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.

This is the follow-up to my previous posts:
- Ukraine Events Heating up and Accelerating
- Beautiful Russian-Soviet Song Flash Mobs Unite Russians and Ukrainians Against Kiev Junta Hatred
In Beautiful Russian-Soviet Song Flash Mobs, I showed you how people in Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Odessa and Moscow countered the vicious hatred emanating from Kiev junta, and how they said no to repressions against Russian language in Ukraine.
The new additional data coming in on the repressions against Russian language: Kiev Rada will be voting on the new law, which is supposed to limit Russian language programming on TV and radio to 5%. Already, most Russian films, all Russian-languge TV/radio stations and publications are banned in Ukraine, except the openly anti-Putin and anti-Russian ones.
There is another radical ukro-nazi proposal awaiting a vote in the Rada. It calls for the Russian speakers who always resided in Ukraine to be denied citizenship and the right to education. Ukraine is following in the footsteps of Latvia and Estonia, the euro-fascist members of the EU, where millions of Russian-speakers are denied citizenship and given a label of ‘non-citizens.’ Who needs Hitler…
This last one was proposed by an infamous deputy from Western Ukraine, Irina Farion, who during Soviet times used to be a member of the Communist Party, but when it became profitable, she promptly switched to the ukro-nazi side of the most vicious kind. She reminds me of the Lithuanian ‘president’ installed by the US, Dalia Gribauskayte, also once a Communist Party member and daughter of a KGB (NKVD) officer, who turned the moment US/EU promised her those proverbial 30 pieces of silver.
Another law being passed mandates that no signs in Russian language can appear in airports and train stations, despite the fact that 70% of Ukraine prefers to speak Russian. The mandated languages for public announcements and signs in Ukraine airports and train stations will be Ukrainian and English.
There are many more acts of repression towards Russian language and culture in Ukraine.
After all this, is it any wonder that normal people are leaving Ukraine by millions? The problem with that is: if everyone normal leaves, who will be left? Only imbeciles, sheeple and low-lives? This, unfortunately, is a very worrying ongoing trend in Ukraine. For more read: Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force? (US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine).
Many leave, but some choose to stay and hold the fort, no matter how hard it is, until a meaningful change can occur.
To say NO to all the repressions, the new Flash mob “The Russian World” was born in Zaporozhye, Eastern Ukraine. The industrial city of Zaporozhye, located on the banks of the River Dnepr, next to Donbass and not far from Donetsk, was the seat of the Soviet 1930s industrialization. Read more about it in the articles linked at the bottom.
After the Russian-Soviet song flash mobs in Zaporozhye, Kharkov, Odessa and Moscow, Dnepropetrovsk has joined in. Dnepropetrovsk is a large city and an oblast located between Zaporozhye and Donetsk oblasts in Eastern Ukraine.
The Dnepropetrovsk Train Station flash mob sang the famous Russian song Katyusha. Here’s the first amateur video of the Katyusha flash mob:
Better quality full version of the Dnepropetrovsk Katyusha flash mob has posted on YT:
You can find some original versions of Katyusha in Legendary Soviet Music Hits.
And this is Katyusha by the Red Army Choir:

Since 2014 Kiev junta banned Russian language during school classes. Now every teacher is mandated to speak only Ukrainian in class, and so are students. In 2014 and 2015 the historic symbolism uniting Russia and Ukraine was banned. Many historic monuments were destroyed throughout Ukraine as well. Ukro-nazi thugs from the ‘right sector’ Svoboda and various nazi battalions brutally beat up and even killed those who tried to resist. Among things banned in Ukraine have been the Victory Banner (symbol of the WWII Victory), names of cities and streets. They succeeded in renaming one of the largest cities in Ukraine from Dnepropetrovsk to Dnepr. They tried to rename Odessa to Kotsyubeevsk (if you can believe it), but met with staunch resistance from Odessans, which made them back off.
The newest thing the Kiev junta is doing is banning Russian language during school breaks. Teachers caught speaking Russian will be fired.
In the atmosphere of the oppression, the people are finding ways to resist in a beautiful and inspiring way, by performing Russian-Soviet songs at train stations.
It began on November 13 in Zaporozhye, the large industrial city in Eastern Ukraine, located next to Donbass. The city of Zaporozhye is located in the very center of the ancestral Zaporozhskie Cossack territories. Zaporozhye means basically ‘beyond the white waters.’ It is located on the banks of the river Dnepr and it is the white waters of the river that gave it its name. The city was founded by the Russian tsars; in 1930s it became the center of the Soviet industrialization. It is the sight of the famous symbol of the Soviet industrialization DneproGes (Dnepr Hydroelectric Station). It is also the home to the metallurgical giant Zaporozhstal’ (Zaporozhye Metal Plant). Europe’s largest nuclear power plant is also built here. I again want to stress that everything that has been built in Zaporozhye was built by either the Russian Empire or the USSR. During its 25 years of ‘independence’ Ukraine built nothing of significance. On the contrary, much was ruined and stolen. More here: Insane Asylum Overload: Ukraine Bans Communism – Goodbye Chinese Investments.
The first flash mob at the Zaporozhye Train Station sang the song from the hit Soviet film, The Spring on River Street, 1956. The Spring on River Street is a romantic comedy about a worker from Zaporozhstal’ and a young teacher, fresh out of college. The song is called, My Native Street. This song is sort of unofficial anthem of Zaporozhye.
I have to say that after I heard this flash mob several days ago I can’t stop humming this song, which I’ve always loved.
Flash mob at Zaporozhye Train Station, November 2016. Russian-Soviet song: My Native Street:
And this is the original from 1956, with the clip from the film The Spring on River Street. Улица родная – Весна на Заречной улице. You can find this film and this song featured on my RUSSIAN FILMS page. Incidentally, the film was made by the Odessa Movie Studio.
Kharkov, the 2nd largest city in Ukraine and the former capital, was next. At the Kharkov Train Station the flash mob performed another hit from the same era, The Old Maple, from film Devchata (Girls), a romantic comedy by Mosfilm (Moscow Film Studio).
This is the original with the clip from Devchata:
Odessa Train Station flash mob was the largest and it performed the hit Russian-Soviet song Smuglyanka (Darkie, the Moldavian Girl) from the famous 1973 film Only Old Men Go into Battle. I believe this masterpiece of a film was made at the Kiev Movie Studio. It was during Soviet times, of course, before Kiev sold out and destroyed everything previous generations stood for. It is action/drama about the multi-ethnic unit of the Soviet pilots during WWII, who loved to sing. This film is also featured on my RUSSIAN FILMS page.
The choice of a song was good for Odessa, a very international city, as well as it being a close neighbor to Moldova. It also was a gutsy choice, since Soviet symbolism, including Russian WWII symbols, is banned in Ukraine.
This is the original Smuglyanka by the Red Army Choir
In response, Russians organized their own flash mob in Moscow, at the Kiev Train Station. Yep, there is a train station in Moscow that is called ‘Kiev Train Station’ where trains from Kiev terminate. It was always there, and it doesn’t occur to anyone to rename that station, unlike the war on everything Russian in Ukraine. In reality the most popular train in Ukraine is Lvov-Kiev-Moscow, despite all the bans of the Kiev junta.
The song at the Kiev Train Station is called Rozpriagaite Hloptsi Koney (Boys, Unsaddle Your Horses). It is a Cossack song, sung in Ukrainian, or more precisely, southern Russian dialect. My mom loved that song.
In the end of the clip the lead of the group Yarilov Znoy (Ra’s Heat) says that they organized the flash mob to show that, despite all the hateful rhetoric, Russians and Ukrainians are one people, sharing one history.

Dear readers, you all know that my mission is to illuminate and reveal the truth, as well as to restore balance in our severely confused and imbalanced world. Sometimes we have good intentions, but our enthusiasm (and our stereotypes, based on our often limited experience and understanding of the situation) may show it to us in a distorted mirror.
For example, as the post below will demonstrate, the situation with police isn’t necessarily the same, or could even be drastically different, in Ukraine as opposed to the USA.
I have received this email from one of my supporters. I’ll keep it anonymous, however, I am sure he will approve of me publishing his nameless comment because I know he is after the real, honest truth as much as I am.
‘Thought this was astoundingly brilliant for these Ukrainian ladies to use mirrors like this. I felt you’d like to see this.
Images (click on link above for more):
Now, let me begin by saying that there is a falsehood I detect in these images from the get-go. I think those who published this article either don’t know the background or seek to manipulate it for their own agenda, either knowingly or unknowingly.
Here’s why: they didn’t tell the truth about the origin of these images, and for a good reason, because, as I suspect, they may have been taken during violent attack on the Russian embassy during yesterday’s elections. This is illegal by international law and in a normal world it would have caused severe condemnation of Ukraine by the international community. But in our warped world, it is somehow lauded as a ‘protest’ in the West, both by MSM and – it turns out – by alternative media.
They don’t say which protest exactly these images are from. But since the last such event were attacks on the Russian embassy in Kiev and on the Russian consulate in Odessa, it’s very possible at least some of these are from yesterday, Sunday, September 18, 2016 violent protest by Svoboda party ukro-fascists at the Russian embassy in Kiev. Even if they are not: I have seen yesterday’s videos in which similar grannies and grandpas spat at police and yelled at them: ‘I hate you, you sold out for Poroshenko’s chocolates.’ Note that this is being yelled at police because they are protecting Russian embassy from destruction and voters from being beaten up.
Kiev junta and ukro-nazis of all kinds, including Kiev Rada deputies, did everything yesterday to prevent Russian citizens residing in Ukraine from voting in Russian elections. They wouldn’t let them through, tried to damage the embassy and beat people up. Most voters were too afraid to come near the embassy.
It has to be noted that threats against voters and failure of a host country to protect the embassy and foreign voters during election in any country is considered international crime. We live in a very international world and most countries have expats. There are 80,000 Russian citizens in Ukraine. How they came to be is another story and I’ll explain that in the upcoming ESR on Russian Elections 2016.
Kiev first attempted to ban Russian elections on Ukrainian territory and announced that no protection would be granted. After pressure by EU and Russia, Kiev reluctantly dispatched police for Russian embassy’s protection. These policemen, who just stood there, whose job it was to protect voters and embassy of a foreign state, were subjected to extreme insults by ‘protesters.’ Even more grave insults were hurled at Russia, including calls to ‘destroy Russia and kill all Russians’ and statements that ‘there is no such thing as Russia.’
I have to say that police did a half hearted job in Kiev, and one of the reasons was because grannies and burly thugs alike attacked and shamed them.
Just like with 2014 Kiev coup, grannies were there for the MSM pictures, as a PR stunt. The real dirty work was done by burly militants.
I am preparing a full Earth Shift Report about Russian Elections 2016, which I’ll publish around this Wednesday. In the report, you’ll be able to see videos and pics of the crazy mayhem that went on in Ukraine yesterday, as opposed to how civilized the vote was all over Russia and all over the world.
Sorry to tell you: these poor confused grannies are just convenient dupes for the Western propaganda. They are the ones who facilitated, and continue doing so, fascism in Ukraine.
The video included in the above-linked article, which incidentally has already been deleted, reads in Ukrainian: ‘Defenders of Berkut, watch this video and shut up forever.’ Based on the ‘brilliant’ and ‘highly sophisticated’ language I can tell you that the video comes from either ‘right sector’ or Svoboda ukro-nazis.
Berkut was the special police called in to calm down the 2014 Kiev Maidan. Berkut was given order by then president Yanukovich to just stand there and not respond, while being beaten up and set on fire by West-trained, pumped up with heavy drugs ukro-nazi thugs.
Back then these kinds of grannies were at the Maidan as well. They protested in 2014 because their pensions were meager and because they were duped by the EU and their oligarch-controlled MSM into believing in the EU fairytale. They were told: the moment they join the EU their pensions will be on par with European and they will all be given free BMWs and villas on the Mediterranean. If you think I am joking – nope, I’m dead serious. This was Ukraine propaganda in 2012-2014.
Now, after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup, with Kiev junta and Poroshenko/US occupational forces in power, grivna has gone through the floor, country is teetering on the verge of default, pensions and salaries are a tiny fraction of what they were in 2013 under dreaded Yanukovich. These poor grannies simply can’t survive after electricity/heating rates shot up by 25 times in some places, and the cost of food and medicine has gone through the roof. Meanwhile, the Kiev propaganda blames for this disaster not their own failures, but – who else! The convenient villain catch-all, Russia and Putin.
These grannies are like the Luddites, who destroyed machines at factories during UK industrialization because they were unhappy with their lives and confused as to who to blame for their exploitation. These frustrated grannies should be protesting and dealing with the oligarchs in power, plus foreign occupation of the country by the US/Canada/West. They should be protesting those who get rich off the bloody civil war and bombing of civilians in Donbass.
They should be throwing out of their cushy offices those who caused a breakup with Russia, resulting in a systemic destruction of Ukraine’s economy and loss of sorely needed 15bln in profits from Russian trade. They should be demanding their sold-out puppet government to be replaced with those who genuinely love Ukraine and who would work on restoring good relations and economic ties with Russia – the only country that can help Ukraine get up from its knees.
But they don’t see their own image in the mirror. They are incapable of seeing the truth without distortions. To them, someone else has to be blamed for their lost hope to ‘join EU and live like Europeans.’ For their brains, completely zombified by Kiev propaganda and feeling the humiliation from Crimea and Donbass leaving Ukraine, Russia is the arch-enemy.
So is the police – another easy arch-enemy at whom to lash out. The reason for that is this: they are afraid to attack Poroshenko and his cronies, who are too well protected. If they tried, they’d be shot at or hauled off to jail for life. But simple policemen are just cannon fodder. These ‘protesters’ know that unlike in the USA, Ukraine police was ordered not to respond and treat them all with kid gloves. They know they can insult their police safely and with abandon.
(Note, I am emphatically NOT on the side of Ukraine police – I do think they are sold out and inadequate. But even more so, I am for truth, fairness, reason and balance).
What the author of that article has done (here is the LINK again) is legitimize and promote ukro-fascists, Kiev junta and USA’s takeover of Ukraine. Congratulations, you’ve arrived!
My dear Western friends, if you really mean well and want meaningful change in our big common world, then at least talk about what you know! Don’t talk or show things you have no idea about!
Protests are a good thing. There is a glaring problem with police brutality in the USA and I can see how protests in America are necessary.
However, in the EU for example, police is quite meek, almost too polite and politically correct, rendering it ineffective. In the EU the opposite is true: people wish the police would do more to make them feel protected and secure.
At the same time, in Russia the complete overhaul and sweeping police reform, following prior corruption scandals and population’s discontent, caused a very serious turnaround in police work and oversight. Russia now again has one of the most well-balanced and well-trained police forces in the world.
Meanwhile, Ukraine police is in a disastrous shape: in addition to being extremely corrupt, it is simultaneously inept, demoralized, humiliated and emasculated. Without effective police force, crime, killings, attacks and lawlessness reign supreme in Ukraine, to which police are usually indifferent.
There you have it: one size doesn’t fit all. Moreover, it is strongly suggested one knows the subject before talking about it.
I have published this article to help you, my friends, orient yourself in the confusing sea of conflicting information. My only goal is to illuminate the truth and to educate. I hope the author of this comment, and my readers, understand my motivation!

