HEADS UP, DEAR FUTURIST TRENDCAST FOLLOWERS!
Denny Hunt, the host of WhyIsThisTrue, and I have recorded a new interview. In the interview we discuss why some people in the West feel a mysterious connection to Russia when they seemingly have no Russian heritage. What is behind this attraction — past lives? Or is it the fact that people are awakening to the fact that Russia – The Great Balancer is the only force on the planet which can provide stability and balance? We also discuss: the forbidden history of Russia and how the history of the world was falsified; The New Chronology by Fomenko and Nosovsky, and how and why 1000 years were added to the so-called ‘medieval times.’
This interview should come up in a few days (I’ll let you know and provide the links)!

DIPLOMATIC WAR: RUSSIA TO EXPEL 755 US DIPLOMATS AND STAFF
Putin has announced that the staff of the American embassy in Moscow, as well as consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok are to be reduced by 755 people. This will bring the US diplomatic and support staff in Russia to 455 people, down from 1100, which will be on par with the number of Russian diplomatic and support staff in the US. Both US diplomatic and technical staff has to leave the country by September 1.
Moscow also announced that US diplomatic missions in Russia are losing the use of storage facilities in Chertanovo area of Moscow, as well as the embassy dacha resort in Serebryany Bor near Moscow.
US embassy Chertanovo warehouses access to which has been revoked as of August 1:
Side note about color revolution in Russia, pro-West ‘opposition’ and Navalny
I should mention that Trump recently announced that the US ambassador and much of the staff in Russia would be replaced soon. It’s not clear yet what form it would take, but there is a possibility of more future Russian sanctions against new US staff, most, if not all of whom tend to be engaged in creating a color revolution and regime change in Russia. As the 2018 Presidential Election in Russia nears, the US embassy spies have tripled their efforts to destabilize Russia.
A notorious recent example was how in the middle of a local election US diplomats were caught on camera meeting with opposition leader Alexey Navalny. Similar documented meetings, including passing on of suitcases full of cash took place in the past. Some of that had been caught on camera and shown on national Russian TV.
Navalny is well-known for his unsanctioned, openly manipulative and provocative rallies in Moscow, the latest of which was a provocation during a Russian State holiday, subjecting unsuspecting holiday-goers with families and small children to danger in the center of Moscow. Navalny was also exposed for recruiting young teenagers to do his bidding, who were promised a good payday for coming out to protest (sounds familiar — Kiev Maidan anyone?). Per Russian sources, Alexey Navalny had previously been exposed in various journalistic investigations as a CIA asset on US payroll.
The true popular support of Navalny and other anti-Putin, pro-West ‘opposition’ leaders is anywhere between 1 and 2 percent, as previous elections showed. However, using the support and training US and their vassal Poland provide, they make a lot of noise on social media and in streets, attempting to reproduce the Kiev Maidan 2014 scenario. Are they really this stupid and don’t get it that Ukraine scenario is impossible in Russia, that the population will simply come out and bury them, should they try anything like that? In part, yes, they are that stupid. After all, it did work for them to dismantle the Soviet Union. They run on the old CIA playbook inertia, failing to grasp that today’s Russia, and Putin as Russia’s leader, are a completely different story.
But in part, they don’t care if they achieve their ultimate goal or not. Plan B involves simply destabilizing Russia, weakening Putin and miring Russia in internal problems, so that Russia and Putin cannot participate effectively in their role as The Great Balancer of the Planet Earth. If they can somehow make Putin so weak and compromised that he would not run for presidency next year, that would be their ultimate wet dream (obviously, NOT gonna happen).
In conclusion of this side note, I recommend you check out my essential FT article exposing Michael McFaul: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. This wolf in sheep’s clothing, universally hated in Russia, is now engaged through his Twitter account in very skillfully igniting discord between Russia and US, and Russia and Ukraine. As I said in above-linked article, when they choose to use their talents for evil, all of us suffer.
As usual, Putin waited till last second with his ‘US diplomatic staff reduction’ move and gave as much benefit of the doubt to Trump administration as possible. And as usual, Putin’s move is surgically designed and carefully thought through.
If you recall, just as he was leaving the White House in December, Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats, giving them and their families, including school children, hardly 48 hours to leave the country. Check out my December 2016 article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations. This was done in a notoriously cruel and inhumane fashion, so that families would be unable to settle their financial, housing and school affairs. In fact, they hardly had any time to pack.
Obama also took away two Russian diplomatic resorts, where the children of diplomats could go to summer camp and where families went for R&R. One such resort was not far from Washington DC. In 1977, The Soviet government officially purchased the compound for $1.2 mln.
Usually, such diplomatic compounds would be swapped between countries, based on mutual agreement. For instance, there was an agreement between the USSR, inherited by Russia, and USA about mutual exchange of properties in each country, to be used for diplomats and their families as private resorts or other needs. If the US allotted a piece of such real estate to Russia (USSR) in the US, a comparable piece of real estate had to be allotted to the USA in Russia.
The problem is that the resort near Washington DC wasn’t even a part of the exchange deal. It was purchased for $1.2 mln fair and square, and was fully owned by Russia. Therefore, taking away that particular resort amounts to an illegal expropriation of private property by the US government, using threats and force. This never happened even at the height of the Cold War. And you still think the USSR was bad?
I described why this was done by the USA right before the New Year – Christmas holidays, in the above referenced article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats.
The first words ‘I hate being right’ refer to the fact that I predicted things like this would happen in my bestselling Earth Shift Report 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER (release Oct. 20-21, 2016).
In the report I predicted that Trump would be put in a straitjacket so he would not be able to fulfil his campaign promises. I also said that there would be no need to assassinate him, that a whole big and all-encompassing campaign would be designed around him and his people, in order to sabotage anything he tried to change, until he would be forced to cave in and make deals in order to simply survive.
The frantic activity to sabotage Russia-US relations in late December by Obama, when usually a lame duck president would be playing golf, accounts for the fact that the outgoing administration had to create as many obstacles to improving Russia-US relations as possible. As we remember, ‘improving Russia-US relations’ was one of the key promises of the Trump campaign, which no doubt helped him win presidency.
In EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM (release Feb. 4, 2017) I re-affirmed what I said in Earth Shift Report 16. I also expanded on it and brought up new details and intel. Just a week into Trump being in office it was already abundantly clear that he would quickly cave in and try to make deals with those who did everything to sabotage him — in order to survive. In the webinar we talked about the probability of impeachment, and when it was likely happen.

4D WAR BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW: TRUMP’S STRAITJACKET & NEW ANTI-RUSSIAN SANCTIONS
In my writings and talks, I also explained why Russia did not retaliate as soon as the Russian diplomats were expelled and Russian property was expropriated by the USA. Putin and Russia understood what was happening. They were graciously giving the Trump administration time to settle in and act accordingly. One of the promises Trump made early on was that once in office, he would immediately take steps to return Russian properties and diplomats. It never happened. Russians still waited, because during phone calls, Trump explained to ‘dear Vladimir’ that he was in a tight spot: recall the phrase I coined while predicting this outcome: ‘Trump’s straitjacket.’
July 7-8 G20 in Hamburg came, along with the much-anticipated meeting between Putin/Lavrov and Trump/ Tillerson. Discussed were Syria, Ukraine and N. Korea, as well as anti-Russian sanctions and China. The promise by Trump administration to return Russian diplomats and properties was raised more than once during negotiations, according to Russian FM Lavrov. After the meeting, Lavrov stated, with a very disappointed expression on his face, that no progress on that front was achieved and that the work would continue.
Let’s recall that the only progress that was achieved during G20 Trump-Putin meeting, as far as Russia-US cooperation goes, was on Syria. This corresponds with my EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM prediction, where I said that I am reasonably skeptical (I tried to break the bad news slowly and mildly) about Trump being able to turn around relations with Russia due to his tight straitjacket, and that the only cooperation between Russia and US I can see is in Syria — and only tactical, only in small ways, nothing substantial or truly groundbreaking.
Trump’s straitjacket turned out very tight; it was constructed solidly and much faster than many of my readers thought possible. That is because they didn’t waste any time: Plan B was already in motion even before US election, when it was becoming clear that Trump could win, while Hillary was not fit for office. And what did you think, they’d wait, naively hoping their candidate would win? These forces, lurking in the dark, work on contingencies months and even years ahead, depending on the situation.
Speaking of planning… I am sure Russia was preparing the US diplomats expulsion months ahead as well, but was giving Trump/Tillerson the benefit of the doubt till last second. In the true fashion of the Great Balancer and Harmonizer, Russia wanted to see whether it was possible to resolve the issue without rocking the boat and without wrecking the US-Russia relationship even further.
However, instead of any sort of return gesture of good will, typically for the aggressively imbalanced West, Russia received new sanctions. These new sanctions, passed by the Congress by a landslide (only 3 were against), target Russia’s very economic livelihood: the Energy Sector. They also target one of the key Russian infrastructure projects to the EU: Nord Stream 2. In fact, the document published by Congress, which details sanctions against three main US enemies, Russia, Iran and N. Korea, dedicates two-thirds of its pages to Russia. It states point-blank that the goal of the US is to sabotage Nord Stream 2 at all cost.
Trump didn’t sign the new sanctions into law yet, but there is no chance of his vetoing them as the Congress adopted them practically anonymously and presidential veto can be easily overcome. This is that ‘Trump’s straitjacket’ — in action. This is that by-partisan war against Trump in full swing, of which I warned in Earth Shift Report 16 and EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1.
Therefore, dear readers, you can forget about Trump if you still had any illusions.
By the way, look at what happened with the repeal of Obamacare, and look at the number McCain has pulled on the Senate floor. As I advised you all in 2015-16: forget old divisions on democrats vs. republicans, left vs. right wing. This is all so 20th century!
The new No. 1 telltale litmus test of who is who is how they feel and act regarding Russia. No. 2: how they feel about US hegemony and bases all over the world. Once you have done these two tests, you can know for sure if such and such politician deserves your vote.
In this regard, I would like to ask you all, my dear American readers. Who has voted in a Congress full of rabid Russophobes? The Congress represents in a nutshell the American people. Is that what Americans really are?
VP Mike Pence has indicated that Trump will be signing the new anti-Russian sanctions because ‘of Russia’s destabilizing role in Ukraine.’ In other words, Trump completely caved in to survive his first term, as predicted. But it’s very doubtful he will, also as predicted. I’ll monitor this situation. But my general advice: forget Trump, he is finished — CONSIDER THIS MY NEW PREDICTION.
Speaking of which, the rumor is Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as Secretary of State. It’s visible to the naked eye that he is experiencing threats and huge pressure, and cannot control his own employees. Don’t blame him, ultimately, he values his life too. But he will (most likely) stay till the end of this year. I am not too concerned about the likes of Tillerson. These types always morph and adapt to whatever comes their way, they easily betray their principles and promises, if it suits them. Tillerson, just like Trump, may have had some relatively good ideas about making up with Russia, etc., but he, along with Trump, can easily forget those ideas, and make deals with the devil in order to come out of this situation with a personal gain, or at least with as little loss as possible.
However, the point is Trump is losing allies and shedding people left and right. Very soon he’ll be left all alone and will cave in completely.
4D WARS INTENSIFY: US-RUSSIA GAS WAR, EUROPE & NORD STREAM 2
The new anti-Russian sanctions target Western and Central Europe and those EU companies that are participating in Nord Stream 2. The enthusiasm for Nord Stream 2 in Europe has been huge. Something to the tune of $5.5 euros was pledged by EU investors immediately, before the construction began. At this point the Nord Stream pledge should be bigger than that.
Germany is the biggest investor. In addition to pledged billions, it has vested interest and direct participation in the construction. Germany supplies the gas pipes for the project, those same pipes that are targeted by new sanctions.
Italy, Austria, Hungary, Finland and others also pledged billions and participation. Germany is the hardest hit, but all these countries are in shock. After all, they are so used to doing what US tells them to do. Now they find themselves in an unnatural territory. There is much hurt feeling that ‘the US has betrayed its biggest ally EU.’ It took them this long to figure it out? I was warning EU about it since 2014. There is also noise in the EU about possible return anti-US sanctions, but do the brainwashed and sold-out EU elites have the courage and will to act?
Ultimately, it all depends on whether Germany will take the lead in the rebellion against the US, as only Germany pulls enough wight. I can tell you that Merkel won’t — she is too far gone. And this is why I have predicted since 2016 that Merkel would lose her election in the autumn of 2017!
The only hope is that the newly elected chancellor will be less sold-out and a little more courageous. However, the prognosis is not very good, despite the fact that German and European companies will suffer huge losses and for some the inability to benefit from Nord Stream 2 will be a kiss of death. When I say ‘for some,’ I mean not just companies, but whole countries. Austria and Hungary are very worried because for them Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream are the only possibility to ensure a secure gas supply for years to come.
Speaking of US lap dogs and French poodles! The moment US Congress passed anti-Russian sanctions, France withdrew its 2 bln euro investment in Nord Stream 2.
Remember the first round of anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and how France was forced by US to forfeit its delivery of the Navy carrier it had built for Russia? A billion+ project was literally thrown away. Russia got its money back through court, and although some sort of reduced deal was made to sell the ship to a third party, France lost both money and business reputation as a result. After that, India pulled out of lucrative deals with France.
This time, France decided not to wait and withdrew its Nord Stream 2 investment even before Trump signed the new anti-Russian sanctions.
The reason many European countries are worried is Russia’s 2016 announcement that Ukraine transit will be discontinued permanently as soon as the present transit contract expires on January 1, 2019. After that, Russia plans to let the Soviet-built pipe running through Ukraine to rot out unused. This would take the blackmail leverage away from Kiev: it won’t be able to blackmail either Moscow or EU, using its gas transiter status.
However, this announcement by Russia does a lot more. It also ensures that after January 1, 2019 USA loses all leverage over Russia and EU from the side of Ukraine. As I pointed out before, the fascist Kiev junta, and by extension, the occupied by them Ukraine, is used as a ram against Russia. But it’s also used as a blackmail tool against Europe/EU, and especially Germany. But not only Germany; many countries are feeling the pinch, including Austria, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia and Czechia, to name a few.
USA cannot afford this poison anti-Russian thorn it has created to be rendered useless. This is why Nord Stream 2 has to be sabotaged at all cost.
Many experts have said that the reason US wants to sabotage Nord Stream 2 is because USA wants to squeeze Russia out European market in order to sell their own fracking LNG gas to Europe. That’s just silly. Europeans aren’t that stupid and they know how to count their money. US fracking gas will be 3-4 times more expensive than Russia gas. It’s only Poland and the Baltics that could consider such ripoff to be a good deal. Russia doesn’t care about either Poland or Baltics, but Russia does care about lucrative business with the EU, and would like to keep EU markets, if at all possible.
The true reason for the new US sanctions is geopolitical, not economic. Even ‘Washington dreamers’ aren’t stupid enough to think EU will buy their gas at such prices and before infrastructure is even built. I spoke about this when Ukraine coup and anti-Russian sanctions began in 2014, and we are back to this yet again. What US is after is three things:
- Sabotage and keep down Russia – The Great Balancer as much as possible, preventing Russia’s normal live and steady development, if it’s not possible to annihilate Russia altogether.
- Sabotage and weaken Europe / EU as much as possible, as USA’s main technological competitor. But it goes further than that: a weaker Europe is a more subservient and less sovereign Europe. US is desperately clinging to the old 20th century model, under which weakened by WWII Europe was completely under US and did what the big boss said. US wants to keep that status quo, which is slowly slipping away, due to the Great Earth Shift.
- Keep Ukraine on life support, also completely subservient to the US, as a poison thorn in Russia’s side. This thorn can be activated at any moment to cause pain for Russia, but if need be, it can also be turned against the EU. US is desperate to keep Ukraine as that very important poison thorn. If Russian gas transit through Ukraine stops, then the role of Ukraine as anti-Russia on Russian borders strongly diminishes, until US has to abandon ‘the project Ukraine’ altogether. Trump has talked about slowly disengaging from Ukraine, but his surroundings and Congress won’t let him. The likes of McCain and Pence, and just about everyone else, will make him toe the line. The goal here is not to support Ukraine — they could care less about the people of Ukraine suffering and dying. The only use for Ukraine, from those dark entities’ perspective, is to use it as a poison pill, or as a ram against Russia and Europe. This is why they will support Ukraine till the last possibility.
Therefore, the main goal of the new anti-Russian sanctions is to slow down as much as possible the Nord Stream 2 construction, with the ultimate goal of weakening both Russia and EU.
In conclusion, please recall my 2014 prediction, which may come true, after all. As soon as the EU adopted first anti-Russian sanctions, I predicted that if Russia feels restricted by the West in any way, off to the East Russia goes. I said that Russia would quickly switch her focus to Asia and China. That’s exactly what happened: Russia and China became tighter than ever; various Asian and Middle Eastern countries beg for an increased Russian presence. (Read: Great Balancer Theory in Action! Iraq Requests Russia’s Military/Political Presence to Rebalance Region and World).
In the same set of 2014 predictions, I also said that as a result of sanctions EU may in several years time lose Russia as gas supplier and begin experiencing gas shortages. Today, July 31, 2017 Russia is preparing Plan B, in case EU caves in to US sanctions. Russian Plan B implies switching to alternative markets and alternative ways of gas delivery, which can cause serious gas shortages in certain EU countries, starting with Germany.
Let’s see if Germany and Europe in general have enough common sense and any sense of self-preservation left to act before it’s too late.

