NEW From the Creators of Kiev Maidan:
USA Actively Subverting Greece & Instigating Religious War!
They successfully subverted Ukraine. They successfully turned Russia’s closest sisterly nation Russophobic and fascist.
It may be the dying empire, but it still has a lot of bite. Its servants and vassals are still many, and as I continuously predict, they’ll be fighting tooth and nail and they’ll try to take everyone they can with them into the abyss.
Grim prediction, but accurate. Thankfully, we have Russia, who will continue stopping mankind from plunging into the abyss. We still have good and honest people, we also have a small but powerful number of the highly evolved people, who will continue speaking the truth and revealing their true clandestine plans. And together we’ll shift the situation to a better outcome. But at a cost. The cost is grave and it is being paid every day.

Meet USA’s next victims: GREECE and CHRISTIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH!
Chummy Putin and Greek PM Tsipras, 2017
The US got it: they lost the Nord Stream-2 battle and they are trying to switch to sabotaging the Turkish-Southern Europe Stream. There is a serious rumor about how they are meddling in Greece and Turkey.
You remember how several years ago Tsipras, the PM of Greece, tried to ask Russia for money and threatened to exit EU and side with Russia. This was called Grexit. Last year it was also announced that Turkish Stream would continue on to Europe through Greece. This was a big leg-up for Greece, and Tsipras was seen at many Russian international events, smiling.
Traditionally, for many years Russian-Greek relations have been top notch. For various reasons: Russia liberated Greece from the Ottoman yoke and they seemed grateful; Russia and Greece are sharing the same Orthodox faith; there has been an emotional affinity.
Then, very suddenly Russia-Greece relations hit a strange snag several months ago, seemingly for no reason.
Despite that snag, Russians, with their usual hopefulness, planned to turn the relations around soon. A couple of months ago, Russia was also the first to help Greece with recent fires by sending professional rescuers, helicopters and tech to the devastated Greece. But instead of a thank you (which shocked Russians), Russia got a stonewalled silence when it came to choosing sides in the Ukraine religious schism situation.
HOW’S THAT POSSIBLE? Why such sudden change in Greece’s behavior? What caused it? You may think I sound like a broken record when I tell you that it’s all because of the US. Some may even roll their eyes.
Ah, but I have direct proof. We don’t even need to know all the details of the situation. All we need to know is one fact only.
WHO IS THE CURRENT US AMBASSADOR TO GREECE?
‘Geoffrey Pyatt is the New US Ambassador to Greece. US Ambassador to Greece David D. Pearce is being replaced by Geoffrey R. Pyatt, a former US Ambassador to Ukraine. The USState Department has chosen an experienced and firm diplomat as the next American Ambassador to Greece. May 6, 2016.’
Who is Geoffrey Pyatt?
It is the same man who successfully subverted Ukraine and organized, along with Victoria Nuland, the Kiev Maidan!
Geoffrey Pyatt, US ambassador to Ukraine, holds the #UnitedForUkraine banner (tall man on left), together with the Kiev US embassy staff, during the Kiev Maidan, which is a direct interference in the affairs of another country!
Pics 2-3: Geoffrey Pyatt and Victoria Nuland giving out the infamous ‘cookies’ and burgers on Kiev Maidan, 2014
After Pyatt successfully subverted Ukraine they sent him to another hot spot, aka, another Russia-friendly country and Russia’s KEY ally in Europe! In other words, to Greece.
What’s happening in Greece today, due to the US interference, is directly connected to the global Orthodox religious schism, which may result in the global religious war, and which is a direct stab at Russia. This stab, for which Ukraine is being used yet again, is extremely dangerous and very significant, even for those of us who aren’t religious or Russian Orthodox.
(I explained in Earth Shift Report 22 what Orthodox schism, and a potential global religious war, may mean.)
It is a stab directly into the heart of the Russian identity. It is a direct attempt to sabotage and destroy the Russian World form within, therefore, attempting to destroy Russia the Great Balancer!
Orthodox Schism> Sorry to say, the meddling of the US has gotten out of control. The situation is bizarre and completely illegal. It basically is a hostile takeover, with the idea to weaken and dismember Russia and Ukraine further. As of now, 11 out of 15 independent Orthodox churches (if we count the Moscow Patriarchy), and various divisions of the church, said no to Ukraine’s autocephaly and church independence.
Soon we’ll know how much the US can twist arms and how far they are prepare to go. My prediction: unfortunately, all the way…
That was a year ago: Putin treated like king (or emperor) at the Greek Orthodox monastery, while on a trip to Greece. That Golden throne of sorts in which he stands (one must stand in the Orthodox church during a service) was reserved millennium ago for Byzantium Emperors. Putin was blessed for his future word and deeds to benefit humanity, by the Greek monks.
The so-called ‘Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew’, whose very tiny, comprised of only a few thousand believers flock is located in the Phanar (Fener) quarter of Istanbul, Turkey. Bartholomew, a Greek by nationality, is Turkish citizen, and he once served in the Turkish army.
Bartholomew recently made an announcement that Ukrainian church will receive the autocephaly (independence) and separate from the Moscow Patriarchy very soon.
This announcement is already being compared to the Great Christian Schism of 1054, when Christianity split into Orthodox and Catholic.
The consequences facing Ukraine are also being compared to the St. Bartholomew Day’s Massacre in France, and it is noted that the Constantinople Patriarch’s name isn’t Bartholomewby accident .
It is also said that the Constantinople Patriarch has no authority to interfere into the affairs of the Russian Church in Ukraine. He isn’t the Pope and the structure of the Orthodox church is very different. There is no formal head, but 15 independent churches, which decide their affairs collectively.
Out of 15 independent Orthodox Churches 11 (including Russian) are against the schism and against autocephaly for Ukraine. Greece turned out to be one of the four churches who said ‘yes’, or are silent. this was so unexpected that only one conclusion can be made: the US fingerprints are all over it!
As I wrote in ESR22, Russia is working tirelessly on all levels to stop the schism and to improve relations with Greece. The US does everything to continue souring them.
To illustrate the magnitude of the problem, here are some stats:
There are 300 million Orthodox believers in the world. One half of these, 150 million, are members of the Russian Orthodox Church (Correct Russian name: Pravoslavnaya Church).
The influence of the Russian Church and Russian Patriarch is such that when the Pope needs to meet with an Orthodox Patriarch, he meets with the Russian Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, not with the nominal ‘head’ of the church, Bartholomew of Istanbul.
Patriarch Kirill has proven to be a skilled leader and wise politician. He managed, for instance, to turn around Russia’s relations with Bulgaria. I also was a witness to how wisely he handled one controversial insider situation among the monks at one Russian monastery. He presides over the Moscow Patriarchy, which is a state within several different states, and manages to balance out the many issues and ambitions. He also calibrates highly, a big, big plus. Unlike Bartholomew, and many other leaders of various churches and organized religions, I might add.
Patriarch Kirill of Moscow
Patriarch Kirill and Putin
This is what’s making Bartholomew so jealous, and violently so. He is ready to generate a global religious war and split the church, so he would become the new ‘orthodox pope’ to all kinds of rebels and defectors.
Bartholomew was advised by many not to do so, but in the end he succumbed to the sins of jealousy and greed.
Do you know what the defining problem is? It’s: MONEY. The Constantinople patriarch is severely strapped for cash. And the US can bribe very effectively.
In the past, Russia saved the Constantinople patriarch more than once from bankruptcy, giving him money throughout the years.
But lately, the US and Canada gave lots of Greek Orthodox churches on their territory to the Constantinople patriarchy, and that’s who pays his bills nowadays. The end result is: US/Canada dictate the policies of The nominal Constantinople patriarchy.
The proof is on the surface: Bartholomew announced that he is sending two envoys to Kiev, one from the US and another from Canada. This ‘dynamic schism duo’ is supposed to prepare Ukraine for autocephaly. Both are originally FROM WESTERN UKRAINE. This in itself speaks volumes, as this is from where the ukro-nazism and Bandera fascism spread all over Ukraine. The one from the US is actually an ex-US State Dept employee, who also was first a Catholic or Protestant, but for some reason felt the urge to switch to Orthodox Christianity, probably because State Dept decided it would look better on his resume, what with his mission to create religious schism.
It’s being openly said in Russia that the Constantinople patriarch took American money, LOTS of it, and this accounts for his illegal move. This US money sweetens Bartholomew’s jealousy and resentment against the Russian patriarch, who’s got both power and money.
Generally, this schism may be a good wakeup call in the end. There may be a silver lining in that it’ll allow people to look with a more critical eye at Christianity and organized religion. This may also be a wakeup call for all the Russian culture / Russian world people, regardless of where they live. There is an all out war declared against Russia. This new anti-Russian move may remind all those who consider themselves a part of the Russian World to unite and consolidate, regardless of their religion.
That said, we should always treat the feelings of religious people with utmost respect, as faith and spirituality are very delicate matters of the soul, and should not be trampled on.
But make no mistake: those who are doing it aren’t about religion and they don’t care about the feelings of the religious people. They are cold-blooded predators who only want one thing: the tearing apart of the Slavic world and the destruction of Russia.
The fact that there is an all out war against Russia is being now recognized even by the most pro-West and Russophobic Russian liberals. Examples: recent statements by well-known neo-liberals Sytin and Nadezhdin.
Nadezhdin was a close ally of Yeltsin in the ’90s and a big part of the ’90s ‘reforms.’ He has recently been saying at Vladimir Soloviev shows that Russia needs to protect herself better and that US along with Ukraine are playing a dangerous game. He had some stronger words, too. But Nadezhdin at least loves his country, Russia, however strangely he expresses it most of the time.
There is a much more striking example. Meet Sytin, a self-proclaimed Russian Russophobe, who lives in Moscow with his Ukrainian (also Russophobic) wife. In a recent show with Soloviev, when Skripal hoax and new anti-Russian sanctions were discussed, he began with this opening remark (I’m rephrasing): I am not for Russia, and I am not a patriot in any shape or form. So, as an unbiased outsider, I am telling you all: THERE IS AN ALL OUT WAR THAT HAS BEEN DECLARED AGAINST RUSSIA, AND UNLESS YOU WAKE UP, YOU’LL BE OBLITERATED.
CONCLUSION: what’s happening is so blatant that it’s beginning to become evident even for some of the blind Russian neolibs and Russophobes. As we see, even those who cannot be accused of any support for Putin, and even those who openly or secretly hate Russia, are beginning to see what the West is doing! That is, if they have a modicum of honesty and honor. This applies to both Russians and non-Russians.
If they don’t, you’ll see them continue trying to destroy Russia, and continue lying about Russia. This will be your litmus test going forward: if they continue lying and blaming Russia for all mortal sins, this is a sure sign they are completely dishonest and sold-out. This is how you know whether to trust a specific organization, news outlet, book, politician or leader of a country, or not.
P.S. As we see, not much has changed in the US since Obama.

I received the intel from some countries that the pressure on them was tremendous to toe the ‘Transatlantic’ line. Bulgarian president received huge personal pressure from the head of the EU Donald Tusk (who is from Poland). But Russian Patriarch Kirill’s recent visit made such an impression on Bulgarians that it appears to have made them courageous enough (which is unusual) to withstand pressure and refuse the expulsion of Russian diplomats. Recall how Bulgaria had caved in and blocked the lucrative South Stream despite its own national interests, just because McCain said so. Several other EU countries said no as well, most notable being Austria, whose young new president just visited Putin in Moscow. Austria has been pretty consistent in its message of balance and neutrality.
