How PUTIN views gay people and gay issue? ~COMPLETE MULTIDIMENSIONAL TRUTH!

This is one of the questions submitted for the INVERTED COLLAPSE – 3-WEBINAR SERIES!

And it is simultaneously a new Ask Lada episode!

Lada,

I wanted to ask you a question.  I was wanting to ask you about your thoughts on Putin’s views on gay people.
Thanks, J

LADA’S ANSWER

Dear J,

Frankly, I never intended to talk about this, as this is NOT one of my CORE subjects. However, I get such questions more often than I’d like. Therefore, even though you wanted it answered privately, after a consideration, I have decided to set the record straight once and for all publicly, and I trust this answer will put this issue to REST FOREVER. I do not intend to get back to it in the future! 

Me personally — I feel strongly that the gay issue should be a complete non-issue, an entirely private matter. We, as humans, should always respect each other regardless of faith and orientation, for as long as the healthy boundaries, law and a greater good of society are observed by all sides. This is how I would treat it, and this is how any wise and healthy society should.

However, years ago, the cabal discovered that the gay people could be used very productively in the globalist plan for a full spectrum dominance of our planet.

From this perspective, I feel equally sorry for the REAL gays. Unfortunately, there are too many of those who are simply fakes and exhibitionists, or those who decided to jump on the bandwagon of the latest fashion. And of course, there is a lot of money nowadays in being gay.

The REAL gays, some of whom may be nursing intensely private real life traumas, have become hostages of the situation; these poor people are used as convenient dupes and globalist props; they have been dragged into this and put on display for all to see, whether they want it or not. 

The gay issue is an artificial brainwashing construct for the sheeple, designed to keep tension in Western society, especially in USA and British Isles. It is also a handy tool for the destabilization of any traditional, conservative society around the globe. This is an incredibly brilliant and subversive ploy to divide and conquer by increasing tension in any society.

As we discussed in EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 2: INVERTED COLLAPSE, this is part of a war-like, confrontational, immature, ill-adjusted and greedy lower 3rd DIMENSION, in which the lop-sidedly yang West has been brewing for millennia, and which they try to impose on the rest of the world. 

As such, this issue should be ignored by wise people, and that’s what I normally do. I simply don’t understand why I get all these questions — what is it that’s making people ask them?

You have to understand that the gay issue is merely used as a proxy to subdue and enslave others, both domestically and globally. So when you give it energy and ask me these kinds of questions, you validate what the cabal is doing and lend it some of your energy.

However, out of consideration for the fact that you are one of our valued subscribers to the COMPLETE 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES (thank you!), I want to answer it for you as an exception — as honestly and fully as possible.

As a wise person, Putin’s view on gay people is neutral, as far as the social life goes. Many Russians feel more or less the same, as long as there are no public displays — ‘don’t ask don’t tell.’

However, the Russian Orthodox believers, patriots/nationalists and the Russian government rightly feel that the gay agenda is being used as an aggressive proxy and one of the biggest info war tools by the West, a tool to vilify and provoke Russia, and to destroy Russian unity and faith. Due to the pro-western grant-eaters, who constantly yell and scream about it, the problem gets resurrected all the time artificially. 

It’s still vivid in many Russians’ memory how their society was almost destroyed and terribly corrupted by the West in the ’90s. They won’t let that happen again. From this perspective Russia has to act tough and defend herself by adopting certain child protection/anti-gay-propaganda laws. 

Putin tries to balance various views to keep it level and stay away from conflict in the society. He has achieved it and the ‘howling’ in the West subsided, having failed in much of its goals, but not before the gay discrimination vilification label was firmly attached to Russia in the psyche of the Western sheeple. 

THAT SAID, on a personal level, Putin is a conservative, and a devout Russian Orthodox Church believer. As such, the church dictates a certain view of the subject, so he won’t condone it. But as I said, as a wise leader and person, Putin’s view of gay people is neutral, as is that of many Russians — as long as their children aren’t bothered by aggressive western attacks, masterminded in order to destabilize Russian society. 

Therefore, what we see here is a shameful exploitation by the West of an extremely delicate issue, and, typically of the yang/aggressive West, they don’t care how many people they offend and how many lives they break as a result.

But people aren’t blind, and neither are they stupid. An interesting paradox occurred once the West began in 2013 its vicious howling regarding the ‘gay issue’ in Russia, and Russia, as a result had to defend herself. The conservative people in Russia and the West, as well as many conservative societies around the world, became even more convinced that the West cannot be trusted, and only Russia and Putin can. Instead of a vilification they hoped for, all the West achieved was yet another spike in the Russian and international popularity of Putin.

Recall what I’ve been predicting since 2014, when I first began FuturisTrendcast! Whatever the West does going forward against Russia, will always backfire and expose them as the ‘naked king.’ It is yet another proof that the Western way of rampant globalism and predatory colonialism has painted itself into a corner, discrediting its outdated model irreversibly. It’s on its way out — it will continue crumbling and withering, and nothing can stop that.

Dear friends,

If you value your well-being and your future, you should be now seriously considering relocation out of harms way and to greener pastures; you should be working on securing your assets; you should heed my advise and prepare by learning my timeline and predictions for the future crucial events! You can only find the real collapse timelines, predictions and unique multidimensional wisdom, which will help you navigate the turbulent waters of today and tomorrow, in LADA RAY’S EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS.

To make you aware of what’s to come and help you be prepared for the Great Earth Shift on time is the sole mission of my new 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES!

Hope this answer helps. Please share this article with others… if you want them to know the truth!

***Incidentally, going forward, I will only be able to answer questions as part of a LIVE WEBINAR! The date/time for the FREE BONUS LIVE Q&A WEBINAR for all  3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS participants will be announced in July! You’ll be able to reserve your VIP Seat at that time! I plan other LIVE WEBINARS this year and next, as well. Stay tuned!

P.S. MORE THOUGHTS ADDED 6/28/17!

I just got the chance to read the comments and I am very glad that some see through the manipulation. It is the disgustingness and the darkness of this manipulation / exploitation that makes it one of the least favorite and least productive topics for me to talk about. It is even worse, in my view, that so many gladly fall for it on both sides.

The only thing that will work long-term is being awake, educating oneself, and being respectful and considerate of each other in all circumstances. Once the 5th Dimension consciousness level is achieved by enough humans, such issues automatically evaporate. But every time we have the hope of our consciousness rising sufficiently, I immediately see relevant dark forces taking over and exploiting the subject (any subject), thus keeping it in the confrontational lower 3D.

Same had happened with many other social issues in the US/West, including feminism and women’s rights — so much crazy manipulation and mind games, so much silly confrontational lower 3D… and due to all that, yet another least favorite topic of mine to talk about.

But I also bit the bullet once and did a piece to clear up the confusion:

ADDED IN RESPONSE TO SOME PEOPLE’S CONCERNS:

Lada Ray

  • I did explain on previous occasion that I had many doubts for years re FB and refrained from opening an account.
    But with all its faults and problems, it still is the largest social media outlet, some readers still prefer Facebook and they have asked me to be on it.
    So, please, let’s not get carried away. It’s done.

    Same with Twitter, the second largest social network. I’ve been on Twitter for years, and I don’t know why it’s suddenly such a surprise for some.

    If anyone doesn’t like Twitter or FB, you are more than welcome to follow, like and support me through FuturisTrendcast and LadaRay.com.

    I’m very selective as to SM. However, the point of SM is, in fact, to be inclusive and to reach more people. It just has to be done intelligently.

    If you are worried that I might get ‘tainted swimming in the same waters as the sharks,’ I can assure you there is no chance of that. I multi-dimensionally protect my FB and Twitter the same way I protect FuturisTrendcast, and I don’t mix with those who aren’t my people.

    Maybe FB will even begin calibrating better as a result of me being there… 😉

    Peace to All

What can you do to help Russia hold this world together and prevent WWIII

This is a continuation of  #Trump and US #Syria Attack: Hate to Say I Told You So! #UnitedStatesOfAggression and the new Trump-Putin-China-Syria series. Today I want to talk about something more positive.

Goddess Lada3

Comment from Jimmy re. #Trump and US #Syria Attack Hi Lada, Thank you for your analysis. I’m in a state of shock and yet I’m not. If there are any suggestions you could offer for what we can do, energy-wise, to assist Russia in holding this world together and the Earth Shift, kindly do let us know. While I may be surrounded by a lot of sleeping people, I am awake and will continue to wake those that I can.  Blessings to you!

Lada Ray

  • Good question – THANK YOU.

    To help:
    1. Pray for Russia’s and Putin’s well-being and strength.
    2. Hold a space for world peace.
    3. Let your politicians and MSM know how you feel.
    4. Spread the message of FuturisTrendcast and LadaRay.com and encourage others to read them, as well as listen to my YT channel vids.

5. In addition, we’ve been reminded of one more, very important point: working on our inner world, self-awakening and uplifting our personal calibration (aka, the energy we put out to the world). 

Thanks Lada for the wonderful work you are doing. I can also clearly see the wider picture of what is happening.. I would add it is important for individuals to work on themselves uplifting their calibrations and becoming steadfast in proclaiming what truly is going on in this world…As we move towards the end of the Kali Yuga, things will get worse but in so doing, more and more people will wake up from the long sleep. Kate.

 

I believe it’s hard (most likely, impossible) to find a better tool for accurately measuring energy vibrations in our world than Quantum and Geo Calibrations. Please check out my FREE info:

IMPORTANT EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17 ADDITIONS! Lada Ray Calibrates Santa Fe, Hawaii, Princeton, Ann Arbor, Berkeley, NY, NJ!

Important new addition to  

Quality of Life Worldwide: Lada Ray Geo Calibrations and Interpretations!

Additional Geo Calibrations for the USA added!

FT’s dear friend Paleohippy pointed out that while I have mentioned a very high calibration of Santa Fe, NM in the ESR17 Interpretations Section, I have not included it in the GC Worldwide Table. While doing the Main Table I followed a ‘modified double blind scientific approach.’ I simply calibrated on the spot those geo locations within each country or continent that surfaced in my mind at that moment. In other words, I trusted my inner guidance. There was no pre-meditation or pre-knowledge, which ensures a more accurate calibration result.

It appears that Santa Fe popped into my mind as a telling example of Acceptance while writing the Interpretations, but it wasn’t on my mind during the Main Table double blind test.

