LADA RAY WEBINAR 1
Also from Lada Ray:
Lada here. Thanks and big thumbs up to all those brave pioneers who boldly entered the unchartered territory of the first Live Lada Ray Webinar experience on Sunday, February 4, 2017! 😉 We appreciate your support!
Almost 90 people signed up for the live event. I thought it was a terrific first live webinar, with lots of interesting intel, predictions and more, revealed! In Part 2 we had a very extensive Q&A that went well beyond the topic of the webinar (below you can read the highlights and a list of live questions Lada answered in Part 2).
To improve our future webinar experience and to get rid of those pesky little glitches that a few of you may have experienced (yes, we’ve already emailed you, and we’ll continue looking into that), we will be sending out the feedback questionnaire in a couple of days. Please consider filling it out for us: it’ll help tremendously with future events.
We are also getting a lot of people who were unable to attend the live event, but who have been purchasing the webinar after. A heartfelt WELCOME to all of you! The webinar is now live on LadaRay.com. It is available for purchase on the WEBINARS page.
LIVE LADA RAY WEBINAR 1

Examples of how Trump is put in a ‘straight jacket.’ What Trump can and cannot do.
New State Dept Secretary Rex Tillerson as an example.
Trump’s importance for the Earth Shift and his example for the upcoming EU shift.
Prediction on whether Germany’s Angela Merkel will be re-elected for the fourth term. Also, French elections prediction. NOTE, THESE ARE PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS – I’LL HAVE UPDATES LATER IN THE YEAR!
Ukraine and Eurasia – can US and Russia work together, and what to expect from Trump. Big changes re. Ukraine coming – when?
Syria, war on terror, ISIS and Middle East – new cooperation between Russia and US possible?
Russia-China-US triangle and the Kissinger plan. The New Silk Road and China’s conundrum. How will Russia behave? Historic parallels: Kissinger’s role during Nixon administration.
Lada Ray predictions: Will anti-Russian sanctions be taken off? Do Russians want sanctions off? What can Trump offer Russia? Russian strategy and responses?
Much more in PART 1!
Many great questions arrived before, during and after live webinar from our LIVE participants. We answered as many as possible during the webinar. We have decided that we’ll answer additional questions we were unable to cover, in the future videos. We’ll post these videos FREE on Lada Ray YouTube, for everyone’s benefit; best and most interesting questions will be chosen. Expect first videos appearing towards the end of this week! Links to be posted on FT, and on your private Trump Webinar page – check back in a week or so!
Here are some of the Q&A highlights:
1. Real reason Melania Trump doesn’t want to move to the White House
2. Will Trump survive his first term? Lada Ray predictions, Trump timeline and how it may have changed due to some early actions by Trump.
3. Quantum Calibrations for: Donald Trump, Rex Tillerson, VP Mike Pence, USA as a whole, Russia as a whole, US-Russia relations.
Other questions Lada answered include:
1. Underpopulated Russia and overpopulated China: the risks. Chinese nukes near Russian borders. Russia-China cooperation and joint development of the Far East and Siberia.
2. The shift in Russia-Japan relations and Japan-US relations. Will Trump remove the US military base from Okinawa?
3. Was the Japanese earthquake and tsunami that led to Fukushima a natural disaster, or was it deliberately orchestrated by the globalists? How was it done? What Lada sees.
4. Where it’s best to live in Russia. Emigration from the US to Crimea and Stavropol. Best cities to live in Russia.
5. Israel-Palestine conflict – who’s to blame? How will Trump approach relations with Israel? Shift in US-Israel and Russia-Israel relations.
6. US, Russia, Iran, Israel, Syria, the Middle East – what to expect? How the US is losing its grip on the Middle East.
7. Will Trump authorize the disclosure about aliens? Will Trump authorize the 9/11 truth disclosure? (Here we go into the 3D reality, plus what are Trump’s real role and real goals.)
8. What can Lightworkers do to assist this time of the Great Earth Shift?
9. Will there be a relief for the Mother Earth soon? Will Trump presidency be good or bad for the environment; what can we expect going forward? (In this answer we go into the human consciousness, fossil fuel and alternative energy, as well as ‘free energy.’ We discuss how the levels of human consciousness and how our way of life correspond with the level on which our consciousness vibrates.)
10. Were there alien bases in Antarctica? Was a secret base built there by the German Nazis during WWII? What really happened in Antarctica and WHEN? Forbidden history of Russia.
11. Is Melania like Jackie Kennedy? Melania Trump quantum calibrations, compared to Jackie Kennedy’s quantum calibrations. Lada’s opinion of both.
P.S. Almost forgot: in Q&A we also discussed Reinventing Collapse by D. Orlov and how I see the future of the US unfolding; where Orlov was right and where the US collapse will be entirely different from how he describes is. My terms explained: What is “The Mirror Collapse” and what do I mean when I say that “the US approaches collapse from the opposite direction than the USSR did.”
There were other interesting questions answered.
Much more info and predictions will be revealed in the upcoming webinars and in my book The Putin Enigma.

WHAT IS THIS WEBINAR ABOUT?
As many of you who’ve listened to EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER, plus Addendum and YT follow-up, know, many of my predictions, expressed in October-November 2016, have come true. Trump, before even taking office, has been mired in various restrictions and scandals; he found that he has to compromise, and so do his prospective nominees. Much of what Trump has said about Russia and Putin during his campaign and after doesn’t match. My prediction that Trump and his people will be put in a straight jacket and compromised, that they won’t be able to fulfill many of their promises, is coming true. Also true is coming my prediction that despite all this, Trump will still be a factor of change in the US and worldwide; that many around the world will take the opportunity to shift away from the US domination while internal struggle of the elites is underway.
This upcoming webinar is designed to build on the EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER. However, in the webinar, I plan to go much further.
I promise not to hold back. I’ll tell you everything I know and foresee regarding Trump and the future of the US, West, as well as the rest of the world as it relates to Trump’s presidency. I also plan to tell you about how Russians and Russian government REALLY feel about Trump and what they expect going forward from his government. Incidentally, I’ll reveal what I really think about Russian hacking scandal.
I’ll also tell you about the renewed game of chess within the US-Russia-China triangle, and the role of Kissinger in it.
I’ll give you my prediction regarding US-UK-EU relationship and what I see happening in the next 1-3 years. I’ll reveal new things about Ukraine and where its relations with the US are going. We’ll also touch upon NATO, Syria and the Middle East, and what will happen to the US dominance.
I’ll tell you what I see happening under Trump in the US domestic and international policies.
Most importantly, we’ll tie all this with the ongoing Earth Shift and define where Trump and the upcoming period of 2017-2019 falls in the grand scheme of things.
To tell you the truth, there are some very sensitive things I haven’t felt quite comfortable revealing in a public format of FT, YT or ESRs. However, I plan to share the knowledge I was unable to share previously, with those of you who are serious. I guarantee I will reveal the entire truth and give you as clear a picture as possible on the above topics.
As a result of this webinar you may be shocked, disappointed; or perhaps, elated, hopeful or relieved. Perhaps what I’ll tell you will confirm what you’ve suspected all along.
Regardless, I can promise you this: what I tell you will open your eyes. It’ll help guide you through turbulent and confusing waters of today and tomorrow. It’ll bring clarity, truth and profound understanding, which, in my opinion, are very rare and valuable commodities these days.
I hope to see you at the webinar. If you can’t attend, you can still purchase it, and download and listen later at your convenience.
Seating is limited, sign up today at the WEBINAR page!

Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force? (US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine, Syria)
What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force?
(Examples: US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine, Turkey, Syria)
In my two recent posts about Ukraine (Solo Warriors vs. Kiev Junta) and Moldova (Moldova Elections) we talked about both countries losing catastrophic amounts of population since their independence from Russia in 1991 (please go back to articles for exact numbers).
The problem of losing the population is common to all 14 post-Soviet republics, except Russia. To be sure, Russia lost a significant number of population in the 1990s. I wrote previously why and how that happened, and I won’t go into it again here. The trend began reversing in the 2000s as Russia began gaining population, first through immigration, and lately, also through a stimulation of internal birthrate.
You may recall Obama proclaiming in 2015 something to the effect ‘that Russian economy is in shatters and that no one wants to live in Russia.’ In reality, per global statistics, as of 2015 Russia is world’s No. 3 country for immigration after USA and Germany, according to Wikipedia, with 11.6 million migrants. The current global data seems somewhat distorted due to the latest German refugee crisis, and also due to the fact that ‘migrants’ and ‘refugees’ are included in this statistics, along with the true immigration. The 2013 data, before Ukraine and Middle East refugee crises began, showed Russia at number 2 position after USA for immigration, with 10 million+ legal immigrants. Actually, it’s hard to understand how Germany suddenly jumped to No. 2 position in 2015, if they received under 1.5 million (or 1.1 million as other data suggests) migrants, while in 2013 Germany was far below Russia’s 10 million, and since 2014 Russia officially accepted about 1 million refugees from Ukraine, plus millions of migrants (data varies, but it’s anywhere between 2 and 5 million). As I said, the data is Western and does seem politically motivated.