In today’s hugely surprise announcement, the Head of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexandr Zakharchenko announced the creation of the new sovereign state of Malorossia, to replace the failing state of Ukraine. The announcement was made in the presence of representatives of all remaining 19 regions of Ukraine.
Video with full Malorossia announcement by Zakharchenko:
Malorossia translates correctly as ‘Russia Minor’ (not ‘little Russia’ as some do). This designation was assigned to differentiate it from the Great Russia, or basically, today’s Russia. The Malorossia region within the Russian Empire was formed by Catherine the Great around central, and partially, western regions of what we call today ‘Ukraine.’ The historic Novorossia (New Russia) was formed our of southern and eastern regions of today’s Ukraine, also by Catherine the Great.
The proposed flag of Malorossia will resemble the historic flag during Bogdan Khmelnitsky’s rule of Malorossia. The national hero of Ukraine, Cossack leader Bogdan Khmelnitsky, approached Catherine the Great, asking her to accept Malorossia along with ancestral Cossack territories called Zaporozhie (hence ‘Zaporozhskie kozaki’ – cossacks) as part of Russia. This offer of becoming a subject of the Russian State, in exchange for military protection against the Ottoman Empire’s, Crimean Tartar, Polish, Vatican and general Western invasions, was accepted. What we now call central and parts of western Ukraine became the new subject of the Russian Empire. By choosing the name Malorossia and the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, the hint is made that eventually Malorossia aims at re-joining Russia.
Zakharchenko even identified the term: 3 years. During these three years DPR, with the help of experts from Russia, Belarus and other countries intends to form tribunals for crimes against humanity and treason committed by various Ukrainian elites. Zakharchenko has stated that Russia will be asked to extradite ex-president of Ukraine Yanukovich, to be tried in Malorossia. Others to be put on trial after the transition occurs are Poroshenko, Turchinov, Yatsenyuk and a long list of others. The crimes of Kiev and associated nazi battalions and organizations to be exposed, including the ATO and the genocide of the Donbass people, the burning of people in Odessa, and others.
Zakharchenko announced that Malorossia will encompass all oblasts of former Ukraine, excluding Crimea. It is to become a direct opposite alternative of the existing ukro-nazi state formed under the Kiev junta. It will be a non-fascist, free of oligarchs, democratically loose confederation of former Ukraine’s territories, with only the flag, army and federal finances concentrated in the hands of the state, and with a lot of power left in the hands of local authorities. The principles on which the new Malorossia state is to be formed are friendship and mutual cooperation. (Remember, these are the 5D principles!). As opposed to dominant around the world and in today’s Ukraine, exploitation, oppression and inequality.
Most importantly, The new Malorossia project offers the citizens of Ukraine a clear alternative: to be again friendly and close to Russia, something that the Kiev junta has completely denied its population.
Zakharchenko proposes the rule of direct democracy. The decision to join Malorossia has to be up to each citizen and each oblast of Ukraine. For that, internationally monitored referendums have to be held in each region, city and oblast of Ukraine. Let the people speak, the right they have been denied under Poroshenko Kiev regime.
Zakharchenko declaration implies that the new state of Malorossia is to become the rightful heir to the former, pre-Kiev-junta Ukraine. The capital of Malorossia is to be in Donetsk, and Kiev is to simply remain a cultural and historic center.
LADA’S 2 CENTS
It’s clear that both Russia and Donbass are searching for a new and more successful format for the future of the territory we so far call Ukraine.
I like the new proposal. It makes perfect sense, helps exit the dead-end Minsk talks. Via an electric shock, it awakens certain processes and creative juices, and gives hope to the long-suffering population of Donbass. It also challenges the West, as well as Russia, to respond and act. It also establishes the fact that Donetsk is a subject, not an object, of global politics and various negotiations. It affirms that Donetsk wants to lead, not to tag along. I like it, and I wish them all the success with the Malorossia project. It has a future.
Another thing that comes to mind is that this announcement has taken Kiev and just about anyone in the world by huge surprise.
But it wasn’t really a surprise. First, remember what I’d told you since February 4, 2017 in Webinar 1: Will Trump Survive his First Term? I said that US was preparing and looking for ways to quietly disengage from Ukraine, without losing face. Remember I described the Kissinger Plan for Ukraine and post-Soviet Space?
What is happening here, and what happened recently, as I described in: Moldova President Igor Dodon Issues Bold Indictment to the West. Ukraine update — these things are closely related.
The old borders and outdated geopolitical formats, which failed to withstand the test of time, won’t work any more. We are in the midst of the Great Earth Shift. Anything that hasn’t been well conceived, such as the slapped together controversial territory called Ukraine, can and will be swept away. New borders, states and new international formats have to emerge, and they are doing so.
I can also tell you that a significant chunk of those 2.5 hour closed-door negotiations between Putin and Trump at G20 in Hamburg were dedicated to Ukraine, Donbass and how to get out of this stalemate. (Read G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions!)
Warning: Zakharchenko announcement has already made a big controversial splash, including in Russia. There are forces who don’t want this to happen. But a push for change is needed — very badly.
Another problem: Zakharchenko hasn’t coordinated his announcement with Lugansk (LPR), which is not good. And according to some sources, it wasn’t coordinated with Moscow either, which is possible, but a little hard to believe.
And problem No. 3: remember what I said in G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions! ? Russia is not in a rush to be saddled with the destroyed territory of former Ukraine and to deal with its zombified population.
Zakharchenko quote: ‘We’ve been told by Kiev that we must return back to Ukraine. Sooner Ukraine will return to us.”
Recall my timeline for Ukraine turning back to Russia: by the end of 2018. I don’t mind if it takes a bit longer, as long as it’s done, and done right.

Some important follow-ups to my latest: Heil Poroshenko! Ukraine junta bans Russian SM, prepares to ban Russian Orthodox Church.
First, an update and some rare good news from Ukraine! Under the pressure from the international community and from Ukraine’s own citizens, for now the Ukraine Rada did not pass the proposed Russian Orthodox Church ban. It has been widely warned that such ban would generate an all-out religious war in Ukraine.
The pressure on Ukraine not to adopt such shameful and anti-democratic law has been very tough. Even the Pope got involved, strongly advising against it. However, it’s early to rejoice. They will continue coming after the Russian churches and after everything Russian for as long at this junta is in power. We have seen this dance and song before, say, in the renaming of the streets and cities in Ukraine. Or take the visa regime with Russia – it has been proven that they’ll endanger their own economy by doing it, yet the Bloody Pastor Turchinov and others are back at it full force. They will keep aggressively coming at it, until the public and/or lawmakers cave in.
The aggressive ukro-nazi element has been allowed to proliferate and grow like cancer in Ukraine for 25 years. We are seeing the sorry results of Ukraine’s 25 year ‘independence’ from Russia and common sense.
The only way to reign in this genocidal fascist dictatorship in Ukraine is for Russia and for us, the sane people of the world, to keep constant pressure on their foreign sponsors, who in turn will have no choice but to pressure the Kiev junta and Poroshenko to keep the Nazi element in check. To remind everyone, the main sponsors and supporters of the Kiev junta and ukro-nazis are: USA, Canada, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Romania, and Brussels/EU as a whole.
*** On another note, Russia has filed a complaint against Ukraine with WTO. If WTO does not fine Ukraine for the continuing border, business and trade violations, Russia may institute a visa regime and new economic sanctions against Ukraine. Russia for years has been awfully lenient towards Ukraine. But if Kiev junta continues aggressive anti-Russian stance, emboldened by the support of the West, Russia may respond in like.
Why people leave a country; How the Chi and Life force work; The People-Bridges
I know exactly how your wife feels and I know lots of people who thank the universe every day they moved out of Ukraine, and also those who are trying to get their elderly relatives out of there.
I fully understand why people want to leave. But therein lies the crux of the problem. As the higher calibrated, more educated, more active and higher IQ people continue their exodus (many of us had left years ago), they also withdraw their life force. When not enough smart and positive people are available to moderate the energy of such a place, it first stagnates, and then falls to the dark side. As a result, such country falls more and more into (forgive me) the imbecility we are observing in Ukraine today.
To understand how it works refer to my article Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force? (US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine, Syria).
The above notwithstanding, those of us who have left Ukraine, Russia, or any other country in order to live in the West are playing a very important and indispensable role of being the People-Bridges. We bridge different cultures, foster mutual understanding and benevolence, and we seed the Western collective consciousness with alternative information.
Can Israel take over Ukraine?
Nope. Russia won’t let that happen. I already answered this question and made a full prediction on that in ESR6 Ukraine: New Kazarian Khaganate and American Zionism. In the same ESR6 I answer various questions about Israel and Zionism. In it I don’t proliferate the popular half-truths nor simplified view of the issue, and I don’t do blame game or fear mongering. I reveal some historic truths, addressing the most convoluted forbidden history moments and controversial issues. A must read for those who are serious about understanding the truth.
That said, I for one would welcome any infusion into Ukraine of higher Chi from anyone. Russians are working with everyone, including Israel, to influence the Kiev junta from without. Israel, as always, is playing a double game, and it’s all very complicated. But Putin and his team are exceptional chess players. And again, every little bit of the restraining higher Chi influence from abroad helps.
Will it get worse in Ukraine before it gets better?
This, unfortunately, is the reality we are seeing. My original prediction has been that between 2016 and 2018 Ukraine will begin turning back towards Russia, but only after its economy is fully destroyed. We are now seeing the brutal process of a wholesale economic and social destruction.
And the changing timeline…
However, there has been a slight shift in the timeline reality due to Kiev junta holding on to power for dear life and due to the US/EU establishment and shadow forces continuing its support.
Due to this slight shift, there can be some delay in Ukraine’s shift towards Russia, albeit a slight one. Moreover, there can be gradual shift of various parts of Ukraine. However, I still DO NOT see the part by part shift outcome. I see most or all of Ukraine shifting at once.
If Ukraine still stagnates under Kiev junta till the end of 2018, there will be a significant change as of the end of 2018 – beginning of 2019, when Russia cancels the gas transit deal with Ukraine and after Nord Stream 2 has been built.
But as a result of the shifted timeline, Russia will not want to drag the dead body of Ukraine (sorry, however cruel it may sound) on her shoulders. Russia will be looking for cooperative solutions with other countries.
Neither would Russia ever invade Ukraine – per my original 2014 prediction. Or let’s just say, Russia would only send troops to Ukraine based on the UN, or similar, mandate. And even then – don’t think so. This prediction for the next 2-3 years only. After that a lot will change in the world.
I’ve written about the shifting timelines and the Mandela Effect in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18: LADA RAY FRENCH ELECTION PREDICTIONS: LE PEN – MACRON FACE-OFF & WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE EU.
And now we’ve come full circle. The change in Ukraine has to come from within. This has to be accompanied by Russian support and US/EU withdrawal. So far, this is not happening fast enough. But the situation may change very quickly in the next year or so. Stay tuned!
It has been clearly shown that the people are awakening, as we’ve seen during the Immortal Regiment march of May 9, 2017. In Kiev alone 60,000 people came out and all over Ukraine, anywhere between 600, 000 and a million.

A very admirable sentiment from #POTUS Donald Trump that peace needs to be made between Russia /Donbass and Ukraine. I couldn’t agree more. Looks like Trump is on his way to make good on his campaign intention, and according to my predictions here and also here.
USA wants to slowly and secretly distance itself from Ukraine, while attempting to save face. What a bummer for Obama and his handlers, after all their efforts to the contrary!
This alone was enough to cause a major Internet storm. But it gets better!
Notice one crucial difference between two photos, the difference that made the Kiev junta very upset?
Is it that Trump thought it was too much trouble to get up for Ukraine FM Klimkin? Is Klimkin bending, as if receiving orders from the big boss?
Feel the difference…
WHY TRUMP MET WITH LAVROV
Foreign Ministries of Russia and US are preparing the first meeting between Trump and Putin, which most likely will take place during the upcoming G20 in Germany. Several countries competed to host the first Trump – Putin meeting, including Finland, Germany and Austria. Obama admin purposely left much baggage behind in Russia-US relations so to complicate as much as possible the first steps of Trump admin. That baggage first needs to be sorted out, before the meeting can take place.
This is one of the reasons Angela Merkel flew to Sochi to see Putin on May 2, after she saw Trump: to sort through the past, get a firm confirmation that the historic meeting will indeed take place and see if she could get more indication on its terms.
Merkel also came to bring to Putin that proverbial olive branch. After all, she will stand for re-election later this year. In her mind it’s time to mend relations with Russia, but not because she means it. No – in order to ensure that the new US and EU bogeyman, ‘the Russian hackers,’ won’t ‘interfere’ in German elections.
Following Tillerson Moscow visit, Lavrov was in DC also to begin shaping up the terms and tone of the US-Russia relations for the upcoming Trump years. This, of course, includes Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Ukraine.
Lately, US has been excluded from various global decisions and forums, such as the Minsk forum on Ukraine or the Astana forum on Syria and Middle East. The latest is the exclusion of the US from the big China summit.
Russia has offered US some face-saving good deals on participation in Syria, albeit a very controlled participation. US is also concerned that Russian influence in Afghanistan and Iraq is increasing, while USA’s is waning. That has also factored into negotiations. As I predicted all along, per the Kissinger Plan, in exchange, US will need to slowly withdraw from Ukraine, Moldova and some other Eurasian areas (learn all about it in Lada Ray Webinar below!).
Recommended Webinar, ESR and articles to gain a full picture and to familiarize yourself with Lada Ray predictions:
WHY TRUMP MET WITH UKRAINE’S KLIMKIN
The entire Kiev junta, including Poroshenko, MSM, high level officials and politicians rooted for Hillary and mocked Trump during his campaign. Poroshenko personally initiated a scandal as a result of which Trump had to fire his campaign manager last August. After Trump won, Poroshenko and entire Kiev establishment promptly flip-flopped and began kissing Trump’s behind. I am NOT exaggerating – if anything, I am toning it down!
The latest intel: Washington lobbyists were paid $400,000 to make sure Klimkin is allowed in Trump’s presence. The audience lasted 6 minutes. During it, Trump merely uttered that ‘Minsk agreements have to be fulfilled and Ukraine has to make up with neighbors.’ That was the end of the meeting.
P.S. Latest: the $400,000 lobbyist fee was put up for Ukraine by… Canada.
So, why did Trump agree to receive Klimkin? It’s 2-fold:
1. To appease Russia-hating MSM, hawks in Congress and all over US, who’d immediately jump on it: why is he talking to Lavrov, but not to Ukraine FM?
2. To deliver the message, understood by those who need to understand it: US is preparing to disengage from Ukraine. And if Kiev doesn’t want to be left entirely in the cold, it needs to toe the line and fulfil the unfulfillable Minsk agreements.
In fact, a proof of the slow unraveling of the disastrous US – Ukraine entanglement is already here: US Congress voted to slash American financing of Ukraine, including military financing, by 70%. As a special provision, the document stipulates that whatever financing will still be provided, it cannot be used to finance the regiment Azov and other ukro-nazi ragiments and battalions. The slow squeezing of the hard-core Ukraine Nazis and radicals has begun.
This is only the beginning – more to come between 2017 and 2018!

