**Attempts to re-write history and reverse Russian victory in WWII are intensifying. These re-writing attempts are coming from all kinds of countries, including Ukraine, Poland, Romania, the Baltics, US, Germany, etc. And even some of the young people in Russia are beginning to forget the truth. Humans are funny and their memory is short. This amnesia always results in a self-fulfilling prophecy otherwise known as ‘karma.’ This is why memory is so important. After all, ‘those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it.’
So we don’t forget, and can remind others — here’s a short, but important lesson from me:
75th Anniversary of the Victory in Stalingrad
Why was Stalingrad so important, why is it studied in all military colleges around the world and why is it arguably the most famous battle ever fought?
The city formerly known as Stalingrad is now called Volgograd (which means: the City on Volga River). A major commemorative parade took place today, Feb 2, 2018, in Volgograd (Stalingrad).
On June 22, 1941, at 4am, when people slept, Hitler’s Germany and their allies attacked the USSR simultaneously on all fronts. The Great Patriotic War began. Hitler’s troops moved relentlessly and to quickly through the territories of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.
They were stopped only near Moscow and Leningrad, but at a huge cost. The German advancement meanwhile continued elsewhere, as town after town and city after city fell, despite the troops’ and population’s heroic defense. In 1942 Hitler was advancing on most fronts and Germans were reporting that they could already see Volga ahead of them. If they crossed the major water artery of Russia, the Volga River, this would mean a nearly unencumbered access to the following major prize: The industrial Russian hub of the Urals. And from the Urals, they could advance to Siberia, with its oil and natural resource riches, and that would be the end of Russia and the USSR.
That’s why Stalingrad was the last and final stand. The phrase that made it into all history books was: “There is no land for us beyond Volga.” This is what officers told their troops. There is no land for us beyond this point. Germans cannot be allowed to cross Volga at any cost. It was a fight of the magnitude never before known by the world. It was the most devastating war humanity ever experienced, and the cost to both Russian/Soviet civilians and troops was obsene and staggering. The amount of self-sacrifice and heroism was out-of-this-world. There was no choice: if Germans crossed Volga, it would be the end. They had to be stopped.
The outcome of that battle and entire WWII, the Russian/Soviet victory in it saved the entire world — and that means you, You and YOU, by the way. All at the expense of MILLIONS of RUSSIAN and SOVIET LIVES!
While General Friedrich Paulus, the commander of the 6th German Army was preparing to toast the victory of Stalingrad, Russian generals were preparing their counter-attack plan. Rumor has it that Hitler was so confident in Paulus’ success that he promoted him to field marshal just before the day Paulus surrendered together with his army to the Russian Army.
More hilarious details from Wikipedia:
Paulus surrendered in Stalingrad on 31 January 1943, the same day on which he was informed of his promotion to field marshal by Adolf Hitler. Hitler expected Paulus to commit suicide, repeating to his staff that there was no precedent of a German field marshal ever being captured alive. While in Soviet captivity during the war, Paulus became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime and joined the Soviet-sponsored National Committee for a Free Germany. He moved to East Germany in 1953.
Might this be a lesson for new aggressors?
The unexpected by both Germany/Axis allies and US/UK Allies Soviet victory in the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-43 not only shocked the world, but it completely turned around the fates of WWII and Nazi Germany. The beginning of Hitler’s demise took place in Stalingrad. In the Great Stalingrad Cauldron, Russians surrounded and took prisoner over a hundred thousand of German troops.
But what very few people know is that the actual brilliant Soviet Stalingrad counter-attack plan was initially much grander and it included several broad fronts, down to Caucasus. If the whole plan succeeded, most German troops would have been surrounded and WWII could have ended a year or two earlier. The plan succeeded only partially, and after Stalingrad there was a number of other giant battles on the Soviet territory, plus hundreds and hundreds of smaller ones. In these battles the two titan armies clashed: one in order to conquer and enslave, and another to protect and liberate the Motherland.
The largest tank battle of WWII was the Battle of Kursk, July-August 1943, when Germans gathered all the resources they could in order to regain advantage. They failed miserably.
The Battle of Kursk, also known as the Arch of Kursk (Russian: Kurskaya Duga), had its own legendary ‘aha’ moment, when the well-oiled German war machine suddenly came to a screeching halt as thousands of state-of-the-art, awe-inspiring and menacing German tanks stopped, as if turned off by God’s invisible hand. For 20 minutes they helplessly watched as Russian tanks were quickly catching up to them in the giant battlefield, which would eventually become the Germans’ grave. This mysterious event took place in the stretch of the core central Russian steppes known as ‘the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly.’ The mystical mass sabotage of the German hardware during the Kursk Battle helped ensure another crucial victory for the USSR and another devastating defeat for Nazi Germany, from which it never recovered.
But the advancement of the German army was first stopped in Stalingrad. And with every next battle, inch by inch Russian / Soviet people liberated their land from the brown plague of the German fascism and their allies.
Stalingrad was rebuilt from the complete ruins after the war ended, and the Battle of Stalingrad memorial complex was built on Mamayev Kurgan, on the banks of Volga. It consists of a number of monuments and mass graves of those who perished defending Russia.
The main monument is the towering statue, MOTHER RUSSIA, or The Motherland Calls (Russian: Родина-мать зовёт!, tr. Rodina-mat’ zavyot!). She is the reminder of the truth that can never be forgotten. (See the image on top.)

Lada Ray’s important message for her readers and followers!
In the interview above, among many other things we are discussing attacks against alternative media and truth tellers, including yours truly. And here is a very telling example. This is one of the things YouTube/Google do to diminish traffic and shut down sites like mine!
Above, I have on purpose included my links for FuturisTrendcast and LadaRay.com published by The Time Monk on YouTube under my interview of June 16, 2017. Note that it was a while back, therefore, this didn’t just start, the attacks and attempts to stifle the voice of truth have been on for a while. When you click on these links to my perfectly harmless blog and site, here is the message you see:
Be careful! This site may be harmful.
BACK TO SAFETY is big and bold, while GO TO SITE is tiny and easy to miss. Try clicking and you’ll see the same!
Certainly, you all very well know that my sites are fully safe and well-protected from any malware. I don’t promote anything untoward, on the contrary, I promote peace, mutual understanding, cooperation and love among people on our planet. My only fault is that I tell the truth and make revelations the Dark State hates. This is why people like me get prosecuted and their voices get stifled.
According to some, this is what Ukraine’s map will look like in a few years. This is one idea… I personally think the map will look a bit different, but it certainly won’t be anything like it is today. Just give it time, and it may be a bit longer than a few years due to the fast-changing timelines, as a consequence of the Earth Shift. Will even the country’s name and the infamous ‘zhovto-blakitniy’ (yellow and blue) flag survive this ukro-nazi Kiev regime? To me, that is a BIG question!
LADA RAY PREDICTION:
Ukraine will continue rocking and burning up in fever, until the many injustices, clashes of inner economic and outer geopolitical interests, layers of lies and mismatches with reality are resolved.
I always said, and will continue saying, that Ukraine in its today’s form and substance, including its very name, is an artificial still-born creation, which could only survive and prosper under the tutelage and protection of Russia. Once it became separate, making it a juicy prey of the greedy local and international oligarchy; once alien ideology has been introduced, the whole thing began disintegrating.
It will continue on its road to self-destruction until, one way or another, all or most tensions and problems are resolved. Only this kind of solution will clear up the road to renewal and progress for Malorossia and Novorossia.
Today we are talking about one long-brewing issue, which was left dormant on the back burner for as long as Kiev and ukro-nazis didn’t touch it. As soon as this issue is disturbed, the overboiling of the old problems is bound to occur. The overboiling would be better for Ukraine’s many people, who are sick of this regime. However, it is very bad for Kiev, Poroshenko and ukro-nazis, who call themselves ‘Ukraine patriots’.
These self-styled ‘Ukraine patriots’ aren’t very bright, and through their actions, such as the one described below, they will continue pushing Ukraine into abyss, until complete disintegration, or until Russia is ready to pick up the pieces.
Hungary, Slovakia and Romania support separatism in Ukraine and demand self-determination for ethnic minorities
I had previously written about Poland, Hungary and Romania licking their lips and trying to quietly bite off pieces of Ukraine, hiding behind the Western and Ukrainian hysteria targeting Russia. This time Kiev, by accusing Russia of supposed ‘aggression’ and trying to pass more and more anti-Russian laws has stepped on the new rake and gotten itself into a very tight spot. The EU, as well as Germany/Merkel are equally in a tight spot, as lead defenders of Poroshenko and the Kiev junta.
Ukraine Rada recently passed a new ‘education law,’ according to which school education in the languages of minorities — and those are many in Ukraine — is banned, and education only in Ukrainian is permitted. As of 2017, education in minorities’ native languages is still permitted in primary school, however, all students past grade 5 are mandated to study only in Ukrainian. As of 2020 100% of pupils from first to last grade must study only in Ukrainian.
This news immediately caused an uproar in western Ukraine, where the following large minorities, numbering in hundreds of thousands reside: Hungarians, Romanians and Slovaks. In Odessa Oblast there also are numerous Bulgarian villages. Till now, they all had a choice of sending their kids to ethnic schools, however, gradually the number of subjects taught in minority languages has been declining over the years. There are also fewer and fewer such schools available.
Hungary PM Viktor Orban, a well-known nationalist, immediately reacted to the ukro-fascist ‘education law’ by denouncing it and demanding that EU demand that Ukraine rescind this new law as a condition to keep its ‘EU association agreement.’
To remind everyone, the infamous Ukraine’s EU association agreement was the pretext for the Kiev Maidan and coup 2014, leading to the ousting of president Yanukovich, war in Donbass and the loss of Crimea by Ukraine. Poroshenko proclaimed the signing of the EU association agreement and the accompanying 90-day visa free travel to the EU for Ukraine citizens as the crowning achievement of the Maidan and his administration.
Viktor Orban, who never minces words, announced that if EU fails to react to Hungary’s demands to protect the Hungarian population of western Ukraine, Hungary will block all EU’s initiatives in support of Kiev, such as Euro loans, further liberalization of trade quotas and any political or economic support of Poroshenko and Kiev regime.
Slovakia and Romania joined in the chorus of Kiev condemnation and demanded the same. These countries pledged to vote down any EU initiatives that would give breaks or afford loans to Kiev.
Furthermore, Hungary, supported by Slovakia and Romania, demands broad autonomy for the Hungarian and Rusyn populated Zakarpatska Rus, also called Podkarpatskaya Rus. (NOTE that ‘s’ in Rus and Rusyn is pronounced as ‘s’ in the word state, not as ‘z’) As seen on the map on top of this post, it is the western-most tip of today’s Ukraine, also known in the West as Transcarpathia.
There are about 200,000 Hungarians residing there, most of whom also posses Hungarian passports. This is because this area was a part of Austria-Hungary for centuries prior. However the core majority of the population in Podkarpatskaya Rus are Rusyns (aka, Rusins, Ruthenians). As you see by the name, it’s another way to say ‘Russians.’ I’ll tell you more: in 19th — beginning of 20th centuries the population of most of today’s Ukraine called themselves ‘Rusyns.’ The word ‘Ukrainian’ in the 19th century signified basically traitors to the Rusins, their language (an older version of western Russian) and Russian Orthodox faith. Later, the true history was successfully forgotten, aided and abetted by propaganda from Poland and Austria-Hungary. I explained in detail how it all happened in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE.
Rusyns have been very vocal about the fact that they wanted autonomy and recognition as a separate ethnicity, with their own language. They are recognized as a separate from ‘Ukrainians’ ethnicity by the neighboring countries, such as Slovakia and Hungary, as well as Russia and the UN. But Kiev refuses to recognize them as a separate minority, with their own rights, and insists they all are ‘Ukrainians.’ The leaders of the Rusyn movement have been either threatened or driven out of Ukraine altogether. As we see, Rusyns, as the core population of Transcarpathia, are ripe and ready for secession — they only need a push — and a support from abroad. In this case, the necessary support may come from Hungary and Slovakia.