I know it’s an oversight on my part as truly, Santa Fe is exceptional. Therefore, I added its GC value to the USA section of the ESR17. Santa Fe’s GC for 2017 turned out to be 310 (willingness/cooperation). Not as high as Acceptance, but still off the charts, in comparison to the rest of the world’s Geo Locations calibrated.

I also realized it wasn’t fair not to include Hawaii: another of few US geo locations with GC above 200! Since I was at it, I also decided to add more values to the USA section. It makes sense: USA is a big country and many of my followers live here. After latest additions, USA has 20 calibrations total. In addition to major US cities and some states, those who have purchased EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17 will now see calibrations for NY, NJ, MI, OH states, as well as those for Santa Fe, Hawaii, and some major college towns, such as Princeton, Ithaca, Berkeley and Ann Arbor. Check’em all out in North America – USA section!

I don’t know about you, but these calibrations in many cases surprised me, sometimes pleasantly, and sometimes not.

Also in North America section! Canada was an overall upside surprise of this report! There were other upside surprises, such as the number of large cities in Russia with GC between 200 and 280! I think it will be educational to talk about upside and downside surprises, as well as anomalies of EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17and why they have occurred. I’ll post my analysis and impressions on FuturisTrendcast after more people read the report!

As pointed out in ESR17, while worldwide calibrations are very telling, they may not be reflective of your particular situation. For example, a city or country may calibrate pretty low, yet you may reside in one part of that geo location that calibrates high. Or the place may be bad for others, but for some reason just fine for your particular needs at this time.

Case in point: one of FT followers (won’t say who to protect his privacy) who lives in the US, while his eyes are fully open to what’s happening around, won’t consider moving out of the country. After calibrating the area he lives in, it is easy to see why. The particular area where he resides calibrates very high by any measure, and especially in comparison to the rest of the country and world in general.

Therefore, to tailor GC and other calibrations to your particular needs, I’ve decided to introduce a new service: Personal Quality of Life Geo Calibration Reading.

You’ll be able to order this reading soon under CONSULTATIONS on LadaRay.com.

About this report

About Lada Ray’s Quantum and Geo Calibrations (intro excerpt)

The original Scale of Human Consciousness was developed by late David Hawkins, MD, Ph. D. using the 1000 point base scale. It was explained in his best-selling book, Power vs. Force. Lada wishes to give credit to David Hawkins pioneering work and invites everyone to read his book to familiarize oneself with the original scale. 

A calibration is normally performed through Kinesiology test (muscle test), technique traditionally used in holistic medicine and to calibrate consciousness levels. 

Lada Ray began working with the Hawkins scale since she first discovered it in 2002, helping many of her private clients through calibrations. Simultaneously, Lada Ray began discovering new and creative ways of using, expanding and perfecting the base Hawkins scale. She also discovered a number of new, original levels that were not a part of the Hawkins scale. Lada redefined some of the calibration levels, based on her expanding knowledge and understanding of the multiverse and multidimensional consciousness. Lada invented new calibration modules and created her own interpretations for each calibration. All this reshaped the base scale for the usage in the 21st Century, added depth and veracity, making the new Lada Ray scale user friendly and versatile. 

Further, Lada discovered an important distinction between Quantum Calibration (QC – cosmic force available to a subject) and Chi level (CHI – earthly energy manifest by a subject). She also defined the difference between the two.

Lada began calibrating values such as individual chakra levels and complete energy body levels, energy pollution, emotional/anger pollution, empath levels, soul levels, intelligence levels, global event probabilities, and many others. The values to calibrate are infinite, as long as Lada Ray’s strict methodology is correctly applied. 

Lada regularly performs calibrations of cosmic and angelic beings, and of the universal energy levels well beyond the 1000 point scale used for human consciousness. She also routinely monitors through calibrations various truths vs. lies, forbidden history and events in our past, present and future – beyond the obvious. 

Lada Ray’s Quantum Calibration System works to assist in the development and implementation of her EARTH SHIFT & GLOBAL BALANCER THEORY. One day Lada promises to tell the whole story of the fascinating discoveries she has made… 

Along the way of her multi-year research, Lada developed extensive interpretations of her own for each individual calibration value, tailored to specific type of calibration. Although based on the original Hawkins scale, these proprietary interpretations are entirely original. 

Lada named her new scale the UNIVERSAL QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SCALE. Short title: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS. In addition to the expanded and re-imagined scale, these titles apply to Lada Ray’s re-worked levels and their new names, new types of calibrations and their proprietary interpretations, but are not limited to those. 

Recently, Lada developed a new type of calibrations: GEO CALIBRATIONS. These are used on macro levels in order to determine the calibration levels of:

collective consciousness and consensus
global and local events
quality of life worldwide
life force energy available to a country, city or region of the world
prognosis for the development of said geo location
probability of war or peace
likelihood of general success, expansion, decline, crisis or destruction of a geo location
climate and earth change
culture, history, nature and technology
quality of people and community 

And much more can be geo-calibrated. The new Geo Calibrations are very helpful in determining personal strategies for global relocation. They are also helpful in figuring out global and regional developmental strategies. 

Lada Ray has expanded and reinvented the original Kinesiology muscle test to tailor it to her QUANTUM & GEO CALIBRATION system. She calls her testing method CHI KINESIOLOGY.

The newly updated Lada Ray Quantum Scale, and the new Geo Calibration Scale with complete interpretations is included with this report!

Also read LADA RAY QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS page on LadaRay.com.

GEO CALIBRATION GUIDELINES (small excerpt)
The Quality of Life Geo Calibrations are essentially non-political and are designed by Lada Ray to pinpoint the best and/or worst places to live on our planet. This report allows you to compare and understand where any geo-location (country, region, city, continent) falls on the scale, relative to neighbors.

For the purposes of this report, Lada would have preferred not to talk about politics at all. However, due to the ongoing tectonic global change facilitated by the Great Earth Shift, the war vs. peace, political, geopolitical and safety factors figure prominently into this study. Depending on how a geo location fares in these parameters, a cumulative calibration may dramatically change. 

How the Quality of Life criteria are calibrated: 
They are calibrated from the standpoint of the collective consciousness (general consensus) and based on typical standard of living expectations of those residing in the West. However, in cases where politics, culture and aesthetics are involved, the study has been tailored to a more educated, holistic, awakened and enlightened perspective, such as Lada Ray’s and many of her followers. We want the best for ourselves in all respects, don’t we?

Lada Ray’s Quality of Life Criteria include 22 major values, including:
Infrastructure, roads, technology and Internet, transportation, cultural and historic richness and beauty, leisure and entertainment, climate and weather, housing quality and affordability, cost of living, food and restaurants, levels of pollution, business and careers, how holistic and spiritual the location is, nature and natural beauty, medical and holistic/spa services, education, cleanliness, community, law and order, political stability, economic stability. (Complete criteria listed in the report)

For added clarity and insight, report also includes an in-depth, illustrative overview and interpretation of Lada Ray’s Quantum and Geo Calibrations.

Easy to read, extensive Quality of Life Geo Calibrations Table includes all continents, 120 countries, many major regions and cities. 

This report has been a result of years of study, experimentation and practice.

New intel! Radiation levels spike in Balakleya, Ukraine as a result of arms depot explosion

Follow up to Horrific catastrophe unfolding at Ukraine’s largest Balakleya arms depot! 

Were there tactical nukes stored there? This story at Veterans Today (US website) seems to think that some “Tactical Nukes” that Ukraine had lied about were still stored there and that some of these tactical nukes ‘cooked off’ hence the huge fireballs and mushroom clouds. Its a very interesting story. I’m wondering if you have an angle on this at all. ttp://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/03/25/exclusive-nuclear-explosion-in-ukriane/

 

  • Nope, huge fireballs are due to Tochka-U missiles exploding. They also appear to account for mushrooms. Also the Grad tactical missiles are the ones flying out on the vid and all over the place like fireworks. These are non-nuclear. There also seems to be a great deal of banned phosphorus weapons, hence the white smoke.

    I do not think any nuke related weapons were there, thank god. None of my inside sources, who are local, very reliable and in the know, raised this issue.

    Also, Ukraine nuke capacity is monitored by Russia, US and EU very closely. This would have been already a huge scandal if so. So, no.

 

My today’s update to that response:

There are reports of a significant spike in radiation levels in Balakleya. Ukraine actually does not have nuclear weapons, per my earlier reply. However, per newly surfacing reports, many of the conventional weapons contained in that depot included depleted uranium! And the weapons in the depot were used to bomb the people of Donbass. 

The fire and explosions are still continuing in the largest in Ukraine Balakleya arms depot, Kharkov Oblast. Before the catastrophe it contained over 134,000 weapons. 

Source for this new intel is Ukrainian Antifascist Channel: В Киеве топчут флаги ЕС. В Балаклее значительно повысился радиационный фон. The people behind this channel include ex-Rada deputy Oleynik and ex-Ukraine PM Azarov.

I also received this question: 

Nemo1024 Dear Lada, what’s your thoughts on today’s events in Russia? I read some worrying reports, especially from Urals, Ekateringurg (the place of the special NGO activity) of a large number of the young dupes who went out on the streets. Some think this was a test run before the 2018 election to gauge the official reaction and to see how many youths can be amassed through the social media networks, and fronted by Navaly…

Lada Ray:

The short answer: it’s part of it, but the whole thing is a lot deeper than that. Ukraine, US and EU events are directly connected to what has happened in Russia and Belarus this past weekend.

Long answer when I get the chance. I may do another Earth Shift Report because it is all very important.

However, today we are talking

Russian Duma to introduce fast-track Russian citizenship and green card lottery

political-map-of-russia

Some people have been asking me for more information on Russian citizenship and green card (aka, permanent residency) application process. You may recall I wrote about this last year as Russia first announced the simplified Russian citizenship for those born in Russia or whose ancestors were born and lived on the territory of Russia: Russia Adopts Simplified New Citizenship Law.

The political and societal pressure has been tremendous to introduce simplified fast-track citizenship process for millions that are now awaiting their turn. A bottleneck of applicants has formed. Hundreds of thousands are applying from the West and millions more from Ukraine and post-Soviet space. This often happens to countries whose life force is on the rise, as is the case in Russia, per my predictions. Read: Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force?