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

P.S. There is one more important reason May 2 was chosen for Merkel’s visit. On May 2 people in Odessa and all over the world commemorated the 3rd anniversary of the Odessa tragedy. Per reports, ahead of May 2 Poroshenko was in a frantic state, admonishing his law enforcement to make absolutely sure no ukro-nazis attack citizens attending the commemorative events. Such attacks are a regular occurrence in today’s Ukraine.
Let me reveal to you what went on behind the scenes: Poroshenko and Kiev were warned by Germany to make sure nothing happens that could look bad for Merkel during her Russian visit. Any violence against peacefully mourning citizens would confirm that Kiev junta is a terrorist regime. If any provocation took place in Odessa, Putin would have a terrific opportunity to rub Merkel’s nose in it.
Therefore, by choosing May 2, Putin allowed the people of Odessa to mourn and commemorate their friends and family in peace.
ODESSA REMEMBERED – May 2, 2014 3rd anniversary:
Read my posts:
LADA RAY SAYS: Dear readers, the referenced article is fake news and lame propaganda. And it’s written with an indecent kind of glee, which attests to a low calibration of the ‘journalists’ behind it.
The real truth:
Crimean power now is already enough to sustain the needs of citizens, plus the present tourism volume, which is going up and has reached 6-7 million guests a year. There were severe power shortages after the Ukraine ukro-nazis and Crimean Tartar Mejlis terrorists blew up powerlines to Crimea in December 2015. This left 2.5 mln people without power and heat for two weeks during winter.
I don’t recall the ‘liberals’ and ‘humanitarians’ in the West expressing indignation over such terrorism, helping alleviate the Crimean humanitarian catastrophe, or protesting the actions of their puppet Kiev regime.
Russia quickly built the underwater ‘power bridge’ to Crimea, consisting of four bundles of power lines and telephone cables. Russia quickly delivered additional power generators (incidentally, with Chinese help). Also, Crimean old power stations have been revamped and expanded. As a consequence, power shortages are completely gone.
However, there is a truth to this: more power is needed and the new local power stations must be built… in order to grow and expand tourism to Crimea. This is the main developmental goal for the peninsula. Crimea has the capacity to receive over 10 million tourists per year, but under Kiev it only was able to receive a fraction of this number. During Soviet times the annual inflow was 10 million and above. During the 25 years of Ukraine ‘independence’ under Kiev regime Crimea turned into a pale, fledgling copy of its former flourishing self. When the neglected Soviet infrastructure has been refurbished, currently constructed new infrastructure is fully up and running, and additional power plants are built, Crimea will get back to the Soviet tourism numbers. Most likely, those numbers will be exceeded within several years.
The new power plants are a strategic investment in Crimea’s future economy.
Sure, it’s hard to disagree with this statement: the West will do absolutely everything to sabotage Russia and Crimea. That said, the Crimea power plant ‘turbine situation’ is a storm in a teacup. It’ll be resolved easily and soon. Won’t say how, so some potentially unfriendly forces who may read this don’t have time to sabotage it.
Let’s never forget that fake news is the new chosen weapon in the global info war against Russia
I basically predicted, or perhaps rather preempted, this would happen when I wrote the following pieces in 2014, 2015 and 2016. There was no term fake news yet – I called this phenomenon ‘hoaxes’ and ‘targeted info dumps.’
If you haven’t yet, do read these three pieces! If you have read them, it’s useful to refresh your memory!
Weapons of info war
There is an all out info war against Russia. Ukraine and other E. European ‘countries,’ such as the Baltics and Poland, are at the forefront of this info war. Ukraine and others’ ministries of propaganda spread fake news about ‘protests’ in Russia, ‘hunger and shortages’ in Donbass and Crimea. Western publications happily parrot all this. Western sources are routinely caught quoting obscure Ukrainian publications, known for spreading hoaxes, fake news and targeted info dumps. No facts are checked.
Please be careful what you read and whom you trust. Many so-called ‘alternative’ publications are as, or even more, guilty of spreading fake news and lies! I warned my readers about this growing problem as early as in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 1, as well as in other above-referenced articles. Now, in 2017, I see that many people finally began talking about the fake news problem. I recommend my above-linked articles as eye-opening reads to avoid falling for it in the future.
The truth about Crimean Bridge
The above-referenced article was a very clear example of the fake news at work. Another such example is fake news about The Crimean Bridge. I’ve heard lots of fake news originating from Ukraine and supposedly Russian ‘opposition’ sources, such as Navalny, who in fact are on the payroll of Washington. These fake news contended that Russia is lying and that no Crimean Bridge is being constructed as it’s an impossible engineering feat; that all the money has been stolen; that Crimea will always remain a hostage of Ukraine… This usually goes accompanied with fake pics and videos. It appears that even the Western fake news propaganda didn’t so much fall for it. The reason is simple: any satellite footage will prove these fake news wrong. Therefore, the Crimean Bridge in the West is met with a stony silence, accompanied with futile attempts at anti-Russian sanctions.
The truth is, The Crimean Bridge is being built well ahead of schedule and it will soon alleviate the transportation pressure on the peninsula. Another investment in the bright future of Crimea it has been dubbed ‘The Construction Project of the Century.’ It is a rare engineering feat indeed.
There were many famous attempts to build a bridge from mainland to Crimea in different eras: by Russian Tsars, Stalin and even Hitler during WWII. All had failed. The stories are fascinating and I’ll tell them to you in a future book. This is the first time such bridge will become a reality – and what a reality it will be soon!
The Crimean Bridge (The Kerch Bridge – RUS: Kerchenskiy Most) is coming up at a lightning speed – drone footage:
Crimean bridge will look like this when completed – RT projection:
Crimean Kerch Bridge is a bridge between Mainland Russia and the Crimean Peninsula, built between the Azov and Black Seas – panoramic view.
Recall that we discussed how a country’s expanding Life Force is measured by how many strategic mega-infrastructure projects a country can pull off at the same time. Recommended read: Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force? (US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine, Syria)
Lots of exciting and fascinating stuff is happening in and around Crimea. I’m sure in the future we’ll talk more about the Crimean Bridge and all things Crimea!
Ukraine starts energy blockade of Donbass, but Crimea volunteers to help
On another note, two days ago Ukraine has disconnected electric power supply to Lugansk Republic (LPR). Lugansk is now experiencing power shortages, much like Crimea did in 2015. Donetsk (DPR) power lines from Ukraine are still working, however, it is expected that Kiev will turn off the electric power to Donetsk as well.
In this situation, Crimea has volunteered to share its know-how in dealing with energy blockade by Kiev. It is expected to dispatch to Lugansk and Donetsk those surplus portable emergency generators Russia had purchased to save the people of Crimea in 2015.
Why did Kiev disconnect power to LPR? After recent blockade by ukro-nazis of Donetsk and Lugansk coal, Kiev ‘discontinued’ purchases of the Donbass coal. As a result of this new stupidity by Kiev junta, Ukraine’s own power stations and industrial giants are going cold one after another. Kiev is quickly losing what little industrial base it had left after 2014 coup. Let’s recall what I discussed in other Ukraine articles: the energy grid and industrial production of Ukraine was built by the USSR as one integral system, and Donbass was part of this big system. The power plant located on Ukrainian side that used to send energy to Lugansk in exchange for coal and a hefty payment is down to 1 month or so in coal supplies, and prospects for more coal are very dim. By not delivering energy to LPR, the power plant may survive a month or two longer. But that’s all the time it has: after that it will go cold, with workers losing their jobs.
What will Kiev’s energy blockade of Lugansk and Donetsk achieve? Nothing, except irrevocably distancing DPR and LPR from Ukraine and expediting the republics’ integration into Russia. Crimea has already announced that it’ll help the break-away republics achieve this goal.

Odessa, monument to city founder, Russian empress Katherine the Great. Part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Read more in BLACK SEA GAMBIT
April 10th is widely celebrated in Odessa as “Den’ Osvobozhdenia” – “the Day of Liberation.” In reality May 9 (Victory Day) is more widely celebrated. But at one point, after Ukraine separated from Russia and began its slide towards rabid Russophobia and fascism, holidays such as February 23 (Soviet Army Day) and April 10 became the defiance outlets of sorts, gathering huge crowds in the absence of any other legal means of protest.
On April 10, 1944, Soviet Army liberated Odessa from the Romanian-German Nazi occupation lasting 30 months. Before that, the city endured an excruciating battle and long blockade perpetrated by 11 joint Romanian and German divisions. Only 4 Soviet divisions, consisting mainly of marines, sailors and volunteers, many of them poorly trained and hardly armed, managed to withstand the aggressors’ attacks for months. After the city surrendered and the Romanian occupation began, thousands of guerrillas continued resistance, using the catacombs labyrinth as their shelter.
The famous Odessa catacombs run under the entire city. The reason Romanian army was so active in Odessa was simple – greed. Hitler promised Odessa together with entire Odessa Oblast, as well as other Black Sea territories, as the grand prize to Romania, in exchange for participating in the attack on the USSR.
Today Romania still licks its lips at Odessa, Pridnestrovie and Moldova. I actually can’t stop being amazed at the ungratefulness of Romanians. If not for Russia, Romania, formed only in 19th century, would not exist. Read the whole story in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Odessans are blessed with very good memory. As they say in Russia (I mean Russia in a broad sense, including Odessa, of course): ‘No one’s forgotten and nothing is forgotten.’
FLASHBACK: THIS WAS ODESSA ONLY 3 SHORT YEARS AGO!
The video below is from April 10, 2014, 70th Anniversary of Liberation. Let’s recall that the Kiev coup already took place (February 2014) and Kiev junta, supported and enabled by the West, was already established in Ukraine. On March 16, 2014 the Crimean referendum took place where people voted to become a part of Russia. Donbass was preparing for its own referendum. Odessa itself had a permanent peaceful protest tent city on Kulikovo Polie, with vast majority of Odessans supporting federalization or secession. The May 2 Kulikovo Polie Massacre didn’t happen yet – it would scar Odessa forever.
Note the enormous sea of people of all ages at the April 10, 2014 march. This was already during Kiev junta, but at the time the REAL Odesssans still felt at home in their beloved city. Ukro-nazis would swarm in later, making Odessans prisoners in their own backyard.
Also notice the kinds of flags carried by the marchers: Soviet flags, WWII Red Victory Banners, three types of Russian flags (incl. Official Russian Tricolor, Georgievsky Flags, and old-style black-gold-white flags), Russian and Soviet Navy flags, and Odessa flags with crest (red-white-yellow with anchor). Not a single blue and yellow Ukrainian flag! People chant: ‘Fascism won’t pass’ “Odessa Hero City’ ‘Out of Odessa, Bandera devils’ and Donbass, we are with you.’ And note the giant Russian flag at 4:50.
Video Odessa, sea of people on February 23, 2014: chanting ‘Fascism won’t pass,’ ‘Rossia.’
This video, which is very hard to ignore, tells us a very eloquent truth of how the people of Odessa really feel about Russia, Ukraine and their place in this world.
At the time, Odessans and many others all over Ukraine still hoped that peaceful protests could lead to change, and that ukro-nazi junta supported from abroad could be reasoned with. Only 20 odd days later the unarmed peaceful protesters at the Kulikovo Polie tent city would be ambushed by hordes of ukro-nazi militants. Thousands of well-trained and armed with bats and molotov cocktails militants would arrive from central and western Ukraine. The attackers would burn dozens of people alive inside the historic House of the Unions on Kulikovo Polie. Those who tried to escape would be killed on the spot. Many innocent bystanders would be burned and killed together with protesters.
The supposed investigation into the crimes committed on May 2, 2014 never revealed any true facts, nor anyone was placed under arrest, despite many witness testimonies, videos and photos of perpetrators. Independent investigations have established that the commander of the ukro-nazi attackers was Andriy Parubiy, current Speaker of the Ukraine Rada (parliament). And the West, as always, looks the other way.
For full details of the May 2 tragedy and more, see my May 2, 2016 Odessa Report: Under Foreign and Nazi Occupation.
Also, for telling contemporary realities, intel, analysis and predictions for Odessa, Moldova, Pridnestrovie and northern Black Sea, read EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Also see my 2013 articles with lots of Odessa pics (these are pre-Kiev junta, it’s all positive and nice, but you’ll see that I’ve already had a premonition of things to come):
After May 2 massacre Odessa was in shock, but this city is nothing if not resilient. Despite terror, Odessans continued coming out to have their voices heard.
This is Odessa on April 10, 2017. Many people are scared, but some still come to the sacred spot, the Eternal Flame at the Alley of Slava (translated more or less as Glory). On the video below, I’d like you to notice a few things:
1. How nice the Alley is. I remember it as a beautiful spot, with a wonderful panoramic view of the Black Sea and surrounded by an old, peaceful park.
2. Most people are older because it’s very dangerous for those who are young and working to show their faces at such event.
3. People sing Russian songs, such as Katyusha and Sacred War. They chant: ‘Out of Odessa, Bandera devils,’ ‘Odessa – the Hero City,’ “Donbass we are with you,’ ‘Fascism won’t pass.’ But they are forbidden from carrying any symbols, such as Victory Banner or Georgievskaya Lenta.
4. There are paid ukro-nazi militants acting as provocateurs all over the place. Their goal is to start fights, to provoke people and police. Police, thankfully, has been acting professionally and several ukro-nazis were detained.
5. At one point an ukro-nazi provocateur who’s sticking his camera into people’s faces asks repeatedly, ‘Who does Crimea belong to?’ People try to ignore him, but he won’t leave. Finally one brave woman says, ‘To Russia, of course.’
At one point during the event (not on this video) ukro-nazis were chanting, “Bandera will come and restore order,” and “Kill the Russians.” (Stepan Bandera: Hitler collaborator, ukro-nazi ideologist, who’s dead since 1940s.) In other words, these are just your regular fascist terrorists supported, as usual, by Western governments.
6. Tensions are at all time highs. The explosion is coming. If anyone for a moment thought that Ukraine could survive indefinitely as one state ruled by oligarch, ukro-nazi and foreign interests, think again. It won’t happen – it’s only a matter of time.
7. Also notice the marked difference: Odessans are dressed colorfully, while ukro-nazis are all dressed in black (sometimes, black and red).
Video: Odessa, April 10, 2017
8. Last but not least, notice that ukro-nazis are EXCLUSIVELY very young people. Remember this detail, it is very important and symptomatic of what is happening around the world! I’ll explain what this means in one of the future webinars!