This map allows you to see approximately where Zakarpatska Rus (Podkarpatskaya Rus) is located — marked in bright aquamarine color. I say approximately because it does have some discrepancies. It’s surrounded by Hungary in red (Wegry), Romania, Slovakia (light blue) and Poland. The rest of Ukraine is not marked here, but it is to the east in gray.
However, Germany and EU are vehemently opposing the autonomy and self-determination of these regions. Ukraine has to be kept intact despite the unwillingness and inability of different parts to stay together. Ukraine has to be as big and strong as possible, according to EU, Merkel and US. Why? Because as big and as menacing as possible a thorn is needed against Russia. But it is simultaneously a thorn against Eastern/Central European countries, such as Hungary, Austria, Czechia and Slovakia, some of which are starting to see the light and want better relations with Russia. Maintaining a permanent Iron Curtain between Russia and these countries, as well as entire Europe, is the No.1 goal of the neo-liberal globalist and West-centric elites.
Conclusion: there will be lots of fights and arms twisting in the EU in the next couple of years. Get your semechki and popcorn ready.
Many Rusyns have relatives on the other side of the border and many own Hungarian passports, in addition to Ukrainian passports. However, at large they prefer to be a part of Russia. The problem is that they are surrounded by the rest of western Ukraine, which tends to be ukro-nazi inclined and there is no direct border with Russia. In such situation, they hope to escape the clutches of Kiev with Hungary’s help.
Slovakian population has also resided in those parts since it was a part of the Austria-Hungary. On the top map, you will also find small pieces of south-western Ukraine marked as populated by Romanians.
But the biggest chunk of today’s Ukrainian territory coveted by Romania is the southern part of the prized Odessa Oblast, aka, Bessarabia (on the top map it is marked under the Russian flag). Romania also claims that all of Moldavia (presently separate from Russia Republic of Moldova) and the breakaway Pridnestrovie should both be a part of the ‘Great Romania.’ All that can happen in their wet dreams only, of course. I can tell you with absolute confidence that Romania will never get its hands on either Odessa Oblast, Moldavia or Pridnestrovie. Much more on these volatile issues and region’s fascinating history is discussed in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit.
What is marked on the top map as the territory claimed by Poland is the largest part of Western Ukraine. Poland has been for years publicly supporting Russophobia and discrimination of Russian language and culture in Ukraine, while at the same time secretly plotting to tear Western Ukraine with center in Lvov from Ukraine.
Overall, either quietly or loudly, Poland, Hungary, and Romania have been encouraging and supporting separatism in Western Ukraine, while voting for sanctions against Russia, for supposedly supporting ‘separatism’ in south-eastern Ukraine and Donbass. The double-faced hubris of this position is obvious: in reality they are licking their lips and waiting for the right moment when Kiev weakens enough, secretly hoping to chop off the pieces of Ukraine they can get their hands on.
It has to be mentioned that Hungary, along with Austria, Slovenia, Greece and Finland, has been one of the most vocal opponents of the anti-Russian sanctions, repeatedly demanding their repeal. Hungary also made a serious effort to keep its good relationship with Russia going, despite sanctions and EU threats. Same goes for the the other countries mentioned in this regard.
Poland, on the other hand, has been the biggest proponent and initiator of the existing and new anti-Russian sanctions. Many anti-Russian moves in the EU have been pushed through based on the insistence of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Romania hasn’t been that far behind.
Hungary and others demand broad autonomy and self-determination for their respective minorities in order to preserve the culture and the right of people to speak their native language. Hungary’s Orban even uttered something that till now was considered blasphemy and a taboo in Hungary and the rest of Eastern Europe. Ready for this?.. He said that Hungarian minority was batter off in the USSR than in today’s Ukraine!! Can you imagine this coming out of the mouth of an EU head of state?!
What Orban said is the real, honest to goodness truth of course, as I can personally confirm. But it is something no EU politician could admit to himself — forget admitting it publicly!
The demands of autonomy and self-determination for Hungarians in Ukraine caused a major uproar in Kiev. Foreign minister Klimkin lashed out by accusing Hungary of supporting separatism in Ukraine. Ukraine in general is in shock from the EU/Hungary/Romania/Slovakia’s reaction to the new law. They have thought that because Kiev serves as a major thorn in Russia’s back, EU will always look the other way, no matter what Kiev junta does. After all, EU conveniently didn’t notice any of the atrocities by Kiev and ukro-nazis against the peaceful population of Donetsk and Lugansk. That’s because Donbass is populated by Russians and Ukrainians. But an encroachment on the rights of those ethnicities they consider their own is a different story altogether.
In their twisted and dim minds the Kiev Rada honestly thought the EU would say ‘Thank You’ and reward them for the new anti-Russian move — because make no mistake, this new ‘education law’ is aimed against Russia.
And now we need to say a few words about the elephant in the room, aka, RUSSIAN LANGUAGE. The thing is, when the Rada was passing this already infamous ‘education law,’ what they were really targeting was Russian language and culture. It is the highly preferred culture and language for the majority of Ukraine’s population, despite major persecution. Therefore, its complete eradication from people’s genetic and ancestral memory is the ultimate goal.
It once happened the same way to Poland and to Germany (Prussia and beyond). But that was centuries ago, and this is happening in front of our very eyes. Problem is, no matter how hard they tried, they were largely unsuccessful with adults, who refused to stop speaking Russian. It is helpful that we live in the TV and Internet age, where much info can be found bypassing official channels.
I described in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE how in 2007 the Gallup poll inadvertently confirmed that 70%+ of Ukrainians preferred to read and write in Russian. This is when it was decided that slow and insidious means of color revolutions and election fraud, employed to elect the US agent Yushchenko in 2004, didn’t produce the desired result. It was judged that instead a violent coup d’etat was needed, using sold-out elites, criminal element, the jobless, angry and disgruntled youths, silly students and impoverished villagers. The preparation for the 2014 Maidan began.
We can easily point fingers here. Recall US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland bragging during Washington Press Club meeting in the end of 2013 how US spent $5 billion to subvert Ukraine. Top EU and US politicians were on Kiev Maidan every day, calling to overthrow Yanukovich. The names that come to mind first are Nuland, US ambassador to Kiev Pyatt, US senator McCain and Poland’s top politician Kachinski, twin brother of ex-president Kachinski who died along with 96 Poland’s top brass in self-inflicted plane crash near Smolensk, Russia, several years prior. This surviving Kachinski twin is presently called the ‘shadow ruler of Poland.’
Both then Ukraine PM Azarov and president Yanukovich were threatened daily with a coup and bodily harm if they resisted the Maidan and tried to make up with Russia. PM Azarov writes extensively in his recently published memoirs how he was personally threatened more than once by Nuland and US ambassador Pyatt, as well as EU’s then foreign minister Catherine Ashton (a UK native). All top Ukraine politicians, ministers, security services personnel, police and military commanders, bureaucrats and oligarchs were either bought or threatened, if they refused to succumb to pressure. The most ‘disagreeable’ to the West’s agenda for Ukraine were killed or driven out of the country. Ex-PM Azarov was one of them.
At the same time, since late 1980s-early 1990s, the children were targeted through a wholesale assault and mutilation of the educational system of Ukraine. If it didn’t work with adults, they needed to switch target to the next generation and watch how they grow up hating their own heritage. And that, unfortunately, did produce the result they were after. It is a well-known fact that Ukraine school books were created using free Soros grants, by western Ukrainians from Poland, Canada and US. This was done simultaneously with the re-writing of history and re-inventing Ukrainian language to make it seem as non-Russian as possible. Again, all that was done using fat grants provided by Soros, USAID, Endowment for Democracy and other Western NGOs. But the result was still relatively meager and localized.
As of 2017, despite urko-nazi threats, parents still continue to go out of their way to find a Russian school for their kids. I just heard from those who live in Ukraine and they complain that it’s harder and harder to find a Russian school in most areas, even where Russian is traditionally the ONLY language spoken, such as Odessa. In Kiev it’s nearly impossible to find a Russian school. But people still try.
There are bizarre incidents being reported. A Russian-speaking teacher would ask a question in Russian, but the pupil is required to answer in Ukrainian, even though the pupil’s language is also Russian. In some schools teachers and parents secretly agree on a work-around, such as the class is advertised as Ukrainian-language, but all lessons are conducted in Russian, for as long as no outsiders are present. In other cases, when teachers in class teach falsified history, parents at home are forced to re-educate their children by telling them not to believe what is said in school. Can you imagine the trauma and confusion all this causes to a fragile child’s psyche?
I recently read this story by a very popular in Ukraine blogger, who writes under the name Yura Sumi. He was forced out of the country after telling the truth about Donbass and Kiev regime. While he was trying to get naturalized in Russia, his family remained in Ukraine. They came to visit him in a small town near Moscow, where he resided. His teenage daughter didn’t want to go back to Ukraine. Parting, she uttered longingly, ‘Papa, why wasn’t I born here?’
Oftentimes Russian is marked in school curriculum as a ‘foreign’ language, and in many schools it is pushed out altogether, being overtaken by other FOREIGN languages: English and German.
But the resistance to forced ukrainization is huge. In the absence of good Russian language education, parents often take it upon themselves to teach kids Russian through the love of the Russian literature and through watching Russian films and cartoons.
This is why the real assault against Russian language was needed. The new ‘education law’ was aimed to target specifically Russian language and culture. But Hungarian, Slovakian and Romanian were caught in the crossfire. The Kiev junta hasn’t counted on backlash from Hungary and other EU countries. Kiev is afraid to spoil relations with EU, its biggest backer apart from the US. Poroshenko and Rada made an attempt to get around this by calling only on Russian language to be banned from schools, while giving exception to Hungarian, Slovak and Romanian. But that created additional backlash from western Ukraine ultra-nationalists, who want ONLY Ukrainian in every school. At the same time it caused a protest storm from Russia, and even more international accusations of blatant discrimination of the minorities’ rights. The UN was forced to get involved.
The pressure on Poroshenko to rescind this discriminatory law will continue from the EU and UN. Meanwhile Ukrainian ultra-nationalists and ukro-nazis continue pressing Poroshenko to uphold it. So far, Poroshenko, this unusually large, yet slippery snake, has been able to squirm his way out of tight spots, hanging on by his teeth to power. But the spot he is in is getting progressively tighter. He knows he must get re-elected as president just to stay alive. The moment he’s out of office and loses his immunity, he will be hunted for the rest of his life.
The example of ex-Georgian president Saakashvili, a man without citizenship, is right in front of his eyes. Saakashvili was stripped of Georgian citizenship, but he quickly and illegally received Ukraine citizenship. At the same time he was made by Poroshenko the governor of Odessa Oblast, also quite illegally. Late last year (right on time, based on my prediction made in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit), he lost his lucrative Odessa post and was stripped of Ukraine citizenship by Poroshenko, following a public row.
Earlier, US refused to give Saakashvili a green card and/or a visa, which in itself is interesting. The reason: US needed him to have no choice but to stay close to Ukraine and Georgia, where he could cause most damage to Russia. However, my prediction is that with his latest actions, Saakashvili is helping Russia, Novorossia and Malorossia’s future in the long run.
After being kicked out of Ukraine Saakashvili became a person without citizenship and stayed in Poland. A few weeks ago, with the help of US and Poland, Saakashvili boldly and illegally crossed Ukraine border. The video of Saakashvili’s crossing is incredibly bizarre to watch. Kiev dispatched police, armed troops and armored vehicles to the border to prevent Saakashvili crossing. Yet, he was able to do so quite easily, with the help of a mob of local ukro-nazis. The Ukraine armed forces didn’t resist it very much. At this time Saakashvili is roaming Ukraine, threatening to expose and to oust Poroshenko during upcoming presidential elections.