Of course, Greece and Cyprus, as well as Slovakia, also said no. Portugal and several other EU countries – same. Again, the pressure and arm-twisting was tremendous, as also is confirmed from Portugal. This pressure may continue.
Turkey and Israel are other notable countries to say no. The pressure was applied by US and UK even against African countries, some of which came out with indignation and criticism against UK/US and their pressure. Some also came out in defense of Russia. China had very harsh criticism against US/UK anti-Russian actions.
Russian FM Sergey Lavrov revealed that some EU countries (he didn’t specify which) whispered apologies to him after having announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats, saying they were forced to do so.
The pack is toeing the line for the most part, as we see. However, the cracks are showing.
From Vesti: The EU countries and their allies fell victim to a brutal attack from the UK with the support of the US. Continental Europe was required to expel Russian diplomats in solidarity with London. The Europeans who didn’t receive any proof of Russia’s guilt in the Skripals’ poisoning case had to just trust Theresa May and Boris Johnson, and expel the diplomats. In this sense, Europe would be pro-Britain.
It wasn’t my first choice to bring up such subject before the weekend. But Macedonia is boiling over. I believe important and volatile events are taking place in the countries that used to be parts of the former Yugoslavia, and people should know about them. My forecast is that the situation in the Balkans will continue heating up.
There are objective reasons for that: 1. A large number of people in the former Yugoslavia feel duped and they want to right the historic wrongs that were forced on them by the West; 2. The Balkans have historically been a very volatile and controversial region; it’ll continue being so during this Earth Shift.
The Balkans and former Yugoslavia are usually overlooked, silenced or completely misrepresented in the West; therefore I feel the need to explain what is happening.
A did a video about attempted color revolution in Macedonia – see more at the bottom. It took place (oh, surprise!) when then president of Macedonia Gruevski was visiting Russia and talking cooperation with Putin. The driving force of the color revolution was the Muslim Albanian minority. Notably, some of the color revolution participants resided in Macedonia, but, per reports, thousands of trained foreign agents were infiltrated through the Kosovo and Albania border. As a consequence, then president of Macedonia resigned – apparently after blackmail and life threats. New government was elected, which gave more seats to Albanians and fewer to the core ethnicities of Macedonians and Serbs, who are Orthodox Christians. The new government has been very subdued and ‘suddenly’ all talk of any cooperation with Russia stopped.
It has to be noted that Russia is a natural trade and cultural partner for Macedonia, as well as neighboring Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and other countries of the region. There is profound and well-cherished cultural, linguistic and religious closeness. (As a side note: remember, I did a couple of articles on FT about Bulgaria and Slovenia and how they feel about Russia). There is a strong mutual affinity between Russia and all of these countries. Same goes for Greece and Cyprus. The only problem, Russia does not share a border with the Balkans region.
Because there is such mutual affinity and strong desire to be closer to Russia, the West (US/EU) has made it its mission to sabotage any such attempts and has done absolutely everything in their power to prevent meaningful and productive relations between Russia and the Balkans. But the pull remains strong. Therefore, US/EU continue sabotaging it every step of the way.
***Some corrections to the map of the Balkans above – the map was found on the internet. Slovenia was also a part of Yugoslavia, it is technically a part of the Balkans, and although Catholic, certainly an integral part of the South-Slavic world. Slovenia’s break-up with Serbia in the ’90s was the only peaceful and orderly, except Macedonia. Also, Greece and the European part of Turkey are part of the Balkans.
Macedonia borders both Albania and the illegally torn from Serbia Kosovo. Kosovo is a historic, ancestral Serbian land. However, in the past 50-100 years or so, slowly, more and more Albanians seeped across the border and settled in Kosovo, until they constituted a large minority, and after having unseated most native Serbs, a majority. This allowed Albanians to overtake Kosovo and claim it as their land.
Kosovo Albanians have been used in this conflict as patsies and as a thorn in Serbia’s side (much like today’s ukro-nazi Ukraine has been designed to be a thorn in Russia’s side). By extension, the Kosovo terrorism threat and instability also hurts Macedonia and Montenegro. Every time either of the three former Yogoslav remnants tries to ‘misbehave’ such as get closer to Russia, the strings are pulled and a violent coup, color revolution, civil war, economic/political blackmail and threats against leaders take place.
The driving force behind Kosovo being torn from Serbia and recognized as independent state were Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton. Along with them – the usual suspects, such as senator McCain and the majority of both democrats and republicans in the USA. EU wasn’t far behind. In fact, everything was done by the collective West to create permanent hostility and embed a profoundly unresolved conflict in the region. All this was necessary to weaken Serbia, and by extension, Russia.
During the Yugoslav wars of the ’90s, taking advantage of the fact that Russia was at her weakest and Serbia committed a lot of errors, EU and US broke up Yugoslavia, but didn’t stop at that. They wanted to break up what was left of core Serbia as well. They largely succeeded: first the war crimes committed against Serbs were silenced and Serbian government and population were vilified. Then Kosovo was declared an independent state, immediately recognized by EU and US, but still unrecognized by many countries, including Russia and Serbia. Later in 2006, Chernogoria (Montenegro) was also torn away from the weakened Serbia.
Macedonia, one of the fall-out tiny republics formed in 1993 as a result of the breakup of Yugoslavia and the dismemberment of Serbia, is ethnically, linguistically and culturally an Orthodox, Slavic country, very close to both Serbs and Bulgarians.
We are now observing what happens to a small place such as Macedonia, which isn’t designed to function as a separate state. Every small piece torn from the whole weakens the whole along with all of the breakaway parts. Macedonians, who were lured away from Serbia by the promise of a wonderful life as part of the EU (which, incidentally, never happened) are now reaping the consequences of a bad decision.
In the past 20-30 years the Albanian minority in the country grew from single digits to 25-30 percent. When this minority became large enough, it began demanding more and more political power. Lately, the Albanian minority demanded the post of the head of the government. The current president, whose last name is Ivanov (can’t get any more Russian/Slavic) refused to cave in to Albanians’ pressure.
You may ask, what pressure if they are a minority? The problem is, as I explained above, Albanians enjoy a wholesale support of Brussels, Merkel and US. This emboldens them to demand more than they should. They know that the entire force of the EU/USA/NATO is behind them. This, sadly, yet again reminds me of the behavior of the Kiev junta, who go around EU and US demanding more sanctions, tough rhetoric against and public spanking of Russia – and they get indulged by both EU and US! Why? Because you’ve got to throw the bones to your chosen agents so they continue performing the dirty work.
Much like the Kiev junta against Russia, Crimea and Donbass, Kosovo and Albanians are used by the EU and US as a ram in the Balkans. Kosovo is a bonified terrorist state, specializing in drug, weapons and organ trafficking. Kosovo houses Camp Bondsteel, the USA’s largest military base abroad. It also specializes in training radical Islamists for terrorist acts in Europe.
Albanians, some of whom have fallen under the influence of radical Islamists and ISIS, are dangled in front of Macedonian and other governments in the region as a constant threat, should they make one wrong move. The sad fact is, Macedonians have become hostages in their own country.
The present crisis arose when ethnic Albanian was elected as speaker of the parliament, bypassing all legal procedures. It appears the votes were rigged and/or not counted. It was so obvious that the revolution began and people stormed the parliament. As of now, Macedonian parliament is occupied by protesters.
April 28, 2017, Macedonian parliament stormed by protesters:
The illegality of his election notwithstanding, EU rushed to recognize the Albanian speaker of Macedonian parliament; EU’s FM Federica Mogherini came out immediately in his support. The EU also expressed an ‘outrage’ over the protesters actions. Where was EU’s outrage when the 2014 bloody color revolution and parliament storming took place in Ukraine?
Macedonia has been boiling over for months. Similar mass protests have been happening in Montenegro. Serbia is also balancing on the brink. All of these small countries are being dragged into the EU and NATO, against the will of their populations. In fact, these countries present no value to either the EU or NATO. There is no big economy or strategic assets to be had there. The only asset is the natural affinity with Russia. In the minds of the dark forces ruling the West, this ancient affinity and this ancestral memory must be destroyed at all cost. What is happening in the Balkans is the mirror image of the Russia-Ukraine situation, albeit on a smaller scale.
The breakup of Yugoslavia was a terrible mistake. It’s much easier to destroy several small countries than one large. The people are discovering this the hard way. So far meek and subtle, I detect an underlying desire of some of the former Yugoslavia countries to re-unite. There is also a desire to be closer to Russia; after all, some in the Balkans consider Russia their Mother.

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 (written report)
Support Lada’s work: DONATE
This is a new developing trend to keep in mind for all my readers!
I first predicted this trend in 2012, in my article about EU and French Elections.
March 9, 2016 BREAKING NEWS!
Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia shut borders, closing Balkan route for migrants.
Recently, the so-called Visegrad Group of four E. European countries (Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary) resolved to invest in a fence, closing off Macedonia border to the uncontrolled migrant inflow. After that Austria invited the above countries, plus the Balkans states, to a conference, during which joint measures of Central/East European countries were agreed upon. This conference took place over the objections of Merkel and Germany. Austria purposefully excluded Germany and Greece, the two other countries in the region most impacted. This was a serious sign of how far the fracturing of the EU had gone.
Today’s breaking news, the coordinated action of four Balkans countries to shut down borders to migrant and refugee inflow, is the result of the Austrian deal.
This, incidentally, leaves Greece in the cold, to cope alone with hundreds of thousands of refugees that are already there and that are still trying to get in.
What is happening is the result of the EU actions of allowing the uncontrolled flow of refugees through Europe. Having seen that EU doesn’t bother acting on behalf of its citizens, certain countries had no choice but to take initiative into their own hands. Again, this is a confirmation of how ineffectual the EU construct is in a crisis.
As predicted on April 28, 2012
Quote from my 2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone:
“Some change to the emigration policy from the poor countries is coming, which is a big problem in many European countries, as well as in Russia. The European countries will attempt to coordinate their emigration policies and certain border controls will be introduced very soon. But the emigration mess will take a very long time to sort out.”
Also read related (Dec. 7, 2015): Per My 2012 Prediction! French Elections and the Rise of Marine le Pen and National Front
Another related prediction from 2014! My readers may recall what I said about Ukraine back then: Ukraine will never be admitted to the EU, visa free travel to the EU for Ukrainians will remain just a dream.
Third related prediction of which I talked in my Turkey-bound Earth Shift Reports and articles from 2015: Turkey will NOT be admitted in the EU, visa-free regime between EU and Turkey will never happen.
All these are being confirmed.
DEVELOPING GLOBAL TREND!
END TO LIBERAL OPEN DOORS POLICY and STRICTER BORDER CONTROLS are coming! This especially impacts two places with formerly extremely open and liberal border crossing policies: these are EU/Europe and Russia. This is the full list of the border tightening on the planet:
EU, and Europe as a whole, including UK – happening now and will intensify.
What is especially remarkable about this specific border restriction in the EU is the fact that it’s not the securing of the outer borders of the EU in general we are talking about. It’s the case of the necessity-based alliances between neighbors, when everyone ‘saves themselves’ the way they can. EU has proven to be an ineffectual construct and its reputation is declining, especially among countries most effected by the refugee crisis.
I was recently asked when to expect Brexit and will any other countries try to exit the EU soon. I will do a full prediction on that later this year. But I’ll say now that this border tightening is the first step in the direction of the reformatting of the EU.