Grace and Humanity under fire
The terrorist act in St. Petersburg Metro reportedly took 14 lives and injured a large number of people.
The bombed train Driver 1st Class Alexandr Kaverin (Машинист петербургского метро Александр Каверин) received much praise and became an instant celebrity after he reacted correctly and quickly in the face of danger. He managed to take the train out of the tunnel filled with smoke and drive it to the next station. Per reports, his actions saved many lives.
Also received commendations and state awards: Metro inspector who discovered the second bomb at another station Ploszhad Vostania «Площадь Восстания». The second bomb was found in the fire extinguisher at that station. Due to the inspector’s quick actions it never went off. Another award was given to the station manager on duty, who prevented panic and organized the orderly evacuation of passengers.
Account of the event by salt-of-the-earth hero, Metro Train Driver Alexandr Kaverin:
“I heard a loud pop and train stopped in the tunnel. Smoke was filling the tunnel. There was no panic, but passengers initially gave conflicting accounts of what happened.
However, we managed to determine the real cause of emergency within one minute. We lucked out: the train stopped near tunnel exchange. After my emergency signal 3 other Metro employees quickly arrived at the scene and we were able to determine what happened.
After that, I tested the train and determined that movement was not impeded. Made decision to drive to the station. I’m not a hero, just acted according to instructions. We had terror acts before this. Some very smart people wrote our emergency instructions.
When we arrived at the station all doors opened right away, except the doors in the bombed car, which were jammed. I want to thank my train passengers: those who got out didn’t leave but began helping to pry the doors open, they basically had to tear and break these doors to help the victims inside.”
Video with awards and hero train driver interview (Rus):
After the explosion the emergency protocol was triggered and all Metro stations were shut down as the search for any potential explosives was underway. Metro closure was tough for the city of 5 million.
After the word of the bombing got out, private drivers and cabbies from all over the city flocked to the site. Not to make money of the tragedy, no. They offered free rides to those in need. City gas stations chipped in by offering free gas to drivers who took stranded passengers home for free.
Today near Red Square: huge crowd of Muscovites gathers to pay tribute to St. Petersburg bombing victims:

And in the midst of all this, GERMANY, AND SPECIFICALLY BERLIN, SHOWED ITS TRUE COLORS! I should qualify that it is the government of Germany and of Berlin, and Merkel personally who showed their true colors.
If you recall since day one I said Merkel was damaged goods and predicted sh was not to be trusted. Back in 2014 I received got backlash for it, with Europeans arguing with me. I’ll tell you more about Merkel’s future soon – stay tuned!
Hypocrisy: traditionally, in solidarity with terror attacks victims, the Brandenburg Gate would be lighted with colors of a country where a terrorist act had occurred. It had been previously lighted with the French flag after Paris attacks, Belgian, Israeli, Turkish, American flag (Orlando attack), etc.
When St. Petersburg attack took place – no reaction, NOTHING, Zero! Despite citizens’ demands, Berlin mayor refused to light the gate with the Russian flag colors, thus showing German govt’s and Merkel’s true colors (as if it was a secret before).
To the credit of Berliners, they’ve displayed a small replica of the Brandenburg Gate and painted it the colors of the Russian flag.
This video is a translation of the German alternative journalist’s rant about this shameful behavior, called, ‘Brandenburg Gate, show the colors of humanity.’ Note, on thumbnail you see Brandenburg Gate painted the colors of the Russian flag – this is a fotoshop done in protest by German activists. In reality, the Brandenburg Gate remains IN THE DARK.
I calibrated St. Petersburg as one of the cities I selected for my Earth Shift Report 17 Quality of Life Geo Calibrations study, and it turned out to be one of the highest calibrated and desirable major cities on the planet! This is despite harsh winters.
Much of the high calibration of St. Pete undoubtedly comes from its amazing culture and unparalleled beauty. But as we have seen, it also comes from the high quality of its citizens and their grace in the worst circumstances imaginable.
St. Pete is still a Hero City, even if it’s not called Leningrad any more.
During WWII, the Hero City Leningrad experienced the most brutal in human history siege, perpetrated against it by German Nazis, resulting in mass starvation and genocide, and costing 650,000 civilian lives. But it never surrendered and it was never taken by the enemy.

READ RELATED: St. Petersburg Metro Bombing Was a Message for Putin
My deepest condolences to the city of St. Petersburg and all victims of the Sennaya Ploschad Station Metro Bombing!
The most important thing to understand is that this is NOT a coincidence! The immediate ‘verdict’ on the Internet and SM has been that’s it’s ISIS. But let’s look at the facts!
The facts are a stubborn thing. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Putin – Lukashenko St. Petersburg meeting and St. Pete Metro bombing are two links of the same chain!
And here’s the chain in question:
1. An ISIS terrorist would stick out like sore thumb in St. Petersburg. But ukro-nazis or SBU operatives from Kiev or Western Ukraine would blend right in. SBU is Ukraine intelligence, which has been trained, supervised and financed by CIA since at least 2014.
Since Putin has outplayed the Kiev junta on so many fronts, it is a lot more plausible that this is what happened. And it hits so much closer to home.
2. Multiple terror plots and subversive groups from Ukraine have been neutralized in Russia, including Crimea, Moscow and other regions, in 2016 and 2017.
One terror act unfortunately succeeded: the downing of TU-154 near Sochi, when all on board died, including 68 artists from the famed Alexandrov Red Army Choir and famous humanitarian Dr. Liza.
Certainly, there is also an escalation of Islamist terror activity in Chechnya and N. Caucasus. However, all of these events are related.
Related to the Russian terror plots are also the killings of LDPR commanders and leaders in 2016-17.
3. Russian ‘anti-corruption’ protests headed by Navalny took place just a week ago, the previous Sunday. One day prior to that, on Saturday, similar protests, with very similar slogans, took place in Belarus. Although organizers (often hidden) pretended that it was all spontaneous and unrelated to each other, there are very clear signs of coordination across borders. No doubt Russian and Belorussian protests were coordinated.
What is interesting is the incredibly high level of sophistication in the protests organization. The grounds were prepared for at least months prior. Lukashenko’s mistakes were skillfully used in Belarus. In Russia the dislike of PM Medvedev was equally skillfully used. The story of his supposed billions and Tuscany vineyards was invented and made into a documentary by Navalny, making sure it went viral on social media. Social media was in a very sophisticated way used to appeal to the young crowd and to entice young people to come out by the promise of big bucks and mischief with no repercussions.
To organize all this someone had to work for at least months, possibly longer. Most importantly, someone had to shell out quite a bit of cash, because protests and color revolutions don’t come cheap.
Participants of the Russian protests, very young people, some of whom were barely 16-17 years of age, were caught on camera (video was posted on YT) sharing how they must make sure they get arrested during the Sunday protest because those who get arrested will get $10 thousand Euros, plus legal help and possible trips to the West.
Other young delinquents were caught on camera having this dialogue:
‘Coming tomorrow to the protest?’
‘What’s it about?’
‘No idea, but it’s an opportunity to beat up cops.’
Who promised them this kind of payday for causing trouble? The usual suspects: Soros, Clinton Foundation, CIA. I would also include here UK, Poland, Germany and Brussels/EU. In what configuration – that’s a separate discussion. It’s roughly the same entities who have financed other color revolutions and mayhem globally.
The name of ex-oligarch Khodorkovsky has also surfaced in connection with the organization of these ‘protests’ (see this post’s comment section for intel from Nemo!). Khodorkovsky, of course, is a long-standing client of the CIA. I have followed Khodorkovsky for a long time, and as many of you know, he served as prototype for the character of the oligarch Konukovsky in my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. As I see it, Khodorkovsky lately also became a client of the CIA’s secret EU leg: the German intelligence (let’s be honest, that’s what the German intelligence has turned into).
4. Recent Eurovision scandal was supposed to be a humiliation for Russia, but it backfired. Kiev banned Russian participant Yulia Samoylova’s entry into the country, thus illegally banning her from participation in the Kiev Eurovision 2017. The scandal took a humiliating turn against Kiev: in response contest organizers threatened to ban Ukrainian participant from the contest taking place on her native soil, and possibly even moving the contest to another country.
Recent killing of ex-Russian Duma Deputy Voronenkov in Kiev is a provocation also directly related to all other events described here.
5. During 2016-2017 in Russia we have seen a large number of terror groups – some related to IS and Islamist terror cells and others related to Kiev – being apprehended. These are shown on Russian news almost weekly. Many terror acts were prevented. All in all, the actions of FSB have so far proven effective.
6. In the run-up to Belarus protests multiple terror plots and various wannabe terrorists were apprehended in Minsk and on the border. One of the attempted terror plots was almost bizarre: a Jeep carrying ingredients to mak explosives tried to break through the border from Ukrainian side. The Jeep was chased by law enforcement, but it managed to get pretty deep into Belorussian territory before most people inside were apprehended. One person managed to escape. How dangerous was the one who escaped? Were the others just patsies, meant to divert attention, while the only important person went free? What kind of explosives escaped with him and what was his ultimate destination?
The border between Russia and Belarus is very transparent. Recently Lukashenko announced a visa-free regime for 80 countries, without coordinating with Russia. This silly decision was a big part of the recent spat between Russia and Belarus.
Clearly, Belarus isn’t a high-profile target, but its value is in it being an inside track into Russia. Between Russia and Belarus there is no border; therefore, it is very easy for a determined terrorist group to infiltrate through Belarus.
7. Lukashenko blinks: Belarus has become a weak link in Eurasian stability and security system when Lukashenko recently initiated a conflict with Russia regarding power and gas pricing and sought to blackmail Russia by suggesting Belarus would re-orient towards the West and Middle East, distancing itself from Russia.
My diagnosis is that it’s largely a bluff by the starved for attention Lukashenko, who wants preferential treatment and who wants to milk Russia as much as possible. There is also a significant economic component in Lukashenko’s outburst: Belarus is cash poor and debt ridden and in need of a postponement of debt repayment. All this, coupled with the worsening economic situation and approaching elections makes Lukashenko nervous. After all, the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle’ was achieved on the account of Russia sharing practically free gas and other privileges with Belarus. Recently Russia began demanding that Lukashenko pays for at least some of the gas.
At the same time, I do not see Belarus drifting towards Ukraine scenario and Kiev-style Maidan any time soon, as I explained and predicted in ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? (WITH BONUS: LUKASHENKO’S BLUFF).
Regarding Lukashenko: his act gets old and tiring. He will paint himself into a corner soon. His days as president may be numbered. But the geo-chess master acts on his own time and when no one is expecting it. Putin’s move will come, but only when he’s ready.
More predictions on the future of Belarus and Lukashenko in my future book, THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
8. Russian Presidential Election cycle has begun. Everything that’s happening is a rehearsal and preparation in order to see if Russia can be destabilized enough to prevent Putin’s re-election. But they know it’s a very tall order. Therefore, the goal is at least to bring him into the next term as weakened as possible, with maximum number of discontented citizens. If Russia and Putin blink (which won’t happen) they also hope to begin a real color revolution and civil war in Russia, turn one half of the population against another, like in Ukraine, and destroy everything that has been re-built between 2000 and now. But as I said, this won’t happen.
This is a very old tried-and-true technique of divide and conquer, character assassination and sabotage. It was previously reserved for Russia, the arch-enemy of the West, and those countries the West wanted to subdue. But today, we are experiencing the Great Earth Shift when the old matrix is dissolving and the shoots of the new are trying to get through the concrete.
Today this technique is used just as much in the West by the same neo-liberal globalist cabal against those who do not toe the agenda. Examples are anti-globalists such as Trump in the US and French presidential candidates Marine Le Pen and François Fillon, who are being openly sabotaged. More in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER.
WHY PUTIN – LUKASHENKO MEETING IN ST. PETERSBURG COINCIDED WITH METRO BOMBING:
Putin meets with Lukashenko in St. Petersburg, 4/3/17:
By provoking multiple loud public scandals with Russia regarding gas and oil pricing, diminished oil quotas, loan repayments and open border dispute Lukashenko and his advisors were banking on the fact that Russia already has a huge problem with Ukraine. Therefore, they reasoned, Russia would not risk escalating this argument with Belarus, fearing a loss of an important partner. This calculation was naive at best, which was quickly demonstrated by the following events. Life promptly showed Lukashenko what happens when Russia withdraws support.
To be sure, both Russia and Belarus lose when they argue. The problem is Belarus and Lukashenko personally lose a lot more.
A similar scenario occurred to Turkey and Erdogan after the downing of the Russian Su-24 and Russia’s subsequent withdrawal of Erdogan’s support and all business with Turkey. Within the short several months, this weakened Turkey to such degree that Erdogan almost lost his life in the military coup and much of the Turkish economy dried up. For detailed analysis and predictions read ESR 13: ERDOGAN’S WAR.
Having gone too far in his spat with Russia, and also having made some serious mistakes internally, Lukashenko now has seen how shaky his position would be without the support of Russia. After Putin and Medvedev’s cold shoulder, after Belarus protests and a threat of being expelled from Eurasian Union, he had to quickly backtrack, humble down and sit down to talk with Putin.
The meeting place: St. Petersburg. The meeting time: Monday, April 3, 2017.
It is clear to me that a great deal of manipulation has gone into convincing Lukashenko to act as a provocateur in Russian-Belorussian relations. Also, a great deal of effort and international coordination went into organizing the aforementioned Russian and Belorussian protests. Much of YouTube, Twitter and various other SM outlets were deeply involved.
Specifically in Russia the average age of participants is highly suspect. What comes to mind when a crowd of 16-17 years-olds marches through Moscow center, stopping traffic and picking fights with cops, while chanting, ‘Putin (or Medvedev), where is our money?’ (This was an actual slogan of the Russian protests, as seen on TV. Others were even more silly and bizarre, some reminding painfully of the Kiev coup and Ukrainian Euro-Maidan.)
‘Putin (or Medvedev), where is our money?’ Greed is a determining factor. Whose money are they really after? Who really pays?
Make no mistake, no matter who sits in the White House or calls the shots in the EU, billions continue being spent on subverting the vulnerable among the young generations of Russians and Belarussians. After all, it seems to have worked in Ukraine; they hope it’ll work in Russia and Belarus.
These billions are being spent by the same parties as before, and in this regard, absolutely nothing has changed. These are same sources that subverted Ukraine, and that attempted unsuccessful color revolutions in Armenia and Kazakhstan. (See ESR9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN & Armenia).
This is pre-election year in Belarus. More importantly, this is pre-election year in Russia. The activation of destabilization attempts will continue.
The original grand plan, conceived many years ago, but implemented throughout the 90’s and 2000’s was to break apart Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. Part of the plant pertaining to Ukraine nearly succeeded due to Kiev Maidan.
But it proved much harder to break up Russia and Belarus. Yet even this could have succeeded due to Lukashenko’s mistakes. After Lukashenko’s public tantrum and threats to turn away from Russia towards the West, it was assumed that the breakup was underway. And it would have been, if not for Putin.
The attempt to break apart Russia and Belarus has a clear ultimate goal to weaken and disorient The Great Balancer. Russia, The Great Balancer, is presently rebalancing the severely lopsided world towards a better balance between physical/material/personal/self-serving energy on one hand and spiritual/collective/service-to-others energy on another. This is an attempt to stop this rebalancing, or at the very least, to slow it down.
Who benefits? Very simply: the collective West, the old neo-liberal globalist bankster, pero-dollar dominated system that made the West at large rich at the expense of others. To be sure, there are many new and healthy shoots in the West. They will eventually come through and bear fruit, but for now the old is still stronger.
Belarus is playing a very important role in the work of The Great Balancer; it is a part of the Great Balancer structure. Russia is weaker without Belarus, but Belarus cannot survive without Russia.
Has Lukashenko finally got it? After all elaborate and sophisticated preparations, after all indications that a rift between Russia and Belarus is taking place, suddenly, Lukashenko backpedals and Putin meets him in St. Petersburg. They announce that energy and border control disputes are being successfully resolved.
The terror act preceding or coinciding with this kind of meeting signifies a warning. This is a message for Putin, and by association, for Lukashenko. It is a threat issued to Russia, Belarus, and their leaders.
Make no mistake, a response will follow.
Incidentally, during the St. Pete meeting Putin said an interesting thing: Russia and Belarus are preparing a unified energy grid. This ultimately means that the two countries are getting closer, NOT further apart. This is the beginning of Putin’s response.
The game is afoot.