The video below shows how Saakashvili forces his way into Ukraine from Poland, with the help of his ukro-nazi friends. On the Ukraine side he was met by Yulia Timoshenko (remember her?), who nurtures her own ambitions to become Ukraine PM or president, and whose ultimate goal is to unseat Poroshenko. For that, she is ready to make alliances with anyone, including Saakashvili. In the video below Georgian national Saakashvili, turned the most Ukrainian of all Ukrainians, is singing Ukrainian songs with his western Ukraine supporters. Later, they’ll head directly to Lvov, the capital of the ukro-nazi Galichina (western Ukraine), where he again will be greeted by Timoshenko, together with Lvov mayor Sadovoi, who also covets presidential chair.
Ukraine is a farce and a mad house, so what else is new? We had talked about the mad house called Ukraine in previous years, but this tragic comedy just gets better and better (or worse, depending on how you look at it).
This related article should not be missed! Kiev Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar (Saakashvili, Avakov, Yatsenyuk and Idiocracy Plus)
And of course, all about Saakashvili, including my March 2016 prediction that he would lose his Odessa governorship post no later than in 2017 (it actually happened in the end of 2016!) in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit.
How easily Saakashvili crossed into Ukraine reminds me of another famous episode, that of Lenin arriving to Russia in 1917, across several countries, including through Germany, which was at war with Russia at the time. Lenin arrived in time to head the Bolshevik Revolution on November 7, 1917.
We now know why Lenin’s carriage was allowed free passage through WWI-torn Europe and warring Germany: there was a collusion between UK and Germany to let him pass. In Saakashvili’s case, there has been a collusion between US and Poland.
Saakashvili is being kept in his useful capacity as a short leash and a whip for Poroshenko. For both Kiev and Poroshenko it can only get worse, and it can’t get any better. More turmoil to come!
This is a map of Ukraine, posted in the streets of Odessa (Odessa for now is a part of southern Ukraine). Over western and central Ukraine it reads in big letters ‘SOLD.’ Over eastern Ukraine: ‘LOST.’ Over the empty space where Crimea used to be as part of Ukraine: ‘LOST.’ Over southern Ukraine: ‘SOON TO BE LOST.’ If anyone still has any doubts of the language spoken in the south and east of Ukraine — well, in most of Ukraine really — it is Russian, of course. As a matter of fact the text on the flier above is in Russian, not Ukrainian, which is turning more and more into an artificial language.

AND KUDOS FOR BEST QUESTIONS & COMMENTS GO TO…
Since we had chat room and commenting open throughout the entire 4 hours of the webinar, Az and I have decided to select the best comments, worthy of our KUDOS! These are:
- Comment by Mark, who previously received KUDOS more than once for his great questions during THREE WEBINAR SERIES! MARK: I am now setting up a Trust in Switzerland… it is for projects beneficial to The PEOPLE of the planet… Lada IS included!
LADA: Thank you, Mark! Very much honored and appreciate it!
- On a lighter note, ‘a purely 3-D comment from Ann (UK) re. Lada’s haircut,’ which prompted a cute multi-dimensional joke! LADA: Thank you, Ann, we did need to lighten up the atmosphere!
Best question KUDOS, in Lada’s expert 😉 opinion, go to…
- From Natercia (Portugal): Question re. Oct 1, 2017 Catalonia’s Independence Referendum and the reason secession / unionist movements all over the world are on the rise. As I explained in the THREE WEBINAR SERIES, these are connected to the GREAT EARTH SHIFT and Period 8! ‘Lada, I am Portuguese, and here in the Iberian Peninsula we have “Catalunia” (Catalonia). Will Catalunia be independent? (I hope they will) and how it will affect all the Iberian Peninsula and also European Union?’
- From Polli (Hawaii, USA): Please Comment on HAARP and chemtrails, which are EVERYWHERE! I am saddened and depressed by the condition of the skies.
- From Torben (Denmark): Dear Lada, How can we, people with ordinary jobs, children, dog, etc., rise our consciousness? As part of this answer Lada demonstrates how her Personal Calibrations work during consultations: QC, CHI and Soul Dimension calibrated!
- From Az (NYC, USA): What is a Russian Dacha and why do Russians love them so much? Why prophetess Anastasia (The Ringing Cedars Books) foretold Russian Dachas saving the people from collapse
- From Eugene (Singapore): While China seems to be rising, do you see any disruptions to China’s economic growth and political system? Any impact on the world?
QUESTIONS I WISH I RECEIVED, BUT NEVER DID…
This part is something I hoped I wouldn’t have to include, because I did hope people would rise to the challenge (LOL) and ask me these.
I got these two comments:
And the moral of the story?
Let me tell you a well-known in both Odessa and NYC old Jewish joke:
Moshe is praying to god: ‘Dear god, I always followed your tenets, always lived a righteous life. I have been for a long time praying for you to help me win a lottery to improve my financial situation and as a reward for my good behavior. How come you never sent me a win, despite my repeated pleas?’
And god replies: ‘Moshe, try buying a lottery ticket…’
So, the moral of the story: CARPE DIEM, dear friends! Ask and you shall receive! To win you must play!
Both of you were at the LIVE Q&A. Should have asked your questions when you had THE perfect chance! Some of you, who have ordered my consultations, know that I am very generous with my time, and always give you extras. You also all know how much I enjoy answering your questions!
The two questions about Merkel and German elections, and about the flipside of Chinese Eurasia expansion are the kinds of questions I was hoping to receive, and I’d gladly go overtime to answer these! You’d all benefit greatly to know the multi-dimensional perspective and my predictions for both. Now… it may forever remain a mystery, unless you order a PRIVATE CONSULTATION (New consultation Tea & Q&A with Lada Ray is recommended for global and cosmic questions, as well as your own stories you want to share. I also have a lot more leeway to share with you during such private consultation things that I can’t discuss publicly).
Next time, just go for it! However, you should have done it when you had the chance — as there may be no next time in this specific format! It appears, this kind of webinar may end up remaining a one-of-a-kind, unique experiment (one day I’ll reveal, due to what extenuating factors).
Don’t miss it! Order this one-of-a-kind, unique webinar, as there may be no other chance!

The Polish Sejm (Parliament) has just passed a law ordering the destruction of Soviet war memorials throughout Poland. The Soviet Army liberated Poland after years of …
Yes, of course I know about this. This is one of the most sickening things I have observed in a very long time.
There are some details in my earlier BIG article/report discussing Putin – Trump G20 meeting: G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions. That report talks, among other things, about Trump’s trip to Poland in the course of which he was terribly laudatory of Poland rewriting history, and even helped them re-write history a bit in his own speech given to the Polish audience. The unfortunate truth is that in addition to being in a custom-made ‘straitjacket,’ Trump is extremely ignorant when history, and so many other things are concerned; therefore, it’s very easy to saddle him with any speech, or seduce him to make any move that someone with ulterior motives may want him to do.
As I predicted in this report, Trump’s utter ignorance of Polish true motives, multiplied by arrogance and insensitivity to other countries ended up costing him ANY cooperation from Russia he might have hoped for after his meeting with Putin at G20. In this one silly visit to Poland he simply crossed good relations with Russia off the agenda completely. But that’s what Dark State wanted to achieve, as discussed in the same article — and they did. What do you expect of US presidents, or should we say, figureheads, who, because of their utter ignorance and arrogance are so daft that they are too easy to bend to the will of those who hide in the shadows. Just look at Trump ‘inventing’ a new country in Africa during his UN Africa speech a few days ago: ‘Nambia.’ He repeatedly, and very embarrassingly said ‘Nambia,’ and everyone just ate it up. There is no Nambia, but there is a country in Africa called Namibia. My dear American readers, just know that all those African leaders who have politely listened to how well democracy is developing in ‘Nambia,’ will come home and have a good laugh at how ignorant and arrogant Americans are. As Vladimir Putin so aptly put recently, it’s Hard to work with people who confuse Austria and Australia.
And read the big report in question: G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions! For Poland episode look for subtitle TRUMP’S FAUX PAS IN POLAND. Also in the comment section of that article you’ll find extensive exchange with some Polish trolls — the trolls have been banned, but I kept the exchange for educational purposes. In the same comment section you should also find my answers to readers’ questions about Poland.
What is happening in Poland?
Simply put, as I predicted since 2014, and for that at the time I was also attacked by Polish shills: Poland has successfully turned into a bona fide Euro-fascist state.
Starting on October 1, 2017, Poland begins the wholesale destruction of over 500 memorials to WWII Russian/Soviet liberators of Poland from the Nazi Germany in 1944! This includes graves of all those poor soldiers and officers who gave their lives for that inhospitable country! Overall, several hundred thousand Soviet soldiers died liberating Poland. I have heard the numbers between 400,000 and 600,000.
In reality, a gradual desecration and destruction of Russian memorials, monuments and soldiers’ graves all over Poland has been ongoing for a long time. They never dared to do it officially, until they got an OK from the big boss across the Big Pond. This new move by the Polish government sanctifies the wholesale demolition of memory, history, truth and common decency! Poland, just like Ukraine, is in the process of re-writing history, where black is to become white, and vice versa.
Russians have been very upset about this for months, and Russia has downgraded diplomatic relations with Poland.
To be absolutely clear, Poland was one of Hitler’s early allies, and together with Nazi Germany it occupied Czechoslovakia before WWII has even begun. Per Nikolay Starikov’s extensive historic research, greedy and ultra-nationalistic Polish government got into a fight with Hitler. The issue appears to have been that Hitler requested free passage for his troops through Poland in order to attack Russia/USSR, but Poland, it appears, wanted bigger spoils than Hitler was ready to offer. As a result Hitler simply took over Poland in 1939. This move by Hitler is officially considered the start of WWII. Poland’s government fled to Romania, where it vanished(!) without a trace, and after some time, a completely different, self-appointed ‘Polish government in exile’ suddenly emerged in London. Poland as a country seized to exist the day the government fled and the country surrendered without a fight to Hitler.
About two weeks after Poland seized to exist as a country, Stalin ordered to retake territories that were ancestral Russian lands, but that ended up in Poland’s possession after 1917 Russian Revolution. These territories, which now constitute western Belarus and western Ukraine, were judged to be Russian ancestral lands stolen from Russia. However, in this case, there was another urgent reason: when country after country succumbed without a fight to Nazi invasion, The USSR wanted to create a buffer between core Russian/Ukrainian territories and potential attacker in the face of Germany.
In the course of WWII, from the aggressor it really was, Poland smoothly morphed into a poor victim, claiming this status after the end of WWII with the blessing of the USSR, which for geopolitical reasons wanted to keep Poland in its corner. All of Poland’s true evil deeds were hushed up and the USSR turned a blind eye to what Poland really was. For that reason, the USSR for years swept under the carpet some extremely gruesome facts, such as Poland executing at least 240,000 Russian/Soviet soldiers and POWs! This is in addition to several hundred thousand Soviet liberators that perished liberating Poland in 1944! The documents concerning mass executions of Russians by Poland (that’s apart from how many Russian POWs were executed by Nazi Germany and how many of them perished in Auschwitz and other death camps!) have only recently been de-classified, and now they begin emerging. Needless to say, they have shocked Russians, who were led to believe a very different version of history, including the one where 20 thousand Polish troops were executed by NKVD. As it also emerged relatively recently, this was a lie, implanted in documents during Gorbachev’s times. Gorbachev publicly admitted Russian fault and apologized for it to Poland, which caused Poland to escalate animosity and implant hatred of everything Russian in the Polish psyche. As it is now known, it was western Ukraine Bandera ukro-nazis dressed in NKVD uniforms who executed about 16,000 Polish troops, in concert with Nazi Germans.