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

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

This is the latest from Kiev: prime minister of Ukraine Yatsenyuk just announced his resignation. His resignation will be discussed in the Rada on April 12. Last time he attempted this, it was rejected. Will it be accepted this time?
I have to say that the first word that comes to mind is: FINALLY! Not because something will improve in Ukraine after Yatsenyuk’s resignation. Not at all. It is likely to get worse before it has any hope of getting better. Unfortunately, this US/EU project called ‘ukro-nazi oligarchic and Russophobic Kiev junta’ has plunged the territory formerly known as Ukraine into disaster, destroyed its economy, currency and created enemies out of people who used to call themselves brothers. But the bottom still has not been reached. There is still some way to fall…
Yatsenyuk has been trying to resign since last year, while Rada refused to let him go. Not because he is indispensable; just the opposite: he presided over the wholesale destruction of Ukraine’s economy. It was his job and this is what he was hired to do: this entire ukro-nazi Kiev junta is a demolition crew in order to leave ruins where Ukraine once was. Failing the creation of a full fledged aggressive anti-Russia (like Hitler’s Germany once, but much closer), the next best thing was to leave Ukraine in a shambles, making Russia spend resources to rebuild it (all this discussed in detail in Ukraine-related Earth Shift Reports (ESRs 2, 3, 6, 8) and Predictions).
Recently, IMF again confirmed that the new tranche of IMF loans to Ukraine is being ‘postponed.’ Translation from the bankster slang: Ukraine will never get any more IMF loans, for as long as this junta is in power. The initial IMF loan promise to Ukraine was about $16 bln, while by all estimates, Ukraine needed at least $33 bln to survive. Last time IMF had disbursed a $3 bln (if memory serves) tranche was over 7 months ago. Since then, IMF was forced to recognize Ukraine’s debt of $3 bln to Russia as a sovereign debt, something Kiev vehemently denied. This effectively made it impossible for the global banking consortium to disburse any more loans to Ukraine. IMF rules state that a country in default of sovereign debt cannot receive loans. If they broke their own golden rule it would signify breakdown of the entire Western banking model. At this point, if IMF gave Ukraine another loan, then Russia, as creditor No. 1, would take precedence and IMF money would be immediately paid to Russia. In other words, Ukraine wouldn’t get anything anyway.
In truth, the recognition of Kiev’s $3 bln debt to Russia as sovereign was just a pretext to begin dumping Ukraine as the failed project to create anti-Russia on Russian borders. I predicted this outcome since early 2014. See more in PREDICTIONS, Ukraine ESRs and Ukraine archived articles on FT.
Poroshenko went around the world begging for loans wherever he could: US, Turkey, even Japan. He got something like several hundred million, with heavy strings attached, plus a ‘guarantee for $1 bln’ from the US. Guarantee means that IF anyone wants to give Kiev money, then US would act as guarantor. No takers so far.
The situation in the economy is dire: for the oligarchs, Kiev politicians and military there is less and less left to steal.
Here is an interesting fact: since 2014 Kiev coup ALL Ukraine oligarchs lost a huge percentage of their wealth. All, except one: president Poroshenko by many estimates increased his fortune by seven times. He started at his presidential post with $600 million. Now his fortune is worth several billion dollars. Watch my video/audio report on YouTube:
Most of those who were rich and powerful before the coup lost money and assets at a huge rate (read ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS). In fact, most Ukraine oligarchs mentioned in ESR3 aren’t billionaires any more; they have now been downgraded to mere multi-millionaires.
However, there was another person in power who benefited tremendously during the time of a wholesale destruction of Ukraine. In fact, he is called Thief No. 1 and his name is PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk. This one isn’t an oligarch and he doesn’t need assets, like Poroshenko or Kolomoysky. He just wants lots of dollars, plain and simple. During the past two years, and especially during his PM tenure, he stole over $1 bln. Moreover, in the same period he also acquired Canadian citizenship.
This brings us to the direct reason why Yatsenyuk is in a hurry to resign. He sees the writing on the wall: economy destroyed, no one is willing to give Kiev loans. Soon Ukrainians all over the country will begin rioting again. It is clear that anti-Russia project failed and this artificially created and maintained country has no future. It is also clear that Transatlantic bosses have begun ‘flushing down’ Ukraine.
Yatsenyuk was installed by US to demolish Ukraine’s economy. He achieved his purpose. US, represented by Joe Biden, Rada and Poroshenko want to keep Yatsenyuk around. Someone has to be designated as a scapegoat when sh*t hits the fan. Yatsenyuk is already the most hated politician in the country, with basically zero% rating. With nickname ‘blood-thirsty rabbit’ for his role in Donbass ATO and support of killing Russians, he is perfect for the role.
Yatsenyuk knows he needs to get out while he can. Rats continue abandoning the ship.
RT vid shows tariff hikes in Ukraine while Yatsenyuk was PM:
Read my article with telling videos: Kiev Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar (Saakashvili, Avakov, Yatsenyuk and Idiocracy Plus)
Who will come after Yatsenyuk? This is an interesting question. It can be US citizen and present finance minister of Ukraine Natalie Jareska, who is being pushed by the US. Or it can be the ‘bloody pastor’ Turchinov, who first authorized ATO and shelling of peaceful people in Donbass. More acceptable to some is the figure of the Rada speaker Groysman. (I have written about connection of Yatsenyuk, Poroshenko and Groysman to global Zionist organization Chabad and American Zionists in Earth Shift Report 6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?)
For a time US tried to install as Ukraine PM the current Odessa governor and wanted ex-Georgia president Saakashvili. He was the rumored frontrunner until he made enemies in the majority of Kiev elites (read much more about what games are being played by Saakashvili and his US bosses in the latest Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA AGENDA).
These are potential candidates for the new PM position, Groysman being the current favorite.
However, I say who cares who will be next? Whoever they install in this post will be yet another puppet of the same forces; he/she will forward the same agenda and will also use this position to siphon the little wealth that still remains in the country.
Incidentally, it was Yatsenyuk who authorized the transfer to the US of Ukraine’s gold, including priceless Scythian gold (Gold of the Skiffs).
The wholesale looting of Ukraine continues. What will next PM steal? Not much is left – they have to hurry.
Sadly, my 2014 prediction, ‘before Ukraine starts turning back to Russia between 2016 and 2018 its economy will be completely destroyed,’ is materializing fully. Yesterday I listened to an update from Natalia Vitrenko, leader of now banned Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine and prominent economist. According to Vitrenko, per capita GDP of Ukraine is now about 140th out of 180 tracked countries, behind Papua New Guinea. In 1990, when Ukraine was together with Russia, its GDP was No. 10 in the world. Further, Ukraine is now No.1 in the world in per capita mortality rate. All this happened in the past 2 years.
Meanwhile, Kiev propaganda keeps telling Ukrainians that Russia is about to collapse and disintegrate, that Ukraine army is about to retake Crimea and that US is behind them 100%.
I had already predicted all there was to predict about the future of Ukraine. Now it’s time to sit back and watch the future unfold. See: Predictions and new Trends & Predictions page on LadaRay.info.
I won’t repeat all these predictions. I’ll just say this: the sooner the still remaining in the country sane Ukrainians wake up (many normal ones were forced to flee ukro-nazis), stop listening to Kiev MSM/political propaganda and begin seeing the situation in their country for what it is, the less pain and suffering they will have to go through as a result, when sh*t does hit the fan.
I know, I am asking for logic, reason and clear thinking where there is none. Ukraine will have no choice but to wake up, and it will be a painful awakening. Due to how zombified the population has become, the awakening will only happen when US and EU dump Ukraine. The process of ‘flushing down’ has already begun. It will intensify in 2017.
Yatsenyuk wants to get out before it becomes visible to all. He bought himself Canadian citizenship and his private jet is on standby. Same is true for Poroshenko and other Ukraine criminals. But the majority of the population won’t be able to escape. There is simply no place for them to run…
Moreover, I can tell you that the name of ‘Ukraine’ as a state will cease to exist within 10 years, possibly as little as 6 years. There was no Ukraine before 19th century (I wrote about that in ESR2: UKRAINE – TRUTH, LIES, FUTURE HOPE) and the situation will revert to its historical equilibrium in time.
I personally vote for Novorossia as the new name.
France Recognizes Novorossia?
As a matter of fact, French TV channel ITELE for the first time ever aired a map of Novorossia, in which they included: Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson oblasts.
The above oblasts is what is traditionally included in Novorossia.
However, something is telling me that the Novorossia that is coming will be substantially bigger in scope… Just kidding. I know for a fact it will be much larger than that! Consider it one of my predictions!
You may know that my personal view and prediction is that most of today’s Ukraine will within 1-2 years turn towards Russia and that only Russia can pacify, rebuild and keep what is now Ukraine whole. Of course, it will be under another name…

Nemo (Stanislav) is doing a marvelous and important job of translating various documentaries and documents from Russian into English. These translations cut through language barriers and reveal the truths to our Western readers, which otherwise wouldn’t be heard and known. Please read his new English translations (and follow his blog, too)!
- Translation of a fragment of a Russian documentary, which goes well along with Lada’s FT article How to Tell a Hoax from Targeted Info Dump (MSM/ Alternative Media) : http://stanislavs.org/the-nets-of-deception-false-reality-documentary-fragment-with-english-subtitles/
- ‘I finished translating the large documentary about the Ukrainian history: http://stanislavs.org/project-ukraine-documentary-by-andrei-medvedev-with-english-subtitles/. Alas, it was immediately “blocked worldwide” by YouTube: “Copyrighted content was found in your video.” Interesting that they took almost the whole film. The film itself is created by Rossia24 and has nothing to do with BigMovieNetwork. Until I upload this video to RuTube, one can grab the untranslated video from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvpAeGeqd4Q and then apply the subtitles, available from download from my site.’
Upcoming PUTIN’S INTERNATIONAL LIVE Q&A (Nemo’s info in response to Lada’s post Putin shows German skills, unexpectedly steps in as translator at international journalist forum):
‘That was a really nice gesture on Putin’s part. This whole press-conference had such a relaxed, informal, friendly atmosphere.
On the 14th of April, there will be the large live “Direct Line” Q&A session with Putin.
Questions can be addressed here: http://moskva-putinu.ru/

FlyDubai Boeing-737 FZ981 crashed in Rostov-on-Don killing all 62 on board (RT SPECIAL COVERAGE):
Flydubai flight FZ981 has crashed in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don (Rostov Oblast) killing all 62 passengers and crew on board. The flight was en route from Dubai and crashed during its second landing approach amid poor weather conditions.
‘Every detail is important’ – interview with head of the search group. Over 800 Russian investigators, experts and search workers are now at the scene. Rostov Airport remains closed, planes have been re-routed.
Out of 62 people onboard, there were 55 passengers: 44 Russian citizens and 11 foreign nationals; and 7 crew members: one Russian citizen, 6 foreign nationals. Most of Russians on board were from Rostov Oblast. None of the people on board survived the crash.
First of all, I want to offer my deepest condolences to the families of all victims.
#Flydubai is a budget airline owned and operated by the United Arab Emirates state. They fly from Dubai to over 60 countries. It appears the pilot was a Greek national and the crew was international.
The plane attempted two landings, crashing on second attempt. According to the very first account of events, visibility was poor due to bad weather, which, based on some initial speculation, allegedly may have caused the plane to crash. However, a large number of questions remains.
The investigation has only just begun and as usual, Russian authorities will be very careful to admit that foul play is involved. If you recall, Russians admitted that Sinai, Egypt catastrophe, with 224 dead, was a terrorist act only after UK announced they were grounding flights to Egypt due to terrorist threat. In fact, the very first accusation floating around the net, was against the pilot and crew. They were accused of lack of professionalism; the Russian aviation in general was immediately accused of poor pilot preparation. Moreover, the company was accused of poor plane maintenance and Russian authorities in sloppiness. All that was rebuffed by everyone from global aviation authorities to Russian authorities and various international testing agencies. It turned out that the Sinai Airbus pilot was one of the most experienced and top-rated in the business, the whole crew was exceptionally experienced and that the plane just passed full maintenance and testing in Ireland.
Clearly, Russians knew it was a terrorist act early on. The reason for the slow admission was so not to play into the hands of terrorists. One of the main goals of the Sinai terrorist act was to put a wedge between Russia and Egypt, whose close relations were on the upswing. Another goal was to take revenge on Russia for destroying ISIS infrastructure in Syria, financed and built by Qatar, Turkey and Saudis. Third, to instill dread in Russians vacationing abroad. The actual organizers of the Sinai attack have been named (in whispers) in Russia: Qatar and Qatar foreign minister in person. I explain how and why in ESR5 and ESR7.
I suspect that in the case of Rostov-on-Don Flydubai catastrophe Russians will be just as careful to publicly announce the results of investigation. We’ll see how it goes and I do not intend to get ahead of the investigation. I am for allowing professionals to handle it at their pace. Besides, very little is really known to date on how it happened and what went wrong.
Barring any real details, for now I’ll be very cautious with any definitive conclusions. But I want to share the red flags this catastrophe has risen for me. I will leave the technical stuff to specialists. Instead, let’s talk about what is my specialty: geopolitics, Ukraine, Middle East, and attempts to stop Earth Shift and Russia’s rebalancing of the world away from the West.
Let’s call this my preliminary investigation. Let’s consider it my pointing out of the suspicious alarm bells and red flags. The investigators, at a minimum, should take them into account.
For now, I hear that they are considering poor visibility and weather conditions, and/or pilot and crew error as possible reasons.
Incidentally, when the plane is this close to the ground, its speed is the slowest, which increases the possibility of survival for victims. Experts are bemused by the fact that there were no survivors.
But that’s not all. Check out this!
First, look at this CCTV footage of the plane’s crash. Notice the strange angle of descent that appears far too steep: something like 50-60 degrees. What pilot, if he is in control of his machine, would ever descent so steeply so close to the ground, risking hitting it, especially if the weather is bad and visibility poor?
Second, look at the timing of this tragedy!
On March 15th Russia just announced partial troops withdrawal from Syria (a connection with the Middle East, where UAE is also located). In connection with that, a follow up vengeance, using sloppy security at UAE airport, comes to mind.
On March 18, just a few hours prior to this catastrophe, Russia was celebrating the 2nd anniversary of reunification with Crimea (see #Sevastopol #Krim #Rossia: 2nd Anniversary of Crimea’s Reunification with Russia).
Now look at the location of the Flydubai Boeing 737 catastrophe: Rostov-on-Don, the capital of Rostov Oblast. To the west, Rostov Oblast borders ‘Ukraine,’ as it is marked on this map:
And now check out what is actually located on the other side of the so-called ‘Ukraine’ border: Donetsk/DNR and Lugansk/LNR. Yes, Rostov oblast borders not Ukraine, but DNR and LNR. It was here, to Rostov Oblast where 2.5 million refugees from Donbass escaped Kiev bombings; many of them still reside there. Russian humanitarian convoys and other help for the republics went and continues going through Rostov Oblast. When EU delegations and humanitarian help arrives to DLNR, it also goes through Rostov Oblast. Here is another interesting little bit: ex-prez of Ukraine Yanukovich escaped from ukro-nazis to Rostov, where he presently resides.
In short, Rostov serves as a hub and a central for help to DNR/LNR. Ukro-nazis and junta followers of various colorings and creeds have been sending all kinds of threats to Rostov Oblast and its people since 2014.
This map I found on the net shows Novocherkassk, located just next to the Rostov Oblast capital Rostov-on-Don. The body of water in the lower left corner is Azov Sea. Notice distance to Donetsk and Lugansk. Also, notice Mariupol (Donetsk Oblast) just next to the border with Rostov Oblast on the Azov Sea shore, which is now in the hands of Kiev junta and ukro-nazi battalions.
In addition to the above, Rostov Oblast on the Azov Sea is very close to Crimea, which is located just to the south-west, between Azov and Black Seas. The mega-bridge to Crimea through the Kerch Strait (Kerchensky Most) is being built just south of Rostov, in the neighboring Krasnodar Krai.
How’s all that for interesting coincidences!
Another interesting coincidence: Ukraine/Poroshenko and Turkey/Erdogan/Davutoglu are becoming very close, pushed together by their desperation and hatred of Russia and Putin. A recent investigation revealed that after Russia eliminated ISIS oil smuggling infrastructure, which made Erdogan’s family billions and allowed him to manipulate the Middle East, he is actively looking for ways to inflict damage on Russia, and is ready to accept any offers from Ukraine. Ukraine already gave plenty of advances to Turkey. I have first-hand, undeniable intel and proof of Erdogan/Poroshenko collusion and I will present it in upcoming ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. Additionally, there is direct proof of Kiev/Turkey/ISIS/Crimean Tatar Mejlis collusion, attempts and intentions to inflict damage by all means possible on Russia and Crimea. This video proof will be presented in upcoming ESR9: CRIMEAN AGENDA.
Now, to the fact that Flydubai is from UAE, located in the Middle East. It is a very well known fact that Middle East airports and companies have inferior security and hiring practices. Sinai, Egypt catastrophe demonstrated that it was too easy to install a terror device due to lax security and sloppy hiring practices at the airport.
After the Egypt tragedy, Russian airports, companies and aviation crews became super-vigilant and new, most advanced security measures were adopted. I can say absolutely confidently that no bomb or suicide bomber could have penetrated on a RUSSIAN plane.
But a UAE (Middle Eastern) plane, especially if it’s a Boeing, is a different story.
Why Boeing: just look how many catastrophes happen to Boeings lately. One interesting theory I have is that the manufacturer of these planes, Boeing, may have installed malware or backdoor software, which allows to override pilot’s commands at an opportune moment. Another possibility I see is that US controlled GPS satellite feeds may get manipulated or turned off to disorient the plane.
Alternatively, plane’s internal wiring may have been tampered with by UAE airport employees. Or just plain old bomb, as seems to be the case in Sinai tragedy….
You may ask, why they waited for literally the last second to crash the plane? Why not do it en route? Wouldn’t that be more easy and secure? I think the explanation may be on the surface. Rostov Oblast played a big role in accepting Ukraine refugees, humanitarian help, as Yanukovich residence, and in certain cases, as a transfer point to Crimea and DNR by Azov Sea. And what did Russia just celebrate? The 2nd anniversary of reunification with Crimea. Plus, Russia just announced the withdrawal of troops from Syria after the mission has been accomplished.
If this indeed were a terrorist act, the point would have been to punish Russia by making sure the plane actually crashed on Russian soil; moreover, the idea would apparently be to punish specifically the people of Rostov Oblast by crashing it in plain view of all, close to the airport.
The above ‘coincidences’ potentially implicate the following entities: Kiev junta/Ukraine, Turkey, Crimean Tatar Mejlis and their friends at ISIS-Daesh, plus their Western sponsors. For what it’s worth, Ukrainians I used to know were not devious enough to execute these kinds of terror acts. Sure, they may have changed – for this lost generation all bets are off. But my money is still on Turkey, Mejlis and ISIS.
Was it just a tragic error and confluence of unfortunate events, or was it a chilling terrorist message? Let’s hope investigation will answer that soon.