Russia and all of post-Soviet space, including Central Asia – happening now and will intensify.
This applies to the outer borders of most of the post-Soviet space, due to the threat of ISIS terrorist infiltration. After the USSR collapse, Russia stopped investing in border patrols of most of the newly independent former republics. Some of these republics neglected proper border service. Russia still has agreements to help out with some of the former republics, such as Armenia, Belarus and Tajikistan. Agreements with most ex-republics will intensify, including Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, as the threat of Islamist and ukro-nazi extremism infiltration continues being on the rise.
At the same time, Russia will also have no choice but to additionally secure her own borders with former republics, which were, until recently, extremely open. Russian borders will also be secured when it comes to the Middle East and Asia. This already happened with Turkey, with which Russia had visa-free regime till 2015. Border tightening is happening with Ukraine as well.
Stricter border controls will be introduced due to the Islamist and ukro-nazi extremism risk.
Additionally impacted: USA, Canada, Australia – happening, or starting to happen, now; will intensify.
Soon, and certainly before the end of this decade, stricter border controls may be introduced in various countries of Asia and S. America.
The main reasons for the border tightening trend:
- risk of Islamist and fascist/ukro-nazi extremism
- attempt to stop uncontrolled infiltration of sleeper terrorist cells
- attempt to curb uncontrolled migration from poor countries, as the open borders are used against EU and Russia by third parties
- this will also be used increasingly as an excuse to control own population in the West, especially in the US; privacy concerns will grow

I just thought this episode was so telling.
The Evil Empire in action… again. Greek government says US has been putting pressure on them to block Russian Syria-bound aid planes from flying through Greek airspace. Greece refused.
According to the US, Russia ‘is stepping up its aid to Syrian government and that’s DESTABILIZING and counterproductive’!! In the US opinion it’s so much more productive to bomb…
All this is rich coming from the country that has for years blatantly disregarded international law to destabilize the entire Middle East, and to blow up Ukraine; who IS STEPPING UP its military aid to the oppressive nazi regime in Kiev in order to support anti-Russia they have created on Russian borders.
That’s rich coming from the country that did everything to weaken and destabilize both Russian and EU economies via arm-twisting, anti-Russian sanctions and attacks on the ruble and EU bonds.
That’s just way too rich coming from the country that created and trained Al Qaeda and because of whose actions the Al Qaeda successor ISIL, whom Syrian government forces are fighting, exists in the first place.

ISIL (ISIS) Destroys Priceless Cultural Heritage. Refugee Invasion of Europe. Middle East Predictions
The contents of the first video below is chilling. To me, the most gruesome part is the senseless and brutal destruction of local and worldwide heritage that IS (ISIL/ISIS) brings with them. They already destroyed the ancient cities of Palmyra and Nimrod. Some of the cities mercilessly destroyed and looted to the bone are UNESCO World Heritage sites, whose museums house priceless historic treasures of global significance.
But note what kind of cars and SUVs these armed to their teeth thugs are driving!
We all know who created these forces, deliberately, or just out of sheer stupidity: those who invaded and bombed Afghanistan and Iraq, who later destroyed Libya and who now is trying to destroy Syria. Those who in the ’70s trained Al Qaeda and Taliban to escalate tensions and lure the USSR into Afghanistan. Al Qaeda and others morphed into the so-called Islamic State (IS, aka ISIL), also financed and protected by the same Western forces.
Now we all have to pay the price for what they have done…
MIDDLE EAST PREDICTIONS
To answer a recent remark/question by a reader, whether the Middle East is calming down and the geopolitical battleground is being moved to the Black Sea area.
Can’t say anything comforting, sorry.
Yes, the geopolitical ground zero is spreading to the entire Black Sea – Eastern Mediterranean area, but there is no calming down of the Middle East at all. I predict further escalation of the Middle East tensions and further destructions and spreading of IS. We are nowhere near the end. The situation in the Middle East will continue spiraling out of control and it will be very difficult to calm it down for years. There are too many unresolved issues that will continue coming up as more and more truth and injustices are revealed. The injustices and truth have been suppressed in the Middle East for too long. The whole huge region is simply sizzling and cooking in controversy and painfully bleeding sores. It is very far from the end – it’s just the beginning.
It’ll only end after the very deep-seated internal problems of the Middle East have been resolved.
People of the no man’s land:
One of the problems is the refugee crisis, when hundreds of thousands from Syria, Libya and other countries of the Middle East try to reach EU. The most recent scandal is on the border of Greece and Macedonia. After thousands of refugees attempted to cross by trains from Greece to Macedonia as the most convenient bridge to the rest of the EU, Macedonia deployed army and police to the border to prevent that (so much for the EU policy of open borders). Similar situation recently happened at the la Manche tunnel connecting UK and France.
Presently, crowds of refugees are camping out on the border between Greece and Macedonia. Videos:
We are at a point when EU has no idea how to handle the crisis they helped generate.
The heads of the EU are proposing the following. Why not relocate 100,000 of no man’s land refugees from Greece to…. Ukraine. I’m not kidding, this is the official proposal on the table!
These refugees from Africa are hard-working people, say the authors of the proposal. There are many abandoned or decaying villages in central and western Ukraine. Why not resettle these refugees in those villages, they will rebuild the villages and work the land. Everyone will be happy. Ukraine is trying to join EU, why don’t they start showing their loyalty by helping out and alleviating the EU burden. We are talking about Ukraine here, the country in pre-default state and in the middle of a civil war!
Quantum Calibrations of Major Events: Iran Deal, SCO/BRICS Summit, Russian Sanctions, Ukraine, Armenia and Greece
This post is a logical extension of my latest article: Color Revolutions: Who and Why Takes Advantage of Border Disputes and Historic Resentments?
In the article, I suggested that my readers should use my Quantum Calibrations of Consciousness System, as described in the videos below. This system is extremely helpful for determining the truth or falsehood of any action by any country, or for determining a calibration (energy and intension) of any event in history. This system is accurate both for personal and global, large-scale, usage. I calibrate geopolitical issues in the examples below. But just as successfully, I can use my system for personal issues, whether internal or external.
The key is to ask correct question, so that calibration would deliver an accurate answer.
My Quantum Calibrations scale is based in part on Dr. David Hawkins Power vs. Force Scale of Consciousness, but it goes much further and deeper. It works together with my Chi Kinesiology – the system I use for calibrating.
The videos below will give you a comprehensive initial overview of the system:
I thought it would be helpful for my readers if I posted an illustration of how calibrations work, complete with telling examples. This is the first time I am actually calibrating these events. It will be fascinating to see how it will all come out.
It’s a double-blind experiment: I just type out a statement and calibrate the issue at hand live, then type in a numeric value of the answer received, adding my interpretation. I don’t ‘think’ about it. This isn’t about random thinking. I focus and produce the result. Some call it channeling. This is the function of the organized and focused cosmic mind, not the ever-doubtful human mind.
The examples used in this experiment are based on the questions and issues posed in the aforementioned article. Because the Quantum Scale is a relative (comparative) numeric scale, it’s easy to see where each action, event, person, or object falls relative to other events, persons and objects, therefore, allowing us to interpret and understand deeper the underlying motivations and consequences of each occurrence.
In other words, calibrations serve as quantum tool for getting to the very core of the issue and for extracting the real truth.
Below, you’ll see me provide a statement, its numeric value calibration, as well as sometimes also the Chi numeric level (underlying energy level) of the situation/event. You will also see me provide additional interpretations.
Let’s have some examples of quantum calibrations, shall we!
(To understand the scale and interpretations, please first watch videos linked above)
Calibrating the truth of a statement (What is the truth behind…):
Here, we will calibrate official positions of governments:
The position of the Kiev junta government in regards to Donbass: 10 (near death). In other words, practically no truth at all. They simply want Donbass dead, including people and infrastructure. However, when someone is on that level (be it individual or state), they will always end badly. Wishing death on someone else eventually bounces back to cause death and destruction of the perpetrator (per my PREDICTIONS, we won’t have to wait more than 2-3 years for that to happen).
Russia’s position towards supporting Donbass through humanitarian aid and refugee help: 980 (enlightenment, near absolute truth). No surprise. The generosity is obvious.
Russia’s position towards Ukraine in general: 185 (pride). While below the minimum positive calibration of 200 (courage), PRIDE is the first calibration level where confrontation isn’t desired and peace is a prerogative. Therefore, while Russia is critical of Ukraine’s behavior, considering Ukraine basically ungrateful and what is going on there deplorable, the calibration clearly shows that Russia definitely doesn’t want confrontation with Ukraine, trying to resolve everything peacefully.
But let’s see what US, EU and Ukraine positions on Russia are:
Ukraine’s position towards Russia: 1 (practically the level of death). Death = 0 in the Quantum Scale. In other words, they want Russia dead. Chilling, isn’t it?
EU’s (average for all of EU) position towards Russia: 40 (guilt). Guilt is a very debilitating, paralyzing feeling. In the video above I give examples of how some Christians experience the feeling of guilt, which makes them subdued, resentful and debilitated. Guilt, along with shame (calibration 20) are the two highest suicide producers among people. The judgement is so clouded that people simply cannot find the right solutions to problems even if such solutions stare them in the eye.
USA’s position on Russia: 6 (near death). Surprise to anyone that US wants Russia dead?…
Germany’s position towards Russia: 45 (guilt)
Greece’s position towards Russia: 298 (neutrality). A very high, and truly positive energy, but not high enough energy to make active deals happen. By the way, this means, as you’ll see later, that Greece isn’t ready to abandon EU and join Eurasian Union, as some suggested.
Poland’s position towards Russia: 2 (near death). Same as my explanation for Ukraine’s position towards Russia.
Finland’s position towards Russia: 49 (guilt – on the cusp of apathy). Apathy (50-74) is the level of the desperately poor and destitute in Calcutta. It is also the level of absolute and total disregard of another’s position and needs. Just below that (30-49) is a very low and unpleasant calibration of guilt. Guilt is a very stifling energy and it can be very destructive.
Russia’s position towards EU: 180 (pride). Same as my explanation for Russia’s position towards Ukraine.
EU position on Donbass: 10 (shame, near death)
US position on Donbass: 4 (almost death) So… Is it possible that just like Ukraine, US wants Donbass dead?…
The truth of the Kiev junta statement that Ukraine is separate from Russia, while common history is denied: 0 (death). This means that there is zero truth to this statement.
The truth of the statement that Russians and Ukrainians are one people: 995 (high enlightenment), or absolute truth! (the value of 1000 is the top of the human 3D scale)
The truth behind Poroshenko’s insistence that there are 200,000 (they have grown from 8,000 just recently) Russian troops that invaded Donbass: 4 (near death). Obviously, no truth to this statement.
Russia’s position re. re-establishing peace in Ukraine and ending civil war calibrates at: 280 (neutrality). A very nice and positive calibration. Russia essentially is wishing Ukraine well and wants to help out in a detached way, keeping distance and not willing to get deeper into the Ukraine mess. Recall how many times I wrote that both Ukraine/Poland and US are doing everything to drag Russia deeper by making them send the troops.
EU’s position on Ukraine conflict: 10 (shame, near death). This means that EU’s position is borderline absolute falsehood.
Deep within, how EU feels about their role in the conflict in Ukraine: 85 (grief). EU isn’t admitting it, but they are deeply unhappy and depressed about the role they played in Ukraine conflict. However, they feel desperately stuck in the situation, seeing no way out.
USA’s position on Ukraine: 4 (near death). This is what US brings to Ukraine!