There are many more extremely uncomfortable facts, such as Polish extreme racism and xenophobia, which I observed first-hand during my 4 visits to Poland. They were always very nice to me, calling me ‘pentna pani’ (pretty woman) – no personal complaints whatsoever. But at the time I was in Poland it was still a part of the socialist camp and it was fashionable to like Russians and have them as friends. However, during my visit, I saw with my very eyes how a huge mob of Poles bullied and beat up one poor black guy, who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The fact is that latent Polish racism, xenophobia and natural inclination towards Nazism have never disappeared. These life-threatening low calibration phenomena just take different forms and are directed against new imaginary enemies, depending on who gives orders in Warsaw — and to Warsaw.
Today, they hate everyone, but first and foremost, Russia is enemy No. 1. Guess what, this is why their American bosses pay them big bucks: barking at Russia and escalating tension and conflict on EU’s eastern borders.
Poland is a subservient vassal of the US. The reason constant tension is necessary is to keep the EU together and united against one common enemy, which is Russia, of course. Otherwise, the EU would fall apart much faster. And another reason, connected to the first: US must keep EU subservient and dependent on US bases and weapons. If there really is no Russian threat, then US bases and US troops can go home, can’t they? Then there is no need for NATO, right? And finally, the US Military-Industrial Complex will lose lucrative European market and go bankrupt, won’t it? They can’t let any of this happen, can they? Poland loves to scream about independence and ‘gonor’ (pride). But in reality they always were a quintessential for-sale-country — to anyone who pays them most.
In addition to all the above, I recently learned about another disgusting development: there is a movement gaining traction in Poland, called ‘the good Ukrainian is a dead Ukrainian.’ Poles are called on killing migrant workers from Ukraine. As I said, Poland is essentially a camouflaged fascist state, although it likes to pretend it’s a victim.
So yes, I know very well about the destruction of over 500 monuments to Soviet soldiers, liberators of Poland. The destruction is supposed to begin on October 1, 2017. However, vandalism and destruction of Russian monuments and Russian churches has been going on in Poland for a long time.
This is such a disgusting and sickening subject that I didn’t want to bring it up on my blog again, following a brief mention in the above-referenced initial article on Putin-Trump G20 meeting. I am only doing this for clarification purposes, per reader request.
Frankly, I also am extremely disgusted about Polish shills and trolls. I really, really didn’t want to go there, but I guess I have to:
A WARNING TO POLISH TROLLS! Any POLISH OR OTHER shill/troll will be immediately outed, all of such troll’s personal info will be publicly exposed, if necessary, EU and/or corresponding country’s authorities will be contacted, and of course such shill/troll will be immediately banned — PER BLOG RULES!

Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus Army Exercise and China-Russia Naval Drills near Korea
Pre-planed Russia-Belarus joint Zapad 2017 War Games ran from September 14 to 20th, 2017. The official number of participating troops, according to Russian and Belorussian official sources, was less than 13 thousand.
There are several things you should know about the army drills usually referred to as ‘Zapad Exercise.’ Zapad drills started in the 1970s USSR. Since then they were conducted every 2-4 years, on average. Last one was in 2013. The largest Zapad Exercise took place in 1980s, when 100,000 Soviet troops took part in Zapad drills.
The Western officials, notably, German defense minister, NATO, as well as Swedish officials and presidents of Poland and the Baltic states, have been convulsing in hysterics since July 2017. According to German war minister, not 12.5 thousand, but 100,000 troops took place in the exercise. Moreover, according to accusations, Russians had a clandestine plan to sneak those extra troops into Belarus under the cover of the night and leave them there! Please explain to me how exactly do you ‘sneak in’ 100,000 troops plus hardware? Is it the same method used to ‘sneak in’ the invisible Russian troops into Donbass?
Furthermore, the devious Russian grand plan is apparently to use these secret troops to attack poor, defenseless Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia — and yeah, Sweden, too! Never mind all those NATO/US bases stationed there.
You probably won’t be surprised to find out that much of this ‘intel’ was supplied to NATO, Germany and others by… Poroshenko and Kiev junta. Just goes to show the level of professionalism and level of intelligence of the German defense ministry and NATO.
Of course, they want to believe this tale with all their might. Why? Because they are looking in the mirror, but are afraid to admit to themselves that it’s their own reflection they are looking at. It’s so much easier to blame everything on Russia. It’s what they’d do in a heartbeat ~ in other words, invade Russia ~ if only Russia didn’t have all those pesky nukes and other cutting-edge weapons they don’t know how to counter.
Don’t believe me; just take a quick look at history. In the past several hundred years Russia was repeatedly invaded by: Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, France, USA, Romania. In other words, the same countries that yell the loudest about ‘Russian threat,’ and the same countries that form NATO!
So, number one: Zapad 2017 was a pre-scheduled exercise, agreed upon 4 years ago, according to Russian sources.
To give you an idea of what’s behind the name, the word ‘zapad’ means in Russian ‘west.’ This is the type of exercise regularly conducted in the western regions of Russia, or USSR in previous days. There is also a similar exercise, also conducted regularly, which is called ‘Tsenter,’ meaning ‘center.’ Those drills take place in central Russia.
Incidentally, the word ‘Zapad’ is pronounced with accent on FIRST ‘a,’ not second, as I hear it pronounced by the Western MSM. Accent on second sounds just too funny, and has a completely different meaning.
Number two: NATO’s Anakonda 2016 exercise took place last year along the borders of Russia and Belarus and it was the largest NATO exercise since the Cold War. The stated purpose of Anakonda war games was to deflect ‘aggression’ by Russia. It was defensive in name only. NATO especially employed RUSSIAN-SPEAKING statists to practice on them various invasion, hostage-taking and interrogation techniques. Usually, war games are not supposed to state the nationality or exact identity of a supposed enemy. During Anakonda 2016 NATO, with avid insistence by Poland, broke this cardinal rule of international relations.
Therefore, even if Zapad 2017 was simply Russia’s and Belarus’s reaction to the outrageous and insulting muscle-flexing by NATO, they are perfectly within their right to do so! The only way to keep the NATO beast at bay is to constantly remind it that Russian invasion is way out of their league, no matter how much they dream of it. The result of each invasion against Russia always ends the same way. I almost dare them to try. The result will be very predictable.
All my readers, as well as all normal and reasonable Western countries’ residents, this one is for you!
Don’t you see what’s happening? NATO, US and Germany’s hysteria notwithstanding, don’t you notice that Poland and three tiny countries located in the Baltics (Lithuania, first and foremost, with its warmongering hitler-in-a-skirt Gribauskaite, also Latvia and Estonia), plus Ukraine’s junta, are trying to engineer a war between the West and Russia. By inventing the ‘Russian threat,’ continuously provoking Russia and escalating hysteria and fear-mongering, they are attempting to ensure that large Western countries, particularly US, France and Germany are tied into an obligation to defend them. They want insurance that if they provoke Russia into responding through their actions, US/Germany/NATO will treat them as victims, not as passive-aggressive provocateurs they are. This was the way WWI started: a manipulated provocation in a small country triggered the major countries’ clash in global war!
In fact, we have seen this so many times! For example, Poland was the earliest aggressor in WWII, who invaded Czechoslovakia together with Hitler, yet it insists it’s a poor victim of German and ‘Russian’ aggression. Saakashvili’s Georgia attacked S. Ossetia, yet it insisted that Russia attacked Georgia — and the likes of Merkel, BBC and CNN just ate it up. The same happened in 2014 with the Kiev junta – and this lie is still ongoing!
All the Dark State / Deep State forces notwithstanding, don’t you see that these secondary countries are trying to manipulate large countries, provoking a massive military confrontation? And the silly Western MSM and sheeple just keep parroting it.
There are other three factors that are important, but not primary. Still, I want to mention them.
- Pentagon and various weapons manufacturers, as well as similar war ministries and manufacturers in Europe want more money. To constantly receive that money they need to keep public in fear of an imaginary enemy. For them Russia always played the role of such convenient enemy. In fact, when Trump began talking about lessening USA’s contribution to NATO, EU countries decided to give US a bribe in the form of more weapons contracts and war games. The elements of this bribe are more US hardware in the EU and more US troops in Eastern Europe. This bribe has proven extremely useful in keeping the gluttonous US military-industrial complex happy, and therefore, in keeping USA fully invested in NATO.
- The bloated machine of NATO itself is having a hard time justifying its measly existence. Every time there is a talk of NATO outliving its usefulness, the sold-out Western MSM comes up with some sort of threat from Russia.
- By constantly maintaining the fear in their populace, US/EU/NATO countries can distract their populations from real problems, such as migrant crisis, terrorist attacks and the growing rape rate by migrants. The West is in the decline mode, albeit slowly. By maintaining this constant fear of an imaginary attack by Russia, they hope to consolidate their sheeple around powers that be, so the sheeple won’t begin rebelling and questioning the obvious.
And here is another great example of the West’s double standards:
Just check out this extensive Wikipedia article on Zapad 2017 exercise. And just check out the anti-Russian tone of this entry! To remind everyone, Wikipedia is supposed to be impartial and neutral.
Zapad 2017 (Russian: «Запад-2017», Belarusian: Захад-2017) is a joint strategic military exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and Belarus (the Union State) that formally began on 14 September 2017 and ended on 20 September 2017, in Belarus as well as in Russia‘s Kaliningrad Oblast and Russia′s other north-western areas. According to the information made public by the Defence Ministry of Belarus prior to the exercise, fewer than 13,000 personnel of the Union State are to take part in the military maneuvers, a number that does not trigger mandatory formal notification and invitation of observers under the OSCE‘s Vienna Document. Western analysts, however, believed in July 2017 that the total number of Russian troops, security personnel and civilian officials to be involved in the broader war-games will range from 60,000 to 100,000, which would make them Russia’s largest since the Cold War. Since 2016, concerns have been voiced in a number of NATO countries over Russia’s suspected ulterior motives and objectives in connection with the exercise.
And now I challenge you to find a similar Wikipedia article on Anakonda 2016, that will honestly say that there were ulterior motives in that NATO exercise, and that Russia raised concerns over the fact that Russian-speaking people were used in it as hostage props for training purposes!
I was actually curious to see how the tone of such article would be different from the Zapad 2017 entry. I typed in Google: ‘Anakonda 2016 wikipedia,’ and this is the page I got! There is only an entry in German, written in a very different tone. It appears that the relevant entry in English was blocked!
Video: Putin attends Zapad 2017 drills
More Zapad 2017 videos
Incidentally, per international rules and unlike US/EU/NATO in Anakonda 2016, Russia/Belarus used FICTIONAL countries in their war games. Another thing worth noting: Zapad 2017, unlike Anakonda 2016, was conducted deep into Belarus territory and far from its western border. In other words, as usual it is clear who is the aggressor, and who only seeks to defend.
At almost the same time as Zapad 2017, joint Russia-China naval drills were conducted near the Korean Peninsula. This is clearly a reaction to Donald Trump’s threat to destroy N. Korea. Just to save his neck and to be on the good side of the Dark State and the establishment, Trump is ready to plunge the world into a nuclear war.
Although not happy with N. Korea’s behavior, clearly, Russia and China won’t let US strike against it. The only way US can be warned not to intervene militarily is to demonstrate Russia and China’s joint resolve and military capability.
Video: Russia-China Naval drills near Korean shores
As I predicted — and sadly, my predictions materialized all too well and all too quickly, Trump has fully succumbed to pressure and behaves like a normal warmongering US president. In fact, he is on his way to surpass Obama, that typical war-mongering Nobel Peace Prize laureate. As I said a few months ago: forget Trump, don’t hope he’ll do anything good that is worth mentioning, and write him off as just another failure.

How fitting that the same ‘Ugly American’ traits were on full display in Trump’s speech, along with the belief/threat that spending more money on military is a substitute for diplomacy. How eerily prescient that the authors in 1958 negatively contrasted American “refusal to integrate” (today called American Exceptionalism) to the “polished abilities of Eastern Bloc (primarily Soviet) diplomacy”.
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.

New page for the FREE EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE Q&A
Much has been written; many videos and pics have been taken of the Hamburg G20 on July 7-8.