This ESR is a unique, all-encompassing resource on Ukraine, Kiev junta/Maidan, and Russia.
Two years after Maidan and February 22, 2014 Coup
Nearly two years after Crimea seceded and re-joined Russia
Soon to be two years after Donetsk & Lugansk referendums resulting in DNR/LNR & civil war
One year after Minsk peace agreements
Replaced by Syria and the Middle East, Ukraine has been out of headlines. But the new documentaries are coming out in Europe, beginning to reveal the truth of what really went on on Kiev Maidan. The picture painted in the new documentaries is stark different from the pretty lie the Kiev junta, assisted by its US bosses, tried to present for two years. Europe isn’t buying the Kiev propaganda any more, and that’s a big step forward. I have been talking about the real truth in connection with Ukraine, Kiev junta, ukro-nazis and Ukraine fascist battalions since the beginning of 2014. I am glad that the mainstream is starting to catch up.
While the world is watching Syria and US presidential debates, breaking news from Ukraine are as volatile as they were two years ago. Are ukro-nazis ready to execute Coup 2.0 to coincide with the second anniversary of Maidan? Should it happen, what to expect next?
After power, water and food blockade of Crimea last year, Ukraine has now blockaded Russian cargo truck transit to the EU. How far will these people go in their desire to hurt Russia, and who is paying them?
Let’s take a look back at how it all began and what global manipulations were behind the coup; let’s review the true, forbidden history of Ukraine and its distortions; let’s look back at my original 2014 predictions and how they are coming along! We’ll assess what has been achieved in the two years after Maidan and where it’s all heading for Ukraine, Russia, EU, US, and the world in general. Finally, let’s hear my new and updated predictions!

Over one thousand Ukraine citizens gathered in front of the US embassy in Kiev and attempted to pass on to the embassy workers their petition to Barack Obama and the American people, demanding that US stop igniting civil war and interfering in Ukrainian affairs; they also demanded the removal of US troops and weapons from Ukraine. No embassy worker came out to them and guards refused to take their petition. They resorted to gluing the petition to the embassy wall.
Posters in the video below and speeches are in Ukrainian. Posters say: “USA = War,” “USA – out of Ukraine,” “USA invaded Ukraine,” “Donbass.” They chant: “Yankee go home” and “Out of Ukraine!”
Notice how many people are hiding their faces from cameras!
I also want to point out how INCREDIBLY meek and polite all the people are. The ring leader, young woman in pink asking the guard to accept her petition, is especially polite and nice. She keeps saying “Bud’ laska,” which means in Ukrainian ‘please,’ or more precisely, ‘be so kind.’ No one says a word out of the norm, no one does anything even remotely unseemly. After neatly gluing the petition to the embassy wall, they even wipe the wall from any excess glue and polish it to perfection!!! See the woman talking to the guard at 5:15; see them wiping down the wall at 8:10.
I want everyone to note all that, because in the next video of the June 11, 2015 attack on the Russian consulate in Kharkov you will see the opposite picture!
Added: by reader request, here is a summary of the lady in pink speech and exchange with the guard:
In the beginning of the video she says, addressing the tall, blank US embassy wall: “It won’t be as you want. It will be the way it has to be. Ukraine! Yankee go home! Soldiers of USA are raping Ukraine, etc.” People also chant continuously: “Out!” and “Come out to face the people!”
The lady in pink is asking the guard how she could pass on the petition. He says she can’t. She asks why not. No clear answer – just can’t. If not, can we give it to you? He says he won’t take it. She says, you must have some channels of communication with those inside, please ask someone to come out. He says he won’t do it. She must have said ‘be so kind’ about 10-20 times during this super-polite inquiry. Then she says, fine, then we just want to leave it here, by the door. She goes on, “Does any Ukrainian here have Scotch?” Since no one replies, she gets the glue stick out of her purse and they glue the petition to the wall.
The top of the petition sheet, with a fist on it, has two words, which together represent a play on words. They sound the same in both Russian and Ukrainian: “pravda” means ‘truth’ as one word. When it’s 2 words: ‘prav’ + ‘da’ as on the sheet, it means ‘I am in the right’ + ‘yes.’ I just gave you a glimpse of how the word ‘pravda’ was formed in the fist place. 😉
Notice how many English words it takes me to transcribe the meaning of one all-encompassing short word ‘pravda.’ And they say that Russian words are too long and complex, which hinders the development of the language and the nation! This is why, as one linguistical theory still repeated till today postulates, US and UK, with their shorter English words, were able to overtake Russia and USSR. Those who read my blog, know that’s all ‘bull crap in chef’s salad.’
This obviously is yet another conspiracy to try to make Russians feel inferior – a feat that actually temporarily succeeded – but not any more.
The linguistical conspiracy that I am unraveling now, along with related historical conspiracy, has roots in processes that took place 1000-300 years ago in Europe and Russia. I am deep into investigation and reconstruction of those events. I will happily share the results of my findings with all once my study is complete.
Oh, and please remind me to tell you all the real etymology of the English word ‘truth,’ as well as words such as ‘lady,’ ‘lad,’ ‘Scotland,’ ‘London.’ You are gonna love it! I personally find it very funny. But no spoilers!

Video of the rally in front of the US embassy in Kiev:
I didn’t want to post the video below because it’s too disgusting and disturbing. But I think it’s necessary to show what is really going on in Ukraine and what dark forces have taken it over. Notice the contrast with the excessively polite and meek protest in the first video. These thugs, unlike the peaceful people in the first video, aren’t hiding their faces. They obviously don’t have anything to fear – people fear them. Also notice that there are very few people in Kharkov, but the destruction and mayhem they cause is huge; their threat is so extreme that UN emergency retrieval vehicles are sent!
Russia celebrated The Russia Day on June 12. This is a new holiday, established after 1991. I can’t say I personally care for it, but it is widely celebrated. On this day, a gang of Ukrainian extremists gathered in front of the Russian consulate in Kharkov and attacked/vandalized the building. The police made some weak attempts to protect those who tried to exit, but did nothing to prevent vandalism. Emergency UN vehicles had to pick up and whisk away any consulate workers who happened to be stranded inside. This is the second attack on the same Kharkov consulate in one year; also, last year there was an attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev.
It is well-known that Kharkov, together with Odessa, are two of the most pro-Russian cities in the left-over Ukraine territory; therefore, the Kiev junta makes a special effort to invade the city with ukro-nazi thugs in order to intimidate the population and shift the balance of power. See the very educational and telling footage below for details.
The thugs, who throw paint at the building and who try to attack cars, yell mostly IN RUSSIAN (note that in the video above everything was in UKRAINIAN), except some phrases in poor English. This is done on purpose – to stick it, so to speak. The message is: ‘See, we have successfully created anti-Russia out of Kharkov, where those who speak your language hate you.’ Therefore, we are dealing here with the most disgusting dregs of society and with the most destructive agenda.
There are very rude words on the asphalt mentioning Putin, which I won’t translate.
They yell in a mix of Russian and broken English, while throwing rocks and paint at the consulate building and cars: “Where are the UN peacekeepers? Shame! Where is the help we are looking for? We (!?) are the peacekeepers in Donbass. Shame on you, we need help (LR: they are right on that count; they really do need a lot of help – of the psychiatric variety). Where is the NATO contingent (!) we are waiting for? We are disappointed in police and SBU (LR: for not letting them destroy the Russian consulate and kill everyone there). Where are the peacekeepers in Donetsk and Lugansk? Show the whole world, show to Putin that he is mother***er (AGAIN IN RUSSIAN). Pay attention at 4:03 – one of these geniuses says, perhaps thinking it sounds profound: “If you have to make peace with terrorists, make peace with ISIS.”

In January 2015 I wrote about possible false flags in Ukraine. Just recently we discussed the potential Chernobyl 2.0 catastrophe in Ukraine as the radioactive woods around Chernobyl caught on fire, something the firemen were extinguishing without proper gear and protection. If Chernobyl 2.0 got out of control, this would have been a continent-wide problem, especially for the nearby Kiev and the EU, due to prevailing continental winds. It seems Kiev either managed to control the fire, or simply hushed it up (and we know who helped them to do the latter).
But now everyone, including EU, is worried about the new occurrence: since yesterday, a giant oil and gas depot is burning near Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Fire has been raging for over 24 hours and so far the firefighters are powerless to stop it. One section of the oil depot, with 17 oil reservoirs, has already been destroyed and the fire spread to the section No 2. As of yesterday: more than one half of oil reservoirs already burned down; 1 person died, scores wounded.
The sky is black with soot and smoke, people are told to wear damp cloths over their faces, but little else is being explained to them. The situation is dire. Local residents are being evacuated in the 2 km radius and it may be expanded to 10 km.
To add insult to injury, a giant Ukraine arms depot (Ukraine army arsenal) is located only 50 meters from the burning oil depot. Next to all this is located a natural gas pipeline and gas storage depot… And don’t ask what kind of genius placed these three next to each other!
According to experts, if the fire reaches gas papeline and gas reservoirs, there will be a giant explosion. And how will the military arsenal nearby react? It’s anyone’s guess. Kiev, population nearly 3 mln, is located just 20 or so km from there and it will be in direct harm’s way.
Meanwhile, EU is bracing itself for possible acid rains as a result of the heavy black soot rising high into the sky.
Is anyone surprised? Not me. This should have been expected. I predict that more Ukraine catastrophes, whether real false flags or simply accidental – man-made or natural – disasters will continue taking place.
All this is happening in Ukraine as a direct result of the civil war, brutal violence, gross mismanagement and country-wide collapse. These are all direct and predictable consequences of the February 22, 2014 violent coup by Ukraine oligarchs and ukro-nazis, backed by the West. The current power in Kiev runs exclusively on violence, hatred and denial; plus, corruption, betrayal of the country’s interests and wholesale theft of the few remaining Ukrainian assets and resources to foreign interests. The only result of such intentions can be self-destruction. What is now in Kiev is not a government – it’s a demolition crew, working hard to destroy what little is left of the poor Ukraine, on orders from Washington.
Unfortunately, after ukro-nazi regime killed off, threw in jail or chased out of the country all honest and smart people, there is no one left to protest or to even understand what’s really going on. As such, Ukrainians are meekly following their path to the slaughter house, organized for them by the enemies, both foreign and domestic (and we all know who those are).
I predicted back in 2014 that Ukraine would be squeezed out of all juices and tossed off like that useless dry lemon skin… And here it is. Incidentally, EU is already indicating it’s tired of Ukraine (and, frankly, I don’t blame them), saying they can’t continue paying for it… Again, as predicted in 2014! More in PREDICTIONS on top bar.
Here are some of the videos of the fire:
Ukraine and the EU may suffer from acid rain, following a huge blaze at an oil and gas storage facility near Kiev. Local residents described to RT a Silent Hill-like picture of the area, saying that black sky, rain and smoke are everywhere. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/8ofn8p
The evacuation of weapons from the Ukraine army arsenal located in the Vasilkovsky region of the Kiev oblast has begun, according to authorities. The giant arms depot is located 50 meters from the burning oil depot.
The very latest info and video from RT!
Huge plumes of black smoke billow from burning oil depot near Kiev. Published on Jun 9, 2015
A massive fire has been raging at a Ukrainian oil depot on the outskirts of Kiev. It has triggered a series of explosions that reportedly killed up to four people. The Ukrainian authorities have confirmed three firefighters were among the fatalities. There are fears the toxic fumes could now threaten locals in Kiev.

2014 Photo Op. Victoria Nuland, Assistant US Secretary of State in charge of Eurasia, gives out cookies to anti-Yanukovich euro-maidan protesters in Kiev – a direct interference of a foreign official in the affairs of a sovereign country. Yanukovich is to be soon unseated as legitimately elected president of Ukraine and forced to flee as a result of the February 22, 2014 coup.
Kiev, 2014. Victoria Nuland and US ambassador to Ukraine Pyatt give out bread and hamburgers to Ukraine’s Berkut police. Just a few days later these same policemen will be burned, beaten and humiliated by ‘peaceful euro-maidan protesters.’ In December of 2013, Nuland famously bragged to the Washington Press Club that US spent $5 billion to ‘subvert Ukraine’ in its bid to weaken and sabotage Russia.

THE REAL SOURCE OF VICTORIA NULAND’S RUSSOPHOBIA: ‘EXCEPTIONAL’ AMERICAN IN 1982 SOVIET ODESSA
I left, perhaps the juiciest (and for me, the funniest) bit for last. To many people out there, Victoria Nuland, the woman who arrogantly and carelessly admitted in December 2013 that US spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine and create anti-Russia out of it; the woman who orchestrated the Kiev maidan and violent coup; the woman who with a flick of her wrist dismissed and appointed Ukraine governments; the woman who said ‘f*ck Europe’ – is one scary American Zionist and neocon. To most, she is known as Assistant US State Secretary in charge of Eurasia. Her job is to go around subverting countries, organizing violent coups and instigating color revolutions.
But very few realize that she is in fact a small-minded, stuck up little b*tch who never grew up and who always enjoyed humiliating others. Oh, you know I wouldn’t say something like this lightly. I’ve known she is exactly that due to the energy she emanates and due to her calibration, which to some people seems too esoteric. Now I’ve got tangible proof – and it’s to die for!
You heard me right! Just like in the case of Poroshenko and his criminal daddy, it all goes back to Odessa, the city of my childhood. The story below references a well-known international young pioneer camp in Odessa. Summer camps for children were called ‘pioneer camps’ in the USSR. The camp was called Molodaya Gvardia (English: The Young Guard, reference to the young Komsomol/Communist members during the 1918 Civil War, who fought bravely). I knew that camp: it was located on the beach at the far-away outskirts of the city. I’ve never gone there myself, since I grew up five minutes from the beach and since I always preferred to travel and explore for my summer vacation. The story below mentions semechki, which means ‘roasted sunflower seeds’ – remember I once mentioned on FuturisTrendcast that semechki is Russians and Ukrainians’ favorite snack. Like popcorn for Americans, albeit healthier.
Russian author, Inna Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva, tells this story:
“It happened in 1982. I worked as a children’s camp guide (Russian: pioner vozhataya) at Molodaya Gvardia in Odessa. Sorry to say, but I had a huge fight in which blood was drawn, with one American girl. She was also a camp guide who came from the US as part of an exchange program. I once caught her entertaining herself by throwing semechki in the dirt under her feet and laughing when little Ukrainian kids picked up and ate these dirty semechki. I remembered forever the name of that b*tch. She was called Vicky. For that fight I received a public Komsomol reprimand and they threw me out of camp.
Earlier today, I read with great surprise in Nuland’s bio that she worked in 1982 in Odessa’s Molodaya Gvardia as pioner vozhataya, being part of the exchange program, and that her impressions of the USSR were of the most negative kind. I always thought I did the right thing giving her that thrashing. I haven’t regretted it then and don’t regret today. Not enough though; should’ve given her more.”