Russian government is always extremely careful to give out citizenships to so many new people. I am with all those Russian politicians and personalities who urge the government to extend simplified citizenship requirements to more people, including all those who were born of the entire territory of the former USSR and/or Russian Empire. Presently, it only applies to those who can claim heritage on today’s territory and within the borders of the Russian Federation. This may exclude some people who are ethnically Russian, or definitely consider themselves Russian, regardless of ethnicity, but whose ancestors may have not lived on today’s territory of RF, but rather in Kiev/Malorossia, Novorossia, Lithuania or Belarus. Of course, the difficulty is that if citizenships are issued more freely to those who are from other parts of the post-Soviet space, there is a heightened risk of subversive element infiltration from Western Ukraine, Baltics and Central Asia. Therefore, extreme caution is justified.

Still, this is a big leap forward.

This breaking news is from RT. (Thanks to FT contributor Stanislav Sokolov/ Nemo for the link):

The Russian parliament is set to consider a new bill that would fast-track naturalization for people born in Russia or whose ancestors were born within the current borders of the Russian Federation.

The bill was prepared by several lawmakers from the majority party United Russia, including the head of the Lower House Committee for Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots, Konstantin Zatulin, and former chief prosecutor of Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya.

In its current draft, the bill introduces changes to federal laws on citizenship and the legal status of foreign citizens, and allows people born in Russia and those who have ancestors born within the current borders to receive residence permits without having to provide documents proving they have given up their previous citizenship. The current law allows this only for those whose ancestors permanently lived within the current borders.

The sponsors of the bill said that it had been developed in accordance with a decree issued by President Vladimir Putin in late 2012. Back then, Putin ordered lawmakers to develop and pass laws that would enable citizenship to be granted faster to people of Russian heritage who want to renounce their current citizenship and move to Russia, including descendants of citizens of the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire.

In recent years, several bills have been in the works on simplifying the rules for granting citizenship to certain groups, in particular investors and people of Russian heritage – those who speak Russian, and have at least one ancestor who was a permanent resident of any area within the current borders of the Russian Federation.

In one of the latest proposals, MP Konstantin Zatulin (United Russia) proposed granting Russian citizenship to children with one Russian parent without the consent of their foreign parent, saying it would increase the legal protection of Russian citizens who live abroad.

Also, in late 2016, the legislature of St. Petersburg prepared a bill that would allow the government to issue residence permits as prizes in a free lottery for foreign citizens, much like the ‘green card lottery’ held annually by the US.

 ADDED INFO:

1EarthUnited It’s good that the Russian Government is rewarding loyalty and support by repatriation of former soviet citizens in a timely manner. As the world shifts toward nationalism (in a good way), why not attract the best ppl?  Also, Russia implementing new policy: Quietly Strips Emigres of Dual Citizenship. Read more: http://forward.com/news/world/342136/russia-quietly-strips-emigres-of-dual-citizenship/

Lada Ray Very smart. Just lately, Russians finally started doing something to ensure loyalty and commitment, and they are right. As a left over from Yeltsin’s era, previously, the rules for holding Russian passport were too lax. Russia doesn’t want to sell their citizenship off to the highest bidder, as some other countries are doing. Another thing: this way you know who your real friend is. Many who hold dual and triple citizenships are oligarchs and the rich. With this class of people there are always shadow globalist interests involved. Also, this hits directly some of those who emigrated in the 1990s – 2000s to Israel, US and West in general, and who retain dual citizenship just in case. There are also some notorious and clear enemies of Russia, who reside permanently in the West and hold Russian citizenship to travel back freely, while being openly Russophobic, and possibly spies to boot. I’ve met such people.

Feeding off Prana, Existing in Third Dimension and Human Evolution

Stardust

In response to Lada Ray article, Truth about meat and dairy farms. Are organic dairy products ‘humane’? Lada’s tips on going vegan,

Noeline says 

I first became aware of the plight of animals when the train I travelled to school passed an abattoirs when I was a teenager. The humans controlling the animals prodded them with electric stickers which must have caused much pain. Everything is energy whether animal or vegetable in the holographic view of reality. I have seen plants reacting to violence too. Perhaps we should evolve and live on prana… would save a lot of hassle and allow us time to focus on many other things.

LADA RAY:

Noeline, your sensitivity to energy is admirable. I do understand how you feel. The physical existence for which we, as humans, chose to incarnate can often get both hard and tiring for those who see more than others.

Charging up our batteries directly through the universal energy would be ideal, and there are those among humans who dream of it. This is understandable longing for something purer and better. However, it is also naive.

In order to stop eating the way humans do as a rule, humanity should be at a completely different level of development. Beings in other, higher dimensions do exist this way. In the fully incarnated physical form we cannot.

Yes, it is true that humanity is slowly progressing towards a higher consciousness. As it does, a deeper understanding of how to eat better, healthier and so not to cause harm to others, emerges.

But it’s also true that in this Third Dimension (3D) experience we unavoidably become a part of the physical life-death-rebirth cycle.

This is not to denigrate 3D in any shape or form. 3D on Planet Earth is a grand experiment in the expansion of consciousness and full physical incarnation, which is highly valued in the Universe as a whole. Why is that? This is a separate discussion, which I want to have some other time.

The truth is that even at this level of human consciousness, we all also live of the energy of water we drink. We absorb (feed on) the sun energy, the moon energy, and the energy of rivers, seas, forests, wind, etc. In addition to liquid and solid foods, this is part of our charging and nutrition. It is a complete cosmic ecological system designed to sustain life in the Earthly realm of 3D.

But it’s also naive to think anything is free. In order to get anything, one way or another you have to contribute back (pay back) something valuable through your service and your very existence. The higher-dimensional beings, who charge (feed) through a direct energy exchange, do not get this ‘free’ energy for free either. They pay back through their participation in the creation, maintenance, cleaning, fixing, expansion, contraction, etc., of the Universe. Some higher-dimensional beings choose to incarnate on Earth to contribute through teaching, wayshowing, leading, and support of others.

Generally, no other being in the Universe questions the fact that they have to give back. Strangely (there is a reason for that), only humans question why and whether they must share and contribute. And only humans dream of getting something for nothing.

Therefore, the issue I have raised in: Truth about meat and dairy farms. Are organic dairy products ‘humane’? Lada’s tips on going vegan, is not meant to call on humans to starve to death, or to become something that for the majority of us, who lead active and productive lives among other humans, isn’t feasible, or even logical.

Sure, there are 5 or 6 yogi in the Himalayas who are able to sustain themselves on sun and air, while meditating. For the rest of the 7 billion on the planet this isn’t an option because our activity goes beyond meditation.

The issue I have raised is only in part about our personal physical health, well-being, as well as emotional and ethical balance.

Even more so, it is a spiritual issue. It is the issue of practical human evolution.

A physician would give an oath to ‘first do no harm.’ For some incomprehensible reason humans assume that they own everything on Planet Earth, including animals, plants, natural resources, air and sun. They assume that they can do as they please with all the resources on our planet. This includes killing or causing pain to other humans and to innocent animals.

Great spiritual teachers always talked about treading softly on our planet, causing as little disruption through our existence as possible. I call it leaving a light footprint. I have always tried to live my life this way. This includes ‘first doing no harm’ to anyone or anything.

Unfortunately, most humans do just the opposite. Being as loud and as disruptive as possible seems to be the goal of many. It’s especially visible in the US: loud snow blowers, loud leaf blowers, gas guzzlers, unnecessary machines of all kinds. Loud noises they call ‘music,’ loud (illegal) 4th of July fireworks…Whatever happened to the good old physical exercise and working with your hands? Whatever happened to respecting other human beings around you?

It’s not just the US: many Asian countries try to outdo the US in every way possible. At the core of the problem is human fear, greed and pride – a desire to keep up with the proverbial Joneses.

What I am proposing is teaching ourselves how to live our daily lives leaving a light footprint. Living the kind of life that is good for our souls. It’s the opposite to what the majority is doing: living a life that may temporarily feel good physically and emotionally, but that camouflages an enormous void inside.

Part of the evolution of a human soul should be living consciously, taking only what you need and no more, and trying not to cause harm to anyone, including innocent animals who cannot protect themselves.

P.S. Anticipating a possible question… Incidentally, humans also feed of the energy of each other. This process occurs a lot more frequently than many think. This can be productive and empowering to each party involved, or at least neutral to the source. But it can also be predatory, or vampirical, when one wants to take, but give nothing back. This is yet another separate and very interesting discussion, for another time.

There is another process, when adverse human energy has to be cleansed, collected and/or absorbed by someone so the world can continue spinning. Empaths and Incarnated Angels are often tasked with taking on humans’ adverse energy. Not an easy feat and also a subject of a separate discussion. Stay tuned!

Hoax about Russian domestic violence, anti-Trump protests and Soros agenda

soros-clinton

A question from Polli Oliver:

Dear Lada, can you please comment on the petition currently on Change.org started by Alena Popova which states: In Russia, one woman sustains injuries from domestic violence every 12 minutes. That’s 36,000 women each year. The number may be higher since there is no official mechanism for keeping track of family violence cases.

Legislation in Russia already allows courts to be lenient with those who commit acts of domestic violence. Now, the Duma – Russia’s legislative body – is considering officially decriminalizing domestic violence by passing a new law.

Lada’s reply

Dear Polli, I can’t comment on this as I’ve never heard of such ‘statistics,’ such ‘law,’ nor of ‘Alena Popova.’ Since I monitor Russian news very seriously, this is telling.
I seriously doubt that Russian government would deliberately encourage domestic violence through legislature or any other means.

I also happen to know that the rule of law and law enforcement has been improving by leaps and bounds in Russia. As of now, I’d much rather trust most legal structures in Russia than anywhere in the West, which are getting more corrupted.

Believe it or not, there is more democracy in Russia than in the West. Any proposed law will be thoroughly debated, researched and publicly discussed in many platforms. There is public activism and social safety nets the West can only dream about. The women are well-protected in Russia – much more so than in the West, where an immigrant can rape one in a European street and get away with it.

What I don’t doubt is that ‘Alena Popova’ is a shill, on US NGO/Soros payroll.

Change.org used to be good but it’s now under Soros, didn’t you know?

Also just use your brain: what point does a Change.org petition have? No Russian would sign it in English. It is obviously a twisted data for the purpose of propaganda for the benefit of the Western English-speaking audience, designed to keep the humanitarian-oriented sheeple under control. Yet another way to vilify Russia and Russian government, along with Putin.