I have decided not to repeat what has already been said. Rather, my intention is to put my absolutely unique signature perspective on the whole thing. I have accumulated many thoughts and observations surrounding these topics, this is why this all-encompassing article turned out so substantial. This is exclusive material you won’t find anywhere else; I hope you enjoy it.
On July 7 I tweeted the following:
G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions
In this article I want to lift the veil over the quantum calibrations of various events and meetings, which in turn will give you a pretty good idea as to what really went on and how the participants of G20 fared in Hamburg.
As usual, the legend is:
QC = Quantum Calibration, or cosmic energy available to object or subject
CHI = Chi or earthly energy of manifestation in 3D, of object or subject
To learn more about Quantum and Geo Calibrations go to:
LadaRayYT – look for my two comprehensive videos explaining entire Quantum Calibration System
Overall calibrations for G20, July 7-8, 2017, Hamburg, Germany
QC 180 (pride), CHI 150 (anger) — Rather low calibration; Chi is notoriously low, considering all the protests, as well as tensions and cold shoulders happening between various parties.
Trump was unhappy being sidelined during the G20 ‘family photo’ and never showed up at the gala banquet. Melania was there alone, sitting next to Putin and having a lively and all-smiles discussion with him, as if such situation was orchestrated on purpose. Next day Trump sent Ivanka in his stead for the formal G20 session.
The infamous G20 2017 ‘family photo.’ Trump appears sidelined all the way to the left, between Macron and president of Indonesia. In reality, the protocol supposedly demanded that the newest-elect leaders would be standing furthest from the center. However, I can tell you that these protocols are routinely tweaked to promote a specific agenda, and our dear Western ‘partners’ play this game to perfection.
Recall how the seating at a similar G20 banquet event in Australia was arranged in such a way that Putin was sitting all alone at one of the round tables, while other tables were overcrowded, making it appear as if he was being shunned by others.
In the G20 2017 case, considering Trump’s pride (and yes, he calibrates at the level of PRIDE), this caused much damage to his ego, and in turn prompted his further actions — read more on that below.
By comparison, look at the position of Putin, between Chinese leader Xi and Turkey’s Erdogan.
BRICS meeting on the sidelines of G20
The informal BRICS session – a traditional gathering of the BRICS during each G20 – also didn’t get anywhere. Brazil, under the new pro-US Temer government, is trying to slowly distance itself from the organization. This is a separate discussion, for another time. Today, let’s look at the informal BRICS meeting calibrations.
QC 48 (guilt), CHI (185) — Very unproductive, dismal, in fact.
As I noted previously, QC suggests that there is a big problem; this problem I believe is the behind the scenes attempt by the US to drag Brazil out of the BRICS. Similar attempts are made regarding other weak links within the BRICS: India and S. Africa.
There is a clear attempt being made to isolate Russia and China. Of course, ultimately this is impossible. But what it possible, and being attempted, is this: the slowing down of the Great Earth Shift and of the rebalancing of the world towards a more equitable Multi-Polar World solution. We are presently observing a global give and take struggle, with a lot of positioning among several main global players and hidden forces, such as Deep State/Dark State, with drastically different visions of the future.
This is an absolutely typical struggle for this ongoing GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
PUTIN – TRUMP G20 MEETING
It was the most watched and covered event of G20. The rest has paled and was basically a flop. The word is that Putin and Trump turned G20 into G2. By far the most anticipated event of G20, Putin – Trump meeting was the only bright spot of this dismal event. Arguably, Trump was at G20 specifically to meet with Putin. I believe he used the G20 cover to arrange the conversation with Putin.
This meeting, which met with a huge resistance and sabotage in the US, is basically a rehearsal for the formal meeting between the two, which is being prepared. However, the resistance will always be enormous. Remember the STRAITJACKET I predicted for Trump?
That notorious STRAITJACKET and Trump’s attempts to push back against restrictions, was visible in everything.
The tension, struggle and overcoming resistance shows in the calibration of the Putin-Trump meeting:
QC 210 (confrontational courage), CHI 210 (confrontational courage)
The pre-announced sidelines talk was supposed to last 30 minutes. Instead, it lasted 2 hours and 16 minutes. Only Putin, Trump and respective FMs, Lavrov and Tillerson, as well as translators, were present.
Conspicuously excluded were Trump’s national security adviser, Russophobe McMasters, various aides, and the press.
Trying to disrupt the meeting, the American side sent various envoys into the closed room, attempting to lure Trump away. At the 1+ hour mark Melania Trump was sent in, with words, ‘Can I have my husband back?’ That didn’t work either. The meeting continued well overtime, and except for Putin and Lavrov official pressers, the parties aren’t sharing what was discussed.
Incidentally, during his G20 presser, Lavrov was uncharacteristically annoyed at the press and their dumb questions. Let’s recall that during earlier Trump’s meeting in Washington DC with Lavrov, American MSM was also excluded, while Russian press was allowed in.
Of course, this is part of Trump’s revenge against US MSM, and it also coincides with the wishes of the Russian side. Lavrov, this consummate and impeccable lifetime diplomat, has been lately noticeably pissed at the crazed and ill-bred American ‘journalists’ — something he let being known publicly.
I recently tweeted this:
I don’t know what the big discovery is, to be frank. I’ve known what US MSM was really about since the ’90s, and happily unsubscribed from all American papers, magazines and turned off all TV channels since. If you remember, it was still the time when there really was no internet and papers/magazines/TV were kings.
Back to Putin-Trump meeting. The detail noted by everyone was the handshake. No sign of the usual Trump’s aggressive handshake. Let’s not forget, Putin is martial arts Black Belt – such handshake could be quite risky. 😉
You all recall Trump’s signature handshake, during which he would pull his partner in various directions, in order to disorient and dislodge him. A habit from his tough business-dealing days, this handshake made a very uneasy splash among worried world leaders. Recall how he pulled and tagged on Japan PM’s Abe hand, not letting it go, and when he finally did, Abe winced in pain and exhaled with relief. The same kind of handshake disoriented Canada PM Justin Trudeau to such a degree that he had to brace himself against Trump to avoid toppling over. France’s Macron had to enter into a bona fide wrestling match with Trump, accompanied with a vicious stare, in order to assert himself.
It was unmistakable this time. Trump offered a completely uncharacteristic handshake to Putin. Open hand, palm up. The body language was clear: I have nothing to hide, let’s be friends. For a moment camera caught Putin looking at that hand a bit sceptically. Don’t blame him: Russia has a long history believing the word of Americans and the West in general, only to see it routinely broken. Putin is a student of history, and he is former KGB. He knows exactly what’s going on. Even if Trump himself has good intentions, he is surrounded with too many dark forces who’d spent lifetimes working on one single mission: to prevent any real breakthroughs between Russia and US. (Also, towards the bottom of this article see about Trump’s Polish faux pas).
Will this ever change? I am overall optimistic: it can, but it will take a lot of time, much work and much global rebalancing.
Putin hesitated for only one second – he extended his hand and they shared a very nice, even and mutually respectful handshake. Both displayed some very subtle and, unlike Trump’s normal behavior, inoffensive signature alpha male moves. But Trump’s hand being at the bottom is clearly a somewhat submissive gesture. It sort of says, “I recognize you are the leading alpha male here.”
This takes us back to my original Twitter prediction ‘don’t expect too much from this Putin-Trump meeting.’ Basically they have achieved the main thing: they met and spoke for as long as possible, considering all the pressures Trump has against him. This is already a huge breakthrough. More contacts will continue, but they’ll continue being laced with provocations and sabotage.
This is not to say that positive changes in US-Russia relations aren’t possible. They will be happening, albeit slowly and in small, incremental steps.
Please recall my prediction made in Earth Shift Report 16: US Elections, and in Webinar 1: Will Trump Survive his First Term? These predictions were made in October 2016 and February 4, 2017. Some even earlier. As you’ll see, they are materializing.
1. I said that Trump would be put in a straitjacket, allowed only to move in a narrow channel of possible actions, directed into certain actions and steered away from others. This prediction has been re-confirmed so quickly, so many times an in such spectacular fashion that even I didn’t expect that.
2. I said that US really has very little to offer Russia at this point because Russia is not ready to accept Ukraine back and carry it as dead weight, after it has been utterly destroyed by the 2014 Nuland subversion. I also said that The the Kissinger Ukraine and Post-Soviet Space Plan implies that US will begin slowly and secretly disengaging from Ukraine, as well as certain other areas.
Trump-Putin discussion confirmed all that: Kiev has to observe Minsk agreements; a special envoy has been designated by the US for further talks in Moscow to end Ukraine crisis. Never mind that this envoy is considered McCain’s man — most likely this is yet another move to bide time, until a better solution is found. This better time and better solution will begin in mid-2018 and into early 2019.
Overall, this move indicates Russia wants to include Trump/US in informal negotiations on Ukraine, which in turn indicates the terms of the abandoning of the Ukraine project are on the table.
Meanwhile, the Normandy format met on the sidelines of G20, with only 3 our of 4 parties present. The original Normandy format implied 4 parties: Russia/Putin; Germany/Merkel; France/Hollande (now Macron) and Kiev/Poroshenko. Poroshenko was snubbed for invitation to G20 at Putin’s request, and excluded from negotiations. None of the new developments have been discussed with Kiev by any of the parties.
In reality, both US and Eu leaders can’t wait to get rid of Poroshenko and the whiny Kiev junta — they just don’t know how.
As I said, Russia is absolutely not in a rush to accept Ukraine in this condition, or in any shape or form. Russia will hold off on any decisions until at least mid-2018, in other words, past Russian presidential election. It is likely that Russia will hold this position, watch what happens and do nothing until spring of 2019, after Gasprom shuts down all gas traffic through Ukraine. This is a separate discussion and we’ll have it later.
3. I said that the only possible real cooperation between Russia and USA, which may result in some moderate breakthroughs, is Syria. As we have seen, Putin and Trump agreed on ceasefire and 3 de-escalation zones in Syria. It’s interesting that for now the order in these areas will be maintained by the Russian military police, in coordination with Jordan and US. The roadmap for this de-escalation has been developed during Astana Assad-opposition talks, facilitated by Russia and Kazakhstan. Trump has agreed to this roadmap.
Of course, Russians are reasonably skeptical about this agreement. The previous agreements with Kerry and Obama were all quickly broken by the US. It is clear that Trump (per my original predictions) doesn’t control much of his government and underlings. There are leaks and revolts here and there. This will, unfortunately, continue – again per my predictions.
How Merkel met her guests
Merkel greeted each of her guests on the red carpet. You may have seen that footage. It was pretty remarkable how different her reactions were to various leaders. Let’s calibrate how she felt about some of them!
Merkel greets Trump: QC 85 (grief) – very bad relationship, no wonder Trump sabotaged G20 meeting by sending Ivanka in his stead.
Merkel greets Putin: QC 185 (pride) – Merkel has been basically told the following: Germany needs Nord Stream 2 yesterday, or there will be trouble. Siemens desperately needs fat Russian contracts and big orders to survive. Therefore, suck it up, granny, stop playing your silly games, forget Ukraine and Crimea – it’s time to make up with Russia. As I predicted in 2014: they huff and puff for 2-3 years, and then it’s business as usual.
Merkel greets Erdogan: QC 45 (guilt). Hardly tolerating him – after all, Turkey did boot out German military from its NATO bases.
Merkel greets Macron: QC 210 (confrontational courage). They kissed, Macron is Merkel’s best friend nowadays, especially when it comes to countering Trump or dealing with Ukraine.
PUTIN MEETS CHINA’S XI IN MOSCOW PRIOR TO G20
Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Putin met for two days in Moscow, just before the G20. This was done to compare the notes and so that both countries would present a unified position at the G20 summit. See more here: Xi Jinping meets Putin in Moscow and Giant Putin in Italy cornfield.
As I previously noted, the relationship between the two has been the closest it has ever been. Moreover, by his actions, Trump has been pushing China closer and closer towards Russia. Admittedly, not only China. This concerns even traditionally US-vassal countries such as Japan and S. Korea.
