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

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US embassy Chertanovo warehouses access to which has been revoked as of August 1: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

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

New page for the FREE EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE Q&A
Much has been written; many videos and pics have been taken of the Hamburg G20 on July 7-8.
I have decided not to repeat what has already been said. Rather, my intention is to put my absolutely unique signature perspective on the whole thing. I have accumulated many thoughts and observations surrounding these topics, this is why this all-encompassing article turned out so substantial. This is exclusive material you won’t find anywhere else; I hope you enjoy it.
On July 7 I tweeted the following:
G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions
In this article I want to lift the veil over the quantum calibrations of various events and meetings, which in turn will give you a pretty good idea as to what really went on and how the participants of G20 fared in Hamburg.
As usual, the legend is:
QC = Quantum Calibration, or cosmic energy available to object or subject
CHI = Chi or earthly energy of manifestation in 3D, of object or subject
To learn more about Quantum and Geo Calibrations go to:
LadaRayYT – look for my two comprehensive videos explaining entire Quantum Calibration System
Overall calibrations for G20, July 7-8, 2017, Hamburg, Germany
QC 180 (pride), CHI 150 (anger) — Rather low calibration; Chi is notoriously low, considering all the protests, as well as tensions and cold shoulders happening between various parties.
Trump was unhappy being sidelined during the G20 ‘family photo’ and never showed up at the gala banquet. Melania was there alone, sitting next to Putin and having a lively and all-smiles discussion with him, as if such situation was orchestrated on purpose. Next day Trump sent Ivanka in his stead for the formal G20 session.
The infamous G20 2017 ‘family photo.’ Trump appears sidelined all the way to the left, between Macron and president of Indonesia. In reality, the protocol supposedly demanded that the newest-elect leaders would be standing furthest from the center. However, I can tell you that these protocols are routinely tweaked to promote a specific agenda, and our dear Western ‘partners’ play this game to perfection.
Recall how the seating at a similar G20 banquet event in Australia was arranged in such a way that Putin was sitting all alone at one of the round tables, while other tables were overcrowded, making it appear as if he was being shunned by others.
In the G20 2017 case, considering Trump’s pride (and yes, he calibrates at the level of PRIDE), this caused much damage to his ego, and in turn prompted his further actions — read more on that below.
By comparison, look at the position of Putin, between Chinese leader Xi and Turkey’s Erdogan.
BRICS meeting on the sidelines of G20
The informal BRICS session – a traditional gathering of the BRICS during each G20 – also didn’t get anywhere. Brazil, under the new pro-US Temer government, is trying to slowly distance itself from the organization. This is a separate discussion, for another time. Today, let’s look at the informal BRICS meeting calibrations.
QC 48 (guilt), CHI (185) — Very unproductive, dismal, in fact.
As I noted previously, QC suggests that there is a big problem; this problem I believe is the behind the scenes attempt by the US to drag Brazil out of the BRICS. Similar attempts are made regarding other weak links within the BRICS: India and S. Africa.
There is a clear attempt being made to isolate Russia and China. Of course, ultimately this is impossible. But what it possible, and being attempted, is this: the slowing down of the Great Earth Shift and of the rebalancing of the world towards a more equitable Multi-Polar World solution. We are presently observing a global give and take struggle, with a lot of positioning among several main global players and hidden forces, such as Deep State/Dark State, with drastically different visions of the future.
This is an absolutely typical struggle for this ongoing GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
PUTIN – TRUMP G20 MEETING
It was the most watched and covered event of G20. The rest has paled and was basically a flop. The word is that Putin and Trump turned G20 into G2. By far the most anticipated event of G20, Putin – Trump meeting was the only bright spot of this dismal event. Arguably, Trump was at G20 specifically to meet with Putin. I believe he used the G20 cover to arrange the conversation with Putin.
This meeting, which met with a huge resistance and sabotage in the US, is basically a rehearsal for the formal meeting between the two, which is being prepared. However, the resistance will always be enormous. Remember the STRAITJACKET I predicted for Trump?
That notorious STRAITJACKET and Trump’s attempts to push back against restrictions, was visible in everything.
The tension, struggle and overcoming resistance shows in the calibration of the Putin-Trump meeting:
QC 210 (confrontational courage), CHI 210 (confrontational courage)
The pre-announced sidelines talk was supposed to last 30 minutes. Instead, it lasted 2 hours and 16 minutes. Only Putin, Trump and respective FMs, Lavrov and Tillerson, as well as translators, were present.
Conspicuously excluded were Trump’s national security adviser, Russophobe McMasters, various aides, and the press.
Trying to disrupt the meeting, the American side sent various envoys into the closed room, attempting to lure Trump away. At the 1+ hour mark Melania Trump was sent in, with words, ‘Can I have my husband back?’ That didn’t work either. The meeting continued well overtime, and except for Putin and Lavrov official pressers, the parties aren’t sharing what was discussed.
Incidentally, during his G20 presser, Lavrov was uncharacteristically annoyed at the press and their dumb questions. Let’s recall that during earlier Trump’s meeting in Washington DC with Lavrov, American MSM was also excluded, while Russian press was allowed in.
Of course, this is part of Trump’s revenge against US MSM, and it also coincides with the wishes of the Russian side. Lavrov, this consummate and impeccable lifetime diplomat, has been lately noticeably pissed at the crazed and ill-bred American ‘journalists’ — something he let being known publicly.
I recently tweeted this:
I don’t know what the big discovery is, to be frank. I’ve known what US MSM was really about since the ’90s, and happily unsubscribed from all American papers, magazines and turned off all TV channels since. If you remember, it was still the time when there really was no internet and papers/magazines/TV were kings.
Back to Putin-Trump meeting. The detail noted by everyone was the handshake. No sign of the usual Trump’s aggressive handshake. Let’s not forget, Putin is martial arts Black Belt – such handshake could be quite risky. 😉
You all recall Trump’s signature handshake, during which he would pull his partner in various directions, in order to disorient and dislodge him. A habit from his tough business-dealing days, this handshake made a very uneasy splash among worried world leaders. Recall how he pulled and tagged on Japan PM’s Abe hand, not letting it go, and when he finally did, Abe winced in pain and exhaled with relief. The same kind of handshake disoriented Canada PM Justin Trudeau to such a degree that he had to brace himself against Trump to avoid toppling over. France’s Macron had to enter into a bona fide wrestling match with Trump, accompanied with a vicious stare, in order to assert himself.
It was unmistakable this time. Trump offered a completely uncharacteristic handshake to Putin. Open hand, palm up. The body language was clear: I have nothing to hide, let’s be friends. For a moment camera caught Putin looking at that hand a bit sceptically. Don’t blame him: Russia has a long history believing the word of Americans and the West in general, only to see it routinely broken. Putin is a student of history, and he is former KGB. He knows exactly what’s going on. Even if Trump himself has good intentions, he is surrounded with too many dark forces who’d spent lifetimes working on one single mission: to prevent any real breakthroughs between Russia and US. (Also, towards the bottom of this article see about Trump’s Polish faux pas).
Will this ever change? I am overall optimistic: it can, but it will take a lot of time, much work and much global rebalancing.
Putin hesitated for only one second – he extended his hand and they shared a very nice, even and mutually respectful handshake. Both displayed some very subtle and, unlike Trump’s normal behavior, inoffensive signature alpha male moves. But Trump’s hand being at the bottom is clearly a somewhat submissive gesture. It sort of says, “I recognize you are the leading alpha male here.”
This takes us back to my original Twitter prediction ‘don’t expect too much from this Putin-Trump meeting.’ Basically they have achieved the main thing: they met and spoke for as long as possible, considering all the pressures Trump has against him. This is already a huge breakthrough. More contacts will continue, but they’ll continue being laced with provocations and sabotage.
This is not to say that positive changes in US-Russia relations aren’t possible. They will be happening, albeit slowly and in small, incremental steps.
Please recall my prediction made in Earth Shift Report 16: US Elections, and in Webinar 1: Will Trump Survive his First Term? These predictions were made in October 2016 and February 4, 2017. Some even earlier. As you’ll see, they are materializing.
1. I said that Trump would be put in a straitjacket, allowed only to move in a narrow channel of possible actions, directed into certain actions and steered away from others. This prediction has been re-confirmed so quickly, so many times an in such spectacular fashion that even I didn’t expect that.
2. I said that US really has very little to offer Russia at this point because Russia is not ready to accept Ukraine back and carry it as dead weight, after it has been utterly destroyed by the 2014 Nuland subversion. I also said that The the Kissinger Ukraine and Post-Soviet Space Plan implies that US will begin slowly and secretly disengaging from Ukraine, as well as certain other areas.
Trump-Putin discussion confirmed all that: Kiev has to observe Minsk agreements; a special envoy has been designated by the US for further talks in Moscow to end Ukraine crisis. Never mind that this envoy is considered McCain’s man — most likely this is yet another move to bide time, until a better solution is found. This better time and better solution will begin in mid-2018 and into early 2019.
Overall, this move indicates Russia wants to include Trump/US in informal negotiations on Ukraine, which in turn indicates the terms of the abandoning of the Ukraine project are on the table.
Meanwhile, the Normandy format met on the sidelines of G20, with only 3 our of 4 parties present. The original Normandy format implied 4 parties: Russia/Putin; Germany/Merkel; France/Hollande (now Macron) and Kiev/Poroshenko. Poroshenko was snubbed for invitation to G20 at Putin’s request, and excluded from negotiations. None of the new developments have been discussed with Kiev by any of the parties.
In reality, both US and Eu leaders can’t wait to get rid of Poroshenko and the whiny Kiev junta — they just don’t know how.
As I said, Russia is absolutely not in a rush to accept Ukraine in this condition, or in any shape or form. Russia will hold off on any decisions until at least mid-2018, in other words, past Russian presidential election. It is likely that Russia will hold this position, watch what happens and do nothing until spring of 2019, after Gasprom shuts down all gas traffic through Ukraine. This is a separate discussion and we’ll have it later.
3. I said that the only possible real cooperation between Russia and USA, which may result in some moderate breakthroughs, is Syria. As we have seen, Putin and Trump agreed on ceasefire and 3 de-escalation zones in Syria. It’s interesting that for now the order in these areas will be maintained by the Russian military police, in coordination with Jordan and US. The roadmap for this de-escalation has been developed during Astana Assad-opposition talks, facilitated by Russia and Kazakhstan. Trump has agreed to this roadmap.
Of course, Russians are reasonably skeptical about this agreement. The previous agreements with Kerry and Obama were all quickly broken by the US. It is clear that Trump (per my original predictions) doesn’t control much of his government and underlings. There are leaks and revolts here and there. This will, unfortunately, continue – again per my predictions.
How Merkel met her guests
Merkel greeted each of her guests on the red carpet. You may have seen that footage. It was pretty remarkable how different her reactions were to various leaders. Let’s calibrate how she felt about some of them!
Merkel greets Trump: QC 85 (grief) – very bad relationship, no wonder Trump sabotaged G20 meeting by sending Ivanka in his stead.
Merkel greets Putin: QC 185 (pride) – Merkel has been basically told the following: Germany needs Nord Stream 2 yesterday, or there will be trouble. Siemens desperately needs fat Russian contracts and big orders to survive. Therefore, suck it up, granny, stop playing your silly games, forget Ukraine and Crimea – it’s time to make up with Russia. As I predicted in 2014: they huff and puff for 2-3 years, and then it’s business as usual.
Merkel greets Erdogan: QC 45 (guilt). Hardly tolerating him – after all, Turkey did boot out German military from its NATO bases.
Merkel greets Macron: QC 210 (confrontational courage). They kissed, Macron is Merkel’s best friend nowadays, especially when it comes to countering Trump or dealing with Ukraine.
PUTIN MEETS CHINA’S XI IN MOSCOW PRIOR TO G20
Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Putin met for two days in Moscow, just before the G20. This was done to compare the notes and so that both countries would present a unified position at the G20 summit. See more here: Xi Jinping meets Putin in Moscow and Giant Putin in Italy cornfield.
As I previously noted, the relationship between the two has been the closest it has ever been. Moreover, by his actions, Trump has been pushing China closer and closer towards Russia. Admittedly, not only China. This concerns even traditionally US-vassal countries such as Japan and S. Korea.
Let’s calibrate the Putin-Xi meeting in Moscow prior to G20:
QC 280 (friendliness/neutrality), CHI 290 – same.
This is very good and considering the shifting times we are in, rather productive. So much higher than any other international events we’ve calibrated! Lately we hardly see this kind of calibration in international relations. The positions were successfully coordinated and a number of major trade deals were signed.
TRUMP’S FAUX PAS IN POLAND
Meantime, before G20 Trump chose to go to Poland. It’s understandable. Poland was the only EU country that met Trump with some sort of admiration — something Trump has been looking for and couldn’t find in the EU. Of course, there was that awkward moment when Poland’s first lady ignored (didn’t notice?) Trump’s extended hand and went straight past him to first greet Melania. And of course, all those Trump-admiring and US-flag-waving Poles were bussed in for the pretty picture…
However, the true reason for Trump’s Poland visit is this. Since Putin was meeting with Xi in Moscow pre-G20, Trump’s Russophobic advisers obliged him to counter that by visiting the most Russophobic country in existence – Poland.
Trump’s trip to Poland: QC 90 (grief); CHI 181 (pride)
Poland, with its unfulfilled imperial ambitions, has been doing everything to grow exponentially the animosity between Russia and EU. Poland secretly was very much behind the 2014 Kiev Maidan and coup. Just like secret CIA jails, the training camps for the Bandera ukro-nazi militants and post-Soviet space opposition activists are located all over Poland. It was Poland’s long-standing aspiration to create a belligerent Russia-hating clone of itself out of Ukraine.
I had been too lenient on Poland for a while, giving them too much of the benefit of the doubt, and rarely talking about Poland’s hideous role. Poland has been known to hide behind the backs of bigger and stronger countries, where they would in the dark, quietly, do their ugly deeds.
They once hid behind UK’s back to quietly sabotage Russian Empire and then early USSR, including the killing of the Soviet ambassador. Then they hid behind Germany/Hitler’s back to invade Czechoslovakia. Later they hid behind USSR’s back to chop of a chunk of Germany. Today they are hiding behind USA’s back, trying to chop off chunks of Ukraine and Belarus, and swallow Lithuania whole.
However, I did warn about Poland at least once. My very mild 2014 prediction that Poland is turning into a bona fide Euro-fascist state, while at the same time trying to resurrect its failed medieval empire by absorbing Ukraine, Lithuania and parts of other countries, met back then with backlash from some Polish shills. Otherwise, it went unnoticed by my readers, probably because no one takes Poland seriously. This mistake had been made before. Hitler was once also not taken seriously.
It is completely hushed up in the West, therefore, very few know this. Several days ago the Russian Duma has considered a proposal to sever all diplomatic ties with Poland, expelling Polish ambassador and recalling Russian ambassador. This proposal has not been given green light yet. However, Polish ambassador has been conveniently absent from Moscow for a while, denoting an all-time low in bi-lateral relations.
You may ask: what’s going on?
At this time Poland is engaged in the wholesale destruction of over 500 monuments to Soviet soldiers who liberated Poland in 1944 from fascism. Over 600,000 Soviet/Russian lives were lost while liberating Poland during WWII. Now they are exhuming the bodies of these soldiers, including Russian POWs killed in Auschwitz, in order to ‘de-communize,’ as they put it. Russians asked for the remains of their people to be given to Russia for proper re-burial in the Russian land, but Poland refused.
Incidentally, did you ever wonder why the two most deadly and gruesome Nazi concentration camps were located on the territory of Poland? I can tell you why: because the energy of Poland was a good match for them.
Are there normal Poles, who disagree with what the government is doing? Undoubtedly. I do follow what’s happening there, and I’ve seen some honest and brave people trying to stand up to injustices. But, much like in the neighboring fascist Ukraine, I’ve seen time and again how these people are jailed, fired and viciously maligned. This is not the topic of this post, so I won’t give examples here.
I’ll just say that Poland, member of the EU and NATO, whose ex-PM is now the president of the EU, has developed into a full-fledged closet Euro-Nazi state. And Germany, EU and the West are simply looking the other way. The reason they don’t notice what’s happening under their very noses in either Ukraine or Poland is that they NEED Poland (as well as Ukraine) as a convenient ram against Russia. This started in medieval times, when the Vatican converted Poland into Catholicism, after which Poland became that notoriously violent ram. Nothing has changed since, and Poles seem to be enjoying this unseemly role.
The truth is that while normal people do exist in Poland, like in Ukraine, they are frightened and suppressed. Meanwhile the history is being re-written and the new generation is taught rabid Russophobia. It pains me to say this, but the majority of Poles are in fact crazed and violently xenophobic, Russia-, Ukraine- and Germany-hating ultra-nationalists.
I won’t go into any more gruesome details. Instead I highly recommend you visit the comment section under my recent post June 22, 1941: Nazi Germany attacked USSR. The ghost of Bandera. Who’ll decide the future of Ukraine. This comment section contains a very good expose of Poland’s true nature and real historic role, written by me and Nemo. This expose will give you a good perspective of the issue.
Back to Trump in Poland: let’s look at the logic of events. So, Trump is planning to meet with Putin for the first time the next day; he plans to establish bridges with Russia; he plans to discuss Russian cooperation is Syria, N. Korea and Ukraine… And knowing the whole background, just before that Trump goes to Poland.
While in Poland, Trump has talked about how much Americans love Poles (he forgot to mention all those American Polish jokes, lol). Trump also lauded Poland on striving for independence from its past, while re-writing its history in the process. Finally, Trump expressed support for Poland trying to get rid of its ‘dependence on Russian gas’ and solemnly promised that US will replace Russia as Polish gas supplier soon. Sure it will: American fracking LNG gas is only about 4 times more expensive than Russian. It’ll be a very profitable deal for Poland indeed.
Did Trump really understand what he’d gotten himself into, was he able to calculate the implications? Most likely, not. And very probably, he had no choice.
Therefore, I am making a very smooth and logical conclusion that the trip to Poland — filled with Russophobic agenda — was orchestrated by Trump’s straitjacket creators (his jailers, in fact) in order to derail the meeting with Putin. And how unfortunate that Trump in fact holds so little true power that he couldn’t get out of it.
Now you see why I said ‘don’t expect too much from the Putin-Trump meeting,’ and why I predicted long ago that the only true cooperation between US and Russia is possible in Syria, and only in small, incremental steps.
Sure, Putin was his usual diplomatic and polite self; he and Lavrov made the best out of Trump meeting at G20. But gestures like visiting Poland before the meeting and promising them ‘liberation from Russian gas’ won’t be forgotten. This is something that will continue being a thorn between Trump and Russia for as long as he is president, unless USA makes visible concessions elsewhere. Where – I’m sure we’ll discuss that eventually.
Sure, in a true Great Balancer fashion, Russia will still make every peaceful attempt to keep the relations with US going and to keep Trump out of harms way. No matter what, Trump is a lot better as US president than any alternative. Russia must continue re-balancing away from the brink of WWIII, to which Obama almost brought the world, and which Hillary would have escalated. Trump and Tillerson understand the need to step away from that brink. This is why Russia will continue talking with them.
But the trip to Poland was an unforgivable faux pas. It effectively derailed any proper cooperation. My prediction is that it will be very hard for Trump to get a true Russian cooperation when he’ll really need it. This has drained the last remaining shreds of Trump’s credibility.
And as I said, the Trump’s straitjacket creators engineered this scenario with this specific purpose in mind. Too bad Trump didn’t have the smarts and foresight to get out of it. After all, he was able to get out of G20 meetings and banquet, didn’t he? Overall, however, his straitjacket seems to be pretty tight.
Ivanka substituting for Trump at the G20 meeting
I am actually curious myself as to the calibration of this event. My immediate reaction is a distaste towards such open nepotism. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t dislike Ivanka; I think she is very good-looking and probably smarter than most of those ‘world leaders.’ Trump also has very few people he can trust and lean on – she is one of them. That said, the way it was styled and executed, the questions and aftertaste remain.
But let’s see what the calibration says!
The result of Ivanka sitting in for Trump: QC and CHI both 80 (grief).
Therefore, it was a very bad idea, on all levels. Obviously, Trump wanted to mock the proceedings, after having been snubbed, as he interpreted it, for the G20 ‘family’ photo. Still a bad idea. Nepotism never works. It reeks of a lack of integrity, and shall we say… desperation. Hence GRIEF as the calibration result.
Lukashenko of Belarus and his nepotism
Is this the sign of the times?
Incidentally, this reminds me of how Lukashenko of Belarus behaved during the recent New Silk Road Summit in Beijing (One Way, One Road Forum). He was invited there due to the fact that the main Silk Road through Russia into Western Europe must go through Belarus, in order to bypass Ukraine.
An interesting detail is that the Silk Road, in order to reach its main target Germany, must after Belarus go through Poland. Not only Poland has been openly hostile towards Russia, and by extension, to China, but Polish representatives were conspicuously missing at the Beijing One Way Forum. As a matter of fact, ALL European leaders were conspicuously missing, except two. The president of Czech Republic, who always openly styles himself as the only Russophile in the EU, and Greek PM Tsipras.
Czechia wants the lucrative New Silk Road to go through its territory, but you still need Poland, or alternatively western Ukraine. Now it’s especially clear why both Ukraine and Poland had to become Russia-hating entities, recreating the Iron Curtain. The southern branch can go through Turkey, Greece and into the Balkans, to connect with Austria and Germany, but it also has obstacles along the way.
Probably thinking himself indispensable for the success of the New Silk Road, the puffed up from pride Lukashenko broke all protocols by bringing with him his teenage son, whom he kept by his side at all times during meetings with other world leaders. He placed his son in the Beijing summit ‘family’ photo, next to over 20 world leaders.
Lukashenko placing his son in the midst of the world leaders calibrates at: QC 40 (guilt), CHI 8 (near death).
Generally, Lukashenko has completely lost any semblance of perspective and any sense of reality. I hate to predict it, but he is putting his poor son in danger by displaying such nepotism and openly pushing him into the limelight, as if grooming him for the next ‘tsar of Belarus.’ Again, hate to predict this, but due to his crazy behavior, Lukashenko’s days at the helm are numbered. He may be allowed to quietly retire, but that’s about it. Give him 2-3 years tops. Could be less. Russia in very interested in a peaceful transition of power in Belarus, so everything will be done so there is no violence.
PUTIN AND NEPOTISM
And here is a clear contrast for you: this is how Putin feels about nepotism. First, let me just say that Putin, by all polls and measures is consistently recognized as the most powerful world leader. Not only Belarus’s Lukashenko, but even Donald Trump isn’t in the same leagues.
When asked, Putin said that he never wanted his daughters and grandsons to grow up as princes and princesses. It was important that they had privacy and developed away from the limelight as their own people, true to their own path.
Calibrating Putin’s position on this: QC 481 (humanity and compassion) CHI 290 (neutrality/friendliness).
Very wise, and almost off-the-charts high calibration. That’s the real world leader for you.