Incidentally, Russia has developed a revolutionary and humane system for registering and keeping track of immigration, in which immigrants, refugees and migrant workers are encouraged to register with no red tape and for a nominal fee, after which they pass a light exam and promptly get their work permit. The system worked wonders and cut down drastically on illegal immigration. However, since Ukraine crisis began, millions more of refugees and migrants flooded into Russia, some of whom remain unregistered and live with relatives, and others qualify for an expedited citizenship, without being counted as migrants.
Interestingly enough, unlike the US or EU, Russia never complained of this huge influx of migrants. At the same time, Turkey also experienced 2.5 million+ refugee influx as a result of Syrian war and general destabilization of the Middle East.
I began with this information in order to establish some factual parameters. But this post isn’t about the blame game. I think those who are awake and thinking know very well who paid billions of dollars to destabilize both Ukraine and Syria.
However, as a part of Lada Ray’s Spiritual Geopolitics this article goes beyond the mundane and the physical. It also goes beyond historical processes, as we know them.
The entire world is presently experiencing large movements of populations from one country and/or continent to another. What causes masses of people to suddenly decide to pick up and move across borders? What makes one country especially attractive or unattractive for millions to live? Much has been said about the physical, 3rd Dimension (3D) aspects of the issue. Better salaries and social nets, running from war and seeking stability, better future are named among the reasons. Much has been said, but the baffling effect of mass migration remains, with no solution in sight.
This is the result of an erroneous and severely limited 3D approach to the problem that, in fact, resides in the sphere of energy and higher consciousness. However, to this day I don’t see anyone addressing the problem the way it needs to be addressed, in other words, multi-dimensionally.
In this post I’ll explain what happens when any country experiences a surge in its life force, or when there is a life force loss, and how that is reflected in the gain or loss of the population, resulting in the improved or worsened future of a country. The most severe cases are when a tribe or country succumb to foreign absorption and/or disappear altogether. This applies equally to individual cities, villages and any person on our planet.
I describe the Etherial Energy, through the presence of which we exist, as two-fold:
1. Cosmic Life Force
2. Earthly Chi (Chi – is Chinese for ‘life force’)
Thereafter, these two will be referred to collectively as life force.
The rise or loss of life force occurs first in higher dimensions, which are invisible to most humans. Therefore, this initial life force gain or loss is initially perceived only by few humans. Little by little either gain or loss of life force begins manifesting tangibly in the physical 3rd dimension.
THE SURGE OF THE LIFE FORCE
The surge, or rise, of the life force usually manifests as multiple symptoms, including but not limited to: heightened artistic, business and social activity, rapid gains in population through immigration, coupled with accelerated childbirth among citizens. The country in question launches many simultaneous successful mega-business and infrastructure development projects that are designed to expand the opportunity, convenience and upward mobility. Like a cherry on top, all this is topped off with a heightened energy of creation, expressed through art, business, trade, sport, communication, and other spheres of life. The visible cumulative effect is that the country in question becomes richer, more energized and attractive for living.
The rise of life force works usually as a veritable snowball effect. The first ones to notice it, begin acting on it in the spheres of life I described above. As they do, they supply more energy to the cumulative life force. As more energy is generated, more people notice it and begin their own contributions to the collective life force. At some point the life force grows so big that it becomes visible, like a light beacon, to people from far away. Initially, these are typically those whose own life force vibration is the best match. This is how immigration begins. It’s no secret that the first to immigrate to a high energy place are those with most money, best talents and skills, in short, those whose high energy matches best the life force of the place in question. Later, those who have perhaps lesser talents and less money, but more spunk and nerve tend to move to a high life force area, sensing more growth opportunity there.
A great example of how it happened in the past was the United States of America immigration in the 17th-20th centuries. As then revolutionary idea of ‘religious freedom and government by the people for the people’ took hold, millions immigrated to the US from Europe. The snowball effect generated an explosion in business, trade and communications innovation. USA grew exponentially, until it began slowly rotting beneath the surface. Today, USA is an illustration of how nothing lasts forever. It is still attractive for some third-world countries and poor emigrees. But the wealthy, most talented and smartest have begun a quiet exodus. It always begins quietly, because the ones who see deeper and further do not advertise their moves.
When an avalanche of defections begins, it’s usually too late. This means that the life force loss fully manifested in tangible 3D. At that point it becomes easy for anyone to see.
Another good example of the rise of life force are the Asian Tigers in the second half of the 20th century. Japan was another such prominent example in the 1980s.
The most significant contemporary examples of the surge in life force are Russia and China.
China has been experiencing an incredible, sustained life force rise since the 1980s, and it’s still going strong. Not everything that goes on in China fits into the model I described above. For example, due to overpopulation, when life force began rising, and with it the living standards of the population, the government sought to limit population growth via the 1 child policy, which in the case of China was justified. Presently, as the prosperity is slowly taking hold in China, the 1 child policy is being relaxed. Immigration numbers is another category where China lags behind most top countries. If anything, China still loses population and currency at record rate. However, since there is an overpopulation of Chinese on mainland, the loss of the population may actually be a blessing in disguise. In some other categories, such as business activity and mega-projects, China performs a lot like the classic USA of the 17th-20th centuries.
Russia, on the other hand, is a pretty full-fledged example of the long-term sustained rise of the life force, which began in the early-to-mid 2000s and is gaining momentum this decade. The only criteria that lagged till recently was internal business activity growth. This was due to Yeltsin’s robber baron privatization and ceding of the country’s business, trade and finance control to the West. This handicap is being slowly and carefully reversed by Putin and his team since early 2000s. As the reversal happens, more and more internal business activity occurs. At this point the business/ trade activity is closing in on optimal numbers, despite the crisis generated by Ukraine events, anti-Russian sanctions and low oil prices.
The following criteria of an increasing life force are top-notch in Russia:
1. Creative energy in all areas of art, life and business continuously on the rise since the 90s – and growing.
2. Russia’s willingness and ability to conceive and successfully execute a large number of simultaneous strategic infrastructure and economic mega-projects is of paramount importance and a sure indicator of a spike in the country’s life force. Such mega-projects require not only huge investments, but also a vision, large number of qualified specialists, complete production cycle and sustained multi-year commitment. The following mega-projects have been and are being developed: Nord Stream 1 & 2; The Kerch Crimea Bridge; the Crimean peninsula development; Power of Siberia pipeline; Sochi/Krasnaya Polyana project; high-speed railroads; redevelopment of Moscow and other cities, including the new advanced transportation systems (Moscow alone got 2 new ones, including the now completed circular railroad system), new Cosmodrome Vostochniy, to name a few. Russia and Turkey just signed the Turkish Stream deal (finally). Russia is also building the new generation nuclear stations in Turkey, Iran, India and other countries.
3. The internal population increase via childbirth, following a loss of the population in the 90s. This was a slow going and the government made a valiant and bold effort to entice people to have children. The government programs are very generous: they provide new mothers with the so-called ‘mother’s capital.’ This is a nest egg the government sets aside in the new mother’s name after a birth of each child. The capital can be used to purchase a family home or to send that child to college. Neither the father, nor anyone else, has access to the capital, the woman alone controls it. The mother’s capital increases exponentially with every next child born.
(It has to be noted that the two most significant countries that experienced in the past 20-30 years the stunted childbirth and consequent population contraction are Russia and Germany. Japan may be going through a somewhat similar problem. It is important because Russia and Germany are the two countries that suffered most through 20th century as a result of 2 world wars, plus subsequent division of each country. For Germany: the division on East and West; for Russia: the collapse of the USSR. )
4. Last but not least, large immigration numbers are a sure indicator of a surge in life force. This is especially true when the best qualified and wealthiest arrive en masse into the country. This has been the case in Russia. Much like in the 20th century USA, people who were doctors and engineers in their respective countries may come in to do menial jobs, paying much better in Russia than a professional position in their respective country. Another interesting phenomenon is the increasing immigration into Russia by the US and EU citizens; this especially concerns Germany and the Baltics. Yet another phenomenon is the repatriation to Russia of the former successful emigrants to the US and EU. This is accompanied with a repatriation of some Russian capital, which used to reside offshore (this is a slow and tedious process, but it is present).
STABLE to STAGNANT LIFE FORCE
It’s all relative: each country has to be taken in its historic perspective. Most people don’t think geopolitically or care about long-term; oftentimes they simply want to live in more stable and well-to-do countries. When a country is simply stable and well-to-do, compared to a war and poverty experienced in neighboring countries, such country will also experience an inflow of population, even if other characteristics, such as heightened internal population growth, strategic innovative development projects and heightened creativity are absent.