For the second day the horrific cannonade is continuing, as the missiles and arms stored at Ukraine’s largest arms depot in Balakleya, Kharkov Oblast, mass explode. Allegedly the wholesale destruction of the largest storage of offensive weapons in Ukraine began as a result of a fire. Ukraine military is being accused of creating the catastrophe.
Over 20 thousand people have evacuated from the nearby city of Balakleya. Locals continue fleeing in haste. Casualties are unknown, being hushed up by Ukraine authorities.
The infamous Balakleya arms depot stored weapons used to kill the people of Donbass. Fewer weapons left in Ukraine means fewer deaths in Donetsk and Lugansk. Among weapons stored at this facility were the feared Tochka-U and Grad missiles, which Kiev army had unleashed on LDPR.
The video below is a good quality compilation of footage shot from various vantage points. These are all eyewitness videos by locals from surround residential areas. At one point in the video you can see a stream of cars fleeing the exploding city.
In the end of the video, a male voice can be heard saying, ‘We must leave this country. This is the only correct solution.’
Radiation disaster in the making!
As a side note, the intel I receive is that Kiev army experiences a huge shortage of tanks and armored vehicles to attack Donbass.
To compensate for that, Poroshenko ordered to retrieve the old tanks and military vehicles once used by the USSR in Chernobyl remedial efforts and abandoned inside radioactive zone. Thousands of radioactive vehicles have been stored there. Now these are being repurposed by Kiev. Some are used as scrap, melted to manufacture new weapons; others are fixed up and sent straight to Donbass. Reportedly, a large percentage of the Kiev army ATO soldiers now suffer from radiation poisoning. Of course, the real condition and percentages of those affected are hushed up.
The newest worrying development: it appears Kiev decided to do the unthinkable – build a radioactive barrier between LDPR and Ukraine. Witnesses have been posting videos of Ukraine army hauling radioactive vehicles from Chernobyl and dumping them on the front line between LDPR and Kiev-controlled side. This includes heavy trucks and other machinery used by the USSR in Chernobyl remedial efforts. The result may be disastrous. All that radioactive machinery is moved through Ukraine countryside and cities, then maliciously dumped in E. Ukraine fields, possibly close to where people live and grow crops.
I want to reiterate and expand on my 2014-15 analysis and predictions for Ukraine:
The remnants of Ukraine, once a peaceful place I used to know years ago, is continuing on the road to self-destruction. I am sorry to say that for the territory we so far still call Ukraine, the worst is still to come.
Ukraine, formed as an integral part of the USSR, was always an artificial entity consisting of incongruent and mismatched parts. It could only exist in peace and prosperity under the strong umbrella and guidance of Russia and as part of a unified Russian state. Having acquired independence, it couldn’t deal with it. The breakup and rethinking of the future direction became unavoidable.
It would have been a lot better if the process of the breakup was peaceful and reasonable. However, the process of rethinking of the future of this South-Russian territory has to happen, whether we want it or not.
In less than 10 years time the name Ukraine (Ukraina) will become obsolete. It’ll happen gradually, probably several years into the future. Instead Novorossia and Malorossia will re-emerge, along with other long forgotten names, such as Tavria, Galitsia and Carpathian Rus. Most or all of these territories will rejoin Russia either as parts of Russian territory or closely-associated states.
I have extensively discussed Ukraine, Donbass, the unfolding disintegration and future prospects of these territories in several written Earth Shift Reports: ESR2, ESR3, ESR6 and ESR8.

Ex-Russian Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov murdered in the center of Kiev
Earlier today, March 23, 2017, ex-Russian Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov was gunned down in the center of Kiev, next to the luxury hotel Premier Palace. Voronenkov died on site. His bodyguard was wounded by the gunman but was able to shoot him in return. According to first info from Kiev, both wounded gunman and bodyguard were taken to the hospital.
The curious thing was that the name of the killer wasn’t made public for a while, probably because the Kiev authorities didn’t know how to explain that he was a member of Ukraine’s National Guard. Initially, it was only said that he was from Dnepropetrovsk Oblast. Later it became known that this member of the armed forces of Ukraine was also a serial criminal with several violent crimes to his name. There are many questions here, such as: how was he allowed to join National Guard with this kind of history?
Update 3/25/17: Predictably, Kiev authorities announced that Voronenkov killer died in the hospital and that interrogating him wasn’t possible.
Russia 24 video detailing Voronenkov killing:
Voronenkov and Maksakova – fugitives from justice
In the past two years a very thorough public investigation of alleged corruption and irregularities in the medium-to-high echelons of the Russian power has been conducted. It is safe to say that the majority of charges announced publicly in 2015-16 were preceded by several years of investigations and data collection. As a result of probes, several regional governors were fired, resigned or jailed, major fraud and embezzlement schemes were uncovered, certain high profile police and Minister of Economy Ulyukaev were sent to prison.
This major op was preceded by a complete restructuring and overhaul of Russian police and the creation of RosGvardia (equivalent of National Guard).
Several months ago Denis Voronenkov and his wife, Maria Maksakova, both ex-Russian Duma deputies, fled Russia. The details are a bit sketchy, but my intel says that Voronenkov was under investigation on charges related to financial fraud and embezzlement. Voronenkov, ex-deputy for the Communist Party (oh, irony) was allegedly implicated in certain racketeering and shady business dealings since 1990s, and left behind a string of enemies. His wife Maksakova is an ex-deputy from a different party and ex-singer. She may have been involved with his schemes, although it doesn’t appear she was under investigation.
Several months ago, Voronenkov and Maksakova suddenly disappeared and re-emerged in Kiev. Their hasty retreat from Russia was a total surprise for their friends and colleagues.
The way I see it, someone tipped them off about secret FSB investigation and they were able to escape ahead of an arrest.
In Ukraine they were gladly picked up by the Kiev junta as ‘political refugees and fighters against bad Putin.’ SBU worked with them for a while, and per extensive intel, squeezed out whatever they knew, which probably wasn’t much. Consequently, SBU lost interest in them quickly enough.
Another interesting detail: Voronenkov decided to style himself as Putin’s oppositioner and political fighter, although charges against him were criminal. Upon entry, he received Ukrainian citizenship, which automatically stripped him of Russian citizenship. He probably thought that this would protect him against any demands for extradition to Russia.
Meanwhile, his wife Maksakova never applied for Ukrainian citizenship and retained her Russian citizenship. It has also turned out that she has dual citizenship: that of Germany.
When Voronenkov and Maksakova first appeared in Kiev, a rumor floated in Ukraine’s blogging circles that they would be hyped up by Kiev as political refugees and fighters against the ‘Putin regime.’ The bloggers predicted that after SBU had utilized Voronenkov for all they could and after his notoriety in Ukraine reached its pinnacle, he would be martyred by SBU, while the blame would be put on Russia. This prediction turned out to be right on the money.
While in Kiev, Voronenkov constantly gave interviews to Ukraine MSM about “bad Russia,” persistently alleging that “any moment he could be killed by Putin.” Apparently he was not bright enough to figure out that he thus styled himself as a perfect sacrificial lamb. It was as if he painted a big target across his chest with words, “Kill me so you could vilify Russia and Putin.”
Why was he martyred now? What’s so special about this timing? And who benefits?
It is more than clear that of all parties Russia benefits the least. FSB is a million times more efficient and professional than Ukraine’s SBU. It doesn’t need to gun someone down in the middle of a street, to the accompaniment of a risky scandal. Moreover, if Voronenkov was in any way important and did indeed possess any sort of secret info, FSB could have acted right away, not months later.
Who benefits the most? It is the Kiev junta and Poroshenko. Correction, I should say: ‘who thinks they can benefit?’ because my prediction is, this false flag will backfire. There are a number of scandals exploding simultaneously in Ukraine, and they spell disaster for Poroshenko and his government.
There is a word that ukro-nazi parties and battalions threatened Voronenkov and Maksakova with retribution because they voted for Crimea’s reunification with Russia. Just imagine the irony!
For this reason it was natural to use a patsy who happens to be ukro-nazi sympathiser as a gunman.
However, the real puppet masters are in Kiev and across the big pond. The reason they needed to act quickly is banal: there are so many huge blows the Kiev junta is sustaining that they have lost any perspective and sanity, if there indeed was any.
Their masters across the ocean either left them hanging or don’t really know what to do with them. Poroshenko and Kiev government must somehow distract people in Ukraine and abroad from multiple scandals and problems.
- Blockade of Donbass, which has resulted in dozens of factory shut-downs, power shortages, unemployment and risk of nuclear power plant implosions.
- Attacks and Kiev sanctions against Russian banks.
- Return Russian ban on money transfers to Ukraine. Read my article: Lada Ray’s Ukraine Update: Russian Duma Bans Money Transfers to Ukraine.
- Russia’s recognition of LDPR passports, which is a major humiliation for Kiev. It is tremendous propaganda for LDPR and against ukro-nazi Kiev regime. Read DPR ultimatum to oligarchs: Pay taxes or nationalization. Russia recognizes LDPR passports; to introduce visa regime for Ukraine.
But there is more! Yet another reason is to distract the world, especially Europeans, from the unfolding Eurovision scandal.
Welcome to Kiev Eurovision – be sure to wear your bulletproof vest!
World’s largest song contest, Eurovision 2017, will take place in Ukraine, following the scandalous win in 2016 of a Crimean Tartar/Ukrainian singer Jamala. There had been a lot of doubt Kiev would be able to host the event adequately and on time. Yet, for political reasons European organizers allowed Kiev to go ahead with the show. I’ll leave aside the merits of Eurovision as a contest. In truth, I think it’s extremely subpar. It has also been turned into a hysterical political farce, when singers aren’t judged on merit but propelled forward or held back by politically charged juries, based on the agenda of the West.
Voices sounded in Russia for years to pull out of Eurovision; these voices were especially persistent this year. Kiev continuously threatened to ban Russian representative – in violation of contest rules. Still, Russia decided to send a singer, a young, severely handicapped woman in a wheelchair with a beautiful voice, Yulia Samoylova. Among other achievements, Yulia sang at the opening of Sochi Paralympics. Yulia may have a very short time to live and she has sacrificed a lot to prepare for the contest. For this courageous young woman this is a huge dream and only chance to participate in a major international event, something that will fill her heart with joy for the rest of her short life.
Yulia Samoylova song – Flame Is Burning (Russia) Eurovision 2017 entry
A couple of days ago Kiev announced that Yulia Samoylova is banned from Eurovision contest and from entry into Ukraine for 5 years because she recently performed in Crimea. Despite gross violation of the law, OSCE has declared they see no problem. The organizers of Eurovision are trying to bury the scandal, while Western MSM has collectively developed sudden blindness.
I’ve just recalled the out-of-this-world howling that took place before the Sochi Olympics about alleged gays’ rights violations in Russia. In response, Russians went out of their way to welcome everyone, including gays, who were parading around Sochi to the welcoming smiles of their Russian hosts.
Just imagine if a cripple in a wheelchair was denied participation in an international event in Russia. The stink from the ‘civilized world’ would have been heard for years. Here, not a single voice of any European ‘human rights’ or ‘handicapped defense’ organization. Complete silence. Where are petitions, protests and boycott of Kiev Eurovision?
In addition, Kiev is banning Armenian participant because she also performed in Crimea. Despite the attempts to hush the scandal, it seems to be growing and gathering steam, both in Ukraine and abroad. Kiev needs to distract the world from this scandal. In their mind it appears to be a good idea to kill Voronenkov and then blame it on Russia.
I promised to tell you how it would backfire. Killing someone in the very center of Kiev, where the country’s richest reside and posh hotels are located, shortly before Eurovision… Not a very good advertisement for the foreign guests. Incidentally, Premier Palace, the hotel where Voronenkov was killed, is reportedly booked by a large number of Eurovision guests and participants.
In other words, welcome to Kiev Eurovision! Make sure you bring your guns and bulletproof vests!
Why choosing Yulia Samoylova was genius
This isn’t the focus of this report, but let me just tell you briefly that choosing Yulia Samoylova for Kiev Eurovision was a stroke of genius, and I didn’t expect any less of Russia. Apart from Yulia’s obvious gift, she is a great choice because no matter what Kiev junta does, they lose. If they ban her, the aftertaste will linger for a long time, regardless of how much they try to hush it up, and the true colors of the Kiev regime will become obvious even to those in the EU who are in complete denial. This will continue the process of the US/EU distancing from Kiev, accompanied by a gradual withdrawal of support. If Yulia Samoylova is allowed to compete, the controversy created by Kiev has made her so popular that I won’t be surprised if she wins. That will be a pinnacle of humiliation for the Russophobic Kiev junta and ukro-nazis.
And last and most important reason for the Voronenkov false flag…
Trump to begin financial audit of the Poroshenko government
As predicted, Trump is sending signals that he wants to drop Ukraine like an old potato. The Kissinger Plan is in effect. Learn all about the secret Kissinger Plan in LADA RAY WEBINAR WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
EU is busy with own problems and can’t wait to take off anti-Russian sanctions. Kiev tries everything to persuade Europe to keep those sanctions for as long as possible.
How does Kiev benefit? They don’t. Kiev junta consists of petty people; they do it simply out of spite. In their small minds they must do it to keep Russia down.
This intel is from Viktoria Shilova, ex-Dnepropetrovsk deputy, leader of the all-Ukraine AntiWar movement and leader of Ukraine’s Social Party:
Trump has authorized a comprehensive audit of all those billions US spent on ‘subverting’ Ukraine. This includes whatever Nuland, Clinton, Kerry, Biden, CIA and Obama ‘invested’ in regime change in Ukraine, US taxpayer money that went to train Ukraine media, NGOs, ukro-nazi battalions in Western Ukraine, to develop anti-Russian propaganda, payoffs to politicians and military. The number being floated is about $10 billion. There is a suspicion that most of it was stolen.
Poroshenko, Kiev junta and all those who got fat on Ukraine’s tragedy know very well where this money is. They are trying very hard to distract the world and to, yet again, redirect the US and EU attention towards ‘bad Russia.’ It worked before. But this time, it will backfire.