Let’s calibrate the Putin-Xi meeting in Moscow prior to G20:
QC 280 (friendliness/neutrality), CHI 290 – same.
This is very good and considering the shifting times we are in, rather productive. So much higher than any other international events we’ve calibrated! Lately we hardly see this kind of calibration in international relations. The positions were successfully coordinated and a number of major trade deals were signed.
TRUMP’S FAUX PAS IN POLAND
Meantime, before G20 Trump chose to go to Poland. It’s understandable. Poland was the only EU country that met Trump with some sort of admiration — something Trump has been looking for and couldn’t find in the EU. Of course, there was that awkward moment when Poland’s first lady ignored (didn’t notice?) Trump’s extended hand and went straight past him to first greet Melania. And of course, all those Trump-admiring and US-flag-waving Poles were bussed in for the pretty picture…
However, the true reason for Trump’s Poland visit is this. Since Putin was meeting with Xi in Moscow pre-G20, Trump’s Russophobic advisers obliged him to counter that by visiting the most Russophobic country in existence – Poland.
Trump’s trip to Poland: QC 90 (grief); CHI 181 (pride)
Poland, with its unfulfilled imperial ambitions, has been doing everything to grow exponentially the animosity between Russia and EU. Poland secretly was very much behind the 2014 Kiev Maidan and coup. Just like secret CIA jails, the training camps for the Bandera ukro-nazi militants and post-Soviet space opposition activists are located all over Poland. It was Poland’s long-standing aspiration to create a belligerent Russia-hating clone of itself out of Ukraine.
I had been too lenient on Poland for a while, giving them too much of the benefit of the doubt, and rarely talking about Poland’s hideous role. Poland has been known to hide behind the backs of bigger and stronger countries, where they would in the dark, quietly, do their ugly deeds.
They once hid behind UK’s back to quietly sabotage Russian Empire and then early USSR, including the killing of the Soviet ambassador. Then they hid behind Germany/Hitler’s back to invade Czechoslovakia. Later they hid behind USSR’s back to chop of a chunk of Germany. Today they are hiding behind USA’s back, trying to chop off chunks of Ukraine and Belarus, and swallow Lithuania whole.
However, I did warn about Poland at least once. My very mild 2014 prediction that Poland is turning into a bona fide Euro-fascist state, while at the same time trying to resurrect its failed medieval empire by absorbing Ukraine, Lithuania and parts of other countries, met back then with backlash from some Polish shills. Otherwise, it went unnoticed by my readers, probably because no one takes Poland seriously. This mistake had been made before. Hitler was once also not taken seriously.
It is completely hushed up in the West, therefore, very few know this. Several days ago the Russian Duma has considered a proposal to sever all diplomatic ties with Poland, expelling Polish ambassador and recalling Russian ambassador. This proposal has not been given green light yet. However, Polish ambassador has been conveniently absent from Moscow for a while, denoting an all-time low in bi-lateral relations.
You may ask: what’s going on?
At this time Poland is engaged in the wholesale destruction of over 500 monuments to Soviet soldiers who liberated Poland in 1944 from fascism. Over 600,000 Soviet/Russian lives were lost while liberating Poland during WWII. Now they are exhuming the bodies of these soldiers, including Russian POWs killed in Auschwitz, in order to ‘de-communize,’ as they put it. Russians asked for the remains of their people to be given to Russia for proper re-burial in the Russian land, but Poland refused.
Incidentally, did you ever wonder why the two most deadly and gruesome Nazi concentration camps were located on the territory of Poland? I can tell you why: because the energy of Poland was a good match for them.
Are there normal Poles, who disagree with what the government is doing? Undoubtedly. I do follow what’s happening there, and I’ve seen some honest and brave people trying to stand up to injustices. But, much like in the neighboring fascist Ukraine, I’ve seen time and again how these people are jailed, fired and viciously maligned. This is not the topic of this post, so I won’t give examples here.
I’ll just say that Poland, member of the EU and NATO, whose ex-PM is now the president of the EU, has developed into a full-fledged closet Euro-Nazi state. And Germany, EU and the West are simply looking the other way. The reason they don’t notice what’s happening under their very noses in either Ukraine or Poland is that they NEED Poland (as well as Ukraine) as a convenient ram against Russia. This started in medieval times, when the Vatican converted Poland into Catholicism, after which Poland became that notoriously violent ram. Nothing has changed since, and Poles seem to be enjoying this unseemly role.
The truth is that while normal people do exist in Poland, like in Ukraine, they are frightened and suppressed. Meanwhile the history is being re-written and the new generation is taught rabid Russophobia. It pains me to say this, but the majority of Poles are in fact crazed and violently xenophobic, Russia-, Ukraine- and Germany-hating ultra-nationalists.
I won’t go into any more gruesome details. Instead I highly recommend you visit the comment section under my recent post June 22, 1941: Nazi Germany attacked USSR. The ghost of Bandera. Who’ll decide the future of Ukraine. This comment section contains a very good expose of Poland’s true nature and real historic role, written by me and Nemo. This expose will give you a good perspective of the issue.
Back to Trump in Poland: let’s look at the logic of events. So, Trump is planning to meet with Putin for the first time the next day; he plans to establish bridges with Russia; he plans to discuss Russian cooperation is Syria, N. Korea and Ukraine… And knowing the whole background, just before that Trump goes to Poland.
While in Poland, Trump has talked about how much Americans love Poles (he forgot to mention all those American Polish jokes, lol). Trump also lauded Poland on striving for independence from its past, while re-writing its history in the process. Finally, Trump expressed support for Poland trying to get rid of its ‘dependence on Russian gas’ and solemnly promised that US will replace Russia as Polish gas supplier soon. Sure it will: American fracking LNG gas is only about 4 times more expensive than Russian. It’ll be a very profitable deal for Poland indeed.
Did Trump really understand what he’d gotten himself into, was he able to calculate the implications? Most likely, not. And very probably, he had no choice.
Therefore, I am making a very smooth and logical conclusion that the trip to Poland — filled with Russophobic agenda — was orchestrated by Trump’s straitjacket creators (his jailers, in fact) in order to derail the meeting with Putin. And how unfortunate that Trump in fact holds so little true power that he couldn’t get out of it.
Now you see why I said ‘don’t expect too much from the Putin-Trump meeting,’ and why I predicted long ago that the only true cooperation between US and Russia is possible in Syria, and only in small, incremental steps.
Sure, Putin was his usual diplomatic and polite self; he and Lavrov made the best out of Trump meeting at G20. But gestures like visiting Poland before the meeting and promising them ‘liberation from Russian gas’ won’t be forgotten. This is something that will continue being a thorn between Trump and Russia for as long as he is president, unless USA makes visible concessions elsewhere. Where – I’m sure we’ll discuss that eventually.
Sure, in a true Great Balancer fashion, Russia will still make every peaceful attempt to keep the relations with US going and to keep Trump out of harms way. No matter what, Trump is a lot better as US president than any alternative. Russia must continue re-balancing away from the brink of WWIII, to which Obama almost brought the world, and which Hillary would have escalated. Trump and Tillerson understand the need to step away from that brink. This is why Russia will continue talking with them.
But the trip to Poland was an unforgivable faux pas. It effectively derailed any proper cooperation. My prediction is that it will be very hard for Trump to get a true Russian cooperation when he’ll really need it. This has drained the last remaining shreds of Trump’s credibility.
And as I said, the Trump’s straitjacket creators engineered this scenario with this specific purpose in mind. Too bad Trump didn’t have the smarts and foresight to get out of it. After all, he was able to get out of G20 meetings and banquet, didn’t he? Overall, however, his straitjacket seems to be pretty tight.
Ivanka substituting for Trump at the G20 meeting
I am actually curious myself as to the calibration of this event. My immediate reaction is a distaste towards such open nepotism. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t dislike Ivanka; I think she is very good-looking and probably smarter than most of those ‘world leaders.’ Trump also has very few people he can trust and lean on – she is one of them. That said, the way it was styled and executed, the questions and aftertaste remain.
But let’s see what the calibration says!
The result of Ivanka sitting in for Trump: QC and CHI both 80 (grief).
Therefore, it was a very bad idea, on all levels. Obviously, Trump wanted to mock the proceedings, after having been snubbed, as he interpreted it, for the G20 ‘family’ photo. Still a bad idea. Nepotism never works. It reeks of a lack of integrity, and shall we say… desperation. Hence GRIEF as the calibration result.
Lukashenko of Belarus and his nepotism
Is this the sign of the times?
Incidentally, this reminds me of how Lukashenko of Belarus behaved during the recent New Silk Road Summit in Beijing (One Way, One Road Forum). He was invited there due to the fact that the main Silk Road through Russia into Western Europe must go through Belarus, in order to bypass Ukraine.
An interesting detail is that the Silk Road, in order to reach its main target Germany, must after Belarus go through Poland. Not only Poland has been openly hostile towards Russia, and by extension, to China, but Polish representatives were conspicuously missing at the Beijing One Way Forum. As a matter of fact, ALL European leaders were conspicuously missing, except two. The president of Czech Republic, who always openly styles himself as the only Russophile in the EU, and Greek PM Tsipras.
Czechia wants the lucrative New Silk Road to go through its territory, but you still need Poland, or alternatively western Ukraine. Now it’s especially clear why both Ukraine and Poland had to become Russia-hating entities, recreating the Iron Curtain. The southern branch can go through Turkey, Greece and into the Balkans, to connect with Austria and Germany, but it also has obstacles along the way.
Probably thinking himself indispensable for the success of the New Silk Road, the puffed up from pride Lukashenko broke all protocols by bringing with him his teenage son, whom he kept by his side at all times during meetings with other world leaders. He placed his son in the Beijing summit ‘family’ photo, next to over 20 world leaders.
Lukashenko placing his son in the midst of the world leaders calibrates at: QC 40 (guilt), CHI 8 (near death).
Generally, Lukashenko has completely lost any semblance of perspective and any sense of reality. I hate to predict it, but he is putting his poor son in danger by displaying such nepotism and openly pushing him into the limelight, as if grooming him for the next ‘tsar of Belarus.’ Again, hate to predict this, but due to his crazy behavior, Lukashenko’s days at the helm are numbered. He may be allowed to quietly retire, but that’s about it. Give him 2-3 years tops. Could be less. Russia in very interested in a peaceful transition of power in Belarus, so everything will be done so there is no violence.
PUTIN AND NEPOTISM
And here is a clear contrast for you: this is how Putin feels about nepotism. First, let me just say that Putin, by all polls and measures is consistently recognized as the most powerful world leader. Not only Belarus’s Lukashenko, but even Donald Trump isn’t in the same leagues.
When asked, Putin said that he never wanted his daughters and grandsons to grow up as princes and princesses. It was important that they had privacy and developed away from the limelight as their own people, true to their own path.
Calibrating Putin’s position on this: QC 481 (humanity and compassion) CHI 290 (neutrality/friendliness).
Very wise, and almost off-the-charts high calibration. That’s the real world leader for you.

Hope all of you who celebrate July 4th have had a good time. We are back online after a couple of days off. This week, as the rest of the year, is expected to be very eventful.
Xi Jinping spent 2 days in Moscow with his wife, during which time $12 bln worth of business deals were signed between Russia and China.
G20 begins in Germany. The highlight of the summit is anticipated to be the Trump-Putin meeting on July 7.
I have lots of news of my own, including the finalized dates for upcoming Earth Shift Webinars 3 and 4, pricing change, as well as some mega-announcements about more upcoming events. The 3-Webinar subscribers already have this info posted on their LINKS PAGE.
Look for my FT post with all these news later today or tomorrow!
To get our feet wet after the long weekend, I’m offering you a couple of today’s interesting news.
Ahead of G20, an Italian farmer transformed his cornfield into a giant Putin portrait, using his tractor and demonstrating impressive artistic skills:
Xi Jinping and Putin really hit it off, and relations between Russia and China are the best they have ever been in history. This is the third time this year the two leaders have met. Last year they met 6 times.
