April 10, 2017: Odessa celebrates 73 Anniversary of Liberation

April 10th is widely celebrated in Odessa as “Den’ Osvobozhdenia” – “the Day of Liberation.” In reality May 9 (Victory Day) is more widely celebrated. But at one point, after Ukraine separated from Russia and began its slide towards rabid Russophobia and fascism, holidays such as February 23 (Soviet Army Day) and April 10 became the defiance outlets of sorts, gathering huge crowds in the absence of any other legal means of protest.

On April 10, 1944, Soviet Army liberated Odessa from the Romanian-German Nazi occupation lasting 30 months. Before that, the city endured an excruciating battle and long blockade perpetrated by 11 joint Romanian and German divisions. Only 4 Soviet divisions, consisting mainly of marines, sailors and volunteers, many of them poorly trained and hardly armed, managed to withstand the aggressors’ attacks for months. After the city surrendered and the Romanian occupation began, thousands of guerrillas continued resistance, using the catacombs labyrinth as their shelter.

The famous Odessa catacombs run under the entire city. The reason Romanian army was so active in Odessa was simple – greed. Hitler promised Odessa together with entire Odessa Oblast, as well as other Black Sea territories, as the grand prize to Romania, in exchange for participating in the attack on the USSR.

Today Romania still licks its lips at Odessa, Pridnestrovie and Moldova. I actually can’t stop being amazed at the ungratefulness of Romanians. If not for Russia, Romania, formed only in 19th century, would not exist. Read the whole story in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

Odessans are blessed with very good memory. As they say in Russia (I mean Russia in a broad sense, including Odessa, of course): ‘No one’s forgotten and nothing is forgotten.’

FLASHBACK: THIS WAS ODESSA ONLY 3 SHORT YEARS AGO!

The video below is from April 10, 2014, 70th Anniversary of Liberation. Let’s recall that the Kiev coup already took place (February 2014) and Kiev junta, supported and enabled by the West, was already established in Ukraine. On March 16, 2014 the Crimean referendum took place where people voted to become a part of Russia. Donbass was preparing for its own referendum. Odessa itself had a permanent peaceful protest tent city on Kulikovo Polie, with vast majority of Odessans supporting federalization or secession. The May 2 Kulikovo Polie Massacre didn’t happen yet – it would scar Odessa forever.

Note the enormous sea of people of all ages at the April 10, 2014 march. This was already during Kiev junta, but at the time the REAL Odesssans still felt at home in their beloved city. Ukro-nazis would swarm in later, making Odessans prisoners in their own backyard.

Also notice the kinds of flags carried by the marchers: Soviet flags, WWII Red Victory Banners, three types of Russian flags (incl. Official Russian Tricolor, Georgievsky Flags, and old-style black-gold-white flags), Russian and Soviet Navy flags, and Odessa flags with crest (red-white-yellow with anchor). Not a single blue and yellow Ukrainian flag! People chant: ‘Fascism won’t pass’ “Odessa Hero City’ ‘Out of Odessa, Bandera devils’ and Donbass, we are with you.’ And note the giant Russian flag at 4:50.

This video, which is very hard to ignore, tells us a very eloquent truth of how the people of Odessa really feel about Russia, Ukraine and their place in this world.

At the time, Odessans and many others all over Ukraine still hoped that peaceful protests could lead to change, and that ukro-nazi junta supported from abroad could be reasoned with. Only 20 odd days later the unarmed peaceful protesters at the Kulikovo Polie tent city would be ambushed by hordes of ukro-nazi militants. Thousands of well-trained and armed with bats and molotov cocktails militants would arrive from central and western Ukraine. The attackers would burn dozens of people alive inside the historic House of the Unions on Kulikovo Polie. Those who tried to escape would be killed on the spot. Many innocent bystanders would be burned and killed together with protesters.

The supposed investigation into the crimes committed on May 2, 2014 never revealed any true facts, nor anyone was placed under arrest, despite many witness testimonies, videos and photos of perpetrators. Independent investigations have established that the commander of the ukro-nazi attackers was Andriy Parubiy, current Speaker of the Ukraine Rada (parliament). And the West, as always, looks the other way.

For full details of the May 2 tragedy and more, see my May 2, 2016 Odessa Report: Under Foreign and Nazi Occupation.

Also, for telling contemporary realities, intel, analysis and predictions for Odessa, Moldova, Pridnestrovie and northern Black Sea, read EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

Also see my 2013 articles with lots of Odessa pics (these are pre-Kiev junta, it’s all positive and nice, but you’ll see that I’ve already had a premonition of things to come):

After May 2 massacre Odessa was in shock, but this city is nothing if not resilient. Despite terror, Odessans continued coming out to have their voices heard.

This is Odessa on April 10, 2017. Many people are scared, but some still come to the sacred spot, the Eternal Flame at the Alley of Slava (translated more or less as Glory). On the video below, I’d like you to notice a few things:

1. How nice the Alley is. I remember it as a beautiful spot, with a wonderful panoramic view of the Black Sea and surrounded by an old, peaceful park.

2. Most people are older because it’s very dangerous for those who are young and working to show their faces at such event.

3. People sing Russian songs, such as Katyusha and Sacred War. They chant: ‘Out of Odessa, Bandera devils,’ ‘Odessa – the Hero City,’ “Donbass we are with you,’ ‘Fascism won’t pass.’ But they are forbidden from carrying any symbols, such as Victory Banner or Georgievskaya Lenta.

4. There are paid ukro-nazi militants acting as provocateurs all over the place. Their goal is to start fights, to provoke people and police. Police, thankfully, has been acting professionally and several ukro-nazis were detained.

5. At one point an ukro-nazi provocateur who’s sticking his camera into people’s faces asks repeatedly, ‘Who does Crimea belong to?’ People try to ignore him, but he won’t leave. Finally one brave woman says, ‘To Russia, of course.’