Today Russian Duma banned money transfers from Russia to Ukraine through any banks other than Russian banks. This comes as an anticipated mirror response to 2016 ban of Russian payment systems on Ukraine territory. More details about the new law from NovorossiaVision.
Further, this move is a logical reaction to the escalating terrorism against Russian banks by Ukrainian Nazis, while the Kiev government either supports them or looks the other way.
In the past couple of weeks various ‘Ukraine patriots’ from fascist battalions, radical and ukro-nazi parties walled in, vandalized and/or looted several branches of Sberbank and four other Russian bank subsidiaries in Ukraine. Initially, most of these attacks took place in Kiev, but now they have spread throughout the entire territory.

Kiev government added oil to the fire by ‘forbidding Russian banks in Ukraine from transferring assets out of the country.’
Attacks against Russian banks were openly supported by the majority of Ukraine Rada deputies, advisor to president Poroshenko, speaker of the Rada Parubiy, interior minister Avakov. Other names implicated in attacks on Russian banks include oligarchs such as Renat Akhmetov, whose properties were recently semi-nationalized in Donetsk and Lugansk (LDPR).
A few facts:
- Officially, there are presently 3.5 million Ukrainian citizens as temporary workers in Russia. The vast majority of them send money back home as the only means for their families to survive. Now they won’t be able to do that.
- Add to that millions of Ukrainians who have permanently moved to Russia and are considered permanent residents or naturalized citizens, but who still help out relatives in Ukraine.
- Money transfers from Russia to Ukraine amount to billions of dollars annually.
- According to official data, Russian banks constitute 12% of Ukraine’s banking system, however, I seriously doubt this is a true number. It is common knowledge in Ukraine that Russian banks are considered the only honest and solvent banks on its territory. Whoever can, prefers to keep their assets in Russian banks.
- 1 million 250 thousand Ukrainians keep their money in Sberbank alone. This includes pensions, assets, credits, etc.
- After several months ago Kolomoysky drained his Privat Bank and transferred stolen customers’ assets offshore, the once Ukraine’s biggest bank was nationalized. Privat Bank customers flocked to Russian subsidiaries as the only safe banks in Ukraine.
You may ask why Russian subsidiaries didn’t withdraw from Ukraine, despite attacks? It is a tough call, but I do believe they are correct to stay. Kiev juntas and ukro-nazi regimes come and go, but the people of Ukraine remain. It is a good idea to support the decent Ukrainian citizens, despite how tough it is.
As a matter of fact, I once heard Putin personally ask Russian banks and other remaining businesses to stay in Ukraine, if possible.
However, Kiev is doing absolutely everything to chase the remaining Russian businesses away and to provoke Russia into taking some drastic return measures. If Russia withdraws as Kiev ukro-nazis insist, it will be the final nail in the coffin of poor Ukraine, as its economy dies off.
I predicted this in 2014: ‘Ukraine’s economy will be completely destroyed before a meaningful change and turnaround can occur. After that, Ukraine will turn away from the West and towards Russia.’
Kiev Euro-Maidan fought for the ‘EU dream’ – and here it is…
Ukro-nazi ‘peaceful’ protesters violently destroying what’s little left of poor Ukraine
Burning people alive in Odessa (pic of Odessa tragedy: May 2, 2014)
And attacking the people of Donbass (on pic: Ukraine army loading heavy mortars to fire at civilian populated areas of Donetsk)
In their utter stupidity, ukro-nazis are doing everything to expedite the end. Perhaps that’s a good idea, after all. In Ukraine’s case the horrible end may be better than an endless horror.
But Russia has to tread softly, carefully calculating the risks. Incidentally, EU is in the same boat in this regard. Ukraine’s complete implosion threatens both.
One of the problems is that millions of Ukrainians will flood uncontrollably into Russia (and EU). Another problem, Ukraine may become a danger to others due to 4 major nuclear power plants on its territory. And problem number three: Ukraine’s destroyed economy has to be rebuilt, but no one wants to take responsibility. Technically, those who destroyed it should be paying for reconstruction, namely Ukraine oligarchs, Soros, US, Canada, Germany, Poland and EU in general. I’d also make Nuland, Obama, Biden and their cronies pay up personally.
But in reality, as I predicted in 2014, only Russia cares what happens to Ukraine and only Russia is capable and willing to help rebuild Ukraine’s economy.
Although, per my other prediction, Putin is smart enough to make the West chip in when the time comes.
Russia is now attempting to delay this unpleasant moment of ultimate destruction of her sister-nation, suffering from an especially destructive case of temporary insanity. However, it is unavoidable. Sooner or later it’ll happen. What we have to remember is that it is darkest before the dawn. But dawn will come.

Here is an eye-witness video from YT channel, ‘The Diary of a Ukrainian in Russia.’ It’s a channel by a Ukrainian who was forced to flee his native Ukraine following 2014 Maidan and his prosecution by the Kiev junta for having a different opinion. He now lives in Moscow and posts video blog about his impressions of Russia. In this video you can see him walking around the MGU parks, plus the fireworks. Around 22 min – overcrowded Moscow Metro due to 150,000 people attending the events.
Just after 22 min. into the video he also includes some footage from his trip to Crimea last year. Off-season Crimea in September: beaches, cliffs, waterfalls, nature:

Watch the responses of the Kiev embassy worker! Then the police gets called and Ukraine diplomat tries to get Graham arrested… for filming in the street. “This is Great Britain, we have actual laws here” (well, compared to ukro-nazi Ukraine, lol).

Novorossia/Donbass and Ukraine, have been put on a back burner in the past month or two. Meanwhile, Ukraine and Donbass are about to again become headline news. Last year I wrote about the heating up events in Donbass and about my prediction that Trump is preparing to dump Poroshenko and Ukraine. As many of you know, my articles/ videos, Earth Shift Reports, Webinars and Predictions often preempt the real events by months, or even years. Those who are smart will follow me and listen carefully to what I say today, in order to be prepared for tomorrow.
Additional latest developments: 1. Huge news from DPR/LPR: Putin issued new law officially recognizing Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics passports! News 2: Ukraine is down to just a few weeks of coal reserves and the country is going into the power shutdown. Secret intel 3: Poroshenko is looking for asylum.

This is a new video released Jan. 11, 2017 by News Front, with my Eng. translation.
Dasha the dog’s story told by a female member of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s self-defence regiment:
She survived all the bombings with us. The boys from our recognizance team rescued her during a bombing somewhere near Nikishino village. She was so starved and emaciated that she couldn’t stand on her feet. We, the medics, healed her, got her back on her feet. (At that moment Dasha extends her paw to her friend, as a thank you). “She knows we rescued her.”
She was very scared at first. I printed several ads in the Donetsk paper, hoping to find her owner. No one replied.
Dasha isn’t young any more, missing some front teeth. She is a very kind dog.
“She rides with us in the Urals (military vehicles), in cars, comes to drills and even accompanies us in battle, right, Dashen’ka?”
It appears the owner escaped the bombings and left her behind. It appears he’s alive, but no one knows why he abandoned her. Maybe couldn’t fit her in the car since she is a big dog, you know how people at the time ran in panic (LR: to escape the bombings of the Kiev junta and ukro-nazis).
So, we have given her a home here and she now helps us protect Donetsk (again, Dasha places her paw on the lady to re-affirm the statement.)
That’s her life, her destiny now. Same is true for half of the dogs and cats of Donbass.
She loves to keep warm, loves to sleep on our beds, and we are glad to spoil her.
She feels the bombings coming and warns us with her behavior. “You are a good, good doggie, Dasha.”
She is big friends with our cats. Not so much with other dogs, but cats are her buddies. She is a big, intelligent dog. That’s our Dashka, ‘the dog of our regiment.’
We have lots of cats and there are also many local homeless dogs that our boys adopted. They are very helpful: as if live alarms, they warn us of upcoming attacks.
At that moment Dasha rolls on the cot, exposing her tummy.
I am posting this article today because I don’t want to leave this unfinished business for 2017. Chances are, we may still have to return to this topic in the new year. This is a 2-part post on the Tu-154 catastrophe near Sochi, on the Black Sea. In part 2 I’ll discuss my version of events and whether I believe it was a freak accident or an attack.
THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT: SHADOWS GET EXPOSED TO LIGHT
I once said ( I believe it was ESR2 or ESR3) that Ukraine was the shadow side of Russia. I didn’t want to be this right. The biggest problem is that those who do these despicable things often speak Russian as native language.
In cases like this I don’t know whether to be grateful or not for these times of the Great Earth Shift, which bring to light all the shadows, and with them, all the ugliness that has lurked underneath. Usually, such ugliness would be hiding deep within those shadows. Now, it is all exposed to light for all to see through the Internet and YouTube.
It should end in a cleansing process: we all need to know what our shadows are and how to heal them. But for the time being, it’s very hard to watch. The strong and intelligent will make the right conclusions and move forward, having learned important lessons. The weak, angry and dependent will break and blame others.
The entire planet is undergoing this cleansing process. With it comes the identity crisis. The strength, resilience and ancestral wisdom of any nation it tested in times such as these.
In the EU the identity crisis was triggered by the immigration crisis. In the Middle East – by the West’s wars and ISIL. In the US – by economy and Trump. In the Russian World it was triggered by the 2014 Ukraine coup. This latest stage of examining and dealing with the shadows is triggered by the Russian ambassador assassination and the TU-154 catastrophe.

THE BAD AND THE UGLY: 4D HYBRID INFOWAR IN FULL SWING
This post was hard to write, but it had to be done. People have to know how ugly this 4D hybrid infowar has become. There are people who have no conscience, no heart and no scruples. I have to say with a great sadness that this is the type of individuals employed by the US/West to try to undermine Russia in every way possible.Whenever I look at comments and videos on YouTube, posts and comments elsewhere, I can’s stop being amazed at how low certain humans can sink. The internet has become filled with bots, trolls, shills, liars, angry losers, and those who will post anything in order to get views and their cheap 15 minutes of fame. Some do it for views, others for kicks, and yet others for 30 pieces of silver, a few dollars, or worse – a few worthless grivnas. Or maybe they are hoping to get US or EU passports that way.
While some – like those who perished in the Tu-154 catastrophe – produce divine music, inspire and lead people, invent new useful things, unite and protect people, help the helpless and save the children, others come to this earth with the sole desire to wreak havoc and destroy. The worst thing, such subhumans destroy not only buildings and monuments, as the Kiev junta ukro-nazis do in Ukraine, or as their ISIL friends do in Syria. Structures can be rebuilt.
Worse, they target people’s memory, their souls and hearts; they try to destroy hope.
Unfortunately, a lot of sickos and shills, associated with the Russian pro-West neo-libs, as well as Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, rejoiced about the Sochi Tu-154 catastrophe.
Poroshenko’s personal advisor and other high-ranking politicians in Kiev have been publicly and with glee commenting about those who died, wishing there were more victims.
Facebook and YouTube are polluted with various channels posting mocking videos and laughing at the tragedy. Putin is blamed – what else is new. Now he personally killed the entire Red Army Choir.
One comment I noticed being posted over and over on various YT channels by some very persistent troll: turns out that Tu-154 catastrophe was the sacrifice for the Jewish Hanukkah 2016!
I won’t go through all the freaky and disgusting stuff out there. I’ll just say that there were a few ‘journalists’ in Russia who also joined in. These were of the kind I described in my previous article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations. In other words, the neo-lib types, fed by the US grants. One such woman was a wife of an ex-oligarch, ‘Russian high-society lioness’ with 200,000 subscribers on Facebook. Another man worked for the well-known, openly anti-Russian publication in Moscow; he was actually a Ukrainian, who received Russian citizenship. I’ll name neither so not to give them any inadvertent promotion. Echoing the Kiev junta pronouncements, these individual said that they weren’t sorry for the deaths of people on the plane and that it was payment for Russia’s ‘sins,’ wishing more were dead.
There were a few others who said the same. The disturbing fact was that these posts were reposted and liked many times (I strongly suspect it was mostly by Ukrainian ‘nationalists’ and ukro-nazis of all kinds – let’s recall, they all are Russian-speakers too, and often are indistinguishable from Russians).
The interesting thing is that even the majority of the pro-West neo-libs in Russia had enough sense to condemn such people. As a result of this newest faux pas, I suspect neo-libs and Kiev junta will lose even more support in Ukraine, Russia and worldwide, while Putin will gain more support.
Here is one very disgusting post about Tu-154 catastrophe on a Russian language YT channel called ‘the very juice’. The title of the video, which overflows with extreme hatred and Russophobia: “The underwater Choir of the Ministry of Defence.” And just look at that mocking thumbnail!
Perhaps it’s because of channels like this that I’m not eager to develop my YouTube channel more, although I’d like to. I don’t want my voice to drown in the chorus of these crazies and sickos.
All this may originate from Kiev junta, where they frantically invest into anti-Russian shills and propaganda. Or it can come from the Baltics and Poland, where US/Canada/Soros set up propaganda agencies to subvert as many Russians as they can. Too bad for them that there are not too many takers. Why not? For explanation, see I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations.
I’m pretty confident that much of this is done by paid shills in order to make the New Year’s (the biggest holiday in Russia) as depressing as possible for Russians. Of course, there are some totally deranged Russophobes and volunteer ukro-nazi trolls, as well.
Human mind and heart are resilient, adapting to the worst madness out of sheer necessity of survival. This is the only way the still remaining sane people in Ukraine can survive under such circumstances.
For me it’s very hard to stomach what’s going on and how far it had gone. I remember Odessa as a wonderful city, and it’s painful to think what the Kiev junta and invading ukro-nazis, aided from abroad, turned it into. Odessans created a memorial for the victims of the Tu-154 catastrophe. Ukro-nazis showed up and destroyed the people’s memorial. Despite threats, makeshift memorials for the Red Army Choir and the Tu-154 victims have shown up in various places in Ukraine.
THE GOOD AND THE LIGHT: WE MUST END IT ON A POSITIVE NOTE
Music always brought people closer together. Many in Ukraine are quite upset about the tragedy. They start remembering that they, after all, are one people and that they are destined to be together. This powerful ancestral recall is exactly the kind of thing the dark forces cannot allow to happen.
But when millions rise, the light outshines the darkness. I know, I absolutely know, this will happen in Ukraine, perhaps sooner than most realize. Recall my prediction! Ukraine turnaround: 2016-2018. 2017 will be pivotal! The shift is underway!
In Kiev people have been bringing flowers and candles to the Russian Embassy. On the video below you can see the entrance to the Russian Embassy in Kiev, which now operates with skeleton staff. After many attacks, the embassy was surrounded with two rows of barbed wire and additional iron fence. You’ll see that the barbed wire is full of flowers and people are sticking their tributes onto the fence. The sign reads: “Neither words, nor tears left to express our pain. Russia, we are with you.”
Kiev, Ukrainians mourn with Russia – the Russian embassy (Viktoria Shilova)
Russian embassy, Kiev – Head of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, Natalia Vitrenko: Condolences to our brothers and sisters, the Russian people.
Again, with a chill and horrible regret I have to point out that this video was hijacked by ukro-nazis. Vitrenko is always nice, rational and polite. All she says is how sorry she is and what a terrible tragedy it was. Yet there are tons of dislikes and tons of Russophobic comments in Ukrainian and Russian under this video.
The video below is from Kharkov: “Our Brothers” – Kharkov people brought flowers and Georgievskaya Lentochkas to the Russian consulate. And again, tons of dislikes and absolutely crazy Russophobic comments under video, with lots of lies and propaganda.
The sign reads: “Kharkov mourns with you” and “RIP, and let there be joy and peace for all people.” Imagine that this kind of stuff gets dislikes!
“Братский народ”: харьковчане принесли к российскому консульству цветы и “георгиевские” ленты
My intel says that these paid shills get orders from above to attack a specific video, and they just swarm on it. Their goal is to create a picture in social media that all Ukrainians hate Russians. I have a strong suspicion that the financing comes from the same source as the $5 billion Nuland spent on subverting Ukraine. To name the obvious: US State Dept and White House, CIA and Soros.
And this is from Belarus. Lukashenko announced that state flags in Belarus will be lowered to half mast in memory of the TU-154 victims and that Belarus stands by the “Russian brothers.” The problem is that even on this video, not highly visited and not about Ukraine, you see several dislikes. Sign reads: “Russians, our brothers, we mourn with you. Sincere condolences.”
THE DANGER OF BELARUS MAIDAN
Incidentally, there is a very worrisome infiltration of ukro-nazis in Belarus, as well as various Poles and Balts, who cross the border. I sense that there is a danger of maidan and color revolution in Belarus. You recall my prediction from ESR1: Lukashenko won’t let that happen. Bu the danger exists. I thought I’d bring it up here so my readers are aware.
I have seen very alarming signals from Belarus lately. Lukashenko’s behavior is also very strange, such as skipping the EUAU economic summit in Russia, where many important decisions were adopted in his absence. The explanation for his absence wasn’t provided. Putin only said that all decisions were discussed with Lukashenko and met with his approval.
I think I may include my intel on the Belarus maidan probability in the upcoming ESR re. the Big Ukraine Shift. The shift is expected in 2017 – per my predictions and right on schedule!
JOIN ME LATER FOR PART 2 OF THIS POST:
WAS Tu-154 CATASTROPHE AN ACCIDENT OF DELIBERATE ATTACK?
Sorry everyone, a correction! I decided to postpone part 2 for after New Year’s. It’s too involved and gruesome. I don’t want to spoil the holiday. Expect it in the first few days of 2017. Along with it, I’ll have a big post on Ukraine and the 2017 forecast. Stay tuned for the 2017 offerings!