Grace and Humanity under fire
The terrorist act in St. Petersburg Metro reportedly took 14 lives and injured a large number of people.
The bombed train Driver 1st Class Alexandr Kaverin (Машинист петербургского метро Александр Каверин) received much praise and became an instant celebrity after he reacted correctly and quickly in the face of danger. He managed to take the train out of the tunnel filled with smoke and drive it to the next station. Per reports, his actions saved many lives.
Also received commendations and state awards: Metro inspector who discovered the second bomb at another station Ploszhad Vostania «Площадь Восстания». The second bomb was found in the fire extinguisher at that station. Due to the inspector’s quick actions it never went off. Another award was given to the station manager on duty, who prevented panic and organized the orderly evacuation of passengers.
Account of the event by salt-of-the-earth hero, Metro Train Driver Alexandr Kaverin:
“I heard a loud pop and train stopped in the tunnel. Smoke was filling the tunnel. There was no panic, but passengers initially gave conflicting accounts of what happened.
However, we managed to determine the real cause of emergency within one minute. We lucked out: the train stopped near tunnel exchange. After my emergency signal 3 other Metro employees quickly arrived at the scene and we were able to determine what happened.
After that, I tested the train and determined that movement was not impeded. Made decision to drive to the station. I’m not a hero, just acted according to instructions. We had terror acts before this. Some very smart people wrote our emergency instructions.
When we arrived at the station all doors opened right away, except the doors in the bombed car, which were jammed. I want to thank my train passengers: those who got out didn’t leave but began helping to pry the doors open, they basically had to tear and break these doors to help the victims inside.”
Video with awards and hero train driver interview (Rus):
After the explosion the emergency protocol was triggered and all Metro stations were shut down as the search for any potential explosives was underway. Metro closure was tough for the city of 5 million.
After the word of the bombing got out, private drivers and cabbies from all over the city flocked to the site. Not to make money of the tragedy, no. They offered free rides to those in need. City gas stations chipped in by offering free gas to drivers who took stranded passengers home for free.
Today near Red Square: huge crowd of Muscovites gathers to pay tribute to St. Petersburg bombing victims:
ADDED: ‘Petersburg, we are with you!’: Memorial event to honor victims of metro bombing (360 video)
The world pays tribute to the victims of St. Petersburg bombing
Russian Embassy Kiev, Ukraine (there are normal Ukrainians)
Colors of the Russian flag on Tel Aviv Mayor’s Office, Israel:
And in the midst of all this, GERMANY, AND SPECIFICALLY BERLIN, SHOWED ITS TRUE COLORS! I should qualify that it is the government of Germany and of Berlin, and Merkel personally who showed their true colors.
If you recall since day one I said Merkel was damaged goods and predicted sh was not to be trusted. Back in 2014 I received got backlash for it, with Europeans arguing with me. I’ll tell you more about Merkel’s future soon – stay tuned!
Hypocrisy: traditionally, in solidarity with terror attacks victims, the Brandenburg Gate would be lighted with colors of a country where a terrorist act had occurred. It had been previously lighted with the French flag after Paris attacks, Belgian, Israeli, Turkish, American flag (Orlando attack), etc.
When St. Petersburg attack took place – no reaction, NOTHING, Zero! Despite citizens’ demands, Berlin mayor refused to light the gate with the Russian flag colors, thus showing German govt’s and Merkel’s true colors (as if it was a secret before).
To the credit of Berliners, they’ve displayed a small replica of the Brandenburg Gate and painted it the colors of the Russian flag.
This video is a translation of the German alternative journalist’s rant about this shameful behavior, called, ‘Brandenburg Gate, show the colors of humanity.’ Note, on thumbnail you see Brandenburg Gate painted the colors of the Russian flag – this is a fotoshop done in protest by German activists. In reality, the Brandenburg Gate remains IN THE DARK.
I calibrated St. Petersburg as one of the cities I selected for my Earth Shift Report 17 Quality of Life Geo Calibrations study, and it turned out to be one of the highest calibrated and desirable major cities on the planet! This is despite harsh winters.
Much of the high calibration of St. Pete undoubtedly comes from its amazing culture and unparalleled beauty. But as we have seen, it also comes from the high quality of its citizens and their grace in the worst circumstances imaginable.
St. Pete is still a Hero City, even if it’s not called Leningrad any more.
During WWII, the Hero City Leningrad experienced the most brutal in human history siege, perpetrated against it by German Nazis, resulting in mass starvation and genocide, and costing 650,000 civilian lives. But it never surrendered and it was never taken by the enemy.