Remember my 2014 predictions? One of them was that the more West tries to put sanctions or vilify Russia, the more Russia will swing to the East, and toward China as the leader of the East.
One of my flagship millennial predictions is about Russia the Great Balancer rebalancing the world away from the West and towards the East.
The latest threatening moves by the US towards China work the same way: they very effectively push China closer and closer towards Russia. The grand sum is yet again, my prediction coming to fruition: Russia the Great Balancer rebalancing away from the West and towards the East.
Of course, we talk a lot more about Russia The Great Balancer and the Great Earth Shift in my new 3 Earth Shift Webinar Series: ESW2 Inverted Collapse, ESW3 The Future of Money, ESW4 Period 8 Predictions. To order click on link.
A very admirable sentiment from #POTUS Donald Trump that peace needs to be made between Russia /Donbass and Ukraine. I couldn’t agree more. Looks like Trump is on his way to make good on his campaign intention, and according to my predictions here and also here.
USA wants to slowly and secretly distance itself from Ukraine, while attempting to save face. What a bummer for Obama and his handlers, after all their efforts to the contrary!
This alone was enough to cause a major Internet storm. But it gets better!
Notice one crucial difference between two photos, the difference that made the Kiev junta very upset?
Is it that Trump thought it was too much trouble to get up for Ukraine FM Klimkin? Is Klimkin bending, as if receiving orders from the big boss?
Feel the difference…
WHY TRUMP MET WITH LAVROV
Foreign Ministries of Russia and US are preparing the first meeting between Trump and Putin, which most likely will take place during the upcoming G20 in Germany. Several countries competed to host the first Trump – Putin meeting, including Finland, Germany and Austria. Obama admin purposely left much baggage behind in Russia-US relations so to complicate as much as possible the first steps of Trump admin. That baggage first needs to be sorted out, before the meeting can take place.
This is one of the reasons Angela Merkel flew to Sochi to see Putin on May 2, after she saw Trump: to sort through the past, get a firm confirmation that the historic meeting will indeed take place and see if she could get more indication on its terms.
Merkel also came to bring to Putin that proverbial olive branch. After all, she will stand for re-election later this year. In her mind it’s time to mend relations with Russia, but not because she means it. No – in order to ensure that the new US and EU bogeyman, ‘the Russian hackers,’ won’t ‘interfere’ in German elections.
Following Tillerson Moscow visit, Lavrov was in DC also to begin shaping up the terms and tone of the US-Russia relations for the upcoming Trump years. This, of course, includes Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Ukraine.
Lately, US has been excluded from various global decisions and forums, such as the Minsk forum on Ukraine or the Astana forum on Syria and Middle East. The latest is the exclusion of the US from the big China summit.
Russia has offered US some face-saving good deals on participation in Syria, albeit a very controlled participation. US is also concerned that Russian influence in Afghanistan and Iraq is increasing, while USA’s is waning. That has also factored into negotiations. As I predicted all along, per the Kissinger Plan, in exchange, US will need to slowly withdraw from Ukraine, Moldova and some other Eurasian areas (learn all about it in Lada Ray Webinar below!).
Recommended Webinar, ESR and articles to gain a full picture and to familiarize yourself with Lada Ray predictions:
WHY TRUMP MET WITH UKRAINE’S KLIMKIN
The entire Kiev junta, including Poroshenko, MSM, high level officials and politicians rooted for Hillary and mocked Trump during his campaign. Poroshenko personally initiated a scandal as a result of which Trump had to fire his campaign manager last August. After Trump won, Poroshenko and entire Kiev establishment promptly flip-flopped and began kissing Trump’s behind. I am NOT exaggerating – if anything, I am toning it down!
The latest intel: Washington lobbyists were paid $400,000 to make sure Klimkin is allowed in Trump’s presence. The audience lasted 6 minutes. During it, Trump merely uttered that ‘Minsk agreements have to be fulfilled and Ukraine has to make up with neighbors.’ That was the end of the meeting.
P.S. Latest: the $400,000 lobbyist fee was put up for Ukraine by… Canada.
So, why did Trump agree to receive Klimkin? It’s 2-fold:
1. To appease Russia-hating MSM, hawks in Congress and all over US, who’d immediately jump on it: why is he talking to Lavrov, but not to Ukraine FM?
2. To deliver the message, understood by those who need to understand it: US is preparing to disengage from Ukraine. And if Kiev doesn’t want to be left entirely in the cold, it needs to toe the line and fulfil the unfulfillable Minsk agreements.
In fact, a proof of the slow unraveling of the disastrous US – Ukraine entanglement is already here: US Congress voted to slash American financing of Ukraine, including military financing, by 70%. As a special provision, the document stipulates that whatever financing will still be provided, it cannot be used to finance the regiment Azov and other ukro-nazi ragiments and battalions. The slow squeezing of the hard-core Ukraine Nazis and radicals has begun.
This is only the beginning – more to come between 2017 and 2018!

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.

Nancy, you answered your own question. Nothing to add really.
But let’s broaden our perspective. The reasons for this move are as follows:
1. This is a general knee jerk reaction to the fact that they know they are losing and they have to show their teeth. There is no Russian aggression. If anything, just the opposite. But this is a cornered beast’s reaction to something they can’t control any more. This is the spoiled global bully’s reaction who always managed to terrorize others without recourse and suddenly it gets told that this won’t happen any more.
2. Erdogan’s threat to boot out US/NATO from Incirlik Base is relevant to this knee jerk reaction.
3. In addition, this is the continuation of the same anti-Trump time bomb installation, in order to make relations with Russia as difficult to normalize as possible.
4. This is also done to reassure NATO that it won’t be abandoned by the US – something NATO fears greatly. NATO is in panic: they may lose many of their fat gigs and much of their self-importance if Trump pulls financing.
5. Finally, this is done to reassure Merkel, Poland, Baltics, Romania and Brussels – in short, all the E. Europe and generally EU puppet states, who were installed by US/West in the 1990s to keep the Iron Curtain alive and well. These are the governments and politicians who sold out to the shadow forces and who now fear being abandoned by Trump. They have so many skeletons on their closets that now they are afraid to be left without US tanks.
7. IMPORTANT! However, it’s not Russia they are afraid of. Russia continues underscoring with all her behavior that there will be no Russian intervention either in Ukraine or any other place in E. Europe, despite the pleas of many people in Ukraine and beyond.
What these sold-out E. Europe/EU politicians are afraid of is the wrath of their own people. This will happen the moment US tanks and US advisors leave.
Therefore, the fear of the ‘potential’ Russian aggression is just a cover to dupe their electorate and to distract the people from internal problems. In reality, all these politicians, military, intelligence and MSM are afraid of their own people and of the ‘potential’ and ‘probable’ crimes tribunal.
8. ALSO IMPORTANT!
I have to underscore again that Angela Merkel is very important in this new development. She will stand for re-election in 2017, while her ratings have plunged lately, as I predicted they would, back in 2014. This is due to her disastrous domestic and international policies, most importantly: 1. due to her immigrant policies; 2. her support of the Kiev junta and illegal coup against Yanukovich; 3. her support of anti-Russian sanctions.
Merkel bet all her money on Obama and on being a US puppet, as well as the puppet of the global banking cartel. Her job has been to keep EU under control of these forces.
She also bet her entire career on the NWO and neo-liberal agenda. And this is what will bury her career. She feels threatened due to alternative parties gaining on her. Both left and right hate her; same is true for people in her own party.
She needs US tanks to keep her safe and to stop any possible uprising.
9. In general, all these NWO/US puppet EU politicians now feel under threat. Trump announced he would be against globalism, and that he would curb the US financing of NATO. Trump is also gearing to undo much of Obama’s ‘legacy.’
NATO and Obama have to show that they are still relevant. In fact, all this is a death throes hysterics.
Notice also this: masks are entirely off!
Remember all this talk about ‘AAMDS in Europe’ – one of the cornerstones of Bush-Obama policies for EU and NATO? Russians for years have been saying that the AAMDS installed in Romania and agreed to be installed in Poland, was directed against Russia. NATO/US have been adamantly insisting it was directed against potential Iran aggression against EU. In reality no one ever believed that.
Now, having been cornered, having lost their former control over global, Middle Eastern and European events, they don’t pretend any more. Fake Iran threat doesn’t cut it any more. They need a much bigger enemy. To distract their own populations from their real problems and to redirect their anger and fears towards fake external threats, they need now to point the finger at Russia. Russia had been used as a scapegoat to scare the populations in the West into submission and maligned this way since forever. I’ve seen it all my life; generations before me have witnessed the same.
Meanwhile, the only thing the populations of Europe, and of the US as well, have to fear are their own sold-out governments and media.
Unfortunately, we are dealing with some very aggressive beasts here, who won’t give up without trying to drag everyone into the abyss with them. They won’t succeed long-term, but short-term they’ll try to do whatever damage they can.
P.S. Incidentally, much of the same is happening now in Ukraine. Kiev junta is behaving both violently and bizarrely, indicating the worsening death throes.
Amid all this ugliness, there is a big and beautiful silver lining. It seems darkest before the dawn, but don’t let that fool you. Both in the US/EU and in E. Europe/Ukraine/Moldova big changes are afoot.
I know last year I promised a major Ukraine, Moldova and Pridnestrovie update. I want to share with you all some hugely positive breakthrough news from the latter two and also a lot of news from the former. The Earth Shift is underway, and Ukraine/Moldova are shifting right on schedule, per my 2014-15 predictions!
Please stay tuned for important updates. I’ll probably do them as YT videos.

Russian Railways is working on the concept of a cargo train, which will be capable to carry from 300 to 600 tonnes of cargos at a speed up to 300 km per hour.
Cargo transit shipments from Europe to China by Russian high-speed railway will take two days instead of 60 days by sea, President of Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov said speaking at a meeting of the United Russia faction.
“We plan to reach China via Kazakhstan and to carry special high profit cargos to Europe via Russia, because a ship sails now 60 days, which is a long time. It sails round India and only than arrives to Europe. With a high speed (railway) transport we will be able to deliver goods in two days, and to earn extra money for our country,” he said.
Russian Railways’ main task for 2017 is the launch of the project and the start of the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high speed railway.
The Moscow-Kazan High Speed Railway’s total length will stand at around 770 kilometers. Trains may go at a speed of 350-400 kilometers per hour, and the time en route between the two cities could be 3-3.5 hours against the current 14 hours. According to Belozerov the railroad may be commissioned before 2022-2023.
The total cost of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway line is estimated at 1.068 trillion rubles ($16.8 bln). The Moscow-Kazan section may later be extended to China, connecting the two countries across Kazakhstan. According to the Russian Railways, the length of Moscow-Beijing railroad will be 7769 km, travel time – 32.8 hours (four times faster compared to current 130.4 hours). The average annual passenger traffic is estimated at 195 mln people.
China intends to provide 400 bln rubles ($6.5 bln) for the project of Moscow-Kazan high speed railway as a credit for 20 years and more than 100 bln rubles ($1.6 bln) as a contribution to the charter capital of the special project company.
The German Initiative Consortium (includes Siemens, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bahn and other companies) is ready to allocate 2.7 bln euros to finance the construction of the high-speed railway line and to attract up to 800 mln euros for the project.

Libya 2.0? West demands Syria no-fly zone. Retaliation? Russian Kalibr Missiles strike US Intel Center
West demands Syria no-fly zone, but only for Russians & Syrians
Yes, we have heard and seen this before. Remember what that fake no-fly zone did to Libya? Remember Qaddafi?
They tried to unseat Syria’s Bashar Al Assad in all ways possible: from accusations of chemical weapons, threats to bomb, arming ISIL and other terrorist groups, to insistence that ‘Assad must go.’ Nothing worked. Now they want once again to try to pull the same number they once did in Libya. Is anyone dumb enough to fall for it yet again?