Let me also calibrate the truth of the petition:

QC: 85 – grief; Chi: 90 – same

Interpretation: There is very little truth in it. Any shred of truth in it has been exaggerated and twisted. 

SEE COMPLETE QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SCALE

Incidentally, this coincides well with vilifying of Trump and all this Soros/Madonna organized ‘international women’s march against Trump.’

TOO OBVIOUS

Soros heavily invested in Hillary’s election. When Trump won, he also lost a billion dollars on bad bets/derivatives and market moves. He bet heavily against Trump.

What do you expect, he’s furious and wants to get back at everyone and everything. Plus, his beloved NWO agenda is losing.

SO OBVIOUS

Russian Anthem on Hudson

Just a very beautiful comment from our supporter. And my reply. Plus a nice surprise below: Americans sing Russian Anthem in NYC and NJ to honor the victims of the Tu-154 tragedy.

timtolzmann Lada, are you okay? I hope you and your husband are well, and that all is well for you. Thank you for all you have done for us. I recently read ESR15. Mr. Putin could put the United States nuclear powered electric lights out. I am a United States person. I hope we will all wake up soon from our dream world. I am sorry for the actions internally and externally of my press and government. At least those of the president and the political parties. Your blog is very beautiful and lovely. It is so nurturing. Blessings to you and yours, and to our world.

Lada’s reply

Thank you for asking, Tim, and thanks for the wonderful words. I’ve been busy traveling. In NYC now; among other things, visiting Chinatown before the Chinese New Year for some supplies for the upcoming Year of the Fire Rooster. Very disappointing: Chinatown really lost a lot of authenticity since I was there last.

I’ll share with you all some highlights soon. Also stay tuned for the brand new Prosperity Rituals for the Chinese New Year and beyond.

In addition, I had the chance to observe the state of the New York City infrastructure vs. Russian and Chinese infrastructure. Very educational. Thinking about doing a talk about it on my YT channel, but afraid my many dear American followers won’t be happy about the comparisons.

Be back online very soon.

Blessings right back to all my wonderful readers, listeners and supporters!

Russian Anthem on Hudson: some faith in Americans restored?

First, a little pre-history:

Global Russian song flash mob

The Russian song flash mob that began in Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Odessa and Moscow in November 2016, since then spread all over the world. By the beginning of January 2017 it saw hundreds of surprising, fresh, talented and touching grassroots performances in Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Pridnestrovie, DLPR, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Australia, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Czechia, Slovakia, Egypt, Syria and other countries. From capitals to small villages, in airports, bus and train stations, or simply in the great outdoors, the flash mob shows no signs of abating.

This is my original post about the very first Russian song flash mobs: Beautiful Russian-Soviet Song Flash Mobs Unite Russians and Ukrainians Against Kiev Junta Hatred

Ever since, there were many more – some pretty amazing.

In Ukraine, under the ukro-nazi regime, participating in the Russian song flash mob is extremely dangerous. There were a number of instances when flash mob participants were threatened and attacked; in at least one instance they endured grave physical assault. Those brave people still came out and sang, despite risks. In some countries Russians and people from different countries beautifully sang together, in multiple languages. This was the case in Germany, Australia, Italy, Czechia, Slovakia, Moldova, Latvia, etc. Some of the most touching flash mobs took place in Donetsk – DPR and Lugansk – LPR, where people first-hand witnessed death and destruction, yet found the strength to sing. Some of the most beautiful flash mobs were performed in the fairytale St. Petersburg, and some of the coolest, Moldova and Pridnestrovie.

Many countries had multiple Russian song flash mobs; Canada alone as of now had at least four. The list of countries that joined the Russian flash mob continues growing. But from that list, two are conspicuously missing: USA and UK.

The Russian population in both countries is quite substantial, and perhaps – I thought – it is a testament to the quality of said population in these two countries.

Why are there Russophobic ‘Russians’ in the US?

I was asked more than once by my readers who live in the UK or US why the ‘Russians’ they meet are Russophobic. Here is your answer: unfortunately, for years there has been an artificial selection at work, as a result of which a very specific kind of Russians were welcomed and encouraged to settle in the US and UK: those who hate Russia. Certainly, not everyone is like that, and there are exceptions, but chances are you will see a disproportionate number of those who push anti-Russian and anti-Putin agenda. This is especially true for the so-called ‘Russian’ TV and media in the US, as well as any sort of social and political organizations. These organizations receive grants from the US government, as well as Soros, various US NGOs and American Zionist organizations, such as Chabad (I wrote about Chabad and its global role in ESR6: Ukraine New Khazarian Khaganate). Therefore, they are beholden to their masters and agendas those masters push.

It really bears to mention that the situation is exactly the same with Chinese media and organizations in the US. Many Chinese-Americans boycott the Chinese-American TV for being China-phobic, watching only mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan TV.

In other words, due to their sanctified anti-Russian (and anti-other-countries) agenda, the US/UK usually favor, breed and multiply a very specific type of people.

It is especially visible with those ‘Russians’ whom US elites, media and political class allow to be visible. These are the kinds of Russians, such as Gary Kasparov (who really is half-Azerbaijani and half-Jewish), who gave advice to the US to subvert Ukraine and who promised to the US that anti-Russian sanctions would result in Russia falling apart within a few short years. Of course, nothing of the sort happened.

The US (and UK too) has been stepping on this rake since Iraq: US/UK attacked Iraq in part based on self-serving advice from Saddam Hussein’s enemies who were given asylum in the US and who had personal score to settle with Saddam. The result is well-known.

Surprise: Russian Anthem on Hudson

It seemed bizarre that so many people all over the world found time, courage and enthusiasm to sing Russian songs, yet… absolute silence in the US. I was still curious when, if ever, anyone in the US – Russians, Americans, robots, Martians, anyone??… – will come out with some sort of Russian song. It never happened.

Then, just as Christmas and New Year’s began, the terrible tragedy of the Tu-154 happened, killing all on board, including 64 members of the Aleksandrov Red Army Ensemble, and the well-known humanitarian activist Liza Glinka.

Full story:

(Incidentally, I remember that I promised my own version of the Tu-154 catastrophe: was it an accident or terrorist attack? And how it was done? I didn’t want to spoil the holidays with such sad and gruesome story. But I’ll have it soon.)

After that, just before New Year’s Obama and his handlers expelled 35 Russian diplomats and their families, giving them no time to pack and gather their belongings, properly get children out of school, terminate their leases, settle financial affairs and close bank accounts. The majority of these people had to spend New Year holiday on a plane, having been thrown out of the country together with their little children.

Read:

Lada Ray Reveals Putin’s Secret! Why Putin Did Nothing After US Expelled 35 Russian Diplomats?

And suddenly, something surprising happened, something that – perhaps just a tiny bit – restored some faith in the USA and Americans. Americans (not Russians) gathered near the Russian Consulate in NYC and sang Russian Anthem to commemorate the victims of the Tu-154 catastrophe.

Here is this video. The singers from the NY Schiller Institute Choir have very nice voices and sing with their hearts. There is an American accent, but it is clear that they know what they are singing and are doing it very well. Let me also mention that the wind in Manhattan was very strong and it was freezing that day. Also notice a nice touch: the singers wear the beloved Russian symbol of victory, black and gold striped bands (Georgievskaya Lentochka). Bravo for all that!

A few days later, the same NY Schiller Institute Choir performed on the New Jersey side of Hudson River, by the Tear Drop Memorial installed on the Hudson bank, overlooking Manhattan and the former site of the New York Twin Towers. The Tear Drop monument was the post 9/11 gift from the Russian people to the American people. It was shyly tucked away on the opposite side of the river by NY and US authorities.

tear-drop-monument NJ 9 11

You can read the whole story of the monument here: The Neglected Russian Gift to the American People, Geopolitics of the Middle East and Putin

The singers were joined by the New Jersey police and firemen. This second appearance was again dedicated to the Tu-154 catastrophe and memory of the Red Army Choir. I have to say that after this my opinion of the NJ police and firemen went up significantly. Notice by the way, the ceremony is taking place during the major blizzard and snow storm we had in NY and NJ that day. It was so bad that there were deaths in some areas.

There is a multi-part video, which you can follow here: Schiller Institute sang in honor of Alexandrov Ensemble at 9/11 Tear Drop Memorial (part 1 of 3)

MY OUTRAGEOUS & FUN NEW YEAR STORIES

In my life, I happened to greet the New Year in some fun, memorable and outrageous ways, and in many fascinating places.

In the old days, back in Odessa and Moscow, we usually celebrated in a company of good friends. Being fashionably late was a sport of sorts; in our intellectual circles it was considered all in good fun. Just like in the perennially favorite Russian New Year’s film, The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath, I remember frantically trying to get to the party before the first stroke of midnight. We would catch a taxi – with difficulty – and urge the driver to go as fast as he can through the snowed-in city. Then we would storm into our friends’ apartment building clutching the requisite bottle of the Soviet Champagne (yep, it’s a famous brand) – our responsibility to bring to the party – as others nervously awaited our arrival with empty champagne flutes on hand. Then, at 11:59 sharp, as on TV the Spasskaya Tower Clock began chiming midnight, we would shout, ‘Quick, the glasses!’ and pour it just in time! New Year saved by the bell!

Later, there were many other New Years…

Once, in the 1980s, I greeted the New Year at the Tropicana Club in Havana, Cuba. Incidentally, the night club, full of hot and almost naked Cuban dancers, booze and buzz had absolutely no age restrictions. There were people of all ages, including some suspiciously young ones. But they were all divine dancers. I was invited by the club’s leading musician and manager, for whom I once translated in Russia. As a total non-drinker, I had to do some fancy footwork to enjoy the party, while avoiding drinking throughout the night.

The millennial New Year 2000 I happened to greet in Haifa, Israel. The terrorist acts were widely predicted and expected. When I was leaving to Israel before the holidays, my various Smith Barney clients begged me not to go, saying, ‘We don’t want to lose you!’ I assured them all that I would be safe. I was right, as usual. Even then, when I didn’t do it for a living, my predictions were spot on. 😉

How do you think we greeted New Year’s 2000 in Haifa? You won’t believe it, but my nice Jewish-Russian friends decided it would be fun to invite me to the Russian mega-bash at a fashionable Russian night club, called… Hollywood. The all-night entertainment program and I don’t know how-many-course holiday meal were loudly lavish, never-ending and borderline risque. We have to forgive them: they still ran on the Russian mentality of the crazy ’90s.