9. Will there be a relief for the Mother Earth soon? Will Trump presidency be good or bad for the environment; what can we expect going forward? (In this answer we go into the human consciousness, fossil fuel and alternative energy, as well as ‘free energy.’ We discuss how the levels of human consciousness and how our way of life correspond with the level on which our consciousness vibrates.)
10. Were there alien bases in Antarctica? Was a secret base built there by the German Nazis during WWII? What really happened in Antarctica and WHEN? Forbidden history of Russia.
11. Is Melania like Jackie Kennedy? Melania Trump quantum calibrations, compared to Jackie Kennedy’s quantum calibrations. Lada’s opinion of both.
P.S. Almost forgot: in Q&A we also discussed Reinventing Collapse by D. Orlov and how I see the future of the US unfolding; where Orlov was right and where the US collapse will be entirely different from how he describes is. My terms explained: What is “The Mirror Collapse” and what do I mean when I say that “the US approaches collapse from the opposite direction than the USSR did.”
There were other interesting questions answered.
Much more info and predictions will be revealed in the upcoming webinars and in my book The Putin Enigma.
COPYRIGHT LADA RAY Feb 4-6, 2017. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
Nancy, you answered your own question. Nothing to add really.
But let’s broaden our perspective. The reasons for this move are as follows:
1. This is a general knee jerk reaction to the fact that they know they are losing and they have to show their teeth. There is no Russian aggression. If anything, just the opposite. But this is a cornered beast’s reaction to something they can’t control any more. This is the spoiled global bully’s reaction who always managed to terrorize others without recourse and suddenly it gets told that this won’t happen any more.
2. Erdogan’s threat to boot out US/NATO from Incirlik Base is relevant to this knee jerk reaction.
3. In addition, this is the continuation of the same anti-Trump time bomb installation, in order to make relations with Russia as difficult to normalize as possible.
4. This is also done to reassure NATO that it won’t be abandoned by the US – something NATO fears greatly. NATO is in panic: they may lose many of their fat gigs and much of their self-importance if Trump pulls financing.
5. Finally, this is done to reassure Merkel, Poland, Baltics, Romania and Brussels – in short, all the E. Europe and generally EU puppet states, who were installed by US/West in the 1990s to keep the Iron Curtain alive and well. These are the governments and politicians who sold out to the shadow forces and who now fear being abandoned by Trump. They have so many skeletons on their closets that now they are afraid to be left without US tanks.
7. IMPORTANT! However, it’s not Russia they are afraid of. Russia continues underscoring with all her behavior that there will be no Russian intervention either in Ukraine or any other place in E. Europe, despite the pleas of many people in Ukraine and beyond.
What these sold-out E. Europe/EU politicians are afraid of is the wrath of their own people. This will happen the moment US tanks and US advisors leave.
Therefore, the fear of the ‘potential’ Russian aggression is just a cover to dupe their electorate and to distract the people from internal problems. In reality, all these politicians, military, intelligence and MSM are afraid of their own people and of the ‘potential’ and ‘probable’ crimes tribunal.
8. ALSO IMPORTANT!
I have to underscore again that Angela Merkel is very important in this new development. She will stand for re-election in 2017, while her ratings have plunged lately, as I predicted they would, back in 2014. This is due to her disastrous domestic and international policies, most importantly: 1. due to her immigrant policies; 2. her support of the Kiev junta and illegal coup against Yanukovich; 3. her support of anti-Russian sanctions.
Merkel bet all her money on Obama and on being a US puppet, as well as the puppet of the global banking cartel. Her job has been to keep EU under control of these forces.
She also bet her entire career on the NWO and neo-liberal agenda. And this is what will bury her career. She feels threatened due to alternative parties gaining on her. Both left and right hate her; same is true for people in her own party.
She needs US tanks to keep her safe and to stop any possible uprising.
9. In general, all these NWO/US puppet EU politicians now feel under threat. Trump announced he would be against globalism, and that he would curb the US financing of NATO. Trump is also gearing to undo much of Obama’s ‘legacy.’
NATO and Obama have to show that they are still relevant. In fact, all this is a death throes hysterics.
Notice also this: masks are entirely off!
Remember all this talk about ‘AAMDS in Europe’ – one of the cornerstones of Bush-Obama policies for EU and NATO? Russians for years have been saying that the AAMDS installed in Romania and agreed to be installed in Poland, was directed against Russia. NATO/US have been adamantly insisting it was directed against potential Iran aggression against EU. In reality no one ever believed that.
Now, having been cornered, having lost their former control over global, Middle Eastern and European events, they don’t pretend any more. Fake Iran threat doesn’t cut it any more. They need a much bigger enemy. To distract their own populations from their real problems and to redirect their anger and fears towards fake external threats, they need now to point the finger at Russia. Russia had been used as a scapegoat to scare the populations in the West into submission and maligned this way since forever. I’ve seen it all my life; generations before me have witnessed the same.
Meanwhile, the only thing the populations of Europe, and of the US as well, have to fear are their own sold-out governments and media.
Unfortunately, we are dealing with some very aggressive beasts here, who won’t give up without trying to drag everyone into the abyss with them. They won’t succeed long-term, but short-term they’ll try to do whatever damage they can.
P.S. Incidentally, much of the same is happening now in Ukraine. Kiev junta is behaving both violently and bizarrely, indicating the worsening death throes.
Amid all this ugliness, there is a big and beautiful silver lining. It seems darkest before the dawn, but don’t let that fool you. Both in the US/EU and in E. Europe/Ukraine/Moldova big changes are afoot.
I know last year I promised a major Ukraine, Moldova and Pridnestrovie update. I want to share with you all some hugely positive breakthrough news from the latter two and also a lot of news from the former. The Earth Shift is underway, and Ukraine/Moldova are shifting right on schedule, per my 2014-15 predictions!
Please stay tuned for important updates. I’ll probably do them as YT videos.

