord Stream 2 by hinting that EU regulations would slow down the construction and that they should not apply to this pipeline.
Based on the above, you’d think that Putin and Merkel were the best of pals. Putin confirmed that Germany was Russia’s leading trade partner No. 2, after China. Putin also said that the trade volume between Russia and Germany grew by 43% since last year.
Merkel piped in by saying that there are differences, but dialogue is the only way to understand each other’s position.
Where did all the talk about punishing and isolating Russia go? Where are those anti-Russian sanctions? As I predicted since 2014, ‘They’ll huff and puff for a couple of years, and then everything will get back to normal – just like it happened after 2008 Georgia – S.Ossetia war.’ I also said that the appearance of the sanctions will stay, while in reality business and trade will go on, bypassing them.
Predictions on track: 2 years after 2014, Russian trade with Germany is suddenly up by 43%. Let’s also recall that Saakashvili of Georgia was out of his presidency 2 years after he attacked S.Ossetia, and that Abkhazia and S.Ossetia would never return to Georgia. Ukraine is following closely in Georgia’s tracks.
VIDEO: Putin – Merkel joint presser, Sochi, May 2, 2017 (ENG translation)
The political part of the meeting had an entirely different tone. Merkel dragged (excuse me, brought) with her to Sochi an entire entourage of ‘journalists’ representing German MSM. The questions they asked during joint presser can only be characterised as aggressive in their ignorance and dumbness – just confirming a sorry state of the Western MSM. Listen to the questions and Putin and Merkel answers on video above.
Question from a German journalist, ‘Why did Russia interfere in US elections and is Merkel afraid of Russian interference in German election?’
Putin’s exceedingly patient and diplomatic reply: Russia never interfered in other countries’ internal affairs. The opposite is true for the West: it constantly interferes in Russian affairs. Further, Putin explained that allegations of Russian interference in the US elections have never been confirmed; it was just a rumor spread for USA’s internal political reasons; therefore, the German journalist’s assumption of Russia’s interference in German elections is based on a rumor.
Another German MSM representative called the Donbass people ‘separatists,’ to which Putin replied that the civil war and Donbass catastrophe are consequences of an illegal coup and illegal power garb in Kiev. It was Kiev that attacked the people of Donbass, forcing them to defend themselves. Putin also expressed his hope that German MSM would not twist his words and that it will have anough common dicency to publish his answer.
Merkel replied that Germany considers the Kiev authorities to be ‘legal and democratically elected.’
Merkel has made more embarrassing remarks. She implored Putin to ‘look into the reported violations of the rights of minorities,’ namely, gays in Chechnya and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Then she decided to lecture Putin on human rights. Per Frau Merkel, Russian authorities were not as gentle and nice to protesters as they should’ve been.
Putin did the absolutely correct thing by diplomatically reminding Merkel that the Russian law enforcement are gentlemen of the highest caliber compared to their Western counterparts. PUTIN: “In Europe they have no qualms about indiscriminate use of tear gas, water cannons and batons to disperse demonstrators.”

P.S. There is one more important reason May 2 was chosen for Merkel’s visit. On May 2 people in Odessa and all over the world commemorated the 3rd anniversary of the Odessa tragedy. Per reports, ahead of May 2 Poroshenko was in a frantic state, admonishing his law enforcement to make absolutely sure no ukro-nazis attack citizens attending the commemorative events. Such attacks are a regular occurrence in today’s Ukraine.
Let me reveal to you what went on behind the scenes: Poroshenko and Kiev were warned by Germany to make sure nothing happens that could look bad for Merkel during her Russian visit. Any violence against peacefully mourning citizens would confirm that Kiev junta is a terrorist regime. If any provocation took place in Odessa, Putin would have a terrific opportunity to rub Merkel’s nose in it.
Therefore, by choosing May 2, Putin allowed the people of Odessa to mourn and commemorate their friends and family in peace.