HAPPY MAY DAY, everyone!
May Day (Pervomay) is traditionally celebrated in Russia and beyond with flowers, songs and happy outings.
Early video of May Day celebrations in Russia: #Vladivostok and #Khabarovsk (the Far East) mass parades on video. #Moscow has several different parades and rallies – early footage from the Red Square rally.
#Pervomay #May1 #MayDay #Russia #RedSquare #Crimea
More spectacular fresh footage of May Day demonstrations on Moscow’s Red Square and Crimea. 2.5 mln people participated in Moscow May Day events, and 70,000 came out in Crimea:
Sorry I have to talk about gruesome subjects such as #Chernobyl, #falseflags and #Donbass war in #Ukraine on a day like this. But it is today’s reality and it’s important for humanity to open our eyes and see the truth – so we can move forward.
As you will also see below, historically, May Day and Chernobyl have become intrinsically connected.
FREE Earth Shift Report 4: MAY DAY or CHERNOBYL 2.0?
Does Chernobyl fire threaten a new nuclear disaster? Who’s behind it? Who will be affected most? What really happened in 1986? False flags and other news from Ukraine. New warnings and predictions.
According to the official Kiev, the raging forest fire in the Chernobyl exclusion zone has been localized by Ukrainian firemen. Kiev admits to the fire continuing full force over the area of 70 hectares, with additional areas smoldering. According to various sources, the fire has spread over a large area of woods 20 km from the buried reactor and near the nuclear waste burial sites. The waste from the Chernobyl catastrophe and other Ukrainian nuclear sites has been buried in the area since 1986.
However, there is other nuclear waste in the area as well. In 2014 I wrote about the new contract the Kiev junta signed with EU and US: according to this contract, Ukraine’s Chernobyl now serves as a burial ground for the West’s nuclear waste. In the country whose economy is shut and unable to perform its normal functions this is one of the few remaining ways to make money. For more read: Ukraine Scandals! USA Raids Ukrainian Gold and EU Sends Nuclear Waste.
The problem with the fire in such area is that it re-awakens radio nuclides that have been dormant in the ground and trees all these years. Trees absorbed a lot of radiation from the Chernobyl catastrophe, saving enormous number of lives in 1986. The radiation thus awakened then becomes volatile, spreading with winds. If inhaled, the radiation is much more dangerous than the ground radiation. Some scientists go as far as suggesting that Chernobyl 2 is upon us.
There is a lot of conflicting information coming out of Kiev. If true, localization of fire is a positive. Per Ukraine sources, the fire is still raging, but isn’t spreading. However, according to Greenpeace, there are 10,000 hectares of the radioactive Chernobyl forest that is presently burning. Greenpeace says this number is based on their analysis of satellite images. According to unnamed sources the fire has originated inside of one of the nuclear waste burial sites.
RAW: Firefighting in radioactive forests of Chernobyl zone Ukrainian fire fighters reportedly managed to localise a massive forest fire close to the abandoned Chernobyl nuclear power station near Pripyat on Wednesday.Chernobyl fires send radiation particles in atmosphere Seventy hectares of forest near the abandoned Chernobyl nuclear power plant are still on fire…. while a larger area of woodland is smouldering. But the ongoing blaze isn’t the biggest concern……
There is a panic in Kiev and those areas of Europe that are likely to get affected. I am being told that doctors in Kiev recommend locals smear liquid iodine over their skin, drink iodine, and also drink vodka. On the other hand, experts are saying that the kind of radiation that is spreading through the air as fire and wind activate radio-nuclides cannot be helped by iodine. A better advice is to close windows and doors, avoid going out, and if you must, use respiratory masks.
According to Kiev journalist in exile Yury Kot, the smell of smoke and soot has already reached Kiev, which means that the wind is presently blowing towards the capital, some 100 km south of Chernobyl. Politicians are already evacuating their children, while telling people that everything is under control. Yury Kot video in Russian.
The difficulty is that today is May 1, or May Day, which traditionally was celebrated with parades and outings all over the USSR, and generally, the Russian world (elsewhere around the world, as well). Will it be allowed under the current junta is a question mark. On May 9th, many in Kiev were planning to celebrate the traditional Victory Day despite junta’s prohibitions and threats of physical harm. Will they still come out? Is it dangerous? Was it a deliberate provocation to sabotage celebrations? How is all this connected? Questions abound.
If you recall, I did warn in January about the possibility of false flags or provocations related to nuclear stations in Ukraine. I also recently said in a reply to one of the readers that the Mother Earth is protesting against the humans’ treatment of herself, the Earth’s animals, and each other. Therefore, we get all kinds of disturbances from the Mother Earth. Unfortunately, Ukraine turned into an open-ended and unpredictable Pandora’s Box of disasters, just as I had warned. The only thing is a certainty: Ukraine will continue experiencing turmoil and disasters, unless and until the people awaken sufficiently, and the EU understands fully what they have gotten themselves into. But for that to happen Ukraine has to sink to the very bottom, so it could rise again. It appears there is still ways to go to reach that illusive bottom – so far it seems the fall of Ukraine is endless and bottomless. Although, I do notice first signs of awakening; it is happening, slowly but surely. Such things are impossible without extreme shake-ups. Remember my timeline for Ukraine: it is 2016-2018. We are still some time away from this timeline. See PREDICTIONS and OLIGARCH WARS for more.
So far, the nuclear false flag many predicted materialized as burning radioactive forests around Chernobyl. But warnings about a possibility of another nuclear plant disaster (Ukraine has 4 in total), continue to sound.
In Chernobyl it seems to be an act of God, or Mother Nature herself. Or is it?
On the map, we can clearly see that Chernobyl is located close to the river Dnieper, flowing into Black Sea. If USSR didn’t contain ground water contamination, the entire Black Sea basin and at least part of the Mediterranean could’ve been contaminated.
Interesting coincidence: last time Chernobyl woods experienced a fire was 1992, after Ukraine and Russia split up after the collapse of the USSR. let’s look at the map. Not only Kiev is next door, but Belarus, with capital Minsk, is right up there as well. If I were karma and wanted to send a powerful, or even shocking, message to humans that they are on the wrong path and that Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians (or rather Malorussians and Novorussians) should stay together, this would probably be top of my list.
The Chernobyl exclusion zone is located in the very north – northwest of Ukraine and just north of Kiev. Russian border is some distance to the north-east. Adjacent to this area is Belarus to the north. When Chernobyl disaster happened in 1986, the capital of Ukraine Kiev was affected directly, being located only 100 km south. Soviet leadership drew criticism at the time that they didn’t warn the Kiev citizens to stay indoors. As a result, hundreds of thousands in Kiev came out for the traditional May Day demonstration and festivities.
I want to draw everyone’s attention to the fact that this fire happened on the 29th anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe. Coincidence? Some speculate that Kiev junta authorities set the fire deliberately in time for the first EU-Ukraine summit that just took place in Kiev (and to coincide with the anniversary of the original event) in order to compel the EU to give them more money for the construction of the new sarcophagus. But in the end, say proponents of this theory, Kiev could not control the fire they had started.
The original sarcophagus built by the USSR in 1986 has been slowly weakening under the constant bombardment of radiation from within. Its term expired 10 years ago. Presently, the new sarcophagus is being built, to be completed in 2017 at the total cost of $2bln, but Kiev claims that they are still short of funds. The new donation from a pool of countries, including Russia, EU and others, is about 180 mln euros. Russia also just announced an additional contribution of 10 mln euros towards the sarcophagus construction: Россия даст Украине денег на новый саркофаг в Чернобыле. However, I would watch very closely where all this money is going.
As I said in OLIGARCH WARS, unfortunately, Ukraine’s elites look at any money coming into the country as an opportunity to enrich themselves. According to the above-referenced Kiev journalist Yury Kot, Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk regularly writes off millions from the country’s budget, which then gets distributed between the top bras in Kiev in predetermined proportions. This is at the same time as millions don’t know what they will eat tomorrow.
So, was the Chernobyl fire a deliberate action by the greedy Kiev elites? Are they crazy enough to play with radioactive fire? Considering Kiev closeness to the danger zone, I don’t think so. They are crazy, but not crazy enough to risk their personal well-being. Still, the 29th anniversary of the catastrophe is too much of a coincidence. It’s tempting to think that karma is starting to catch up to Ukraine and Kiev junta. Perhaps to a degree this is the case.
However, there is another tantalizing theory that makes a lot of sense. Perhaps the Kiev elites aren’t sick and twisted enough to set the fire to the radioactive forest. But there is someone else in Ukraine who is more than capable…
Read on to find out!
In the ’90s I met a couple – engineers from Kiev, who came to the US with their two teenage daughters in tow. They told me that Chernobyl was the last straw, which eventually led them to emigrate. Some people in Ukraine, especially in Kiev, felt betrayed by Soviet authorities for not advising them on time of Chernobyl’s health danger. Once they learned about all the risks of Chernobyl, that couple made a quick decision. He stayed in Kiev and continued working to bring home bacon; she, together with their 2 children, moved to a sea resort in Caucasus. By 1989 they left the country and emigrated to the US.
In defence of the Soviet authorities I must say that it was the first such disaster in history and they didn’t know exactly how to react. The traditional desire to keep everything calm and discreet to avoid panic, also made them delay going public.
But look at how Japanese authorities behaved after Fukushima – not any better, and likely worse. Saving face is a big thing in Asian cultures and Fukushima presented an extremely embarrassing situation for the Japanese government and for the whole country. Trying to avoid panic and keeping tight control of what you say in public isn’t a surprising reaction by any government. Governments after all, consist of mere humans. In such open-ended and confusing situation any move will create a problem, and any action, or lack thereof, will draw criticism. You are damned if you do and you are damned if you don’t.
But beyond that, this desire to keep things calm, discreet and appear in control is something embedded genetically in the Russian cultural code. It has to do with Russia’s role as the Global Balancer. See more about that in PREDICTIONS (I will also expand on that in the future Earth Shift Reports – stay tuned).
However, if we look at the situation fairly, USSR did absolutely everything to localize the catastrophe and cap it quickly. Should they have kept public better appraised of their actions? Absolutely, they should have! In that case, there would have been fewer silly hoaxes and falsifications floating around… and who knows, the future of the entire country may have turned out differently.
But this was a major lesson Russia had to learn – how to communicate with her own citizens and the entire world, not to mention how to promote herself and how to put her best foot forward. This education is far from complete, and Russia still draws lots of criticism in this department, but there is major progress.
The stellar ability to communicate, promote, do PR and manipulate public opinion is the defining characteristic of the Anglo-American culture. In some ways, including this, the Anglo-American culture is a complete antipode to Russia.
To illustrate how alien it was for Russians to promote themselves, or even to put their best foot forward, here is my personal story. When I arrived to the US in the ’90s, I was told I needed a resume. I had a very hard time trying to put all my achievements in the form of a resume, because to me it signified unnatural and embarrassing bragging. My American friends had a hard time explaining to me that it was how things were done in the US. You aren’t the only one, they said, all Russians have trouble promoting themselves. Once I managed to put that resume together, I went to an interview, after which I got a lucrative job offer the very next day. When I moved from CT to New York, I got a job on Wall Street within three days. I do think it was because of me, not because of what my resume said. I knew Russian scientists who were hired by phone, without any resume and with pretty limited English. My point is, there is a big difference between propaganda and the real truth.
And the truth is this. Without any pomp or PR, in Chernobyl the Soviet Union managed to prevent the ground water contamination – a major heroic feat. If they didn’t, radioactive contamination could have spread as far as the Black Sea and Mediterranean. The Chernobyl reactor was capped and isolated in record time. Very few people know that not the entire Chernobyl has been closed down. Some of its reactors are still functioning, supplying part of Ukraine with electric power.
USSR also tried to prevent the loss of life. In the effort to spare lives, one of the things the Soviet government did was purchase from Germany some very expensive robots for work in the reactor vicinity instead of people. The huge expense turned out a waste. Robots’ electronics stopped working from radiation, proving them useless. It became necessary to send people into the worst affected areas.
The hoax I have seen floating around the West for years was that several million people died from Chernobyl.
Let me just dispel this hoax right away. In fact there are so many BS hoaxes floating around, such as: Stalin killed 20 million in gulag (or, according to some ‘sources,’ it was more like 1/4 of all Russians); 20 million killed as a result of golodomor in Ukraine (holodomor, as they transliterate it incorrectly into English, which would mean in Russian ‘dying from cold,’ instead of ‘hunger.’).
I have news for you: IF 20 million here and 20 million there were casually lost every few years in the USSR, there would have been no one left either in Russia, Ukraine, or Belarus. This is a statistical impossibility.
The only true number as far as millions of victims is this: 27 million SOVIET citizens, primarily Russians, but also millions of Ukrainians and Belorussians, plus members of most other 100 nationalities, died as a result of Hitler’s aggression and WWII (aka, Great Patriotic War.) Period. End of story! This is the only number that is a true historic fact. This is why EVERY single citizen of the former USSR was touched by that war. Every single family lost someone and/or experienced extreme hardship. In terms of the USSR population of 250 million people – this is what the loss of 27 million means! Every single family was touched and experienced a loss!!
There is a lot of confusion about all this in the West, but also in the post-Soviet space, particularly Ukraine and Baltics. It is important that those who are after the real truth, and not an expedient lie, understand one simple thing: for the past 24 years Ukraine (in addition to Baltics, Georgia, Poland, Romania) has been built up as anti-Russia on Russia’s borders. There are three forces that have been working hard on that: 1. the unified West, primarily US, Canada, Poland and Baltics, but Germany wasn’t far behind – all for their own ulterior motives; 2. western Ukraine ukro-nazis who want revenge on Russia after WWII defeat; 3. Ukraine oligarchs who control the media and who can only keep all the rich Soviet inheritance they managed to loot in the ’90s, IF Ukraine is separate from Russia.
Ukraine MSM and politicians put out the numbers of 20 million dead from golodomor and several million dead from Chernobyl. Such inflated numbers were necessary in order to justify painting Russia as enemy and aggressor. These numbers were gladly parroted by Western MSM and history books. The story of all these forces meshing together becomes more and more interesting the deeper we dig. It is described in my new EARTH SHIFT REPORT: OLIGARCH WARS. You can read this report on LadaRay.info, where it is available for a donation. Read now!
But here is the truth. In the comment section of my recent article Comrades Roosevelt and Gregory Peck: When Hollywood Sent Its Scripts For Stalin’s Approval I answered in detail a reader question about Stalin, the real number of victims and much more. (To understand better what I am talking about, please see my comment – here is the link: 2015/04/17 at 9:57 pm, in reply to Nemo1024. If you go to the comment section of this article, you may read the entire discussion.)
Here is my story about the ‘victims’ of Chernobyl. I did mention the family from Kiev I met in the US in the ’90s. These people are all alive and in excellent health, no one died from radiation, despite having lived in the nearby Kiev.
But I have a better story. I grew up in Odessa, as many of you know. Being located over 500 km south, Odessa wasn’t affected by Chernobyl. We did have some people relocated from Pripyat’, Chernobyl’s satellite city, population 50,000. Most residents had been employed by the Chernobyl Nuclear Station. These were the people who were affected most directly; they lost everything, but they were evacuated pretty quickly.
Other categories that were affected gravely were the first response policemen, firemen and large numbers of servicemen. Unfortunately, the majority of those who perished were Russian soldiers – it is traditional to send the army to assist with disaster remediation in Russia. However, within days (actually within hours) they started sending specialists. Those were people who knew how to deal with radiation, and my theory is that the nuclear energy specialists are actually less predisposed to radiation-related health damage. Call it natural selection – they go into this field because they are genetically capable of dealing with it. These people tend to incarnate for this purpose.
I grew up two blocks from the famous Odessa Polytechnic Institute. The father of Space Exploration and Cosmonautics Sergey Korolev, who sent the first Sputnik and first man, Yury Gagarin, into space, was Odessa Polytech alumnus. See more about that in Earth Shift Report 2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY.
The Polytechnic Institute was also famous for its Nuclear Energy Department. Some of the best specialists were prepared there. As a matter of fact my older cousin Sasha was an alumnus. Upon graduation, Sasha abandoned the nuclear energy field, making a career in computer science and becoming the director of the Computer Data Division of the Moldavian government in Kishinev. But before that Sasha made ‘headlines’ when he rejected a very flattering offer to join the KGB (he was anti-establisment and anti-KGB at the time – weren’t we all when we were young).
One of our family friends also attended the Nuclear Department of the Polytech. Almost as soon as Chernobyl happened, he enlisted as a volunteer specialist. We all were semi-worried about his safety, but everyone remembered the story how once he got drunk and fell from the third floor balcony. He got up like nothing happened, de-dusted himself and went home. It appeared that man’s guardian angel had to work overtime, but always managed to protect him from harm.
There was a strict rotation schedule at Chernobyl and after a month or two people were sent back home, while the new crew would be brought in. That was done for obvious reasons: limit the cumulative radiation absorbed by one’s body. Our friend, after his term ended, volunteered to stay for another term. They did pay very well, after all. Everyone was yelling at him that he should go home, that he was really risking his hair and not having any progeny. Eventually he came home, got married and had children.
Conclusions: millions dead from exposure to Chernobyl are a hoax. It’s not even hundreds of thousands. It was several thousand, possibly 10-15 thousand, if we take into account the unfortunate citizens of the nearby Belarus. Some people did get sick. They later recovered and went on with their lives. Yury Kot I mentioned above said he got hospitalized with radiation sickness back in 1986. Check out the video link with his interview above: he is still alive and looking good.
In the comment I referenced above, I explained why losing millions again and again in the USSR, Russia or Ukraine would be statistically impossible. Do read that comment to fully understand my reasoning. To put it in perspective: 27 million dead in WWII meant that every single person and every single family in the 250 million people USSR lost someone, including devastating losses in my own family (see: Happy Victory Day, Fr. Merkel! My Open Postcard to the German Chancellor). Several thousand lost would look exactly how I am describing it here: I knew no one who died from exposure to Chernobyl, despite knowing personally several people who were there.
Let’s return back to today. Should this fire not be extinguished soon, who will be affected most?
Russians announced they were boosting radiation monitoring near borders with Ukraine in view of the situation. However, Russia isn’t in big danger.
Besides Kiev, the other closest capital is Minsk, Belarus, which will celebrate both May Day and Victory Day with extensive parades and festivities. Another large city to the east is Kharkov (2 mln people). Warsaw is 650 km, Moscow 800 km, and Berlin 1,200 km away.
The important thing to remember is where the wind blows in those parts.
Presently, they say the wind is blowing south, towards Kiev. But usually, winds tend to blow north-west in that area of the world. This is what happened in 1986. That time, the biggest impact fell on Belarus, and after Belarus, on Poland, Baltics, Scandinavia and little on Germany. The multimillion Kiev and nearby central Ukraine were exposed as well. Of course, the further you were from the source, the less you had to worry.
Will the wind continue blowing south, or will it change direction and begin blowing north-west? If Kiev fails to take care of the fire, Russians, Belorussians and possibly Europeans, may start sending their own helicopters and emergency crews. No one can afford another Chernobyl.
This disaster is another proof of how incredibly incompetent the Kiev authorities are. This event will be another nail in their coffin.
Catastrophes as a sign of things to come
There are various scientific and conspiracy theories about what really happened in Chernobyl in 1986. As mystical futurist, I want to stress Chernobyl’s karmic and global significance. Conspiracy or not, it became the precursor and harbinger to the collapse of the USSR. I was a teen at the time, but I saw that connection from the beginning. The same year three shocking disasters happened that shifted the energy in the country. I remember thinking: poor Gorbachev, he just recently came to power and such events don’t bode well for his term in office. These events were: the Chernobyl disaster; first in many years train collision in which a large number of military personnel had died; the Russian Titanic – the Black Sea cruise ship Admiral Nakhimov drowned after being hit by a large cargo ship near Novorossiysk, leaving over 700 dead and missing (end of August 1986).
Whether such events were human error or sabotage, one thing was certain. As USSR’s central power weakened, being questioned by the increasing number of people, terrible accidents and catastrophes became more common place. The number of catastrophes always increase during the times of sweeping change and tectonic shifts, such as the one we are experiencing today. They also increase when central authority weakens.
What is happening in Ukraine today is characteristic of a massive shift. Ukraine is trying to re-define itself. They tried to live in a lie, but it didn’t work. They are now staring a catastrophe in the eye.
Who started Chernobyl fire?
So, is the fire an act of god and a karmic return, or is it enacted by humans? As I said, I don’t believe even idiots from the Kiev government are crazy enough to start such fire. But there is someone else in Ukraine who is. For the past several days I have been hearing an interesting story. When I put the two and two together, here is the picture that emerged. The infamous ‘right sector’ headed by western Ukraine Bandera follower, ukro-nazi Yarosh was financed by oligarch Kolomoysky. At one point in 2014 Yarosh, Kolomoysky and his right hand Korban became such buddies that the right sector’s headquarters even moved to Dnepropetrovsk, where Kolomoysky was governor. After Kolomoysky recently resigned, urgently flying first to Israel and then to the US, the right sector was left without financing. I describe this entire thriller-like story in detail in the OLIGARCH WARS. It is known that Kolomoysky left the country after having a heart-to-heart with US ambassador Pyatt.
Since then, there have been persistent rumors that the right sector militants are being hunted down all over the country.
Poroshenko is behind on executing the Minsk 2 agreements. Kiev is now being pressured by the EU to fulfil its obligations. At the EU-Ukraine summit in Kiev, Brussels reps told Poroshenko that Kiev has no chance of being considered for EU membership until they complete a list of EU demands.
Poroshenko, unhappy with EU’s position, urged the EU to cancel visa regime for Ukrainians. The EU response: we can’t do that because Ukraine’s eastern border (where DNR and LNR are located) is controlled by Russia. If we open our borders to Ukraine, we are afraid that there will be uncontrollable inflow of Russians into the EU. Of course in reality EU is afraid of the uncontrollable inflow of Ukrainians, including armed nazi crazies – but blame Russia for everything when in doubt.
EU also told Poroshenko that he really has to get a move on disarming any illegal armed units, per Minsk 2. This means the right sector militants have to either join the regular army or national guard, or disarm. DNR and LNR have been reporting that those ‘volunteer’ ukro-nazi battalions that are in Donbass tend to break the truce more often. They still shell peaceful citizens daily, despite cease-fire. DNR reports getting calls from Ukraine military asking them to join in the shelling of the positions of their own ukro-nazi volunteer battalions. So far DNR isn’t reacting to these pleas, being faithful to the Minsk agreements.
Today, DNR reported that an unusually well-equipped group of what looked like Western special forces armed with non-Kalashnikov, Western made rifles, began an armed shootout with a group of ukro-nazis They killed 4 and loaded the remaining 7 into a Volkswagen van. After that, they left the area and the shelling of Donetsk had stopped. DNR intelligence reports that the intervention was executed by non-Ukrainians, possibly NATO or private contractor from the EU. These people were equipped with GPS-powered radios and other Western equipment. There are reports of the right sector and nazi battalion members being disarmed and hunted down in Dnepropetrovsk after Kolomoysky’s demise.
What does all this mean? This means that the EU is serious about enforcing Minsk 2 agreements. It is interesting that the US, at least Obama personally, is on the same page. The scenario is playing out exactly as I predicted in my early article about striking parallels between the Georgia 2008 war and Ukraine 2014-15. Just like in the case of Georgia, US and EU first yell a lot and threaten to punish Russia. After a while though they realize that certain deals in world affairs are impossible without Russia. This concerns, among other things, Iran negotiations and the Yemen conflict. It also turns out they can’t deal with Ukraine without Russia either, as hinted by various EU and German officials.
Another thing that scares EU are the unruly nazis running around with guns. This is a danger not only for Ukraine itself, but for Europe as well. And they are right.
The EU reps told the following to Poroshenko in Kiev: ‘make sure Minsk cease-fire is observed. Don’t break the peace so not to give the chance to the Russian propaganda to malign us (with truth, apparently -LR). Also don’t you dare attack Donbass so not to give the opportunity for the Russian separatists to counter-attack.
They are right to warn Poroshenko to behave. Head of DNR Zakharchenko warned that if Kiev breaks the truce and attacks again, there will be no Minsk 3. “This time, we won’t stop in Kiev; we’ll keep going,” said Zakharchenko.
There is a real deal hunt for ukro-nazi militants all over Ukraine. This is undoubtedly sanctioned by the US and EU. In fact, in the Kiev euro-maidan coup both the peaceful protesters and vicious ukro-nazis were simply convenient patsies. They were needed to overturn Yanukovich and establish the dictate of the West in Kiev. Now they outlived their usefulness. They either have to fall in line or disappear.
This repeats exactly the events of the 1930s in Germany. After coming to power, Hitler organized the ‘night of the long knives,’ eliminating his buddy Rem and his well-trained militants, first having used them for his purposes. If course Rem was getting out of hand threatening Hitler with his militants. Today, ukro-nazis also dare to threaten Kiev with turning their weapons on them, attempting at one point to storm president’s administration. Really, they never learn!
The power in Kiev doesn’t belong to Poroshenko or Central Rada. The power in Kiev is concentrated in a different set of hands and in a different building. That’s why they can never succeed – the new maidan won’t be allowed by the puppet masters. And if they refuse to fall in line, they’ll never survive. As mentioned above, the entire spread is revealed in EARTH SHIFT REPORT: OLIGARCH WARS.
Here is my scenario of the Chernobyl fire: having realised that they had been betrayed by the regime they brought to power, the right sector militants took revenge by setting fire to the radioactive Chernobyl forest. As mentioned previously, the fire started in one of the nuclear waste burial sites. This in itself is suspicious. The anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy sends an additional message. Only ukro-nazis are crazy enough to risk contaminating Kiev and a big part of their country, with potential contamination of parts of Europe. They are not from Kiev – most of them are from western Ukraine, which is further to the west/south-west. If they killed peaceful citizens in Donbass, burned people in Odessa and tortured those who disagreed with them, why would they have any qualms starting Chernobyl 2?
Is another nuclear event possible in Ukraine?
There is persistent talk of a potential catastrophe on one of Ukraine’s functioning nuclear stations. Rumors of that are ongoing since last year. The good news is: the fact that so many people talk about it may have prevented such false flag.
Another thing actively circulated is that the Kiev army is amassing forces to attack Donbass. The only question is when. DNR army spokesperson Eduard Basurin reported that DNR intelligence expects provocations involving heavy shelling on May 8th and 9th, to be blamed by Ukraine on DNR and LNR.
What I want to stress is: people talking and yelling about it does help prevent provocations and false flags. There is ‘operation Glasnost’ underway. The goal is to make public and distribute in social media all the information that becomes available, thus taking away the real weapon of those who lie and manipulate. They can only succeed if the other side is silent. The more truth and warnings are pre-emptively released, the harder it is to execute false flags and perpetuate lies and hoaxes.
There is also the factor of the quiet, behind the scenes Russian diplomacy. Russia can help geopolitically through a series of international levers available to her.
Will Kiev make another attempt to attack Donbass? They may try, but they will not succeed. Moreover, every time they try, DNR and LNR will advance further, expanding their republics. DNR leader Zakharchenko announced that if any other oblasts of Ukraine want to join Novorossia, they are all welcome.
At present, most military experts anticipate Kiev attack around June, but no later than mid-summer. I have not formed my opinion yet as the information coming in is very conflicting. There is a factor many of these experts don’t take into account. It is the EU, first of all, Germany and France. They continue putting pressure on Ukraine to fulfil Minsk 2 agreements. I anticipate that EU will have no choice but to continue increasing pressure on Ukraine to behave. Having done terribly throughout 2014, EU will have no choice but to try mending relations with Russia and to continue restraining Ukraine. EU, primarily Germany, will also continue putting pressure on the US. I know it sounds almost comical, but Germany does have some leverage. It is mainly moral, such as shaming US into observing certain rules agreed upon in the Western world.
It goes like this: Merkel to Obama: if we do not stop Ukraine war, all these armed thugs will eventually cross our borders and destabilize our countries. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you? Those sophisticated weapons you are sending them will eventually end up sold to ISIS or Assad, or a rogue arms dealer. These weapons may eventually be turned against US, NATO or EU. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?
My prediction is that Merkel’s reasoning will work, actually. Basically, EU will now act as a restraining factor in relation to the US. This was the role EU should have played from the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. Instead they were one of the main instigators. Merkel is getting a lot of pressure from her own population, certain politicians, business, and increasingly, from some of the EU countries.
We would usually mention Greece, Hungary, possibly Czechia and Slovakia here.
I want to mention Bulgaria. I wrote about it previously. Bulgaria, being traditionally a close ally of Russia, to the degree that it was once called USSR’s 16th republic, has one of the most anti-Russian governments. Recall my story how McCain visited Bulgaria and the next day Sofia revoked its lucrative participation in South Stream. A Donbass journalist I know has visited Bulgaria recently for a conference. Many Bulgarians were apologizing profusely for the actions of their government, saying they feel like one people with Russians but that their government is completely under the US thumb and they can’t do anything about it.
Obama is listening to Merkel, to the extent he is capable. In fairness to Obama, I have to say he is caught between crazies such as McCain who find war to be the best solution for any situation – and there is a majority of those in the US congress – and reality.
Incidentally, behind the scenes Russian diplomatic efforts are proving very effective as well. They are delicately influencing and directing the situation.
Has the awakening begun?
I can tell you one thing for sure. Ukraine is awakening and the energy is slowly changing, as predicted. I monitor people’s opinions throughout Ukraine. Here are a couple of eye-witness accounts from Dnepropetrovsk. One man says that in his circles people would hide rather than join the ATO. When the army of Novorossia arrives to Dnepropetrovsk, he says, 70% of men would join it to liberate the rest of the country. There is only one disagreement among his friends, he says: some believe we should separate from Kiev and western Ukraine and build our own Novorossia. Others say, why should we cede them the rest of Ukraine – we need to liberate it all, pushing them (meaning ukro-nazis and Kiev junta) out. It’s our country after all.
Another man is the leader of the Ukraine Union of Soviet Officers. He says that they are all coming out for May 1 and May 9th, with their medals and uniforms, despite threats. But he also says that after Kolomoysky was removed as governor, Dnepropetrovsk started breathing easier, the right sector nazis disappeared from streets and people felt less threatened. Kolomoysky and Korban always portrayed themselves as saviors of Dnepropetrovsk, telling us it was quiet and orderly because of them. But they lied – after they left it got better. People are starting to awaken and question their reality, he says.
Many points I have mentioned above are discussed in-depth in my new EARTH SHIFT REPORT: OLIGARCH WARS. It is a treasure trove of intel, history, revelations and new predictions about oligarchs, Ukraine, Russia and US (those who asked me for predictions about the US would find them in the report).