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

100.0% Reporting Votes
Remain a member of the European Union
Leave the European Union
I think this is an awesome result and I congratulate the British people on this achievement!
The result, as I pointed out in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU, could be worse based on the collective unconscious I’ve tapped into, which displayed the underlying energetic confusion and a strong potentiality for vote manipulation. I still think (per my ESR12 thoughts) that completely unmanipulated, the BREXIT vote should have achieved 58% or better result TO LEAVE. That said, the people of the UK have an excellent reason to celebrate.
And David Cameron resigned! That alone is a great result. Truly, no one could be worse than him, although how much better can it get if the next PM is from the same party? In truth, just like the US, the UK requires a complete, 100% overhaul of its political system. More on Cameron, Boris Johnson, Nigel Farange, Merkel, Marine le Pen and Trump in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU.
However, as you see, the vote is very close. I spoke about it in ESR12, explaining what this would mean.
I realize how exhilarated everyone is with the victory, albeit a very close one. Please forgive me for raining on anyone’s parade, however, my ESR12 prediction about the general timeline of the EU and UK remains largely unchanged.
Obama and US + Merkel and Brussels will try to do what they can to delay BREXIT and to keep UK tied to the EU. At least until after Russian Duma elections in September 2016 and until after US elections in November 2016. If they fail at that, it will greatly boost Trump’s chances and it will also add more support to Russia and Putin.
They know this very well, but it’s encouraging to see that the EU people are finally awakening.
That said, the referendum result itself is a HUGE blow to Obama, Hillary Clinton and Merkel. It is a great boost for Trump, and Trump will try to capitalize on it, while Obama/US establishement/EU will try to do everything to sabotage and delay the implementation of BREXIT.
The polarization of the Western society has reached its peak, which is normal for the times of great change. We’ll see who wins the battle in the near term.
The recent successes of the alternative parties in Italy, France and Austria, various EU revolts, the Dutch referendum and the YUKOS Dutch court decision in Russia’s favor all point to the fact that US and subservient to it EU elites are losing the battle. This in itself is excellent news and we’ll talk about it below. I call the gradual change this brings the rickety chair effect. The EU revolts, the effect in question and where all this will eventually lead are discussed in detail in ESR12.
Again, please forgive my caution and extreme conservatism, with a modicum of skepticism, when it comes to assessing the future of the West. Just consider for a moment how close the vote result has been: 48.1% vs. 51.9%. There is a danger that this close result will be used to try to delay BREXIT, or to make a covert deal which would make it look on the surface as if UK has left, yet the country would still likely be tied to the EU in secret.
I still see a lot of confusion and fights inside the UK going forward.
Incidentally, it’s also possible that Scotland will try to secede once more. Similar movements to secede also exist in northern Italy and in Spain (Catalonia/Barcelona).
My relative skepticism is strictly short-term, and believe me, I’ll be happy to be wrong here! All my life I’ve seen too much ugliness, contempt and aggression towards my country Russia, and my people, from the West. Regretfully, this ugliness isn’t abating – it’s actually intensifying as the gloves off fight over the future of the world comes to a head. I’ll be overjoyed if the people of the West manage to positively surprise me by acting better than I’ve seen them act for years.
By contrast, my long-term global predictions are very positive and remain the same as always:
1. The Great Eurasia is forming in front of our very eyes, and it’s only the matter of time for it to gain real traction.
2. The predatory US Empire is waning, which in the long run will be good for all, certainly including Americans.
3. EU has two roads to choose from and depending on how soon and how well Europeans make their choices, it can be done the easy way or the hard and protracted way. If present EU governments refuse to reform, if new politicians are not elected in the EU ASAP (Merkel, Hollande and the Brussels gang all have to go), EU will fall apart within several years.
But is it possible to save the EU at all? No, not in this configuration. But IF after EU falls apart (and NATO is disbanded – give both several years) some countries decide they would like to stay or get back together in some sort of looser and more productive configuration – why not. They should.
The closest analogy is that of the USSR. EU is undergoing the process the USSR and the so-called ‘Eastern Block’ experienced in mid-to-late 1980s through 1990s. Both Warsaw Pact and the USSR fell apart because the way they were held together was counterproductive and even harmful. However, as we are observing, the new, much healthier and forward-looking alliances are now forming around Russia within the Eurasian space (and global space, too).
4. The rickety chair effect I describe in ESR9 and ESR12 is gaining momentum. If you recall, in ESR12 I said that BREXIT, regardless of its result will generate a domino effect in Europe when more and more countries will want to have referendums to exit the EU, since EU isn’t fulfilling their needs and aspirations any more. This will lead to the old EU ‘chair’ becoming more and more rickety and more and more unstable.
Recall that I said since 2014 that Greece may again try to GREXIT in 2017 or 2018. But Greece is in a very difficult economic situation. It’s more likely that the richest and most successful EU countries will try to exit first, namely France, the Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, and even Germany. Emboldened by their success in the UK and the earlier anti-Ukraine vote in the Netherlands, the organizers of the referendum are very likely to go on helping organize similar referendums in other EU countries.
5. REFERENDUMS GALORE coming up! The new GLOBAL TREND has shaped up in front of our eyes, began by the Crimean March 2014 referendum to secede from Ukraine. When politicians and elites refuse to listen to their people, people will take power into their own hands and show their strength through direct democracy.
6. The positive effects of the rising REFERENDUM TREND is that of the direct democracy and people’s empowerment. People will begin recalling that they do hold real power.
Another positive effect will be in favor of the long-suffering people of Russia and what is so far called Ukraine (the future Novorossia, plus possibly also Carpatian Rus and Kiev Rus, depending on how finalized divisions will be made).
The effect is this: after having their own referendums and the change in the rotten political system of the EU, Europeans will finally recognize the Crimean and Donbass referendums and they will finally stop harassing Russia! The voices to recognize Crimean referendum are already sounding from the saner EU politicians, and eventually it will become a norm.
Recall my prediction that Ukraine (under another name, or names) will turn back to Russia by 2018. All this will be happening simultaneously: along with an avalanche or referendums and EU revolts and the turn of Ukraine towards Russia, not only Crimea will be recognized officially as a part of Russia by the West. Along with DNR/LNR 2014 referendums, the forgotten referendums in Pridnestrovie – Transnistria (to join Russia), as well as in Abkhazia and S. Ossetia will also be recognized. This may take a few years though.
Very few in the West know, but the USSR had the famous 1991 referendum, the information about which was buried. In that referendum the majority of the former Soviet republics voted to preserve the USSR. Just imagine what happens when the real results are made public or the 1991 referendum is repeated!
The interesting thing is that even the former Baltic republics that are considered anti-Russian (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) may surprise us, should their people are ever allowed to have their own opinion. So far the regimes there suppress the voice of the people, aided by the US tanks. And this is why Estonia and Latvia deny the right to vote to their Russian-speaking population. What will happen when millions of the so-called ‘non-citizens’ are actually allowed to vote? One thing for sure: US tanks will have to leave in a hurry…
In fact, people everywhere will be emboldened to conduct referendums on issues of importance. Some Balkans/ex-Yugoslavia mini-states, which have been artificially divided, may decide as a result of their referendums to get back together. Specifically these are: Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia.
I also foresee a new tight union (economic, political and more) eventually forming between the Balkans countries, including some of former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece – and Russia/Eurasian Union.
I am very curious to see what happens to Turkey after the Kurds get together and organize their referendum.
These are just some of the examples. In general, we are present during The GREAT EARTH SHIFT. The old systems, be it political, social or spiritual are falling off and the new are emerging. The new countries, new borders and new unions will emerge and strengthen, while the old will either diminish or disappear altogether.
I give NATO a few more years before it is disbanded.
BREAKING NEWS: at the same time that we all were fixated on BREXIT, a historic SCO summit took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. SCO, per above prediction on the new alliances and unions, is growing exponentially. I’ll have a separate piece on that. Stay tuned!

ALL EARTH SHIFT REPORTS
This is a very disturbing development. The New Year’s celebrations in Cologne, Germany had been marred by the reports of wide-spread harassment by aggressive groups of Middle Eastern men, many of whom apparently were the newly arrived refugees. Hundreds of German women reported being harassed and sexually assaulted during the NYE celebrations.
Another unsavory development is that German Chancellor Angela Merkel personally leaned on German MSM to hush it up; moreover, Merkel struck a deal with German MSM and American-based social media platforms, such as Google and Yahoo. According to the deal, US-based social media giants and local MSM alike agreed to mass remove comments critical towards refugees.
At the same time, it has become known that Swedish media for at least two years has been covering up harassment of Swedish women and girls by the Middle Eastern migrants. Here is the link to the video: Swedish police ‘migrant sex attacks coverup’ exposed.
But this isn’t all! In fact these weren’t random and spontaneous occurrences based on some uncontrollable lust by young men far from home, lost in a foreign culture and without access to a normal dating scene. Nope. These were pre-planned and knowingly executed events. There is a disgusting time-tested Arabic ‘tradition’ called ‘Taharrush ja-mie’. This Arabic expression describes a group harassment committed by young men during mass gatherings. This tradition is alive and well in those countries where a woman is still considered an object owned by a man, to be dealt with as he pleases. To be fair, something like this (perhaps not to the same degree) is still alive and well in Caucasus too, particularly in Georgia and Azerbaijan since these countries follow the Middle Eastern way of life in many ways.
Now, it is spreading to Europe. And we all know why and how this has happened: as a consequence of the refugee crisis.
I have discussed in detail by whom, how and why the refugee crisis was organized in my No. 1 bestselling EARTH SHIFT REPORT 7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM. The investigation conducted by German journalists is very enlightening!
VIDEO: ‘Taharrush Gamea’ – Arab ‘Rape Game’ Spreads Around Europe from Middle East:
Here are some predictions, to build up on what I’ve pointed out in response to Emil’s question regarding the future of Sweden:
I said that Sweden would experience a continued rise in riots and protests against the status quo, especially by young men.
This, however, applies to all EU countries, especially to Germany. The anti-emigrant protests and riots will continue expanding. Most of those protesting will be young European males, although some women as well. In addition, the far-right will continue rising for at least the next several years and its message will continue being more and more attractive. If this message isn’t heard by the elites, then there will be rioting.
As a response to the refugee crisis, border controls in the EU will continue increasing as each country will strive to put up some sort of barriers. Surveillance will continue increasing on all levels of society. EU will be slowly experiencing a roll back of freedoms Europeans are used to. I first predicted the roll back of EU freedom of movement and border controls introduction in 2012. Read more in: Per My 2012 Prediction! French Elections and the Rise of Marine Le Pen and National Front.
EU elites, including personally Angela Merkel, had made huge mistakes in their handling of the refugee crisis. I discuss in ESR 7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM how Merkel chose the erroneous strategy of Erdogan’s appeasement. Various ulterior motives and neoliberal political correctness of the EU elites have created a self-fulfilling prophecy. Correcting these grave mistakes will be very hard, while the population of the EU will suffer from their consequences.
I love Europe, which I consider my home and where I’ve spent quite a few years. It’s hard to watch how that nice, safe and charming Europe I’ve known is slowly disappearing.
For those who have missed it, read Emil’s and mine related discussion regarding Sweden’s present and future in the comment section of the latest: False Flag Technology: Paris False Flag.
Marine le Pen’s National Front wins the first round of regional elections with a national total of about 30%. It’s ahead of Sarkozy’s Republican Party and the trailing ruling Socialist Party of Francois Hollande. National Front gained sharply in the past 3 years and is expected to win again in the second round of these elections. The result has stunned the two traditional parties.
Even if National Front doesn’t win (and barring some huge and almost impossible surprise, such as Sarkozy and Hollande uniting against le Pen, it will win round 2!), Marin le Pen’s star is clearly rising very quickly and definitively, while Hollande’s is plunging, as I predicted in 2012. Back then I also predicted the turnaround of the French policy – and it’s coming. When French policy changes dramatically, it will sweep the change into the rest of the EU. Of course, fully this will happen later, but it’s a good start!
If you think that French regional elections don’t decide that much, it’s true. Regional elections are not very significant per se, but they are considered an important litmus test and dress rehearsal in the run up to the French National Elections of 2017.
Marine Le Pen, Member of the European Parliament:
Videos with more details
Marine le Pen’s National Front:
I want to note that what passes for ‘far right’ in France, in fact is a tough, but sensible and reasonable conservatism. What’s important is that it’s outside of either neocon or neoliberal ideology presently dominating the West.
Marine le Pen wisely took steps to soften the image of her party by dismissing her party’s tough far right ideologist, who, interestingly enough, happens to be her father and the founder of the National Front. This attracted scores of new voters. Le Pen is a consistent proponent of good relations with Russia, who’s also for France’s sovereign and independent policy. She is a huge critic of the EU in general and Angela Merkel’s policies in particular; USA and NATO skeptic.
In 2012 I had predicted the rise of Marine le Pen and her party.
Here is a quote from my French Presidential Elections 2012 article in which I predicted that Sarkozy would lose and Francois Hollande would win elections.
Excerpts from April 28, 2012 article:
In a very funny twist, I am predicting that in the second round socialist Hollande (left) will take some of Marine Le Pen’s (far right) votes, along with the fourth place finisher votes (far left).
Seemingly, it doesn’t make any sense. But: the vote for Hollande is a vote against Sarkozy. This is a protest vote, pure and simple. Because, as I said in my January 2012 prediction: “[Sarkozy is] deeply disliked in his country and [that’s why he] will lose.” The French simply don’t want another five years with him.
In addition to Sarkozy’s ineffectual domestic policies and his foreign policy that is both too America-centered and too bellicose for the liking of the French electorate, there is also another reason. As mentioned before, the crisis in the EU continues to deepen and that spells disaster for the incumbent Euro leaders. So far, 9 governments have been ousted due to the European crisis, including Greek, Italian and Dutch. There are more to come. For Sarkozy, this spells the perfect storm.
On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election (which, based on his reaction after the first round has been a surprise only to him, but no one else). The next President of France, breaking with the long-standing French tradition of allowing a president 2 terms in the office, will be… Francois Hollande.
Most importantly, with the new man at the helm, the direction of French politics will undergo a certain change. There will be SOME change in the French attitude towards the EU and Eurozone. However, I wouldn’t expect TOO MUCH of a change at this time. Real change will come later.
Some change to the emigration policy from the poor countries, which is a big problem in many European countries, as well as in Russia. The European countries will attempt to coordinate their emigration policies and certain border controls will be introduced very soon. But the emigration mess will take a very long time to sort out.
Perhaps most notably, with the new president France will change some of its foreign policy. For one, France will stop playing, forgive the expression, “The French poodle” to the US foreign policy, the role it’s been playing during Sarkozy’s neocon tenure. France will re-acquire its more independent stance on foreign affairs, which it used to enjoy under various other presidents since Charles De Gaulle. And hopefully, France’s policy will acquire a more peaceful flavor, as support for invasions and bombings of other countries wanes.
However, if Francois Hollande fails to fulfill these deep-seated hopes of his electorate, the French people will likely vote him out of the office five years from now.
In that case, Marine Le Pen, the rising star of the French politics, emphasizing pride in France, its roots and culture; who is anti-emigration and anti-war, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.”
In 2012 I also predicted Barack Obama’s win, as well as Vladimir Putin’s win with the exact percentage of votes.