To be honest, I preferred to either catch up with my friends’ entire family at home or go exploring authentically Jewish and Muslim entertainment. Of course, I also did all the usual: Dead Sea, Arabic settlements, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Wailing Wall and the Holy Sepulchre.

The security on streets and airport was shocking. Let’s recall it was pre 9/11 and very bizarre to a Western eye. At the time it was very hard for an average person to understand how the entire country could constantly live under siege. The military with machine guns were everywhere you went in Jerusalem. Snipers were menacingly stationed on top of the Wailing Wall, full of Jewish worshippers in big black hats  – they did expect an attack that night.

When I was leaving Israel, a young and unsmiling airport security girl in military uniform unapologetically and unemotionally squeezed every tube of the healing Dead Sea scrubs and rare creams a bought from the famous beauty company Ahava. The whole check-up procedure lasted 45 minutes. But that was nothing compared to what they’d done to a little boy’s shoe. The Arabic family in the next aisle was told to remove their little son’s shoe. The shoe was ripped apart and tossed out to the cries of the boy. Turned out it was bomb free.

Later in the decade I understood why they did what they did.

Once in the US, for New Year’s I was stuck in our country home in the Berkshires, with only my darling kitty Lilechka for company (you see her on my pic in the top right corner of this blog). It was at the time that I began writing THE EARTH SHIFTER, while also finishing up STEPFORD, USA. Incidentally, the story of Stepford, as journalist Jade Snow gets stuck in the Berkshires alone, while her husband works in New York and abroad, is partially inspired by my own.

That New Year’s we had a totally crazy amount of snow. In town, the mountains of snow pushed from the road to the sidewalks reached second and even third floors of buildings. The sidewalks looked like narrow tunnels, dug between tall white walls. The snowfall began on the 29th and by the 30th our 1/4 mile-long driveway was covered in snow to my waist. Due to the holiday I simply could not get anyone to plow it. Meanwhile, some roads and bridges from New York were closed and my hubby was unable to drive back home. When they cleared the roads and he finally arrived on the night of Jan. 1, I saw his car’s dim lights on the other side of the massive white sheet. Thank god he brought a shovel. We dug simultaneously from both sides, illuminated only by the bright moon’s light, until we met in the middle. That night I fully understood how the WWII Russians and Western allies felt when they met on Elba in 1945.

At other times I greeted the New Year on Red Square, and on Times Square. My Times Square New Year has its own funny story, which I’ll tell another time. Those times I spent New Year on Red Square, and generally in Moscow, are some of my most treasured.

Watch BELOVED RUSSIAN NEW YEAR COMEDIES OF ALL TIME!

Genya, the main hero of the aforementioned The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath says: ‘We have a tradition. Every year, on December 31, my friends and I gather at the banya.’ (Banya is a traditional Russian wet sauna or steam room.) That fateful phrase began the incredible adventure, which became the beloved Russian film of all time.

Just like Genya and his friends, we also have a family tradition. For New Year’s we watch the nostalgic Russian movies. Today, I want to share with you the treasures of the golden era of Soviet/Russian cinematography, which we enjoy every year.

Of course, the staple: The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath. You can find it on Amazon, or at certain Russian stores. The original made in the 1970s has the incredible magic and freshness that contemporary films are simply unable to reproduce. After all these years, it hasn’t lost its mega-popularity. There is a contemporary Irony of Fate part 2, which is also not at all bad.

Unfortunately, Irony of Fate is unavailable on YouTube. But the good news, I found several other all-time New Year favorites! And the best thing, they are posted on YouTube for FREE and they come with English subs! All highly recommended by me!

NEW RUSSIAN FILMS JUST ADDED!

Some have already celebrated the New Year. Still 12/31/16 on my side of the pond.  As promised, FREE links to some of my fave Soviet/Russian New Year’s films. These are all 5 stars or above in my classification, in other words, world classics and eternal favorites (for more on my rating scale see Russian films page on FT – under RUSSIA tab above!)

NOTE! Most of these come with English subs. Because Mosfilm owns copyright, I cannot post them on FT. Please click on links below to watch on YouTube! These are unlisted, the links can only be obtained through watching a Russian version. This means Mosfilm frowns upon sharing. So, please be considerate – I am sharing only with my blog’s loyal readers, those who genuinely love Russia and are interested in her culture.

Carnival Night – Eng subs (Rus: Карнавальная ночь)

 5+ STARS. I love this 1956 musical romantic comedy. The songs from it – true for many Soviet films! – became instant hits and classics. Not a New Year goes by without ‘5 Minutes’ and ‘The Good Mood’ being played and replayed over and over on radio and TV.

Blurb: The bureaucratic and nosy new director of the Cultural Club Ogurtsov annoyingly interferes with the preparations of the event of the year, the New Year Carnival, by demanding bizarre and non-sensical changes to the program. The party organizers are in despair, but their determination to make the concert and carnival a success help them outwit Ogurtsov.

Song ‘5 MINUTES’

Gentlemen of Fortune (Rus: Джентльмены удачи)

5+ STARS – WOULD GLADLY GIVE IT 10+! 1971. Sorry, no Eng subs. One of my fave movies of all time, a comedy with cute songs, great acting and immortal lines that became instant sayings. It is one of my New Year’s films as the action takes place mainly around New Year’s, part in Moscow and part in hot Central Asia.

This is the story of a kindly principal of a Moscow kindergarten, who also happens to be a WWII hero, and who is a spitting image of a dangerous criminal. Taking advantage of this incredible likeness, Soviet police decides to infiltrate him into the gang to find the missing archeological treasures. As the gang retraces their steps to try to find the treasures hidden by their ring leader, while experiencing various adventures along the way, our kindly kindergarten teacher subtly, and unbeknownst to him, manages to change the psyche of the gang members, who slowly develop consciousness.

Джентльмены удачи Awesome Theme Song (Gentlemen of Fortune)

The Prisoner of Caucasus, or the New Shurik’s Adventures  – Eng subs (Rus: Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика) Note, Mosfilm translates it as ‘The Caucasian Prisoner.’

5+ STARS. Awesome, cool, full of action Soviet comedy, peppered with satire and great lines that became instant classics and a part of Russian culture.

Blurb: An eccentric comedy about a student named Shurik, who goes to the Caucasus for work and meets local chief Saakhov, a man full of guile. Having been duped by conniving Saakhov, Shurik, with the assistance of three famous crooks, abducts the beautiful Nina. Now it’s up to Shurik to figure out where Nina is held prisoner and how to save her.

(This is for those who asked me about Putin’s reference to this film! You may recall Putin mentioned a line from this film in his recent annual Q&A – the one about who destroyed the 17th century chapel: ‘And the 17th century chapel we have also destroyed?’ In the comment section I’d explained what that line meant. Note, in the movie they are actually referring to the 14th century chapel. Please see full explanation in comments for Putin holds annual Q&A marathon (FULL VIDEO – Eng))

Operation Y and Shurik’s Other Adventures – Eng subs (Rus: Операция «Ы» и другие приключения Шурика

5+ STARS. The first film about the kindly and soft-hearted Shurik, who, when necessary, can show spunk and courage. The second film in the Shurik trilogy is The Prisoner of Caucasus. In this first instalment, Shurik is still a student; the film consists of 3 separate hilarious and educational episodes, describing his funny and inadvertently heroic adventures.

Blurb: A series of 3 short film comedies, where the protagonist, a student named Shurik: 1. reforms a malicious idler at a construction site; 2. frantically prepares for an exam, failing to notice his exam preparation buddy is actually a pretty girl; 3. with the help of a granny catches three burglars attempting to rob a warehouse.

And it’s 2017!

ADDED JAN. 1. 2017. These two Russian films are great to watch any time of year!

Ivan Vasilievich Changes Professions – with english subtitles  (Rus: Иван Васильевич меняет профессию). In the US it was released as ‘Ivan Vasilievich Back to the Future.’

5+ STARS – deserves all 10!

Hilarious and charming comedy, with elements of social satire, based on M. Bulgakov’s play “Ivan Vasilievich” about a time machine, which inadvertently transports the smart czar Ivan the Terrible into the twentieth century. At the same time, tsar Ivan’s look-alike, not very bright bureaucrat Bunsha, together with a shrewd thief George Miloslavsky, by mistake get transported  into the ancient Russia. The result is a cool and funny comedy of errors you’ll remember.

This is also the third installment of Shurik’s adventures, where Shurik is a researcher and inventor of the time machine.

.
.
The Diamond Arm  – with english subtitles (Rus: Бриллиантовая рука)
.

5+ STARS – deserves all the stars it can get! Cool, sweet, action packed, comical and satirical, with great songs and soundtrack, with lines that became instant hits and a part of the Russian culture. Funny and fun – don’t miss!

Blurb: An awkward and kind-hearted family man, Semyon Semyonovich, by mistake gets entangled in a major smuggling operation during his tour abroad. Being confused with the crook he travels with, he becomes the unwilling and unwitting courier, carrying precious jewels in his fake arm cast. Throughout the dangerous and elaborate cat a mouse game, which turns into a comedy of errors, Semyon Semyonovich manages to outsmart the international criminals.

SPIRITUAL GEOPOLITICS: A merger between Geopolitics & Multi-Dimensional Consciousness

lr-spiritual-geopolitics

 

A merger between Geopolitics & Multi-Dimensional Consciousness

Lada Ray’s SPIRITUAL GEOPOLITICS

A misnomer or the future?

 

This article has been originally published on LADARAY.COM (as part of Lada Ray’s Earth Shift System)

You may have noticed that I usually talk about geopolitics from a higher consciousness perspective. One of the tenets of my EARTH SHIFT SYSTEM is what I call the Spiritual GeoPolitics. In fact, I maintain that a merger between GeoPolitics and Higher Consciousness/Spirituality must take place for humanity to survive the ongoing Earth Shift and evolve to new levels.

In our divided yin-yang 3rd dimensional reality those who are spiritually oriented tend to be scared and shy away from politics and geopolitics, as well as all things that are used as geopolitical tools, such as news and info wars, confrontation and the military. Meanwhile, those who are into politics tend to misunderstand, dismiss, and/or be terrified of things that are beyond their 3D understanding, including metaphysics and consciousness.

Both of these approaches are limiting and neither is viable in the new reality, which the ongoing Earth Shift is ushering in. Both are manifestations of severe human imbalances, denoting a sorry state of our divided and compartmentalized world.