I confess, I’m tired of hearing that American billionaire Donald Trump is ‘Kremlin agent.’ This is the kind of story likely to be concocted by those who are desperate, knowing that power is slipping out of their hands. This accurately describes the situation with Clinton, Soros, and the whole neo-liberal NWO camp.
But wait! Putin and Kremlin’s outreach is far and wide. Not only Trump, CEO of ExxonMobil Rex Tillerson and Trump’s top advisors, but the rabidly Russophobic and pretty crazy Nadezhda Savchenko also turns out to be Putin’s super-spy within the Kiev ukro-nazi junta!
Recall what I predicted in
In the aforementioned May 26, 2016 report I wrote:
Savchenko’s “card will be played by Timoshenko… I’m sure others will also try to play her card. She’ll be wined, dined and courted. They’ll try to groom and mold her into something. But I think… she’ll definitely get herself in trouble within 6-7 months, or better yet, she’ll get the whole Kiev junta in trouble.
In short, a pawn such as Savchenko is very useful as a tool and bargaining chip. She doubles as an unpredictable Trojan Horse.
She’s about to fulfill her purpose. I intend to kick back and watch how Poroshenko and Kiev will manage to keep this loose cannon under control. This should be quite a show.”
We are right on schedule, people! Hardly 6 months have passed since I wrote that, and…
This began a week ago:
Nadezhda Savchenko, in defiance of Kiev, traveled to Minsk (seat of Minsk 2), where she met with leaders of DLPR Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky. During the meeting she discussed the POW / prisoner exchange. The All-for-all prisoner exchange is stipulated in the Minsk 2 peace agreement, brokered by Putin, Merkel and Hollande, but Poroshenko and the Kiev junta are refusing to abide by it.
Savchenko has tried to get it going again, achieving an understanding with Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky. In her interview she stated that when she talked to the DLPR leaders, she saw them as human beings with whom it is necessary to negotiate, not as separatists and enemies.
This has generated a storm of a scandal in Ukraine. The woman for whom the whole Ukraine and much of the EU cried just a short 7 months ago, demanding her liberation from the ‘brutal Kremlin regime,’ whom the junta elevated to the near-godly status, electing her in absentia into the Rada and Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, this same Nadezhda Savchenko was immediately branded as traitor and Putin’s agent.
Yulia Timoshenko has announced that Savchenko is expelled from her party Batkivshchina. Rada deputies are preparing to oust her from the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and from the Rada committee on national security.
Is it any surprise that Savchenko is being targeted for actually doing something sensible and positive? In the land of the blind one-eyed man is king. In the crazy, warped reality of the Kiev ukro-nazi junta, even Savchenko is the height of sense and sensibility!
In a nutshell, per Lada Ray Report: Real Reason Putin Pardoned Savchenko, the ‘sly Putin’s plan’ of sending back to Ukraine the Savchenko Trojan Horse has worked! Get your popcorn or semechki and watch what happens next. The Kiev junta implosion coming! See Predictions.

The Court in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, has made a decision that Scythian gold, which was on loan from the Crimean museums to the Dutch museums in 2013-14, belongs to Ukraine. The gold has been taken out of Dutch museums and shipped off to an unknown location in 2014, after Crimea voted to re-join Russia.
The story of the Scythian Gold (Zoloto Skifov), with pics, in my video, Crimea Scythian Gold/ MH17/ Russian Sanctions: Global Consequences (LadaRayLive 1):
Natalya Poklonskaya, ex-Attorney General of Crimea and Russian Duma Deputy, called the Amsterdam decision a thievery. She promised the decision would be appealed by the Crimean museums.
Natalya Poklonskaya: ‘Amsterdam court is hardly impartial. This illegal decision will be contested. It’s comparable to a highway robbery.’
The famous Zoloto Skifov – Scythian Gold – was discovered in 19th century by the Russian archeologists in Russian Crimea.
It has nothing to do with the present day Kiev junta and today’s ukro-nazi ‘Ukraine,’ which denies any connection to Russia. In 19th century, when the gold was dicovered, Crimea was a part of Russia. Therefore, the decision clearly has no connection to fairness and law. It is a politicized act, designed to yet again punish Russia.
The only goal such actions by the Netherlands achieve is creating an Iron Curtain and putting a damper on any sort of cultural and museum exchanges. I can’t imagine Russians ever allowing their treasures out of the country again, under such circumstances.
But I’ll tell you more: the fact that the decision has suddenly passed now – after over 2 years of delays – has the fingerprints of Soros, Obama, Clinton, Merkel, Holande and the entire crumbling neo-liberal NWO clique all over. The Scythian Gold number is one of their last-ditch, desperate, efforts to create an irreconcilable rift between Russia and various Western countries.
The same is done in a hurry by Obama/Soros/Clinton in the US. The US elites are doing everything to create as many obstacles as possible for the future US president’s attempts to work with Russia. As I predicted in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER, the goal is to tie up Trump and to put him in a straight jacket of legal traps and time-bombs, as well as distrust and sour grapes, so he would not be able to improve US-Russia relations by much, despite his best efforts (look for my upcoming Trump/Electoral College prediction video for more!).
The same process is underway in the EU. But the only thing they will be able to achieve is prolonging the agony of the Western NWO project.
AFTERTHOUGHT ON NWO, RUSSIA & PUTIN
You may recall that I first predicted the NWO collapse in the beginning of 2014 in Earth Shift Report 1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?
In it I dispelled the hoax about Putin being an NWO agent, spread around by some, so-called ‘alternative’ sources. In the same report I also stated that the NWO project is folding, being on its last legs. At the time, there was not an inkling of anyone else seeing it that way. Just the opposite: I received a million confused requests to explain whether Putin and Russia were NWO agents and when NWO headquarters would be moving to Astana, KZ.
Earth Shift Report 1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? gives you a very good idea how certain alternative sources mis-represent and mis-interpret the facts. The English-speaking ‘gurus’ are often clueless about the true nature of the ongoing Earth Shift, humanity’s realities, and the real role of Russia.
It was amusing to see how quickly after the release of Earth Shift Report 1 this hoax shyly disappeared.
In the same report I also predicted that many new, infinitely more creative lies, hoaxes and info dumps targeting Russia and Putin, would continue appearing and spreading. And that’s exactly what we are seeing today!
More on that also in:
But it’s good to know that at least some of those who were spreading Putin as NWO agent hoax in 2014, are now jumping on the bandwagon and proclaiming the end of NWO.
As for me, I promise to continue providing True & Early PREDICTIONS and TRENDCASTS for my loyal followers.

Today, December 8, 2016, the world marks 25th anniversary of the event the vast majority of the Russian World considers a tragic date. On December 8, 1991 leaders of three Slavic Soviet Republics, Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, called the Three Sisters, signed the infamous Belovezhskaya Pushcha Accords, which effectively dissolved the USSR, establishing instead the still-born Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The accords sanctified what Putin later called ‘the largest humanitarian catastrophe of the second half of the 20th century.’
The internet, Russian and post-Soviet media have been flooded with various videos and articles, which explain and judge, from their point of view, the events of that day. Many still try to come to terms and understand what happened; many have condemned this day and those who signed the breakup: Russian SSR head Boris Yeltsin, Ukrainian SSR head Shevchuk and Belorussian SSR head Shushkevich.
Between December 7 and 8, 1991, the host of the secret event, Shushkevich, received the other two at his Belovezhskaya Pushcha hunting residence. The gathering and the document signed were so hush-hush that to type up the text of the breakup agreement the trio needed to bring in a typist from the nearby village, along with her typing machine.
Shushkevich later recalled that as soon as the three shook hands, Yeltsin called the US President George Bush. He reported (!): ‘We did it. The USSR is dead.’ But none of the three called legal head of the Soviet Union, President Gorbachev.
Doing its job, Belorussian KGB found out about what amounted to treason, and reported the situation to Moscow. Gorbachev told them to await his command and do nothing. The command to arrest the conspirators never arrived. Four days later, Gorbachev resigned his post as the first and only president of the USSR.
How different the fates of the three signatories of the USSR breakup have been!
Yeltsin is no longer living; in 1999, he publicly apologized to the Russian people for everything he’d done and named Putin as his successor.
Kravchuk, using his position as the first president of Ukraine, managed to steal many millions, but nothing like today’s oligarchs. The ex-leader of the Communist Party of Ukraine, he betrayed his party and his people and turned into a prime Russophobe, creating, with Soros financing, the first version of falsified Ukrainian history – but again, nothing like today’s Kiev junta. Kravchuk continues living very comfortably in today’s ukro-nazi version of Ukraine, which he supports.
Shushkevich still lives in Belarus, hated by his country’s citizens and afraid to show up in public. Belarus President Lukashenko personally authorized the pension for Shushkevich, as ex-president of Belarus, in the amount of… $1.
The condemnation and demands for trial have been leveled against the three Belovezhskaya Pushcha signatories. The accusations of treason are also leveled against then president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbachev has been the darling of the West, rewarded many times over for his role in the USSR breakup and many disastrous for Russia political decisions. Hated by many Russians, today, he spends his time justifying his actions in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
My readership is mainly English-speaking and very international, and I love it this way! Most of my readers live in North America and generally in the West, although much of the world is represented. So, the question becomes, why should something that happened 25 years ago in the now defunct USSR be interesting to an average person, when there are crucial events happening in the US and EU as we speak: Trump election, vote recounts, Hillary scandals and the uncertainty of the Electoral College vote on December 17; various anti-EU forces may come to power in Italy and the Netherlands, Brexit may have a continuation in Italexit and more…
Considering this, why would any of my readers be interested in ‘ancient’ history? Why would anyone, apart from historians, be looking back?
Very simple: what happened in the USSR in the late 1980s-early 1990s – in other words, Russia’s past – is in fact the West’s future.
Smart people learn from the past? They learn from others’ mistakes so to avoid making their own? Yes, this is true. When you have control over your future… However, there are things in this world that are set in stone. Call it karma or destiny – the two esoteric, spiritual notions that always go hand in hand. Many are afraid of such words, believing only that which they can touch and see.
But here, on FuturisTrendcast and on LadaRay.com, we go well beyond the obvious. This is the basis for Lada Ray’s Spiritual Geopolitics and Multidimensional Universe theory. And this is how I predict the future.
I want to tell you that I agree and disagree with much of what Russian and post-Soviet analysts say about the breakup and the ’90s. I understand very well the emotional response and the desire to go back to those times, to the inviting, albeit maligned in the West, country, now remembered by many with nostalgia and longing.
However, my view is multidimensional and original. You won’t be surprised that it goes well beyond what others tell you. I’ll share my view on what really happened in the USSR in 1991, why it was pre-destined and how it is connected to today’s Earth Shift and the slow collapse of the US and EU, in the upcoming live webinars.
Due to the fact that I foresee many important changes happening in the West and worldwide in the next 3-5 years and beyond, in 2017 I am preparing some very important Lada Ray Webinars. During these live events I’ll spell out in detail what I foresee. I’ll also talk about how the USSR and Western collapses are different, and why so many gurus have been wrong about the timing, nature and details of the US and dollar collapse. Will Trump be able to prevent the collapse, and much more will be discussed.
Please stay tuned for official announcements about my webinars, to be posted in January 2017!
25th Anniversary of Destruction: USSR Breakup and its Fallout

EXCERPT 1 (ESR3) published in April, 2015
For Russia, Ukraine isn’t a far away, god forsaken land that could be thrown out and forgotten after it has been used up. It is something that is very close and important indeed. US understood that, and that was the reason they latched on to Ukraine.
Certainly, US wanted revenge for Snowden and Syria, as well as for other fiascos, such as the Georgia war and failed Iran invasion, prevented by Russia in 2008. It is also a preemptive strike against Russia and China developing the BRICS and shifting away from the dollar. Most importantly, it is the strike against the new Eurasian Union, launched on January 1, 2015, now joined by Kazakhstan, Belarus and Armenia, with Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan slanted to join soon. Despite the fact that all these countries, apart from Russia, have small economies, it is the Eurasian space that counts. Remember: “He who controls Eurasia, controls the world,” per Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Russians never made any secret of the fact that without Ukraine there can be no fully functioning Eurasian Union. Ukraine had a standing invitation to join. US had to do everything to prevent Ukraine from joining. This was the most important reason for the 2014 euro-maidan and subsequent violent Kiev coup.
USSR BREAKUP AND ITS FALLOUT
Russians also never made any secret of their firm belief that the Russian people are the biggest divided ethnicity on our planet as a result of the 1991 split up of the USSR. The split-up is widely acknowledged to be an illegal handshake agreement between Yeltsin and the two ‘leaders’ of Belarus and Ukraine. Most others, except the Baltics, which seceded before that, just followed suit.
After the hand-shake split up of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus in 1991, the initial idea was to re-create the Commonwealth of the Independent States where the republics would be able to interact and continue enjoying the same economic, cultural and political relationships as before, but voluntarily and without being obligated to do so. This was extremely naïve. In reality, once you destroy something – expect external interests and personal ambitions of local powers that be to move into the void left behind. Western interests were in immediately. Local politicians and the newly born class of oligarchs finally felt free from centralized oversight that kept them in check. Together these forces began the process of trying to separate from the “Mother Russia.” The reason for that is very easy to understand: for those who crave power at any cost, and who don’t care for the well-being of their people and country, it is better to be a big fish in a small pond than a small fish in a big pond.
Myths were invented, as we are seeing now in Ukraine, that they were separate, and never even close to Russia in any shape or form. But that wasn’t enough, since the influence and pull of the Russian and Soviet culture continued being overwhelming.
For the many people living on the territory of these republics, and not just Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians, but also members of other ethnicities who didn’t plan to break up, it became an utter shock and something they never made peace with. It became a gaping wound and severe confusion and abandonment issues, together with resentment against Russia, developed out of it. That gaping hole of confusion and resentment, plus severe money shortage as a result of the ‘90s crisis and oligarch privatization was quickly filled by the US/EU/Polish propaganda, Islamic fundamentalism, extreme nationalism, and fascism – depending on the area of the former USSR. This was in fact unavoidable.
Many have been blaming Russia for not taking care to stay in the former republics, at least informationally. But the truth is that Russia really never left the republics informationally. Russian presence remained in cultural form, primarily through TV, radio, movies and papers. Russian TV programming was, and continues being, offered in most former republics, except perhaps the Baltics, and as of 2014, also Ukraine. Even in the Baltics it hasn’t been absent entirely, since those interested could always catch some shows from nearby St. Petersburg.
And we can confidently say that the pull and influence of the Great Russian culture was, and continues being, very strong.
However, Russia, since the ‘90s was fighting demons of her own. And that generated even more confusion for the rest of the republics. All of a sudden the underpinning of their mutual relationship, that thing that united everyone: the common past and common achievements as part of the USSR, the common language and culture – suddenly all that became a big question mark as Russians themselves questioned their own heritage.
This was the incredibly fertile ground for the blossoming of the extreme and sometimes violent nationalism in each of these territories. Depending on the region, such nationalism would often turn into a violent denial of anything to do with the USSR and Russia. The best known forms of such violent ultra-nationalism are: the ‘mild euro-fascism’ of the Baltics; the ukro-nazis together with the Kiev junta in Ukraine; Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism fed by al-Qaeda and financed by US/UK/Saudis in Chechnya and Northern Caucasus; roaming bands of drug traffickers in Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, who seep through porous Afghani borders, covering up their activities with extreme Islam slogans.
Understanding all that, US targeted the vulnerabilities and vices. Confusion, resentment, greed, pride and deep-seated unresolved issues are the weapons the US uses all over the world. Ukraine proved to be an extremely easy target.
After the breakup of the USSR, the majority of Ukrainians had identity confusion, some feeling abandoned by Russia, others angry and violent, yet others trying to find an alternative vision for their country. As the dark forces in the form of oligarchs and various criminals took over, the western Ukraine nazis started a slow crawling invasion. More and more of them were moving into the traditionally Russian speaking and Russian thinking areas, such as Kharkov, Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk. Extremist Jewish organization called Chabad moved into Ukraine and started spreading its influence as well.
MSM, NGOs, school history books were changed to reflect the ‘Russia is the invader and enemy of Ukraine’ hoax. Before long, a new generation of Russia-hating Russians and Malorussians (often referred to as Ukrainians) emerged. But even that didn’t convert enough people as still in 2007 the Gallup poll indirectly confirmed that Russian was the native language and first language choice for over 80% of Ukrainians.
Still, the mass pre-programming was quietly sitting, waiting to be activated. This Manchurian Candidate programming was turned on like a switch when the signal was given. The signal was the Kiev euro-maidan and the February 22, 2014 coup. After that, the relatively reasonable Ukrainians quickly turned into Russian-speaking, Russian-culture Russophobes and Russia-bashers.
The shadow CIA chief, George Friedman (Stratfor CEO) has recently openly admitted that pitting different countries against each other with the idea of weakening other countries in order to advance US interests worldwide was the US weapon of choice. The good old divide and conquer.
TRAITORS WANTED! BIG MONEY FOR SELLING OUT YOUR COUNTRY
Next, a new class appeared in these republics. They still cared about being a big fish in a small pond, but even more so, they cared for big, big money – and for something else.
Enter the US. According to Victoria Nuland, Assistant US State Secretary in charge of Eurasia (US State Dept) and well-known neocon, US spent $5bln so subvert Ukraine. She bragged about that during the Washington Press Club meeting in December 2013. The videos of her bragging were initially posted all over YouTube, but soon they disappeared. However, millions managed to see them and spread the word before they vanished.
Note, $5 bln is just the official number! How much was paid quietly, under the table, through slush funds? How much was funneled through NGOs? How much went through the Soros foundation? How much went through Chabad? Who did the US pay these astronomical amounts to? The names aren’t a big secret.

Collapse: Post-Soviet Republics vs Russia
To understand the background of the Ukrainian situation and its artificial Russophobia, it’s useful to look at other post-Soviet republics.
During Soviet days, the neighboring Moldova was in mint condition due to constant infusions of resources by the Russian Federation – the same thing that happened in Ukraine and other Soviet republics. Brezhnev in particular had a soft spot for Moldova as he worked there at one point. Originally, Brezhnev was from Ukraine, and he heavily invested in Ukraine as well. Russia promoted local cultures and heavily invested into industrialization of ALL 14 Soviet republics, including in large part the Baltics: Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. The same ones who love to talk about how “Russians oppressed them.”
After the USSR collapse, Russia withdrew from all former republics to deal with her own problems, and as a result most republics quickly became poor and destitute.
Moldova’s elections are coming up and the country is being torn between the EU and Eurasian Union. While the majority of the population wants to be a part of the Eurasian Union, the elites are dragging the country towards EU and towards absorption by Romania. The amount of anti-Russian propaganda in Moldova is mind-boggling as well. In 1990-1992 Moldova went through today’s Ukraine scenario, on a smaller scale. The result was that the richest, most industrialized and productive part of then Moldavian SSR, Pridnestrovie, seceded. Presently, other parts of Moldova are threatening to secede, especially Gagauzia and the north. (Find more on that in Lada Ray YT Channel videos).
Incidentally, neither Latvia nor Estonia ever existed as separate states. These were territories that passed from Germany and Sweden to Russia as a purchase or based on a peace treaty. I could go much deeper in history, but suffice it to say that it was Lenin, who for the first time gave Latvia and Estonia a status of independent ‘states.’ These ‘states’ only exist thanks to Lenin’s decree. Others, such as Ukraine, only existed as ‘Soviet Socialist Republics’ in the context of the Soviet Union. Lenin was the ‘founding father’ of their respective nations. It’s interesting that instead of adoring Lenin, all these ‘independent and democratic nations’ hate him pretty viciously and destroy his monuments. Just shows the level of reasons and lucidity of these people.
Out of 14 republics (excluding the Russian Federation), only Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan, and perhaps also Turkmenistan, managed to preserve their Soviet-built enterprises, making them pay in the new era. Belarus also managed to build and expand on its Soviet heritage, creating the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle.’ Belarus succeeded due to a cozy relationship with Russia, therefore getting gas at heavily discounted prices, making its exports very competitive. The latter three did well enough due to their own huge reserves of oil and gas, previously discovered and industrialized by Russia.
Another location that managed to preserve its Soviet inheritance is the break-away republic of Pridnestrovie (formerly part of Moldavia) – but without any oil or gas.
The rest squandered their Soviet inheritance to various degrees. However, like spoiled brats, some of them blamed Russia for their own mistakes and thievery. The spoiled brats in this case are Georgia, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine. These are all former republics that look to the West. When the USSR fell apart they lost Russia as that ‘parent’ that took care of them, oftentimes spoiling them by giving them more than leaving for herself. Now brats want to latch onto the next ‘surrogate parent’ – EU. The goal is to take, giving little in return. However, the West doesn’t work that way. They won’t give anything for free, in fact they like to take more than they give. Meanwhile, Russia also learned her lesson and doesn’t want to squander her resources for nothing any more.
Thus, the countries that are used to latching on to someone stronger are left in the cold. This breeds irrational hatred that can be maliciously manipulated.
Here is a crucial point to understand about Russia! Unlike the Western empires, such as UK, US, Spain and France, who looted and drained resources of those countries they conquered, Russia drained herself to give to her satellites. Such imbalance had to end badly: on Russia’s side, due to the resentment of the core Russian population; on the side of the republics, due to their sense of absolute entitlement.
As a result, in the 1990s – 2000s, a very strange situation developed, when Russia still supplied Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine and Moldova with gas, based on the heavily subsidized Soviet-entitlement-style prices, and in return, Russia got bashing, backstabbing and direct provocations from said republics. At the very same time, large parts, if not most populations of these republics spoke Russian and lived off Russian tourism and banking.
A great example of this is the Baltics: Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. The same three Baltic republics, plus Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia, while displaying animosity and openly threatening Russia with NATO expansion, happily continued exporting massive amounts of their products to Russia. This ended recently when Russia adopted a new import policy and embargo.
Subsidizing all these republics was all fine and good while USSR was doing well, but since it took away the resources from Russia proper and gave them disproportionately to the periphery, discontent grew in Russia just before and during the USSR collapse. This generated a desire to be separate from the former ethnic republics in Russia proper, which didn’t help with the general relationship with said republics. Russia eventually recovered and started doing on average better than during Soviet times, thus proving that Russian resources had been indeed drained by the periphery subsidies.
But at the same time that Russia withdrew from the republics, US advisors, Soros, NGOs and NWO neocon/neoliberal influences moved in. Presently, we are observing the disastrous results of Russia’s withdrawal from the geopolitically important territories.
However, eventually the pull of Russia, affinity with her culture and worldview, combined with the economic benefits of working in Russia, proved to be so enormous that before long, massive numbers of immigrants from former Soviet republics flooded Russian cities and countryside.
The ignorant president of the USA, Obama, in a speech designed to calm down the Baltics (Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania), recently stated that Russia is so bad that no one wants to live there.
In reality, Russia is #2 country in the world for immigration after USA. At this rate, it will become #1 pretty soon. Massive numbers of residents of various post-Soviet republics work in Russia as guest workers. This especially concerns Ukraine (5.5mln Ukrainians out of arguably 39 million population: 45mln minus 2mln in Crimea and 4 mln in DNR and LNR) and Moldova (700,000+ out of 3.6 mln population). Kyrgyzstan and Armenia numbers are even higher as 1/2 of the population or more work in Russia. Large numbers immigrate from Georgia, Korea, and Central Asia. There are over 3 million Chinese immigrants in Russia. There is growing immigration from the West as well.
Meanwhile, up to 1/2 of the population of the Baltics immigrated to the West. Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are empty.
Western Propaganda in Ukraine; how Hatred Was Ignited and Maintained
The Western style propaganda war was unleashed in the oligarch and Western NGO-controlled Ukrainian media throughout the 1990s and 2000s. It has culminated between 2004 Orange Revolution and now. Soros-sponsored history books rewrote the entire history of Ukraine to prove that Ukrainians were completely separate from Russians. Western-trained journalists and Western-sponsored newspapers and TV have been promoting “western values’ and bashing anything Russian for over 20 years.
Most journalists from Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries were trained in Poland. Poland acted, and still does, as the massive training camp for anti-Russian media, opposition politicians and color revolutionary training (meaning how to throw Molotov cocktails more effectively and how to set buildings on fire). Trainers in these training seminars and camps are almost exclusively American, Canadian or British. Russian TV did some stories on these secret seminars held oftentimes in an inconspicuous Polish neighborhood. They obtained the lists of instructors with clearly English-sounding names. When they tried to film the inside through the window or glass door, the curtains would be drawn immediately or the door barricaded – all that caught on film.
As some of you may recall, just recently Poland was also implicated in the secret CIA prison and illegal torture scandal. CIA kidnapped people by thousands and shipped them to Polish secret prisons, where US torture laws didn’t apply, in violation, I might add, of the EU laws.
As a result of this massive subversion of Ukraine, the old spites have been brought out of the woodwork and spun in the media to suit agendas alien to simple Ukrainians. Most of these spites belonged to the western-Ukraine nazis, humiliated as a result of their defeat in WWII together with Hitler; others were the old spites of Poland or Lithuania whose past imperial ambitions were defeated more than once by Russia. These irrelevant spites were imposed on the rest of Ukraine.
It is clear that $5 billion Victoria Nuland was bragging about that US spent ‘to subvert Ukraine,’ wasn’t all they spent over the years. They had to pay off the sell-out journalists, fiction ‘history’ book creators, politicians, and let’s not forget the equipping, training and financing the ukro-nazis from western Ukraine.
The West also had to feed the greediest of them all: Ukraine oligarchs who have been controlling and strangling the poor Ukraine since 1991. Poroshenko – real name Valtsman – is one of them. Valtsman Sr., the father of the Ukraine president, was an underground millionaire and crook from Odessa, who served several years in jail for stealing goods by the trainload during Soviet times. Greed runs in the family.
Incidentally, Ukraine’s president Poroshenko is one of the oligarchs controlling the media. He famously said that he would never sell the Channel 5 he owns. Here is the fact he doesn’t even try to hide: through his Channel 5 he had been influencing the public opinion during the 2004 Orange Revolution, throughout the 2014 Maidan and subsequent presidential election. So do a handful of other oligarchs controlling the country.
The scale of the lies of the Ukraine media can only be compared to the German Nazi propaganda. Some believe they have gone much further. As much as the Western MSM propaganda is mind-boggling, Ukraine today takes the cake. Russians are constantly accused of invasion, despite the fact that to this day, not a shred of evidence, nor a single picture, footage, or any other conclusive document has been presented. Ukraine MSM routinely lies, showing the Donbass self-defense, consisting of local citizens and volunteers from other countries, including Serbia, France and Spain, and calling it Russian troops. Kiev MSM routinely lies that the Donbass self-defense has shot at local citizens (their own families, in other words) and blew up their own houses. With that, the footage shown would be that of the destruction caused by the Ukraine army shelling. According to the Kiev media, the mass graves found in Donbass occurred because those people killed themselves with their hands tied behind their backs, then neatly dug out graves and buried themselves. Why hasn’t Himmler thought of this! Yeah, I forgot, Himmler was a bit smarter than that.
Meanwhile, Ukraine army openly hired well-paid mercenaries, including those from Poland, Georgia, Romania, Sweden, and other Western countries. Some of these mercenaries bombed innocent civilians in Donbass. Per reports, various US advisors still work by thousands in Ukraine.
At the same time, Ukrainians started officially referring to Russians as ‘Moskali’ – derogatory ‘from Moscow.’ By that logic, citizens of Siberia are also from Moscow. This is a direct attempt to incite hatred. This is also done to diminish anyone who is Russian – after all, Moscow is rather small compared to the entire Russian territory.