Now, let’s calibrate some of the recent geopolitical events
Here we are calibrating the cosmic consciousness level of the event. I also added the Chi level calibration in a few cases. Chi levels in my system signify the intrinsic energy levels manifest in our Earthly 3D reality; it is a practical level of energy available to each situation.
The calibration below will help us understand who and why organized these events, the truth or falsehood of each event; what each event wants to achieve and the prediction for the consequences.
Kiev maidan: 4 (near death). Obviously, that’s what it achieved – the ongoing destruction of a republic that was once the richest per capita in the Soviet Union, having been built-up by Russians.
Crimean referendum: 295 (neutrality); Chi: 580 (joy/creation). The people wanted to live and let live; by voting for a better life outside of the destructive ukro-nazi Ukraine, they didn’t want to fight; they were opting out. The underlying Chi is spectacularly high: these people went to vote in order to create a better future for themselves and their children. For 23 years they dreamed of the day they would be re-united with Russia, and the referendum became the day of true joy for them.
The act of Crimea’s re-unification with Russia: 980 (high enlightenment – an almost absolute truth). Wow, this is much higher than I anticipated! I never took a moment to actually physically calibrate any of this before. What can I say – it was the enlightened decision on Putin’s part and on the part of the people and government of Crimea and Russia. Clearly, that’s where Crimea belongs.
Greek position re. EU debt: 180 (pride); Chi 150 (anger)
Tsipras personal position on debt negotiations: 180 (pride); Chi 150 (anger). Same exact calibration as his country in general. This means that Tsipras behavior is in line with how his country feels. Anger about the terms is prevalent in Greece, hence the anger energy. Deep down Greeks hate the EU and their stranded situation, which, as I predicted, would eventually lead to their exiting the EU. However, for now they have no choice but to negotiate. Pride is below the minimum positive calibration of 200 (courage), but it is the first peace-seeking calibration due to self-preservation. Greece is trying to find a compromise and resolve the debt situation without exiting the EU (but only for now – recall my prediction). I actually never calibrated this issue before, so I note that it confirms what I predicted about the Grexit timeline in my recent articles.
But look how differently US/EU feel about Greece!
EU position re. Greece: 80 – it rose to 85 in the last couple of days (grief/desperation/denial/no way out). Not a good calibration to have while trying to negotiate. Any deals they make with Greece won’t last too long.
US position re. Greece: 45 (guilt). They feel Greece is guilty of all mortal sins and don’t want IMF/EU to compromise with Greece. Recall that Greece is also leaning to Russia and participates in Turkish Stream. US wants Greece punished.
Attempted electric maidan in Armenia: 85 (angry grief/desperation). People felt they had no say in how much they would be charged tomorrow, desperate because of their low-income levels. However, private energy companies geared towards profit felt equally desperate and trapped due to large investments into the infrastructure and expenses they would never recoup. The government felt equally trapped between the two ‘rights.’
Latest settlement in Armenia, which defused electric maidan through temporary subsidies and investigation calibrates at: 185 (pride). Better than nothing – this means that everyone is trying to find a compromise and doesn’t want escalation out of self-preservation.
Finland denying visas to Sergey Naryshkin and Russian delegation to OSCE: 40 (guilt); Chi: 0 (death) – Very, very bad calibration. This will cause misunderstandings and mutual relations problems in the short to mid-term between Russia and Finland, to be resolved only when Finland changes its position towards Russia; when Finland’s energy level increases enough to (excuse me) give a damn.
Anti-Russian sanctions: 100 (fear); Chi 80 (grief). This is self-explanatory, I think.
We talked a lot about color revolutions as the technology to divide and conquer. Let’s calibrate color revolution as a phenomenon: 85 (violent grief) Chi 95 (also violent grief). No surprises. Therefore, even when participants of color revolutions honestly believe they are fighting for a better future, they’ll fail to achieve it.
BRICS and SCO Summit that just took place in Ufa, Russia: 410 (reason – a very high calibration); Chi: 295 (neutrality)! Clearly, all those countries that came to Ufa had a positive and forward-looking agenda, including India and Pakistan making peace and getting admitted into SCO as a tandem; Iran attending as SCO candidate; Belarus soon to be admitted to SCO. BRICS are developing a SWIFT alternative system and the BRICS Bank started its work. There were certain criticisms of the BRICS and of certain actions by China by some Russian analysts. This is probably why the summit didn’t calibrate higher than these values.
New Iran deal just reached between Iran and the sextet – Russia, USA, UK, Germany, China and France (plus EU): 410 (reason); Chi of the Iran deal: 480 (humanity)! This is very high for international relations, which often linger on the level of pride, or worse. There is no other way to describe it other than a major breakthrough!

Quantum Calibration Readings have been in the making since last year, when I first started talking about the Scale of Calibrations and Chi Kinesiology. For a long time I was in doubt whether I should get involved in it due to my busy schedule. However, over the past year this idea has kept coming back to me, which means it is the idea whose time has come.
As you can see from the above examples, calibrations can be an incredibly revealing and helpful tool when interpreting global events.
But they are equally – and sometimes more – useful for understanding and interpreting personal events and issues, as well as making important decisions in one’s life.
I find Quantum Calibrations to be a very important and valuable tool, providing answers with astounding accuracy. To help you understand deeper various events happening in your life, and to assist you in making the right decisions for the future, I am finally starting the Quantum Calibrations Reading service on LadaRay.info.
I will be posting several case studies and more details this week and next. Look for the real Quantum Calibration case studies on LadaRay.info under CONSULTATIONS and on dedicated QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS page.
ASK LADA 5:
Was the 1917 Russian Revolution an Early Color Revolution?
Russian Analyst Nikolay Starikov on Armenia Maidan and Greece
My view on Russian politician/analyst Evgeny Fedorov
(All posts in this series appear under CATEGORY: Ask Lada)
In reply to my article: Color Revolutions: Who and Why Takes Advantage of Border Disputes and Historic Resentments?
Ask Lada 5
That’s why I said the color revolution manual hasn’t been changed since the beginning of the 20th century.
However, the real color revolution was the February 1917 coup/revolution that unseated Nikolay II and ended the Russian monarchy. Without those Russian oligarchs, counts, officers and Tsar’s relatives who came out wearing red bands in February, plotting to unseat Nikolay II, the later Bolshevik Revolution wouldn’t have happened. Without the direct British agent Kerensky (proven fact Kerensky himself brags about in his memoirs) and his Temporary Government – Rus.: Vremennoe Previtelstvo – of oligarchs that destroyed what was left of the country’s infrastructure and morale in the short several months between March and October, the Bolshevik Revolution wouldn’t have happened either.
The 1917 Russian Empire situation looked a lot like Ukraine’s today, in other words, total madness – albeit on an incomparably larger scale. The Bolshevik Revolution of November 7, 1917 capitalized on the ensuing mayhem and went much beyond the color revolution goals, in fact breaking out of the mold, and building an alternative social system to rival and balance out the West.
But yes, February and November 1917 were in fact 2 parts of one mega-coup.
This is where Nikolay Starikov, whom I mentioned on several occasions, shines: explaining color revolutions. The geopolitics of the 20th century – through now is his period. Perhaps also 18-19th centuries as well. (He loses me when he goes deeper in history, into areas he doesn’t understand.)
Just posted: great latest video by Starikov where he gives his perspective on Greece and Armenia electric maidan. He echoes and compliments very well from his angle what I have been saying all along on these issues.
Have a listen. Sorry everyone, only have it in Russian, but I hope you can turn on English subtitles on YT.
Generally, Starikov is one of my top recommended Russian geopolitical analysts. Just keep in mind what I said earlier about him in regards to different historic times, plus the fact that he takes an exclusively patriotically-Russian angle on things (don’t blame him), while I prefer to think of the good of the entire Planet Earth.
In this video Starikov also talks about a direct connection between Gorbachev’s ‘treason,’ as he calls it, and the EU formation. I did mention in the above-linked article that I think this view of Gorbachev is overly simplistic.
Starikov makes a compelling case that Gorbachev’s actions, resulting in the break-up of the USSR, set in motion a chain of events culminating in the mushrooming of the EU as we know it today, on the bones of the Soviet Union.
Since we are on the topic of Russian geopolitical analysts: one of my readers, Kostya, also asked my opinion about Evgeny Fedorov and his ‘prediction’ that there is a secret negotiation to replace Putin. My readers do know my rule that I don’t discuss other people’s work or personas, unless I can say something positive, as in the case of Starikov above. I’ll make a quick exception here, since I often get questions about Fedorov’s sensationalistic predictions that never come true.
Here is what I replied to this reader’s question:
I generally don’t listen to Fedorov, as I mentioned on prior occasions. My view of Fedorov is that he is a fear monger and sensationalist. But perhaps he plays the role of the boy who cried wolf, which can be useful, I suppose, to wake up those who are normally asleep. Sadly, some need a dose of his scares he likes throwing around, to keep them alert.
I demonstrated in 2014 how his ‘prediction of the upcoming maidan in St Petersburg’ didn’t materialize, while mine that it wouldn’t happen – did. ‘Nough said.
But some don’t want the truth, preferring sensationalism and tall tales.
That said, as you know, I agree with Fedorov in principle regarding the NWO and UK/US globalist hegemony agenda gone too far.
Added to clarify some questions: I also appreciate Fedorov’s long-standing resistance against and vocal position on the US globalist agenda issues. In a way, he is a hero and a great awakener. But I disagree with his methods and information delivery. As I said, some people may require this type of presentation, which is sad.
Link to the above-referenced post: Prediction: Is Kiev-Style Maidan Possible in St. Petersburg? As we all know, no maidan ever happened in St Pete, in line with what I had said back then.

In response to my latest article Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions,
This morning after the referendum confirms your prediction Lada. I also felt that it would be a NO vote. Disappointed to see that Janos Varoufakis has resigned but perhaps this is a ploy to ameliorate the ire of the EU dictators and banksters and buoy up Tspris’s bargaining position. I am sure Janos will be working on behind the scenes! Thank you Brave Greeks! You have the EU Elites packing it and running everywhere to have meetings to see what they do next. What a joke..not even a game plan! They are so sure of themselves that they cannot see any other possibility but their agenda which is disintegrating before their very eyes and they are still hardline and remorseless. Such pride and arrogance comes before a huge fall…they have just tripped and are about to hit the ground face down.
Greferendum Domino Effect? Revolution Coming? The Future of Europe and Eurasia?
Yes, unfortunately, the resignation of Varoufakis is political maneuvering. I like the guy a lot, he has gumption. But he is too ‘radical’ – read: clear-minded and mission-driven – for EU, which they perceive as lack of compromise. He scares them.
Essentially, EU negotiators demanded that he leaves, citing the impossibility of talking with him. Varoufakis is a very influential and charismatic presence in Greece, and Alexis Tsipras’ strongest ally. After his resignation the immediate EU speculation is that Tsipras won’t survive in power that much longer. I heard a German analyst today predicting that Tsipras government won’t survive for two weeks. Well, EU bureaucrats and banksters are itching to unseat the new Greek government. I wrote at length why that is in:
- Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions
- Putin’s Gambit: Germany To Replace Ukraine as Russian Gas Transiter
However, I don’t believe these people are that easy to unseat. It’s certainly a wishful thinking of some. Greferendum showed what people really think.