At one point during the event (not on this video) ukro-nazis were chanting, “Bandera will come and restore order,” and “Kill the Russians.” (Stepan Bandera: Hitler collaborator, ukro-nazi ideologist, who’s dead since 1940s.) In other words, these are just your regular fascist terrorists supported, as usual, by Western governments.

6. Tensions are at all time highs. The explosion is coming. If anyone for a moment thought that Ukraine could survive indefinitely as one state ruled by oligarch, ukro-nazi and foreign interests, think again. It won’t happen – it’s only a matter of time.

7. Also notice the marked difference: Odessans are dressed colorfully, while ukro-nazis are all dressed in black (sometimes, black and red).

Video: Odessa, April 10, 2017

8. Last but not least, notice that ukro-nazis are EXCLUSIVELY very young people. Remember this detail, it is very important and symptomatic of what is happening around the world! I’ll explain what this means in one of the future webinars!

This is a cold and dangerous spring of 2016. At least in Ukraine it is. So much is going on that I’ve decided to publish this new UKRAINE report in two parts.

Part 1 addresses a number of crucial new events and important threats facing Ukraine. These are:

1 The shocking Elenovka tragedy – a clear proof of Kiev breaking Minsk-2 peace agreement.

2 Polish and Ukrainian war against Russian monuments and their own history.

3. Chernobyl-2 in the making: persistent dire warnings of possible new nuclear disaster in Ukraine!

Also in this report:

4. The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany.

5. What does Russia really want in Ukraine?

6. How Putin and Lavrov, through peaceful means and reason, outplayed Merkel and Hollande and why Poroshenko won’t be able to attack DNR and LNR.

7. A concise Lada Ray guide to Ukraine’s parts (See additional maps and complete explanation in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE.)

In addition:

8. Why the pristine Kherson Oblast I once knew is being turned into a disaster zone, being invaded by ISIS militants and the ‘right sector.’ More in the future Earth Shift Report: CRIMEAN AGENDA.

9. Worrying news from Odessa! City’s bracing for possible civil war on May 2 and May 9. The world’s eyes are on Odessa! Part 2 of this report, SPRING 2016 ODESSA REPORT, will put in perspective the dangerous events expected there.

10. Plus, a pre-announcement: upcoming surprise Earth Shift Report re. big changes in EU!

We are approaching May Holidays (RUS: Maiskie prazdniki) 

What is that? Maiskie prazdniki is the cumulative name for two holidays: May Day on May 1, which is celebrated as both the day of spring and nature and as the international day of worker solidarity, and May 9, or Victory Day, marking the end of WWII and the Russian victory. Both are very widely celebrated in the entire Russian World / post-Soviet space.

During this period the provocations and clashes in Ukraine are widely expected. Also expected are provocations in other post-Soviet and Eastern Europe countries.

Poland’s war against monuments to Soviet soldiers, those who died liberating Poland from fascism

Polish government is descending more and more into fascism. It has announced the dismantling of something like 500 monuments to Russian soldiers, who liberated Poland during WWII. Hundreds of thousands of Russian and other Soviet soldiers who gave their lives for Poland, had been buried on Polish land. In the past several years vandals desecrated many Russian burial sites and Polish authorities dismantled many Russian monuments. In fact, those local mayors who resist dismantling monuments experience threats from the government and Polish nationalists.

It has to be noted that some simple Poles have been writing to the Russian Foreign Ministry with apologies for the actions of the Polish vandals destroying the Russian soldiers’ graves all over the country and the Polish government destroying monuments. Some try to restore and protect them. I’ll refrain from posting the graphic images here, but you can find them online, or search for videos on YT.

In this post I wasn’t planning on invoking the obvious word: karma. But there will be consequences for such actions. I’m not talking about any ‘Russian vengeance’ here. Not at all. I am talking about divine justice.

Incidentally, I warned about Poland’s descent into madness, isolation and hatred since 2014. Back then, a Polish woman indignantly wrote to me that I had no idea what I was talking about, that Poland would never, blah, blah… And, oh, look: just a couple of years later – as predicted!

Their biggest fear is the United Eurasia: the plan to keep Europe and Russia separate 

The campaign of dismantling Russian monuments and other anti-Russian hysteria in Poland is accompanied with the usual BS about ‘Russian occupation.’

This convenient mantra was slapped together by the Transatlantic handlers for their current Eastern Europe vassals back in the 1960s-1980s. At that time it was used to tear as many countries as possible away from the USSR. Today it serves the purpose of artificially keeping the people of Eastern Europe and Russia apart. By stoking a fire wall of animosity between Russia and EU’s Eastern Europe members, the puppet masters are able to keep the Iron Curtain between Western Europe and Russia alive and well.

This is all a part of the same global game of weakening and isolating Russia from the rest of Europe. The creators of this lie are the same as the creators of anti-Russian sanctions and the ‘subversion’ of Ukraine. They will do anything to keep Russia and Europe apart. The thing they fear most is the re-unification of Eurasia into one continuous cooperative and mutually beneficial space – as it historically was and as it’s supposed to be.

In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT I talk at length about Stratfor Baltic-Black Sea Plan and how Poland is being used to erect a new Iron Curtain between EU and Russia.

Please read ESR8 for a full picture, tying together the worrying events in Poland, Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, the Balkans and Caucasus. Nothing that happens in those convoluted for the Westerners parts, happens by accident!

The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany

The destruction of Ukraine on all levels continues. A big part of it is the destruction of human memory, re-writing of the genetic code and own history. As Ukraine descends into fascist madness, it is simultaneously ‘decommunizing.’

Hmm… we’ve seen this before in one nice European country, called Germany. The outcome of the German Nazis’ all-consuming thirst for denial and destruction of others is well-known: it caused the near destruction of Germany itself.

It’s amazing to me how short and selective human memory is! I hear everywhere – even heard it a couple of times from my own readers – that Hitler was a good guy and that it was UK and US that made him take the slippery road to destruction. Frankly, I have very little patience with people like that, so I’ll just say it this once.