New predictions as of 11/24/15, incl. preliminary prediction for US Presidential Election 2016:
- Explosive Consequences of Turkey Downing Russian Su-24 Jet in Syria – Complete Analysis and Predictions!
Donetsk Republic announced that they had uncovered secret plans for a new massive attack on Donetsk and Lugansk by Kiev.
I have translated/summarised the urgent announcement by DNR Defence Spokesman, Eduard Basurin.
DNR received this secret intel from high level sources within Kiev army ranks.
Kiev amassed 90,000 troops on Ukraine/DNR-LNR (Novorossia) border, preparing to attack. This armed force includes 450 tanks, 2500 armored vehicles, 5 heavy rocket launchers Tochka-U and thousands in various artillery hardware. This army has been concentrated in four key locations. Mariupol, to attack Donetsk from the south; central to attack Donetsk from the west; third one to cut off Donetsk from Lugansk and fourth to attack Lugansk from the north. The reserve group is located behind these four army groupings. The north and south groupings will also cut off LNR and DNR from the Russian border in order to stop humanitarian assistance and close the circle around both republics, thus suffocating them.
Video with maps:
On August 24, Ukraine celebrates its independence day. According to intel, today Poroshenko (oligarch, president), Yatsenyuk (oligarch, PM) and Klichko (boxer, mayor of Kiev) will announce a coalition of their three parties in order to run together in the upcoming local elections.
Ukraine will have local elections in October. Poroshenko’s ratings are down and even his former cronies distrust him. The right sector is threatening to start maidan-3 at any moment. Attempts to start a new maidan have been made by various groups, mainly protesting the economic collapse, shortages, hyperinflation and unemployment. However, every protest attempt has been squashed.
But anger and severe disappointment are brewing all over Ukraine. One day they will boil over.
Yatsenyuk’s rating is basically zero. So is Klichko’s, who can hardly string two words together and therefore is considered unfit for office. However, these three have a muscle in the form of their parties, which they lavishly finance out of those billions they stole.
Yatsenyuk is the darling of the US and Klichko is Angela Merkel’s personal protegé. Poroshenko used to be a compromise figure, convenient for both US and EU. But it appears that time has passed as no one accepts him well any more. However, Poroshenko’s ability to cling to power cannot be underestimated. He will do anything to hang on. The alternative is basically the international tribunal for crimes against humanity. Yatsenyuk and Klichko are in the same boat.
At the same time, they all have done very well for themselves, having looted what they could from the country. Oligarch Poroshenko’s wealth went up 7-fold in his one year of presidency (I had a video about that) and Yatsenyuk is now officially a dollar billionaire.
However, these three know they would lose these local elections in many regions. This is why they must try to unite.
My intel says that people in cities of Kherson and Nikolaev (south/Black Sea area) would prefer the Opposition Block. It consists of sort of remnants of the Party of the Regions and certain minor oligarchs who are for better relations with Russia, while also maintaining closer relations with the EU. In addition to the above, there are also some relatively honest people in the Opposition Block.
In Odessa, if elections were semi-honest (and this is a huge IF), the winners could be the pro-Russian, pro-Odessa-autonomy, anti-Kiev party Rodina (Motherland), and possibly also Opposition Block. Rodina is one of the main forces still legally remaining in opposition. They used to have good positions in the city council, however, many of them had to flee Ukraine and are now in exile.
A few do remain, such as my favorite Odessa politician, Grigory Kvasnyuk. Generally, there are very few opposition leaders still remaining in Odessa, who are still capable of staying afloat in today’s environment. Kvasnyuk, for instance, is constantly called to SBU for interrogations. Some of those who were able to provide a meaningful opposition perished in the May 2, 2014 fire on Kulikovo Polie, some were chased out of the country, some thrown in jail. Same picture is true for any other region of Ukraine.
However, Rodina still presents a danger to powers that be. This is why its leader, former Rada deputy Igor Markov was recently arrested by Interpol (!) in Italy, where he was on vacation, based on a trumped-up charge that he caused public disturbance in Odessa in 2007 (8 years ago!). This charge had been overturned several times by various courts, but it still get manipulated for political reasons.
The primary reason for the attack on Markov is his joining of the Committee for the Salvation of Ukraine co-organized by him, ex-PM of Ukraine Azarov and ex-Rada deputy Oleynik. The arrest, which will be overturned eventually, still will slow down the preparation for local elections and discourage the beheaded party Rodina. This is what Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk are counting on. Odessa remains a trouble spot and a huge sore for the Kiev junta, despite putting Georgian ex-president and wanted criminal Saakashvili in charge of Odessa oblast. Everything will be done to prevent decent people from being elected into city council.
Generally, Odessa is very oppressed and suppressed; people are afraid to speak up. The situation is very similar in Kiev, Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk.
The situation in Donbass is the following: Donbass is roughly divided into two halves. One half belongs with Donetsk and Lugansk Republics and another half is under junta occupation. We all remember that on May 11, 2014, the people of then Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts in their entirety voted in a referendum against Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, and for their independence. That was well before the war started.
It is understood that people all over the occupied parts of Donbass will vote for those candidates who are the closest to the Republics and furthest from the junta. This may create the situation in which these areas are formally under Kiev, but de-facto a part of LNR and DNR.
Widespread electoral fraud is also expected throughout Ukraine. However, my intel suggests that Russia, Eurasian Union and SCO are sending large election monitoring delegations to each polling station on the occupied territory of Donbass. Therefore, at least in Donbass fraud may be very hard to execute.
That’s why Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and Klichko are scrambling to join forces, attempting to boost their numbers. However, this will likely not help their chances. They are risking losing the rest of Donbass without a single shot fired, based on democratic elections.
This is one of the main reasons for the intensified shelling of Donetsk: Poroshenko and his puppet masters are attempting to make DNR and LNR lose their cool and counter-attack. After that, DNR/LNR get accused of breaking Minsk accords and the new round of sanctions against Russia begins.
According to my intel, if DNR/LNR don’t lose their cool, watching their peaceful population being bombed every day, Kiev plans to re-start war by beginning its own massive attack, as seen above. In either event, the escalation of conflict will allow Kiev to cancel local elections.
The plan is multi-prong and multi-layered, according to the best CIA playbook. The biggest prize is always Russia. The ultimate goal, if DNR/LNR are attacked full force and Minsk agreements are broken, is a renewed attempt to make Russia lose her cool and send troops to protect Donbass.
We know it was attempted multiple times since last year in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa. The latest provocation this summer was to fully blockade Pridnestrovie, where Russian peacekeepers and at least 100,000 Russian citizens reside. That was a very dangerous moment, which I watched very closely.
The Pridnestrovie blockade was orchestrated by the US agents Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk together with Romania, in order to drag Russia into an open war. However, it didn’t work out due to several skillful maneuvers by Russia and EU. Instead of Ukraine, Moldova opened its borders for Russian supplies, thus releasing pressure, at least temporarily.
The story of Pridnestrovie is still very convoluted and the next big problem is anticipated in December, 2015. All this is connected to the general Black Sea geopolitical fault line that is ripening at this time. I am watching it and will probably do a piece or two on it later in the year. Stay tuned!
Today Ukraine is celebrating its independence-from-Russia day. Some call it: ‘the independence from the common sense day.’
After participating in early celebrations and officially announcing his alliance with Yatsenyuk and Klichko, Poroshenko will the same day fly to Berlin to meet with Merkel and Hollande. Therefore, the announcement of the Porosh-Yats-Klich election coalition has been deliberately orchestrated to coincide with the independence day – for internal consumption, and with the trip to Berlin – for external consumption.
Poroshenko is trying to demonstrate something to the EU. That he is serious about staying in his post? That he means business and wants to win local elections? Or that he can in fact work with others? Or he thinks that’s how he can get more money? All of the above, I think.
There are many speculations why he is meeting with EU leaders without Putin (the Minsk and Normandy formats assume four parties participating). My view is that Lavrov and Putin have tried to instill in Holande and Merkel that Russia won’t tolerate a new escalation in Donbass, especially before the elections. It appears Poroshenko is being called on the carpet for a bit of reprimand and thrashing, but also to promise him more support if he behaves a little better.
Most analysts are sounding alarm over the upcoming new war escalation, predicting a major attempt by Ukraine to re-establish its control over entire Donbass and the Russian border. Access to the Russian border is crucial for the Republics. It is their only lifeline.
I can tell you right away such plan is absolutely doomed and this Kiev junta will never be able to take over DNR and LNR, nor the Russian border. Previous attempts to attack DNR and LNR resulted in Debaltsevo and Illovaisk cauldrons with thousands of Ukraine troops dead or taken prisoner. They won’t succeed, however, they can unfortunately cause a lot more death and destruction.
That said, Russia is now using any and all diplomatic leverage with EU to make EU pressure Poroshenko into backing off. EU isn’t interested in a new military escalation either. EU is now facing African/Middle Eastern migrant crisis of staggering proportions (see my post). They can’t afford any additional instability to the east.
At least in that, Russia and EU are united. However hard the US tries to portray a united front against Russia, EU and US are experiencing a widening rift over Ukraine. I wrote previously that EU cannot rebel openly against the US because every time they are attempting an even remotely independent policy, France or Germany experience a false flag.
They have to tread very softly, thus a very low-key meeting with Poroshenko in Berlin. Ukraine will likely be promised more money from the EU, as a sort of carrot, if it at least attempts to observe certain appearances.
So far, Ukraine has been kept on life support by both US and EU. This ties up US and EU resources. The longer such situation lasts, the better for Russia.
The initial idea was to put a wedge between Russia and EU, exhaust and break Russian economy, create anti-Russia out of Ukraine and tie up the Russian army in Ukraine after Russia would break down and send peacekeepers to Ukraine.
None of the above worked our very well for the ‘planners.’ There is a school of thought that suggests that Russia is tying up a lot of resources supporting Donbass (about 2.5 million people left there since the war started), therefore, weakening her economy.
But Donbass is one of the most developed territories of the former Ukraine, which provided during good times up to 30% of Ukraine’s GDP. Donbass can support itself.
The rest of Ukraine is much larger in size and much less productive. Kiev, western and central Ukraine were subsidised by Donbass and the rest of the South-East.
Pay attention, US and EU taxpayers! US is stuck having to support the entire Ukraine: 30-35 million people and the territory the size of France. Nuland and US State Dept spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine. How much do they spend daily now to KEEP UKRAINE ON LIFE SUPPORT, especially considering all the crooks and thieves in power, pocketing most of the US and EU infusions?
In addition to IMF and EU loans, EU provides hidden subsidies in the form of reverse gas supplies from Slovakia, Hungary and Romania. Ukraine prides itself on having gotten away from the ‘dependence’ on Russian gas.
The new gas supply route to Ukraine looks like this: first Russia send gas via Ukraine to Central Europe, or via Nord Stream to Germany. Then, part of this gas purchased by the EU gets sent BACK to Ukraine to make it seem as if Ukraine is independent from Russia. The price of what is called ‘reverse gas supply’ is lower than Ukraine pays directly to Russia.
And now a trick question: who do you think subsidises this gas and who pays for it when Ukraine, the country in de-facto default, can’t pay? That’s right, the EU taxpayers, especially Germans.
Of course, Ukraine still has to buy some gas directly from Russia, but Russia has put Ukraine on a strict pre-payment schedule.
Previously, Russia subsidised for years Ukraine’s gas purchases. The money saved on this new gas arrangement can be spent on Donbass.
Having lost some serious electric power capacity after DNR and LNR seceded (they produce 30% of former Ukraine’s electricity), Ukraine also buys electricity from Russia at subsidised prices. Russia still continues subsidising Ukraine’s electricity. Part of it is in fact Donbass electricity, which now goes through Russia and then gets routed to Ukraine in a round about way.
All the above attests to the idiocy of the Kiev junta. Just like in that old sad joke: to spite my enemy I’ll kill my goat so my children would have no milk.
Instead of having good relations with Russia and buying gas directly at a good price, they prefer to beg EU for reverse supply, inconveniencing everyone in the process. Instead of buying electricity directly from Donbass, they declare a war against them so Donbass routes its produced electricity to Russia, after which Kiev begs its enemy No. 1 Russia to sell them some electricity. When god wants to punish someone, he takes away their reason…
Of course, that’s exactly what the puppet masters who are pulling Ukraine’s strings want. They can’t manipulate sane people. They need crazies and crooks for their plan to work. Since Ukraine has turned into the world’s largest insane asylum cum mafia state, they are having a feast.
I know, the news aren’t as rainbowy as many of my readers would like. But every cloud has a silver lining. The crazier they act, the sooner the population of Ukraine will start awakening from this madness. The signs are already there. The diplomacy at large is working better and better. The restrained Russian position is already heard by some in the EU, and more and more are starting to doubt the official party line.
Recall my timeline for the turnaround in Ukraine: 2016-18. We are getting closer and it’s all developing according to plan.