Stable to stagnant life force is the case in UK, Germany, France – in short the EU and Europe in general. USA, Australia and Canada are also stable to stagnant. The problem with such false stability is that it is only a matter of time for the status quo to change. A sufficient push at the right time – and such countries will tumble off their pedestal. Eventually this will happen. But this is a topic for another day.
LOSS OF THE LIFE FORCE
The loss of the life force manifests tangibly in 3D as diminishing, and eventually dying, business, trade, cultural and social activity. Another manifestation is a disastrous loss of the quality of education and visible zombifying of the population through propaganda. In most cases it manifests as the gradual (or fast) dumbing down of the population.
The dying business, industrial and social activity, coupled with dumbing down of the population, causes a catastrophic population loss. As the quality of life goes down, people vote with their feet.
The next step can manifest as:
1. Slow (or fast) death of a ‘tribe’ or national unity in question, accompanied by an absorption of such declining territory by another power. We have plenty of historic examples, the most prominent of which is Western colonialism.
India being colonized by the British Empire is one such prominent example. But India’s ancient life force eventually pulled through and helped rebuild the country. Of course, in big part it became possible due to Soviet help and support. In fact, the very existence of the USSR caused the global colonial system established by the West to crumble (read below on the life force share and life force donation). But Native Americans weren’t so lucky. Their extermination by the aggressive whites, who arrived into their lands and took them over happened before such a formidable force as the Soviet Union came into existence. Therefore, their fate was sealed and they simply vanished.
2. Armed conflict, which can manifest as civil war, as an outside invasion and/or as bands of armed violent thugs roaming the land. We see this second scenario in Ukraine. We also see it in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen.
But look at countries such as Egypt and Turkey: despite all the problems and color revolution or coup attempts, they managed to regroup, solidify and rebuild. Unlike in the above examples, this denotes a pretty high collective life force.
As we have discussed above, the first to leave are those who feel the energy best and can read the invisible signs. The earliest to leave are usually the smartest, most talented and skilled, as well as the wealthiest. Those who have most Chi, most spunk and creative energy follow. The country that loses a huge layer of the smartest, most energetic and talented population becomes severely stunted. This is the situation that has developed in Ukraine.
In fact, the intangible aspect of energy, overlooked or even denied by so many in our 3D world, is what makes the world go round.
Only a society that has sufficient collective energy has a future. This cumulative energy resides in the collective consciousness of a tribe, nation and country. It guides the future development of such nation. This collective energy manifest in our 3D reality as people’s talent, IQ, skill, enthusiasm, positive new ideas, willingness/ability to work and create, readiness to defend one’s country, education, care for the land and diligent preservation of one’s true roots. When these criteria are present, the country in question has a future.
When a nation or country experiences an existential crisis, it is the collective life force of the people that pulls the country out of this crisis. The examples of Turkey and Egypt apply here.
But the best example is the tremendous life force of Russia. Russia has been through many crises and invasions. To name a few: Napoleon invasion, WWI and subsequent 1917 revolution and Civil War, WWII and Hitler’s invasion, the collapse of the USSR. As history has shown, Russia tends to snap out of any crisis that would have finished any other country, rebuild and move forward, in an impossibly record time. In fact, Russia historically has been a global donor of brains, talent, resources and saviors to the world. This is the karma and destiny of the Great Balancer and Stabilizer (read more in RUSSIA – THE GREAT BALANCER).
So far, a national unity that we presently call “Ukraine” doesn’t have sufficient life force to preserve itself. It simply can’t. In fact, according to various polls, anywhere between 30% and 65% of Ukrainians dream about leaving the country. The reason is this: Ukraine was built as a part of the Russian World. In reality, Ukraine consists of several pretty incompatible parts, which never wanted to stay together outside of the big Russia.
To stay separate from Russia Ukraine’s ruling clique has to invent ways to brand Russia enemy No.1. The newest: Kiev announced that it wants to introduce visa regime with Russia. Of course, this way it’ll only hurt its own citizens, millions of whom work in Russia as construction workers and nannies. The most popular train in Ukraine is… Lvov-Kiev-Moscow. Tickets get sold out a week prior. Such is the consequence of the loss of life force and the dumbing down of Ukraine and its government: they are ready to hurt themselves in order to get one up on Russia.
The population is a carrier of ancestral memory, skill and talent. Along with that, the population of any country also carries all of its earned karma, prejudices and shortcomings. If there is enough life force within the collective conscious of a specific country or tribe, then these burdens get resolved in due course as the collective society develops.
If the links to any of the above factors and ancestral memory are severed, such society becomes vulnerable and confused. The links are usually severed through two main and interconnected factors:
1. Deliberate brainwashing and dumbing down of the population by local elites and/or by foreign interests. The goal is to make people forget their real history and roots in order to submit to new rulers.
2. The loss of the most talented and educated population. This top layer of the population is usually the keeper of knowledge and wisdom of the realm.
When that happens the society has three ways to proceed:
Shrivel up and slowly die, succumbing to consciousness reformatting imposed from without. This usually signifies that a specific country or tribe is incapable and/or unwilling to continue in 3D on this planet. There are 2 ways it can happen.
a) Sometimes the tribe or ‘rod’ is so advanced that it ascends: examples are the Maya and Incas. There are more ancient examples as well. Often the remnants of such tribe remain incarnated in 3D despite the generally ascended tribe. These are the carriers of ancestral memory, who are here to remind the rest of earthlings something important. They carry certain residual knowledge and serve as memory triggers for others.
b) The second way is different: it is when a tribe or country has a lot of unfulfilled karma and contradictions it can’t resolve other than by splitting up or dissolving. Ukraine is in this second category.
Find inner resources and rise up like a phoenix out of the ashes. When someone is in an extreme situation, a hardship normally triggers mobilization of one’s inner force in order to survive. Cases have been known of small women displaying unusual strength to fend off much stronger male attackers. When one falls ill, the immune system would kick in to heal the damage. If the organism of a nation is basically healthy, its immune system will kick in, the hidden life force reserve will be found and the health of a nation will eventually be restored.
As in the example of Russia above, it is apparent that the immune system of Russia is exceedingly strong. It has to be, to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders.
Historically, Ukraine tends to be the opposite.
There is always two sides to any coin. External factors have to be taken into account. In part, the present sorry state of Ukraine can be blamed on the severe yang imbalance into which our world has plunged after the collapse of the Soviet Union and proliferation of the aggressively yang West. As I have said many times previously, presently, Russia, the Great Balancer, is attempting to rebalance the world back into a better equilibrium, while US and EU are doing everything to prevent that from happening. The reason US/EU don’t want the world to be in balance is simple: the West can’t afford to lose its unfair advantage, generated by keeping the rest of the world artificially poor and subservient. But there is a rift developing within US and EU elites. The old guard still pulls in this direction, while those who have clearer vision already see that for survival’s sake it’s much better to re-orient themselves towards the new reality.
Ukraine is one of the victims, and at the same time a perpetrator, in this 4D hybrid war against balance and common sense. Ukraine carries a very heavy karma fraught with an entanglement of unresolved issues and guilt about betraying its own past and memory. Until this karma is resolved, there won’t be any forward movement.
As an intrinsic part of the Russian World, and therefore, a part of the Great Balancer, Ukraine also has a destiny to fulfil. Its destiny is glorious. When Ukraine (probably under the name of Novorossia) is back in balance, it will help Russia rebalance the world (and this is what US and certain EU elites try to prevent with all their might).
Other countries volunteer to share their own life force to fortify a fledgling country, thus preserving it and allowing it time to heal. This is done through supplying talent, ideas and investment to fortify the dwindling energy of the population. This happened more than once previously with the territory we now call Ukraine. Russia had invested talent and resources to rebuild Ukraine several times in history.
My prediction: when the time comes, Russia will save Ukraine yet again, by sharing talent with her sisters and brothers. The interesting thing is that this time I foresee Europe, and probably China, also helping out rebuilding Ukraine when the time comes. This will be a nice collective effort, but it has to happen under Russia’s general ‘umbrella.’ No rehabilitation of Ukraine is possible until this junta is gone and until US gets out.
It’s interesting to recall historic examples of such outside life force infusions. A good example was the American Marshall Plan of rebuilding Western Europe after WWII. At the same time, the USSR made a huge investment and sent talent to help rebuild Eastern Europe, China and some other Asian countries after WWII, despite itself suffering from severe war devastation. We’ll leave aside the geopolitical reasons for both of these ‘life force sharings.’ In the 1950s-1980s the USSR also routinely sent talent and investment, built infrastructure to Africa, India, Egypt, Cuba, Vietnam, and other post-colonial countries.