The right way is the integral approach. I know it’s very hard. But in order to create a new reality, we must embrace our world the way it is – in all its manifestations. Denial only prolongs the agony and slows us down on the way to a better future. We must take off our rosy glasses or open our shutters, in order to see the truth (pick what applies to you!). Opening our eyes, hearts and minds to the truth of how the world is and where it’s heading is the first step in the right direction. It is not by accident that the word ‘truth’ has become one of the key words of this decade. People crave the truth and want to understand our past, present and future – beyond the obvious. People want the lies and secrecy, previously dominating the collective unconscious matrix of our planet, to be brought to light.

The good news is that more and more people are awakening to the fact that they must keep open minds and explore beyond their comfort zone. Those who genuinely want to awaken and see, experience synchronicities whereas the universe ushers into their path the wayshowers and guides, such as yours truly. These guides and wayshowers help the awakened ones orient themselves in this ever-expanding world of new ideas, realms and possibilities.

It’s also not by accident that in the past 5-10 years, the word ‘geopolitics’ has suddenly become popular and widely used. It’s a call of the times: one of the areas of human experience that we must explore, shine the light on and rectify.

So, what is the catch-all word ‘geopolitics’? Let’s use a pretty run of the mill explanation from newworldencyclopedia.orgGeopolitics attempts to explain international politics in terms of geography, based on factors such as the location, size, and resources of each area. Swedish political scientist Rudolf Kjellén coined the term “geopolitics” at the beginning of the twentieth century.’

That was the beginning of the conventional Western science of geopolitics. Subsequently, British scholar Halford Mackinder came out with his “heartland theory.” According to that geopolitical theory, ‘The World Island’ included the great land mass of Europe, Asia, and Africa, aka, the Heartland, with the stress put on the resources and land mass of Ukraine, Western Russia, and Mitteleuropa (Central Europe). The ‘Periphery’ included the Americas, British Isles, and Oceania. Mackinder’s theory can be summed up in his saying “Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland. Who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island. Who rules the World-Island commands the world.” Influenced by Mackinder’s theory, Adolf Hitler invaded Russia in 1941, which he saw as being necessary for world domination.

Disagreeing with Mackinder, other British and American scholars coined the terms ‘sea power’ vs. ‘land power.’ Under this theory, sea powers were USA and UK, while land powers were Germany, Russia (USSR) and China. A number of others were classified as hybrids. According to the sea power vs. land power branch-out, the sea powers (aka, USA and UK) will always have an advantage at sea and will, therefore, dominate the world. Influenced by this very convenient theory, throughout 20th century USA stressed the development of its Navy to control the world’s oceans and straits. Another variation of geopolitical theory that emerged during the Vietnam War was the “domino theory,” the idea that communism would seek to take over adjacent countries one by one, like a row of falling dominoes. This argument was used for U.S. intervention in Vietnam.

These are, in a nutshell, the old geopolitical theories. As we see, since its appearance, the geopolitical sound bite was used by the West to justify aggression and promote the idea of its global dominance under different names and slogans.

Despite one theory after another being proven bogus, the word GeoPolitics refused to go away. In the end of 20th-beginning of 21 centuries, there were new off-shoots of those old geopolitical theories, which now began focusing on diplomacy, how to keep the world in balance, and on preserving peace.

The reason this major breakthrough took place was two-fold:
1. On the 3D physical level: it was pure self-preservation (in my Quantum Calibrations Scale it corresponds with the level of Pride). Cold War and nuclear arms race proved that there could be no winner if a hot war between superpowers took place.
2. On the level of energy and consciousness: humanity’s consciousness had risen to the level of vibration at which reason and even humanity began peeking through (See my Quantum Calibrations Scale for more).

But it was still all happening based on the old Western geopolitical foundation.

Recently, a prominent Russian analyst and one of the authors of the KOB theory (Eng.: The Concept of Collective Security) told me that I shouldn’t use the term ‘geopolitics’ because it was invented by the West to justify its global aggression in order to keep the rest of the world down (true). He said that I should use the term global politics instead, and that geopolitics was just for dupes (untrue).

I responded that in reality the expression ‘global politics’ means approximately the same as ‘geopolitics.’ The only difference: geopolitics rolls off the tongue easier and sounds better.

Geopolitics comes from Greek and means (γῆ ge “earth, land” and πολιτική politikē “politics”). Therefore, ‘geo’ is our globe, or our Earth. ‘Politics’ refers to relations among humans and nations. In fact, if we abstract ourselves from the outdated ‘land power’ vs. ‘sea power’, ‘heartland’ and ‘domino’ theories – used by various Western powers as justification for their aggression – we get a solidly good term GeoPolitics.

I am for remembering our past because, as we know, those who forget it, don’t have a future. Why throw out a perfectly good term? Why reinvent the wheel? It’s much better to clean it up, rebalance it and infuse it with new, forward-looking meaning.

I began with re-defining GeoPolitics from a higher consciousness perspective.

Lada Ray defines GeoPolitics as: 

The Science and Practice of Human and State Relations on Planet Earth

Spiritual Geopolitics is defined as:

A merger between geopolitics, spirituality and multi-dimensional consciousness.
This merger is of crucial importance in order to transform the existing human 3D consciousness of confrontation into the 5D consciousness of cooperation and unity, during this Earth Shift. 

  

Balance is key. The yin-yang duality of our planetary existence has become catastrophically imbalanced, and it has to be brought back into a state of equilibrium.

From a spiritual perspective, geopolitics is the shadow side of the collective human experience on our planet. Shadows are as important as light, if used correctly. The thing we have to fear is not the presence of the shadows, but an imbalance of too much shadow and distortion of truth.

Geopolitics is the way large groups of humanity, residing in different geographic locales, with different languages, interests, aspirations and levels of development, have learned to interact with each other. So far, we have no other such mechanism.

Geopolitics is a 3rd-4th dimensional creation. As such, it is an imperfect construct, if looked at from a higher consciousness perspective. But it is a construct produced by the collective consciousness of humans. As such, it corresponds with the present day energy and vibration of humanity as a whole.

Just like anything else, GeoPolitics is a mere tool and it’s up to humans to use it for good or evil. Like any tool, GeoPolitics has to be cleaned and kept in good order, to be functional. Yet, here’s what happened in the past 30 or so years: as the global human society became more and more imbalanced towards the yang West, so did geopolitics. Today we are experiencing Earth Shift, which manifests in GeoPolitics as follows:
1. Along with Russia The Great Balancer working hard on rebalancing the world, GeoPolitics also undergoes major cleansing and re-thinking.
2. But there are still lots of shadows and skeletons hiding in various crevices of the old geopolitics, which need to be dragged out of those shadows and exposed to light.

My mission is to:

1. Shine the rays of truth into these shadows, exposing them to light.

2. Assist the Earth Shift and co-create new planetary reality. One of my goals is to perfect and re-think GeoPolitics to correspond with new consciousness.

Where to Invade Next: Michael Moore Documentary (and #911truth) w. film links!

I have to say, I missed Michael Moore’s sparkling humor and his ability to get to the very hard-hitting emotional and existential core of the big issues he likes to tackle. Without question the best documentary filmmaker alive, he at one point or another woke up a lot of Americans to the real state of affairs in their country and beyond. My personal Michael Moore favorites are Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11.

 Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Official Trailer

fahrenheit-911-cover

In my opinion, Capitalism: A Love Story wasn’t hard-hitting enough. It felt as if Moore held back in many places due to personal threats and the movie industry’s refusals to show it in the USA. Pity: the film, which still helped people understand things that were previously concealed by American propaganda, became compromised as a result. From what I’ve heard, for many Americans it was still a revelation. Personally for me it was either old news or half-truths, perhaps due to the fact that I knew the whole story, having been born in the USSR and having lived in various countries and on various continents, including Russia, Ukraine, China, USA, Cuba and Europe… And, incidentally, having worked at AIG and Smith Barney/Citigroup.

Capitalism: A Love Story – Trailer

I already am in love with the title of the new one: Where to Invade Next. Moore is a master of titles – as someone who constantly sweats to find a worthy name for my various written works, I admire his titling prowess. The trailer sounds very promising, too. Can’t wait to watch the film!

Trailer for Where to Invade Next – new 2016 release in Blu-ray:

Michael Moore movies

P.S. Granted, I don’t watch TV, but it appears Where to Invade Next film was successfully silenced, since it first came out last year. Yet I’ve only just heard about it due to US elections and its re-release in Blu-ray in 2016.

If you want to watch the film:

ADDED 9/12/16 Quick Review!

Just finished watching the film. Can probably give it 3 stars, no more. Actually, I expected more from Michael Moore. There were some good finds and things in it that I would agree with. However, overall it felt like it was made for the lowest common  denominator and there were too many half-truths in it. My reaction to this one was similar to ‘Capitalism, a Love Story’ above. In other words, I’m too advanced for it, but it is probably the kind of movie that may be good for average  Americans to help wake them up.

The fifteenth 9/11 anniversary

P.S. Yesterday I’ve escaped the noisy and crowded New York City, and today is a 9/11 anniversary. Notice that I have published this post at exactly 8:45 on 9/11/16. Fifteen years ago at this very minute the first ‘plane’ hit first of the Twin Towers in New York City, changing our lives forever. At the time I worked for Smith Barney. I vividly recall what happened the morning of 9/11/2001, having observed the whole thing in slow motion from my office in NJ, while constantly thinking that I had a narrow escape.

I described what I saw and knew at the time in this post:  The Neglected Russian Gift to the American People, Geopolitics of the Middle East and Putin.

The neglected gift refers to a Russian sculptor’s monument dedicated to the victims of 9/11, which was shyly relegated by US authorities to out-of-the-way NJ backwaters. Here it is (read and see more pics in the post linked above):

tear-drop-monument NJ 9 11

The truth of 9/11 turned out to be very different from the one portrayed by official US propaganda. It’s not news anymore. Still, it’s good to review the facts once in a while. I’d published this compilation as a record keeper and a reminder: What Really Happened on 9/11? Telling Video Compilation.

Also, listen to new radio show: Freeman Fly Occult Symbology – 9/11 Special Interview – The Cosmic Switchboard. And stay tuned for my upcoming news!

Discovering The Real Belarus – with awesome pics!