One: these are the kind of people who think they are independent thinkers because they read this in some obscure book and because they think it’s unconventional to think this way. In reality, they simply regurgitate someone’s hidden agenda.

Two: Yes, it is true that Hitler and Germany were manipulated into starting World War II. Simultaneously, they were pumped up with credits and technology by UK and US. The ultimate goal of this scheme was to unleash Hitler on Russia/USSR in order to destroy the only country that always stood, and continues standing, in the way of Anglo-American globalist expansion and the complete takeover of the world. Along the way, they wanted to destroy another rival – Germany itself.

However, the whole point of being a national leader is to be smart enough to see the pitfalls and traps prepared for you and your country. I am leaving aside Hitler’s hideous national-fascist Nazi ideology, which is partially explainable by Germany’s defeat in WWI. But only just. Again, who was forcing Germany to BEGIN WWI? Yes, they were manipulated by the same forces. But where was the wisdom and common sense?

There, obviously, was none. Incidentally, a German philosopher said: ‘Every country deserves its government.’ Germans ELECTED Hitler and watched indifferently as he prosecuted those who had a different opinion inside the country. The people of Germany also watched and participated(!) as Hitler invaded and looted country after country. Incidentally, the same was true for Japan, which invaded and brutally killed millions of Chinese, Mongols and other Asians.

IF national leadership and the people of Germany allowed themselves to succumb to outside manipulation, if they knowingly benefited from the tragedy and suffering of millions of others, if they CHOSE to purposefully and willingly participate in inflicting terrible destruction on the peaceful people all over the globe – they are responsible and there is nothing that can change that! Hitler and all those who were a part of the German/Japanese/Romanian aggression against other countries are war criminals and their crimes can never be forgotten, unless humans want a repeat of 1914, 1939 and 1941.

Some may say there was no choice. There always is a choice! Some Germans went to concentration camps or were killed because they spoke up. Others became anti-fascists and resistance partisans, or surrendered to Russian troops because they refused to participate in the massacre of Russians, Soviets and Europeans.

Three: I just have one simple number for you – 27 million lives. This is what Hitler’s and Romanian aggression (in Odessa and Moldavia) cost Russia and the entire USSR. Primary losses were in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. Two members of my family died and more were wounded during the Great War of 1941-1945.

36 million Chinese were massacred by the Japanese aggressors during WWII period.

Incidentally, I have absolutely no problem with German people. Two of my best friends in school were Germans; I love Germany and German culture. Same goes for American, Polish, Japanese, or any other people anywhere on the globe.

It’s not about anyone’s culture or nationality – it’s about world view and civilizational choice. It’s also about one’s conscience.

That said, on this site we have zero tolerance for anyone who promotes Hitler or Nazis/fascists of any sort. Permanent ban will be implemented against anyone who posts such comments. See BLOG RULES on top bar.

What Russia really wants in Ukraine

Ukraine won’t be able to repeat the German fate, no matter how much Kiev ukro-nazis try, because Russia won’t let that happen. If Russia weren’t doing everything to keep Ukraine from descending into ultimate madness and complete self-destruction, if Russia played by the same devious rules as the West, by now we would see the entire territory of Ukraine in the midst of civil war. The loss of life, coupled with the destruction of most infrastructure, would be much more widespread.

As it stands, Ukraine is doing an excellent job of imploding all by itself, even when others try hard to cushion the fall.

I wrote in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT that the West has no idea how many means of secret influence, intel gathering and sabotage Russia does possess in Odessa. The same exact thing is true for all of Ukraine. The reason Russia isn’t using these means is one and only: Russia is trying to preserve the lives, infrastructure and psyche of Ukrainians.

Russia is doing everything humanly possible to gently neutralize the US plan: turning one part of the Russian people against another part of the Russian people.

The West is using Ukraine as a puppet and a disposable tool to manipulate and weaken Russia.

Meanwhile, Russia’s goal is to keep Ukraine as intact as possible in the midst of self-inflicted destructive psychosis, activated and supported by foreign entities. Feel the crucial difference!

As I predicted back in 2014: Russia continues carefully and patiently remolding the situation in Ukraine, which eventually will lead to Ukraine’s turnaround. To do that, Russia is absolutely correctly treating Ukraine with kid gloves, even when it doesn’t deserve them.

Russia is Ukraine’s only hope for survival. Russia treats Ukraine and Ukrainians with kindness and forgiveness of a mother or father, who, despite the cruelty and bad behavior of a prodigal child, knows that one day that child will learn its lesson and return home. No one else needs or wants Ukraine, with all its problems.

Despite all difficulties, this, only correct, strategy is starting to bear fruit. Look at how different some European countries’ position is today, compared to 2014! Remember my 2014 predictions? More and more people in Ukraine and West will be awakening to the understanding of what’s going on; slowly, gradually, Ukraine will be turning back towards Russia and away from the West.

But the task ahead is truly monumental. After 25+ years of Soros/US/ukro-nazi brainwashing, coupled with oligarchic infestation and socio-economic disaster, some younger Ukrainians had forgotten who they were, succumbing to anti-Russian propaganda. It will be very hard, but possible, to rehabilitate this lost generation.

As it is, Ukraine had lost its way 25 years ago and it must go through this cleansing process. When health has been neglected for so long, the cleansing never looks pretty. There is no way of going forward without getting rid of old problems first.

But on the surface, it seems the opposite to my hopeful forecast is taking place. Today’s situation in Ukraine resembles the expression ‘it’s darkest before the dawn.’

Chernobyl 2: New nuclear disaster in the making!

On the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy, the loud expert warnings sound that the remaining functioning Ukrainian nuclear stations are a disaster waiting to happen. They have begun replacing the compatible Russian nuclear fuel with American Westinghouse fuel, which proved to be incompatible. This fuel was previously rejected by other Russian-built nuclear stations, for example, in Slovakia and in Ukraine itself.