LadaRayLive 11. Germans Are Coming to Crimea (in German w. English/Russian subs) – my authored English translation.
Some in Germany are awake…and singing. Two spunky German retirees didn’t believe Western MSM and decided to see for themselves what’s really going on in Crimea. ‘Around Crimea in 20 days’ cycling tour and a cool song that went viral, were born. The tour (May 9 – 29, 2015) is planned to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory in WWII over fascism, which will be celebrated on May 9 everywhere in Russia and many other countries. It will be celebrated with a great parade in Sevastopol, where our German friends will begin their tour. Want to join? You are invited – more in the video.

The damning video below shows a training session in Kiev, Ukraine, for the Ukraine army/national guard soldiers. This American, who explains that he used to work in the US, rehabilitating the worst drug addicts and axe murderers, says he ‘believes’ in people. “No feelings in war,” he repeats like a mantra. This is brainwashing at its best, as many of us have suspected all along. It has been suspected for the longest time that Americans are using all kinds of open brainwashing and MK ultra techniques on Ukrainians, and no doubt, on other Eastern Europeans. Finally, the evidence is coming out!
“Your senses have to be fully alert, but no feelings and emotions” (yes, god forbid you feel sorry or remorseful for the children you’ve killed in Donbass). This is a nazi killing machine preparation protocol in action!
The whole thing is in English, plus the translator is providing Russian translation. In the background, you can see the poster reading: “Believing in yourself, believing in Ukraine.” A very American poster, I must say, as no one talks like that in Ukraine!
The poster is also in Russian, not Ukrainian, which proves another thing a lot of Russian analysts have been pointing out: US is bent on creating ANTI-RUSSIA in Ukraine, using Russians and Russian-speakers living in Ukraine. The Gallup Poll of 2007 indirectly confirmed that over 80% of Ukrainians consider Russian their native language, not Ukrainian, despite many years of brainwashing. If they couldn’t do it through schools and media, they decided to create the anti-Russia, using Russians.
You will recall that during 2014 euro-maidan, one of the biggest slogans was ‘Moscali na nozhi (in Ukr),’ which means: “Russians on knifes.” One of the biggest demands of ukro-nazis was prohibition of the Russian language in Ukraine.
But after a world-wide storm of indignation and discrimination accusations, US/EU advisors made Kiev junta backtrack on such demands, explaining that this would look really, really bad for the international community and that it would be hard to explain to populations of their own countries why US/EU are supporting outright bandits.
Suddenly, it became ok to speak Russian everywhere, and some in Kiev would even parade their Russian, not the least because they didn’t speak Ukrainian adequately. This was meant to take the discrimination issue off the table, so they could concentrate freely on killing women and children in Donbass, labeling them ‘Russian aggressors and separatists.’ But Russian TV, papers, radio and movies are still banned from Ukraine, and TV channel execs get beaten to death or go to jail for airing Putin’s speech. All official documents and school books must be in Ukrainian.
However, as we see from this video, people still prefer to read and speak in Russian, hence the translation and poster.
I’ve done quite a bit of translation in my life and I can see what’s happening here. As you listen and watch this video, I want to draw your attention to the translator, whose body language is very telling. She starts translating normally. Then, when the American mentions an example of a military man chewing off his arm, she kind of twitches, looks at him, then overcomes her disgust and snaps out of it. Then, as the story becomes uglier, she uses his advice and becomes a machine. She closes off her emotions and starts translating snappier than before – like a machine. At one point she starts walking along the stage away from him, as if trying to run away.
He says these disgusting things on purpose. They all have to step over themselves, or rather step on their consciousness and squash it. Remember Jason Bourne and how he was trained?
When I showed this video to a friend, he made a remark I found very poignant: “When he was rehabilitating killers and addicts in the US, was he also recruiting them for the US army?”
Very possibly. They take people, whose self-esteem is super-low, who are screwed up by drugs and life, who have extremely low calibration…
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is how they train killing machines!
Video title: “Украинцев учат, что умереть за интересы США – это их предназначение” – “Ukrainians are taught that dying for the US interests is their purpose”
Added: To answer the question asked by readers: who is this guy? These are called ‘motivational speakers,’ and anyone who worked on Wall Street, in sales or at least at mid-management level in the US corporate world, has met them. They were hired by corporations to ‘motivate’ their employees. This one also did drug addicts and criminals, as she says. But now the money is in government/military/CIA contractor jobs. Therefore, this man is a US contractor, hired to ‘motivate’ Ukrainians…to kill.
It has been repeatedly reported that Kiev euro-maidan, national guard and nazi battalions live on drugs and hard booze. In Donbass, after ukro-army leaves, people always find syringes. It’s well-known that maidan participants were regularly brought what they called ‘tea’ – drugs brewed in a hot drink, to keep them high, in the destructive mode, and so they wouldn’t start thinking. Most of these are young people, who have lived their confused life in the in-between world, after the USSR collapsed.
These young people have confused identity and they can’t tell good from evil, right from wrong. They violently express their rage from growing up in a failed state that lies to them every day through media and school books. They grew up speaking Russian, and yet they were told to hate Russia. Their oligarchs rob them blind; their country is ruled by US embassy in Kiev and ministers are hired from US, Georgia and Baltics; they are told to shoot at people they used to be friends with – by foreigners.
It is a tragedy of the lost generation, and it is something the world should unite in order to rehabilitate. Instead, the dark forces in the US/Canada and EU prey on these unfortunate and confused souls, turning them into killing machines, with one goal only – to weaken and destroy Russia!
It is advisable to watch my 2 videos on Calibrations of Human Consciousness, first of which will talk about the life-threatening levels, such as the above-described, and the second, about how to rise above that. Watch both here!
What makes people behave in a certain way? How is it that some born into the same circumstances become protectors, and other perpetrators? In my short novelette, GREEN DESERT (Accidental Spy Prequel), I talk about Iraq circa 2007 and fates of several different people, who become strangely connected through the butterfly effect chain of events. How did American Sergeant William O’Shea, manage to rise above his conditioning, and others like him, didn’t? The difference in all cases is that illusive consciousness, of which I speak in my above videos.