It has to be said that some of the territories of Ukraine (primarily Malorossia/Kiev and western Ukraine) were always historically a no-man’s land. This situation is characteristic of various lands around Black Sea, Baltic Sea, Balkans and Eastern Europe in general. Since very ancient days, except a brief enough stunt when Knyaz’ Oleg transferred the Rus’ state capital from Novgorod to Kiev, those parts were known to bleed the population. The population and talent’s replenishment occurred periodically, when Russia sent talent and specialists back to re-populate and prop up industry, politics and art in Ukraine.
I am a living proof of how everything I described works:
When I was little, as part of the life force and talent share, my parents were sent from Moscow to fortify the expanding transportation system of the Black Sea region of Odessa and Moldova, resulting in my growing up in Odessa (read more in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT).
When I was in school, but already an accomplished interpreter, I was sent to Cuba, to work with the Ministry of Education. Many of my school mates and other Russian specialists worked all over the world, from Nicaragua to Africa.
When the collapse of the Soviet Union was only visible to those few souls who saw deeper and understood more, my family and I left the USSR, after the West began the talent hunt in order to scoop up the best specialists and talented youths, while Russia looked the other way, being preoccupied with repairing the damage to her life force.
Today, as a fully sovereign individual, I don’t allow anyone to control my talent, knowledge and vision. I choose to live where I feel is best for my personal development and work. I choose to contribute freely what I want and can to the world, and I share my knowledge and vision with humanity on my own terms and my own time, through FuturisTrendcast, Earth Shift Report, LadaRay.com and Lada Ray YouTube.

FREE Part 1 of Lada Ray’s newest ESR11, jam-packed with rare & important intel, on YouTube!
Part 1 of Earth Shift Report 11: THE IMPORTANCE of 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTIONS is posted and can be watched free on YouTube. Part 1 length is 1 hour 17 minutes and it is accompanied with a large number of pics and diagrams to enrich your listening experience.
In Part 1 we begin with a discussion of the hottest global events of late, which one way or another are closely related to 2016 Russian Elections of September 18, as well as to the upcoming US Presidential Elections in November 2016.
If you want to know Lada Ray’s unique take on Russian Elections, Putin, United Russia, a conspiracy that was planned after elections and how it failed; if you want Lada’s views on latest global events listed below, please order the complete ESR11 HERE.
In FREE Part 1 we discuss the following:
Latest events in Syria, including the US coalition bombing of Syrian army positions and killing over 60 people, as well as Kerry/Lavrov Syria talks and UN clashes. Lada will give her prediction on whether there will ever be a direct military confrontation between US and Russia.
Lada Ray’s original take on what is going on among US elites (Kerry, State Dept, Pentagon, CIA, FBI), why there is so much flip-flopping and inconsistency and how all this is connected with the developing Earth Shift and the crash of the US Empire.
Ukraine (what can we do without it!). How Russian voters were prevented from voting in Ukraine and the ‘funny way’ in which it backfired. What is happening with gas and coal and how Ukraine will survive this winter. How long has Poroshenko got.
Contrast with Ukraine: how Russian Elections took place in Germany and New Zealand.
Breakaway Pridnestrovie (aka, PMR, Transnistria) announces its intent to join Russia. Can the Crimea precedent help and how PMR is different from Crimea or Donbass. How Russian Elections took place in Pridnestrovie. PMR president Evgeny Shevchuk and upcoming elections. The new oligarchic structure financed from abroad: Sheriff. Why Pridnestrovie citizens dream about being re-united with Russia: how Shevchuk is expected to win running on the platform of re-unification with Russia and cracking down on Sheriff.
(I am intimately familiar with Pridnestrovie. For all about Pridnestrovie, its history, people, culture and politics read ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT and watch my free video report on Lada Ray YT Channel: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)
Russian Elections overview: main numbers, parties, who won, who lost and what to expect in the future. Russian women being elected and appointed to top posts more than ever before (new Elections Chief Ella Pamfilova, Crimea’s Chief Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya, etc.). The most transparent and technologically advanced elections ever. Why pro-West parties had a crushing loss, why United Russia won, and more.

PART 2 is all about Russian Elections 2016, including the overview of main 4 parties, plus 10 other small parties (altogether Russia has 77 registered parties), their platforms and how United Russia won back the constitutional majority. We’ll talk in detail how more and more women are elected, why pro-West ‘neo-liberal’ parties received almost zero votes. How the 4 main parties fared and why.
Elections percentages, constitutional majority and seat distribution. Kadyrov and Chechnya – why turnout of 84% was the highest there.
How these Duma Elections will influence 2018 Russian Presidential Elections. Why they are crucial for Russia’s turnaround and future development (anticipated firings among pro-West parts of Russian Govt; Constitution reform; nationalization of the Ruble).
Rolling back history: lessons of the 2011 Russian Duma Elections, the near coup on Bolotnaya Square and how Russian society got mobilized around Putin. Putin’s surprise win in 2012 (not so surprising: if you recall, back in 2011-12 I predicted the exact percentage with which he won). How anti-Putin Bolotnaya protest electrified pro-Putin patriotic movement in Russia: 300,000 Poklonnaya Gora rally (Starikov, Fedorov). Why there is presently a fight between patriotic parties and organizations.
How United Russia learned its lesson and what it did differently this time.
Will Russian Duma Elections influence US Presidential Elections and how?
Last but not least! The explosive ADDENDUM will talk about the recent arrest of the police colonel Zakharchenko (not to be confused with the Head of DNR Alexandr Zakharchenko) on charges of corruption. In his possession was found a stash of 8bln rubles and 1.5 tons (in weight) of US dollars. What is not being said and what this colossal cash stash was planned to be used for. What was being planned after September 18, Ukraine junta and USA’s role in that failed plan.

Italy’s eurosceptic anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) has achieved a breakthrough by winning mayoral elections in Rome and Turin. 37-year-old Virginia Raggi beat ruling party in Rome. The win is expected to be a massive blow to Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s center-left Democratic Party (PD).
I just finished recording my new SPECIAL PREDICTIONS EARTH SHIFT REPORT 12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU when this breaking news has arrived. When you listen to ESR 12, you’ll see how this bit of news about Virginia Raggi’s Rome win confirms and resonates with everything I discuss in my surprise report.
I’m making every effort to get ESR 12 out on time so you all can hear my predictions regarding the hottest topic of the month BREXIT, before the BREXIT vote takes place in the UK on June 23. We’ll also discuss TTIP/TPP and I’ll share my extensive analytics & predictions on the future of the EU.

The title of the video below in Russian is: ‘Dear Ukrainians, this video is especially for you: Crimean tourism infrastructure flourishes.’ Such title because Kiev MSM and politicians insist that Crimea is falling apart under ‘Russian rule.’ Of course, this is silly and reality cannot be further from the truth. But some people in Ukraine, completely zombified by propaganda, actually believe this. In fact, Crimea was falling apart and dying a slow death under Kiev. Presently, even despite excruciating water, food, transport and energy blockade, Crimea is being fixed up and rebuilt.
It is surfacing every day that those navy and army officers who believed Kiev and left Crimea in 2014 to continue serving in Ukraine army, are now little by little defecting and returning to Crimea. Sometimes whole units defect.
Crimean attractions are world-famous: Yalta’s beaches, gorgeous nature and imperial palaces (say, Levadia Palace where Stalin, Rosevelt and Churchill met in 1945); Swallow’s Nest; world’s largest children’s recreation resort/summer camp Artek,; Sevastopol’s Black Sea fleet base and underground Soviet mega-submarine base; various historic palaces, beaches, parks, rock climbing, natural caves and ethnic food.
On this short video: Crimea is being fixed up from the neglect and abuse it endured during 23 years of being looted by Kiev oligarchs/ nationalistic politicians, and re-styled as an all-year round sea resort with emphasis on rejuvenation spa, health tourism and all-inclusive tours that Russians prefer.
Some gorgeous Black Sea views on this video!
On video: Crimean Bridge projected look – the construction has begun, to be completed by the end of 2018. February off-season Crimean hiking and famous Marble Caves, where natural stalagmite castles and palaces have been built by nature itself.
Next on video: various hotel accommodations with off- and on-season all-inclusive pricing. Next: budget/ inexpensive private sector pricing. Simferopol Airport now receives 5 mln passengers a year, more than during Soviet times. After reconstruction scheduled for 2018 more flights from Russia and abroad will be received.
Kerch Strait option by car or by plane from mainland: you can leave the car in designated parking on mainland side and buy 1/2 price subsidized ticket to a city in Crimea: Yalta, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Feodosia, etc. The bus takes you to ferry and then to your destination. Tickets really do sound very cheap: from Krasnodar to Sevastopol/Yevpatoria/Yalta – about 810 rub.