As we know, Greece is in technical default on its 1.5 bln euro payment to the IMF/EU creditors. Experts tell us that this could snowball, with Greece going into default on all its debt, which is over $350 bln. If Greece defaults on its entire debt obligation, it will send huge shocks through the world financial system and will seriously undermine Eurozone and Germany.
This is why Greece’s negotiation position isn’t that hopeless. They have aces up their sleeve. EU can’t afford Greece’s total default, neither can it really afford Grexit. US cannot afford Greek default either, because it can signal the beginning of the end of the whole dollar-based empire.
The national referendum announced by the ruling Syriza party on the future of Greece is to take place on July 5th. Greek PM Tsipras urges people to vote ‘no’ to creditor demands, in order to improve his negotiating position.
My prediction: The Greek referendum will deliver the majority NO vote to austerity and creditor demands.
The fact that creditors didn’t give an extension to Greece so people could vote, instead squeezing the country on June 30th, is very telling. I wonder, what happened to the supposed ‘democracy’ the West is so proud of? How democratic is it to sabotage the Greek national referendum – a true voice of the people?
First, it’s clear double standards: Greece, a member of the EU, is treated as an unloved, unwanted child by the EU and IMF. IMF, of course, represents the interests of the US and EU, where US rules supreme.
At the same time, IMF’s Christine Lagarde tells us that Ukraine, not a member of the EU, will continue receiving IMF loan tranches, even if it defaults on sovereign debt it owes Russia. This is in direct violation of the IMF laws.
So, the West is now in violation of both self-professed cornerstones of its society: democracy and law.
Do you know how empires die? That’s how – they implode on themselves, confused and in denial. We are observing a slow disintegration of the Western (US-EU) empire. This is the time when only the blind and the unscrupulous don’t see that the king is naked.
Second, and most importantly, the difference in position on Ukraine and Greece by the IMF and EU is clearly geopolitical in nature and has absolutely nothing to do with economy. The common denominator in both is the country’s relationship with Russia.
The present Kiev junta in Ukraine is supported because it’s at loggerheads with Russia, yelling and screaming on every corner that Russia attacked them. No one believes that, but this narrative is diligently parroted by the Western MSM, nevertheless.
This has to be expected, if whistleblower journalists from countries such as Ukraine and Germany come out with revelations that they are given the text of what to say in their reports – a text written at the US embassy – and told not to deviate from it. A well-known Kiev journalist Oles’ Buzina was recently killed after the publicly revealed that his publication was forced to print false information based on the US embassy in Kiev script. German whistleblower journalists who have revealed that the entire journalism profession in Germany is sold-out to the US, doing only USA’s bidding, are forced to go into hiding because of threats.
Greece is shunned and squeezed because it dares to have good relations with Russia, speak up against anti-Russian sanctions and participate in Turkish Stream project.
I talked about the geopolitics and economics of Turkish Stream in my previous episode: Macedonia Coup Attempt – War Against Russia & China (LadaRayLive 12).
GREEK DEFAULT AND GREXIT PREDICTIONS
You know my prediction about Greece: it will exit the EU by 2017. In my original prediction, which you can find in Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey-Greek Election-EU Breakup (LadaRayLive 6) and my FT articles, I said that the reason it will take some time is because the relationship with the EU is so complex that it will take some time to untangle.
We already see that the energy is moving in the direction of Grexit. But it won’t happen yet. Greece and EU will be delaying it for now. The most important mark for Grexit will be the completion of Turkish Stream. Grexit will happen close to that date – this is the date to watch!
Of course, due to the importance of Turkish Stream for so many reasons, it will be sabotaged by the US, EU and Germany. It will be a difficult going, as I said in the previous episode. But it will be done.
From this perspective, it’s more beneficial for Greece and all other parties involved, including Russia, if Greece agrees to certain conditions by creditors and stays low for now. Direct confrontation with the EU will only make them sabotage Turkish Stream more forcefully.
For now, Greek debt will have to be a compromise, where EU will give some and Greece will, too. There is indication that that’s what Greek PM Tsipras is doing.
To conclude: will eventual Grexit cause a domino effect all over the EU? Yes, it would. However, it won’t be fast. I see it as a slow and gradual process, taking years and lots of negotiations.
For the next few years, the make-or-break moments of reckoning to watch are: completion of Nord Stream-2, Turkish Stream, discontinuing of gas transit to EU via Ukraine, and a change of power in Ukraine, accompanied with gradual weakening of the US. The timeline for all this is 2016-2019, with most events taking place between 2017-2019. US weakening will continue after 2019.