Kiev’s severing ties with Russia means that stations are not being properly maintained and Russian-made parts are not replaced on time. All four stations are getting old, approaching a point of no return. Using the incompatible Westinghouse parts may lead to a catastrophe.

The biggest worry is the reckless exploitation schedule. Due to power shortages after Ukraine refused to maintain the unified power grid with Russia, operators are forced to constantly speed up reactors to maximum capacity during peak hours. Such experiments led to Chernobyl catastrophe 30 years ago.

The Elenovka tragedy

Two days ago Kiev executed a targeted bombing against peaceful civilians. Six people were killed, including a pregnant woman, and scores wounded, in Elenovka village. These people were sitting in their cars near border control post between DNR and Ukraine, waiting in line to cross to the other side. Some of them were retirees forced to drive to Ukrainian side to get their pensions, others – on their way to visit families or tend to their fields stuck on the other side.

Because Kiev continues shutting down border crossings, more and more have to use the same crossing, resulting in long lines. People sometimes have to spend the night in their cars, waiting for their turn to cross. Just before the shelling, locals reported hearing a Ukrainian drone, and shortly after, the Minsk-agreement banned heavy Ukrainian artillery began shelling cars with sleeping people inside.

Link to video with the aftermath of the Elenovka tragedy. Warning! It’s very graphic!

In my recent post Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf? I said:

“If Kiev can’t attack directly, what can Ukraine do? Instead, they are attempting to provoke DNR and LNR. To accomplish that they continuously shell peaceful citizens and villages near frontline. The idea is to anger the republics so much that they lose their cool and begin retaliating, thus breaking Minsk 2 agreement. After that Kiev, US and EU get to blame DNR/LNR and, of course, Russia in violating cease-fire. If that should happen, Kiev and US will immediately demand new sanctions against Russia and attempt to vilify Russia and Putin yet again.

This is why DNR/LNR can’t respond to obvious provocations. The especial cruelty of the situation is in the fact that innocent people and animals suffer under shellings, with no recourse.”

This new provocation falls in line with Kiev tactics of trying to provoke DNR/LNR into retaliating. Poroshenko is desperate. He is being pressured by EU, and now even by US due the election year, to start fulfilling Minsk agreement’s demands. He can’t do that because his own Rada will tear him apart. His only choice is to re-start armed conflict in Donbass to delay Minsk-2 fulfillment. This is why provocations, targeting peaceful civilians, will continue.

My prediction is that the Elenovka tragedy won’t go as planned by Kiev. The plan to provoke DNR into retaliating is needed to distract Ukraine’s public from internal problems, to re-ignite animosity against Russia, to delay the implementation of Minsk 2, to blame the republics for breaking the truce, and to instigate renewed sanctions against Russia in the wake of EU gearing up for their removal. However, all this will backfire.

Instead, the brutal killing of innocents will serve as yet another clear international proof of Kiev breaking the Minsk agreements. This event will put yet another nail in the coffin of the Kiev junta and its support by the West (many more nails still required, but it’s a start). If not, then EU, US, Canada, IMF and NATO will publicly demonstrate to all that they condone the slaughter of innocent civilians. Before some crucial referendums and elections, and in view of recent EU and US criticisms, this won’t look good.

The revolt in the EU has already begun: French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU. Recently, the people of the Netherlands have voted ‘NO’ in a referendum on Ukraine’s EU association. These are the first harbingers of spring, more to come soon!

Ukraine’s war on monuments – war on its history and genetic memory

Scores and scores of Lenin monuments have been destroyed all over Ukraine. Let’s recall that ‘Ukraine’ as a state-like entity was first created by Lenin as part of the USSR. Before that, there was no country called Ukraine, not even an autonomy.

The destruction of Lenin and other monuments all over Ukraine is accompanied with the wholesale looting and re-sale of parts of these monuments. The video below shows how many such monuments were destroyed and how the enterprising ukro-nazis posted ads all over the internet to sell parts of ‘Illich.’ A whole bust of Lenin, painted in blue-yellow Ukrainian colors, slightly dented: $35,000. Another internet ad about a sale of parts of what used to be a Lenin monument: ‘own a piece of history: made out of rare material, the same used to build the Red Square Mausoleum, price depends on body part.’ Disgusted yet? I am.

If Ukraine’s president, parliament, oligarchs and army can sell the entire country, why can’t these small ‘wheelers-and-dealers’ sell pieces of their history and heritage?

Video (The map of destroyed monuments reads: ’25 monuments to Lenin were destroyed, 5 – attempted to be destroyed.’ By now, I’d say there are many more):

 

This is the newest one, which happened yesterday: in Kiev, Ukraine, Ukrainian fascists from ‘the right sector and ‘azov’ tried to destroy Soviet monument to Chekisti – RUS: чекисты. The monument is to the first Extraordinary Commission’s servicemen circa Russian Civil War and first years of the USSR (1918-1925). The abbreviation ‘чк’ (pronounced as ‘chekah’) was used to designate the counter-intelligence investigative unit, establish by Lenin in 1918. Later it would be called NKVD and after that, KGB.

Again, let’s remember that without Lenin the entity we today call Ukraine would NOT exist. The territory was slapped together of a number of different areas of South Russia (Yuzhnaya Rossia, aka, Novorossia) and Malorossia (below see my guide to the parts of Ukraine).

VIDEO: ukro-nazis attempting to destroy the granite monument, with hardly a dent.

While not everyone agrees with the methods used by the Chekisti, it is still a part of Russian, Soviet, and therefore Ukrainian, history. Its role was often viewed as controversial, but also necessary, for as long as the country was in the deathly fight for its very survival.

The right thing to do is to accept what happened as part of the country’s history. Only by making peace with the past can one move forward. If you deny your past, your history, you deny yourself. In this regard, Russians are wisely accepting all facets of their past, good and bad. This is why Russia today is where it is, and Ukraine is where it is. 

The Chekisti monument was built to last. As you see from this short clip, despite many days of efforts to destroy it, the monument was hardly dented. As one person commented: ‘The Chekisti are just looking down with disdain on these morons.’

The destruction of monuments in Poland and Ukraine are manifestations of the same darkness-induced craze that we are observing in Syria, where ISIS destroys priceless, UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as ancient Palmyra.

Normal people build. The urge to destroy what others have built is a manifestation of an overwhelming darkness experienced by the confused, undereducated and zombified minds, with violent tendencies.

Ukraine is a large country. A small minority of these thugs keeps in fear the majority. But I have to emphasize yet again that none of this would have been possible if these dregs of society were not supported and encouraged by the West! The West, especially and specifically the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Brussels, as well as their stooges in Poland and Lithuania, actively supported and nudged these crazies.

During Kiev maidan, Victoria Nuland and US ambassador Payet personally blackmailed Ukraine president Yanukovich and PM Azarov, threatening them with forced removal from power and personal harm, if the government tried to resist maidan violence and restore order. Similar pressure was put by the EU governments and politicians.

Under any normal circumstances and in any normal society such people would have been in jail, which would deter others. Instead, they were touted as heroes. The all-permissiveness always breads more violence.

The biggest criminals are those from the West who came to Ukraine with the expressed goal to generate violence, hatred and death.

Due to severe imbalance, which the world has experienced in the past 25 years since the collapse of the USSR, the weakened Russia was unable to fulfill her global balancing and stabilizing role. Large numbers of the world’s young people have succumbed to propaganda. This propaganda could be Western, emphasizing Russophobia. But it could be extremist Islamist just as well. It could also be fascist propaganda, stressing the resurgence of the popularity of Hitler and Nazi ideology of hatred and destruction. All these may have a different wrapper and flavor, but their essence is always the same: aggression, hatred, destruction and harm to others, while enriching yourself.

Putin for president and Azarov for PM of Ukraine

Since 2014, most Ukrainians lived in shock and fear. Some were zombified and confused. But the change is coming, the awakening is happening, slowly but surely.

In BLACK SEA GAMBIT I said that if a referendum to join Russia took place in Odessa today, 90% would have voted ‘YES.’ Very similar numbers would be true for the entire South and East. Even Kiev and sane parts of western Ukraine may surprise us.

Kiev just swapped the inept PM Yatsenyuk, who presided over the 2014-2015 destruction of Ukraine’s economy, for the equally inept PM Groysman, who is Poroshenko’s puppet. A poll conducted in Kiev showed that only 29% approved of Groysman as PM, while 58% wanted back Nikolay Azarov, who was PM under Yanukovich. Some now say that ‘Azarov was the best thing that happened to Ukraine in 25 years.’

An earlier poll conducted in Ukraine showed that 82% of Ukrainians wanted Putin as their president.

Renaming of streets, factories and cities – another maniacal epidemics sweeping Ukraine

As part of ‘decommunization,’ streets, factories and major enterprises are being renamed. The citizens are resisting it as much as they can. There are instances when the new name sounds suspiciously similar to the old one. Example: under pressure, a factory in Donetsk oblast (the part located on Ukraine side), was renamed from the ‘Illich Kombinat’ to… the ‘Illich Kombinat.’ Illich is Lenin’s patronymic and he was often called by this alternative name. ‘We renamed it after a worker of this factory, whose patronymic was also Illich,’ explained the locals.

They made an attempt to rename Odessa and call it ‘Kotsyubiyivsk’ (try not to break your tongue). Of course, if they succeeded, that alone would have caused Odessa to secede.

Wholesale destruction of Russian monuments

Under the guise of decommunization, ukro-nazis are destroying monuments to Russian scientists, writers, artists and also generals, who liberated Ukraine during WWII. In 2014, under the cover of the night, they removed the Odessa monument to General Chernyakhovsky, who commanded the army liberating Odessa. I bet Chernyakhovsky’s bust has already been sold to the highest bidder. Just like the ancient monuments of Syria, Ukrainian monuments, or their pieces, end up on the black market, often being sold to Western ‘collectors.’

Pushkin

Odessa, monument to Pushkin on Primorsky Boulevard

This greedy and senseless destruction of everything in sight is happening all over Ukraine. Recently, the famous monument to the 19th century writer Pushkin was under threat in Odessa. Ukro-nazis are continuously threatening to destroy the gorgeous monument to Katherine the Great, founder of Odessa. Obviously, aristocrat Pushkin and the Empress of Russia were ‘damn communists’ and had to be purged. Both monuments are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and were saved due to the widespread international indignation.

LADA’S GUIDE TO UKRAINE

Old map of Odessa

End of 19th century English map of South Russia and Malorossia (Little Russia)

Ukraine was slapped together out of several parts, of which the majority was, and continues being, completely Russian-speaking, despite all the brainwashing. This was done by Lenin in 1922 for several reasons: geopolitical, internal political, psychological and ideological. I explain in detail what those reasons were in ESR2: UKRAINE and ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS.

While we all were a part of one big Soviet Union, no one was bothered by it that much. People were prepared to tolerate being a part of Ukraine even after the breakup, as long as they were able to easily commute to Russia for better jobs, sell their stuff to Russia, and be a part of the Russian culture through TV, books and concerts. But now they are unable to do any of that: Russian TV, journalists, artists, writers, cultural icons and political figures have been banned in Ukraine.

I believe I’ve mentioned this in Black Sea Gambit: Kiev is so afraid of the truth that they have banned me and my blog, FuturisTrendcast! Ukrainians can’t read my blog directly, but of course, there are many methods to bypass the ban in a roundabout way.

As soon as these bans began happening, this is when everyone suddenly began remembering that in fact they were never supposed to be a part of Ukraine, that Kiev usurped power and that they really wanted to go back to their roots.

Parts of Russia that became parts of Ukraine in 1922 and later:

Donbass (spelled out as the Donets Basin –  RUS: Donetskiy Bassein) – presently Donetsk/DNR and Lugansk/LNR.

South Russia, basically consisting of the historic Tavria and Bessarabia. The Black Sea coast, including Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson. Pridnestrovie (breakaway Transnistria) and pars of Moldova are included. The famous Tavrian steppes stretch along Black Sea from Odessa to Kherson and into Crimea.

Crimea (aka, Tavrida) – now a part of Russia again.

True Russian territories, including the ancient Chernigov, Kharkov/ Slobozhanshina (the area which was part of the lands gifted by Empress to the South Russian Cossacks), Dnepropetrovsk and more – what is often referred to as  ‘Eastern Ukraine.’ Dnepropetrovsk, located next to Zaporozhie, is also a part of the traditionally Cossack territory.

Original Zaporozhie Cossacks territories – presently the industrial city of Zaporozhie and Zaporozhie Oblast. I talk at length and explain everything about the amazing, colorful culture of the South Russian Cossacks in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE. 

Everything I listed above is historically referred to as Novorossia (New Russia), although of course Russians (Russo-Arian Slavs) lived on these lands for millennia.

Present capital Kiev and poor, agricultural center and north of today’s Ukraine 1000+ years ago were called Kievan Rus, and 300-100 years ago – Malorossia.

Today’s Western Ukraine is correctly called Galitskaya Rus and Podkarpatskaya Rus. These are the lands of the Galician and Carpathian Rusins (RUS: Rusini; incorrect English: Ruthenians). During medieval times there was a pretty large Galitskaya Rus state there, which was invaded at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, who eventually destroyed it.

How Putin/Lavrov Outplayed Merkel, Hollande, Obama

& Why Poroshenko Cannot Restart Donbass War

In the midst of today’s gruesome Ukrainian landscape, there is something that has, perhaps, a more positive tone.

Donetsk warns of imminent Kiev attack on DNR and LNR

Donbass braces itself for the new offensive by Kiev. Eduard Basurin from DNR ministry of defence and the head of DNR, Alexander Zakharchenko, continue to warn that Kiev is amassing troops and hardware in order to attack both republics.

However, as I said previously, I simply do not see how they may be able to pull it off (read my analysis in Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf?

Additional analysis and predictions

The thing is that Poroshenko has to make certain noises to appease the radicals and ukro-nazis. But as far as real actions go, he really is tied up pretty tight. Besides, as we have determined previously, Ukraine is being slowly but surely ‘flushed down’ by the US and EU (as I predicted since 2014).

The Dutch referendum on Ukraine’s EU association sent a clear message. So did Biden’s advice to Kiev Rada to begin federalization process ASAP. So did yesterday’s French parliament’s vote to lift anti-Russian sanctions (French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU). And this is just the beginning!

But there is more:

The more information comes out about the atrocities and lies of the Kiev junta, the more EU citizens question the position of their governments. Europeans question more and more the propaganda that told them that Russia was bad, Kiev maidan was good and that EU did the right thing backing Kiev together with USA. The longer anti-Russian sanctions last, the more EU farmers, shippers and industrialists get impatient. Meanwhile some notice that while EU trade with Russia shrunk dangerously, US trade with Russia INCREASED! And that’s in the midst of sanctions! Slowly, US companies are taking over EU business with Russia.

More and more Europeans are realizing they were simply duped and the revolt is brewing.

Merkel, Hollande and other former advocates of anti-Russian sanctions now have no choice but to support Minsk-2 peace agreement at all cost, since the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions has been tied to its fulfillment. In a way, EU as a whole has cornered itself by imposing sanctions on Russia and tying them to Minsk-2 fulfillment.

Neither DNR/LNR nor Kiev are really planning to fulfill Minsk 2 in full. It is actually impossible to do so while this Kiev junta is in power. Poroshenko and his government can PRETEND to implement only certain points. The entire Minsk-2 in principle cannot be implemented until after the ukro-nazi Kiev junta is gone.

This signifies that:

1. What I said from the beginning of 2014: EU elites are inept and don’t understand at all what they are doing, which European citizens are finally beginning to grasp.

2. Merkel, Hollande and others will have to support Donbass truce at all cost. They are being watched by opposition and electorate. The alternative means they and/or their parties will lose the next election for sure. Recall my 2012 prediction about Hollande betraying the hopes of his electorate! As to Merkel, the recent 11% drop in her ratings will continue accelerating. All in all, her political career is finished. It’ll take time, but she’s on her way down.

3. EU supporting Poroshenko’s new offensive on DNR/LNR will give additional ammunition to eurosceptics and accelerate the breakup of the EU.

4. As I predicted in 2014, Putin and Lavrov were absolutely right not to antagonize Europe, continuing to patiently work with them throughout Ukraine crisis and despite their openly provocative, anti-Russian attitudes. This patience and lack of antagonism looks a little toothless to some. I had said that it was the only correct approach.

We’ve already been through this in 2008 with Georgia and several times during 2000s, when Ukraine shut off Russian gas to EU. They yell and scream, and stomp their feet. Then they calm down and recognize that Russia isn’t a monster and that, may be, just may be, they jumped the gun.

I know, I know. Putin, Lavrov, and Russia in general, are the only adults in the room and their patience is truly angelic. While Obama and US destabilize everything they get their hands on, Russian foreign policy is the only thing that keeps the world from plunging into a new global war.

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Odessa’s cold spring 2016: city and oblast are bracing for blood and violence on May 2 and May 9!

This spring is especially hard for Odessa. After Crimea and DNR/LNR, Odessa is the biggest symbol of resistance against the Kiev junta. May 2, 2016 is the 2nd anniversary of the terrible tragedy, when 48, or likely more, people were burned alive on Kulikovo Polie. Kiev and ukro-nazis, together with Saakashvili, are determined to make a bloodbath out of the May 2 and May 9 in Odessa. Thousands and thousands of trained ukro-nazis from ‘azov’ battalion and western Ukraine have descended on Odessa. Provocations are expected everywhere. Tensions are the highest since 2014. Basically, people are gearing up for civil war and fear the repeat of May 2 massacre.

What is happening can be big and is also a harbinger of important changes in Ukraine and around the Russian World.

On Monday, May 2,

I’ll publish part 2 of the UKRAINE report: The ODESSA Report!

Read it in conjunction with my timely ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT,

dedicated primarily to Odessa & Black Sea events and conspiracies!

Kherson Oblast is dying — and Crimean Agenda ESR

As I remember it growing up, Kherson once was a quiet sleepy hollow, complete with untouched, contemplative nature, robust agriculture and down to earth people.

Kherson is dying: it is experiencing a disastrous invasion of ukro-nazis and Islamists from ISIS, Turkey and Crimean Tatar Mejlis, which is recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia. The damage to the environment is terrible and the damage to the population is catastrophic.

Their ultimate goal is to squeeze out the native, Slavic population and replace it with Muslim transplants. It may sound crazy and bizarre, but it’s not so incredible if you look at the map and notice that Kherson Oblast borders Crimea to the south – the only land connection to the Crimean Peninsula.

Having lost Crimea, US, Turkey and Kiev have concocted a plan to destabilize it through Kherson. All this is a part of the bigger agenda to destabilize Russia by creating zones of instability all around Black and Caspian Seas. To those who plan all this, people’s lives don’t matter.

All this is the topic of the upcoming new Earth Shift Report

The Battle for Eurasia! CRIMEAN AGENDA

NEW Crimean agenda ESR10 6

It’s an explosive and eye-opening Earth Shift Report, crucial for understanding the Russian and global geopolitical situation. However, due to urgent May events surrounding Odessa, Russia and EU, I’ll be postponing it till further notice. Since Crimean – Kherson situation is still in development, CRIMEAN AGENDA will come a little later. Please stay tuned!

The present focus is on hot EU developments!

New, surprise Earth Shift Report coming your way!

I received a lot of questions from readers regarding TTIP, Brexit, the possibility of the breakup of the EU, the Dutch, German and French revolts, etc. Therefore, I am preparing a surprise Earth Shift Report in which I’ll address all that, and more!

Formal announcement coming! Stay tuned!

Canada Represents a Reservoir of Support for Ukrainian Nazis

Hi Lada: Just found a disturbing article on Canada & Ukraine Neo-Nazis. It covers a number of facts which were totally unknown to me. Needless to say, I am not impressed with the actions the Canadian gvt is taking in my name, and on behalf of Canadians!! The picture is now crystal clear.

Blessings! Johanna

Canada Represents a Reservoir of Support for Ukrainian Neo-Nazis
http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2015/04/10/canada-represents-reservoir-support-ukrainian-neo-nazis.html

Lada says:

Sadly, Canada has been one of the main sources of support for ukro-nazis, who in the 20th century were exclusively concentrated in western Ukraine (Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk, Rovno oblasts – usually referred to together as Galichina and Volin’).

Do you want to know where else the Ukrainian Bandera-nazis concentrated after WWII?

The answer is connected to the following questions. Why is Canada so hands-on about a country located half the world away? What’s in it for Canada?

We had discussed it in previous articles, but it’s worth repeating. There is a huge, and I mean huge, population of western Ukraine nazis in Canada. There is one in the USA, but much smaller, especially on per capita basis. For the small population of Canada, ukro-nazis constitute a significant percentage capable of influencing the country’s policies.

There are three main factors defining the interference of Canada in Ukraine:

1. Hitler allies – Bandera and Shukhevich followers from western Ukraine, who escaped from the Nuremberg Tribunal after their defeat in WWII, were given asylum in Canada. These mass murderers and their heirs settled down, bought land and became Canadian citizens. They had been planning their revenge on Russia ever since.

2. Canada’s elites are pro-US neocons and NWO supporters. They are working as one unit with the US; in fact, they are a department of the US government, thus turning Canada into USA’s 51st state.

US and Canada governments are happy to unleash ukro-nazis of Canada and Ukraine on the unsuspecting country, allowing them to fulfil their long-cherished revenge plans against Russia. The overriding goal of the US is to hurt Russia in any way possible and ukro-nazis are perfect for this role.

But who is using whom? US, Canada and ukro-nazis all use each other for their own ugly motives.

3. Canada shale gas interests hoped, a hope all but evaporated by now, that they could have a lucrative fracking business in Ukraine. This point is connected to Nos. 1 and 2. The shale gas and oil interests in Canada often belong to western Ukrainians, and they work closely with US shale gas interests and US government.

Why Is Canada’s PM Harper in a Rush to Visit Ukraine?

Canada’s Present and Future: Lada Ray Predictions

After Ukraine became ‘independent’ in 1991, a systematic resettlement of western Ukrainians from Volyn’ and Galichina began. They often settled, hugging lucrative real estate, in the most well-to-do cities of Ukraine, such as Odessa and Kiev. Another way of diluting the population with ukro-nazi ideas was to accept to colleges mostly western Ukrainians. The majority of Ukraine colleges are concentrated in Kiev, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov.

These young and aggressive people from western Ukraine became the foundation for the Kiev euro-maidan and citizen intimidation around the country. For example, half of the Russian-speaking Odessa student population is from Ukrainian-speaking western Ukraine. When I say Ukrainian-speaking, we are talking very mixed and far from the true literary Ukrainian.

It came to the point that Odessans regularly complain they get passed for college acceptance, despite better grades, in favor of someone from Galichina. Odessa is one of the most international cities in the world, where 70 different nationalities have always lived in peace and cooperation. Odessa and the surrounding areas have no concept of nationalism. Therefore, if locals complain, the problem has become overwhelming. Odessa has a very large student population and since last year, these ‘students’ from western Ukraine became the force that intimidated citizens and burned people alive on Kulikovo Polie. The western Ukraine student population of Kiev is even larger, which explains how so many warm bodies were found for the euro-maidan.