A typical MO of a dying empire: they are so decadent, so stuck in the their imaginary ‘America is exceptional’ little world that they are unable to assess the reality on the ground. They don’t understand that the ship has sailed.
Listen to what Germany’s PM Frank-Walter Steinmeier and US Secretary of State John Kerry say at the UN: ‘We need no-fly zone.’ Yes, echoes a US general, we agree to a no-fly zone: Russian and Syrian airforces must be grounded, but only them; our jets must continue flying.
Incidentally, listen carefully to how Kerry phrases his statement. He insists on temporarily grounding of all aircraft over Syria. Of course, we all know what happened in Libya after ‘all’ aircraft was supposedly grounded: US and allies came in and began bombing Qaddafi’s forces, followed by the ISIL takeover of the country with subsequent horrid death by Qaddafi himself.
Therefore, certainly no one will fall for this again. However, in the run up to my new ESR11: THE IMPORTANCE OF 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTIONS (to be released tomorrow 9/24), I want to emphasize one point! Among other crucial things, in ESR11 I discuss the Syria developments and US/West bombing of the Syrian army. In this regard I provide my take on the shifting situation within the US elites. In the FREE Part 1 of the report you’ll see me talk about a rift within US elites, as well as attempts by Kerry to play his own game. Check it out!
BREAKING NEWS! Retaliation for Syrian army’s bombing? Did Russia strike joint US/Israel/West/Turkey Intelligence Center in Aleppo?
Text in Russian:
Согласно сообщению информационного агентства Fars News, “российские военные корабли выпустили три ракеты “Калибр” по иностранному офицерскому координационному оперативному центру в районе Дар Эзза (Dar Ezza), убив 30 израильских и западных офицеров”. Военные США вместе с союзниками создали полевой “Оперативный центр” (Field Operations Room) в районе Алеппо, укомплектованный личным составом разведывательных служб. В нем действовали сотрудники разведок США, Британии, Израиля, Турции, Саудовской Аравии и Катара. Профессор экономики Оттавского университета, основатель и директор Центра изучения глобализации (Канада) Мишель Хосудовский пояснил, что Российская сторона нанесла удар по разведывательному объекту США непосредственно после воздушных ударов ВВС США по вооруженным силам Сирии в районе Дейр-эз-Зор в поддержку террористов ИГИЛ. Оперативный центр находился в западной части провинции Алеппо в районе горы Саман, где имеется много древних пещер. Регион расположен в глубине горной цепи. Центр в регионе Алеппо использовался для координирования действий на земле с разведывательными действиями беспилотников и для нанесения ударов с воздуха. Согласно сообщению агентства Fars, личный состав разведывательных служб участвовал также в планировании и осуществлении нападения ВВС США на сирийских вооруженных сил (Syrian SAA forces), которое было проведено непосредственно после заключения женевского соглашения о перемирии.
My English summary translation:
According to Fars News agency, Russian military ships launched three Kalibr cruise missiles; the strike hit the Dar Ezza joint intelligence coordination center for the US coalition, killing 30 Israeli and Western officers. The center, aka, Field Operations Room near Aleppo is staffed with officers from US, Turkey, UK, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar. Canadian researcher Michel Chossudovsky says that the center was hit after US coalition forces bombed the Syrian army. The intelligence center in question provided intelligence and played a leading role in making the bombing happen.
Incidentally, in tomorrow’s ESR11, I will explain why the US attack on Syrian army was no accident and why it happened right before Russian Elections of September 18!

German Chancellor Angela Merkel flip-flops to finally admit: terrorists are smuggled into Europe amid refugee flow.
I had warned about it since 2014-15, and so did others who understood the situation properly. But Merkel stubbornly refused to acknowledge the well-known fact: uncontrolled flow of migrants and refugees to Europe encourages the infiltration and growth of terrorist sleeper cells. She has begun singing a different tune now.
Below is an RT report, summarizing well Merkel’s attitude and its consequences. I disagree with one point: Peter Oliver’s conclusion that Merkel is always hard to read and no one knows what she’ll do next.
On the contrary, Merkel is very easy to read. She was toeing the neoliberal/neocon globalist agenda for as long as she could, which included the unabated flow of migrants into Europe. She did that until German people started seriously rebelling and her rating dropped precipitously. Presently in Germany there are revolts and rallies demanding her impeachment, which was unthinkable a year ago.
This is why Merkel has to flip-flop to appease her electorate and to try to forestall a mutiny in her country and her political class, which is already brewing. She is hanging by a thread and all she can do is to try and calm down the Germans in order to buy time, while attempting to maneuver out of the worst case scenario for her departure. For that she has enough smarts and cunning. Can she fool her people long enough to allow herself a more or less dignified departure? She is so slippery, and Germans have become so subdued that it’s possible. In fact her policies, especially as it concerns the Middle East and Turkey have been utter disaster. Before that, she supported the Kiev Maidan and regime change. When it became clear that ukro-nazis and civil war in Donbass were an embarrassment to the EU, generating mutiny in her own party and on the street, only then she began to take steps to support the peace process and reigning in on Poroshenko. These are just two examples of her latest fiascos.
‘No one knows what she might do next’? That’s because she has no backbone and no convictions of her own. As they say, she just sways in whatever direction the wind blows, or wherever necessary for her own survival and benefit.
I predicted this since 2014. Recall how many times I said that Merkel was the convenient and familiar ‘Frau next door,’ suitable for Germany during quiet and fat times. She is, however, completely unsuitable for Germany or EU amid today’s challenges and turmoil. She is also completely unsuitable as one of the world leaders and the leader of the EU. Let’s just say: she is not the EARTH SHIFT material and should be out.
This is my solid recommendation for Germany: just about anyone would be better than Merkel.
Can she be unseated and is it possible for Germans to elect someone who will steer the country well? That is a big question and I foresee a problem there.
Let’s face it, Merkel isn’t alone. None of the ‘leaders’ presently in power in the EU and the West in general are good enough, or suitable enough. This is why a major change of the guard and a change of power is necessary; it is coming to all Western countries soon.
Incidentally, I discuss what Merkel really is in:

Vladimir Putin has completed his 2-day state visit to Greece, where he met with Greek PM Alexis Tsipras and Greek president. At the airport Putin was lavishly greeted, complete with red carpet, honorary guard and 3 jets flying overhead in his honor.
Putin arriving to Greece:
Greece, much like Italy, Cyprus, Hungary and France, as well as Germany, is trying to find a way to bypass sanctions and to increase trade with Russia. If you ask me, the easiest way to ‘bypass’ sanctions is to simply end them. But Brussels and Berlin play games, and this is what gets the rest of Europe in trouble.
One area for both Italy and Greece that may shine is Russian tourism, especially after Russian tourism left Turkey and Egypt. Another area could be investments. As I mentioned before, Italians are active at investing in Crimea, and so are Germans. Russian companies would be glad to invest in EU, should the opportunities present themselves. Russian energy is always of great interest for Greece, Italy and most of Europe. However, the political games being played make it difficult for businesses to make deals based on reason and necessity.
In view of the EU sanctions, Russia works with certain separate countries, such as Greece and Italy.
The clear three reasons Italy and Greece are at the forefront of friendly relations with Russia are:
- Their economy is more dependent on trade with Russia and, therefore, they have much more to lose from bad relations with Russia;
- Club Med countries suffer more than Germanic countries from EU’s economic downturn and their need for additional markets is much stronger than for some Western European counties;
- Greece and Italy are traditionally some of the most friendly to Russia countries in the EU.
Greek PM Tsipras talked about the pressing need to remove sanctions and proposed to serve as an intermediary between Russia and EU.
During the visit, Putin mentioned that it was time to translate the great relations between Greece and Russia into mutual economic benefit.
Putin – Tsipras meetup video: Russia and Greece sign various documents re. improving trade relations, energy, tourism and other cooperation agreements.
Notice the important symbolism and body language on the above video image!
Putin and Tsipras are clearly leaning towards each other. This always denotes mutual trust and affinity. In fact, Tsipras is leaning towards Putin more.
Now, let’s look at Putin’s arms. They are open, which means he has nothing to hide. But Tsipras arms are folded, which means he is guarded or isn’t as open as he’d like to be. The reason for this regrettable (as Tsipras is, no doubt, considering – just look at his pensive face) guardedness is revealed by the flag situation to the right of the image. Greek flag is there next to the EU flag, sort of juxtaposing itself to the Russian flag on the other side.
Here is the hidden message conveyed:
‘We, Greece are talking to Russia, but haven’t forgotten that we are a member of the EU, whether we like it or not.’
In fact, as revealed by the combination of Tsipras’ body language, the fact of Putin being met as a very special guest upon arrival to Greece, and the added symbolism of the flags, there is a dissonance being present.
Tsipras hidden message is: we would love to have tighter and more intimate relations with Russia; in fact, that would be our preference, but we are confined by our membership in EU, which imposes severe limitations on who and to what degree we can be friends with.
During his visit to Greece, Vladimir Putin also visited the Sacred Mount Athos (RUS: Гора Афон), the so-called Republic of the Monks, housing 20 Orthodox monasteries, including a 1000-year-old Russian monastery. During service, the monks put Putin in the emperor’s place. Since you can’t sit during an Orthodox service, on visits to Mount Athos Byzantium Emperors of old would stand in a specially constructed, gilded honorary portico.
Putin in Byzantium emperor’s portico. Photo says: ‘Greece treats Putin like king during visit’:
Brief video – Putin on Mount Athos:
This is a longer, 25 min video of Putin’s visit to Mount Athos:
The monks recall a story of this good omen: during Putin’s first visit to Mount Athos in 2005, a donkey appeared on the road, and it ran in the center of the road in front of, and then next to, Putin’s car all the way down hill. On Putin’s way back, the donkey waited for him and again ran in front of his car, this time all the way uphill. The monks interpreted that as a fortunate sign from the Holy Mother, the patroness of Mount Athos.
In conclusion: Dmitry Medvedev has dropped a sanctions bombshell
Dmitry Medvedev has announced that Russia intends to extend her anti-EU/US food and agricultural embargo (aka, return sanctions) till the end of 2017. This is what Russian domestic agricultural producers ask us to do, said Medvedev.
Recall that I predicted this outcome from the beginning of the 2014 events. I said that EU’s anti-Russian sanctions are a blessing in disguise and that Russia will use them to strengthen domestic agricultural producers, as well manufacturers, who will be able to occupy the shelves with their products, previously entirely filled by imports.
I also said that the longer EU continues with sanctions, the more European products will find themselves squeezed out of the Russian market.

In the midst of Ukraine’s horrors and struggles (and not only Ukraine’s), I just wanted to post something positive…
In Russia May 1 (May Day) was traditionally celebrated as both the holiday of spring and nature and as the day of the international solidarity of workers. Many came for holiday parades and then spent the day on the town with their families, amid street entertainment and vendors, who tried to outdo themselves for the cheerful crowds. Others chose to go to dachas (traditional Russian country homes with garden plots), beaches, or nature to officially kick off the warm season. In nature the guitar-accompanied songs were sung and something yummy was usually made in a fire pit. This is how I remember this day.
May 1 today is an official state holiday in about 55 countries and is celebrated in over 140 countries.
This is to the issue of remembering and accepting your past and honoring you traditions that we discussed in SPRING 2016 UKRAINE REPORT: War Against Memory:
The colorful May 1 parade on Red Square and on central streets of all cities and towns was a time-honored USSR tradition. After 1991 it was discontinued for 20 years – thank Yeltsin for that.
Three years ago it was again re-started, following the overwhelming vote by the people. Yesterday, May 1, 2016, 100,000 people marched on Red Square alone – this was the unified march of the Trade Unions, organized together with the ruling United Russia party. Plus, Russian Communist Party had its own mass parade. Other parties had their own rallies, as well.
A short clip with highlights of the colorful Red Square May 1 Parade, plus, highlights from Vladivostok, Kazan’, St Petersburg, and other Russian cities:
