We live in an era of the previously hidden becoming apparent, when the TRUTH finds a way to those who want to see and hear it, no matter how well someone it trying to conceal it. The modern listening techniques and the Internet are so advanced that they often become the great equalizers of our time. Yes, NSA may be wiretapping the entire world. But then we also have Snowden. Yes, US, Nuland, US Kiev ambassador, and the other world bandits may have been planning to keep their being behind the maidan and violent coup in Kiev secret, but then someone wiretapped their conversation discussing who to put in charge of Ukraine, and explaining how US really feels about the EU (the infamous f*** EU remark). Yes, EU may have been attempting to publicly deny the Kiev maidan violence and the mysterious snipers, but the wiretapped conversation between Ashland and the Estonian politician made them red-faced. Or let’s take the brilliant wiretapping of the phone talk by Yulia Tymoshenko in which she revealed how much she wanted to nuke Donbass and kill all Russians.
Ever since such embarrassing leaks had occurred, everyone in Ukraine, US and EU is quite tight-lipped about their plans.
But the Russian journalist and prankster with a purpose Vladimir Krasnov found another way to reveal the truth and to make them red-faced.
Krasnov seems to be an equal opportunity prankster. He first became famous when he called the president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and introducing himself as a son of the ousted Ukraine president Yanukovich, asked for political asylum for his family. In the course of the conversation the ‘Yanukovich’s son’ said that they still had one of the golden batons (a type of Russian bread) and it will be their present to Lukashenko for his hospitality. When Yanukovich had to escape from Ukraine, the maidan mobs went to his mansion to loot it. One of their famous finds inside the mansion were a large number of the solid golden batons. I listened to this prank call on YT and it was truly hilarious. Lukashenko bought it hook, line and sinker. If Krasnov wanted to find out how Lukashenko, that sly fox, really felt about what happened in Ukraine, he got his answer as Lukashenko remarked that the coup and the new Kiev power were illegitimate. The funniest part was that an unidentified intelligence service or hackers turned out to be listening in on that prank call, and thinking it was legit, made it public by posting it on YouTube BEFORE the prankster himself got the chance to do so.
Krasnov later made equally successful calls to the Kiev junta, finding out some useful and interesting details. Below are some of his latest achievements. At the bottom, you will also find a damning admission by oligarch Kolomoysky about MH17.