FREE Earth Shift Report 2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY
(How the falsified history of Ukraine was developed and what lessons it teaches us)
Ukraine and Novorossia Elections
As a start, I will summarize some of the latest news and whispers from Ukraine.
The Rada elections in Kiev were largely predictable. Intercepted US State Dept emails from as early as 2006 called Poroshenko ‘our man in Kiev.’ Poroshenko, who has been now appointed president of Ukraine by his Washington handlers, expected a win in these Rada elections. However, his block finished a close second to Yatsenyuk’s – just over 20% each. The two rival parties cannot be distinguished even with a magnifying glass. Obviously, their Washington handlers want to keep both Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk’s egos in check by balancing them out against each other. The good old divide and conquer…
The relatively low showing of the openly nazi parties was due to two factors: the people are sick and tired of their violence and Ukraine has been told by their EU and US handlers to tone down that violence as much as possible because it makes their masters look bad. Still, the field commanders and nazi leaders, who can shoot and torture, but not think, will be in the Rada. Get ready for lots of loud bangs.
The surprise of the elections was the nearly 10% gained by what is considered pro-Russian Opposition Block, the remnant of the Party of the Regions and other forces squeezed and burned out of the country. The hastily organized Opposition Block is widely thought to be a project of the oligarch Levochkin. Therefore, this is still a fight between oligarchs for power. However, there are some semi-decent politicians in this block, who refuse to give up and intend to continue defending the rights of the Russian-speaking majority in Ukraine which are being brutally suppressed. These are nevertheless mostly business people with their own interests (or representing the interests of corresponding oligarch), so I wouldn’t be too hopeful about them. Ironically, the Opposition Block deputies are also the only ones who have any hope of keeping Ukraine together. Every time the population of Ukraine sees the rest of these ‘deputies’ fighting in the Rada, they will be reminded how pointless it is to try to reason with violent thugs, thus convincing the majority to secede.
Ukro-nazis already threatened the Opposition Block politicians not to show their faces in the Rada, or else. Considering these 10% are the only remaining politicians with some knowledge and experience of governing, without them Ukraine’s collapse would be expedited even further.
About 1/3 of the new Rada deputies are on oligarch Kolomoysky’s payroll. This one rules his vassals sitting in Dnepropetrovsk as his fiefdom, while attempting to create an alternative, oligarch-ruled version of Novorossia.
The official number for the country-wide election turnout is 52%, which observers feel is a falsification. Some observers and journalists were told to leave right before the voting ballots would be counted. When they returned, the see-through voting urns – almost empty before – would magically feel up with ballots.
Anna News reports: The simple people on the Ukraine territory are scared to talk for fear of SBU knocking on their door and dragging them off to jail, or for fear of being kidnapped and beaten by nazi thugs roaming cities and towns. Anna News interviews simple people from Ukraine about how they feel, how they live, etc. Many started refusing such interviews for fear of prosecution. From Kherson on the Black Sea the locals report that people were completely apathetic during elections and most decided not to vote, the turnout was extremely low.
Ukro-nazi justice: Several days ago people in many countries commemorated 6 months since the brutal burning of 42 people alive in Odessa. The city people feel extremely intimidated and scared after that event. Meanwhile, Kiev authorities celebrated the gruesome date by announcing a criminal case against Odessa police for letting go of the activists of the anti-maidan arrested after the ukro-nazis attacked them and burned to death their friends on Kulikovo Polie on May 2. Note, no attackers were arrested that day. No criminal investigation to determine and bring to justice the attackers was ever initiated. All these nazi thugs are still walking free, inflcting pain and thorough on others elsewhere in Ukraine. Meanwhile, those who were victims of the attack were arrested, but later let go after the large crowd of locals demanded their release. Now, Kiev is trying to prosecute those officers who let the victims go.
Officially Odessa had the lowest election turnout in Ukraine after Lugansk and Donetsk. Since we know Lugansk and Donetsk didn’t really vote, it’s safe to assume that Odessa’s real turnout was close to zero.
One brave granny from Odessa’s neighboring Nikolaev, who isn’t afraid of prosecution, said that at most 10% of the Nikolaev people voted in these Rada elections, out of these 75% voted for the Opposition Block. She says that the city has been infiltrated with violent western Ukraine nazis and bosses appointed by Kiev. However, there is a silent resistance that is waiting for the opportune moment to strike back. People are still disappearing. Unemployment is universal. There is no heat or hot water despite cold.
People from various areas of Ukraine report the same: waiting when the junta weakens sufficiently so they could take their power back. The longer this lasts (as I predicted) the more people get disgusted and ready to change the present regime.
There is more and more talk everywhere about changing the name of the new country to Novorossia. Novorossia means New Russia. The South and East don’t want anything to do with Ukraine any more – read more below to see where the name ‘Ukraine’ originated from. That will give you a good idea why people don’t want to keep it as a name for the country that will emerge out of the remnants of today’s incongruent conglomeration. The whispers about Novorossia include South, East, Kiev, all of central and northern Ukraine. The idea is to have a country without oligarchs that are presently strangling the failed Ukraine project. However, most agree that Western Ukraine, particularly Lvov and Galichina, where most ukro-nazis are from, is to be excluded from Novorossia.
Meanwhile in Donbass, the nucleus of the future Novorossia: The elections of November 2nd had a record turnout of over 70% on average. From the live streams and eye-witness footage of the DNR and LNR elections it’s clear that people were very passionate about voting. Despite cold and a threat of bombings, many stood in line for hours and hours to cast their vote. The see-through ballot urns were visibly full everywhere. The result again was predictable as the acting heads of both Donetsk and Lugansk governments received the majority of votes. Citizens interviewed while standing in lines to vote were saying how important these elections were for them and that they were voting to be with Russia. This info from Anna News.
The next steps are preparations for the winter and building the new administrative and government structures corresponding with the idea of the ‘people’s republics.’ Both DNR and LNR are now oligarch free. They are still working on redirecting inward their cash flow, taxes and income. These elections legitimize the heads of state, giving them a mandate to act more resolutely.
International observers present in Novorossia elections came from Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, France, Italy, Germany, Abkhazia, Russia and USA. They unanimously announced that elections were transparent, well-organized and democratic. Kiev immediately announced that each observer is now persona non grata in Ukraine. The Greek observers retorted they weren’t interested in visiting Ukraine for as long as it’s fascist. All those who participated/voted in the elections have been labeled terrorists by Kiev (that’s one and a half million terrorists).
The fifth Russian humanitarian convoy consisting of 100 trucks arrived to Donetsk and Lugansk. The West and Kiev immediately called it yet another Russian invasion and labeled diapers, flour, canned baby food and reconstruction materials the military cargo.
Rosenergo sent specialists to repair the badly damaged power lines. Both cities have restored 50% of their power with the help of the Russian specialists. Power also means heat. Since Donbass is sitting on all the coal in the world, at least they definitely won’t freeze in the winter, unlike Ukraine. DNR and LNR announced that they would be willing to sell their coal to Ukraine, should Kiev ask. However, Ukraine is proudly keeping silence preferring to freeze to death.
The Rabid Russophobia in Ukraine
When we talk about the situation in Ukraine today, it’s hard not to notice the exceptionally rabid Russophobia that permeates every pore of Ukraine’s existence. I grew up in Odessa, which still is a part of the artificial state of Ukraine. I went to school with kids from extremely diverse backgrounds. I studied Ukrainian since second grade. My mother was Ukrainian. I traveled all over Ukraine, all over the former USSR and all over the world. I am someone who has repeatedly accurately predicted major global events and developments… I have never seen anything like this, and could never imagine something like this happening in Ukraine.
When I say I’ve never seen anything like this I mean the turnaround that Ukraine has experienced since 1990, when I said goodbye to those parts forever. Sure, in certain parts of the world, for example in the Middle East, the West is ardently hated. But such hatred is based on centuries of Western aggression. It was no different in the 20th or 12th century (recall the Crusades). Yes, there is a pathological hatred of Russia in the West (excluding the sane parts of Western society). But the story hasn’t changed whether you look at the 20th, 19th, 18th, 17th, or earlier centuries.
What is artificially called Ukraine, and what was called historically Malorossia and Novorossia, before that Kievskaya Rus and Galitskaya Rus, is a completely different story. It is the same culture and people as Russia, who speak the same Russian language – granted, with some variations. There are cultures so much more different from the core Russian culture that nevertheless feel absolutely at home in Russia, considering the Russian culture their own.
Moreover, a Gallop poll conducted in 2008 on the post-Soviet space concluded that 5/6th of the residents of Ukraine consider Russian their main native language. Source: Anatoly Vasserman.
Therefore, it is absolutely impossible to explain what is happening in Ukraine from the cultural difference standpoint. The explanation is found elsewhere.
Clearly, should a complete freedom of expression and equal status with Ukrainian be given to Russian, very soon Ukraine would stop needing to be independent as the same culture and language will draw people from Russia and Ukraine together. This is exactly what those who want to divide and conquer, who want to assert their local power, cannot allow. To preserve the sovereignty of Ukraine’s power hungry elites and various imperial and global ambitions of NWO elites, it is necessary to discriminate against the rights of the majority of the population, it is necessary to prevent the population from speaking and thinking in their native language. Hence forced ukrainization and other ugly things I will talk about below.
I have been following Ukraine very closely ever since the maidan started in the end of 2013, and I have noticed a very interesting metamorphosis. If in the beginning of 2014 all Ukraine politicians, including Yanukovich and Poroshenko, absolutely always spoke Ukrainian in public to emphasize their ‘ukraine-ness,’ presently, Ukraine politicians, including rabid Russophobes, ukro-nazis and Poroshenko himself, speak Russian all the time during press conferences and Rada meetings. Of course, they also always spoke Russian in private because this is a much more natural language for them to speak. There are two reasons for that: 1. After threatening to nuke all the Russians, and after the massive exodus out of Ukraine, they are now trying to pacify the Russian-speaking majority in the country that it’s safe to stay. 2. This is also a bid for votes.
The rhetoric has changed like this: “we are not against Russian language or the Russian-speakers, we are against the big, threatening Russia that used to give us free gas and now is refusing to do so; we are against the mean Russia that used to subsidize our economy since Soviet times, and now is refusing to do so. Please, feel free to speak Russian anywhere you go, no one is going to beat you up or kill you for that any more (they did during and after maidan), but we’ll still ban ALL Russian papers, TV or journalists. They are all terrorists because they dare to tell the truth about what’s really happening in Ukraine.”
Certainly, some of this utter stupidity combined with pathological hatred had been brewing under the surface for a long time. In fact, there have always been two Ukraines: one was this nice and peaceful, sometimes exceedingly naive and sleepy place where I grew up; another – the vicious, the hateful, hiding in the shadows and secretly awaiting its chance to attack. This second place was continuously nourished and fed for centuries by certain forces from the West. The flame of hatred was kept artificially alive so at the right moment it could break through and scorch everything in sight.
The fire could have been much worse and the devastation could have been much bigger, if not for the absolute brilliance and level-headedness of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, and his team.
Post-Soviet Republics and 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, invested and industrialized heavily in ALL 14 Soviet republics, including in large part the Baltics – Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania – who now 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 Moldova, Pridnestrovie, seceded. Presently, other parts of Moldova are threatening to secede, especially Gagauzia and the north. Much more here: LRL2: Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
I am preparing a separate Earth Shift Report that will address the Baltics and particularly, Latvia, which just had parliamentary elections. Stay tuned for that.
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 an independent ‘state.’ 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, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan managed to preserve their Soviet-built enterprises and make them pay in the new era. Belarus also managed to build on them, creating the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle.’ Belarus succeeded because of the cosy relationship with Russia, therefore getting gas at heavily discounted price which makes its exports very competitive. The latter three – due to their own huge reserves of oil and gas, discovered and industrialized by Russia.
Another place that managed to preserve the Soviet inheritance is the break-away republic of Pridnestrovie (formerly part of Moldova) – but without any oil or gas.
The rest squandered their Soviet inheritance to various degree. 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 when the USSR started collapsing. 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
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 the thousands and shipped them to the 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 and throughout this year’s 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 circa Hitler. 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.
Of course we all know the lies associated with MH17 downing.
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.
The word ‘Moskal’ isn’t Ukrainian, but Polish. The role of Poland in this whole disaster in Ukraine is very prominent and is quite a separate story. At one point, when the tribunal will be looking into war crimes in Ukraine, I suspect much ugliness will surface about the extent of Poland’s involvement.
At the same time, the citizens of Donbass are being made look like insects. They call them “coloradi,” as in ‘Colorado beetle’ because the ‘Georgievskaya Lentochka’ – the historic Russian ribbon worn by many as a reminder of the Great Victory in WWII (you’ve probably seen such flags and ribbons) consists of black and orange stripes.
Georgievskaya Lentochka commemorating the courage and sacrifice in the Great War (WWII)
This is a deliberate belittling and dehumanizing of the Russian-speakers as part of the massive brainwashing campaign of the Ukrainian population. If they are insects, then it’s fine to kill and bomb them. It’s hard for most humans to kill other humans. But if they are insects, or separatists, or Russian invasion – no problem. I talked about how the divide and conquer strategy worked historically in Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? All this is happening in front of our very eyes in Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries. The one difference is that presently the power is shifting rapidly from the West to the East, so the old playbook doesn’t work any more.
In reality, Georgievskaya Lentochka draws on the coloring of the tiger and symbolizes courage, power and discernment.
This ancient symbol is also a combination of the sun – orange color, and earth – black color. In other words, it’s a unity of the heaven and earth wisdom, thus symbolizing the yin/yang balance.
I have recently listened to the popular radio show by a well-known Russian comedian and film-maker Mikhail Zadornov called “Neformat: The Divided States of America.” Zadornov always had an independent streak and sharp tongue, often criticizing powers that be, including Putin. Even he now supports Putin. That said, he was a close friend of Yeltsin in the early 1990s, and he was at the time, as many others in Russia, pro-Western democracy. He admits he changed his views ever since, which is a mark of a smart man – only fools don’t evolve. Here is a quote from Zadornov: “Don’t malign the Soviet Union, don’t cut off your roots. Those who spit at their past, don’t have a future. By the way, all those who lived during Soviet times now recall it as the best time of their life. Back then, there were many more good, kind people compared to today, when we live under capitalism.”
Incidentally, here is the video in which ukro-nazis are demolishing the largest in the world historic monument to Lenin and beating up people who try to object: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy, and related, The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 2: Letter From a Russian Liberal.
Only then we can defeat Russia when we make Russians in Ukraine hate Russians in Russia – whatever Western politician said that in the 19th century knew exactly what he was talking about. Think about it! If I heard this quote, so did those in the West whose life’s dream it is to do away with Russia. And as we see from what’s going on in Ukraine, they are acting on it. We live in the information matrix, where those who control the info-stream control the world. The image of Russia as an enemy was created in the past 23 years of ‘independence’ in many of the post-Soviet countries. Of course, in each case they had to draw on legitimate, or in most cases imaginary, historic reasons. Sometimes history was falsified, and sometimes it was turned upside down. The absolutely impossible to believe change that happened to Ukraine in the short 20 years is one of the best illustrations of how history is re-written and falsified just as soon as it happens. However, the roots of Russophobia, going hand in hand with a profoundly close connection of Russia and Ukraine, go much deeper in history.
What are the Roots of the Radical Russophobia in Ukraine?
“You said that Russians didn’t suppress the minorities, and that it was more the other way around. That seems logical, but it also raises the issue with the Ukraine today. Many say the radical Ukrainian sentiment was basically started in the USSR. Much milder than today, of course, but strong enough that it went wild once independence occurred. You might want to go over that in a post at some point. If you keep telling people that Russians are bad, including people in the historically Russian areas of the Ukraine, they will eventually agree.”
This is an excellent question raised by Paul Plane of the Plane Truth show in the comment to my post: Raising Chi Against Hatred: The Suppressed Story of Russian Songs that Unite World Cultures. The Plane Truth/Time Monk Radio are friends of the FuturisTrendcast (see Lada Ray interviews with the Plane Truth here). I addressed parts of this issue in various articles and interviews, but I do realize how difficult it is for those who grew up in the West to reconcile this with all the lies they had been fed since childhood. In this article I have put together a comprehensive analysis of this important issue. Note, I am just scratching the surface; there are deeper and very fascinating reasons, which concern everyone alive on the planet. I will eventually touch upon those in my future Earth Shift Reports and LadaRayLive shows.
First, let’s start with a few psychological premises and historic truths that may open your eyes
1. In any culture at all times there will be a certain amount of dissent against central power or against majority – sometimes justified, sometimes based on personal likes, dislikes, disappointments and power-mongering aspirations, whether justified or not. How far this dissent will go depends on factors such as: the strength of central power; support of the population; is there an economic crisis/collapse; and very importantly, are any foreign powers feeding said dissent with money, weapons and subversive propaganda. When above conditions don’t apply, the dissent is negligible or dormant.
2. Humans at large are prone to jealousy for someone more successful than they are. This usually comes from the personal sense of powerlessness, when people feel they aren’t in control of their own life. This applies to both individuals and countries.
3. Humans at large are prone to fear and panic, as well as hatred, born from fear and the above sense of powerlessness.
4. Ukraine had been subjected over the years to all of the above. Ukrainian dissent was dormant during the Soviet years, when Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was considered second most economically developed republic of the Union, after Russian Federation. This happened because Russia/USSR flooded Ukraine with technology, advanced specialists, industrialization, and simply with money.
5. Apart from the above, Ukrainians do have this interesting quality, particular to them. I did write about that in one of my past articles, where I pointed out the very well-known Ukrainian saying: “If I can’t eat them all, I’ll bite into each” (sounds like a vampire). In Ukrainian: “Yaksho ne z’im to ponadkusuyu,” meaning, if I can’t have something, no one else will.
See, Russians never had any such saying; quite the opposite – Russians are very generous, oftentimes to a fault. As we know, national sayings aren’t born by accident – they appear and take root based on the long-term observation of the manifest human nature. It seems, Ukrainians had the opportunity to observe the ‘if I can’t have it, no one will’ type of behavior among their brethren quite a bit.
The USSR collapse aftermath
In 1991, Soviet Union fell apart peacefully and quietly, practically on a handshake. Following that, Russians withdrew from everywhere on post-Soviet space to deal with their own collapse and internal problems, leaving at the mercy of the nationalistic, mega-corrupt, and oftentimes openly fascist governments over 25 million ethnic Russians who lived in various post-Soviet republics. In addition to that, another 100+ million people of various ethnic origins, who considered themselves belonging to the Greater Russian culture, were stranded in different corners of the post-Soviet space, now foreigners and illegals in Russia proper, which they considered their greater mother culture. Add to that another few hundred million Russians and pro-Russian all over the world suffering from a massive confusion and withdrawal. This, as Vladimir Putin once said (and I concur), is the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times. The Russian people now constitute the largest EVER divided ethnicity on planet Earth.
The turmoil and confusion in people’s heads was tremendous, and this included not only ethnic Russians – as I said, it also included about 100 million of others on post-Soviet space who, being Ukrainians, Belarus, Georgians, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Armenians, Abkhazians, Moldavians, Kyrgyzs, Gagauzs, Latvians, Poles, Bulgarians, Jews, also considered themselves Russian. Some people had to go through a lot of hardship, and some developed resentment, feeling they were left in the cold by the country they considered their mother culture. Some moved to Russia as guest workers with very little rights (but making a lot more money than in their native parts), and some chose to emigrate abroad, where salaries were much higher, but life much more boring and alien to them.
However, as Russia started recovering, and the West’s economic conditions began worsening, the cultural re-integration of the Greater Russian culture slowly but surely gained speed. It has been going on for years – through movies, songs, books and art competitions (as depicted in my above-mentioned article) as well as through humor of the traditional game show called KVN. KVN is older than I am; its fans are many and it manages to unite people not only from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the Baltics, but also from Georgia (just recently a sworn enemy of Russia), UK, Germany and Israel. There are now Africans, Chinese and Koreans playing KVN. I write about some of the above issues in Why US/EU/NWO Can Never Defeat Russia. Also watch: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU and read Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union”.
Russia started recovering from the 1990s knockout AFTER Putin came to power. When Putin first appeared on stage in 1999, he wasn’t taken seriously; in fact, he received threats and pretty humiliating remarks from other political forces. It was at the time when he was looking for support for the upcoming 2000 elections. To clear the way for Putin, Yeltsin stepped down ahead of time, and I recall that moment very clearly. Although I resided in the US, I listened to the nationally televised address by Yeltsin from the Kremlin on December 31, 1999. After traditionally congratulating everyone with the New Year 2000 and with the beginning of the new millennium, Yeltsin publicly apologized for all he had done wrong and asked for the Russian people’s forgiveness. Then he announced he was stepping down.
I wasn’t concerned with geopolitics back than; nor did I care about Yeltsin. But I did care about Russia and her people. I felt immediately that something very important was about to happen. Time has proven that my feeling was correct. The story of who and what was behind Yeltsin stepping down and Putin coming to power is extremely interesting in its own right. I will discuss that in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: The Putin Enigma.
When Ukraine became “independent” in 1991, everyone in the West, as well as many inside Ukraine itself, predicted that it would become the beacon of how the newly FREE countries liberated from the Soviet ‘occupation,’ should develop and grow. It was said that Ukraine would be the beacon of democracy and a stellar performer. It was a general Western and Ukrainian consensus that Ukraine would develop and grow much better than Russia. The demise and a full disintegration of Russia was also predicted in the West, and among those Russians who considered themselves smart, Western-oriented intellectuals. I believe some of those who predicted all this were Kissinger, Brzezinski and Albright. From that I make the inevitable conclusion: IT IS BECAUSE USA LISTENS TO ‘ANALYSTS’ LIKE THESE, US POLICIES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE A COMPLETE FAILURE AND DISASTER. I suggest everyone start listening to the predictions of those who know what they are talking about. Yours truly is a good start. 😉 My predictions can be found here.
Ukraine was juxtaposed to Russia as a great democratic success. Same was said in the 1990/2000s about Georgia, Latvia, Estonia – and look what is happening in these countries now: empty coffers, skyrocketing debt, 1/4-1/2 (and more) of the population are migrant workers in Russia or West as Soviet-built economy has been destroyed. Meanwhile, Russia turned around and continued adjusting, growing and developing.
Ukraine experimented with being “independent” for 23 years. The result is the severely damaged economy, hyper-inflation, currency collapse, civil war, oligarch takeover and takeover by foreign powers. If Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic’s GDP ranked #10 in the world in 1990, independent Ukraine’s GDP ranks #63 in the world as of 2013 (data by Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, former Rada deputy, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine). Note, this GDP was calculated in 2013, before the maidan and Kiev junta managed to destroy the rest of Ukraine’s economy.
If they truly cared for their country instead of their oversized egos and fat offshore bank accounts in payment for their services to NWO elites, they would have taken a good look at what THEY did wrong that caused this disaster. But of course it’s just so much easier to blame Russia.
In the past 23 years the MSM, politics and education were gradually taken over by the West together with the Ukrainian oligarchs with Swiss villas and wealth stored in Western offshores, whose interests coincided with the interests of the West.
Soros-funded history books have been fed to school children. According to this fiction Ukrainians descended from the unknown tribe of the ancient Ukrs – absolutely separate from Russians, and not from the Kievan and Galitskaya Rus. Russia in these books is portrayed as aggressor. In reality Russia saved Ukraine from the invasion and annihilation by Poles and Turks 360 years ago by accepting Ukraine’s plea to admit it into Russia. Ukraine history books portrayed Crimea and Novorossia as part of its territory, completely disregarding the truth – more about that later. In the Ukr history books Jesus Christ, Julius Caesar, as well as Adam and Eve, were all… genuine Ukrainians. It would be funny if it wasn’t that sad.
During the prosperous Soviet days the Ukrainian nationalism and envy were dormant. They woke up and proliferated with a vengeance when the economic collapse hit the country, therefore proving the old American adage that invariably ‘it’s the economy, stupid.’ It is interesting that Ukraine’s ruling class and the majority of the population, especially those nationalist or fascist-inclined, are in a complete and total denial as to what is happening in their country. Again – it’s so much more convenient to blame Russia!
The economy destruction gave birth to political unrest and the super-corrupt and sold-out elites. Such juicy pre-requisites coupled with pretty ignorant and savage population are a boon for the West in order to weaken Russia further. There is no question that Russians were asleep at the wheel geopolitically since 1985, when Gorbachev came to power. Later, Russia had to deal with her own demons… and own super-corrupt politicians and oligarchs. When Russians pretty much pulled out of Ukraine on all levels (this applies to the entire post-Soviet space), US/EU/NWO rolled in right away. And presto! This volatile confluence of events and conditions created the gross imbalance we are observing today.
It may seem from all I have said that Ukraine has never been a conscious ‘geopolitical subject,’ but rather an ‘object of geopolitics.’ It is actually true. Ukraine never had a successful run as an independent country.
Moreover, Ukraine was only successful when it was a part of Russia. This statement can be verified year after year with clear historic facts. Ukraine reached its pinnacle as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic during Soviet times. From a small, agricultural and poor area around Kiev and what is now central Ukraine, it grew into a huge territory, courtesy of various Soviet leaders, at the expense of others. Ukraine’s economy, if taken separately from the USSR totals, was ranked No. 10 in the world; and Russians even made sure Ukraine had its own representation in the UN and other international bodies. Of course, all this was promptly forgotten by the nezalezhna – once Ukraine turned independent.
It wasn’t my plan to bring up the issue of karma in this article, but how can I resist when it’s staring me in the eye: where you are going, there you are! In the words of my novelette, CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians), “Karma can be a beautiful maiden… or a bitch.”
THE REAL HISTORY OF UKRAINE
No, the anti-Russian sentiment wasn’t born during Soviet times. If anything, any real Ukrainian should be grateful to the Soviets. After all, it was Lenin in 1918-1922, who ‘gave’ all of east and south, including Donbass (Lugansk and Donetsk), Zaporozhie, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Odessa, Kherson and Nikolaev to Ukraine. This was done to appease the existing ultra-nationalist sentiment there, plus to give the poor, agricultural Ukraine (What I call ‘Ukraine proper’ – the areas concentrated around Kiev, central and northern Ukraine) an industrial base and educated work force, which could bring them sustainable revenue. The goal was to significantly pull up their standard of living. Under Stalin, this idea was expanded as Russians built an extremely strong industrial base in Ukraine, off which Ukraine has been living till today. The fact that they, and their oligarchs, never modernized or added to that base, but like a bad drunk preferred to squander their rich Soviet inheritance, speaks volumes of their ability to self-govern. That notwithstanding, they blame Russia.
As many of my readers know, I grew up in Odessa, a beautiful and wealthy Black Sea port and resort, built by the Russians in 1793. Just like Crimea and other productive and wealthy areas of the South and East, Odessa became a part of Ukraine due to the short-sighted actions of the Soviet leaders; in this case, Lenin.
This is the historic truth. However, the ignorant and sold-out media, politicians and writers in the West and Ukraine will routinely lie and blame Russia for “invading Odessa.” The truth is, Odessa always was and always will be a Russian city.
I once came across an American/Israeli novelist Daniel Silva who is routinely producing bestseller spy thrillers based, unfortunately, on outright lies. I once picked up a book written by this ‘novelist’ in which action took place in Russia, Crimea and Odessa. The descriptions were so bad and so far from the truth that it was clear the man had no idea whatsoever how either Odessa or Crimea should look, the names were absolutely wrong, and of course – both Crimea and Odessa were occupied by the bad Russians, until in 1991 the poor Ukrainians (with completely idiotically sounding non-Ukrainian names) reclaimed their CORE (??) territories of Crimea and Odessa. I haven’t seen a bigger BS in my life.
This is how Western propaganda works – it’s not just MSM or politicians. They pay big bucks to sold-out puppets like the above-mentioned novelist Silva to produce a lie in a pretty wrapper. This alone gives us a good idea how one’s book becomes a bestseller in the US – write a lie big enough, preferably about Russia, China or the Middle East, and you are guaranteed a best-seller status. Needless to say, I dropped that book like a hot potato. Guess what, I see Daniel Silva books all the time on bestseller lists. Looks like their propaganda keeps working.
Every library and store would carry shelves upon shelves of lies written by professional crooks. So many will read them and think this is the truth. In the information vacuum what choice do they have? And that’s how you create zombified, manipulated, brainwashed populace that you twist into a pretzel on moment’s notice.
I write the TRUTH in my books and this is why they don’t carry them in libraries and stores. Do check out my paperbacks and ebooks, and support my writing by buying them! Incidentally, all my ebooks are on Pre-Holiday Book Sale! See more in BOOKS.
Just like in Crimea, 100% of Odessans always spoke Russian and/or a special Odessan mixed language. Recently, I was watching clips with pro-Ukrainian, pro-ukronazi demonstration in Odessa; they showed young people and families with children who spoke and carried slogans in Ukrainian. I can assure you, no real Odessan in his/her right mind ever speaks Ukrainian – these were the Kiev junta plants. To me, this little clip proved the level of lies, and the crude, unprofessional deception of the Kiev junta. They couldn’t get the real citizens for this protest, so they brought in the traveling circus, and with children – a nice touch!