That said, Greece can’t avoid talking to the EU because they are running out of cash and banks are on the verge of collapse. Since so far Greece is fully integrated into the EU system, it can’t be helped. None of the measures EU proposes will work, but Greece will have no choice but to prolong the agony, until 1-2 years from now the tight rope will finally snap and Greece will have to leave the EU. As I said in the above-linked articles, Grexit will be linked to the completion of Turkish Stream and other cooperative agreements with Russia.
This is to answer a doubtful comment to the same post by another reader:
Could Grexit happen sooner than 2017? I actually said it would be ‘by 2017,’ which means it could happen in 2016, although doubtful. Sure, there could be accelerating events, which will make the situation fluctuate, but they are not likely to influence the final outcome – and that’s mildly put.
My prediction remains the same (as usual, I don’t deviate from my predictions and they as a rule always come true, including dates and numbers). Sure, I am still only human, but I think my track record speaks for itself.
Unfortunately, some prefer to argue with me about my predictions. It happened in 2012 and 2014. Every time, I simply suggest people wait till the event or outcome predicted takes place.
So far, I don’t recall ever being wrong and those who argue with me being right. The thing is: I don’t look at what MSM says or politicians do – I capture the prevailing quantum (cosmic) energy leading to the event and determine its likelihood on quantum plane, not on 3D plane. But this it a topic for another discussion, which we may have eventually.
Many readers understand what I am talking about when I tell them things like that. However, those few who don’t want to hear about cosmic energy and quantum stuff, preferring only things they can touch and see with their own eyes, I have a solution for you. Simply look at my tangible, for all to see, predictions track record. You can go to PREDICTIONS for that, although the list is incomplete (a more complete and organized version may appear one day, time allowing, on LadaRay.info). Then you can decide who and what you should listen to and believe.
Back to Greece:
EU demands someone they can talk to – a compromise figure. The newly appointed finance minister is just that. He went to school in London, so he knows their mentality. He is also considered a quiet technocrat, as opposed to the flamboyant, politically outspoken charmer, Varoufakis, who rides his motorcycle around Athens and wears a t-shirt to EU meetings. That said, the new finance minister is also a long-time member of Syriza, so don’t expect him to deviate from the party line. He is just a compromise to satisfy EU elites, utterly scandalized by Varoufakis’ unorthodox behavior.
In previous articles/videos, which you can find in the above-referenced links, I explained that Greece will find itself under a long-term attack from US and EU due to its anti-EU revolt, its support for Russia and Turkish Stream. This is just the beginning, so hold on to your seatbelts! Greece has no choice but to maneuver its way between the Scylla and Charybdis of these difficult times, the same way as we all have no choice but to go through the developing Earth Shift.
It’s working out exactly as predicted in Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions and previous vids/articles. For now, Greece will have to compromise with EU and vice versa. This posturing will continue for a year or two, until Grexit and EU exodus by other countries… unless EU changes, which I don’t foresee as they are too tightly integrated into the US-EU political-financial-military matrix.
An illustration of how this matrix works:
Last week, Finland denied visas to Russian Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin and a number of the Russian Duma deputies, basically the top elected politicians in the country. They were scheduled to attend a session of the OSCE in Helsinki. The reason given for the visa denial is that these people are under sanctions due to ‘Russia’s annexation of Crimea.’ The scandal is huge and growing, with many in Russia demanding return sanctions against Finland. Finland, which prides itself in its democracy – again, when it’s convenient – acted illegally. The thing is that Naryshkin and others cannot be banned from attending international forums in any country in their official capacity as Duma speaker and deputies. The ban only applies to their private trips. By banning entire Russian delegation, EU effectively shuts the mouth of those who have a dissenting opinion, so, god forbid, Europeans wouldn’t hear it.
But there is much more to the story. Finland was a part of the Russian Empire for centuries. Finns themselves seceded from Sweden, which they felt mistreated them. They asked for protection by and admission into the Russian Empire. It was accepted and became an autonomous province of the Russian Empire until 1917 revolution. Lenin gave legal independence to Finland as a thank you for giving him asylum when he was hiding from Russian authorities. Just imagine how de-facto independent of the Russian authorities the Finns were if they could hide Lenin on their territory while he was preparing a revolution to overthrow the tsar’s regime, and no one could touch him! There is a deeper story behind that, which I’ll tell some other time.
You decide how to classify Finland after all this, if – apparently, as a sign of gratitude – it first sided with Hitler, when many Finns became fascists and joined the Nazi party. Later, Finland became one of the US/EU forposts from whose territory the clandestine undermining of the USSR and Russia was conducted. Meanwhile, Finland pretended to be a good trading partner for Russia, capitalizing on the lucrative Russian market, while essentially serving as one of the mainstays of Russophobia in the West. Finland often served as an intermediary for other Western countries in Russian trade, due to its favorable geographic position. This lasted until Russia’s return sanctions last year hit Finnish imports to Russia.
Now, under US and EU pressure, Finland denies visas to Russian people’s representatives under the pretext of the Crimean vote for independence and further reunification with Russia. Just consider the double-faced hypocrisy of this step in light of Finland’s own history!
Why did I tell this story? To serve as an illustration of some points and predictions I will make below.
National referendum as the only truly democratic voice of the people:
It all started with Crimea, and before Crimea, with Pridnestrovie. The breakway Pridnestrovie (former part of the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic within the USSR) referendum of 2006 result: 98% voted for full independence from Moldova (Moldavia) and re-integration with Russia. Moldova has never been an independent state since it acquired ‘independence’ from the USSR. Instead, it promptly fell under the Romanian dictate.
Since the beginning, the most developed part of Moldova, Pridnestrovie said no, and seceded. It had more than one referendum, the two latest of which were in 2006 (98% for reunification with Russia) and 2014 snap referendum with the same result – but the paperwork from that referendum was taken away by Moldova officials from the First Deputy PM of Russia Rogozin while he was flying through the capital of Moldova Kishinev (Chisinau)! His plane was detained, too, and he had to take a commercial flight back to Moscow. Yes, it’s that out of control!
The Gagauzia autonomy within Moldova also had a referendum in February 2014, in which 97% voted against EU, for Customs Union and closer ties with Russia. See my video about Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia, explaining much more:
|Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2)
by Lada Ray
(More articles about Moldova, Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia available on this site – to find them, type keywords in ‘Search.’)
Because of the land-locked status of Pridnestrovie, which is now in a very difficult blockade from Ukraine and Moldova sides, with close participation by Romania, Russia was unable to honor the results of that referendum – for now! Soon, I am planning a piece about Pridnestrovie and Odessa, and the important for all of us processes that take place there.
In today’s world, a national referendum is the only fully legal and truly democratic voice of the people on important issues. Meanwhile, the West – US and EU – stubbornly and blindly ignore results of national referendums in places like Pridnestrovie, Crimea and Donbass, demonstrating their utter contempt for the same principles of law and democracy they had been touting as the only principles by which to live. Of course, this was their position when it was convenient for them. The moment the shoe is on another foot – out the window all these principles go.
Hypocrisy? Double standards? Are they simply stupid and don’t understand? Oh no, it’s so much worse! There are pathologically sociopathic liars and criminals in power in the EU and US, who feel their long-standing feeding grounds threatened by the awakening power of the people.
Despite crazy resistance of these dark forces, the referendum movement has no signs of abating. In fact it continues gaining momentum! Greferendum and potential Grexit is already sending shocks through the entire EU system.
Meanwhile in Austria: several days ago, Austrian citizens submitted a petition to exit the EU, with 260,000 signatures. This petition forced the EU exit debate in the Austrian parliament, sending new shockwaves through the already shaken system. Spain, Italy, Portugal and some other countries are watching what’s happening in Greece carefully. There may be attempts to exit by Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Hungary, and possibly others, such as Cyprus ( – not yet). Leftist (Podemos), anti-EU government may come to power in Spain this autumn. A resurgence of popularity of leftist, anti-EU, pro-sovereignty forces is happening in Europe, including Germany itself (Die Linke), where leftist tradition has always been strong, but always suppressed by US/German/EU elites.
Incidentally, these leftist movements are traditionally pro-Russian and anti-American, which opens a completely new, deeper can of worms.
Revolution vs. Evolution. Predictions for the future of Europe and Eurasia
There are only two ways of reforming something that doesn’t work any more. Route number 1: peacefully, through wisdom, course correction and mutual understanding. But for that, you need both sides cooperating. Route number 2: if one side is refusing the see the other side’s point of view – the next step is revolution.
The classic definition of a revolution coined by Vladimir Lenin is: “Revolution is when elites won’t and the masses can’t.” In other words, when elites won’t see the opposing point of view and won’t change, while the people can’t continue living like this.
And that’s the way EU is going. I know some of my readers feel sorry about my predictions that EU will have to split up, at least parts of the EU. They shouldn’t. The EU has become a rotten to the core, subservient to the darkest elements the Anglo-American and globalist bankster elites, destructive force.
If the Union of European states is to be reborn, it has to be a mutually respectful, cooperative union, unlike today’s system, based more on predatory profit, hatred and superiority complex. But even that won’t work long-term.
You all know my position on this, and this is my prediction:
In order to be viable, it has to be a Union of all of Eurasia, not Europe. Eurasia is one continent. (Very long ago, during Vedic times, all of it was called Assia – but that is a fascinating story for a different post, or rather a book!)
Enough warring with each other! It’s time for the people of Eurasia to make peace and cooperate. This is the plan of Russia and China, realised through the New Silk Road and Russian energy deals.
At first, it has to be a free trade zone of what is now some parts of the EU, Russia (with Eurasian Union), China, and probably India and a few other Asian countries. The Middle East (parts of it are a part of Eurasian continent) and other relevant areas will have to join later.
Sure, European states should have their own union of some sort, but not exclusively, and they certainly should not punish and bully their members, like they did with Hungary, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Italy, France and Greece, for joining projects outside their union.
Ironically, it is Germany that is now showing the way by joining projects outside of the EU successfully, such as Nord Stream. But Germany, in the usual divide and conquer manner, doesn’t want others to benefit from similar lucrative projects, actively blocking other countries. Germany’s hand was in part in Ukraine coup – to tear Ukraine from Russia; it’s now trying to prevent Greece’s Turkish Stream participation. Austria and Hungary, which signed up for both South Stream and Turkish Stream, are also unhappy with Germany’s selfish attitude towards Russian gas projects. This possessively imperial behavior generates a growing clash between haves and have-nots in the EU, and soon this clash between Germany and everyone else will be impossible to hide.
Any exclusive union between European states (basically only Western Europe and parts of Central Europe) alone will be stillborn. Why? Because what is today incorrectly considered ‘Europe’ is just a small part of the continent of Europe, and Europe as a continent in reality is a small part of Eurasia. Any limitations will create artificial barriers and stifle mutually beneficial development of all of Eurasia and the entire Planet Earth.
Therefore, there will always be conflict, with some wanting to look east and others west. Western/Central/Eastern Europe will always be torn between siding with US on one hand and with Russia on another.
EU has to abandon its arrogance towards anyone who isn’t as prosperous as they are at this particular point in human development. Just mere 5-10 centuries ago, this wasn’t the case at all. At that time, EU was a poor, warring hell hole, while the Golden Age was taking place in Russia, Middle East, India and China. Europeans have to remember that the reason they are this prosperous is because for the past several centuries they colonized and robbed blind the populations of Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, and lately, the population of Russia and Ukraine.
Things always change in our 3D world. They will change again; in fact, the change – EARTH SHIFT – is happening now.