Pope Francis: Catholic Church’s Pope, an ancient title he holds ex officio as Bishop of Rome, in which capacity he is Sovereign ad vitam of the Vatican City State. Born: December 17, 1936 (age 78), Flores, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Full name: Pope Francis. Nationality: Argentine. Parents: Mario Jose Bergoglio, Regina Maria Sivori.
During his visit to Italy two days ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Pope Francis at the Vatican. It has to be noted that, while the Pope is obviously not fooled about what’s happening in the world – undoubtedly, his Argentine roots play a role in his clear vision – Italy as a state also is trying to find a way to quietly mend relations with Russia outside of the EU. It’s interesting that Putin’s visit took place directly after the G7 bash in Germany, during which Merkel and Obama sang a lot of anti-Russian songs in-between of sips of banana-flavored beer (not kidding) and vowed more anti-Russian sanctions.
It is also happening against the backdrop of the US trying to sneak its mid-range nuclear missiles into the EU, targeting Russia, and many other ugly things that signal the fresh push for World War IV (WWIV because, in all truth, we should really consider the Cold War as WWIII). But more about that in another piece.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s third meeting with Putin in the past year is a signal that Italy is attempting to distance itself from Germany and the US. Italy is obviously trying to wiggle its way out the crippling anti-Russian, and return Russian, sanctions. Italians have told me that Italian agriculture is hard hit by the quid pro quo sanctions.
At the same time, Italy is trying to revive its lucrative energy cooperation with Russia, which the US and its vassals in the EU are actively sabotaging. Italian energy companies have been working on deals with Russia since Berlusconi. The most important component of these deals was the direct supply of the Russian gas to Italy via the southern route, which was supposed to be accomplished via South Stream. The northern route – Nord Stream – was successfully and very quickly pushed through by Germany, utilizing the German clout in international affairs.
Italian clout isn’t nearly as substantial. Moreover (I wrote about that in the past), Berlusconi’s reputation with women notwithstanding, he was undoubtedly pushed out of his post because of his close relationship with Putin and ‘excessive’ friendliness towards Russia.
The Italian energy companies, first of all Eni, took a blow after US managed to sabotage South Stream and the project was closed. The new Turkish Stream project is needed like fresh air by many countries, but it is already running into significant difficulties due to sabotage from the same source. See my video: Macedonia Coup Attempt – War Against Russia & China (LRL12). The new twist in this saga is coming up in one of my future vids. Stay tuned!
Pope Francis is another thing all together. Catholic church and the Vatican continue to hold a very substantial sway over worldly affairs, even if this soft power is invisible to most.
Francis’ interest in meeting with President Putin isn’t so much economics, although this issue concerns anyone who lives in Italy; while the Vatican is a separate state, it is, after all, geographically a part of Rome. Additionally, much of the Pope’s flock resides in Italy and surely, his people are well-aware of those farmers and shippers who are going bankrupt because of sanctions; they know of losses Italian energy and industrial companies are suffering.
Still the Pope’s main interest at this point is geopolitics and the diplomacy of peace. And that’s where it gets interesting.
During Putin and Pope’s behind-the-closed-doors visit, which lasted 50 minutes – longer than prescribed – Pope Francis gave Putin the “Angel of Peace” medal. This medal is said to have the ability to create peace and protection, as well as the solidarity among peoples. The choice of words is very interesting: a symbol – ‘talisman,’ ‘wish’ – of protection and peace is being given to Putin by the head of the Catholic church. ‘Solidarity’ is the word feared terribly in the US, but used broadly in socialist and left-leaning societies, including South America and Pope’s native Argentina. Pope Francis has also mentioned that the Bible addresses not just spiritual matters, but also geopolitics as one of the important aspects of human co-habitation. The above language of symbols and hints, typical for the Vatican, thus reflects an important message.
The US pressured (and by pressure I mean blackmailed, coerced and attacked in the media) Francis to take a tough line on Putin and condemn Russia. Meanwhile, the head of the so-called Greek-Catholic church of Ukraine archbishop Shevchuk criticised the Pope for meeting with Putin and urged him to shorten or cancel the meeting.
The Greek-Catholic church of Ukraine is something that was created in the 18-19th centuries, during a forceful Catholic conversion of the western Ukraine population – at the time under Catholic Poland and Austria-Hungary. It is in fact Catholicism disguised with a thin layer of Greek flavor (the words ‘Russian Orthodox’ were banished).
Since the 2014 Kiev maidan coup, Ukraine’s Greek-Catholics took a very violent posture against Russian Orthodox churches and priests, traditional for most of Ukraine. Many Orthodox churches in Donbass were destroyed by bombings or burned down and looted. Many priests and church-goers continue being threatened and humiliated. A large number of Orthodox churches all over Ukraine were forcibly taken away from the rightful owners and converted into Greek-Catholic ones.
Someone asked me last year, when all this was going on, whether Pope Francis was becoming a hidden ally of Russia. My reply was that the only thing Francis could do as far as Ukraine was to offer an olive branch and try to distance himself from what was happening in Ukraine. This is what he did.
The extreme violence and rage of the primarily Greek-Catholic element from western Ukraine isn’t something he can control. But after the violence finally calms down and the right people come to power in what is now Ukraine (recall my timeline: 2016 -2018), all the churches wrongly taken away from the Russian Orthodox church will be returned to the rightful owners. Let’s consider this one of my little predictions. Putin and Francis spoke behind the closed doors and the topics of their conversation were not disclosed. But knowing Putin, I am sure that he got a promise from the Pope that he would use his power to return the churches.
The Vatican continues being a powerful and deep-reaching conglomeration of various interests, from spiritual to financial and geopolitical. This is one of those entities that can subtly influence world opinion and serve as part of the diplomatic solution, when used for good. There are one billion Catholics in the world today. The power of the Catholic church stretches through Europe and Latin America, as well as many countries of Asia and Africa. Catholic influence in the US is not as significant and it is doubtful that Pope Francis would be able to talk any sense into the US ‘leadership.’ On the contrary, US has the audacity to admonish the Pope and read him lectures on how he should conduct his affairs. What else is new?
But it is out there for all to see that this Pope is different. Pope Francis clearly disagrees with the West and the US and he clearly prefers Putin. In fact, there is a talk of an unlikely alliance. Call it a soft-power diplomatic-spiritual alliance. Francis likes the fact that Putin has positioned himself as defender of Christians, who are under attack in Syria, Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East. Francis also took a pro-Assad and pro-Syrian government position against the US.
Pope Francis and all heads of the Catholic Church – as leaders of most other main religions – prefer Putin to Obama, or other Western leaders. The reason lies in Putin’s straightforward conservative values combined with his active stance in promoting religious tolerance, equality, friendship and cooperation between various religions. I hear the same from prominent leaders of Jewish and Muslim religions. Since most people on the planet are religious, this is something that endears Putin to many.
Pope Francis is undoubtedly anti-US hegemony, anti-Western imperialism and militarism. He has to be as diplomatic and possible, but the fact remains: this is certainly his Argentine roots talking. Based on the above, Putin and Francis hit it off pretty well.
But it goes deeper than that. I believe that it’s well beyond Pope Francis and his personal preferences, although it helps to have the right man at the helm.
The Vatican elites aren’t blind. They see where the wind is blowing – and it’s away from the US and West, towards the East. Call it abandoning the sinking ship of the West OR steering the Vatican ship into more promising waters…
The Vatican is re-orienting towards the East, Russia and China.
And the Vatican isn’t the only one. Israel is doing the same, and not just Israel.
But what about Putin? Oh, he plays his master chess as usual. I wrote in 2014 that Putin, with his out-of-this-world tireless productivity, circled the world and managed to glue together a network of various allies all over the globe. Sure, the US has the biggest and scariest army in the world; it also controls the world media and financial system. It can intimidate, bribe, blackmail or attack anyone. That’s why countries are afraid to speak up. But the future is behind the alliance that is forming quietly, and often secretly, behind the scenes.
Putin continues looking for new allies, quietly weaving together the new world, where the US won’t be hegemon. And now the Vatican is slowly but surely shifting towards this alliance.
Italy is the friendliest towards Russia out of all significant Western economies. The Vatican, located in the middle of Italy, is positioning itself for the future. The Pope’s friendly position towards Putin and Russia also reflects the opinion of the majority of Catholics in Italy, Spain, Greece, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela and all of Latin America, as well as Asia and Africa. And it’s not what Washington has hoped for.
An interesting confirmation of what I said from an unlikely source, CNN!
I really don’t read or watch CNN. But as I was looking for the Pope and Putin’s image online, this popped up: ‘Why only Putin could turn up late for meeting with the Pope’ – Link to article. Moscow (CNN):
“There aren’t many world leaders prepared to keep the Pope hanging around for a meeting. Russia’s President is perhaps the only one.
Pope Francis discovered this on Wednesday as he waited, patiently, for more than an hour at the Vatican for his guest to finally arrive. There aren’t many world leaders either who could annex one part of a neighboring country while backing a bloody rebellion in another part, and still avoid strong criticism from, arguably, the world’s most influential religious figure. Vladimir Putin appears to fall into that narrow category too.
The issue of Ukraine was raised, we’re told, during their brief, closed-door meeting. According to a Vatican statement, “The Holy Father affirmed that it is necessary to make a sincere and great effort to forge peace,” in the war-ravaged country. Pope Francis and Putin also agreed to “restore a climate of dialogue.”
But the exchange was not the condemnation called for by many, including members of the Greek Catholic congregation, who number millions in Ukraine, and who have expressed frustration at the Pope’s failure to criticize Russia’s role in the Ukraine conflict. Nor are the words likely to satisfy the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, Kenneth Hackett, who urged the Vatican, ahead of the Putin meeting, to “say more about concerns on territorial integrity” in Ukraine.
To be fair, the Vatican is not following the same diplomatic agenda as Western governments regarding Russia.
Hale goes on to suggest that Francis may play a diplomatic role in resolving the conflict in Ukraine too. But if Wednesday’s meeting was anything to go on, in which the Pontiff and the President exchanged gifts, I wouldn’t get your hopes up.
No, that meeting was more about Putin than the Pope. Just a day after being publicly scolded by the world’s industrial powers, the G7 — including a particularly strong rebuke from U.S. President Barack Obama — Putin was shoulder to shoulder with the spiritual leader of 1 billion Roman Catholics worldwide.
Russia may not be quite so isolated after all.”

HAPPY MAY DAY, everyone!
May Day (Pervomay) is traditionally celebrated in Russia and beyond with flowers, songs and happy outings.
Early video of May Day celebrations in Russia: #Vladivostok and #Khabarovsk (the Far East) mass parades on video. #Moscow has several different parades and rallies – early footage from the Red Square rally.

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

The latest breaking news from Ukraine:
1. The family of Ukraine president Poroshenko has urgently left the country via a charter flight. This means that the situation in the country is much more unstable than is being portrayed, and the true extent of turmoil is being underplayed. It also means that Poroshenko knows that he may be unseated any moment and has negotiated an asylum for his family with his handlers in the West as part of the Minsk agreement. Instead of flying straight back to Kiev after Minsk, Poroshenko actually went to Brussels first where he had undisclosed conversations with EU politicians, including Merkel and Hollande. Undoubtedly, this is where the asylum was negotiated.
In one of my 2014 articles I said that I was expecting another Kiev maidan by spring 2015. Yarosh and other ukro-nazis say that they will never observe the Minsk peace agreements and threaten to overturn Poroshenko. Rada is trying to initiate impeachment proceedings. Maidan may be close. Will it happen? I think the wild card right now is Merkel and Hollande tandem. Afraid of a hot war in Europe, they finally mustered some courage to present a unified front in Minsk and beyond. They may spoil the party.
I had also said previously that I didn’t see Poroshenko surviving in his position for much longer.
In one of the previous articles’ comment sections we also had a discussion about the potentiality of an even more obvious nazi regime coming to power after Poroshenko is unseated. I am of the opinion that worst case scenario of an openly nazi regime materializing would actually be better, as it would cause the terrible abscess that is today’s Ukraine to come to the surface, ripen and erupt faster. Ukraine, and the world in general, needs this cleansing. The terrible infestation in Ukraine had been festering inside for too long. It has to come to the surface and be expelled. The faster it happens, the sooner people can start the process of rebuilding.
Read my long-term PREDICTIONS for Ukraine, Russia, USA and more.
2. Ukraine sources are reporting that since the population is sabotaging the mobilization, Kiev junta is now conducting a forced mobilization. The military board a city bus and tell women to leave, while all the men who remain on the bus get herded into trucks and sent to the front. People from Zaporozhie (in central Ukraine, one of the cities that wants to join Novorossia) report that national guard breaks into people’s homes and forcefully hauls off the males into the army.
All this is happening after Minsk peace agreements have been signed and as ceasefire is supposed to be in effect in Donbass. Meanwhile, Donbass reports that there is no ceasefire and that Kiev army is consolidating its forces and attacking the positions of self-defence. They have again attempted to take the Donetsk Airport, which, according to Minsk accords, is supposed to be part of the DNR territory.
Kiev has completely abandoned 5,000 of its soldiers cooking in the Debaltsevo cauldron. Kiev denies the very existence of the cauldron and the fact that their forces have been surrounded by DNR and LNR.
3. German sources report that US military advisors in Ukraine have been busy. According to German intelligence, Americans were able to bring onto the territory of the Debaltsevo cauldron a ‘suitcase’ nuke. It appears US has nothing left to lose after Germany and France broke the ranks and sat down for peace talks with Russia.
Let’s recall what I’d been saying from the start. The goals of the US in Ukraine are, among others: 1. to put a wedge between Russia and Germany/France/EU; 2. paint Russia as a villain; 3. pit Russia and Ukraine in a hot war, by making Russia send troops to Ukraine.
The potential false flag involving a mini-nuke inside the Debaltsevo cauldron is supposed to be blamed on Russia. Therefore, Russia gets again painted as a villain that detonates nukes in poor Ukraine. This may result in more EU sanctions and in US delivering those lethal weapons they had been threatening to send.
Several weeks ago I said that we should expect a massive false flag in Ukraine, something that would be much bigger than MH17. There has been a recent mini-nuke detonation at the chemical plant in Donbass, but apparently, it failed to achieve the desired effect. It is possible they will try again in Debaltsevo. This has to be watched. And as I also said before, if a lot of people talk about it and watch it like hawks, it’s possible to prevent such false flags. Hopefully they will fail.
According to intel from Russian/Ukrainian military analyst Alexander Zhilin (who’s originally from Nikolaev), 4 such American tactical nukes were delivered in November 2014 to the Ivano-Frankovsk military airport in Western Ukraine. The question is: where will they surface?

A message from Lada:
We have outdone ourselves in the past couple of weeks with many new articles and videos appearing almost daily. Just last week alone we posted 4 new LadaRayLive video episodes on various globally important topics. Please see links on this blog or go to Lada Ray Channel to subscribe and watch. Today’s article about Ukraine adds to the whole picture.
I have also recorded 2 interviews with The Plane Truth and Cat’s Eye on the Future radio shows, which will be appearing starting next week. In the former we discuss my proprietary brand of Geopolitical Feng Shui and the BRICS; in the latter, we let our hair down and have an extremely fun discussion about the upcoming Chinese New Year of the Sheep celebration and fascinating aspects of the Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui.
Let’s consider some of the above a bit of an advance.
On February 19 we are starting to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Wood Sheep. I will be taking a few days off from writing and videos, but I will be checking my blog and email as usual. We will be with our Chinese family and we hope to watch the dragon dance and the Chinese New Year parade. I’ll try to record the dragon dance and post it on my YT channel.
I’ll try to post some new, fascinating Feng Shui and Chinese New Year videos on Lada Ray Channel as well. More feng shui information will also be posted on LadaRay.info. Stay tuned!