In the end: Bakhchisarai (the capital of Crimean Tatars) has a park of minis: main architectural attractions of Crimea, with various historic palaces, etc. Crimean Tatar national cooking is shown. Crimean tourist expo in Yalta will choose the best all-inclusive tour route for Crimean season 2016. These are offered by various tour operators. Winner will be chosen by tourist vote.

Despite it’s abundant natural and man-made beauty, Crimea rarely new lasting peace. It has for centuries been a geopolitical hot spot and a bone of contention for great powers vying for control of Black Sea. The real reason has always been the control of Russia’s soft underbelly.
The only time Crimea had any chance for peace and prosperity was when it was an integral part of Russia. Today, it is regaining what it once lost.
Not all is rosy in Crimea, which is natural as a manifestation of the growing pains, magnified as a result of relentless sabotage and acts of terrorism by Ukraine, Turkey, ISIS and US/EU.
The worrying vestige of the ‘independent’ Ukraine’s past – remaining local corruption, neglect, lack of caring for one’s own land and understanding how to govern for the good of all – are also heavy burdens on those who are working extremely hard to return Crimea to its former glory.
However, despite all these difficulties, the general direction is towards optimism, stability, prosperity and hope. Crimea is again beginning to blossom.
External threats continue and they are close by: one of them is the US naval super-base, being secretly built in Odessa, not too far from Crimea, also on the Black Sea shore. Read all about it, along with dire futurist’s predictions in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Another threat is even closer to home: attempts to create a Kosovo-like Muslim enclave in neghboring Kherson and Nikolaev oblasts on the Ukrainian side, populating it by Turks, Crimean Tatar Mejlis and escaped ISIS terrorists. The Odessa Black Sea Gambit story is directly related to the noise around Crimea and clandestine attempts to subvert Nikolaev and Kherson. It is an attempt by the same forces who subverted Ukraine to preserve geopolitical control of the entire Black Sea coast, in order to weaken Russia.

What wouldn’t they do to sell to the populace an increase in Swedish military spending. What wouldn’t they do to drag Sweden into NATO, in the last push to justify the alliance’s existence and to continue encircling Russia with more bases!
Truly, the ‘West can’t live without enemies; this is a part of its self-perception.’ Well said by Swedish peace researcher Jan Oberg: below is his video interview that makes perfect sense, unlike the rhetoric of his government.
‘In a few years Sweden may be engaged in a war with a “qualified opponent” after two centuries of peace, a senior Swedish commander has told soldiers in an internal brochure.’
By ‘qualified opponent’ this, not very qualified, Swedish general means – who do you think! – of course, Russia!
Incidentally, Russia’s military spending constitutes only 8% of NATO’s.
Russia’s military spending is 1/10th of the USA’s.
Silly question: who is the aggressor in this scenario?
On another note, Poland has volunteered to host new and additional US bases and arms on its territory. When asked why, Polish talking heads and officials say this is not directed against Russia, that Russia presently isn’t being thought of as a threat by Poland. This, in fact, is more of a protection against Germany (a fellow NATO member); additionally, this is done for economic, not political, reasons. Those naive enough to believe this bull’s crap in chef’s salad – raise your hands! Hmm… Don’t see any. Anyone? Anyone?!!

As my readers/listeners know, I happen to agree with Starikov on most of his points in this vid. Much of what he says confirms my predictions and analysis on Ukraine, Russia, US, West, dollar and ruble. We had discussed all this in many of my articles, videos and Earth Shift Reports. It’s good to hear the corroborating viewpoint from one of Russia’s top geopolitical analysts and authors.

BELARUS ELECTIONS RESULTS”

Below, I am offering some telling excerpts from this important update, in order to answer some questions I’ve received.
Excerpts from the newly added piece to Earth Shift Report 1:
Urgent update! BELARUS ELECTION RESULTS:
Belarus just had presidential elections, which were probably the quietest elections the world has seen for the longest time, bypassed for attention by world MSM, as if they didn’t exist. Surprisingly – or not – no one in the West seemed to have noticed how easily and with what stellar result Lukashenko was re-elected. It wasn’t the case in the past.
Belorussian opposition, so trumpeted by the West in the past as being suppressed, this time was practically non-existent. And not because someone was suppressing them – just the opposite. They were allowed to congregate freely. Yet, hardly anyone came and hardly anyone voted for them.
What happened? Wasn’t Lukashenko for years labeled in the West as the last dictator of Europe?
Why such sudden silence?
Lukashenko, that sly fox. He just won his re-election for another five years without a hitch. Moreover, the pro-Western opposition in the country is the weakest it has been for the past 25+ years. Why, you ask?
Very simple. The sly fox Lukashenko has skillfully capitalized on the differences between EU, Ukraine, US and Russia to prop up his regime and his country. First of, I don’t blame him; this is what any smart leader would do. Second, do you hear Russia complaining?
Well, to be precise, Russia doesn’t complain, apart from the ‘little misunderstanding’ last year when Belarus suddenly became the Smuggling Central of the banned European foods and sanctioned products to Russia. They would slap Belorussian labels on these items and re-export them as if they were produced in Belarus. More about that below.
This is free market for you – that’s how it works: they saw an opening and they went for it.
Usually in the past, term-after-term re-election of Lukashenko, who is holding on to power for dear life, had been accompanied with Western-sponsored opposition riots and anti-Belarus sanctions. A few years ago the ‘protesters’ tried to start a Ukraine-like maidan in Minsk; they broke the glass doors and tried to storm the parliament building. Scores were arrested, including heads of the openly financed by the West Belarus opposition and some violent thugs from Ukraine and Baltics. After that a vicious anti-Lukashenko campaign started in Western MSM. This time – silence.
Here are the main reasons for such stellar and smooth re-election.
This is the time for Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and others to lay low and pretend. Everyone does it the way they can. Last year, Russia advised all these former republics that Ukraine-like scenario was coming and color revolution attempts would occur. Armenia went through an attempted maidan based on electricity rate hikes, and it was successfully stopped.
Maidan attempts continue in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, where a virtual war rages on the border (More in ESR 5: Syria Game Changer).
Kazakhstan addressed the problem in its own way. As we’ve seen above, they had early presidential elections, which the West didn’t have the time to prepare for. Nuland didn’t have the opportunity to organize a violent maidan there. I am sure one was being prepared for next year, but Nazarbayev preempted it by the unexpected snap elections.
This leaves Belarus, the western-most of all and most exposed by virtue of porous borders with Ukraine and Poland.
I was asked: if Lukashenko is such an ally of Russia, why did he refuse to host a proposed Russian military base?
Lukashenko is now capitalizing on the fact that everywhere US/EU are engaged in a conflict, the situation is deteriorating and they have their hands full. The West is stretched to the core in conflicts involving Syria, Ukraine, China and Russia. Lukashenko understands that compared to all these hotspots Belarus is a pussy cat presently to the West, especially if they sit quietly.
Let’s again underscore this very important point:
IT IS THE WEST THAT ALWAYS STARTS CONFLICTS, OR SUPPORTS THEM, ALL OVER THE GLOBE. Other countries are relegated to the role of either being quiet slaves – like much of the world; or defending themselves – like Syria, Belarus, China; or fighting back and fixing them – like Russia, the Great Balancer of the World has to do regularly.
Before these elections, 200 heavily armed with bats, Molotov cocktails and heavy chains ukro-nazis tried to get in from Ukraine. They were detained on the border and sent back, weapons taken away from them. Various groups tried to stage rallies, which gathered just a few dozen people, most of them Western press, who immediately would zero in on some ‘protester’ throwing a tantrum. The militsia (police) was given order not to come near them, unless they were causing real trouble. By ignoring such public tantrums, police avoided being photographed next to ‘protesters.’ Such photos would undoubtedly be spun later in the West as Lukashenko suppressing the voice of opposition.
The thing is that Belarus opposition is starving.
Meanwhile, compared to what is happening in surrounding countries, Lukashenko to his people looks like a veritable Prince of Peace, a messiah incarnate, so to speak.
In reality, my article below provides the complete picture of how the BELORUSSIAN MIRACLE WAS REALLY MADE – and it’s not just Belarus leader’s wisdom, although his ability to maneuver and survive in turbulent times cannot be underestimated!
Oh, and about the Russian base. First of all, this could have been a targeted info dump by Russia – a message to the EU, if you will. Lukashenko saying no before elections also feels like an orchestrated info dump (do read my comprehensive article on how to tell a hoax from targeted info dump on FuturisTrendcast). In reality, neither Russia, nor Belarus share with the West their real intentions any more. This was shown well by the Kazakhstan snap elections and by Russia’s actions in Crimea and Syria. The element of surprise is the most important element in the current global spread.
I know – we, the peaceful and good people of the world don’t want to hear this. But the truth is this: the West has declared a war against Russia and the Russian world, as well as against China. You don’t openly share your REAL plans in a war.
That’s where Putin’s genius for surprise and brilliant moves comes in.