The present day refugee flood into the EU from Africa, Asia, but especially Middle East, is payback for previous misdeeds. Regardless of all the indignation of Europeans, it’s the universal law of karma at work. This law never fails. As the refrain for my novelette CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians) goes, “Karma can be a beautiful maiden …or a bitch.”
Europeans, as well as Americans, need to humble down very significantly in order to achieve an evolutionary leap to the new era of cooperative and multi-polar world. If they, or their elites elected by the European and American people, refuse to do so, there will be revolution – and it will be devastating.
There is still time to make a more or less peaceful transition, but time is running out.

On video’s image: Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2015 (SPIEF 2015) in St. Petersburg, Russia, June 19, 2015
For those who prefer to read, below is the written version
(the video above contains additional relevant maps and pics)
A Latvian politician and member of Europarliament has told me that he recalls how several years ago any session of the EU-Russia Europarliament Commission would be packed because of the overwhelming interest in doing business with Russia. Everyone understood: that’s where the opportunity was. At the same time, sessions of the US-EU Commission would barely have a few people attending. Those days several years ago now seem to the EU like another lifetime. Events in Ukraine and anti-Russian sanctions changed perceptions and put a visible wedge between Russia and EU – a setback used by the US to continue pushing EU to accept the increase in its military presence, its LNG shale gas and its secret Transatlantic Trade Agreement.
I know what US apologists both sides of the Atlantic will say: it’s the EU people who demand our increased military presence, shale gas and Transatlantic Trade Agreement. I suppose the EU people also demand that NSA wiretap their presidents and business elites, along with every citizen. I suppose the EU people also demand to be robbed blind.
Seemingly, US can celebrate a victory. Seemingly, they have achieved their goals. However, per my 2014 predictions, this victory will be short-lived, followed by a huge reversal.
The top event of last week was the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, yet what happened there went almost unnoticed in the manipulated Western media, busy covering up the new French NSA spying scandal with a fresh dollop of Russia-bashing. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the moment the news that NSA spied on three French presidents broke up, French papers filled with anti-Russian propaganda, blaming Russia for not observing the Minsk peace agreements. Similar thing happened in Germany, where the public is still reeling from last year’s massive NSA spying scandal. Obviously, the news filled with bad Russia and bad Putin, their convenient boogeyman, are meant to distract from the real news.
It should now be clear beyond the shadow of a doubt who controls ALL of the world’s media, except some news outlets in Russia, China and a few other countries. The fact that French and German media immediately jumped to protect their real Transatlantic employer once the scandal against such employer broke out – speaks volumes. The prime directive of the Western MSM is to divert the sheeple’s attention and pull the wool over their eyes every time their puppeteer is in trouble.
What happened in St. Pete was sensational, and therefore, it should have been the stuff of front pages. Instead, it was shyly relegated to the back pages, or avoided altogether.
But at the same time as US and Brussels continued selling their naive populace the stale story of Russia’s isolation – and Russian aggression – a virtual fight over who would become a bigger and better partner for Russian gas transit was taking place in St. Petersburg.
See recent posts:
In light of what’s happening in Greece, what’s especially interesting is this: Greek PM Tsipras neglected his scheduled meeting with EU leaders, in which he was supposed to negotiate his country’s crucial pre-default debt restructuring. Instead, he chose to come to St. Pete, where he signed a $2 bln joint venture for building the Greek leg of Turkish Stream to southeastern Europe.
Nord Stream-2: Analysis and Prediction
Less noticed and very under-the-wraps was another mega-deal: potentially even bigger than Turkish Stream. During the St. Petersburg Forum Germany and Russia agreed to build Nord Stream-2, to deliver gas across the bottom of the Baltic Sea directly to Germany, for further distribution throughout the EU. Nord Stream-1 consisted of two branches and cost 8.5 bln euro. Nord Stream-2 will add two more branches, for a total of four, and will cost 9.9 bln euro.
Nord Stream – Rusian gas goes directly to Germany via Baltic Sea
The new pipeline will go on top of the existing Nord Stream. This means that, due to the same footprint, Nord Stream-2 won’t need to go through a very grueling and lengthy approval process with Euro Commission and deal with objections by all countries bordering the Baltic Sea. With German discipline and profit motivation, expect Nord Stream-2 to be built in record time.
Therefore, while Germany is making all kinds of public anti-Russian noises, it’s quietly making serious strides to fortify and expand business with Russia. However, make no mistake! Russian gas transit to the EU is as much in the realm of politics and geopolitics, as in the realm of business. I will illustrate that below.
Nord Stream-2 capacity will rival the current Ukraine pipeline capacity. Russia already announced that the aging Ukraine pipeline will be eventually phased out due to the political instability and inflexible position of the Ukraine government. In short, Russia won’t be held hostage to the whims of Kiev. Nord Stream-2 agreement means Germany is making a decisive move to take away gas transit business from Ukraine.
This led some to speculate that Germany facilitated the 2014 coup in Kiev on purpose: to create an impossible situation for the Russian gas transit through Ukraine, thus making Russian gas transit business its own. I won’t categorically agree or disagree with this opinion, and here is why. There is some logic to it. Germany and other strong EU economies were always worried about the insecure Ukraine gas route. Taking steps to ensure one’s country’s energy security are natural and expected. Still, at least in part, Germany is not initiating but rather responding to various threats, acting to secure gas supply route and quantities for itself and its close allies in northern and central Europe. Germany, of all countries, is able to use its considerable European pull to secure a fast construction of the new pipeline – and it’s doing it.
Is Germany making big anti-Russian noises to appease and fool the US, while behind the scenes making deals with Russia? Here is what I see: I do think Germany is continuing clumsy attempts to sit on two chairs, playing both Russia and US, in the hopes of wiggling its way out of unfavorable agreements with the US, while keeping the door to Russian business semi-open with one foot. It’s some fancy acrobatics, to be sure, and it does look desperate. Germany and German allies – in other words, the strongest northern and central EU economies – see the writing on the wall and they don’t want to be caught in the upcoming Ukraine/US fallout. They are also rushing to secure Russian gas agreements while they still can.
Turkish Stream Prediction
It’ll be somewhat harder for Turkey, Greece and Italy to push the Turkish Stream construction through. Their pull isn’t as hefty as Germany’s and the pressure on them will be significant both from the US and EU.
But my confident prediction is this: unlike the botched South Stream project, which relied on the weak key transiter, Bulgaria, the Turkish Stream project will be accomplished successfully. The reason is that Turkey is much stronger than Bulgaria as a key transiter. Greece (key transiter 2) will be fine as well, as long as it remains steadfast. This will be a tall order, but Greeks are fighters and they can do it.
The Myth of the United EU and NATO: Geopolitical and Economic Rivalries Explosion
What many are missing is that Germany and Greece are acting here as direct rivals. Germany wants to keep all of Russian gas under its control, in order to then distribute it to all of the EU, thus keeping its control over Eurozone. Meantime, for Greece their participation in the Turkish Stream and association with Russia is a terrific negotiation ploy and additional leverage in their fight for independence against the EU, IMF and German dictate. To top it off, Russian partnership is a lifesaver for the fledgling Greek economy.
As such, Germany sees Greek revolt as a challenge to their EU power and hegemony. From this it’s easily understood that Germany and Brussels would try to undermine and sabotage Greece and other countries who are participating in Turkish Stream.
US will also try to sabotage it for both geopolitical reasons and for their own economic reasons. US wants to sell its shale gas to the EU. Its dream is to push Russia out as the primary gas supplier to the EU, taking Russia’s place and, therefore, binding the EU to itself not just militarily and economically, but also energy-wise.
Consequently, the fight between Greece and EU/Germany we are presently observing is much more than a fight for Greece’s debt restructuring. It’s also beyond the projected Grexit. It’s about distribution of Russian gas and future control of European energy security.
When Bulgaria’s puppet government foolishly refused to allow South Stream through its territory, loosing potential billions in future profits, Turkish Stream was born. It will go through the bottom of the Black Sea, using Russian waters, a small stretch of international waters and Turkish waters. Then, it will go through the northwestern-most part of Turkish territory, with branch-outs to supply large parts of Turkey with Russian gas. Why is it important that it only goes through the northwestern part of Turkey? This is the quietest and most prosperous part of Turkey. The east and south are restive and volatile, with Kurdish and Syria-related unrest.
But Turkey isn’t a member of the EU. Turkish Stream will get to the border with Greece at which point Greece will take over the pipeline for further distribution to other EU countries.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Erdogan sign the Turkish Stream deal
As we see, Greece/Turkey and Germany are now in direct competition for the exceedingly lucrative Russian gas venture. Therefore, the fight between them is also the fight for future control and profits.
Putin’s Gambit: the all-around win for Russia
We spoke on many prior occasions about how Putin works. Sometimes, it appears he doesn’t respond directly to various threats and adversarial actions by the US, Kiev junta and EU, instead, he takes his time and acts asymmetrically, when he is ready. And every time Russia acts, it’s an unexpected and pretty crushing move. This is why they call Putin the Grand Chess Master.
Nord Stream-2 partner is the No. 1 German energy giant E.On, as well as Shell (Dutch-British) and other German companies, such as OMV and Wintershall. It is understood that such companies wouldn’t commit to Nord Stream-2 without securing a serious backing of the German government. It is also a given that Nord Stream-2 will be pushed through by Germany in record time. In fact, it will be built faster than Turkish Stream.
This puts fire under Turkey. The thing is that after the Turkish Stream deal was signed by Erdogan, he imagined himself in the driver seat. He began looking for more preferences, playing on the Crimean Tartar controversy and delaying the approval for the engineering survey of the pipeline route. Immediately after the Nord Stream-2 deal was signed, the Italian engineering survey vessel, which was sitting in the Bulgarian port of Burgas waiting for Turkey’s permission to enter the Black Sea for six months, was finally allowed to start work. Erdogan also changed his tack on a number of other issues.
Recall what I once said before: Erdogan and Turkey are attempting to play their own game in the Middle East and southeastern Europe, not always successfully and not always nicely. However, on balance Turkey is still a strong and convenient ally for the Turkish Stream and various other projects, for a variety of reasons – from geopolitical, to psychological and economic. For one, Erdogan is pissed at the US, EU and NATO, and two, he wants gasification of his country, whose archaic coal-based system is in desperate need of replacement with clean modern energy.
Therefore, Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream are in direct competition. This is excellent, as it will finally balance the situation with Russian gas supply to the EU, which has become precariously imbalanced after Ukraine, and sometimes Belarus, began playing blackmail games. The result was that Ukraine endangered EU’s energy security and Russia’s energy livelihood. And that’s just not done.
There is an ‘opinion’ of ‘the couch potato experts’ that Russia won’t have enough gas to fill both pipelines.
However, having reserve capacity on hand is actually the point! Two pipelines will be filled with gas as needed, reserve capacity used as necessary. The constant competition between the two will not allow either party to attempt what Ukraine has done for years: blackmail Russia either economically or geopolitically, while keeping EU gas customers hostage.
The realisation of the plan of the competing pipelines will put an end to the American Dream of cutting Russian gas from Europe. Will US try to stop the construction? Undoubtedly. My prediction: because of well-chosen allies, and unlike with South Stream, they will fail.
The deadline for the complete turn off of the Ukraine gas transit system is 2019. Until then, EU and Germany will have to continue paying for Ukrainian gas in order to ensure Ukraine doesn’t turn off the vent.