Some very good thoughts from Paul Plane, the host of The Plane Truth show on the Time Monk Radio, followed by my thoughts and predictions. I will be happy to expand on these brief predictions in the future Earth Shift Reports, should my readers be interested.
We all have our own perspective. Paul’s is different from mine, but it’s well-thought-out. Paul is generally very knowledgeable and he poses interesting questions.
Incidentally, next week Paul, his team, and I will have a very interesting new interview on The Plane Truth Radio. The topic we are planning is the BRICS, and any other topics that may come up – wherever our spontaneous discussion takes us. Please stay tuned!
This is the continuation of our discussion from: Ex Ukraine PM: West expected Yanukovich to die like Gadaffi and the comment section of Maidan 2 Storms Poroshenko’s Administration in Kiev.
Kiev junta methods
I can see what Paul means by negative Ukrainians. Many had been brainwashed very thoroughly. But the majority is simply scared to speak up because of severe oppression and intimidation.
Here are two videos, first one from Kharkov. It’s the trial of the Kharkov activist Oleg Novikov: link. People gather in the court room when the judge announces that it will be a closed trial and no press or spectators are allowed. People start quietly leaving – no objections, no protests. The clincher is that Novikov, the leader of the civil organization ‘Ishod’ – ‘Exit,’ is a one-legged cripple, and father of two small children. They are afraid of a cripple, because he speaks up against junta. How weak and rotten can such regime be?
Second video is the interview with a woman who describes how a deputy of the Nikolaev regional council was arrested because he said that those who are now waving Bandera nazi flags will start waving Russian flags the moment the power changes. For that he was arrested by SBU (CIA/FBI equivalent) and thrown into jail: link.
Predictions and how they will play out
My view has not changed since the beginning of 2014. Remember what I said: ‘Russia will gradually and slowly change the status quo in her favor using all quiet and peaceful means.’ No military interventions or jerky reaction; only the well-thought-out chess moves. I also said it would take till 2016-18 to accomplish the real turnaround. (See PREDICTIONS, early articles on Ukraine, and our first interview with The Plane Truth.)
This is exactly how it is playing out, as you can see. The key words are: slow and tedious change. Ukraine people are slowly changing their minds (it’s not my fault people are so slow, but as one Russian statesman said, ‘sorry, I don’t have any other people for you.’)
The every-day details of how the change could materialize tend to fluctuate as humans try to influence events, thus tipping the balance temporarily this way or that. But in the grand scheme of things these ‘minor’ fluctuations will not influence the end result.
My predictions are based not on the superficial events, but on the prevailing energy I see manifest in the future, and here the energy is quite clear. There are instances when the future energy isn’t as clear, but it is very clear in this case. Therefore, the end result is just a matter of physical manifestation, which is always slow and delayed in 3D compared to the fast energy of thought, especially clairvoyant thought (something I usually call ‘prediction’).
Additionally, it’s worth keeping in mind that the 3D manifestation is also not as clear-cut as thought, often very confusing for the immediate witnesses because of many distracting events. Therefore, to most humans, what had happened often only becomes evident years later. For anyone who wants to be an intelligent witness and observer of the Earth Shift, it is important to learn to discern between mere distractions and truly important events.
As to how it will happen – it’ll be very hard and tedious (hence confusing and distracting events), as I also had said. That is because the cancer has been allowed to spread too far. There is no way of removing it painlessly, but pain is what will make many people in Ukraine wake up. But it doesn’t mean that they should shrivel up and wait to be freed by the third party, as many of them hope. They will need to fight in order to achieve a turnaround.
The resistance from Kiev/US is and will continue to be brutal of course. This has to be expected.
Ukraine economy will be completely destroyed. It actually is already destroyed (this I also predicted), but they so far manage to cover it up with the help of the US and EU. It’s interesting that Russia has managed to temporarily shift the burden of propping up the dead weight called Ukraine onto the EU. This was one of those subtle, yet brilliant Russian moves I talked about.
EU will never admit to it, but Russia is educating the EU about Ukraine. The fact that EU has to pay for Ukraine’s gas and other expenses will cause the EU to tire of Ukraine very soon (this is already happening). Eventually, US/EU will stop supporting Ukraine as it’s too cumbersome. At that point Ukraine will stop being interesting to the West. Rather, it will always be interesting, but it will be completely impossible for them to support it. Then, the Russian lesson for the EU will be complete. Basically, it sounds like this: ‘You have no idea what you are getting into with Ukraine. Why don’t you try it… Got it now?’ These things I also said early on in 2014.
The reason the West won’t be able to restructure the Ukraine economy, while Russia can, is because of the cultural, psychological, and profound metaphysical differences. West has completely miscalculated Ukraine on all levels, just like it always miscalculates Russia.
What do I mean? This is an involved conversation – perhaps I’ll cover that in one of the Earth Shift Reports. Paul is correct in thinking that much thought is being given by the Russian thinkers and decision-makers on how to rebuild Ukraine when the time comes.
These are the most important points to understand:
1. Ukraine will never be treated like Chechnya. The situations are very different. Massive investments have been infused into rebuilding Chechnya and it now looks pretty darn good.
However, Russia will NOT pay for Ukraine as dead weight. Ukraine will be helped, supported, directed to a better path. But Russia will not lavish Ukraine with investments and money infusions until Ukrainians show they care about their country and are ready to work properly. Till then, Russia will be very slow with investment.
2. Russia will be ready to share investments into the NEW Ukraine with China and Europe, as long as Europe acts with sovereignty and sense.
3. Russia will not rush with ultimate Ukraine conflict resolution until Russia is absolutely sure that Ukrainians and Europeans have learned their lessons I spoke about earlier. This has to sink in. This is one of the main reasons for slow changes.
4. Ukraine economy is destroyed. Practically new economy may have to be built from scratch. More about it in future ES Reports.
5. Finally, Russia doesn’t want to ‘annex’ Ukraine as part of RF. Russia wants a good, friendly, solvent neighbor and partner in Eurasian Union, who has solid economy and can feed itself.
6. That said, more Russians than anyone in the West can imagine have roots in Ukraine, yours truly included. Therefore, millions of Russians care deeply what is happening in Ukraine and they will work tirelessly to make it right, whether the Russian government will do anything or not. This is one of the main things the US has miscalculated. The same thing happened with Napoleon and Hitler. And aggressor will always miscalculate, because they will never understand that people can be completely selfless; that incredibly busy and very accomplished people may drop everything and do massive amounts of pro-bono work in order to see justice and balance restored in what the US believes is some godforsaken Ukraine. Some speak the truth, others shoot documentaries exposing the truth, yet others volunteer, send humanitarian aid, or engage their high-profile political contacts all over the world. These people will never rest until Ukraine if free from ukro-nazis. And this is why, my friends, US and West will NEVER be able to subdue Russians. They have no idea what kind of spirit the usually peaceful, non-confrontational people can possess.
Borders of Ukraine, Zakarpatie and Galichina issues
Remember what I said a year ago? Russia would prefer to keep Ukraine intact, and of course, peaceful – for both geopolitical and economic reasons. It is the West’s preference to break it up and create chaos, not Russia’s.
I agree about Galichina, which is a part of western Ukraine. My personal view is that the border of new Ukraine, or possibly Novorossia (as the name may be changed after all), should be redrawn to exclude Galichina. One problem is that a part of western Ukraine, called Zakarpatie (Transcarpathia) is actually populated with Russins, in other words, Russians who preserved Orthodox religion despite terrible 18th – beginning of 20th century genocide by Austria-Hungary, and who want to be with Russia. If the border is redrawn, they will be cut off. There is another area, called Chernovtsi, which may have a similar problem in regards to Romania. Even the Galichina proper isn’t all anti-Russian. All this can be resolved when the time comes. A lot has to be weighed.
How brainwashed is Ukraine?
That said, my highly connected sources in Ukraine report that presently Galichina is less anti-Russian than Kiev and central Ukraine. This is probably because all the crazy Galichina nazis had moved to Kiev in the past few years. Also, while the population gets terribly brainwashed every day by ukro-MSM (they say things you won’t believe), the real anti-Russian layer isn’t that deep. The majority are simply deceived by ukro-propaganda constantly yelling about Russian invasion, or are just opportunists.
In that sense, it is truly sad how little Ukrainian population is capable of thinking and how much it runs on lowly emotions. It should be clear to anyone with half a brain that if Russian army indeed invaded Ukraine, it would be in Kiev within 2 days and in Lvov within one week or less. Since this isn’t happening, it should be clear that there is no Russian army present. Even OSCE and Kiev finally had to admit it. Yet, the thought implanted in people’s brains through zombifying propaganda will stay there like a thorn, constantly reinforced by new infusions of hate, until the thorn is removed. By many accounts, the Kiev junta is worse than Nazi Germany, and their propaganda is even more shameless.
The old vs. the new: Global Geopolitical Game
To understand truly what is going on, don’t focus exclusively on Ukraine or Donbass. Some events in Ukraine constitute those distractions I was talking about (unfortunately, very bloody and tragic kinds of distractions).
Presently, we are observing a global multilevel game, or struggle, however you look at it. Russia is helping Donbass. But Russia’s main focus is to play the high stakes game with US, Germany/EU, China and other players, thus slowly shifting the global geopolitical balance. All these players, by virtue of various interests and nuances, will slowly shift the balance of power that will influence the situation in Ukraine and everywhere in the world.
There is a lot more going on than meets the eye, including in areas very far from Ukraine. The recent events in Turkey, Greece, India, China, Iran, Armenia, Cuba, Latin America all fold into the same game, the most violent part of which is being played out in Ukraine.
Ukraine’s future is decided in Moscow and Washington DC, with the help of Berlin, Paris, Beijing and a few of other capitals. It is not necessarily decided in Donbass, Odessa or Kharkov (although their actions are important) – even less so in Kiev.
Once US backs off, EU and Ukraine will change their attitude immediately. What most people are missing here, and what I had talked about so many times, is that EU and Ukraine dare act this way ONLY BECAUSE OF the US BACKING AND ENCOURAGEMENT; the US blackmailing of certain EU countries and politicians also has to be taken into account. THE MOMENT the US IS UNABLE TO DO SO ANYMORE – THIS WILL END.
Specific types of people float to the top in any society when the US turns on its confrontational provocations, directed at pitting countries and people against each other. Such is the nature of the US interference. When they are forced by events outside of their control to turn off this attitude and become a little nicer, confrontation usually stops or lessens. Examples abound. For instance, look at the recent Hong Kong events and China’s Muslim provinces. Look at Georgia, or Chechnya. Consider ISIS and AlQaeda.
Last year I was hoping Germany/Merkel would find courage to stand up to the US and change gears towards Ukraine and Russia, as that would have discouraged the Kiev junta, helping end the war. But Merkel fell under the US completely. If she acted differently, it would have been an easy way out for the EU. Since it didn’t happen, the EU has to be changed through Greece – the hard way. See: New LadaRayLive Episode! LRL6. Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey – Greek Election – EU Breakup.
Are there puppet masters hiding in the shadows? Yes, but they are not so hidden any more. Lately, they all had to expose themselves, which denotes their growing weakness. I call them Anglo-American elites. From my long-term observation, I think this is a more accurate label than most. Some call them NWO, cabal, etc. It doesn’t matter – whatever name suits you.
The important thing is that they do pull Obama, Merkel, Poroshenko’s, and EU politicians’ strings. The puppet masters must weaken sufficiently for the change to occur.
This is directly connected to the nearing end of the petrodollar era.
Incidentally, There will be no US and/or dollar collapse this year (2015), as many are predicting.
The change will start being manifest in 3D physical reality between 2016-18. It will be gradual process, so don’t expect a huge explosion. This kind of seminal change cannot be completed in one day.