It was also Stalin who ‘added’ to Ukraine – note, to Ukraine, NOT Russia! – some regions of Western Ukraine that belonged previously to Romania, Hungary and Poland. Russia did have a strong historic claim on these areas (in medieval times this area was called Galitskaya Rus and the population was ethnically Russian, Russin or Malorussian), but they were taken over or annexed by other countries in the last few centuries, until Stalin annexed them in 1940 to extend the USSR border, thus creating a buffer zone in case of Hitler’s attack. Presently, these are territories that may be disputed by the above-mentioned countries.
And of course, Ukrainians should have been grateful to Russians forever due to Khrushchev giving them Crimea in 1954. Instead, they treated the Crimea and its people like…. I will omit the word that comes to mind. Together with all other undeserved Soviet inheritance, they squandered the prized possession such as Crimea. Incidentally, you can listen to the Lada Ray Live show on YouTube for more on Crimea and the theft of the Crimean Scythian gold. Listen to this episode.
Earlier history of Ukraine
16-19th century. When large parts of what was called at different times the Kievan (Kievskaya) Rus, Galitskaya Rus, Malorossia, and subsequently, Ukraine, were taken over at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, some of the local population was gradually re-molded into the Western-centric mentality and brainwashed.
In the 19th century Austria-Hungary built concentration camps for some of western Ukrainians, who always called themselves Russins and who – oh, surprise – considered themselves Russians. These camps were built for those who didn’t submit to the ‘we are separate from Russia’ ideology. There was a well covered-up genocide of the Russins in western Ukraine when the whole villages were either burned down or forcibly converted into Catholicism.
Divide and conquer: It is generally understood by researchers that project ‘Ukraine is a separate nation’ was born in Austria-Hungary in the 18th century. Later, it was adopted and expanded by Poland. The goal was to tear Ukrainians away from Russia. From the standpoint of an occupier it’s not good when a part of your country (parts of Ukraine, in fact parts of Russian historic and cultural territory, were occupied by Poland and Austria-Hungary, and before that, by Lithuania) considers you an illegal occupier and keeps looking at Russia as their motherland. Look at the striking parallels with today’s Donbass! They don’t consider Ukraine their motherland; instead they keep raising Russian flags, declaring allegiance to Russia.
Project Ukraine: 360 years ago cossack Bogdan Khmelnitsky and his people voted to re-unite with Russia. Other choices that didn’t get much popular support were joining the Osmanic Turkey or Poland. Russia accepted the territory with the capital in Kiev, which at that point was called Malorossia. Novorossia (currently the East and South of Ukraine) was NOT a part of Malorossia.
In medieval times, the neighboring Poland and Lithuania had big emperial designs. There were times when both Poland and Lithuania grew through conquest of neighboring Slavic lands. The back and forth struggles between states continued for centuries, until during the Time of Troubles Poland, which by then absorbed Lithuania, tried to conquer Russia, installing a Polish king on the Russian throne. As my readers may know from reading my Predictions and articles, any attempt to conquer Russia always ends very badly for the conqueror wannabe.
The popular uprising of the Russian people against occupiers produced true heroes and leaders. One of the heroes was local peasant Ivan Susanin, who volunteered to show the Polish army a secret path into Moscow to ensure their surprise attack, but instead led them into swamps, where he sacrified his life dying together with the Poles, thus saving Moscow from imminent invasion. The leaders of the 1612 uprising were citizen-commoner Kuzma Minin and Prince (Knyaz’) Pozharsky, who organized a grass-roots army financed by rich merchants and simple citizens alike. It was a truly popular movement when people donated their last money and when everyone rose regardless of their age and status in society.
The defeat of the occupiers was only the beginning. The result of every aggression against Russia is always the same. The result of this aggression was that eventually both Lithuania and Poland became parts of the Russian Empire. As I said, it’s never a good idea to attack Russia.

From this it is clear that some in Poland, and Lithuania too, had kept a certain amount of resentment due to their historic defeat. Interestingly enough, while Ukraine was now a part of Russia, Polish lords (pani) still were the largest land owners and serf-owners in Ukraine. Russians didn’t expropriate their private property. Serfs were Ukrainian peasants, sort of half-slaves who were owned and could be sold or bought by their lords. The Polish pani were very vicious and cruel as documented in many Ukrainian works of literature. The greatest Ukrainian poet, Taras Shevchenko (see more about him below) dedicated his whole life to exposing and telling the truth about the exploitation of Ukrainians by the Polish pani. There were lots of peasant uprisings with manors and palaces being burned.
In fact, Ukraine was so named in Poland, not in Russia. In Russia the territory around Lvov, Kiev and Poltava was called Malorossia (or Russia Minor). ‘Ukraina’ ‘vkraina’ or ‘okraina’ means the outskirts in many Slavic languages. To Poles Ukraine was the outskirts of their once bigger empire. The name was used parallel with the official name of Malorossia in everyday language for quite some time, but it gained popularity since mid-19th century thanks to the Polish intellectuals from Lvov.
The name of the man who was the driving force behind ‘Ukraine is separate from Russia’ project was Kalinka. He was a Polish ksendz (Catholic priest). In 1864 he created a plan to separate Ukraine from Russia following a historic event in 1861 when Russian Emperor Alexander freed serfs. The now free farmers were granted some of the lands that Polish pani-shliakhta considered their own. There was a rather significant Polish shliakhta insurrection in 1963. However, that insurrection was quelled not by the Russian army or police, but by the self-armed army consisting of former serfs themselves who were promised lands of those Polish lords who participated in the insurrection. Clearly, the Polish shliakhta never forgot their humiliation and defeat. The idea was if they can’t have Ukraine, then it won’t belong to Russia either.
Incidentally, current Ukrainian anthem adopted in the 1990s was also written in the beginning of the 20th century as a semi-joke by several Polish intellectuals from Lvov, plotting their revenge on Russia. The anthem is infamous for its depressive and incongruent lyrics, such as, “So far Ukraine is alive…” Meaning, they are expecting it to die soon? Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy… The verses that became the present day Ukraine anthem were copied quite talentlessly, but with a purpose – to diminish and destroy – from the Polish anthem. In the Polish anthem there are words, “Poland is still alive (but unlike in the Ukraine anthem, the next line clarifies), while we are…” The clarifying line gives the whole thing an entirely different meaning.
Considering that Polish pani owned Ukraine lands and people, this is the first time in history the occupied are proudly singing the anthem written by their occupiers.
Opening the Pandora’s Box: since Ukraine wants to join the EU, Poles are preparing historic claims on Ukrainian lands they used to own. 70,000 such claims exist in Poland alone. There are also several thousand in Romania, Hungary and Israel. Ownership claims from the descendants of the dreaded Polish pani include agricultural lands, manors, villages, buildings, whole cities and factories.
A Note from Lada:
I will leave outside the scope of this article the discussion as to how close Ukrainians are to Russians, or how close Poles and Lithuanians are to Russians for that matter. Very close, I can assure you. However, here we are not talking of ancestral closeness, but of ideology. In medieval times this ideology was based on difference in religion, with Vatican/Catholicism being the aggressor. Later, in the 18th/19th century, it was based on ethnicity, falsification of historical roots and allegiance to the crown. In the 20th century, it became the communism vs. capitalism fight. And in the 21st century, they again dragged out the moth-eaten 18th-19th century’s falsified history and allegiance.
But wait! do you notice THE COMMON DENOMINATOR in all these cases? The ENEMY NUMBER 1 is ALWAYS RUSSIA! It doesn’t matter what ideology they peruse. What matters is how easy it is to brainwash and zombify humans.
As a comparative linguist and mystical futurist (see my articles about the Mysteries of Linguistics), I can tell you that the peoples of Europe, and by extension, of Eurasia, ARE the same people, or at least, very close relatives with the same roots. I can also tell you that in a cosmic sense, we are all ONE.
It is a shame that people who are so close can’t live in peace!
I’ll also add the following: it is clear to me that most of the world’s population does want to live in peace and cooperation, which includes the majority in the countries/continents I sometimes criticize, such as Ukraine, Poland, US, UK, and Europe. However, certain forces on our planet are after unlimited power at the expense of others. This ruthless drive for power and money is what creates wars and instability. These forces change their shape and flags in time and space, but their essence always remains the same. As long as people allow themselves to be led by their lowly emotions, such as fear, greed and anger, they will always be a willing cannon fodder and useful fools in the hands of these master manipulators.