CONSULTATIONS: Quantum Calibrations — Earth & Personal Shift — Predictions — Feng Shui
This is the latest from Donbass. Rumors have been circulating since August that Lugansk and Donetsk Republics were preparing a referendum to take place simultaneously with the local elections. These local elections will take place in DNR and LNR on October 18, 2015 pursuant to Minsk 2 agreements. Mayors of several key cities and heads of some towns are being elected.
The rumor that a new referendum to join Russia is to take place around this time was denied vehemently on several occasions by the head of Donetsk, Alexandr Zakharchenko.
It also has to be said that Donetsk is presently going through a power struggle at the top level. Speaker of the Donetsk parliament Andrey Purgin was recently replaced with Denis Pushilin. Rumors, spread undoubtedly by the Kiev side, that Purgin was arrested turned out false, but they generated a temporary confusion and turmoil in society, which was obviously the goal of this hoax. Certain questions about how it happened and why remain unanswered, although Andrey Purgin already announced that he and his allies were regrouping. While they aren’t participating in the current elections yet, they are in a soft opposition to the current government, exploring their options.
Purgin came out with some mild critical remarks about the current DNR government, calling it ‘recreation of the Yanukovich’s power structure.’ Zakharchenko has been very reserved about the Purgin situation, basically letting know that it is the issue of the parliament.
Purgin was (is) considered a more radical member of the DNR leadership. He was for the advancement of the DNR/LNR troops, taking back the entire Donbass and moving further, towards Kharkov and Kiev. This put him at odds with those who have been working on implementing Minsk 2 agreements, which basically freeze the conflicts.
Since last year, Zakharchenko and head Minsk 2 negotiator for DNR Denis Pushilin (now also the Donetsk parliament speaker) have been labeled by certain hot heads who wanted to continue fighting, as traitors and sleazebags. It is clear that Zakharchenko, Purgin and Pushilin want the same for their people: better life, peace and prosperity. However, they want to achieve it by absolutely different means.
Andrey Purgin announced that instead of running for office in these elections, he prefers to organize a grand social event on November 4th, which is called the Day of National Unity in Russia (As we see, Donbass has adopted all Russian holidays). He said that he is concentrating on rallying resources and volunteers to organize a grand Russian Orthodox event (Krestniy Hod) for the ‘Unity Day’ on November 4.
The Day of National Unity is one of the new Russian holidays. It reminds of the 16th century Time of Troubles and Polish aggression that resulted in occupation of Moscow, and how the country rallied at grassroots to throw out the aggressors. Purgin also announced that the hotheads I mentioned above shouldn’t expect him to go into a tough opposition to present authorities. He intends to cooperate, not fight. Wise words, in my view.
Incidentally, Andrey Purgin was at the very roots of the Donetsk People’s Republic. He was the one who proposed the term 10 years ago, well before the 2014 Kiev maidan.
Lugansk already went through its own internal power struggle between the head of LNR Plotnitsky and local Cossack commanders. The conflict was handled by Plotnitsky quietly and skillfully, proving his political mettle. Undoubtedly he had help and advice in settling this conflict. The re-shaping of the self-defence volunteer units into a regular army helped a lot.
Certain inner conflicts and misunderstandings are a natural development in such new, untested formations as DNR and LNR. The unpredictability of conflict situations diminishes as the new power structure finds its comfort zone and settles. Of course, due to the lack of political experience of these young republics, these conflicts may be mishandled in the information space. Due to the infowar time in which we live, the temporary confusion may result, but it all calms down in due time.
It has been clear from the very first referendum of May 11, 2014 that all Donbass wanted was to join Russia. When people went to the referendum to vote for independence from Ukraine, they really thought they were voting for joining Russia, following the Crimean example. About 90% or more voted for that. However, due to major geopolitical circumstances, it became impossible. I wrote about those circumstances previously on many occasions. And there is more on that below.
In the question of referendum, Donetsk and Lugansk appear to diverge. However, this may be for show.
A couple of days ago the head of Lugansk Republic Plotnitsky was asked whether a referendum to join Russia is being prepared in Lugansk. He replied that if people wanted to have a referendum and if they decided in the referendum to join Russia, the government and he, as head of LNR would honor the will of the people.
This is a very interesting statement. Basically, Plotnitsky is saying that the ball is in the people’s court. Whatever the people decide, he, as their public servant, will make happen.
Also see my previous related post: Beware of Wikipedia, a Tool in Global Info War!
Here are several most important things to keep in mind:
When the Ukraine crisis first began in January-February 2014 I said that Russia was interested in the entire Ukraine, or at least most of Ukraine, as a friendly state. Lugansk, or the entire Donbass joining Russia while the rest of Ukraine remains a US-controlled ukro-nazi mess, would not serve this purpose.
While DNR and LNR are still formally a part of Ukraine (although of course de-facto they are separate states), they are akin to a giant thorn in Kiev junta’s back. From the inside they are helping to change the entire set up of Ukraine, also helping weaken the US grip on Ukraine.
As you all know, since the beginning I had felt terrible for the people of Donbass, Odessa, Kharkov and other parts of Ukraine, who have to suffer daily from the inhumane actions of the Kiev ukro-nazis. It’s very hard on the simple citizens Donbass.
But the geopolitical reality is such that Donbass has no choice other than to continue acting as this thorn, until the status quo in Ukraine changes. You’ll all recall my predictions: there will be a shift and subsequent turnaround in Ukraine, to begin in 2016 and to be completed around 2018 (as usual, more in PREDICTIONS on top bar and in 2014 articles under UKRAINE category).
I haven’t changed my opinion since the beginning of 2014. Given the geopolitical situation, Russia is not in a position to admit Lugansk by itself, or LNR and DNR together, at this time, unless Kiev suddenly attacks Donetsk and Lugansk on all fronts, causing catastrophic destruction – and this won’t happen. EU will not let Kiev do that, plus, Ukraine army isn’t capable of any serious operation anyway. All they can do are some pinpricks in the form of occasional shelling of peaceful citizens, but even that they are unable to accomplish on any scale any more. Their hands are getting more and more tied, due to Russia’s skillful diplomacy of the past year and a half – incidentally, again exactly as I predicted.
Eventually, Lugansk and Donetsk, probably together with Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Kherson, Nikolaev, Dnepropetrovsk and Odessa, are likely to join Russia as a Novorossia autonomy, or an autonomy by another name. In that case, Pridnestrovie will also join Russia (something the Pridnestrovie citizens had been eagerly awaiting since 1991).
This may happen as Ukraine will start morphing and shrinking into a different entity closer to the end of this decade. Moldova is a big factor in this spread as well. But we are still a couple of years away from such changes.
However, promoting this referendum is a great bargaining chip. Whether LNR really makes it happen or not, by making such announcements Donbass gains more bargaining power vs. Kiev and EU.
DNR/LNR CURRENCY, RUSSIAN LANGUAGE, SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND PASSPORTS:
Donbass getting closer to Russia is a natural process. The possibility of DNR and LNR residents getting Russian passports is being actively discussed. The process has already begun. Below is a piece in Russian discussing this issue.
Because of Kiev’s financial blockade, initially both DNR and LNR had made several currencies – ruble, grivna, dollar and euro – equally admissible for payment. There was also an attempt to create their own independent currency, which has been scrapped. However, within half a year, ruble naturally pushed out other currencies. Presently, 80% of circulating currency in DNR and LNR are rubles.
LNR has just announced the introduction of the new auto license plates. These plates closely resemble Russian license plates.
Donbass has changed its holiday schedule to reflect the Russian holidays, children now study based on Russian school books and Russian language has made a full comeback to DNR/LNR schools. As we know, for 23 years before 2014, Russian language had been squeezed our of Ukrainian schools; twisted and falsified history was taught to children since early age. It still remains the case, and the anti-Russian propaganda is getting worse, in the rest of Ukraine.
Preview of the upcoming Vladimir Putin’s speech at the UNGA, and Putin’s new checkmate:
It promises to be a big event. I will try to post the actual speech on FT. As I said in the previous article about Erdogan and Assad, the US is cracking on Syria, changing its stance on Assad and fighting ISIL. This is due to the widespread failure of the US policy in the Middle East, now recognized by the US Congress; it is also due to unprecedented pressure US is experiencing from its allies, from Germany, UK, France and EU in general to Saudis and Israel.
The shift is so drastic that despite being on not-speaking terms, last Friday US Secretary of Defence had called Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu to offer an olive branch and attempt to get Russian cooperation on Syria.
It is expected that during Putin’s visit to New York US will try to negotiate for the Russian cooperation in the anti-ISIL coalition. However knowing Putin, I anticipate that he will use this opportunity to package Syria negotiations together with Ukraine and DNR/LNR. I expect both issues to be addressed simultaneously, regardless of how much US tries to avoid doing so. In these negotiations, Russia is holding all the good cards, but the US won’t give up easily. I’ll post my analysis after we hear more next week. Stay tuned!