Alexander Medvedev, Gasprom Deputy Chairman said: “After the current gas transit agreement with Ukraine expires, there will be no new contract, nor extension of the existing contract, under any circumstances. Due to the economic, political, investment and technological risks, there will be no more Ukraine gas transit, not even if sun and moon switch places in the sky.”
China: Deeper reason for the stampede to secure Russian gas
In addition to the Turkish Stream and Nord Stream rivalry, for the EU and Germany there is another, more important consideration.
Germany must act now, before Russian gas gets redirected to China and Asia via the Power of Siberia pipeline. Let’s recall my 2014 predictions: once it happens, it will be too late and EU will begin experiencing gas shortages. Shortages can be avoided if Europe acts now to secure multi-year gas commitments.
Therefore, Russia is building a fully balanced and diversified Eurasian gas supply system, and Chinese counterweight plays a big part in it.
Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream will eventually take all gas transit business away from Ukraine. It means that regardless of how the power in Ukraine changes in the following 2-3 years (and it will), Ukraine will only be able to buy gas for itself – at market prices. It won’t be able to profit from the exclusive gas transiter status.
Poor, naive Ukrainians; while they were yelling and screaming on Kiev maidan that Russia was bad, shrewd Europeans nodded politely and did what they had to do to provide for their energy security. This eventually will render Ukraine unnecessary for either US or EU, and, as I predicted, it will simply be abandoned. Too bad the cost will be so great for the people… I wonder, will Ukrainians ever learn?
This effectively means that US will lose interest in Ukraine and drop it like a hot potato. Recall my timeline for the mega-changes in Ukraine: 2016-18.
US LNG Shale Gas
But what about the US and its LNG shale gas, you ask? Judging by the St. Petersburg deals, Europeans aren’t holding their breath for it.
Let’s be clear: US shale gas is yet another bubble. This, awfully harmful to the environment bubble, will burst, just like so many before it.
Where is China?
What went completely unnoticed in the media was the presence of China at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. Too bad, because this is actually the country everyone should have been watching in the first place. Chinese press wrote after the event that China and Russia fortified their future-oriented, long-term strategic partnership. Russia is the key partner in China’s New Silk Road project, which will unite in one economic space China, Russia/Eurasian Union, most of Asia and EU.
For more listen to my interview: Putin’s Disappearance and the New Silk Road ~ The Plane Truth
I spoke many times about the need to reunify all of Eurasia. This is one continent. The artificial division on Europe and Asia has to come to an end. Through trade and energy, this is what Russia and China are working on.
While Germany, Turkey and Greece trip all over themselves to be first to sign gas transit agreements with Russia, China is continuing its patient long-term expansion. Unlike the expansions of the US and EU, it targets to cooperatively unite, not divide. Patience is one thing Chinese have lots of. Pragmatic wisdom and vision is another.
Europeans could learn a lot from both Russians and Chinese.

Greek PM Tsipras at St. Petersburg Economic Forum 2015: Geopolitical and Economic Center of the Planet Has Shifted
Europe shouldn’t view itself as a “hub of the universe” and it has to understand that the center of world economic development is shifting to other regions, said Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, speaking at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/125m20
Also watch my related video commentary: Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey-Greek Election-EU Breakup (LRL6).
Four months ago I recorded that commentary immediately after the Greek elections, which unseated the pro-US, pro-Brussels elite and propelled the left-wing Tsipras to power. My prediction was that Greece would exit the EU by 2017 and that Turkish Stream pipeline would after Turkey go through Greece in order to proceed towards Serbia and the Balkans. At that time, some argued with me that Greece wouldn’t exit EU as Greek politicians said they ‘wouldn’t.’ Others argued that Russia’s Turkish Stream pipeline wouldn’t go through Greece, stopping at the Turkish border.
By now we all know that Greece is already discussing exiting the EU; moreover, we also know that Turkish Stream most definitely will go through Greece to deliver gas through the Balkans further into Europe.
Russia, Greece sign €2bn deal on Turkish Stream gas pipeline. Russia and Greece have signed a deal to create a joint enterprise for construction of the Turkish Stream pipeline across Greek territory, Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak said.

Added 4/8/15: Greece – Russia Breakthrough: What did #Tsipras and #Putin discuss in Moscow – latest updates!
As I predicted in this post and in my earlier article and video (see links below), during today’s meeting in Moscow, Putin and Tsipras signed documents related to the extention of the Turkish Stream through Greece, making Greece into a major Russian gas distribution hub for Europe, including the Balcans, Hungary, Austria and Italy. Russia also offered Greece a credit. To bypass Russian agri sanctions against EU, Putin proposed joint Greek-Russian agricultural ventures. 50% of Greek imports to Russia were agriculture and food. Greece suffers tremendous losses from Russian EU agri ban, and the new joint venture plan is to reverse that . Putin’s video announcement in Russian.
Generally, Russia will continue the strategy of working with separate EU countries that want to do business with Russia, thus bypassing the unfriendly regimes and giving preferential treatement to the friendly ones.
In his statement, Putin also called on EU to terminate any sanctions against Russia, and Russia would then terminate any return sanctions against EU. Putin said that Russia is for working and having cordial relations with the entire “United Europe.”
4/7/15. Original article:
The Greek Dilemma: Between Russia and EU. PREDICTIONS by Lada Ray
Today’s Greek Dilemma: Between Russia and the EU. Or, between Moscow and the Hard Place.
Once the Greek government announced that PM Alexis Tsipras would be visiting Moscow on April 8 to talk to Putin, the howling among EU politicians and MSM became deafening.
The truth is, EU policies make countries that are in financial trouble seek help elsewhere. On one hand, EU talks about unity and EU values, on another creates an impossible situation for countries like Greece. By April 9, Greece has to come up with nearly €450 mln to repay IMF, and the money is scarce.
Right now, the new Greek government wants to play on differences between EU and Russia, which run deep due to Ukraine crisis. Another place where Greece can seek financing is China. But that will only happen after all the negotiations with Russia are complete and depending on their result. In the end, Russia may even broker a Greece-China deal, or the deal may be split between Russia and China. Basically, Russia is ready to consider Greek request, as announced by Russian FM Lavrov.
In a way, Greece is playing Russia and EU against each other. But the long-term consequences run much deeper. They range from Greece declaring bankruptcy and exiting the EU… to getting closer to Russia and China, with the end result of exiting the EU.
Should I say, I told you so? I have described this scenario in my article Predictions: The beginning of the EU End? When Will Greece Exit EU? Who Is Next?.
For more also see this LadaRayLive video: LRL6. Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey-Greek Election-EU Breakup.
In the above pieces, I made a prediction that Greece would leave the EU around 2017. I feel that until then, Greece will try to work with EU in an effort to prevent default and further destruction of its economy, but these attempts won’t bring the desired result. All the relations, financial ties and debt relative to the EU will take some time to unwind. That’s why it will take until 2017 for Greece to disentangle from this mess (more on this topic in my above video and article).
The timing is also related to the timeline of the Turkish Stream, projected to be completed in 2017.
German taxpayer would bear most of the responsibility for bailing out Greece. From this perspective, Germany is right to be stingy. But Greece also has a trump card, which wouldn’t have been used if Germany weren’t squeezing Greece so hard. It is the thorny and long-buried issue of reparations the Nazi Germany never paid for the destruction during WWII. Will Greece get reparations? Not likely. But this toughness will help them bargain for a new bailout, or another payment postponement. This is a good bargaining chip to be sure that can be dangled every time Greece wants something from Germany.
The left-wing Syriza party currently in power is taking this tough bargaining position following its election promises to end austerity and re-negotiate country’s debt. It is clear that Syriza means business.
Relations between Greece and Russia
I said in my above-referenced pieces that Greece potentially can benefit tremendously from the Turkish Stream built by Russia through Turkey to the border with Greece. Russia proposes that Greece participate in the project by extending the pipeline through its territory to allow Russian gas to reach the target countries, such as Austria, Serbia and Hungary. This alone is tremendous incentive for Greece to take a pro-Russian position in the EU.
You’ll recall that the original South Stream from Russia to the EU was supposed to go through Bulgaria. However, after pressure from Brussels and a visit from McCain, Bulgaria suddenly disallowed South Stream through its territory, in direct opposition to the country’s interests. Who needs $750 mln a year in transit fees, new jobs, heavy gas discounts, business tourism and other perks. But Uncle McCain said no, and Bulgaria replied, ‘how high do you want me to jump?’ As a result, Russia cancelled South Stream.
None of what happened with Bulgaria is possible with the current leftist Greek government. McCain is certainly not invited. Many countries are interested in Russian gas going through Greece and this project is very much supported by Austria, Serbia and Hungary, among others.
Apart from that, the ruling Syriza party, being left-wing, is naturally and historically sympathetic to Russia.
Finally, Greece in general is traditionally, since centuries past, is staunchly pro-Russian. Greece, together with Cyprus, is even considered a ‘Russian Trojan Horse’ in the EU.
Greece is Orthodox, like Russia, not Catholic or Protestant. Similarity in religion creates affinity.
In addition, Greeks are eternally grateful to Russians for liberating them from the Turkish Osmanic Empire’s domination – and this is one of those cases when the country actually remembers the good. It’s interesting that at this point Greece, Turkey and Russia are working closely together, illustrating that nothing is eternal and things do change.
Therefore, old friendship and affinity run pretty deep. In this regard, nothing has to be built or created anew. The foundation is there, and all that has to be done is one small step towards each other. How far it will go is a different story because there is certain benefit for Russia if Greece stays in the EU – as I said, someone has to conduct pro-Russian policy within excessively russophobic EU. But there are also huge benefits to Greece turning closer to Russia.

Thank you, Mr. President! In his recent interview with CNN, Obama admitted that US ‘brokered’ Kiev ukro-nazi coup and Ukraine regime change.
Not that it is a secret to anyone, but it’s nice to hear it straight out of the horse’s mouth.
The world does need to hear this slip-of-the-tongue admission by the Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama that USA in fact was behind the violent ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014 in Kiev that unseated Yanukovich and created the bloody civil war in Ukraine. Just one day prior, on February 21, 2014, the EU and foreign ministers from Poland, Germany and France put their signatures under a deal between Yanukovich and Kiev maidan leaders, guaranteeing a stop to violence. One day later, based on the direct US order, as was revealed first in the leaked tape by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland, and now by Obama, the violent coup overturned Yanukovich, which resulted in the civil war with tens of thousands dead, Donbass infrastructure bombed into oblivion and Ukraine economy destroyed. See RT video with admission: Obama’s guilty conscience talking.
On nother note: notice how hurt Obama sounds during his State of the Union Address and in this interview, towards Putin. Obama comes across as having a fixation on Putin and feeling personally jealous. Not a good thing for a US president, in which he demonstrates both his weakness and insecurity.
In his State of the Union address, Obama said that when in 2014 ‘Putin took Crimea,’ as he put it, everyone touted that as a brilliant chess move. But where is Russia now, he added. Russian economy is in ‘tatters.’
I’ll leave outside the scope of this piece the fact that Russian economy is hardly in tatters and that mid-to-long-term the EU/US sanctions will benefit the Russian economy tremendously. I talked a lot about that in my various articles and YT videos throughout 2014. Also, see my new videos: LRL5: Manufactured Russian Crisis, US Manipulation and Medvedev Plan and LRL6. Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey – Greek Election – EU Breakup.
In the above interview, Obama is back to justifying what were spectacular fails by the US in 2014, namely, Crimea and Donbass. No, Crimea wasn’t any grand master plan by Putin, says Obama. It was merely a reaction to the circumstances AFTER WE BROKERED THE POWER TRANSFER IN KIEV (read: ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014 that led to bloody civil war that continues destroying Donbass and killing thousands of people).