Belarus 2

In this post we are offering you an rare glimpse of the many facets of Belarus. There has been a stigma attached to Belarus in the West, while the real understanding and truthful assessment of what’s happening in those parts is non-existent. West-dominated global media has simply accepted the claim that Belarus is a dictatorship and until recently it was generally accepted in the West that if Belarus hasn’t fallen apart yet, it surely soon will.

The truth is entirely different, of course. Just to give you an idea of a typical Western MSM bashing approach, here is an excerpt from UK’s ‘Independent.’

WARNING! This 2012 piece from UK’s publication ‘Independent’ will probably make you roll your eyes and shake your head due to how badly it misses the mark and because in 2016 WE KNOW what subsequently happened to the countries and leaders mentioned in it. But I want to assure you that it’s not the focus of our article. The only reason I mention the ‘Independent’ piece is to provide a perspective and so you could understand fully what Belarus is up against and what kind of madmen we are dealing with in the West.

After this, we will proceed to our today’s Belorussia feature. FT contributor Stanislav Sokolov (Nemo) and I have prepared a real treat for you! But that’s for sweet desert. Before we get to that, here’s a telling excerpt from the ‘Independent.’ Note that the article below was written and an interview was taken by a former Russian, working for ‘Independent,’ whose personal views coincide with typical Western propaganda.

The ‘Independent’ excerpt:

LINK: What’s so good about democracy anyway? Audience with the last dictator in Europe – 2012

QUOTE: As President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko has made the former Soviet state a pariah nation. In a rare interview, he says that it’s security rather than freedom that his people really want.

Alexander Lukashenko

It is said you can judge a man by the company he keeps. If so, Alexander Lukashenko – President of Belarus for the last 18 years – is sending out worrying signals.

Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian President whose regime has overseen the massacres of Houla and Daraya, is described as “wonderful” and “an absolute European, civilized man”. Colonel Gaddafi is name-dropped, as is Saddam Hussein.

Sat amid the faux grandeur of his offices in Minsk, he recalled the cosy chats he once shared with the former Libyan autocrat – “I told him: ‘Muammar, you need to sort things out with Europe yourself!’ Then he told me about his relationship with Sarkozy” – and more darkly about how the West turned on his old Iraqi confidant.

“American envoys came to see me before the crisis in Iraq and asked me to say that there were nuclear weapons in Iraq. I refused. They even told me that things would go well for Belarus in terms of investments, etc. All I had to do was to support them.

“I told them that I couldn’t do it because I knew that there were no nuclear weapons there. And, after talking to Hussein back then, I told them that Hussein was ready to come to an agreement with them regarding oil, if that’s what they were after, and other things. Just don’t bomb; don’t destroy the country! He was ready to show – and showed – all these [alleged WMD] sites.

“Their answer was: ‘We believe you, but the war machine’s engine is already running too fast.’ I swear to you that this conversation took place and that a man came to see me and we were discussing this matter in this very room.”

With that he leant back and stared intently at me. An imitation fire flickered in the hearth, the plastic logs casting a febrile glow across the left-side of his face.

“It’s a double standard,” he insisted with some justification. “Americans want to make us democratic. Go make Saudi Arabia democratic! Do we look like Saudi Arabia? Far from it! Why not make them democratic? Because he is a son of a bitch, but he is our son of a bitch.

“You’re bandits. Democratic bandits. You’ve destroyed thousands, maybe millions of people [in Iraq and Afghanistan].” He exclaimed: “I’m living through being democratised with a truncheon on the head by the West every day. Who needs that kind of democracy?”

Authoritarianism is still prevalent in former Soviet states. It was why I had wanted to visit Belarus and meet its leader. I wanted a reminder of where we had come from. To my disquiet, what I found was a warning of what might happen if other ex-Soviet countries in the region turn away from Europe and back towards the past.

Google Lukashenko and the prefix you find most given is “Europe’s last dictator”. It was a moniker coined in 2005 by the United States when it called on the people of Belarus to cast off the “yoke of tyranny”.   (END QUOTE)

LADA’S NOTES

What can I add to this? Everything’s clear, isn’t it? What an absolute fiasco of an article. I literally have never seen a publication or a ‘journalist’ manage to put their foot in their mouth so many times in the course of several paragraphs. Lukashenko was, after all, right about weapons of mass destruction and Iraq invasion, about Gaddafi, about Assad, Saudi Arabia, USA, and West in general. Moreover, he turned out a lot more right in his approach towards building and preserving his country than the bordering Ukraine, previously the darling of the West among post-Soviet states. All one has to do is recall Ukraine’s 2014 ukro-nazi color revolution and its catastrophic consequence of civil war, economic destruction and country’s breakup.

How fascinating it is to read that clueless 2012 article from the height of the knowledge and experience we possess in 2016. How much food for thought and how many lessons it brings to light!

Belarus

2016 map of Belarus and surrounding countries

In 2015 I visited Belarus and its capital Minsk. I was invited to deliver a high-level consultation on geopolitical and global economic developments, followed by an offer of a long-term consulting position. I talk more about that in my recent post: Eurasia Developments: Belarus Monetary Reform; Moscow World’s Most Dynamic City; Armenia Joins Russian Air Defence.

Belarus, also called Belorussia, is the western-most post-Soviet republic, which first acquired independence in 1991, after then heads of Russia (Yeltsin), Belarus and Ukraine met in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, a famous nature preserve on Belorussian territory, and decided to go their separate ways. The Belovezhskaya Pushcha Agreement is considered by many in the post-Soviet space illegal; there are growing demands to annul it and classify it as treason. Whether there is any chance of that happening is a different story, which I’ll touch upon in one of the future Earth Shift Reports.

Before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution Belarus was an integral part of Russia. Before the independence was handed to Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic on a platter in 1991, Belarus never had any history of statehood. Belorussian language was in fact considered a western-Russian dialect, much like the Ukrainian language.

As a linguist I can tell you that compared to Belorussian, Ukrainian dialect was infinitely more developed and prominent, and had more characteristics of a language. For one: a number of big authors wrote in it, which is one of the required characteristics for a language status. The most prominent such author is a 19th century Russian literary genius Nikolay Gogol; others worth mentioning: Taras Shevchenko, Lesia Ukrainka and Grigory Skovoroda. Two: several million spoke Ukrainian, which again isn’t sufficient, but a helpful characteristic to classify a dialect as a language. None of these characteristics are present in Belorussian.

That said, even the exceptionally developed southern-Russian, aka, Malorussian/Ukrainian was still a dialect. Most writers, such and Gogol, still primarily used Russian language in their work; in cities, such as Kiev, people mostly spoke Russian, while in villages mostly Ukrainian or a mix.

Let’s also recall that the area surrounding Kiev and what is today central Ukraine was traditionally called Malorossia (aka Russia Minor, as opposed to The Greater Russia). The words ‘Ukraine’ and ‘Ukrainian’ came from Polish. These words don’t need a translation in any Slavic language, simply meaning ‘on the edge’ or ‘outskirts.’ The 19th century Polish and Austria-Hungarian landlords labeled so the poor villagers who were under their yoke in western Ukraine. It was later that the label was expanded to central Ukraine and Kiev, which wasn’t considered a part of Ukraine.

By 1922, Lenin insisted that the core Russian territories of east and south be added to Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. The reason was geopolitically and politically expedient at the time, but it created a long-term disaster, as we are seeing today. I lay out the entire spread on the issues of Ukraine, Malorossia, its true history and language issues, why Lenin made such disastrous decisions, and much more in my Ukraine-dedicated Earth Shift Reports: ESR2, ESR3 and ESR6.

Both Ukrainian and Belorussian dialects were given the status of languages by Lenin during the formation of the USSR in 1922. Compared to Ukrainian/Malorussian, Belorussian dialect was much less developed, being its poor cousin. Therefore, it has taken a lot more effort, with very little result, to mold a dialect into any semblance of a proper language. Despite the widespread availability of the artificially created Belorussian language, most in Belarus speak Russian.

Belorussian President since 1994, Alexander Lukashenko, has been labeled by the West ‘the last dictator of Europe.’ Belarus and Lukashenko have been under Western sanctions since 1990s and to this day very few Western countries have diplomatic relations with Belarus.

Yet, as I discussed in IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?, Belarus expertly navigated the turbulent waters of the Western-financed color revolutions and economic crises and is still doing pretty well, avoiding many potential disasters.

Moreover, Lukashenko, whom I call ‘the sly fox,’ managed to capitalize on Ukraine’s problems, on the rift between EU and Russia and on anti-Russian sanctions. Sometimes he plays a peacemaker or gracious host, as in the case of hosting Ukraine-DNR/LNR Minsk negotiations with Putin, Hollande and Merkel. The result of that was that some of the long-standing anti-Belarus sanctions came off.

On the other hand, capitalizing on the Russian sanctions, Belarus engaged in piracy and illegal distribution: for example, enterprising Belorussians would import banned produce and goods from the EU, then slap Belorussian labels on them and pass them on the Russian market as their own. This underhanded approach offended Russians and even caused a public clash between Putin, when he pointed out the facts of piracy, and Lukashenko. Under Putin’s pressure, Lukashenko was eventually forced to crack down on illegal bait-and-switch, and relations normalized again. 

Lukashenko is a sly fox and an outspoken eccentric, who once in a while does put his foot in his mouth. But for the time being he is the only leader who can keep Belarus together and in pretty good shape, especially considering the mess in the nearby Ukraine and Baltics. Moreover, Belarus, along with Kazakhstan, plays an exceedingly important role as a support system for Russia in her role as the Great Global Balancer. Belarus also actively participates in the shaping up of the new, multi-polar world. For this reason, Lukashenko is forgiven his lapses and eccentricities and Belarus is treated by Russia with kid gloves.

And here is the treat I promised! And did I mention that Stanislav is also an awesome photographer? Check out a treasure trove of his Minsk pics! Along the way of his travels Stanislav also visited Helsinki, Finland, so we have thrown in a couple of images of Helsinki as well.

In the end, I’ll have a few afterthoughts and clarifications of my own.

Travelogue: DISCOVERING BELARUS

by Stanislav Sokolov (Nemo)

This article is a series of observations from my recent week-long trip to Minsk and surroundings, and will be comprised of a few sketched notes around some general topic that I observed, which together will hopefully help create a picture of Belorussia. It was the first time I visited Belorussia – I haven’t been there even while living in USSR and was curious as to how the land and the people fared.

Interestingly, my trip went through Finland – another country that I visited for the first time. Despite the turbulent history of the 20th century, Finns still keep the history of their federative association with the Russian Empire, keep the monuments and stellas, and do not re-write history as is the want in the other Western European countries.