Other examples: The same situation occurred in 2008 in South Ossetia/Abkhazia – Georgia war. Serbians will never forget how the former Yugoslavia was broken up and how Serbia was bombed in the 1990s. Today, the Crimea and Donbass-like scenario is taking place in parts of Moldova, specifically, Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia – both had referendums in which about 97% of citizens voted for re-uniting with Russia. I am following the Moldova/Pridnestrovie/Gagauzia story very closely, as it may explode any moment. See my article Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union” and special video report: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
Back to Ukraine. Of course we shouldn’t forget about the forced religious conversion of Ukrainians from Orthodoxy into Catholicism, which started around 17-18th century and continues till today. In those days religious conversion was the best way to divide cultures. Same happened in Serbia/Yugoslavia, where Muslim and Catholic religions were used to divide and pit against each the traditionally Orthodox Christian Southern Slavs.
The story of Ukrainian pro- and anti-Russian mentality is very well depicted in the famous historic story by Nikolay Gogol, Taras Bulba. It is the story of a Cossack and his two sons. The world-famous Russian author Nikolay Gogol was from Ukraine, and to him it would have never occurred to say that he wasn’t Russian. Same goes for the celebrated 19th century Ukrainian poet and thinker, Taras Shevchenko, whose whole life was spent in a fight against the Polish shliakhta, or Polish pani – rich Polish landowners who owned a lot of Ukraine’s lands. Shevchenko spoke up in protection of the simple Ukrainians who were exploited by the Polish shliakhta. Taras Shevchenko is called the ‘Great Kobzar’ in Ukraine and is celebrated as the biggest Ukrainian poet. Meanwhile, most of Shevchenko’s works are written in Russian, and only a small portion – in Ukrainian. Gogol wrote almost exclusively in Russian.
Taras Shevchenko saw the best and only protection for Ukraine in being a part of Russia, the same way as the leader of Ukraine Bogdan Khmelnitsky 360 years ago saw Ukraine’s future as one with Russia. Bogdan Khmelnitsky asked Russia to accept Ukraine as part of its territory and Russia said ‘yes,’ thus protecting Ukraine from a hostile takeover. By the way, 360 years ago, a truly democratic referendum was conducted in cities and villages to decide whether Ukraine should in fact join Russia. Khmelnitsky’s cossacks went from town to town and asked whether citizens wanted to be under Russia, Poland or Osmanic Empire. And everywhere citizens unanimously responded, “with Russia” (source: Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, leader of the progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine: Link). Since then, Ukraine has devolved substantially in terms of democracy.
The 18th century Ukrainian poet/philosopher Skovoroda wrote in his bio: “Russian philosopher.” Same goes for the 19th century Ukrainian poetess, Lesia Ukrainka (Lesia the Ukrainian). These people are not just anyone – their portraits are on the contemporary Ukraine currency.

Notice that they celebrated their heritage, just like a resident of Moscow, Rostov, Ryazan, or the Urals, would celebrate their own local heritage, but at the same time, they felt a part of the Greater Russian culture. Today’s Ukrainians have become masters at denying the obvious.
When I grew up in Odessa, our biggest park was, still is, called the Shevchenko Park. In school, we all learned the poetry of Taras Shevchenko in Ukrainian, although 100% of the multi-national population of Odessa ALWAYS spoke Russian (the language today’s Ukraine has tried to officially ban) and Odessa wasn’t even supposed to be a part of Ukraine. Just a reminder of how all-inclusive the Russian culture was and is, and how today’s Ukro-fascism is the complete opposite of that.
See my popular articles about Odessa with great images:
Interesting example: After WWII, Germany was divided into two countries. East Germany is mostly Prussia, another part of Germany is called Saxonia, yet another Bavaria. All these areas historically have their own dialects. There are about 50,000 Serbs in Germany that have lived there for millenia, except in today’s Germany they are called ‘Sorbs.’ Does it occur to anyone to say one part is German and another isn’t? Did it ever occur to anyone to deny east and west of Germany didn’t deserve to be together? No – they reunited as one nation. In parts of Germany they speak language the other parts have trouble understanding; yet, they all consider themselves German despite big differences in psychology and language.
Historic truth: From the above, we can already see that in 19th century and prior, those who are called today Ukrainians thought of themselves as Russian. Ukraine had a distinct, and very lovely dialect. Ukrainian was a dialect, along with Belorussian, until Lenin and the Bolsheviks decided to upgrade it to a language. Bolsheviks have done this to many other dialects on the Soviet space as well. Russian linguists oftentimes worked overtime to create alphabets for those small dialects that had no written language, thus upgrading them and giving them second life. This was the way Bolsheviks wanted to celebrate the diversity of Russia, elevating the dignity of small cultures. As a linguist I know a thing or two about that.
But the story goes deeper. During Peter the Great there was a war with Sweden. Appointed by Peter Ukraine’s governor (it was the Ukraine that didn’t include today’s East, South, West and Crimea), Ukrainian Cossack Getman Mazepa, betrayed Russia and sided with Sweden. Let’s also remember that Ukraine was still called Malorossia in those days. Here is a vivid illustration of how far today’s official Ukraine has gone: Ukrainian school history books describe Getman Mazepa as a hero. They also portray as a hero Stepan Bandera, Shukhevich and other ukro-nazis who headed SS Division Galichina and similar outfits during WWII, and who were responsible for massacring hundreds of thousands of Russians, Jews, Ukrainians and Poles.
The attempted Swedish invasion of Russia failed. Swedish king Karl lost to Peter in the Battle of Poltava. Poltava is a city located in today’s central Ukraine. It has to be noted that attempts to invade and conquer Russia by the West are as old as the world itself. I explained the West’s maniacal desire to conquer Russia in PREDICTONS and in Predictions: The Real Reasons for West’s Anti-Russian Sanctions. I will be expanding on my predictions eventually, so stay tuned.
Russians are well-aware of all these historic episodes, but they have been customarily closing their eyes to the facts, pretending it never happened in order to keep the “bad peace in the family,” following the Russian principle that ‘bad peace is better than a good war.’ They would usually do so until it were impossible to keep such peace and the rosy glasses that went with it.
Is Kiev really the Mother of all Russian Cities?
We have to dig even deeper from here. There is a vernacular floating around that ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities.’ This phrase was born of Lenin’s/Bolsheviks’ desire to appease Ukraine ultra-nationalists circa 1918-20 and to create the ‘brotherhood of nations.’ Admirable, but incredibly misguided. Russians customarily repeat this phrase, without thinking what it means.
In reality, during the medieval times Kiev was a large, important and rich city, but hardly the ‘mother of all Russian cities.’ The history of the Russian civilization was deliberately re-written and shortened to make it seem as if Russia was only a 1000 years old. The ancient Rus (Slavic) chronicles were burned and any evidence of the many, many millenia of the Rus (alternatively called Slavyano-Arian) culture all over the world, including in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the British Isles, Mediterranean, the Urals, Siberia, beyond the Arctic Circle, Egypt, and on North American continent, erased. However, all this information is now coming out as the new advanced scientific methods allow to read things that were unreadable before, and calculate mathematically past events that were falsified. The falsifications were so widespread that literally we can all throw out the entire history we ever studied, and learn it from scratch. This concerns Russia, Eurasia, Asia, Europe, America and the Middle East.
Extremely advanced Rus cities existed well before Kiev everywhere, including those places considered today too cold for human habitation, such as the Kolsky peninsula in the White Sea beyond the Arctic Circle, the northern Ural Mountains, Arctic Siberia near the North Pole, to name a few. It is proven that advanced civilizations existed as far as 40 thousand years ago, and it is believed that they also thrived much, much longer prior. On the other hand, very important Rus/Slavic cities also existed in Western Europe, including in what is today Mediterranean, Italy and Germany. This includes the famous historic cities, such as Venice, Verona, Vienna, Rome, Troy, Berlin, Bern, Pompei, to name just a few. Venice was built by ancient Slavs called Veneds, and so was Vienna. The close relatives of Veneds, Et-ruskans (in Russian: Et-russki) had built Rome. Look at the word “Ro-me.” Now look at the word “Rossiya.” You can say “Rus” and you can say “Ro-ssiya. “Ro-me” — “Ro-ssiya.”
The brainwashing was so great that even the majority of Russians, including most Russian scientists, Lenin and the Bolsheviks, went along with the “Rus is 1000 years of age” theory. That’s why they promoted Kiev as the most important, title city of the medieval Rus, from which the entire history of Russia supposedly began. (I write about some of this in the Forbidden Linguistics. Linguistics can help us uncover the hidden mysteries and clarify historic distortions.)
If we take the medieval era alone, and only within the contemporary Russian territory, in 5-10th centuries (and well before that) there were cities of the Golden Ring (Suzdal, Vladimir, etc.) located around Moscow, as well as Veliky Novgorod (Great Novgorod), that were at least just as important as Kiev – possibly more. The age of Moscow is likely at least several thousand years, not 900 years, as the mainstream history will have you believe.
The actual name of Moscow is Moskva in Russian. The name was distorted, perhaps accidentally. It was called Maskova well before the year 1147, which is erroneously considered the first mention of Moscow in chronicles, and therefore its birthday. Of course it is the first mention since all earlier mentions were destroyed! So, the name Maskova (source: Russian linguist, Prof. Valery Chudinov, Russian Academy of Sciences Member) comes from ‘maska.’ Maska is the Russian word, from which the Western word mask had originated.
The word masquerade comes from Russian maskarad: maska + rad. Rad = ‘rad-ovatsia’ – to experience joy, to have fun, as well as to commune/talk with others. Incidentally, the Ukraine parliament is called ‘Rada,’ or a place where people are supposed to commune and discuss things, preferably with joy ;). Instead they often have fist fights there, completely negating the true meaning of this ancient word. The word ‘rad’ is very, very ancient and it has a very profound meaning. I will talk more about it in a future report related to the discoveries of the Russian scientists.
In the ancient days, maska had a broader meaning and symbolized anything artistically painted. Before that, it symbolized Vedic (ancient Rus pagan) religious paintings. When Russia adopted Orthodox Christianity, it became the first name for icons. However, the word undoubtedly has pre-Christian meaning and very ancient origin.
Incidentally, the word ikona, ‘icon’ in English, is also a very ancient Russian word. What we know as a Russian icon today was called “maska” in those ancient days, and Maskova (Moskva) was the place where these icons were painted. The real age, origins the true global importance of the Rus language and culture (also referred to as Slavic), would be a separate topic. The words such as “ikona,” “Rus” or “Ros,” and “Slav” are hugely important for all of us.
I’ll give you a hint: it is precisely because the earthly importance and global weight of the Rus culture and language is much greater than customarily portrayed, there had always been forces bent on diminishing and maligning Russia and Russian culture. There is so much more to say on the subject, and I promise we’ll talk about it in my future reports.
Holy Trinity, the most famous surviving medieval Russian ikona (maska), by Andrei Rublev
The reason I talk so much about the “Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities” myth is because it is very important to understand the essence of today’s hatred of certain members of the Ukrainian society towards everything Russian. It is this false idea that is at the core of their staunch belief that Russians are inferior, therefore, they – the real heirs of the ancient Kievan Rus, the real ‘Title Slavic culture’ – should be the richest, most prosperous and get all the influence and credit in world affairs. This kind of sick mentality can also be easily recognized from the hysterical speeches by Hitler and Goebbels; it is born of a severe inferiority complex. This kind of horribly low vibration is what those forces who want to control and destroy Ukraine, and then through Ukraine get to Russia, gladly latch on to.
But this myth would have never endured if Russians themselves didn’t parrot it, partly because of own ignorance and partly because of the Russian psyche’s unique quality of generosity – why not spread the wealth and make Ukrainians feel better about themselves. As we see, best intentions do lead to hell.
So why did the myth that Kiev is ‘the Mother of all Russian cities’ appear, and how did it gain traction? My theory is that the Russian Orthodox church played a role here, as Kiev is the seat of the very important orthodox Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra monastery built about 700-800 years ago. Perhaps the myth of the Kiev as the mother of all Russian cities was necessary to raise the importance of the church. It’s interesting to note that in later years Moscow was referred to as the ‘Mother City,’ in my opinion because this is where the Orthodox headquarters moved around 14-15th century. So, it’s very possible that the title of the ‘Mother City’ was simply given to any city that played a role of the Orthodox Christianity’s headquarters of the Russian realm at any given moment, but later the real meaning was forgotten or deliberately distorted. This is the most logical explanation, however, sadly humans tend to lose the historic chain of events and reasoning. Of course, a large role here played the fact that so many Russian chronicles that could have confirmed this, were destroyed.
The ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russia’ theory doesn’t hold water however you look at it, and it is obviously politically motivated.
Either way, this is a myth that unfortunately became so pervasive that it infected the psyche of Ukrainians with jealousy and resentment towards Moscow and Russia. How come, say Ukrainians, WE are the most important, WE were the true beginning of the Russian civilization, and meanwhile Moscow gets credit for everything? OUR Ukrainian language was the mother tongue (not true), while Russian had been the derivative; so how dare Russian claims the status of one of the great languages, and Ukrainian doesn’t!
In reality, the modern Ukrainian language is in large part an artificially created language with the kind help of the above-mentioned Polish intellectuals. It is also a mixed language, with lots of words borrowed from Polish, Hungarian, Latin, and other languages, after years as part of different countries and as a deliberate attempt to distance Ukrainian from Russian.
Related complaint from Ukraine: how come Moscow/Russia are doing so well, and we are not?
Add to that twisted historic resentment this, more recent envy: how come Russia has all the resources, such as oil, gas and huge territory, and we only have coal? The fact that Russia always shared all her resources more than generously, the fact that Ukraine always paid a highly discounted price for gas and oil, that Russia subsidised and supported Ukrainian economy… matters not.
This, in short, is the sad story of the anti-Russian hatred in Ukraine and its falsified history.
Of course, there are normal people in Ukraine as well, but they are being intimidated, suppressed and silenced. For example, Ukraine has just had the premature elections into Rada. Due to intimidation, threats and open persecution by the government and ukro-fascist mobs, the only candidates able to run are all shades of fascists and the ultra-right. The centrist Party of the Regions candidates could only run if they changed colors, and even then, they probably would be thrown out because of the new ‘Lustration law,’ which is somewhere between the McCarthyism/the 1950s US Witch Hunts and Hitler’s Final Solution.
Meanwhile, all left parties have been banished from the Rada. Communist party members were beaten in the Rada and their parliament faction was disbanded for trying to draw attention to the plight of the peaceful population in Donbass. The members of the Communist Rada faction are in hiding because many of their houses were burned down and families physically threatened. The Progressive Socialist Party also is practically in hiding – I mentioned the head of this party, Natalia Vitrenko, above. She says that she has been completely shut off from any media and the only means she has left of delivering her message is YouTube. All this because she tells the truth. Video in which angry mob in Kiev dumps a Rada deputy in a dumpster and threatens to set him on fire. Another video in which angry ukro-nazis are demolishing a monument to Lenin, whom they should in fact admire as the Father of their nation (this video is by a German citizen who speaks Russian).
However, what is happening in Ukraine today, just like any violent aggression and suppression, can’t last forever. We are living through a revolutionary period when truth is bound to come out everywhere. Every suppressed truth will be breaking through the layers of lies and illusion throughout this decade. Truth will be blooming and illuminating the world with a vengeance after the many years of obscurity. Don’t be afraid of this light – embrace it!