FT NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
The New Khazarian Khaganate Earth Shift Report is coming out soon. I plan to release it next week.
I also plan a few surprise Earth Shift Reports. One of them will be about the new geopolitical faultline ripening in the Black Sea area. You’ve heard me mention Odessa in several of my previous articles. This is the city I am intimately familiar with. As a matter of fact, the entire Black Sea/Bessarabia/pre-Balkans area is where I grew up. I will explain the convoluted, sinister and very dangerous games being played in Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, Romania and Turkey, Odessa being the epicenter of the entire scheme.
In the beginning of August, 2015, I wrote this article: The Energy is Shifting! Together, We Have Averted the Worst Outcome! The worst outcome – a new world war – was averted because US was unable to create anti-Russia out of Ukraine the way they planned. However, the new Black Sea games may again put us on collision course with the global war.
As usual, I will provide my assessment and predictions. Stay tuned for the surprise Earth Shift Reports!

Ask Lada 4. Color Revolutions: Who and why takes advantage of border disputes and historic resentments?
All posts in this series will appear under CATEGORY: Ask Lada
In response to my latest article Greferendum Domino Effect? Revolution Coming? The Future of Europe and Eurasia?
Ask Lada 4
This comment brings up many important issues and questions. I tried to respond as fully as possible, leaving some of the things implied. You can glean deeper into the issues by revisiting ESR 3: OLIGARCH WARS.
Some of these issues, such as mixing different nationalities in one large umbrella culture, are a norm for large unions. Look at the EU, or USA, for that matter. We were mixed in one country, therefore, we will resent that country forever, does sound awfully immature and silly, don’t you think? Humans are a very social species, they are supposed to interact with each other closely – and yes, mix.
That said, the USSR was absolutely meticulous in providing the platform for unheard-of self-expression to small cultures, which would have been suppressed, and probably disappear entirely, as part of any other country. USSR went as far as creating alphabets and writing systems where they didn’t exist, subsidising art and literature in national languages and having mandatory national language study in republics, whether students wanted it or not. For example, USSR created alphabet and writing systems for many small tribes of Siberia… and for Mongolia.
Yes, there was no writing system in Mongolia before 1920s. The land of the great conqueror Genghis Khan, who created a huge empire, subduing Russia, China and Persia – and no writing system? No monuments of any conquests built, just scattered illiterate nomadic tribes? No books commemorating and glorifying such conquests? No legends? Hard to believe, right? This is why there is a serious doubt such empire ever existed and the Mongol-Tatar yoke ever happened in Russia. History, as I said many times previously, was re-written.
As much as I am an internationalist, even I feel the USSR might have gone a little too far… Celebrating diversity and multi-culti was the USSR’s ‘cult’ of sorts. You thought US or EU invented political correctness? Absolutely not! It was the USSR all the way – the West just stole the idea. As a linguist and international relations analyst (a couple of many hats I wear) I can attest to this first hand.
When USSR fell apart, all this support of local cultures backfired on Russia, due to the violent and disgruntled super-nationalistic minorities within such cultures, and due to the well-known international forces that had one goal in mind: destruction of the Russian World to free up space for the global takeover.
That said, we do have a global resurgence of nationalism, religious extremism, militarism and fascism. This is the sign of this PERIOD 8, as I call it. Therefore, there is nothing extraordinary in the fact that tensions flare up in the former Soviet republics. It’s part of the period we live in.
Meanwhile, it has to be understood that these tensions will always emerge where the weakest links reside. By seeing where tensions flare up, we know where the weakest links are. They are historically known, these weak links. Caucasus, Balkans, Middle East – no surprises. Ukraine and Moldova should have been expected too.
Paul, I don’t think I ever said it was some bad people who gave out cookies on maidan that caused the Ukraine coup. The ‘bad, cookie-wielding people from across the big pond’ simply used the situation skillfully to their advantage. Said another way: there is an old CIA/MI6 playbook: How to create color revolutions. It is the opinion of some very good analysts that this playbook hasn’t changed (it was only perfected) since the beginning of the 20th century. Why change what works wonders?
That’s how all these color revolutions we have observed, were created. Be it France to unseat De Gaulle, or Hungary in 1956, or Georgia, or Egypt, or Serbia, or Ukraine… It’s the same exact playbook. That’s why it was so easy to predict from the start that there would be cookies on Kiev maidan (or lavash, as in Armenia) and mysterious snipers, and innocent victims promoted all over Western MSM.
What this playbook targets is this: it capitalizes on the deep-seated resentments and anger of the volatile and immature part of the population. Extreme nationalism is part of the resentment and dissatisfaction due to the collapsing standard of living. This is why there was no nationalism in the USSR – the majority lived reasonably free (yes, free – in a sense of personal freedom to be yourself and live according to your tradition), was reasonably satisfied and well-occupied. There will be more about that in my upcoming video: Brezhnev’s Passport: Who Really Ruled the USSR.
The movements to change things and the local power grabs began only after Gorbachev destroyed the structure that worked. Gorby’s intention may have been to reform and rebuild on the new level, however, in his naiveté he had no idea who and what he was dealing with internationally. You can’t try to negotiate in good faith, you can’t try to build cooperative relations with those countries that have one exclusive goal: to destroy your country. This is why most Russians consider Gorbachev a traitor and criminal. However, I think this is too simplified of a view. He genuinely thought he was building a new, cooperative world with the West – the world without confrontation. But along the way, he and his wife fell for the trappings of Western materialism, aka, very subtle bribes.
The urge to build a world without confrontation is one of the quantum predetermined, genetically embedded characteristics of the Russian people. It stems from the fact that Russia serves as The Great Planetary Balancer (see PREDICTIONS). This is why Gorby behaved that way, this is why Stalin didn’t believe Hitler would attack the USSR, this is why Putin is doing everything to prevent the big war.
Nationalistic element is always present in the background of any society. But color revolutions are only possible when there is a lot of dissatisfaction with individual’s life due to high unemployment, lack of certain freedoms, enclosed society with lack of prospects and poverty. Dissatisfaction with one’s lot in life and lowly anger and jealousy towards someone who is doing better is then channeled in a specific way.
The more ignorant and brainwashed the population – the easier it is to do so.
Students, and generally young people, are always those who serve as main cannon fodder for carrying out color revolutions.
There is a number of reasons for that: young people often feel their parents didn’t do a good job and want change at any cost, however poorly thought out; students congregate in colleges and can be brainwashed easier together, after which they can be manipulated in a certain way; certain arrogance, lack of wisdom and ignorance of youth that makes them think they know everything; preponderance of fire (physically aggressive) energy that doesn’t find satisfactory outlet in productive activities – and gets directed towards destruction; higher unemployment and much extra time among youths; low wages and need for money, making it especially easy to buy young people.
‘The big Armenian area is next to Georgia’. Nope, the Armenian-populated area called Nagorny Karabakh is between Armenia and Azerbaijan. There is an ongoing conflict between the two, both considering Nagorny Karabakh their own for different reasons. Meanwhile, Karabakh is in the position of Donbass and Pridnestrovie. The conflict continues flaring up periodically, kept in check by the UN-mandated Russian peacekeepers stationed there. Nagorny Karabakh leans towards Armenia.
The real resolution of this issue will only be possible when both Armenia and Azerbaijan become parts of the new Eurasian Union. This is why various forces in Azerbaijan and out will do everything to prevent this from happening.
My prediction: it will eventually happen anyway.
South Ossetia and Abkhazia were former autonomies within the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic, attached to Georgia by Stalin. They seceded de-facto as soon as the USSR fell apart. You have probably read my extensive article about the 2008 Georgia/S. Ossetia war, where I talk about all that.
Presently, both S. Ossetia and Abkhazia are slowly integrating into the Russian Federation, first unofficially. Populations of both unrecognized republics wanted to do it right away, feeling rightly that only Russia can provide them with protection, but are forced to live in a limbo for a while, due to resistance from Georgia and the West.
It’s not the first time small cultures want Russia to protect them. Armenia was once in this situation; Georgia once begged for Russian protection against Persia and Osmanic Empire, and acceptance into the Russian Empire – and look how diligently now they try to force their neighbors in S. Ossetia and Abkhazia into oppression; Ukraine once begged to be accepted into the Russian Empire, same with Finland, as discussed in previous article. How interesting that when the shoe is on another foot, those who were oppressed and begged for help in the past, now happily become the oppressors and bullies!
A very similar to S. Ossetia/Abkhazia situation exists with Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia (Moldova), but it’s complicated by the fact that the latter have no borders with Russia. Of course, the worst of conflict exists between Donbass and Ukraine.