Only a few Western European countries have diplomatic relation with Belorussia, and Finland is one of them. I could have applied for Belorussian visa in Finland, but I chose another venue, contacting consular services at the Minsk airport, submitting all the paperwork there beforehand, and getting my visa on arrival.

Roads and transportation

The first thing that meets you when driving from Minsk airport is the road. One of an exceptionally high quality. And this high standard of quality roads persists not only in the capital itself, but also outside – in the surrounding towns that I travelled to. Another thing that Belorussia is famous for, is its railroad network. You can set clock by departures and arrivals, and travelling by rail is a real pleasure. There are modern regional trains and well as trains with cars from the Soviet period, though maintained with care. Belorussia is the only country of the former USSR that has not squandered its Soviet heritage, but built on it and multiplied it.

An interesting detail: all the man-hole covers in the streets are new and, moreover, painted to prevent them from rusting. In Lithiania, for example, all manhole covers are from 70s-80s and are thoroughly worn-out. Or take the traffic lights… The vast majority of them are of a modern bright LED kind, with the central circle showing the number of seconds until the light shifts from red to green or back, allowing the drivers to plan their acceleration and breaking. All are small details, but quite telling.

Industry and agriculture

The second thing you notice are the fields, ploughed and planted. The land is not left idle and in desolation, as is the case in the neighbouring Lithuania, but is serving the country’s needs as well as producing enough surplus for export. The industrial complex is also intact and fully functional. A small fragment of an impression: my hotel room was equipped with flat-panel TV and a Peltier element mini-bar. This is expected of any world hotel with a name to itself. But while in most countries the TV and the mini-bar would have been made in China or Malaysia, here they were Made in Belarus. I checked. The TV model, by the way, is called Horizont – a mark that I’ve known since the Soviet times. I am quite particular when the picture quality is concerned, and I would give that TV quite high marks.

Minsk

Coming to Minsk, I felt an acute sense of deja-vu, like I’ve already been there. And then I realised that I felt myself like in Moscow of my youth, back in the 80s. It was the combination of many factors. People speaking Russian in the kind of ‘a’-sounding dialect typical of Moscow (I’ll come back to the language later). The vast expanses – wide roads, wide pavements, distance between blocks that can be up to 100 meters. In Western Europe I became accustomed to the compact, overcrowded building plan, and did not realise what I was missing of the old days. Then there is a feeling of security and stability – something that you never feel now days in a big city. I walked around Minsk by night and all was quite and orderly. And finally, the architecture was also reminding me of the centre of Moscow.

That’s not a coincidence, by the way. Belorussia got the brunt of the first hit from the German Nazis. Everything was wiped out. Of the whole historic Minsk, all that remains are a dozen houses in the Trinity Neighbourhood. The rest of Minsk was razed to the ground by the Germans. After the War, it was rebuilt in the neo-Classical style that you see today.

Today, the city of Minsk is getting a lot of modern buildings – you can see a lot of construction sites a little bit off from the centre. The apartments can either be bought privately (with loan level, comparable to most Western European countries) or with state subsidy. Besides, Minsk is expanding it’s Metro system with the 3rd line being built now.

Another characteristic feature of Minsk (as well as other towns of Belorussia) is their cleanliness. You won’t see any litter in the streets – not a scrap of paper, not a cigarette stub. And the reason for this lies not only in the nightly cleaning/washing of the streets. It is primarily in the mindset of the people. As one of the locals told me: you wouldn’t throw litter around your house, so why would you around your city? I think that is an important, fundamental feeling when you know that the land you live on is yours too, and not just some abstract state.

Shops and food

Whichever shop you come into, the assortment and quality of food is impressive. In my conversations with the locals, I got to know that the state owns only about 20% of the stores, while the rest is private business. The shelves are full of local produce, with a few imports. Below is an exhibition window of a bakery shop Karavai – a must-stop for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Eating out is also a pleasure – there are a lot of places to choose from, catering to all kinds of tastes. I found one restaurant, serving delicious selections of Russian “varenniki” and “pelmeni” – stretching it a bit, you can call that a kind of pasta. The place is called Gurman, and though it is a walking distance from some of the tourist points of interest in Minsk, it is frequented by the locals.

Language

Language is both a big and a small issue, depending on how you look upon in. As we’ve seen on the example of Ukraine, language (or an artificial separation of dialects into languages) can be used divide people and start wars.

Simply put, everywhere I went, everyone was speaking Russian. And, moreover, the type of speech typical for Moscow, with the predominant “a” sound where “o” would be written. (Moskva becomes Maskva, Belorussia becomes Belarusia). It is written Belorussian that makes one pause. Jokingly, people told me that they write with all the grammatical and pronunciation errors one can make in Russian. Or What You Hear Is What You Write. Basically that’s the same first step in making a dialect into a language, that was also taken in Malorossia/Galicia in 1800s, leading to Ukrainian.

Then, there is a more complex perspective. There is an official Belorussian language, which no one speaks. I only heard it once at the railway station. I was quite amusing – at first I thought they were announcing all the trains twice in Russian, and only after having listened closely, I noticed some subtle differences. A taxi driver, to my question of how widespread the official Belorussian was, told me that he hears it approximately once a year from some of the more radically-mooded youths. And that people don’t pay much attention to it. Maybe they should?

And then there is an even more troubling development. Take a look at the route of bus #1 that goes along the central avenue of Minsk:

Minsk Bus 1

At first glance, nothing untoward – names in Cyrillic for the locals and in Latin for the guests of the capital. Then you take a closer look. That’s not simply translations of the names. That’s essentially a Latinisation of them, along with Czech-looking umlaut characters of “č” and “š”. Let’s remember that attempts to Latinise Russian language were ongoing for several centuries. This may be yet another vector of attack on the Slavic roots.

Moreover, the names, which are basically lifted from Ukrainian – as I wrote above, I did not hear a single person call them that. Two examples: Independence Avenue in Ukrainian (and official Belorussian) is “Praspiekt Niezaliežnasci”, while in Russian it’s “Prospekt Nezavisimosti” (“independence” from what? History? Roots?); The Victory Square in Ukrainian/Belorussian is “Plošča Pieramohi”, while in Russian it is “Ploshad’ Pobedy”.

Man Is A Fool

Man is a fool,
When it’s hot, he wants it cool,
When it’s cool, he wants it hot,
He always wants what he has not

I already mentioned the sense of security and stability that I felt in Belorussia. What I found peculiar, is the kind of grumbling from the locals, aimed at this stability “oh, yeah, we have STABILITY, but you are luckier being there in Europe”.

Another point of discontent comes from a kind of inferiority complex, comparing themselves to how much better it is in Europe, while saying that Belorussia only tries to catch-up. One example: I asked in one of the taxis that I rode, if I can pay with Visa card. The reply was along the lines of “yes, but the connection is slow and patchy, we try to make it appear like in Europe at stop when the appearances are satisfied, without bothering about functionality”. Well, payment went through very well. And never mind that in Germany, when calling for a taxi, you need to say in advance that you want to pay with VISA, or you may get a car, which is not equipped with a terminal.

One manifestation of such expectation that everything is better on the other side, was a song/rap that I heard on one of the radio stations – something about dreaming of Jamaica, but only having “Minsk sea” to do diving in. “Minsk sea” being a somewhat bitter, self-derisive joke. Seemingly quite an innocent one, but setting a subconscious undercurrent of discontent in the youth.

Let us hope that such undercurrents would no be nurtured by the outside forces into the kind of tsunami that finally destroyed Ukraine in 2014.

LADA’S AFTERTHOUGHTS

I loved that last bit and the verse about a man being a fool. This is so applicable to Belarus, and some time ago it was also applicable to Russia. Not so much any more due to the events of the past several years, which caused Russians to awaken and grow up in a hurry.

Let me explain why some (and I emphasize that it’s only some) Belorussians don’t value what they have, but instead think the grass is greener somewhere else.

This was the attitude I recall from the Soviet days, albeit, as I said, Russians managed to grow out of it. This attitude, which I personally never had, was born of entitlement widespread during the later Soviet Union days. The life was so stable, so quiet and so secure that some thought their life wasn’t worth anything. Somewhere in the West they had excitement, adventure and high life. Soviet people, being too sheltered and isolated, didn’t understand that everything had a flip side. The flip side of high life is poverty and drudgery; adventure and excitement may mean danger to your life and the danger to the very existence of your country and culture. But man is a fool and the grass is always greener far and away for those who lack wisdom. Sometimes the grass really is greener elsewhere, but it always comes with strings attached and it’s always a trade-off, which, in the final analysis, you may not want.

In most other post-Soviet republics they already got it due to many tough lessons they had to learn in the past 25 odd years. The reason Belorussians still don’t know how to count their blessings is because they continue being sheltered by the ‘dictator Lukashenko’s’ regime.

In reality, just like Kazakhstan, Belarus is what I call a stewardship, not a dictatorship. The steward in charge takes care of his country as if it was his own domain and family, with great care and attention to detail, security and preservation of culture and industry. Like ‘big daddy’ he may be overbearing. He does everything to ensure a smooth sailing and a lack of shocks to his domain and people in his care. This results in some immature citizens feeling like rebellious teenagers (which is what such people really are, having never grown up).

They long to break out of the mold and experience something that the tough steward’s careful management doesn’t allow them to experience: turmoil, crisis and ups and downs, which they interpret as adventure, sparkle and excitement. Such attitude, when everything’s given to someone on a platter and therefore is not appreciated, is in some way akin to that of a spoiled rich brat.

This is a major downside of a sheltered existence and of any country functioning as a stewardship. A very similar situation developed in the late USSR, when the young generation took what they had for granted and didn’t value it; and this in part precipitated the USSR collapse. The shocks of the past 25 years took care of that in Russia as the Russian population quickly matured. It helped to have Putin and his team in power.

On the other hand, Ukrainians took their own country for granted so much and for so long that they had a bloody 2014 coup, resulting in total collapse. Now they don’t take anything for granted not knowing what tomorrow will bring, and many wish the old, good Yanukovich were back. Too late: the country is on its way to disintegration.

Belorussians haven’t had any major shocks and setbacks; therefore, they are somewhat behind in their maturing process. Some signals coming from Belarus are worrisome, but so far so good. Lukashenko is the right steward for the delicate job.