Mr. Obama, you bet Putin was reacting to circumstances you and your friends created. If not for the US, there would have been no bloody mess in Ukraine, Donbass would have not rebelled, and Crimea would have still been a part of Ukraine. Read: US Planned to Turn #Crimea into Military Base Against Russia and Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014.
So, for what it’s worth, the citizens of the Russian Crimea are saying: “Thank you, Mr. Obama!” Thanks to you and your government’s miscalculations, Crimean people’s 23-year-old dream of re-uniting with Russia came true.
Citizens of Russia are also very grateful to you. They are thankful for the sanctions, which allow them to develop their own industry and agriculture that was disadvantaged by the proliferation of the Western produce on the Russian market. Given time, these sanctions will also allow Russia to properly rebuild its financial and monetary system, nationalize Central Bank and re-gain full sovereignty of the Russian currency. This is the beginning of the end of the dollar system.
Citizens of the world are grateful to you, as well. Thanks to the US government’s over-reach and ignorant arrogance, people not only in Russia, South America and Asia have woken up. The rebellion is now starting in the EU. The first country to rebel is Greece; Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia, and eventually France, UK and Germany to follow.
Europe’s natural trade partner is Russia. Eurasia, with countries like China and India, is growing fast. Russia is a natural bridge between Europe and Asia. It is through Russia that Western Europe can connect with the booming Asia. Western Europe, Russia and Asia are a natural alliance, allowing people all over the entire continent (Europe + Asia = Eurasia) benefit from each other’s strength and borrow each other’s expertise.
The development of Eurasia, based on the new cooperative principles, will change the balance of our planet. Abandoning behind today’s predatory capitalism, people of our planet need to move to the cooperative society of the future.
America, both North and South, Africa and Australia can then also become the equal and productive partners of the new, stable and cooperative planet Earth. However, to achieve that, first we need to change the imbalanced situation that exists today when single, overly aggressive country tries to dictate to the rest of the world.
The Eurasia story is very important. Stay tuned to my upcoming Earth Shift Reports in which we will discuss it in detail!
US vassals and ‘allies’ are rebelling all over the world. A loyal vassal and NATO member of many years, Turkey, has effectively switched sides. I remember the Cold War days, when Turkey was the place from where NATO/US bases threatened Russia and the city of Odessa, where I grew up, from the south. Today’s Turkey signed the Turkish Stream agreement with Russia and is in line for ascension into SCO. One of the latest occurrences: when Ukraine announced their US sponsors were building LNG terminal in Odessa to replace Russian gas, Turkey that controls the straits announced they won’t let US tankers into the Black Sea.
Meanwhile in Greece: after winning the Greek elections, the Syriza party already announced that they would consider exiting NATO and EU. I said in my recent LadaRayLive video about Turkish Stream and Greek elections (see link above) that Cyprus would follow Greece, should Greece decide to exit EU (and NATO). Interesting news crossed the wires from Zerohedge. Cyprus, reportedly, has offered its territory for a Russian navy base. The strategic importance of such location cannot be underestimated.
France is being threatened by the US repeatedly because the French are trying to break the mold and serve as a bridge between Russia and the West. See related articles: Who Benefits from the Death of the French Oil Giant Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie? and Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine and How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates.
US manages to keep Angela Merkel of Germany in line, but the German people are not fooled. The latest trip to Kiev and Moscow by Merkel and Hollande are a signal of EU’s dissent as well. Future will tell us how far this dissent will go, but it’s the beginning.
Even Israel and Saudis are starting to rebel.
It’s not going very well for Mr. Obama on the international arena, which is why his rating keeps dropping and is at an all-time low for his presidency. Meanwhile, Putin’s, already high rating, has jumped up in the past year. Putin’s general approval rating is between 83 and 88. Another recent poll showed that if presidential election were held today, 74% of Russians would have voted for Putin, which is a record number. In 2012 almost 64% voted for Putin, in 2004 – 68%.
Seems like all Obama is doing lately is scrambling to catch-up to Putin all over the world. Putin goes to Cuba – several months later Obama announces that 50 years of anti-Cuban sanctions have been an epic fail and that US needs to re-establish relations with Cuba (check out my articles about Cuba and Putin’s trip to Latin America on this blog). For years, Russia has been working with Iran, lessening the impact of Western sanctions and brokering various agreements between Iran and the West. Suddenly, Obama remembers that anti-Iran sanctions are also a fail and announces that Iran, after all, does have the right to nuclear energy.
Putin recently went to India, signing $20bln worth of trade agreements. Barely a few weeks later, Obama followed in Putin’s tracks. He tried to convince India to leave the BRICS, offering some perks that weren’t fully disclosed.
Signs are important. A red carpet was rolled out for Obama in India. But as Obama descended from his plane, his tank-like limo drove onto the red carpet and blocked Obama’s path. To shake hands both Obama and Indian president had to walk around the limo.
Later, Obama watched a military parade in his honor, while chewing gum, which Indians took as an insult. They should have pitied him instead as chewing gum actually denotes discomfort and nervousness.
I can certainly see why Obama had felt nervous while watching that military parade. For one, Indians were demonstrating rockets, tanks and other serious military hardware. The polite Indians would always make their guest welcome, but in this case, this demo of the Indian military power was no doubt meant as a subtle (well, not so subtle, perhaps) hint not to try anything funny as India would be capable of defending itself. But the clincher was that Indians made Obama sit through the parade filled with latest Russian technology recently purchased by India. Anyone would start chewing gum at such humiliation!
After Obama’s visit to India, China issued a rare official warning to India that they shouldn’t get too close to the US and that they should stick with their BRICS friends. China is obviously acting here on behalf of other BRICS countries. But in reality, China needn’t worry. US won’t get anywhere with India. Same goes for Iran and Cuba.
For all these countries US overtures are too little too late. These jerky moves by Obama denote desperation and admission of the fact that power is slipping away from the world hegemon wannabe.
In the very beginning of 2014 I predicted that US getting involved in Ukraine and orchestrating the illegal nazi coup in Kiev would not get them anywhere long-term. I said that they already lost, but they don’t know it yet. Unfortunately, the energy that is clearly set in stone in the cosmic sense; in other words, something I can clearly see as already manifested as a mystical futurist, takes a long time to play out in 3D. 3D is the three-dimensional reality of the physical dimension in which humanity exists. Therefore, what was clearly visible to me since February 2014, is only now starting to manifest in the physical reality.
I also said that at this time of massive Earth Shift and re-building of the entire human econo-political system, smaller countries and countries that are in-between (the ones whose allegiances could be divided) could benefit by negotiating preferential deals with both sides. It’s sort of like children of divorced parents, who can get twice the presents and ice cream from both. But such things only go so far. At some point everyone will have to decide which way they go.
As to India, I hear my Indian friends saying that Russia is their most loyal friend that had proven time and again their friendship. Therefore, there is no question in their mind which way to go.
Incidentally, FM of India has met with FMs of China and Russia in Beijing to discuss their common affairs, following Obama’s visit to New Delhi. Link to press conference in Chinese and Russian. Translating from the diplomatic tongue it means: “Sure, we met with Obama, but it was all for show. We are with you all the way, rest assured.”
Neither Indians, nor Iranians or Cubans, not to mention Greeks, Italians, Kazakhs, South Americans and Chinese have any illusions about the US. They know very well who their friend is, and who isn’t. When I traveled in Asia in the early 2000, I was amazed at how people felt towards the US in countries such as Malaysia. The past 12 years and latest Malaysia Airlines false flags only reinforced their opinion.
This information is diligently suppressed in the West, but the rest of the world understands very well that it was US, together with its vassals, who orchestrated the bloody nazi coup in Kiev for the purpose of destroying Ukraine, destabilizing Russia and EU, and in order to put a wedge between Russia and EU (for details see my 2014 articles about Ukraine and PREDICTIONS).
People don’t buy the official US lies. The old US playbook has stopped working.
So, Mr. Obama, as they say in Russia, don’t dig a grave for someone else – you’ll fall in it yourself.

EARTH SHIFT REPORT update:
The Earth Shift Reports are coming soon. New information has come out that needs to be incorporated. I will only release my reports when the energy is right and when I feel satisfied that I’ve covered everything I need to cover; in other words, when I feel I’ve captured the COMPLETE picture. Besides, I want to take into account recent requests by readers for additional information and new Earth Shift Reports. In what order the reports will start coming out? Again, it depends on which one is ready first and how the energy aligns. Please be patient. And as you may probably already know from reading my articles, your patience will be amply rewarded by new revelations!
The reports will be posted on my new site LadaRay.info and announced on FuturisTrendcast.

Bravo and congratulations to the left-wing SYRIZA party for spectacularly winning the Greek elections!
My brief predictions (I may expand on them later):
This is the beginning of an end of the EU!
What is fascinating is that in this resistance to the EU and US dictate, the most unlikely forces get united: from far left to the very radical right; from spiritual people to simple farmers and big industrialists. This is because the present day US/dollar-centric ‘world order’ makes no sense to anyone, and just about anyone who has two brain cells to rub against each other wants change.
However, it will take perhaps a few years for Greece to exit the EU due to how entangled the economic and financial situation is and how much pressure Greece receives from Brussels, Germany (which stands to lose most), and France. And don’t forget the NATO pressure; plus, the biggest monster of them all – the United States!
I see Greece exiting the EU around 2016 or 2017. This event is set in stone and is just the matter of time: GREECE WILL EXIT THE EU!
More defections are on the horizon, including Italy, France, UK, Hungary, among others.
Many smaller Eastern European countries are desperate to exit the EU, but they are practically enslaved by Germany, as they say, and can’t get out. Even Italians complain that they had been enslaved by Germany, remembering with nostalgia the good old non-EU days, and confessing how much they hate Merkel.
That said, many Germans also understand very well what is happening, as we discussed in a number of previous articles.
The whole thing will implode and exodus out of EU will become a stampede by the 2020s. This will be an interesting deja vu of the implosion of the USSR.
At the same time, more and more countries will want to join a union with Russia and become part of Eurasian Union and SCO. Once 2020s roll in, you won’t recognize the world around us!
As I said in my last piece, West Invaded Ukraine: English-Speakers, NATO Troops Fight for Kiev Junta in Mariupol!, the deeper US/NATO/EU dig their claws into the poor Ukraine, trying so hard to destroy it in order to harm Russia, the harder they will fall in the end.
Incidentally, did I mention that both Greeks and Italians love Russians, and en masse support Putin and Russia. I just spoke with various people from both countries. They are also very much anti-Kiev junta, and anti-fascism in Ukraine and EU. An average person on the street understands correctly what is happening in Ukraine. Moreover, today, TV in both Greece and Italy is showing a pretty truthful account of the events in Ukraine.
The Italians are incredulous and angry that US/EU/Kiev would bomb people, blockade cities, deny pensions, and destroy infrastructure in E. Ukraine. My sister residing in Italy (who is originally from the Russian city of the ship-builders Nikolaev, located not far from Odessa – both for now a part of Ukraine), as well as my other sources, confirm that. Similar opinions are coming from the people of other countries, including Cyprus, Albania, Romania.
The people all over eastern and southern Europe know what is going on. They also hate the anti-Russian sanctions and confrontation with Russia. For now they think they can’t do anything about it. But the discontent is brewing and status quo will change!