Prediction: All these territories and former republics will need to learn to balance their own nationalistic interests with living and functioning cooperatively within a large union. As a matter of fact, we are in the period when everyone on the planet is learning to balance personal needs with those of the global society. Humans are now learning to balance their national needs and preferences with the needs and demands of the entire continent, union, or federation to which they belong.
A balance of rights and obligations is key. In all this Russia is playing the crucial role as the The Great Planetary Balancer.
Going deeper: balancing personal with the needs of all.
Does Russia owe or is Russia owed?
Paul, my personal view on all these ‘betrayal resentments’ is probably known to you. I will reiterate.
We all have personal history of some sort. You probably heard me say that I had relatives on both sides of the Russian Revolution and Civil War – Reds and Whites – some of whom lost fortunes fighting against the Bolsheviks, and others did well in the USSR. I write about such set up in GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure), partly based on my family history.
In 1991, I would be one of those who got stranded in Ukraine, just like my sister and her family, if I didn’t know to emigrate before it happened. My sister had a hard time in Nikolaev, a typical Russian city tragically stuck in Ukraine’s backyard. Nikolaev, same as Odessa, Donbass and Crimea, was and continues being neglected and humiliated by Ukraine authorities and ‘real Ukrainians,’ aka, ukro-nazis.
There is so much more to my personal story, such as: how at least one member of my extended family was touched by Stalin’s repressions and how many members of my family were lost to the Great War.
Point is: we can make personal dramas out of everything and anything in life, brewing in our own misery and resentments, thinking someone OWES us the world, while we owe nothing back, and forgetting how much that country – Russia/USSR – gave us. One of the best educations; amazing culture and art, including books, movies, theater, sport, dance, songs; tons of freedom to develop and grow; completely safe, crime-free, natural environment; peaceful and nice, non-stressful atmosphere, where it was easy to breathe.
The rest is up to us: we have the inner power to make a life for ourselves we desire. And yes, sometimes it’s hard.
My sister and her family moved to Moscow the first chance they got in the ’90s. At first, they were considered illegal aliens, having only Ukrainian passports, while ethnically being Russian. Was it unfair and humiliating? You bet. But they had no resentments – they just kept their heads down and worked out all the bureaucracy issues, obtaining work permits, passports, establishing families in Moscow. My nieces can’t think of a better place to be. Same goes for many other people I knew in the USA, who first emigrated, but later returned to Russia, and who now live happily in Moscow or elsewhere in Russia. The list includes some very close relatives and friends.
To that I could add that those people I know from various countries who bought some nice vacation properties in Odessa, are now having a problem getting into Ukraine to visit their property, as transportation between Russia and Ukraine is shut. Moreover, real estate in Odessa fell precipitously after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup and the May 2 burning on Kulikovo Polie. They can’t sell their properties either.
I chose to live in the West at the time because of my career and family situation. As far as I am concerned, Russia has been doing soooo much for the world, without getting nearly enough in return. I personally feel I owe Russia everything, while Russia owes me nothing. This is why I write and speak up about the truth concerning Russia, asking for absolutely nothing in return from Russia. Someone has to explain all this to the people in the West.
I know you read my Earth Shift Report: OLIGARCH WARS, where I built an extensive case around psychological resentments and abandonment issues on the part of Ukrainians and other former republics after the collapse of the USSR. While this resentment exists, it’s incredibly childish and un-evolved. Humans are a very funny species. We can create resentments out of thin air and brew in such self-righteous resentments and anger for generations. Humans love blaming someone else for their problems, don’t they? It’s so much easier than taking responsibility for own actions.
This myopic tunnel vision, where some un-evolved souls see only their small point of view and are unable to expand their horizons, is one of the tragedies of mankind in general. This is how wars start and countries fall.
It’s easy enough to know if there is a legitimate concern and truth behind any such resentments and color revolutions, or is this an induced from abroad whim of a small, aggressive minority. Use my Quantum Calibrations of Consciousness System, as described in my videos. The scale is based in part on Dr. David Hawkins ‘Power vs Force’ Scale of Consciousness, but going much further. See videos here:
(An illustration of how calibrations work, with telling examples, to be posted soon as a new article! Stay tuned!)
The wise and evolved humans get over anything life throws at them, make peace with the past, and make a good life for themselves, while also keeping the warm feelings towards their Greater Motherland. This is what a majority both inside and outside of Russia/former USSR is doing. Talking about how one felt betrayed for 23 years, blah, blah, is just sensationalistic and encourages lowly emotions and usurious behavior. While it’s very human, it’s also very American (I mean sensationalism and creating noise in the MSM about someone’s private complaints, as if they were gospel). For all these reasons I feel no sympathy for anyone who whines how they were betrayed by Russia. Time to get over it.
Russia owes them nothing, but they owe Russia a lot. One of the things they owe is to stop being the sheeple and reclaim their power, build a good life for themselves and put an effort to create the country(ies) they want their children to grow up in. Then, everything will start magically falling into place.
Here is an example of how this can be done. Just last week we saw how the attempted ‘electric maidan’ color revolution in Armenia failed because people understood what mess Ukrainians made out of their maidan, and refused to be someone’s guinea pigs.
As John Kennedy, US president many Americans tend to respect, said: “Think not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
Another American whom I personally respect, called Mohammad Ali, once said that we have to pay the rent for living on our planet. We take a lot from our Mother Earth, and we owe her back. Same with Mother Russia.
To answer your question: no, it was impossible to straighten out all conflicts and rectify borders on the post-Soviet space. It’s naive to think that centuries-old inter-tribal historic conflicts with unclear and fluid borders for generations, could just be assigned in a straight line on moment’s notice. This is how UK and other colonial powers did it in Africa and America. India and Pakistan were also divided this way, clashes between them ongoing till recently, as a parting gift from the disintegrating British Empire. Stalin, Lenin and Khrushchev did some of that experimentation too, resulting in big problems later. The Middle East has seen some crazy redrawing of borders, resulting now in terrible inter-cultural conflicts.
In Yeltsin’s defence, not only he had the volatile situation in Russia to deal with, but he also naively thought that the USSR would be re-build on different principles soon. Therefore, he didn’t worry about borders too much. It didn’t occur to him that local feudal/nationalistic/oligarchic interests would take over almost immediately, aided by foreign powers who craved the Russian World’s resources and destruction. Again, in his defence: he was born and lived his whole life in the USSR, where all these things were alien.
While USSR was strong and stable, any inter-tribal conflicts were kept very successfully in check by virtue of mutual trade and unifying Russian culture. If there were national security considerations, borders could be redrawn (right or wrong). This especially concerns Caucasus, Moldova and Ukraine. Once the USSR was gone, these old conflicts flared up again.
Border settlement and rectification would be absurd and couldn’t happen in principle on moment’s notice when the country was already disintegrating. It often takes centuries to settle border disputes, and they still keep brewing unless a lasting compromise can be found, such as a large umbrella union. Unions serve as containment factors for border disputes.
France and Germany settled some of their border disputes only after EU was formed. That’s actually why some glorify EU as a means of bringing lasting peace to the European continent for the first time in millennia. There is some truth to that; EU did that – but only before it succumbed to the dark agenda of the NWO and Transatlantists. Let’s recall that both world wars have started in Europe and it’s understandable that EU citizens want to avoid a repeat of the same at any cost.
Also look at Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, India and Pakistan and their long-brewing border disputes.
Prediction: the ongoing border disputes between India, China, Pakistan, Vietnam, etc., will be put to rest as all these countries join SCO, Eurasian Union and the New Silk Road project. The BRICS already helped smooth out the long-brewing border dispute between India and China. Russia in all this, just like in the past, has been acting as that glue that helps keep peace and deflects conflicts. This is part of Russia’s global role as The Great Planetary Balancer.
Prediction: In addition to all the above, and most importantly, most former Soviet republics (including Ukraine and the Baltics) either never were successful independent states, or never were independent states within bloated borders they had as Soviet republics. In OLIGARCH WARS (and my various articles) I described how borders were given to republics based on political expediency at the time. Unfortunately, later, these republics refused to release territories they were assigned for the purposes of the USSR, now considering them their own.
Due to the fact that it was Yeltsin in power at the time, there was no one to address these complex issues. The existing legal system was torn out with its roots in the ’90s. The new legal structure, both in Russia and Eurasia is only now being re-built. There is still a lot to do. The mess created by the split wouldn’t have been possible to clean up quickly by the wisest person alive at the time.
It’s only possible now and it is being done – by Putin and his team. It will be a very slow and careful process so not to create a new mess. It has to be done right, based on principles of equity and taking into account interests of many newly emerged little countries, but without giving away any of the Russian interests and power.
The issue of borders among former Soviet republics will be settled by mid-2020. It will only be possible, yet again, as part of Eurasian Union and other Eurasian organizations. The alternative is perma-conflict. There is no other way.
By mid-2020, the world will look very different, some countries will be called differently, and borders will be different, too.