It has finally dawned on the residents of Kiev, Odessa and Kharkov that they are experiencing a full-scale invasion of people alien to them, with alien ideals, nourished and supported by alien forces from across the Atlantic. Locals had no chance against these younger, well-financed, well-trained and very aggressive specimens. Not only that, it is now becoming more and more clear that the invasion and takeover of Kiev and South and East of Ukraine was pre-meditated and well-planed.

Let me tell you something that has become clear to me some time ago: this was in the making for many years. The process began after Gorbachev came to power in 1985, but it picked up speed in the 1990s, and especially, 2000s. The 2004 ‘orange revolution’ was planned by the US and ‘orange revolutionaries’ Yushenko, Poroshenko and Timoshenko to be the dividing point between the past and the present. The peaceful ‘orange coup’ was organized to unseat what US perceived as Yanukovich’s pro-Russian regime. It must be what passes for pro-Russian in Ukraine.

However, they were unable to hold on to power; Yanukovich again won elections in 2008.

In fact, Yanukovich was never pro-Russian – he was pro-his-own-profit and pro-oligarch. His money and the money of his children that they managed to steal from the country was mostly held in the West. Same is true for his oligarch buddies. This made Yanukovich and oligarchs dependent, if not subservient, to the West. By threatening their assets, the West was able to manipulate them into signing the EU association agreement, until Yanukovich unexpectedly hit the back pedal.

There is no way around that conclusion, however you slice it. Yanukovich was never pro-Russian and he was just tolerated by Russians since in the land of the blind one-eyed man is king. But Yanukovich was pragmatic enough to see when he was going to lose no matter what.

He was the one who dragged the country towards EU association; he was the one who allowed further spread of ukro-nazi ideas and heroisation of Bandera and Shukhevich. The one thing he did right was refusing to sign the EU association agreement when he realised he was being set up. Yanukovich was groomed for the role of a fall guy when he rightly refused to sign the kind of agreement that would destroy the country’s economy. He was supposed to go down the same way as Gaddafi.

That’s when the signal for the years-in-the-making violent coup was given. Violence was necessary to get the population of the country into a state of fear and shock. The second reason for extreme violence and blatantly illegal transfer of power to the Kiev junta was needed to provoke Russia into interfering militarily, after which Russia would have been painted as aggressor, all of West’s economic relations with Russia would be cut off, Russia would be isolated not only by Western Europe, and especially Germany, but also from her usual allies, such as the BRICS, SCO and Customs Union (Belarus and Kazakhstan). Finally, an anti-Russian coalition could be built and WWIII against Russia could be declared. This was the plan, which depending on circumstances was supposed to be executed partially or fully.

There were a number of forces that worked in tight cooperation and coordination on this plan. Among them were: USA, Canada, Germany, Poland, Brussels EU elites, Lithuania and other Baltics, Romania; various Kiev stooges and direct CIA/State Dept agents, such as Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Klichko, Nalivaichenko; Ukraine oligarchs, such as Kolomoysky; and of course ukro-nazis, such as the ‘right sector’, ‘svoboda’ and others.

The plan never came to fruition due to the wise actions by Putin and Russia. My readers will recall that I predicted that Russia would under NO circumstances send troops to Ukraine, and instead, would slowly remold the situation in her favor using peaceful and quiet means. See PREDICTIONS. This is exactly what has been happening. I also wrote about that and more in:  Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014.

I understand how Johanna feels. Canada used to pride itself for being a country that kept its independent and neutral stance despite pressure from the big neighbor to the south. It’s disturbing to find out how deep they have their claws into Ukraine and how tightly they work with the US.

It’s natural for most people to give other humans the benefit of the doubt. Most of us don’t think like villains do; we want to believe in the goodness of mankind.

The problem is that when we see, hear and speak no evil, those evil forces we don’t want to see, do despicable things behind our backs. Bad things happen when good people are silent.

This is why the truth is the most important commodity at this time. All their hideous and ugly deeds have to come to light so people know how our reality is being manipulated.

We have known for a while that Ukrainians were subverted systematically through Soros history books, which re-wrote history for children right in front of their parents’ eyes. It was, and continues being done, through Western-trained and sponsored MSM. Another thing that has come to my attention is this: it turns out that Ukraine colleges and schools are full of teachers from Canada, the majority of whom are former western Ukrainians from the pro-Bandera stock. They arrive for one purpose only: to re-program the kids.

Has it worked? In some areas it has, temporarily and partially. However, people are awakening. Odessa and Kiev had multi-thousand rallies to protest against violence and to commemorate the May 2, 2014 burning of people on Kulikovo Polie. People showed up despite intimidation and danger of personal attacks. This made me very happy. Odessa didn’t die on May 2, 2014. It’s just waiting for the right moment to act! So is Kiev.

Videos of May 2, 2015 protests:

Kiev, 5,000 protesters came out with slogans, “Kiev remembers Odessa” and pictures of the Kulikovo Polie victims and recently killed journalists/politicians, asking: “Who is next?” People chant: ‘gan’ba,’ which means ‘shame.’ Link: Киев помнит об Одессе! Не простим!

Odessa: May 2 rally on Kulikovo Polie. People had to go through a very stringent security procedure. Guards confiscated Georgievskaya Lentochkas (traditional Russian Bands of St. George) now banned in Ukraine. ‘There is a dangerous quantity of invaders per square meter.’ Invasion of the Russian Hero-City Odessa 2014-2015 (background song: ‘Odessa, My Beloved City’). Link: Оккупация русского города-героя Одессы. People chant: ‘fascists.’ Slogan: ‘Poroshenko out.’ Someone actually sneaked this slogan in – they were taking them away at the entrance to the square. Thousands showed up for the rally. The troops you see in the footage were shipped in beforehand from western Ukraine. The burned down House of the Unions on Kulikovo Polie still hasn’t been rebuilt.

In the end, all the efforts and billions spent for the subversion of Ukraine will come to naught. Recall my timeline for the major shift in Ukraine: 2016-2018 (more in PREDICTIONS). Big changes are coming – and not only in that part of the world. Get ready!