World Class Prank #1
US General admits American help to Ukraine in a prank call
Link to article: RT.com
Prankster Vladimir Krasnov and unsuspecting US Brig. Gen. Kevin McNeely discussed the problems concerning the Ukraine crisis and the possibility of military and financial aid to Ukraine, LifeNews reports. Krasnov asked about Ukrainian aid requests. According to General McNeely the Pentagon may equip “four companies and one battalion headquarters” of National Guard.
“We have many requests …we’ve received, some of them completed, filled, some are close to be infilled. We have equipment right now that is setting …and customs waiting to be cleared …so it can be delivered,” the General said in the conversation.
Answering the question about American help to train Ukrainian troops the general said it was possible. Krasnov asked McNeely if the US can help Ukraine with lethal arms or money and the General’s answer was negative. The US can deliver arms to another country only if the President or Congress approves it, he said explaining that it is political request, not military request. The Pentagon does not send financial aid to other countries and can send Ukraine only equipment or military instructors, the General added.
Gen. Kevin McNeely is the director of European Partnership Task Force, US European Command, Germany. He performs strategic planning and commands operational cooperation.
Krasnov, also known as Vovan, is famous for dozens of phone pranks to famous politicians and celebrities.
Video interview with Krasnov: US General NcNeely reveals military secrets to Russian prankster – with English Subs! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L56nkaJVeig&app=desktop
Video description: The video has two parts: A news item on the subject (with Eng Subs) and the recording of the conversation itself. Both have been cut down to get rid of boring parts, and to bring the total to less than 15 min.
Vladimir Krasnov AKA Vovan222 is famous for his prank calls, where he pretends to be someone important and makes outrageous demands, or gets his victim to divulge secrets.
He started off calling Russian soccer players and celebrities, went on to troll high-ranking government officials such the ministers of sport and culture, the head of the election commission, the head of nature protection agency, and then expanded to prank calling Ukrainian politicians, as well.
His most famous success in that area was calling Lukashenko, the president of Belarus, pretending to be the son of a deposed Ukrainian president Yanukovich, and successfully negotiating asylum. Even more hilarious is that the prank call was wiretapped by an unknown intelligence agency, and leaked before Vovan222 did it himself (he was holding out so he could make a second call with some outlandish requests):
Apart from simply trolling politicians, he has also called Ukraine’s Minister of Interior (Police) Avakov pretending to be a separatist leader asking for peace negotiations, and called Pushilin (head of the DPR at the time) pretending to be Avakov’s aide asking for the same – in an apparent attempt to get them to talk and stop the bloodshed. They did negotiate, but unsuccessfully:
In this story, he has managed to trick a very high-ranking US general into thinking he is Ukrainian minister Avakov, and ask some specific questions about the extent of US military aid. Nothing underhanded going on there, it seems, so that’s good – but he did learn that US is planning on sending instructors to Ukraine, of the exact extent of military aid previously approved, and that a secret meeting was going to happen on the 17th discussing the plans for long-term US military aid to Ukraine.
World Class Prank #2
Kolomoysky: Sorry about the MH17 – but it was a trifle – ENG SUBS
I can confirm – on the video is really the infamous oligarch Kolomoysky! Kolomoysky is considered the racketeer #1 in Ukraine. He has equipped and trained his own private army, which he is using to assert his power over Dnepropetrovsk and to suppress any dissent in this large city, treating it as his fiefdom.
It is true that by keeping Dnepropetrovsk under his control he is currently able to avoid any bloodshed and riots in the city. Simpleton locals seem to be grateful to him for that, however, no one really knows how much of this gratitude is based on Kolomoysky’s own propaganda touting him as a savior. As a well-known Ukraine lawyer and political activist Tatiana Montyan said, the sheeple think life is good when they are being fed today, not knowing that tomorrow they will be slaughtered. Link.
Kolomoysky is one of the 3 or 4 richest and most influential people in today’s Ukraine. He has equipped and trained some of the most vicious National Guard battalions, consisting of nazis and felons let out of jails. These are the battalions infamous for pounding Donbass and executing people.
There is a clandestine battle going on between Kolomoysky and Poroshenko (nominally the president installed by the US, but without sufficient support in the country). While Poroshenko is holding the official position, Kolomoysky is trying to ‘annex’ more regions, including Odessa, Zaporozhie, Kherson and parts of Donbass by installing there his own people. His secret tentacles spread far and wide, including to various organizations and Kiev’s political structures.
The admission of MH17 downing by Ukraine forces ‘by mistake’ from Kolomoysky is very damning. Incidentally, it was the Dnepropetrovsk (Kolomoysky’s domain) air traffic control that led MH17 flight into the war zone by making it deviate from its normal course. The Spanish air traffic controller working out of Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, who tweeted about his suspicions after the MH17 downing, had disappeared along with his Tweeter account.
Lada Ray Interview About Ukraine and Russia With Plane Truth:
The Road to Moscow Goes Through Kiev
Listen to my interview with the Time Monk Radio‘s show, The Plane Truth. It includes the analysis of the events in Ukraine; Russia, US and EU’s roles and aims; Ukraine and Russia’s history and how Ukraine became the artificial entity that it is today. Around 40:00 we talk about striking geopolitical similarities between Georgia war/Beijing Olympics and Ukraine coup/Sochi Olympics. later in the show we discuss the long-ranging predictions for Ukraine, Russia, US, EU, and more!
“Every country deserves its government” is a quote attributed to Frederich Nietzsche. How true it is looking at today’s Ukraine.
And here is another thought: “A lot of what is currently happening is not a part of the initial script intended for Ukraine. When you play with fire, be prepared for it to get out of control.” Lada Ray

Russia’s role in Ukraine
So, the billion dollar question is: what is Russia’s role in all this? Russia has been extremely, and surprisingly to some, quiet and restrained on the Ukraine issue. Russia had stressed a few times that EU and US interference is unacceptable. Putin also remarked that joining the EU association agreement is Ukraine’s sovereign decision that has nothing to do with Russia. Compare that with constant interferences by the EU and US in internal affairs of sovereign Ukraine.
Russia also said firmly that should Ukraine sign a free trade agreement with the EU, Russia would cancel its own free trade deal with Ukraine to protect its industry. The moment it has been said, the howling that Russia is putting pressure on poor, defenceless Ukraine, from both sides of the Atlantic became so deafening as if Russia just invaded USA and EU combined.

A bit of history
I have to interrupt my planned #SochiOlympics post on Lada Ray Blog, which will be posted soon, due to the fresh wave of madness enveloping #Ukraine.
I was born in Moscow to a Russian father and Ukrainian mother. In Russia and USSR, mixed marriages were absolutely normal and happened all the time. We all thought we were a part of one great Russian culture – and therefore, there was nothing to divide and nothing to fight about, there was no score to keep… Read the rest of this entry
